How many millions have to die before people start to realize what is happening? For years, I have been persistently warning that we would soon enter an era of great pestilences, and now it is here. Sadly, what we have witnessed over the past few years is just the tip of the iceberg. At this point we have been perfectly primed for future pandemics because vast numbers of people all over the planet are now running around with compromised immune systems. That means that diseases will now be able to spread even more easily, and this is a trend that we have already started to see all throughout 2022.
Strep A is the latest illness to run wild in the western world. The number of children being admitted to the hospital with Strep A is way above normal in the U.S., and this appears to particularly be true in the western half of the country…
A deadly wave of Strep A infections in children looks set to take off in the US — weeks after the UK was hit by a spate of deaths.
At least two children have died in Colorado after suffering the normally-mild illness, and pediatric hospitals in five states — Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Washington and West Virginia — are reporting much higher levels of admissions than usual.
At the country’s largest pediatric hospital in Texas, doctors are already handling four times more Strep A patients than last year.
But this has not been a typical Strep A outbreak.
In fact, hospitals are reporting that children are coming in with very strange symptoms that are not usually associated with Strep A at all…
One of the largest children’s hospitals in Missouri is seeing an influx of children with bizarre Strep A symptoms – as the outbreak continues to spread in the US.
Children’s Mercy Kansas City Hospital has had seven children in recent weeks come in with symptoms like a ‘stuck’ eye, lumps behind the ear and trouble swallowing – which led to drooling.
Doctors were initially perplexed by the cases – but further testing found each child was suffering from Strep A. The normally-mild bacterial infection is causing a spate of hospitalizations across the US, UK and Europe.
So what is going on?
Is this a new form of Strep A that is more severe than we have ever seen before?
Right now there is so much that we do not know.
But what we do know is that Strep A is also spreading like wildfire in the UK and elsewhere.
This is an outbreak that we will want to keep a very close eye on, because it could end up killing a lot of kids.
Meanwhile, a “mystery disease” that causes “bleeding from the mouth and nose” has erupted in Afghanistan…
An unknown pathogen has infected more than 80 people and killed two children in the Afghan province of Zabul, Taliban authorities said. The disease causes intense fever and bleeding from the mouth and nose.
Taliban public health chief Abdul Hakim Hakimi said that clinics in the Shahjoy district of the province have seen a sharp increase in the numbers of people suffering from the “suspicious” disease in recent weeks, Afghanistan’s Hasht-e Subh Daily reported on Tuesday.
Hopefully this illness will be able to be contained in Afghanistan, because it sounds like it is really bad.
In China, health officials are dealing with a “thermonuclear” outbreak of COVID. According to one projection, there will soon be 800 million Chinese cases…
CHINA is facing a “thermonuclear” Covid outbreak says one expert, as hospitals and crematoriums start to overflow.
