The World Health Organization has announced that Ebola victims in Liberia will be confined to camps as medical facilities can no longer cope with the influx of patients. The idea is to isolate these people from those caring for them in order to reduce the spread of the deadly disease.

From the Washington Post:

MONROVIA, Liberia — Looking for a new approach to blunt the Ebola epidemic sweeping West Africa, the Liberian government, the World Health Organization and their nonprofit partners here are launching an ambitious but controversial program to move infected people out of their homes and into ad hoc centers that will provide rudimentary care, officials said Monday.

The effort, which is expected to begin in the next few weeks, is an intermediate step, officials said. The goal is to reduce the chances that Ebola patients will infect their own families and others while ensuring that they receive basic care — such as food, water and pain medicine — at a time when many hospitals and treatment centers are closed.

Note the words rudimentary care…These centres will not solve the problems Ebola is causing. For a start you have to get the patients to the camp treatment centre without further contaminating other people. Then you have to have a means of keeping them there without passing the disease to the guards  attendants who will be going home each night. You have to get food and water in and waste out…unless that’s not the idea at all.

If the proposal is to lock them in and keep them in, in order to let the disease burn itself out well that’s a different thing altogether, I suppose you could just torch the place afterwards…

For those fortunate people that manage to avoid being rounded up and sent to death camps there is an increasing problem of where their final resting place will be. The cemeteries are filling at a rapid rate. Indicating that the epidemic is already far worse than the authorities admit to.

James Hamilton, chief gravedigger at the King Tom Cemetary said ” much more space is needed”. The supervisor at the cemetery  has recorded 110 Ebola burials this week, in one cemetery in Freetown, he does not comment on other cemeteries in Freetown. Sierra Leone has officially recorded only 10 deaths due to Ebola in the city. (source and read more)

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation is warning that unless Ebola is brought under control and fast we could be looking at a situation where the disease is permanently circulating amongst African populations. With the death rate increasing, now about 70% of those contracting Ebola die from it.

From USA Today:

 The notion that Ebola could become endemic in West Africa — spreading routinely, rather than in sporadic outbreaks — is “a prospect that has never before been contemplated,” according to the report, published online in the New England Journal of Medicine. There could be 20,000 cases by Nov. 2, with thousands of new cases per week, the report said. About 70% of patients are dying from the illness.

“We are concerned that without a massive increase in the response, way beyond what is being planned in scale and urgency … it will prove impossible to bring the epidemic under control,” wrote disease researchers Jeremy Farrar, of the Wellcome Trust, and Peter Piot, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, in an accompanying editorial.

The Ebola virus has caused more than 20 outbreaks in the past four decades, mostly in remote villages in Central Africa. Although some outbreaks were severe, public health officials were always able to put a stop to them — even without effective treatments or vaccines — by quickly and methodically diagnosing patients, making a list of everyone those patients might have exposed and then monitoring those contacts.

ZMapp, the test drug that has been supplied to treat a few western patients with Ebola has now been exhausted. A Spanish priest Manuel Garcia Viejo, was repatriated on Monday, and the Spanish authorities were hoping that they could treat him with ZMapp. Mapp Pharmaceuticals however has told them that supplies are exhausted and that it will take months to make even a small batch of the drug.

In an attempt to prevent the disease from spreading the CDC have issued guidelines advising cabin crew to treat any bodily fluids as infected and to take action accordingly. (source) About time. Universal precautions should have been introduced at the start of this outbreak. If that had been the case with all airlines maybe some of the dozen or so people who lost their lives after coming into contact with Patrick Sawyer may have survived.

With every day that the Eola epidemic, for that’s what it now is, is not brought under control the chances of it arriving in the West increases.

Will we see the setting up of death camps treatment centres on US and European soil because the medical services are overwhelmed? Has FEMA and the European Health Agency already started the ball rolling? Is that what they mean by they are ready and able to respond? Looks like the camps they have set up ready to quell civil dissent may come in handy after all.
