Oh no!

Do Paralysis and Birth Defects suggest that Zika is really Classical Swine Fever Flavirus contracted from pigs in the ars of Brazil where both Zika and Classical Swine Fever are occurring?

Classical Swine Fever (CSF) - Hog Cholera (HC)

Classical swine fever (CSF), otherwise known as hog cholera (HC) or just swine fever, is a specific viral disease of pigs. It affects no other species. It is a notifiable disease in most countries of the world. Importance of CSF
CSF is one of the most economically-damaging pandemic viral diseases of pigs in the world. Many governments take it very seriously and adopt strict control policies, which include compulsory vaccination or slaughter and eradication policies.
In a susceptible (unvaccinated) herd almost all the pigs are affected. It causes generalised disease, including fever, malaise, lack of appetite, diarrhoea, paralysis, abortion, mummification and the birth of shaking piglets. Mortality is high.
Fortunately, there is only one serotype of the virus and attenuated vaccines are highly effective. Also, it does not spread on the wind or on insects or birds so standard precautions of farm biosecurity should keep it out. However it persists in uncooked and cured meat and these should not be fed to pigs.

Is Zika really Classical Swine Fever which is still a problem in pigs in Brazil?

How to spot classical swine fever

The signs of classical swine fever are very similar to African swine fever.
The main clinical signs are:
  • fever
  • loss of appetite
  • lack of energy
  • sudden death with few signs beforehand
Other signs can include:
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • red or dark skin, particularly on the ears and snout
  • swollen red eyes
  • laboured breathing and coughing
  • abortions, still-births and weak litters
  • nervous signs, eg convulsions and tremors in newborn piglets
  • weakness
There are several different strains of classical swine fever.
Pigs infected with mild strains may not become ill or show clinical signs.
Severe strains of the disease are generally fatal.

Zika: Fluid can build up inside a fetus' body for several reasons, Zecavati said. "The fluid typically collects in the heart, lung, abdomen and skin tissue," she said. "The fluid overwhelms the body's ability to function, leading to failure or collapse of major organs, resulting in mortality as high as 50%

Does the transmission of Classical Swine Fever Flavivirus teach us about the real transmission issues in Brazilian Zika disease?

Put two and two together: Are pigs in Caera, Brazil the real source of the Zika problem?

Zika is a problem in Caera, Brazil:

Classical Swine Fever Virus (also a Flavivirus like Zika) is also a problem in Caera, Brazil. It causes birth defects in pigs and rashes. Connect the dots. Do the research

If you're in Brazil, urge you scientists to consider the possibility that Zika is really another flavivirus, Classical Swine Fever virus.

Read this description of Classical Swine Fever Virus (which is infecting pigs in areas of Brazil with the so-called Zika problem)

Molecular Characterization of Classical swine fever virus Involved in the Outbreak in Mizoram

 Does this sound like Zika?

 "Highest mortality in young animals was observed during the outbreaks. Percent mortality in pre-weaned and weaned piglets was 50% while 10% in pigs above 1 year of age. The disease showed a variable course and clinical symptoms. The affected animals exhibited clinical signs of inappetance, high fever and constipation followed by diarrhea and haemorrhagic patches in skin, characteristic signs of classical swine fever. There were rashes in the belly, medial aspects of thigh and on the base of ears. Necrotic lesions developed on skin in later stages. Affected pigs showed staggering gait. Pregnant sows either aborted or delivered stillborn fetuses. Agalactia was most common sequele of farrowed sows. On post-mortem examination, pathological changes recorded were button ulcer, extensive haemorrhage in intestine, mesenteric lymph nodes, pharyngeal lymph node, and in palatine tonsils. Kidneys and urinary bladder showed haemorrhagic spots."

 5 Questions for Brazilian scientists and doctors about the Zika-related epidemic

1. Are areas with major pig population places where Zika-related disease and deformities are concentrated?

2. What is the overall health of pigs in Brazil and is it in any way affecting human health?

3. Are Classical Swine Fever and Zika-related diseases and deformities at all related?

4. Did Brazil ever really get rid of African Swine Fever in the 80s or has a low grade form of it been simmering in its pigs for three decades and is it now the underlying problem of Zika-related disease and deformities in humans? 

5. Is Zika Virus just a biomarker or opportunistic infection? Is some other agent the fundamental cause?
