On June 26th 2000 The New York Times carried an article by Lawrence Altman regarding asymptomatic Ebola patients carrying, and possibly spreading the disease.
The piece was based on research by African and European scientists regarding a study published in The Lancet. The team was headed by Dr. E. M. Leroy of Franceville, Gabon.
The study followed 24 ( Altman says 25 people, but the original piece states 24) people who had lived with Ebola patients. They had cared for them, and often buried them, all without the use of gloves and the protective clothing we have come to associate with the disease.
Blood tests at the time, this was 1996, didn’t detect the virus in the blood of the carers, but Leroy suspected it was there. He used polymerase chain reaction to isolate the virus and found it was, as he suspected, present in these people, albeit in small amounts.
From the study:
The lack of genetic differences between symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals suggest that asymptomatic Ebola infection did not result from viral mutations. Elucidation of the factors related to the genesis of the strong inflammatory response occurring early during the infectious process in these asymptomatic individuals could increase our understanding of the disease.
Read that first line again:
This study showed that asymptomatic, replicative Ebola infection can and does occur in human beings.
This was a known fact in 1996. The study was published in a world renowned, highly respected medical publication in 2000, yet no doctor to my knowledge has yet come forward quoting the study. No warnings have been put out regarding the asymptomatic carriers of Ebola. You can read the full study in The Lancet.
The case of Typhoid Mary comes to mind.
Mary Mallon was the cause of several typhoid outbreaks, she was a carrier of the disease and was able to pass it to others, but did not suffer from it herself. She was asymptomatic.
We have heard quite literally thousands of times in recent months that people travelling from Ebola stuck regions are not infective until they are symptomatic. This is obviously a fallacy. There are a small number of people who can carry and pass on Ebola without showing the signs and symptoms of it themselves.
This could prove problematic for the authorities who are currently screening people from Ebola outbreak areas and only quarantining those who have any indication of the disease.
An asymptomatic carrier could be walking around passing on this condition, causing outbreaks or worse an epidemic that will prove nigh on impossible to contain in the long term.
The possibility of Ebola becoming endemic in the West, as malaria has in some tropical and sub-tropical regions, is obviously one to be avoided at all costs.
May I respectfully suggest that ALL those entering thus far relatively unscathed nations, those with symptoms or with no symptoms, be given a blood test and/or polymerase chain reaction tests to prove that they are not an asymptomatic carrier of the disease?
We are also told by agencies such as the CDC that Ebola cannot be spread by food. They say this as they claim that the outbreak started in a village when a child ate bushmeat…which is food. Meat is meat, chimp or cow, to Ebola it’s just meat. The Spanish authorities put down a dog because it’s owner was suffering from Ebola. A dog is, in another country, just meat. An animal, a critter like every other critter on the planet.
Can someone tell me decisively that if an Ebola infected slaughterhouse worker nicked himself and bled onto the carcass of a cow, pig or sheep that I am 100% safe from Ebola? If that meat is well cooked fine, but what if I take my steak rare?
There is, as you can see a difference between contaminated meat and Ebola actually making it into the food chain as it has with bushmeat. Ultimately, if it was hanging around long enough it could in theory make it into the food chain eventually. To be fair, unless it was introduced deliberately I think that this would take a considerable amount of time.
We are given so much mis-information by the authorities, they manipulate and omit much that the public should be told.
Added to that we get the likes of Kaci Hickox, a disgrace to the nursing profession if ever there was one, screaming about her human rights. Then there’s Dr Craig Spencer who didn’t readily admit where he had been immediately prior to his Ebola diagnosis. What the hell is wrong with these people?
The recent admission that Ebola can spread by coughs and sneezes is old news to anyone with an ounce of common sense. Snot, and respiratory droplets are, after all, body fluids. It can also live on surfaces for a good time, especially in cool conditions…well yes, we deduced that a while back.
The health departments and governments of the West are confirming things that have been in the public domain, mainly exposed by the alternative media, for some considerable time.
Let’s see how long it takes them to pick up on this snippet.
