But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
Increasing Pestilence in Diverse Places; Virus outbreak warning as rats could spark ‘Covid-like’ pandemic in UK
DISEASE-CARRYING rats may be responsible for the future outbreak of a “COVID-like” pandemic, researchers have claimed.

The tiny rodents, which are estimated to number in the hundreds of millions in the UK, are asymptomatic carriers of coronaviruses. Rats have been responsible for some of the deadliest pandemics in human history, such as the Black Death, and may have, consequently, evolved resistance to various pathogens. According to researchers at Princeton University in New Jersey, US, this makes rats a potential disease vector for future pandemics.
The worrying findings were published in a new study in the journal PLOS Computational Biology.
The paper suggests mice may have also developed a resistance to viral pathogens from ancestral infections.
Professor Mona Singh, the study’s lead author, said: “This raises the possibility that modern rodents may be reservoirs of SARS-like viruses.”
Both the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 and the SARS-CoV virus behind the 2002 SARS epidemic, belong to the coronavirus family of pathogens.
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, which means they infect humans and animals alike.
These viruses typically cause respiratory and intestinal illnesses and have already caused three epidemics in the last 20 years – SARS in 2002, MERS in 2012, and COVID-19 in 2019.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is believed to have jumped to humans from infected horseshoe bats in China’s Wuhan City, Hubei Province, in late 2019.
The winged mammals are also suspected of passing the virus onto other species – possibly pangolins.
Much like the rats identified by the Princeton researchers, the bats can carry multiple coronaviruses without falling ill themselves.
According to the researchers, this raises the need to identify and better understand which other species have developed a resistance to viral pathogens.
Last year, for example, scientists studying Uganda’s native bat populations identified a strain of the airborne rubella virus, which is responsible for German measles.
The researchers warned that their findings highlight the dangers of humans encroaching on wild habitats.
Health experts around the globe fear that climate change, globalisation and unchecked urbanisation are fuelling the spread of new diseases.
As more humans come into contact with wild animals, there is a growing risk of previously-unknown viruses and bacteria infecting people.
This was the case with SARS in 2002, which has also been linked to horseshoe bats as well as masked palm civets.
Another prime example of a deadly virus that has jumped from animals to humans is the Zaire ebolavirus that causes Ebola.
The virus has been linked to African fruit bats, chimpanzees, gorillas and forest antelopes.
Together with graduate student Sean King, Professor Singh performed an evolutionary analysis of the protein spikes used by SARS viruses to infect their hosts.
Also known as ACE2 receptors, the protein spikes hook onto the surface of mammal cells and provide an entry point.
The analysis found SARS-like infections have not been evolutionary drivers in the history of primates.
However, some species of rodents were found to have been repeatedly exposed.
Professor Singh said: “Our study suggests ancestral rodents may have had repeated infections with SARS-like coronaviruses.
“They have acquired some form of tolerance or resistance to SARS-like coronaviruses as a result of these infections.
“This raises the tantalising possibility some modern rodent species may be asymptomatic carriers of SARS-like coronaviruses – including those that may not have been discovered yet.”
Earlier this year, the UK’s top scientific advisers at SAGE found that coronaviruses could be transmitted by rats.
However, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) assured that the risk of people being infected is “very low” unless they work near the rodents.
DEFRA researchers also claimed rats can catch the virus from humans, in particular the Kent and South African variants.

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.
Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man
Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!
Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
