Let's start here: the list of SARS symptoms is indistinguishable from the symptoms of ordinary pneumonias and flu. That's right. If you took two people---one who had been diagnosed with SARS and one who had some regular pneumonia or flu---you would not be able to eyeball the difference. I know that people don't want to believe this, but they also don't want to believe that a stock they just bought is worthless junk that is heading into the toilet. Sometimes you have to see the facts before the facts burn you. Okay. Now, here are a few stats for Canada. The first is from the Canadian Institute for Health Information: "Overall, influenza/pneumonia is a major contributor to deaths and hospitalizations among the elderly. It is the leading cause of death from infectious disease in Canada." This statement was made in 2001. Here is the second stat, from Statistics Canada: In 1996, there were 7627 deaths from pneumonia and influenza in Canada. So we could say right now that the leading cause of death from infectious disease in Canada is SARS---because one cannot tell the difference between the symptoms of influenza, regular pneumonia, and SARS. But we would be better off saying that the clinical diagnosticians in Canada don't know what they're doing, can't make a positive diagnosis of SARS, and are shifting cases of traditional flu and pneumonia over into the new SARS category. Now, people want to counteract these subversive comments by pointing out that SARS cases are only those people who have the new coronavirus. However, this would be a lie. The Canadian researchers have already admitted that with even the most sensitive tests, they can only find evidence of the virus in 40 percent of the SARS cases. And in those 40 percent, the amount of virus they are finding is so miniscule they don't know how it could be causing disease at all. You may still be hanging back, not wanting to believe me. But if you had a cough and a light fever, and someone snatched you out of your office and put you in a compound on the premises and told you you had to stay there for a month and could receive no visitors, you might begin to change your mind. In China, they are doing a lot worse than that. I'm getting exclusive reports from a foreign contact in Beijing. Here is the latest. In the two major hospitals there that have been sealed off, even non-SARS patients cannot receive visitors. Medical personnel who live on the grounds of those hospitals---and many do---are virtual prisoners. Two university dorms and their 500 residents have been sealed off. No one can leave. Contradicting Western claims that there is no test for SARS yet, Chinese officials say they have one and are using it. They say they can run 10,000 blood samples a day. Who knows what kind of test this is or what it is actually measuring. Since the Canadians need a PCR procedure---which amplifies super-tiny gene fragments---to even detect the possible/maybe/could-be presence of the coronavirus, one must be suspicious of the Chinese test. It could be measuring antibodies to anything under the sun. People are lining up at drugstores in Beijing to buy drugs that are hyped as prevention against SARS. Well, sure. They're hoping to suppress a future cough that might land them in a sealed off area under guard. Pets are now being cited as possible carriers of SARS. This may lead to people tossing their dogs and cats out into the streets to fend for themselves. The science-hysteria has reached a fever pitch in Hong Kong, where researchers claim there are now six versions of the SARS virus, and a person may recover from one only to get another. Also in Hong Kong, newspapers are reporting that people who have no symptoms of any kind will be quarantined as...what? Carriers? Thirty families have already been sealed off under some such pretext. Back on mainland China, in Canton, where hundreds of cases have been diagnosed, there was a major trade show last week. Hello? The government apparently doesn't really think the disease is that serious. Major corporate activity goes on. People fly in and out. Moving on: Australian press sources confirm that in the Victoria province, police have been given the green light to forcibly detain SUSPECTED SARS cases. Ditto for Western Australia. The Australia Herald Sun reports that Hong Kong doctors are now classifying some cases of organ failure as SARS. People who at first present with lung infections then develop organ failure=SARS. Well, that can happen with regular pneumonias too. Soon we may see people with kidney failure who never had lung infections classified as SARS---thus bringing into the fold new and artificially inflated case statistics. "Yes, he died of kidney failure, but he was coughing a little too, so let's call it SARS." The Australians and possibly researchers from other countries will begin testing drugs against SARS. According to the Herald Sun, among these are "16 AIDS drugs, 13 herpes drugs, and seven drugs aimed at flu and other viruses." The AIDS drugs will shred immune systems. They stop replication of all cells in the body. They are basically chemo compounds. So more people will get sick, that will be called a SARS complication, and there will be deaths. These death stats "from SARS" will escalate, thus painting a more grim picture of the "disease." One aspect of this whole global scam is the number of deaths occurring in hospitals. Patients and doctors and nurses. As you might already know, hospitals are great places for catching diseases. In this regard, a Reuters dispatch of April 23, passing unnoticed, is quite important: A new study out of the University of Arkansas shows the health danger of mold that gets into hospital water supplies: "An important cause of illness and death in patients with weakened immune systems." "70 percent of the 368 water samples that were obtained" contained molds. The study is published in the journal Blood. 2003;101:2542-2546. The implications of this study are rather awesome. Patients in hospitals for any reason, patients whose immune systems are suppressed for any reason (including the drugs they are being given) are at risk for more serious illness and death because of mold. And if you have ever seen anyone with a mold infection, you know you may see a cough and respiratory involvement. "Let's call it SARS." What are the mold conditions in hospitals in China, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada? Hospitals, rather than being places where patients are treated, can become self-fulfilling prophecies for inflated SARS statistics. It would be like having a microscope you use to analyze blood. You don't realize that this particular microscope is shedding particles on to the slide and those particles are toxic to people who are immune-compromised. So you say, "Wow, I'm seeing disease particles that show this person with this blood sample is sick." You think the microscope is helping to diagnose, but it is spreading disease. That would be a rough analogy to a hospital that is treating illness but is actually a fertile soup that is causing it. And finally, from Taiwan, I'm reading reports that airline passengers who get off planes are required to have their temperatures taken. If they refuse, they can be hauled off and also fined 60,000 Taiwanese dollars. Oral or rectal? Reposted with permissions from here.
