Remember last months article in which I stated:
“expect another global epidemic or pandemic of some kind in the near future”.
Well we didn’t have to wait long for the next terrifying killer. A pernicious, crippling, and deadly disease ready to infect the world – that is if one believes the scaremongering propaganda already being broadcast by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Centres for Disease Control (CDC), and their pathetic mainstream media!
From Reuters, 29th Jan 2015:
“Companies and scientists are racing to create a Zika vaccine as concern grows over the mosquito-borne virus that has been linked to severe birth defects and is spreading quickly through the Americas.
Zika is now present in 23 countries and territories in the Americas. Brazil, the hardest-hit country, has reported around 3,700 cases of the devastating birth defect called microcephaly that is strongly suspected to be related to Zika.
The Geneva-based World Health Organisation (WHO), stung by criticism that it reacted too slowly to West Africa’s Ebola epidemic, convenes an emergency meeting on Monday to help determine its response to the spread of the virus.
The U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has activated an emergency operations centre staffed around the clock to address Zika, agency officials told Reuters.
On Thursday, the WHO said as many as 4 million people in the Americas may become infected by Zika, adding urgency to the research efforts. Vaccine developers made clear a vaccine for widespread public use is at least months, if not years, away.”
So a vaccine is possibly years away? At least we have something to be thankful for…
One will have to excuse my cynicism, which will hopefully become understandable later on in this article.
The Zika virus, which has been detected in 18 of the 26 states in Brazil, and in 22 other countries in the Americas, is transmitted by the Aedes mosquito. The Aedes mosquito is the world’s most dominant variety of mosquito, and the only two countries in the Americas that don’t have this mosquito are Chile and Canada.
