    Ebola Outbreak Shows Major Reforms Needed To Prevent Future Pandemic
    (VOA News)



    https://youtu.be/CXTV5kENcAM

    Published on Nov 23, 2015
    A panel of experts says major reforms of the global health system are needed if the world is to avoid a repeat of the Ebola epidemic that swept across West Africa in 2014 and early 2015. The experts convened by the Harvard Global Health Institute and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine say the slow response cost thousands of lives. Henry Ridgwell has more from London.

    Hey can anyone remember the two stocks that took off like a rocket the last time Ebola was going to kill the world?

    might be worth throwing a couple of dollars on a call option?

    Look, it's just more scary 'news' to keep us on our toes. It's their next big push for justifying some vaccine that they say will help protect us from infection from this strain, or some such crap.

    It's a smoke show, a dog and pony show and we're the animals performing for the masters.

    ebola

    I was watching a u toober thing this morn about "Watson" and such with all the rna and splicing and ya all need to see that shit because it ain't what ya all think. yes some of it is, and yes they are doing it. But as I was dozzing in and out I awoke to one guy telling about a lab here in the states that the guy was using the ebola virus to splice rna into. And, yes it was an open lab.

    So ebola has been on these shores for a very long time...since the '80's i think. Anywhoo, the guy who got monsanto into it actually had to kind of drag them into it and then it went from there when they could see how they could make a profit.

    But the thing of it was is that these crazy doctors er what ever they were/are. They had no protocals but one dimwhit decided to call a conference. So all these egg heads get together for three days. Blaw, blaw blaw and then the lawyers they invited were the last ones to get up and talk and the lying lawyers gave them boneheads a Melvin...and that my friends is why we have P4 clean rooms now. You might know them as the wash before you go in and wash when you come out rooms.

    On 9 May 2017, WHO was informed of a cluster of undiagnosed illness
    and deaths including hemorrhagic symptoms in Likati Health Zone, Bas
    Uele Province in the north of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
    (DRC), bordering Central African Republic. Since [Sat 22 Apr 2017], 9
    cases including 3 deaths have been reported. Six cases are currently
    hospitalized.

    On [Thu 11 May 2017], the Ministry of Health (MoH) of DRC informed WHO
    that of the 5 samples collected from suspected cases, 1 tested
    positive by RT-PCR for Ebola virus subtype Zaire at the Institut
    National de Recherche Biom?dicale (INRB) in Kinshasa. Additional
    specimens are currently being tested and results, including
    sequencing, are awaited to describe the outbreak.

    On [Wed 10 May 2017], a multidisciplinary team led by the MoH and
    supported by WHO and partners was deployed to the field and are
    expected to reach the affected area on 12 or 13 May 2017 to conduct an
    in depth field investigation.

    The investigation is currently ongoing and information is available
    for only 3 of the suspected cases: The 1st case (and possibly the
    index case), a 39-year-old male presented onset of symptoms on [Sat 22
    Apr 2017] and deceased on arrival at the health facility. He presented
    with hematuria, epistaxis, bloody diarrhea, and hematemesis. Two
    contacts of this case are being investigated: a person who took care
    of him during transport to the health care facility (he has since
    developed similar symptoms) and a moto-taxi driver (deceased) who
    transported the patient to the health care facility.

    Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health care workers has been
    shipped on [Fri 12 May 2017] to Kisangani. Additional kits are
    currently being prepared and will be shipped as soon as available. [It
    would be good for countries with records of Ebola outbreaks to
    maintain suplies of PPE if at all possible, so health care workers do
    not need to wait for shipments to arrive. - Mod.LK]

    Amazing how the hand-wringers and Chicken Littles go into panic mode.

    A few people die of Ebola and suddenly it's a global catastrophe.

    Scriptwriters are going to have a tough time selling this one.

    ] DR Congo: suspected cases increase to 29
    Date: Thu 18 May 2017
    Source: New York Times [edited]
    <http://nyti.ms/2q28asJ>


    The number of suspected cases of Ebola has risen to 29 from 9 in less
    than a week in an isolated part of Democratic Republic of Congo, where
    3 people have died from the disease since [22 Apr 2017], the World
    Health Organization said on [Thu 18 May 2017].

    The WHO was criticized for responding too slowly to an outbreak in
    West Africa in 2014 that left more than 11 000 people dead, and Dr.
    Peter Salama, the executive director of the organization's health
    emergencies program, said at a briefing that it was essential to
    "never, ever underestimate Ebola" and to "make sure we have a
    no-regrets approach to this outbreak".

    The risk from the outbreak is "high at the national level," the WHO
    said, because the disease was so severe and was spreading in a remote
    area in northeastern Congo with "suboptimal surveillance" and limited
    access to health care. "Risk at the regional level is moderate due to
    the proximity of international borders and the recent influx of
    refugees from Central African Republic," the organization said, but it
    nonetheless described the global risk as low because the area is so
    remote.

    About a week ago, in addition to the 9 suspected cases, 125 patients
    who had come into close contact with the disease were being monitored.
    Now about 400 patients are being followed, even as 9 new cases were
    reported on [Thu 18 May 2017], according to the WHO.

    The Ebola virus causes fever, bleeding, vomiting and diarrhea, and it
    spreads easily by contact with bodily fluids. The death rate is high,
    often surpassing 50 percent, particularly with the Zaire strain, which
    has been confirmed in 2 cases in this outbreak.

    The outbreak was reported in a densely forested part of Bas-Uele
    Province, near the border with the Central African Republic. Cases
    have occurred in 4 separate parts of a region called the Likati health
    zone. Aid groups and the WHO have struggled to reach the affected
    area, which has no paved roads and can be reached only by a motorcycle
    ride through the forest, or by helicopter or light aircraft.

    The first known case occurred on [22 Apr 2017], when a 39-year-old man
    who had fever, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding died on the way to a
    hospital in the Likati zone. The person caring for him and a
    motorcyclist who transported him also died.

    The first 6 months of the response to the outbreak are expected to
    cost the WHO and aid groups USD 10 million, Dr. Salama said at the
    briefing. He said telecommunications networks would have to be
    established and airstrips repaired so that aid workers can provide the
    necessary medical care.

    The WHO, aid groups and the Congolese government are discussing the
    possibility of using an experimental Ebola vaccine, made by the
    American pharmaceutical company Merck that proved effective in Guinea.
    The response would involve a "ring vaccination," in which contacts of
    patients, contacts of contacts, and health workers would be
    vaccinated. There would be no mass public vaccination. The vaccine has
    not yet been licensed, and its use would require permission on several
    fronts. Nonetheless, Dr. Salama said that if permission were granted,
    the vaccine could be made available in a week or so. Other
    experimental antiviral drugs may also be considered.

    The Ebola virus is considered endemic in the Democratic Republic of
    Congo, where 8 outbreaks, the largest involving about 300 patients,
    have been recorded since 1976.

    Inside Hospital's Ebola Battle
    ------------------------------
    The country "has considerable experience and capacity in confronting
    these outbreaks," Dr. Daniel Bausch, an Ebola expert at the WHO, said
    in an email. He added, "I think there is a very good probability that
    control can be rapidly achieved."

    Dr. Salama said that aid workers had reached a town in the Likati
    zone, which was as close as they had been able to come to the
    epicenter of the outbreak. He said aid groups were setting up centers
    for treatment and isolation, and mobile labs.

    The first aid group to arrive was the Alliance for International
    Medical Action, which was already in the region, responding to
    cholera. In a telephone interview from Conakry, Guinea, the group's
    executive director, Matthew Cleary, said that 7 people who were
    believed to have contracted Ebola had been taken to a district
    hospital in the Likati zone that was not equipped to deal with the
    virus. "It's urgent to get them into a proper isolation center," Mr.
    Cleary said, adding that the group is preparing to build a treatment
    unit. It will include windows that allow families to see patients, a
    response to past outbreaks in which people feared and sometimes
    shunned sealed-up isolation units into which patients seemed to
    disappear.

    Brienne Prusak, a spokeswoman for Doctors Without Borders said on [Wed
    17 May 2017] that the group had sent a team of about 20 doctors,
    nurses and other experts to the Likati zone, and that it was still
    trying to figure out how to reach the epicenter. "Transport is
    extremely difficult in the area, and helicopter flights may be the
    only way to get there," she said by email. "We considered motorbikes
    but are now thinking of helicopters because we need to get so many
    materials there. We're expecting to get to the epicenter by the
    weekend."

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States is
    also sending a renowned Ebola expert, Dr. Pierre Rollin, to Congo,
    along with epidemiologists, a spokeswoman said.

    Ebola Spreading: Infections Up 800% In Last Week: Officials Race To Track Down 400 Possible Contacts

    Mac Slavo
    May 19th, 2017
    SHTFplan.com

    [​IMG]

    Last week three suspected Ebola infections were detected in a remote region of the Congo. Since then, World Health Organization officials have been scrambling to contain the virus.

    Their efforts appear to have failed.

    The contagion continues to spread, and though it’s nowhere near the 11,000 people who were infected during the outbreak in 2014, the infection rate has spiked over 800% in just the last seven days, with at least nine new cases reported in the last 24 hours:

    The number of suspected cases of Ebola has risen to 29 from nine in less than a week in an isolated part of Democratic Republic of Congo, where three people have died from the disease since April 22, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.



    The risk from the outbreak is “high at the national level,” the W.H.O. said, because the disease was so severe and was spreading in a remote area in northeastern Congo with “suboptimal surveillance” and limited access to health care.

    “Risk at the regional level is moderate due to the proximity of international borders and the recent influx of refugees from Central African Republic,” the organization said, but it nonetheless described the global risk as low because the area is so remote. (NY Times)

    The 2014 outbreak likewise started in a remote region of Africa, but containment efforts were ineffective and the virus eventually spread to the United States and Europe.

    ***

    According to W.H.O., about 400 people have come into contact with the 29 people infected and officials are attempting to track them down for monitoring.

    Protective gear has been dispatched to health workers and a mobile lab is being constructed and then deployed to the area. Immediate repairs to air strips and telecommunications are also being carried out. The first six months of the operation are expected to cost $10 million…



    With the help of the UN, the first search teams, led by the DRC’s Ministry of Health, flew into Likati yesterday. Their immediate priority is to follow the 400 plus contacts of the suspected Ebola cases. (U.N. News Centre)

    As we learned in 2014, all it takes is one infected individual to make it through an airport checkpoint.

    With international travel via airports, trains and cars available throughout the region, a single infected individual on an airplane could infect scores of others, who in turn could infect scores more.

    The following Ebola model from Yaneer Bar-Yam, who has successfully simulated and predicted such events as the rise of the Arab Spring, shows how an Ebola contagion may look.



    The above model is based on Ebola’s current infection rates and doesn’t take into account its possible evolution as it spreads from human-to-human.

    According to scientists, the 2014 strain began hyper evolving, to the point that had it not been contained and continued to spread through human contact, it could have gone airborne, making it as easy to catch as a common cold.

    In response to this unprecedented threat, US government officials began preparing for mass casualties, reportedly going so far as to develop plans for Community Care Centers where infected individuals, or those suspected of infections, would be detained indefinitely.

    As the Ebola contagion spread across the globe, the panicked populace rushed to stockpile emergency supplies like freeze dried foods, bio-protective body suits and gas masks.

    The concern, of course, was that a virus with a 90% fatality rate after infection would make its way to local American communities. As Tess Pennington notes in her Pandemic Preparedness Guide, once it’s within 50 miles of where you live, it’s time to worry and take immediate steps to isolate your family from the threat, because most people won’t realize how serious of a situation they are in:

    Looking back at the Black Plague, those living in high populated areas were hit hardest by this pandemic. The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30–60 percent of Europe’s population. Given our vast array of transportation systems, modern society causes infectious disease to spread far more rapidly compared to any other time in recorded history; and because pandemics are fast moving, vaccinations would be useless. Further, in regards to the world’s transportation system, the morbidity rate in a future pandemic could result in millions seeking medical care at the same time thus overwhelming hospitals and emergency departments.



    When an outbreak occurs, many will remain in a state of denial about any approaching epidemics. Simply put, most people believe themselves to be invincible to negative situations and do not like the idea change of any kind. They will remain in this state until they realize they are unable to deny it to themselves any longer. Being prepared before the mass come out of their daze will ensure that you are better prepared before the hoards run to the store to stock up.

    Perhaps containment procedures being implemented in the Congo by W.H.O. will be more effective this time around than they were in 2014.

    But what if they’re not? What if the virus mutates and goes airborne?

    Plan accordingly.
