Title: Ebola Update
Post by: SicSemperTyrannis on October 11, 2014, 07:36:54 PM
A couple pieces of information that I've come across first is that there was a doctor in Sierra Leone who is using a medicine called epivir and it's currently designed to treat people with HIV or with hepatitis C but 13 out of 15 ebola patients he used it on ended up surviving. Dosage info is 150mg per day for anyone 50kg or heavier (your average 10-12 year old). I'm looking for a reputable online pharmacy to buy some from.

The second piece of information is that underreporting of the Ebola virus is currently estimated at 2.5 times the actual number of cases. With this in mind the actual number infected is currently estimated at around 20 to 22,000 cases.

I ran a calculation with this number and if it continues doubling every 21 days it will reach 1 billion people infected approximately next August. If and when this becomes widespread in the United States the percentage of people dying will go up to around 70 to 80% because there won't be adequate medical care when the number of people getting the disease surpasses the number of hospital beds and doctors and nurses either get it and spread it or stop showing up for work to treat their loved ones at home. American society will grind to a halt when people stop sending their children to school for fear that they'll get the disease. I mean look at how scared everybody's been over one person in the United States dying from it.

My strong recommendation is to get nitrile gloves n95 masks and Tyvek suits now while you can as well as bleach and other supplies that you'll need in order to stay indoors with your family for at least three months.

Here's some new pieces as well:
1) http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/11/world/africa/officials-admit-a-defeat-by-ebola-in-sierra-leone.html?_r=0
TL;DR - be prepared to take care of your loved ones at home
2) http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-29584816
TL;DR - the script is changing and now they are saying expect "a few" cases in the UK

I still believe that they know exactly what they are doing. This isn't a new thing. The government loves to appear incompetent so then they can pass more laws and regulations in order to fix the problems with their alleged incompetence. This Ebola crisis is purely a show. I still doubt that there is a real illness at all. If there is a real illness it certainly isn't Ebola. However they will continue to ramp up the fear and anxiety in order to implement their NWO.
Title: Re: Ebola Update

This was just posted on Jim Stone's site. A Facebook post from someone in Ghana.

People in the Western World need to know what's happening here in West Africa. THEY ARE LYING!!! "Ebola" as a virus does NOT Exist and is NOT "Spread". The Red Cross has brought a disease to 4 specific countries for 4 specific reasons and it is only contracted by those who receive treatments and injections from the Red Cross. That is why Liberians and Nigerians have begun kicking the Red Cross out of their countries and reporting in the news the truth. Now bear with me:

REASONS:

Most people jump to "depopulation" which is no doubt always on the mind of the West when it comes to Africa. But I assure you Africa can NEVER be depopulated by killing 160 people a day when thousands are born per day. So the real reasons are much more tangible.

Reason 1: This vaccine implemented sickness being "called" Ebola was introduced into West Africa for the end goal of getting troops on the ground in Nigeria, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. If you remember America was just trying to get into Nigeria for "Boko Haram" #BULLSHIT but that fell apart when Nigerians started telling the truth. There ARE NO GIRLS MISSING. Global support fell through the floor, and a new reason was needed to get troops into Nigeria and steal the new oil reserves they have discovered.

Reason 2: Sierra Leone is the World's Largest Supplier of Diamonds. For the past 4 months they have been on strike, refusing to provide diamonds due to horrible working conditions and slave pay. The West will not pay a fair wage for the resources because the idea is to keep these people surviving on rice bags and foreign aid so that they remain a source of cheap slave labor forever. A reason was also needed to get troops on the ground in Sierra Leone to force an end to the diamond miners strikes. This is not the first time this has been done. When miners refuse to work troops are sent in and even if they have to kill and replace them all, the only desire is to get diamonds back flowing out of the country.
Of course to launch multiple campaigns to invade these countries separately would be way too fishy. But something like "Ebola" allows access to an entire area simultaneously...
Reason 3: In addition to stealing Nigerian oil, and forcing Sierra Leone back to mining, troops have also been sent in to FORCE vaccinations (Deadly "Ebola" Poison) onto those Africans who are not foolish enough to take them willingly.

3000 troops are being sent in to make sure that this "poison" continues to spread, because again it is only spread through vaccination. As more and more news articles are released as they have been in Liberia, informing the populous of the US lies and manipulation, more and more Africans are refusing to visit the Red Cross. Troops will force these vaccinations upon the people to ensure the visible appearance of an Ebola pandemic. In addition to this they will protect the Red Cross from the Liberians and Nigerians who have been rightfully ejecting them from their countries.

Reason 4: Last but not least, the APPEARANCE of this Ebola "pandemic" (should Americans not catch on) will be used to scare the countless millions into taking an "Ebola vaccine" which in reality is the pandemic. Already they have started with stories of how it has been brought to the U.S. and has appeared in Dallas, how white doctors were cured but black infected are not being allowed to be treated, etc.

ALL that will do is make blacks STRIVE to get the vaccine, because it appears that the "cure" is being held back from blacks. They will run out in droves to get it and then there will be serious problems. With all we have seen revealed about vaccines this year you would think we learned our lesson. All I can do is hope so, Because they rely on our ignorance to complete their agendas.

Ask yourself: If Ebola really was spread from person to person, instead of controlled spread through vaccination - then WHY would the CDC and the US Government continue to allow flights in and out of these countries with absolutely no regulation, Or At All? We have got to start thinking and sharing information globally because they do not give the true perspective of the people who live here in West Africa. They are lying for their own benefit and there aren't enough voices out there with a platform to help share our reality. Hundreds of thousands have been killed, paralyzed and disabled by these and other "new" vaccines all over the world and we are finally becoming aware of it. Now what will we do with all this information?

Title: Re: Ebola Update
Post by: SicSemperTyrannis on October 12, 2014, 04:54:48 PM
The thing I take from it is, this is an extremely easy to catch disease if health care professionals that know someone has it still are getting it, despite all their precautions. And that in turn means the average person on the street has basically no chance to avoid getting it even if they take a few precautions. Ebola is supposed to have level 4 containment, per the CDC. This coupled with the fact it can take so long for symptoms to show up are two factors that make me really uneasy about this disease.

Additionally, screening people by temperature when they can bring temp down with an ibuprofen or not even know they have it because they aren't exhibiting symptoms is almost going to make it a surety that we'll see more cases slip through as the numbers swell through this winter in west Africa.

My predictions:
January you will see at least 100,000 with the disease, probably closer to 250,000.
Then we'll see new pockets popping up in Europe, Asia, and North and South America as people flee from west Africa. Sometime in the Spring we will see the first medical martial law quarantine in the US.  Things look really scary around next summer. In 12 months this will be worldwide.

Correct.

Look, fellow patriots - Ebola is being spread by stupidity. Intentional or not, why question their motives? Who cares? It's their fault that it's spreading either way, isn't it? ???

Why is it so hard to let go of laying blame? I ask: "Who cares!?" Man made or not, spread intentionally or not, why does that matter at this point? Are we trying to place blame, or are we still concerned with preparing ourselves for what these assholes have done to us? ???

Why do we always have to believe that those "in control" (of what? I would ask ::)) are actually IN CONTROL; and we have to believe, for some reason, that everything that goes in this World is what THEY planned or what THEY wanted. WHY? :o  Why on Earth do we ascribe omnipotence to these incompetent jerks? Why is it so impossible to believe that 'they' are IN CONTROL OF NOTHING?! Sure, they do anything and everything they can to take advantage of every situation, regardless of the situation. So? That doesn't mean they CAUSED anything to happen - they are, in fact, 95% of the time, only reacting to what they didn't expect! Same as us! :o

I don't know how much this argument really matters or how much my opinion on any of it matters to anyone one way or the other, but I certainly don't think this is the right time to have a debate over who did what to how many.. - We've been on to these clowns for decades, haven't we? - Now, it's just simply time to be prepared.

Does anyone have any thoughts on colloidal silver?  Can it stop/prevent ebola if taken regularly?

Here are a few interesting resources: (I suppose it's entirely possible they're all just trying to sell you something though. So, I'll share what I found, but I'll vouch for none. ;))

http://thedeliberateagrarian.blogspot.com/2014/08/colloidal-silver-for-ebola.html

Quote
I'm not getting myself in a lather about ebola…. yet.  But I am looking at my supply of colloidal silver and thinking that I might better get a few more bottles.

Marlene and I have been taking colloidal silver for several years, primarily in the winter months, and I typically stock up on some bottles in the fall.

I'm persuaded that colloidal silver is a very effective medicine for all kinds of ailments involving bacteria, viruses and the like.

http://www.familyhealthnews.com/alternative-health-information/minerals-vitamins-proteins/colloidal-silver-fabulous-facts.html

Quote
It is impossible for single celled germs to mutate into silver resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to Colloidal Silver ever develops. Also, Colloidal Silver cannot interact or interfere with other medicine being taken.

Inside the body, silver forms no toxic compounds nor reacts with anything other than a germ's oxygen metabolization. Colloidal Silver is truly a safe, natural remedy for many of mankind's ills. It would appear highly unlikely that even germ warfare agents could survive an encounter with Colloidal Silver.

Since viruses like Ebola and Hunta, or even the dreaded "flesh-eating bacteria" are in the end merely hapless viruses and bacteria. To top it off Colloidal Silver is non-toxic, making it safe for both children and adults, as well as pets. In short, anything bigger than a one-cell animal
seems to like it.

Quote
8/1/14 - I am bringing this back up to the top, since it appears that people who have the virus are being brought here to the U.S. for some bizarre reason!

The Ebola Virus has been in the news recently.  It is claimed there is an epidemic of it and it is spreading.

One thing I know for sure is Colloidal Silver is something everyone should have.  It is easy to make yourself.

When you make it yourself it is Ion Silver.  The silver is suspended in the water in minute particles, through the positive and negative reactions.

I don't think colloidal silver does anything. I think it's the "forsythia" of this scare (if you don't get the reference, watch Contagion).

The first thing that doubles your Chances to survive if you get it is hydration and electrolyte balance. So buy a couple cans of powdered Gatorade at Costco or learn to make your own with salt and sugar.

The second thing that improves your chances (though this one is different for everyone) is keeping your immune system tough by getting good sleep, eating healthy, and exercising.

No one really wants to hear this in America though. We all want a magic pill that'll save us. I know I'm thinking about epivir but that's because of blocking the cytokine reaction I've read about. What'll probably end up saving me in the end is hydration and my own immune system. Hope they are up to the task!

This interview is with an alleged survivor of Ebola named Dr Richard Sacra. I have two observations about this.

2. He seems to hesitate at the 1:02 mark when he says "On day six of my.......illness" almost like he had trouble spitting out the lie.

I don't think is all that simple...  ???

Richard Sacra, a Massachusetts physician who was infected with Ebola in Liberia, was released from the same Nebraska hospital on Sept. 25 after being treated there for three weeks. Dr. Sacra was given a research drug called TKM-Ebola, which inhibits the virus’ ability to replicate and was also treated with plasma from another Ebola survivor, according to the hospital.

Concern over Dr. Sacra’s condition arose over the weekend when he was admitted with a respiratory infection to the UMass Memorial Medical Center, but laboratory tests done by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control found Mr. Sacra didn’t have a recurrence of the Ebola virus.

Mr. Mukpo had been working in Liberia for two years with a nonprofit organization and then returned in September as a freelance journalist. His parents tried to dissuade him, but Mr. Mukpo had made a strong connection with the Liberian people and “felt compelled to go back,” said his father, Mitchell Levy, director of Rhode Island Hospital’s division of critical care, pulmonary and sleep medicine. Dr. Levy is also a professor of medicine at Brown University in Providence, R.I.

NBC News, which hired Mr. Mukpo as a cameraman on Sept. 30, the day before his symptoms developed, reported that it was helping the family to arrange for his transport home Sunday by air ambulance.

Mr. Mukpo has said he wasn’t sure how he contracted the virus. He said that while on assignment for another outlet, he was lightly splashed in the face by a liquid he couldn’t identify as he helped a taxi driver spray disinfectant on a car that had carried an Ebola patient.  ???

This is huge news because it affects every quarantine done everywhere. If people think they're clear after a 21 day quarantine and then come down with symptoms a week or two after, they'll think they have a regular cold or flu and probably go to work anyways, take a bus, fly in a plane, etc.

The petition system was never meant to give the people any say or power of any kind what-so-ever. The system was put there to give you the illusion that you have some say. You don't. You never did.

Re: Ebola Update
Guess who's afraid of flying  :-[

More than 2,150 flights operated by leading German air carrier Lufthansa have been affected by a 35-hour strike that began on Monday, just hours after a weekend of devastating rail strikes across the country.

Lufthansa says 200,000 people have been hit by the strike, although the company has assured it has found replacement pilots for around a third of the canceled flights. Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) which numbers just over half of the airline’s 10,000 pilots, called the eighth strike this year, which is impacting short-haul flights on Monday, and long-haul on Tuesday.

VC is demanding that Europe’s biggest airline maintain its current employment protocols, which allow pilots to retire at 55 on 60 percent of their salary, before claiming a full pension at 65.

“Regrettably Lufthansa has not acted on the compromise proposals of VC after seven strikes now since April this year and is stonewalling," said a statement from the union.  :-[

More than 2,150 flights operated by leading German air carrier Lufthansa have been affected by a 35-hour strike that began on Monday, just hours after a weekend of devastating rail strikes across the country.

Lufthansa says 200,000 people have been hit by the strike, although the company has assured it has found replacement pilots for around a third of the canceled flights. Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) which numbers just over half of the airline’s 10,000 pilots, called the eighth strike this year, which is impacting short-haul flights on Monday, and long-haul on Tuesday.

VC is demanding that Europe’s biggest airline maintain its current employment protocols, which allow pilots to retire at 55 on 60 percent of their salary, before claiming a full pension at 65.

“Regrettably Lufthansa has not acted on the compromise proposals of VC after seven strikes now since April this year and is stonewalling," said a statement from the union.

Keeping an eye on these. I was expecting a crush of wealthier west Africans trying to escape before the pressure from the citizens forces obola to ban air travel completely. He'll probably do it just before midterm elections to boost the dems chances of re-election but in the meantime were temperature screening foreign nationals who might not get a fever for another 40 days.

And that's not even taking into account the fact that purposely infected radical Mus lim terr orists have probably already slipped through from Mexico.

Summary of the eRumor: 
A video on the Internet from an unnamed person that suggests that a behind-the-scenes look at the languages Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew reveals that in the Bible in Luke 10:18, Jesus may have revealed the name of the Antichrist. The video suggests that it’s Barack Obama.
 
The Truth: 
The Antichrist, according to many Christian teachers, is a person who will fulfill Biblical prophesy by becoming a powerful leader in the world but will be an evil ruler, a false messiah, a person who is either against or the opposite of Jesus Christ.

TuthOrFiction.com has not found any scholar of Greek, Aramaic, or Hebrew who can vouch for the interpretation of Luke 10:18 pointing to Barack Obama.

The video is based entirely on the verse in Luke 10:18, in which Jesus says, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” KJV

I watched a video tonight on the history channel about the bubonic plague in the 1300s. I learned some things that I think will definitely apply during the ebola pandemic.

1) Bubonic plague spread first in densely populated urban centers and a long major trade routes. We're seeing the same thing today in the modern world by seeing ebola carried by car (towards the Ivory Coast) and airplane (to Europe and the USA). The plague needs a certain population density in order to really take off and what strikes me is pretty much the most densely urban areas are the ones that the United States is still allowing flights into: Washington DC, Chicago, New York, etc. Ebola will totally spread in places like these.

2) The second thing that I learned from watching the show is that people really look for something or someone to blame. In Europe they burned thousands of Jews at the stake and also there was a group of religious zealots called the flagellates (because they would whip themselves). So we'll probably see religious fruitcakes pop up left and right claiming that God is making Ebola spread because of something humans have done and we may also see certain ethnic groups targeted.

3) The third thing that I learned was that the upper-class like knights survived a little bit more frequently than the peasants because they were rich enough to be able to move out of town and kind of hole up in the countryside. This is kind of in the modern-day like having a bug out retreat but it didn't necessarily mean that you would be able to stay there indefinitely. After the plague was over (and it took most of a decade to burn out) all of the rich people had to start farming the land themselves because they were so few peasants left. Most had never done that kind of work before. So do yourself a favor and start a garden ASAP. Learn what grows where you live. Build raised beds and irrigation off of 50 gallon rain barrels that collect from your drain spouts.

4) There were military groups that would come through and pillage the houses of the dead, rape and kill, sometimes because they were hungry, sometimes because they were depressed about being one of the 25% who lived through it and sometimes on order from a foreign country looking to score during anyone when their enemies were down and out. You need to have several ways to defend yourself, your family and your food stash. You need to train with your loved ones on what to do if a person or group comes into your neighborhood and starts going house to house. You need to train with your weapon once a month or more. Have lots of ammo pre-stockpiled in a few locations in your home. The time to train is not when they have your wife and kid tied to a chair in the next room.

The Big Apple may have its first case of Ebola.

A 33-year-old Doctors Without Borders physician who treated Ebola patients in Guinea and returned to New York City 10 days ago was rushed in an ambulance with police escorts from his Harlem home to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday, sources said.

Craig Spencer was suffering from Ebola-like symptoms — a 103-degree fever and nausea, sources said.

Statement On Suspect Ebola Case From Dr. Howard Zucker, Acting Commissioner, New York State Department of Health

http://www.health.ny.gov/press/releases/2014/2014-10-23_ebola_statement.htm

Quote
The state Department of Health is closely monitoring this potential case and is working with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure that all appropriate protocols are being followed to protect public health and safety.

This patient is undergoing testing at Bellevue Hospital, which is one of the eight hospitals statewide that Governor Cuomo designated earlier this month as part of his Ebola Preparedness Plan to handle potential cases.

That facility is prepared and equipped for theisolation, identification, and treatment of any such patients.

Preliminary test results are expected to be completed in the next 12 hours.

It is important to remember that the symptoms exhibited by this patient can be indicative of other illnesses and that there is no confirmed case at this time.

Mali Has Become The 6th West African Nation With Ebola

Quote
Mali's health minister says the West African country has confirmed its first case of Ebola.

The announcement made on Malian state television Thursday evening by Ousmane Kone said that the patient was a 2-year-old girl who had come from neighboring Guinea.

The child was brought to a hospital in the Malian town of Kayes on Wednesday, and her blood sample tested positive for the virus.

Mali becomes the sixth West African country to report an Ebola case — though nearly all the cases and deaths have occurred in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

Senegal and Nigeria had imported cases though both have now been declared Ebola-free.

The World Health Organization says the disease has killed at least 4,877 people and infected 9,936.

You're right.

If this doctor was really going to self-quarantine, what the hell was he doing out taking Uber cars around and sticking his dirty fingers in bowling balls?  He should be in a room out in the countryside for the next 42 days.

There's almost no way to contact trace everyone who's possibly been exposed from him and in a place like New York, this could get out of hand really quickly. 

With the long ass incubation period people won't even think it could be ebola if they come down with flu-like symptoms in two to six weeks.  And then they infect more people, etc.

I said it earlier in this thread and I'll say it again.  I think we are seeing the beginnings of the modern bubonic plague.  If things keep on as they are, a year from now most of the people in the world will have it.  My guess is the NIH, CDC and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will step in when a few thousand people in developed countries have died and offer up a cure they've had all along... and reap huge profits.  Bill Gates would not have spent 565 million dollars to develop a cure for this unless he was going to get his money back.

An abstract on ebola forecast...

http://currents.plos.org/outbreaks/article/obk-14-0043-modeling-the-impact-of-interventions-on-an-epidemic-of-ebola-in-sierra-leone-and-liberia/

Quote

The deterministic model fit well for both Liberia and Sierra Leone, with the predicted curve of cumulative cases following the reported number of cases in both countries. The end-of-year forecast shows a range of uncertainty for each country of several thousand cases between the most optimistic and pessimistic scenarios. However, the number of cumulative cases is forecast to continue rising extremely rapidly, with the bulk of the epidemic yet to come (Figure 2). This suggests an extremely poor outlook for the course of the epidemic without intensive interventions.

In the baseline end-of-year forecasts for both Sierra Leone and Liberia, person-to-person transmission within the community made up the bulk of transmission events, with a median (IQR: Interquartile Range) of 117,877 (115,100– 120,585) cases arising from the community in the Liberia forecast and 30,611 (29,667 – 31,857) in the forecast for Sierra Leone. Both had fewer hospital transmissions – 21,533 (21,025 – 21,534) in Liberia and 5,474 (5,306 – 5,710) in Sierra Leone, than transmissions arising from funerals – 35,993 (35,163 – 36,789) in Liberia and 9,768 (9,470 – 10,137) in Sierra Leone. For brevity, only the results of the Liberia model are reported below, with the results from Sierra Leone in the electronic supplement. The epidemic trajectories for all modeled interventions may also be found in the Web Material.

Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the Governor of Rivers State, is sure that a successful fight against Ebola in Nigeria is a lie. He bases his claim on the fact that the Federal Government states that Rivers and Lagos are free of the deadly virus. However, in Amaechi’s opinion, these states are actually hit by Ebola outbreak.

Has anyone else been hearing rumors of lots of people across the U.S. with ebola symptoms (bleeding out of orifices and high fever) being diagnosed by doctors and then the patients get "disappeared"?  I talked to a family member today and he heard of this happening in Ohio. And I saw on infowars that there was a leak that they had an ebola patient in north or South Carolina but the hospital wouldn't answer yes or no. My gut feeling is that ebola is already here in a much more widespread way than we are being told. And the news is being suppressed because the government is trying to prevent a panic as they make a last ditch effort to buy up as many hazmat suits and stockpile as many MREs as they can before it all goes to shit.

10,121 cases x 2.9 (the average underreporting multiplier) = 29,843 cases

This would necessitate 20,890 beds in order to have 70% in hospital beds and bring the pandemic under control.

Currently the U.S. only has a few hundred soldiers in west Africa and the first field hospital isn't even finished and when it opens in a week or two it will only take about 25 people.

By that point we'll be around 50-60,000 cases.

This is utterly out of control.

If you haven't, buy a water filter.  I recommend a sawyer point zero two. It filters 1 million gallons of water. Also recommend a silverfire rocket stove. Portable, burns biomass and charcoal, almost no smoke and higher quality than stovetec. Get some extra n95 masks, nitrile gloves, tyvek body suits, and whatever else you think you might need to bug in for a few months.

If ebola did get to the point of being utterly out of control the death toll would be rising faster than there are people left to bury the dead, this would make large towns and big cities uninhabitable and impassable with typhoid, cholera, salmonella, ecoli...etc running rampant, with no local source of uncontaminated water people would drink whatever was at hand out of sheer thirst driven desperation spreading diseases further.

Such a thing has happened in the past, people of European descent are the descended from the survivors of the great plagues that ravaged Europe from the 14th to the 19th centuries.

If Ebola does get to this point of utterly out of control then those of us who do not have a natural immunity to it are doomed, and some of those who survive will become carriers of it contaminating anyone they come across who isn't immune, yet managed to stay away from heavily infected area's.

Lets hope is doesn't get utterly out of control and they find another method of depopulation in their agenda somewhere.

At its current progression it will be ubiquitous by next September.

http://m.weeklystandard.com/articles/six-reasons-panic_816387.html?page=1

Quote
As a rule, one should not panic at whatever crisis has momentarily fixed the attention of cable news producers. But the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which has migrated to both Europe and America, may be the exception that proves the rule. There are at least six reasons that a controlled, informed panic might be in order.
 
(1) Start with what we know, and don’t know, about the virus. Officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other government agencies claim that contracting Ebola is relatively difficult because the virus is only transmittable by direct contact with bodily fluids from an infected person who has become symptomatic. Which means that, in theory, you can’t get Ebola by riding in the elevator with someone who is carrying the virus, because Ebola is not airborne.

This sounds reassuring. Except that it might not be true. There are four strains of the Ebola virus that have caused outbreaks in human populations. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the current outbreak (known as Guinean EBOV, because it originated in Meliandou, Guinea, in late November 2013) is a separate clade “in a sister relationship with other known EBOV strains.” Meaning that this Ebola is related to, but genetically distinct from, previous known strains, and thus may have distinct mechanisms of transmission.

Not everyone is convinced that this Ebola isn’t airborne. Last month, the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy published an article arguing that the current Ebola has “unclear modes of transmission” and that “there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks.”

And even if this Ebola isn’t airborne right now, it might become so in the future. Viruses mutate and evolve in the wild, and the population of infected Ebola carriers is now bigger than it has been at any point in history—meaning that the pool for potential mutations is larger than it has ever been. As Dr. Philip K. Russell, a virologist who oversaw Ebola research while heading the U.S. Army’s Medical Research and Development Command, explained to the Los Angeles Times last week, I see the reasons to dampen down public fears. But scientifically, we’re in the middle of the first experiment of multiple, serial passages of Ebola virus in man. .  .  . God knows what this virus is going to look like. I don’t.

In August, Science magazine published a survey conducted by 58 medical professionals working in African epidemiology. They traced the origin and spread of the virus with remarkable precision—for instance, they discovered that it crossed the border from Guinea into Sierra Leone at the funeral of a “traditional healer” who had treated Ebola victims. In just the first six months of tracking the virus, the team identified more than 100 mutated forms of it.

Yet what’s really scary is how robust the already-established transmission mechanisms are. Have you ever wondered why Ebola protocols call for washing down infected surfaces with chlorine? Because the virus can survive for up to three weeks on a dry surface.

How robust is transmission? Look at the health care workers who have contracted it. When Nina Pham, the Dallas nurse who was part of the team caring for Liberian national Thomas Duncan, contracted Ebola, the CDC quickly blamed her for “breaching protocol.” But to the extent that we have effective protocols for shielding people from Ebola, they’re so complex that even trained professionals, who are keenly aware that their lives are on the line, can make mistakes.

By the by, that Science article written by 58 medical professionals tracing the emergence of Ebola—5 of them died from Ebola before it was published.

(2) General infection rates are terrifying, too. In epidemiology, you measure the “R0,” or “reproduction number” of a virus; that is, how many new infections each infected person causes. When R0 is greater than 1, the virus is spreading through a population. When it’s below 1, the contamination is receding. In September the World Health Organization’s Ebola Response Team estimated the R0 to be at 1.71 in Guinea and 2.02 in Sierra Leone. Since then, it seems to have risen so that the average in West Africa is about 2.0. In September the WHO estimated that by October 20, there would be 3,000 total cases in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. As of October 7, the count was 8,376.

In other words, rather than catching up with Ebola, we’re falling further behind. And we’re likely to continue falling behind, because physical and human resources do not scale virally. In order to stop the spread of Ebola, the reproduction number needs to be more than halved from its current rate. Yet reducing the reproduction number only gets harder as the total number of cases increases, because each case requires resources—facilities, beds, doctors, nurses, decontamination, and secure burials—which are already lagging well behind need. The latest WHO projections suggest that by December 1 we are likely to see 10,000 new cases in West Africa per week, at which point the virus could begin spreading geographically within the continent as it nears the border with Ivory Coast.

Thus far, officials have insisted that it will be different in America. On September 30, CDC director Thomas Frieden confirmed the first case of Ebola in the United States, the aforementioned Thomas Duncan. Frieden then declared, “We will stop Ebola in its tracks in the U.S. .  .  . The bottom line here is that I have no doubt that we will control this importation, or this case of Ebola, so that it does not spread widely in this country.”

The word “widely” is key. Because despite the fact that Duncan was a lone man under scrupulous, first-world care, with the eyes of the entire nation on him, his R0 was 2, just like that of your average Liberian Ebola victim. One carrier; two infections. He passed the virus to nurse Pham and to another hospital worker, Amber Joy Vinson, who flew from Cleveland to Dallas with a low-grade fever before being diagnosed.
 
(3) Do you really want to be scared? What’s to stop a jihadist from going to Liberia, getting himself infected, and then flying to New York and riding the subway until he keels over? This is just the biological warfare version of a suicide bomb. Can you imagine the consequences if someone with Ebola vomited in a New York City subway car? A flight from Roberts International in Monrovia to JFK in New York is less than $2,000, meaning that the planning and infrastructure needed for such an attack is relatively trivial. This scenario may be highly unlikely. But so were the September 11 attacks and the Richard Reid attempted shoe bombing, both of which resulted in the creation of a permanent security apparatus around airports. We take drastic precautions all the time, if the potential losses are serious enough, so long as officials are paying attention to the threat.

(4) Let’s put aside the Ebola-as-weapon scenario—some things are too depressing to contemplate at length—and look at the range of scenarios for what we have in front of us, from best-case to worst-case. The epidemiological protocols for containing Ebola rest on four pillars: contact tracing, case isolation, safe burial, and effective public information. On October 14, the New York Times reported that in Liberia, with “only” 4,000 cases, “Schools have shut down, elections have been postponed, mining and logging companies have withdrawn, farmers have abandoned their fields.” Which means that the baseline for “best-case” is already awful.

In September, the CDC ran a series of models on the spread of the virus and came up with a best-case scenario in which, by January 2015, Liberia alone would have a cumulative 11,000 to 27,000 cases. That’s in a world where all of the aid and personnel gets where it needs to be, the resident population behaves rationally, and everything breaks their way. The worst-case scenario envisioned by the model is anywhere from 537,000 to 1,367,000 cases by January. Just in Liberia. With the fever still raging out of control.

By which point, all might well be lost. Anthony Banbury is coordinating the response from the United Nations, which, whatever its many shortcomings, is probably the ideal organization to take the lead on Ebola. Banbury’s view is chilling: “The WHO advises within 60 days we must ensure 70 percent of infected people are in a care facility and 70 percent of burials are done without causing further infection. .  .  . We either stop Ebola now or we face an entirely unprecedented situation for which we do not have a plan [emphasis added]”.

What’s terrifying about the worst-case scenario isn’t just the scale of human devastation and misery. It’s that the various state actors and the official health establishment have already been overwhelmed with infections in only the four-digit range. And if the four pillars—contact tracing, case isolation, safe burial, and effective public information—fail, no one seems to have even a theoretical plan for what to do.

(5) And by the way, things could get worse. All of those worst-case projections assume that the virus stays contained in a relatively small area of West Africa, which, with a million people infected, would be highly unlikely. What happens if and when the virus starts leaking out to other parts of the world?

Marine Corps General John F. Kelly talked about Ebola at the National Defense University two weeks ago and mused about what would happen if Ebola reached Haiti or Central America, which have relatively easy access to America. “If it breaks out, it’s literally ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States,” Kelly said. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.”

It isn’t crazy to see how a health crisis could beget all sorts of other crises, from humanitarian, to economic, to political, to existential. If you think about Ebola and mutation and aerosolization and R0 for too long, you start to get visions of Mad Max cruising the postapocalyptic landscape with Katniss Everdeen at his side.

(6) While we’re on the subject of political crisis, it’s worth noting that the politics of Ebola are uncertain and dangerous to everyone involved. Thus far, there’s been only one serious political clash over Ebola, and that’s concerning the banning of flights to and from the infected countries in West Africa. The Obama administration refuses to countenance such a move, with the CDC’s Frieden flatly calling it “wrong”:  A travel ban is not the right answer. It’s simply not feasible to build a wall—virtual or real—around a community, city, or country. A travel ban would essentially quarantine the more than 22 million people that make up the combined populations of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.

When a wildfire breaks out we don’t fence it off. We go in to extinguish it before one of the random sparks sets off another outbreak somewhere else.

We don’t want to isolate parts of the world, or people who aren’t sick, because that’s going to drive patients with Ebola underground, making it infinitely more difficult to address the outbreak. .  .  .
Importantly, isolating countries won’t keep Ebola contained and away from American shores. Paradoxically, it will increase the risk that Ebola will spread in those countries and to other countries, and that we will have more patients who develop Ebola in the U.S.

Not terribly convincing, is it? Wildfires, in fact, are often fought by using controlled burns and trench digging to establish perimeters. And it’s a straw-man argument to say that a flight ban wouldn’t keep Ebola fully contained. No one says it would. But by definition, it would help slow the spread of the virus. If there had been a travel ban in place, Thomas Duncan would have likely reached the same sad fate—but without infecting two Americans and setting the virus loose in North America. And it’s difficult to follow the logic by which banning travel from infected countries would create more infections in the United States, as Frieden insists. This is not a paradox; it’s magical thinking.

Frieden’s entire argument is so strange—and so at odds with what other epidemiologists prescribe—that it can only be explained by one of two causes: catastrophic incompetence or a prior ideological commitment. The latter, in this case, might well be the larger issue of immigration.

Ebola has the potential to reshuffle American attitudes to immigration. If you agree to seal the borders to mitigate the risks from Ebola, you’re implicitly rejecting the “open borders” mindset and admitting that there are cases in which government has a duty to protect citizens from outsiders. Some people on the left admit to seeing this as the thin end of the wedge. Writing in the New Yorker, Michael Specter lamented, “Several politicians, like Governor Bobby Jindal, of Louisiana, have turned the epidemic into fodder for their campaign to halt immigration.” And that sort of thing just can’t be allowed.

What would happen in the event of an Ebola outbreak in Latin America? Then America would have to worry about masses of uninfected immigrants surging across the border—not to mention carriers of the virus. And if we had decided it was okay to cut off flights from West Africa, would we decide it was okay to try to seal the Southern border too? You can see how the entire immigration project might start to come apart.

So for now, the Obama administration will insist on keeping travel open between infected countries and the West and hope that they, and we, get lucky.

At a deeper level, the Ebola outbreak is a crisis not for Obama and his administration, but for elite institutions. Because once more they have been exposed as either corrupt, incompetent, or both. On September 16, as he was trying to downplay the threat posed by Ebola, President Obama insisted that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Less then two weeks later, there was an Ebola outbreak in the United States.

The CDC’s Frieden—who is an Obama appointee—has been almost comically oafish. On September 30, -Frieden declared, “We’re stopping it in its tracks in this country.” On October 13, he said, “We’re concerned, and unfortunately would not be surprised if we did see additional cases.” The next day he admitted that the CDC hadn’t taken the first infection seriously enough: “I wish we had put a team like this on the ground the day the patient, the first patient, was diagnosed,” he said. “That might have prevented this infection. But we will do that from today onward with any case, anywhere in the U.S. .  .  . We could have sent a more robust hospital infection-control team and been more hands-on with the hospital from Day One.”

The day after that Frieden was asked during a press conference if you could contract Ebola by sitting next to someone on a bus—a question prompted by a statement from President Obama the week before, when he declared that you can’t get Ebola “through casual contact, like sitting next to someone on a bus.”

Frieden answered: “I think there are two different parts of that equation. The first is, if you’re a member of the traveling public and are healthy, should you be worried that you might have gotten it by sitting next to someone? And the answer is no. Second, if you are sick and you may have Ebola, should you get on a bus? And the answer to that is also no. You might become ill, you might have a problem that exposes someone around you.”

Go ahead and read that again.

We have arrived at a moment with our elite institutions where it is impossible to distinguish incompetence from willful misdirection. This can only compound an already dangerous situation.

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/6078072

An earlier version of the page is still available in Google's cache. It said that while Ebola is not "airborne" like chickenpox or tuberculosis, it can travel a few feet in the air inside droplets emitted when someone coughs or sneezes.

"A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose," the document said.

The CDC has also changed an Ebola Q&A, deleting the below question about coughing and sneezing (which are not typical Ebola symptoms):

Can Ebola spread by coughing? By sneezing?
Unlike respiratory illnesses like measles or chickenpox, which can be transmitted by virus particles that remain suspended in the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes, Ebola is transmitted by direct contact with body fluids of a person who has symptoms of Ebola disease. Although coughing and sneezing are not common symptoms of Ebola, if a symptomatic patient with Ebola coughs or sneezes on someone, and saliva or mucus come into contact with that person’s eyes, nose or mouth, these fluids may transmit the disease.

The version of the Q&A still online notes that Ebola can survive on doorknobs for several hours. The removed question is available in Google's cache from Oct. 29.

http://currents.plos.org/outbreaks/article/modeling-the-impact-of-interventions-on-an-epidemic-of-ebola-in-sierra-leone-and-liberia/

Updated November 6th.

Quote
Background: An Ebola outbreak of unparalleled size is currently affecting several countries in West Africa, and international efforts to control the outbreak are underway. However, the efficacy of these interventions, and their likely impact on an Ebola epidemic of this size, is unknown. Forecasting and simulation of these interventions may inform public health efforts.

Methods: We use existing data from Liberia and Sierra Leone to parameterize a mathematical model of Ebola and use this model to forecast the progression of the epidemic, as well as the efficacy of several interventions, including increased contact tracing, improved infection control practices, the use of a hypothetical pharmaceutical intervention to improve survival in hospitalized patients.

Findings: Model forecasts until Dec. 31, 2014 show an increasingly severe epidemic with no sign of having reached a peak. Modeling results suggest that increased contact tracing, improved infection control, or a combination of the two can have a substantial impact on the number of Ebola cases, but these interventions are not sufficient to halt the progress of the epidemic. The hypothetical pharmaceutical intervention, while impacting mortality, had a smaller effect on the forecasted trajectory of the epidemic.

Interpretation: Near-term, practical interventions to address the ongoing Ebola epidemic may have a beneficial impact on public health, but they will not result in the immediate halting, or even obvious slowing of the epidemic. A long-term commitment of resources and support will be necessary to address the outbreak.

 Three other things:

1) with the puppet show elections over with and ferguson on the news don't you find it odd that he number of deaths has purportedly stayed 5000 for the last few weeks?  It's quite obvious there is a media black out going on. Probably to keep the sheeple buying big screen tvs on Black Friday at Walmart on fake data about the economy booming.

2) Almost all the pieces are in position for a world war - Russia, Ukraine, Syria, China. Will the U.S. allow the spread of ebola so they can use it to scapegoat the stock market crash? Or will they false flag attack the stock market and then scapegoat Russia and/or China and use it as an excuse to go to war?

3) In case you didn't read it on the news, that African national surgeon they brought into the U.S. died within a day of arriving. Which begs the question: if he was so sick that he couldn't even walk off the plane then why was he brought here?  If I didn't know any better I'd say it almost feels like they are importing sick people to spread it.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/11/19/us-health-ebola-who-idUSKCN0J31ZU20141119

"The toll in the Ebola epidemic has risen to 5,420 deaths out of 15,145 cases in eight countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday, with transmission of the deadly virus still "intense and widespread" in Sierra Leone.  The figures, through Nov. 16, represent a jump of 243 deaths and 732 cases since those issued last Friday, and cases continue to be under-reported, the WHO said in its latest update."

If my math is correct, that's 732 cases divided by 5 days.  At 146.4 new cases per day, that's 1024 new cases per week.  Now bear in mind the 2.5X underreporting factor.  So, we're really talking a current spread of around 2500 per week.  And with it doubling every 21 days, that means by Dec 10 it'll be 5000 new cases per week and by Dec 31 it'll be 10000 new cases per week.

Dec 10 - 5K per week
Dec 31 - 10K per week
Jan 21 - 20K per week

Apr 15 - 160K per week
May 6 - 320K per week

Jun 17 - 1,280,000 new infections per week...

Also, about half the workers in Liberia that had jobs before the outbreak are now jobless.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-30119043

Notice how the BBC isn't afraid to say there are around 14,000 infected?

We seem to be at around 1000-1200 new infections per week. From November 26 to December 29 we've come up from 15,300 to just over 20,000 (around 4700 new confirmed cases). However as the numbers climb more and more cases are beginning, like a fractal in chaos theory, to spread to other countries. Each of these has the capability to be the start of another 20,000 infections in 6-12 months time.

If the reports are true, that there are over 1200 active cases that the CDC is monitoring in the US, then it'll only be a matter of time before we hear of medical martial law.  The few thousand cases in Sierra Leone have radically affected the availability of food there, as farmers have left their fields. Likewise it has affected the children there, as virtually no one is sending their kids to school for fear of exposure in a crowded setting.

We would be foolish to believe this cannot happen here, is not already happening here. Viruses do not care about skin color nor do they stop at the border to show their passports.

No problem. I just wanted a thread like this somewhere and since the presstitute media has given Ebola the cold obummer shoulder, I thought I'd do it myself.

I'm relieved it is slow in going J-shaped/exponential, but the virus is still out in the wild. Every time we hear about a new case in a new foreign country I dread it.

As a student of environmental studies I believe humans have used technology to far exceed the Earth's natural carrying capacity (Malthusian theory). And for any species that does this there are built in systems to bring us back into balance.

Appears to be slowing, thank goodness.
Every case is still a Petri dish for new mutations though.
Hope it's exterminated soon.
I wouldn't wish the illness on anyone.

But... They are worried lots of people are asymptomatic and harboring the virus and that it will mutate.

As of 2/16

Over 23,182 infected. Up 848 over 14 days = 61 new infections per day on average
9353 dead.  Up 432 over 14 days = 30 new deaths per day on average

3053 new since December 30/49 days since also shows 62 new cases per day, therefore rate of infection seems to have remained constant for the last 7 weeks.

Average lethality appears to be 50% (61 get it, 30 die).  Hope ISIS isn't weaponizing this stuff.

Notice the spike at the tail in Sierra Leone and Guinea?  Not a good sign.  Might be kids going back to school.  Might be the due to people congregating indoors because of the weather.  Who knows.  But look at it compared to the previous year at the same time and then do the math with the current starting numbers instead of 1 or 2 cases.

Hey there SicSemperTyrannis. I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate all the work that your doing keeping everyone updated on the Ebola. You've been at this from the start and it certainly hasn't gone unnoticed. I wish others would pick a topic like you have and then keep on top of it like you have done. So I'd like to thank you from Dave and myself and all the readers as well. Great job and well done. Its people like you who help make The People forum a great source of information.

Post by: RougeCoyote on March 23, 2015, 09:22:20 AM
I just checked the date on when you started tracking Ebola. You've been at this relentlessly for over five months. Now that's dedication. Thanks again from all of us at The People.
Title: Re: Ebola Update
Post by: SicSemperTyrannis on March 24, 2015, 01:09:03 AM
Thanks RougeCoyote.

Not a lot of people comment anymore but it was important to me to keep track over the long haul regardless because I couldn't seem to find a reliable place where someone else was doing it.

I hope by this fall it'll be at zero cases but then again it might start spreading far and wide as summer comes on like it did last year.

And then there's the number of mutations its undergone. In under two years I read there's been something like 500 mutations. My chief concern is that it could become truly airborne with a higher transmission rate but lower lethality. Something akin to the flu for ease of spreading but killing 10-20% of the people who get it would still leave the world panicking.

Woman in Liberia thought to have caught Ebola after having unprotected sex with survivor SIX MONTHS after he was cured
44-year-old diagnosed on March 20, 14 days after sex with male survivor
Man tested negative for the virus 199 days before apparently passing it on
Potentially means Ebloa can survive twice as long as previously thought
