Report: Ebola Suspected In Europe: “Broken Through All Containment Efforts”
SHTF Plan ^ | 4/20/14

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.

Though they have denied that the Pisa hospital was locked down due to Ebola, they seem to be bracing for the possibility of a severe epidemic in Rome and Milan.

It was just a matter of time.

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.

Bring Out Your Dead

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...

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.

Up until this outbreak, if it is Ebola as said, Ebola has been not that easy to catch, as it is blood borne. So at the link one snip says:

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.

The Reston variety of ebola is airborne, fortunately it doesn’t cause hemorrhagic fever in humans.

One thing I would caution about is showing up at a hospital with the symptoms, or even sick enough to raise suspicions, at a hospital. They can put you in quarantine in the hospital and you can't say a damn thing about it. Then, they decide all medical care.

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.

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.

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.

So this can’t be Reston Ebola, then.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reston_virus

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,

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 think the credibility of the blog is questioned in your mind. Obviously others think differently, because of the valuable information that has been provided by some of their stories.

Now if you were talking banning NBC/ABC/PMSN, who have no credibility, that I might be willing to listen to.

“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.
