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.
New York Partygoers Face Subpoenas, $2K-Per-Day Fines for Refusing to Submit to Mandatory Contact Tracing
This is the Orwellian nightmare.
Nine partygoers are facing subpoenas after refusing to submit to invasive contact tracing measures from authorities that would invade their privacy rights.
The situation stems from a party that was held in Rockland County, New York on June 17, drawing a crowd of roughly 100 people, most of whom were in their 20s. The party was a violation of state edicts issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that were in place at the time banning gatherings of over ten people.
Eight guests at the party ultimately tested positive for coronavirus, which prompted county officials to send contact tracers to harass others who attended the party. The young people were not about to comply with the harassment from the snoopers.
“My staff has been told that a person does not wish to, or have to, speak to my disease investigators,” said Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert, who serves as Rockland County health commissioner, on Wednesday.
“They hang up. They deny being at the party even though we have their names from another party attendee,” she said about the individuals who have been contacted for allegedly being at the party.
County officials issued subpoenas on Wednesday to eight people who they believe attended the problematic party. These people will face $2,000-per-day fines unless they comply and assist the county’s Orwellian surveillance program.
Government officials hope to make an example of these people for refusing to surrender to fear and living their lives.
“I will not allow the health of our county to be compromised because of ignorance, stupidity or obstinance, or anything else,” Ed Day, the Rockland County executive, said at a news conference.
Big League Politics has reported on how government officials have used COVID-19 hysteria to eviscerate privacy rights and normalize Orwellian technology to the public:
AiRISTA Flow, a tech firm based out of Maryland, is marketing bracelets that would beep whenever a person comes within six feet of another individual in the workplace.
“When people come within six feet of each other for a period of time,” the company wrote in a press release about their creepy and invasive device, “the device makes an audible chirp and a record of the contact is made in the AiRISTA Flow software system.”
The technology would also allow employers to track every violation of social distancing edicts committed by their workers. The workers could then be reprimanded, or even fired, based off of the information gathered by the device.
The Redpoint Positioning Corporation is developing similar technology to turn employers into quarantine enforcement brigades. They have announced that they are working on modifying “cutting-edge technology … already used by leading companies worldwide in third-party logistics, auto manufacturing, mine operation” to be used in the enforcement of social distancing edicts. They plan on tagging people and products in the workplace to allow employers to institute Draconian restrictions on the freedom of movement.
“If social distancing parameters, such as a 1- or 2-meter radius, are violated between workers, the tag alarm will alert them to the hazard,” Redpoint wrote in their press release.
“If an infection does occur, historical data from the system will allow for highly accurate contact tracing, as records can show the individuals who were near the infected party,” they added.
Israeli surveillance firm SuperCom is repackaging services that are used on criminals to enforce home confinement on ordinary people in the workplace. They are calling their service “PureCare,” and it is described as a “state-of-the-art solution for quarantine and isolation monitoring to aid government efforts in containing and limiting the reach of infectious diseases.” They claim it is “a non-intrusive patient friendly system that constantly tracks patient location within buildings, vehicles and outside.”
They noted in their press release that they have experienced a sharp increase in “government agencies looking to restrict the spread of COVID-19 among their general population” and anticipate “additional potential industry demand for electronic monitoring services coming from the incarcerated American population.”
SuperCom talks in a cavalier fashion about how their technology will be used to treat ordinary law-abiding citizens like criminals.
