Could We Be Facing a Super-Bug?
It now looks as if most of the mainstream media in the U.S. is downplaying the “e coli” outbreak.
A possible threat that the outbreak could spread throughout the United States is being slowly implied on top news media stations.
At least three passengers arriving in the states have been infected (this has been reported on FOX and other sources) at this time.
Other reports floating around Europe are detailing a far more frightening scenario.
Scientists in Europe are finding that the “e coli” outbreak is actually a super-toxic strain of e coli that is resistant to several antibiotic-resistant genes, not a good situation by any means.
A German news source reported that;
Health officials said Thursday three people in the United States are suspected to have fallen ill from e-coli bacteria after traveling to Germany where the mystery outbreak has killed 17.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was awaiting blood samples before any confirmation could be made, spokesman Tom Skinner told AFP. The suspected cases were not fatal.
A report from RSOE states the following event has taken place in Dublin Ireland regarding MRSA;
A completely new form of the MRSA superbug has been found in two Dublin hospitals. This new organism probably arose in animals and then jumped across to infect humans, according to the Irish researchers who discovered it. “It is totally different. It has never been seen before in any living organism,” said Prof David Coleman of Trinity College Dublin, who led an international team that identified the bacterium. The organism was so different that existing test kits could not recognise it as being an MRSA-type bacterium. “I have never seen anything as divergent, which means it has evolved away from humans,” Prof Coleman said yesterday. MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) describes organisms that have developed strong resistance to most antibiotics, something that makes MRSA infections very difficult to treat in humans. The superbug is endemic in some Irish hospitals, according to a number of studies, including a report last year, MRSA in Ireland. It put the cost of hospital-acquired infections at €23 million per year. Those who picked up a hospital-acquired MRSA infection were seven times more likely to die than patients who did not become infected. This new organism may add to the ongoing burden of hospital-acquired infections, given it is so very different to existing strains. “This is not just a new strain, this is absolutely and totally different from anything since MRSA was discovered in the 1960s,” Prof Coleman said.
The report might be worth noting, coupled with the fact that the newscasters keep saying that it can spread and they do not even know the source of the outbreak.
Another report actually mentions milk in the UK has been infected with MSRA, it goes on to read;
A new variant of meticilin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus found in cow’s milk is genetically different to existing MRSA strains from the United Kingdom (UK). The original scare had Europeans not drinking milk, but a released study mentions that cows may simply be hosts to this new strand and normal processes of milk, such as pasteurization, will kill any risk to humans.
Are you kidding me? WOW! It makes me wonder if that’s why the military industrial complex prepared mass graves for U.S. citizens as I documented on the Alex Jones Show on March 25, 2009.
The article goes on to say how pasteurization will prevent the spread of MSRA to humans (this makes me feel so safe — not).
Most of the local accounts seem to downplay the situation even though 17 deaths have been reported.
The following MSNBC article might be an attempt to downplay the event;

BERLIN — Germany has not yet identified the source of a deadly E.coli outbreak and still recommends not eating raw salad vegetables like cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes in northern Germany, a health ministry spokesman said on Friday. Racing to curb the spread of the killer food bug, the German government set up a national task force on Friday to hunt down the source of a highly toxic strain of E.coli that has killed 17 people and sounded alarms around the world.
Nearly 200 new cases of E. coli infection were reported in Germany in the first two days of June, the national disease control center reported Friday, but officials say there are signs the European bacterial outbreak that has killed 18 people could be slowing.
The Robert Koch Institute said that there are now 1,733 people in Germany — the epicenter of the outbreak — who have been sickened, including 520 suffering from a life-threatening complication that can cause kidney failure.
Although two American travelers, and possibly a third, who had recently been to Germany have been sickened by the toxic bacteria, they are unlikely to spark a spreading outbreak in the U.S., say food safety experts who urge both common sense and caution.
