Want to experiment with this stuff? On ATCC.org, you can buy freeze-dried Zika Virus - how fun!

Full Title: Deadly Zika Virus Available For Sale Online, Courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation

I feel like the title should read "...Courtesy of ATCC", since that's the name of the organization that has the virus for sale, anyway moving on:




"Name of Depositor: J. Casals, Rockefeller Foundation"



For profit corporations will pay $516.00 and if you are working in the Non-profit sector, there’s a bit of a discount, you’ll only pay $430.00. Not looking for Zika? No worries, they have lots and lots of other viruses and biological agents for sale.


Shouldn't there be some sort of law forbidding the public from playing with stuff like this?



www.healthnutnews.com...



The "About" page for ATCC: www.atcc.org...

"ATCC is the premier global biological materials resource and standards organization whose mission focuses on the acquisition, authentication, production, preservation, development, and distribution of standard reference microorganisms, cell lines, and other materials. While maintaining traditional collection materials, ATCC develops high quality products, standards, and services to support scientific research and breakthroughs that improve the health of global populations." Gee, I guess we should be thanking you.




Found something on investmentwatchblog, it seems to just be a title and another link, but posting it here anyway: investmentwatchblog.com...

This is a bit worrying. However, this article states they (Free Thought Project) sent in an application to buy the virus and are still awaiting approval. I'd like to read a follow-up article to see if they did get approved.

The article also mentions Genetically Modified mosquitos were created to combat the Dengue virus. How does that work?

They genetically modified mosquitos, and released something like 10 million males into the wild. These genetically modified mosquitos have a gene that causes their offspring to die before reaching adulthood.

The company responsible for the genetic modifications was called Oxitec

So if you had a bit of money to set up a company, basically any Tom, Dick or Harry could buy some nasty viruses? What a brilliant idea, what could possibly go wrong

And west Nile, sars, bovine and Avion viruses, ebola, probably HIV too.

Such a waste of time and money. If any virus were too NATURALLY end a large portion of the human species it would of happened in the past 200000 + years when we were living in huts and caves.

The only viruses to fear, are those being stored, sold, and used by "scientists".

For the betterment of mankind obviously.

That's all we need, someone weaponizing mosquitoes.

This is to keep people from getting a big head when they do well at something.

A couple of questions come to mind here:
1. Since this virus is freeze-dried, is it still viable as a virus?
2. This virus was also obtained from a Rhesus Monkey in 1947, is this the same Zika virus that is infecting humans now?

Both are great questions and I'm actually not sure about the answers to either of them. I wish there were known members who have experience in epidemiology.

I'll try doing some research in the meantime though

I do think even though it is freeze dried, that it could still be viable as a virus:

www.bbc.com...




An ancient virus has "come back to life" after lying dormant for at least 30,000 years, scientists say. It was found frozen in a deep layer of the Siberian permafrost, but after it thawed it became infectious once again.





and it does sound like this is the same Zika virus/strain as the one that was discovered in 1947:

en.wikipedia.org...



Zika virus (ZIKV) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae and the genus Flavivirus, transmitted by daytime-active Aedes mosquitoes, such as A. aegypti. Its name comes from the Zika Forest of Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in 1947.




The virus was first isolated in April 1947 from a rhesus macaque monkey that had been placed in a cage in the Zika Forest of Uganda





A second isolation from the mosquito A. africanus followed at the same site in January 1948.[40][41] When the monkey developed a fever, researchers isolated from its serum a transmissible agent that was first described as Zika virus in 1952. In 1968, it was isolated for the first time from humans in Nigeria

Hey, good research and thanks for the quick reply!

The most disturbing part of this is that Zika is an example of another virus, like Ebola, that is trans-species.

I wasn't aware that these agents were available to the general public. Someone with a bit of wherewithal and the necessary knowledge could cause a lot of problems with this.

The article from Free Thought Project, detailing their experience with submitting an order to actually order the virus

thefreethoughtproject.com...





After initially trying to buy the virus, we were prompted to create a user account on the website. After that, we were led through a dozen pages of forms, where we were asked information about our organization, tax ID # and the biosafety level of our lab. While this seems to be tight security, we were able to input false information and fudge the requirements to complete the application process. We are still waiting for our application to be approved, but we did not have to upload any type of proof that we are a legitimate facility.


Well that's disconcerting - we'll see if they report on any updates

That's true. The genetic modification only works if the mosquitos don't encounter tetracycline. But Brazil has an agricultural industry that is heavily dependent on antibiotics, so the rivers and cattle are doped up with tetracycline.

The virus has been adapting to the human genetic code:

www.dicyt.com...

If you want to see the raw genetic code (amino acid's), just look here:

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...

The scary thing is that scientists know the structure of these virus particles down to the purpose of the individual genes.
(NS1, NS2A, NS2B, NS3, NS4A, 2K, NS4B, and NS5). These are interactions with the immune system such as interferon.

Here's something interesting:

Research into using freeze-dried calicivirus to control the population of rabbits:

www.dpi.nsw.gov.au...

"It is well recognized that freeze-drying increases the stability of many virus preparations and allows for storage at either room temperature or standard refridgeration temperatures." This is a benefit, as it can be used on the rabbit population whenever they need it.

No, calicivirus is not the Zika virus but it does sound like freeze drying a virus can still keep it viable.

This is BS.

Anybody can fake an application. It's just like faking a resume. You'd probably get away with it if nobody checked the application, but that's why there are people who review the information submitted.

The person reading the application will perform the necessary checks to ensure that the applicant is a legitimate laboratory with approval to work with hazardous materials.

The application put in by these "Free Thought" idiots is going to be rejected.

If it doesn't get rejected, this will trigger a major investigation into the organisations distributing hazardous materials and viruses.

The fact that there is a website listing samples of Zika virus is nothing new, nor does it mean that any civilian is able to purchase dangerous virus samples.

Some people see the name Rockefeller and immediately think of a big, global conspiracy, apparently involving every single operation undertaken by the Rockefeller group. I find these people have little understanding of the corporate world - Mr Rockefeller himself is not personally orchestrating every transaction made by his conglomerate.

There are online ordering places for radioactive materials. And just like with biological stock, you have to order on behalf of a legitimate company. That's not to say that there isn't an illegal market, but I assure you, you will not find this market on Google. If someone sells radioactive material or a hazardous biological sample to a random civilian, they'll face serious legal repercussions, too serious for anybody to risk.

Zika virus is not a pandemic. Zika virus is a scare tactic orchestrated by western countries to attempt to force certain contraints or behaviors to people. It is a scare tactic as in the past the Mad Cow, the 2009-2010 Swine Flu and the recent Ebola and many more.

There is no point in even giving the least of credibility to whoever says otherwise. There's no pandemic, no emergency and no goddamn nothing different than it was 3 months ago. Some very limited number of people are infected by these types of viruses all the time, and western governments in specific occasions remembers to show them in the news for either deceptive or geopolitical garbage in which they have been engaged since they orchestrated the phony war on terror.

well-said. Here are a few links on Zika that I think illustrate what you've mentioned in the post above

No, maybe you should look into what's involved in becoming a lab that has bio safety level 2 before spouting such nonsense.
