trH3N2 In United States Swine Scam
The virus has been isolated from pigs in the U.S. Midwest, says Dr. Nancy Cox, head of the CDC's influenza division, though she won't specify where.
There were three confirmed cases in that cluster, but it was likely larger. Two contacts of the first confirmed case were also ill, but were not tested. And the people in this cluster seemingly had no contact with pigs, suggesting they caught the virus from an unidentified person.
The virus was previously isolated from pigs in the U.S. Midwest, says Dr. Nancy Cox, head of the CDC's influenza division, though she won't specify where.
The above comments are from the first (in blue) and second (in red) versions of the report entitled “WHO gearing up response to puzzling new flu virus”, which is puzzling largely because of media myths fueled by the CDC narrative on “swine exposure”.
The first version of the above story printed the Nancy Cox statement after a description of the three confirmed cases from Iowa, which had no swine “exposure” and therefore appeared to be claiming that the novel trH3N2 in the Iowa cluster had been isolated from pigs in the US Midwest (but the CDC declined to give the location).
This statement was similar to the CIDRAP report, which followed the CDC’s November 22 “Have You Heard?”, which was on the same Iowa cluster and also stated that the novel trH3N2 had been reported in swine in multiple states, which was false, since there had only been one reported case of the novel trH3N2 in swine, which was the recently released sequence, A/swine/NY/A01104005/2011, from New York.
However, the second version of the above story changed tense from "has been" to “was previously” (bold added), changing the meaning to trH3N2 in swine that was similar to the initial human cases in 2009 and early 2010 (A/Kansas/13/2009, A/Iowa/16/2009, A/Minnesota/09/2010), which were obviously from the Midwest (Kansas, Iowa, and Minnesota).
Thus, the CDC was NOT claiming that the novel trH3N2 (with the H1N1pdm09 M gene) which was in all ten of the 2011 isolates, including the three from the Iowa cluster, were in Midwestern swine, which would support its “swine exposure” narrative, but instead was making ambiguous statements in its November 22, "Have You Heard?" and the above media report to create the illusion that the novel trH3N2 was widespread in United States Midwestern swine, which it is not.
