Germany’s superbug is weaponized with Bubonic Plague DNA 09 Jun 2011 “On Tuesday [May 31], the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that [leading German E. coli researcher Helge] Karch had discovered that the O104:H4 bacteria responsible for the current outbreak is a so-called chimera that contains genetic materia from various E. coli bacteria.


It also contains DNA sequences from plague bacteria, which makes it particularly pathogenic.” …Helge Karch, the director of the Robert Koch Institute (Germany’s CDC) who heads a consulting laboratory at the Münster University Hospital in Germany, says that he has discovered that the super killer contains DNA from E. coli, which is what he expected.


It also contains DNA from the organism that causes plague, responsible for wiping out a quarter of Europe’s population during the Black Death (1348-1351). Bubonic plague is caused by Yersinia pestis and is one of the most feared of all disorders. [courtesy]
