Here we go again. it's SuperSARS. Has Donald Rumsfeld run out of money again or have the elites finally decided on a population cull.

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Sunday March 31, 2013 04:00author by NineCoronas Report this post to the editors

RT have been running stories following developments regarding the discovery of a new SARS like coronavirus which has a mortality rate of 50% and is transmissable between humans. Is this the one that kills off most of the great unwashed and lets the elites roam free to spend their ill gotten loot in a fascist marshal law paradise?



It's that time again, where we all shit ourselves in fear that we might catch the latest slightly suspicious looking deadly virus that mysteriously appeared in some rather odd place.

This time it's a SARS like coronavirus which is transmissible between humans and has a 50% mortality rate as compared to 11% for the original SARS.

Interestingly, one of the UK patients who contracted it also had a dose of H1N1 at the same time. How odd is that?

Corona viruses are transmitted via aerosol like the common cold or seasonal flu.

Whatever about swine flu, which was little more than a hugely hyped money making exercise for Donald Rumsfeld and his pals at Gilead sciences which manufactured "Tamiflu", it looks like this one is far more dangerous if you are unlucky enough to catch it.

Apparently it likely originated from Bats. However Saudia Arabia is not exactly the first place I'd expect to find a whole lot of Bats.

^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^

Sooooo.......Either one of the US bio weapons test subjects escaped from his black prison in Saudi Arabia, still chock full of a heady cocktail of H1N1 and the latest coronavirus bioweapon, which they were trying to use him as an incubator to "cross pollinate", or the elites, having harvested enough wealth from the great unwashed scum and wishing to live out their days in heady luxury without having to put up with too many useless eaters wandering around killing their buzz with those big eyes and ribs showing, gave the nod to their captive bio scientists, or this is just nature finally getting the recipe right to rid itself of a respectable chunk of the human menace that is contaminating the planet in an uncontrolled orgy of consumption excretion and the mass extinction of other earthlings. Or for the religious amongst you, perhaps it's retribution from god for having the wrong religion / wanking / reading Richard Dawkins / checking out spunout.ie / {insert arbitrary sin here }

See you all in the afterlife then, where nobody gets the flu. (but if they did then 17 ex virgins would no doubt devotedly take turns mopping their fevered brow. Bliss! ;-)

For the rest of us, might be an idea to stay away from the Arabian peninsula for a bit. (or a bat?) ;-)

Here's a link from 2010 regarding the last "plannedemic". Didn't hear anything about this aspect of the swine flu "plannedemic" on RTE, although I did hear plenty of fearmongering about swine flu in every news broadcast, including that prime time clip of trusted figure Charlie Bird getting his shot (of saline!) on camera to encourage the plebs to go get theirs. I believe the Irish health service stockpiled 1 billion euro worth of "Tamiflu" and vaccines under the watch of Mary Harney, big friend of big pharma.

Swine flu “false pandemic” seems to be biggest pharma-fraud of century

New bird flu threat emerges in China. This time it's H7N9
6 dead already.

http://rt.com/news/bird-flu-alert-drugs-340/

http://rt.com/business/shares-fall-china-flu-375/

Quote:
"Shares in Chinese airlines declined to their lowest in nearly four years following the news of six deaths from the H7N9 bird flu virus.

The deaths are more than a third of the 14 confirmed human infection cases in China. Most of the affected were on the eastern coast near Shanghai. Mass slaughter of poultry has been ordered in the region and all live poultry markets are closed.

Earlier in the week Shanghai issued a level 3 flu alert, the second lowest stage of four.

The number of flu victims has been low, it's believed, due to the fact the H7N9 virus cannot be transmitted from human to human. The WHO says no such cases have been registered so far."

As of today, 13 dead, out of 51 who have contracted virus.

Chinese mainland only

No human to human transmission yet reported.

Corona virus update:

Nothing much happening in the news regarding the corona virus yet.

15 infected, 9 dead, mostly in Saudi Arabia

Some more in depth info here:
http://www.nature.com/news/receptor-for-new-coronavirus...12584

interesting, they are finding it difficult to get test animals (like ferrets or mice) infected.
It was test ferrets that saved us from the baxters bird flu pandemic before.

Guess they aren't making the same mistake this time!! ;-)

Coronavirus update:
Another fatal case pops up in France.
that makes 18 deaths in total for the coronavirus. It's spreading.

H7N9 update:
nearly 30 deaths out of 120 reported cases for H7N9. One Taiwan case, a man who visited China. Still limited to the Chinese mainland so far.

Finally these new viruses are getting noticed.
Here is a rather decent article by Ralph Nader on the topic posted this weekend.

Time to boost worldwide sales, $23 billion p.a. is not enough, bankrupt governments like ours can always find money for vaccines, after all they are so safe and effective (sic).

author by 9 coronaspublication date Tue May 14, 2013 15:50Report this post to the editors

That's for sure.

Mary Harney found almost 1 billion euro for Donald Rumsfelds "Tamiflu" during the swine flu Hype.

I reckon much of that is out of date now probably so it will have to be thrown out. What a waste of money!
