Ebola Spreading: Infections Up 800% In Last Week, Officials Race To Track Down 400 Possible Contacts

Authored by Mac Slavco via SHTFplan.com,

Last week three suspected Ebola infections were detected in a remote region of the Congo. Since then, World Health Organization officials have been scrambling to contain the virus.

Their efforts appear to have failed.

The contagion continues to spread, and though it’s nowhere near the 11,000 people who were infected during the outbreak in 2014, the infection rate has spiked over 800% in just the last seven days, with at least nine new cases reported in the last 24 hours:

The number of suspected cases of Ebola has risen to 29 from nine in less than a week in an isolated part of Democratic Republic of Congo, where three people have died from the disease since April 22, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.

 

 

The risk from the outbreak is “high at the national level,” the W.H.O. said, because the disease was so severe and was spreading in a remote area in northeastern Congo with “suboptimal surveillance” and limited access to health care.

 

“Risk at the regional level is moderate due to the proximity of international borders and the recent influx of refugees from Central African Republic,” the organization said, but it nonetheless described the global risk as low because the area is so remote. (NY Times)

The 2014 outbreak likewise started in a remote region of Africa, but containment efforts were ineffective and the virus eventually spread to the United States and Europe.

***

According to W.H.O., about 400 people have come into contact with the 29 people infected and officials are attempting to track them down for monitoring.

Protective gear has been dispatched to health workers and a mobile lab is being constructed and then deployed to the area. Immediate repairs to air strips and telecommunications are also being carried out. The first six months of the operation are expected to cost $10 million…

 

 

With the help of the UN, the first search teams, led by the DRC’s Ministry of Health, flew into Likati yesterday. Their immediate priority is to follow the 400 plus contacts of the suspected Ebola cases. (U.N. News Centre)

As we learned in 2014, all it takes is one infected individual to make it through an airport checkpoint.

With international travel via airports, trains and cars available throughout the region, a single infected individual on an airplane could infect scores of others, who in turn could infect scores more.

The following Ebola model from Yaneer Bar-Yam, who has successfully simulated and predicted such events as the rise of the Arab Spring, shows how an Ebola contagion may look.

The above model is based on Ebola’s current infection rates and doesn’t take into account its possible evolution as it spreads from human-to-human.

According to scientists, the 2014 strain began hyper-evolving, to the point that had it not been contained and continued to spread through human contact, it could have gone airborne, making it as easy to catch as a common cold.

In response to this unprecedented threat, US government officials began preparing for mass casualties, reportedly going so far as to develop plans for Community Care Centers where infected individuals, or those suspected of infections, would be detained indefinitely.

As the Ebola contagion spread across the globe, the panicked populace rushed to stockpile emergency supplies like freeze dried foods, bio-protective body suits and gas masks.

The concern, of course, was that a virus with a 90% fatality rate after infection would make its way to local American communities. As Tess Pennington notes in her Pandemic Preparedness Guide, once it’s within 50 miles of where you live, it’s time to worry and take immediate steps to isolate your family from the threat, because most people won’t realize how serious of a situation they are in:

Looking back at the Black Plague, those living in high populated areas were hit hardest by this pandemic.  The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30–60 percent of Europe’s population. Given our vast array of transportation systems, modern society causes infectious disease to spread far more rapidly compared to any other time in recorded history; and because pandemics are fast moving, vaccinations would be useless. Further, in regards to the world’s transportation system, the morbidity rate in a future pandemic could result in millions seeking medical care at the same time thus overwhelming hospitals and emergency departments.

 

 

When an outbreak occurs, many will remain in a state of denial about any approaching epidemics. Simply put, most people believe themselves to be invincible to negative situations and do not like the idea change of any kind. They will remain in this state until they realize they are unable to deny it to themselves any longer. Being prepared before the mass come out of their daze will ensure that you are better prepared before the hoards run to the store to stock up.

Perhaps containment procedures being implemented in the Congo by W.H.O. will be more effective this time around than they were in 2014.

But what if they’re not? What if the virus mutates and goes airborne?

Plan accordingly.

Can we just nuke that entire continent and be done with it?  I am so sick and tired of these diseases coming out of that shithole because either someone:

1) Fucked a monkey; or 

2) Ate a raw monkey. 

Wipe it off the map and be done with it.

Monsanto, or Monsatan as many call them, has partnered with the Department of Defense to use a proxy third party company to develop a vaccine against Ebola. The seed money began at $1.5 million. The value of the deal could grow to an estimated $86 million dollars. The company’s name is Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TKMR) (TKM.TO), a leading developer of RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics. “TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office

No flights out of Africa. Only boats.  Problem solved.  Cape Town doesn't count as Africa, nor does Cairo.  Sorry bout that, rest of Africa.

BTW, the post-Black Death era was a great one for peasants, they were actually much more valuable, valued, and well off.  If they survived.

Also, it should be remembered that deaths from the Black Death were not only those from disease, but includes those from war, famine, and natural causes. 

Lastly, the Liberia 'ebola' outbreak was allegedly due to... Formaldehyde poisoning of the only water well in that particular slum.  Check out the symptoms of formaldehyde poisoning and get back to me.  But no way there are people that would try to create a fake Ebola scare, right?

Im hoping Ebola 2 is better than the original. I mean, it was ok, suspenseful and all, but lacked the big finale.Zika was alright,  at least there was those same 7 kids with panheads to gawk at, and the 'buzz' about this summers release sounds promising, whereas Swine Flu:Porkys Revenge and Bird Flu!! (Parts 1-6) were pretty much all dialogue and no action...

The original did give us a nice little window into the level of control the Deep State has over the media.

It went from saturation coverage to zero, literally overnight. And it included sites like this. First time I'd ever seen such a thing. If that wasn't enough of a wake u call for the masses, I don't know what it'll take.

Tyler, you should be writing about that. What was it made you comply? Must have been a hell of a threat behind it.

Since subject of many articles over the last several days is doom and gloom, I thought verses below might be of some comfort. So it is written.

Matthew 24:6-14 NIV

6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains. 9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

i remember bullard completely stopped the outbreak in oct, 2014 when he said QE4 was a possibility.  on that day (as Ebola was spreading to all corners of the earth), all reports of Ebola quickly disappeared.

My word. I thought this was over! I had a helluva time watching this last time....seemed like the end was near. Still have the "Ebola Count" link that doesn't work anymore. Maybe to be resurrected.

Nature...or whatever..does have a way.

If it gets as bad as before..and Trump bans flights..and HE WILL, what fucking judge will overrule his directive? We should start a pool.
How many Africans are still making their way to Europe? This should put a new slant on things.

It is just nature running its course. Africans are r-selected vermin and when your strategy is to out breed disease war and famine, this is what happens. Or rather than cause and effect, this is what they are adapted to withstand. There is never going to be the 8 Billion Africans predicted by the UN, because there will always be a higher rate of disease, war, and famine in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Your grasp of biology is weak. At any time, there are many dozens of viruses and bacteria and fungi evolving adjacent to human populations. In the natrue of evolution, some of those come to infect humans.  The majority of those are in agricultural areas because those are where disease of both humans and animals come together. We get far more of our viruses from birds and pigs than from rats, there are far more birds and pigs in close contact with people.

Bush meat and Africans are far down the list in terms of numbers of dangerous viruses, and African viruses, etc. are no more intrinsically dangerous than any other continent's.

I only fly United. They're offering deep discounts if you're willing to be dragged off the plane feet first. And, breaking teeth on the way out is an added bonus.

You can make some money as well. Why waste a crises? Lakewood Industries (LAKE) deals in protective clothing. The last time Ebola popped up, so did this stock with better than a double is a few days. It receded at the same pace, so stay on top of it and don't be greedy.

The words from my friend when this first crossed the wires were, "Quarantine. What quarantine?  These clowns can't even rig a backwater election..."

There are only 12 million people in Kinshasa if anyone with ebola goes looking for the nearest real hospital, so sort of like another Lagos scenario.

And they are just flying containment teams in now... (10 days later)

Fortunately most Africans are smarter than most Muricans, because they have the common sense (or lack of resources) to avoid healthcare facilities like the plague when they are sick.

EBOLA is IN America, the CDC won't tell you of course, and neither will the (((Mainstream Media)))

DIEversity is our greatest strength!

And THE DONALD helping greatly:
Trump Admin comes in at just short of 900 refugees in past week...
206 Refugees from DR Congo came in this past week
Trump said he was lowering the ceiling to 50,000 refugees for 2017, but so far we are on track to take in 60,000 3rd world scum in 2017.

Obama began processing Central Americans to the US as ‘refugees’ directly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala last year. The practice continues under Trump. We have admitted (directly over a thousand (1,106 as of today) mostly fake ‘refugees’ from El Salvador to the US in FY2016 and 2017.

“These are Not the Immigrants You’re Looking for”

Well, we might still be importing thousands upon thousands of ISIS refugees, and we might still be funding “Sanctuary Cities” to help Mexican rapists, murderers and drug dealers remain in the country forever and not be punished for committing felonies and so on – but at least we caught this Australian guy.
