    Quote Ebola Made By Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

    By Dr. Cyril Broderick
    Professor of Plant Pathology
    The Liberian Observer
    10-20-14

    Are bio weapons being tested on Africans. Reports have linked the Ebola virus outbreak to an attempt to reduce Africa’s population. Liberia happens to be the continents' fastest growing population.
    Dear World Citizens...

    I have read a number of articles from your Internet outreach as well as articles from other sources about the casualties in Liberia and other West African countries about the human devastation caused by the Ebola virus.

    About a week ago, I read an article published in the Internet news summary publication of the Friends of Liberia that said that there was an agreement that the initiation of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was due to the contact of a two-year old child with bats that had flown in from the Congo. That report made me disconcerted with the reporting about Ebola, and it stimulated a response to the “Friends of Liberia,” saying that African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated.

    A response from Dr. Verlon Stone said that the article was not theirs, and that “Friends of Liberia” was simply providing a service. He then asked if he could publish my letter in their Internet forum. I gave my permission, but I have not seen it published. Because of the widespread loss of life, fear, physiological trauma, and despair among Liberians and other West African citizens, it is incumbent that I make a contribution to the resolution of this devastating situation, which may continue to recur, if it is not properly and adequately confronted. I will address the situation in five (5) points:

    1. EBOLA IS A GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISM (GMO)

    Horowitz (1998) was deliberate and unambiguous when he explained the threat of new diseases in his text, Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola - Nature, Accident or Intentional. In his interview with Dr. Robert Strecker in Chapter 7, the discussion, in the early 1970s, made it obvious that the war was between countries that hosted the KGB and the CIA, and the ‘manufacture’ of ‘AIDS-Like Viruses’ was clearly directed at the other. In passing during the Interview, mention was made of Fort Detrick, “the Ebola Building,” and ‘a lot of problems with strange illnesses’ in “Frederick [Maryland].”

    By Chapter 12 in his text, he had confirmed the existence of an American Military-Medical-Industry that conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of “black Africans overseas.” The book is an excellent text, and all leaders plus anyone who has interest in science, health, people, and intrigue should study it. I am amazed that African leaders are making no acknowledgements or reference to these documents.

    2. EBOLA HAS A TERRIBLE HISTORY, AND TESTING HAS BEEN SECRETLY TAKING PLACE IN AFRICA

    I am now reading The Hot Zone, a novel, by Richard Preston (copyrighted 1989 and 1994); it is heart-rending. The prolific and prominent writer, Steven King, is quoted as saying that the book is “One of the most horrifying things I have ever read. What a remarkable piece of work.” As a New York Times bestseller, The Hot Zone is presented as “A terrifying true story.”

    Terrifying, yes, because the pathological description of what was found in animals killed by the Ebola virus is what the virus has been doing to citizens of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia in its most recent outbreak: Ebola virus destroys peoples’ internal organs and the body deteriorates rapidly after death. It softens and the tissues turn into jelly, even if it is refrigerated to keep it cold. Spontaneous liquefaction is what happens to the body of people killed by the Ebola virus!

    The author noted in Point 1, Dr. Horowitz, chides The Hot Zone for writing to be politically correct; I understand because his book makes every effort to be very factual. The 1976 Ebola incident in Zaire, during President Mobutu Sese Seko, was the introduction of the GMO Ebola to Africa.

    3. SITES AROUND AFRICA, AND IN WEST AFRICA, HAVE OVER THE YEARS BEEN SET UP FOR TESTING EMERGING DISEASES, ESPECIALLY EBOLA

    The World Health Organization (WHO) and several other UN Agencies have been implicated in selecting and enticing African countries to participate in the testing events, promoting vaccinations, but pursuing various testing regiments. The August 2, 2014 article, West Africa: What are US Biological Warfare Researchers Doing in the Ebola Zone? by Jon Rappoport of Global Research pinpoints the problem that is facing African governments.

    Obvious in this and other reports are, among others:

    (a) The US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), a well-known centre for bio-war research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland;

    (b) Tulane University, in New Orleans, USA, winner of research grants, including a grant of more than $7 million the National Institute of Health (NIH) to fund research with the Lassa viral hemorrhagic fever;

    (c) the US Center for Disease Control (CDC);

    (d) Doctors Without Borders (also known by its French name, Medicins Sans Frontiers);

    (e) Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company;

    (f) The UK’s GlaxoSmithKline; and

    (g) the Kenema Government Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone.

    Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus.

    Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

    The only relevant positive and ethical olive-branch seen in all of my reading is that Theguardian.com reported, “The US government funding of Ebola trials on healthy humans comes amid warnings by top scientists in Harvard and Yale that such virus experiments risk triggering a worldwide pandemic.” That threat still persists.

    4. THE NEED FOR LEGAL ACTION TO OBTAIN REDRESS FOR DAMAGES INCURRED DUE TO THE PERPETUATION OF INJUSTICE IN THE DEATH, INJURY AND TRAUMA IMPOSED ON LIBERIANS AND OTHER AFRICANS BY THE EBOLA AND OTHER DISEASE AGENTS.

    The U. S., Canada, France, and the U. K. are all implicated in the detestable and devilish deeds that these Ebola tests are. There is the need to pursue criminal and civil redress for damages, and African countries and people should secure legal representation to seek damages from these countries, some corporations, and the United Nations. Evidence seems abundant against Tulane University, and suits should start there. Yoichi Shimatsu’s article, The Ebola Breakout Coincided with UN Vaccine Campaigns, as published on August 18, 2014, in the Liberty Beacon.

    5. AFRICAN LEADERS AND AFRICAN COUNTRIES NEED TO TAKE THE LEAD IN DEFENDING BABIES, CHILDREN, AFRICAN WOMEN, AFRICAN MEN, AND THE ELDERLY. THESE CITIZENS DO NOT DESERVE TO BE USED AS GUINEA PIGS!

    Africa must not relegate the Continent to become the locality for disposal and the deposition of hazardous chemicals, dangerous drugs, and chemical or biological agents of emerging diseases. There is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.

    It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others? Wherever they exist, it is time to terminate them. If any other sites exist, it is advisable to follow the delayed but essential step: Sierra Leone closed the US bioweapons lab and stopped Tulane University for further testing.

    The world must be alarmed. All Africans, Americans, Europeans, Middle Easterners, Asians, and people from every conclave on Earth should be astonished. African people, notably citizens more particularly of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are victimized and are dying every day. Listen to the people who distrust the hospitals, who cannot shake hands, hug their relatives and friends. Innocent people are dying, and they need our help. The countries are poor and cannot afford the whole lot of personal protection equipment (PPE) that the situation requires. The threat is real, and it is larger than a few African countries.

    The challenge is global, and we request assistance from everywhere, including China, Japan, Australia, India, Germany, Italy, and even kind-hearted people in the U.S., France, the U.K., Russia, Korea, Saudi Arabia, and anywhere else whose desire is to help. The situation is bleaker than we on the outside can imagine, and we must provide assistance however we can.

    To ensure a future that has less of this kind of drama, it is important that we now demand that our leaders and governments be honest, transparent, fair, and productively engaged. They must answer to the people. Please stand up to stop Ebola testing and the spread of this dastardly disease.

    Thank you very much.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Cyril E. Broderick, Sr.

    A More Dangerous Strain

    The head of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota – Dr. Michael Osterholm – is a prominent public health scientist and a nationally recognized biosecurity expert.

    Dr. Osterholm just gave a talk shown on C-Span explaining that a top Ebola virologist – the Head of Special Pathogens at Canada’s health agency, Gary Kobinger – has found that the current strain of Ebola appears to be much worse than any strain seen before … and that the current virus may be more likely to spread through aerosols than strains which scientists have previously encountered.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    http://www.globalresearch.ca/ebola-d...-force/5403765


    According to the Washington Post [1], the World Health Organization has announced a program which would round up Ebola victims across Liberia and herd them into “Ebola death camps” in order to isolate them from their families.

    Although they aren’t called “Ebola death camps” — the sweet-sounding public name for the facilities is “community care centers” — their purpose is “to move infected people out of their homes and into ad hoc centers that will provide rudimentary care,” says the Post.

    Exclamation Re: Haemorrhagic fever / Ebola outbreaks have been reported - accident, natural or bio-weapon?

    Summary from the previous page

    - Ebola Zaire has been demonstrated by UK government scientists to be aerosolized - http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...l=1#post891388

    - Governments in Europe ordering ANTI-VIRAL pills, oral pills, 14 days able to stop Ebola even in later stage infections

    - Governments have KNOWN about the aerosol and respiratory infection ability of Ebola and have hidden that data (data shown on a NIH - 'US national institutes of health' file abstract such has been proven to be aerosolized and able to exist on surfaces for 21 days easily, and up to 50 days.)

    - Ebola survivors could make for prime potential terrorists if radicalized; they could conceivably SPRAY an aerosol of ebola and be IMMUNE to that strain.. ALL governments know that and that is WHY there is a radio silence in MSM currently..

    Reading the research report from the scientists who have demonstrated aerosolized Ebola is an eye opener.. It is technical but there is sufficient information to put a cold chill down anyone's back..

    UPDATE - US agrees to LIMITED INCOMING travel restriction - all travelers from West Africa can ONLY LAND at a hand full of select airports, with proper screening.. (whatever proper screening is in their minds) - it has been shown that 'temperature checks' and 'filling out a form' is not reliable.. It was mentioned that a medical sniffer dog may be the best first line of screening defence..

    The better way would be to have a 24 hour layover 'in quarantine' while rapid blood tests are performed.. IN-AIRPORT secure hold-over, with blood test.. Apparently they can do an evaluation in 24 hours on a special blood test and let travelers go on their way.. It's "fair and balanced" without a total shut-down and a compromise which could work.

    To have open borders, one MUST do the above for safety..

    NOW all that does NOT preclude a terrorist with immunity from taking in an aerosol container and using it.. THAT is truly chilling..

    Cameraman now all clear.. Dr. Brantly's magic serum helps heal another.

    The freelance cameraman who was diagnosed with Ebola while working for NBC News in Liberia has cleared the virus from his system and can leave the special isolation unit at Nebraska Medical Center. Apparently strong enough with minimal organ damage, a blood test confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that Ashoka Mukpo, 33, can head home to Providence, R.I., NBC News reported Tuesday night.

    (It was assumed that the procedure was 3 tests in a row clear, patient can go home.. hmm, only one needed now? Not sure if that is the full story..)

    Meanwhile - an unidentified patient being treated at Emory is now "free of Ebola virus disease" and was discharged Sunday from the facility, the medical center said in a statement released Monday afternoon.

    The man, who has requested anonymity since being admitted to Emory's Serious Communicable Disease Unit on Sept. 9, now poses no threat to public health and has left the hospital for an "undisclosed location," the hospital added.

    Wonder who the stranger is who was able to make it into the prestigious Emory University Isolation facility, the class - 4 facility able to deal with Grade A biopathogens, the place which was designed for CDC or government officials to seek treatment? And this person doesn't want to reveal who they are or thank publicly, for getting some miraculous cure? What cure, what treatment, surely the medical establishment world wide, wants to KNOW what worked? How was it done, what procedure, how long, what statistics?

    Not talking about that, keeping an "unknown" in Emory's isolation unit, especially with a need to be in a class 4 biocontainment facility.. sure leaves a lot of non-support for those seeing to try to deal with the infection in Africa..

    An article from InfoWars points out

    Scientists identified as early as 1995 Ebola under lower temperatures can be effectively spread in an Aerosol, citing in the winter, in NY city for instance or any other cold temperature country, Ebola could very well be an effective bioweapon



    Quote Ebola can go airborne but hasn't in West Africa because it's too warm, researchers conclude


    “We… demonstrated aerosol transmission of Ebola virus at lower temperature and humidity than that normally present in sub-Saharan Africa,” the 1995 study entitled Lethal Experimental Infections of Rhesus Monkeys by Aerosolized Ebola Virus reported. “Ebola virus sensitivity to the high temperatures and humidity in the thatched, mud, and wattle huts shared by infected family members in southern Sudan and northern Zaire may have been a factor limiting aerosol transmission of Ebola virus in the African epidemics.”

    “Both elevated temperature and relative humidity have been shown to reduce the aerosol stability of viruses.”

    Old study data, 1995 cited by InfoWars but relevant.

    The report mentioned in the #684 post above was conducted in UK, by British government scientists in 2010, and the NIH (National Institutes of Health) report abstract was from 2014.

    Airborne..

    The British study uses specifically EBOLA-ZAIRE strain for the studies, and shows it IS effective as an infectious and lethal bioweapon, via the respiratory (breathing in) route.

    Understanding the polymerase control of a bioweapons virus, or other viruses which can induce hemorrhagic fevers...

    In November 2014 the West African Government of Guinea (in the hotzone) has agreed to conduct trials to verify the cure rate.

    A good article written by Taher Eldemerdash (‫طاهر الدمرداش‬‎) discusses this:

    (Favipiravir - is a relatively low cost simple molecule with dramatic broad spectrum antiviral properties, from Ebola, Influenza, yellow fever, and many more viruses..)


    Favipiravir : 6-FLUORO-3-HYDROXYPYRAZINE-2-CARBOXAMIDE

    Favipiravir (T-705 or Avigan), developed by Fujifilm, is currently undergoing animals tests in Japan with results expected in late September (completed and successfully works).

    It is an experimental drug which inhibits viral replication and has activity against a number of viruses including influenza, yellow fever and West Nile virus.

    In France, a surviving case of Ebola is known to have received favipiravir as part of their treatment. A Ugandan doctor evacuated from Sierra Leone has also been treated with Avigan in Frankfurt, Germany.

    A medium scale clinical trial of Avigan is being proposed for November 2014 between the governments of Japan, France and Guinea.

    Hypothetic mechanism of action of T-705. T-705 may be converted to T-705 ribofuranosyl phosphates by host cell enzymes. The triphosphate form, T-705RTP, strongly inhibited by influenza virus RNA polymerase activity. Meanwhile, T-705 and its phosphates showed little inhibitory effect on the replication of the host cell.

    Meaning, it stops the virus from being able to reproduce, without damaging the human cells (or primate cells). This is very good news for broad spectrum antibiotic therapy, and offers hope for stopping not only Ebola but a wide range of diseases with a very high mortality (influenza and measles for instance, it is also effective against HIV).

    Some highlights from the technical merits of T-705 broad spectrum anti-viral

    T-705 is an RNA-directed RNA polymerase (NS5B) inhibitor which has been filed for approval in Japan for the oral treatment of influenza A (including avian and H1N1 infections) and for the treatment of influenza B infection.

    The compound is a unique viral RNA polymerase inhibitor, acting on viral genetic copying to prevent its reproduction, discovered by Toyama Chemical.

    As early as 2005, Utah State University carried out various studies under its contract with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and demonstrated that T-705 has exceptionally potent activity in mouse infection models of H5N1 avian influenza.

    (NIAID is run by Dr. Fauci whom we have heard is downplaying the aerosol ability of Ebola to spread, which was known about for many years by many government agencies.. (and apparently suppressed from the general public to prevent apparently "terrorist use"). Fauci's organization had known about the broad spectrum antibiotic effectivity for easily and dramatically stopping MANY viruses, but NIAID opted to develop VACCINES for specific strains of viruses, ignoring widespread use of CURES for continual treatment..)

    T-705 (Favipiravir) is an antiviral pyrazinecarboxamide-based, inhibitor of of the influenza virus with an EC90 of 1.3 to 7.7 uM (influenza A, H5N1).

    EC90 ranges for other influenza A subtypes are 0.19-1.3 uM, 0.063-1.9 uM, and 0.5-3.1 uM for H1N1, H2N2, and H3N2, respectively. (uM micro-mole concentrations)

    (EC90 or EC50 effective concentration rate needed to kill 90% or 50% of viruses, simple geek-speak designation used for showing effectiveness)

    T-705 also exhibits activity against type B and C viruses, with EC90s of 0.25-0.57 uM and 0.19-0.36 uM, respectively.

    Additionally, T-705 has broad activity against arenavirus, bunyavirus, foot-and-mouth disease virus, and West Nile virus with EC50s ranging from 5 to 300 uM.

    (The above viruses were described in the early sections of this thread, and are SERIOUS viruses.. Showing that it can deal with foot-and-mouth disease AND west Nile virus is highly encouraging as these virus diseases have no existing treatment - which leads to many casualties).

    Studies show that T-705 ribofuranosyl triphosphate is the active form of T-705 and acts like purines or purine nucleosides in cells and does not inhibit DNA synthesis.

    (in other words, human DNA is not damaged).

    In 2012, MediVector was awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Defense's (DOD) Joint Project Manager Transformational Medical Technologies (JPM-TMT) to further develop T-705 (favipiravir), a broad-spectrum therapeutic against multiple influenza viruses.

    Reference: Furuta, Y.; Takahashi, K.; Shiraki, K.; Sakamoto, K.; Smee, D. F.; Barnard, D. L.; Gowen, B. B.; Julander, J. G.; Morrey, J. D. (2009). "T-705 (favipiravir) and related compounds: Novel broad-spectrum inhibitors of RNA viral infections". Antiviral Research 82 (3): 95–102. doi:10.1016/j.antiviral.2009.02.198. PMID 19428599.

    Type B and C viruses reference:

    a broad spectrum anti-viral able to work to inhibit virus reproduction in viruses which create breast cancer tumors AND leukemia. It is a breakthrough in CANCER research, able to stop the known VIRUSES responsible for the tumor development, in other words, VIRAL induced tumors in both cases can be stopped by the proper broad spectrum anti-viral..

    Again, no radiation, no chemotherapy.. the focus is direct action to stop the virus - period, thereby the healing methods can occur where the body's immune system will go after (and remove) the viral remains..

    The solution as has been emphasised, ANTIVIRAL use, and pay attention to why when this is mentioned that this is suppressed..

    Bentley will live

    Bentley doesn’t have Ebola, but he’ll stay isolated in Dallas with plenty of time to play and snooze until Nov. 1, when his quarantine is over. His owner, Nina Pham, has since been upgraded from fair to good condition after contracting Ebola.


    Bentley’s owner, Pham, receives daily updates on her best friend, who she hasn’t seen since Oct. 10, according to the Dallas Morning News. Bentley apparently loves to chew on his favorite toy, is perky and apparently in good spirits.

    The botched procedures at Texas Presbyterian Hospital, Dallas leading to the death of Thomas Duncan, and the sickness of two nurses (both being effectively treated elsewhere) have apparently been "too much" for the hospital to deal with.. Short of completely closing their doors (probably a sensible move), they have said they will no longer be accepting persons suspected or with confirmed Ebola infections..

    (Source)

    Quote The Dallas hospital that has treated three Ebola patients will no longer admit anyone who has been infected with the disease, Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced Tuesday.

    Texas health officials are creating a pair of new Ebola treatment centers to handle any additional cases. Neither of those facilities are at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, which has been heavily criticized for its flawed care of the country's first Ebola patient.
    There is a move afoot to have special centers designed, based on the Class-4 biocontainment facility at Emory University, which was designed to be used exclusively by Government Employees of the CDC (or NIH) when they come down infected with a "hotzone" like virus.

    Quote The hospital has admitted missteps in its care of Duncan, partly blaming the rarity of the disease in the U.S. as well as a lack of support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Dozens of the Dallas hospital’s workers are still at risk for the disease after treating Duncan and potentially exposing themselves to the virus. Another 43 people who had contact with Duncan were cleared on Monday, at the end of the disease’s 21-day incubation period.

    CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden had initially said that any hospital with an intensive care unit could safely treat an Ebola-infected patient.

    (Backpeddling) Frieden said Monday that Ebola patients should be transferred to specialized hospitals.

    Connecticut has 9 being watched for Ebola symptoms

    "Nine people in Connecticut who may have been exposed to the Ebola virus have been told to stay at home and are being monitored by local health authorities for symptoms, a spokesman for the State Public Health Department said on Wednesday."

    (Source)

    Quote They were not publicly identified because of privacy concerns, but officials said three were Yale University students and the others were from one family. At least some had traveled to West Africa.
    Quarantine - the nine people would be confined to their homes for 21 days and would be checked by public health authorities.

    Updated numbers - the toll continues.. Doubling now every couple weeks..

    (Reuters) - At least 4,877 people have died in the world's worst recorded outbreak of Ebola, and at least 9,936 cases of the disease had been recorded as of Oct. 19, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday, but the true toll may be three times as much.

    The WHO has said real numbers of cases are believed to be much higher than reported: by a factor of 1.5 in Guinea, 2 in Sierra Leone and 2.5 in Liberia, while the death rate is thought to be about 70 percent of all cases.

    That would suggest a toll of almost 15,000.

    (Source)

    Meanwhile, the US has announced an updated policy of MONITORING all travelers who have entered the US from west African countries, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/...0IB23220141022

    Quote The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced it will monitor for 21 days anyone entering the United States from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, west African nations that have been hard-hid by the Ebola virus.

    Beginning Monday, travellers from those nations will be expected to check in with health officials daily, and provide updates on their temperatures and any possible Ebola symptoms.

    The move was announced Wednesday, a day after the Obama administration announced new restrictions on travellers from the same three countries, routing them through the US airports with Ebola-screening procedures in place.

    California back to looking at potential Ebola cases.. This time, neither the health officials, nor any hospital is not talking about being able to care for a class-4 biopathogen patient.

    In Sacramento County, health officials are monitoring two people who recently traveled to West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is centered, but officials said neither person is showing symptoms and neither has been hospitalized.

    Despite state officials' constant conversations with hospitals, it's still not clear which California hospital -- if any -- would be designated to care for an Ebola patient.

    CDC director Frieden had assured the US public that all hospitals were prepared, and has had to backtrack on that statement after the fiasco in Dallas. It appears that some other hospitals are likewise not prepared. Some though have said they are prepared.. It appears to be confusing, just WHO has sufficiently trained staff and who has adequate safety capability and protection equipment.

    Quote At a news conference last week, the state's top health officials said they are choosing a few hospitals best prepared to do the job.

    "It may be within a health care system or within a regional area -- hospitals that we know are fully prepared," said Dr. Gil Chavez, the deputy director of the California Department of Public Health and the state's chief of infectious diseases. "And if we have a patient, we can actually transfer patients to those hospitals."

    But the California Hospital Association said Wednesday no such plans have been made.

    "Whether we're going to move in that direction or not is undetermined, but it is a topic of discussion," said the organization's vice president, Jan Emerson-Shea.

    In addition, a spokesman for the CDPH would not say on Wednesday whether the state still intends to designate Ebola-specific hospitals.

    In the US individual States have said, they are going to come up with their own preparedness, training, and facilities to deal with Ebola - bypassing the CDC's apparently in-effective 'recommendations' (i.e. Texas fiasco)..

    (Source)

    Quote Not satisfied with the federal response, several states are taking the Ebola crisis into their own hands – tapping emergency funds in their budgets, launching treatment units and holding public hearings to stanch the spread of misinformation about the virus.

    The lines of responsibility for what the federal government and what the states should be doing have blurred in recent days, amid questions over guidance initially provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    States considering and planning activity to deal with Ebola or any other class 4 pathogen, i.e. Marburg, or any of the other hemorrhagic fevers discussed in this thread:

    And now, nurse Amber is free of Ebola after treatment in Emory University's Isolation unit, the same one which accepted Dr. Brantly at the outset of US care for Ebola Patients. Emory had just released an earlier unidentified patient, who arrived in mystery and left the same way, cured..

    (that was fast) !

    (source)

    Amber Vinson, a Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, is now free of the virus, according to her family.

    Vinson arrived at Emory University Hospital last week for treatment. As of Tuesday night, officials with the hospital and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Ebola were not able to detect Ebola in Vinson's body, her family said in the statement.

    Vinson "has also been approved for transfer from isolation," the family's statement read. "We all know that further treatment will be necessary as Amber continues to regain strength, but these latest developments have truly answered prayers and bring our family one step closer to reuniting with her at home," her mother, Debra Berry, said in a statement.

    If you recall Amber scared the Nation, while traveling to Ohio with a low grade fever, signifying possibly she was presenting, leading to a large watch list across the nation with some being in quarantine.

    CDC Director Thomas Frieden later said she shouldn't have been boarding any flights given her possible exposure to the virus, but apparently that message never got to the CDC staff that Ms. Vinson had called for clearance to fly to Ohio.

    CIRDAP tells CDC, you got it wrong, it is airborne transmittable

    (It was reported earlier in this THREAD, aerosol, airborne transmission, that the various official statistical data being used to "convince" media, the public, many doctors WAS OLD STALE DATA - yet every time such was pointed out, the report was pushed to the bottom of the stack.. why was that? Effective anti-virals were reported as solutions to vaccines, and THAT was pushed to the bottom of the stack, why was that?)

    CIDRAP ADVISES CDC AND WHO THAT EBOLA IS AEROSOL-TRANSMISSIBLE DISEASE, INCREASING RISK OF TRANSMISSION BY AIR

    The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota has advised the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) that, "there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles," including exhaled breath containing airborne particles that in Ebola virus can remain viable up to 90 minutes.

    (we have been reporting this for days and it was continually poo poo'd and pushed to the bottom of the stack)


    UK Government knew about this since 2010, and NIH *US) new about the airborne characteristics at the same time from interagency notification.

    THAT DATA is either a coverup, ignorance or something deeper.

    ( http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-persp...otection-ebola ) .

    The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) since 2001 has been a global leader in addressing public health preparedness regarding emerging infectious diseases and bio-security responses.

    Although the Center for infectious Disease Research and Policy acknowledges that they were, "first skeptical that Ebola virus could be an aerosol-tranmissible disease" [airborne], they are, "now persuaded by a review of experimental and epidemiologic data that this might be an important feature of disease transmission, particularly in healthcare settings."

    The President, CDC and other government health agencies, in addition to most physicians, to date in public hearings, protocols, and announcements have acknowledged a transmission path of solely direct contact and denied the possibility of airborne or aerosol transmission.

    To quote from the CIDRAP Ebola commentary dated September 17, 2014 by Lisa M. Brosseau ScD and Rachael Jones PhD, "Medical and infection control professionals have relied for years on a paradigm for aerosol transmission of infectious diseases based on a very outmoded research and an overly simplistic interpretation of the data. ...Early aerobiologists were not able to measure small particles near an infectous person ...

    In the 1940s and 50s, William F. Wells and other 'aerobiologists' employed now significantly out-of-date sampliing methods. ...

    They concluded that organisms capable of aerosol transmission (termed 'airborne') can only do so at around 3 feet from the source. Because they thought that only large particles would be present near the source, they believed people would be exposed only via large 'droplets' on their face, eyes, or nose. ...

    Modern research, using more sensitive instruments and analytic methods, has shown that aerosols emitted from the respiratory tract contain a wide distribution of particle sizes - including many that are small enough to be inhaled.


    Thus, both small and large particles will be present near an infectious person. ...the important points are that virus-laden bodily fluids may be aerosolized and inhaled while a person is in proximity to an infectious person and that a wide range of particle sizes can be inhaled and deposited thoughout the respiratory tract."

    Quoting further from the CIDRAP commentary: "Some pathogens are limited in the cell type and location they infect. Influenza, for example, is generally restricted to respiratory epithelial cells, which explains why flu is primarily a respiratory infection and is most likely aerosol transmissible.

    HIV infects T-helper cells in the lymphoid tissues and is primarily a bloodborne pathogen with low probability for transmission via aerosols.

    Ebola virus, on the other hand, is a broader-acting and more non-specific pathogen that can impede the proper functioning of macrophages and dendritic cells - immune response cells located in the epithelium. Epithelial tissues are found throughout the body, including in the respiratory tract. Ebola prevents these cells [macrophages and dendritic immune cells] from carrying out their antiviral functions but does not interfere with the intitial inflammatory response, which attracts additional cells to the infection site. The latter contribute to further dissemination of the virus and similar adverse consequences far beyond the initial infection site."

    The immune cells exposed to Ebola HF virus are prevented from creating essential antibodies needed to kill the virus, while the inflammation continues unabated throughout the body where the virus penetrates blood vessels and tissue, creating internal and external bleeding and fever. By preventing blood clotting in the virus penetrated blood vessels and tissues, the Ebola HF virus can cause external hemorrhaging through blood droplets containing virus infected blood which then are potentially projected to animals and humans in the vicinity.

    CIDRAP is warning surgical facemasks do not prevent transmission of Ebola, and healthcare professionals must immediately be outfitted with full-hooded protective gear and powered air-purifying respirators. CIDRAP's opinion on Ebola virus is there are "No proven pre- or post-exposure treatment modalities;" "A high case-fatality rate," and "Unclear modes of transmission."

    • What has been found - the misinformation and disinformation spread by the official "authority", that convinced, Media, Doctors and many People, nothing to see here. Many people distrusted the "official authority", telling people it's not real, the infection, it is real and has a bioweapons potential, as well as a natural and accidental potential.
    • What has been found - non-vaccine solutions, that can stop hemorrhagic fevers, especially Ebola/Marburg, several other virus diseases, Hep B, Herpes, Epstein Barr, Hoof and Mouth etc.
    • What has been found - the People have been let to die in Africa when anti-virals where known about early in the 2000's, refined during the 2000's.
    • What has been found - massive control and monitoring systems are being put in place to 'protect' the world from 'ebola', and 'other bioweapons' viruses.
    • What has been found - massive bioweapons programs continue to be used by many countries, calling them "defensive research", not offensive campaigns.
    • What has been found - many cancers can be stopped by certain broad spectrum anti-virals.
    • What has been found - ebola and marburg hemorrhagic fevers have been aerosolized, can transfer infection by the airborne route - this has been hidden from the People, Media, Public.
    • What has been found - information told to First Line Responders has been in-accurate, that the ebola virus passes the face masks and can be breathed in and infection can occur.
    • What has been found - the Public, Doctors and Media were told most US hospitals, (and world hospitals) are unprepared to deal with a virus which should be handled in a class-4 BSL facility. The Public and Doctors were told erroneously that hospitals are prepared by "official authority".
    • What has been found - a least one hospital treating a Person, not-prepared, apparently facilitated an unwarranted death, because the two nurses who were infected by the Person were able to recover rapidly with proper treatment. That says, the hospital was not prepared AND treatment methods in proper facilities with proper medication will stop the virus Ebola.

    Dr Craig Spencer, back from being "in the zone", quarantined in Bellevue hospital and being tested, his girlfriend in quarantine...

    Just got back from the hotzone..issue possibly with Ebola making it past the "face mask" which has been noted as being non-effective for small Ebola particle (see earlier post).

    Has symptoms.. not out-of-control symptoms at this time, but checking is being done in the hospital. Bellevue is the designated NY City receiving hospital for Ebola patients.

    The doctor, returned to the U.S. ten days ago from Guinea. His apartment is located at West 147th Street in Harlem. He is 33-years-old.

    UPDATE - 103 deg fever.
    took taxi yesterday to bowling alley in Brooklyn, did not self quarantine..
    6-12 hours more to wait for the test results..
    The PRELIM TEST RESULTS IN - POSITIVE for Ebola - now in NY City.

    So does bowling, putting three fingers into a bowling ball mean, if presenting yesterday, that close contact by someone else picking up and using that ball is possible? The bowling shoes? How about the taxi cab? questions questions..


    He was working with Doctors Without Borders who with Samaritan's Purse and SIMS is leading the medical effort in the Hot Zone in West Africa.

    (multiple sources)

    Update 2 - The Doctor spent Wednesday night bowling in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the sources said. He used Uber taxis to get there and back.

    He landed at JFK airport on Oct. 17 on a connecting flight from Brussels, a source said. Spencer’s temperature was 98.7 degrees upon arrival at JFK, the source added. 5 days later, he was spiking at 103 same as Thomas Duncan.

    He needs treatment STAT.

    Clad in hazmat suits, FDNY hazardous materials specialists sealed off his fifth-floor apartment around noon. Cops blocked off West 147th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam after he was taken to the hospital.
