Millions Of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes To Be Set Loose In US

https://dailycaller.com/

Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes will be released in the United States as part of an initiative to replace the insects carrying deadly diseases, the company behind the plan announced Tuesday.

The program, led by biotechnology company Oxitec, will release roughly 2 million genetically altered mosquitoes in California and Florida to fend off other mosquitoes carrying deadly diseases like Zika, yellow fever, dengue and chikungunya, the company said in a press release. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved Oxitec’s plan on March 8.

“Given the growing health threat this mosquito poses across the U.S., we’re working to make this technology available and accessible,” Oxitec chief executive officer Grey Frandsen said in the press release.

Oxitec’s mosquitoes are genetically modified to control the invasive Aedes aegypti mosquito, which first appeared in California in 2013, according to the company press release. The species are known to carry and spread various deadly diseases.

“These pilot programs, wherein we can demonstrate the technology’s effectiveness in different climate settings, will play an important role in doing so,” Frandsen added. “We look forward to getting to work this year.”

Mosquitoes are responsible for over 1 million human deaths per year due to the insect’s ability to carry and spread life-threatening diseases.

  1. another bioweapon from the US gov., fauci, and moderna, like Wuhan & Ukraine. Except in Ukraine docs they were using migratory birds to release bioweapons on Russia. Then there was the US tick Lyme disease bioweapon…

    but even IF this was legit, adding more bugs won’t stop those that already exist. but the real question would be, who the hell you think you are playing god and experimenting with our environment, and ultimately us when we inevitably get bitten by your tampering with god’s creations?

    of course that’s best case scenario. This IS bioweapon… covid stage 2. NWO culling of world population. Also, I know they’ve already unleashed this bioweapon where I live years ago, and I witnessed men doing it. I got bitten by several of their bioweapon mosquitos while I was in the area and went to the hospital with severe, life threatening reactions and rashes that started from the bites and spread over my body within minutes of being infected. this was a year or two before covid, and when I went to hospital, they told me a large influx of patients with bad reactions to bugbites had recently been plaguing emergency rooms.

    Just cuz it sounds like fiction doesn’t mean it is. If you’d told me 6 years ago that the US gov. would unleash covid on the world and use it to deny basic human rights I’d have said that was fiction. if you’d told me several years ago foolish Men would genetically modify dangerous insects and intentionally release vast numbers of them to dangerously experiment on our environment, i’d say that was fiction. when the zombie apocalypse becomes reality because men tinkered with genetics till they bring a nightmare plague on humanity, that fiction will no longer be ‘crazy conspiracy theory’

  2. 100s of millions of genetically modified humans have been set loose around the world thanks to the mRNA vaccines.
