445 dead: Deadly Ebola virus could hit Britain – virus ‘out of control’
Posted on July 6, 2014 by The Extinction Protocol

Deadly Ebola Virus Ebola
July 2014 – HEALTH – A new outbreak of Ebola is sweeping across countries in West Africa as authorities struggle to contain it. It has already killed nearly 400 people who suffered multiple organ failure and hemorrhaging. And it could spread to the UK if action is not taken to prevent it. The disease is passed through bodily fluids such as blood, semen and sweat. It starts with fever and fatigue before causing multiple organ failure and massive internal bleeding.

It is feared passengers flying into Paris might carry the disease and could bring it to the UK if they travel on to London using the Eurostar. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned the rapid spread of the infection could get worse. Dr Luis Sambo said: “WHO is gravely concerned of the ongoing cross-border transmission as well as the potential for further inter-national spread.” Since it surfaced around four months ago, 90% of infected people have died from the disease. The first case was recorded on March 21 in Guinea. Since then it has killed 280 people in the country as it spread from remote areas to the capital Conakry.

“There is no vaccine, effective treatment or cure for Ebola.” It is thought the outbreak could have begun in January. On March 30 the virus was reported in Liberia, killing 41 victims. By late May, it had hit Sierra Leone where it has claimed 46 lives. Authorities are working to educate people on how the virus, above, spreads and how to prevent it. The tradition of washing bodies before burial, for example, increases the risk of transmission. There is no vaccine, effective treatment or cure for Ebola. Some victims survive after being given fluids, ­electrolytes and oxygen.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said the only way to stop it from spreading to our shores would be to implement drastic control measures. Professor David Heymann said: “European hospitals have good infection control measures in place which involve isolating fevers of unknown origin and using good clinical practices.” He said hospitals had to keep up their vigilance to ensure Ebola did not strike in the UK. Ebola takes its name from a river in the Congo where it was first recognized in 1976. The American Center for Disease Control said it is likely that infected animals, such as fruit bats, passed on the disease to humans. –Daily Star

I hope it doesn't come to Britain, I do feel sorry for those already effected by it though.

Tis a nasty haemorragic virus. People die from unstoppable internal bleeding. Like all viruses there is no treatment, no vacine.

This one especially...it's the Zaire strain, which has roughly a 7 in 10 fatality rate. To put it in perspective as to what the effects might be if it spreads, there is some compelling evidence to suggest the Black Death was a form of haemorragic fever as opposed to bubonic plague.

One of the probs with this outbreak is superstition. When people feel a bit sick they take off into the bush believing that a demon has got them. It's hard to control the outbreak in those circumstances.

Bit of an update, although it's worth noting that since this article (which was Jul 21) the virus has spread into Nigeria...

Yes it was. When the borders of the affected countries were drawn up by colonial powers, they didn't take tribal grounds into consideration. As a result the borders are fairly porous, making quarantine restrictions pretty much useless.

With outbreaks in the past they quickly moved to isolate the place where it appeared. In that way the virus burns out before it can spread. This time that wasn't done and we can see the result.

Ebola was first seen in Zaire and Ruwanda. Near a cave where bats were resting. When there was an outbreak in a village, the people isolated the hut with the infected persons and pushed food in through the doorway with sticks. If all inside died, the hut with the bodies in it were burned. If there was a survivor, they kept them away for several weeks and still burned the hut. The result was that the disease was contained.

There was a book written several years ago called 'The Burning Zone'. I think Amazon still has copies, worth a read!

The arrival of an Ebola-infected air passenger in Nigeria has airlines and airports scrambling to respond around the world

A MAN collapses at an international airport: It’s a hackneyed scene from almost every plague film ever made. But now it has happened — airports around the world are on high alert as fears mount that the deadly Ebola virus is on the move.

Nigerian health authorities are racing to stop the spread of the flesh-eating Ebola virus after a man sick with one of the world’s deadliest diseases carried it by plane to Lagos, Africa’s largest city with 21 million people.

Nigeria is so concerned it has ordered the establishment of “disease isolation centres” at international airports across the country to prevent any further entry of the untreatable disease.

But the horse may have already bolted.

Not only did the passenger come into contact with people at the megacity’s main airport and in the aircraft itself, he’d spent time in an airport at the uninfected African country of Togo where his flight had a scheduled stopover.

Any number of the passengers, staff — and even visitors — to these places may have already been exposed. Togo is now on high alert as it government fears it will become the fifth African nation to be afflicted by the poorly understood virus.

The spread of Ebola requires contact with bodily fluids - making the untreatable virus possible to contain.

Toronto-based international infectious disease specialist Kamran Khan told NPR: “The chance of Ebola spreading out of West Africa is very, very low. But if it did spread, Paris is probably the first city on the list.”

Cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore and London could also be among the first to record cases.

So many diseases can be spread rapidly via air travel.

Britain had a series back in the 1980's, the premise was a Chinese Bio-weapns scientist infects himself with weaponized smallpox, flies for as long as he can, spreading the disease, and the show was about folks in England who had a resistance to the disease, but so few left alive that normal society broke down.

Netflix has a rehash series called "survivors" where Flu is the culprit. same basic situation, so many dead that modern civilization is collapsed.

This Is What Is Going To Happen If Ebola Comes To America

If the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history reaches the United States, federal law permits "the apprehension and examination of any individual reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease".  These individuals can be "detained for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary".  In other words, the federal government already has the authority to round people up against their will, take them to detention facilities and hold them there for as long as they feel it is "reasonably necessary".  In addition, as you will read about below, the federal government has the authority "to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill".  If you want to look at these laws in the broadest sense, they pretty much give the federal government the power to do almost anything that they want with us in the event of a major pandemic.  Of course such a scenario probably would not be called "marital law", but it would probably feel a lot like it.

If Ebola comes to America and starts spreading, one of the first things that would happen would be for the CDC to issue "a federal isolation or quarantine order".  The following is what the CDC website says about what could happen under such an order...

<<BREAK>>

...This is not like other Ebola outbreaks.

Something seems different this time.

But instead of trying to keep things isolated to a few areas, global health authorities are going to start sending Ebola patients to other parts of the globe.  For example, one German hospital has already agreed to start receiving Ebola patients...

I am so scared of this, that I've been trying to hide my head in the sand like the ostrich...........because it's such a difficult virus to detect and it could become a pandemic if they don't contain it now.

The NHS in the UK is not read for this.

[mention]AS the outbreak of the deadly west African Ebola disease worsens, a doctor treating infected aptients has revealed many are refusing treatment over its links to witchcraft and sorcery.

Doctor Benjamin Black, 32, a volunteer with Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Sierra Leone, told the UK Telegraph that some of those in infected areas were not seeking medical treatment as they thought the disease was the work of sorcerers. “There is a section of population here who simply don’t believe Ebola is real, they think it is witchcraft and so they don’t come to the treatment centres,” he told the UK Telegraph.

“Sometimes, even those who turn up at clinics with symptoms of the disease will be resistant to the idea that they have it. They will say ‘yes, people in my family have died already, but this is witchcraft rather than Ebola’.”[/mention] wrote:

I don't think any country is ready for this. They always said the demise of the human race would be a pandemic, they have been warning of pandemics for years, but have always been flu before. This just seems to much worse than an out of control flu virus. Will people listen this time, there has been so much hype in the past about pandemics that never came to much. The media are always awful at hyping things up out of all proportion, people stop listening and start taking everything they hear with a pinch of salt.
