Now this is what I've been chatting about on other Threads... although I was chatting about illegals' getting to Italy with the virus.

Turns out a Nigerian Woman who Traveled to Nigeria recently has returned home and become very sick.


ROME:

Rome -- A suspected case of Ebola was discovered and isolated in Italy's central region of Marche on Tuesday, authorities said.

According to regional Health councillor Almerino Mezzolani, an unidentified 40-year-old woman was hospitalized and isolated at the infectious diseases' department of the main regional hospital in Ancona and was being treated, after showing suspected symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus.

The woman, a foreign regular migrant long living in the town of Civitanova Marche, had recently travelled to Nigeria, where she might have been infected with the virus, the councillor added.

Regional health authorities were gathering all information available on Tuesday, and have meanwhile implemented the emergency procedures necessary to the case.

That is the whole story on this case at the moment.

I hope she hasn't got it because if she has, that means it could well be out in Italy as there were others on the Plane! And 'ROME' of all places.

Why is it always a 'Nigerian' becoming ill after going back home and what are they doing when they know that this Virus is spreading back home??? Why fly home??

I don't understand why all Flights hav'nt been stopped yet. Some Travel was banned a few weeks ago but the ban has already been lifted. What is going on?? People want this to get worse than it already is...

My mother and I were discussing Ebola just yesterday. We both think it will come to the US with disastrous consequences.

With our borders wide open and the silly notion that "profiling" is racially based rather than a sensible precaution, when it comes to checking for anything, even disease we are bound to have it here.

Mom says if she gets it she will die regardless of the health care here because of her advanced age. We were discussing the need to be able to "hunker down" during an epidemic and if we should be making plans for it.

The virus that is hospitalizing children in the US is said to be a direct result of our open borders and children from South American spreading the illness. Ebola I am certain will arrive the same way, because of our extreme laxity at the borders.

If you think I'm being ridiculous, I caught a severe respiratory illness on an airplane from a child from South America who sat across the aisle from me coughing, sneezing and with the color of a child with a high fever. I was hospitalized for a week because of it and was sick for the next 2 months. The airline did nothing to keep this extremely ill and highly contagious child off the airplane. I know the child was from South America because my brother-in-law is from there and I knew enough to know they were not from Mexico.

The airlines won't be screening for Ebola, and if a patient sits next to you, heaven help you if they sneeze and you will be within range of catching it that way as will the people in front of, behind and to the side of them. Even though it is not "technically" airborne.

I agree 'borders' are definately weak at the moment and have been for ages, I just hope that Steel Fence goes up on the French Border real soon.

If this case in Italy is confirmed, you can bet there will be others....

I don't know if this has been asked before..but WHY are people still able to travel to areas known for large outbreaks? Why don't they restrict air travel? No one in, No one out. Seems really simple..

I and many others have been asking the same questions.

In reality, there shouldn't be any cases outside 'Africa' but it seems we aren't living in Reality.

Because it is politically incorrect.

The world is so obsessed with fairness and being politically correct
that restricting anyone for any reason from anything just because of where they are from
(especially if they are from a basically [people of color] "monoracial" country)
EVEN WHEN LIVES ARE AT RISK
has become unacceptable.


That is why.

It is the doctrine of socialism and communism that all must be equal and fair for everyone, regardless of if it is sensible or not, regardless of the consequences.The world leaders right now are enamored with and strongly support socialism/communism/progressivism which all hold tightly that notion.

Everyone go get some Sovereign Silver. Its the only thing I know of that can destroy the cell wall of the Ebola virus. It can be used topically but especially internally as a spray. Keep yourselves safe out there.

Yeah but that doesn't do well for the profits of the various corporations that would undoubtedly lose out if such measures were enforced.

They are looking at it the wrong way aren't they (the airlines, etc)

Once the entire world starts dying at a rate of close to 90% in 3rd world countries, and hopefully only 50% in first world countries, they will lose a lot of customers.

Actually, I think the people who are for depopulation aren't realizing the long term consequences of letting it spread, which is what I think is happening, it is being allowed to spread -
eventually there will be no one to keep electricity, water going, no more health care workers, no more heat producers, and the world will by necessity return to near cave man days, until the population increases enough
for the municipals to return.
With books barely in print anymore, and the need to burn them for fuel, humans will be forced to do a restart.

But the depopulationists are overcome with joy at the thought, and there are many many who still believe the earth is overpopulated and needs to be depopulated, they are just ignorant of the consequences.

The elite will have to then plow the fields themselves, care for animals themselves, make their own clothes, etc just to survive, so even the elite are fooling themselves if they think they can survive unscathed.

My mother and I think it will come to the US and there will be a vaccine, however at first only the young will be allowed to get the vaccine and those who care for the young, to ensure survival, and of course the politicians and elite of all ages will get the vaccine. We both see the elderly being the last to be allowed the vaccine as a cost saving measure for the government as our country is aging so fast, if the elderly are allowed to die there will be a lot of money saved in social security, medicare, health care, pensions. So even if there is not a shortage of the vaccine, we will be told there is in order to get rid of as many elderly as possible.

So it may be that with the entire industrialized world having an aging "problem" that allowing Ebola to spread, then giving the vaccine only to the young and those who care for the young, and politicians and the elite of course - that it may be a tactic on the part of TPTB to even out the population and decrease the number of elderly and fringe members of society who use up resources.

Simple, that would be considered racist. In fact, you're racist for suggesting it.

Being VERY ignorant about this Virus, that's all I know.

Even if they are in their underground bunkers already, the Virus will still be alive when they eventually venture outside.

But seriously, ALL Travel to West Africa should be halted at this time. Especially to those Country's affected.

I just hope this case turns out to be a false alarm because 'Rome' is a big City with many Tourists and even one person contracting it could have already bought here to the UK.

They would need to control the ones that remained since with our acquired knowledge it would take us a lot less time to repopulate the planet.

The virus would be dead when they venture outside - but so would most of the rest of the world if Ebola goes unchecked at it's current rate. Life would be quite hard for the coddled and spoiled elite who hide out, and they would probably die rapidly from not being able to survive the harsh conditions.

However, I really hope that it does not spread to Italy, UK, etc, etc, but fear it most likely will

I also hope that mass vaccine production is actually underway and mass production of the "cure" is underway it would have to be done secretly or demand would soon overrun production which would be bad because only when there is enough vaccine or "cure" to help nearly everyone in a country would there be any hope of stopping it.

Ok. I guess I am not paying attention properly.

The Virus can't live over a certain period of time (even on dead people laying in the street).

Anyway, I think I'm getting a bit over-exagerated..... been watching too much 'The Walking Dead' Series.

Since people would be spread across the globe, the survivors, with no means of transportation, no means of communication. Acquired knowledge will be basically useless for hundreds if not thousands of years, and would be rebuilt nearly from scratch as it becomes part of folklore and oral tradition.

Yes, we would repopulate, but we would start at the level of just out of the caves and have to rebuild from there. Books will disintegrate, there would be no way to get to information stored on "hard drives" without electricity, and eventually people would not even remember what computers were for or even if information was there or how to retrieve it. Life will be quite harsh and back to super low tech agricultural for at least a thousand years.

That would be the ultimate legacy of Ebola left unchecked
at its current rate

and with the current policies in effect
that refuse to "profile" even for disease carriers.

If we had a 90% reduction then the uk would still have 6 million people the usa would still have 31 and a half million.
Folk lore has nothing to do with it people would just read books and we would have the acquired knowledge of the 10% .

We could still have all the convenience of modern life very quickly probably in less time than a generation.
Since we will not have to reinvent the wheel for every problem.

I really doubt the convenience of modern life would return quickly. There just won't be enough people to maintain the infrastructure, which will crumble due to lack of enough people to repair them. I think things would be a great deal worse than you can even imagine.

Look at the Dark Ages, the plague plunged the world into the Dark Ages which lasted hundreds of years, during which time a lot of advancements were lost, only to later be rediscovered.

It would take several generations at best to recover from the loss of an average of 75% of the worlds population.

Also, mortality rates would be extremely high after the epidemic ended due to high losses of health care workers, and workers who make antibiotics, vaccines, medicines, medical machinery.

Ebola left unchecked will leave at best a miserable existence for the survivors for several generations to come.

Also, out of necessity, people will use more polluting fuels, wood, coal due to lack of electricity - because it takes massive numbers of people to run and maintain electricity. So air pollution will be horrid for years and years. Also, with no sewers also (not enough people to run and maintain them - also no enough people to run and maintain water systems), people will start to leave excrement all over like they did not so long ago, throwing excrement into the streets. Causing more pollution and more disease.

It takes more than 25% of the worlds population (an average world wide survival rate) just to run and maintain the infrastructure needed to have even the basics of civilization world wide, even just industrialized nations only. Electricity, gas, coal, water, sewer, health care, transportation of food, clothing production, shoe production, furniture production, building repair (roofs, paint, etc), information sharing (TV, internet, phone), road maintenance, transportation production and maintenance/repair, even our current food production methods would fail quickly as they rely on mega farms and modern transportation and fuel.

All of these activities are currently built and designed to be maintained, by more than 25% of the world's population.

But they will be busy farming just to feed themselves and have no time to rebuild infrastructure.
Medicine will return to the days of collecting herbs because of the huge numbers of people required to maintain our modern medical system. Modern life definitely would not return to the current level for the immediate survivors.

Ebola left unchecked as it is will decimate civilization.

I think we are getting ahead of ourselves.

This isn't a Thread on 'Survival'.



This 'Suspected' case in Rome may turn out to be nothing.

I think the Doomsday Scenario is a long way off.
