Mysterious virus have been reported in a city north of Raqa
Reports of a ‘mysterious’ virus have been reported in a city north of Raqaa known as Tel Abyad city.
The virus has left many unwell residents in the northern city and trickled down to Western Raqaa as well.
As of 3 February 2016, 20 people had died from the virus, the symptoms appeared at fist to be similar to influenza.
Activist group, Raqaa is Being Slaughtered Silently reported that distress signals were sent to various medical and humanitarian agencies but had not been answered.
Swine flu deaths in Tartus, Murhardh and Latakia were recorded, the first being a 26 year old doctor by the name of Tony Saba at the Tishreen Hospital in Latakia.
Government acknowledgement of the disease however has not been forthcoming and what is more worrying is that in addition bird flu has also been found in parts of Syria such as the Northeastern town of Qamishli and across the border in Turkish towns such as Urfa, including the death of many birds in South Qamishli bird farms.
In Canada, newly arrived Syrian refugees showed signs of flu when 11 of them reached the Edmonton Catholic Social Services, although apparently with no pre-existing conditions.
Even while the Government play down numbers, this has not stopped panic amongst Syrian residents and parents have resorted to keeping their kids home from school and taking over-priced flu vaccines they believe are specifically for Swine flu but are not.
IS fighters are apparently in a panic as they fear the virus may wipe out its fighter so are handing out leaflets and appealing for doctors to come to the region.
Swine flu is very similar to ordinary strands of flu but have more severe side effects, however it tends to affect more vulnerable persons: children, elderly, pregnant women and those with pre-existing health conditions, to the point of fatality.
Bird or avian flu rarely affects human as it is passed bird to bird but of course there have been cases of humans being infected even leading to death.
TAP – Wars provide great opportunities for mass killing of civilians or military forces by means of vaccine and other medical interventions. Gulf War Syndrome was a recent example. Spanish flu in 1918/1919 was an earlier operation of the depopulationists. Those who stayed home, survived. Those who sought medical assistance, or went to hospital didn’t.
