Old and New Diseases Attack Everywhere, Part 2

 Continuing our report from the last blog, “New and Old Diseases Trotting Around the Globe At Will.”  Many of these diseases mutate into more dangerous forms.  Examples are drug-resistant Staphylococcus––which could be starting an epidemic in Europe––encephalitis, and very stubborn forms of cholera.
 Extinction Protocol warned two days ago:  “A relatively new type of drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus could represent the world’s next bacterial epidemic.”  The superbug, first seen in a baby in a pig farmers family in the Netherlands 11 years ago, is labeled methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strain 398, or MRSA ST398.

 Health officials now see more dangerous infections in both the Netherlands and Denmark, and some of the victims have no connection with pigs.  Lance B. Price, Director of the Center for Macrobiotics and Human Health at The Translational Genomics Research Institute in Flagstaff, Arizona, states:  “The rate of human [ST398] infections is going up . . . We are just looking at the beginning of an epidemic.”

 And the problem could well be coming to the United States.  Price says that MRSA ST398 was found this year in at least half of the pigs and farmers tested in Iowa.  Further, Price laments that this bug is increasingly resistant to known antibiotics.  He says:  “In fact, even now, methicillin-resistant Staph aureus kills more people in the U.S. than HIV.”
 Encephalitis attacks are on the rise as well.  A viral encephalitis outbreak in India has killed more than 400 people, mostly children.  So far over two thousands people are in hospitals in the regions of Gorakhpur and Uttar Pradesh.

 Again, this reinforced disease has been killing children in India since 1978.  With some 6,000 children now dead, health officials are stress that areas endangered by monsoon floods, lack of sanitation, contaminated water and subsequent mosquitoes must have better government health protection.

 Various news agencies now blend severe outbreaks of ordinary flu with that of swine flu.  Kim Lyell of ABC News published the sad news yesterday that “Flu Cases Soar  Across Australia,” in search information on Swine Flu, reports:  “Doctors have reported a spike in influenza cases across Australia, with 25,000 confirmed cases  . . . It is the highest number this decade apart from the swine flu epidemic two years ago.”

 As we said yesterday, believers must lean more on Bible prophecies which promise that Jesus bore our sickness and diseases so that we can be healed (Matthew 8: 17, 10: 1, etc.).  God includes these promises in His Holy Word!
