WHO warns Ebola out of control in Democratic Republic of Congo: deaths rise to 31

September 13, 2012CONGO - An Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo risks spreading to major towns if not brought under control soon, the World Health Organization said on Thursday. The death toll has more than doubled since last week to 31, including five health workers dying from the contagious virus for which there is no known treatment. Ebola causes massive bleeding and kills up to 90 percent of its victims. “The epidemic is not under control. On the contrary, the situation is very, very serious,” Eugene Kabambi, a WHO spokesman in Congo’s capital Kinshasa told Reuters by telephone. “If nothing is done now, the disease will reach other places, and even major towns will be threatened,” he said. The disease has so far struck in the towns of Isiro and Viadana in Orientale province in the north east. In August, 16 people in neighboring Uganda died of the disease, although health experts said the two epidemics are not connected and have blamed the Congolese outbreak on villagers eating contaminated meat in the forests which cover the region. –Terra

    As a physician, working in Asia for many years, we saw many cases of denge, which causes a type of hemorrhagic fever. We successfully treated it by giving high doses of Vitamin C, 50 grams, IV per day until platelets returned to 150. Now, mechanism is that in Denge, the virus latches on to the platelets or antibodies are produced which latch on the platelets and it causes platelet destruction, which in turn eliminates the ability to clot blood. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, it in turn, latches on to the virus antigen or the antibody (actually any free radical) and it stops its action. We found that 50 grams of IV vitamin C will return the platelets back to 150 in 3 to 4 days. Original research and work done by Dr Klenner, he has many papers, a summary paper is available by searching Klenner Vitamin C IV, 1971, orthomolecular medicine

    Thank you

    When epidemics or contamination occur, why oh why dont the WHO have a strategy in place to prevent air travel for returning home folks, where everyone on the plane gets contaminated and everyone each of them come in contact with gets it. Pull your damned socks up and start stopping spread. If you dont have a strategy to stop epidemics, call me.

    Once this hits a major city, it will be all over the world in short order.

    That is very interesting Tan. Is this a new outbreak or part of the one reported a few weeks/month back? I noted while reading up on a prior outbreak that it seems they managed to control it within a large population. However the potential for a widespread outbreak is not a happy thought.
