I believe this whole business is just a stepping stone to a larger agenda. More cases are now cropping up around the world. In the US, it will probably get out of hand and spread in Atlanta, then radiate outwards to the other states quietly.They will pprobably impose martial law and forced vaccinations. Then FEMA camps.

"The Strain" is a new show on FX and it is by Guillermo Del Toro...the "premise" is that a plane lands in JFK and all the passengers are dead, except for 4. The CDC obviously gets involved, but FBI/TSA whatever determines it was a carbon monoxide poisoning type of thing. One of the CDC guys (Sean Astin) agreed to let "a piece of cargo" go through customs unchecked.....that "piece of cargo" is obviously some sort of pathogen. The 4 who lived were quarantined, but then released after testing as they were all perfectly healthy. A couple of weeks goes by (21 days ring a bell) and they fall ill....

Bare with me here my memory is not sharp on this one, but does anyone remember a thread created by user "T" (or another user) concerning Africa being cleaned out for the return of a malignant Alien force?

Well that would be an interesting connection, as the "virus" appears to be brought in by some sort of reptoid, and they (from what I can tell now) are using humans to incubate their kind....

A disturbing report from Jim Stone that landed on my facebook page.

 

http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/phages.html

 

There have been many reports about nanobots being developed that will destroy people. This report actually identifies that nanobot and what it is based upon. Once this nanobot is received via a tainted vaccine, it inserts DNA into your cells which instructs your own cells to produce more copies of itself and THAT is how it replicates. And it NEVER backs off, it simply orders your own cells to keep producing it until your cells die from being over worked doing exactly that. And it's completely verified this thing came from a lab in 2007, scroll down to the pictures if you don't want to read a lot.

Does this not seem more odd as the days go by ,,

Ebola outbreak: Spain to accept Europe’s first confirmed case of the virus

Miguel Pajares, 75, a Spanish missionary priest working at a hospital in the West African country, will be taken to Spain by a military jet

Spain has been preparing to accept Europe’s first confirmed case of the Ebola virus.

A medically-equipped military jet has been sent to Liberia to repatriate Miguel Pajares, 75, a Spanish missionary priest working at a hospital in the West African country.

"Ebola outbreak began in February, around 300,000 people have died from malaria, while tuberculosis has likely claimed over 600,000 lives. Ebola might have our attention, but it’s not even close to being the biggest problem in Africa right now. Even Lassa fever, which shares many of the terrifying symptoms of Ebola (including bleeding from the eyelids), kills many more than Ebola"

 

There are more real threats than Ebola...

Ebola developments trigger CDC's highest response level

August 6, 2014
 

"With the Ebola virus disease (EVD) situation in Nigeria worsening, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today that it has moved its emergency operations center (EOC) to its highest activation level, an action it last took during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.

Meanwhile, countries including the United States and Saudi Arabia are following up on possible infections in travelers, with Spain announcing that it will bring a sick missionary priest in Liberia to Madrid for treatment, according to media reports.

Amid the other developments, the numbers of infections in West African countries hit by the outbreak grew steadily between Aug 2 and 4, with 108 new cases, along with 45 deaths, the World Health Organization (WHO) said today. The overall totals reached 1,702 cases and 931 deaths.

In addition, a WHO emergency committee today began discussing whether the unfolding disease threat amounts to an international public helath emergency.

CDC invokes top EOC level

The CDC EOC has moved to level 1 activation, reserved for the largest-scale responses that require substantial agency-wide efforts, CDC spokesman Tom Skinner told CIDRAP News."

WHO seeks advice on use of untried Ebola drugs in West Africa

The WHO will call on medical ethicists to ponder who should receive scarce experimental drugs for Ebola.

 

"The World Health Organization (WHO) said today it would call on medical ethicists next week to ponder the use of experimental drugs in West Africa's Ebola epidemic, in the wake of questions raised by the use of an unlicensed US-made drug in two American medical volunteers who contracted the deadly disease in Liberia.

The two workers, Keith Brantly, MD, and Nancy Writebol, were reported to have improved after being treated with ZMapp, a mixture of three monoclonal antibodies made by Mapp Biopharmaceuticals of San Diego.

The treatment of the two health workers "has raised questions about whether medicine that has never been tested and shown to be safe in people should be used in the outbreak and, given the extremely limited amount of medicine available, if it is used, who should receive it," the WHO said in a statement.

"We are in an unusual situation in this outbreak. We have a disease with a high fatality rate without any proven treatment or vaccine," Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, WHO assistant director-general, said in the statement. "We need to ask the medical ethicists to give us guidance on what the responsible thing to do is.""

Saudi Being Tested for Ebola Dies in Hospital

August 6, 2014

 

"A Saudi national, who fell ill after returning from Sierra Leone, died early Wednesday in his hospital isolation ward where he was being tested for the Ebola virus, said the Saudi Health Ministry.

The 40-year-old returned on Sunday from Sierra Leone, where there has been an Ebola outbreak, and was then hospitalized in Jiddah after showing symptoms of the viral hemorrhagic fever.

The patient's samples are being tested in an international reference lab on the advice of the World Health Organization. He had already tested negative for dengue fever."

American Ebola victims are the subjects of a science experiment

Julia Belluz

"In the absence of official confirmation about how the two American patients with Ebola are being treated, rumor and speculation filled the void.

First were the reports that the blood serum of a teenage Ebola survivor may have saved Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, who contacted the deadly disease in Liberia while working with the Christian aid organization Samaritan's Purse. The latest  news centers around an experimental "secret serum" called ZMapp. Already, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta has proclaimed that the medicine "appears to have worked.""

Liberia Government Orders Ebola Victims Cremated

August 4, 2014

 

"The Liberian government is ordering that all corpses of Ebola victims must be cremated as fears rise that the disease could be spread by bodies being buried in residential areas.

Information Minister Lewis Brown announced Monday on state radio that authorities now will cremate the remains of Ebola victims.

The order comes after a tense standoff erupted over the weekend when health workers tried to bury more than 20 Ebola victims on the outskirts of Monrovia.

Authorities said military police officers were called in to help restore order so that the burials could take place."

Ebola death toll rises to 887, Nigeria cases increase - WHO

August 5, 2014

 

"GENEVA (Reuters) - The death toll from the world's worst Ebola outbreak had risen to 887 by Aug. 1, while the total number of cases in the four West African countries affected stood at 1,603 on the same date, the World Health Organization said on Monday.

Guinea has suffered the highest death toll with 358 fatalities out of 485 confirmed Ebola cases so far. Sierra Leone has had the largest number of cases, 646 overall, and 273 deaths, while Liberia has had 468 cases and 255 deaths.

Nigeria, the latest country to import the disease, has had four cases, of which three are classed as 'probable' Ebola and one as 'suspected', the Geneva-based agency said in a statement."

Several Britons Quarantined For Ebola Amidst Claims The Virus May Be Airborne

August 7, 2014

Andre Walker

 

"Several British nationals have been voluntarily quarantined with suspected Ebola, according to the Daily Telegraph. The admission came from public health officials and follows revelations an individual in Cardiff had expressed fears they had contracted the disease.

The exact number of people quarantined and their exact location have not been confirmed, but they are believed to be spread across the UK. The problem faced by public health authorities is that tests for Ebola are ineffective until the patients show symptoms. This means that they have to wait up to 21 days, which is the maximum incubation period. 

The World Health Organisation has also claimed that the virus is spreading faster than they can control. This may be because of a misunderstanding about how the virus is transmitted, in 2012 a study suggested that Ebola may be transmitted through the air.

Whilst the study was not conclusive the BBC reported that Canadian scientists had found that Ebola had been transmitted between animals that had never come into direct contact. This suggests that the current theory that it is only transmitted by exchange of bodily fluids may be wrong."

Ebola myths range from dumb to deadly: Our view

August 6, 2014

From the Editorial Board of USA Today

 

Threat is less about catching the virus than about controlling it in Africa.

 

"Sometimes, misinformation can spread faster than a deadly virus, as proven in recent days by the hyperventilation about Ebola.

Tuesday, while a man who had visited West Africa was screened for the disease at a New York hospital, tabloids screamed about an "Ebola scare" in the Big Apple. On Wednesday, officials said the man doesn't have the virus.

With similar irresponsibility, Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., suggested that "with Ebola circulating and everything else," the U.S. needs to screen kids crossing the Mexican border. Never mind that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says an Ebola case has never originated outside Africa.

Rumor and myth are a dangerous brew when battling a deadly outbreak, even one centered half a world away. In the U.S., they can confuse the public and drive bad policy. In Africa, where rumors have kept people from seeking treatment, they can kill."

 

OTHER VIEWS: Research flows away from the poor

What's needed is accurate information, so here are a few facts:

 

  • Despite suggestions that each patient could be a modern-day Typhoid Mary, there is little chance of Ebola taking hold in the USA. Ebola is not spread through the air, like the common cold or flu, where droplets from coughs or sneezes can infect others. To get sick, a person would have to come in direct contact with bodily fluids of an infected person or with a contaminated object, such as a needle.
  • Though there is no cure for Ebola, experimental treatments are being developed, including one that appears to be working on two American missionaries being treated at Emory University. The World Health Organization was pushing Wednesday to explore the ethics of using the unproven drug in Africa.
  • Death rates have reached 90% in some outbreaks — a number widely publicized. But they've also been as low as 25% in Uganda in 2007. The rate in the latest outbreak is nearly 60%. If the disease reached the USA, patients almost certainly would fare better. Modern medicine can fight the symptoms of diarrhea, bleeding and dehydration.

House witnesses paint grim picture of Ebola epidemic

 

"A US House committee heard grim testimony today on West Africa's Ebola epidemic, with an official of a leading aid group asserting that inaction by the rest of the world has let the disease get out of control.

"It's clear to say that this disease is uncontained and out of control in West Africa," said Ken Isaacs, vice president of program and government relations for the relief group Samaritan's Purse (SP). "The international response has been a failure, and it's important to understand that."

He said SP's experts believe the official epidemic case numbers from the World Health Organization (WHO) represent only 25% to 50% of the true numbers. Yesterday the WHO put the Ebola total for Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria at 1,711 cases and 932 deaths."

"The governments simply do not have the capacity to handle the crisis in their countries," Isaacs added. "If a mechanism isn't found to create a paradigm for the international community to get involved, the world will effectively relegate the containment of this disease to three of the poorest nations in world."

Isaacs spoke at a hearing convened by the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations. The session was streamed over the Web.

The subcommittee also heard from several other witnesses, including Tom Frieden, MD, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who called the epidemic unprecedented in multiple ways but asserted that it can be stopped by using tried-and-true public health interventions."

Mpumalanga on high alert following Ebola outbreak

August 7, 2014

 

 

 

"Mbombela - All Mpumalanga healthcare facilities are on high alert following the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

Provincial health spokesperson Dumisani Malamule told African Eye News Service on Thursday that all hospitals and clinics are on alert for anyone who has travelled to "Viral Haemorrhagic Fever" risk areas, where Ebola is suspected or has been reported.

"The department has functional outbreak response teams at all levels. These teams are responsible for controlling and managing any suspected case of a communicable disease that has the potential to cause an outbreak or epidemic,” he said.

The latest information from the World Health Organisation (WHO) shows that Ebola is not yet under control in Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. New cases and deaths have been reported."

Allegations of Weaponized Viruses

During the same time frame, but buried behind the scenes, HIV and Ebola appeared in the same region of Africa for the first time nd at the same time.  HIV swept across much of Africa decimating a large swath of the population. Some African communities had as many as 90% of the adults die from the disease in some villages and towns. Was this merely a coincidence with regard to the UN Agenda 21 population reduction policies being put into place at the same time? The answer to that question is debatable. However, we are looking at a significant number of depopulation coincidences to swallow at one time. There are still other coincidences which need to be brought out into the open.

 

Is it a coincidence that the first two American healthcare workers who have contracted Ebola are now inside the United States? Is it coincidence that the most deadly outbreak of the disease in history have admittedly now killed nearly 900 West Africans already this year and the number is beginning to climb exponentially? Is it just a mere coincidence that President Obama has just signed an executive order to have the power to begin rounding up American citizens with respiratory diseases against their will? Is it just a coincidence that the FEMA camp incarceration style roundups of the homeless are beginning in Los Angeles County as this could easily be converted to Ebola quarantine centers? By the way, the homeless people are not allowed to leave these facilities once they are removed from the streets and “checked in”.

 

Perhaps the biggest coincidence has to do with the probability that Ebola is coming into America through the unprotected southern border. The prime suspects are an untold number of West Africans, estimated at 100,000 in Central America, streaming into the country as drug couriers. These West Africans are from the seven nation region in West Africa in which the live, uncontained Ebola outbreak is presently taking place. This fact , combined with the DHS/ICE policy of shipping the recent illegal immigrants to every corner of the country makes for a deadly cocktail which could culminate in a health crisis by Labor Day, given the fact that Ebola can incubate up to 21 days. Is this just another coincidence? If an Ebola outbreak does take hold in the United States, some like Dr. Pianka and Henry Kissinger will applaud the development as will the Club of Rome, the Bilderberg and eventhe New York Times.

Ebola Cases Mix With Malaria Amid ‘Slow-Motion Disaster’

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-08-06/malaria-cases-mix-with-ebola-amid-slow-motion-disaster-.html

By Makiko Kitamura and Silas Gbandia Aug 8, 2014 1:40 AM ET

 

As the death toll rises in West Africa amid the worst Ebola outbreak on record, a separate threat is compounding the problem: the rainy season and the malaria that comes with it.

 

In Sierra Leone, with the most Ebola cases in the epidemic, a fearful population is failing to seek medical attention for any diseases, health officials say. If they have malaria, the feeling is they don’t want to go near a hospital with Ebola cases. If it’s Ebola, they don’t believe the hospitals can help them anyway, instead turning to traditional healers.

 

It’s a widening challenge complicated by the fact that Ebola, malaria and cholera share common symptoms early on, including fever and vomiting, which can cause confusion among patients, said Cyprien Fabre, head of the West Africa office of the European Commission’s humanitarian aid department.

Sorry, it wasn't Toronto. It was Brampton.

 

Here's the story.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/man-who-visited-nigeria-taken-to-brampton-hospital-with-flu-like-symptoms-1.2731761

 

 

A hospital in Brampton, Ont., has instituted heightened infection-control procedures after a patient who had recently visited Nigeria was brought in with fever and flu-like symptoms.

 

 

The patient has been isolated at William Osler Health System’s Brampton Civic Hospital, which Peel Region health officials stress is purely precautionary given the patient’s travel history.

Dr. Eileen de Villa with Peel Public Health said the patient is showing a fever and other flu-like symptoms but cautioned there has been no diagnosis yet.

 

"I am aware that we are currently testing a patient who recently travelled from West Africa. Initial signs and symptoms of Ebola are similar to many more common diseases," Ontario Health Minister Dr. Eric Hoskins said in a release Friday night.

"One such disease relevant to African travel is malaria. There are currently no confirmed cases of Ebola in Ontario."

Hoskins said he is in close contact with the chief medical officer of health and they are closely managing the situation.

 

 

And the last quote doesn't reassure me in the slightest

 

 

"It’s unlikely that we’re going to see cases of Ebola virus that come to Canada," McGreer told CBC News. "But it’s important that we are precautionary about it, that we have systems in place to detect people.

"And the people those systems are going to detect are people who’ve travelled, probably not even to high risk areas in those countries, but to those countries and who now have malaria or influenza or one of the many other diseases that can give you a fever."

 

 

I'm sorry but Elvis has already left the building. I'm betting in the next few weeks we're going to see a lot of other countries outside of Africa that the disease has made its appearance. I hope to god I'm wrong.

 

I've learned from experience that when the people in charge tell you not to worry...that's when you should worry the most.

Time to stock up on liposomal vitamin C! If we want to beat a possible outbreak, prevention is key. We can properly prevent using proper nutrition through food sourced from clean areas, vitamin and mineral supplements from reputable dealers, and proper balance of mind,body, and soul.

For a brand of liposomal C I trust and use myself, no connection other then a happy consumer of their product: www.letstalkhealth.com

Best of luck to you all! I love my chani family and all the information we are able to freely share here!

First Saudi Ebola suspect buried

August 8, 2014

 

"JEDDAH — The first Saudi who was suspected to have contracted the Ebola virus was buried at Briman graveyard in north Jeddah that is dedicated for the burial of victims of infectious diseases. The authorities prevented his family from washing him, attend his burial or be present at his burial ceremony. The Saudi health authorities announced his death on Wednesday.

WHO declares Ebola a public health emergency

 

"Acting on the unanimous recommendation of an emergency committee, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan, MD, MPH, today declared that Ebola outbreak developments constitute a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC) and accepted a list of measures to limit the spread of the disease in and outside of Africa.

 

"This is the largest, most severe, and most complex outbreak in the nearly four-decade history of the disease," Chan said at a media briefing. "Its [the committee's] advice to me acknowledges the serious and unusual nature of the outbreak and the potential for further international spread."

 

In an update today, the WHO said the outbreak's total has spiraled to 1,779 infections, 961 of them fatal.

Chan spoke of an urgent need to confine the outbreak to its current locations but said the three main affected countries—Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia—don't have the capacity to curb the disease on their own.

 

"Our own collective health security depends on support for containment operations in these countries. I urge the international community to provide this support on a most urgent need basis, as soon as possible," she said."

How A Computer Algorithm Predicted West Africa’s Ebola Outbreak Before It Was Announced

HealthMap is an innovative tool that uses algorithms to scour tens of thousands of social media sites, local news, government websites, infectious-disease physicians’ social networks, and other sources to detect and track disease outbreaks. Sophisticated software filters irrelevant data, classifies the relevant information, identifies diseases and maps their locations with the help of experts.

The site is run by a group of 45 researchers, epidemiologists, and software developers at BCH. HealthMap was first introduced in 2006 with a core audience of public health specialists, but that changed as the system evolved and the public became increasingly hungry for information during the swine flu pandemic.

While public health workers still make up a large proportion of users, HealthMap has been adapted to be more user-friendly for the general public. It locates the outbreaks on a world map and creates a color-coding system that indicates the severity of an outbreak on the basis of news reportage about it. Users of the site can then analyze and visualize the data, gaining unprecedented views of disease outbreaks. Here’s what the output looks like:

Beyond the unique concept, two features make the tool particularly innovative. First, HealthMap goes well beyond the standard mashup and is more like a small-scale implementation of the long-awaited semantic web. The site, which the scientists previously described in the journal PLoS Medicine, creates machine-readable public health information from text indexed by Google News, the World Health Organization updates, reports from the Centers for Disease Control and other public health agencies, online listserv discussions, Twitter, and a number of other sources.

HealthMap uses these sources to generate information that includes locations of specific outbreaks and tracks new cases and deaths. In a truly ingenious concept, the system is also capable of logging public sentiment.
