In the digital age of fast-travelling information, news simply flies. It is almost impossible to keep up with every little detail at once, which is why news needs constant updates to add unknown details which provide better perspective and context. These two characteristics are what ultimately provide readers a change to understand reality.
For the past six months, we have followed as many developments as possible about the scary Zika virus, which health authorities have identified as the culprit of a growing number of cases of microcephaly in South and Central America. In the last few weeks, people allegedly infected with Zika have appeared elsewhere.
As we reported yesterday, Brazil is one of the countries with the largest number of unborn and born children with smaller than normal heads, which causes them to die early or to develop physical problems later in life. After our reporting yesterday, two important details have come to our attention which we found necessary to share with readers.
The first new detail is that, as suspected, Zika virus was ‘collected’ by Rockefeller-funded scientists some 70 years ago. Those scientists conducted laboratory experiments with the virus, including injecting animals with it. In 1947, disease hunters from the Rockefeller Foundation were in Uganda, studying yellow fever, when they found Zika.
On April 18, 1947, one of the Asian Rhesus monkeys took ill with a previously unknown virus, which the researchers dubbed Zika. In a lab in Entebbe, the Rockefeller scientists injected the new virus into mice, which then developed the feverish illness, thereby proving the virus they had discovered was the cause of the disease.
