This could just be another jolly jape for the fear and panic industry, remember Swine Flu, Bird Flu, SARS, MRSA, Mad Cow Disease, AIDS, the hole in the ozone layer, the new ice age, nuclear war or any of the other things that were going to kill us but didn't?
After an inauspicious start when it was discovered in the heart of Ugandan forest about sixty years ago to mysterious genetically-modified Mosquitoes in Brazil, the latest existential threat to humanity (most notably to pregnant women who get infected) is the ominous-sounding Zika virus.
The epidemic is spreading rapidly from its epicenter near the place where genetically modified mosquitos created for the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation were released into the wild in Brazil, thus threatening disaster at the Olympics with female athletes being advised to "consider participation very carefully", to Colombia (with 2100 pregnant women infected), and further north in America with CDC confirming 6 cases in Texas.
Now above you have a perfect example of how the fear-and-panic industry works, its purpose being to sustain the power elites in power by keeping us so scared we will believe only the government can protect us from the many threats we are exposed to every day of our lives.
But consider (very carefully), while Zika poses a serious threat that women who become infected in the early stages of pregnancy will give birth to babies with microcephaly (a very small head, probably accompanied by developmental problems)how is that a threat to women athletes in the Olympic games. Those competitors haven't dedicated themselves for years to achieving excellence in their chosen sport just so they can get pregnant at the Olympic games.
As previously reported here, The World Health Organization is convening an Emergency Committee under International Health Regulations today, concerning the Zika virus ‘explosive’ spread throughout the Americas. The virus reportedly has the potential to reach pandemic proportions — possibly around the globe. But understandingwhy this outbreak happened is vital to curbing it. As the WHO statement said:
“A causal relationship between Zika virus infection and birth malformations and neurological syndromes … is strongly suspected. [These links] have rapidly changed the risk profile of Zika, from a mild threat to one of alarming proportions.
“WHO is deeply concerned about this rapidly evolving situation for 4 main reasons: the possible association of infection with birth malformations and neurological syndromes; the potential for further international spread given the wide geographical distribution of the mosquito vector; the lack of population immunity in newly affected areas; and the absence of vaccines, specific treatments, and rapid diagnostic tests […] The level of concern is high, as is the level of uncertainty.”
Zika seems to have come from of nowhere, but it has been around for over seventy years. Though it was first discovered in 1947, cases only sporadically occurred throughout Africa and southern Asia.
In 2007, the first case was reported in the Pacific. In 2013, a smattering of small outbreaks and individual cases were officially documented in Africa and the western Pacific. They also began showing up in the Americas. In May 2015, Brazil reported its first case of Zika virus — and the situation changed dramatically. Which suggests that the virus has also changed dramatically. As a result of what?
Let's remind ourselves that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, only recently declared over, was like no pervious outbreak of the disease. And I can claim to have been one of the first to break the news to western audiences that shortly before the outbreak the United States Department Of Defence biological Warfare Agency obtained a patent of the Ebola virus and had a team in Africa working in weaponising the disease. Sounds too similar to be coincidence?
"You may say that, I could not possibly comment." as the saying goes.
Even though the virus poses no great threat to human adults or children other than pregnant women, the BBC reports, an alarming mixture of confusion and fear is blighting the pregnancies of thousands of women across this teeming tropical city in the northeast of Brazil, and wherever else the Zika virus has infected people. And the conspiracy theories have not even started yet.
