Ebola death toll tops 4,900 as virus spreads – WHO – Warning 10,000 a week could die

We are incapable of coming together as ONE species, this will kill us all one day, be it this Ebola outbreak or another Global Pandemic or emergency this dangerous

Our ignorance and hatred towards each other I believe will test us, our whole species, in every corner of the World. Our inability to fight this together is so evident. We must come together as ONE WORLD and fast before Ebola wipes out a Billion or two people, maybe more. The CDC and W.H.O have both said ‘We have not seen Ebola peak yet’ Sadly we won’t come together as a species. We are not capable of stopping bombing each other and playing war games to do that. A sad fact our future, if there is one, will look back and judge us on

GENEVA, Oct 25 (Reuters) – The death toll from the Ebola epidemic rose to 4,922 out of 10,141 known cases in eight countries through Oct. 23, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Saturday. The virus, which reached Mali through a two-year-old girl who died on Friday, now threatens Ivory Coast, having infected people virtually all along its borders with Guinea and Liberia.

Ivory Coast is the world’s biggest cocoa producer. The Ebola outbreak has hurt the economic growth that has been raising living standards in the region. The three worst-hit countries of West Africa — Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — account for the bulk of the world’s worst Ebola outbreak, recording 4,912 deaths out of 10,114 cases, the WHO said in its update. The overall figures include outbreaks in Nigeria and Senegal, deemed by the WHO to be now over, as well as isolated cases in Spain, the United States and a single case in Mali. But the true toll may be three times as much: by a factor of 1.5 in Guinea, 2 in Sierra Leone and 2.5 in Liberia, while the death rate is thought to be about 70 percent of all cases.

The WHO has said that many families are keeping infected people at home rather than putting them into isolation in treatment centres, some of which have refused patients due to a lack of beds and basic supplies. The U.N. agency, sounding an ominous note, said that out of the eight districts of Liberia and Guinea sharing a border with Ivory Coast, only two have yet to report confirmed or probable Ebola cases. It has also said trials of Ebola vaccines could begin in West Africa in December, a month earlier than expected, and hundreds of thousands of doses should be available for use by the middle of next year.

The WHO says 15 African states including Ivory Coast are at highest risk of the deadly virus being imported. In the last 10 days it sent teams to both priority Mali and Ivory Coast to help national authorities gear up their capacity to detect and treat potential cases. Four WHO experts are travelling this weekend to Mali to reinforce the team there. The agency warned on Friday that many people in Mali had potentially been exposed to the virus because the little girl was taken across the country while ill. Some 43 people with whom she was in contact, including 10 health care workers, are being monitored for symptoms that include fever.

In all, 450 health care workers have been infected to date — including one in Spain and three in the United States — leading to the death of 244 of them, the WHO said. “At the same time, exhaustive efforts are ongoing to ensure an ample supply of optimal personal protective equipment to all Ebola treatment facilities, along with the provision of training and relevant guidelines to ensure that all HCWs (health care workers) are exposed to the minimum possible level of risk.”

A medical worker quarantined in New Jersey on her return from treating Ebola victims in West Africa was being evaluated in a hospital isolation ward on Saturday after new contagion-control safeguards were imposed for America’s biggest urban center. Isolation wards have been used for medical personnel returning from Ebola zones since Craig Spencer, a doctor who treated patients in Guinea for a month, came back to New York City infected. “The patient is currently in isolation at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, one of eight New York State hospitals that have been designated to treat patients with Ebola Virus Disease. Possible contacts are being identified and followed up,” WHO said.

New Ebola Cases May Rise to 10,000 a Week by December

Why Are So Many Drs and Nurses Getting Ebola?

Why are we not closing borders or flights World wide?

Why are we not closing borders or flights World wide?

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I know Dr’s and Health workers are more likely to be exposed, but the USA has the CDC and the protocol in dealing with Ebola or any other Global killer should be 110% in action. It is not, these poor health workers and Dr’s are getting sick. I am only asking why this is. There should be precaution in place, Hazmat suits washed before and after. I am asking how these people are being infected. Just so people who don’t know read the blog and comment only on the title know. So why did I write this? Hmm…lol

Today we seen another new case of a Dr with Ebola in New York https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/new-york-doctor-tests-positive-for-ebola/ , more aid workers are catching the disease as each day/week passes, so we have to ask, is Ebola Airborne? I think if Ebola was Airborne we would be seeing thousands already in Hospitals, but keep in mind this is a different strain of Ebola. Dr’s were sending people home in West Africa with the Flu because they couldn’t pick up this new strain of Ebola. People are acting as if “This won’t effect me” or “It’s not that bad” Well the stark truth is, if people become relaxed or a country becomes too relaxed over Ebola they risk giving the planet Ebola! Britain was first to stop flights to West Africa and there were talks about stopping all flights totally to our small Island if it looked like it would take hold, as we stand it has not taken hold, but after 5 days of no bad news out side Western Africa we now have a Dr in New York who, I am hearing has been ill for days and been in and out of work, shopping malls etc. Wow did he get it? He MUST know the rules of wearing the Hazmat suit and being cleaned off before taking it off. This tells me people are being exposed in another way, if it is not Airborn then how are people getting Ebola who work in these areas? All it takes is one sick person to walk through a shopping centre or mall. He sneezes or coughs and he leaves his spit all over that area and people can catch Ebola this way

The people treating the effected in Africa and America must use 100% perfect protocol when dealing with Ebola. We look and see pictures of sick/vomit from the man in Dallas who died, Eric Duncan being cleaned by men in regular clothes with a water spray!!  That vomit should have been cleaned by the  CDC not rented clearers of a housing property, this is what happened in the case of Mr Duncan, his landlord was left to clean up the vomit and hired some company, People in the photos aren’t in Level 4 Hazmat suits IN THE USA!

What is missing? Level 4 suits, that is what is missing!!

WHAT ON EARTH? THIS IS EBOLA! NOT THE FLU

HARD TO BELIEVE

I will tell you what is missing! Level 4 Hazmat suits,

This lad look to be prepared to deal with a house of a dead Ebola patient? Because he did!!

This lad look to be prepared to deal with the house of a dead Ebola patient? Because he did!!

Everyone in Hazmat suits but one with a suit on. Makes no sense right?

So we must be real careful, we were told by the Major of New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio that is was really hard to catch Ebola and he is right, but when we see the infected and how their vomit is being cleaned that MUST send Alarm bells ringing with both the CDC and W.H.O, also in the elevator/lift in the Hospital it was cleaned by cleaners not in proper suits,  and if it doesn’t send that message, then we are all doomed,  VERY DOOMED, as one reader kindly told me earlier this week. ‘Doom’ now Miss kind reader? Yes one person thought they would come into my blog and poke fun and say “Doom” in a joking way. I wonder how that person feels today as they live in New York. I wonder how that person feels today. Ebola being in that person’s area, I wonder if that person finds it oh so funny now? We all, every person, every city, every country treat Ebola like an enemy. Sadly and I know this as a fact, the reason Ebola is in the USA is because of money, see the USA don’t spend high amount’s of money unless it’s on War. So Ebola, sadly, could be thriving all over the North East of the USA due to people acting like they are above the threat of the biggest threat to humanity when it comes to bacteria is SHOCKING!.. We can’t see Ebola, we only see what it does. Sadly people are too relaxed over Ebola.

That relaxed attitude can and will kill 90% of the Worlds population if people don’t start taking this serious and stop watching Fox News etc
