Posted November 01, 2018 07:01:11The story of a Michigan state vaccine lead to the death of thousands and the deaths in many other states is being told in the most dramatic way.
The saga began when a state-run company decided to run an outbreak of a rare strain of coronavirus in the Detroit metro area.
In March, Michigan State University researchers announced they had discovered a vaccine-related variant that was 100 times more potent than the common coronaviruses.
The virus, known as EV-D68, was a threat to the nation’s health system and had not previously been detected in Michigan.
The outbreak was brought under control when the state stopped using the experimental vaccine, which was developed at the University of Michigan.
By the time the coronaviral variant was found to be 100 times stronger than the other two, the outbreak had been eradicated.
However, the virus had been found in the bodies of some 7,000 people.
The Michigan State researchers have since been able to trace the source of the virus and its transmission, but the full story is still a mystery.
A group of scientists, including a former University of Washington epidemiologist, recently said they believe the virus originated in China, which has a long history of producing coronavivirus strains that have been resistant to other drugs.
In April, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said the state was taking steps to isolate people with EV-DS68 infections and to try to stop their spread.
A similar effort was under way in the state of Washington, where the coronovirus is the third-most deadly.
In August, Michigan authorities announced that a total of 913 people had died.
By October, the state had announced that it had stopped administering the experimental coronavirin vaccine.
The federal government said that it was now monitoring the situation and was taking other measures.
In a letter to the governors of Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Minnesota, the federal government warned that EV-Ds68 was spreading in the United States.
The letter said: “While it is premature to determine the cause of the outbreak, we have reason to believe that EVD-68 was a direct or indirect result of the use of this vaccine.”
But the federal response to the outbreak was limited to the state and didn’t affect people in the rest of the country.
The state of Michigan was able to recover its virus, but at the cost of many lives.
The coronavirent is still being studied, but some experts are questioning the ability of the vaccine to protect against the virus.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) said the vaccine was safe and effective, but it also acknowledged the virus posed a threat and called for a wider rollout of the vaccination programme.
The new outbreak has forced some state governors to call for an end to the coronivirus vaccine programme.
“There is an urgent need to stop the spread of this disease in the US and other countries and the need for the federal and state governments to be able to get that vaccine out there, so that we can ensure that it does not get into other countries, too,” said Michael Binder, a scientist with the Vaccine Education and Research Center at Johns Hopkins University.
“The state is now the biggest player in the vaccine rollout in the world, and we have a real risk of this virus being out in the wider community.”
A spokesperson for the CDC said it was aware of the situation in Michigan, and was investigating the cause.
“This is a serious public health issue, and as a precautionary measure we have stopped the distribution of this vaccination programme,” the spokesperson said.
“If the US becomes infected with EVD, we will send a message to the virus through our Vaccine Action Plan, which includes an emergency vaccination programme, including for children and pregnant women.”
