Uganda Ebola Outbreak Spreads To Local Prison

Tyler Durden's picture





 

While world markets are transfixed by what central planners in various continents may do, but really just say, a tragedy in Africa continues to develop, as the recently reported Ebola outbreak in the infamous country of Uganda, which is not Spain, has now spread to a local prison, even as the number of infected cases has doubled in the last several days since we first reported on this most recent Outbreak which luckily has for now not spread outside of the country. CNN reports: "The hospital at the center of an Ebola outbreak in Uganda is now dealing with 30 suspected cases, including five from Kibaale prison, Dr. Dan Kyamanywa said Thursday. Three patients at Kagadi hospital have been confirmed as having the virus, said Kyamanywa, a district health officer. Doctors are now testing the suspected cases urgently so they can separate confirmed cases from those who do not have the disease, Doctors Without Borders said. Suspected cases are still trickling into the hospital, Kyamanywa said. At least 16 people have died in the current outbreak."

More:

"We do expect the number of suspected cases to increase," he said. "It's important to break transmission and reduce the number of contacts that suspected cases have."

 

There is a fear that the outbreak will spread to the capital, but it is unlikely, he said.

 

Many patients fled Kagadi hospital when Ebola was confirmed, he said, and the hospital is struggling to respond to all the call-outs to suspected cases.

 

"Right now there is no treatment for Ebola, so the most effective measure we can take is to contain the spread of the disease," said Olimpia de la Rosa, the Doctors Without Borders emergency coordinator for Uganda Ebola intervention.

 

"That is why we need to start working immediately. Other cases need to be rapidly identified because containment is what can stop it," said the expert from the aid group, which is also known as Medecins Sans Frontieres.

 

The Ugandan government has asked people in western Uganda to travel by public transport only if it is necessary.

Here one may wonder if, just as in the case of Fukushima, the media is not reporting the full severity of the situation:

Market day was canceled Wednesday after Uganda's president warned people not to gather in large groups.

Health officials urged the public to report any suspected cases, to avoid contact with anyone infected and to wear gloves and masks while disinfecting bedding and clothing of infected people. Officials also advised avoiding public gatherings in the affected district.

 

Teams in Uganda are taking an aggressive approach, including trying to track down anyone who came into contact with patients infected with the virus and health workers have been gearing up for better protection of health workers and an influx of cases.

 

The workers include people from Uganda's ministry of health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

And of course, the biggest concern is getting one of those infected but asymptomatic on board of a plane and headed for Europe of the US. The resulting panic would be quite unwelcome. Or welcome, depending on one administration's need to force a social clamp down.

And to especially avoid kissing or engaging in promiscuous acts with the dead or those burrying the dead.

 

 Named after the Ebola River, in the Congo, it is also known as Viral Hemorrhagic Fever (VHF). (Not to be confused with Very High Frequency Trading or VHFT)

 First known large outbreak in Zaire in 1976. 318 cases, 280 died, quickly. Later that same year, another outbreak in Sudan resulted in 284 reported cases and 156 deaths.

The outbreaks are often self-contained because they kill their hosts so quickly that they rapidly run out of people to infect.

The disease is so dangerous that the CDC responds to most outbreaks.

Once a patient is infected with Ebola, the incubation period is 4 to 16 days. The onset of disease is sudden, with fever, chills, headache, anorexia, and muscle pain. Read what follows after onset here. Death occurs within 7 to 16 days.

The cure has limitations. ie. timing - seems if you know you have been infected for sure you can survive with treatment before "1 day" has passed.

"Dr. Kobinger’s next challenge is to push that 24-hour window to 72 hours. The tricky thing about treating Ebola is that it has a 10-day incubation stage: By the time a person starts to show symptoms, it’s too late."

"But 72 hours after infection, doctors can detect the virus in the blood – a trigger for treatment. A cure that was effective after that point would be much more useful."

Also, it appears to be known to be effective on monkeys.  They'd still need human trials if the opportunity arose... ie now and if they have enough to send out into the field.

Also, god knows how to store the cure, is it only viable in lab conditions and breaks down in hot/humid weather?

If a couple prisoners got it, likely the whole lot of prisoners have it.....depending on what the hygienic conditions of Ugandan prisons are.

We should immediately grant amnesty to all Ugandans and encourage them to seek refuge here in the U.S, infected or otherwise.

Prince cuntish Philip, the Queen's skeletal plaything.

In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation (1988)

"The world today has 6.8 billion people... that's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent." 

 

"A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal."

Audubon magazine, interview with Ted Turner, 1996

 

"This is a moment to seize. The kaleidoscope has been shaken, the pieces are in flux, soon they will settle again. Before they do, let us re-order this world around us."

I've seen this movie.  I get to wander around in an empty city; use whatever fast cars and other things that are available to me...and yeah, things may smell a bit for awhile, what with all the dead bodies and such, but eventually I'll meet a hot chick that also survived, and we can hook up.  Soon enough, we'll come across an amazingly diverse set of other survivors and re-start society with all of the current problems we face now; solving nothing.

Can't wait.

A Virus is not a "'Mutual Assured [MAD] Destruction' - Weapon" created by man? No! It is rather nature itself bathing in `tranquil desperation' to right the landlord's wrong-- for all of mankind's stewards having had desecrated their mother with indescribable savagery. Having cast 'mother nature' as, but a modern day apostasy hand maiden prematurely written out of history by its iconoclast 'NWO' masters,...

Ebola could be our next Bubonic? Black Plague in Africa is so sad!

16 deaths and 30 infected is an "outbreak" or as some news outlets calling an "epidemic",  think there needs be few zeros behind those numbers before they can claim either of those.  Over 6 billion people on planet and they call 16 dead either of those?!

I like to panic as much as the next person, but it seems to me this Ebola virus kills its host too fast to be a good candidate for causing a worldwide pandemic.

"Here one may wonder if, just as in the case of Fukushima, the media is not reporting the full severity of the situation"

Well when the Toronto Star covered the conviction of 52-year old Ontario civil servant Johnson Aziga, nation of origin, UGANDA, for causing the death of many White Canadian women through AIDS and not telling them, they in first printing mentioned that the reason the death toll was so high and so fast was that it was a UGANDAN strain of HIV. In the next edtion of that story the reference to the potent Ugandan strain was deleted--politically incorrect you see. Better the white sheep don't know about it, could cause less than a celebratory viewpoint of immigration from the 3rd world.

Travel into the US from Asia, Africa, South America, is constant and with no checks. Heck Mitt and Obama want them to STAY...

EBOLA; Mexican Flu, renamed H5N1 avian influenza strain, can't be giving a negative impression of anything mexican you understand...then UNTREATABLE TB cases have been NUMEROUS in US last 10 years with travellers from Asia, Latin America bringing that joyous addition to our shores.

1st US case of Marburg fever confirmed in Colo.
The Associated Press - Feb 7, 2009
WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (AP) — The first U.S. case of Marburg hemorrhagic fever has been confirmed in Colorado, and authorities say the patient — who contracted the rare illness while traveling in Uganda — has since recovered.

The disease, caused by a virus indigenous to Africa, spreads through contact with infected animals or the bodily fluids of infected humans.
