NOT SATIRE: Cats and Dogs May Need Covid Vaccines to Curb Spread, SCIENTISTS (Your Priestly Masters) Say

SCIENTISTS say the darndest thing

Cats and dogs may also need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to help stunt the spread of the infectious disease — amid a threat of the “continued evolution of the virus in animals,” scientists have warned.

Researchers at the University of East Anglia and the Earlham Institute, both in the UK, and the University of Minnesota warned about the “significant long-term risk to public health” from such transmission in an editorial for Virulence.

“It is not unthinkable that vaccination of some domesticated animal species might … be necessary to curb the spread of the infection,” the experts wrote in the peer-reviewed medical journal, the UK’s Independent reported.

While there are no known cases in which a human contracted COVID-19 from a furry family member, Cock van Oosterhout, a professor of evolutionary genetics at UEA in Norwich, said we should prepare “for any eventuality.”

“It makes sense to develop vaccines for pets, for domestic animals, just as a precaution to reduce this risk,” he said. “What we need to be as a human society, we really need to be prepared for any eventuality when it comes to COVID.”

Last year, Denmark was forced [“forced”] to cull millions of mink after hundreds of coronavirus cases in the country were linked to the farmed critters.

If this were to happen with cats and dogs, it would pose “a significant long-term risk to public health,” the editorial warned.

“Continued virus evolution in reservoir animal hosts, followed by spillback events into susceptible human hosts, poses a significant long-term risk to public health,” the group of scientists wrote.

“SARS-CoV-2 can infect a wide range of host species, including cats, dogs, mink and other wild and domesticated species and, hence, the vaccination of domesticated animals might be required to halt further virus evolution and spillback events.”

The scientists added: “Whilst the vaccination campaigns against SARS-CoV-2/Covid-19 are being rolled out worldwide, new virus variants are likely to continue to evolve that have the potential to sweep through the human population.”

Meanwhile, the group is also calling on governments to continue enforcing strict control measures, such as mask mandates and social distancing orders, to reduce the evolution and spread of any new COVID variants.

Now that we are in the enlightened 21st century we know that the difference between animal and human diseases was all wrong think of the past several thousand years. And besides,,, might as well allow our fine veterinarians and animal hospitals in on the all the loot. Say $10,000 for a animal intubed. A quick thousand for each test. Yes,,, Thar’s money to be made for our hero’s combating this plague.

What we have is a super plague that can infect anything, anywhere, anytime, anyhow. The fact that 99.87% recover with 80-90% never knowing they have this plague shows just how sly this trickster disease is. Only the holy mask(s) and DNA changing vaccines have any effect. Painting a X on your door in blood might be of help as well.

Are they scrapping the bottom of loonies bins to find those scientists ??
I’m 100% positive that they all have a PhD in Gender Study from Harvard or Yale & Satnford

I’d find this humorous were it not so asinine. This Covid-19 hysteria is going to continue to get stupider and stupider. And our appointed all knowing leaders are going to keep it going, because in the “science they trust”. It makes me sick, does Covid-19 really even exist ? Because those who control perception shape reality, and media isn’t called programming by accident. Think about how much freedom was lost for good, and how much power was gained, and the elitist class has no intention of ever relinquishing it. We’ll eventually have to fight back one day, and those in power are making it unavoidable. Already our appointed President is drafting a terror bill that includes people who speak out against the Covid psyop.

Then why are the animals not already piled up in the streets like the people are? Oh, that is right, the bodies are NOT piled up.

The article cites the Dutch government culling of farmed mink as some sort of success. I guess the author is relying on people’s forgetfulness. The mass culling was a fiasco that nearly cost the PM her job and did cost the Danish agriculture minister their job. It was an unnecessary failure caused by government incompetence and stupidity.
