    A well thought-out DOOM commentary on Ebola in the US:
    Where The Problem Is
    https://raconteurreport.blogspot.com...roblem-is.html

    In August 2014 (two years before the outbreak was over!), healthcare workers represented nearly 10 percent of cases and fatalities—significantly impairing the capacity to respond to an outbreak in an area already facing severe shortages. By 1 July 2015, the WHO reported that a total of 874 health workers had been infected, of which 509 had died. Link


    We are not being trained in their MSF protocols here, we're trained to CDC protocols.
    You know, the ones that got two nurses here infected within 21 days, despite doing everything the CDC thought was sufficient. Which is exactly how well Ebola spreads in the wild, with zero precautions
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Unprepared Uganda Deports Ebola Suspects as Virus Crosses from D.R. Congo

    Ugandan authorities this week repatriated the relatives of the two people known to have succumbed to the Ebola virus within its borders back to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Africa News reported this weekend.

    The move came after health officials in Uganda confirmed the presence of the deadly Ebola disease within its borders this week, which they linked to individuals from neighboring DRC.
    Citing the Ugandan health ministry, Reuters noted on Thursday:
    Authorities repatriated the relatives of two people who died of Ebola in Uganda back to the Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday, including a 3-year-old boy confirmed to be suffering from the disease.”
    “While the repatriation means there’s no confirmed case of Ebola in Uganda as of Thursday, three other suspected Ebola cases not related to the family remain in isolation,” Africa News added on Saturday.
    Once in the DRC, the victims are reportedly expected to receive treatment.
    “Hand washing facilities have been put in place, with washing materials like JIK (bleach) and soap. There’s no shaking of hands; people just wave at each other,” local journalist Ronald Kule told Reuters.
    “Uganda remains in Ebola response mode to follow up the 27 contacts (of the family),” the Ugandan health ministry revealed in a statement, according to Reuters.
    Red Cross personnel have reportedly embarked on an Ebola awareness drive in the Uganda-DRC border area following confirmed cases of the disease.
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Default It's not Ebola, realy, we swear!

    1) This is not confirmed. Just someone with "Ebola-like symptoms." Could turn out to be a nothingburger, like dozens of similar false alarms during past outbreaks. (O please, please, please, please...)

    2) Kericho Hospital in Kenya is some 400 miles from the Congo outbreak Hot Zone, clear the other side of Uganda. If, I repeat if, this case is confirmed as Ebola, that's a horrifyingly yuuuuuuuge leap outside all prior containment.

    3) Obviously, if confirmed, this result would indicate Ebola is now active in three countries.
    Stop me if you've heard this one before...

    4) FYI, Kericho, while quite distant from Congo, is only about 80 mi. from Nairobi (pop 3.4M), with an international airport, and direct regular flights on Air Kenya from their airport right to JFK Airport, NYFC. Flights can be had for about US $700-1400, which would challenge people living in mud huts, but if they're flying there, there are people there to pay for the seats, and it's a 15h hop, direct. That's how Duncan got from Liberia to Dallas. Cheers, Big Apple!

    5) Just a reminder that the method - the only method - they're currently using to screen for Ebola at airports and ports of entry is elevated temps, and as we've noted, and the WHO confirmed in print, publicly, last October, fever is completely absent in 50% of confirmed Ebola cases in the current outbreak.

    6) This shows the impact the mere possibility of this epidemic disease's spread is having on surrounding countries and populations. Kudos to local officials for taking this seriously, and taking due diligence precautions.


    If it's just one of 57 other tropical diseases with similar symptoms, and not Ebola, be happy. Be very happy. This time.
    If it's confirmed to be Ebola, sphincters will puckering in Nairobi, Geneva, D.C., and pretty much anyplace with a jet airport, not to mention the next 20 closest countries to the outbreak. Good times all around.

    Either way, the underlying truth remains: this thing is leaking out, and there's probably going to be a further spread, to a horrible likelihood.

    We may know definitively which way this breaks within the day, and certainly within 48-72 hours.

    So, how are you doing on your food and water stockpile, sanitary accomodations, concertina rolls, and 12 ga. buckshot supplies?
    Just curious.

    For even more great news, Nairobi is a hub for intra-African flights as well as to the European continent and to the Indian subcontinent as well. There is a very large Indian population in Nairobi with close ties to India.

    Coming home this evening, I saw an aftrican woman walking along the highway, a few miles form two towns...had the skirt, the hair bundle, black as a somalian.......cental illinois. Champaign to be exact. I thought of the congo.......heads up, the distribution is quite wide and thorough.
    Educate others to grow our base of informed citizens, it's tyranny. Spread the Gospel.

    Prepare wisely individually. An army runs on it's stomach.

    Network with those who prepare wisely and take advantage of the strength in numbers and the economy of scale.

    Then, when the curtains come down and the truth is evident to an informed citizenry, we unite and fight the new world order.
