ebola-outbreak2

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.

    More fear porn from the WHO. Just like last time, and the Zika nonsense, no evidence of anything. The mere presence of a virus, if there even is one, does not equate to automatic illness.

    this is nothing-the US is losing 50 times as many people to just illegal drug overdoses-a few hundred people with ebola is no big deal.

    Bathhouse Barry tried to get a bunch of the ebola here when sent our military over to help. He would welcome an ebola outbreak here, He could blame that on Trump too. We the People have to wake up to the fact that our nation is under attack from within. Lunatic Democrats and Rino Republicans all trying to bring our country down. Their plan is working. These are troubling times we are in and Trump is almost fighting alone!!!

    • SP_88

      Of course Bathhouse Barry would be safe inside his Bathhouse Bunker while we are busy dying from blood gushing from every orifice and scrambling to gather whatever food and resources we can.
      If ebola goes airborne, we are screwed. The densely populated cities, congested airports, mass transportation, and all the other things that are crammed full of people going from one place to another would become conduits for mass infection that would spread the virus throughout the country in a matter of days. And within a week or so we would be completely shut down. It would be the end. And it’s quite likely that the rest of the world wouldn’t fare much better.
      Our hospitals would be quickly overwhelmed. Emergency personnel would abandon their posts to get home to their families. We would quickly find ourselves on our own.
      I don’t believe that will happen this time. And perhaps not next time either.
      But sometimes I wonder if they are just doing this to get everyone all riled up for nothing, so they can make as many people as possible become complacent. And after nothing happens, people will say, ” I told you so”. Then they will do it again. And people will get all riled up again. And when nothing happens, even more people will say, “I told you so”. Then when it happens again, everyone will be sick and tired of hearing about it, and they will be convinced that nothing will happen. And that’s when something will happen. And few people will be prepared for it. Most people will be taken by surprise. And whatever it is will have maximum effect, whether it’s an EMP, epidemic, pandemic, or some other disaster.
      It’ll be a “boy who cried wolf” sort of situation.
      All we can do is try to be prepared as best as possible. And if like-minded people can stick together, it will increase their chances of survival.

        SP_88 said “But sometimes I wonder if they are just doing this to get everyone all riled up for nothing, so they can make as many people as possible become complacent.” Exactly. I talked to someone during the last scare, I needed help moving some stuff around, when it passed he said “Well, you wasted your time, didn’t you? Bet you won’t do that again!” Um. yeah. Yeah, I will. He wouldn’t do anything then, won’t do anything now, and will definitely be a surprised statistic when things DO happen….

        You can’t pull some folks heads out of where they have crammed them….
        But I’m told I’m a paranoid. You say paranoid, I say educated.

        • SP_88

          People have a bad habit of being very predictable. The best way to get people to let their guard down is to repeatedly threaten them with something that never seems to come to fruition, and then when they stop responding, and they are convinced that it will never happen, let ’em have it.
          And right now there are numerous things that people have been told are going to happen so many times that they no longer believe it. Economic collapse, EMP, pandemics, WW3, etc, etc, and it never happens. If any one of these things were about to happen, many people would ignore the warnings and go about their business. And they would all be blindsided by whatever happened.
          Only those who prepared would have a chance of surviving. The rest of them would be screwed.
          We can only get lucky for so long before something happens. And a deadly pandemic would certainly be very effective at killing a lot of people. Especially since we have so many ways for it to spread, unlike long ago before there was planes, trains and buses, etc to move people all over the world in a matter of hours.
          I often wonder what has prevented a pandemic from happening so far. And I think it’s just dumb luck or because someone hasn’t let it happen yet. Or both.

          • The Tuna Fairy

            “People have a bad habit of being very predictable.” Yes. That’s what makes me crazy about this society. People talk about how smart we are, how much the world has improved, when under the thin veneer of technological change is the same old tribalism, egocentricism, and blindness as always.

            If we are so clever, when are we gonna grow up?

          • SP_88

            Well said. The world may have changed. Technology may be much more advanced. But the people are the same easily manipulated lemmings who are as stupid as ever. They fall for the same stupid tricks over and over again.
            And because the government controls what people learn about history and our past, they are able to edit and manipulate what version of history we learn. So the masses are never able to learn from our mistakes because they just don’t know about them.
            Sure, some people slip through the cracks and are able to learn about true history through doing their own research, but that’s not enough to change the direction we are going in. In fact, the few people who are properly educated about history appear to be fringe lunatics with a crazy agenda.
            I believe that it is possible to reverse the direction we are headed in, and regain control over our government and our country. But there is no one thing that will be a magic bullet that saves us all. What we need is a long term plan with clearly defined goals. We need to beat them at their own game.
            Right now they are playing a good game of chess, and they are kicking our ass. And we are screwing around playing checkers and tiddley winks.
            We need to start playing this like a long chess game. And we need to play as if our lives depend on it. Because they do.

          • Depends on how grown up is defined.

  • Fortunately for everyone, the hypothesis of “infectious disease” is, scientifically speaking, arrant nonsense. This is why, even in an epidemic, infection rate is only 1% – 4%, i.e. 96% remain completely unaffected.

    The symptoms of the “Black Death” in Europe from 1340 to 1343 are identical to those of Ebola. It is a reasonable presumption that they are one and the same thing.

    If we compare the environmental factors which lead to such diseases, we find that those of 14th century Europe and present day central Africa are identical.
    Like causes bring like effects!
    I go into this in some detail in my video here:
    http://www.karmasingh.tv/web/en/world-events.html#ebola

    Although it is some three years since I put this up, nothing has changed and real figures are not being published.
    There is also a lot of scaremongering such as the article above in which, although a mere handful of cases have been reported, we start with a scare figure of 800% – meaningless.

    Blessed be
