India, Spain Testing Suspected Ebola Patients; Liberian Quarantine Center Raided

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While the Ebola outbreak in west Africa has long since left the "under control" stage, things are about to go from worse to inconceivable for the poverty stricken African nations, after Liberian officials said they Ebola could soon spread through the capital's largest slum after residents raided a quarantine center for suspected patients and took items including blood-stained sheets and mattresses.

According to AP, the violence in the West Point slum occurred late Saturday and was led by residents angry that patients were brought from other parts of the capital to the holding center. It was not immediately clear how many patients had been at the center.  West Point residents went on a "looting spree," stealing items from the clinic that were likely infected, said a senior police official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the press. The residents took mattresses, sheets and blankets that had bloodstains, which could spread the infection.

It goes without saying that if and when Ebola strikes the heart of one of the poorest ghettos in Africa, then there is no model that can predict just how far and wide the disease could spread.

And speaking of spreading, what many have feared may have come to pass after Spain announced it was investigating a suspected case of Ebola after a Nigerian man presented symptoms of the virus at a hospital in Alicante several days after flying in from the West African country.

The Telegraph reports:

The man, who has not been named but is said to be in his 30s, was admitted into San Joan hospital in Alicante on Saturday evening where he was being treated in an isolation unit.

 

Hospital sources confirmed he was suffering a fever of 38.3 degrees Celsius (100.9F) as well as "other symptoms associated with Ebola - including physical discomfort, vomiting and bleeding".

 

The patient told doctors that he had arrived in Spain from Nigeria "a few days ago".

 

Hospital authorities said they had "activated protocol" to deal with the infectious disease while they awaited test results.

But even that is nothing compared to what may transpire if what the Times of India reported moments ago, turns out to be accurate: three persons from Ebola-affected Nigeria, who arrived here Saturday morning, have been admitted to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital for screening and treatment if required. The three Nigerians, aged 79, 37 and 4 years had fever and their tests were being done at the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Delhi, an official release said here.

In addition to this, a 32-year-old Indian from Durg in Chhattisgarh who returned from Nigeria has been admitted to a hospital in Bhilai. His samples are also being tested at NCDC, the release said. WHO has said air travel, even from Ebola-affected countries, is low-risk for transmission of the disease. WHO has reported a total of 2,127 cases and 1,145 deaths due to Ebola from affected countries.

India is the second most populous country in the world with a population of over 1.2 billion.

There seem to be a large number of reports of people flying out of Nigeria, arriving in a western country with first world medical facilities and suddenly showing symptoms of Ebola. At the same time the Nigerian Govt appears to be saying "No problems, here."

So either western countries are, out of an abundance of caution,  engaged in some form of profiling, or Ebola is widespread in Nigeria and the state simply refuses to acknolwedge this fact.

key data point is the oil industry which is declaring froce majure and shutting down so all the expatriate personnel can depart. What do they know that we don't?

As a former worker on offshore oil rigs, I can 100% guaranfuckintee you that the married/family guys will in no way whatsoever jepordize their spouses and kids through potential exposure to Ebola from themselves.

The carefree, adventurous single guys will be sitting on barstools somewhere checking out maps to see where to seek work next. No way in hell will western Africa attract expats.

Economically speaking - and certainly from a humanitarian view - that part of the world - for now - is big time fucked.

Major Companies pull staff out as Ebola bites economy

— Heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar Inc., based in Peoria, Illinois, has "evacuated, less than 10 people" from Liberia, company spokeswoman Barbara Cox said by email. In a statement, Caterpillar said: "The health and safety of our people isour top priority.... We will continue to monitor the situation closely."

British Airways has announced that its suspending flights to and from Liberia and Sierra Leone through Aug. 31 "due to the deteriorating public health situation in both countries."

Tawana Resources, an Australian iron-ore company, said it had suspended "all non-essential field activities within Liberia" and sent all non-essential African workers, expatriates and contractors home.

— London-based mining company African Minerals have begun imposing health checks and travel restrictions on employees in the region.

Canadian Overseas Petroleum, based in Calgary, has stopped drilling in Liberia. And some of its expatriate employees have left the country.

ExxonMobil said in a statement that its offices remain open and that "we're taking precautions to ensure the health and safety of our employees." The company has offices in Liberia, Nigeria and several other African nations.

Chevron, which has an office here and is in the process of exploring for oil off Liberia's coast, said it's "closely monitoring the outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa." But the company wouldn't say whether it was withdrawing any employees or taking any other steps as a result of the outbreak.

Great post sushi! I posted over a week ago, that those West Africans with the money to buy plane tickets would begin to depart on tourist visa for Northern European nations with national health care, this is a rational move to save their own lives. But it will bring infection with it, and also, the sick who fly in will be given full treatment at taxpayer expense, and when they recover, they will be given asylum and a passport. Benefits for flying to Europe for an African who can afford it are obvious, so obvious I expect all flights to be fucking packed full to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, the USA, New Zealans and Australia. All these nations will now receive fully loaded planes from West Africa. Perhaps even extra flights will be added to meet the new demand.

I predict that all these governments on the receiving end will do nothing to stop anyone from entering. The local do gooders will demand open borders and open hospitals to any and all who can fly in. This story is in opening days.

I recall the post well and it was obviously prescient at the time (nice job).  I've been thinking about selection pressures, and I have a minor prediction.  The virus will mutate in the (first-world) countries with partially successful containment.  The current virus form has "learned" to spread through bleeding and other secretions, and this is encouraged by body-handling during funeral rites.  The virus will change strategy in the first world as required; it will become less deadly (as Miffed has predicted) due to simple selection bias.  It either won't spread as quickly, or it won't kill as easily (as has already been pointed out, it could eventually become no worse than the flu).  The next logical step after that would be airborne capability to regain the fast spread.  Bottom line: humans control the evolution of ebola with an unintentional carrot & stick.

Of course, in a doomer scenario (virus overcomes health services pretty much everywhere), there may not be any reason for it to change ....

Either way, I would advise against travel EVER to affected 3rd-world countries until one has either survived 1st-world Ebola, or been vaccinated.

Not sure why your comment was down-voted. Here in the U.S., during hurricanes, the people are warned that if they do not evacuate, not to bother calling for emergency services, because they will not be put at risk to save people who chose to stay. This is standard practice. Why then are people against the idea of not putting health workers at risk to attend to people reckless and stupid enough to steal infected sheets and mattresses?

My wife was listening to a BBC news broadcast recently on Ebola, and they made the interesting observation that Ebola appears to like dead bodies to profligate iself even more than live ones.  Thus the careless (by Western standards) treatment of dead bodies there as far as not being careful in their containment and removal will probably do more to spread the virus there than anything else.

Additionally, even doctors and medical staff there are more likely to get infected due to not following sanitary guidelines.  It seems they don't always use the latext gloves or masks, due to it being hot and simply being really busy and frantic in their work.

Basically, Africa is screwed, but the Western countries might not be as affected.  We'll see.

It's not that it likes dead bodies. It's that they contain so much virus.

In the late stages of the disease, there is so much virus in infected tissues that it forms crystals. There are extremely high virus titres in body fluids like blood. (Like the blood spread all over the sheets and mattresses that were stolen.)

I can't help but wonder what imperial powers are thinking as they eye African natural resources.  

Ah, never waste a crisis!  Imagine all the foreign aid in exchange for oil and other mined resources.  I'm sure the U.S., after using the crisis as an opportunity to test experimental treatments on African patients, will be eager to help with the recovery and rebuilding of African economies (i.e. extraction of resources with a humanitarian MSM spin).

The problem is, all the potential unintended consequences: ebola distrupting resource supply chain in the near term, the potential for ebola to get a little too close to home and take root in major 1st world cities like NYC/London/Brussels, etc.

No way is the average health worker in the United States going to report for work with the infection rate as it is for doctors.  (Should we even expect them to?  Would you show up?)  Who is going to dispose of bodies and medical waste?  

Most first-world countries are already facing doctor shortages as it is, and the flood of baby boomers are expected to overwhelm health systems.  That is without ebola or any major pandemic.  There is just no way health systems are set up to control the spread of ebola in modern cities.  Forget having any real spread of the disease -- it doesn't even have to come to that -- it will be enough for false alarms and any suspected cases to fill capacity.  All it takes are a few confirmed cases and the hospitals will fill with false alarms  -- anyone with seasonal flu will panic and head to the emergency room).

You're over thinking things. 1000 to 10,000 dead African's means nothing in nations where the population is doubling every generation. During the civil wars of the 70's and the 80's a thousand dead Africans was the end result of a bad afternoon in some places. There is no way the African leadership are going to suddenly start making concessions to  Western Governments because thousands of people who make a dollar a day have died of something, not when there is tons of other shit killing Africans.  

As for the Boomers......An  Ebola outbreak amongst the elderly would be a fucking god send from a budgetery point of view and a huge loss to the medical industry. The CDC probably has a plan for any major epidemic that his the U.S. Looking at how they go about dealing with riots it probably involves tanks and shit loads of guys with guns.

The CDC has upgraded its caution to say that it is unsafe to remain in a room for long or approach within 3 feet of a patient unless you are wearing full protective gear.

The Nigerian caregivers who dealt with Dr. Sawyer (the western 'patient zero') in Nigeria were well aware of all the caregiver deaths that had already occurred when they saw Dr. Sawyer, and they still got infected.

Others have posted a link to a BBC story from a few years back where researchers using animals in cages found that virus can travel from cage to cage in droplets of sneezed fluid, if the droplet is large enough. It was a proven fact that caged animals became infected without any physicl contact with infected animals or their cages. Now that story should still be in BBC files. I read the whole thing and it scared the shit out of me.

When I was a graduate student working on RNA tumor viruses in chicken, I observe first hand the phenomena you described. The virus simply flies with dust and infected others in another cage. The fact that doctors wearing full protective gear still got infected tells me that the virus was airborne. The only way the doctors can protect themselves is to carry an oxygen bottle and wear a space suit while working on these patients. Hospital rooms harboring these patients should have negative airpressure so the air is sucked out through a vent and the virus gets burn before the air is released.

"If they say otherwise, international travel comes to a screeching halt."

IF halting international travel to and from epidemic epicenters halts a pandemic I think it would be prudent to halt international travel.

People that can afford airfare can even more easily afford phone or email or skype communication.

A person's right to travel doesn't include the right to do so if they carry dangerous materials or WMD, and highly infectious/contagious high death-rate biological contaminants certainly meet the generally accepted definitions of WMD.

The more this speads the more inept and corrupt our corporations and govenments are revealed to be.

What nation does not have as a core interest and responsibility the preclusion of a preventable epidemic?

What business does not have as a core interest and responsibility to it's employees and customes the preclusion of contamination with potentially lethat contaminants?

The airlines that continue to transport these passengers would likely be bankrupted in the courts for simple negligence just as easily as GM for knowingly continuing to sell defective and dangerous products if corruption did not pervade the legal system...

&, by the way; wasn't the govenment footing of the TSA security costs and shielding of the now oh so profitable US airlines purportedly undertaken for the benefit of precluding the transportation of dangerous persons and materials?

"...international air travel come to a screeching halt?"

Surely You Are Joking Dr. Richard Feynam. Not a chance. The captains of the airlines are exactly the scumbags telling WHO, CDC, Obozo and the rest how THEY want this deal played down. You don't think they are calling in their Election Donation markers? They want this all swept under their jet tyres.

You see, you are projecting your own logical sanity on an industry poised to hit the rocks. No way would airlines survive the catastrophic loss of flights and income. Boeing and Airbus included. Much better to throw non-affected countries under the bus.

How long does an aircraft stay infected AFTER a sneeze feast of passengers? Airline crews that turn these planes around in under 4-6 hours will be the canary in the coal mine. The only way international travel halts is that if sane ones refuse to book or board their flights, preferring the comforts of their home. If anyone needs further proof...cue the the airplane scene from WW Z with Brad Pitt. Almost too comical...lucky he had a hand grenade to save his bacon, causing a rapid emptying of the passenger cabin of zombies and zombettes. A few of the gals looked like former gfs!

I happened to surf on into a brief segment of on interview, Charlie Rose maybe, on PBS.  It was with a lady that wrote a book about the last outbreak and seems to know quite a bit about ebola.  She was asked what it would take, in her opinion, to keep this outbreak from becoming a world pandemic (my terms, I'm not quite sure how the question was posed).  From what she said, it's not going to happen.  There is no way they will control this outreak at this time.  Shit is going to get heavy unless extreme measures are taken to control this thing.  I've about had my fill of doomsdsay stuff, and near doomsday stuff, but what she had to say raised the hair on the back of my neck.  No way Jose would I want to be living in the city right about now.  I'd been thinning out my food stash in a prep for moving but I think I might just start laying in some more supplies.  Not that that would protect me but I'm not so sure I'll be hankerin' to run into town in the not so distant future.

In that video, you can see temperatures being taken a few different ways: infrared, which can be used from a small distance; digital surface, which requires skin contact - similar to an otic or ear thermometer and the old axillary method - or sticking a thermometer under the armpit.

The thing is that of these methods, the last two transfer sweat from one patient to the next and since Ebola is secreted in sweat, so is the infection.

Also, here's a good resource for Ebola and other virology-related things: http://virologydownunder.blogspot.co.uk/

You may find the explanation about aerosol vs. airborne tranmission interesting.

Hey, Great beard, Thanks for the input. I just watched the 5 minutes of Laurie Garret's TV appearance as well as reading her linked article.

The most significant observation I had was that she was NOT trying to be alarmist (she corrected the hostess' fatality percentage downward), and yet was describing the probability of an apocalyptic pandemic.  

Maybe it truly is time to start to panic.

Hi Cooter,

I would like to refer to a conversation I had with Parrotile on this subject. I wanted a researcher and an ID Drs's view of my assessment. Frankly, any one credible is more than welcome to point out the holes in my theory. We discussed treatment options and vaccine development. My conclusion was simply to run. He basically concurred and gave me coordinates to Pitcairn Island. We do have access to a boat that could make it.

I am disturbed. I never thought a professional would completely agree and I was just getting too alarmist with this. Any questions on what we discussed you may email me at zhmiffed@gmail.com.

Hi Ma'm - me again. Off to work to deal with all the other infections that kill (but are less glamorous). Read an article on the in vivo use of amiodarone to inhibit binding, but from what I could gather, the human doses would be really high. Bearing in mind amiodarone can induce iodine sensitivity, cause thyroid problems, and (at high doses) is associated with pulmonary fibrosis (and the doses were HIGH), it's a choice of ebola or shot lungs.

Maybe more later?? It is certainly getting  interesting.

I am assuming these therapies must be done early in infection. Possibly before symptoms even appear?

20 years ago we had an outbreak of strep A Necrotizing fasciitis. 12 patients within 3 months. 4 patients died ( all had cuts in the leg interestingly enough, one 22 yr old had borrowed her boyfriends razor who had strep throat and shaved her legs, she lasted 3 days) all their blood cultures came up between 2-4 hrs! I was amazed at the MICs. Most sensitive strep I had seen to anything. We had a hard time culturing them. They would only grow at the tertiary and greater streak line due to the antibiotic concentration inhibition.

Even with such sensitivity the toxicity was extreme. We contacted the cdc but they could find no commonality and the outbreak, thankfully, just stopped. Our ID Docs concluded antibiotics would have only been effective if given soon after innoculation. Way before symptoms appeared. Of course, who would know to seek medical care after they had received a cut? I will say, none of us ever considered borrowing our significant others razor ever again.

I am hoping we are not in the eye of the storm. Lots of rumors flying and my contacts have gone silent. Gag orders? I am worried and keeping my eyes open.

Be safe and thinking of you

However, your comment about "contacts have gone silent" triggered uber red alarms in my head.

Few understand the secondary affects.

 

There are 100 Nuke Reactors with 5000 qualified people. When Ebola kills half of them those Nuke Plants are toast.

 

There will be a total failure of the Electrical Grid. With that there will be fuel shortages because the elctricity is required to run the pumps.

 

With Fuel Shortages the Crops cannot be moved into the cities. People will starve if not die from Ebola.

 

They will die of thirst from lack of Water as it takes electricity to run the pumps.

 

Ebola does not care if it is a "useless eater" or it is a World Leader. It has no respect for Socioeconomic Status, education, training or intellect.

 

Wiping out 50% of the people randomly will probably result in wiping out of 95% to 99% of the people.

 

With the secondary affects it can even be an ELE.

 

There will be Tens of Millions, if not Hundreds of Millions dead by Christmas.

 

Oh...By the way...I ran the new numbers. The percentage rate of infection, per day, is also growing as an Exponential.

 

Isn't it funny that the Second Derivative of an Exponential Function is also an Exponential Function?

 

I mean...That is only to be expected if you understand the Math.

If we can get enough interest maybe Las Vegas Casinos may open a line.

 

Other than that I was thinking that we all get together for an "End of the World Extravaganza".

 

Shit. Let's hold in in Lakeside, CA USA.

 

San Diego, CA is rather nice in the Fall.

 

We may not know the exact day...But it is ending...rapidly.

Too intense for you?

 

If I reported that you had one month to live just what would you do?

 

How will you spend those last Thirty Days?

 

What if I told you that you had Twelve Months? What changes will you make, then?

 

Lagos, Nigeria is toast. It is a city of TWENTY MILLION.

 

Hyperbole?

 

That is 2 "Tens of Millions".

 

THERE IS NO CONTAINMENT.

There are several strains. One has a 70% mortality rate, one a 50% mortality rate. Like HIV, it is a rapidly mutating RNA virus.

Being that it came out of Africa, maybe it has the same limits as the sickle cell?

The virus will kill half.  The implications for the globalized food and financial system will kill the other 40%.
