Chikungunya virus hits North Carolina, Tennessee, other U.S. states
State health officials of North Carolina, Tennessee, U.S. Virgin Islands, Florida, Nebraska and Indiana have all reported their first cases of the viral disease, none of which were reported to be infected in the continental U.S. As of June 10, 2014, there have been a total of 39 chikungunya cases in the U.S. and its territories, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC says all 39 cases of the illness were contracted by individuals who travelled to the Caribbean Islands, were more than 130,000

Re: Chikungunya virus hits North Carolina, Tennessee, other U.S. states
southern United States, it’s that time of year again: Birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and thousands of baby mosquitoes are hatching in your weird uncle’s neglected swimming pool.

But this year there’s a new problem child: Aedes aegypti, otherwise known as the yellow fever mosquito. Typically brown with white markings, this mosquito is a highly aggressive biter, generally found in hot, humid areas like Mexico and Central America, and sometimes the American south. But this year, mosquito control managers were concerned to find a bunch of Aedes aegyptias as far west as southern California, and they’re multiplying quickly. The female of the species lays up to 200 eggs several times a season, just above the water line in containers of standing water.

Mosquitoes That Transmit New Virus Found In Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Health officials say mosquitoes that can transmit a new mosquito-borne virus have been found in Kansas, though there haven't been confirmed cases of the virus among people.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports chikungunya is a new mosquito-borne virus that's spread quickly in the Caribbean since December.

There haven't been any confirmed cases of the virus in Kansas. But Charles Hunt, state epidemiologist, says two types of mosquitoes that can transmit the disease have been found in the state. Hunt says the disease isn't normally fatal, and symptoms can include fever, muscle and joint pain, rash and headaches

and let's not forget that Bill Gates (a self-declared proponent of population reduction) has been working with mosquitoes to transmit "vaccines" to people who refuse them ... I highly suspect that this is just part of his "work" to fulfill the Elitist agenda to drastically reduce the population in the US (south)

the posters that keep hitting on the word "virus" are probably Medical Mafia shills, because to begin with there is no such thing as a "virus" (i willnot go into that again right now), and the thing that infects you is a fungus.

Notice how many times (for job security), just on this page alone, the Medical Mafia shills have used the word "virus" to erase any form of the word FUNGUS from your mind.

So now you all, just take your Candigone, shut down this thread, and your mouth, until you get some learnings into your compromised brains.- and the first and urgent one willbe Tinea Incognito.

From a friend who works in Public Health:

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as of June 17, 2014 there are 80 confirmed cases of Chikungunya in thirteen states, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Fifty seven of those cases are in people who recently visited the Caribbean. Once a person becomes infected, there's an incubation period of three to seven days. The most common signs of the virus are fever and multiple joint pains. The virus is not usually fatal but extremely painful; it arose in Africa in the 1950s, the name “Chikungunya” comes from the Makonde language meaning 'bent out of shape” describing the contortion brought on by the pain of the virus.

Re: Chikungunya virus hits North Carolina, Tennessee, other U.S. states
southern United States, it’s that time of year again: Birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and thousands of baby mosquitoes are hatching in your weird uncle’s neglected swimming pool.

But this year there’s a new problem child: Aedes aegypti, otherwise known as the yellow fever mosquito. Typically brown with white markings, this mosquito is a highly aggressive biter, generally found in hot, humid areas like Mexico and Central America, and sometimes the American south. But this year, mosquito control managers were concerned to find a bunch of Aedes aegyptias as far west as southern California, and they’re multiplying quickly. The female of the species lays up to 200 eggs several times a season, just above the water line in containers of standing water.

Florida scientists prepare to release hundreds of thousands of genetically modified mosquitoes
Published time: December 06, 2012 21:21
Edited time: December 07, 2012 01:29

Hundreds of thousands of mutated mosquitoes could soon be unleashed in Florida, but don’t worry: scientists say they have a plan.

It might sound like something out of a low-budget horror film, but the US Food and Drug Administration really is considering whether or not they should allow scientists to send thousands upon thousands of genetically altered insects into the wild.

If all goes as planned, mosquitos modified by some serious Frankenstein treatment will be introduced into the Florida Keys and ideally mate with skeeters that carry the deadly dengue fever, passing along in the process a fatal birth defect that will hopefully eradicate the offspring before birth. From there, scientists say they expect the population of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with the dangerous disease will be decimated in only a few generations without causing any major implications for the native ecosystem.
