Congo Ebola outbreak spreading faster than ever: WHO

April 1, 2019     

(The April 1 story corrects paragraph 5 to show more than half of last week’s deaths occurred outside treatment centers, not three quarters)

"GENEVA (Reuters) - Democratic Republic of Congo’s Ebola outbreak is spreading at its fastest rate yet, eight months after it was first detected, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday.

Each of the past two weeks has registered a record number of new cases, marking a sharp setback for efforts to respond to the second biggest outbreak ever, as militia violence and community resistance have impeded access to affected areas.

Less than three weeks ago, the WHO said the outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever was largely contained and could be stopped by September, noting that weekly case numbers had halved from earlier in the year to about 25.

But the number of cases hit a record 57 the following week, and then jumped to 72 last week, said WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier. Previous spikes of around 50 cases per week were documented in late January and mid-November.

More alarmingly, more than half of the Ebola deaths last week occurred outside of treatment centers, according to Congo health ministry data, meaning there is a much greater chance they transmitted the virus to those around them."

Sharp increase in Congo Ebola deaths as medical teams hit by attacks

April 30, 2019

"KINSHASA, Congo — Ebola cases and deaths in eastern Congo have risen sharply in the past week, authorities said Tuesday, placing the blame on recurrent attacks on treatment centers and health workers.

There were 126 new cases and 83 deaths between April 22 and April 28, according to the Ministry of Health in Kinshasa.

The number of fatalities has risen rapidly, from around 600 at the end of March to over 900 a month later.

“As soon as there is a security incident, such as the destruction of the Ebola treatment centers or the murder of our colleague (from the World Health Organization), the main response activities are suspended for an indefinite period,” ministry spokeswoman Jessica Ilunga told dpa.

“Without these activities, the virus continues to spread and kill more people in the community,” she added.

So far there have been 1,480 cases and 970 deaths, since the outbreak — the second-largest in history — began last year.

Numerous militia groups operate in eastern Congo, most fighting over the country’s rich natural resources."

‘The world has never seen anything like this’: WHO chief on battling Ebola in a war zone

May 2, 2019            Amy Maxmen

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus talks about fighting the outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo amid attacks on health workers.

"The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is distraught. The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) continues to worsen, and his front-line responders are under attack.

On 4 May, Ghebreyesus will attend the funeral of a 41-year old epidemiologist, Richard Mouzoko, who was shot dead in the city of Butembo on 19 April by men who reportedly shouted, “Ebola doesn’t exist!” Dozens of other Ebola responders have been assaulted in recent months in the northeastern DRC — a region that has been wracked by conflict for decades.

Since the outbreak started nine months ago, nearly 1,000 people have died from Ebola, and the rate of new infections is climbing. Nature spoke with Ghebreyesus shortly after he returned from a visit to Butembo. The conversation has been edited for length and clarity..

How was your visit with Ebola responders?
When we arrived, they were waiting for us in big numbers. I couldn’t stop thinking about Richard. I couldn’t even control my emotions. I was supposed to speak with them, but it was difficult to express how I felt. I just broke. I was thinking of his four kids, and looking at his friends there in the field, and thinking about the risk they were taking to save others.

How did they feel?
I could see how shocked they were. But at the same time, many said, “We are life-savers — we will not be intimidated by this attack. We will strengthen our resolve, and we will fight to finish Ebola.”

They could have said, “Take us away, we don’t want to risk our lives.” They didn’t say that. They said, “We will fight,” and I was so humbled and proud.

You should imagine the conditions they are living in. They have a curfew of 6 p.m. Getting hot water for baths is difficult. There is the risk of Ebola infection. And the attacks are frequent.

Why do the responders stay?
The commitment they have to their profession. They are saying that they promised to save others — to serve others. It’s an oath that is driving them. And they see people suffering from three decades of conflict with all types of disease. They see the level of poverty, and all of the problems the population faces, and they feel that what they are doing is right."

Redd's already posted about this outbreak in China from the Bloomberg link on Human/Animal Disease thread, but here to tie up with the human cases, I post an RT link of the same pig cases here.

 

The implication is quite weird but I suspect the mutation is on agenda by using pigs as carriers, which CAUSE A PAUSE FOR the IPS CELL TREATMENTS IF TO GROW THE ORGANS WITHIN THE PIG'S BODY.

This is possibly just one tool to DELAY the Humans receiving life saving technical development we were promised by the friendly alien allies. (Yeah they were talking about extending our life, saving us from loads of diseases.....it has began, but the opponents are also waging in to destruct the process, too. )

...........Mind you, saying the above.....I actually oppose growing anything of human parts within pig's body. That's still morally wrong I feel (Apparently, the body of the pigs being used for growing human parts are also ok to consume the rest of the body after the parts are harvested, but.....BUT......would you feel ok to eat them while they had a human parts, human cells in the body interacting with pig's blood? I really want to avoid using pigs or any living animals for the production of new body parts. ), and creates basically thinner wall for pig's disease to jump into the Humans.

If I'm wrong on this understanding, please let me know and direct me with the correct way to see the situation.

I'm with you unity, 100% against growing human organs via a pig or any animal.  In forensics, if they're trying to determine how long a body was deceased/buried, they have body farms where they bury part of a pig to determine state of decomposition for human remains, because the flesh is so comparative to human.  No thanks.

Ebola cases top 1,700 in DRC as 4 health workers infected

Stephanie Soucheray              May 13, 2019

 

"Editor's Note: The original headline for this story was incorrect. Four new cases involve healthcare workers, not necessarily doctors. The headline was corrected later on May 13.

Once again, violent clashes in the Ebola outbreak region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have resulted in a spike of cases. Over the weekend and through today, the DRC's ministry of health recorded 56 new Ebola cases, including 4 in healthcare workers, and 19 new deaths.

The new cases bring the outbreak total to 1,705, including 1,124 deaths. A total of 251 suspected cases are still under investigation. The total number of health workers infected during the outbreak is now 101.

All newly infected health workers, from Mabalako, Kalunguta, Butembo, and Manugurujipa, were unvaccinated. The DRC health ministry reported 13 new cases on May 11, 18 yesterday, and 25 today.

As of today, 114,553 people have been vaccinated against Ebola, including more than 28,000 front-line health workers. 

Several cities and villages reported new cases over the last 3 days, including 14 in Kalunguta and 13 in Mbalako. Of the 19 deaths, 15 took place in the community, which raises the risk of further disease transmission.

Evaluating treatment center after MSF departure
Two months ago, Doctors without Borders (MSF) withdrew staff from Butembo and Katwa amid increasing security threats, and the operation of Butembo and Katwa's Ebola treatment centers (ETCs) transferred to the ministry of health, the World Health Organization, and UNICEF.'

Ebola confirmed in a city of more than 1 million in Congo

May 20, 2019      Cara Anna

 

"JOHANNESBURG (AP) — The global health community gulped Thursday with the announcement that a case of Ebola had been confirmed in a city of more than 1 million in Congo, bringing the latest outbreak of the often deadly hemorrhagic fever out of remote rural areas. “Confirmation of urban #Ebola in #DRC is a game changer in this outbreak – the challenge just got much much tougher,” the World Health Organization’s emergencies chief, Dr. Peter Salama, said on Twitter. Here’s a look at the outbreak.

What is Ebola?

snip

What just happened?

Congo’s Ebola outbreak has spread to the capital of northwestern Equateur province. The country’s health minister says two suspected cases of hemorrhagic fever were reported in the Wangata health zones, which includes Mbandaka, a city of nearly 1.2 million people. One sample proved positive for the Ebola virus. Mbandaka is about 150 kilometers (93 miles) from Bikoro, the rural area where the outbreak was announced last week.

Congo Health Minister Oly Ilunga says he is worried because Mbandaka is densely populated and at the crossroads of Equateur province. The city lies on the Congo River, a crucial travel hub in the vast country where infrastructure is largely poor. Downstream is Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, with a population of roughly 10 million. "

DRC Ebola cases top 1,800 amid burial team attacks

May 20, 2019               Lisa Schniming

"Blowing past the 1,800 case mark, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) reported 39 cases over the weekend as well as a pair of assaults on burial teams, along with 10 new infections today, according to the latest official reports, raising the outbreak's total to 1,826.

In his keynote speech to mark the opening of the World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva today, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, PhD, praised the DRC health minister and its government for their leadership and commitment to ending the outbreak, but added that the risk of spread beyond the two affected provinces remains very high.

"We are fighting one of the world's most dangerous viruses in one of the world's most dangerous areas," Tedros said, emphasizing that outbreak responders are also battling insecurity, violence, misinformation, mistrust, and politicization of the event.

He said he has met with the DRC's president and opposition leaders to press for a multipartisan approach for ending the outbreak. "Unless we unite to end this outbreak, we run the very real risk that it will become more widespread, more expensive, and more aggressive."

Breaking: EBOLA CONCERNS in Texas after Illegals from Congo Cross Border into US

May 31, 2019                JIm Hoft

"According to sources in Texas US Border Patrol Agents have apprehended illegal aliens crossing into the US from Congo.
There currently is a deadly Ebola outbreak in Congo.

 

** Travelers to this area could be infected with Ebola if they come into contact with an infected person’s blood or other body fluids.
** Travelers should seek medical care immediately if they develop fever, headache, body aches, sore throat, diarrhea, weakness, vomiting, stomach pain, rash, or red eyes during or after travel.

The UN was urged earlier this week to ramp up Ebola prevention work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the highest level of emergency response.

Brian Kolfage told The Gateway Pundit that the “We Build the Wall” organization was told of these developments earlier this week during their construction project near El Paso.

IF you go to his twitter feed, you'll see he was catching flack about this, but further on down, he states his source is very trusted.  Does anyone really think the CDC or MSM would announce this?   I just know they've said people from 50 countries have been trying to, or had, crossed the border, this included African countries.  I really want this to be wrong, for everyone's sake.

BREAKING: Ebola cases triple in Congo as efforts to fight plague 'falter'

June 4, 2019

 

"It is now the second worst outbreak of the virus on record as efforts to contain the spread have faltered in the remote and unstable region.

Attacks by armed militias and a lack of trust in health workers have added to the problem.

The outbreak reached 1,000 cases in March, more than seven months after it was first detected in August last year.

It took less than three more months to reach 2,000, according to Democratic Republic of Congo’s health ministry and aid agency figures.

More than 1,300 people have died.

The task is to overcome the resistance from communities who believe Ebola is a conspiracy by aid groups and the government.

At the same time they the aid workers have to deal with the armed groups that are looking to stoke instability for their own gain.

Oxfam’s Congo country director Corinne N’Daw said there is no point in having the treatment if people won’t use it."

No 'reset' with Ebola outbreak, WHO official says

Stephanie Soucheray           June 6, 2019

 

"Today leaders from the World Health Organization (WHO) said the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) remains contained to a small geographic area, but that does not mean the virus is retreating.

"At any point it could flare up within a zone," said Mike Ryan, MD, a WHO assistant director-general. Ryan, citing information contained in yesterday's WHO Ebola situation report, said there are some encouraging signs, including lower transmission rates in known hot spots and more surveillance.

"Surveillance has intensified to 1,300 alerts per day, of which between 200 and 300 are validated and tested,” Ryan said. "The number of contacts being followed is 15,000."

Ryan said the outbreak's reproduction rate is 1.04, meaning that every Ebola case begets one additional case. That means transmission is flat, not increasing, but also not decreasing significantly.

As many as 25% of cases missed
Throughout the press conference, Ryan called the outbreak complex. In addition to the security challenges in the region, he said certain health-seeking behavior and community death practices have contributed to the outbreak's longevity."
