A friend of mine was wondering what would happen if these viruses got out into the environment. That's an interesting question.

I'm with your friend! When ever I encounter the new lately I find myself wondering about all the ways "This" may bite us in the ass!

A letting checking on the article reveals that the virus is harmless to humans. It apparently is a bacteriophage, meaning that it only attacks bacteria.

However, I have confidence in nature...........I'm sure she'll come up with a solution.
