The new, rare strain has killed 1 in 4 infected, researchers say



A deadly, airborne new strain of fungus has emerged in Oregon. It has killed nearly one out of four known affected people so far and might also attack animals ranging from dogs to dolphins. And it is likely to spread, researchers now warn.

Take a shot at the cause of this... Any thoughts? I guess those who stocked up on jock itch medication will be the last ones to live!

This may be the same mentioned in this thread, and not saying this doesn't deserve 2+ threads. Scary stuff. How is this related to Morgellons, if at all? Morgellons has a well-researched fungal factor. Any attempt to block out the sun, and prevent moisture from rising, has been proven to cause an increase in molds, fungus, and other ground-level bacteria growths. Let's look at the "global warming" issue, and see if it holds water.
Looks like it's holding lots of water on a reality level.

Killer fungus seen in Pacific Northwest





The symptoms of infection include chest pain, a persistent cough, shortness of breath, fever, and weight loss. The fungus can also cause meningitis, or inflammation of the membranes lining the brain, but can be treated with antifungal drugs. C. gattii is found in soil and trees, but experts haven't yet determined how humans breathe it in.

yes, we are talking about the same.


Treatment Medical treatment consists of prolonged intravenous therapy (for 6–8 weeks or longer) with the anti-fungal drug Amphotericin B, either in its conventional or lipid formulation. The addition of oral or intravenous flucytosine improves response rates. Oral fluconazole is then administered for six months or more. Unfortunately, antifungals alone are often insufficient to cure C. gattii infections, and surgery to resect infected lung (lobectomy) or brain is often required. Ventricular shunts and Ommaya reservoirs are sometimes employed in the treatment of central nervous system infection. [edit]

And I'd like to include what I said there:

This is obviously the "shareholder invested" "cure" for this, and this is only one more disease to concern with. Whoever predicts this leading-to-surgery conclusion is probably very hung up with their methods. We should look for other solutions!

I'm trying to round up as much information as possible. Fungus is more than likely responsible for illnesses across the board... The connection to autism in interesting. We've seen what... A 6000% increase of late? Morgellons seems to coincide with the timing of this. If you're going to unleash hell... Fungus is certainly effective enough because it gets everywhere even in the brain.

Good and bad... It's airborne, so the rate of illness could climb just as high as the common cold. Unfortunately, this has a kill factor of 1 and 4... Might want to stock up on GSE.

Hey, perhaps they'll start marketing athletes foot medication like shampoo... "Foot spray, take me away!"

I'd be contacting your local station, if that's the case. Look for any archived stuff... I'm joining in.

Wow- just in time as swine flu dies out.

Quite interesting, that.....

Perhaps the fungus is angry at all the ravenous hunters of magic, medicinal and edible mushrooms and has decided to exact revenge!

You could be on to something. The 1 in 4 might be those dudes with lawn bags making round trips to cow pastures. I tell you what... Plucking something from poop doesn't sound too appealing. On second thought... I doubt the two are related, but I could be wrong.

Tell your stockholders you'll get it right with Fungus?

This is also in BC and Alaska, and its obviously viral warfare, targetting dolphins too. Project Anglo Saxon that Bill from Project Camelot comes to mind.

Its time to really stock up on food and water, and even energy devices. Don't allow them to round people up into fema, at all.

Also, 10 grams of vit C the powder is best, taken in smaller doses frequently, and 5 grams of D. Or MMS (can't take the C at the same time, 2 hours before or afterwards, but can inbetween).

Those dang dolphins, always getting into mischief and causing concerns.

Guess it's time to finally take them out.... with a fungus...

Viral warfare at it's most efficient.

Very Interesting, surprised not to hear it was spotted on a news station. Yet again ATS beats the media to the punch.
