- Hello, Jeff - I have a list of the countries that received
the virus. The virus was sent out in the Fall, October and the "mistake?"
not noted until March 25th.
- A written report to be sent from various labs announcing
that they have destroyed the virus. Lebanon, Chile, Brazil, Bermuda, Israel,
Mexico, Saudi Arabia are among the countries that we shall have to accept
at their word that the virus was destroyed.
- This entire situation is beyond belief and, I believe,
they are hiding much more.
- We may find that a recombinent pandemic strain is the
very "weapon" the murdered microbiologists had information on.
- Countries in which at least one laboratory is currently
known to have
- received virus samples:
- European countries
- Other countries
- Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China
- The Republic of Korea
- Saudi Arabia
- United States
- Robert G. Webster, a flu expert at St. Jude's Children's
Research Hospital in Memphis, called the incident "a terrible, terrible
mistake. I have been telling WHO for a number of years that this is a dangerous
virus that is still out there in more labs than they know," he said.
"This may alert WHO and Homeland Security and whoever wants to know
that each and every H2N2 sample from 1957 needs to be rounded up and locked
- Neither the College of American Pathologists nor Meridian
Bioscience was aware that the virus being shipped was the deadly 1957 strain,
said Jared Schwartz, a pathologist and spokesman for the college. The college
asked the company to ship a type A strain of virus, he said, and Meridian's
paperwork indicated that this strain was benign. "For reasons I don't
understand and Meridian doesn't understand, the documentation they had
was incorrect," he said, adding that the source of the mislabeling
was unclear. Meridian may have obtained the strain from another company
that had misidentified it, he said. Even had Meridian known it was the
deadly H2N2 strain, Schwartz said, current federal guidelines would have
allowed the company to ship it. He said that neither the college nor the
company was aware CDC was considering whether to reclassify the strain
as too deadly to ship. Schwartz said a mechanism is being established to
require anyone shipping pathogens to notify the CDC about what strains
of virus are involved.
