Same panic happened when drug-resistant staph started infesting hospitals in the early 90's..... the media has had a historically terrible track record when it comes to responsibly reporting heath risks/issues.

I can recall them sounding the klaxons over Drug-resistant staph, hantavirus, ebola, SARS, mad cow, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, H1-whatever Flu...... in case you haven't been paying attention, spoiler, none of those new Superbug-Superplagues ever happened. And that's not counting the total science fiction scares like "zombie deer".

But the reporting was always the same - "Hasn't happened yet" they say and it's off to the next scare.

Ok but anti-vaxxers exist on a wider scale. Phones are used a lot more. A lot more people smoke and have a lower immune system. Come on now

So in the background of Warhammer 40,000, the Dark Age of Technology was one caused by technologies running out of control; self replicating machines, artificial intelligences etc. It would not surprise me if incredibly capable manmade diseases were part of the package. Soon enough in our own world, Nugle's chosen will exalt at the death unleashed on microbial wings under the sun-blossoms of nuclear detonations.

Not my argument. Viruses can be engineered. This one (actually 4) made a large leap in evolution. So large that a hospital needed to sterilize a whole room and rip out part of a ceiling, due to how infectious it was.. This is not making daily news platforms either. Coupled with the fact that around this time last year(jun. 1 to be extract I think) elon musk added a bioweapon air filtration system into his newest cars. In an age where medicine and tech are the backbone of the world; this is dangerous and suspicious.
I understand that isn’t your argument.

But you cite an article about anti-BACTERIAL soap, and claim it’s about viruses. And you mention the new FUNGUS superbug as you talk about vaccines.

So I felt there was a need to clarify.

Edit: also? They ripped the ceiling out because of fungi. Not viruses.

Sorry. At work and was doing some big brain thinking without proper research, but I believe this superbug has the same characteristics as a fungi. That's why there's a bigger fuss in my opinion
