    Report: Research Facility “Loses” Thousands of Tubes Containing Deadly Virus

    A French research institute working on various deadly viruses, including SARS, has apparently misplaced thousands of tubes and no one is quite sure where they went.

    A routine inventory check at Paris’ Pasteur Institute revealed that 2,349 tubes containing fragments of the virus responsible for the deaths of 774 people in 2002 were missing, the centre named after French chemist Louis Pasteur said.

    It is not clear how the tubes disappeared from one of the institute’s safest laboratories. Management were made aware of the loss in January, Le Monde newspaper reported.

    For weeks, staff at the institute tried to find the missing vials, general director Christian Bréchot said.

    “We’ve looked for those boxes [containing the tubes] everywhere,” Bréchot explained.

    “We went thought the lists of all the people who have worked here in the past year and a half, including trainees. We have scrutinised their profile to check if there was any conflict.”

    Bréchot said that foul play was “highly improbable” but had not been ruled out.

    Though it’s not clear how, investigators have pretty much ruled out foul play. But keep in mind that we’re talking about a deadly virus that has been removed from what should be a highly secured area.  Moreover, no one seems to know when the virus was actually taken.

    According to the Pasteur Institute, however, there is no immediate danger because the virus in the vials won’t spread the disease:

    The institute was quick to reassure the public and said that the contents of the missing vials had no infectious potential. They contained only part of the virus and had no ability to spread.

    “Independent experts referred by health authorities have qualified such potential as ‘non-existing’ according to the available evidence and literature on the survival of the Sars virus,” the institute said.

    When dealing with deadly viruses, it is always a good idea to secure your facility, which makes this particular disappearance alarming.

    Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn.

    “It’s actually not in itself so scary but you wonder about the procedures in that laboratory,” said Schaffner, who is also a former president of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. “Could that lab and perhaps others actually misplace vials that have the complete virus so that it might escape?”

    For all we know, the vials disappeared months ago, which brings up the possibility that other infectious disease tubes may have also disappeared.

    Apparently, security at these high level research facilities is not up to par. Last year a vial of Guanarito bio-terror agent capable of being used in a “contagion attack” disappeared from a Galveston, TX facility. The incident was voluntarily disclosed to the public but the lost tube has yet to be located.

    What’s scary is that, even though such events must be reported to the CDC by law, the public really has no way of knowing whether a deadly agent has been compromised, giving ample time for such a virus to spread should it be released as a weapon.

    Moreover, we now have government facilities being built in and around population centers such as the Bio Safety Level 4 facility centrally located in Kansas.

    In the wrong hands, one of these agents could easily be used to attack an entire population – and given the “security” of these facilities it may not be so hard to acquire one. And once they have it, it’s as simple as releasing it in a major airport, sitting back, and watching the infection spread and kill off thousands, or perhaps millions of people.

      • Considering we can’t even secure our nuclear facilities, I’d say we’ve got a serious problem with this virus research facilities… How many tubes go missing each year that we don’t know about?

        All this talk about terrorist, terrorism and safety… when something like this happens it shows just how ridiculous all of these safety initiatives really are… it’s laughable.

        Secure our borders… secure our nukes… secure viral research facilities… secure our water supplies… secure our grid… then you can talk to me about domestic terrorists.

            About time someone made a move to arrest the LE committing crimes.

            Some upstart activist news agency should do citizen arrests and film it. When LE show up, it’s not their choice whether to follow through or not. Theirs is to book them.

        • Be informed says:

          Unlike a nuclear bomab that needs a certain amount of critical mass to become a weapon, a biological weapon needs only a tiny fraction of a deadly pathogen, some common chicken eggs, and a medical type incubator. One tiny tube and something like smallpox could be growen into many deliverable weapons that could kill millions. This is what is so horrible about a virus, its fuel are the hosts that it kills. Bacteria such as anthrax or plague can also be growed in the right environment. It would only take one of these terrorist groups to get a SMALL sample of one of these antibiotic resistant bacteria strains and it is then turned into a weapon that could be worse than a hydrogen bomb. If antibiotics don’t work then pneumonic plague is almost 100% fatal for example.

          The most frightening of the viruses are of course the hemorrhagic ones. Ebola, Marburg, Lassa Fever, all sorts of others like CrimeanCongo, even Hantavirus. The misconception of many of these viruses are that certain viruses like Lassa Fever are not that deadly. It is the particular strain that one of these is. The Zaire strain of Ebola is the worst, with 90% fatalities. Marburg is usually 50-75%. Lassa Fever is 3-10%, but the worst strain which is rare that I can’t remember the name of, something to do with Nigeria, can reach Marburg level and is one of the most contagious germs there is. It is spread through rodent waste usually like hantavirus is. These labs around the world keep these potential mass killers very unsecure.

          It really is not that many samples are taken to worry about so as much it is a really highly virulent tiny sample being stolen and then incubated. Someone stealing lots of a germ probably don’t know how to disperse it as a bio-weapon. Some terrorist that gets a tiny specimen without much news coverage of it, or none at all is what is to fear. Someone like this knows what they are doing and can grow it in mass and spread it in mass. Depressing thought I know, but the terrorist biological “expert” is only interested in the most potent germ they can get and to keep such a thief as quiet as possible. Let someone at the lab take the blame for misplacing it. There are very wicked evil characters out there like this that want to wipe out millions or tens of millions and we will probably not even have any prior warning about it.

        I’ll bet those vials went missing just before the last ebola outbreaks. They’ve been trying to weaponize them and get them airborne ever since. The last little skirmishes with little mini-outbreaks have been tests.

            A few facts:-

            1. The US miltary has declared it’s intention to create an airborne Ebola virus.

            2. The most recent outbreak in Guinea is a strain never seen before, brand new version if you like.

            3. There is a countrywide WHO measles vaccination programme in Guinea.

            4. 3rd World nations are stopping travel and recalling their nationals from the affected areas, but not the West.

            5. The locals on the ground have expressed their mistrust of the International teams sent into help them.

            6. ABC news is running a story asking if the Black Death that wiped out up to one third of Europe’s population and changed the course of history was in fact an outbreak of Ebola.http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=117310

            As ever draw your own conclusions as to where this is all heading.

            It is my belief that by accident, or more probably deliberate design some form of bioweapon will be used to forward Agenda 21 without causing the environmental and infrastructure damage a nuclear conflict would cause.

            (The North Koreans lead the world in ethnically targeted bio-weapon research, which is the true reason why they haven’t been treated to a regime change as yet).

      @Mac
      Thanks for covering this- important stuff. It’s not the stuff we know about that is so dangerous per se, but the stuff we don’t know about that is real scary! Our own CDC has had their share of ‘mishaps’ and this fits right along those lines.

      I agree ‘security’ and the whole make you feel ‘safe’ thing are only a charade, designed only to collect dollars and keep the sheep moving along.

      Anyone that has not seen the 2006 movie ‘Idiocracy’ yet, should consider it mandatory viewing…this is where we are at, no lie. Only a matter of time before we are all drinking Brawndo.

        I took the advise of NinaO and went stealth on some defensive and food acquiring weapons. Slingshot, compound bow and air rifle. I have found they are not as easy to become efficient in their use as I thought it would be. Lots of movement with the upper body with muscles I have not engaged in years. So I suggest that if any of you decide to go this way, I would go out and buy some muscle pain relief crème first.

      Please forward this to all contacts…
      We are calling on all Oath Keepers who can possibly get here to come to the Bundy Ranch to serve as volunteers on an ongoing, rotating watch. That is not because there is any great emergency, but is a preventative measure – sort of like doing a rotation on the DMZ. I am urging each and every Oath Keepers member who can, to get here and spend a bit of time to ensure that the Bundys are not alone. We need boots on the ground. We want you here, standing watch, which is appropriate for us Oath Keepers since our motto is “Not on Our Watch.”

      So, who needs the site when you have email??
      Send to all contacts asking them to forward to their contacts.

      It’s all a numbers game. While I think a financial collapse is on the way(Pardon the pun). With a growing population, eventually the right sequence is going to happen.

      My money is still on China and their hundreds of millions of petri dishes, err farms. Where human, Ducks, Chickens, and Pigs intermingle their waste and germs and virii.

      It’s going to happen. Just a more random time table.

      There are too many people around the planet intermingling on planes,cruise ships,airports,etc. Sooner or later something will spread and it will be planet wide. Look at all the noroviruses that continue to show up on cruise ships with a lot of people in a confined area. Sanitation is hard to maintain if people don’t wash hands or cover their face when sneezing and heaven forbid if something starts in a third world country and something mutates to the point of easy transfer of a disease between humans. Or the West Nile Virus in birds.

      all I keep thinking about is that guy from the jurassic park movie, bumbling away with the vials. the funny thing is, that none of this scares me in the least. what concerns me is the things we don’t think about. the fact that we pump so many antibiotics down the toilet in our daily flushing routine, because only about 20% of antibiotics are actually absorbed by our bodies. we flush that magic toilet, and poof it all disappears right? we are strengthening microbes on a day to day basis with our inability to see further down the road.
      remember being sick when you were a kid, sure it was hell for a few days, but then you were back in the saddle. now I hear of friends and family that have been sick for weeks, and this is becoming normal.
      we have been screwing with this microbial world for about 70 years, from our medications to our damn food. fat free this, sugar substitute that, its unreal. when our body is low on sugar, our brain sends us the signal, and they used to call it a sweet tooth, now we send gmo artificially flavored garbage down our throat, and our brain gets fooled into believing it has what it needs. eventually something has to give
      to be concerned that these vials got ‘misplaced’ not at all, were too busy killing ourselves with our own lack of seeing what direction that can was kicked

        Last night was a full moon–able to see clearly the skies. The moon had a film in front..really ugly compared to the clear, beautiful full moon of Tuesday night.
        The white streaks criss crossing were obvious chemical sprays were lining the skies being dumped at night.
        Yesterday was a bad day for this area.

            Many (even here) are still ignorant to the threats posed by geo-engineering, otherwise known as ‘chemtrails’.
            There are countless ways and means being used against humanity at this very moment and people just don’t ‘get it’. Many will die the same way- ignorant to the very end. Lead a horse to water and all that, ya know?

      Hard enough to handle the germs Mother Nature throws at us, but to guard against a Weaponise Infection, in a very ignorant populace is almost impossible. On the other side the Government would hold information back in order to keep panic from reaching the streets. Until it’s too late. Incubation periods, symptoms of the disease that mimic other diseases and just the thought of being exposed to the disease with No Antidote.

      Doesn’t matter what kind of disaster comes our way. What matters is what are we going to become. Will we become good helpful people in the time of need, or become animals.

      This just in!!! fox news alert! Your choices for the next president will be either Hillary, Krispy Kreme Khristy, or the new, improved Bush. Fuck this, I am not voting if this is who the media chooses for me. If this country is going in the ditch, it might as well be a Democrat at the wheel. This fucking lot of republicans will do no better. If anything, the people may follow a Repub like Christy to the land of “moderate” gun control more quickly than hearing it from a Democrat. We deserve what we get. Damn it, I am tired of the sheeple going down this road, it’s fucking groundhog day over and over again.

        If Ted Cruz or Ben Foster could get elected, the rot might slow down somewhat. That is, if we even make it to election 2016.

        If any of those you mentioned above are elected, it’ll be “Floor it! Into that giant cesspool of cat shit and battery acid!”

      Pathogens concern me more than any other shtf parameter.

      At home: day 4 of the flu. At beginning of week everyone said ” oh! You better go to the dr.” I feel that one of the things we should be doing is fighting illness sans the dr office as much as possible.
      The day is coming where hopping in the car to run down to the md’s office will be a memory of the past.
      My flu treatment: buttloads of sleep, glass of water on the hour, hot green tea with local honey, breathing in steam to loosen sinus and bronchial congestion, nasal irrigation(Indian neti pot), and a couple OTC medications(aspirin, only if temp above 101, and guaifenesin).
      Modern medicine is amazing but has also been a factor in the wussification of America. My brother is a major wussified hypochondriac that lives at the Drs office.

      Get fit, Preppers. Good water, eat your veggies, walk fast…your gonna need it!

        Sounds like a good flu treatment program to me.

        And like you said, lots of water…Always. Veggies: all colors, if you can get them or grow them. Beets and chard, olives, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, red bell peppers, carrots, collards, turnip greens, mustards…

        And aspirin’s a good drug, in moderation.

      An airborne weaponized form of Ebola would certainly help achieve the Georgia Guide stones population requirement:

      1. MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE

      Going from 7.3 billion people down to 500 million is quite the reduction. I still say bioweapons is how they are going to do it. Just watched the movie ‘The Stand’ last week, and ironically…that’s exactly how the world ended for many…a super deadly airborne virus that gets loose from a military compound.

      We cannot stop the inevitable endgame for mankind, we can only prepare ourselves as best we can. Fight the beast while on your feet, don’t ‘live’ on your knees!

        As of March 26, 2014, Global population is estimated to number 7.157 Billion. To get down to 500 Million is 1/14th.

        America is about 317 Million population right now. If the population reduction is the same percentage across all countries. America will be down to about 23 Million.

        IMHO, were a bug engineered to kill off 93% of the worlds population. The ratio of survivors would be slightly higher in 1st world countries. Countries with less developed societies will have higher death rates as they will not mobilize and fight the disease as effectively.

        Me too. It could be from this story or a multitude of others, but I agree, lets get this party rolling. Apparently the US and EU are arming up the Ukraine through NATO as we speak. Even though the Russians said this is the very thing that would escalate tensions. I think this is where it starts. It should be obvious to anyone with even a partial brain that the world is on the verge of a massive reset and it is intentional.

        Like a lot of people, wncmountainboy, I need more time to prepare for what’s coming. I have “stuff”, and I have some skills, and I’m working on acquiring or sharpening others.
        I need to make a lot of improvements to my place in the country. There are so many things to do, I’ll be stunned if I think about the whole enterprise. I just try to do one thing at a time, think about the next mile marker, so to speak.

        No, I don’t want TEOTWAWKI. I DO rest assured that the statists and collectivists, Communists and socialists, the fat cats, and the rest of the sociopaths who are bringing about the end of the world, are going to reap what they have sown, and it ain’t gonna be pretty. I just wish decent people didn’t have to go down with them.
