Scientists Mystified - "Tip Of The Iceberg" - Did We Create This Monster?
By Susan Duclos
A series of questions are going to be asked at the end of this article, simple questions that are not being asked by the mainstream media, Congress or anyone for that matter, but these questions are obvious when one looks at the publicly available information, which brings up the main question of why is no one asking?
Starting with a NYT article showing that 38 states now have confirmed cases of the enterovirus 68 also called EV68 and EV D68, which as the NYT headline states "mystifies scientists." The article explains that hospitals across the US are being inundated with children, most very young children, to the point where in some cases they have to divert ambulances because they have no more available beds or capabilities to treat these young patients.
The article explains that 226 cases of EV 68 have been confirmed according to the CDC, and that it is "likely many times that number." An example of how fast this is spreading and to the numbers, just one hospital, Childrens Hospital Colorado, saw 3,600 children from August 18 to September 24, and roughly 10 percent of those children had to be admitted.
The key sentence comes five paragraphs in to the article, "Enteroviruses are common, but this strain is not."
Moving along to the next article of interest at USAToday, highlighted by Live Free or Die in this a previous piece at All News PipeLine, we see a report from Alison Young, discussing the extremely high number of "accidents" occurring at "bioterror" labs across the US. From 2008 to 2012, over 1,100 of them, with the most recent ones highlighted, including the following that occurred in May:
During the same month at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, a lab worker suffered a cut while trying to round up escaped ferrets that had been infected with a deadly strain of avian influenza, records show.
As a side note but which really should be addressed in another article and will be after more research, we see that not only are we experimenting with the deadly strain of Avian Flu, not in some isolated building away from civilization, but in a hospital where children are brought from all over the country to be treated, but in the first paragraph we see a mouse escaped (later recovered) with a "virus similar to Ebola."
Looking at the symptoms of the EV 68 virus that has scientists mystified, we see from the CDC website: • Mild symptoms may include fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, and body and muscle aches. • Severe symptoms may include wheezing and difficulty breathing.
Coincidentally, looking at the symptoms of the Avian Flu from www.flu.gov, they include: • Fever and cough. • Acute respiratory distress. • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing.
The CDC and the U.S. Department of Agriculture jointly run the Federal Select Agent Program that oversees government, university and private laboratories working with dangerous viruses, bacteria and toxins called "select agents" because they're deemed to pose serious threats to people and agriculture and could potentially be used as bioweapons. Most of these facilities are "high-containment" laboratories operating at biosafety levels 3 and 4, the highest levels. Each level has increasingly sophisticated safety equipment and protocols to protect researchers from infection and keep deadly pathogens from being released.
The Government Accountability Office, which is the investigative arm of Congress, has warned for years that no single federal entity is responsible for oversight of high-containment labs and there are no national standards for their design or operation. It isn't even known how many high-containment labs are in operation nationwide because those working with dangerous pathogens that aren't on the federal "select agent" list — such as tuberculosis, MERS-CoV coronavirus and some potentially deadly bird flu strains — aren't required to register with the CDC-USDA program.
We have bioterror labs, to which we do not even know how many are operating, do not have proper oversight, are experimenting with deadly viruses and pathogens, have a remarkable number of "accidents," and yet no one is even asking if once of those accidents could be responsible for this "new strain," of EV 68 which is baffling the scientific community?
Is it a coincidence that new strains are being seen? Is it a coincidence that a bioterror lab accident with a "deadly Avian Flu" sample just happen to occur at a children's hospital? Is it a coincidence that the symptoms of both are so similar?
These seem to be logical, obvious questions to be asking, not asserting but at least asking, yet the MSM, Congress..... no one seems to BE asking them..... at least not publicly.
