Quarantines would forward Pianka's agenda - and allow TPTB to choose the populations to be exterminated.





When you want 90% of the world population removed you do not need to be that picky.
It would be more about protecting the 10%


I can't argue with that. But that likely explains why "they" want a great big pool of guinea pigs desperate to be experimented upon. (Planning for the future, as in it ain't happenin' now.)



[sigh]













I do know that if all this is by design then quarantine will 100% not work ever.
Since you would have a outside influence helping the virus along starting new flare ups regardless of quarantine.
And giving counter productive advice.

Lets hope it is just nature playing up.


All they needed to do was cover up the initial outbreak for a few months. Which they did. Looks like something went wrong at Kenema Hospital and the researchers assumed the 'outbreak' would just "burn itself out" like has always happened in the past. But it didn't.



….Raphael Frankfurter, an aid worker in eastern Sierra Leone, described hearing one woman saying about the hospital in Kenema: “Ebola is a lie! They’re sending people to Kenema to die!”


Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium (VHFC)

The Consortium is a collaboration between Tulane, Scripps Research Institute, Broad Institute, Harvard University, University of California at San Diego, University of Texas Medical Branch, Autoimmune Technologies LLC, Corgenix Medical Corporation, Kenema Government Hospital (Sierra Leone), Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital (Nigeria) and various other partners in West Africa.



USAMRIID (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases), located at Fort Detrick, Maryland, is the lead medical research laboratory for the U.S. Biological Defense Research Program, and plays a leading role in national defense and in infectious disease research. …

Corgenix and USAMRIID are members of the Viral Hemorrhagic fever Consortium

I found this article extremely interesting.




The World Health Organization will host a closed-door conference in Geneva with some 100 health-care experts from around the world to explore the alternative medical treatments and experimental drugs available to combat Ebola

No journalists allowed.




The WHO decision to explore experimental Ebola drugs and treatments appears to have been prompted in part by a widely reported offer made Monday by the Japanese company Toyama Chemical, a pharmaceutical subsidiary of the photo giant Fujifilm.

The Japanese company will deliver to the WHO at no cost a quantity of the experimental drug Favipiravir, originally known as “T-705.” The drug is marketed by Toyama Chemical under the trade name “Avigan.” The company will supply enough doses for 20,000 people in an attempt to control the Ebola outbreak affecting West Africa.

If I were in W. Africa I'd be furious. Suddenly, everyone is hot to develop a vaccine when before nobody cared or bothered?

Ebola spreads to Nigeria oil hub Port Harcourt


He died last Friday but the results of the tests have only just been announced by Nigeria's health minister.


On Wednesday, Nigeria announced that schools would not reopen until 13 October in order to try and contain the disease.

Them 2 facts alone make me question the numbers in Nigeria.

...Me too. Note that (Nigerian Health Minister) Chukwu has already been caught in numerous lies. ...And why did Nigeria sit on this 'news' since last Friday? Same act they pulled with announcing Sawyer's infection and death - who they're blaming for everything btw.

I do not think we can trust what they say now so we will have to infer things about Nigeria

I get the feeling we will see more cases in Port Harcourt or they probably would have said nothing rather than announcing it 6 days after his death.

it had a population of 1,382,592 in 2006

All the signs say Nigeria is doing a major cover up, and mishandling everything from tracing to isolation and monitoring - but they're being lauded in the West for their wonderful containment efforts. [wtf?] Given their geographic distance from the rest of the Ebola-hit nations, and the fact that the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium is active in Lagos/Irrua as well as the known epicenter at Kenema Hospital in Sierra Leone near the borders of Guinea and Liberia....

Here's a bit I posted on another thread:

By Tuesday August 26, the cumulative number of reported cases was 3069, including 1552 deaths.

* We know cases are vastly under-reported - the UN estimates the actual total is around 12,000 at 3-4 times greater than reports show - but 10 times greater is more likely. [There's no one to diagnose and test: there are only 1-2 doctors per 100,000 people there and many are dead now; most people aren't even near a hospital and most of the few hospitals have been deserted by staff; the biggest charity clinic has 120 beds -the few other clinics have 10 or 12 beds- and it was overwhelmed on the first day it opened.]

...U.N. ....assumes that the actual number of cases in many hard-hit areas may be two to four times higher than currently reported. If that's accurate, it suggests there could be up to 12,000 cases already.


* The epidemic is out of control - it probably will be at least a year before anyone can even think about containment, and Ebola will continue spreading in West Africa.

* Reported cases jumped by almost 300% in less than a month between July 23 and August 26 - from 1,201 to 3,069. Increases actually will be exponential, but even at a flat 300% we're looking at 9,207 by the end of September - 27,621 by the end of October - 82,863 by end November - 248,589 by end December.... [Where on earth are they getting "20,000"?] NOTE:

In Geneva, the agency released a new plan for handling that aims to stop Ebola transmission in affected countries within six to nine months and prevent it from spreading internationally. ...The goal is to take "the heat out of this outbreak" within three months, he said. That will enable WHO to start using classic containment strategies to stop transmission altogether.



This is not a tragedy - it's a monumental FAIL.


Response to Ebola chaotic and inadequate

International response to the West African Ebola outbreak has been "chaotic and entirely inadequate," according to a statement issued Wednesday by the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders, which has been treating patients in affected countries for months.

Doctors Without Borders' newest Ebola treatment facility — a 120-bed facility in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia — is already overwhelmed. The group plans to construct three additional tents with space for 40 more beds.

Doctors Without Borders' guidelines were written for Ebola treatment centers with just 20 beds. "We have to constantly adapt" to address a crisis of this scale, Lindis Hurum, the group's emergency coordinator in Monrovia, said in a statement. "The numbers of patients we are seeing is unlike anything we've seen in previous outbreaks," Hurum said.

The new treatment center can slow the spread of the outbreak by isolating patients, preventing them from infecting friends and family. But overworked health workers have had to reduce the level of care they provide, according to Doctors Without Borders. They can no longer administer intravenous treatments, for example, which could limit doctors' ability to help dehydrated patients.

"It is simply unacceptable that, five months after the declaration of this Ebola outbreak, serious discussions are only starting now about international leadership and coordination," said Brice de le Vingne, director of operations at Doctors Without Borders. Referring to other countries that have the potential to help, he says, "They can do more, so why don't they?"

The news is starting to come out - this epidemic is MUCH worse than anyone realized. [Except Doctors Without Borders (MSF) who have been on the scene since it started, and called it back when everyone else was in denial.]

Now the WHO says cases could reach 20,000 within a few months - but some simple number crunching shows they're way too optimistic. We're probably looking at somewhere between 384,000 - 640,000 within six months, and between 24,576,000 - 40,960,000 cases over the next year.

Unless the epidemic is brought under control in West Africa immediately, it WILL spread around the world. Unfortunately, few nations are stepping up to the plate and committing needed resources - like actual medical staff, gloves, face masks and the like.

Ebola Mutating: Sustained H2H Transmission


Travel ban to Ebola affected countries, UK officials say

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office says all travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia should be avoided - unless essential, due to the Ebola outbreak.

British Airways has suspended flights to Sierra Leone and Liberia and other airlines are taking similar measures.

Such flight restrictions may make it increasingly hard for people working in these areas to leave, the FCO warns.

Meanwhile scientists have announced plans to trial an Ebola vaccine on UK volunteers this September.

Take a look at my post here on how the virus came to the city.

 


Regarding Zmapp:


Major pharmaceutical companies have shown little interest in developing effective treatments for diseases such as this. There’s no incentive for the commercial risks of research and companies naturally prefer to focus on diseases that can sustain large markets of wealthy regular users.

...

Let’s consider the most advanced drug: ZMapp, which is produced by Mapp Biopharmaceuticals and is the experimental treatment the fuss has been about. The incentive for developing ZMapp was clearly not its broad commercial potential. Instead, it is for developing capacity for biodefence.


How Western national interest drives Ebola drug development

So the "miracle cure" the press has been touting is the result of biodefense R&D.

If we see a glut of research begin in this field, we can only assume they plan on having "large markets of wealthy regular users."

Ebola hits Kaduna

Barley one week after the Federal government announced the containment of the Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, news reaching DailyPost indicates that a 19- year old student of Law at the Ahmadu Bello University has been diagnosed with the killer disease in Kaduna. The Public Relations Officer, Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, ABUTH, Bilyaminu Umar, who confirmed the case to Premium Times said the student was diagnosed at ABUTH, Shika, Zaria. “Yes, there was a case of a suspected Ebola patient. He is with the Faculty of Law, ABU, Zaria and will be placed on isolation. I am out of town, but I will confirm details on my return from the trip,” he said.

What do you think about the British Doc who is being released from Hospital?

Is it too early? Can the symptoms come back?

He only went into Hospital Aug 24th, so its only been 10 days! I would have preferred him staying at Hospital for a Month to be sure.

Two people have been quarantined in the northern Italian city Padua over fears they have the deadly Ebola virus.

A Nigerian and a person from Istria, a peninsula in northern Croatia, were suffering from a high fever and symptoms similar to those of the virus, Il Gazzettino reported.

They were placed in isolation at the Azienda Ospedaliera di Padova, a university hospital in Padua, in the Veneto region.


Italy too then but strange a potential case is from Croatia and turns up in Italy !!!

Also

The organisation said its care centres in Liberia and Sierra Leone are overcrowded with suspected Ebola patients. People continue to become ill and are dying in their villages and communities. In Sierra Leone, highly infectious bodies are rotting in the streets.
“The clock is ticking and Ebola is winning,” Liu told the UN member states. “The time for meetings and planning is over. It is now time to act. Every day of inaction means more deaths and the slow collapse of societies.”
“States with the required capacity have a political and humanitarian responsibility to come forward and offer a desperately needed, concrete response to the disaster unfolding in front of the world’s eyes.”

CDC: 'Window Is Closing' on Containing Ebola

At a press conference Tuesday, CDC director Tom Frieden warned that time is running out to contain West Africa’s Ebola outbreak.

Days after returning from West Africa, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thomas Frieden opened a press conference with a sobering admonition about the effort to contain the Ebola epidemic to West Africa: “the window is closing.”

Oh yeah. ....and more human hosts means more opportunities to mutate and evolve into a strain with real pandemic potential.
