And by going to the "last" and scrolling backwards, you will find some other diseases mentioned as well.

Additionally,

Let me call this to your attention, and FYI, I will add all "strange disease related" links to this post in the future. I had started adding them to my old SARS post, but suspect that a separate post for all oddball diseases will be better seen.

As always, feel free to add whatever you like.

If it weren't for the striking coincidence that all those who've contracted monkeypox recently purchased prairie dogs, there may be something to that.

Why anyone would conceive of West Nile as a potential bioattack (especially with its well-studied & well-known transmission vectors) is beyond me..

It's actually that people find it more comforting that disease outbreaks be bioterror instead of nature acting more or less randomly, believe it or not.

The idea that we're going to see deadly diseases randomly spring up and accidentally get transported to this country is more frightening than the idea that someone would deliberately engineer and deliver a disease; the former seems more "controllable" and you can solve the problem and make everything right by just finding or punishing the bad guys.

Why anyone would conceive of West Nile as a potential bioattack

One reason may be the rather poor national reporting. It seems to me that the media represented West Nile to be something that attacked the elderly or those with compromised immune systems. In Western Michigan last summer there were several cases of West Nile in healthy adults. The victims, as of last report, were left with polio like disabilities and long rehab stints.

I'm still trying to figure out how bad WNV might get. Last summer I figured I was young and did not need to use repellent. I think I will be more diligent about avoiding mosquito bites this summer. Not only because I'm a year older, but I've started to read some really bad personal accounts on WNV.

NICE TRY at giving this conspiracy theory a boost counselor ...

In the summer and fall of 1999, the first cases ever of WN virus infection occurred in the northeastern United States. The original eight diagnosed cases, all previously healthy adults between the ages of 58 and 85, were found to be within a four-mile area of Queens, New York.
From: http://www.healthyarkansas.com/news/Hometown/2001/news_0101_fc.html


Local Health Watch : West Nile Virus

In the late summer of 1999, New York City health officials began tracking an outbreak of what appeared to be St. Louis encephalitis, a sometimes fatal viral disease.A few weeks later, several cases of the same illness were reported in the northern suburbs.

At the same time, reports of dead birds began filtering in to public health authorities. When more than 50 crows died in and around the Bronx Zoo, a pathologist there grew suspicious.

It turned out that the disease which killed the crows -- and which was transmitted to people by mosquitos -- was not common encephalitis. At first, it was identified as a "West Nile- like" virus. Eventually, scientists confirmed that it was indeed the West Nile virus, a form of encephalitis never before seen in the Western Hemisphere.

The Journal News has been reporting on the progress of the disease, and on efforts to control mosquitoes, since the first cases became known. A selection of those stories, recording the progress made in identifying the disease and some of the steps taken to combat it,is available on this page.

I'm watching a couple and their daughter who contracted monkeypox from a prairie dog--they're on MSNBC right now. They live in Dorchester, Wisconsin, where my sister-in-law and brother-in-law used to live.

Oh, and in addition to monkeypox, the kid just took a tumble out of her lawn chair. On live TV.

Good work.

The shark attacks of a few summers ago turned out to be media hype, the numbers were in line with the average. Is this true with these diseases? Are we just better at identifying them or are there really more? If there really are more it seems to me something else besides randomness is going on. What is it? Terrorism, EOTW or just bad luck? This is just getting plain weird.

Is the term "the quickening" a biblical term?

From what I can tell they have known about the monkeypox since April 18th and we are just now hearing about it. All the people you're seeing on TV are already recovered from it.

Thanks for your work on this thread.

I think there are a number of diseases that we've not had here in this hemisphere, that we're going to be seeing more and more of...monkeypox is only an example. The poster above who pointed out that we want someone to blame, instead of realizing that stuff happens because this IS a small world, is right in my opinion.

Strange Rash Hits Harwinton School: Officials Can't Identify Source

Rash Outbreak Still A Mystery

Infectious diseases will most likely emerge or reemerge with a vengeance as a direct correlation to antibiotics, vaccines and medicine. Contributing to the problem, IMHO, include developing countries don't have medical resources, and developed countries abuse them. I am particularly watching: Multi-drug resistant strains of TB. Rise of TB incident in the USA & direct relationship to illegal immigration. Staphylococcus aureus outbreaks in foodservice. Staphylococcus aureus drug resistant strains of furunculosis [boils] and rashes.

For those who are concerned about "wild diseases":

I am a maintenance engineer in a hospital laundry where we process about 40,000 pounds of soiled linen daily. In addition, my brother (who lives in the suite downstairs) is a household appliance technician for a major international retailer.

He is exposed daily to people who don't even realize they might be sick, or know it but don't think they're sick enough to see their "Quack" yet.

I just spent over 5 hours cleaning the sorting area (we call it the "poo zone") wearing nothing more than my coveralls, an N95 mask, and examination gloves.

I am only minimally concerned about what I had to deal with today, as is he.

Incidentally, there are 2 known SARS cases in the hospital across the street, and 3 others in our service area.

IF I or my brother become ill in the next 10 days, I will definitely let you know.

Chicken Littles, indeed.

I was flipping around channels when Keith Olbermann said they'd be interviewing people with monkeypox from Dorchester WI, so I watched the story (I said, "DORCHESTER? I know where that is"), wondering if my hubby's relatives knew them--and then I realized of course they knew them. Dorchester is not that big. In fact, it's really tiny. Towards the end of the interview (you could hear the kid playing during the interview), I heard this thump, then the kid screaming & wailing. They pulled out to a wide shot & there was the resin lawn chair tipped over into the grass, the kid howling, mom leaping up to comfort the kid....and Olbermann gave periodic reports about the condition of the kid for the next half hour. I mean it's bad enough the kid's got monkeypox, but to total out on a lawn chair on cable news TV....and I can tell you that being on cable tv was the biggest thing to hit Dorchester since...well, EVER.
