Nigerian authorities on Monday confirmed a second case of Ebola in Africa's most populous country, an alarming setback…

…test samples are pending for three other people who had shown symptoms of Ebola, and …authorities are trying to trace and quarantine others.

…The emergence of a second case raises serious concerns about the infection control practices in Nigeria, and also raise the specter that more cases could emerge.

…Nigerian authorities said a total of 70 people are under surveillance and that they hoped to have eight people in quarantine by the end of Monday in an isolation ward in Lagos.


Nigeria Confirms Doctor as 2nd Ebola Case

This one is real. Not maybe, suspected or sensationalized. Real. It means Ebola is loose in an international hub city of 21 million people who do not even have access to public bathrooms. Ebola spreads through exposure to bodily fluids like poop and pee. You do the math.

For a while, I've been thinking Nigeria has been covering up Ebola cases. Not because of Sawyer, but because Nigeria's Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital is part of the "Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium" that involves the US Army's Bio-War research. Just like Kenema Hospital, in the admitted epicenter of the long-ignored epidemic in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. …..Almost from the getgo, the Sawyer story was played to blame Sawyer for bringing Ebola to Nigeria, and set the stage for acknowledging the epidemic there too. So now the "Ebola in Nigeria" story is breaking. I'm thinkin' Lagos has way more cases than just 1 doctor and a couple suspected. ...and the blame-laying begins by targeting immigrants. Starting with storming the churches. 'Cuz no way, ever, is anyone about to admit Nigeria's epidemic is somehow linked to the US Army's Bio-War research, or that it might have started in Nigeria's Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital.



Ebola: Nigeria places 69 people on surveillance, quarantines 2 others

….The minister said health officials are “still searching” for others who might have had contact with the late Mr. Sawyer; including colleagues and those who flew with him. He listed those on surveillance to include Mr. Sawyer’s colleagues who travelled to Calabar, Cross River State and hospital staff who treated him before his death.


About the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium

The Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium was established in 2010 as a result of several multi-year grants and contracts awarded to Tulane University by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), …..The Consortium is a collaboration between …..the Kenema Government Hospital (Sierra Leone), the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital (Nigeria) and various other partners in West Africa. More information is available at www.vhfc.org .


The VHFC is continuing its Sierra Leone research to address Lassa fever, Ebola fever and other severe, high-mortality tropical diseases in West Africa.


Nigeria: Lagos Storm Synagogue Church for Victims

Lagos — In continuation of efforts to prevent spread of the Ebola Virus disease in the country, a Federal and Lagos State Health Delegation has visited the General Overseer of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Joshua, to explore ways to ensure members of the congregation do not include residents or people from the affected countries.


Ebola: Nigeria’s 1,479 illegal borders may spread virus

...Saturday PUNCH’s investigations revealed that the porosity of Nigerian land borders exposed the country to the risk of the deadly disease.

At the last count, there are about 1,479 illegal routes into Nigeria through which smugglers, undocumented immigrants and terrorists have been infiltrating the country.

.....Nigeria, being a hub of economic activities in the West African sub-region, is an attractive destination for illegal migrants from Chad, Mali, Niger, Cameroun, Togo, Benin Republic and other countries.

Considering what Shell did to Nigeria, it comes as no surprise that they have Ebola, they literally live in the dumps of their own feces. Shell has yet to clean up their mess.

Remember - Ebola has never been seen before in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia or Nigeria. ...So why conduct research on Ebola in these nations?

Ooops.

Troubling, considering that this outbreak has lasted longer than any others before it and killed so many already. Usually the outbreaks didn't go beyond a village or two. Now we have a large city involved, with a higher possibility of international travel by infected people that are not showing symptoms.
Eek.

Right. This one's different in a lot of ways - it's a new sub-clade of Zaire Ebola (in West Africa ?!?) - other outbreaks have been in remote, isolated villages and easy to contain (looks like this one started out with several epicenters - and a HUGE geographic spread).

Could it be that somebody made too many assumptions?

I posted this story in your old thread as I didn't want to start a new Thread on it. You didn't reply there unfortunately.

I said in that one, I wonder who he's been in touch with over the last 4 days and where he's been??

Thank you. Sorry - I didn't see your post - too much going on - just looked for, and found it. [But it isn't in my "replies" box ...? I kind of rely on that, but even with those links, can't always keep up.] Anyway, would have jumped all over it if I had seen it - been running multiple searches daily for news of Ebola in Nigeria for quite a while now. Really worried no one was talking...

...Your question - "I wonder who he's been in touch with over the last 4 days and where he's been??"

They quarantined the hospital immediately, so he probably wasn't treating patients. But who knows? ...Still, the 30,000 of Sawyer's other direct and indirect contacts who have NOT been traced are a much greater worry. We're just starting to see the tip of the iceberg.

...Plus, there's a very good possibility Ebola was in Nigeria before Sawyer got there - they're already blaming "the immigrants" but we need to look a lot more closely at the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital. imho






PS. Next time you find something really important like that, start a thread. Say what's important about it and why it's important. People need to know.
S&

And guess what Sofi, the so call vaccine is now on hold after Monsanto and the Defense department has invested about 148 millions on it

We most wonder why? perhaps is not enough infected people? or the people been infected is not from more affluent countries like UK and the US?

The pieces in the chess board are starting to fall in the right places.

Do you have any proof that the US military started this or just correlation?

It does look very suspicious.

From the medical perspective, I don't think a vaccine is the way to go - immune support looks like the best focus.

But yes, The pieces in the chess board are starting to fall in the right places.

The vaccine TKM-Ebola is already in the final stages for testing, but something is going on after the so call serum ZMapp, supposedly was used first and is very promising.

Conflict of interest?

I haven't said the US military started this - just reviewed the facts, and highlighted the various possibilities - including the risk of accidents as well as the real risk that some idiot might freak out about Guinea's contract with China, and think the best way to get China out of Guinea's Simandou iron ore field would be to seed an Ebola epidemic. Whilst mistakenly assuming it could be controlled just like all the other Ebola outbreaks. And whilst also mistakenly assuming that engineered sub-clade viruses are somehow protected from mutating further in the wild.

....But ya gotta admit the circumstantial evidence is pretty bloody strong. ...Motive, means and opportunity.

This is all so unsettling to read, but at the same time, it's a must-read.
Do you happen to know where the groundbreaking serum was produced?

The usual monopoly game - just now, Intellectual Property is more valuable than physical property.

BUT - we DO have real problems, and Ebola is not the only thing poised to go pandemic. Lots of these guys really do care - they're sweating, and trying hard. We have to be very careful not to throw babies out with the bathwater.

I was just wondering if filoviruses can recombine.

I bet they can with government assistance.

Thanks. ...No, I don't know - marg might have the info at hand. [I'm trying to get to where I can log out - the dishes and vacuuming can wait a while longer but my dogs really need a walk.] lol - had to do it, here ya go - and note the ref to biodefense:


Mapp Biopharmaceutical was founded in 2003 to develop novel pharmaceuticals for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, focusing on unmet needs in global health and biodefense.

As Mapp's products transition to clinical evaluation, licenses are transferred to Mapp's commercialization partner, LeafBio.

The "serum is from a home base pharma in California


The drug was developed by the biotech firm Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., which is based in San Diego. The patients were told that this treatment had never been tried before in a human being but had shown promise in small experiments with monkeys

According to company documents, four monkeys infected with Ebola survived after being given the therapy within 24 hours after infection. Two of four other monkeys that started therapy within 48 hours after infection also survived. One monkey that was not treated died within five days of exposure to the virus.

Brantly and Writebol were aware of the risk of taking a new, little understood treatment and gave informed consent, according to two sources familiar with the care of the missionary workers. In the monkeys, the experimental serum had been given within 48 hours of infection. Brantly didn't receive it until he'd been sick for nine days.
