New York City Hospital Quarantines Man With Ebola-Like Symptoms Who Walked Into ER

Tyler Durden's picture




 

UPDATE (via Mt.Sinai Press Conference):

* * *

As CBS reports,

A patient at Mount Sinai hospital is being tested after traveling to a country where the Ebola virus is present, the hospital said in a statement.

 

The man arrived at Mount Sinai’s emergency room early Monday morning with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms.

 

The man told doctors he had recently traveled to a West African country where Ebola is present, the hospital said.

 

The man has been placed in “strict isolation” and is undergoing various tests to determine the cause of the symptoms, the hospital said.

 

All appropriate steps to keep patients, staff and visitors safe are being taken, the hospital said.

Let's hope we do not start adding to this...

*  *  *

NY Times adds,

A hospital spokeswoman, Dorie Klissas, said that to protect the patient’s privacy the hospital was not making public his occupation, which country he had been in, whether he had been exposed to a patient with Ebola there, or whether he had close contacts like family members, friends or co-workers who were also at risk. Ms. Klissas said the patient’s blood was being tested for Ebola, but she declined to say when the test results would be available.

 

...

 

Ian Michaels, a spokesman for the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, said that another patient was isolated at a hospital in the city last week after arriving on a flight from West Africa and showing symptoms found in Ebola patients.

 

That man was screened at Kennedy International Airport on Wednesday night and taken to Bellevue Hospital. He had a fever, but within a day the fever had gone away and it became clear that he did not have Ebola. Mr. Michaels did not know the details of the tests performed on the man.

 

“We are on a heightened state of alert,” he said. “We have instructed all 11 of our hospitals to follow C.D.C. guidelines and be on the lookout for Ebola-like symptoms.”

As we noted previously, this is what to expect if Ebola comes to America

Here is the internal email from Mt. Sinai:

Subject: Patient with Febrile Illness and Recent Travel to West Africa
TO: All Faculty, Staff and Students
 
FROM: Kenneth L. Davis, MD
Chief Executive Officer and President
Mount Sinai Health System
 
Dennis S. Charney, MD
Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
President for Academic Affairs
Mount Sinai Health System
 
DATE: August 4, 2014
 
RE: Patient with Febrile Illness and Recent Travel to West Africa
 
A patient with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms, after recent travel to a West African country where Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) has been reported, presented to the Emergency Department at The Mount Sinai Hospital last night. The patient has been placed in strict isolation, and is currently undergoing medical screenings to determine the cause of the symptoms. All necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff.
 
The Incident Command Centers of The Mount Sinai Hospital and the Mount Sinai Health System have been activated and are working together in a unified fashion. The Mount Sinai Health System has been activated to a (HICS) Level 1 Alert. The Mount Sinai Hospital has been activated to (HICS) Level 2.
 
The Department of Emergency Management and the Division of Infectious Diseases at The Mount Sinai Hospital are employing all necessary infection control measures to protect patients and staff and to continue to provide the best care to our patients.  It is important to note that EVD can only be transmitted through direct contact with bodily fluids. The infection cannot be transmitted through casual contact.
 
General Information Regarding EVD:
 

  • As of August 1, 2014, approximately 1,300 cases (suspected and confirmed) had been reported in the West African countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
  • EVD is a severe, often fatal disease (case fatality is 55 to 60%).
  • Along with direct contact with bodily fluids, including infected blood, urine, sweat, semen and breast milk, exposure to objects (e.g., needles, sharps) contaminated with infected bodily fluids can spread the infection.
  • Patients with EVD are potentially infectious from onset of fever until weeks or months after recovery.
  • Ebola symptoms can appear from 2 to 21 days after exposure to the virus, with 8 to 10 days being the most common. Symptoms typically include fever, headache, muscle and joint pain (myalgias/arthralgias), weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
  • Hemorrhagic symptoms include broken blood vessels in the eyes (conjunctival hemorrhage), easy bruising, and GI bleeding.

Reporting:
 
Contact the Infectious Disease Attending on call or Infection Control for further guidance.
Immediately report all suspected cases of EVD to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOH) at 866-692-3641866-692-3641 .
 
For additional, accurate information, please visit the CDC’s webpage: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola.
 
We will continue to keep you updated.

Q- Why was an ebola patient brought into the US?

A - Profit is in treatment, not cure. So develop a vaccine. But how many Africans will be able to afford it and make big pharma money?  Solution: sell vaccine to a wealthy population. But what if that wealthy population does not have the disease? Again easy solution - give that population the opportunity to contract the disease. Hence, patient brought into America!

"Under conditions of the current study, transmission of ZEBOV could have occurred either by inhalation (of aerosol or larger droplets), and/or droplet inoculation of eyes and mucosal surfaces and/or by fomites due to droplets generated during the cleaning of the room. Infection of all four macaques in an environment, preventing direct contact between the two species and between the macaques themselves, supports the concept of airborne transmission."

Bamako, the capital of Mali is very close to the border of Guinea. A city of almost 2,000,000 people could be in the crosshairs of the Ebola outbreak. Not to mention 4,000 plus French troops in country, as well as an unknown number of US troops.

Consider that any confirmed case in a NYC hospital, and the density of people there, the number of degrees from someone with some type of contact with that person might only be 3 or 4.

You're confusing Bush with Jim Jones.

Can Ebola be transmitted via Kool-Aid? Is there a particular flavor which is more favorable? We need to send some congressmen on a fact-finding trip. 535 one-way airline tickets to Africa would be worth the cost, I suppose. Get Barry to go, by building a golf course over there in his home continent.

Even if this fellow has Ebola do you really think Mt Sinai would tell you his test was positive?

Same with the women who collapsed at Gatwick. No way the gubmints are going to allow their news media or doctors or labs report the actual test results to the Sheeples even if the test was positive. Can you imagine the reaction in NYC? How about tracking down all those people who were on that women's flight? In the terminal?...and so on.

BTW, is "Sheeples" capitalized?

Look it up. This is no bullshit.

If Ebola isn't transmitted 'casually', why do the docs wear SPAESUITS? The two 'aid workers' shipped back to infect us (oops, er, I mean 'for treatment') ALSO wore full hazmat suits, but I guess it didn't help. there is NO TREATMENT AVAIABLE, and casualty rates have been reported of between 50% and 90% for this partucular mutation. G.M. tobacco is being looked at as one vector of treatment (no shit...look THAT one up as well). WMD's are things like radiological, bacterial, and GERM warfare. This also includes parasites (scabies, lice, etc.).

Mon, 08/04/2014 - 20:05 | 5046639 MontgomeryScott
MontgomeryScott's picture

On an aside;

WHY do 'THEY' decide to name a death a 'CASUALTY' when someone dies against their will; and not of their fault or making?

Is death 'CASUAL'?

Does this mean that all people who 'casually' die are wearing 'polyester Lesiure Suits'; or 'Friday CASUAL wear'? Is a 'CASUALTY' the same thing as 'COLLATERAL DAMAGE'; or is it more (or less) important to the addicted masses? When a cop or five opens up on a citizen when effecting a search warrant on the wrong address in the 'war on drugs' and the victim dies with 78 holes in his body after bleeding out and twitching a lot, is this a 'CASUALTY'; or is this called 'COLLATERAL DAMAGE' in the 'WAR' on 'DRUGS'? Did they open fire because of the polyester Leisure Suit, or the Friday CASUAL wear? If I wear a suit and tie, will I be able to avoid being a 'CASUALTY' because I am dressed formally? If they still shoot me and ruin my suit, will I be declared a 'MORTALITY' instead? Is it because my suit got ruined?

If Bill Hicks or George Carlin were still alive, I'd be feeding them SO MUCH raw material right now!

So....if you're exposed to Ebola ONLY through contact, are they suggesting that those 100 "health workers" were not using proper sanitation and contact practices?   Or did someone just sneeze on all 100 of them.

Logic sort of suggests to me that these health workers were being cautious, but this disease was more "spreadable" than they anticipated.   And me thinks...at the top of the list of things the African countries need to fear is a total walkout of all healthcare workers, professional or not.   THEN...you're in trouble.

I hate to say it but I think this shit has gone airborn, that would explain the spread of the virus and why they brought the patients back to the US.  If it is airborn it is only a matter of time before it gets to the US (which it may have already). Also why bring the patients in a negative pressure tent if it is only spread via body fluids?  The only reason they send doctors to the remote areas is to try and contain it and make sure it does not mutate into a airborn virus. This time I believe they were to late, which means pull your people out and start working on a cure ASAP.  Game over...

Oh, no, those are the wrong questions.

Think about THIS one:

WHAT if Bloomberg's P.R. people decided this would be a great P.R. stunt, and actually sent him in to visit the patient? The mayor 'really cares' for the little people, see? He could disprove the 'rumors' that Ebloa isn't transmitted by 'casual contact'! Maybe he could give the patient the 'kiss of death' on the forehead (just for the cameras)! Do you think this would help his re-election?

The remake of 'Weekend At Bernie's' would have to have a name change, I suppose.

Answer 1: The patient walked in to the emergency room (see the article). Transportation from outside this venue is not known.

Answer 2: Everyone present when the patient walked in to the emergency room was exposed; along with everyone this 'patient' has had contact with since contracting the virus. Everyone who has treated this patient; along with everyone who is in the ward, and all the service workers (food service, laundry, janitorial, etc.) is also potentially exposed, and this is a continuing situation.

(Thank you, Mr. Obvious!)

For everyone wondering about quarantines and other measures, consider this:

"Health authorities struggling to control the worst outbreak of Ebola on record said drastic action is needed to prevent more deaths."

Now consider that the comment above was published by Bloomberg on June 26, over a month ago. Apparently open borders, continued air service and a summit in Washington DC are "drastic actions".

"'This is no longer a country-specific outbreak but a sub-regional crisis that requires firm action by governments and partners,' said Luis Sambo, the WHO’s regional director for Africa. 'WHO is gravely concerned of the ongoing cross-border transmission into neighboring countries as well as the potential for further international spread.'"

A week ago, even yesterday, I thought we had some pretty strong scare-mongering in play to facilitate some social programming. Today I think it is just a bit more serious. And by saying "a bit" I really mean "a lot".

PS - The Bloomberg article had this optimistic tidbit, "[t]he outbreak is expected to last another three to four months." Anyone betting this is over by the end of September?

"[t]he outbreak is expected to last another three to four months." 

Well, when an organ of the state controlled media can opine on something as speculative as this, one must wonder just how out of control this situation really is.

Seriously, why try to find a rational explanation when a nice conspiracy theory provides far more entertainment value.

You are viewing this from the wrong perspective (in my STRONG opinion).

The very fact that these motherfuckers are announcing the length of time of this outbreak indicates that they have not only plotted the TIMELINE IN ADVANCE, but are also in control of this timeline (which also indicates by admission that they have a VERY GOOD IDEA of the scope of this outbreak).

Try A LITTLE to think outside your little media and school-controlled view of 'how things really are'.

GEE.

Since THEY KNOW how long the outbreak will LAST, do you think they have ALSO performed the 'statistical analysis' of the virulence of their strain that they have released? In all honesty, you appear to be either a STUPID motherfucker OR "CONTROLLED OPPOSITION" for NOT CONSIDERING these FACTS that are READILY APPARENT.

Is it a 'wild conspiracy theory'  or TRUTH that governments have developed and deployed viruses and bacteria in warfare in the past, say, 120 years or so? Is it ALSO TRUE that the 'Ebola Virus' DID NOT EXIST before, say, 1976 or so?

Yup.

'CONTROLLED OPPOSITION', I think.

(ADDENDUM: Anal sex with full body suits has been approved by both the CDC and the HHS. Naturally, copious amounts of water-based lubricant will be required, as long as the water has been tested and approved by US. Anal sex with monkeys, while not 'officially approved' is still safe as long as these remidial measures are taken (but it might be difficult to talk the monkey in to wearing a hazmat suit; in which case the DHS has offered their services in their duly-appointed mission to see that everyone gets fucked in the ass. TSA has also expressed their willingness to search cavities, in order to insure a satisfying experience. Sex with other farm animals might cause a fee to be levied, such as 'Chicken-Choking'; from which the term 'Chicken-Pox' was originally derived. Thank you for logging on to your government PSA.

There may not be a Cure forthcoming, but there will most certainly be a 'Treatment' of sorts, as the headlines show:  "IC Treatment" - The very best that tax money and private donations can provide.

Hint:  They Hope & Plan to build up a large enough 'Inventory' of Survivors, to leverage that level of 'Immunity Robustness' into a Treatment or Cure.  These guys are smart, creative, and fame & profit-driven.  Don't underestimate the intellectual hubris of the medical researchers or the profit motive of the MBAs, as I already referred to in an earlier post today (14:47 | 5044945), and predating  the 16:07 | 5045392 post from Pladizow above.  I'm sure he came to the same conclusion independently.

I was speaking strictly as a biologist.

To your idea they will hatch an epidemic in order to have a stable of survivors; that seems plausable enough. They probably imagine they can contain this somehow so that it is both sadly tragic and usefully terrifying, then trot out some kind of serum-derived treatment for anyone important or wealthy. Notice, next to no lab work or research required, they just need blood serum from survivors. Easy money --  and lots of it too -- from the rich who live in fear of not being able to enjoy their ill-gotten gains as long as possible.

Though I wonder about the "containment" part of their plan, if that is in fact the plan.

The uninformed hysteria on ZH and the media in general would be laughable if it wasn't so pathetically sad and depressing that people are so gullible.

There won't be a vaccine developed for ebola, certainly not one for widespread use.  Ebola is of a variety of viruses that mutate rapidly, so any virus would likely not work on the next strain to appear.  Also, ebola affects so few people that it wouldn't be economical to vaccinate any large group of people.  Yes, yes, death toll from the current outbreak is approaching 1,000 and it is sad BUT... nearly 2,000 people died TODAY from malaria.

For all those people prepping for the ebola zombie apocalypse, bear in mind that the reason this disease spreads in the third world is the total lack of modern medical care and insanely unhygienic practices from the bronze age.  You could end up with a case or two in the US, but ebola just isn't transmittable enough for a sustained outbreak in a modern society.

Rather than a virus, it's more likely to see an anti-viral drug that can be used as a treatment after infection.  The "serum" that the doctor from Atlanta received is such an anti-viral drug meant to combat with Marburg, a related virus.

john39's picture

also, the salt is taken at medicinal levels, up to 20 grams a day...  it will raise the levels in your body, as long as you keep regular dosing as set out in the instructions...   in other words, you reset normal homeostasis...    nothing unusual about this, saline drips are quite common (although for a different purpose).

for anyone with health issues, i have found salt dosing to be incredibly helpful.  have been doing it for at least a year now.

One does not "reset" homoeostasis. If that were possible it wouldn't be "static" in the first place and they would call it something else.

That much salt intake will eventually cause you trouble as your body reacts. Excess salt increases hypertension which can result in heart attack or stroke. Excess salt also leads to water retention (as the body tries to dilute the sodium in the blood stream to a safe level) and water bloat can effect eyes (your vision may blur) hands, feet and joints. Since water retention reduces the concentration of salt in tissues, you have accomplished nothing at the cellular level and only placed a strain on your body and internal organs, in particular kidneys, as they attempt to cope.

Do as you like but honestly I don't think you ought to be dispensing medical advice without presenting your qualifying credentials and citing peer-reviewed research that supports your claims.

I didn't get healthy until I dumped mainstream medicine.   anyone who stays with the big pharma controlled medical system is doomed.  that should fairly obvious to anyone paying attention. 

one example, that salt causes hypertension is not accurate.  This is as flawed as the "studies" that showed that natural fats caused heart disease (but refined vegetable oils were good for you).  that advice killed a lot of people.   Same thing on the salt, wrong:

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/its-time-to-end-the-war-on-salt/

as for my use of the term homeostasis...  the point is you can easily raise salt levels in your body by supplementing periodically through the day...  and back to the original point, doing so has very beneficial effects in treating various maladies that mainstream medicine can't do much, if anything, for....

edit. turns out i was wrong again, you can 'reset' homeostasis...  depending on conditions...  for example, wanting to set a higher baseline of some condition or level in the body... exactly the point i was trying to make.

here is one example:

http://science.jrank.org/pages/3364/Homeostasis-Negative-feedback.html

but there are many others...  so, back once again to the point...  you want want to be healthy, salt is your friend...

So, I tried to look up 'Homeostasis' (as I actually know what this term refers to).

The Encyclopedia told me to go to the 'Nervous System' (subtitle Divisions Of the Nervous System; The Peripheral Nervous System). It went in to the various devisions of the AUTONOMIC nervous System (like the sympathetic and parasympathetic), and after a bunch of other crap that sounds as though the authors were trying to sound self-important, it FINALLY got around to describing 'HOMEOSTASIS' in the same terminology as the definition of the word 'EQUILIBRIUM' is used mathematically (or, in certain 'economic theories').

HOMEOSTASIS is that state of being in the human body which describes a state where there is no reaction needed to maintain the current at-rest state (also known as the state of 'equilibrium). This has NOTHING to do with salt uptake (or the effects of Ebola). When one is DEAD, they are ALSO thought to be in a state of 'homeostasis' (that being, the state at which the body is at rest from labor; 'suspended animation' so to speak).

This discussion should rather be discussing PROGENITORS and DEGENETORS of the constantly-changing human body (instead of embracing a state of DEATH such as 'homeostasis').

SALT is an alkaline. I suppose 'EBOLA' is an ACID (at least, according to your discussions). TELL US what the Ph level is supposed to be in order to combat this (or, in ZH terms, how many McDonald's French Fries are required in order to keep from contracting this 'disease' that is totally 'naturally-occurring' [it IS, isn't it?]).

THUSLY, we may ALL achieve a state of 'HOMEOSTASIS' ('EQUILIBRIUM', or 'DEATH')!

I think I will go long on Morton-Thyocol (SHIT! The pesky 'Space-Shuttle Incident' seems to be an issue here! MORMON SALT MINERS from UTAH should NEVER have gotten involved in solid rocket booster fuel technologies sponsored by the D.C. MIC! They should have stuck to fucking their sisters and goats and chickens and their other wives!).

SALT IS YOUR FRIEND! Especially when you are the one being spit-roasted over the open fire! When BEEF is in a state of HOMEOSTASIS, it is a good idea to liberally SALT the beef (along with other spices) so that it can be consumed at a later date by meat-eating HOMEOSAPIENS without exposing them to pathogens.

If SALT is so good, then the diet of the average Westerner has already immunized them from infection!

I'm not here to 'set a higher baseline' on the 'condition of the body' or 'reset' homeostasis ('level the playing field' in regards to the sustainability of the human body or the weakening of it via losses incurred due to the dietary nutritional lack because of the losses of all other nutrients in the latter half of the 20th century which inhibit the absorption of a basic mineral that most call 'salt' in to their biological machines in a beneficial way). Im here to point out that your thinking is completely and totally ONE-DIMENSIONAL; and that your modus opparandi will guarantee that everyone who listens to your 'cure' will be destined to succumb (without other remidial actions).

If you stay focused on ONE VERSE (or one chapter), then you are subject to be a victim of the 'ENDLESS LOOP' version of the theory of ENTROPY (one of the basic laws of Thermodynamics).

As for me, I think I want a 'Big Mac', and extra 'special sauce', along with some 'Freedom Fries' (extra-sized). The D.U. rounds and the phosphorous rounds and the Fukishima radiation and the EBOLA will have NOTHING on ME, BABY, because I ATE MY FUCKING SALT!

You fucks can't literally be SERIOUS.

Like lots of people, I cut down on salt back when they said it raised hypertension. Remember the days in HS when every water can had a salt pill dispenser rivited to it, next to the cups? By mid 70's they were gone and restaurant food had little salt, wife cooked with less, etc.

So I'd been taking Saw Palmetto and later prescription stuff for my poor prostate for 15 years, I was pissing 4-5 timjes a night and nothing helped. Had terrible cramps, particularly in my hands and often while driving, had several near wrecks trying to get off the highway when I couldn't grip the wheel. Tried balancing all alkalyne metals with supplements. Asked my doc about the cramps, she said 'all cramps come from bad circulation'. Tried EDTA for circulation, worthwhile but no help with cramps.

Last year, hands cramping, bought 2 bags of salted peanuts and a Guiness. Drove seven more hours with no more cramps. Concsiously upped my salt intake, started pissing once a night, no more cramps.

Eat salt, it's good for you.

As an aside, I also had leg cramps at night, very painful and lasting a long time. A local cure is to hold an iron or stainless steel object between the toes for a few moments. (I like a toenail clipper) Evidently the objecft acts as an antenna, dissapating some sort of charge which builds up in the body due to not enough conductivity in the body's electrolytes. This actually works within 5 minutes, usually less, relaxes the cramp in a tenth the time it takes to rub one out. ( a cramp, dammit)

Surprisingly, aluminum, copper, etc don't do it, the dissapater needs to be iron or steel.

I know how the term is defined, but i don't know in what context you using it.   salt? lyme? water?

a body can be totally depleted of nutrients and yet appear superficially stable.   The body also carries numerous pathogens to which the body has stopped reacting.  They might not kill you, but they will affect your health negatively.

If you bleed from your wounds, I will rub salt in them (as your enemy).

If your body carries pathogens to which you have stopped reacting, you are obviously a 'carrier', and shall be quarantined (for the benefit of those who might be exposed to your contact). Do LEPERS rub salt in their wounds; and can they even feel it when they do; as it dissolves their flesh?

What would be the metabolic pathway to cure a viral infection using an herb? How does that work?

Virus are not alive. They cannot be poisoned or shut down. That's why "antibiotics" have no effect at all; a virus is not even alive enough to kill. To control a virus the host must rapidly build up their own immunity to it's proteins, and the trick is then to disassemble them (being the reverse of the illness which is the host being forced to build them in the first place).

Think whatever you want but the problem is both simpler to state and yet vastly more complex to manage than you are supposing.

are you saying that nothing harms a virus?  obviously that is not accurate.  Not only does the body have its own defenses against viruses, (and bacteria and fungal pathogens) but there are many substances that aid the body in its efforts, or that kill viruses by themselves. 

your issue is that you are ignoring the points made because they come from outside mainstream medicine.  your loss, but at least try and raise relevant points for discussion.

btw, tea is an "herb", but there are numerous studies to show that it possess anti-viral properties...  

"Antiviral effects of green tea have been demonstrated against the influenza virus, as well as against the Herpes simplex virus, tobacco mosaic virus, enterovirus, rotavirus, Epstein Barr virus, HIV virus. Yet, green tea catechins have been shown to have antiviral activities against HIV infection."

BioCryst Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: BCRX), has seen its stock price increase to more than $13, a 23 percent increase from the close on July 17, and an 80 percent increase from May 8. On Monday, it set a new 52-week high of $13.65 before settling down to close at $13.22 with nearly three times the average trading volume.

The Durham drug developer has a drug in its pipeline that has shown promise against viral infections like Ebola and others, including Marburg and Rift Valley Fever.

The company has received attention from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the Health and Human Services department, including $7.5 million in awards that could increase to $22 million if HHS exercises all contract options. In March, BioCryst reported that its drug under development – called BCX4430 – protected rodents against Marbug and Ebola infections.

BioCryst is set to report a quarterly update on Tuesday and is expected to give further update on the trials for BCX4430 as well.

CHIMERA.

You should research this term.

The usage of the term 'HYBRID' is so diluted as of this time as to be almost NO meaning to most. ALSO, the term 'STEM CELL RESEARCH' as well as the tem 'GENE SPLICING'.

The facts involved are NOT 'SUPPOSITION'.

VIRUSES are ALIVE (but not in the sense that you seem to define as 'life').

The term 'From Chaos, Order' comes to mind. The issues are far deeper than your simple three-dimensional construct indicates.

You're absolutely right! If you notice they are also slowly removing the iodine from the refined garbage too. I switched to underground mined sea salt with trace minerals years ago. Also referring back to Carnicom's work, I suspected we all have trouble with deficiency in minerals & absorption. Look at the trees dying from the chemtrails. This is why. The sulphuric acid is inhibiting mineral absorption. Flouride, chlorine, bromine are killing our thyroids, depleting iodine. This is one reason for the high incidence of both breast & prostate cancers. These reproductive organs need iodine & compete with the thyroid for it. You must also take a pinch of sea salt & selenium for thyroid uptake.

Nutrition is our only hope from these monsters short of divine intervention.

the truth is pretty horrible, that is certain...  they are trying to fundamentally change the earth.  but the real question that few will ask is, why?

that one takes you down a rabbit hole that doesn't have a bottom.

John, I had also seen the tobacco link. Very interesting. All these plants and trees and resins and such, whispering in the wind....

J39, there were so many holes in that link. 

C can be taken to bowel tolerance & absorption is questionable. If you truly want bioavailable C, it's liposomal you want. 

Also, Lyme is a spirochete. 

The pic's did arouse my curiosity as these fillament type maladies. Ebola appears to be one of them. Check out links on morgellans. CA posted a very informational link this weekend on Cliff Carnicom's research on just such fillaments (courtesy nano-tech) via chemtrails. Highly recommended.

have done a lot of research and experimentation.  theses are all lab created pathogens, no doubt about it.  liposomal is good, but it does something different that what is needed for this treatment.  for this, you must use ascorbic acid.

Willy - I put up something similar about morgellons, nanotech and chem trails. The reception was a red mist of down arrows.

I mentioned the Bay Area as a hot spot and mentioned the 1960s biowarfare experiment where they launched a strain of influenza into the East Bay on prevailing winds from a submarine. Just to demonstrate that the PTB in the past has poisoned the public via ommission or comission. Other examples, St. Georges, Utah and NBomb tests, Bikini Atoll with a fleet full of guinea pigs in range 'to watch'. Supposed to be 7.5megaton blast. Oops, it was 15 instead. EPA says Lower Manhattan, no health issues from 9/11. Lets remember the Three Thousand as well.

I have a cure. I am working on production and distribution. As soon as some minor bugs ( no pun intended!) are ironed out, my friends here a ZH will be informed of how to get this miracle, life saving drug....er... Pill.

It is guaranteed to work, and comes with a 21 day, money back guarantee .

Worrisome. So is the Southern Border where today a news link from Drudge said people of all countries have crossed in 2014, including West Africans.

How did said poverty stricken West Africans get into Mexico in the first place? ;-) Think before accepting next time :-)

Ebola scenario that accounts for bringing ebola cases to USA:

[1] Earlier ebola data  strongly suggested poor airborne transmission and contagion only when case begins to show symptoms.

Later data and military lab work in USA, USSR, Israel, UK show airborne transmission can be more easily accomplished with simple mutation and also that the virus is transmissible/contageous before case show symptoms.

Recent ebola cases are from mutant strains and are more easily airborne transmissible than the earlier case studies.And likely transmissible by other paths unknown.

[2] The President has been informed that transmission to USA is likely, not remote. Also, there are now more virulent strains.

Study of remedies and mitigating agents is severely handicapped ai African locations by culture/funds/ facilities/ security,  personnel and mostly by lack of proper case histories and knowledge/control of each victim. Also, transmission by insect bite is extremely difficult to isolate for study in Africa because insects, etc abound and are uncontrollable.

The best hope is to return to USA known cases of known [can be vetted] American citizens to an optimum study facility. Only certifiable backgrounds of such cases give most promise for success of research and experimental results.

[[4] The Emory U. Medical facility  [class 4?] is deliberately near the CDC in Atlanta and is reccommended for this purpose.

Any delay is most dangerous because ebola will spread to here whether we now return these cases for study , or not.

Thus the decision to bring selected cases to Atlanta.

Hurrah - probably the lone voice of reason on the Hedge

tonight and today in a sea of obfuscation, vitriol, and gross stupidity.

The very thought of a disease that kills in this horrid manner seems to have brought out the very worst of fear-mongering idiotcy matched only by the endless conspiracy rants of an engineered organism -  the rankest of personal stupidity - you fu$king fools.

The thread viri are one of the oldest organisms on earth, evolved very little from the deadly form they took several billion years ogo.  The organism attacks cells preferentially, but any meat (muscle) or skin cells will do for a host, and that is what primates and pigs are in common - a great source of meat.  On a cellular level, a single cell becomes a first host as the thread virus can enter a cell easily - it is so incredibly small; only seven proteins surrounding a core of RNA - just enough to split some chromosomes and essentially reprogram the cell's assembly instructions to replicate the virus as the only task.  In doing so, it destroys the cell as the viri become so packed they appear as crystal structures, and then the cell walls break open and a cloud of new virus copies search out the bloodstream for their preferred host cells - White Blood Cells.  No wonder the attack seems so quick and deadly - body defences are the first target, like an incredibly quick AIDS onset.  The next targets are the liver (yummy monkey cells are used in cultures), spleen, brain, any connective tissue, and testicles.  Pregnant women face a terrible course of the disease as the fetus aborts spontaneously after liquifying.

Why anyone would be ignorant enough to claim conspiracy in the face of this black swan strains the concept of inteliigent man.  The only thing truly infinite in the Universe is stupidity - Albert Einstein.
