Skip to comments.Report: Ebola Suspected In Europe: “Broken Through All Containment Efforts”
Posted on 04/20/2014 1:38:13 PM PDT by Kartographer
Though officials at the World Health Organization are feverishly working to stop the spread of the Ebola virus in what is now seven African nations, their efforts may be for naught. In Guinea, a hot spot for the deadly contagion, government health officials have said that the outbreak is nearly under control. Yet, Reuters reports that the government planned to stop publicly releasing the death toll to avoid causing unnecessary panic.
But panic may be in order.
Despite the best efforts of emergency health workers it appears that virus may have crossed out of Africa into Europe.

Fuel Air Bomb _ Outbreak 1995
One way to be sure!
I don’t think a fuel-air bomb will do the trick. Now, a pony nuke.....
The LIBs and one-worlders teach us that we are one big, hugging, loving world. Everyone is the same and wonderful. Their ignorant programs create this unfettered mobility. I hope ebola finds them.
Before long Ebola will be climbing over the fences in the North African Spanish enclaves and from there migrate to Europe.
Stupid Europeans! Almost as stupid and as evil as the anti-American American ruling class & Obama regime operatives.
And no Charlton Heston to develop the antidote.
Yet Another Catastrophe.
Every day the propaganda is the same.
One big scary thing or another.
Watch the procedures they use and you might find some hints for surviving Bio warfare.
I am so screwed.
The same people who created policies to contain AIDS are working to contain this. Good Luck!
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
The latest on many diseases, including ebola, can be found here. Updates frequently:
What’s the big deal, Kart? If there is a REAL outbreak, then everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is confined to home for at least a month. So those people with food and water (especially water) on hand for 30 days or so will be JUST FINE.
Now, I would REALLY HOPE that ALL FREEPERS have a way to provide for their water (and food, if not overweight) for at least 30 days. If not, they deserve what they get.
Wouldn’t want to hurt any Progressive feelings by instituting a QUARANTINE and shooting violators.
Ebola is always going to be self-limiting — the problem with a virus that kills quickly is that it loses vectors too quickly to spread it .....
“Obamacare, now shovel ready!)
The initial Ebola outbreak in Guinea is believed to have started when hunters came in contact with infected fruit bats. The Ebola virus is spread between humans through direct contact. Once infected, it can take up to 21 days for symptoms to appear, which include high fever, headaches, and fatigue. At that point, the infected person is contagious.
Direct contact is ambiguous. A disease in which you have to get someone's bodily fluids into your bodily fluids is not easy to catch. So, either this is not Ebola, or Ebola has changed. If Ebola is now easy to transmit, bad bad news.
Why? You’re better prepared for a flesh-eating monster invasion than anyone else I know.
The Reston variety of ebola is airborne, fortunately it doesn’t cause hemorrhagic fever in humans.
Been there, done that, during the swine flu epidemic. I didn't have swine flu. But once they put me in quarantine, I couldn't get out for four days.
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em...
“I didn’t have swine flu. But once they put me in quarantine, I couldn’t get out for four days.”
Scary stuff. People have NO CLUE just how much power the government has in an ‘emergency’, whether real or not.
Having the ability to hit any living thing has it’s advantages and it’s disadvantages.
Happy Easter, Laz, ol’ buddy....
What is a pony nuke?
Personally, I think the shtf blog should be banned here.
Personally, I disagree with you on that.
A small nuke. Something like the old Davy Crockett anti-personnel nuke. If there’s a small enough concentration (like the size of the camp in that clip), something in that range should be able to eliminate any disease. Ebola is a finicky little bugger, and needs very specific conditions to exist. A high dose of radiation would wipe it out.
Abject sensationalism, wild claims, unnecessary fear mongering and exploitation of the gullible.
Yes, I am a prepper.
I've seen that behavior before.
Personally, I think the shtf blog should be banned here.
Nah, it shouldn’t be banned at FR. Don’t open the threads if they offend or annoy you.
Aha, I should have known you would know a lot more than I do. So is this Reston variety that people are getting? And is Reston Ebola also have a high fatality rate? I’m going to have to look up Reston Ebola now.
A number of sites have been banned by the owner. I guess they offended or annoyed him.
So this can’t be Reston Ebola, then.
I just read the whole page, this is the relevant part (just for others since you already know about it):
-——Despite its status as a level-4 organism, Reston virus is non-pathogenic to humans,
Thanks for posting this, have copied it and sent to son in London.
They did the same thing years ago to my son because he’d been in another hospital where another patient had a contagious disease (our son wasn’t exposed). He was, nonetheless, quarantined for two weeks. I really think it had more to do with the vulnerability of other patients in the pediatric hospital.
I would think that conservative forums should have some kind of standards for credibility of posted articles/Twilight Zone stories. I take it you don’t.
The Feds will look the other way so that Washington DC continues to have a never-ending supply of cab drivers.
Now if you were talking banning NBC/ABC/PMSN, who have no credibility, that I might be willing to listen to.
“I am so screwed.”
It is passed by human contact. If it comes here, keep your hands off women and you’ll be fine since you have stored water and food and security.
Is Rooters credible? Because it is referenced in the article.
Well, God willing, there will be a lot of help.
Just be ready to run if the computer starts a countdown.
“Ebola is always going to be self-limiting the problem with a virus that kills quickly is that it loses vectors too quickly to spread it .....”
You didn’t click to the part that says it can stay in a body for 20 days before there are signs so the infected person can spread it to others for 20 days. That is not quickly killing as you said. Once it breaks out in the carrier, then it kills that one quickly.
Find the movie, “Contagion” on Utube and watch it.
