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

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.

Why Are So Many Drs and Nurses Getting Ebola?

Standard

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?

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

Well it looks like Ebola is calming down very fast in the USA, THANKFULLY! No reports now in 5 days since President Obama asked the Media to calm down with every story of a person sick on a plane and other stories, frightening people and giving people like me Ebola news to write about. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/obama-warns-americans-against-ebola-hysteria/ Pretty much since that speech, there have been not one new report or scare. This is good, 2 Countries in Africa, Senegal and Nigeria are now Ebola free Countries, so I think we, as a World have beaten Ebola. I hope I am not speaking too soon. In West Africa a few Countries are still struggling badly, so we remain vigilant, but this here is fantastic news anyway you tell it, lets hope and pray this trend continues over the coming weeks, we must however still listen to the CDC and W.H.O The World Health Organisation said just 10 days ago it will spread worse.

W.H.O and CDC Have both said in the last 10/14 days Ebola will spread to around 10,000 infected a day

A photojournalist has been cured of Ebola as the United States tightens restrictions on travellers from West African countries. Ashoka Mukpo, who was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News in Monrovia, Liberia, when he fell ill, will go home on Wednesday. In a statement, the 33-year-old American said he was humbled by his recovery.

“Too many are not as fortunate and lucky as I’ve been. I’m very happy to be alive.”

Eight people including Mr Mukpo have or are being treated for ebola in the US; one of whom, a man from Liberia, has died.

One of the two nurses infected with the virus while treating a Liberian patient in Dallas is now faring better, the National Institutes of Health said on Tuesday.

Nina Pham’s condition has been upgraded from fair to good. Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, which is treating the second nurse, Amber Vinson, has so far has not given an update on her condition. Her mother said she remained weak, without offering further details. The stories of recovery came amid news that passengers travelling to the US from three West African countries must enter the country through one of five airports. The designated airports are New York’s Kennedy, Newark Liberty, Washington’s Dulles, Chicago’s O’Hare and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta. Each of these hospitals implemented enhanced ebola screenings earlier this month. Government officials said about 94% of the estimated 150 daily passengers from the stricken region pass through those five airports. Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson said the decision was based on the department’s “ongoing response to prevent the spread of Ebola to the United States”.

Ebola crisis: Spanish nurse Teresa Romero cured of virus after final test clears her

A Spanish nurse who was the first person to catch Ebola outside Africa has been cured of the deadly virus according to doctors treating her. “She is now cured,” Dr Jose Ramon Arribas, head of Madrid’s Carlos III Hospital’s infectious diseases unit, told reporters. The diagnosis of Teresa Romero, 44, on October 6 sparked fears that the disease would spread through Europe. But Dr Arribas gave the nurse the all clear and declared “the criteria set by the World Health Organisation for curing the Ebola virus have been fulfilled”. She has had two negative tests in the past 48 hours indicating she was now clear of Ebola, after being in isolation in hospital since contracting the disease.

Ms Romero was one of the nursing staff at the Carlos III hospital who treated two elderly Spanish missionaries who caught the disease in West Africa and died in Madrid in August and September. It is believed she was given human serum containing antibodies from Ebola survivors and other drugs. Despite being cleared she will remain in hospital until she has fully recovered. Ms Romero’s husband Javier Limon and another 14 people who had contact with her before she was diagnosed are under observation at the hospital but none has yet shown symptoms. Dr Arribas said a specialist laboratory confirmed that a fourth and final round of tests had shown her to be clear of the virus.

The news sparked relief after two tense weeks which raised public sympathy for the nurse and questions about safety procedures and public spending cuts in Spain’s health sector. “Someone surviving the Ebola virus is always a cause for celebration,” said Marta Arsuaga, one of the doctors who have been working round the clock treating Ms Romero. Dr Arribas said that according to WHO guidelines, officials will have to wait until 42 days after the curing of the last infected patient to declare the country free of Ebola. Ebola, which begins with fever and can then escalate to diarrhoea, vomiting, internal bleeding and organ failure, has killed more than 4,500 people.

US funnels travellers from Ebola-hit nations to five airports

Flights from West Africa arrive here, as Obama finally acts on air travel

Meanwhile, a US photojournalist infected with Ebola in Liberia is now free of the virus and will go home, the Nebraska hospital treating him said. “Recovering from Ebola is a truly humbling feeling,” said Ashoka Mukpo, who was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News in Monrovia when he fell ill. Travellers entering the United States whose trips originated in Ebola-stricken Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea must now fly into one of five airports that have enhanced screening in place. The restrictions will subject affected travellers to temperature tests among other protocols at New York’s JFK, New Jersey’s Newark, Washington Dulles, Atlanta and Chicago’s O’Hare international airports. Those airports account for about 94 per cent of the passengers flying to the United States from the Ebola-hit nations. The restrictions, announced by the US department of homeland security, will take effect from Wednesday (US time) and apply to all travellers, including US citizens and those who would have arrived by land or sea.

BREAKING – Spain monitoring three more for Ebola signs

Teresa Romero was photographed conscious and sitting up under her own power in an isolation ward in a Madrid hospital Oct. 11. There are now 16 people in quarantine in Spain.

Three more people have been admitted to hospital in Madrid to be monitored for signs of Ebola, bringing the total number under observation to 15 in Spain alone. Saturday’s development came as the Spanish nurse infected with Ebola was reported to be conscious and sitting unaided. Teresa Romero, 44, is the only person known to have caught the virus outside Africa. None of the 15 others still under observation has been diagnosed with Ebola so far, though the Spanish government is under fire for its handling both of Romero’s case and the threat of a wider outbreak of the disease. Images by the Reuters news agency showed Romero alert and sitting upright in her hospital room with an oxygen mask strapped to her face and responding to the hospital staff attending to her. She had taken a turn for the worse two days ago, health authorities said, and is still considered critical.

“Teresa Romero’s condition has undergone no significant changes and is still serious, but stable,” a government Ebola committee said in a statement on Saturday afternoon, addin that she has begun talking. The latest outbreak of the disease has already killed more than 4,000 people, mostly in West Africa, and Romero’s case has raised fears about contagion in Europe and elsewhere. The UK has said it will start screening passengers for Ebola who enter the country through London’s two main airports and by railway from continental Europe. The US on Saturday began screening travellers from West Africa at New York’s John F. Kennedy International airport. Spain’s government tightened Ebola detection protocols on Friday and entrusted Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, deputy prime minister, with the responsibility to respond to the health crisis.

Men treated by Romero died

Romero was diagnosed with Ebola after caring for two priests who had contracted the disease in Africa and were then repatriated to Spain. Both men died, one in August and one in September. Another nurse who treated one of the priests was released from hospital late on Saturday, after testing negative for Ebola. A hairdresser, another nurse and a cleaner, all of whom came into contact with Romero, were admitted to the isolation unit at the Carlos III hospital on Friday evening. The 13 who were already under observation included Romero’s husband. An experimental treatment, ZMab, is available in Spain for use in her case, a health source said. However, it was not clear whether she was now being given the drug. She was given antibodies from previously infected patients earlier this week. The ZMab combination drug, made by Canada-based company Defyrus Inc, is one of the agents used to make ZMapp, another treatment, which was developed by MappBiopharmaceutical Inc.

ZMapp has been used on some Ebola sufferers, a number of whom survived, but available supplies are exhausted. Hospital authorities and the government declined to comment. A hairdresser, another nurse and a cleaner, all of whom came into contact with Romero, were admitted to the isolation unit at the Carlos III hospital on Friday evening. The 13 who were already under observation included Romero’s husband.

Ebola crisis: global response has ‘failed miserably’, says World Bank chief – As World is warned millions could die

Standard

iW_EUnVa8QA8

When these guys give money away, it’s to protect the rest of the money, lets be clear on this

The president of the World Bank, Jim Kim, admitted on Wednesday that the international community had “failed miserably” in its response to the Ebola virus that has killed more than 3,800 people in west Africa and warned that the crisis now affecting Spain and the US was going to get much worse. Amid signs yesterday that western governments were being forced to take the risks of a global pandemic more seriously, Kim said he wanted them to back a new $20bn (£12bn) global health fund that would be able to react instantly to emergencies. “It’s late. It’s really late,” he said in an interview with the Guardian before the annual meeting of the Washington-based organisation this weekend. “We should have done so many things. Healthcare systems should have been built. There should have been monitoring when the first cases were reported. There should have been an organised response.” Kim’s warning that the global community was still not “moving fast enough” came as the Ebola virus claimed its first victim in the US and news of a case in Spain sent shares in travel and airline companies tumbling on stock exchanges. The World Health Organisation (WHO) said the number of deaths from Ebola in west Africa now stood at 3,879 with no evidence that the epidemic was being brought under control.

The US has announced that it is scaling up its efforts and will tighten screening procedures at airports from this weekend. Thomas Duncan, who died in a Dallas hospital on Wednesday after arriving from Liberia, lied in a questionnaire about whether he had been in contact with anyone affected by Ebola. Britain also announced on Wednesday that it was scaling up its efforts to deal with the Ebola virus which has gripped three west African countries –Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

OBAMA AT UNITED NATIONS ON EBOLA – WARNING to the WORLD. Ebola is Spreading at Alarming Speed

Let’s no forget the utter importance and real threat Ebola is “Spreading at alarming speed and it will get worse”

All of England’s major hospitals are making preparations to isolate and treat patients suspected of having Ebola if a serious outbreak occurs, while more than 750 military personnel and the medical ship RFA Argus are being sent to west Africa to help contain the outbreak. RFA Argus has a fully-equipped hospital including critical care and high-dependency units, and will be sent to Sierra Leone along with three Merlin helicopters. The announcement followed a meeting of the government’s Cobra emergency committee, chaired by the UK prime minister.

However the government has come under pressure to do more to prevent the disease spreading in the UK, including calls for the introduction of screening at airports and other transport hubs. Keith Vaz, chairman of Britain’s Commons home affairs select committee, said: “We must do all we can, both at the source and in the UK, to combat the spread of this virus. “Our immediate response should be to tighten regulation and introduce measures such as screenings at airports, train stations and ferry ports to ensure that this deadly disease cannot take more lives.

I will share some quotes with you from around the World. I can’t say they are 100% but I do know these people would not lie:

“Yes, this is a friend of a friend kind of post. Check my posting history; I don’t do these kinds of threads. If a mod of member I trust wants details, pm me and I will provide.  Source is a nurse who is also a relative of mine, and is currently a patient in a hospital. There are more lies being told about the case in Dallas than even we have been supposing, including the time of death, contacts being traced, and people with symptoms beginning to show. Will update as more information arrives”

~~

Officials are also in the process of examining clinical staff and other facility patrons. The number of people impacted at the Care Now facility is unknown.

~~

I’ll be watching this one… Being 30 minutes from downtown Dallas I have a horse in this race. Keep it coming.  I started a thread “Possible Ebola Case, Dallas Texas” breaking this story on ATS. On page one of that thread a member I now call Dan the Man posted some inside information from a nurse he knows that works in the hospital he was being treated at. Sadly his source went dry after one further update. I’m sure the nurse had fear for their job as he said they were told not to say anything. They are going as far as changing the in house communication methods. Prior to the Mr. Duncans arrival Dr’s were contacted by their personal cell phones. Now cell phones are not allowed in the building. They are keeping very tight lipped on the real situation there, so I am excited at the prospect of some real updates from real, honest people, not pushing an agenda.

~~

Trust me, I’ve railed against all the incarnations of Mr. Schnitzel that have appeared on these boards over the years I’ve been here.  I will give as many details as I can.  Source is a relative who is a nurse (has been for a long time, and is well versed in this virus in particular) and is a patient in one of the few hospitals in the country that does have the facilities to deal with this virus.  As one can imagine, this topic is on many lips in the hospital.  It is this person’s opinion that the virus is, and has been, transmissible prior to onset of symptoms.   That is the bigges lie we are being told.

~~

As you can see the responses from people from many parts of the World are real and it has and will effect us all in some way. I too was puzzled by the Dallas patient’s death being reported by Israel a day or so ago. I wonder if the delay reporting his death in the U.S. media had something to do with this strange side-story about “blood transfers” from survivors. That might account for the delay, in order to get survivor blood to him – or from him to another patient. Obama in his speech was 100% correct to have a go at Russia, China and others for doing little or nothing to calm this surge of Death that Obama has said, the CDC and W.H.O have said, experts in the field have said, THIS CAN AND WILL KILL MILLIONS+ if we fail to act now and act as one World. Sadly Wars are still being fought when we could in some way come together and help stop the spread of a disease that. as said ‘Is totally out of control. Feel free to look at the link below or search my blog from the 1st Ebola blog till now to see where we went wrong, Dr’s didn’t know this is a new/different strain of Ebola and were sending people home thinking they had the flu. The World bank has stepped forward to help, and it will ask all countries to put into the money pot to help. Also I can’t believe how fast this disease is moving, it is almost totally out of control, if not already there 

~~

I myself reported the Death 2 days before the media and like many in this hospital many don’t understand the delay : https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/06/breaking-ebola-patient-in-dallas-has-died-reports/ This was October 6th, the death was announced on the 8th. Many told me that “Thomas Duncan is getting better and will recover” I had this comment “How can you say he’s dead when a family member tweeted yesterday to say Thomas was getting better” Now who am I to say what is right or not right. Israel (Mossad) are the World’s best spying operation, if the say it, you can usually take it to the bank. I am hearing also Nurses are ‘almost’ refusing to go to work in a few hospitals. People are very scared and I think America has actually woken up for once to the Worst’ disease there is on Earth being a clear and present Danger. Right now ISIS/IS are of little debate, Ebola for now is the biggest threat to our species since the Spanish Flu around 1919 that killed 7% of the globe (I read 3% I read 7% more often) And this was before ‘Lets jump on a plane to Paris and people traveling all corners of the World every day. Australia got it’s first case of Ebola yesterday meaning every continent on Earth with people living day to day lives has now seen Ebola. The CDC said 2 months ago “Ebola is out of Control” W.H.O have said pretty much the same. Now we see the World bank move to protect it’s money. I would love to say they did it because it was the right things to do, sadly I am not sure. Obama was 100% correct when he accused Russia and China and others (He didn’t name names, he doesn’t have to) of doing very little and this could cause more deaths. The latest projection is 10 Million people will die. Lets hope this isn’t true. But every few hours I hear of a possible new patient, it is a story I started writing about early May and here we are in September and all I feared is unfolding before mhttps://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=ebola

“Immigration officers are not trained health professionals. Greater support must be offered to ensure that they are equipped to deal with this outbreak to prevent it reaching the UK.” Kim said he welcomed the UK and the US scaling up their efforts, but said that a high price was being paid for 11 months of delay and inter-agency argument. “Now that there are cases in Spain and the US, the chance of the virus going to other European countries is fairly high,” he said. In a blunt assessment of how the international community had coped with the crisis, Kim said: “We were tested by Ebola and we failed. We failed miserably in our response.”

He urged finance ministers attending meetings of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund this weekend to provide the resources needed to treat Ebola patients in their home countries. Under the Bank’s plan, resources would be provided to build big specialised treatment centres and to extend care to local communities. Every developed country should be prepared to send trained medical staff to west Africa, Kim said.

“We don’t need to stop all travel from these countries. It’s going to be impossible to stop people. The way to stop the flow of patients from these countries getting to the rest of the world is to have programmes that will treat people and increase survival dramatically. It’s possible. “We need to have quality services in place so that the motivation to leave these countries goes away. It is a rational thing to do to get away because we don’t have the treatment in place.” Rudimentary healthcare systems in the three west African countries have encouraged people to travel abroad for treatment, thereby spreading the virus. Before the crisis, Liberia had 61 doctors and 1,000 nurses, while Sierra Leone had 327 hospital beds. “I say to finance ministers: look at what’s happening in Spain right now. It is going to get much worse.”

The authorities in Spain said they were dealing with the first case of Ebola that had been transmitted outside of the three west African countries – a nurse who treated a priest who had flown to Madrid for care. The World Health Organisation said further “sporadic” cases of Ebola in Europe were now inevitable. A World Bank study released on Wednesday showed that the economic cost of Ebola could be as high as $33bn over the next two years if the virus spreads to neighbouring countries in west Africa.

Kim admitted that the Bank had been having arguments with the WHO over Ebola but that they had now stopped. “The most important thing is to stop arguing about what is or is not possible and to get on with doing what’s needed.” Kim said his plan involved big treatment centres being set up by the US and the UK together with attempts to provide as full a range of services as possible into local communities. He said: “It would be good if you could manage the treatment of people close to home. But you can’t do that without the personnel. “We need to put the capacity into place so that cases are identified more quickly.” Oxfam criticised the World Bank for its failure to invest enough in healthcare and in its promotion of user-fees and privatisation.

Nicolas Mombrial, head of Oxfam in Washington, said: “This has changed rhetorically under Jim Kim. We hope to see it play out in the Bank’s lending and advice from now. Ebola should serve to accelerate this change.” Kim said that countries such as Sierra Leone had used financial support from the Bank to improve energy supplies, but added: “This has taught us that we have to be much more serious about putting health systems into place.” He contrasted health systems in the three west African countries with Rwanda, which has 55,000 health workers. “If this had happened in Rwanda we would have had it under control.”

Kim said it was fortunate Ebola was not a quick-moving virus but the chances of a quick moving virus in the next 10 years is high. “This was sloppy work on even a slow-moving virus like Ebola. If we have seen this with a slow moving virus we are not even close to being ready to deal with a fast moving virus.” He said Ebola highlighted the need to have a speedier way of responding to health crises. “Why don’t we have a multibillion dollar fund of $10bn, $15bn or $20bn set up so that once there is a global health emergency it can be drawn down on very quickly?”

Spanish Nurse Contracts Ebola

Spanish Nurse Contracts Ebola

A Spanish nurse has become the first person to contract ebola outside of West Africa during an outbreak that has killed more than 3,400 people. The woman was part of a medical team at Madrid’s La Paz-Carlos III hospital that treated two missionaries, who died shortly after being repatriated from Africa with the disease. Health Minister Ana Mato said an emergency protocol had been put in place and authorities were working to establish the source of the contagion. “We are working to guarantee the safety of all citizens,” she said. Spanish priest Miguel Pajares, 75, was infected with ebola in Liberia and died at the hospital on 12 August.  Another Spanish missionary, Manuel Garcia Viejo, 69, was repatriated from Sierra Leone and died at the hospital on 25 September. Both were members of a Roman Catholic group that runs a charity working with ebola victims in Africa. A Spanish health official said 30 medical staff who treated the two priests are being monitored. The infected nurse began to feel ill on 30 September, but did not go to hospital until Sunday complaining of a fever. The assistant nurse, who is married without children, is being treated in isolation at a hospital in a southern Madrid suburb. Health authorities are trying to track down all the people she may have come in contact with since she contracted the disease.

A hazardous materials team was called to Jackson Memorial Hospital, Florida, on Sunday amid fears that a teenager traveling from West Africa may have the deadly Ebola virus

A hazardous materials team was called to Jackson Memorial Hospital, Florida, on Sunday amid fears that a teenager traveling from West Africa may have the deadly Ebola virus

Several police cars and rescue vehicles ringed Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson and the unit was quarantined for two hours following the teenager’s transfer, reports the Miami Herald. ‘It’s important to point out that this patient did not meet the Centers for Disease Control case definition for Ebola, but the test is being conducted out of an abundance of caution, and health officials expect the test to rule out Ebola,’ said Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday night.  ‘Florida still does not have any confirmed cases of Ebola, and we hope we never do, but we are taking every preparedness step possible to keep our citizens and our visitors safe.’ A firm diagnosis can take 48 hours, experts say.  Authorities haven’t disclosed the patient’s name or said which West African country he and his family were from. Jackson spokesman Edwin O’Dell had said the hospital was prepared to handle the case if it turned out to be Ebola. ‘Jackson has been publicly forthcoming in asserting our confidence and readiness, and that we have established and tested protocols to deal with infectious diseases in general and with Ebola in specific,’ he said. ‘We will do everything to ensure safety and treatment for all of our patients.’ It is almost a week since Thomas Duncan, who had traveled to Dallas from Liberia, became the first person in the United States to be diagnosed with the disease.  The Florida Department of Health has requested 30 additional Ebola testing kits from the CDC to ensure that all of Florida’s public hospitals ‘have the ability to test patients who county health officials and the CDC believe need to be tested for Ebola,’ said Scott. The Health Department also requested ‘100 units of additional high-level personal protective equipment to ensure the state is ready to backfill any county whose medical personnel develop a future need for these supplies.’

Obama Signals New Ebola Passenger Screening

Ebola Cameraman's Mum Reveals Worry

Ebola Cameraman’s Mum Reveals Worry

Barack Obama has said his administration is working on additional protocols for screening airplane passengers to identify people who might have ebola. The President made the announcement after meeting health and security officials who are involved in attempting to prevent an outbreak of the disease in the US. He told reporters the chance of an outbreak in the US was “extraordinarily low”, but that there was not a large margin for error. The White House is not currently proposing a travel ban for West Africa, epicentre of the outbreak.  In a reminder of the risks facing medical professionals, a nurse who treated an ebola patient in Madrid, Spain, became the first person to contract ebola outside of West Africa. Earlier on Monday, an NBC News cameraman who contracted ebola in Liberia became the fifth American to return to the US after contracting the disease.

All my Articles on Ebola since almost day one https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=ebola Many of us, me included are thinking this is “ALL OK” When in-fact it is not. W.H.O and the CDC have both said in the past two days they have no idea where this is.

Ebola outbreak sweeping West Africa started with two-year-old boy infected by a fruit bat, say researchers http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2733122/Ebola-outbreak-sweeping-West-Africa-started-two-year-old-boy-infected-fruit-bat-say-researchers.html

Health workers at Ebola outbreak sites are seeing evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the crisis as they work around the clock to stop the disease from spreading, according to the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO, in its latest update on the Ebola outbreak in West Africa dated August 14, said no new cases have been detected in Nigeria, attributing the outcome to extensive contact tracing and monitoring, implemented with support from the United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Elsewhere, the outbreak is expected to continue for some time, WHO said.

The most recent statistics compiled by WHO show that the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa continues to escalate, with 1975 cases and 1069 deaths reported from Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.

But WHO also said: Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak.

On the humanitarian side, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is delivering food to the more than one million people locked down in the quarantine zones, where the borders of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone intersect, and several countries have agreed to support the provision of priority food staples for this population.

The UN Childrens Fund (UNICEF), in a blog post from Sierra Leone on the joys of survivors of the deadly disease, says that Ebola survivors can play a valuable role in dispelling myths and in gaining community support in the fight against Ebola.

Some people in Sierra Leone still have not accepted that Ebola is real. While many survivors fear stigma, some are now coming forward and telling their brave stories, wrote UNICEF consultant Jo Dunlup.

WHO said it is mapping the outbreak in great detail, to pinpoint areas of ongoing transmission and locate treatment facilities and supplies.

CDC is equipping the hardest-hit countries with computer hardware and software that will soon allow real-time reporting of cases and analysis of trends, according to the UN agencys update.

WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan in Geneva regularly meets with ambassadors from United Nations missions based in the Swiss city to identify the most urgent needs within countries and match them with rapid international support.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appointed Dr. David Nabarro as Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Ebola, in support of the work done by the WHO team.

WHO has expressed its disappointment that some airlines have stopped flying to West Africa. It is hard to save lives if we and other health workers cannot get in, WHO has said.

WHO has repeatedly said the Ebola virus is highly contagious but not airborne. Transmission requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, as can occur during health-care procedures, home care, or traditional burial practices, which involve the close contact of family members and friends with bodies.

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.

Ebola scare in Spanish coastal resort popular with British tourists

Ebola scare in Spanish coastal resort popular with British tourists

An Ebola scare has taken place in a Spanish coastal resort popular with British tourists. Health chiefs in Alicante, Spain, have activated their alert protocols after a Nigerian man showed ‘several symptoms’ of the disease. He was admitted to hospital with fever and vomiting, prompting concern among doctors, Sky News reported. It comes after Spanish priest Father Miguel Pajares died from the deadly disease which he caught while working in Liberia. Yesterday, a patient was quarantined during an Ebola scare at a British hospital. The man, who had travelled from Lebanon, walked into the Accident and Emergency department at Weston General Hospital in Somerset at around 9am. Nurses became concerned that the symptoms he was displaying were related to the disease and he was isolated on the ward. Tests carried out on the patient later confirmed he was not infected with Ebola.

Patients were kept waiting for assessments at the hospital in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, while the hour-long incident was resolved.A hospital spokeswoman said: “A patient came in from abroad and because of some of the symptoms they were displaying, the accident and emergency department were naturally very cautious. “They followed all the correct procedures and the proper triaging. The patient was found not to have Ebola. “After around an hour it was back to business as normal once the department had established there was no cause for concern.” Isolating Ebola patients is critical to slowing the spread of the disease, as sick people can transmit it through their bodily fluids such as blood, sweat or urine. There is no licensed treatment or vaccine for the disease, which has killed at least half of its victims this year. The latest negative test comes after a Sierra Leone athlete competing at the Commonwealth Games was tested and found to be clear of Ebola in Glasgow last month. So far more than 1,000 people have died and almost 2,000 suspected, probable or confirmed cases have been recorded in West Africa since the outbreak was first detected.
