Ok so this may seem strange...

Early this morning at around 4:00am I received a phone call from my brother. He was watching CNN and said there was a breaking news story of a small pox outbreak somewhere in the mid-west united states and also there was a health threat in NYC. It was very early and he woke me up, so I don't remember all the details. I didn't turn the TV on either, I figured something this huge would be all over the news outlets in the morning, but when I got up and checked, not a mention of it anywhere. Was anyone out there watching CNN at 4:00-4:30am monday morning, august the 20th 2007? This would be very interesting indeed if it were true and then covered up, or perhaps it was a dry run for the start of the "pandemic" hype that will put everyone in FEMA camps for refusing to get a vaccine....

could be the aftermath of the fire at the Deutche Bank building. The building was being torn down due to mold infestation and there was asbestos in the builind. The fire burned thru the polyeurethene (I think it was poly) shield installed to keep the bad stuff in during the dismantling of the building. Hazmat crews were testing the area to see if there was a breach. They claim there isn't

It could also be the inspection of food vendors that was done in the early morning

I search "smallpox" in Yahoo News and came up with an article about a smallpox "scare" in Oklahoma earlier this month

So I spoke to my brother again, and he said that the outbreak was reported in Jamaica and they were worried that the hurricane was going to carry it on to the states and that people along the east coast would require vaccinations. There were interviews with doctors and they showed someone who had died of small pox. Why can't I find anything on this anywhere!

Let's hope to God that this isn't the case because any report of small pox this close to home will do nothing if not start a panic. If this is true then you can guarantee no flights will be allowed in.
Surprising nothing on this. Are you sure your brother was delusional from being up at that time of morning?

You know I was just thinking that perhaps he heard wrong because I too can find absolutely nothing on this. Perhaps he heard that the hurricane destruction could be or is the worst disaster they have had since the small pox outbreak in 1951 or something like that.

I did a search on CNN and found this:
CNN broadcast 8/20 4:00 am

Sounds like it may have just been a "what if" situation they were talking about.

Who knows what the news is up to on this one. I wouldn't be surprised they would mistake a couple cases of severe Herpes Varicella Virus for being Smallpox. The likelihood of a Smallpox outbreak in recent times is very minimal as the only known laboratories that house the virus are the CDC in the United States and the Institute of Virus Preparations (also known as the State Research Center for Virology and Biotechnology) in Russia. This does not mean that there are no samples of the virus left elsewhere, but the risk of an outbreak is minimal at best; especially for a region like the Midwestern United States. This coupled with the fact that the currect vaccine for Smallpox is quite effective reduces the risk for a mass outbreak even further.

A form of Smallpox vaccine has actually been around since the late 1790's and basically retains it's original form and functionality. It was developed from the Vaccinia virus that affects cattle populations instead of Human Variola Vera Virus, which in turn cuts the risk of transferring an infection through the actual innoculation.

There is little evidence to suggest that Smallpox is still present in the environment or anywhere but those two previously mentioned labs. In fact, Smallpox is the only known human pathogen to be completely eradicated from nature. The chance of an outbreak remains minimal.

Did you read the link I provided above? It was not a news story about small pox. It was a learning program that taught about disaster related topics. Small pox was one thing they touched upon.

Closettrekkie,

Admittedly no. I believe I was still typing my response to the original posters question when you replied. Good find though, as that may have been what they were talking about.
