Bongino: Military Officials Say China Will Invade Taiwan–Another Virus Being Worked On?

On his show, Dan Bongino said that credible military officials are saying it is not a matter of if but when China will invade Taiwan.

He said that the war would likely be costly to China even if they won.

He then dropped a bomb.

He said they are currently working on a virus called “Nipah.”

It has an extremely high fatality rate:

From Fox News:

Nipah virus is naturally found in fruit bats of the genus Pteropus, though it can jump to other animals, including humans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The virus can cause swelling of the brain known as encephalitis, and symptoms can include fever and headache, followed by drowsiness, disorientation and confusion. People who are infected with the virus may fall into a coma within 48 hours of showing symptoms, according to the CDC.

The virus is highly lethal, with a fatality rate up to 75%, according to the World Health Organization. That’s much higher than the fatality rate for COVID-19, which has been estimated to be around 2% overall, using data on cases and deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. But Nipah virus is much less contagious than the coronavirus causing COVID-19; for example, the coronavirus delta variant is estimated to have a basic reproduction number, or R0 (pronounced R naught), of around 7, which means that each infected person spreads the virus to an average of seven other people, according to NPR. In contrast, the R0 for Nipah virus is estimated to be around 0.5, according to the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.

Nipah virus was first discovered in 1999, when it caused an outbreak in Malaysia and Singapore linked to pig farms that killed more than 100 people, according to the CDC. Since then, the virus has mainly caused outbreaks in Bangladesh and India.
