In 2001 Australian researchers and Dr Mark Buller (St Louis, USA) made a strain of smallpox in mice, called mousepox that has a case fatality rat of 100%, and the smallpox vaccine does not work against it. That means it kills everything. Mousepox is so potent that the smallpox vaccine does not work against it. I bet this nonsense is being kept in a lab somewhere. The argument is we need to study this so that we have a fix in case it is released as a bioweapon, but what if it accidentally escapes the lab like SARS-CoV2 did from the Wuhan Virology Laboratory.
“Mark Buller, PhD, a virologist at St. Louis University, says his group has built on the work of Australian researchers, who reported in 2001 that they had accidentally engineered a mousepox virus that was lethal to vaccinated mice. 6 Nov 2003″ (sic)
Read about mousepox here:
“Scientists in St. Louis have created a genetically altered strain of mousepox virus — a close relative of the smallpox virus — that is so potent it kills mice vaccinated against the mouse disease, rekindling concerns that some avenues of biotechnology research may be generating lethal knowledge useful to bioterrorists.” (sic)
Dr Mark Buller also worked on other poxviruses including monkeypox. He was killed when a car hit him while he was on his bicycle in 2017.
“Mark Buller, Ph.D., one of the nation’s foremost poxvirus researchers and a world-class scientist, was killed Friday, Feb. 24 when he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle. He was 67.” There is more about him in this blog:
This also raises some questions about why the WHO is recommending not to use the smallpox vaccine against monkey pox.
