Alex Jones is sounding the alarm about some mystery illness that’s killing healthy people.
Jones’ own family members have been stricken:
- About 2½ months ago, Jones’ cousin, Peter Amoth (spelling?), got sick one day and died the next day.
- Then, Peter’s father (Jones’ paternal uncle), William Hannon, also fell ill and has been hospitalized for over a week, where he’s sedated and put on oxygen to help him breathe. Hannon’s been tested, but “it’s not the flu, it’s not bacteria.” Now they’re saying it’s “some weird microplasm” and that Hannon’s lungs look like he’s a 5-pack-a-day smoker although he’s never been a smoker.
- Jones’ children have also been sick for weeks with a persistent fever and coughs. He had swabs done on the kids.
- Jones’ father has been sick for a month.
- Jones’ wife has been sick for three weeks.
But the national media aren’t covering this, although local media are beginning to report it. Jones points out how odd that is, because the media would publicize if 1 or 2 people in China die from an outbreak of swine or bird flu.
From KMBZ (via Infowars), Dec. 1, 2013:
Dozens of children and adults who are in Las Vegas for the National Youth Football Championships have been hospitalized after coming down with a mystery illness.
The mystery disease shows flu-like symptoms, including vomiting. ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser says “norovirus” may be the cause.
“Norovirus is the largest cause of outbreaks of gastroenteritis stomach flu in the United States– 20 million cases a year,” Dr. Besser said. “This is the peak season.”
“It’s one of the nastiest germs around, ’cause it spreads from person to person through contact. It spreads through food, and also spreads from contaminated surfaces, so it’s one of the most contagious ones we see,”Besser said.
From KHOU (via Infowars), Dec. 18, 2013:
Officials with the Montgomery County Health Department [in Texas] are on a mission to find out more about a mystery flu-like illness.
So far, half of the people who have come down with it have died.
According to the health department, all of the patients have had flu-like and/or pneumonia like symptoms. However, all of them have tested negative for the flu.
There have been eight confirmed patients ranging in age from 41 to 68. Four of those patients have died.
Sources told KHOU that two of the surviving patients are being treated at Conroe Regional Medical Center and are “very sick”. Those sources said doctors are being advised to use extra precaution to prevent this from spreading.
It’s unclear if any of the patients had pre-existing conditions.
The Montgomery County Health Department is waiting on more conclusive test results. Officials are hoping they will have more answers in the days to come.
