Rapidly Mutating Ebola Renders Diagnostic Tests Inaccurate – AKA: You May Have a New Strain of Ebola and Test Negative

An international team of scientists — some of whom succumbed to the virus during the course of their research — has sequenced 99 Ebola virus genomes from 78 patients in Sierra Leone, creating a valuable trove of genetic data for scientists and health care workers struggling to bring the growing outbreak under control.



“We were able to sequence and analyze our samples with about a 10-day turnaround. This is unprecedented, as earlier studies have usually taken many months with much smaller datasets,” says Daniel J. Park, a co-author and computational biologist at the Broad Institute, in an email interview with Mashable.

The research, which used an advanced genetic analysis technique known as deep sequencing, reveals that the disease is rapidly accumulating mutations as it spreads.

The team found 395 genetic changes, including 341 that make this outbreak distinct from the viral genomes tied to previous Ebola outbreaks, and 50 that are unique to the West African outbreak more broadly.

Of particular interest are mutations that alter protein sequences, since they could potentially change the accuracy of diagnostic tests for the virus as well as vaccines and therapies. 

It is unclear if these mutations are related to the severity of the current outbreak, but further genetic analysis could determine this.

For starters, the data show that the virus is rapidly accumulating new mutations as it spreads through people. “We’ve found over 250 mutations that are changing in real time as we’re watching,” Sabeti says.

While moving through the human population in West Africa, she says, the virus has been collecting mutations about twice as quickly as it did while circulating among animals in the past decade or so.

“The more time you give a virus to mutate and the more human-to-human transmission you see,” she says, “the more opportunities you give it to fall upon some [mutation] that could make it more easily transmissible or more pathogenic.”

Sabeti says she doesn’t know if that’s happening yet. But the rapid change in the virus’ genome could weaken the tools researchers have to detect Ebola or, potentially, to treat patients.

Diagnostic tests, experimental vaccines and drugs for Ebola — like the one recently used to treat two American patients — are all based on the gene sequences of the virus, Sabeti says. “If the virus is mutating away from the known sequence, that could be important to how these things work.”

Airborne Ebola Cover Up Spreads To Canada

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

The Public Health Agency of Canada has just joined the CDC in a cover up regarding the “airborne” transmission of the deadly Ebola Virus which has now killed over 1,500 hundred and infected more than 3,000 in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and Nigeria.

On August 6, 2014, All News PipeLine reported the CDC removed the words “contaminated air” from their fact sheet, providing the current version as well as the archived version as proof and now we see the Public Health Agency of Canada has made their own “politically correct” changes to their website regarding the transmission of Ebola, or more to the point the “airborne spread among humans.”

Sometime during the last week the Public Health Agency of Canada changed its website’s content regarding Ebola transmission. Last week I published a preliminary essay on the Airborne Transmission of Ebola, and more recently comprehensive essays, all citing the Canadian PHA’s section entitled “Mode of Transmission.”

8-06-14:

“In the laboratory, infection through small-particle aerosols has been demonstrated in primates, and airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.

8-25-14:

“[A]irborne transmission has not been demonstrated between non-human primates.”

As of the reporting of a CDC whistleblower, William Thompson, issuing a statement on August 27, 2014 admitting they “omitted statistically significant information,” in a report about the MMR vaccine and it’s connection to autism, there is now conclusive evidence the CDC does, in fact, cover up information they do not want the general public to know, but with Canada now doing the same thing, it appears there is an international governmental attempt to cover up the fact that the Ebola virus is airborne.

The latest updates about Ebola read like a horror movie, with whole towns in quarantine, multiple strains detected and countries closing their borders with Ebola stricken countries, a third top doctor has died from Ebola in Sierra Leone, an Ebola cluster in Nigeria with a doctor dying and his wife falling ill, looters who attacked an Ebola clinic are now testing positive for Ebola, Doctors Without Borders is pleading for international help saying what they are seeing is “unlike anything we’ve seen in previous outbreaks,” and doctors and CDC workers who have been exposed and/or contracted the deadly disease are being brought into Germany and the United States.

The US via the CDC, and Canada via the Public Health Agency of Canada have both been busted changing their official website pages to remove any mention of airborne transmission, and the knowledge is only becoming public because of alternative media keeping track and documenting what was originally said, so how many other countries are participating in this cover up that we are not aware of?

Another important question should be, if they are covering this up, what else are they covering up that we don’t know about ….yet.

 

 

 

 


Congratulations, President Koroma, For Using Silver Bullet!

President Koroma Ejects WHO Representative for Trying to Stop Dr. Rima’s Nano Silver 10 PPM from getting to Ebola-Torn Sierra Leone. Perhaps That Means We Might Get a Fair Clinical Demonstration for Nano Silver!

Presidential bravery and courage are often in short supply in the countries of this world. Just think about what it takes for the average politician to defy the Globalist Power Structure! Well, West Africa Has A New Hero!

Congratulations to President Koroma of Sierra Leone for Standing Up to WHO and Standing Up for His Country!

Let’s give a huge round of applause and praise for the President of a nation besieged with a horrifying Ebola epidemic who listened to the science Dr. Rima presented to him and declared that he would personally welcome the first shipment of Nano Silver into his country. The President of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma, wants to protect his country from a devastating epidemic. Ebola is shredding the social fabric.

Meanwhile the FDA, CDC and WHO mislead us with the oft-repeated mantra, "There is no approved Ebola treatment." Thereby misinforming us all and condemning Ebola’s victims to a painful death.

A few hours ago President Ernest BAI Koroma unceremoniously sent the WHO representative out of the country.

The official reason for bouncing Dr. Jacob Mufunda, the WHO “Country Boss” for Sierra Leone, was according to www.Allafrica.com, that “President Ernest Bai Koroma openly expressed his disappointment at the apparent slow pace response of the international community to the Ebola crisis in the country. The President voiced his displeasure during his visits to the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) housed at the WHO Country Office… in Freetown.” Moreover, said the Sierra Leone government, “… sources within State House alleged that Dr. Mufunda has not been giving the necessary advice to the government of Sierra Leone in dealing with the Ebola outbreak.”

Our “boots on the ground” in Sierra Leone tell us that what that really means is that President Koroma was very disturbed that WHO and its international buddies were trying to shut down air travel to the country to stop the delivery of Dr. Rima’s Nano Silver 10 PPM and was incensed that he was not told about either the research or the possibility of clinical effectiveness by WHO and buddies who repeated the untruthful mantra, “there is no approved treatment or cure for Ebola” knowing full well that such a deception was condemning his people to death.

WHO struggled to take the sting out of President Koroma’s highly unusual (and very courageous) act, saying that Dr. Mufunda had been working really hard and needed a break and, besides, he was due to rotate out anyway, (Stage directions; WHO spokesperson extends tongue, puts fingers in ears and says, “So THERE!” in a loud and petulant voice)

Dr. Rima’s silver, 200 bottles of it, along with 100 tubes of Nano Silver gel, all donated by a generous Sierra Leone Imam and his caring family, has finally arrived at Freetown, been met with a military hovercraft escort, we understand, and will be presented to the Parliament before being deployed for the treatment of 100 patients in Stage I and II of the disease.

Meanwhile, in Liberia, we are told that our Clinical Demonstrations were to begin there today and we are waiting for news there, as well with the blessing of officials in the Liberian Department of Health and EPA.

So thank you, President Koroma, and thank you Imam, and thank you, gentlemen and gentle ladies of the Liberian Government, for standing up to international pressure, and for seeing through the smokescreen to the real science. And it is real science that will save lives.

Maj. Gen. Albert N. Stubblebine III

Ebola outbreak 'worse than we'd feared,' CDC chief says on visit to West Africa

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution                            

CDC Director Thomas Frieden, who is in Liberia to assess the Ebola outbreak, said today the contagion is “even worse than we’d feared.”

“This is an absolute emergency,” Frieden told WSB Radio in a phone interview this morning. “We have never seen anything on this scale with Ebola before. Unfortunately, this situation is going to get worse before it gets better. We’ve not yet turned the tide. The outbreak is ahead of our response.”

Frieden, who heads the Atlanta-based U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Liberia desperately needs to set up treatment centers across the country that can safely handle Ebola patients, giving the patients a chance to survive and also keeping them out of the community, where they can spread the virus to others.

“We’ve seen patients with Ebola with nowhere to go, an increasing number of corpses put onto the street,” Frieden said. “A whole system of picking up and cremating corpses has had to be developed.”

Cremation, which was not culturally acceptable in Liberia before the outbreak, is now widespread practice, the CDC chief said.

The death toll in Liberia and neighboring Guinea and Sierra Leone now stands at 1,427, the World Health Organization said, with total infections of about 2,600 since the outbreak was identified in March.

The Associated Press reported today that two more cases of Ebola infection have been identified in Nigeria.

“The numbers just keep going up, and the need for a global emergency response is enormous,” Frieden told WSB.

Two American charity workers who were flown from Liberia to Atlanta for treatment of Ebola infection at Emory University Hospital were released last week and do not pose a threat to public health, their doctors said. Dr. Kent Brantly, the second of the two to be discharged, noted upon his release that his fight against the disease is at an end, but the real fight, in West Africa, is just beginning.

Frieden, in his WSB Radio interview, warned that failure to control the outbreak could be catastrophic.

“This isn’t just a risk to Liberia and West Africa,” Frieden said. “With this kind of transmission, every day it goes on, it increases the risk of spread to other countries in Africa, other countries in the region.

“The impact not just from Ebola but on the delivery of healthcare, on economies, on families and societies. It’s huge. It’s absolutely an emergency.”


Ebola Among Health Workers: More Than 240 Sick, More Than 120 Dead

By Michael Snyder, on August 25th, 2014 

Ebola ScareIf hundreds of doctors and nurses are becoming infected with Ebola, what chance is the general public going to have?  This is not just a question that many of us are asking.  As you will see below, this is a question that the World Health Organization is asking.  When dozens of health workers started getting Ebola, nobody could explain how it was happening.  More precautions were taken and health workers were even more careful than before.  Then the number of sick health workers rose to 170.  Even more measures were taken to keep doctors and nurses from getting the disease, but now just a couple of weeks later we have learned that a total of 240 health workers have contracted the virus and more than 120 of them have died.  Overall, more than 2,600 people have been infected with Ebola since this outbreak began and more than 1,400 people have died.  This virus continues to spread at an exponential rate, and now we have learned that there are confirmed cases of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  When are people in the western world going to wake up and start taking this disease seriously?

The mainstream media has told us over and over again that Ebola "does not spread easily" and that we have nothing to be concerned about in the United States and Europe.

But if that is true, then how in the world have hundreds of doctors and nurses gotten sick?  They go to extraordinary lengths to avoid getting the virus.  The following is from an official World Health Organization statement that was released on Monday...

The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in west Africa is unprecedented in many ways, including the high proportion of doctors, nurses, and other health care workers who have been infected.

To date, more than 240 health care workers have developed the disease in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, and more than 120 have died.

During past outbreaks, a few health workers have contracted the virus.  But once the virus was identified and proper safety measures were put into place, "cases among medical staff dropped dramatically".  Unfortunately, the WHO says that this outbreak is "different" and the virus continues to spread among medical personnel...

In the past, some Ebola outbreaks became visible only after transmission was amplified in a health care setting and doctors and nurses fell ill. However, once the Ebola virus was identified and proper protective measures were put in place, cases among medical staff dropped dramatically.

Moreover, many of the most recent Ebola outbreaks have occurred in remote areas, in a part of Africa that is more familiar with this disease, and with chains of transmission that were easier to track and break.

The current outbreak is different. Capital cities as well as remote rural areas are affected, vastly increasing opportunities for undiagnosed cases to have contact with hospital staff. Neither doctors nor the public are familiar with the disease. Intense fear rules entire villages and cities.

Needless to say, the fact that so many doctors and nurses are getting sick has created a tremendous amount of panic in areas of Africa were Ebola is spreading.  Here is more from the WHO statement...

The fact that so many medical staff have developed the disease increases the level of anxiety: if doctors and nurses are getting infected, what chance does the general public have? In some areas, hospitals are regarded as incubators of infection and are shunned by patients with any kind of ailment, again reducing access to general health care.

The loss of so many doctors and nurses has made it difficult for WHO to secure support from sufficient numbers of foreign medical staff.

I think that the WHO has brought up a legitimate question.

If hundreds of doctors and nurses are getting the virus even after using protective equipment, what chance is the general public going to have?

Of course one of the big problems is the misinformation that is being spread through the mainstream media.  We have been told over and over that Ebola can only be spread "through direct contact with infected body fluids", but scientific studies have shown that this is simply not accurate.  Dr. Ronald R. Cherry believes that this bad information could be contributing to the spread of Ebola among medical personnel...

We know that airborne transmission of Ebola occurs from pigs to monkeys in experimental settings. We also know that healthcare workers like Dr. Kent Brantly are contracting Ebola in West Africa despite CDC-level barrier protection measures against physical contact with the bodies and body fluids of Ebola victims, so it only makes sense to conclude that some -- possibly many -- of these doctors, nurses, and ancillary healthcare workers are being infected via airborne transmission. It makes perfect sense that sick humans, as they vomit, have diarrhea, cough, and expectorate sputum, and as medical procedures are performed on them, have the ability to shed infectious Ebola particles into the air at a similar or higher level compared to Sus scrofa (wild boar) in the pig-to-monkey study.

There had been hope that a "miracle drug" known as ZMapp could be used to save the lives of at least some of these doctors and nurses, but there is a problem.  It turns out that some of the people that have gotten this drug have died anyway.  The following is from a news report about one of these individuals...

A Liberian doctor treated with experimental American anti-Ebola serum ZMapp has died, a minister in the west African nation said on Monday.

Abraham Borbor had been improving but died on Sunday night, Liberian Information Minister Lewis Brown told AFP.

“He was showing signs of progress but he finally died. The government regrets this loss and extends its condolences to the bereaved family,” Brown said.

Meanwhile, Ebola continues to spread.  As I mentioned above, cases of the disease have now been confirmed in Congo.  Not only that, it turns out that two different strains of Ebola were discovered by the medical tests...

Numbi said that one of the two cases that tested positive was for the Sudanese strain of the disease, while the other was a mixture between the Sudanese and the Zaire strain -- the most lethal variety. The outbreak in West Africa that has killed at least 1,427 people in West Africa since March is the Zaire strain.

So now we have multiple strains of Ebola being spread around out there.

And the truth of the matter is that even the authorities admit that they have absolutely no idea how many people actually have Ebola.  As CNN recently reported, the WHO says that the official numbers "vastly underestimate" the scope of this pandemic...

“The outbreak is expected to continue for some time,” the WHO said in a statement Thursday. “Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak.”

We could potentially be on the verge of the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen.

But in the western world there is very little concern about this disease right now.  Most people seem to believe that it poses absolutely no threat to those of us living in the United States and Europe.

Hopefully they are right.

But what if they aren't?


“TRIPLE RED ALERT:” Pay Attention to What Lies Ahead in the Global Ebola Outbreak & Planned Population Reductions by Pandemics & Forced Immunizations

BNOsq24 August 2014: CRITICAL UPDATE: Breathe No Evil Author Steve Quayle & “Dr. S., MD” Monday on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report -

You will not hear this on the news or from your family doctor, but certain medication and medical equipment is in short supply. Saline and other intravenous (IV) solutions, certain anesthesia and anesthesia related drugs, morphine, and other critical life-sustaining drugs are becoming difficult to get, causing various “non-critical” surgeries in various areas of North America (and globally) to be postponed. There is a reason for this. So too is there a reason behind the recent Ebola outbreak.

The global Ebola outbreak is just one of the many pandemics written some 20 years ago by Steve Quayle in his book, Breathe No Evil. Easily ahead of his time by two decades, Mr. Quayle also laid out the structure and ramifications that are now in place for genocide and mass population reduction. Today, the current and specific focus is on the burgeoning Ebola outbreak, and what this particular outbreak portends. It might not be as obvious as we are being led to believe.

Considering the act of population reduction and genocide that most, if not all globalists have in their plans for a new world order, we need to look at a number of seemingly disparate situations as pieces of a larger agenda. For example, does it make sense to leave a wide open border to our south given the level of threats we purportedly face from terrorists to communicable diseases? Don’t listen to the mainstream media, but think for yourselves! Does it make sense? It does, perhaps, in the larger picture of destroying and restructuring the United States, making it part of a North American Union due to the ramifications of the disease, stress on our medical system, our social structure, and in many other areas.

Join Steve Quayle and “Dr.S.,” a medical doctor with updated inside knowledge of the ramifications of a pandemic outbreak of mutagenic viruses and forced, untested immunizations being planned on the citizens of America on the Monday edition of The Hagmann & Hagmann Report. “Dr. S.,” whose full name and stellar bona fides are known to us but desires a level of anonymity with the public, describes what is currently taking place as a “triple red alert” that will spell the death for millions, regardless of where you live. He intends to tell it like it is and will “pull no punches” in this broadcast, giving us all the inside information we will need to make critical life-and-death decisions. He will provide important information about areas of exposure that most people would not even consider, and along with the “bad news,” provide the critical information we need to protect ourselves that we must initiate immediately – while we still have the opportunity.

Lest you tend to believe that this is unsubstantiated hype, consider the first “rule” inscribed on the Georgia Guidestones: “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” Obviously, there is a lot of culling of humanity that must be accomplished by the global elite to bring the world’s population to such a level. The infrastructure for population reduction and mass genocide is already in place. Learn what is being done, and equally important, what YOU must do to keep you and your family safe.

Airborne Transmission of Ebola

By Ronald R. Cherry, MD

The public has been misinformed regarding human-to-human transmission of Ebola. Assurances that Ebola can be transmitted only through direct contact with bodily fluids need to be seriously scrutinized in the wake of the West Africa outbreak.

The Canadian Health Department states that airborne transmission of Ebola is strongly suspected and the CDC admits that Ebola can be transmitted in situations where there is no physical contact between people, i.e.: via direct airborne inhalation into the lungs or into the eyes, or via contact with airborne fomites which adhere to nearby surfaces. That helps explain why 81 doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers have died in West Africa to date. These courageous healthcare providers use careful CDC-level barrier precautions such as gowns, gloves, and head cover, but it appears they have inadequate respiratory and eye protection. Dr. Michael V. Callahan, an infectious disease specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital who has worked in Africa during Ebola outbreaks said that minimum CDC level precautions

“led to the infection of my nurses and physician co-workers who came in contact with body fluids.”

Source: ISIS Has Ebola In America – Hawk And Greg Evensen

In this new edition of Hawk’s radio show with special guest whistleblower and former police officer Greg Evensen, Greg shares more information with us about ISIS (controlled by none other than Barack Obama according to Hawk!) gained from his inside sources. Greg and Hawk warn us that ISIS now has the weaponized ebola virus, here in America!

Warning that there are no rules left, the plan that is now unfolding is an attempt by ISIS to completely disrupt whatever semblance of government is now left in the United States. Evensen joins Hawk shortly after the 1 minute 45 second mark in this bombshell show.

 


DOD: Ebola spread inhibited by Nano Silver

The Ebola outbreak is raging in West Africa. One case is already being reported all the way across the vast desert continent in Saudi Arabia. With the death toll nearing 900, most Americans disapprove of the decision to bring two infected citizens home for observation in an Atlanta hospital.

Dr. Kent Brantly and nurse Nancy Writebol both contracted Ebola while working on a medical mission to Liberia. Brantly arrived in Atlanta over the weekend, and Writebol flew here today.

Doctors injected Brantly this morning with a test serum and they’re very encouraged with his reactions to the drug. The experimental drug is called ZMaxx and it’s made by Mapp Biopharmaceutical in San Diego. The company says they produced the serum from small tobacco leaves and until now, they had only tested it on small animals.

While doctors are encouraged by the reaction to ZMaxx, the FDA and the CDC are not officially declaring any known cure for Ebola.

Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation Dr Rima Laibow claims she found a natural cure for the deadly disease and today we are asking her about Nano Silver, a natural resource she claims is the cure for Ebola.


Deadly Cocktail - Everything We Were Warned of is Happening NOW!

By Susan Duclos

Watchmen have been warning us, screaming from the rooftops, telling us about what was coming. They were mocked, called conspiracy theorists, crazy, and a whole host of other names, yet when we look around the world and what is happening in the US, we see every warning, every "theory" was accurate, and it is all coming to a head right NOW.

THE WARNINGS

We were warned of FEMA camps, pandemic scares, bio warfare with pathogens and viruses, ....  and told the endgame would be martial law in America, all planned, organized and implemented by the NWO, Luciferians, Illuminati,  global elite, whatever you want to call them.


HAPPENING NOW

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa:

The CDC describes the outbreak as "one of the largest Ebola outbreaks in history," which is "affecting four countries in West Africa: Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone." The World Health Organization reports they see "see evidence the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimates the scale of the outbreak."  WHO has also declared Ebola as a "International health emergency."

According to a study published in New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), "The results of full genetic sequencing suggest that the outbreak in Guinea isn't related to others that have occurred elsewhere in Africa." In other words, this is a new strain of Ebola. This supports the very real possibility that this was created as a bio weapon. 

Via Global Research:

We can now be extraordinarily confident that the U.S. government is lying, in key material respects, about the latest Ebola outbreak—and not just because it lies about nearly everything of political consequence. This article shows that there are compelling reasons to believe we are being told three big lies about Ebola. It also offers a simple, rational, yet disturbing, explanation that very tidily accounts for all three lies. The explanation supposes that the current Ebola outbreak consists in an act of U.S.-linked bioterror.

On August 15, 2014, it was reported by The New York Times that US hospitals are preparing for Ebola, just waiting for that first passenger that ends up in the emergency room after being in West Africa, and showing signs of Ebola. In early August reports were published about patients in the US being tested for Ebola, and more reports have surfaced as recently as August 15, 2014. Imagine how many are being "tested" that we do not know about, that have been kept under the radar.

In late July Barack Obama signed issued an executive order, via the White House website, it states the following:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 264(b) of title 42, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Amendment to Executive Order 13295. Based upon the recommendation of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Acting Surgeon General, and for the purposes set forth in section 1 of Executive Order 13295 of April 4, 2003, as amended by Executive Order 13375 of April 1, 2005, section 1 of Executive Order 13295 shall be further amended by replacing subsection (b) with the following:

"(b) Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza."

On August 8, 2014, it was reported  the head of the Center for Disease Control, Tom Frieden,  testified that the Ebola spread to the US was "inevitable." other experts say US officials are not prepared for Ebola to hit the US,  and are in fact, in denial and have prepared no contingency plans.

Former FDA official Scott Gottlieb wrote a piece in Forbes that describes some very disturbing "controversial tools," that could be applied, stating "The existing rules leave a murky and potentially intrusive scheme largely intact. The Bush era regulation laid out some spooky scenarios where people could be detained for long periods, merely on a suspicion they might have been exposed to some pathogen. And forced to submit to certain medical interventions to gain their freedom. But the existing rules in force today leave possible these same scenarios – only without any protections that could be spelled out in clear regulations."

Gottlieb continues later in the article to point out "In the presence of a suspect case of Ebola, the official CDC website details ‘Specific Laws and Regulations Governing the Control of Communicable Diseases’, under which even healthy citizens who show no symptoms of the virus could be forcibly quarantined at the behest of medical authorities. The existing regulations stipulate, "Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill."

In other words a person does not have to be sick to be detained and there are no specific time limits set within the law. 

Another doctor, who we will refer to as Dr. S,  has stated emphatically that hospitals in the US are unprepared for a massive influx of Ebola patients, specifically symptomatic ones. 

So, where would these patients be housed? Yes, here is where those FEMA camp warnings that everyone scoffed at come in. FEMA camps, which some claim number up to 800 around the country, would be utilized to house patients, infected or not, even those which now the government has the authority to "detain" for unspecified amounts of time.

Now we get to the martial law warnings we have been hearing about. People wave away those warnings, but look at the previous test runs, including but not limited to the Boston Marathon bombing aftermath, when a whole town was on lock down, people ordered to shelter in place, yet it wasn't until after they were given the green light to leave their homes that a person reported where the fugitive was hiding. 

Look at Ferguson, Missouri right now, under curfew, with the national guard called in, militarized police not only going after rioters and vandals, but actively tear gassing unarmed protesters and arresting  journalists....

Martial law is already here, being tested at different times, different situations, and some would say it is all in preparation, test runs if you will, for implementing martial law on a mass scale when people rise up, either from economic collapse or when they see their friends, neighbors or family members being "detained" for no reason.

CONCLUSION

All the warnings, added together with what anyone with eyes, anyone paying attention to the current events happening right this second, can see that slowly, insidiously, we are being led like sheep to the slaughter, prepared for a crisis of epic proportion in order to implement the final plan, the New World Order's end game.

Connect the dots people.... the picture that emerges is terrifying and real and is a deadly cocktail that is stripping everything we know and love about the US, away from us.

Defenseless: Outrage in Nigeria as government fires 16,000 doctors on strike despite Ebola crisis – death toll hits 1,145

August 2014AFRICA – The death toll from the worst ever Ebola outbreak has risen to 1, 145, the World Health Organization said on Friday, as 76 more cases were reported from August 11 to August 13, 2014. The U.N. health agency said that a total of 152 confirmed, probable, and suspected cases of the deadly hemorrhagic fever were reported from countries in West Africa, bringing the total number of cases up to 2127.
Nigeria defenseless- A death sentence? The growing spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria remains serious enough to keep the nation in an official state of emergency, with thousands concerned that the virus will spread like it has in other West African nations. In what many are calling a massive failure of optics, however, the Nigerian government has chosen to fire up to 16,000 doctors due to an unrelated medical employee strike. In a memorandum to the Nigerian Health Ministry, the Permanent Secretary for Federal Ministry of Health L.N. Awute announced that Nigeria would suspend its medical residency program and terminate the jobs of the resident doctors. The order, which cites President Goodluck Jonathan as its unilateral source, also “asked the management of all public hospitals to take necessary measures to restore full medical services in the hospitals, even without the resident doctors.” The termination follows a month of strikes by doctors of the Nigerian Medical Association, who began striking on July 1st, demanding better wages and hours. The number of doctors affected by President Jonathan’s directive, Sky News reports, is about 16,000. The Premium Times followed up the news with a response from the Nigerian government, which is currently facing significant outrage from citizens frightened of the potential of an Ebola epidemic striking a country that just lost thousands of its doctors. In a statement, the Ministry of Health noted, “For the whole of July 2014, these doctors did not work, yet government, owing to the emergency situation in our country, paid them the July salaries with allowances such as call duty allowance, teaching allowance, hazard allowance, etc., believing that this magnanimity of government would appeal to reason for NMA to call off the strike.”
The emphasis on the doctors not working appears to be in direct reaction to the criticism from those concerned about Ebola: these doctors are not being taken away from the front lines against the virus because they have not been working since before the virus entered Nigeria through Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian-American official who died in Lagos, Nigeria, shortly after landing from Liberia. Nigeria currently has eleven confirmed cases of Ebola, mostly medical workers who interacted with Sawyer. The presence of Ebola in Lagos, a city of 21 million people, has caused significant alarm among those who fear an outbreak in an urban area. While Liberia’s capital, Monrovia, has seen a high number of cases, it is the exception, with most Ebola-stricken communities in rural areas of Sierra Leone and Guinea. Al Jazeera notes that, in addition to the Nigerian Medical Association calling for an immediate reversal of Jonathan’s proposal, individual Nigerians are lashing out on social media, calling the move “death sentences in disguise,” with some even indicting the doctors for choosing to strike amid a crisis. –Breitbart

Monsanto, or Monsatan as many call them, has partnered with the Department of Defense to use a proxy third party company to develop a vaccine against Ebola. The seed money began at $1.5 million. The value of the deal could grow to an estimated $86 million dollars. The company’s name is Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TKMR) (TKM.TO), a leading developer of RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics. “TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office”.  As breaking and shocking of a news story as this has the potential to be, the real story is that this is not the most important part of the Ebola threat which has invaded the United States.

The most three evil corporations, in no particular order are Standard Oil, Goldman Sachs and Monsanto. So, has this announcement raised eyebrows? Of course it has. Everything Monsanto touches has a distinct trail of greed, corruption and influence peddling.

On last night’s broadcast of The Common Sense Show, I hosted Joe Hagmann of the Hagmann and Hagmann Report. Joe expressed the view that the real threat to our citizens may not come from the Ebola itself, but it likely would come from the resulting vaccine. In a mid-afternoon phone conversation  I had with Joe Hagmann, prior to the show, I asked him if he had heard about Monsanto being given control of the development of an Ebola vaccine with DOD seed money. Subsequently, the News Director of my show, Annie De Riso discovered that this was the case and the information was less than 48 hours old.

Will the Threat Be In the Form of Ebola Or Will It Come From the Vaccine?

Late last week, I reported the following:

A desperate search is on to find the hundreds of passengers who flew on the same jets as Sawyer (i.e. Patient Zero). A total of 59 passengers and crew are estimated to have come into contact with Sawyer and effort is being made to track each individual down. There is an inherent problem with this “track down.  Presumably, some of the passengers connected to other flights, which known to be the case. Let’s just say for the sake of argument that only 20 people, a low estimate given the nature of the airports that Sawyer was traveling in, were connecting to other flights, the spread of the virus would quickly expand beyond any possibility of containment because in less than a half a day, nearly a half a million people would be potentially exposed. Within a matter of a couple of hours, Sawyer’s infected fellow travelers would each have made contact with 200 other passengers and crew. Hours later, these flights would land and these people would go home to the friends, families and coworkers across several continents”.

I believe that as many have reported in the past 48 hours, Ebola has broken any possibility of containment and has now been unleashed on every continent. Many of my medical sources are telling me that modern medicine really does not know what the potential is for Ebola to spread from a significant, regionalized threat to a threat to become a global pandemic which would be as bad or worse than the 1918 Spanish Flu.

On last night’s show, Joe Hagmann expressed the opinion that perhaps the threat would be from the Ebola but from the vaccine. However, I am aware of 100,000 West Africans that are coming into this country, primarily acting as drug couriers. These men come from the seven country region in West Africa where the Ebola outbreak is raging out of control. And course, as I have stated many times, this has led even prominent physicians (e.g. Dr. Jane Orient) to state that it is not a matter of if, but when Ebola is spread throughout America and the world.

The UN Has Been Preparing to Assist with Health Crisis

Since the knowledge that UN military vehicles were being transported around the United States back in May, I have developed two sources from the DEA. One source is newly retired and maintains frequent contact with me. The other source has gone dark for the past 10 days and the covert communication method we were to use does is not working.

At the moment that I was signing off of my show last night, the retired DEA agent called me. He told me that the friendly debate over Ebola that I was having with Joe Hagmann was a meaningless conversation. He said that one of the five strains of Ebola has been weaponized and was developed at Ft. Detrick. He further stated, that this strain of Ebola was released 8 months ago.  What he described is the classic Hegelian Dialectic in which the problem is created and a desired solution is enacted. Joe Hagmann may have been correct  in that the goal is to develop a vaccine. That is where the money is and that is where the future power over the people lies.

History Speaks Will America Listen?

During the H1n1 scare of a few years ago, we know that law enforcement officials in several states practiced a DUI roadblock kind of scenario in states in which they were equipped with mock vaccine testing equipment to tell whether someone, or not, had been given the new vaccine against the virus. The roadblock consisted of a large van for processing, a couple of buses and chase cars on the flanks to run down people who tried to avoid the checkpoint. According to my well-placed sources in Colorado, this was rehearsed over and over. These law enforcement officers were told that their families would be collected by DHS and protected in isolation against the spread of the pathogen and any resulting rioting. Former and highly decorated State Trooper from Kansas, Greg Evensen, stated on my show that these families would be not held for safekeeping, they were to be held hostage to force the law enforcement officials to do the bidding of the powers that be.

The bidding that Greg Evensen was speaking of was the fact that if you did not demonstrate that you had the vaccine, you would be given two choices, immediate injection with the vaccine or your car would be impounded and you would be sent to a medical FEMA camp by one of the busses present at the scene.

At one point during the H1N1 scare, I thought the public’s reaction to forced vaccinations, which began in many hospitals, forced the government to abandon its plans to launch the program. In the present time, I think that this was a beta test designed to put the mechanisms into place and to condition the public that this will someday happen.

I am presently traveling and I contacted two of my sources in law enforcement to ask them if they had done any drills with regard to the outbreak of Ebola. I was told that they had not. However, one source stated that a recent DHS memo reminded the officials that they were to remain current on their containment and interdiction procedures with regard to any virulent outbreaks.

The sum total of what we are looking is this. The short-term goal according to my DEA source is to make money off of the vaccine. The long-term goal is to begin to lockdown the country by using fear and the natural course of Ebola spreading. He stated that once people see communities being exposed, we will accept any restriction including mandatory vaccinations. I told him that no vaccine could be developed, tested and effectively used in a short time. He responded by stating that that the public is too stupid to know the difference. He has a point because that was what the government had done with the vaccine related to the H1N1 scare.

I have real concerns over the safety of such a vaccine. First, there is the Monsanto reputation issue in which they repeatedly proven that they cannot be trusted. Second, producing a vaccine in such a short amount of time is fraught with problems. Third, the use of the infamous adjuvants will no doubt resurface. During the H1N1 scare, it is was discovered that the vaccine was using MF59 and Squaylene in the vaccine to increase the volume of an existing batch. The adjuvants were linked to serious central nervous system damage.

There is another concern that I have as well. In December of 2012, I reported that I had a contact from a FEMA employee who retired and “bugged out” to a communal safe haven with like minded officials from DHS and FEMA. His primary fear was the spread of a pandemic which he expected to happen within two years. His expertise was in counter-bioterrorism. You can read these stories at this link.

In San Diego, in October  31, 2012, DHS ran a Zombie preparedness drill and of all things the drill centered around shooting “crazed zombies”. I was told that the new weaponized strain temporarily turns people into people who act like they are on PCP.  The drill was participated in by Navy special forces and the Marines. The drill was later repeated in Idaho by the same entities. And let’s not forget that the homeless are being collected across the country and forcibly detained in makeshift shelters. I would submit that this is another dry run.

Conclusion

What does it all mean? The trend curve of information is pointing to the fact that Ebola is spreading but that the greater threat to the most people will not come from the Ebola but for the treatment of Ebola.  Monsanto needs to watched very carefully because my DEA source states that  vaccine will be on the market by year’s end.

HealthMap Advanced Social Warning System Detects Ebola Outbreak Might Already be in America

healthwarningmapebola

BOSTON, Mass. (INTELLIHUB) — An electronic information gathering and mapping system similar to the WebBot actually spotted the “hemorrhagic fever” (Ebola) outbreak in West Africa 9-days before it hit the press following the WHO’s announcement.

According to the Associated Press:

HealthMap 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.

However, shockingly, as of Sunday, the HealthMap system has spotted at least 75 potential triggers in the United States along with potentials in Canada as well as Mexico. At this time it has not been announced that Ebola is spreading in the U.S., but predictive models show that we may be less than 9-days away from some type of official announcement based on current data.

Once the announcement is made, under World Health Organization recommendation, U.S. officials will then request the activation of all emergency preparedness and mass fatalities response plans nationwide as we will then, at that point, be in full-blown pandemic level 6 martial law.

Ebola Outbreak "Moving Faster" Than Reported Cases Suggest, May Be Far Worse WHO Warns

The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa continues to escalate, with 1975 cases and 1069 deaths reported from Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, according to the WHO, but warns that "there is evidence that the number of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak." While Nigeria remains 'contained' for now, Ireland now has its first suspected case of Ebola according to The Journal. What is perhaps most concerning is Doctors Without Borders warn the ebola outbreak is "moving faster" than they can handle.

The WHO warns... 

Elsewhere, the outbreak is expected to continue for some time. WHO’s operational response plan extends over the next several months. Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak.

As The Journal reports,

THE HSE HAS said today that it has not been notified of any official suspected case of Ebola in a Dublin hospital – but that it could not rule out that the virus was being looked at earlier this morning as one of several possibilities for a patient being treated there.

TheJournal.ie has confirmed with hospital sources this morning that a patient who had recently travelled abroad was being investigated as having a suspected virus. He is suffering from flu-like symptoms and consultants had been looking at Ebola as one of the possibilities.

As Bloomberg notes, 

aid groups such as Doctors Without Borders, with almost 700 workers in the affected region, have criticized the WHO and governments including the U.S. for failing to recognize the devastation being caused since January by the spread of the deadly virus. It’s the first time Ebola has appeared in West Africa.

Interestingly Fujifilm says it has over 20,000 doses of potential Ebola vaccine...

Co. produced drug when it filed data to seek approval to treat flu in Japan, spokesman Takao Aoki says by telephone today.

Co. has capability to mass-produce drug at factory in Toyama prefecture in Japan: Fujifilm

Co. told World Health Organization it can supply drug if requested: Fujifilm

Bloomberg Roundup: • Latest WHO death toll: 1,069 • Liberia minister warns of price hikes on medicated soap, chlorine, chloride • Ireland may have first suspected Ebola case, Journal.ie reports • NOTE: Irish Independent says no confirmed case seen • Spread in West Africa worse than cases suggest, WHO says • Athletes from Ebola-affected regions banned from some Youth Olympic events • Togo PM denies religious leaders’ claims of Ebola in country • African air links at risk as virus ravages region • Ebola stigma increases survivors’ burden in long recovery effort


Wall Street Journal Ebola Shocker! We Could All Soon Be In Deep Trouble! More Signs Of Intentional Depopulation?

According to the newly released video report below from the Wall Street Journal, we could all soon be in deep trouble as the death toll in Africa from Ebola has been vastly UNDERestimated!

With experts now fearing this outbreak could go on for months and the World Health Organization declaring that this will only get worse, Anonymous asks in the 2nd video below if this is really the worst Ebola outbreak ever or a sick illuminati depopulation plot.

We all need to remember the countless dead scientists recently including an ebola expert who was recently killed on MH17 before discounting this ‘conspiracy theory’.


Intelligence Sources: End Of The Age Is Near! Hawk And Greg Evensen – Ebola Plan Unfolding!

Whistleblower Greg Evensen joins Hawk’s radio show to break some hot news, joining at the 2 minute 30 second mark to warn that the ‘end of the age’ is near after getting an update from two of his intelligence sources.

With some of the information in this video confirming this recent Infowars report, Evensen shares that those who seek to do us harm have gotten ahold of one of the most dangerous ‘weapons’ in history.


3,000 “Ebola Martyrs” Warned Ready To Strike America

A new report released in the Kremlin today by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) is stating that the reason(s) for President Obama’s “mysterious and unscheduled” return to the White House this weekend is due the United States facing an “apocalyptic attack” from an estimated 3,000 “Ebola Martyrs” who are already in America and warned are “ready to strike”.

According to this report, SVR intelligence analysts became aware of the attack planned by these “Ebola Martyrs” against the US from their “monitoring” of a Islamic State (IS) [also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)] terror cell operating out of the Embassy of Saudi Arabia located in Washington D.C.

In the past few weeks, this report continues, this IS terror cell has had “total freedom of movement” around Washington D.C. with no US intelligence service monitoring of them and have brazenly taken and posted photos of their: 1.) flag pinned to the White House fence [top photo left] and 2.) One of their operatives holding a letter against the backdrop of a US government building [photo 2nd left] that reads: 

“Soldiers of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria will pass from here soon,” followed by a Koran verse that reads, “and Allah is perfecting His Light even though the disbelievers hate (that).”

The underlying tweet posted with these photos further warned America: “We are in your state.  We are in your cities.  We are in your streets.”

Important to note, the SVR in this report says, is that like this new attack planned upon America, the Saudis were, likewise, “deeply responsible” for the 11 September 2001 attacks upon the US, and as recently verified by US Democratic Representative Stephen Lynch and Republican Representative Walter Jones who publicly warned the American people last December that two administrations have kept 28 pages of a 2002 report on the 9/11 so highly classified that they don’t contain redactions — just an ellipsis noting their absence.

Lynch and Jones claim that the 2002 report from Congress after the 9/11 attacks that left 3,000 Americans dead contains material that “absolutely shocked” them — and that pins the blame on Saudi Arabia for state support of the attack.

Though the Saudis deny any role in 9/11, the SVR says, the CIA in one memo reportedly found “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government officials — not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both financially and logistically.

The intelligence files cited in the 2002 report, it’s critical to note, directly implicate the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks, making 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war.

Not understandable about Obama, this SVR report further states that upon taking office in 2009, and becoming fully aware of Saudi Arabia’s act of war against the US on 9/11, he traveled to their kingdom and “bowed before their king”. [Photo 3rd left]

Even worse, this report continues, where the Bush regime had capped the number of Saudi students allowed into the US to just 10,000 a year, Obama has, since he took office, “opened the flood gates” to them to such an extent that now there are over 110,000 of them in America today.

The danger of allowing so many Saudi students into America, SVR analysts in this report say, is not only due to their involvement in 9/11 (where 15 of the alleged 19 hijackers were Saudi students), but by their sheer numbers as they are not able to be adequately monitored by any US intelligence agency.

Of these over 110,000 Saudi students now in the US, this report warns, around 8,000 of them are devout IS followers financed by the richest terror organization the world has ever known having assests of over US$2 billionall of which was financed by Saudi Arabia.

And of these 8,000 IS terror members in the US posing as Saudi students, the SVR states, nearly 3,000 have become “Ebola Martyrs” willing to die in their “mission” of infecting as many Americans as they can before their stated deadline of October.

To how these “Ebola Martyrs” were “created”, this report continues (and as we had previously reported on), was contained in the Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) report for the Ministry of Defense (MoD) this week on the ever growing Ebola virus apocalypse currently devastating a number of Western African nations and that no one has been able to explain its rapid and unprecedented dissemination.

While the World Health Organization (WHO) has today stated that official death toll from the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa is currently standing at 1,069 deaths out of 1,975 cases, it also admits that this number “could be vastly underestimated” and that beds in treatment centers are “filling up faster than they can be provided”.

Also, even though the experts at Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) [aka Doctors Without Borders] stated earlier today that this current Ebola crisis will “take six months to control”, this SVR report notes that they stated that same thing back in April when they said “we will manage to contain this outbreak in a short amount of time…” when the death toll was only 78.

As to why this Ebola outbreak has spread so fast and widely, this report chillingly states, is due to an “alliance from hell” between the IS and the West African Islamic terror group Boko Haram whose leader, Abubakar Shekau, recently praised IS for having taken over large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

Shekau, likewise, SVR analysts in this report say, is the “mastermind” for the creation of these “Ebola Martyrs” who are directly responsible for the spread of this disease in their attempts to perfect it as a biowarfare weapon against the US and EU.

And due to the “experiments” conducted by both Boko Haram and IS operatives in how best to transmit this disease, the SVR says, is what has allowed the unprecedented spread of Ebola these past months.

In just one example of these “experiments” conducted by Boko Haram and IS, this report outlines, their operatives were directly infected with the Ebola virus and then sent on “martyr missions” to other West African nations and villages where they would then withdrawal their own blood and disperse it to their “targets” at roadside cafes/restaurants by adding it to the water or other beverages people would purchase.

Specifically to be “targeted” by these Boko Haram “martyr missions”, the SVR grimly notes, were health care professionals who dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus (especially Westerners) and whose death toll to date numbers over 170 that as yet no one is able to explain.

As to why Saudi Arabia is using IS and Boko Haram to target the United States with these “Ebola Martyrs”, SVR intelligence experts in this report say, is due to the US$100 million15-acre mega-mosque due to be opened in October outside of Washington D.C. in October, and at which time it will become the largest and most striking example of Islamic architecture in the Western hemisphere.

Financed by Turkey, this report says, the ceremonial stone dedicating this mega-mosque was laid by Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan in May 2013, who was once jailed in his own country for inciting Muslims when he stated about mosques: “The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.”

Even worse this report warns, the current “cold war” in the Middle East has now taken two forms as it involves the Shiite-Sunni war being fought in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and the Gulf, as well as a parallel Sunni-Sunni conflict involving Turkey, Saudi Arabia and political Islamic forces to control and dominate the politics of Sunni Islam.

Dominating the Sunni sphere requires controlling religious interpretation, especially that relating to political systems. In this regard, the model of Islamic democracy practiced in Turkey is considered a challenge to the political realm of Saudi religious theory…and with the October opening of the mega-mosque outside of WashingtonD.C., this report says, the Obama regime has now completely aligned itself with Turkey against Saudi Arabia.

This report concludes by noting that even though the US didn’t retaliate against Saudi Arabia attacking them on 9/11, the same cannot be said now due to the simple fact that the Obama regime is filled with inexperienced and young political operatives (defined by one SVR operative as “Kidiots”) who are continuing to fail to realize how close they are to causing World War III…and when thousands of Americans start dying after dining in restaurants that have hired these Saudi student “Ebola Martyrs”, without a doubt, atomic bombs will begin to fall.

Pulitzer-prize winning writer of The Coming Plague warns, ‘you are not nearly scared enough about Ebola’

“Experimental drugs and airport screenings will do nothing to stop this plague. If Ebola hits Lagos, we’re in real trouble,” warns Pulitzer-prize winning writer of The Coming Plague, Laurie Garrett
August 2014AFRICA – Attention World: You just don’t get it. You think there are magic bullets in some rich country’s freezers that will instantly stop the relentless spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa? You think airport security guards in Los Angeles can look a traveler in the eyes and see infection, blocking that jet passenger’s entry into La-la-land? You believe novelist Dan Brown’s utterly absurd description of a World Health Organization that has a private C5-A military transport jet and disease SWAT team that can swoop into outbreaks, saving the world from contagion? Wake up, fools. What’s going on in West Africa now isn’t Brown’s silly Inferno scenario — it’s Steven Soderberg’s movie Contagion, though without a modicum of its high-tech capacity. Last week, my brilliant Council on Foreign Relations colleague John Campbell, former U.S. ambassador to Nigeria, warned that spread of the virus inside Lagos — which has a population of 22 million — would instantly transform this situation into a worldwide crisis, thanks to the chaos, size, density, and mobility of not only that city but dozens of others in the enormous, oil-rich nation. Add to the Nigerian scenario civil war, national elections, Boko Haram terrorists, and a country-wide doctors’ strike — all of which are real and current — and you have a scenario so overwrought and frightening that I could not have concocted it even when I advised screenwriter Scott Burns on his Contagion script. Inside the United States, politicians, gadflies, and much of the media are focused on wildly experimental drugs and vaccines, and equally wild notions of “keeping the virus out” by barring travelers and “screening at airports.”
Let’s be clear: Absolutely no drug or vaccine has been proven effective against the Ebola virus in human beings. To date, only one person — Dr. Kent Brantly — has apparently recovered after receiving one of the three prominent putative drugs, and there is no proof that the drug was key to his improvement. None of the potential vaccines has even undergone Phase One safety trials in humans, though at least two are scheduled to enter that stage before December of this year. And Phase One is the swiftest, easiest part of new vaccine trials — the two stages of clinical trials aimed at proving that vaccines actually work will be difficult, if not impossible, to ethically and safely execute. If one of the vaccines is ready to be used in Africa sometime in 2015, the measure will be executed without prior evidence that it can work, which in turn will require massive public education to ensure that people who receive the vaccination do not change their behaviors in ways that might put them in contract with Ebola — because they mistakenly believe they are immune to the virus. We are in for a very long haul with this extremely deadly disease — it has killed more than 50 percent of those laboratory-confirmed infections, and possibly more than 70 percent of the infected populations of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Nigeria is struggling to ensure that no secondary spread of Ebola comes from one of the people already infected by Liberian traveler Patrick Sawyer — two of whom have died so far. That effort expanded on Wednesday, when Nigerian health authorities announced that a nurse who had treated Sawyer escaped her quarantine confinement in Lagos and traveled to Enugu a city that, as of 2006, has a population of about three million. Though the nurse has not shown symptoms of the disease, the incubation time for infection, which is up to 21 days, hasn’t elapsed.
Since the Ebola outbreak began in March there have been many reports of isolated cases of the disease in travelers to other countries. None have resulted, so far, in secondary spread, establishing new epidemic focuses of the disease. As I write this, such a case is thought to have occurred Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, and another suspected case reportedly died in isolation in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, prompting the kingdom to issue special Ebola warnings for the upcoming hajj. It’s only a matter of time before one of these isolated cases spreads, possibly in a chaotic urban center far larger than the ones in which it is now claiming lives: Conakry, Guinea; Monrovia, Liberia; and Freetown, Sierra Leone. So what does “getting it” mean for understanding what we, as a global community, must now do? First of all, we must appreciate the scale of need on the ground in the three Ebola-plagued nations. While the people may pray for magic bullets, their health providers are not working in Hollywood, but rather in some of the most impoverished places on Earth. Before Ebola, these countries spent less than $100 per year per capita on healthcare. Most Americans spend more than that annually on aspirin and ibuprofen. “It’s like fighting a forest fire: leave behind one burning ember, one case undetected, and the epidemic could re-ignite,” Frieden recently told Congress. “Ending this outbreak will take time, at least three to six months in a best case scenario, but this is very far from a best case scenario.”At the same congressional hearing Dr. Frank Glover, a medical missionary who partners with SIM, a Christian missions organization, and president of SHIELD, a U.S.-based NGO in Africa, warned that Liberia had less than 200 doctors struggling to meet the health needs of 4 million people before the epidemic. “After the outbreak that number went down to about 50 doctors involved in clinical care,” said Glover. I myself have received emails from physicians in these countries, describing the complete collapse of all non-Ebola care, from unassisted deliveries to untended auto accident injuries. People aren’t just dying of the virus, but from every imaginable medical issue a system of care usually faces. –Foreign Policy

It Is Becoming Clear – We Are Not Prepared For An Ebola Pandemic

It Is Becoming Clear – We Are NOT Prepared For An Ebola Pandemic

The United States is woefully unprepared for an Ebola outbreak.  If a pandemic were to erupt, the very limited number of hospital labs and isolation units that we currently have would be rapidly overwhelmed.  Yes, we may be able to provide “state of the art care” for a handful of people, but if thousands (or millions) of Americans get the virus you can forget about it.  Our health industry is already stretched incredibly thin, and we simply do not have the resources to handle a tsunami of high risk Ebola patients.  And of course conventional medicine does not have a cure for Ebola anyway.  The “experimental drug” that is being used on the two American health professionals with the disease seems to be helping them, but even if it does turn out to be safe and even if it is approved for the general public it will still be a long time before there is ever enough of the drug for everyone.  So let us hope that we do not see a full-blown Ebola pandemic in this country.  Because if we do, we could potentially see millions of people die.

On Wednesday we learned that the global Ebola death toll has increased to 932.  As you can see from this article, cases of Ebola are now spreading at an exponential rate.  If you project how many cases we could be looking at in just a few months if Ebola keeps spreading at the same pace, it becomes quite frightening.

And it does appear that Ebola has now spread to more countries.  A man in Saudi Arabia that was being tested for Ebola has now died.  And a Liberian man has died of the Ebola virus in Morocco.

In the United States, the CDC is refusing to tell the media the locations of the people that have been tested for Ebola in this country.  But we do know that the CDC has told Time Magazine that it has received “several dozen calls” regarding “people who are ill after traveling in Africa”.

If you get Ebola, there is a very good chance that you are going to die.  The mortality rate during this current outbreak is over 50 percent.  It is a killer that is both silent and brutally efficient.

But what makes Ebola so dangerous is that you can be carrying it around for up to three weeks before you ever know that you have it.  In fact, one doctor that has been working on the front lines fighting this disease says that Ebola victims can “look quite fit and healthy and can be walking around until shortly before their deaths“.

So the person sitting next to you at work or that you walk past in the supermarket could have the virus.

You just never know.

And there is a lot of misinformation about Ebola out there right now.  There are a lot of people claiming that it “does not spread easily” and that you basically have to exchange bodily fluids with someone in order to get it.

Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the truth.  As Mike Adams of Natural News has pointed out, the Public Health Agency of Canada says that Ebola “can survive in liquid or dried material for several days“…

Even worse, Ebola is a strong survivor outside a host. Here’s what the Public Health Agency of Canada says:

SURVIVAL OUTSIDE HOST: The virus can survive in liquid or dried material for a number of days. Infectivity is found to be stable at room temperature or at 4 C for several days, and indefinitely stable at -70 C. Infectivity can be preserved by lyophilisation.

This clearly states that Ebola viruses can survive for several days on common objects such as door knobs or household surfaces. If an infected Ebola victim runs around touching such common objects after cleaning blood or mucous from his nose, another innocent victim can easily infect himself by touching the same objects and then eating some food that places the virus in his mouth.

And an Ebola study conducted back in 2012 showed that Ebola could be transmitted between pigs and monkeys that did not have physical contact with one another

When news broke that the Ebola virus had resurfaced in Uganda, investigators in Canada were making headlines of their own with research indicating the deadly virus may spread between species, through the air.

The team, comprised of researchers from the National Centre for Foreign Animal Disease, the University of Manitoba, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, observed transmission of Ebola from pigs to monkeys. They first inoculated a number of piglets with the Zaire strain of the Ebola virus. Ebola-Zaire is the deadliest strain, with mortality rates up to 90 percent. The piglets were then placed in a room with four cynomolgus macaques, a species of monkey commonly used in laboratories. The animals were separated by wire cages to prevent direct contact between the species.

Within a few days, the inoculated piglets showed clinical signs of infection indicative of Ebola infection. In pigs, Ebola generally causes respiratory illness and increased temperature. Nine days after infection, all piglets appeared to have recovered from the disease.

Within eight days of exposure, two of the four monkeys showed signs of Ebola infection. Four days later, the remaining two monkeys were sick too. It is possible that the first two monkeys infected the other two, but transmission between non-human primates has never before been observed in a lab setting.

If Ebola truly is “not something that is easily transmitted”, then how in the world have more than 100 health workers been infected so far?

Were they not being careful?

And if you think that our “advanced technology” is going to keep health workers from getting Ebola in this country, you might want to think again.

As Mike Adams pointed out in a different article, we can’t even stop the spread of “superbugs” such as MRSA in our own hospitals…

How can U.S. health authorities claim there is zero risk from Ebola patients being treated in U.S. hospitals when those same hospitals can’t control superbug infections? “Many hospitals are poorly prepared to contain any pathogen. That’s why at least 75,000 people a year die from hospital infections. If hospitals can’t stop common infections like MRSA, C. diff and VRE, they can’t handle Ebola.”

Yes, the United States has a far superior health system when compared to nations such as Liberia and Sierra Leone.

But it does have limitations.

Earlier today, I was reading something supposedly written by someone who works in a hospital laboratory.  I wanted to share three quotes that I found particularly sobering…

#1 “Even in the United States, out of all the various hospitals I have worked at, there is no hope of containing anything like this. One of the largest hospitals I worked at only had two reverse flow isolation rooms. TWO, let that sink in for a minute.”

#2 “Patients only show up to the hospital when they go symptomatic. So by the time they get there, they’ve already infected their entire family, their work group, and anyone they got within a few feet of on the way to the hospital. When they get there the ER nurses would treat it either like Flu, or Sepsis. But the whole time the patient is infecting all of them. And all of them, in turn, begin to infect everyone else in the exact same way. If this is as virulent as the WHO thinks it might be, by the time people realize what is going on, there will be more sick people than there would be beds available at every hospital in the US combined.”

#3 “So don’t expect miracles from front line hospital staff, we don’t have the tools, and we certainly do not have the manpower. Ask anyone in the medical field how much overtime they could work if they felt like it, don’t even get me started on how thinly stretched people in the industry are. Though I suppose if this does turn into something, that will become apparent very, very fast.”

There is no way in the world that our medical professionals are going to be able to handle a full-blown Ebola pandemic.

Therefore, if one does break out, you are going to need to be prepared to stay at home as much as possible.

That means that you will need enough food and supplies to last for at least a couple of months, and it could potentially be a lot longer than that.

Just think about it.  If Ebola is spreading, you certainly would not want to go to places such as grocery stores that large numbers of people circulate through every day.  But if you do not have any food, eventually you would be forced to leave your home.  And that decision could end up costing you dearly.

Hopefully this crisis will blow over and we won’t have to worry about any of this.  But if Ebola does start sweeping across America, the key will be to isolate yourself and your family as much as you can.

For now, our top officials are making it sound like we have nothing to worry about.

For example, the head of the CDC told CBS News that “we can stop it” and that the spread of the Ebola virus will probably not reach this country…

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he is confident that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa can be stopped and likely won’t reach the U.S.

“The plain fact is, we can stop it. We can stop it from spreading in hospitals and we can stop it in Africa [which] is really the source of the epidemic and where we’re surging our response so that we can control it there,” Tom Frieden said in an interview Sunday.

And Barack Obama says that Ebola is “not something that is easily transmitted” and that everything is under control…

 

Personally, I am going to file away those quotes for future reference.

Let us hope that they are right.

Let us hope that we don’t have anything to be concerned about.

But with each passing day this Ebola outbreak is getting even worse, and if it continues to grow at an exponential rate it won’t be too long before the entire world is facing an absolutely horrific health crisis.

The article It Is Becoming Clear – We Are NOT Prepared For An Ebola Pandemic published by TheSleuthJournal – Real News Without Synthetics


Ebola Apocalypse “Mysteries” Raises Biowarfare Fears

A bleak report issued today by the Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) for the Ministry of Defense (MoD) on the ever growing Ebola virus apocalypse currently devastating a number of Western African nations (and so out of control that governments there have revived a disease-fighting tactic not used in nearly a century called the “cordon sanitaire”) is warning today that the “mysterious causations” relating to the spread of this disease cannot be ruled out as being “biowarfare in nature”.

Ebola virus disease (EVD) or Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), this report says, is a disease that affects humans and primates caused by the Ebola virus and three other closely related viruses in the genus (group of related viruses) “ebolavirus”. It is a hemorrhagic fever, meaning that victims may bleed inside the body or externally, and it has one of the highest case fatality rates (death rates) of any disease, killing between 50% and 90% of victims and has an incubation period of 21 days.

From 1976, when Ebola was first identified, through 2013, this report continues, fewer than 1,000 people per year had been infected by this virus which was first isolated during outbreaks in the African nations of Zaire and Sudan.

The strain of Ebola that broke out in Zaire in 1976, FMBA experts in this report state, had one of the highest case fatality rates of any human virus ever recorded, roughly 90%, thus giving this disease its name because of its discovery on the Ebola River. [Note: Zaire is now known as the Democratic  Republic of the Congo]

In April of this year, this report says, the French-founded international humanitarian-aid non-governmental organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) [aka Doctors Without Borders] reported an unprecedented outbreak of Ebola in the African nation of Guinea…not because of the number of victims (78 had died at that point) but because the disease had traveled to various parts of the country, and which had never happened in any other prior outbreak since 1976.

MSF, however, this report continues, remained sure of their ability to stop this disease in Guinea this past spring, despite its “unprecedented” spread, with their top tropical medicine adviser, Esther Sterk, stating: “We will manage to contain this outbreak in a short amount of time…

Far from containing this outbreak though, this report grimly notes, the MSF effort to control the Ebola virus in Guinea this past spring totally failed for as yet “unknown/mysterious” reasons thus causing the leading experts of this disease to declare in Washington D.C. last week that an “apocalypse is now underway” in Western Africa.

At last weeks Washington  D.C. meeting on Ebola, this report notes, the US-based Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Director Dr. Tom Frieden stated that the number of infected and killed in this outbreak will likely “soon outnumber all other Ebola outbreaks in the past 32 years combined”.

According to the CDC, there have already been more than 1,700 suspected and confirmed cases of Ebola in West Africa, and more than 900 deaths—numbers that Dr. Frieden later called “too foggy” to be definitive.

FMBA experts in this report agree with Dr. Frieden’s assessment that the current death toll and infected rate of this Ebola outbreak is “too foggy” to be definitively known at this time, but further horrifically acknowledge that the estimates of Ken Isaacs, the vice president of Program and Government Relations for the international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, that these current numbers “represent just 25 to 50 percent of what is happening” may be closer to being accurate.

Most “gravely alarming” about these Ebola deaths, this report continues, are that they include over 170 health care workers experienced with this disease, all of whom were “dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus”.

Western news reports have, likewise, noticed the unprecedented infection rates and deaths of these highly trained expert Ebola healthcare workers too, and as exampled by the Zerohedge News Service in their article titled “The One Question About Ebola That Nobody Can Seem To Answer” and which, in part, states:

“That is the one question about Ebola that nobody can seem to answer.  The World Health Organization is reporting this as a fact, but no explanation is given as to why this is happening.  We are just assured that Ebola “is not airborne” and that getting infected “requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person”. 

I could understand a handful of “mistakes” by health workers, but this is unlike anything that we have ever seen in the history of infectious diseases.  These health workers take extraordinary precautions to keep from getting the virus.  If it is spreading so easily to them, what chance is the general population going to have?”

As one explanation as to why these over 170 expert health workers have died, this report further warns, can be found in the statements made last week by Doctor-Scientist Vladimir Nikiforov, (Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases at the FMBA’s Institution of Advanced Training) who at a press conference in Moscow last week acknowledged that this Ebola virus may have been turned into a bioweapon.

According to Dr. Nikiforov, “Actually, this virus can be used in the form of a spray, which can lead to very big trouble. Biological weapons are nothing like a nuclear bomb… In order to make a nuclear bomb, one would require a uranium mine, a nuclear power plant and so on. But biological weapons are made in a small laboratory, which can be easily camouflaged. You know that there are rogue states. And here's the thing, I can’t guarantee that some country isn’t preparing something of the kind”.

Dr. Nikiforov’s words were, also, grimly echoed last week by his counterpart from CambridgeUniversity, Dr. Peter Walsh, who warned the UK public that a terrorist could use the Ebola virus to create a dirty bomb.  The biological anthropologist told the Sun newspaper that he fears “large number of horrific deaths” if “a group manages to harness the virus as a power then explodes it as a bomb in a highly populated public area”.

To which “rogue state” would desire to weaponize the Ebola virus this FMBA report doesn’t say. 

However, a MoD appendix to this report, which “grades” the nations able to make such an “apocalyptic weapon” from the Ebola virus and in the past has actually used them, the United States comes out on top as the “most likely” to not only be behind such an effort, but may actually have planned this outbreak to begin with.

As “mini war zones” continue to erupt in the US, this MoD appendix says, the police in that nation have been transformed from protecting the public into their protecting government from the public, with the worst offenders being those who “don't shape up and work slave-type  jobs for unlivable wages” consigned to their vast gulag of prisons or outright public execution.

Decades of social decay in the US, the MoD says, has created a situation in that nation that has reached the point where the thin veneer of civilization that they all take for granted every single day is wearing dangerously thin, and which a “timely” apocalyptic plague would help cure for their elite classes.

And to if the morality of these US elite classes would allow such a barbaric act to occur using a weaponized Ebola virus, this MoD appendix grimly concludes, one need look no further than Cristina Richie, of Boston College’s Department of Theology who argues for the genocide of babies (whom she labels “carbon legacies”) as a means of fighting climate change.

And in Richie’s own words: “A carbon footprint is the aggregate of resource use and carbon emissions over a person’s life. A carbon legacy occurs when a person chooses to procreate. All people have carbon footprints; only people with biological children have carbon legacies.

Through the use of ARTs (artificial reproductive technologies) multiple children are born, adding to worldwide carbon emissions. This is a burden on the already over-taxed ecosystem to support new beings who might not have existed without medical intervention. It is therefore the obligation of environmental policymakers, the ethical and medical communities, and even society to carefully weigh the interests of our shared planet with a business that intentionally creates more humans when we must reduce our carbon impact.”

And more simply put…in a nation that has one of their top religious universities professors arguing for the genocide of babies to “prevent” climate change…could anyone really say they wouldn’t also exterminate as many “useless eaters” as they could and knew they could get by with it?

The Ebola Crisis Just Went From Bad to Worse

ebolaUnder the category of “I told you so”, a political contact, Jatto Abdulqudir, of who I dubbed Patient Zero, Patrick Sawyer, has died. I had previously expressed the fear that Sawyer’s boarding of two airplanes with multiple connecting flights raised the likelihood that hundreds of thousands would be exposed on the same day to the Ebola virus (www.twtitter.com/hniman).

This one fact represents an emerging picture which serves to demonstrate that the Ebola containment efforts are failing miserably and we are in the beginning of an emerging pandemic. Further, this article will make it clear that health officials ranging from the World Health Organization to the CDC are negligent in their duty to protect the public in the midst of this Ebola outbreak.

America’s Future Amidst An Ebola Outbreak

ebola burying dead bodiesSince the worst Ebola outbreak in history first emerged in March in West Africa, 1,013 have died. Among the dead are 81 of 170 heath care workers who have been infected. These statistics are the latest figures according to statistics just released by the World Health Organization. Approximately 8% of Ebola’s victims, in West Africa, are medical personnel who were tasked with the treatment of the virus. The ratio of medical personnel to the general population who died from Ebola is astronomical and a cause for extreme alarm.

Some will say that the seven West Africa nations are made up of third world countries and subsequently, their quarantine and containment procedures are primitive and this accounts for the high Ebola transmission rate to medical personnel. However, among the infected health care workers are two Americans doctors whose knowledge is not primitive and they should have been well trained on proper quarantine and containment procedures. The high infection ratio of dead patients to dead medical personnel is alarming beyond words and nobody is talking about this in the mainstream media.

The high rates of medical personnel contracting Ebola has sent a shockwave of panic through West Africa as several of Sierra Leone’s frightened nurses have walked off the job and the medical units fighting Ebola have been profoundly crippled.

In applying the lens of common sense, we should be asking “When a healthcare worker who gets sick and dies, won’t that lead to even more fear on the part of other healthcare workers and their survival instincts takeover and walk off the job? Why would America be any different when an Ebola outbreak occurs in this country”?

Medical Ethics In the Treatment of Ebola Are Nonexistent

The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that it is perfectly “ethical” for unapproved and largely untested vaccines to be used in the treatment of Ebola. If WHO is correct, then why are U.S. taxpayers paying out billions of dollars to support the FDA and the CDC and their “safety” testing procedures?

Recently, I wrote an article which stated that it was becoming my professional opinion that we had more to fear from the new generation of hastily prepared vaccines than we did from the Ebola itself. That fear is becoming realized with the recent WHO announcement that essentially is telling the public that all safety protocols are now being ignored with regard to the release of these voodoo vaccines brought to you be Monsanto (Texmira) and GSK.

If we lift the covers up and take a peek, it will become evident that the real goal in this crisis is to maximize profits realized from vaccines and if the new WHO vaccine policies are willing to put lives at risk in Africa with the use of untested vaccines, then why should America be any different when it is our turn? The public should also be mindful that there is a financial incentive to make the vaccines mandatory in the near future.

Again, I want to remind the readers that various law enforcement agencies, through mock drills, practiced administering mandatory vaccines during the H1N1 scare five years ago. Previously, I had reported the following with regard to vaccines, law enforcement and what probably lies in our future.

History Speaks Will America Listen?

roadblocksDuring the H1n1 scare of a few years ago, we know that law enforcement officials in several states practiced a DUI roadblock kind of scenario in several states in which they were equipped with mock vaccine testing equipment to tell whether someone, or not, had been given the new vaccine against the virus. The roadblock consisted a large van for processing, a couple of buses and chase cars on the flanks to run down people who tried to avoid the checkpoint. According to my well-placed sources in Colorado, this was rehearsed over and over. These law enforcement officers were told that their families would be collected by DHS and protected in isolation against the spread of the pathogen and any resulting rioting. A highly decorated State Trooper from Kansas, Greg Evensen (Ret.), stated on my show that these families would be not held for safekeeping, they were to be held hostage to force the law enforcement officials to do the bidding of the powers that be.

The bidding that Greg Evensen was speaking of was the fact that if you did not demonstrate that you had the vaccine, you would be given two choices, immediate injection with the vaccine or your car would be impounded and you would be sent to a medical FEMA camp by one of the busses present at the scene.

At one point during the H1N1 scare, I thought the public’s reaction to forced vaccinations, which began in many hospitals, forced the government to abandon its plans to launch the program. In the present time, I think that this was a beta test designed to put the mechanisms into place and to condition the public that this will someday happen.

I recently contacted two of my sources in law enforcement, who beta tested the H1N1 vaccine roadblocks, to ask them if they had done any drills with regard to the outbreak of Ebola. I was told that they had not. However, one source stated that a recent DHS memo reminded the officials that they were to remain current on their containment and interdiction procedures with regard to any virulent outbreaks and the need to subsequently vaccinate the public in order to prevent the further spread of a pathogen.

vaccine 4

The sum total of what we are looking is this. The short-term goal according to my DEA source is to make money off of the vaccine. The emerging long-term goal appears to be the lockdown (i.e. martial law) the country by using fear and the natural course of Ebola spreading.

Rebecca Scott

Rebecca Scott

Let’s not forget about the very recent case of Rebecca Scott who was forcibly discharged, under Obamacare rules, while she awaited to find out how virulent her strain of TB was. Her discharge not only put Scott at risk, but it exposed anyone who would come into contact with her. Does anyone really believe that this provision of new healthcare system will be magically suspended in the face of an Ebola crisis?

Given the incubation period for Ebola, we could be weeks, possibly months away from realizing these same scenarios that the world is witnessing in places like Sierra Leone.


How Does An Ebola Pandemic Differ To Other Potential Pandemics?

terrorism-section-content-biological-threats-1-3-0-0The word pandemic strikes fear into the heart of many, particularly those who fear disease more than any of the other issues that could quite easily change our way of life forever. A pandemic is simply a global epidemic of a given disease, the word pandemic in itself does not denote the severity of the disease, or the impacts it will have on our lives. Ebola is a terrible disease, one as yet that has no cure…the same could be said of influenza but that does not seem to evoke nearly as much terror as the word Ebola, particularly when the word Zaire is tacked onto the end of it. Ebola Zaire is the most lethal of the five currently known strains of Ebola virus.

I wrote an article the other day saying that ‘This winters flu season was going to be the most dangerous of your life’. Would I have written the article if we were facing a flu pandemic? Yes, but with a different approach. As I explained in the article Ebola first presents with the symptoms of a heavy cold or a bout of flu coming on, and it’s that that will make this winter so dangerous if it continues to spread, in the initial stages you can’t tell them apart and I have no doubt in my mind that not everyone who has flu will be tested for Ebola and that gives rise to the disease slipping through the cracks and getting passed on repeatedly.

That is how pandemics start.

If, and I pray it does not, but if Ebola does continue to spread then it will present us with a couple of problems that an influenza pandemic would not.

Any pandemic that results in mass illness and death quickly overwhelms heath care systems and causes problems with body disposal. This is where Ebola outstrips influenza on the dangerous scale. Bodies infected with Ebola remain infectious, they need to be cremated as soon as possible and in an ideal world they would be cremated where they die…but the world is not ideal. There are numerous cases of people contracting Ebola from handling the corpses of their relatives. In addition Ebola stays in the system of recovering patients for up to SEVEN weeks, and during that time care has to be taken to make sure that no further spread occurs.

Both Ebola and Influenza have the potential to kill millions of people across the globe and both have the potential to alter our lifestyle in many ways that people rarely stop to think about. Many people worry about staying at home for an extended period, either because they chose to, or because they are made too by the government in an attempt to halt the spread of disease. Diseases are not job specific. In a serious pandemic there would be little reason for you to venture out. The chances are the stores would be closed, emptied of goods as soon as people realised there was a major problem. With delivery drivers and warehouse staff off work there would be no chance of replenishment…even if the store staff were there to open up, which they won’t be.

Food production will also be affected as farmers and their staff are hit with whatever is going around. Unless the electricity supply in your area is totally automated, as with the homes supplied with hydro electric power by the Hoover dam, then you can expect at a minimum, power outages. At some point, if the situation is severe enough, the power will stay off.

Same with the water supply. Water treatment plants need people to keep them ticking over.

Garbage will lie in the streets uncollected.

Medical services will have crashed under the strain as their own staff fall victim to whatever it is that has caused the pandemic.

Bodies will remain unburied/uncremated until individuals start dealing the bodies of their own loved ones.

With little medical help available secondary diseases will start emerging. Small pockets of cases at first before a spread to the general community.

Those living in areas where there are predators such as bears, alligators etc will start seeing more of these animals in areas outside of their normal range. They will be attracted by the stench and the hope of an easy meal.

Looting will be the norm amongst those who failed to prepare and are now out of food and who are well enough to go out and take from others.

In 1918, at the start of the pandemic that some experts say killed 50 million people worldwide the population of the planet was 1.6 billion people. The population today is around 7 billion people, but it would be wrong to automatically assume that we would lose less people due to medical advances. Back in 1918 flying was a rare occurrance. The first commercial flight, just 23 minutes long took place just four years before the pandemic in 1914. The first international commercial flight carrying fee paying passengers rather than cargo was on July 15th 1919 from Folkestone, UK to Ghent in Belgium. If 50 million deaths occurred at a time when international travel was either overland or by ship, therefore limiting the number of people alive on arrival to pass on the disease. Air travel has altered that dynamic. Many sources estimate that the total number of contacts, and contacts of contacts of Patrick Sawyer the American who died of Ebola last week was 30,000. If I am honest that seems high, but according to the source that’s the figure that has been decided on by the UK government at a meeting last week. You can read more about that here.

As an aside the figure of 1.86 infections per patient is being bandied around. That is each infected person passes the infection on to 1.86 other individuals on average. That might be a little out of date. At least four confirmed cases of Ebola in Nigeria have been traced to direct contact with Patrick Sawyer and health officials are investigating several more. Air travel not only hastens the speed with which a disease can travel the globe, but it massively increases the number of contacts a person may make, both on the aircraft and in the airports they transit through. It’s obvious where the problem lies…many hundreds of the people both on the aircraft and at the airports are also travelling on to other places. This makes tracing contacts, and the contacts of contacts a logistical nightmare, and it’s how governments come up with such high numbers. Although novel strains of flu do throw us a curve ball occasionally many people will have been exposed to similar strains of the virus before. This is why H1N1 didn’t cause the deaths that experts feared it would. Millions of people had residual immunity from relatives further back in their bloodline that had survived the 1918-1920 pandemic, which genetically shared some characteristics with H1N1.

With Ebola Zaire there is no residual immunity, there is no immunity of any kind as so few people have had the disease. If Ebola does escape Africa, and if, as with Patrick Sawyer, the transmission rate is climbing, God only knows what the outcome will be.

The One Question About Ebola That Nobody Can Seem To Answer

Questions - Public DomainHow in the world is it possible that more than 170 health workers have been infected by the Ebola virus? That is the one question about Ebola that nobody can seem to answer. The World Health Organization is reporting this as a fact, but no explanation is given as to why this is happening. We are just assured that Ebola “is not airborne” and that getting infected “requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person”. If this is true, then how have more than 170 health workers caught the disease? These workers are dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus. So how is this happening? I could understand a handful of “mistakes” by health workers, but this is unlike anything that we have ever seen in the history of infectious diseases. These health workers take extraordinary precautions to keep from getting the virus. If it is spreading so easily to them, what chance is the general population going to have?

Overall, more than 1,700 people have been officially infected and more than 900 people have officially died so far.  But an official from Samaritan’s Purse says that the real numbers are probably far, far higher

Ken Isaacs, the vice president of Program and Government Relations for Samaritan’s Purse, painted an even bleaker picture. According to the World Health Organization, West Africa has counted 1,711 diagnoses and 932 deaths, already, which could represent only a small fraction of the true number. “We believe that these numbers represent just 25 to 50 percent of what is happening,” said Isaacs.

In a six-hour meeting with the president of Liberia last week, Isaacs said workers from Samaritan’s Purse and SIM watched as the “somber” officials explained the gravity of the situation in their countries, where hundreds lie dead in the streets. “It has an atmosphere of apocalypse,” Isaacs said of the Liberia Ministry of Health’s status updates. “Bodies lying in the street…gangs threatening to burn down hospitals. I believe this disease has the potential to be a national security risk for many nations. Our response has been a failure.” Isaacs says that the epidemic is inciting panic worldwide that, in his opinion, may soon be warranted. “We have to fight it now here or we’re going to have to fight it somewhere else.”

In an official statement released on Monday, the World Health Organization even admitted that some potential Ebola patients “are being turned away”…

The recent surge in the number of cases has stretched all capacities to the breaking point. Supplies of personal protective equipment and disinfectants are inadequate. The outbreak continues to outstrip diagnostic capacity, delaying the confirmation or exclusion of cases and impeding contact tracing.

Some treatment facilities are overflowing; all beds are occupied and patients are being turned away.

Like I have said before, this has the potential to become the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen.

Up until this point, the outbreak has been primarily limited to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.

But now it is starting to pop up in more countries around Africa.

For example, the number of confirmed cases in Nigeria has reached ten…

Nigeria on Monday confirmed a new case of Ebola in the financial capital Lagos, bringing the total number of people in the country with the virus to 10.

Health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said the latest confirmed case was a female nurse who came into contact with a Liberian-American man, Patrick Sawyer, who died of Ebola in a Lagos hospital on July 25.

In addition to Sawyer, another nurse who had contact with him died last week, while seven other people have been confirmed to have the virus in the city, he added.

And it looks like we may now have our first case of Ebola in Rwanda

Rwanda’s health officials have placed a man suspected of suffering from Ebola in isolation at King Faisal Hospital Kigali. A statement by the Ministry of Health released on Sunday indicates that the patient had been tested with results still expected. Samples from the suspected case have been sent for testing to an international accredited laboratory, and results will be available in 48 hours, the statement said. The suspected case is a European medical student, according to the statement. It is the first suspected Ebola case in Rwanda since the outbreak of the virus in West Africa. The government urged the public to remain calm and vigilant, as the ministry is closely monitoring the situation.

All the preventive measures needed in line with national standards are already in place, including surveillance systems and emergency management systems, it assured, adding “Health workers have been trained across the country and are vigilant.” This will enable timely detection, notification and appropriate management of any suspected cases to safeguard Rwandans, the statement concluded.

Over in Ghana, a man that just died is being tested for the Ebola virus…

Ghana may be recording its first case of Ebola if tests on the blood samples of a Burkinabe man suspected to have died of Ebola proves positive. The man who was rushed to the Bawku Presby Hospital in the Upper East Region from Burkina Faso, died on arrival. The Medical Director at the Hospital, Dr Joseph Yaw Manu, who confirmed the incident to Citi News, said they sent the blood samples for testing because the man was brought in showing symptoms of Ebola. In an interview with Citi News, Dr. Manu said the patient was bleeding from his nostrils which raised their suspicion he may have died of the Ebola disease. Dr. Manu said they are awaiting the results from the blood sample test to verify the cause of death. He gave the assurance that the hospital is prepared to battle the disease. This is the fourth suspected case of Ebola reported in Ghana; two in Kumasi, one in Accra and now the Upper East Region.

Lastly, the little nation of Benin is now reporting two potential cases of Ebola

Benin has reported two cases of the deadly Ebola virus in the west African country. Health Ministry official Aboubacar Moufiliatou said that a man suspected to have contracted the virus had died. “Fortunately, blood samples have been taken from the deceased patient to examine if his death was linked with Ebola,” Moufililatou told the state television Thursday night. He said another man has been quarantined after showing symptoms of the deadly virus after returning from the Nigerian city of Lagos. “Blood tests from the suspected case will be conducted in laboratories approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) to confirm or deny the infection,” he said. The WHO has declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa to be an “international public health emergency” as the virus reportedly continues to spread through the region in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. According to the latest WHO report, Ebola has killed 932 people in West Africa. The Ebola virus, a contagious disease for which there is no known treatment or cure, can be transmitted to humans from wild animals and also spreads through contact with the body fluids of an infected person or someone who has died of the disease. Medical doctors say common symptoms of Ebola include high fever and headaches, followed by bleeding from openings in the body. If the cases turn out to be Ebola, this would be the fifth country in Africa where the virus has spread.

We are quickly getting to the point where it will become impossible to contain this virus.

And if it spreads to the United States, we are going to be in a massive amount of trouble.  The truth is that we are not prepared for an Ebola pandemic, and such a crisis would create a massive wave of panic and fear all over this country.

Unfortunately, despite the risks, we continue to bring people back to this country before we know that it is safe to do so

Health officials in North Carolina said on Sunday they will require missionaries and others coming home after working with people infected with Ebola in Africa to be placed in quarantine.

The quarantine is set to last for three weeks from the last exposure to someone infected in the West African Ebola outbreak, which is centred in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, the officials said.

Missionaries from the North Carolina-based Christian aid groups SIM USA and Samaritan’s Purse have been working to help combat the world’s worst outbreak of the disease. Two of the relief workers, Dr Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, contracted the disease and are being cared for at Emory University hospital in Georgia.

Why couldn’t those individuals just be quarantined over there an extra three weeks in a safe area and then come home?

All it takes is one sick person.  Once the disease gets here and starts spreading, there isn’t much that we can do about it.  There is no cure for Ebola, and according to the New York Times it is going to be quite a while before one is potentially available…

The drugs that could potentially treat those already infected and the vaccines to protect healthy people from infection are all in the earliest stages of testing. And even if they do pass muster in clinical trials, they cannot be produced in large quantities quickly enough to stem the widening epidemic anytime soon.

And the CDC agrees with this assessment

“We do not know how to treat Ebola or vaccinate against it — and it will be a long time before we do.”

Those are very sobering words.

For now, our health officials are telling us that we have very little to be concerned about.

But they can’t even tell us why more than 170 health workers have caught the virus.

So let’s hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.


Expert Gives Jaw-Dropping Ebola Testimony – “Tip Of The Iceberg” As “Perfect Storm” Nears

Steve Quayle and mystery ‘Dr. S’ join the Hagmann and Hagmann Report in this newly released video from Saving Truth for a jaw-dropping discussion about the perfect storm we are now watching unfold and the potential of widespread death here due to ebola in America.

WHO Warns “No End In Sight” – Ebola Outbreak “Evolving In Alarming Ways”

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

A dire warning from the World Health Organization (WHO) as they issue their latest Ebola update on August 11, 2014, declaring that “The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in west Africa continues to evolve in alarming ways, with no immediate end in sight. Many barriers stand in the way of rapid containment.”

Other key quotes which encompasses how critical the situation actually is, in terms of management, diagnostics, and containment.

• The recent surge in the number of cases has stretched all capacities to the breaking point. Supplies of personal protective equipment and disinfectants are inadequate. The outbreak continues to outstrip diagnostic capacity, delaying the confirmation or exclusion of cases and impeding contact tracing.

• Some treatment facilities are overflowing; all beds are occupied and patients are being turned away. Many facilities lack reliable supplies of electricity and running water. Aid organizations, including Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders), which has provided the mainstay of clinical care, are exhausted.

• Health-care staff fear for their lives. To date, more than 170 health-care workers have been infected and at least 81 have died.

• The incubation period ranges from 2 to 21 days, but patients become contagious only after the onset of symptoms. As symptoms worsen, the ability to transmit the virus increases. As a result, patients are usually most likely to infect others at a severe stage of the disease, when they are visibly, and physically, too ill to travel.

This is what they are saying officially, but as shown in the video below, the situation is even more dire than is being reported because there is no way to determine the actual death toll, which is “officially” nearing 1,000, because of unreported cases as the deadly virus continues to spread to surrounding countries.
