Germany: the new surveillance system

 

Police collect coronavirus lists in several federal states.

 

“The police in several federal states have obtained data from people who have been infected with the novel corona virus. At least some of the lists also contain contact persons for those affected.”

“The distinction between those infected with the coronavirus and those not infected will shape society in the coming months”

“Last week, three local health departments were identified who had shared lists.

They therefore referred to the Public Health Service Act.
“As is now clear, a lot more data has flowed”!

“Data from Infected”

In Baden-Württemberg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the police received lists of people who had Covid-19. According to research by netzpolitik.org, sensitive health data was also transmitted in Lower Saxony and Bremen.

Privacy advocates think this is  illegal”.

And I mean…The total surveillance state has long been there. It was introduced on the day Merkel came to power. And as a spying specialist, she took it slow so that the stupid sleep-German citizen doesn’t notice it so quickly.

Even today many sleep – Germans would deny that we have long been living in a Merkel surveillance state.

What is still missing are empowerment laws that can elegantly remove unwanted opponents of the “United States of Europe” under the central rule of the US bankers.

Corona makes it possible …

England: Torture pigs and fight viruses!

 

Researchers from England used pigs to test vaccines against the novel corona virus. To do this, they take advantage of the similarity of the immune and respiratory systems of pigs and humans.

 

Scientists from England now want to use pigs to fight the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. In collaboration with researchers from Oxford University and Public Health England, a team of scientists from the Pirbright Institute will begin testing new vaccines for their ability to raise protective antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.

Among other things, the chimpanzee adenovirus vaccine vector that was used to produce vaccines against Ebola, the Middle East respiratory syndrome and the flu is tested.

 

The vaccine candidates developed will contain the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2. This is the protein against which protective antibodies are formed in infected people. To do this, the researchers measure the amount of antibodies produced after injecting vaccine candidates into pigs.

Pig and human respiratory system and immune system very similar (!!!)

They take advantage of the fact that pig and human immune systems have significant similarities. It can be assumed that a good response to a vaccine candidate in pigs is also promising in humans.

At the same time, the scientists will also test the safety of the new vaccines and check whether there are any adverse side effects in the pigs. If this attempt is successful, the next step could be to investigate the possible vaccine in humans.

 

The scientists from Pirbright are already using pigs for research on influenza viruses. Pigs have so far been used as large animal models because they have a very similar respiratory system to that of humans.

In addition, they inherently become infected with influenza viruses and form antibodies with properties similar to those of humans.

Pigs are therefore a suitable model for carrying out research for the novel corona virus.

 

The vaccine vector used cannot cause infection

“The vector vaccine developed at Oxford is used in this SARS-CoV-2 vaccine research because it can produce a strong immune response at a low dose,” explains Bryan Charleston, director of the Pirbright Institute.

“The vaccine vector is not replicable, which means that it cannot cause infection in an individual. This makes its application safer for people with underlying health conditions such as diabetes.

This approach has been applied to other vaccines and we hope that this research will enable the vaccine to advance to the next phase of human testing. ”

And I mean…We are very lucky again!
With a success rate of 5% (which generally affects all results from animal experiments on humans), we will control the healing process of the corona as slowly as that of the Spanish flu.

100 years ago, it took a year; today if we test on pigs it will probably take even longer.

The human being is the only animal that does not learn from its mistakes.

Peter Singer: on the causes of the coronavirus pandemic

 

 

It is worth watching this video.
Prof. Peter Singer * is one of the few animal ethicists and philosophers who can express a well-founded opinion on the subject.

Best  regards to all, Venus

* Peter Albert David Singer AC (* born 6 July 1946) is an Australian moral philosopher.

He is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and a Laureate Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. He specialises in applied ethics and approaches ethical issues from a secular, utilitarian perspective.

He is known in particular for his book Animal Liberation (1975), in which he argues in favour of veganism, and his essay “Famine, Affluence, and Morality”, in which he argues in favour of donating to help the global poor.

For most of his career, he was a preference utilitarian.

In 2004 Singer was recognised as the Australian Humanist of the Year by the Council of Australian Humanist Societies. In 2005, the Sydney Morning Herald placed him among Australia’s ten most influential public intellectuals.

Singer is a cofounder of Animals Australia and the founder of The Life You Can Save.

Petition – Tell the United Nations (UN) To BAN Wet Markets.

Dear Mark,

Today Animal Equality has launched an international campaign calling on the United Nations to demand an immediate global ban on all wet markets.

Please, sign our petition now and make sure the check box which says ‘Sign up for Animal Equality’s newsletter and receive updates and appeals via email’ is selected, so that you receive our updates on this campaign.

 

Animal Equality has investigated wet markets in China, India, and Vietnam. Our powerful investigation includes footage from a wet market in Wuhan, China, the city where many scientists speculate COVID-19 originated.

In wet markets, wild animals such as crocodiles, porcupines, deer, and bats are often sold alongside animals which are farmed for human consumption, including chickens and goats. It’s not uncommon to also find dogs and cats at these wet markets, which get their name in part from the floors that are soaked wet with blood.

At wet markets, live animals are slaughtered on the spot. There are no animal welfare or hygiene regulations in place. And, despite the documented dangers to public health and extreme cruelty to animals, wet markets remain legal.

Mark, please take a moment to watch our investigation to see what I’m talking about with your own eyes.

Wet markets are hell on earth for animals and they also pose a very real, imminent threat to the public health of the entire planet.

The time to act is now.

Petition link:

https://animalequality.org.uk/act/ban-wet-markets?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=markets&utm_content=020420

We are determined to make sure these blood-soaked markets across the world are shut down forever. The animals need your support to ensure the United Nations hears our message and takes action to protect animals and public health.

With gratitude,

Abigail Penny

Executive Director, Animal Equality UK

Chinese Markets Reopen — And They Still Sell Bats, Dogs And Cats.

Chinese Markets Reopen — And They Still Sell Bats, Dogs And Cats

Live animals are still for sale in Chinese food markets that reopened after the country recently declared victory over coronavirus.

 

Cages full of cats and dogs waiting for slaughter and the unsanitary preparation of animals is again reportedly a common sight in Chinese food markets, often called wet-markets, according to in-country correspondents with the Daily Mail.

 

China ordered that its wet-markets be shut down in January, after facts emerged suggesting that coronavirus was first transmitted to humans via bats and other live animals sold in the often filthy places of commerce, according to Business Insider. However, now that China says it’s beaten the virus, the markets seem to have resumed business as usual.

 

“The markets have gone back to operating in exactly the same way as they did before coronavirus,” said a Daily Mail correspondent who observed the markets re-opening Dongguan. “The only difference is that security guards try to stop anyone taking pictures which would never have happened before.”

 

Another correspondent in Guilin, a city in southwest China, photographed a sign advertising bats, snakes, spiders, lizards and scorpions for sale as remedies for common illnesses.

Images have also begun to circulate on social media of traditional Chinese foods considered odd by Western standards for sale in the newly reopened wet markets. CNBC host Jim Cramer tweeted out a video of live scorpions for sale.
