    Marburg Virus bioweapon - WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction)

    This post builds on the earlier data on Marburg in this thread.

    The causal agent of Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever is a virus of the Filoviridae family, which also includes the Ebola virus. It was identified in 1967.

    Outbreaks of this particular Marburg hemorrhagic fever occurred simultaneously in laboratories in Marburg and Frankfurt, Germany and in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia).

    Those are quite far apart, suggesting that there was a common denominator, an agent of some kind.

    The common denominator was Monkeys.

    The first people infected had been exposed to African green monkeys or their tissues. In Marburg, the monkeys had been imported for research and to prepare polio vaccine. 7 of the cases resulted in fatalities.

    No other case was recorded until 1975, when a traveler most likely exposed in Zimbabwe became ill in Johannesburg, South Africa. Recall during the 60's thru 70's the intense highly developed ex-Soviet Bloc was actively involved in developing chemical and bioweapons of mass destruction. In 1976 Ebola-Zaire a type of Filoviridae appears and an outbreak happens.

    Marburg virus, like Ebola, is a Category A bio-warfare agent under the Center for Disease Control's classification system.

    What has been published about Soviet bioweapons experimentation using Marburg as the virulant:

    In the 1980s, the Soviet Union experimented with the Marburg virus in aerosol form on monkeys and determined that infection required only a few virions.

    That is TWO VIRAL PARTICLES is all that was needed to infect the target.. That is a danger class of ULTRA. It is FULLY AIRBORNE.

    Ken Alibek (formerly Kanatjan Alikbekov) who secretly immigrated to the United States in 1992 revealed information about Soviet experimentation with the Marburg virus.

    The former First Deputy Director of Biopreparat, the Soviet biological weapons program, Dr. Alibek reported that Soviet scientists were researching whether Marburg could be loaded into a warhead or a MIRV delivery system.

    A colleague, Dr. Nikolai Ustinov, died from the virus after accidentally infecting himself while injecting guinea pigs with the Marburg virus for the Soviet biological weapons program.

    As described by Dr. Alibek, the disease that followed was horrifying and induced hemorrhages throughout Dr. Ustinov's body including from his nose, mouth, and sweat glands.

    After he died, Dr. Ustinov's journal was covered in his unclotted blood from star-shaped hemorrhages beneath his skin.

    From Dr. Ustinov's corpse the Soviet scientists isolated a strain of Marburg that was especially deadly in airborne form; the strain was named Variant U in Dr. Ustinov's honor.

    According to Dr. Alibek, as of 1991, the Soviets were ready to manufacture Marburg Variant U in large amounts to be place into MIRVs (Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicles) with 10 separate targeted warheads. Once completed, such weapons were designed to be part of the Soviet strategic/operational arsenal.

    And this is what PUTIN is threatening the world with, grinning like a demon from ear to ear.. "Go ahead, sanction me, make my day.."

    And this is why the world is worried about how to deal with the "training wheels" test of mild weaponized Ebola-Zaire (of which counter-measures exist)..

    So you tell me. False flag?

    Spanish Priest, 75 to receive zMapp mAB treatment for the Ebola infection he has.

    (Source)

    Roman Catholic priest, 75-year-old Miguel Pajares, was flown back to Spain from the Liberian capital of Monrovia on Thursday. He is reportedly in stable condition but at his request no additional health updates will be given, Spanish news website The Local reported.

    THIS request to NOT let the world know about any recovery or worsening is a bit unusual considering how many people are affected. This seems more politically motivated than "personal wishes".

    ZMapp resulted from collaboration between Mapp, San Diego-based LeafBio, and Toronto-based Defyrus Inc. – a biodefense company that collaborates with the U.S. military – according to Forbes. (We have posted the licensing agreement between the two firms earlier in this thread, page 7).


    Meanwhile, Nigeria has asked about receiving zMapp and were told, sorry, no doses are available for you..

    Nigerian Health Minister Onyenbuchi Chukwu said Wednesday at a news conference that he had asked the CDC about gaining access to ZMapp. The New York Times said that Liberia had also asked about getting the drug. A CDC spokesman said the same day that there were “virtually no doses available,” according to The Associated Press.

    hmmm...

    And

    Repatriating Health care workers, and Missionaries

    Any coming back to the US of A now will be required to spend about 3 weeks in quarantine. This is to diminish the risk of a wildfire outbreak in the US.

    Quarantine in the US of A, North Carolina ruling

    Source

    Health officials in North Carolina said on Sunday they will require missionaries and others coming home after working with people infected with Ebola in Africa to be placed in quarantine.

    The quarantine is set to last for three weeks from the last exposure to someone infected in the West African Ebola outbreak, which is centred in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, the officials said.

    Missionaries from the North Carolina-based Christian aid groups SIM USA and Samaritan’s Purse have been working to help combat the world’s worst outbreak of the disease. “This measure is being taken out of an abundance of caution, and it is important to remember that there are no confirmed or suspected cases of Ebola in North Carolina,” Dr Stephen Keener, medical director in North Carolina’s Mecklenburg County, said in a statement.

    “Quarantine is a public-health measure to protect the public that requires healthy people who were exposed to a disease to be prevented from contact with others until it is certain that they are not infected.”

    The statement said the 21-day period is based on the longest duration of Ebola incubation – the delay between exposure and onset of illness. Officials said the average incubation period is eight to 10 days.

    SIM USA said on Sunday some of its missionary staff based in Liberia will be returning to Charlotte, where the group is headquartered.

    AND over in Hong Kong

    A Nigerian has been quarantined and held in Hong Kong for tests - Source

    The 32-year-old arrived in Hong Kong from Lagos, Nigeria's most populous city, via Dubai on Thursday and was hospitalised on Sunday after vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea. Instant testing said he did not have Ebola.

    A densely populated city of some seven million people, Hong Kong is particularly alert to the spread of viruses after Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome killed almost 300 people eleven years ago.

    On July 30, the Hong Kong government said it would quarantine as a precaution all people from Ebola-infected areas who showed any symptom of the disease such as fever, vomiting or diarrhoea.

    Last week, a woman who showed Ebola-like symptoms after returning from a holiday in Kenya, also tested negative for the virus.

    Sounds like a sensible idea - depending if now they are kept apart in isolation, with no infection introduction from other means!

    I read today that so far, there are 10 confirmed cases of Ebola currently in Nigeria all from contact with that Liberian American, Patrick Sawyer who flew into Nigeria with symptoms of that virus who ended up dying a few weeks ago.

    Ebola continues to spread in Nigeria

    Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA, said Nancy Writebol's husband David and the other two missionaries “are healthy and in good spirits.” Nancy Writebol is one of two patients being treated at Emory University Hospital outside of Atlanta Georgia.

    They were checked for symptoms before boarding the private charter plane in Liberia, and again after they landed at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. (They are now in the States).

    The charity said the others were doctors who had been treating Ebola patients, and their names were being withheld to protect their privacy.

    All three are continuing a 21-day quarantine that began in Liberia as a preventive measure. David Writebol will be able to visit his wife after that quarantine lifts.

    ----------
    This lack of identification seems a bit odd.. Any normal illness a patient could say to the hospital, don't let media know, don't let anyone know personal health matters.

    However, with a potential outbreak or potential epidemic, it just seems like people should be informed.

    Glaxo-Smith Kline UK says by 2015 they will have the Ebola Vaccine ready for the open market..

    They are optimistic.. They say they are starting their clinical trials next month, September 2014..

    Source

    GSK's official statement: “We are working with the US National Institutes of Health’s Vaccine Research Center (VRC) to advance development of an early stage vaccine candidate for Ebola. GSK acquired the vaccine candidate when we purchased Okairos in May 2013.

    “In collaboration with VRC, we have evaluated this vaccine candidate in pre-clinical studies and we are now discussing with regulators advancing it to a phase I clinical trial programme later this year.”

    As far as TREATMENT for existing infections -

    Three of Britain’s leading Ebola experts said some of the few experimental treatments currently under study should be made available to African governments.

    They should be “allowed to make informed decisions about whether or not to use these products - for example to protect and treat healthcare workers who run especially high risks of infection,” Peter Piot, who discovered Ebola in 1976, David Heymann, the Director of the Chatham House Centre on Global Health Security and Jeremy Farrar from the Wellcome Trust, said in a joint statement.

    WHO just did an update on cases, deaths:

    Disease update

    New cases and deaths attributable to EVD continue to be reported by the Ministries of Health in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. Between 5 and 6 August 2014, 68 new cases (laboratory-confirmed, probable, and suspect cases) of EVD and 29 deaths were reported from the four countries as follows: Guinea, 0 new cases and 4 deaths; Liberia, 38 new cases and 12 deaths; Nigeria, 4 new cases and 1 death; and Sierra Leone, 26 new cases and 12 deaths.

    As of 6 August 2014, the cumulative number of cases attributed to EVD in the four countries stands at 1 779, including 961 deaths. The distribution and classification of the cases are as follows: Guinea, 495 cases (355 confirmed, 133 probable, and 7 suspected), including 367 deaths; Liberia, 554 cases (148 confirmed, 274 probable, and 132 suspected), including 294 deaths; Nigeria, 13 cases (0 confirmed, 7 probable, and 6 suspected), including 2 deaths; and Sierra Leone, 717 cases (631 confirmed, 38 probable, and 48 suspected), including 298 deaths.

    The numbers in Nigeria appear to be increasing.

    When he arrived, it was said that he is reportedly in stable condition but at his request no additional health updates will be given, Spanish news website The Local reported.

    He received a compassionate dose of zMapp (apparently).

    Today he is dead. Per his request, no additional health updates will be given (sigh)..

    Hi Bob,

    Nano-silver therapies are systematically being vilified throughout this website, and on the internet in general. Added to this understanding, I must confess that I'm among the many members who are confused (perhaps purposefully confused) regarding the difference in meaning of the many names associated to these silver therapies, i.e. colloidal silver, nano-silver, ionic silver, etc.

    Disregarding these confusions, which seem to me a focused agenda of deception, I offer a short video from Dr. Rema Laibow:


    I have been listening to Dr. Rima for many years, and find her work to be spot-on target.

    Disclaimer:

    It is no secret that Dr. Rema Laibow is associated with (Retired) General Albert "Bert" N. Stubblebine III [of "Staring At Goats" fame] in the Natural Solutions Foundation. Both Dr. Rema, and General Stubblebine have been working tirelessly and without reward in their attempt to expose the 'soft kill' agenda of the global elite.

    If you think it does you good - It does you good. Silver colloidal has stopped so many sore throats and cold symptom dead for me. So I am a believer.

    Thanks for the moral support sheme regarding your use of colloidal silver. I too have been using a colloidal silver therapy for well over the past five years.

    However, I must object to your proposal that the benefits of such therapies somehow have a placebo effect. This colloidal silver issue is far greater than some New Age expression of, "one's thoughts effect one's reality".

    With the understanding that the Global Elite are running a Bio Weapons Agenda against the Mass of Humanity, and this Agenda stretches far back into the history of humanity, it is vital we not minimize the importance of Silver Therapies.

    Hi Bob,

    I know from other threads [..]
    (above quote snipped down as the original quote was also edited)

    There are plenty of threads on silver and it's use, adding redundancy here in a discussion about "Hemorrhagic fever and if it the outbreaks happening were deliberate, or accidental, or bioweapons tests" would go off in a different direction than what this thread is attempting to present. I would like the focus to stick with the thread subject.

    Updated for further Clarification - Understanding nano-particles, nano-silver, or nano-carbon or nano-anything (of which viri are nano substances), is critical to know what to do with those nano-particles. Nano particles are able to penetrate cell walls. A cell does not normally have nanoparticles inside of it.. When something enters the cell the cell has to deal with it. A large particle colloid is very different than a nano-sized particle - very different in function and chemistry.

    A VIRUS is a nano-particle. Very very very very very very small..

    I have asked some questions in a post below. How adding more nano-particles to infected damaged cells is going to address the actual affects of Ebola and Marburg infections. (Colloidal silver induces an external electrochemical reaction, not designed to penetrate or denature the normal cell DNA - that is very different than nano-particles). SIZE is everything when it comes to what penetrates or what coats the surface, what gets through membranes.

    Please take a close look at the Ebola symptoms and damage and ask oneself the question, will the treatment that one uses, actually deal with the issues?

    Step by step look at the issues and look at the solutions that one believes one has..

    Then one can start a separate thread to explain how those issues are now addressed by any "treatment".

    Valid information, details, no citing "authority", but provide whatever one can from personal experience, what works, what doesn't what can be improved.. Educate, as best as possible - partial solutions based on authority, really is no different than any other authority explaining status-quo.. It's only fair to present as much useful data explaining what's what..

    More on VECTOR - ex-Soviet bioweapons development group, allegedly turned "white hat"

    The Soviet Union began a biological weapons program in the 1920s. During World War II, Joseph Stalin was forced to move his biological weapons (BW) operations out of the path of advancing German forces and may have used tularemia against German troops in 1942 near Stalingrad.

    By 1960, numerous BW research facilities existed throughout the Soviet Union. Although the USSR also signed the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), the Soviets subsequently augmented their biowarfare programs. Over the course of its history, the Soviet program is known to have weaponized and stockpiled the following eleven bio-agents (and to have pursued basic research on many more):
    • Bacillus anthracis (anthrax)
    • Yersinia pestis (plague)
    • Francisella tularensis (tularemia)
    • Burkholderia mallei (glanders)
    • Brucella spp (brucellosis)
    • Coxiella burnetii (Q-fever)
    • Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus (VEE)
    • Botulinum toxin (botulism)
    • Staphylococcal enterotoxin B
    • Smallpox
    • Marburg virus and Ebola virus

    These programs became immense and were conducted at 52 clandestine sites employing over 50,000 people.

    Annualized production capacity for weaponized smallpox, for example, was 90 to 100 tons.

    In the 1980s and 1990s, many of these agents were genetically altered to resist heat, cold, and antibiotics.

    In the 1990s, Boris Yeltsin admitted to an offensive bio-weapons program as well as to the true nature of the Sverdlovsk biological weapons accident of 1979, which had resulted in the deaths of at least 64 people. Defecting Soviet bioweaponeers such as Colonel Kanatjan Alibekov confirmed that the program had been massive and still existed.

    The Soviets were notorious for saying one thing, and doing just the opposite.

    The Soviet BW program began in the 1920s at the Leningrad Military Academy under the control of the state security apparatus, known as the GPU. This occurred despite the fact that the USSR was a signatory to the 1925 Geneva Convention, which banned both chemical and biological weapons.

    The Soviet Union continued the development and mass production of offensive biological weapons, despite having signed the 1972 BWC. The development and production were conducted by a main directorate ("Biopreparat") along with the Soviet Ministry of Defense, the Soviet Ministry of Agriculture, the Soviet Ministry of Health, the USSR Academy of Sciences, the KGB, and other state organizations.

    In the 1980s, the Soviet Ministry of Agriculture successfully developed variants of foot-and-mouth disease and rinderpest against cows, African swine fever for pigs, and psittacosis to kill chicken. These agents were prepared to be sprayed down from tanks attached to airplanes over hundreds of miles. The secret program was code-named "Ecology". (recall the information on VECTOR, the "ecology program" touted..)

    In September 1992, Russia signed an agreement with the United States and Great Britain promising to end its bio-weapons program and to convert its facilities for benevolent scientific and medical purposes. (again historically, for over 50 years in biowarfare development, the Soviets have continued to not honor any treaty or agreement not to build weapons of mass destruction).

    In the 2000s : The academician, "A.S.", proposed a new biological warfare program, called the "Biological Shield of Russia" to president Vladimir Putin.

    The program reportedly includes institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences from Pushchino.

    reference - Canada - https://web.archive.org/web/20130820...s/redlies.html - CBC reporting


    Quote It was a promise to end decades of germ warfare research by both sides in the Cold War. The Soviets had eagerly helped write the 1972 treaty. But in the process, they realized just how far their own research lagged behind the West.

    So at the very moment they were publicly signing the treaty, they were secretly laying plans to break it.

    Within one year of the signing, senior Soviet scientists, like Dr. Igor Domaradskizh, received marching orders from the Kremlin to begin covertly advancing the biological arms race.

    The Kremlin established a biological warfare research program called Biopreparat.

    Re-iterating from an early post in this thread, #22, what is the viral danger, weaponized. These are not sore throat viri, common colds... Bioweapons specifically have been amplified, to be resistant to ALL FORMS of treatment in vivo (inside a living organism). Plenty of "treatments" can kill viri, however, they can also kill the living organism.

    Bioweapons specialists as have been discussed by the Soviet Defectors have illustrated specifically how making the infectious agents RESISTANT to treatment had occurred.

    Etiology:

    Hemorrhagic fever viruses belong to four taxonomic families, only one of which, Filoviridae, has been assigned to an order (Mononegavirales):

    • Filoviridae
    • Arenaviridae
    • Bunyaviridae
    • Flaviviridae


    Filoviridae - Origin of family and genus names from Latin "filo" for "thread" - branched, circular, "6" or "U"-shaped (the hook)
    These are the family in which Ebola-Zaire belongs, the current outbreak in Africa.
    Ebola virus
    ~Five species (Zaire, Sudan, Cote d'Ivoire, Reston, and Bundibugyo) with varying degrees of antigenic cross-reactivity
    Marburg virus
    ~Virus strains primarily fall into one major class, with less genetic diversity than Ebola virus - Marburg has been weaponized by the Soviets.

    Arenaviridae — Viral particles contain host ribosomes, which appear as dense granules 20–25 nm in diameter and give viruses "sandy" appearance and have a distinct club-shaped or spike projections on viral envelope

    — "Old World" arenaviruses:
    ~Lassa virus — Lassa fever viruses exhibit 4 genetic lineages (3 in Nigeria and 1 in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone)
    To study LASSA fever virus in West Africa, USAMRIID and DTRA established a research organization to obtain samples, study the samples and try to determine the prevalence, attempt to isolate the reservoir for the virus, and look at if solutions to eradicate this virus was possible. (i.e mass vaccination or when infection occurs, if a molecular treatment were possible).

    — New World arenaviruses that cause disease in humans:
    ~Junin virus (Argentine hemorrhagic fever)
    ~Machupo virus (Bolivian hemorrhagic fever)
    ~Chapare virus (also found in Bolivia)
    ~Guanarito virus (Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever)
    ~Sabia virus (Brazilian hemorrhagic fever)
    ~Whitewater Arroyo virus (found in North America)

    Bunyaviridae — Filamentous nucleocapsid, helical symmetry
    — Phlebovirus (includes Rift Valley fever virus)
    — Nairovirus (includes Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus)
    — Hantavirus (includes Sin Nombre virus [SNV] and agents that cause hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome) - there have been outbreaks occurring in the Western USA.

    Flaviviridae — Virions covered with surface projections, Origin of family name from Latin "flavus" for "yellow" (yellow fever virus)
    —Yellow fever virus
    —Kyasanur Forest disease virus

    Bio-weapon potentials

    In 2000, the CDC published a list of Category A agents (i.e., those that are most likely to cause mass casualties if deliberately disseminated, can be released as small aerosols, and require broad-based public health preparedness).

    The list included New World arenaviruses and Ebola, Marburg, and Lassa viruses (CDC 2000:Biological and chemical terrorism).

    According to the Working Group on Civilian Biodefense (Johns Hopkins university), Hemorrhagic fever viruses that pose serious threats as potential biological weapons include the following (Borio 2002):
    • Ebola virus
    • Marburg virus
    • Lassa virus
    • New World arenaviruses
    • Machupo (Bolivian hemorrhagic fever)
    • Junin (Argentine hemorrhagic fever)
    • Guanarito (Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever)
    • Sabia (Brazilian hemorrhagic fever)
    • Rift Valley fever virus
    • Yellow fever virus
    • Kyasanur forest disease virus
    • Omsk hemorrhagic fever virus

    Back in 2004 Vector was hesitant telling the World that one of their scientists died of a weaponized Ebola..

    What in the world was VECTOR doing with Ebola experiments back in 2004? (OH see below, dohhh...)

    Source

    May 25, 2004
    From the New York Times science reports

    A Russian scientist at a former Soviet biological weapons laboratory in Siberia has died after accidentally sticking herself with a needle laced with ebola, the deadly virus for which there is no vaccine or treatment, the lab's parent Russian center announced over the weekend.

    Although the accident occurred May 5 2004, Vector did not report it to the World Health Organization until last week.

    Scientists said that although Vector had isolated the scientist to contain any potential spread of the disease and there was no requirement that accidents involving Ebola be reported, the delay meant that scientists at the health agency could not provide prompt advice on treatment that might have saved her life.

    The first public mention of the accident was over the weekend on Pro-Med, the informal Internet reporting and discussion network of doctors and other health care professionals, which posted the Vector account of the laboratory accident on its Web site (www.promedmail.org).

    Meanwhile simultaneously there is an outbreak in 2004 May (who would have thought that was coincidental...) in Sudan

    Source

    The Ebola outbreak happened in Yambio, southern Sudan. First reported in May 2004, the end of the outbreak was announced by WHO on 7 August 2004. The rapid response involving partners in the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network, and the rapid containment of the outbreak was a success for all involved, ensuring that as few people as possible were affected by the disease.

    What is the mechanism of the Hemorrhagic Fever?

    It is not a kind death. It will be described below as well as the issues which have to be dealt with.. Consider how long one's sore throat lasted, and consider the effects below and look at and test, is what one has as a solution able to deal with what is happening.

    Why?

    It's not like dying in one's sleep, or something like passing from old age, quiet in the company of one's loved ones.

    The hemorrhagic fevers function somewhat similarly (those described in this thread and reiterated in post #154 above.)

    Here are the difficulties encountered by practitioners trying to help a person infected:

    (Consider what each step means and look to see if one has a treatment method which will work to solve that issue - those are the research issues plaguing folks working with these viri)

    Ebola Zaire Mayinga (the full proper name for the Strain) attacks every organ and tissue in the human body except skeletal muscle and bone.

    It is a perfect parasite because it transforms virtually every part of the body into a digested slime of virus particles. The seven mysterious proteins that, assembled together, make up the Ebola-virus particle, work as a relentless machine, a molecular shark, and they consume the body as the virus makes copies of itself. (How is that consumption to be stopped?)

    Small blood clots begin to appear in the bloodstream, and the blood thickens and slows, and clots begin to stick to the walls of blood vessels. This is known as pavementing, because the clots fit together in a mosaic. The mosaic thickens and throws more clots, and the clots drift through the blodstream into the small capillaries, where they get stuck. This shuts off the blood supply to various parts of the body, causing dead spots to appear in the brain, liver, kidneys, lungs, intestines, testicles, breast tissue (of men as well as women), and all through the skin. The skin develops red spots, called petechiae, which are hemorrhages under the skin. Ebola attacks connective tissue with particular ferocity; it multiplies in collagen, the chief constituent protein of the tissue that holds the organs together. (HOW is one going to stop the clotting action, and not induce further hemorrhaging ? )


    Note: The seven Ebola proteins somehow chew up the body's structural proteins. (in other words one's body cannot support itself, its organs, its form. How is the collagen mechanism going to be repaired?)

    In this way, collagen in the body turns to mush, and the underlayers of the skin die and liquefy. The skin bubbles up into a sea of tiny white blisters mixed with red spots known as a maculopapular rash. This rash has been likened to tapioca pudding. Spontaneous rips appear in the skin, and hemorrhagic blood pours from the rips. The red spots on the skin grow and spread and merge to become huge, spontaneous bruises, and the skin goes soft and pulpy, and can tear off if it is touched with any kind of pressure. One's mouth bleeds, and one bleeds around the teeth, and one may have hemorrhages from the salivary glands -- literally every opening in the body bleeds, no matter how small. (How is one going to stop the collagen disintegration, where blood vessels, skin no longer is intact leading to secondary bacterial infections for instance)


    The surface if the tongue turns brilliant red and the sloughs off, and is swallowed or spat out. It is said to be extraordinarily painful to lose the surface of one's tongue.

    The tongue's skin may be torn off during rushes of the black vomit. The back of the throat and the lining of the wind pipe may also slough off, and the dead tissue slides down the windpipe into the lungs or is coughed up with sputum.

    Then the heart bleeds into itself; the heart muscle softens and has hemorrhages into its chambers, and blood squeezes out of the heart muscle as the heart beats, and it floods the chest cavity. (What type of heart lung machine is going to keep a person going when that set of conditions happens? Who has those and is willing to run a person infected on one - what type of containment facility will have such set-up?)

    The brain becomes clogged with dead blood cells, a conditions known as sludging of the brain. (What substances will pass the blood/brain barrier and stop the damage? Can anyone show a study that something has been made which can pass the blood-brain barrier safely and perform the needed repairs?)

    Ebola attacks the lining of the eyeball, and the eyeballs may fill up with blood: one may go blind. Droplets of blood stand out on the eyelids: one may weep blood. The blood runs from the eyes then down the cheeks and refuses to coagulate.

    As the clots and hemorrhaging alternate in the small blood vessels still remaining, one may have a hemispherical stroke, in which one whole side of the body is paralyzed, which is invariably fatal in a case of Ebola.

    Even while the body's internal organs are becoming plugged with coagulated blood, the blood that streams out of the body cannot clot; it resembles whey being squeezed out of curds.

    The blood has been stripped of its clotting factors. (How is one going to restore PROPER normal clotting?)

    If one puts the runny Ebola blood in a test tube and look at it, one will see that the blood is destroyed. Its red cells are broken and dead. The blood looks as if it has been buzzed in an electric blender.

    Ebola kills a great deal of tissue while the host is still alive.

    It triggers a creeping, spotty necrosis that spreads through all the internal organs. The liver bulges up and turns yellow, begins to liquefy, and then it cracks apart. (How is that damaged liver going to be repaired?)

    The cracks run across the liver and deep inside it, and the liver completely dies and goes putrid.

    The kidneys becomes jammed with blood clots and dead cells, and cease functioning. As the kidneys fail, the blood becomes toxic with urine. (How are toxins going to be purified at this point with kidney dialysis? Who has those machines who can deal with a person infected with the Filoviridae (ebola or marburg)..)

    The spleen turns into a single huge, hard blood clot the size of a baseball. (How is the spleen going to recover?)

    The intestines may fill up completely with blood. The lining of the gut dies and sloughs off into the bowels and is defecated along with large amounts of blood. (No more ability to have food absorbed.. How is that going to be repaired, treated, healed?)

    In men, the testicles bloat up and turns black-and-blue, the semen goes hot with Ebola, and the nipples may bleed. In women, the labia turn blue, livid, and protrusive, and there may be massive vaginal bleeding. The virus is a catastrophe for a pregnant woman: the child is aborted spontaneously and is usually infected with Ebola virus, born with red eyes and a bloody nose.

    Ebola destroys the brain more thoroughly than does Marburg, and Ebola victims often go into epileptic convulsions during the final stage. The convulsions are generalized grand mal seizures -- the whole body twitches and shakes, the arms and legs thrash around, and the eyes, sometimes bloody, roll up into the head.

    The tremors and convulsions of the patient may smear or splatter blood around. Possibly this epileptic splashing of blood is one of Ebola's strategies for success -- it makes the victim go into a flurry of seizures as he dies, spreading blood all over the place, thus giving the virus a chance to jump to a new host -- a kind of transmission through smearing.

    Ebola (and Marburg) multiplies so rapidly and powerfully that the body's infected cells become crystal-like blocks of packed virus particles. (How are those crystals going to be safely disrupted?)

    These crystal are broods of virus getting ready to hatch from the cell. They are known as bricks. The bricks, or crystals, first appear near the center of the cell and then migrate towards the surface. As a crystal reaches a cell wall, it disintegrates into hundreds of individual virus particles, and the broodlings push through the cell wall like hair and float away in the bloodstream of the host.

    The hatched Ebola particles cling to cells everywhere in the body, and get inside them, and continue to multiply. It keeps on multiplying until areas of tissue all through the body are filled with crystalloids, which hatch, and more Ebola particles drift into the bloodstream, and the amplification continues inexorably until a droplet of the hosts blood can contain a hundred million individual particles.

    After death, the cadaver suddenly deteriorates: the internal organs, having been dead or partially dead for days, have already begun to dissolve, and a sort of shock-related meltdown occurs. The corpse's connective tissue, skin, and organs, already peppered with dead spots, heated by fever, and damaged by shock, begin to liquefy, and the fluids that leak from the cadaver are saturated with Ebola-virus particles."

    So it seems the diagnosticians, the doctors, the care giver's, everyone in the loop has their hands full, trying to not come down with it themselves..

    EDUCATION is the key here, understanding what it is, why it is here, who stands to benefit from it (and thereby potentially distribute such viri in a bioweapons campaign...)

    Canada says WE HAVE VACCINE and will provide what we have to Africa

    Canada to donate its own Ebola vaccine to WHO for use in Africa - Reuters posts an important story

    (Reuters) - Canada will donate a small quantity of an experimental Ebola vaccine developed in its government lab to the World Health Organization for use in Africa, the country's health minister said on Tuesday.

    The decision to donate the vaccine came after the WHO said on Tuesday that it was ethical to offer untested drugs to people infected by the virus.

    The Canadian government will donate between 800 to 1,000 doses of the vaccine, with the final number given dependent on how much Canada holds back for research and clinical trials. The government will also keep a small supply in case it is needed domestically.

    Canada only has about 1,500 animal doses of the vaccine, which it invented a few years ago, and would need four to six months to make a large quantity.

    So the sides line up - POLARIZATION in the ranks
    • USA zMapp manufacturer has treatment and vaccine says nobody is going to get it unless they pay thru the nose through the licensing arrangements (capitalism at its finest)
    • Canada says we have vaccines and we will make it available
    • A US company in Massachusetts says WE will give the treatment (and vaccines) if we can get USA approval.
    • Russia (Vector Bioweapons facility) says we can make any antiviral you want
    • UK Glaxo-Smith Kline says we can make it, just going to take time
    • China says we are not concerned and will send support equipment, to help contain.

    Who was Mayinga N'Seka ?

    The various strains of the viral diseases were named by the rivers in the area where the outbreak occurred. IN some cases, like with Marburg, the particular strain was named for the researcher who was killed by it.

    Source

    Mayinga N'Seka sadly died October 19, 1976, and was a nurse in Zaïre, now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo. She died from Ebola during the 1976 epidemic in Zaïre. She has been incorrectly identified as the index case (Patient "Zero" ) by several sources, but a World Health Organization commission report on the outbreak lists an unnamed man from Yambuku as the index case.

    Mayinga worked as a nurse at Ngaliema hospital in Kinshasa and contracted Ebola after caring for a nun who had flown in for treatment from the Yambuku Mission Hospital, where the outbreak began.

    The name EBOLA came from the name of the river in the region where the outbreak first was noticed.

    Nurse Mayinga had treated a nun named Sister Fermina, who worked at the Catholic mission in Yambuku, the center of the outbreak. Fermina died at the hospital in Kinshasa while trying to return to Belgium so a diagnosis on the disease could be performed. Had the Catholic missionary managed to return to Belgium, the disease would have spread it is assumed in Europe, leading to widespread suffering and death.

    Mayinga's blood has also been used all over the world in procuring various strain frequencies and structures about Ebola Zaire.


    Nurse Mayinga, patient #3 who was treated and later died in Ngaliema Hospital, in Kinshasa, Zaïre is shown on the bed in the hospital with two support nurses standing with minimal protective gear.

    German Entrepreneurs selling viri - capitalism at work one more time

    Did anyone ever think that one could buy Marburg or Ebola, or any of over 697 different types of viri, off-off-the-shelf?

    Dr. Alibek (the former Russian defector and Whistle Blower) warned that engineered viruses were out there, and such would become part of the toolbox of the bio-warrior.

    In the company's webpage, called the EVA PORTAL, one can see what this company in Europe is offering to "qualified researchers", or institutions.

    One particular page on their website talks about a couple different strains of Marburg Virus - one called strain Leiden, the other called strain Popp, another called Musoke (wonder if they have the Russian "U" variety under special order?)

    (http://www.european-virus-archive.co.../taxSearch.php)



    Seriously !!

    Here is what they say about the Leiden strain:
    NOTIFICATION: This virus is classified in the BSL 4 category.

    This Marburgvirus[Leiden-BNI 2008] is preserved under Viral Storage Medium -80C.
    Tests for the presence of mycoplasmae were negative. To confirm its identity the virus has been partly sequenced.

    Availability: In stock
    Virus Name: Marburgvirus
    Strain: Leiden
    Isolate: BNI 2008
    Unit Definition: Not defined
    Sequencing: partly sequenced
    Infectivity: Infectious, but not yet quantified.
    Storage Conditions: Viral Storage Medium -80C
    Mycoplasmic Content: No
    Production Cell Line: Vero FM
    Shipping From: Germany (BNI)

    Virus Family: Filoviridae
    Virus Name: Marburgvirus
    Strain: Leiden
    Isolate: BNI 2008
    Biosafety Level: 4 (that specifies the containment level required to "safely" handle the virus - BSL-4 is the highest level requiring contained air "MoonSuits", strict contamination control)

    Their pricing is somewhat generic - to be able to have a virus which can decimate civilizations, all it will cost is:

    2392€/vial for partially sequenced (molecularly analyzed)
    2750€/vial for complete sequenced (molecularly analyzed)

    Anyone freaked out by this?

    What makes it even more, what is the word, obscene? is they have a CART feature on their website, which continues to pester the viewer, YOUR CART is STILL empty !
