Inside high security laboratory developing a Zika vaccine – BBC News

Reporter: James Cook

Scott Weaver: Last Year when it reached Brazil, it really exploded when it reached the Americas, infecting probably a couple of million people at this point

James Cook: and should  people we be frightened, especially pregnant women?

Scott Weaver: Absolutely, if you know, if I had a daughter of child bearing age, she was planning a spring break vacation to the carribean, next few months I would strongly urge her not to go there at this point

Note: Prof Scott Weaver is emphatic that Zika is a threat to pregnant women however he said child bearing age was a concern if he had a daughter. Scott Weaver is either a liar or has information on the link between Zika and microcephaly.

Zika is in Africa and the Pacific, so would he be concerned about travelling to those areas? Why not? Is the strain of Zika in Brazil different to those in Africa and Asia-pacific? Oh, the carrier is different possibly, the strain of Aedes egypti, does that have any bearing on the transmission of Zika?

Prof Scott Weaver has no problems with his hypothetical daughter travelling to Zika infested Africa but is concernied with the strain of zika and the strain of mosquito in the carribean?

I was inclined to write off both Prof Scott Weaver and his Galvaston colleague Prof Nikos Vasilakis as liars for not providing the evidence for their assertions. Show us the causal link that gives you the certainty that Zika is linked to microcephaly.

This blogger and others could not understand why they rushed to assert a link without entertaining other possiblities namely vaccines given during pregnancy, pollutants, the impact of malnoutrition or the GM Aedes Egypti mosquitoes themselves.

Then it dawned on me, an unpalatable possibility, they both know that zika passes the placental barrier and impacts fetal brain development. These virologists are amongt a few people that deal with viruses routinely. They would know what type of arbovirus could defeat the placental barrier, they would know what strain of mosquito would be a carrier. Prof Weavers adamant refusal to let his hypohetical daughter visit the carribean starts to make sense. It is also evidence that cannot be shared wihout further questions arising. It also explains why Vasilakis and Rossie were interested in placental fluids on their visit in Dec 2015.

I hope I am wrong. That these f@#king psycopaths would collect viruses, engineer and release them to see the effects is difficult to accept.

Have a look at psycopath Scott C. Weaver’s “encephalitis papers on PubMed. Scotty has been on this topic for 10 years at least. Straight from the horses mouth:
Direct broad-range detection of alphaviruses in mosquito extracts.
“Members of the genus Alphavirus are a diverse group of principally mosquito-borne RNA viruses. There are at least 29 species and many more subtypes of alphaviruses and some are considered potential bioweapons

Extreme Genetic Engineering: An Introduction to Synthetic Biology

ETC Group Releases Report on Synthetic Biology
Submitted on 16 January 2007

“Genetic engineering is passé,” said Pat Mooney, Executive Director of ETC Group. “Today, scientists aren’t just mapping genomes and manipulating genes, they’re building life from scratch – and they’re doing it in the absence of societal debate and regulatory oversight,” said Mooney.

Synbio – dubbed “genetic engineering on steroids” – is inspired by the convergence of nano-scale biology, computing and engineering. Using a laptop computer, published gene sequence information and mail-order synthetic DNA, just about anyone has the potential to construct genes or entire genomes from scratch (including those of lethal pathogens). Scientists predict that within 2-5 years it will be possible to synthesise any virus; the first de novo bacterium will make its debut in 2007; in 5-10 years simple bacterial genomes will be synthesised routinely and it will become no big deal to cobble together a designer genome, insert it into an empty bacterial cell and – voilà – give birth to a living, self-replicating organism. Other synthetic biologists hope to reconfigure the genetic pathways of existing organisms to perform new functions – such as manufacturing high-value drugs or chemicals.
