The virus is so deadly it would kill 150 million people in just two years.

Health experts have warned that a new type of super flu could wipe out 900 million people, 15% of the world’s population, leaving governments unable to cope with the unsustainable amount of sick people.

According to a new simulation of the virus, it could also be weaponized by the government to trigger mass deaths across the world.

The virus, which is airborne and spread by coughing, is so deadly it would kill 150 million people in just two years.

According to The DailyStar: It is unclear exactly how terrorists would release the virus, but fears have previously been raised about airborne diseases being turned into weapons.

Deadliest epidemics in history

The shocking study was carried out by scientists at Johns Hopkins University in the United States.

The flu is not actually real but is based on models of new pathogens that are currently emerging.

Dr. Eric Toner, of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health Security, warned countries are not prepared enough for the next global epidemic.

He said: "We don’t have the ability to produce vaccines to a novel pathogen within months rather than decades and we don’t have the global public health capabilities that would allow us to rapidly identify and control an outbreak before it becomes a pandemic.

"It will happen, but I don't know when."

Rare Medical Conditions

Earlier this year, a new deadly illness knows “Disease X” emerged, with the World Health Organisation (WHO) saying it could wipe out millions.

Classifying it as deadlier than Lassa fever and Ebola, the WHO said: ”Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.”

Fears were even raised it could kill more than Spanish Flu.

The pandemic wiped out 40 million people after first being discovered in 1918 in the United States.
