These links were culled from other collections, and have been truncated to avoid SARS overload... all my SARS links can be found here:

-SARS ( atypical pneumonia )- a partial archive --

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

Additionally,

-West Nile Virus- some basic information----

If you are willing to follow the links within links, there is quite a bit of disease information in these:

-The Poor-Boy Nuke-- Bioterrorism***

Nuclear, Biological, & Chemical Warfare- Survival Skills, Pt. II

As always, I welcome others to contribute their links and data.

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..

Oh, c'mon. The easiest way to not catch monkeypox in the US is not to consort with prairie dogs. Sheesh.

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.

New diseases are always breaking out. Since the beginning of time. That is why we have the word "outbreak" in our vocabulary.... Did we think we could travel the globe freely and not find a new bug?

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.

With your serious first responder aid kit, FReepers must add "N" and "P" 95 or 100 respirators and medical masks AND nitril gloves (much more durable than latex). Include some serious trash bags with "100 mph" tape for sealing and keep a few gallons of bleach around.

"Suit up" and promptly dispose of dead birds, mammals, and people, if it gets to that.

If these poxes "jump" (with or without bioweapons lab/terrorists help) to squirrels, cats, and dogs, we'll get some taget practice.

If anyone is naive enough to think these new diseases are by chance, think of the wierd deaths of 30 some world-class bio-scientists who died the last couple of years.

How can China have a SARS vaccine so soon, IF SARS was not a long researched case study?
