    The Second Wave: Senior Medical Official Issues Ebola Warning: “TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL”



    thedailysheeple.com / Mac Slavo / June 21st, 2014

    Earlier this year it was reported that the deadly Ebola virus had broken through all containment barriers making its way to seven west African countries. In an effort to stop widespread panic gripping the affected nations government officials told the Reuters news service that they would no longer release infection rates and death tolls to the public. In recent months, with no updates being provided to the public, many outside of Africa assumed that the virus spread had subsided.

    But according to the latest figures the Ebola contagion is now deadlier than ever. A senior official with the organization Doctors Without Borders spoke with the Associated Press this week and warned that a second wave of the epidemic has taken hold, thus far claiming the lives of over 300 people with the infection confirmed in at least 550 people.

    The Ebola outbreak ravaging West Africa is “totally out of control,” according to a senior official for Doctors Without Borders, who says the medical group is stretched to the limit in its capacity to respond.

    I was over in the DRC inbetween the 2007 and first 2008 outbreak. We were in Katanga province, just East of Occidental where the outbreaks were. Our "work areas" were pretty much void of wildlife and people so I wasn't too concerned. We'd go in some village in the boonies every now and then and see some old person coughing up a storm and try not to linger about, that's for sure! We had the 90-day "all clear" from the WHO when we went in, only to see they had an additional small cluster a couple months after we left. We actually found the information ourselves during due diligence before the trip, it was never offered to us during discussions with govt or private sector groups. Go figure.

    Any time I get sick, my boys still tell me it's probably some African parasite!

    Sometimes I sit at an airport and look around at the diverse cultures represented and I'm amazed that some of these serious viruses haven't made it this far yet. A 5-7 day incubation period is plenty of time for somebody to make it across the Atlantic. It's just a matter of time. SARS, bird flu, and chronic wasting disease should have taught us that!

    Mapping Africa’s “Totally Out Of Control” Ebola Epidemic



    zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 06/23/2014 18:39

    “The epidemic is totally out of control,” warns medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières of the deadly Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. “There is a real risk of it spreading to other areas…Ebola is no longer a public health issue limited to Guinea: it is affecting the whole of West Africa.” As of Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the number of cases at 362 — more than any other outbreak on record. Here’s everything you need to know about Ebola…

    Report: Ebola Suspected In Europe: “Broken Through All Containment Efforts”

    Though officials at the World Health Organization are feverishly working to stop the spread of the Ebola virus in what is now seven African nations, their efforts may be for naught. In Guinea, a hot spot for the deadly contagion, government health officials have said that the outbreak is nearly under control. Yet, Reuters reports that the government “planned to stop publicly releasing the death toll to avoid causing unnecessary panic.”

    But panic may be in order.

    Despite the best efforts of emergency health workers it appears that virus may have crossed out of Africa into Europe.

    The outbreak of Ebola Virus in seven west African countries has broken through all containment efforts and is spreading like wildfire. According to Christian Relief groups working in Guinea and Liberia, the number of confirmed infections jumped 15% in just the last 24 hours. In addition, 40 illegal alien migrant workers from the outbreak area, who came ashore in Pisa, Italy, are showing signs of Ebola infection and are being isolated in Pisa Italy because of fever and “conjunctivitis” (bloody around the eyes). According to the World Health Organization, this strain of Ebola is entirely new and although it is close to the Zaire strain, it is different, thus accounting for false-negative test results . . . . . for weeks!

    Those false-negative results meant people who were actually infected with Ebola, were returned to their families and neighborhoods to recover from what they believed was the Flu or a case of food poisoning, only to spread the Ebola further.

    The result has been a complete loss of containment of this Ebola outbreak.

    With the likely arrival of Ebola in Pisa, Italy, the European continent is now at severe risk.
    Italian officials deny the reports, but alternative media in the country suggests this is the reason for a complete lock down of a hospital in Pisa, where it is believed to have infected some 40 individuals. Other reports trickling in from various sources like social media indicate the virus may have also appeared about 50 miles from Pisa in Tuscany, Italy.

    Alarmingly, a story that appeared about the outbreak on national news wires was reportedly removed by the Italian government for “national security reasons,” suggesting that there is more to the reports than Italian officials are willing to express to the public at this time.

    Though they have denied that the Pisa hospital was locked down due to Ebola, they seem to be bracing for the possibility of a severe epidemic in Rome and Milan.

    (Google Translation via Italy’s Vnews24)

    And ‘mystery about forty hypothetical cases of Ebola registered in our country. The virus is particularly common on the African continent – the cases “official” were recorded in Senegal, Mali and Ghana - may have arrived in Italy “thank you” to the massive exodus of immigrants to our shores. A first “bell” d ‘alarm was launched by Lampedusa. According to a report appeared in the network (and immediately removed for reasons of “national security”), in fact, April 16 would be recorded on an epidemic ‘island, never confirmed nor refuted by our Ministry of Health.

    A new ”SOS” about the spread of the virus’ Ebola in the Bel Paese is, this time, from Tuscany. Means of dissemination of the news shock is always the network: blogs, social networks, websites dedicated highlighted the “Curious Case of St. Flushing,” reception center site in Pisa, closed to the public due to the presence, all ‘inside of it, forty non-EU nationals which are to some strange symptoms. Capuzzi Sandra, Councillor for Social Policies of the Municipality of Pisa, he would have dismissed the alarmism of his countrymen, by classifying the health status of the refugees in the structure in these terms: “They have just a little bit fever, caused by stressful travel conditions under which the children were subjected. “

    Fear, meanwhile, remains. The forty possible carriers of the virus’ Ebola have been subjected to all the tests required in high-risk situations. The Italian population, however, does not feel the climate of reassurance that high institutional positions and subjected try to transmit information through various channels, official and unofficial. The tension increases, although the Ministry of Health said that, in the unlikely event of an outbreak, Rome and Milan would be ready to face the ‘epidemic.
    According to Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian relief group actively working with hospitals and health officials in Guinea and Liberia, what makes Ebola so dangerous is that it can be transmitted through human contact and may take weeks before symptoms appear:

    The initial Ebola outbreak in Guinea is believed to have started when hunters came in contact with infected fruit bats. The Ebola virus is spread between humans through direct contact. Once infected, it can take up to 21 days for symptoms to appear, which include high fever, headaches, and fatigue. At that point, the infected person is contagious.
    With details lacking and health officials opting to keep reports of infections from the public, it is impossible to know exactly how far the virus has spread.

    As noted above, this new strain was not identified immediately, thus blood tests of people showing possible symptoms may have shown false-negatives even though those individuals may have been carrying the virus. Once returned to the general population and assuming they did not contract the virus, it is certainly possible that it was then transmitted to others.

    If Ebola has taken hold in Italy, then we can expect more reported cases all over the continent in coming weeks, with the real possibility that the virus could make its way to U.S. shores via hundreds of international flights arriving on a daily basis.

    It’s understandable that government officials do not want to overreact and cause panic, especially insofar as global air travel is concerned, because doing so would lead to a lock down of airports worldwide.

    The panic would be unprecedented.

    As noted by Tess Pennington of Ready Nutrition, even if the public became aware that a pandemic was in progress, many would remain in denial about such a prospect and would remain oblivious to the long-term repercussions. She notes that the effects of a pandemic could be swift and drastic, leading to societal upheaval :

    Understanding that our lives will change drastically if the population is faced with a pandemic and being prepared for this can help you make better choices toward the well being of your family. Some changes could be:

    Shut downs of business commerce
    Breakdown of our basic infrastructure: communications, mass transportation, supply chains
    Payroll service interruptions
    Staffing shortages in hospitals and medical clinics
    Interruptions in public facilities – Schools, workplaces may close, and public gatherings such as sporting events or worship services may close temporarily.
    Government mandated voluntary or involuntary home quarantine.

    (Source: Pandemic Preparedness)
    Given the continued spread of the virus to numerous countries in Africa, and now possibly Europe, we urge readers to remain vigilant and have, at the very least, their basic essentials in place.

    This virus is incurable and is believed to have a mortality rate of up to 85% of those infected.

    If it is spreading outside of Africa, then it is only a matter of time – perhaps several weeks – before it becomes apparent in developing nations.

    These posted probabilities are in no way authoritative, and should be considered a “best guess” only.

    Probabilities of unchecked infection at this point, based upon a method of travel, times and frequencies of airline flights to various cities, also including certain assumed volumes of “mixed maritime” traffic between north Africa and southern Europe - the Probability that Ebola will strike is:

    63% in Italy within 8 days
    44% in Spain within 15 days
    77% in Riyadh/Saudi within 21 days
    40% in Libya within 25 days
    29% in the US within 28 days
    37% in Egypt within 33 days

    By the time we get to 35 days, it can be in 25 countries on 4 continents.

    (Source: TRN)
    In the United States, the CDC has issued a travel alert to airlines and set up emergency quarantine stations at domestic airports, though there are no specific guidelines in place at this time according to BD Live:

    The US is well prepared to handle infected patients on its soil with 20 CDC quarantine stations in place at US airports that are designed to deal with anyone who has symptoms of a wide range of infectious illnesses, including Ebola, according to spokeswoman Christine Pearson. Despite the outbreak, there are no special requests or guidelines to airlines about Ebola, though the CDC has issued a travel alert, she said.

    “The time it takes to travel from rural Guinea to anywhere in the US is more than enough time to incubate the virus and be symptomatic,” Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow Laurie Garrett said in New York.
    If in the next month we see Ebola popping up in North America then we may have a serious problem on our hands.

    This is a developing report and is in no way conclusive. Official statements from the WHO, CDC and European governments have yet to confirm Ebola’s crossover into Europe or the United States. Updates will be provided as details become available.

    DEADLIEST EBOLA OUTBREAK EVER; WHO Responds by…Having a Meeting

    thedailysheeple.com / By Melissa Melton / July 6th, 2014



    The World Health Organization (WHO) has not only declared that the Ebola outbreak currently ravaging West Africa is “totally out of control,” but now the organization has officially declared it to be “one of the most challenging Ebola outbreaks ever.”

    That’s ever, as in “in the history of time since the WHO has recorded it”.

    Check out this list of recorded Ebola outbreaks. What’s happening now is the deadliest one.

    The death toll is now at 467, with nearly 800 people infected throughout Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The WHO points to faith in faith healers, the fact that these areas are so densely populated, and cross-border transmission as the three main reasons the outbreak continues to worsen by the minute.

    A WHO press release stated, “Containment of this outbreak requires a strong response in the countries and especially along their shared border areas.” Yes, a strong response, especially at shared border areas. This is EBOLA, after all. Deadly in 90% of people infected with it. Not something to deal with lightly.

    Ebola is spread by Man mating with Chimps and goats. Common practice in Africa. Now even the Border Patrol is begging us to listen and even refusing to touch these illegals mass inundating our southern borders.
    Their bringing disease we have not seen in the U.S. in years. Just a matter of time, I feel sorry for the younger crowd, enjoy.
    Poor damn goat, could not even say a word in its own defense.
