Madeline Drexler does a fascinating piece of work in her book, Secret Agents, on the outbreak of the West Nile Virus in New York in 1999 where it tooks weeks to find out what virus was killing birds and people. Finally, on 22 September 1999, a CDC scientist loaded samples of the virus genome into a machine that automatically sequenced the DNA strands. The next morning, he submitted strings of genetic code over the internet to the National Library of Medicine GenBank and got a hit on the West Nile Virus.
Frequencies of pathogens are related to DNA. It is a lot faster and easier to determine a frequency sequence and then search gigabytes of data in the Frequency Research Foundation database than it is to spend weeks trying to culture a virus. A pathogen can often be identified within a few minutes.
After returning from long European trip in June 2016, I woke up at night with a pain in my chest. Testing for frequencies, then scanning the database, showed I was infected with the West Nile Virus. I then tested my dog who was sleeping with me and he had obviously picked up the virus in the Massachusetts woods while I was away.
Frequencies for several strains of West Nile Virus needed to be run to clear up the dog and me.
In addition, frequencies were transmitted to eliminate mosquitos from the woods where he stayed while I was gone using the Frequency Foundation mosquito service which requires only a small fee per month.
Mosquitos transmit many pathogens that have been found in my area:
- Lyme disease
- Zika virus
- West Nile virus
- Chikungunya virus
