UN's smallpox terror alert October 22nd, 2001 Posted: 0022 GMT
Governments around the world have been warned to prepare against a terrorist smallpox attack which could kill millions. The World Health Organisation has told them to ensure they can produce enough vaccine to protect their population against the disease, and is preparing to order mass precautionary vaccination of all citizens.
'The unthinkable is no longer unthinkable and we need to prepare for that,' said a spokesperson for the WHO, the United Nations' health agency. 'There has been a lot of concern about a smallpox outbreak. The numbers it would kill are scary.' The British Government last week issued emergency guidance to health professionals on how to deal with an outbreak. The guidance, seen by The Observer, says smallpox is a serious threat because it is easily passed from person to person, has a fatality rate of up to 90 per cent, can kill in 48 hours, and few people have been vaccinated. 'In the event of a deliberate release, it is unlikely that single, mild cases will occur - it is more likely that clusters of moderate to severe disease will be seen.'

OAS_AD('Top'); Smallpox Monday, February 24, 2003 OAS_AD('Middle'); What Is It? Scientifically known as variola, smallpox is among the few contagious bioterror agents. The last naturally occurring case was in Somalia in 1977 and the World Health Organization declared it eradicated in 1980. Symptoms are severe and permanently disfiguring. To pass the disease on to someone else, direct face-to-face contact is required. It falls somewhere between tuberculosis and chickenpox in its level of contagiousness. Smallpox is lethal in about 30 percent of all cases. Two other forms of smallpox are historically rare but usually fatal: Purpura Variolosa , or hemorrhagic-type smallpox, and Flat-type smallpox . These two variations usually develop in 3 percent and 5 percent, respectively, of people infected with variola major Variola minor , a variation of the smallpox virus, is less severe than the major strain, and kills about 1 percent of those infected. After the anthrax attacks in the United States in the fall of 2001, the U.S. government ordered production of enough smallpox vaccine to vaccinate the entire U.S. population should it be needed. How Is It Spread?

(CNN) For the past year, the U.S. government and health officials have been debating whether Americans should be vaccinated against the smallpox virus. Meanwhile, Israel is already doing it. In just three months, the Israeli government has gone from making the decision to nearly completing the task of vaccinating 15,000 health workers, police officers and others that would likely be first on the scene in the event of a smallpox outbreak. And the United States is watching closely, because this is one dangerous vaccine. "The authorities have tremendous interest in what's going on, in what our experiences are," said Dr. Boaz Lev, director of the Israeli Health Ministry. And the experience has been good, according to the ministry.

An Update on Smallpox
By Michelle Meadows The last confirmed case of smallpox in the United States occurred in 1949, and the last naturally occurring case in the world was recorded in Somalia in 1977. Three years later, the World Health Organization declared that smallpox had been eradicated. But if terrorists were to intentionally introduce just a single case of smallpox today, it could mushroom into a public health emergency, experts say. In December 2002, President Bush announced a comprehensive plan to protect Americans from smallpox if it were to be used in a bioterrorist attack. The plan addresses actions to quickly contain an outbreak through vaccination. As part of this plan, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been working with state and local governments to develop a national stockpile of smallpox vaccine. The only smallpox vaccine currently licensed by the Food and Drug Administration is Dryvax (smallpox vaccine, dried, calf lymph type), made by Wyeth Laboratories Inc. in Marietta, Pa. "The vaccine was first approved in 1931, and the existing lots were manufactured in the 1970s and early 1980s and stored frozen," says William Egan, deputy director of the FDA's Office of Vaccine Research and Review. "The vaccine lots remained fully potent." In October 2002, the FDA approved a license supplement for a 100-dose kit of Dryvax, with a new supply of diluent (the liquid that's mixed with dried vaccine before it's administered) and needles for administration, Egan says. "Before the approval of this supplement, Dryvax was available only under an investigational new drug (IND) application. Now the vaccine can be distributed and used as any other approved product." Along with Dryvax, there are several other smallpox vaccines that are being evaluated under INDs.

Health authorities are reminding people who get the shot to keep the spot where they were inoculated covered and to avoid touching the skin and the bandages that cover it. Even people who have not been vaccinated can become ill if they touch the inoculation site of someone who was. Both women are recovering and not expected to have permanent scars.

What is smallpox?
Naturally occurring smallpox is a serious infectious disease that is usually spread from person to person through close contact. It is caused by the variola virus. Across studies, naturally occurring smallpox (variola major) has a fatality rate of approximately 30%. Smallpox can also cause permanent disabilities, such as terrible scarring and blindness. There is no FDA-approved treatment for smallpox disease. The only approved preventive intervention is vaccination. The last case of smallpox in the United States (U.S.) occurred in 1949, and routine vaccination in the U.S. was stopped in 1971. The last naturally occurring case in the world occurred in Somalia in 1977, and the World Health Organization determined in 1980 that the global vaccination campaign against smallpox had been successful in eliminating naturally occurring disease from the world. As a result, routine vaccination against smallpox on a worldwide basis was stopped because it was no longer necessary for prevention. More recently, the U.S. government has become concerned that smallpox could be used as a weapon of bioterrorism, and is developing new vaccination strategies for both military personnel and civilians. Smallpox (variola major) is a particularly dangerous biological weapon threat because of the severity of the illness it causes and the fact that it can be spread from person to person.

Woman has reaction to smallpox vaccine
More than 1,000 health employees have volunteered to receive the smallpox vaccine. Story Tools MIAMI, Florida (AP) More than 500 people were vaccinated for smallpox on the first day of the state's inoculation program for health workers, officials said Tuesday. One woman suffered a mild allergic reaction during Monday's vaccinations. It was believed to be the first adverse reaction since the voluntary program started nationwide last month. The woman, who was not identified, was treated and released. State health secretary Dr. John Agwunobi said officials "were very relieved to see that the individual is getting better. Right now we're all feeling a great sigh of relief." Florida's vaccination program is designed to create a team that could safely respond if the disease is used as part of a bioterrorist attack. Officials said up to 2,000 state public health employees were expected to be vaccinated through the week. The number of first-day inoculations in Florida dwarfs the released totals of any of the other 19 states that have reported data from their inoculation programs.

Elizabeth Cohen: Medical field split on smallpox vaccine
CNN's Elizabeth Cohen Story Tools Editor's note: In our Behind the Scenes series, CNN correspondents share their experiences in covering news around the world. CNN medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen filed this report Friday from the University of Connecticut Health Center, site of the first public smallpox vaccination program in 30 years. FARMINGTON, Connecticut (CNN) – The medical field is divided into two camps. The first camp says, "I'm going to roll up my sleeves, I want this vaccination. If there is a smallpox attack, I need to be prepared so I can take care of patients." The other camp says, "You know, I don't think a smallpox attack is likely. The president hasn't given me a good argument. I'm not going to take the health risks associated with the vaccine when I don't think there is going to be a smallpox attack." So people are divided, and there are very intelligent and reasonable people on both sides. Today I saw the folks who said "This is my duty as a doctor or a nurse to do this. It's my duty as a citizen to do this."

    [excerpted from the 7th ed. of The Sanctity of Human Blood , available 2003]

With a flair worthy of PT Barnum and Edward L Bernays, mainstream media is lately employing a brilliant menage of pseudoscience and well-edited history to concoct a new myth out of thin air: terrorists are about to release smallpox as a bioweapon that could decimate our population. But soft! - our ever-vigilant security forces are ready. Government leaders with degrees in law, not science, have decided to prepare enough vaccine to inoculate every American. And to empower themselves to legislate the vaccine's administration, sanctioned by severe penalties for refusal. [12] Price tag for the new doses: over $800 million . [28] But what is money when compared with the health and security of the American people? Answer: it's still money. Almost every day a new story comes out in the major news Matrix about the coming threat and the vaccine that will save us. In true Edward L Bernays fashion, [13] the features are generally written by the "health correspondent" with the requisite lack of credentials, disregard of history, and the standard formidable barrage of uncited and anonymous sources. But we are not taken in, not us, because we know that forgetting history, we are destined to repeat it. So let's try something unknown to the meretricious press - let's review the actual history and science of smallpox and apply it to the present.

Military Personnel Suffer More Heart Troubles Than Expected After Smallpox Vaccinations, Researcher Says
By Chris Schneidmiller

Global Security Newswire
WASHINGTON - More than 70 people suffered heart troubles after receiving smallpox vaccinations from the U.S. Defense Department, a surprisingly high figure compared to the limited cases of other health problems linked to those inoculations, a Walter Reed Army Medical Center researcher said this week (see GSN, April 13). "Reported rates of noncardiac complications have been very low, in line with the rates of complications we saw historically, when children were routinely vaccinated for smallpox," Dimitri Cassimatis, a Walter Reed cardiology fellow, said in a prepared statement on his clinical review of reactions to smallpox vaccinations among military personnel. "The rate of cardiac complications, however, has been higher than expected," he added. continues Cardiac Concerns Persist

Drug company finds more smallpox vaccine
By Christy Feig CNN Medical Unit WASHINGTON (CNN) Millions of doses of smallpox vaccine have been found in the freezer of a pharmaceutical company, government sources said Thursday. The vaccine, which was made in the late 1950s, was found several months ago and discussions about what will become of it have been under way between the company, Aventis Pasteur, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Of biggest concern for the government is whether the vaccine is still effective, and if so, could it be diluted to create enough doses to cover Americans should the need arise. A big concern for Aventis is protection from lawsuits should problems arise in clinical trials if it hands the product over to the government. For now both sides are mum on the details, but they plan to release specifics in the next few days.

Various physicians and researchers associated with the CDC presented by public participants and many testimonies and comments.
