Korean Air suspends Kenya flights over Ebola – cuts all ties with African continent

August 2014AFRICA - Korean Air Lines Co. is suspending flights to and from Kenya in what it says is a measure to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus. The South Korean flag carrier said on Thursday it would stop operating flights between the southern city of Incheon and Nairobi from August 20. The carrier flies to Nairobi, which is its only destination in Africa, three times a week and did not say when it would resume its service. Ebola has not been detected in Kenya yet during this most recent outbreak, the worst recorded. The outbreak has killed more than 1,000 people since the start of the year in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Nigeria last month became the fourth West African country affected. Dubai carrier Emirates was the first major international airline to impose a ban in response to the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa by suspending flights to Guinea on August 2. News of the move came after Liberia received the last known doses of the experimental drug ZMapp, to be administered to a small number of patients infected with the virus. The boxes containing the drug were brought to Liberia on board a flight from the US, carried personally by Liberian Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan.
 Dr Moses Massaquoi, who helped the Liberian government acquire the doses of ZMapp, said there was enough of the drug to treat three people, one more than the government had stated earlier. Massaquoi also said he was holding talks with the Canadian maker of another experimental Ebola drug. The Canadian government has promised to donate 800 to 1,000 doses of its untested Ebola vaccine to the World Health Organization (WHO). But manufacturer Tekmira Pharmaceuticals on Wednesday said further trials were required before it could make the treatment available, despite this week’s assurances by the WHO that it was ethical to use untested treatments to fight the outbreak. The developments came as Nigeria announced its number of confirmed Ebola cases had risen by one to 11. The figure included three deaths and eight people who were being treated at a special isolation unit set up in Lagos, Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said. Nigeria has not recorded a case outside Lagos but there were fears that a nurse who was infected in the city may have carried the virus to the key eastern city of Enugu. –Al Jazeera

    ALL FLIGHTS ARRIVING AND LEAVING AFRICA, AT ANY POINT MUST BE STOPPED, CANCELLED COMPLETELY UNTIL THE EBOLA VIRUS IS UNDER CONTROL. AS LONG AS THE PLANES ARE COMING AND GOING, THE WORLD WILL BE INFECTED. SEE SENSE PEOPLE. AFRICA MUST BE IN LOCKDOWN OR THE WORLD WILL HAVE A DEATH SENTENCE, SIMPLE AS THAT.

      It may be too late to contain the virus, but I support the thought to isolate Africa.
      I am of the mind that that this virus is part of a devised depopulation plan, to include others. yes, there are people in the world who believe it is overly populated, who are using up the earths resources, causing it to be out of balance.

        Ebola is airborne, it has a map, it travels. Its a ‘natural selection process’.

        I could be wrong but I ve been noticing for a long time. Those of us who get all scared-up are those of us not taking care of ‘real’ business.

        We all own ‘the inner gauge’. Time to listen and move along I’d add.

        Walking the talk so to speak.

        I would love to disagree but you’re probably right. I’m not big on the whole depopulation theory but this Ebola virus seems like a pretty good candidate for an epidemic. There’s definitely too many of us and not enough resources to support everyone.

        Guess we will just have to wait and see what the future brings, but from everything I’ve read over the past few years, things don’t seem too bright.

        MERS wasn’t very serious. Many more have died from this virus.

        I agree with the idea of blocking all travel from Africa. Anyone who turns up illegaly should be isolated, quaranteened and returned and permanently banned from Europe/US/where they show up.

        “God gave the Earth into the hands of the wicked”

        Jews wrote the OT and NT as a scam. I don’t care what your invisible sky pixie tells you.
