CDC Covered Up “Catastrophic Failures”: At Level-4 Biosafety Labs Containing Ebola and Smallpox

How safe are the government’s BSL-4 labs containing some of the world’s most deadly pathogens?

Turns out, not anywhere near as safe as you’d hope.

In fact, there is more reason than ever to think that things could play out like the plot of an unsettling pandemic movie – where, say, a virus escapes from a government lab and spreads rapidly throughout the population.

And unfortunately for all of us, the dense cities and sprawling suburbs of modern development are all-too-vulnerable to the rapid, viral spread of a contagion, as numerous flawed laboratories seem ready to fail and unleash something unspeakable.

An exposé in USA Today shows the frightening potential for looming disaster:

Encased in spacesuit-like gear needed to protect them from the world’s deadliest viruses, four scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stepped into their lab’s decontamination chamber where a shower of chemicals was supposed to kill anything on them and make it safe for them to exit into an adjacent changing room.

But the shower wouldn’t start, and warning lights appeared as a cascading series of safety systems began to fail inside one of the world’s most advanced biosafety level 4 labs. That’s the highest level of containment and security, reserved for work with deadly Ebola and smallpox viruses and other pathogens that lack vaccines or reliable treatments.

[…]

The shower’s door back into the infectious disease lab “forcefully” burst open again and again – and they couldn’t even hold it shut. Meanwhile, air pressure alarms were blinking and monitors displayed the lab as “red,” according to records of the February 2009 incident recently obtained by USA TODAY under a Freedom of Information Act.

[…] “The incident summary reads like a screenplay for a disaster movie,” said Richard Ebright, a Rutgers University biosafety expert who reviewed the report at USA TODAY’s request and called it a major incident.

“Overall, the incident shows that failures — even cascading, compounding, catastrophic failures of BSL-4 biocontainment labs occur,” said Ebright, who has testified before Congress about CDC safety issues. “And the attempted cover-up within the CDC makes it clear that the CDC cannot be relied upon to police its own, much less other institutions.”

The CDC made excuses, claimed that no breach of safety had occurred, and essentially tried to sweep it under the rug and cover up the incident as ‘no big deal.’

There has been an attempt at oversight in Congress in order to reign in dangerous practices and establish a realistic understanding of the risk involved in this kind of advanced bioweapons research.

But the truth is, that there is no stopping certain things from breaching the lab and spreading.

A veritable Noah’s ark of the world’s deadly viruses, bacteriological/biological agents and other pathogens that are part of ongoing research in top lab facilities are supposed to be safe because strict protocols are maintained to keep everything contained.

These fail safes are misleading though. This report proves that mishaps happen, and even the best protocol can’t prevent every accident from happening, let alone the potential for a covert individual to smuggle out any of these materials deliberately.

Some of these biological agents are already nearly unstoppable in terms of cures, vaccines or other containment strategies, and all of them have the potential to mutate as they spread throughout the population.

And the potential is much worse than public discussion has acknowledged:

An Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air. The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice.

Recall that the 2014 outbreak of ebola in Western Africa led to a patient in the United States and who potentially exposed an entire hospital and all its staff and doctors.

One patient with ebola overwhelmed the entire medical system and put the entire country on edge as fear over how far it would spread gripped Americans and the world.

While the possibility of a mass pandemic again seems distant, the potential remains very real.

This USA Today story is a reminder of how vulnerable our modern system really is.

These alarming stories about the mismanagement at the CDC should give pause to every American.

Who the hell do they think they are, and why are they so delicately toying with our lives and safety? One wonders if some of them wouldn’t like to see a virus wipe out a large portion of the population, anyway.

Could it happen by accident, or on purpose in the fashion of a spectacular movie plot?

Here’s what you should do if you find yourself even remotely near these scenario in the real world.

No matter what the media or government officials try to tell you about how safe and secure everything is, now is the time to avoid society like the plague and use your prepping skills to stay off the radar and away from the pathways of infection.

As Tess Pennington noted,

If you are in an area where others have Ebola:

  • Practice good hand washing. Have antibacterial gels on hand if soap is not available.
  • Carry cleaning wipes to wipe public surfaces.
  • Covering coughs and sneezes with elbows.
  • Stay away from crowds.
  • Meticulous cleaning and disinfecting of the home and the contents that come into a home.
  • Wearing a facemask and protective wear in addition to a respirator in public arenas.

Healthcare workers who may be exposed to people with Ebola should follow these steps:

  • Wear protective clothing, including masks, gloves, gowns, and eye protection.
  • Practice proper infection control and sterilization measures. For more information, see “Infection Control for Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers in the African Health Care Setting”.
  • Isolate patients with Ebola from other patients.
  • Avoid direct contact with the bodies of people who have died from Ebola.
  • Notify health officials if you have had direct contact with the blood or body fluids, such as but not limited to, feces, saliva, urine, vomit, and semen of a person who is sick with Ebola. The virus can enter the body through broken skin or unprotected mucous membranes in, for example, the eyes, nose, or mouth.

    Neither side in the so-called war on guns really wants to accomplish their stated goals. It’s a con game to keep us distracted from what they are really doing.

    The Republicans have had the White House and the Senate and the House and they have never passed real pro-gun legislation. Bought a full auto lately? Heck, have you priced a full auto lately?

    The Democrats as recently as a few years ago had Obama and the Senate and the House. They didn’t pass gun confiscation legislation either.

    It’s a game to keep us distracted.

    back to your regular;y scheduled psyops

    • Nobody says:

      There will be no gun ban, an no one is going to confiscate anything. Is the opposite, they scare us with that notion and in return they get what they really want… and that is for us to arm to the teeth so we can destroy ourselves with the SHTF!

    • Observer says:

      A state Senator once told me that these gun control things are really fund raisers for both parties. They usually don’t expect anything to pass. However, once in a while the Republicans will give in.

  2. Enemy of the State says:

    And this is also another distraction

  3. Anonymous says:

    “…But the shower wouldn’t start, and warning lights appeared as a cascading series of safety systems began to fail inside one of the world’s most advanced biosafety level 4 labs…’

    Well, it was close enough for gov’t work!

  4. TEST says:

    Natural News – a great companion site to read in addition to this – had this to say from a distinguished professor in TX, Dr. Pianka Folks this stuff is DISGUSTING – and is everywhere amont the elite. Not enough that the lef MURDERED 100 million last century per the Black Book of Communism, Oxford Univ. Press; not enough that Malthusianism has been demonstrated false (google the Julan Simon/Paul Ehrlich wager), now this horse manure, which is just utter EVIL, and worse than Nazism:

    “When Dr. Pianka was named by the academy as a Distinguished Texas Scientist in 2006, he stated that the AIDS virus was not killing off the surplus human population quickly enough. What he said was needed was to have Ebola eliminate 5.8 billion of the world’s then-6 billion people. Even more bizarre — and scary — is that his speech received a standing ovation at the academy’s annual meeting, at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. Indeed, as LifeSiteNews reported, quoting the Seguin Gazette, Dr. Pianka also stated, “Every one of you who gets to survive has to bury nine.” There is more discussion of that quote and Pianka’s statements here and here. Continuing in his speech, Pianka said, “[Disease] will control the scourge of humanity. We’re looking forward to a huge collapse. We’ve grown fat, apathetic and miserable,” he continued, describing the world as a “fat, human biomass.” Ebola manufactured? Curable? LifeSiteNews continued: The syllabus for one of Pianka’s courses reads, “Although [Ebola Zaire] Kills 9 out of 10 people, outbreaks have so far been unable to become epidemics because they are currently spread only by direct physical contact with infected blood…Ebola Reston, is airborne, and it is only a matter of time until Ebola Zaire evolves the capacity to be airborne.”

    As far as Dr. Pianka’s wish that someone might actually go with the idea of using Ebola as a bio-weapon, LifesiteNews quoted him as saying, “Good terrorists would be taking [Ebola Reston and Ebola Zaire] so that they had microbes they could let loose on the Earth that would kill 90 percent of people.” Cited from http://www.naturalnews.com/047143_Ebola_population_control_university_scientist.html#ixzz3FKhfM7uF

    • Test:
      It’s called thinning out the herd. We are insignificant. These psychos have been planning this for literally thousands of years. But only in the last hundred years or so have they come so close to the ultimate conclusion. As the author of the book “1984” said, if we don’t stop them it will be like having a boot on the face of humanity forever. This author was one of the insiders. He knew. His warning is part of the program. By telling us upfront the PTB are, from their perspective, resolved of culpability. It is like a guy whose got a girl he wants to bed. He tells her up front that he’s not looking for a commitment. If she goes for it, because she is female she thinks she can change his mind, he doesn’t care, he feels absolved of responsibility. In actuality he would respect her more if she told him to forget it. But these bastards don’t respect you for keeping them from killing you. They hate you. But they laugh at their victims who let them get away with whatever meanness their satanic minds concoct for us, their toys.

    Just think we keep screwing around the civilization that takes over might not be human. We just might be fosiles.

  6. Ketchupondemand says:

    This article reminds me a book titled The Hot Zone, about ebola and based on true events.
    Off topic, how long does potassium iodide last? I may need to re-order; mine is gettin old…

    • Sgt. Dale says:

      “K”
      Just like anything that doesn’t get air. At least 25 years, and then they just little strength.

      If I’m wrong some one pleas let us know! Thanks.
      Sgt.

      • Bird of Prey says:

        Depends on the manufacturer, as always with meds. 20yrs is a good ’round number’ (kept in the dark and cool …like 65 degree, yet 50 is better). Povidone Iodine can be applied to a gauze-patch (8-square-inches like a large band-aid), soak the gauze-part then apply to the lower torso and it will suffice barring “high contamination” – – whereas even the best in any amount would not get you through it …and you wouldn’t want it to.

        DO remember to somehow protect those pills, because if they can be irradiated you’ll be eating radioactive iodine then kill what you are trying to protect “in your neck”. We use a lead-box just for that purpose (to protect anything we might ingest AFTER a nuke). All made from hand and ancient chimney-lead-flashing. (battery lead-plates can be hammered together (using an avil or rock) to have the same effect, but paint it VERY well, and never handle it without gloves and NEVER melt it without knowledge of the same, or it may kill you in minutes or less (the gasses coming off it are deadly as they are not “pure” lead …which is toxic enough all by itself when heated to the melting point).

        Hope that helps a bit…

  7. Frank Thoughts says:

    Hey, Ebola!! Where you been hanging??! I thought Ebola was going to sweep through the West and create zombies, yet it disappeared as fast as it came: sort of just after the government signed over a few billion in ‘aid’ to the cause. Same happened with bird flu. As for that perennial favorite, AIDS, notice how there is very little in the way of information about it. Do people still get AIDS? How do you catch AIDS these days? Seems like it isn’t a problem because the government never talks about it. Hmmm…

  8. increMENTALism says:

    ‘Unintended Consequences’ by John Ross. The book is a bit dated now, but each time I read it I become immersed in the storyline. If nothing else, read the introduction. We will see some serious blowback from the orchestrations of the puppetmasters. EVERYTHING IS INTENTIONAL.

  9. aljamo says:

    This article reminds me of something I read yesterday, the growing use of micro organisms in food. Too tiny to see, all manner of drugs and other substances can be administered through food without the eater even having a clue. Don’t want to take that vaccination, no worry it will be delivered by other means. They can kill all they need without firing a shot. The CDC works hand in hand with big pharma and the genetic manipulators. What a sinister bunch of corporate murderers. Are people mind controlled to that extent?

  10. Sounds like ‘Captain Trips’ is back…

  11. Ted McCullough says:

    Another reason I wish I was just a squirrel. We r gonna kill ourselves off. I’d like to b just playin with my nuts and frolicking in the tree branches

    • Observer says:

      We have to be squirrels to do that?

      • Ted McCullough says:

        Well I guess that’s true! I do think this Mother Earth is gonna get really pissed one day and release a disease like nothing we’ve ever seen. This can of worms shoulda never been opened. To think of all the money humans spend on weapons and all this junk. Such a shame when could be using all this money for good things. Maybe we do need wiped off the planet like sodom and Gomorrah. Start all over again

  12. Anonymous says:

    “A veritable Noah’s ark of the world’s deadly viruses, bacteriological/biological agents and other pathogens that are part of ongoing research in top lab facilities…”…government’s germ warfare foundry and depot, to be used on the people as the “ultimate’ policing weapons to keep the masses enslaved–or else! The people who will be free, however, have recourse from government’s weapons of mass destruction: “So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 39:10)

  13. This is what happens when an agency hires for ‘diversity,’ rather than for competence.

    • Wake_Up_White_People says:

      Well, thats how this no good, criminal Federal Gov’t operates: Hire all blacks you can find and see how many well qualified whites you can f$%k up the a$$.

  14. And those Refugees include people from Africa. There are diseases and parasites in other Countries that Americans have not ever had and for which our ancestors in Europe have not given us an inherited immunity, such as Bubonic Plague. In Europe, people moved out of the cities and into the countryside. One more reason to avoid an urban environment. Public bathrooms scare me more than terrorists, especially those in crowded dirty places.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      Good points: one of the things that never gets attention is the prevalence of HIV in this population. All these males are a horny bunch and are looking to have as much sex as possible on their arrival, increasing the risk of spreading HIV. Throw in poor hygiene habits and other communicable diseases (TB, syphilis, gonorrhea,etc.) and you have a public health crisis being introduced into urban areas and cities.

      The thing to keep in mind is this: the mobile migrant population is not being introduced into 1950s America, with its nuclear families, stoic work and social habits. They are being introduced into the world of Grindr, Tindr, Facebook (F#ckbook), gay bars, pick-up bars, swinger bars, mass music festivals, topless and nude beaches, crystal meth, etc.

  15. 2isone says:

    It doesn’t have to be Ebola. Last Wednesday, my grandkids arrived at my house vomiting. 2 days later, I had it. Thought I was going to die.

    • 2isone:

      The best defense is a strong immune system. Sunlight without sunscreen in the hours before the sun is too hot or after it cools. Bone broth builds the gut which is where the immune system is. Chicken broth is probably the best during an illness. Ginger is good for nausea. Also chewing fennel seeds.

  16. rellik says:

    Wait till terrorists get biological weapons. Most Moslems want to go to heaven, so they don’t care if they die. I don’t care if they die either, I just wish they didn’t innocents with them.
    I’m waiting for Obama to dump infected refugees in red states.
    Democrats are just that sick minded. like environmentalists in
    the 12 monkeys movie.
    The imagination wanders.

    “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”

    All our times have come
    Here but now they’re gone
    Seasons don’t fear the reaper
    Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain… we can be like they are
    Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper
    Baby take my hand… don’t fear the reaper
    We’ll be able to fly… don’t fear the reaper
    Baby I’m your man…

    La la la la la
    La la la la la

    Valentine is done
    Here but now they’re gone
    Romeo and Juliet
    Are together in eternity… Romeo and Juliet
    40, 000 men and women everyday… Like Romeo and Juliet
    40, 000 men and women everyday… Redefine happiness
    Another 40, 000 coming everyday… We can be like they are
    Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper
    Baby take my hand… don’t fear the reaper
    We’ll be able to fly… don’t fear the reaper
    Baby I’m your man…

    La la la la la
    La la la la la

    Love of two is one
    Here but now they’re gone
    Came the last night of sadness
    And it was clear she couldn’t go on
    Then the door was open and the wind appeared
    The candles blew and then disappeared
    The curtains flew and then he appeared… saying don’t be afraid
    Come on baby… and she had no fear
    And she ran to him… then they started to fly
    They looked backward and said goodbye… she had become like they are
    She had taken his hand… she had become like they are
    Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper

  18. Old Guy says:

    Way back when the EBOLA was the hot topic I stated that it wouldn’t go pandemic here. Its a west African disease. Likely engineered to only work on one race. Healthy white folks who get it recover. same with the Zitka mosquito virus. It will not go pandemic. Now ifthe electric that the common masses cant live without is cut off then you will see a big die off.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      You may be right: it does seem race specific just like HIV. These things run like wild fire in non-white populations. Ebola is a joke: it never stood a chance against modern, Western hygiene and diets: it is opportunistic and needs people who are living in filth.

      Interestingly, there are populations in the world where HIV just struggles to spread. This must have to do with their race because these places are just as poor and people have lots of unprotected sex.

      With the advances in gene science, and the fact smart people can now do this stuff in home labs (edit and mess with genes), we will see synthetic race- and ethnicity-specific bio-weapons deployed. This would be much worse than any single gun man. On the plus side, such things could be used to create a stronger human being and eliminate forever deformities and weaknesses in the population.

    • I am not sure who displays the most stupidity, you or Frank No Thought! Its a toss up and the really scary part, others think you actually have a valid point. Very sad!

  19. aljamo says:

    I read an article about how most all Muslim countries have a very high percentage of inbred people. First cousin marriages were supposedly favored and written by the prophet Muhammad, leading to a heavy incidence of low IQ and other genetic problems. These morons have kill the infidels cemented in their brains from an early age. Obama is one of them, the perfected terrorists.

  20. ExRegAF says:

    Hey Mac; have had two articles (one today & the other a couple of days ago)go unreadable due to IE going bonkers. Click on the article, today it was the Orlando thing, and their stupid window shows up; the unable etc. Clear it & it pops right back up, screen freeze & all. Was wondering if anybody else has had this happen.

    • Hi Ex – thanks for the heads up here — I don’t use IE but will see if i can identify what the problem may be… I am not seeing issues with FireFox or Chrome so not sure what it could be, but with so many browsers and platforms sometimes things break.

      Will check it out.

      thanks!

  21. When we moved here, to western Montana, back in the ’70’s, There was a small place called Ribi Labs, that was famous for having developed a cure for rocky mountain tick fever. They also found a way to cure eye cancer in cattle.That was the 70’s, and a lot has changed over the years. The former Ribi labs became one of the three most important infectious disease labs in the country, next to Bethesda, and Army’s germ warfare center.
    Anyhow, When they reopened,as the new Class 4-5 center, They went to great lengths to assure the local population that with all the newest state of the art security and protective systems being used, there was absolutely no chance of there being any threat to the local population. Hmmm.
    About a year after they opened, a small notice in the local paper advised us that a local man who worked at the lab had contracted “Plague”. He was sent home, and we were assured that there was no danger, and that they were “monitoring” the situation. That sounds a lot like they did a planned release, and were following up to see how effective it was.
