Rosemary (who seems to have calmed down recently - she either posts the text of lunatic monkey virus sites (which most of JABS seem to have the good sense to ignore) or she simply reposts general medical stories from assorted news outlets) has posted a story from the Independent about Scarlet Fever.
As I see it, that's a perfectly reasonable thing to post on a health terror site.
However… As JABS is full of fucking nutters, they can't all let it lie, can they? Oh No.
Seonaid tries (rather half heartedly, if you ask me) to link this to vaccines:
Just as well they didn't vaccinate for this - or they would be blaming fall in vaccine uptake for it's return!Now, from what I see, the original story was a simple news piece. "This has happened". No agenda, nothing. Certainly no mention of vaccines.
However, as we know (JABSLoonies passim.), Seonaid is a fucking cretin, so we'll perhaps pass this off as another conspiracy theory.
OH NOES!!! Minority View - the "reasonable face of JABS" - decides to have a go too:
How much you want to be[t] that a vaccine is coming? Generally, if there is a news story about an infectious disease, it doesn't really mean the cases are rising. What it means is that a vaccine is on the way and doctors have been nudged to start diagnosing whatever it is.
See the series of events on whooping cough in adults in the U.S.
First there is publicity, directed at doctors, telling them that this illness is either undiagnosed or increasing in teens and adults.
Second the doctors start spotting it, since they have been told to pay attention
Third the vaccine gets released to general acclaim and good sales
They're never fucking happy are they, unless people are getting ill, or actually dying? A simple story about the resurgence of a disease, and they start spreading F.U.D. I reckon MV or John Stone could spin a vaccine story out of the fact that Aston Villa are in the top four of the Premier League.
