Withheld Ukraine Sequences Raise Pandemic Concerns! National H1N1 Epidemic Declared in Bulgaria!

  • Why are the Ukraine flu DNA sequences being withheld? Could it be an entirely different strain? If it is, then all the swine flu vaccines are useless. What people don’t understand is that the swine flu vaccine itself is dangerous!
     
    Withheld Ukraine Sequences Raise Pandemic Concerns
    Recombinomics Commentary 02:30
    November 7, 2009
     
    Right now we know that many clinical specimens and viruses have been sent to one of the WHO collaborating centres for further study. We don’t know the results of those studies, and it will probably take a couple of days for the full analysis of those viruses to be available. But in the meantime, what we do not have is any evidence of viruses there or anywhere else as showing any big mutations. I raise this point because I have seen in some media reports that there are reports that WHO or other groups are saying that there are mutations and I want to point out that these are rumours and factually, untrue.
     
    The above
    comments from Keiji Kukuda offer some general comments on the Ukrainian H1N1 sequences at Mill Hill in London.  He specifically says WHO doesn’t see any “big” mutations in the samples being sequenced, which would refer to reassortment or Tamiflu resistance.  However, the changes seen in Ukraine do not require “big” mutations.  Small mutations, such as SNP can have profound effects for a virus like pandemic H1N1.
     
    That virus normally circulates in swine, and has recently jumped to humans.  It already has many characteristics with the 1918 pandemic strain.  Both are swine H1N1 that jumped to humans. Such species jumpers can increase efficiencies with small changes. One good example is position 627 in the PB2 gene.  That position comes in two forms.  When there is glutamic acid (E) at that position, the PB2 enzyme copies the viral genetic material most efficiently at 41 C, the body temperature of a bird.  However, if that position has a lysine (K), the enzyme is most active at 33 C, the temperature of a human nose in the winter.  The swine H1N1 has an E, which may be why it goes well in lung, which is 37 C and closer to the optimal replication temperature of 41C.  However, a single change that produced the most efficient replication at 37C would lead to even higher levels in the lungs, which could lead to frequent cytokine storms, like those in 1918, instead of the less frequent level seen in Ukraine.
     
    However, the rapid spread of H1N1 in Ukraine (see
    map), coupled with the high frequency of hemorrhagic pneumonia raise concerns that a small change is leading to a more virulent virus.  Similarly, the rapid spread of the virus could also be affected by a small change in another gene, such as HA, which controls entry of the virus to cells and influences tissue tropism.
     
    Mill Hill has acknowledged that they have at least 15 H1N1 positive samples from Ukraine, which would identify a Ukranian specific change.  The delay in the announcement of sequence results raises concerns that such changes have been detected, and such changes are undergoing further analysis.                                                                  
     
    The number of cases in Ukraine continues to expand.  The number of patients with H1N1 symptoms is now
    approaching 1 million.  Cases have been increasing at almost 200,000 per day, so it is likely that tomorrow’s report will have over 1 million cases.  This rapid spread increases concern that the 15 sequences at Mill Hill contain one or more of these small changes, which has led to a delay in the announcement of sequence results.
      
    More detail on the sequences at Mill Hill is overdue.  The rapid spread of H1N1 in Ukraine demands rapid sequence results.  Continued delay will only increase concerns.
      
    National H1N1 Epidemic Declared in Bulgaria
    Recombinomics Commentary 08:57
    November 7, 2009
     
    The Health Ministry made the decision based on the grounds that the number of people with swine flu has reached 210 per 10 000. Thus, all schools in Bulgaria will be in a swine flu break all of next week (9-14 November). The Health Ministry recommends limiting the number and scope of public events.
     
    The above comments describe the declaration of a national swine flu epidemic in Bulgaria.  Earlier this week an epidemic level of H1N1 had been reported in a select number of Oblasts and municipalities (see
    map).  However, this level was subsequently reported for the entire country, so an epidemic was declared.
     
    Although the number of fatalities reported this far are markedly below the levels reported for Ukraine, the rapid spread of H1N1 in Bulgaria raises concerns that there will be a dramatic increases in cases and deaths in the area.  Spikes in deaths have already been reported in Turkey and Italy, although none have approached the numbers reported in
    Ukraine, where influenza/ARI cases are approaching 1 million, and will likely surpass that number in the next report.
     
    The explosion of cases in Ukraine raise concerns that the H1N1 virus has subtly changed, with associated increase in cases and deaths. 
    Sequence
    data on these recent fatalities in Bulgaria and neighboring countries would be useful.

Joseph Moshe Warning on Ukraine Bio-Engineered Flu Virus?

Ukraine’s Pneumonic Plague: A New Strain of Flu Many Times More Lethal Than H1N1?

  • Speculation is still mounting as to what this Ukraine killer virus is. We should know when the DNA signatures are released. But so far no news from the authorities yet. This is definitely a bio-engineered weapon! PreventDiseas.com reports:
     
    There is a very organized and structured system among us to coordinate the release of a weaponized flu with the goal of killing people at unprecedented rates. The pneumonic plague now being witnessed in the Ukraine may be just the beginning of this global effort.
     
    SARS, Avian Flu, and Swine flu appear to have been just trials for deadlier killers such as the current pneumonic plague which is likely another weaponized strain similar to H1N1. Perhaps the pneumonic plague itself is another trial for something more lethal.
     
    There are many questions that have yet to be addressed. How did this virus spread so quickly? Why are the actual numbers not being reported? What has changed in the H1N1 virus to cause this plague or is it a completely new virus? Who is benefiting from the hype or reality of the situation?
     
    The statistics being reported by the Ukrainian government are very misleading. The reported cases have doubled in two days. According to the
    latest updates, there are 478,456 Influenza/ARI cases, 24,003 have been hospitalized, 60 on ventilators and 81 deaths, although the actual figures may be exponentially higher.
     
    With the so-called Mexican Swine Flu, we saw the gross ineffectiveness of national governments and the
    World Health Organization in preventing the spread of A/H1N1, which is a mild virus. This new lab produced virus is a certainly a killer and we can likely expect it to spread throughout the world in the next few weeks or months. The mainstream media seems to be collectively timing the release of this information for some opportune moment. 
    …….
    The pneumonic plague has an acute course than other forms, over and is accompanied by a very high mortality rate. The incubation period of primary pneumonic plague rarely exceeds more than 1-4 days. It begins, as a rule, suddenly – with shivering, fever, headache, myalgia, weakness, nausea. The symptoms of pneumonia – cough with phlegm, chest pain, shortness of breath – usually appear on the second day of the disease. Blood spitting, growing respiratory disorders, heart failure, respiratory failure, shock are being observed. In primary pneumonic plague phlegm usually is watery or mucinous, foamy, with blood or visibly bloody.It can be caused in two ways: primary, which results from the inhalation of aerosolised plague bacteria, or secondary, when septicemic plague spreads into lung tissue from the bloodstream. Pneumonic plague is not exclusively vector-borne like bubonic plague; instead it can be spread from person to person. There have been cases of pneumonic plague resulting from the dissection or handling of contaminated animal tissue. This is one type of the formerly known Black Plague. It could kill 90%–100% of a population if the victims coughed and passed on the bacteria.
     
    A secondary pneumonic plague occurs as interstitial pneumonia. Phlegm is scanty and more dense and viscous than in primary pulmonary plague. It is believed that in this regard, patients are less contagious.
     
    The explosion of cases again raises concerns that the number of fatalities is significantly higher than the 81 listed. Media reports have described an equal number of pneumonia fatalities which were not considered flu related. The basis of these exclusions remains unclear. Similarly, anecdotal reports suggest the number of fatalities is markedly higher than the 81 in the government tables.
     
    The rapid rise in reported infections, hospitalizations, and deaths in the past few days raise concerns that the virus is transmitting very efficiently. Spikes in cases have been reported throughout the northern hemisphere, but the spike in fatalities and the frequency in hemorrhagic cases in Ukraine have raised concerns.
     
    Ministry of Health has not established the exact diagnosis of the epidemic disease in the western regions of Ukraine. Health Minister Vasyl Knyazevich has given information about spread of diseases in the Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv Regions today at the meeting of Cabinet of Ministers.
     
    Answering question of Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko about the definition of the specific nature of the disease, the head of the Ministry of Health said: “The nature of infections is viral one. But at the moment it is not defined, is it the Californian influenza H1N1, or it is our seasonal influenza. To date, there is no precise diagnosis.”
     
    Reports from a few days ago indicated that Ukraine has shut down its schools, universities and cinemas, and banned public gatherings including concerts, movies etc. for the foreseeable future. They have also mobilized military with quarantine units. There is currently a national tightening of borders around the country.
     
    We could be seeing something of monumental importance happening in the Ukraine. An advanced biological genetically engineered killer virus has been released. Some infectious disease experts are asserting that this virus is not A/H1N1 although it may or may not have some of “Swine Flu” genetic material in it.
      
    It is typically behaving like a hemorrhagic fever in the lungs turning them into ‘mush’ and killing the patient. Some reports from the Ukraine are indicating that figures may will be over 1000 deaths, but the numbers are not being released by the government until confirmations are made. Moreover, the virus could have the potential to recombine with those being vaccinated to create a plague that could potentially kill more than 1 million people globally per month.

Bob Prechter: Bear Market Rally Is Over, Stocks Headed For New Lows!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  • I can no longer understand the bullishness of the stock market. It looks excessive and entirely driven by all the money from bank bailouts and QE. I have been wrong in calling for a resumption in the bear market in October. However, I do not intend to be in the stock market because I just don’t understand it any more. How much higher can the market go? It may be wiser to just keep away from the euphoria and let the market work out its excessive extremes. Bob Prechter the uber chartist has some very sound advice:
      
    With the Dow Jones Industrial Average once again marching closer to 10,000, many investors, especially those who missed the rally since March, must be asking themselves: Is now the time to finally pull the trigger?
     
    Robert Prechter, founder of Elliott Wave International, implores retail investors stay away… for now. Prechter, who was bullish near the lows in March, now says the stock market “is in a topping area.” Why? Several factors:
     
    – Slowdown in upside momentum. Recent intraday rallies are petering out before the close.
    Bullish Sentiment. Investors who were bearish near the lows, are now just as bullish after a 60% run in the S&P 500. To Prechter, “that’s a dangerous place to be.”
    General overvaluation of stocks.
     
    Prechter, the author of
    Conquer the Crash, says this is akin to the market in 1966-74 or 1929-32, where massive bear rallies gave way to another “big leg down.”
     
    He’s predicting another crash in 2010 that will bring stocks below this year’s low. His word to the wise, “be patient, don’t rush it” keep your money in cash and cash equivalents for now and wait out this bear market.
     
    He thinks it’ll be another 5 or so years before we turn the corner but the good news is when we do, it’ll be the buying opportunity of a lifetime.

Ukraine Deputy Minister of Health: Swine flu May Have Mutated! Pneumonic Plague?

  • Seems like more people are agreeing it is pneumonic plague. It has a high mortality rate. Only 10% survive this. This is not good. It looks increasingly like the worldwide killer that the Satanic cabal wants to release for mass culling of the sheeple. I am not entirely confident about the source of this article. (emphasis mine)
     
    A Ukraine official has come out saying the H1N1 might have mutated to be the Pneumonic Plague
    The first deputy minister of Health in Ukraine said in a statement that they have a different h1n1 swine flu than the rest of the world and US. In 6 days 500 000 people have been infected, 93 confirmed deaths. Statements from a lot of departments and officials seem to disagree but the fact is that if this is the h1n1 it might of either mutated or this is another swine flu strain.
     
    The reason for this is obviously as stated above and that the strain in the Ukraine has a much bigger rate of filling the lungs with blood. This can be blamed on lack of public health but according to sources this is not the case. The plague or virus in the Ukraine has 10 times the mortality rate than the normal swine flu.
     
    In a paper published in microbiology news called resurecting influenza pandemic strains. The author recognized 5 strains of weaponized flu. Confirmation that this is a mutated version: (or not a mutation of h1n1 but a viral pneumonia which is something different)
     
    1.  250 000 to 500 000 infected in one day, way faster than any other country the h1n1 has been.
     
    2. Many cases of viral pneomonia where the lungs fill with blood,  a much higher viral pneomonia rate than any other country.
     
    3. Ukraine Health minister said himself that “swine flu has mutated”.
     
    4. Much bigger death rate than normal
     
    The most cases are in the rural north west area of the Ukraine. That statistics are not unusual for a few months but this is for a few days. On the ground though, unconfirmed reports say that people are going on as normal, they also say that this is fear mongering. (speaking to locals)
     
    WHO needs to confirm that the genes have are different, if they are not that means the swine flu has not mutated. Everyone is waiting for the gene sequences which will confirm whether this has been hyped up, a real mutated h1n1 or just bad health services in the Ukraine.

Reported Mystery Flu Cases in Ukraine Rise To 871,037 Infected – 39,603 Hospitalized and 135 Dead! Martial Law and Mandatory Vaccination?

  • The picture in Ukraine is still hazy. We need to be highly critical of all reports. Will this be like the Mexico swine flu fear mongering earlier in the year? Or will this be the Big One, the one that kills millions. It does not help that the Ukrainian government has practically applied martial law and intend to implement forced vaccination. It will be difficult to get independent confirmations once martial law is fully implemented.
     
    Martial Law Declared In Ukraine Over Mystery Epidemic
    Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko has all but declared martial law in the country as he announced yesterday that the National Security and Defense Council will become the supreme ruling authority in the wake of a mystery epidemic sweeping the country.
        …….
    A further report from Interfax Ukrainia Agency says the Ukrainian Health Minister Wasilij Kniazevicz has asked the country’s top prosecutor to open criminal proceedings against those who are opposed to the implementation of the mass flu vaccination campaign.
     
  • One thing is certain: the MSM is strangely quiet. There are no hyping up of this Ukrainian mystery flu. So, those who think it is a PsyOp to push through vaccines worldwide are so far incorrect. Of course it may yet result in this, in the coming weeks. The numbers coming in testify to the seriousness of this epidemic. Death by hemorrhagic pneumonia is reminiscent of 1918 Spanish flu. Is the mortality rate under reported? Possibly, but we need real confirmation from independent sources.
     
    Recombinomics Commentary 22:54
    November 6, 2009
     
    871,037 Influenza/ARI Cases
    39,603 Hospitalized
    135 Deaths
     
    The above numbers from the latest
    update from Ukraine (see map) continue to alarm. More than half of the Oblasts and cities listed exceed the epidemic threshold, including Kiev and Kiev Oblast, raising concerns that the increase in case numbers will accelerate.  Moreover, hospitalization of 39,603 raises concerns that the number of deaths will also accelerate, since 11% of hospitalized cases in California died.
     
    Although WHO has suggested that these alarming number may reflect sub-standard medical and housing conditions, the numbers remain alarming.  Mill Hill indicated that at least 15 samples were H1N1 positive, indicating they now have a small database of Ukraine sequences.  Although initial reports indicated there were no “major” changes, which presumably referred to reassortment, and no Tamiflu/Peramivir resistance, further analysis was required to rule out significant changes which were presumably linked to SNPs.
     
    However, because the virus already has demonstrated an ability to cause fatal infections in a disproportionate number of children and previously healthy adults, small changes in the virus could lead to increases in viral load leading to an increase in cytokine storm frequency and hemorrhagic pneumonia, as reported for earlier cases.
    Therefore release of full sequences at this time is warranted. Similarly, more detail on the number of fatal and hospitalized cases with hemorrhagic pneumonia would be useful.
