Officials Warn: Airborne Black Death Epidemic Could ‘Explode’

plague

The bubonic plague outbreak that is taking Madagascar to its knees will more than likely last another six months. But the worst news is that the epidemic could explode anytime unleashing the sickness on the globe.

At least 128 people have been killed and more than 1,300 infected by the deadlier pneumonic strain of the medieval disease. But the oncoming rainy season could see the number of those infected explode exponentially. The rainy season poses a threat to the containment of the plague because outbreaks of this magnitude often seem to be seasonal.

The Foreign Office recently warned that the deadly outbreak is entering its most dangerous phase. Its website said that “outbreaks of plague tend to be seasonal and occur mainly during the rainy season.” The African island’s wet season officially began today and will last until the end of April, meaning the downward trend the plague had seen over the past few days, will likely turn upward again.

Because the disease can be spread easily through a cough or sneeze, experts are fearful. It would take just one infected traveler who made it to Africa’s mainland or even nearby British honeymoon paradises like Mauritius, the Maldives or the Seychelles to spread the disease globally. The Seychelles is currently putting anyone traveling from Madagascar into quarantine on arrival as a precaution.

The outbreak has been fueled by performing the ancient practice of Famadihana. Famadihana is the “dancing with the dead” ritual which sees locals dig up deceased relatives and dance with them before they are reburied.  Just contact with a corpse who’s death was because they contracted the plague could sicken a person.

The country’s health chief Willy Randriamarotia said: “If a person dies of pneumonic plague and is then interred in a tomb that is subsequently opened for a Famadihana, the bacteria can still be transmitted and contaminate whoever handles the body.” The tradition has been banned since the outbreak began, but it is feared ceremonies have taken place regardless as local continue to balk that their rituals have contributed to the outbreak.

This latest warning that the rainy season could worsen the outbreak comes on the heels of the reports that British aid workers said the epidemic will get worse before it gets better. Olivier Le Guillou of Action Against Hunger said: “The epidemic is ahead of us, we have not yet reached the peak.”

As many as 50 aid workers are believed to have been among the 1,200 people infected with the more dangerous airborne pneumonic strain of the disease.

  1. And people from the infected countries will be invited in to our country under order from the federal judges in the 9th district.

    • Kevin2 says:

      In order to reduce the number of infected in Madagascar its wise to move them out. The UN can then site “statistics” that their plan is working and to prove it the numbers of infected are locally diminishing.

      In the meantime we can get more international diversity.

      • KY Mom says:

        Even worse than the Black Death – Madagascar PLAGUE more deadly than 14th century killer

        “The Madagascar Plague is actually THREE plagues.
        The first is bubonic – the type which ravaged Europe and the Mediterranean in the thirteen hundreds, leaving up to 60 percent dead.

        The second is pneumonic – a super strain of the yersinia pestis bacterium which ALWAYS results in death.

        The third, more rare strain, is septecaemic – a life-threatening infection of the blood.”

        “The Plague has already turned up in Seychelles and South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros, the Seychelles, Mauritius and Reunion have all been placed on high alert by World Health Organisation (WHO) monitors.

        This year’s outbreak involves mostly pneumonic plague, a more dangerous form of the disease than the much more common bubonic plague.”

    Mac Slavo;

    I enjoy your (assuming your the administrator and/or owner) website BUT, I about puke every time I have to scroll down past an ‘ad’ or “Promoted Content” of either Obama and/or the Clintons, it seems a never ending reminder of disgust.

    Can’t you move that stuff to the bottom on the page? Ya cant be getting paid that much to have that blasted on your site, can you?

    Thank You.

    maybe a MORE important infection is coming….in the MARKETS…robert prechter(elliot wave theorist) was just on fox business channel talking to neal cavuto about how we are in what LOOKS to be the biggest bubbles in HISTORY. he compares the current time to 1966 and 1929. if you can find it, take a look, it’s about 10 or 15 minutes, and he makes a LOT of sense about how complacent we are. not just here, but the whole world….i been saying the market’s going down for over 10 years now, and i been wrong MOST of the time, but like prechter just said, when THIS one happens, it will be EPIC……he, and I, believe that time is near….will it happen next week? next month?….i don’t know, but it WILL happen, and if you are in the markets(ANY markets), you will have your head handed to you, most likely. the FED has painted U.S. into a corner, and no easy way out.

  4. Wisconsin says:

    The risks of catching this from the environmental factors are one issue. This pneumatic strain that transfers by cough or sneeze is a second factor that makes it exponentially worse. The first infected person may have been dancing with the dead, but their potential presence coughing in a plane full of people means the world may get to see this sickness up close and personal. I remember the “Ebola” outbreak of 2014. There was speculation that it was laboratory created to target people based on genetic markers. It lacked some of the features of a traditional Ebola outbreak. Many of us became very aware of how things like this can spread and bring the system down. Between the Hepatitis A outbreak from California, and pneumonic plague, things could get pretty interesting. This is in addition to the rest of the troubling events taking place across the world.

    • lilnorsk says:

      Hi Wisconsin, same here, wishing it were warmer and not so rainy here in west Central! Yes I have been following this plague for the last couple of weeks, many sites I visit (alternative media) are reporting on it, and yes they have said it is airborne. Guess I better get more tape and plastic, some suits, many more masks, and more usual preps, I told the Husband today, time to get real could be very soon, and we are not leaving this house for any thing. I do believe the powers that be do “Practice runs” to see how well an epidemic would do under different weather conditions, ex; bird flu/avian flu, and most recently they were reporting on a virus that your dog could catch. We have seen that now the last few years, testing sites I say.

      • Wisconsin says:

        It is good to have sealing materials on hand. I am getting the impression that there may be a whole host of potential infectious outbreaks on the way. Folks should consider the multiple ways things can play out. I just read about a new strain of Dengue fever. Interesting times

  5. TEST says:

    Interesting that ~128 people have been killed, but “only” 1,300 infected – i.e., death rate of ~10%, and this in a 3rd world country. A bit of relatively good news, I suppose….

    A VERY good medical preparedness site is by Dr. Joe Alton, MD, at https://www.doomandbloom.net FYI

  6. Anticommie says:

    Pandemics are there for a reason. If you don’t control the quality of you breeding nature will do it for you.

  7. RickE. says:

    This is just one of the reasons why I live off of the grid, 28 miles from the nearest town!

    The ‘black death’ is another reason why open borders can be a disaster. No borders=no country.
    Control immigration! It WILL help keep diseases like these under much better control.

    • marie says:

      Oh yes, for sure! Open borders are the stupidest thing ever especially with people flying in airplanes all the time. If someone is “sick” they will just think it’s the regular flu until it’s too late and they already spread it everywhere.I always keep filter masks in my car near my emergency kit cuz like they say with the lottery…”ya never know.”

  8. Anonymous says:

    Speaking of death, people should be thanking Vladimir Putin and the Russian military for
    destroying the CIA-created ISIS. 90% of Syria has now been reclaimed by The Syrian army.
    They did it quickly and efficiently. By taking the initiative and wiping out US sponsored
    terrorism, Putin actually helped us avoid WW3. The Deep State is now nursing itself after
    this huge kick in the nuts. They will now try to start some shit with Iran. Perhaps some kind
    of annexation of Lebanon to provide a “buffer zone” for Israel. They still want a foothold in
    Libya, even though Putin has told them to stay the fuck out of there. The fucking neocons
    will never accept any kind of peace whatsoever. They work hand in hand with the bankster
    and military industrial complex profiteers. Lots of truth bombs coming out. They have to
    start something big to distract the non-thinking FOX and CNN watchers.

  9. It’s pneumonic (airborne) not bubonic (spread from rats’ flees) plague.

  10. Come-On-People says:

    There is an active plague and nothing is sealed or closed down? WTF is going on here?

  11. Stuart says:

    I for one hope it does explode all over Africa. Mother nature’s regulating mechanism at work.

  12. Illini Warrior says:

    What’s really worrisome is that groups of illegals from that section of Africa have been caught coming over from Mexico – can you just imagine an infected being locked into a semi trailer with 150 other illegals and turning them into Bubonic Bobs also spreading the disease … they hit the US ghettos and barrios working the service jobs and riding public transportation …. one carrier could spread to 200 others without a problem …

  13. KY Mom says:

    Reportedly, the incubation period for the pneumonic plague (the most serious form) is UP TO SIX DAYS.

    Airplane flights OUT of Madagascar still continue.

    With airplanes, boats and cars, how far can one travel in SIX DAYS?

  14. Brian says:

    Sneeze or have a hacking cough and clear out any elevator or subway car you are on. If you ride in a carpool and seem sick, expect to be left on the shoulder of a road on the way to work. Get ready!

    • Neal Jensen says:

      and people think nothing of it to work in food service and go to work hacking and sneezing in your food and on the buffets, nevermind sick customers doing it….i rarely eat out, and always tailor my order to get freshly cooked food to reduce those risks.

  15. watching and waiting says:

    Uh, wasn’t a case of this bubonic plague reported found in rodents in either Arizona or New Mexico earlier this year?

    yes.

    Plague Is Found in New Mexico. Again.

    yep, reported here.

    • Genius says:

      If I had the plague I would go to the nearest ghetto/low income housing, spit on my hands and shake hands with everyone I met. Ya not very nice but hey, they robbed me I will return the favor. The naggers would probably jack me up for being white but before they killed me I would do everything possible to spread it to them too…

      There is plague here in the Southwest. It came over over a century ago with Chinese railroad workers and found a home in the prairie dog population.

    Four Thieves Vinegar. The more ancient the recipe the better. A few ingredients in those old recipes will kill any bacteria or virus that even modern medicine can’t seem to get rid of.

    • marie says:

      I have heard of that recipe. I had lost it a long while back. Does anyone have it now? I suppose we can do a search.

      • Nothingtosay says:

        I have it and have had it made and waiting. I have extra of the herbs and cider for more if needed.
        Thing is, what about the eyes? Are people going to be going around all dressed up with gloves on and things over your eyes? All you need is for it to get in the eyes.
        The recipe is good also for wiping down counters and things.
        I figure spray some on a mask? Or use it in one of those handwipe things. Carry it around with you wherever you go.
        People here have NO manners and do not cover their mouth. Ever see a close up view of a sneeze? It goes everywhere.
        If one disease or plague doesn’t get you, the other one might.
        Good thing a person doesn’t have to suffer long. Couple of days you are dead.
        Lovely right?

  18. tahini says:

    Raw garlic is a great addition to antibiotics or antivirals it is effective at killing virus, bacteria, fungus and cancer cells. When taken must be chopped to activate allicin and the other active ingredients. Bacteris can adapt to antibiotics, but not garlic due to its complexity. I live in the Saudi Arabia part of the year and the population is exploding here. Also most people here do not cover their mouth/nose when they sneeze or cough, I assume the habit is common in Africa and the rest of the region. If this spreads I will not be surprised.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      Good points and observations! Everything is about population and demographics. The truth is that the populations of Africa and the Middle East are out of control and this is the reason for the terrorism, migration/refugees and rising crime. People are fighting over resources and we have the most ignorant and racially, ethnically lowest quality people rising rapidly in numbers. Saudi Arabia is a mess and trying to do the impossible: to turn themselves into a 21st century country with a rapidly growing ignorant, radical Muslim population.

      In Western cities, you can pick up any newspaper on any given day and see the endless pictures of blacks and Muslims who have been stabbed to death the day before. That is gang warfare between these groups over the spoils of welfare and of the criminal economy (drugs, underage prostitutes, mostly white girls, Uber jobs etc.).

      The Chinese have a plan and that is to basically clear the land in Africa of the squatters that are there and free up the resources for growth in the East. Negotiating with black Africans, or naively trying to ‘lift’ them out of ignorance and poverty is a fool’s errand. Better to just remove the obstacle to negotiations in the first place. America did this in many places and so did the British when they built their empire. The Chinese are the new empire. Thus comes along ‘Ebola’ and the ‘plague’. Hygiene practices in these cultures is negligable. From wiping your ass with your hand to having unprotected sex with anything that moves, to using dirty water for food and drink and washing, to sneezing, coughing, nose picking and flicking, spiting, all of it is perfect for disease vectors.

    I thought it was Ebola that was going to kill everyone? This is more of the same thing. worthless Doom Porn

    • Anonymous says:

      2014. The year people were told to go Christmas shopping at their own risk. Ebola was supposed to be lurking everywhere. On shopping carts, drinking fountains and hand rails. The great ebola hoax that never was.

  20. Joe New says:

    Islamists will use this disease, and others, to murder the maximum number of innocent people for their deity, SATAN (aka “Allah”).

  21. Yohan Smythe III says:

    Old Guy – I don’t think so this time. Here is some new info released late last night.

    HEADLINE=
    “Even worse than the Black Death – Madagascar PLAGUE more deadly than 14th century killer”

    “The Madagascar Plague is actually THREE plagues.

    The second is pneumonic – a super strain of the yersinia pestis bacterium which ALWAYS results in death.

    This year’s outbreak involves mostly pneumonic plague, a more dangerous form of the disease than the much more common bubonic plague.

    About 30 to 60 percent of people who contract bubonic plague die. Untreated pneumonic plague is always deadly, typically within 24 hours of disease onset.”

    • Yohan Smythe III says:

      Have they stopped ALL travel out of the country yet?

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        We can’t stop flights because the world economy hinges on the ability of the Madagascans to export dead relatives, birds of paradise, vanilla beans and candy bars.

        A flight ban – while OBVIOUSLY – makes sense, that is why they won’t do it.

        Remember the Ebola scam? The only Ebola that even got out of Africa was when Obama brought it over to the West. How much money was scammed through Ebola? And how much was re-diverted over to Hillary Clinton’s election campaign war chest? Just like the Haiti disaster relief funds, I would bet a large portion either went to Hillary or went to fund terrorists.

  22. Yohan Smythe III says:

    New for Nov 3
    “Deadly airborne plague in Madagascar is now at ‘crisis’ point and the ‘worst outbreak in 50 years’ as cases rocket by almost 40% in just 5 DAYS and could hit a further 20,000 in weeks”

  23. Old Guy says:

    Ill be brave and make a prediction. This plague will not be any kind of big deal here in the USA. Those third world folks are the most disease riddled folks on the planet. They don’t have good sanitation habits. Let them die Good Riddance.
