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.
Italian Study Claims Pfizer’s COVID Vaccine is Half as Effective in Obese People
Obesity may make it more difficult for the immune system to generate enough antibodies.
Italian scientists have found that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine could be half as effective in obese people.
The results of their study showed that compared to healthy people, obese healthcare workers generated only half the antibodies after receiving the vaccine. The scientists thus suggested that obese people may need another round of the vaccine or bigger doses.
These results are consistent with previous findings which say that the flu vaccine may only be half as effective in obese people as it is in healthy people. Vaccines in general may be less effective in obese people because their immune systems are more impaired due to constant inflammation.
This study, however, only included 26 obese people, and so it could be too small of a sample size to make a definitive connection between obesity and fewer COVID antibodies generated.
In other COVID vaccine news, Big League Politics recently reported that Donald and Melania Trump received the jab before departing the White House in January:
Former President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump received a coronavirus vaccine at the White House in January, according to new reporting Monday from Axios, citing an unnamed Trump advisor.
Three American coronavirus vaccines were development through public-private partnerships during Donald Trump’s presidency. President Trump urged Americans to receive the coronavirus vaccine during his CPAC speech on Sunday.
“We took care of a lot of people — including, I guess, on Dec. 21, we took care of Joe Biden, because he got his shot, he got his vaccine,” Trump said during the speech, his first extended public remarks since leaving the presidential throne. “So everybody, go get your shot.” Biden had gone on to falsely claim that President Trump hadn’t overseen the development and rollout of a vaccine, despite receiving it while his predecessor was President.
Legitimate scientific consensus indicates that the vaccine is largely safe to receive, although individuals with serious health conditions may experience side effects. President Trump and the First Lady had come down with the coronavirus in October, with the couple spending several days at Walter Reed Hospital in DC to recover.
