As we in the first World get ready to buy presents and spend time laughing and having fun with family and friends the Ebola Virus is still a HUGE Danger to us all. It has been removed from MANY countries with the USA being one. Sadly Sierra Leone is being hammered still, thousands more die each week there and families (Can you blame them) there are not handing in loved ones with Ebola symptoms. I say “Can we blame them” because how hard it is to say goodbye knowing you are handing over your loved one to die. Turn the coin around and you say “Well they are maybe going to infect the entire family” And this is where the danger still lurks for us all. It is under control Ebola  but readers please understand it won’t take much to go Global in a week again. We must stay vigilant and understand the danger for a species pandemic is still there. W.H.O and the C.D.C are saying this much still. I believe there was a possible Ebola case in the USA a few weeks ago and this may be my next blog. I will also address this issue here, the USA buying MILLIONS of 3 person, plastic coffins.

Fears of a sharp increase of cases mean even those who have not died from the disease are being buried in Ebola graveyards

Sierra Leone, caught in the grip of the Ebola crisis, is bracing itself for a sharp increase in cases of the killer disease over the Christmas period. The Government is so worried about the situation it has outlawed any seasonal public celebrations and will be putting soldiers on the street to make sure no one disobeys the directive. The outbreak of the virus, which began a year ago in neighbouring Guinea and quickly spread to Liberia, is now dominating the lives of everyone in Sierra Leone.

The western part of the country, including the capital Freetown where around a third of the population of more than six million lives, is bearing the brunt of the current upturn in cases. Authorities have instigated what they call the “Western Surge” to redouble efforts to try to keep the virus at bay.

Eunice Peacock, of the District Ebola Response Centre (DERC), admits they are “running to catch up” with the rate of the spread of the disease and would not be drawn on when it would be brought under control. One of the biggest problems is a refusal by what some claim is up to 80% of the population, a figure disputed by the government, to even acknowledge Ebola is real. One of the scores of operators at the UK-funded 117 Ebola telephone reporting line said many of the calls she takes are pranks or abusive. “They will use abusive language on you, they’ll say Ebola is lie, lie, you’re just taking money, most of them that is what they say,” she said. “They don’t believe. Most of the people they don’t believe in the Ebola stuff.”

The genuine calls get pushed on to the DERC where they are followed up either as live cases or burials. One of the burial units is run by the Red Cross and again funded by the UK. It aims to get everybody reported to it collected and buried in the central Ebola cemetery within 24 hours. Even those who have not died from the virus are collected and treated as if they had the disease – which means getting accurate figures for the number of Ebola deaths is difficult. We went out with Burial Team 7 into the Wellington area of Freetown – up steep, winding tracks where even four wheel drive vehicles struggled to pass.

There we went to the home of Alie Kamara, a 63-year-old father of 16, who had died on the morning we arrived. He had been ill for some time. His family said they had a certificate saying he was free of Ebola – but the body retrieval team still put on their protective suits to salvage Alie’s remains before disinfecting the house. His body was put into two sealed bags after a short Muslim blessing before being lifted on to the back of a truck to be taken to the graveyard. The team moved on to the next body. Here the daughter of 70-year old Allieu Koroma, Marie, was hysterically throwing herself to the ground. Again there was no suggestion of Ebola, though there were raised eyebrows when the dead man’s wife suggested he too had a medical certificate proving he was free of Ebola, but that “rats had eaten it”.

As with Alie, Allieu’s body was swabbed, double bagged and put on to the back of the truck. The bodies of two confirmed Ebola victims were then picked up from a hospital before the team travelled on to a graveyard. The World War II cemetery has been disused for years, but is now Freetown’s central Ebola burial site. There is row after row of freshly filled graves, side by side with row after row of empty ones awaiting a body. No sooner than Burial Team 7 placed Alie and Allieu into their respective final resting places, another group from a different aid organisation turned up to do the same for their Ebola dead.

Ebola outbreak still claiming lives – Leaving behind ‘Ebola Children’


The toll of a tragedy

The toll of a tragedy

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

As the first World gets ready to shop till we drop and have Christmas with family and friends and sit in comfy chairs watching a movie on whatever TV platforms we have we must look to Ebola still. The main stream media don’t report this now because it doesn’t effect outside West Africa, kinda sad when you think about it. The ‘Ebola Children’ have nothing, nowhere to go and are risk of Ebola still. Ebola is still live, CDC and W.H.O are both asking for caution and for people not to relax, it could still hit…

The Children of Ebola:

THE first reported case in the Ebola outbreak ravaging west Africa dates back to December 2013, in Guéckédou, a forested area of Guinea near the border with Liberia and Sierra Leone. Travellers took it across the border: by late March, Liberia had reported eight suspected cases and Sierra Leone six. By the end of June 759 people had been infected and 467 people had died from the disease, making this the worst ever Ebola outbreak. The numbers keep climbing. As of November 30th, 17,145 cases and 6,070 deaths had been reported worldwide, the vast majority of them in these same three countries. Many suspect these estimates are badly undercooked.

Danger is still there...or is it?

Danger is still there…or is it?

The outbreak continues to claim lives, but there are glimmers of good news. The number of new cases reported each week in Guinea and Liberia has somewhat stabilised (in Liberia, the flattening out has come after a decline in new cases between mid-September and mid-October). The pattern in Sierra Leone is much less encouraging. The chart above shows numbers from both the World Health Organisation’s regular situation reports and from patient databases, which tend to be more accurate but are less complete for recent weeks

Untitled3

The rate at which cases give rise to subsequent cases, which epidemiologists call R0, is the key variable in the spread of Ebola. For easily transmitted diseases R0 can be high; for measles it is 18. Ebola is much harder to catch: estimates of R0 in different parts of the outbreak range from 1.5 to 2.2. Although there are some signs that the virus is gradually being brought under control in Guinea and Liberia, any R0 above 1 is bad news. The very high mortality rate of the disease, estimated at 60-70% in this outbreak, means that Ebola can quickly claim more lives than other, more established killers.

20141206_woc998

The inadequacies of the health-care systems in the three most-affected countries help to explain how the Ebola outbreak got this far. Spain spends over $3,000 per person at purchasing-power parity on health care; for Sierra Leone, the figure is just under $300. The United States has 245 doctors per 100,000 people; Guinea has ten. The particular vulnerability of health-care workers to Ebola is therefore doubly tragic: as of November 30th there had been 622 cases among medical staff in the three west African countries, and 346 deaths.

Ebola: Quarantined Nurse Leaves Hospital. As New York kid, 5, Tests Negative


Ebola: Quarantined Nurse Leaves Hospital

Quarantined nurse leaves angry

Quarantined nurse leaves angry

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

A nurse who protested against being quarantined at a New Jersey hospital has been discharged. Kaci Hickox, who treated Ebola patients in West Africa but does not have any symptoms of the virus, threatened to sue over being kept in isolation. She was allowed to leave hospital on Monday and got into a private car bound for her home in Maine.  Once there, it will be up to local health officials to decide how to monitor her health for the duration of the incubation period, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said. The Doctors Without Borders worker had no symptoms when she arrived in Newark on Friday, but developed a fever that prompted putting her in isolation, the New Jersey Department of Health said in a statement.

Ms Hickox blasted officials over the decision, and her lawyer threatened a lawsuit, saying the quarantine violated her constitutional rights. But legal action seemed unlikely after Mr Christie announced she would be released. “She was quietly happy,” said lawyer Steven Hyman, who said he had spoken to the nurse by telephone. “She wants this part of her ordeal to be over. She wants to return to her life.” Three states – New York, New Jersey and Illinois – introduced the mandatory 21-day quarantine period for anyone who has been involved in treating Ebola patients in West Africa.

Other states, including Maryland, Virginia and Georgia, are also considering whether to impose the same regime. On Monday, the Pentagon announced that US troops returning from missions in Ebola-stricken West Africa are being placed in isolation for 21 days before returning home. “Out of an abundance of caution, the Army directed a small number of personnel, about a dozen, that recently returned to Italy, to be monitored in a separate location at their home station of Vicenza,” spokesman Colonel Steven Warren said. None of the soldiers have exhibited symptoms of the virus, Col Warren added.

Ebola Nurse To Sue Over Quarantine

Ebola Nurse To Sue Over Quarantine

Back in the US, the quarantine policies have come under criticism that they may discourage healthcare workers from travelling to West Africa to help in the fight against Ebola. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday recommended voluntary home quarantines for health workers returning from the region. The agency issued new guidelines that included four risk categories for those returning from West Africa. Under mounting pressure, the governors of New York and New Jersey said on Sunday evening that quarantined medical workers who did not show symptoms could be allowed to remain at home. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said: “We’re doing everything possible. Some people say we’re being too cautious – I’ll take that criticism.” Under the protocols, New York state will also pay compensation if quarantined workers are not paid by a volunteer organisation. The US quarantines followed the positive diagnosis of doctor Craig Spencer, who fell ill days after returning to his New York City home from treating Ebola patients in Guinea. He rode the subway and went bowling the night before he was admitted to hospital.

A five-year-old boy who was under observation at a New York hospital for possible Ebola symptoms has tested negative for the deadly virus. The youngster had returned to the US from Guinea at the weekend and had a low-grade fever, according to City Health Commissioner Dr Mary Travis. The child has “travelled to one of the three affected countries and has a fever, and that’s what triggers an assessment,” Dr Travis said. The New York Post reported that the boy had been vomiting and was transported from his home in the Bronx by emergency medical workers. He is being kept in isolation at New York’s Bellevue Hospital, and will remain there “out of an abundance of caution” until subsequent tests also come back negative, said the city’s Department of Health and NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation in a joint statement.

 “The chances of the average New Yorker contracting Ebola are extremely slim,” the statement added. Doctor Craig Spencer tested positive last week upon returning to the city from treating Ebola patients in Guinea. Dr Spencer, who went to the West African country with the Doctors Without Borders humanitarian group, is also being kept in isolation at Bellevue Hospital. In New Jersey, an American nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone is being released after being quarantined despite testing negative for the disease. SOME good news again.

W.H.O. – World ‘Losing The Battle’ Against Ebola – 60 Days To Save Humanity


The Experts are telling us this

By Shaun Gibson @ShaunyNews

The battle against the ebola outbreak that has killed more than 4,500 people is being lost, the head of the World Bank has warned. Speaking after the United Nations revealed it had received less than 40% of the nearly $1bn ($600m) it had requested to fight the deadly disease, World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim blamed a lack of international solidarity for the failure to stop its spread.

“We are losing the battle,” he told reporters in Paris.

“Certain countries are only worried about their own borders,” he told reporters in Paris.  International anxieties over the spread of Ebola were

highlighted as a cruise ship carrying a lab technician who worked with samples taken from an infected nurse in Dallas was stopped from docking in Belize and Mexico.  “It is the first time that this has happened, and it was decided the ship should not dock as a preventative measure against Ebola,” Erce Barron, port authority director in Quintana Roo, said.

Meanwhile, a vomiting woman outside the Pentagon sparked a scare in Washington, illustrating concerns in the US as questions continue to be asked about the infection of two nurses who treated a Liberian man who died at a Texas hospital. The Obama administration has appointed an ‘ebola czar’ to co-ordinate the government’s response to the outbreak.   It also asked three biological laboratories to submit plans for making the experimental drug ZMapp, which  ran out after it was given to several medical workers infected while working in West Africa. Although it has never been subjected to a clinical trial, the labs have been asked to submit budgets and timetables for production. As part of European efforts to stop the spread, France will start screening air passengers for Ebola today.

Air France flight attendants have also called for a halt to all flights from Guinea, one of the three hardest-hit countries. The daily Paris-Conakry flight “carries a serious risk of spreading the epidemic, particularly in our country,” a statement from the flight crew and commercial staff unions said. The United States, Britain and Canada have already launched screenings at airports for passengers from Ebola-hit areas.

Ebola: WHO lists 15 priority countries


163 people were on board the Air France plane which arrived in Madrid from Paris

By Shaun Gibson @ShaunyNews

The WHO has said it is focusing its attention on 15 countries to prevent the spread of Ebola, as the EU announced a review of its entry policies and the disease was reported in the last untouched area of Sierra Leone. Dr Isabelle Nuttall, the WHO’s global director, said on Thursday that cases were doubling every four weeks and that health officials were trying to prevent the disease spreading from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the worst-hit nations, to neighbouring countries and those with a strong travel and trade relationship.

Focus Countries:
Ivory Coast, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Senegal, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, CAR, DR Congo, Gambia, Ghana, Mauritania, Nigeria, South Sudan and Togo

Nuttall said: “The objective is to stop the transmission from occurring in these countries. They may not have a case but after one case we don’t want more. These countries need to be better prepared.

“This week we will cross 9,000 cases of Ebola and 4,500 deaths. The outbreak continues to hit health workers hard. So far 427 health care workers have been infected with Ebola and 236 have died.” The statement came as Sierra Leone reported two infections in the northern area of Koinadugu, the last untouched district in the country, despite strict safety precautions and limited contact with the rest of the country.

The EU also announced that it was reviewing its screening controls for airline passengers leaving west Africa.

After an emergency meeting of EU health ministers, EU health chief Tonio Borg said the WHO and the EU would look into “conflicting reports” about whether the screening in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea was good enough.  As alarm grew outside Africa over the disease’s potential spread, an Air France plane was isolated at Madrid after a male passenger who had travelled from Lagos in Nigera reported a fever and shivers.

The 163 passengers and crew were kept aboard the plane until the passenger was taken to hospital. The Spanish health ministry said it was treating the incident as a suspected case of Ebola. The man was one of four suspected cases of the disease in Spain. In the US, meanwhile, disease control officials admitted they had allowed a nurse to fly home after treating an Ebola victim. She later fell ill with the disease.

10,000 New Ebola Cases Per Week By Xmas: WHO


10,000 New Ebola Cases Per Week'

10,000 New Ebola Cases Per Week’

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

When W.H.O speak, you listen. World Health Organisation (W.H.O) Predict 10,000 cases a week in a month. CDC (Centre for Disease Control) and W.H.O have both said “We lost, Ebola will spread” They have admitted defeat to Ebola. Because it was a new strain at the VERY start people were being sent home with the Dr’s thinking they had bad Flu. I have been covering this story since the very first case. I believe it will kill 10’s of Millions. USA, Russia, China, India and others have done NOTHING to prepare for Ebola. This I think will be the countries to get hit worst. We are seeing and hearing news of Ebola from the USA. Getting news from China and Russia is harder. I am told by a reliable source China has over 100 cases. Confirmed or suspected I don’t know. But do prepare, do not think this will go away World. My country stopped flights and have had many drills in the event of Ebola hitting Scotland. We are ready, but Ebola will come if 1 mistake is made. http://shaunynews.com/2014/07/27/ebola-biologist-warn-of-early-stages-of-earths-sixth-mass-extinction-event/

There could be 10,000 new cases of ebola per week within two months, health officials have warned. The World Health Organisation (WHO) said 8,914 cases of ebola have now been reported in West Africa, including 4,447 deaths. WHO assistant director general Bruce Aylward told a press conference in Geneva that the total was expected to top 9,000 by the end of this week. He warned that the death rate from the current outbreak has now risen to 70%. It was previously estimated at about 50%. When asked how the situation would emerge over the next couple of months, he said: “It’s impossible to look into a glass ball and say we’re going to have this many or that many (cases) but we anticipate the number of cases occurring per week by that time to be somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 per week. W.H.O Video below

“It could be higher, it could be lower, but somewhere in that ball park.”  But he said there were some positive indications that the rate of spread of the disease may be slowing in some of the areas where it first struck. Some 95% of the cases are occurring in the same limited number of districts of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea which were affected a month ago, he said. Dr Aylward said it was “too early to say” whether this meant that the epidemic was slowing down and that the feared exponential growth in cases may not materialise. The plateau in reported infections may simply be due to limitations in the ability of authorities in the region to check and record cases, he said. Dr Aylward said there were “positive” signs of a slowing down in the rate of new cases in the epicentre of the outbreak in northern Liberia and Guinea, probably due to behaviour changes among the local population. But he warned: “This is ebola, this is a horrible, unforgiving disease – you’ve got to get to zero.

On Board Ebola Ship RFA Argus

“What gets you down to a level of control may not be – and usually isn’t – what gets you down to zero. With a bit of change in the behaviour of populations, with some burials happening safely, with a little bit more case management and a couple of new centres opening, you are going to slow this down very quickly. “That’s not going to stop ebola. To stop ebola, you’ve really got to have great contact tracing in place, same-day isolation. “Those pieces are not systematically in place in these places.”

Screening for Ebola at UK Borders

Screening for Ebola at UK Borders

Dr Aylward said that it was “concerning” that the disease was continuing to expand geographically within all three countries, with escalating case numbers in their capital cities. “In certain areas, we are seeing the disease coming down and it appears to be for the right reasons, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are going to get to zero,” he said. “Even more concerning is the geographical expansion and the disease in the capitals. “Any sense that the great effort that’s been kicked off over the last couple of months is already starting to see an impact would be really, really premature.”

**BREAKING** Ebola: Texas Hospital Worker Tests Positive


This was 5 days ago. As the news has said, we will know in a week to 10 days how badly this has spread

This was 3 days ago. As the news has said, we will know in a week to 10 days how badly this has spread

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

A hospital worker in Texas who treated a patient who died of ebola has tested positive for the disease. The unnamed person reported having a “low grade fever” on Friday and was then isolated, said officials. The worker had been caring for Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. He died on Wednesday. Mr Duncan, 42, was originally sent home from hospital despite showing symptoms of ebola, and was only re-admitted when his condition deteriorated.  His case sparked panic about the possible spread of the virus in the US despite assurances from President Barack Obama the chances of that happening were “extraordinarily low”. “We knew a second case could be a reality, and we’ve been preparing for this possibility,” said Dr David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department Of State Health Services.  “We are broadening our team in Dallas and working with extreme diligence to prevent further spread.” The US has begun screening patients entering through John F Kennedy airport in New York. It was the first of five airports to introduce the measures, brought in to give a layer of protection after the death of the first patient diagnosed with ebola on US soil.

Second CONFIRMED Case Of Ebola In The U.S. Texas hospital worker tests positive for Ebola

The four other airports – Newark, Chicago’s O’Hare, Washington Dulles and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International – are due to begin the checks next week. In Texas, health officials said they had interviewed the unnamed patient and were trying to identify contacts. They said people who had contact with the health care worker after symptoms emerged would be monitored.  Meanwhile, nurses and physician assistants in Liberia, one of the country’s worst hit by the outbreak, have threatened to go on strike over “hazard pay”. George Williams, leader of the National Health Workers Association, said members were demanding $700 (£436) per month in hazard pay on top of their monthly salaries, which are generally around $200 or $300. Monthly hazard pay is currently less than $500.  In Spain, an assistant nurse infected with ebola is showing signs of “slight improvement”. But Teresa Romero’s prognosis remains serious and further complications could not be ruled out, according to the country’s government.

USA – German Dr Accuses CDC Of Lies – Ebola Could Kill 10’s Of Millions And It Is Air born

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

Here is an American You Tube, well known user giving her thoughts from inside the USA where, Africa aside it has taken toll the Worst. I know many American people refuse to look at bad news or debate it and a sentence I hear a lot from American people is “What can I do” Take Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, Garlic, Nano Silver. The only way Ebola will not kill America in a year is if YOU the people take action. Place bleached towels on the entrance to your home, clean your hands with Hospital grade hand gel, wash a lot, and just be vigilant. So America you CAN help. The reason I am speaking to America here is you are very close to a PANDEMIC, this is 100x worse than an EPIDEMIC. America there are many cases not yet seen you as the Media are not scaring you and I can’t blame them as it is awful. I said 2 days before the main stream media. I reported it on Monday 6th https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/06/breaking-ebola-patient-in-dallas-has-died-reports/ This is Wednesday 8th when the media FINALLY ran the story http://abcnews.go.com/Health/texas-ebola-patient-thomas-eric-duncan-died/story?id=26045360 Many people think there are lies being told by the CDC and the video below is of a German Ebola expert telling the truth, it is reported. Basically a German based CDC Dr is accusing the CDC of understating the severity of Ebola Worldwide in a huge way – CDC = Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Ebola is hitting Worldwide and every day new cases are being reported. I said a week ago we will know in 21 days how bad this really is, so 10 to 14 days we will know, but the experts expect it to kill 50,000,000 (That is 50 Million) people, less or more depending on where you read, this is an average. AT LEAST WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW!

NEW YORK – A group of German medical doctors in a peer-reviewed medical journal article published by Oxford University Press have challenged a key assumption regarding the Ebola virus repeatedly asserted by Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.  The researchers found that a patient showing no symptoms of the disease can still transmit a virus like Ebola by air if droplets containing the virus are transmitted to another person by a sneeze or cough.

As WND reported Tuesday, the World Health Organization has admitted that “wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently could transmit the Ebola virus over a short distance to another nearby person.” WHO said it could happen when “virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing onto the mucus membranes or skin with cuts or abrasions of another person.” Still, WHO added a qualification, insisting the transmission of Ebola by sneezing or coughing is not within its definition of airborne transmission.

News broke Wednesday morning that the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., Thomas Eric Duncan, had died in Dallas. The victim’s home neighborhood in the Liberian capital, meanwhile, remained under quarantine. Later Wednesday, a Texas sheriff’s deputy was rushed to the hospital in Frisco, Texas, with Ebola symptoms after delivering a quarantine notice to the apartment where Duncan was staying. WND reported Wednesday Liberia is preventing journalists from reporting Ebola-related stories from health care centers in the country unless they obtain written permission from the government. The news came as the World Health Organization issued a statement warning that the officially reported decline in new cases in Liberia over the past three weeks “is unlikely to be genuine,” because problems with data gathering continue.

‘Not easily detected’

The German physicians, led by Dr. Timm H. Westhoff of the Department of Nephrology at the Carité Campus Benjamin Franklin in Berlin, noted in a virology blog published Feb. 12, 2009, that acute viral infections such as Ebola hemorrhagic fever may cause little or no clinical symptoms in a so-called “inapparent infection” yet may be contagious. “A well-known example is poliovirus: over 90% are without infections,” Westhoff and his colleagues continued. “During an inapparent infection, sufficient virus replication occurs in the host to induce antiviral antibodies, but not enough to cause disease. Such infections are important for the spread of infection, because they are not easily detected.” Westhoff and his colleagues then made the key point that individuals with an inapparent infection, showing no symptoms, can yet spread diseases such as polio.

“During the height of the polio epidemic in the United States, the quarantine of paralyzed patients had no effect on the spread of the disease, because 99 percent of the infected individuals had no symptoms and were leading normal lives spreading infection.” Westhoff and his colleagues also discussed the risk of spreading Ebola by sneezing or coughing.

“An example of a classic acute infection is uncomplicated influenza,” the medical doctors noted. “Virus particles are inhaled in droplets produced by sneezing or coughing, and begin replicating in ciliated columnar epithelial cells of the respiratory tract. As new infectious virions are produced, they spread to neighboring cells.” The point was clear: “Inapparent infections probably are important features of pathogens that are well-adapted to their hosts. They replicate sufficiently to endure the spread to new hosts, but not enough to damage the host and prevent transmission.” Westhoff and his associates conclude: “Acute viral infections are responsible for epidemics of disease involving millions of individuals each year, such as influenza and measles. When vaccines are not available, acute infections are difficult to control – most are complete by the time the patient feels ill, and the virus has already spread to another host.”

GERMAN DOCTOR : CDC LYING – DON’T HAVE TO HAVE SYMPTOMS TO SPREAD EBOLA; HHS – “THERE WILL BE MORE” AND IT IS AIRBORN, IT WILL KILL MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD. THIS WILL LAST MONTHS AND WE ‘HOPE’ WE CAN GET IT UNDER CONTROL

The German physicians published in 2008 the fundamental medical research that formed the basis for their blog comments, demonstrating kidney-transplant patients could carry the norovirus infection that is common in cases of acute gastroenteritis, even if the patient was asymptomatic. Westhoff’s 2008 study provided “the first evidence” that norovirus, typically a self-limiting disease of short duration, can cause chronic infection in renal transplant recipients,” even when there are no symptoms of acute gastroenteritis evident in the patient. Dr. Norman M. Balog, D.O., a board-certified family doctor practicing in Silver Spring, Maryland, brought the research of the German medical team to the attention of WND as evidence that the CDC’s Frieden could not prove his assertion air travel was safe as long as a person infected with Ebola were not showing symptoms. An infected person can go as long as 21 days in an incubation period before being infected.

“Dr. Freiden is either completely uninformed of this research,” Balog explained to WND in an exclusive telephone interview, “or he is deliberately lying because he does not want to panic the general public.” Balog pointed out that asymptomatic carriers of diseases infecting others is a phenomenon that has been widely documented in virology studies for decades. “There’s a good potential that on any given day a person you may shake hands with will have Strep Group A Streptococcus that causes sore throats,” he pointed out. “Shaking hands you take the risk you are going to get the Streptococcus virus, even if the person you shook hands with looked perfectly well.” Balog explained to WND much of the fundamental research on Ebola, including the conditions under which asymptomatic carriers of the disease can infect others, has yet to be conducted and reported in peer-reviewed medical journals.

“Dr. Freiden and the CDC have been reassuring the American public from the beginning of the current outbreak that we can contain and control Ebola, no problem; but the first assurances were three continents ago,” he pointed out. “Now we have Ebola in the United States and in Spain. Where is Ebola going to show up next?” Balog was critical of the steps taken so far by the CDC to contain the Ebola outbreak. “Ebola is spreading a lot faster than anybody expected,” he said. “But even today we are not stopping people from West Africa from boarding international air flights; health officials in Dallas did not put up a fence around Duncan’s apartment complex; and it took several days before Dallas health authorities found anyone qualified to clean up the vomit outside Duncan’s apartment. And then the workers just washed the vomit down into the town storm drains.” Balog pointed out the medical literature on virology commonly says asymptomatic but infected individuals can spread a disease to others before showing any signs of being sick. “We have medical models that say a person is capable of secreting a virus like Ebola in bodily fluids before the person displays symptoms of the disease,” he stressed, “and that medical evidence is simply being ignored by Dr. Frieden and the CDC when the public is told repeatedly it’s OK to let Ebola-infected people fly as long as they don’t have a fever.”

Ebola victims in African village ‘rise from the dead’ causing panic and fear among locals


Panic is spreading in an African village that Ebola patients are rising from the dead. This is a file picture of an Ebola victim

Panic is spreading in an African village that Ebola patients are rising from the dead. This is a file picture of an Ebola victim

Very odd story to say the least. I ACTUALLY read testimony a few days ago saying 2 woman who had died came back to life the following day and were, as they think in Africa “Zombies” There are always some truths to a story but I am struggling to find this truth!

Panic is spreading across an African community after reports that two Ebola victims have risen from the dead. The victims, both females in their 40s and 60s, died of the deadly virus in separate communities in Nimba County, Liberia. But according to reports in a local newspaper, the pair have reportedly been resurrected and are now walking among the living, causing panic and fear among locals. The New Dawn Nimba County said the late Dorris Quoi of Hope Village Community and the second victim identified as Ma Kebeh, in her late 60s, were about to be taken for burial when they rose from the dead.  Ma Kebeh had been indoors for two nights without food and medication before her alleged death. Nimba County has recently reported unusual news of Ebola cases, including one about a native doctor from the county, who claimed that he could cure infected victims, dying of the virus himself last week.

Since the Ebola outbreak in Nimba County, this is the first incident of dead victims resurrecting, the paper said. The Ebola outbreak has already killed around 2,800 people in five West African countries this year while an estimated 5,800 people have been infected with the virus, which has no known cure. America’s respected Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has predicted there could be up to 1.4million cases of deadly Ebola by the end of January.  The CDC, which successfully treated two US doctors infected with the disease, released the worrying report based on assumptions that cases have been dramatically under reported. The Centre’s scientists believe there may be as many as 21,000 reported and unreported cases in just Liberia and Sierra Leone alone

Governments seize colloidal silver being used to treat Ebola patients, says advocate


Ebola-Virus-Close-UpBy Shaun Gibson @ShaunyNews

(Natural News) Efforts to bring natural Ebola treatments to suffering West Africans have been squelched by the World Health Organization (WHO), which recently blocked multiple shipments of nanosilver solution measuring at 10 parts per million (ppm) from entering the region, leaving thousands to suffer needlessly.
WHO officials also reportedly called off a trial at an Ebola isolation ward where local health authorities were set to begin administering the silver, which the U.S. government previously demonstrated is highly effective against Ebola. WHO ordered the trial not to proceed despite the fact that it had earlier voiced support for experimental treatments.

Both WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have given their blessing to experimental therapies for Ebola, citing a lack of proven treatment options. But when it comes to using therapeutic silver, all bets are off, it seems.

Authorities block small shipment of nanosilver three times

According to the Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF), efforts to ship nanosilver into Sierra Leone have thus far failed. The organization has been trying to deliver a shipment of 200 bottles of nanosilver 10 ppm, and 100 tubes of nanosilver gel, to no avail. At this point, the shipment has been returned to the U.S. for the third time.

“That parcel, shipped Air Express at a cost of $3400 to Sierra Leone on August 20, never made it out of Paris,” reads an NSF action alert. “Air France has yet to find a reason for that. But it made its way back to the US again, apparently for the 3rd time without being delivered to Africa.”

People are dying, and bureaucrats are still playing politics with silver

Formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) reveal that antimicrobial silver solutions like the kind NSF is trying to deliver to Africa have proven benefits in fighting Ebola and other forms of hemorrhagic fever. Research conducted by the DOD and several other federal agencies back in 2008 confirmed this, though health regulators largely ignored it.

A presentation entitled “Silver Nanoparticles Neutralize Hemorrhagic Fever Viruses,” which revealed exactly what its name suggests, was buried and kept secret for years. In essence, investigators determined that simple silver solutions neutralize viruses like Arenavirus and Filovirus, both of which are related to Ebola.

Interestingly, the research was conducted with the backing of the DOD’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction. The presentation was given by researchers from the Applied Biotechnology Branch, 711th Human Performance Wing of the Air Force Research Laboratory.

But not a single mainstream media outlet reported on the presentation, and to this day its findings have been largely ignored by establishment health authorities. Sadly, this political quagmire — nanosilver is an obvious threat to pharmaceutical interests, and thus is being marginalized — is resulting in thousands of needless deaths in West Africa with no end in sight.
