“We Now Have Urban Ebola” In Congo, WHO Warns Of “Potentially Explosive Increase” In Cases

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

Experts fear an “explosive increase” in Ebola cases after an outbreak in Congo entered a “new phase” and spread from the countryside to a city.

The BBC reports that Health Minister Oly Ilunga Kalenga confirmed a case in Mbandaka, a city of a million people about 130km (80 miles) from the area where the first cases were confirmed earlier this month.

The city is a major transportation hub with routes to the capital Kinshasa.

Forty-four people have been infected and 23 people are known to have died.

Senior World Health Organization (WHO) official Peter Salama said the spread to Mbandaka meant there was the potential for an “explosive increase” in cases.

“This is a major development in the outbreak,” he told the BBC. “We have urban Ebola, which is a very different animal from rural Ebola. The potential for an explosive increase in cases is now there.”

Mr Salama, the WHO’s deputy director-general for emergency preparedness and response, said Mbandaka’s location on the Congo river, widely used for transportation, raised the prospect of Ebola spreading to surrounding countries such as Congo-Brazzaville and the Central African Republic as well as downstream to Kinshasa, a city of 10 million people.

“This puts a whole different lens on this outbreak and gives us increased urgency to move very quickly into Mbandaka to stop this new first sign of transmission,” he said.

The BBC adds that the WHO said it was not recommending any trade or travel restrictions either within DR Congo, for example between Mbandaka and Kinshasa, or internationally.

But Mr Salama said that 13 countries in the region were boosting border screening measures and said DR Congo itself was increasing exit screening measures.

“The good news is that the DR Congo population is very used to Ebola outbreaks,” he added.

“They know to protect themselves by avoiding mass gatherings and mass funerals. They know as well that traditional healers can amplify the outbreak.”

As The Daily Mail notes, it is the ninth time Ebola has been recorded in Congo since the disease made its first known appearance near its northern Ebola river in the 1970s.

Ebola is most feared for the internal and external bleeding it can cause in victims owing to damage done to blood vessels.

The Mail reports that health workers have recorded confirmed, probable and suspected cases of Ebola in three health zones of Congo’s Equateur province, and have identified 432 people who may have had contact with the disease, the WHO said.

Supplies sent to Congo included more than 300 body bags for safe burials in affected communities. The vaccine will be reserved for people suspected of coming into contact with the disease, as well as health workers.

The vaccine requires storage at a temperature between -60 and -80 degrees C, tricky in a country with unreliable electricity.

“We are now tracing more than 4,000 contacts of patients and they have spread out all over the region of northwest Congo, so they have to be followed up and the only way to reach them is motorcycles,” Salama said.

    2. Sebastion

      Ebola virus so rapidly and totally metabolizes and consumes all available vitamin C in the bodies of the victims that an advanced stage of scurvy is literally produced after only a few days. Scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition;
      In the classic form of scurvy that evolves very slowly from the gradual depletion of vitamin C, the immune system is compromised enough for infection to claim the patient’s life before extensive Hemorrhagic blood loss occurs.

      Scurvy represents only a partial depletion of vitamin C; the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets are unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system kills the virus. Hemorrhagic fevers attack populations low in vitamin C.

        You might be right. Linus Pauling was a genius.


        Yes, and the book you have read is: CURING THE INCURABLE by Thomas Levy, MD and it’s an awesome book.

        One night, I was surfing YouTube and watched a speech he gave about this. After 8+ years of college, I have a medical background and could not believe what he was saying. I could follow the chemistry, etc. but had never, EVER, been exposed to such a concept.

        So, Sebastian you are correct and I would encourage everybody to track down Dr.Levy’s YouTube speech and buy his book. It will change your life.

        P.S.: Linus Pauling was wrong in only one way: He did not recommend HIGHER dosages. The effects of Vit. C are dose related and just about everything can be cured/prevented with the correct dose….as it was done in the late 30’s in curing Polio….read the book.

        • Ketchupondemand

          Centurion, I recently bought a pound of powdered Vitamin C and will probably get more.
          I remember reading about dosages and it may have been by Pauling and regarding cancer treatment:
          Take 1000mg. per HOUR and increase dosage gradually until symptoms of diarrhea occur, then back off the dosage slightly.

          One more thing. In the book Coconut Cures the author states bacteria cannot survive in coconut oil.
          (Viruses are different and your mileage may vary.)
          You need about 3 tablespoons daily for optimum benefits.
          We fry everything in it. Start with using 1/4 the amt. of other oils.
          Like colloidal silver, coco oil should be in your storage.
          rellik, yeah, I went off topic too. My bad.

            both wife and I like coconut
            so the added flavor in fried

              We grow Pinapples here in FL. Just cut the tops off soak them in shallow water a few months until roots form and then plop them in the ground. 2 years you will have pineapples. My Ratio here in FL- 100 Pineapple plants produced about 20 pineapples nnually in July Aug, then they go dormant 1 year and other sprout comes out to produce another. So keep planting pineapple patches all over the place year after year, Recycle the tops, They grow great in semi shade under a tree. They are frost sensitive, so consider in warm climates or in a green house. I am beginning to think the entire Green House concept and heirloom seeds will be my on-site grocery store in SHTF. Lets get busy and be food independent, Homesteading. Eat fresh food daily, NO GMO Frankenstein disease crap food for me. YOYO- You’re On Your Own in SHTF.

            I just finished watching a series of YouTUbe videos concerning taking LARGE doses of Vit-C (10 to 15 grams per day) to combat virus infections. What else did I learn? Well, one of the authorities on this said EBOLA is a 500 GRAM per day infection…….Yep………..he claims to fight EBOLA, medical workers, and those infected, will have to be put on IV infusions of 50 GRAMS per hour immediately……in other words, when this EBOLA epidemic spreads, it will kill off a massive number of Africans…..be mentally prepared for what is coming and start taking 2 grams every hour as soon as ANY signs of EBOLA show up in America……it is going to spread horrifically….

      Monkey jerky.. it’s on the menu. What’s the chance the WHO created this Ebola around the same time as the HIV was created? Who is more despised Africans or Aids victims? Why is facebook pulling youtube videos that promote CBD oil from cannabis while calling it dangerous and potentially deadly when all research touts the healing properties. The existing medical system is a fraudulent entity with police state protection.


        I believe the book you refer to is called “THE RIVER”, by Edward Hooper.

        The author goes to great length to show AIDS was introduced into humans due to the use of contaminated Monkey Kidney tissue/cells which were used to produce the Polio vaccine. Smart move.

        He documents the capture of monkeys, that had the simian version of AIDS, and how they were sent to the US and sold to the pharmaceutical companies that were making the Polio vaccine. NOBODY bothered to check the monkeys for any diseases. Why should they…………..

        He tried over and over to get original sourced materials, journals, lab notes, etc. from those who created the Polio vaccines used in Africa (tested in Africa). He goes so far as to locate and explain that the very first known infections of AIDS were the exact same locations that received these Polio vaccines. The exact same populations…hmmm?

        PS: Many of the originally vaccinated children in Africa, who got this contaminated Aids infected Polio vaccine, got Polio as well until somebody figured out to give the children large doses of Vit C, which for some reason, prevented them from contracting Polio from the vaccine.

        There is SO MUCH to this.

        One of the items I added to my preps was 5 bags for pool shock. I don’t have a swimming pool.

        Pool shock is chlorine. Two tablespoons of pool shock makes one gallon of chlorine bleach when diluted in water.

        One small bag of pool shock costs about $4.00 at home depot. It will make 75 gallons of chlorine bleach.

        I figured if there was an epidemic I could bleach the outside of my house and the front porch to help decontaminate any viruses.

          Hey John,

          Watch your supply very carefully.

          I’m talking, check it every month!!!
          The container/packaging WILL break down.

          I started with just vacuum packing the 1 pound packs.
          The stuff will attack the poly bag over time.

          I ended up shifting the stuff to glass jars with Teflon seals on the rings.

          When you transfer it to glass, do this on a day with a breeze. Stand on the upwind side and still do a Lil’ at a time. That stuff will KILL you. I’m now looking into buying my own chlorine generator to make mine own when needed.

          To those who read this, take my word for it and DO NOT STOCK PILE!!! Save your money and your health. If you want to keep like a pound of it, put the pack in a mason jar and away from any type of metal (it will rust the crap out of any nearby)

      I think we all should be afraid….very. very afraid. I was in international business, for 12 years. I sold to Europe, Asia, Australia, Central and South America. I trid to sell to Japan but they are tough and you need to be Japanese owned to get any business. ( we were not we were a US company). Russia and China had not opened up yet, so that was not possible for us to do business. How much business did I do with Africa?…NOTHING…nada….zip. Africa is SO corrupt that unless you are paying off someone you are not in the “club” to rape and pillage the people to steal their wealth. Russia and China are big “developers” of Africa as they are adept at stealing,bribing terrorizing…etc. They are almost as good as the USA….WHY AM I TALKING BUSINESS on a post about EBOLA?…..To raise the point that Africa is so corrupt that I don’t think we have a snow balls chance in hell to contain Ebola. It will be a world wide epidemic and we will have a “red p;ague” like the world had a “black plague” in the Middle Ages….IF you think a border guard or gov’t official WON’t look the other way regarding the transmittal of items across the border, for a bribe…you are in ” la la land” and deserve to live in California which is going to the dogs, and to the illegals defecating in the streets out there..!!!…I suggest you read the book..”The Hot Zone” which describes the first contact Western medicine had with Ebola and the futile attempt to find the cause. It is still believed that it came from a monkey and that humans either had sex with it or ate of the flesh of a diseased monkey,.. but the germ has never been found to data. Ebola can be transmitted BY AIR which the book mentions and WHO and UN do not bother to tell you…!!!!!…I believe Ebola to be one of the plagues the Bible mentioned in the “last days”. IF you think I am a fanatic becasue I mention the Bible do your own research. The world gov’ts were described in the Book of Daniel when he described a statue that represented all the world gov’t that were going to be,. then the toppling of the statue, meaning the end of this system of things. We are living in the days of wrong is right and right is wrong,.. also fore told….and ONE WORLD GOV”T is being discussed as a reality ( The NEW WORLD ORDER) where you must have the “mark of the beast” in order to buy your daily bread. What more proof can you want?…It was all foretold and we are in it, now. Ebola is just one of the signs….

        Had a conversation with a guy at the UN who handled procurements. I told him about all the corruption stories in the newspapers about the UN. He pointed out that 90 per cent of them were related to the the UN missions in Africa and/or involving African-origin UN staff. Later, when the Ebola outbreak happened, I saw the same thing: it was the WHO Africa office that refused to tell anyone about the outbreak until it was too late.

        Same goes with all the peacekeepers screwing kiddies for food etc.: most of it is happening in Africa. The UN is always finding African staff who have committed crimes popping up working somewhere else in the UN. There are many corruption cases ongoing at the UN involving African staff.

      Ebola is not the only problem.

      In the Congo, the average IQ is the same as the IQ of a retarded person in the USA. The people there suffer from poor impulse control. Quick to passion, these people are different from us.

      White do-gooders, always helping, have taken a small harmless bunch of “savages” (happily fighting among themselves, whom were never more than a few thousand poor but free souls) and turned them into millions of, potentially dangerous to us, parasites, with all manner of diseases.

        Africa would have been fine if they kept the population under control. The problem is the governments there can’t handle their populations and their development. But now the population is growing like crazy but governments can’t control it.

        The Chinese and the Russians never hire Africans to work on their projects because they just do not trust them to do the job. They make very basic deals: basically bribe the local politician for resources, move in a Chinese work crew, build the infrastructure, then loot the resources as quickly as possible. Rinse, repeat.

        The current plan is to ship the surplus Africans to Europe and the US/Canada while the Russians and Chinese loot the resources from the continent. Eventually the West will look like Africa, and China and Russia will look like the West once did (China is nearly there).

      Don’t think this Eboli can’t rip through America and Europe, or better, end up in Mexico and we get a massive “million migrant march” right to our Southern Border.

      Then, the choice is we start firing the .50cal or we get a massive Eboli invasion. The future, no matter how you feel, is going to be HORRIBLE and VIOLENT. And, we asked for it.

      Every “White” nation has a huge 3rd world population inside. We Americans were STUPID enough to bring them in as cheap labor, but the Europeans were even more stupid. They could see what a disaster “diversity” is, yet they allowed themselves to be brainwashed and then take in MILLIONS of non-White, 3rd world, Low IQ “refugees”. Well, that is how Eboli is going to enter Europe.

      BUT, the good news is the migrant communities will get the infection first and worst. Whites are smart enough to self-segregate and hunker down. Sure, many who are too stupid to stay in White Only areas will get the infection, but most Whites will survive……we survive best when the chips are down, and THINKING and SELF-CONTROL are the keys to surviving. We have that advantage…that White Privilege….thank you very much.

      People in the Western World have weaker immune systems than people in Africa. This comes from the western diet and a sedentary lifestyle. Add to this that the median age in the western world is higher than it is in Africa. The immune system weakens with age. Fortunately, we have better containment and treatment facilities.

      There are people in this world working on diseases that are even more effective at killing people than the natural diseases. Doesn’t speak well of humanity as a species. Good time to become a hermit?
