OUTBREAK ALERT: Ebola Containment Stalled By Violence

Violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo has made it increasingly difficult for health officials who are attempting to contain an outbreak of Ebola. The DRC’s Ministry of Health reported that rebels in the Rwenzori neighborhood of Beni killed at least 15 people and kidnapped another dozen over the weekend.

The violence is all but halting efforts to contain the Ebola virus, making its spread much more likely, according to a report by Axios. So far, the DRC has reported at least 202 confirmed cases of Ebola since this outbreak started August 1 of this year. This is the 10th major incidence of violence near the outbreak epicenter in Beni, according to Peter Salama, a World Health Organization (WHO) emergencies chief, in a post made public on the social media platform Twitter.

Each time public health officials are pulled away from their tasks of following up with contacts of infected people for monitoring and vaccination means the virus has a chance to spread to new people or regions. “It will be very hard to stop the outbreak if this violence continues,” said Salama.

A regional WHO official told The Associated Press that it was difficult to say how long work would be affected, as reported by the Washington Post.  A separate deadly attack last month in Beni forced the suspension of Ebola-containment efforts for days, complicating health officials attempts to track the suspected contacts of those confirmed infected people. Since then, many of the new confirmed Ebola cases have been reported in Beni, and the rate of new cases overall has more than doubled.

This recent violent attack came after two medical agents with the Congolese military were shot.  Mai Mai rebels surged from the forest and opened fire on the unarmed agents with the army’s rapid intervention medical unit outside Butembo city, the health ministry said. Health efforts in recent weeks had started to show results, and this new attack “will bring us back,” Dr. Michel Yao, WHO’s incident manager for Ebola in North Kivu province, told the Associated PressWork in Beni was suspended on Sunday and “tomorrow, we don’t know yet,” Yao said, noting that the burials of victims can be tense. “We understand. We are sympathetic. It’s not easy to lose relatives. At the same time, it could affect the (outbreak) response.”

Of the confirmed Ebola cases, of which there are 202 in this outbreak, there have been 118 deaths.

“Our agents will continue to go into the field each day to fulfill the mission entrusted to them,” Health Minister Oly Ilunga said according to the Washington Post. “They are true heroes, and we will continue to take all necessary measures so that they can do their job safely.”

  1. It’s on it’s way here. The government has no plan to stop it. Same as under Obama. The government isn’t set up to protect us. The government is your enemy.

  2. Gang banger monkees rule those hellhole turd-world countries….just as they rule the inner cities here. There is an answer. winkwink

  3. If that wasn’t enough, 2 earthquakes off the coast of Vancouver B.C. 6.8 and 6.5. At the standard shallow depth f 10 kilometers. Multiple aftershocks.

  4. THE ONLY WAY TO BE SURE says:

    Ebola Containment Stalled By Violence

    Fuel Air Bomb _ Outbreak 1995

    • Beaumont says:

      “The New River (Spanish: Río Nuevo) flows north from near Cerro Prieto, through the city of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, into the United States through the city of Calexico, California, towards the Salton Sea.”

      Causing measurable, Mexican contagion to ooze into the US.

      Also, by way of migrants in the public schools and sewage at the beaches. There was a literal scare, in my immediate area.

      There is footage of a Dallas area hospital, hosing Ebola barf into an open sewer drain.

      Crops and public plantings are irrigated by non-potable water, in a purple line, and, according to the public domain, Ebola antigens are grown in tobacco.

  5. That's what I'm talking About says:

    I,remember reading a few weeks back that ISIS was planning to use viruses as a weapon against the west. Just maybe this is part of a bigger plan and it only would take one infected person to spread virus on a global scale.

  6. Killed 15 people and kidnapped a couple dozen more.

    Africans are still making slaves out of other Africans.

    • Content with life says:

      Problem with the kidnapped “victims”… what if those victims are infected, and then dropped off in the middle of the migrant caravan???

      Hell comes to America, and the federal judges won’t let us stop it.

  7. Genius says:

    A man walked into this deli.
    On the wall was a sign that read: Italian brains 14.99 per lb. German brains 16.99 per lb. Nagger brains 999.00 per lb.
    The man inquired as to why nagger brains were so much more expensive.
    The clerk replied: Do you know how many naggers you have to kill to get a pound of brains?

  8. Stuart says:

    1/2 kills the other half.
    Ebola kills the winners.
    Expressed mathematically:
    A – B = C
    C = 0

    Looks like a win/win to me.
    Ain’t math fun.

    Never a better time to See America First.

  9. Frank Thoughts says:

    Couldn’t. Care. Less.

    Why are we helping garbage like this? I have a rule: I don’t help or give money to anyone who won’t help themselves. Black people rarely help themselves by building civilisations. And they will never learn if we keep doing things for them. Wakandia my butt!

  10. Beaumont says:

    Wikipedia — Variolation
    “The procedure was most commonly carried out by inserting/rubbing powdered smallpox scabs or fluid from pustules into superficial scratches made in the skin.”

    I have read stale, out of print books, and prettymuch all of the anti-vaxxer talking points have been known for 200 yrs, since it was first considered risque and later forced on men in uniform.

    In Biology 101, I distinctly remember asking the teacher about inter-species resistance. Rabies, cowpox, plague, Lyme disease, AIDS? (Now, bushmeat.)

    If you cannot determine whether a virus meets the definition of a living thing, how is attenuation measured?

    In general, virions are assumed to be shed, for weeks to months, in the sweat and bodily fluids. In the commercials for eczema and Crohn’s (autoimmune disease) pharms, they explicitly ask whether a member of your family has been vaccinated. Why?
