Is it a risk to human health?
As yet, no human cases of Schmallenberg virus have been detected in any country, and the most closely related viruses only cause animal disease. Early
assessments of the virus suggest that it is unlikely that it can spread to humans.
German researchers have looked at the virus’ DNA and found it lacking genetic sequences that would make it a threat to people. However, human
implications cannot be ruled out completely until there is a better understanding of the virus.
Because this risk cannot be ruled out, pregnant women are advised to avoid close contact with animals that are giving birth, as there is a theoretical
risk of infection from sheep, goats and cattle that could harm a woman’s own health and that of her unborn child.
Very few pregnant women are likely to come into contact with an infected animal. However, pregnant women who do so are advised to seek medical advice
if they’re concerned that they could have been infected by farm livestock.
Well after 10 minutes of research (lol) im a little worried. Its quite a weird Virus, with a pretty strange replication strategy. Its also RNA (which
means it mutates alot) that will make it harder to create a Vaccine.
Right now there are very little informations available. There is no genome available on NCBI and only 13 articles on pubmed most of which contain no
The only thing i did find was the sequence of the RNA Polymerase, i ran a quick protein blast on it and got nothing. Nada, which is weird because it
usually always finds at least some cuisine or relative.
Fact is that Bunyaviruses are not very well known however they are known to infect Humans too. Im not in the mood of panic right now. But i hope
research will be focused towards a vaccine ASAP. Because i have a feeling that this virus is here to stay.
"The problem with orthobunyaviruses is that their segmented genome makes the emergence of new combinations very easy, just like with influenza
In a recent outbreak of a new orthobunyavirus in Peru, the pathogen, named Iquitos virus, turned out to have combined S and L segments of a known
virus called Oropouche and the M segment of a new virus."
Whether the Schmallenberg virus could sicken humans is unknown. At least 30 orthobunyaviruses have been associated with human disease.
Perhaps it's a GMO "birth control" or "abortion" virus in the making?
That could be true. Maybe it's a test on how it works on Mammals before they engineer it to affect humans. They have been planning the depopulation
agenda for years. Like someone said about the Georgia Stones they need to get the population down to 500 million. And the way to do that is to
covertly kill people by bio-engineering new and nasty diseases. This then takes the blame away from them onto some strange new disease they will say
just popped up. Most of us will know that those diseases don't just pop up but there are people that are still asleep to the wider implications of
the covert agendas.
You just have to look at Agenda 21 and Codex Alimentarius. A great example of this is the documentary made in 2005 called 'Esoteric Agenda'. It
details Agenda 21 and how it will affect the Human Race. It's scary.
GMO's, Monsanto, Big Pharma poisons, Bovine Growth Hormones, Flouride, the list goes on. Then there are the strange bans on certain foods, fresh
milk, herbs, vitamins, etc.
The human race cannot live without food and water. What better and more effective way to control the human race by poisoning the food and water
That could be true. Maybe it's a test on how it works on Mammals before they engineer it to affect humans....
Humans dont need to engineer it for humans. The Virus is already doing that all by itself.
Its a Lifestock disease thats transmitted through Insects. Humans are always very close to lifestock. So the virus gets chance after chance to mutate
itself so it can infect us.
Dont forget that its an RNA virus, they mutate very frequently all by themself.
I dont know the virus very well due to the few informations that are available. But i think if we dont eradicate the virus soon it will at one point
jump to humans. Right now only developed countries are endemic which is good since in germany they have excellent measueres to track and exterminate
disease (EHEC was dealt with very quickly) If this virus gets to asia or africa then that would be quite the disaster.
The most sensitive living things to radiation are in the womb. They call it a virus, but it is only affecting (mutating?) newborn animals? And many
species? This year? My bet is Fukushima. Now we begin to see... now we pay the price.
I am feeling selfishly glad that no cases have been reported from Africa yet as we seem to be foremost in some peoples minds when it comes to virus
But just to add that when I first heard about this on one of the UK's MSM news channels I was immediately suspicious. How is it that this was
"discovered" in November and suddenly four months later there are thousands of cases in the UK and by the sound of it spreading rapidly to various
other parts of the globe?
It seems that as soon as "they" discover and name a virus it becomes deadly or were there similar deaths prior to these incidents but we did not
know what was causing them?
Yay the thread made it to the recent ATS recap, THANKS BRYAN!
he tied it right into the GMO organ failure crop thread too, smooth.
It's spread to 4 more countries in just DAYS, wow. if you guys read between the lines of the "food" talk, its clear what health officials are also
worried about that right now ahead and out of public eye, is its only the cool/temperate MIDGES that are biting and spreading it between livestock
farms (sheeps, cattle, goat) but what about when the WEATHER WARMS UP and sub/tropical MOSQUITOES start spreading it by SUMMER?
indeed since its an RNA virus similar to Influenza, its bound to jump to HUMANS once mosquitos do the dirty deed, and give the midges a break.
In other news, LYME DISEASE is gaining a strong foothold in NORTH AMERICA and this "TICK" season threatens to be a brutal one.
