Zoonotic Disease Infects Thousands In China After Factory Leak
Plant Based News ^ | 09/19/2020 | Sarah Donnelly

Posted on 09/19/2020 6:01:06 PM PDT by BenLurkin

The outbreak was caused by a 2019 leak of contaminated waste gas at a pharmaceutical plant that manufactures animal vaccines. The firm was found to be using expired disinfectants, allowing residual bacteria to be released through exhaust gasses.

It is thought the leak began in late July and continued until late August last year. In December, it was reported that 181 people at a nearby veterinary research facility had been infected, and in January, authorities revoked the plant’s vaccine production licence. The full scale of the outbreak has not been widely reported until now.

In addition to the confirmed 3,245 cases, another 1,401 residents have tested ‘preliminarily’ positive for brucellosis, and more cases are expected.

Is this the same pharmaceutical plant that is making the meds we use?

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

The false positive rate was 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

If a quarantine saves just one child's or one old fart’s life, it's worth it.

To: null and void; All

just so you youngun’s know - I grew up on a farm way back when. Brucellosis has been around for many moons! Locals called it “Bangs” back then.

When I was about 6, some poor farmer in our county had the misfortune to have a few cows come up with the bacterial infection. The word went out around the county, and my dad brought a home pasteurizer, so we could pasteurize the healthy raw milk from our pristine herd, “just in case”, right?

The pateurized milk tasted nothing like the sweet raw milk I was used to at 6 years of age. It had a burnt rubber under taste. I never got over it, and do not drink commercial milk to this day.

Maybe if I had my own cow, and could drink milk in it’s natural state, I would. But, I don’t think “independent senior living” would let me tie Bossie out to my patio porch!

I am reminded go the song about parking lots... “you don’t know what you have until it is gone”...

It is interesting that they are trying their best to scare the kids/ignorant city dwellers with this latest “we’re all gonna die unless we let the .gov run our lives” nonsense. We have raised a couple of generations of ignoramuses!

The liberal loons who apparently don’t think we have enough dogs in shelters HERE are importing it, along with other deadly diseases.

“After the Wuhan Flu, only wake me up if its a genuine Zombie disease.”

I’m pretty sure the zombies are the sociopathic offspring of democrats who are destroying the country right now. That zombie has already left the barn.

Brucellosis is a wicked pathogen. It causes abortion, blood dyscrasias, severe joint inflammation, blindness, and organ failure. I encountered it infrequently in practice from cattle and dogs...later just in dogs once it was eradicated from cattle. I was always in fear of contracting the disease after I had treated a cow or dog that was positive for the disease. Even though I was careful the danger was still there. I know of two veterinarians that had to quit working because the symptoms of the infection were so severe.
