what's a war board without a conflict?


Biological Warfare Thread Strelok 12/05/2020 (Sat) 23:51:38 No.10356
A thread dedicated to biological warfare, whether it's discussion of how the settlers intentionally handed smallpox-ridden blankets to shitty Natives, Poland mixing rabies-infected saliva on their arrows, Emperor Barbarossa poisoning the well water, Napolean flooding Italy to spread Malaria, the CSA secretly selling Yellow Fever-ridden clothes to the Union, the USSR developing Marburg-sama, or Mongols chucking diseased animal carcasses over the ramparts of cities and castles under siege. A thread dedicated to all things biological and /k/.
Here comes the part where he tells us he was just pretending to be retarded.
>we banned /fascist/ just to have /trannypol/ invade >>15250 Gen Z will be the most degenerate one yet, they've been locked down for over a year and have completely forgotten how to socialize while getting addicted to their own self-satisfaction. The product of a post-modern society who is helpless to break out of its own hyper-individualized state. It's why this tard is desperate for a "community," since he wants someone to empathize with them on an individual level as the lack of physical interaction means his brain hasn't had any hormonal stimulation for a year. He wants to pick arguments just to feel alive, but in the end he's just sitting in his empty room while the few people that know of his existence drift ever further away. He doesn't even know how to use replies.

Wait, did that guy seriously claim that libertarian thought has its origins in Marxism, rather than being an ideological evolution dating back two hundred years before Marx in the philosophical Enlightenment? Has this nigger never lifted a history book?

Fauci 'not convinced' COVID-19 developed naturally https://archive.md/8ivC0 >"There’s a lot of cloudiness around the origins of COVID-19 still, so I wanted to ask, are you still confident that it developed naturally?" PolitiFact’s Katie Sanders asked the nation’s top infectious disease expert in an event, United Facts of America: A Festival of Fact-Checking event. "No actually," Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) said, around 12 minutes into footage of the event, which was held earlier this month but overlooked by most media outlets. "I am not convinced about that, I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened. Certainly, the people who investigated it say it likely was the emergence from an animal reservoir that then infected individuals, but it could have been something else, and we need to find that out. So, you know, that’s the reason why I said I’m perfectly in favor of any investigation that looks into the origin of the virus," he continued. >"Will you in front of this group categorically say that the COVID-19 virus could not have occurred by serial passage in a laboratory?" Sen. Rand Paul had asked Fauci during a Senate hearing last Tuesday. Fauci did not explicitly rule out such a possibility: "I do not have any accounting of what the Chinese may have done, and I'm fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China," he said. "However, I will repeat again, the NIH and NIAID categorically has not funded gain of function research to be conducted in the Wuhan Institute of Virology." Paul had claimed that funding through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) had been funneled to controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology -- the Chinese lab that is believed to have played a role in the initial outbreak of COVID-19. Paul specifically zeroed in on gain of function research -- which works on making pathogens deadlier or more easily transmissible. He alleged that a U.S. virologist had been working with the Chinese institute on such research and said it was funded by the NIH. >Fauci said at the fact-checking event that Paul had been "conflating… in a way that’s almost irresponsible" collaborative research into Sars-Cov-1, which emerged in China in the early 2000s, with Chinese scientists. Trump administration officials and Republicans on the Hill have long argued there is a high chance COVID-19 was the result of a lab leak. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the lab leak theory "extremely unlikely" last week, but even Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO chief, has said the research team’s assessment on whether the virus entered the human population following a laboratory incident was not "extensive enough" and requires further investigation. The White House has not yet said whether it’s seen evidence to disprove the lab leak theory, but has joined calls for an independent investigation. >White House press secretary Jen Psaki said this week the Biden administration has conveyed both publicly and privately that the Chinese government was "not transparent from the beginning." Fauci’s more recent remarks show an evolution in the doctor’s beliefs on coronavirus’ origins over the past year. In May 2020, Fauci largely dismissed the lab leak theory. "If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated," he told National Geographic at the time. "Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species," he said. He told the magazine at the time that based on the scientific evidence, he does not entertain the lab leak theory.

>>15880 Why the fuck would anyone here care what that kike goblin has to say. He's far worse than the traditional politician in the respect of 'if his mouth is moving, he's lying'. He's nearly as bad as Bill Gates is in the evil collusion behind this entire hoax. >"All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes." Blood is at their feets. The ZOGbots have their share in this too, as do the diversity-tier glowniggers & other tools shilling this lie everywhere, such as these posts ITT.

SARS-CoV-2 Spike Impairs DNA Damage Repair and Inhibits V(D)J Recombination In Vitro https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8538446/ Abstract: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has led to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, severely affecting public health and the global economy. Adaptive immunity plays a crucial role in fighting against SARS-CoV-2 infection and directly influences the clinical outcomes of patients. Clinical studies have indicated that patients with severe COVID-19 exhibit delayed and weak adaptive immune responses; however, the mechanism by which SARS-CoV-2 impedes adaptive immunity remains unclear. Here, by using an in vitro cell line, we report that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein significantly inhibits DNA damage repair, which is required for effective V(D)J recombination in adaptive immunity. Mechanistically, we found that the spike protein localizes in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding key DNA repair protein BRCA1 and 53BP1 recruitment to the damage site. Our findings reveal a potential molecular mechanism by which the spike protein might impede adaptive immunity and underscore the potential side effects of full-length spike-based vaccines.
>>20226 So the main things strelo/k/ was worried about Spring 2020 and the biggest reason people avoid the vaccine turns out to actually be true? Who would've thunk it!? To be fair most viruses do this. This is why 7% of the human genome is viral RNA spliced into our DNA since that's a side-effect of the natural adaptive immune response. That being said, this is why I don't like protein-based vaccines and insist on the older, more expensive "inactive virus" vaccines of the last 80 or so years (or stuff like using cowpox inoculation to prevent smallpox).
>>20227 It gets better: some studies find that people with weak immune systems (including the elderly) react weakly to the vaccines, so it's not even guaranteed that they will get immune to the actual virus. Meanwhile, if you are reasonably fit and healthy then you might as well just get infected with the actual virus and acquire immunity that way. But there is more! https://medicalxpress.com/news/2021-11-uncovers-gene-death-covid-.html https://archive.md/9O5ay Study uncovers gene that doubles risk of death from COVID-19 >Radcliffe Department of Medicine researchers have identified the gene responsible for doubling the risk of respiratory failure from COVID-19. Sixty percent of people with South Asian ancestry carry the high-risk genetic signal, partly explaining the excess deaths seen in some UK communities, and the impact of COVID-19 in the Indian subcontinent. Previous work has already identified a stretch of DNA on chromosome 3 which doubled the risk of adults under 65 of dying from COVID. However, scientists did not know how this genetic signal worked to increase the risk, nor the exact genetic change that was responsible.
>>20230 So it's a natural remedy for the UK's poo infestation? No wonder that one poo-in-chief is so assblasted about a handful of COVID cases.
>>20232 I think it works on gypsies too. But more importantly, one could use this piece of information to foster some strong anti-CCP sentiment among the Indians, because it might not even that much of a stretch to claim that Corona-chan was a bioweapon engineered against Pooland's population.

All unvaccinated workers must begin wearing masks by Dec. 5 and provide a negative Covid test on a weekly basis after the January deadline, according to the requirements. Companies are not required to pay for or provide the tests unless they are otherwise required to by state or local laws or in labor union contracts. Anyone who tests positive is prohibited from going into work. >Companies also have until Dec. 5 to offer paid time for employees to get vaccinated and paid sick leave for them to recover from any side effects. >OSHA, which polices workplace safety for the Labor Department, will provide sample implementation plans and fact sheets among other materials to help companies adopt the new rules. >OSHA will also conduct on-site workplace inspections to make sure companies comply with the rules, a senior administration official said. Penalties for noncompliance can range from $13,653 per serious violation to $136,532 if a company willfully violates the rules.

Will we see the slogan Muh nody, muh choice! hijacked by those who don't want to get vaccinated?
>>20249 It has already happened. Women's responses were "your choice doesn't matter when the public good is at stake." The irony is almost palpable.
People testing negative for Covid-19 despite exposure may have ‘immune memory’ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/10/people-exposed-to-covid-yet-not-falling-ill-may-have-immune-memory-finds-study https://archive.md/c8c7G >Study says some individuals clear virus rapidly due to a strong immune response from existing T-cells, meaning tests record negative result >We all know that person who, despite their entire household catching Covid-19, has never tested positive for the disease. Now scientists have found an explanation, showing that a proportion of people experience “abortive infection” in which the virus enters the body but is cleared by the immune system’s T-cells at the earliest stage meaning that PCR and antibody tests record a negative result. About 15% of healthcare workers who were tracked during the first wave of the pandemic in London, England, appeared to fit this scenario. The discovery could pave the way for a new generation of vaccines targeting the T-cell response, which could produce much longer lasting immunity, scientists said. >Leo Swadling, an immunologist at University College London and lead author of the paper, said: “Everyone has anecdotal evidence of people being exposed but not succumbing to infection. What we didn’t know is whether these individuals really did manage to completely avoid the virus or whether they naturally cleared the virus before it was detectable by routine tests.” The latest study intensively monitored healthcare workers for signs of infection and immune responses during the first wave of the pandemic. Despite a high risk of exposure 58 participants did not test positive for Covid-19 at any point. However, blood samples taken from these people showed they had an increase in T-cells that reacted against Covid-19, compared with samples taken before the pandemic took hold and compared with people who had not been exposed to the virus at all. They also had increases in another blood marker of viral infection. >The work suggests that a subset of people already had memory T-cells from previous infections from other seasonal coronaviruses causing common colds, which protected them from Covid-19. These immune cells “sniff out” proteins in the replication machinery – a region of Covid-19 shared with seasonal coronaviruses – and in some people this response was quick and potent enough for the infection to be cleared at the earliest stage. “These pre-existing T-cells are poised ready to recognise SARS-CoV-2,” said Swadling. The study adds to the known spectrum of possibilities after exposure to Covid-19, ranging from escaping infection entirely to severe disease. Alexander Edwards, associate professor in biomedical technology at the University of Reading, said: “This study identifies [a new] intermediate outcome – enough virus exposure to activate part of your immune system but not enough to experience symptoms, detect significant levels of virus or mount an antibody response.” >The finding is particularly significant because the T-cell arm of the immune response tends to confer longer lasting immunity, typically of years rather than months, compared with antibodies. Nearly all existing Covid-19 vaccines focus on priming antibodies against the vital spike protein that helps SARS-CoV-2 enter cells. These neutralising antibodies give excellent protection against severe illness. However, the immunity wanes over time and a potential weakness of spike-based vaccines is that this region of the virus is known to mutate. By contrast, the T-cell response does not tend to fade as quickly and the internal replication machinery that it targets is highly conserved across coronaviruses, meaning a vaccine that also targeted this region would probably protect against new strains – and possibly even against entirely new pathogens. “Insights from this study could be critical in design of a different type of vaccine,” said Andrew Freedman, reader in infectious diseases at Cardiff University School of Medicine. “A vaccine that primes T-cell immunity against different viral protein targets that are shared between many different coronaviruses would complement our spike vaccines that induce neutralising antibodies. Because these are components within the virus, antibodies are less effective – instead, T-cells come into play.” I've watched both seasons of Hataraku Saibou, so I understand everything now. It sounds like Corona-chan is only a threat because modern medicine lets the weak breed freely since the 19th century, and so we have way too many people who otherwise would have died during their childhood from the common cold.
>>20379 If you read Hataraku BLACK'd you'd know that the main concern is the cytokine storm when your immune system freaks the fuck out- the sign of a functioning immune system. I love how their response is to use the very thing that was killing people with Corona as if it were some new and novel concept. This method produces better results as a vaccine, but has a much higher risk of having a deadly "allergic reaction" to the vaccine which is why they didn't do it the first time around. Democrats have fully propelled us into cyberpunk medicine territory so be careful since everything will work but you will be a guinea pig 10x worse than the first round of vaccines.

>>11388 A 1929 investigation in Jiangxi showed correlation between low fertility in males and use of crude cottonseed oil for cooking. The compound causing the contraceptive effect was determined to be gossypol.[citation needed] In the 1970s, the Chinese government began researching the use of gossypol as a contraceptive. Their studies involved over 10,000 subjects, and continued for over a decade. They concluded gossypol provided reliable contraception, could be taken orally as a tablet, and did not upset men's balance of hormones. However, gossypol also had serious flaws. The studies also discovered an abnormally high rate of hypokalemia among subjects.[6] Hypokalemia (low blood potassium levels) causes symptoms of fatigue, muscle weakness, and at its most extreme, paralysis. In addition, about 7% of subjects[citation needed] reported effects on their digestive systems, and about 12%[citation needed] had increased fatigue. Most subjects recovered after stopping treatment and taking potassium supplements. The same study showed taking potassium supplements during gossypol treatment did not prevent hypokalemia in primates.[6] The potassium deficiency may also be a result of the Chinese diet or genetic predisposition.[6] In the mid-1990s, the Brazilian pharmaceutical company Hebron announced plans to market a low-dose gossypol pill called Nofertil, but the pill never came to market. Its release was indefinitely postponed due to unacceptably high rates of permanent infertility.[citation needed] 5% to 25% of the men remained azoospermic up to a year after stopping treatment.[6] Researchers have suggested gossypol might make a good noninvasive alternative to surgical vasectomy.[7] In 1998, the World Health Organization's Research Group on Methods for the Regulation of Male Fertility recommended[citation needed] the research should be abandoned. In addition to the other side effects, the WHO researchers were concerned about gossypol's toxicity: the LD50 in primates is less than 10 times the contraceptive dose,[6] creating a small therapeutic window. This report effectively ended further studies of gossypol as a temporary contraceptive, but research into using it as an alternative to vasectomy continues in Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, the Dominican Republic, and Nigeria. Targeting the males might not be as effective, but it still lowers their reproductive rates, and male infertility is not as suspicious, especially if infidelity is widespread among the population in question. And you can administer this orally.

The compound causing the contraceptive effect was determined to be gossypol.[citation needed ]>In the 1970s, the Chinese government began researching the use of gossypol as a contraceptive.
