Scientists in Brazil have found a virus with a genetic profile that they have never encountered before, according to a new research paper.
The scientists reportedly found the virus in a Brazilian lake in the city of Belo Horizonte. It has been named the Yaravirus after a Brazilian mythological figure of importance known as “Iara.” Scientists are fascinated by the mystery of finding this state-of-the-art virus, and are intent upon understanding its genome.
“Here we describe Yaravirus, an entity that could represent either the first isolated virus of Acanthamoeba spp. out of the group of NCLDVs or, in alternative evolutive scenario, it is a distant and extremely reduced virus of this group,” the researchers wrote.
“Contrary to what is observed in other isolated viruses of amoeba, Yaravirus is not represented by a large/giant particle and a complex genome, but at the same time carries an important number of previously undescribed genes, including one encoding a novel major capsid protein. Metagenomic approaches also testified for the rarity of Yaravirus in the environment,” they added.
Technology reporter Mike Wehner tried to downplay concerns about the ramifications of this new discovery in the aftermath of the coronavirus epidemic.
“With all the hype surrounding the coronavirus scare, you’d be forgiven for seeing the discovery of such a new and unique virus as potentially troubling. Thankfully that doesn’t appear to be the case,” Wehner said.
“Only a relatively small percentage of viruses are actually dangerous to humans in any form. We have no reason to believe Yaravirus is any different, but it does present a unique opportunity for scientists to add to their knowledge of virus genomes,” he added.
However, concerns over this state-of-the-art virus seem well-founded considering how experts believe that the current strain of coronavirus that is sweeping the world could be a bioweapon.
University of Illinois College of Law professor Dr. Francis Boyle, the man who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, has stated his belief on the record that coronavirus is a bioweapon.
In addition, a training exercise put on by the Gates Foundation last year was centered around a virus that started in Brazil and traveled the world to kill 65 million people:
Event 201, which was hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, took place in October 2019 and featured a simulation in which a novel zoonotic coronavirus spread throughout the world and caused 65 million deaths worldwide. In the preparedness scenario, the coronavirus started in Brazil rather than China.
“Once you’re in the midst of a severe pandemic, your options are very limited,” said Eric Toner, a senior scholar at the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins University. “The greatest good can happen with pre-planning.”
The event was hosted in New York City and attended by some of the most influential business leaders, government officials, and health officials. Attendees claimed that it really helped them rethink how they would handle disaster preparedness if such a situation were to arise…
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and globalist World Economic Forum helped to put on the event…
Billionaire oligarch Bill Gates has warned – or perhaps threatened – that a pandemic is coming that could kill millions, and a globalist response would be necessary in response to it.
“In the case of biological threats, that sense of urgency is lacking,” he said. “The world needs to prepare for pandemics in the same serious way it prepares for war.”
The age of the bioweapon may be at hand, and the globalists will certainly be ready to step in to pose as saviors and consolidate power as a result.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
