Nearly 100 children have died in during the most recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Health officials are warning that it isn’t over yet as the disease continues to infect more people and spread further.
“We are at a crossroads,” Heather Kerr, Save the Children’s Country Director in DRC, said in a press release. “If we don’t take urgent steps to contain this, the outbreak might last another six months, if not the whole year.” According to the press release from Save the Children, 65 of the 97 children who have died since August were under the age of 5 years old. More than 180 other children have been orphaned by the disease’s most recent outbreak.
This outbreak is the second-largest in recorded history, with the charity reporting at least 731 confirmed cases of Ebola within the last six months, and 484 deaths. The country suffered its worst outbreak between 2014 and 2016, which claimed over 11,000 lives and prompted calls for more preventative efforts and the development of an experimental vaccine. However, the lack of Ebola knowledge continues to plague relief efforts. –Fox News
This outbreak has also prompted health workers to begin administering an experimental Ebola vaccine. But questions about its efficacy have arisen lately, as the Associated Press reported that some of those who have received the experimental vaccine have also become infected with the deadly Ebola virus. More than 70,000 people have received an experimental Ebola vaccine, and Merck, the creator of the vaccine, says they have plans to ship 120,000 more doses to the DRC by the end of February.
The culture in the DRC is playing a role in the virus’s quick spread as well. “People have disrupted funerals because they didn’t believe the deceased had succumbed to the virus,” she said in the press release. “Aid workers were threatened because it was believed they spread Ebola. We have to scale up our efforts to reach out to the vocal youth and community leaders to build trust and to help us turn this tide. Treating the people who are sick is essential, but stopping Ebola from spreading further is just as important.”
The Associated Press further reported that the outbreak, which is mostly afflicting the eastern region, is nearing Goma, a major border city with a population of over 1 million. Adding to the confusion, cases are still emerging without any link to any confirmed ones, a sign of how difficult it is to track the virus.
With government and health organizations failing to contain the virus up to this point, Ebola spreading into Europe and the United States becomes a real possibility. In such an instance preparing for the worst case scenario may require self-containment within clean rooms in one’s home, as well as biological-rated gas masks and air filtration.
This will flare out of control and nobody will see it coming. People have been banging the drum on this Ebola outbreak so much that people have Ebola fatigue and won’t pay attention.
We will wake up one morning as see that 100,000 people will have been infected.
Then a white person in Nebraska will have been infected and the panic will set it.
This is not new – Why have not the African Governments stepped up and educate its people not to eat Monkey’s and go to the funerals of the dead that have been infected??
Why has the African Governments not put in place the required medical infrastructure to deal with this?
Why does the African country’s need adult supervision.
Yet South Africa blacks want to steal White farmers land – and turn a well functioning faring infrastructure into a disaster.
We in this country have tried to fix the black problem with billions of dollars , affirmative action etc. What have we gotten after 60 years – BLM and Kneeling at NFL games
Its enough for me.
What have we gotten after 60 years – BLM and Kneeling at NFL games.
You need to pay reparations!!!
Huh, couldn’t get your booze with your card this time?
Sorry JS, disregard. Duh.
What have we gotten after 60 years – BLM and Kneeling at NFL games
You need to pay reparations!!!
You do know that the USA imported 300,000 IRISH slaves
Where is my reparations??
Educating people “not to eat monkeys” would still leave them wide open to infection. While the initial spillover event is rare, the vector can be anything from a primate, to a bat. Did you know that pigs are a natural host of the EBV? AND they become symptomatic…and yes, they could potentially infect humans. We really don’t know what the next spillover event could be…or where for that matter.
Why do these Ebola outbreaks with their high number of dead always seem to happen in African countries instead of Western countries?
There must be a reason for it, but I can’t seem to put my finger on it.
120,000 more doses and 70,000 innoculated equals 190,000 potentially innoculated.
DRC population in 2019 is 81.34 million.
Tell me, how effective would 190,000 be against 81.34 million? It’s not. It’s innoculating first responders which you cannot all deploy to the hot zones, because that would commit everyone there, risking critical infrastructure people.
What they really are doing is assuming Ebola will break out, and cordon santiere the hot zones, let them perish, and try to prevent infected folks from harming healthcare providers and soldiers and politicians in the other zones.
Last time, six othernations ended up with infections because the first thing refugees do is flee to safety. That’s human nature.
And when they flee, Ebola is only one infection out of many as it’s likely they are sick with other ailments too.
Innoculating 0.0023% of the population is a political face-saving move rather than a medically useful move. It’s absurd.
Africa needs to be cordoned off with access only allowed through the military.
It is simply an ungovernable space without non-African leadership. The population is out of control and is fleeing in larger numbers every year, mostly to Europe.
Africa is rich in resources and China is best placed to make the most of them. Notice how China does not take in those refugees, Only white women are to have access to the ‘bone men’.
As for Ebola, it is a disease of poor hygiene and will keep coming back if hygiene is not improved.
Instead, let Ebola do what will happen anyway.
Maybe we shouldn’t help you or anyone like you, then?
Nope.Zero socialism. Why are you full of hate? That gives you cancer and accomplishes nothing.
My immediate thought upon meeting many nonbelievers is they are very unheathy, undisciplined, spiteful, warped, bitter lost souls. Yet they claim to be enlightened!
What is it that you actually know that you can post about?
I suspect zilch. Your posts are like vapid rotten smelling farts.
Couldnt tell you. I dont stick around smelling farts and rating them, but hey another fantastic admission from you about twisted flatulence obsession. Your own words. Egotistical arrogant fraud. Sound like a closet socialist still though. Childish self indulgent baby boomer. Its the least i expect of you. And then you confirm it with your petty abusive posts. You were never a preacher, no religion would tolerate your behavior if you were. Closeted whackjob sociopath. Ill be looking into pedo priests in WKY. Its a worthy exercise.
So you openly admit you are trying to doxx me? And you are obsessed with me.
You are a weirdo stalker with delusional thinking and puffed up self-importance, while openly Satanic.
What a combination.
After colonizing Africa, China comes down with a hemorrhagic fever attributed to Ebola, Marburgh, or automobile exhaust. Blood coming from the eyes.
Go back and read what you wrote. You are angry that some Christians abandoned self-preservation to help those ill with Ebola.
Why not just shout, “I am evil and I love Lucifer!” ?
That is what your whole philosophy comes down to. You hate people and want them to die and you don’t want anyone to risk saving them.
WEIRD. It’s like the ravings of a psychopath.
I see your back to the old tactic of putting words into other peoples mouths… So dishonest, you were never a preacher. Just a fraudulent Devil quoting the bible. An arrogant Poser.
You are less then excrement because at least crap can fertilize
Do you believe in the claims of charismatics / apostolics, or that miracles have ceased after Pentecost?
I find it hard to believe the claims of some that there are no more active manifestations of the Holy Spirit.
I find it equally unlikely that all claims of active manifestation of the Holy Spirit are happening. That is wishful thinking.
It’s some where in between.
It’s EXACTLY like this Gospel story.
1 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.
2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing
him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. 4 But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed
them . 6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
Our unbelief ie our lack of faith then actively blocks the manifestation of the Holy Spirit.
And that is CORPORATE unbelief not individual unbelief. When people are unified in their “shared beliefs” ie shared Christian faith, then miracles happen.
It s synergistic power.
The book, The Secret, is a satanic lie, but there is a kernel of truth buried in there.
If you believe something will work, that buoyant optimism will initially sustain you and all will seem well. If an entire nation pulls together, then even when caught with their pants down at Pearl Harbor, they can create a massive indomitable military force.
But the only sustaining power is by the Holy Spirit manifesting in shared belief to do miracles.
America is broken by no sharing of beliefs and that is how the Elite have systemically weakened us…by design…to bring about global governance.
The Bible tells us that Jesus sent the Conforter ie the Holy Spirit to guide, direct, and intercede for us. Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit…but our sins profane those temples.
So between sins and unbelief, then that limits the power to manifest miracles.
Even Jesus Christ was limited in Mark 6 because the people corporately didn’t believe he had power. They saw him as a little boy who had grown up and was just a carpenter.
Fervant faith and purity of heart and shared across believers has an enormous untapped power, but needs the catalyst of the ELOHIM because we are just puny silly humans who are easily distracted by Lucifer.
Lucifer wants you to think that he has the power and that you are powerless. That is a lie.
When Mark 6:6 says marveled, it actually might be better translated as Jesus was astonished or was shocked by their unbelief.
Imagine, Jesus goes to his own village and tries to help them, and they are OFFENDED??? It had to hurt his feelings because if they had believed, look at all the other miracles he did.
The word offended in Mark 6:3 is transated offended, but the,greek word is skandalizo.
skandalizó: to put a snare (in the way), hence to cause to stumble, to give offense
Original Word: σκανδαλίζω
Part of Speech: Verb
Phonetic Spelling: (skan-dal-id’-zo)
Definition: to put a snare (in the way), to cause to stumble, to give offense
Usage: I cause to stumble, cause to sin, cause to become indignant, shock, offend.
Cognate: 4624 skandalízō – properly, set a snare (” stumbling-block “); (figuratively) “to hinder right conduct or thought; to cause to stumble ” – literally, “to fall into a trap” ( Abbott-Smith ). See 4625 ( skandalon )
They were indignant and hindered Jesus. It spiritually was a trap.
All these unbelievers in the millions who are indignant about Christianity, spiritually trap and block miracles. they hinder the Gospel physically, mentally, amd spiritually due to corporate lack of faith.
Think of the spiritual implications of being around immoral unbelievers not to mention wanton Luciferians.
This is a valid reason to not be around those kinds of people who hinder the power of the Holy Spirit as well as are parasites, as well as try to infect you with their perverse beliefs.
With a contagion like Ebola, an epidemiologist dies their best with MANY healthcare providers trying to find patient zero. Then every infected person has ptentially affected others and MUST be tracked.
OK. With Ebola and 1,000 patients, they were tracking 30,000! 30 to one potentially infected. That becomes physically IMPOSSIBLE to do as the number rises.
OK. Then what they are finding with Ebola is only 20% of the new infections are in these 30,000. So WHERE THE HECK are the other infections coming from?
All these facts are verified by CIDRAP. This is not speculation.
You go in as a medical mission, say of Christian origin like Shepherd’s Purse, and risk everything because you are faithfully following the Gospel of Jesus Christ particularly Matthew 25.
And all the anonymous whiners who mock and troll like cowards would be the first to cry and beg, “Save us” when they are sick and in the same situation.
These same fools will squeal if they feel they are being limited in any way, but then want to impose on the workers of charity??? Really???
Some brave Christian RN or physician uses their own money and gives up vacation and maybe quits their job to save infected people in the DRC, and you cowards bad mouth them.
You make me sick. You are demon possessed scum who won’t help anyone. Then lie about any Christian who actually did good.
How low can you stoop?
You better get on your knees and beg YAHWEH to forgive you or you will pay the ultimate price.
