If it’s not Swine Flu it’s Ebola, and if it’s not Ebola it’s Zika, the latest manufactured epidemic that the government wants everyone to fear. Though Zika has mostly been a non-issue in the U.S., officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have made a proclamation that men who live in, or have traveled to, three Florida counties can no longer donate their sperm to sperm banks because they might be carrying the mosquito-borne illness.
Reports indicate that the ban on sperm donations is now in effect in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, despite the fact that Miami-Dade is the only one of the three where any evidence has ever emerged that Zika might be present. Yet, even with Miami-Dade, very little evidence exists that Zika has ever been an issue there, as reported infections came from individuals in areas of South Florida that were not necessarily in that county.
In accordance with recommendations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), all men who live in, or who have traveled to, any of the three Florida counties since June 15, 2016, are effectively barred from donating sperm. Though Zika primarily spreads through mosquito bites, officials say the disease may also spread through sexual contact, which is why they’re insistent that the ban remain in effect.
Officials also say that sperm donations are especially important to avoid from potential Zika victims because there’s no solid test for identifying its presence like there is for blood. While there’s only been one new reported case of Zika infection since December in Florida, officials want to be sure that there are no more transmissions moving into the warmer summer months when mosquitoes come back out in full force.
Of the 221 reported cases of Zika transmission in the U.S. in 2016, the vast majority of these were reported in South Florida, and primarily in the Miami area. Only six cases were reported from out of state, and these were in Texas. As for why Broward and Palm Beach counties are included in the ban, despite not having any reported cases of Zika last year, officials want to be safe rather than sorry.
“A lot of times, people may not realize when they crossed the county line,” Dr. Denise Jamieson, head of CDC’s Zika emergency efforts, told the media.
Concerning the most recent case of Zika reported in Florida on March 20, the media says the individual was not experiencing any Zika symptoms, but rather had gone in to be tested for the virus back in February. Reports claim that this individual likely contracted the virus after “multiple exposures” to areas in Florida where mosquitoes are said to be spreading it.
In addition to this single case, there are some 28 other travel-related Zika infections that have been reported in 2017, which include 13 pregnant women and at least two cases in which the source of infection is undetermined. Health officials claim that pregnant women have the highest risk of complications from Zika, insisting that the virus could cause microcephaly or other neurological disorders.
As has been pointed out by some members of the alternative media, all the hubbub over Zika seems to be a prelude to an eventual Zika vaccine. Health officials seem to be hyping the disease, just like they did with Swine Flu and Ebola, as a way to scare the public into rolling up their sleeves and taking the jab, if and when it’s released, at some point in the near future. Since Americans were told that children’s heads would shrink from all the Zika going around, which hasn’t happened yet, taking these Zika warnings with a grain of salt seems like the smart thing to do.
