Aug 16 TEP radio: “There is no end in sight to this virus” – No end in sight to Ebola outbreak, WHO official says – USA Today

August 2014AFRICA - (Aug 20th) – There is no end in sight to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, according to the head of the World Health Organization. “No one is talking about an early end to the outbreak,” writes Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, in today’s New England Journal of Medicine. She says the outbreak is likely to last “many more months.” Chan blames the size and severity of the outbreak – which has killed 1,350 people – on poverty. At least 2,473 people have been diagnosed with the virus. “The hardest-hit countries – Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone – are among the poorest in the world,” Chan writes. “They have only recently emerged from years of conflict and civil war that have left their health systems largely destroyed or severely disabled and, in some areas, left a generation of children without education.” Ebola is one of a half-dozen major disease outbreaks recently caused by war or the devastation left behind by conflict, says Peter Hotez, president of the Sabin Vaccine Institute and founding dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. In Syria, for example, health workers have diagnosed 36 cases of polio since the beginning of the civil war. In Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, “there is no confidence in government or its ability to respond,” Hotez says. “This is all a consequence of public health breakdown.” In West Africa, only one or two doctors are available for every 100,000 people, Chan writes, and “even hospital capacity for infection control is virtually non-existent.” Nearly 160 health workers have been infected, and 80 have died, Chan writes.
Poverty also has driven the spread of the Ebola virus by forcing people to cross borders to find work. The intersection of these three countries is the “designated hot zone,” she writes. In Guinea, about 60% of cases are linked to burial practices, in which family members wash the bodies of the dead, Chan writes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has sent workers to West Africa to help identify cases and trace their contacts, so exposed people can be closely monitored. Lack of education has amplified fear of the disease, leading some people to flee treatment centers or hide infected family members, which allows the disease to spread, Chan writes. That’s made the greatest risk of infection come not from people diagnosed with Ebola but from “delayed detection and isolation,” CDC Director Thomas Frieden writes in an accompanying editorial.
Every day that disease transmission remains uncontrolled, the likelihood of spread to unaffected countries increases,” he writes. “If a single case is missed … another chain of transmission can start.” Rumors spread quickly, allowing some people to succumb to alleged miracle cures. Chan notes that at least two Nigerians died after drinking saltwater, which was said to protect them from Ebola. Beyond combating the outbreak, Frieden says, the United States should help “put systems in place to prevent another one.” The United States joined the WHO in launching the Global Health Security Agenda, which aims to help countries prevent outbreaks, as well as detect them and respond quickly. The plan addresses threats from new viruses, such as bird flu, as well as bioterrorism. Hospitals in the USA are far better prepared than those in West Africa to contain an Ebola infection, Hotez says. Though an infected patient could travel to the USA on a plane, Hotez says, routine infection control practices would not allow the disease to spread widely. –USA Today

    I am under the belief still, that this is a depopulation operation of the new world order and some of you may think that I’m paranoid, but when words like those I wrote comes from the mouth of a former US secretary of State, I can’t be wrong………

    I am reading Richard Preston’s “The demon in the freezer”. It is a true story about Anthrax, Small Pox and Ebola. Concerning Small Pox. There were so many people/nations involved to keep it in control and worked on Small Pox’ s eradication. On the outside it sure seems like they had our best interest in mind. How Ebola is currently being handled sure opens a lot of questions. If they were able to deal with a “Drama virus” (Small Pox) back then, how much more should they be able to do that now??? It is 2014, technology has gone crazy, and there are some smart brains out there. I am quite baffled by the “sleepiness” and “frozen state” of the nations. Either it is not Ebola; or it is fake info (including numbers, pictures, etc.); maybe scare tactics to open the door for something bigger planned (you fill in the many possibilities); depopulation could be a reason.

    I don’t know! The only thing I am very certain of is that my Heavenly Father is in control and HIS word gives us a glimpse what is coming to a city near you.
    Luke 21:11
    “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”

    Please get prepared – spiritually first (Jesus IS the only way) and then make earthly preparations (gain knowledge in the field of medicinal herbs, Vitamin C, Colloidal Silver, food and water, maybe grow a garden and have some chickens).

    Be encouraged and read God’s word (it will give you HIS peace in these uncertain times).

    Dennis I think your spot on. Like many of the battles raging on in the Middle East, and Russian conflict. I would be willing to believe the NWO has the strings on these issues too. The NWO puppet masters, are in control now. If we see enough problems, they will claim to fix it, and cut the strings from their puppets creating the conflict. All will appear to be good, and people will lose all freedom.
