Zika: Update from Brazil: Towering Non-Evidence

zika virus testingBy Jon Rappoport

I can now provide the latest update on what researchers in Brazil are discovering, as they dig into their original findings about the Zika virus and cases of microcephaly (babies born with small heads and brain impairment).

A correspondent has offered a translation of an article that appeared in one of the major Sao Paulo newspapers, O Estado de São Paulo, on February 2nd, “País tem 404 casos confirmados de microcefalia”:

It is obvious that no significant connection between microcephaly and the Zika virus has been found. It’s not even close. So far, therefore, there is absolutely no reason to trumpet an epidemic of Zika. Doing so is quite insane, by any reasonable standard.


Here are the principal facts in the article (after which I’ll comment):

* As of January 30, 2015, 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly were reported in Brazil.

* Of those 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly, covering the entire country of Brazil, 3,670 are being investigated.

* Of those 3,670, 404 cases have been confirmed as microcephaly or “other alterations in the central nervous system” of babies.

* Of those 404 cases, 17 “had a relationship with zika virus.”

* 98% of the 404 microcephaly cases come from the Northeast area of Brazil, and in that area, Pernambuco has the highest number of cases: 56.


Now, let’s take each one of these reported facts and examine it.

First: 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly in Brazil. “Suspected” is the operative word. This number means nothing, because it says nothing about confirmation. It’s just a raw figure.

3,670 of these cases are being researched.

Of these 3,670, 404 have been confirmed as microcephaly or other alterations in the central nervous system of the babies. The key word here is “or.” The researchers don’t know how many of the 404 babies have microcephaly. At the very most, it would be 404. 404 cases of microcephaly in the whole country of Brazil, so far. That is not an epidemic. For example, every year in the US, there are 25,000 cases of microcephaly. And the literature is very clear about causes: any insult to the fetal brain during pregnancy can result in microcephaly. Severe malnutrition, falling down stairs, a blow to the stomach, a toxic street drug or medical drug or vaccine or pesticide, and so on.

Of these 404 cases of (possible) microcephaly in Brazil, 17 babies have been found who “have a relationship with the Zika virus.” It’s hard to be more vague. But for the sake of argument, let’s say that in each of the 17, with a correct test done properly, the Zika virus was isolated. This finding does not even remotely approach proof that Zika is causing microcephaly. It’s miles away from proof. Any honest researcher will tell you that. If Zika were the cause, researchers should have been able to find it in the overwhelming majority of the 404 babies. 17 out of 404 is, in fact, major evidence that Zika is not the cause.

98% of the 404 (possible) microcephaly cases come from the Northeast region of Brazil. Before jumping to any conclusions, realize that standards on reporting such cases differ from region to region. Up until now, there was no national focus on microcephaly. So there may be other cases from other regions. As for the 56 cases in Pernambuco, understand that the population of this area is 9.27 million people. It is significant to note that commercial agriculture is widespread in Pernambuco, and agriculture means toxic pesticides—an important causal factor in microcephaly, as I’ve detailed in other articles.

To sum up, researchers so far have found 404 cases of microcephaly in Brazil, and who knows how many of those are actually some other kind of nervous-system impairment. And of those 404 babies, they have found, at best, 17 cases where the Zika virus was present.

You can’t handle the truth about vaccines (Ad)

And this is the epidemic that is shaking the world.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is spearheading the baseless propaganda and the hysteria. At the very least, hundreds of employees from WHO should be immediately fired from their jobs, if not jailed.

    Ahhh, but think of the opportunities to produce and to enforce vaccines upon us fearful unwashed masses!

    Population control. And an easy exit for a very nervous Rio.

    Zika was isolated in Uganda in 1947. And suddenly, last April, it appeared in Brazil. How did it get there? “By way of French Polonesia.” That’s not epidemiology. Epidemiology is tracking the carriers of the disease, case by case, back to its source. For example, the index case of AIDS who carried the virus all over the world was an airline steward named Gaetan Dugas with sexual contacts wherever he landed. That is epidemiology. “Suddenly appeared in Brazil by way of French Polonesia during the World Cup” is pure speculation. It’s guessing. So, please tell me about all the cases of microcephaly that zika virus (60-80% of cases have no symptoms whatsoever) has been causing in Uganda for all these years? Any? No? This is just weird.

      Chillax, there is no such thing as Zika or Ebola.

    TY for folks like you John – KUDOS :-)
    The MSM is just blabbering whatever narrative they are given.
    turn off the boob tube and stop reading the agenda driven papers and rags.
    Maddow and the fox girlies are for show and nothing more – a mouthpiece for the all seeing eye crowd.

    How the heck are we supposed to sell $2billion of “anti Zika Vaccine” if you keep on telling people the truth.
    We sold billions of dollars of Sunscreen with the Skin Cancer BS. We made tens of Billions from the Ozone Hole nonsense and it is people like you who are “anti science” and stop us from making real nice bonuses.
    You probably don’t believe in AGW, are against Aspartame, and believe that Autism is linked to vaccines.

    Now, Brazilian government can justify to its people why the Olympics will be a flop, because a mosquito prevented people from all over the world to come to Rio…Makes sense.
