    The Second Wave: Senior Medical Official Issues Ebola Warning: “TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL”

    ebola-outbreak

    Earlier this year it was reported that the deadly Ebola virus had broken through all containment barriers making its way to seven west African countries. In an effort to stop widespread panic gripping the affected nations government officials told the Reuters news service that they would no longer release infection rates and death tolls to the public. In recent months, with no updates being provided to the public, many outside of Africa assumed that the virus spread had subsided.

    But according to the latest figures the Ebola contagion is now deadlier than ever. A senior official with the organization Doctors Without Borders spoke with the Associated Press this week and warned that a second wave of the epidemic has taken hold, thus far claiming the lives of over 300 people with the infection confirmed in at least 550 people.

    The Ebola outbreak ravaging West Africa is “totally out of control,” according to a senior official for Doctors Without Borders, who says the medical group is stretched to the limit in its capacity to respond.

    “The reality is clear that the epidemic is now in a second wave,” Janssens said. “And, for me, it is totally out of control.”

    The outbreak, which began in Guinea either late last year or early this year, had appeared to slow before picking up pace again in recent weeks, including spreading to the Liberian capital for the first time.

    “This is the highest outbreak on record and has the highest number of deaths, so this is unprecedented so far,” said Armand Sprecher, a public health specialist with Doctors Without Borders.

    The multiple locations of the current outbreak and its movement across borders make it one of the “most challenging Ebola outbreaks ever,” Fadela Chaib, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, said earlier in the week.

    The outbreak shows no sign of abating and that governments and international organizations were “far from winning this battle,” Unni Krishnan, head of disaster preparedness and response for Plan International, said Friday.

    Europe and the United States, while having issued warnings about the potential for Ebola to make its way out of Africa, have as of yet taken no immediate steps to contain the virus. Flights in and out of the region are still available and often pass right through major airport hubs like London.

    The official fatality rate of those who contract the virus is over 50% and because containment efforts have failed to stop the spread at its source it is become increasingly likely that the virus could mutate as it touches a larger segment of the population. The virus is not airborne, so it is currently only passed via direct human-to-human contact. Researchers say that the possibility of the virus going airborne is small, but because of the rapid mutation capability of Ebola it remains a distinct possibility and the more exposure it has to humans the more advanced it can become.

    There is no known cure for the virus, thus the only method of surviving such an outbreak unscathed is prevention through isolation, a strategy that Prepper’s Blueprint author Tess Pennington outlines in her online Pandemic Preparedness guide:

    When an outbreak occurs, those living in cities, and those living in close proximity of others will be more at risk. Statistics from previous pandemics indicate that 30–60 percent of the population will contract an illness.

    When the pandemic begins, many will remain in a state of denial about any approaching epidemics and not want to think of the long lasting repercussions of such a disaster. 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.

    Here are a few ideas to consider on how to better prepare for family for this type of emergency:

      1. Taking proper illness precautions – avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes during any pandemic.
      2. Create a sick room for the home.
      3. Keep your immune systems up by getting lots of sleep, having a good diet and taking vitamins and antioxidants to protect your health.
      4. Stay inside and avoid contact with others.

    If Ebola were to mutate and expand further it could be a serious humanitarian crisis. As Tess notes, most people will remain in denial, assuming that government emergency responders will be able to get a handle on it.

    But, as evidenced by the events in west Africa over the last six months, sometimes even the best laid plans are not enough. By the time most people realize that the situation is out of control it will already be too late.

      The second an Ebola case is actually confirmed in the United States there’s going to be a run on the stores.

      First on the list are N95 and N100 rated masks currently available at your local hardware store in bulk packages of 20 units for less than $15.

      Remember the Fukushima alert that DHS issued a few weeks after it happened? They told people to make sure they had potassium iodide pills just in case. Within 24 hours the price of a bottle of pills jumped from $15 to over $200 on ebay.

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see basic N95 masks selling at $25 to $50 a piece if a pandemic scare hit America.

              If illegals were executed when discovered in America the desire of same to sneak into America would be curtailed.
              Our Southern borders should be land mined, and no third world immigration should ever be permitted. As our government will not do anything about these potential carriers of exotic third world disease entering our country, one can expect a day when these diseases appear in the US. If I didnt know better Id have to assume the government wants a pandemic of some exotic third world disease to occur in America.

                If not a pandemic, they would certainly like for us to be weakened, then the Illegal’s infections can carry us off. That’s why you won’t see the “unwashed masses” sitting close to any of the politicians or their spawn.

          I can attest to the benefits of oil of oregano. I had swollen lymph nodes a couple weeks ago. My neck and face were swollen and I had a fever of 102. I took OoO for 2 days and it was gone.
          I cut my finger working last week and it got infected. Tried triple antibiotic cream and hydrogen peroxide and it did nothing. Then I put OoO directly in the cut and it cleared right up.

          I have a different brand right now, but I found this to be the cheapest on ebay right now. I order some for my pastor and for his daughter who’s a missionary in Brazil. It already had the eye dropper bottle for filling caps:

          I got some of these for making pills….great price, and the V-caps work better than the gel caps. 3-4 drops.

          These kids, God bless them, and tens of thousands of them,come from three of the biggest incubation cesspools for exotic diseases, on the PLANET.You know the countries ,these people can be carrying anything. None of these people have EVER seen a shot in their entire lives.
          Oblabla now wants you to believe they are now REFUGEES not ILLEGALS…and they are legally allowed now as refugees to STAY. As we speak these people are being flown across the country,dispersed into the population.. Hope the oblablacare website is working soon.
          PS. Did anyone hear Obingo tell the Medal of Honor marine yesterday, ” I’m going to surge”
          The military has activated the deploying centers, hold on to your boots…hug your wife..hug your kids…

            Super bugs come from Mexico because the population pops penicillin like aspirin. 800 mg are available over the counter, no prescription needed.

            This has been the case for DECADES, that’s one reason that Mexico is a cesspool. :-(

          Gods Creation: Clove oil extract has 10,000,000 Orac units. Mix 2 drops of clove oil extract, 6 drops of oregano oil extract, 6 drops of grapefruit seed extract oil in half cup of water. Drink this every 2-3 hours and NOTHING will get you. Kills virus. Warning, man up! it tastes aweful, like fire water. Proven with myself, family and friends–we don’t get sick with flu etc.

        • What trumps all of the natural remedies is edible clay. Removes (all) toxins out of the body!!

          Definitely something to add to your medicine chest!!

          We were made from the earth, which means we need to consume things from the earth!!!

          Take the time and research these clays, and if it suits your fancy start consuming them (NOW)!

        The only thing I see there that really matters is, the virus is not air borne. Human to human is something that is very rare to catch. A virus that stays alive in the air is spread like a plague. Ebola is much like rabies, it doesn’t live well in oxygen, sunlight, and outside the host for much time at all. Thankfully for right now. As long as it doesn’t go into the air, it is just very frightening to behold. If it does go air borne, then strict isolation is really the ONLY answer for anyone that doesn’t want to risk having their body melt away from catchiong this hideous pathogen.

            I call bullshit!

            Ebola has been described now for 30 years, and in that time, it has NEVER EVER approached “epidemic” levels!

            On the other hand, US doctors kill 225,000 patients a year.

            That is “epidemic!”

                Wake up folks. A Central Bank makes this whole nightmare possible.

                Sound money (a gold standard) keeps government (criminals) in check.

                If you approach prepping with fear — one fear you might have is not staying on target — the main target — the real problem.

                If you approach prepping with intrigue — you want to hear about everything in the world, and then implement or press delete — obviously applying good discernment.

                I appreciate the article — would have liked it to be less speculative.

                After reading the article — I added masks to my store list.

          The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration – Facts, Figures and Statistics
          -July 2010

          “Legal immigrants are required to have medical screening to ensure that they do not bring any contagious diseases into the United States. Illegal aliens are not screened and many are carrying horrific third world diseases that do not belong in the USA.

          Many of these diseases are highly contagious and will infect citizens that come in contact with an infected illegal alien. This has already happened in restaurants, schools, and police forces.

          Malaria was eradicated from the USA in the 1940s but recently there were outbreaks in southern California, New Jersey, New York City, and Houston. Additionally, Malaria tainted blood has been discovered in the blood supply.

          Dengue was first recognized in the 1950s, affects most Asian countries and has become a leading cause of death among children in the infected areas. Heretofore unknown in the US, Dengue outbreaks have now occurred in the United States.

          Leprosy, a scourge of Biblical days, is caused by a bacillus agent and is now known as Hansen’s Disease. In the 40 years prior to 2002, there were only 900 total cases of leprosy in the US. In the following three years there have been 9,000 cases and most were illegal aliens…

          Hepatitis A-E is a viral infection that primarily attacks the liver. In 2004, more than 650 people contacted Hepatitis A at a single Chi-Chi’s Mexican restaurant in Pennsylvania. Four latter died. Hepatitis B is one of the major diseases of mankind and is a serious global public health problem. It is estimated that 2 BILLION people are infected and about one million persons die each year.

          The new vaccine is only 95% effective in preventing an infection and will not cure a person who already has Hepatitis B, which results in a lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and early death.

          An estimated 1.3 million people in the US are currently infected. No vaccine is currently available to prevent Hepatitis C-E and treatment for chronic Hepatitis C costs about $1,500 per person.

          Tuberculosis (TB) kills approximately 2 million people each year. It is estimated that between 2002 and 2020, approximately 1,000,000,000 people will be newly infected, over 150 million people will get sick, and 36 million will die.

          TB is a highly contagious disease. Like the common cold, it spreads through the air. When infectious people cough, sneeze, talk or spit, they propel TB germs, known as bacilli, into the air. Each person with active TB will infect on average between 10 and 15 people every year.

          Mexico has 10 times the rate of prevalence and many African countries along with Afghanistan, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Indonesia have rates that are 100 – 150 times higher.

          Making matters worse, a few years ago a Multi-Drug-Resistant (MDR) strain of TB has emerged that is resistant to all standard anti-TB drugs. Treating a single case of MDR TB costs over $250,000 and as much as $1,200,000 per person, and even with treatment about half of the patients with MDR-TB prematurely die.

          HIV The number of illegal Mexican and Central American immigrants with HIV or AIDS is unknown, mostly because researchers rarely ask about immigration status. However, it is known that the rate of HIV infection among Latino women in California is about twice the rate of white women.”

          Then there is Schistosomiasis, Guinea Worm Infection, Whooping cough, Cysticercosis, Morgellon’s, and a host of others.

            And to think Himmler committed suicide after his run at the Gestapo. What a chump! Imagine the money he could have made “consulting” with Gypsies, Russians, Jews, Poles, and dissidents on protecting themselves from the secret police…

              Spot on. I work as a microbiologist in a hospital lab. Currently there are outbreaks of Pertussis (whooping cough), measles (Rubeola). All preventable. We are losing our herd immunity because of illegal immigration and lack of vaccination.

              You know that as many as 30,000,000 of us, who were vaccinated for polio in the 1950s, got a shot contaminated with simian virus that can later cause cancer. That’s 30% of those receiving polio shots. I don’t like those odds. On top of that, they knew about it soon afterwards but never told us that we might have the simian virus.

              Also, current flu shots that are given from bulk containers contain toxic amounts of mercury. They tell us mercury is bad for us, yet urge us to get flu shots containing mercury.

              Years ago, I went to the county health department to get a measles vaccination. They refused me, saying that I must have had the measles and didn’t realize it. I told them that my grandfather almost died from the measles when he was in his 80s, but it did no good.

              I wish my parents could have refused the polio vaccination. They did keep me from the smallpox vaccination until I was in 2nd grade and the school found out. The doctor signed off for me, and then later gave the vaccination. They say it’s no good now anyway.

              I’m not getting vaccinated for anything. I read the labels for all other shots before I get them.

                Yes, the polio vaccines were notorious for issues with safety; this was in large part to lack of medical knowledge, but was also due in part to the effort by teams of researchers to be the first to introduce a oral polio vaccine, or to vaccinate the largest numbers of individuals. I recommend a reading of “The River; A journey to the Source of HIV & AIDS” by Edward Hooper. Exhaustively researched and thoroughly sickening and highly compelling read about the medical disaster which may have resulted in the creation of HIV by recombining a simian version in kidney cultures used to grow oral polio vaccine which was tested on Africans in the Belgian Congo where the first cases of HIV/AIDS originated.

                That being said, there is a very large body of research showing that vaccines for childhood diseases are safe and effective, and the fact that almost all of us have had them yet are still here is the biggest proof of their safety and efficacy. There will always be a very small percent of individuals who suffer side effects including death from vaccinations and unfortunately that will always be the case. However, any parent of the Fifties who had seen firsthand someone they knew sentenced to life in an iron lung for the rest of their lives, or was stricken with terror every summer as the polio outbreaks began anew, would have praised the arrival of effective polio vaccines as a godsend. I do not blame them for what they did and am thankful mine chose to vaccinate me.

                The kidneys of monkeys were extracted and infected with polio to produce a vaccine serum. However, these monkeys were infected with deadly viruses–known as SV40, which later studies revealed is associated with causing brain cancer.

                SV40 was eventually determined to have made its home inside the bodies of millions of humans injected with the polio vaccine

                Dozens of monkey viruses were present in the earliest polio vaccines administered during the mass vaccination campaigns that took place back in the 1950s and 1960s.

          In the book I read about Ebola, it says at one point it DID become airborne when monkeys in two different cages contracted the disease and yet had no direct contact with each other. The book is called, “The Hot Zone”. But yeah, it DID become airborne in secret US labs…

          Still, when I looked up “Ebola” on wiki-leaks, it seems the disease has not become any worse than it has been for the last few decades- look it up yourself! They keep saying its spreading but seems no worse than has been, according to wiki-leaks.

            That book was excellent. Ebola Reston is the strain you speak of, named after the city in which the strain was discovered (Reston, Virginia).

            We got very lucky then. While the virus mutated for airborne transmission, it lost its lethality for humans. If we get a situation where it mutates to become airborne and doesn’t lose its lethality we are in deep trouble.

          Precisely this.

          The nightmare of nightmares is for Ebola to mutate into a form that can be easily transmitted in the air while maintaining its lethality.

          As it stands right now, it’s very hard to catch. The reason it’s so easily spread in its current form is because of the poor sanitation standards in Africa.

          What scares me is that the more people Ebola comes in contact with, the higher the chance for a deadly mutation.

          BI…If I had any sort of literary talent ( or the stick-to-it-nivess ?) to write a novel, I had recently thought of this thriller……

          An impoverished village in eastern Ghana is truck by the Ebola virus…Mfumu, a member of the Ghana World Cup Team, cannot help himself and visits his sick family before he heads with his national team to Brasil for the World Cup.

          Once in Brasil, Mfumu, begins to feel sick…walking the streets with thousands ( millions) of world cup fanatics from every corner of the globe, he occasionally coughs sputum on others, most often he coughs in his hands– and then touchs taxis, buses, restaurant and bathroom doors..

          Within 3 or 4 days some tourists begin to feel sick, and as their teams are eliminated from contention, they in turn fly back to their distant corners of Russia, Korea, England, the USA etc…….

          And then the story would go on from there…of course I’d need a main character….a doctor who recognizes what is going on early but nobody listens too….a love interest of some type…maybe even a sick child who pulls through…it could sell millions….

        Just an fyi..

        “As many as 75 scientists working in U.S. federal government laboratories in Atlanta may have been exposed to live anthrax bacteria and are being offered treatment to prevent infection from the deadly toxin, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday. The potential exposure occurred after researchers working in a high-level biosecurity laboratory at the agency’s Atlanta campus failed to follow proper procedures to inactivate the bacteria. They then transferred the samples, which may have contained live bacteria, to lower-security CDC labs not equipped to handle live anthrax. Dr Paul Meechan, director of the environmental health and safety compliance office at the CDC, said the agency discovered the potential exposure on the evening of Friday, June 13, and immediately began contacting individuals working in the labs who may have unknowingly handled live anthrax bacteria. “No employee has shown any symptoms of anthrax illness,” Meechan said. Meechan said the normal incubation period can take up to five to seven days, though there are documented cases of the illness occurring some 60 days after exposure. Meechan said as many as seven researchers may have come into direct contact with the live anthrax. But the agency is casting as wide a net as possible to make sure all employees at the agency who may have walked into any of the labs at risk are being offered treatment. Around 75 individuals are being offered a 60-day course of treatment with the antibiotic ciprofloxacin as well as an injection with an anthrax vaccine.

        Meechan said it is too early to determine whether the transfer was accidental or intentional. He said that all employees who were doing procedures to inactivate the bacteria were working in a biosecurity laboratory and were “tier one select agent approved,” meaning they had undergone a security reliability review and deemed to be “stable, trustworthy individuals.” Meechan said the CDC is conducting an internal investigation to discover how the exposure occurred and said disciplinary measures would be taken if warranted. “This should not have happened,” he said. For those exposed, he said, “We’re taking care of it. We will not let our people be at risk.” The CDC said in a statement is has reported the lab-safety incident to the Federal Select Agent Program, which oversees the use and transfer of biological agents and toxins that pose a severe threat to the public. CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said appropriate background checks were done on all employees handling the anthrax, but would not say whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate, deferring that question to the FBI. Anthrax is a potentially deadly infectious disease caused by exposure to the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. The bacteria most commonly affect hoofed animals such as goats, but people who come in contact with the spores can also become infected. Infection can occur through a cut in the skin, breathing in anthrax spores or eating tainted meat. Meechan said CDC workers in the lower-security labs were likely not wearing masks, which would have prevented inhalation of the spores. In inhalation anthrax, bacterial spores enter the lungs where they germinate before actually causing disease, a process that can take one to six days. Once they germinate, they release toxins that can cause internal bleeding, swelling and tissue death. Inhalation anthrax occurs in two stages. In the first stage, symptoms resemble a cold or the flu. In the second stage, anthrax causes fever, severe shortness of breath and shock. About 90 percent of people with second stage inhalation anthrax die, even after antibiotic treatment. ”

        If one infected person were to make it to Mexico City’s airport it could spread like wildfire.

        Say they made contact with someone that has plans to head to the U.S… They get the infection but don’t know about it because it could take up to 10 days for symptoms to show up. They jump into one of those ‘Coyote’ trucks with 30 other people… The infection passes to a few more… they get across the border and each of them is promptly put in a holding tank with 100 other people… then, the gov decides to split some of those folks up, bus them to various shelters around the country where they come into contact with hundreds more…

        Of course, that kind of stuff only happens in the movies…

          Turf battles over selling drugs (thanks War on Drugs!), drug useage, and legalized abortion are already killing far more blacks than the wet dream fantasies of the most rabid KKK Grand Wizard. I would venture that the main reason for the continued legality of abortion in the US by those in power has nothing to do with feminism and everything to do with the fact that more than half of black pregnancies end in the abortion clinic. A dirty little secret hiding behind a woman’s right to choose.

          I venture it is a toss-up as to whether the killing of young black men in drug turf wars, the locking up of vast numbers of them in the American Gulag Archipelago for many years, and the wholesale abortion of untold numbers of black pregnancies balances the animal virility of the black male. Even those who pay lip service to racial harmony, tolerance, and equality are secretly glad that there are not far more of them than there are.

    11. For those of you who still are gullible enough to believe in global warming, which is predicated on a false Malthusian premise, here is Dr. Eric R. Pianka, at University of Texas lecture to fellow scientists, students and professors in 2006, where he stated that 90% of the world’s population needed to be killed using a weaponized form of the Ebola virus. He stated that an airborne version of Ebola would be more effective than the HIV/AIDS virus has been because of the speed in which the victim dies. Pianka also spoke positively of the death the bird flu could bring, and spoke of the need to “Sterilize everyone on earth” at this lecture. (This is the same Mengele-like Pianka who has also stated “We’re no better than bacteria!” at one of his lectures.) Meanwhile, Simon Ross, head of Population Matters, has stated “population shrinkage is the cheapest and surest contribution to sustainability that we know of” (D Normile, The Upside of Downsizing, Science, July 29, 2012), with fellow misanthrope Rob Hengeveld, in his book How Our Consumption Challenges the Planet, proposes reducing world population to 1 billion.

      More Agenda 21 horsemanure. Hard to believe this stuff, but as the late psychologist M. Scott Peck once said “The truly evil people are never in jail.” And neither Joseph Mengele nor this Pianka nutcase fit that bill!

          It will happen whether it is by design or just plain running out of resources to exploit. It seems that the most profligate are simultaneously the most ignorant; science, petroleum, and modern medicine have allowed them to multiply far past the ability of the planet to support their numbers. If I were an elite contemplating what kind of future world would be left for my descendents, I would be seriously concerned with their ceaselessly expanding numbers. Barricading yourself behind walled communities and security guards doesn’t change the equation. What good would all that wealth be when the seas are dead and the skies are choked with the exhaust of unnumbered billions? When the only animals outside of industrialized farms are in zoos?

          Uncontrolled population growth is bringing this to pass, and efforts to make more efficient use of energy and resources only help at the margins and are outpaced by exponential growth in population. We will drown in our own excrement, and if I can see this then undoubtedly those with far more education and access to powerful computers with the ability to forecast the inevitable, have already done so and are making plans to do what needs to be done.

        • As a matter of fact, it matters immensely whether AGW is true or not. Trillions are spent for an issue which is DEMONSTRABLY false… viz., ZERO global warming since 1998, per the official Hadley, corroborated by the UK Met and now even the IPCC admits as much. AGW is pushed by the Agenda 21 cabal, which have no love lost for mankind; it is also anti-science. We are continually told there is a “consensus” – which is a blatant lie – but even if there was a consensus, since WHEN has science been decided by “consensus” mon ami? Since Galileo? Since Copernicus? Since Columbus? Since Hitler had published “100 Scientists Against Einstein” by his Nazi scientists? The whole AGW scam is a ruse to invoke Orwellian control over the population, and only those who refuse to look cannot see this. The Julian Simon/Paul Ehrlich Wager, which you are undoubtedly unaware of, addressed your premise above, Acid. Before you pontificate you need to learn more. Besides, population experts mostly agree the population will level off around 9 bn, then recede. No one is arguing for conspicuous consumption, and no one is saying rape the planet. But your solution of an EPA that has become fascist, an Agenda 21 cabal that will make the Soviets look like child’s play, etc., are uninformed and a recipe for horrible disaster. And as noted, global warming is an outright SCAM, which I will illustrate below.

          As a matter of fact, TRILLIONS of dollars are going to the AGW scam, along with MASSIVE government and Agenda 21 control. Your argument from absurdity (we can’t continue to “pollute endlessly and limitlessly” is precisely that of a sophist. NO ONE is arguing for infinite pollution; but what you, yourself, are arguing for, is CONTROL by totalitarian govt, Agenda 21 types and an Orwellian polity. You are also arguing AGAINST scientists, such as:

          “Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical.” – Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology and formerly of NASA who has authored more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent scientists of the last 100 years.”

          “Inevitably in climate science, when data conflicts with models, a small coterie of scientists can be counted upon to modify the data…That the data should always need correcting to agree with models is totally implausible and indicative of a certain corruption within the climate science community.” Dr. Richard Lindzen, MIT

          Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

          “The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists,” – Indian geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the Planet.

          “Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal, the founder of the Numerical Weather Forecast group, has more than 150 published articles.

          “The models and forecasts of the UN IPCC “are incorrect because they only are based on mathematical models and presented results at scenarios that do not include, for example, solar activity.” – Victor Manuel Velasco Herrera, a researcher at the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico

          “It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” – U.S Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA.

          “Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will.” – . Geoffrey G. Duffy, a professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of the University of Auckland, NZ.

      Actually what scares me the most is that the more people that become infected, the higher the chance for the virus to mutate into a form that can be passed easily via the air.

      A particular strain of Ebola, Ebola Reston, was actually discovered to have spread via the air between monkeys in a laboratory in 1990. The thing is, that the same mutation that allowed for airborne transmission also made it non-lethal to humans. It did, however, kill hundreds of Macaques in the laboratory.

      Ebola is without a doubt one of the scariest viruses on the planet, not to be underestimated or trifled with. Keeping a very close eye on this outbreak for any further developments.

      It’s horrible as it is, hundreds of people have been killed, but knowing how deadly it is and how easily it could mutate, is even more horrible to contemplate.

This means if you are wearing the mask and someone sneezes or coughs on you this mask *should* kill 99.99% of the listed pathogens. It won several awards and is designed for pandemic situations expressly. They have a face contour-fitting version as well. I really try to verify all of my information I post here- so if I am incorrect, my sincere apologies.

        I am grateful that Uncle Sam in his benevolent wisdom, vaccinated me against anthrax and smallpox. Unfortunately I am not allowed to get the rest of my family vaccinated against these threats. It is interesting that countries are researching strains of smallpox which would circumvent existing immunity. Smallpox was the first disease for which there was a vaccine created. In fact, the origin of “vaccine” is “vacca”, latin for cow, because it was observed that milkmaids never caught smallpox due to their exposure to cowpox, a milder form of the disease. Introduction of the fluid from the cowpox lesions into a cut in the skin of a healthy individual would cause the body to develop antibodies that would protect the individual from the more dangerous smallpox virus. In antiquity, the ground up scabs from smallpox sores were also snorted or scratched into the skin of healthy individuals, but this had a 1-2% mortality rate compared to the 30-50% mortality from the disease. Women would risk the small chance of death though to avoid the disfiguring scarring from smallpox sores.

        Should we be attacked with a modified strain of smallpox against which preexisting vaccination does not protect against, this might be an approach to ensure we do not die of this disease.

          If I’m not mistaken, Ebola has a 2 week incubation period? In a dense population that’s a lot of potentially infected people. If the virus can maintain a slight edge in its infection rate versus it’s terminal phase, it will amplify like wild fire exponentially unchecked.

          The virologists and medical researchers on the scene in Africa have declared the outbreak “out of control”. The World Health Organization, CDC, and U.N. must stop flights into that region, but they won’t. It’s only a matter of time before it escapes confinement.

              “The Plague of Justinian.” Actually there were several plagues that occurred at various points in the downfall of Rome, and they killed so many Romans that they had a hard time defending their borders and were increasingly forced to employ the barbarians as border guards against the other barbarians. Worked out real well for them!

              Scholars are still debating exactly what the nature of the plagues were; possibly Bubonic plague or some kind of hemorragic fever like Ebola. One thing is certain though, and the parallel is striking; the plagues were so deadly because Romans had relatively high population densities due to their mastery of infrastructure and basic sanitation, which allowed populations to grow to the point where plagues could survive to be passed feom person to person. Their infrastructure – road networks – ensured that the disease was able to quickly spread from town to town. After the fall of Rome, during the Dark Ages plagues did not take hold because the roads had fallen into disrepair and population had shrunk to the point that epidemics could not be sustained; a condition that remained until rising populations crowded Europe once more just prior to the Black Death.

      CBRN readiness is important, but so is knowing how to use it. Gas mask usage:

      -Have the right size mask for the size of your head, size medium will fit most people.

      -Inspect the mask for serviceability and for defects like discoloration, dry rot, frayed straps, leaks, missing or defective components, fatigue, etc.

      -Be able to put it on in 9 seconds or less.
      -Store mask upside down with bottom facing you, if in a drop leg carrier.

      -Affix straps over the front of the mask, with the filter and other accessories attached beforehand (in the field).

      -If you have to put it on, hold mask to face to put it on chin first.

      -Pull head harness over the head, tighten straps from top to middle to bottom.

      -Harness pad should be seated properly to the back of the head.

      -Exhale through the exhalation valve for 10 seconds.

      -Cover inhalation valve and inhale to do a negative pressure test, mask should collapse against the face and is airtight. Readjust seal or straps if there’s a leak.

      -Facial hair or thick beards not recommended due to possible leaks in the seal.

      -Do what you have to do and leave the contaminated area as soon as possible, do not change filters in a hazard area.

      -If changing filters, do so in a relatively clean or unaffected area. Take one last breath and hold the mask to the face to keep the seal. Having a combat buddy change it for you is advised or do it yourself if that’s not an option, then clear the mask again.

      “Ebola is passed through bodily fluids — blood, saliva, sweat — of people showing symptoms. That’s important: The disease can incubate in people for up to 21 days before they show symptoms, but the infected person cannot pass on the disease during that period.”

      EBOLA is somewhat difficult to catch

      A common misconception is that since N95 surgical masks may be used by health care workers or doctors in an operating room, that it must be okay for protection.

      In fact, the wearing of the surgical mask by the health care provider, doctor or surgeon is protecting the patient from the doctor’s own breath (sneeze, cough, germs, etc.).

      To truly protect one’s self from virus or other airborne chemical contamination, you need a respirator mask that is fitted to your face for an air-tight seal with appropriate filtering.
      N95s are not air-tight and therefore not blocking 100% of the air that you inhale, esp. for bearded folks.

        An appropriately fitted N95 will protect you. I posted on this at length a year or more ago.

        Here is a video. You can make the mask fit test hood yourself. The bitter spray they use is saccharin. If you have facial hair forget about it. You won’t seal.

        If you find it easy to breathe it doesn’t fit right. I can’t wear mine when my asthma is acting up.

      We are past the point of distractions. This and other anomalies could very well be trigger points. The elites have planned, plotted, and now they are executing their diabolical scheme. Time is short. With Godspeed, prep, and pray.

      Let’s keep perspective. While horrible, we are talking 550 infected, 330 dead where there are 100 million people. The virus requires direct exposure. Yes we take precautions, but this is not going to spread like a deadly airborn flu epidemic.

        I’d much rather be called foolish for making preparations for something that might not happen … than being dead because I failed to prepare … no one expected the Spanish Flu epidemic … but Fort Riley Kansas bears witness to its inception.

        True. Except viruses mutate. They incorporate bits and pieces of DNA as they replicate. Sorta like microscopic Borg. The more people it infects, the greater chance it will pick up a bit of DNA to allow it to infect through the air.
