Singapore: No birth defects linked to mothers diagnosed with Zika

Zika virus

(NaturalNews) The Zika virus has not gone away, but as it has spread from its outbreak origin in Brazil, we're finding out that it's certainly not the bogey man it has been made out to be.

In particular, evidence continues to mount that the virus really isn't linked to widespread microcephaly in newborn babies, as is evident in the city-state of Singapore.

The Straits Times reported earlier this month that two women who had been diagnosed with the Zika virus while they were pregnant have given birth to normal, healthy babies. In addition, the paper said, both mothers have since recovered from their illness.

The Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) went on to tell The Times that to date, no reported cases of Zika-linked microcephaly have been reported at all in the city-state. Microcephaly is a defect in which babies have much smaller-than-normal heads and brains, which can also lead to major developmental problems.

No cases, so no definitive link

The health ministry said that as of early November, 17 pregnant women in Singapore were confirmed to have contracted Zika – again, all with zero birth defects.

"Their doctors are following up closely with them to provide support and counselling," an MOH spokeswoman told The Times.

The family of a third woman that was found to have mosquito-borne Zika during her pregnancy told the paper that so far, her baby's development has been healthy and normal.

The health ministry said it was looking at plans to establish a national surveillance program so that officials could monitor the development of babies who are born to mothers that contracted Zika during pregnancy.

That said, officials at the MOH said that mothers in Singapore were not taking any additional risks. Many have stocked up on various forms of mosquito repellents, patches and air diffusers, after an outbreak of the virus was reported in August.

Others are also ensuring that no stagnant water – where mosquitoes often breed – is allowed to collect around their homes. And now that the wet season has hit Singapore, residents are more vigilant than ever.

In a series of columns, Natural News founder and editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, sought to expose the panic surrounding the virus as one that was manufactured by globalist health agencies.

The Zika-microcephaly hoax unravels

He noted in February that in spite of all the panic reporting of the virus outbreak in Brazil, Zika was never scientifically linked to microcephaly. At the time, he cited a report from a group of South American doctors who said that the brain deformations that were being seen were being caused by a mass fumigation of low-income Brazilian citizens with a chemical larvicide – not by Zika-carrying mosquitoes.

"What we're seeing with the brain deformations of children, in other words, is more like the history of thalidomide, a prescription medicine given to pregnant women that caused children to be born with limbs missing," he wrote, adding that the official narrative is to push the false Zika-microcephaly link to justify more chemical fumigation, along with more vaccines.

Adams went on to report in June on several reasons why Zika virus fears were being purposely overblown, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's claim that nearly all Zika infections are harmless, and that actions taken by Congress and the Obama administration were aimed at bolstering the vaccine and bio-agriculture industry.

"Because Zika virus fear fits a convenient funding narrative for chemical giants and vaccine manufacturers, it is being played up by the corrupt, criminally-run CDC and the Obama administration to funnel billions of dollars into the hands of vaccine corporations while ignoring the real causes of microcephaly," he wrote.

And in August, Adams noted the Zika hoax had completely unraveled, after Brazilian health officials learned that an expected explosion of microcephaly cases across the country had not occurred.

The news out of Singapore supports Adams' assertion that the virus cannot be scientifically linked to birth defects.
