Schmallenberg Virus Yet another ” AccIntental” Vaccine release? or mutation by product?

Most of you will never have heard of this one.

With good reason.

It didn’t exist until recently.

Its managed to spread through quite a few EU Union countries and even as far as Britain.

The  PTB have no idea if it’s a risk to humans,

They have said it was seemingly species limited,

However so far it has affected Goats Deer, Bison Cattle and Sheep,

So far from being limited it would appear it has a cross species ability,

They haven’t mentioned Pigs yet, but you would think intelligent folks might be wondering? and running the odd test?

Not a mention of any such, odd because its proven cross species, and Pigs are the most intensively farmed EU critters apart from fowls.

Nary a mention of any WILD species like Ferrets Stoats etc that seem to be so favoured for catching all sorts of nasties either? or Foxes..all meat eaters eating carcases of any dead young or  aborted debris in fields.

So What?? is it exactly you’re wondering?

It is a Virus..they think. They also think? maybe? its carried by Midges of one species only.

I personally think thats more than a bit weird!

Decades of farming in the areas affected first and others, with midges for millenia of this type existing and biting animals living there and not  ONE report of this before?

They also think?  but I am not sure IF? they are actually thinking, or  just doing some fast spin, thats its carried by the mums to be and passed to young in utero.

Well seeing as it causes stillbirths abortions and deformed young, it would have, if that was the case had a real fast die out as progeny would cease in affected animals.

Any disease that kills the host/carrier, without an easily mass transmissible contagion doesn’t hang round that long.

They also FAIL to mention at all in any way if Males of all the aforementioned species either have it?or are carriers of it. and what? if any symptoms it inflicts on them  ie Sterility would be a biggie.or mutated sperm? or the virus transferred IN semen?

Now heres the BIG curiosity concerning this one.

It appears to be similar to???

BLUETONGUE!

Why is this a biggie?

Because the EU was using a LIVE Bluetongue disease Vaccine until 2008 and probably still is in some areas. they’ve now Swapped to a  Killed vaccine, citing Problems??yeah??? with the live Vaccine!

They say they’ve dropped bluetongue incidence to  less than 50 cases, down from thousands..but gee all of a sudden they have a new Disease appearing?

Not a whisper of they might? consider checking what else was in those vaccines. a couple of years lead in time for an outbreak to gain enough victims to be noticed would NOT be beyond a credible timeframe.

( see prior post re Flying PIGS and the Aussie recall of a vaccine just as HENDRA emerged seemingly instantly  to kill Horses and Humans, comment section)

I apologise for not being able to  place selected paragraphs to  make reading up on this easier and faster, but the original source bans ANY snippets being used.

so here is a list of items concerning this BY industry reporters.

The bits the media  will be too lazy to find, or too controlled to make public for fear of having informed citizens asking embarrasing questions:-)

What SHOULD be of concern to ALL Farmers in EU and UK is the  supposed Guardians OF Animal and farm production safety etc deciding that banning intra country and os sales is Not??? necessary?

Schmallenberg virus “worrying”, says OIE

you bet!

Spring likely to see Schmallenberg spread further

really? its obviously done that for two seasons already…who’s a genius then?

Schmallenberg may survive winter, says EFSA

well hell, it HAD to survive snow and ice already to re emerge last spring…DER! no Brainer time:-)

EU signals potential WTO action against SBV-related import bans

not only are they imposing NO Quarantine restrictions, they intend Forcing trade to continue in spite of some places using their brains and wanting to close doors until it’s sorted.

One big INfected EU coming up!

and remember they think?(not too hard, it might hurt) thats it IS similar/related TO Bluetongue..

so what are they doing?

EU allows preventative bluetongue vaccination

ramping UP a vaccine which just may BE the vector, if it wasnt the older live one..

and if it was in the older vaccine, and an offshoot mutation, the new ones hardly likely to work or help..

might help it change again.

But it’s ok, chill out

someones written a report. whoopty doo!

EFSA to publish report on Schmallenberg

Whats in this item shows that with a 2 YEAR lead in, heaps of Biolabs and vets and assorted specialists in animal health etc etc.

they still have no idea and not much of an action plan.

They seriously expect us to believe a sudden ONE species specific,  Midge carried disease erupted spontaneously in varied areas of the EU, and also in UK. across Species.

Thats as good as Hendra suddenly appearing in Aussie  fruit bats, and affecting horses and via them humans and canines.

BTW Aus seems to have done NO research on Cattle who would be likely to  be at risk, OR feral pigs who would be eating dead Feral Horses who magically?

DO NOT seem to be dropping like flies unlike well fed nutritionally superior VACCINATED  Horses..
