Ebola Victim On The Run In West Africa Capital

Tyler Durden's picture

It's gone from bad (Mapping Africa's "Totally Out Of Control" Ebola Epidemic)  to worse, (Head Doctor Fighting Africa's "Out Of Control" Ebola Epidemic Contracts The Virus), to much worse (Liberian Man Tested For Ebola In World's Fourth Most Populous City), to having run out of comparaitves - although we are leery of using a superlative just yet as we have a feeling Africa's Ebola's epidemic will deteriorate before it gets better. But the latest news is bad enough: as Reuters reported moments ago, Sierra Leone officials appealed for help on Friday to trace the first known resident in the capital with Ebola whose family forcibly removed her from a Freetown hospital after testing positive for the deadly disease.

How big is Sierra Leone's capital Freetown: just around 1 million inhabitants, so yes, things are suddenly very much uncontained.


Radio stations in Freetown broadcast the appeal on Friday to locate a woman who tested positive for the disease that has killed 660 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak was first identified in February.


"Saudatu Koroma of 25 Old Railway Line, Brima Lane, Wellington," the announcement said. "She is a positive case and her being out there is a risk to all. We need the public to help us locate her."


Koroma, 32, a resident of the densely populated Wellington neighborhood, had been admitted to an isolation ward while blood samples were tested for the virus, Health ministry spokesman Sidi Yahya Tunis. The results came back on Thursday.


"The family of the patient stormed the hospital and forcefully removed her and took her away," Tunis said. "We are searching for her."

What is just as bad is that even without this latest shocking development, the death toll from the epidemic has already hit 660 according to the WHO, cited by AFP.

And now we await news out of the world's fourth largest city, Nigeria's capital Lagos, where a man collapsed at the airport and is now being tested whether he too had Ebola, and we are confused how the market is not trading at fresh all time highs following what is now a recreation of the plot of the movie Outbreak. Just consider how much GDP was created or not destroyed there.

This is a great read...


The Hot Zone was hailed by many as a chilling and accurate story of lethal viruses and their encounters with humans.[3][4] Because Preston's writing style is that of a "science fact" thriller, some critics[5] accused Preston of dramatizing and exaggerating the effects of an Ebola virus infection and embellishing facts with his own imagination. Since its publication in 1994, however, The Hot Zone is generally regarded as a nonfiction work and acknowledged for its masterful dramatization.[who?] In his blurb, horror writer Stephen King called the book, "one of the most horrifying things I've ever read."

She won't get far...the burn-out is very fast with that shit.  Might infect some others, but they won't get far either.  These things can spread in a large population, but they always burn out because of the extremely fast mortality rate.

Day_Of_The_Tentacle's picture

We are obviously meant to "really-really-notice" this "Ebola on the run" narrative, since it has be on the front page or as sticker post on ZH for unusually long.

So this is what I have noticed:

1) On the 8th March 2014 an entity is able to make an entire airplane vanish out of thin air (MH370)

2) On the 17th July 2014 an entity shoots down a civilian airplane from the same company over Ukraine (MH17)

3) On the 17th July or on early 18th July rebel leaders report that a significant number of bodies are not fresh and there are a lot of medicals in the cargo

This ignited internet speculation, should this report be proven true, that these not fresh bodies are some of the missing passengers from MH370, and that MH117 was orghestrated to dispose of the bodies. The report also ignited speculation that the bodies were carriers of a weaponized biological agent.


Let's just pause there for a sec. Lets take the report about decaying bodies on MH17 at face value and assume it is true.

A) If you were an entity powerful enough to make an entire plane "vanish out of this air", would you really need a second very publicly scrutinized crash to dispose of the bodies. with all the risks of something going wrong in your evil plot, No, you wouldn't. The bodies from MH370 would have been disappeared in a much less public manner.

B) Which makes it logical that the bodies had a specific purpose, because they would not have been onboard otherwise. Enter the weaponized biological agent carrier possibility.

C) Why did international observers not arrive instantaniously at the crash site, when reporters en mas were clearly able to arrive and stay alive from the very first hours after the crash? It must be assumed that personal security for government dispatched international observers can be arranged much better than for a journalist - even if the whole scene was dangerous. Previously, we have had crowned heads, prime ministers and celebrities visiting troops in warzones in Iraq and Afghanistan without much ado.

D) Is the "Ebola on the run" news narrative being ramped up hard right now, because someone knows that a bug has been released in Ukraine, and they need cover for when the first cases starts to become public? So people will automatically connect the seeded dots and think that this is because of free air travel and someone from Africa arriving in Ukraine brought the bug along?

Lets hit play again, and examine a few other tidbits:

4) On the 25th March 2014, ZH runs a piece about a Canadian man, who comes home from West Africa with haemoragic fever illness resembling Ebola, but who tested negative for Ebola itself. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-03-25/ebola-virus-outbreak-spreads-ca... and http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-26726745

5) On the 4th April 2014, ZH report that a plane from Guinea has briefly been quarantined in Paris due to Ebola scare. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-04-04/frontrunning-april-4

6) On the 5th of April, ZH provides a background piece on Ebola, taken from cartel mouthpiece Bloomberg, that was also published on Bloomberg on the 4th April 2014. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-04-05/mapping-worlds-ebola-outbreaks and http://www.bloomberg.com/quicktake/ebola/

7) On the 14th April 2014, SgtReport publish that because of "emerging threats" Haemoragic Fever detection kits have been distributed to the national guard of ALL 50 states up to the 8th April 2014. http://sgtreport.com/2014/04/ebola-detection-kits-deployed-to-national-g...

Lets pause again and evaluate:

E) The man in Canada had an Ebola resembling illness, but it was not Ebola. It was also not Warburg, Rift Valley or Lassa In the article, the WHO speculated that it could be a severe case of malaria. I am not a medical professional, but I call BS on that statement, because as far as I know, malaria is a parasite (=large), which should be readily detectable in the victim. Was this man weaponized with an unknown virus? Or had he contracted a natural mutation? It would be lovely with some follow-up news on his diagnosis.

F) We have potential arrival of Ebola-like symptoms in Canada and Paris, and we have enough worry about the situation in the US for distribution of new detection hardware in all 50 states shortly thereafter.

Play again:

8) On 11th December 2013, ZH reported that a new outbreak of Bubonic Plague had surfaced in Madagascar. Natural or incubator/small test case? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-12-11/black-death-back

9) On the 19th July 2014, immediately after MH-17 crash, ZH reported that the number of Pneumonic Plague cases in Colorado had increased dramatically this year. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-19/three-more-cases-most-deadly-fo...

10) On the 23rd July 2014, immediately after MH-17 crash, ZH reported that China had quarantined an entire city because of 1 case of Bubonic Plague - which made a western medical professional comment out loud that it was an unusually dramatic step to take based on only one case. He speculated that there was "something about this we do not know". http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-23/china-seals-yumen-city-after-ou...

Pause again:

G) Did anyone here on ZH or other blogs research the Trans Asia Air crash (23th July 2014) and the Air Algerie crash (24th July 2014) to see, who were on board, what was in the cargo and if there were any similarities in terms of irregularities in flight path, ATC communications, eyewitness accounts, ownership, insurance policies, options trades etc.? If so - please share.  

H) By now it is pretty clear to me either that we are supposed to accept un-free air travel and airport closures "for our own safety" at some point in the nearer future. Maybe someone needs to control a coming spike in the oil-price with reduced jet-fuel consumption. Or maybe all these reports are indeed flak laid out for a case of something nasty coming out of Ukraine. If that turns out to not be the case or ot is the case but it is successfully contained, then - if nothing else - these stories can conveniently be used to support the over-population meme later.

I) But of course there is a bigger picture as well. This picture is very unclear to me, but there are a few characteristics that bugs me profoundly. Earlier on we had outbreaks of the H5N1 avian flu in Asia. This mutated into a H7N9, which is more likely to infect humans, in an Chinese epidemic in 2013. Earlier again we had the SARS epidemic in Asia, that suddenly vanished. We have MERS largely contained in the Middle East. And then we have had the wildly exaggerated Swine Flu scare in Europe, which begs the question, if someone was deliberately crying wolf to de-sensitize the public enough to not pay attention, when the real mass-killer arrives - or if the swine-flu actually started out as a real serious threat, but was contained somehow, and we were never told the truth (I think, I remember that there was a much deadlier variant on the loose in Mexico). 

Here is what bugs me (pun intended): 

a) One scientist came out during the Avian Flu and said that the DNA sequence of one of the avian flu's (I forget which one) was engineered. That this sequence could not have been a result of natural mutation. 

b) If I recall correctly, SARS has been reported to hit only Asian people. The victims of H7N9 has a significant over-representation of older men (and the disease is centered in China, which interesting enough also has an over-population of men, who will eventually become older, due to the one-child policy). 

c) MERS is largely contained in the Middle East. 

d) The swine-flu killed old people and children. 

Of course, older people are generally more vulnerable also to the normal flu, so these observations may be entirely natural, but I just cannot help wondering - with all this global airtravel - how these different types of infectious diseases manages to stay roughly with in the same geografical region or the same demografic group.

In any case, I guess we will know within the next 20-30 days, if MH-17 had small blind passengers on larger blind passengers, or of this is just another product of the collective warped minds of unemployed internet tinfoilers being bored in their mothers' basements.

Lore's picture

Hello DOTT,

This is an interesting bit of speculation.  You might repost it under the next virus-related ZH article so as to invite more feedback, since the ZH article above is already getting a bit stale, so your notes will not benefit from the same traffic. 

Here's my thought:  Elites are unlikely to release an agent that could pose a significant threat to themselves. The trouble with all viruses when considering them for biowarfare is that they are susceptible to a phenomenon called Antigenic Shift: different viruses come into contact with each other in your bloodstream (or elsewhere) and exchange DNA in dangerously unpredictable and uncontrollable ways, resulting sometimes in benign products and sometimes in new viruses that can be devastating.  Knowledge of this danger is what drives the elites to spend a tremendous amount of money funding projects to dig up old viruses, catalog their DNA and study and experiment with them for the primary purpose of understanding how they behave. The value of this research is primarily anticipatory and pre-emptive in nature: "If there is a danger to 'us,' 'we' want our scientists to be ready with a vaccine." 

Some very bad bugs seem to be making a comeback lately, for various reasons that include overuse of antibiotics and bizarre government policy decisions. Whooping cough is making a terrible comeback in my region, yet there is no coverage. Why?!  Ebola seems to pop up in the media periodically. I don't know why this episode is particularly large, but expect that it will be contained now that there has been some public alert and measures are being taken.  Why did Swine Flu pop up immediately after the President's visit to Mexico?  Dunno.  The very name seems like some perverse inside joke, as in "When pigs fly."

As for the bodies of MH17 being in an advanced state of decay, the credibility of that information is another open question.  It appears that a large number of bodies are being repatriated under controlled conditions. If there is a bioagent, it will become obvious in the locations where those bodies are stored. Most realistically, the bodies were just smelly because they were exposed to hot sun, which speeds decomposition.

Day_Of_The_Tentacle's picture

Thank you Lore. I will do that, if we get another fresh thread on the subject, as you are right I was a bit late to the party here ;-) If you don't mind, I would like to bring your answer forward with it, if the opportunity comes up again. Is that ok? About the decaying bodies - no matter how outragious this report sounds, I have found a few pics and audio in various videos, that tells me this information should not be ruled out yet. So I am trying to keep an open mind for now. Of course the forensic experts in Holland will know instantly, when they examine the remains. If they do find inconsistencies, I am just not sure, if they will be reported to the public.

Any flights on Malaysian Airlines?  They are very effecient.  They reuse their 777's so they can get 2 false flags out of one plane.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

People this is getting serious. I cannot tell you how many active cases of TB I am seeing from people getting off international plane flights. I'm talking 4+ positive smears. Highly infective. This NEVER happened before in the 30 years I've been in the field. Active symptomatic cases of TB would not be allowed to board a plane. Not a peep from public Heath in the recent cases I have seen. I would consider flying quite hazardous now. At least getting blown out of the sky would be a faster death.


Monty Burns's picture

The region of west Africa has a population of about 300 million. And we have 660 cases. That's almost one in a million.  Hardly an uncontainable outbreak, is it?

balanced's picture

That's actually over 2 in a million, but point taken. The reason it's a big deal is the ever-increasing likelyhood of an exponential rise in cases. Infectious diseases spread in an exponential fashion. That's why it's so important to contain them while they're small.

Citxmech's picture

The incubation period for Ebola is 2-21 days.  Once you experience symptoms - you die quickly.  Beforehand you can infect people, and even after you recover (if you recover) you can infect people for up to 7 weeks,

This is bad shit and only "burns out" because it mostly occurs in isolated small villages.  I don't think it has hit a large population center like this until now.

Obama and his Feds will buy her the plane ticket to bypass Mexico and come here.

IMPORT: Feds consider letting Hondurans into USA without making trek...


Miffed Microbiologist's picture

You may have a point. The last bad TB case I had landing in San Diego went straight to the hospital. They knew what was going on. I called a Public Health nurse I know and asked WTF is going on. She told he this was a political asylum case and they are allowed to bypass screening so their hands are tied. So, I guess if you are labeled a "political refugee" you have carte Blanche to come to this country no matter how infective you are.

The part that has me so baffled is these cases use to always hit national news. When a TB case is discovered, public health would get the manifest of each flight and notify everyone they have had a possible exposure. After so many people being informed of this, it's no surprise the news would carry the story. But the last few cases I have had, this has not happened. Fortunately, they haven't been drug resistant strains.

I guess since the elite travel mostly on private jets they simply don't care what happens on commercial planes.


Bad Attitude's picture

Miffed, the "refugees" have become a political hot potato as US citizens begin to realize that these refugees are disease vectors. Everything with the Obama regime is political, and publicly acknowledging the real TB risk these refugees pose to the US would create a far worse backlash than exists now.

I can hardly wait for Dear Leader to inject himself into the middle of this nascent Ebola epidemic, with the result being its spread to other continents.

Forward (over the cliff)!

Paveway IV's picture

Jeeze... Doesn't anyone read anymore?


Save_America1st: "...These things can spread in a large population, but they always burn out because of the extremely fast mortality rate..."

The proportion of fatal cases for this outbreak so far is about 60%. Those 40% can still be infectious up to two months AFTER they recover. Not everyone bleeds from their eyeballs or vomits up their intestines - some people just get really sick, recover and are never diagnosed. They are infectious around the time they start feeling sick. The current outbreak is only four months old. Give it another six or eight weeks.

That's if the disease doesn't mutate to a more virulent form. Every new case is another chance for that. It may have happened already for all anyone knows.

Monty Burns: "...The region of west Africa has a population of about 300 million. And we have 660 cases..."

We had 1,093 suspected/probable/confirmed cases as of Wednesday. There have been 660 supsected/probable/confirmed ebola deaths.

And the West African States Economic Community of 15 states doesn't even have 300 million yet, do they? 2013: Liberia 3.8M + Guinea 10.6M + Sierra Leone 5.4M. That's 20M people total, but maybe only 8-10M in the affected areas. The first known case was barely four months ago. It's not an epidemic or a pandemic, but make no mistake: it's a damn serious outbreak.

"...Hardly an uncontainable outbreak, is it?..."

Depends on how you define uncontainable. West Africa has huge pig farms, which also have tons of fruit bats. Did the virus make that jump, or is it actually just coming from bush meat like fruit bats? They're just guessing right now, but it seems like a bush meat source only. Could the virus jump from infected humans or fruit bats to pigs or beef cows? We don't know - no outbreak has ever been this large. If we do find out something unknown vector like that, it will be about two weeks after the fact. 

It also depends on how many new cases are human-to-human. Did 1063 people all eat tainted bush meat, or did three of them? Again, it's all guessing. Tainted bush meat is suspected as the initial vector. If that stopped today (unlikely), how much effect would that have? It might eliminate the current outbreak, or it may have almost no effect. If the primary vector NOW is human-to-human, bushmeat may not matter anymore.

Also depends on how virulent the current strain has become. The doctors and nurses that work with patients are unlikely to be sloppy with their infectious disease control procedures, especially their personal ones. I mean, it's ebola - right? Yet the top doctor treating the outbreak in Sierra Leone (who probably knows a thing or two about ebola) was diagnosed with the disease on Monday. Nurses have come down with it as well. Now, how do you suppose that happened? The guy probably wears a moon suit to work, not a plastic apron and rubber gloves. How long do you think he has had it? Well, they don't know the answer to any of those questions. Does that sound like a very 'contained' outbreak?

Citxmech: "...Once you experience symptoms - you die quickly..."

No you don't - it's not like it is in the movies. Everyone is different. You may die the next day or be sick for four weeks and recover. Like most other diseases, it's always worse for those otherwise sick, the elderly and the immunocomprimised. Since you don't know how any one person is going to be affected, you have to treat everyone like they might be the lucky one-third that will actually survive.

I think you're equating symptoms to being infectious - they are kind of related, but how do you know if someone on a 10-hour flight with you has flu-like symptoms? Can you catch it from aerosolized mucus if he coughs or sneezes? They say probably not, but then the bushmeat-eater demographic are probably not frequent fliers so the sample size is kind of small.

This also assumes people in West Africa are willing to go to a hospital if they become ill. There's little reason to do that for most of them. It's like going to prison. If there is no cure except 'drink plenty of water', then they're not going to be rushing the WHO camps when they get the sniffles. Likewise, if an outbreak happened in the U.S., how many people would line up for the FEMA boxcars for a trip to a 'medical camp' for few weeks of useless, pallative care?

After Generalissimo Stompyfeet marched out and declared "This is the United States of America; we’re not some banana republic!" I would have figured Americans who don't travel abroad would have finally accepted their banana republic status and started getting vaccinated for TB.

But is there any research or anecdotal evidence that BCG is less effective at preventing the newer cases of TB?

Miffed - what are the DIY mitigations and treatments? I hope it is more than dig holes in advance.

Oh dear crawdaddy, I hate to say it but with Ebola it's have a nice Scotch, watch the sunset and kiss your sorry ass good bye. A pre dug hole in advance would be helpful to your loved ones. Or possibly a funeral pyre.

With TB, this is definitely a droplet transmissible disease. So full personal protective gear is in order. Gown, gloves and mask. Do not touch mucus membranes. Wear a full body condom in public. Have you ever seen that movie by Woody Allan Every Thing You Wanted To Know About Sex ( but were afraid to ask) where he plays the sperm? Just like that outfit but add more facial protection. And watch out for fomites! Dear God, any innocuous item could be the instrument of death!

Ok, now I'm starting to get a bit paranoid myself.


strangewalk's picture

Most people who carry the tubercluosis bacteria don't come down with the actual disease unless their immune system becomes weakened. It's estimated that over 70% of the people in China's southern Guangdong Province (adjacent to Hong Kong) are carriers. Even then, TB can be treated with antibiotics unless it's one of the multiple drug resistant strains (MDR TB), which health officials are seeing much more frequently even in developed countries. Tubercluosis has been one of the greatest infectious disease killers of human history, but surprisingly most are not aware that the death count from TB is now today much greater than at any prior time. 

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

This is true. The vast majority of the cases I see are latent ( culture positive smear negative). A significant number of these patients will become infectious when they are elderly when their immune system wanes or when they go on immunosuppressive drugs. I have seen numerous cases when latent elderly Asians come to USA legally and then turn smear positive ( infectious). TB itself is not extraordinarily lethal. Certainly not on the level of Ebola. However, it is unwise to increase the rate of any disease in any population. People forget there were numerous diseases common to this country years ago. They ravaged the population, especially the poor. Through diligent public health and sanitation, they were eliminated. Now there is no one left alive that remembers these days and we are taking our relatively disease free state for granted. I don't think people in the USA have a clue what it is like to live in a third world nation but they will experience it first hand if we don't stop this before these diseases take hold.
