La Crosse Virus is the Second-Most Common Virus in the US Spread by Mosquitoes – and Can Cause Severe Neurological Damage in Rare Cases

For the Laudick family of Greensburg, Indiana, life forever changed on Aug. 5, 2013. That was the day 4-year-old Leah Laudick told her mom, Shelly, that she had a bad headache.
Two days later, Leah was hospitalized nearby with worsening headaches and a slightly elevated white blood cell count. She slept for most of the day and by Aug. 9 was largely unresponsive.
That day, during her transfer to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, Leah had her first of several seizures. Doctors were unable to identify her illness – tests for diseases like meningitis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and herpes simplex all came back negative.
One day later, on Aug. 10, Leah’s brain activity stopped. That evening she passed away in the arms of her grieving parents. (See link for article)
A Bill Gates funded factory breeds 30 million mosquitoes to release in 11 countries and genetically modified mosquitoes are now vaccinating humans.
What could possibly go wrong?
Mainstream media & medicine will not connect the fact that millions of mosquitoes are being released all over the world with subsequent changes in ecology, disease transmission, human/animal health, the fact DARPA is involved and where “toxicity is health, and the old crazy is the new normal.” BTW: it’s happening in Lymeland too.
Just repeat “It’s safe and effective.”
- The only reason we know about this case is due to Leah’s father emailing the author (an associate professor of entomology) asking how he could help with her work and agreeing to tell their story.
- The family learned a few months after her death that La Crosse virus was the culprit.
- While West Nile Virus makes up more than 90% of annual viral infections from mosquitoes or ticks, La Crosse is the next most prevalent virus causing 2% of mosqui or tickborne viral infections a year which extrapolates out to 50-150 cases per year.
- Historically most cases occurred in the upper Midwest but the majority now occur in the southern Appalachia region.
- Nobody knows why but there’s plenty of trollop about the climate
- It is carried and transmitted primarily by the eastern tree-hole mosquito, Aedes triseriatus, a native species found throughout most of the Eastern U.S. This mosquito’s preferred habitat is places with obvious tree holes for female mosquitoes to deposit their eggs, such as hardwood forests.
- It may also be transmitted by two exotic and invasive mosquito species: the tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, and the bush mosquito, Aedes japonicus.
- It’s hard to diagnose because it looks similarly to the flu.
- The only way to test for it is to send it to the completely and utterly corrupt CDC, which monopolizes testing and maligns any other labs or tests.
- Cases tend to cluster in local communities so those successfully diagnosed can tell local doctors and officials it is present in their area.
- Symptoms start with fever, fatigue, vomiting, and headache that lasts nearly 2 weeks. Most recover; however, like West Nile, it is neuroinvasive and the immunocompromised can have severe cases which are typically discovered in the hospital after experiencing a seizure, coma, partial paralysis of one side, or an altered mental state. Some experience long term neurological damage and in rare cases, death.
- Similarly to Lyme/MSIDS, the best antidote is to prevent the bite in the first place:
- get rid of outdoor objects that catch and contain water to reduce mosquito breeding
- avoid mosquitoes by staying inside during peak hours in the early evening
- use repellents like mosquito coils, and bug spray
- wear light clothing
