Mapping Africa's "Totally Out Of Control" Ebola Epidemic

Tyler Durden's picture




 

"The epidemic is totally out of control," warns medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières of the deadly Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. "There is a real risk of it spreading to other areas...Ebola is no longer a public health issue limited to Guinea: it is affecting the whole of West Africa." As of Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the number of cases at 362 — more than any other outbreak on record. Here's everything you need to know about Ebola...

 

Ebola has a fatality rate of up to 90 percent and there is no vaccine and no known cure. The virus initially causes raging fever, headaches, muscle pain, conjunctivitis and weakness, before moving into more severe phases with vomiting, diarrhoea and haemorrhages.

As Reuters notes,

"The epidemic is totally out of control," said Bart Janssens, MSF director of operations. "With the appearance of new sites in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, there is a real risk of it spreading to other areas."

 

"Ebola is no longer a public health issue limited to Guinea: it is affecting the whole of West Africa," said Janssens, urging WHO, affected countries and their neighbours to deploy more resources especially trained medical staff.

 

MSF has treated some 470 patients, 215 of them confirmed cases, in specialised centres in the region but the organisation said it had reached the limit of its capacity.

 

Patients have been identified in more than 60 locations across the three countries making it harder to curb the outbreak.

But locals remain apparently ignorant of the risks...

The disease has not previously occurred in the region and local people remain frightened of it and view health facilities with suspicion. This makes it harder to bring it under control, MSF said in a statement.

 

At the same time, MSF said, a lack of understanding has meant people continue to prepare corpses and attend funerals of Ebola victims, leaving them vulnerable to the disease, transmitted by touching victims or through bodily fluids.

 

Civil society groups, governments and religious authorities have also failed to acknowledge the scale of the epidemic and as a result few prominent figures are promoting the fight against the disease, the statement said.

If a disease is 'totally out of control', and has a 90% mortality rate... why are there only 362 deaths?

C'mon Tyler, quit with the hyperbole please... even if it is just quoting another source.

The Ebola Virus is an endangered species, much like the endangered Guinea Worm, why is this being repressed???

 

Save the Guinea Worm Foundation

 

"The rare Guinea Worm faces extinction. Yet despite growing public support for environmentalism and preservation of endangered species, few people will speak out on the Guinea Worm's behalf. In fact, the United Nations and several prominent U.S. agencies are leading a quiet campaign to eradicate this dwindling species forever from the planet. Is the Guinea Worm the world's most endangered species?

 

The Foundation: Who Speaks for the Guinea Worms?

As you read this, a cartel of powerful organizations is conspiring to exterminate a living endangered species from the planet. And almost no one is doing anything about it.

The Guinea Worm has few defenders. Guinea Worms are neither cute nor fluffy. An animated Guinea Worm with a humorous voice has never appeared in a Disney movie. Yet the Guinea Worm is as endangered as any species today. When the last one has been killed, the earth's biodiversity will have been irrevocably harmed.

Unlike elephants, tigers, and other charismatic megafauna, the Guinea Worm has few advocates. While more photogenic species benefit from worldwide attention and seemingly-inexhaustible efforts to preserve their small numbers, the Guinea Worm struggles in silence against an organized worldwide effort of supposed "health" experts who have little or no awareness of the damage they pose to worldwide biodiversity. Ironically, as a parasite the Guinea Worm is dependent on humanity to complete its life cycle. The species' very survival depends on us.

The Save the Guinea Worm Foundation was founded to speak out where the environmental movement has remained silent, and stop the United Nations and the rest of its international Cartel from destroying the world's most endangered species forever.

We tirelessly campaign campaign to see world leaders respond to the simple question: Why are we willingly destroying an endangered species?

 

The Crisis: Who is Behind the Extermination?

At the heart of the Guinea Worm crisis is the United Nations, along with several powerful global agencies, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). In May 2000, these powerful institutions were joined by a new funding crusade to bring about the eradication of the Guinea Worm... by none other than Bill Gates and his "Gates Foundation." It is hard to believe that these respected organizations, which spend untold billions of dollars toward the alledged improvement of life on earth, would embark upon such a reckless and destructive campaign. Yet the potential environmental ramifications of Guinea Worm eradication have gone virtually ignored for years as the number of surviving Guinea Worms continued to plummet.

As of July 2000, the Guinea Worm had been completely eradicated in Europe. The species clings to life in a handful of African nations, where efforts to destroy it continue.

The Guinea Worm Destruction Cartel claims to have the best interests of humankind at their heart. Like all members of a functioning ecosystem, the Guinea Worm interacts with other members of the ecosystem to complete its life-cycle. Yet because the Guinea Worm is unlucky enough to rely upon humanity for its self preservation, it is branded a "parasite" and targeted for destruction.

At first, this approach seems to make sense from a health standpoint. Interaction with Guinea Worms is linked with painful health complaints among many people in the developing world. Certainly those people deserve a better life. Yet armed with this justification, "health" officials in the Cartel hatched a plan to bring about the most short-sighted option possible -- the complete elimination of a living species from the planet.

The Guinea Worm eradication cannot be compared to campaigns against small pox or polio for one simple reason: the Guinea Worm is not a disease microbe, but a living animal. It has a nervous system. Its hearts pump blood through its small body. It experiences pain. And for thousands, perhaps millions of years, it has inhabited the earth unmolested. Until human hubris threatened its very future.

Fortunately, you don't have to stand idly by while the Guinea Worm is forciby removed from planet earth! You can take action to help save the Guinea Worm!

umm....

Very little of that is propaganda. It's pretty hard to fudge the stillborn or youth mortality rates. It really is a shithole, still.

Only need to worry if the Ebola spreads overseas, and finds a way to get past water filter tech. Chances of that going down ? internet pundit says 5%. The long incubation time means isolating the patents is easier. The stool (main vector) spread is limited by 50% approx when you return to a modern carry-away system. Only danger I can see is if somehow it gets a taste for antibiotic resistant coatings. Certain one of the CDC's or Microbiolgist can do a lecture post on this.

Go ahead, I can wait while you google. I normally do not reply to bad posts, but your opinion that Africa's problems is somehow a propaganda smokeshow deserves some followup and a call out. Stop being stupid, it hurts everyone.

I hope I misunderstood your comment, its seemed contemptuous bordering on spiteful. The majority of Afircans are good and decent but Anglo-American etc interests bring drugs, guns and horror to steal the mineral wealth and farmers of every nation in Africa are the first to be terrorised and find their kids are tools for even more horror. The continent has been over run by 2 legged critters for long time you may know the name Rhodes?

BTW the diseases and horror are coming your way, so show some decency.

For the twits that think nations fell apart in Africa without major intervention by outside competing-powers setting up dictators so they could freely exploit resources and repeatedly gang-rape the nations using NGOs, take a look at the slow burn in your home nation and grow some fucking compassion.

Apparently this strain of Ebola has a longer incubation time than the prior outbreaks. In the past the incubation period, the time from data of infection until obvious signs of the disease developed, was a week or so. With this current strain it is closer to a month. This means that individuals may be infected, may be unaware of that fact, will travel within the region and communicate the disease to others.

If this is correct then watch for a sharp jump in the number of cases a month from now. At that time every one will panic but in the interval between now and then the infected will be spreading the disease through thier communities.

If ISIS is "smart" enough to get Isreal to do their air-support for them by launching rockets into Isreal from Syria wherever they need some bombs dropped... They're certanly smart enough to get some poor schmuck infected with Ebola and send them to the US.

Just saying.

Me thinks TPTB will get their way... if 90% population reduction to 500 million people is what they want, 90% population reduction is what they'll get... with the added bonus of consolidating power under the UN "to fight this global threat"...  (along with every other global threat they've been busy creating/exaserbating... from central banking driven inflation, to fukushima).

I was thinking along the same lines... namely that a wealthy individual or even a small cohesive nation run by psychopaths would create a deadly virulent pathogen and use it to "inherit the earth"so to speak.

-1 for repeating the tired meme of "PTB want to kill off everyone except 500 million, because the georgia guidestones say so".

i heard someone recently use the term "hedgetard", i think it applies here, as well as to all infowars, natural news, michael snyder readers.

there's plenty enough wrong with the world without exaggerating, speculating, twisting the facts, and outright making shit up in order to sell doom porn.

Who said anything about the Georgia Guidstones? (j/k)  For the record, I'm no fan of Alex Jones.

Seriously though, there's a whole lot more than just the Georgia Guidestones to suggest this is the direction things are headed.  TPTB believe Earth running out of resources to support everyone, which by all means it appears we are... though I would argue it's mostly due to consumption driven by debt based fiat currency...  They even state population reduction as one of the goals of agenda 21, though they would probably say the intention is through a reduction of birth rates.  Unfortunately it would seem fixing problems like the Ebola virus and Fukushima that just happen to get out of control would seem contrary to that agenda... you think?

Call me a hegetard, but you look at the narrative surrounding the Denver "New World" Airport, or fundamentally at the Luceferian Gnostic philosophy that appears to be behind a lot of what we're seeing... from the high level Freemasons, Jesuits, Golden Dawn, Skull and Bones, neo-Nazi'sCons, etc.  They generally think a virus is exactly what the world needs right now.  Especially one that might wipe out dogmatic thinking Abrahamic religions like Jews, Muslims, and Christians.  (You'll note Ebola seems to affect people who prepare their dead for burial more so than the people who cremate them by default.)

Even if you reject all of that, just looking at the direction things are heading with our debt driven economics... we're headed for a massive die-off one way or another.

Can't help it if some people haven't gotten past the cognative dissonance that keeps you from seeing the world for what it is...  I also can't help it if people respond with fear, rather than looking into it for themselves and taking the appropriate measures to insure you're not in the set of people being weeded out of the gene pool.

If you care to dig deeper, part of this goes all the way back to Plato and his vision of a Republic ruled by Philosopher Kings.   Part of the formula for the ideal Republic was for hidden eugenic methods to insure the most fit people according to natural law.  Plato suggested a lottery where men and women appeared to be "randomly" paired, and of course killing any defficient children at birth and chalking it up to natural infant mortality to the parents --considering it a "nobel lie".

for one thing, the georgia guidestones say nothing evil or malevolent, they say nothing about killing off people down to 500M - that's a doom porn interpretation made by the kooks at natural news, sgt report, etc.

if you actually read the guidestones, they seem more to suggest that 500m is something to be targeted by a falling birth rate, not by killing people off.

secondly, what is the connection between the guidestones and the 0.01% ruling elite ?

i don't claim to know who made the guidestones, but the message they posted their, although naive, seems to be reasonable and well-intentioned:

"1. MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE
2. GUIDE REPRODUCTION WISELY - IMPROVING FITNESS AND DIVERSITY
3. UNITE HUMANITY WITH A LIVING NEW LANGUAGE
4. RULE PASSION - FAITH - TRADITION - AND ALL THINGS WITH TEMPERED REASON
5. PROTECT PEOPLE AND NATIONS WITH FAIR LAWS AND JUST COURTS
6. LET ALL NATIONS RULE INTERNALLY RESOLVING EXTERNAL DISPUTES IN A WORLD COURT
7. AVOID PETTY LAWS AND USELESS OFFICIALS
8. BALANCE PERSONAL RIGHTS WITH SOCIAL DUTIES
9. PRIZE TRUTH - BEAUTY - LOVE- SEEKING HARMONY WITH THE INFINITE
10. BE NOT A CANCER ON THE EARTH - LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE - LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE"

now, as far as this comment:

"Even if you reject all of that, just looking at the direction things are heading with our debt driven economics... we're headed for a massive die-off one way or another."

we're headed for a collapse of the financial system, sure, but please explain how you came to the conclusion a massive die-off is inevitable?

"Can't help it if some people haven't gotten past the cognative dissonance that keeps you from seeing the world for what it is."

what cognitive dissonance? what am i not seeing? i keep an open mind, and i know there's plenty wrong with the world and the people in it. but i reject wild-eyed hysterians who claim they know something for a fact when they are speculating.

You're getting hung up on the specific number and to the reference to the Guidestones.  

That said, if your stated objective is to reduce the Earth's population from it's current highs, are you really going to try very hard to stop war, famine, and pestilence from achieving the objective for you?  From that point, all it takes is one small group to take it a step further if it doesn't happen on it's own, while everyone else sits back and more or less cheers it on... (you should take note of how many people happily shout "overpopulation" whenever certain issues come up... thinking for some reason the gun wont be pointed at their head at some point.)

The Guidestones, nor the Denver International "New World" Airport would not exist without some very powerful and intelligent backers.  Agenda 21 type objectives only reaffirms it.

Debt driven economics drives overconsumption by pulling future consomption forward to the present.  And, like Easter Islanders chopping down trees, until one day... no more trees.  Except in our case it's fuel, clean water, food, etc that's all going to get dramatically more expensive, and much like the great depression, or the collapse of the soviet union, people, especially the old and unfit, will die off in significant numbers, generally from malnutrition, or other stress related diseases that the rest of us will hardly notice or even associate with the state of the economy.  

Cognative dissonance, group think, normalcy bias, using hyperbole to undermine the truth, etc... is how the controlled opposition keep you controlled.  Anyone on ZH is probably better off than most in this regard, but it's still hard to grasp objective reality when you've never lived through anything like massive genocide, or the great depression, or any of the horrors of war we visit on other countries.  This stuff does happen, as sure as the sun sets in the evening, and it can happen to you.

You can call it speculation, but as I laid out in the post above, there's plenty of evidence to indicate it's not.  I've done enough research into the Freemasons, the Nazi's, Jesuits, Death's Head/Skull and Bones, etc. and the Luceferian Gnostic philosophy in general, that it unfortunately makes total sense using that framework of thinking.  It's also not hard to see how groups like this can infiltrate goverments (as JFK and numerous other high level officials have tried to warned us), including intelligence agencies like the CIA and KGB, high level military technology projects, and the media.  It's also not hard to see how these people can rationalize things like 9/11 and disappearing MA-370 and convince everyone there was no "conspiracy", even though basic logic tells you otherwise.. meanwhile they use usury and every other measure they can to bring down goverments around the world and consolidate power under the UN.

You realize Alex Jones exists preciesely to associate any discussion around these types of things with "crazy conspiracy theory", right?  This is why I'm not a fan.  Without people like him obfuscating the truth and associating certain topics with fear mongering, more people might be able to find the truth for themselves.  It's there for people willing to look for it and not follow any one particular set of sources.   I suspect "they" don't believe more than 10% of people have the ability to find it and act on it (demonstrating to them that your soul contains the creative spark of the divine will, according to the New Age/Gnostics) ... if that.

What I can tell you, is that viewed through this lense, you can more accurately predict the future... In fact over two years ago, I wrote an email to my family to expect over the next few years an escalation in gun violence, as well as biological and nuclear events until something so horrific happens, especially across borders, anyone who opposes any effort to consolidate power under the UN to police or manage these things would have no support.

Agenda 21! Detroit Families Beg UN for Help After City Cuts Off Water

 

Thousands of families in Detroit, mostly black, have had their water cut off because they can't afford to pay water rates that are nearly double the average in the rest of the country.
In March, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department announced that it would shut off water service for 1,500 to 3,000 customers every week if their water bills were not paid. Clearly not understanding the root of the problem, the City Council just last week approved an 8.7-percent water rate increase.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the average water bill is $75, nearly double the average of $40 nationwide.

The point is their water bill is twice the National Average and they are appealing to the UN for help.  If they do actually get help, that will set a precedent for other areas of the country to follow.  It's also highly unlikely they just randomly came up with the idea of appealing to the UN on their own.

i think you do too much speculation about what TPTB (if they can even be said to be one unified front, which i doubt!) have planned, as if you know for certain. and that's what i object to most, trying to pass off speculation as fact. can you really say what's in someone else's head, or what motivates them? i don't believe that you can.

i fully agree with you that overconsumption of resources and borrowing from the future is a despicable and irresponsible thing for leaders (and consumers!) to have done, and continue doing, but i don't see that mass die-off of people is the inevitable result, only a possibility at this point.

That said, I like the Corbett Report and the people he generally associates with, including Sibel Edmonds at BoilingFrogPost, and the guy at Media Monarchy.  I also generally like Stefan Molyneux's "The Truth About" series... but can't stand his actual radio show.  Dahboo7 at undergroundworldnews.com is interesting for recent events.  Greg Hunter usually has interesting guests.  Zerohege of course.

Again, they all have their biases and short-comings, but they're all also have generally useful information and perspectives you wont get elsewhere and are generally good starting points for looking into things deeper to sort out the hyperbole and agenda based biases from the truth.  For the most part, I assume these people wouldn't be allowed to have a platform at all if they weren't serving the interests of the people running the show as controlled opposition in some way  (presumably they would either be harassed to the point they give up, or coerced somehow).  

Some of the more interesting sources have odd references in their names or the symbols they use that suggest some sort of masonic code... the X22 report for instance... or AJ's "Prison Planet" which would seem to be a Gnostic reference to the belief that Earth is actually hell, a prison planet controlled by the demuirge of the physical universe.  If you can sort out the hyperbole from the truth, even AJ can be a good source.. much like Noam Chomsky or other gatekeepers... they all have to feed you useful information along the way to gain your trust and a following.

Then of course, you can actually read seminal source material like "Mein Kampf" (which translates as "My Struggle"), "Morals and Dogma", "Externalization of the Hierarchy", as well as any Kabbalist texts.  Based on the common theme of philosophy, I'd also recommend looking into books that cover the most commonly referenced ideas in philosophy, including Plato's Republic.

You can take it with a grain of salt, but I also came across an interesting serries of books on Amazon by "Adam Weishupt" and "Mike Hockney", as well as the (fictional) "Illuminatus!" trillogy which all opened my eyes to certain lines of thinking I wouldn't have considered otherwise through my own cognative dissonance.

As they say, "Listen to all.  Follow none."  and "Even a fool is capable of speaking profound truths."

speculating on what "those who run the earth" want, as if they are some unified gang, is foolish - they each have their own plans and wishes, just like every other person. if anything, it is less likely that the sociopaths who reach highest levels of power will cooperate with each other for very long.

Tue, 06/24/2014 - 05:48 | 4888505 vie
vie's picture

It's not necessarily a unified gang, but a shared philosophy.  People in power, coming to the same conclusions using the same methods based on their experience at the same schools and part of the same fraternaties (i.e. Yale/Skull and Bones).

Consider Keynesian economics.  Plenty of people believe that BS.  They're not part of the same "gang", yet they act on it the same way everyone else with the same set of beliefs would.

Unfortunately the "Sociopaths" who are truely in power are not true sociopaths.  They've come to philosophical conclusion that they must act as sociopaths in order to achieve their objectives.  They respect "natural law"... i.e. "might is right"... and "those that do not think for themselves are willingly steak at the table."

The Jesuits are known as "the Vatican Assassins", but also as "the Great Educators".  These two things would seem to be at odds with each other until you understand the Luceferian Philosophy.  There are various groups who follow this philosophy... from what I can tell this is by design.  Madam Blavatsky, and Alice Baily (of Lucius Publishing, formerly Lucifer Publishing for the UN) refers to them generally as "the mystery schools".

Kind of like how 5 corporations control 90% of what we buy.  If they're kept isolated, under different labels, people will not realize they're fighting a single opponent with common objectives.

what you're saying makes no sense, in particular about blavatsky and the theosophical society. while i'm no expert, there is nothing remotely luciferian about them, the ones i've met are decent, intelligent people. i even went to a couple of their gatherings in the 90s out of curiosity...there was nothing at all nefarious going on, just people with a thirst for knowledge and hidden meanings.

they may be a bit out there, but then, if i may say so, so are you, thinking you know the hidden agendas of groups of people around you, because you heard it on the interwebs.

Yes, that's why Alice Baily would name a publishing company, the Lucifer Publishing Company... because I heard it on the interwebs.   Nothing Luceferian about that...

"while i'm no expert, there is nothing remotely luciferian about them, the ones i've met are decent, intelligent people. i even went to a couple of their gatherings in the 90s out of curiosity...there was nothing at all nefarious going on, just people with a thirst for knowledge and hidden meanings."

I'm not sure why you would expect sensitive things that might be construed as "nefarious" to go on at public meetings.  In fact they don't even consider what they believe nefarious, just pure philosophical reasoning.  (Lucifer btw represents the archtype of the first to rebel and think for himself, bringing light to the darkness.)   On the contrary, they believe they're in the right, and the Abrahamic religions are the Satanists who worship the demuirge of the physical universe.  The Abrahamic Satanists who have killed Gnostics such as the Cathars for their reluctance to follow the dogmatic teachings of Jewish, Muslim, or Christians.  

Its also a bit juvenile to assume people sit around and plot world domination all day, anymore than all Muslims sit around planning Jihad at every meeting.  However, if you read some of their most revered liturature, you begin to see the picture emerge.  You understand why they prefer cremation, why they believe a one-world government is necessary at pretty much all costs, and of course why they believe they must be the ones to rule it as "philosopher kings", etc.

It could be worse than that, particularly if it expands beyond the three relatively isolated countries now affected. With the current scramble for Africa there are several thousand worker bees traveling between West Africa, Europe and the US every every day. If it lingers until August - international students will be returning to the US to study in large numbers to US college campuses/germ incubators.

Combined the accidental possibilities with the large amount of truly bio-HAZARD material that each infection creates and the number of US-unfriendly groups such as AQIM, Ansar al-Sharia, Boko Haram and others in the region's next stops on any Ebola Outbreak Tour - Homelandistan is likely find its way to the tour schedule.

Sorry. I understand completely. I myself have been known to enjoy an occasional hysteria. We did have an outbreak of Ebola here in 1989, in Reston, VA, which scared the bejesus out of the Army and the CDC. It was brought here in monkeys imported from the Philippines. Apparently humans weren't susceptable to it, but it sure burned through those monkeys. They still stored the tissue samples and virus explemplars in a level 4 containment.

having followed this for a number of years (maybe 2 decades actually), the survival rate for a reasonbly healthy person in the first world is probably much better.  dehydration is the killer.  and spread of course is not sociable.

so imagine sitting in your bath tub for a few days - vomiting and bleeding, but sucking down bud-lites to stay hydrated, not coming into contact with anybody else, washing the mess down with the shower hose, sucking down a few more buds.

and calling into work - boss - sorry.  bit of ebola, think i best stay home today.  free vacation.  no problem.  feel better pal.

it might be a win/win.  /sarc.

I was thinking Deetroit, but yes, mucho urban renewal potential.

Debtroit doesn't have an optimal population density anymore. DC & NYC with their subways and huge bank and government offices, however...

Not doubting your powers of observation,

  but are you sure that's not Sasquatch?

The test would be if he also eats chicken wings;)

In DC the Ape-Human contact must be lower.  Not non-existent, just lower.

I'm quite curious about the lowering of the fatality rate. Shot is mutating quickly so it can spread to more humans.

The disease is first acquired by a population when a person comes into contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected animal such as a monkey or fruit bat.

God willing, we will prevail in peace and freedom from fear and in true health through the purity and essence of our natural fluids. God bless you all.

Africa? Africa? Wasn't that formerly the name of Chindia?

They started a new TV series "The Last Ship" last night.  Concept:  A deadly virus breaks out in Africa, kills almost humans on the planet.  It's up to tow virologists aboard a US Navy Battleship, to "save humanity", with renegade Russians playing the villains in a neo-cold war in Antarctica.

For all the talk about WMDs... the one form to REALLY fear in the arsenal of ABC weapons, are the B weapons.  It's the perfect method, if there were and Agenda 21 event.  The other two forms have unacceptable collateral damage.  Plus you could immunize some... those elite selected as the Chosen People -- selected randomly by an un-non-manipulated computer, or by less-than-divine inspiration.

For the vultures at the WHO, every disease outbreak is a new fundraising opportunity.

And don't those ignorant fools know that no one uses "health" anymore? They should change their name to the "World Wellness Organization". Get with the program, people!

A good argument for making sure you have some (non-messy) way of leaving the planet painlessly in your prep kit.

A single dose of about 5gm Heroin should do the job - no pain at all.

If you're going, no point in making it hard on yourself.
