We have had the warnings from the mathematicians.

The possible numbers of Ebola victims worldwide and the US.

Do not forget Murphy’s Law.

“Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”

It is true.

As I have stated before, there are 2 extremes of reactions to the Ebola Virus.

Panic and over confidence.

The responses so far have been closer to the latter.

From CNN November 19, 2014.

“An Ebola survivor has been quarantined in India after his semen tested positive for the virus, health officials there have announced.

The 26-year-old man, an Indian national, traveled to New Delhi from Liberia on November 10, almost two months after he was hospitalized in the West African nation after showing symptoms of the illness, India’s health ministry said in a statement.

He was released from the Liberian hospital on September 30 with documents declaring him free of clinical signs linked to Ebola, the ministry added.

As a precautionary measure, Indian authorities carried out tests on his body fluids, which confirmed traces of the virus in his semen, the statement said.

From the John Hopkins News Network October 14, 2014.

“The swiftly moving Ebola epidemic presents an immense challenge to unprepared national and global health systems, infectious disease expert Michael Osterholm said at an Ebola symposium Tuesday at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, is one of the leading public spokesmen on the Ebola epidemic, which has killed more than 4,300 in West Africa. Although he has reviewed hundreds of published papers on Ebola and briefs top government officials on the epidemic’s spread, Osterholm readily admits that he knows less today about the Ebola virus than he did nine months ago.

“Let’s acknowledge we’re making this up as we go and we have to become more comfortable with uncertainty,” said Osterholm, the keynote speaker at the event, titled “Dean’s Symposium on Ebola: Crisis, Context and Response.””

“At this stage in the epidemic, Osterholm said, the Ebola virus has the upper hand, and the global health community is playing catch-up.

“The virus is operating on virus time and the rest of us are operating on bureaucracy and program time, and the virus is winning hands down,” Osterholm told an audience of 350 in Sommer Hall and more than 2,500 following the live webcast.”

“As the Ebola crisis continues to unfold, Osterholm said he sees “lots of unexpecteds ahead of us.” He said he is convinced that a vaccine is the only hope of containing the outbreak but characterized the U.S. investment in vaccine research as “a drop in the bucket.”

“There’s a big disconnect between the work to get us there and getting it into somebody in Africa,” said Osterholm, at one point calling the Ebola outbreak “[The World Health Organization’s] 9/11.””

From Natural News November 21, 2014.

“If Ebola remains in semen of infected men, why were male Ebola victims in US ‘cleared’ as virus-free?”

“Every discharged male Ebola victim is still a public health threat

What this suggests is that Dr. Kent Brantly, Dr. Thomas Cairns and all the other male Ebola survivors are still a public health threat. If Ebola is still being detected in a male patient who was discharged as healthy nearly two months ago, then it is probably still present in these men, who have since returned home to their families.

The only reason this was even discovered is because the Indian man had recently attempted to fly back to New Delhi, upon which health officials in his native land decided to take extra precautionary measures. The man was reportedly “symptom-free,” yet tests revealed that he still had traces of the virus in his bodily fluids.

In fact, the Indian man had undergone three separate Ebola tests at the airport prior to flying, and all of them came back negative. But when he arrived in India, a follow-up test showed that Ebola was still present, proving both that Ebola tests are wildly inaccurate and that the virus is longer-lasting than we have all been led to believe.”

“Ebola clearly persists well beyond observable infection period

The CDC supposedly agrees with this, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find any information about this in the media prior to this recent revelation. Since we first began reporting on this outbreak, there has hardly been any mention in the mainstream media about the Ebola virus possibly persisting in bodily fluid for several months after a person is cleared as being a “survivor.” Natural News first reported on this possibility in early August.

This ironic failure seems to match the entire Ebola narrative, which has changed dramatically on numerous occasions since it first started gaining speed. In the beginning, we were all told that the only way to contract Ebola was to literally share blood with someone else. Now, we know that the virus can spread through surfaces and even through micro-droplets in the air.”

The man, whose name is being withheld by The Post, returned from Mali on Nov. 14, and came down with flu-like symptoms which are similar symptoms to those exhibited by patients suffering from Ebola, the sources said.

The patient had been suffering from nausea, chills, and body aches but when his condition continued to worsen, he called 911.”

November 19, 2014.

We have a woman in NY City who traveled there from Guinea and collapsed in a beauty salon with as a witness stated, blood coming from  “Face, nose, mouth, everything.” She has supposedly been tested and found free of Ebola.

A man in India, who was diagnosed as cured of Ebola, was found to have Ebola in his semen.

A Cuban madical team doctor has been diagnosed with Ebola.

From The Daily Mail November 19, 2014.

“A woman who dropped dead at a New York salon with blood pouring from her nose and mouth did not have Ebola, tests confirmed today.

The Fire Department sent in Hazmat teams after the woman, who traveled to Guinea three weeks ago, died at Amy Professional African Hair Braiding in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn on Tuesday.

Tests on her body came back negative for the virus, the New York City Department of Health told MailOnline on Wednesday. Her identity has not been released.

An eyewitness who saw the woman, who was reportedly 40 years old, said there was blood coming from her ‘face, nose and mouth’.”

“Costa, a man who works in the building next door, said: ‘We were in the building and all the sudden the other owner came from the store and he said somebody dropped dead in their store.’

He then said he ran in there to find a woman laying on the floor.

When asked what she was bleeding from, Costa said: ‘Face, nose, mouth, everything.’

FDNY crews changed into Hazmat gear outside the salon before heading in, for what they referred to as a ‘fever travel illness’.

The FDNY said it was a ‘clean scene’ with no bodily fluids leaving the woman’s body.

An FDNY memo in October reportedly instructed all personnel to use more vague terms when discussing Ebola, such as ‘fever travel incident’.”

From US News November 19, 2014.

“A member of the 165-member medical team Cuba sent to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone has been diagnosed with the disease, according to state media.

Dr. Felix Baez Sarria is being treated by British doctors in Africa but he will be transferred to a special unit in Geneva at the recommendation of the World Health Organization, Cuban state media said, citing the island’s Ministry of Public Health.

Cuba won global praise for sending at least 256 medical workers to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea to help treat Ebola patients. State officials have emphasized the medics’ high state of readiness for the mission, saying the doctors, nurses and support staff received weeks of instruction in protective measures and equipment.

Once in Africa, the Cubans got two to three weeks of additional training before heading into the field. They were to be quarantined in Africa for weeks at the end of their six-month mission before returning to Cuba.

State media said that Baez, an internal medicine specialist, came down with a fever of more than 100 degrees on Sunday and was diagnosed with Ebola the following day.”

This is what I have been concerned about.

All it takes is one person with Ebola whose symptoms are not recognized in time and travel to a populated area.

That one incident could set off a chain reaction that could potentially be unstoppable.

There are 2 extremes of reactions to this.

Panic and denial.

Much of what I observe is closer to denial.

From Reuters November 14, 2014.

“Mali tries to trace 343 contacts in second Ebola wave”

“Mali is trying to trace as many as 343 people linked to confirmed and probable Ebola victims in an effort to control its second Ebola outbreak, health officials said on Friday.

An initial batch of contacts linked to a 2-year-old from Guinea who died of Ebola last month were close to the end of their 21-day quarantine period when Mali confirmed a second, separate batch of cases this week.

There have been at least four more confirmed Ebola cases in this second episode, all linked to an imam who entered Mali from neighboring Guinea and died late last month with Ebola-like symptoms that were not recognized. Three of these have died so far.

Samba Sow, the head of Mali’s Ebola response, said on state television two more suspected cases were being tested.

Malian Health Ministry spokesman Marakatie Daou said a woman who had helped wash the imam’s body died on Thursday at the Gabriel Toure Hospital in Mali’s capital, Bamako.

Daou said an initial Ebola test result for the woman was positive, making her the fourth clinically confirmed Malian case, although further analysis would be carried out abroad.

Mali’s government said on Friday afternoon 256 contacts had been identified and would be monitored.

A spokeswoman for the World Health Organization said the number of contacts that needed monitoring had risen to 343 by Friday evening, underscoring the scale of the task health workers have in containing the second wave of cases.

Reuters journalists outside the Nenecarre mosque in Bamako’s Djikoroni Para neighborhood, where the imam’s body was washed, said four health workers in protective gear entered the mosque to disinfect it but no effort was made to stop people from entering for Friday prayers.”

“Sheriff Arpaio: Criminal alien cop-killer in California was once my prisoner ”

“In reaction to news that the killer of two Sacramento, California, sheriff’s deputies is an illegal alien who had been deported twice, Fox News Channel invited Arizona’s controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio to appear on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on Monday afternoon. Arpaio, the veteran sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, that’s considered one of most active in the nation, reported that the prime suspect in the killing of two cops is not only an illegal aliens whom he jailed twice and twice turned him over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE), but that the suspect has used several identities.

Sheriff Arpaio has a whole collection of Bracamonte mug shots having arrested him four times.
Courtesy of Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
When first arrested, California authorities said the suspect’s name was Marcello Marquez. After fingerprinting and other processing it was discovered that the killer’s real name is Luis Bracamonte, who was supposedly deported two times by ICE, according to a breaking story in the Examiner..

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), Sheriff Arpaio is familiar with Bracamonte having arrested him in the past. “[T]he controversy surrounding an illegal alien who has been charged with killing two California sheriff’s deputies and wounding another has taken on fresh urgency as Sheriff Joe Arpaio [revealed] the details of his prior four arrests by Maricopa County local law enforcement” said a department spokesman.

Sheriff Arpaio during his FNC appearance told news anchor Neil Cavuto that the “history surrounding this one illegal alien exposes the inherent dishonesty and ineptitude surrounding the federal government approach to illegal immigration.””

““I am calling for a congressional hearing,” Arpaio said, “to find out why illegal aliens arrested by my deputies and other police officers for often serious crimes are handed over to ICE, only to end up back in my jail, arrested again on more charges. Either ICE is letting these individuals go out the back door, free to commit more crimes, or is the border so open that even though they’re being deported they turn around and immediately return?”

Arpaio released his statistics for the past 9 months: “[Of] the approximately 4,000 ICE detainers [sic]placing on incoming criminal offenders arrested by local police and Sheriff’s deputies in Maricopa County, a stunning 1,382, translating to 38% of the total, were repeat offenders. Nor were these necessarily minor crimes, but encompass the full range of criminal offenses, including kidnapping, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, child molestation, sexual abuse, conspiracy, dangerous drugs, and more.””

“Girl paralyzed after complications with Enterovirus D68″

“A Piqua girl is continuing to battle complications that stem from catching Enterovirus D68.

Madison Grigsby, 8, was like any other happy and healthy child up until September 22. That is the day her mother said changed her life forever.

“She was home when she collapsed,” said Erin Carey, Madison’s mother. “She was actually getting ready to get in the shower.”

The young girl was taken to Dayton Children’s where she was diagnosed with EV-D68.

But as her body was fighting the disease, another illness started attacking her spinal cord. It has left Madison paralyzed in her legs and feet.

“Basically, what it did to her body was it attacked her body to the point where her body couldn’t fight it off anymore which caused her to have transverse myelitis from it,” said Carey.

Madison was relocated to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where she is undergoing rehab for transverse myelitis.”

Spencer is the first confirmed patient with Ebola in the city
After the officers were done, they were seen throwing their gloves, masks and caution tape in a public trash can on the street”

“The photos and video, all shot before Spencer’s Ebola was actually confirmed, do not show whether these officers actually entered his building.

However, some are suggesting that for the sake of safety – not to mention public sanity – it would have made sense to discard of these masks and gloves and tape in a biohazard bag.”

“Threat to break isolation in Liberia over food

Dozens of people quarantined for Ebola monitoring in western Liberia are threatening to break out of isolation because they have no food, the West African nation’s state radio reported Thursday.

Forty-three people were put in quarantine after four people died of Ebola in Jenewonda, a town in an impoverished corner of Grand Cape Mount County near the Sierra Leone border, the Liberia Broadcasting System said.

It quoted those quarantined as saying that the U.N. World Food Program apparently has stopped providing food to people affected by Ebola in the area. A WFP press officer said he is looking into the claim.

Liberia is the hardest hit of three West African nations being ravaged by Ebola. The latest figures published Wednesday by the U.N. World Health Organization show the country has at least 4,665 infected people and 2,705 have died there. WHO says there probably are more ill people and deaths but the numbers are under-reported. Overall, the WHO says the disease has killed 4,877 people and infected 9,936, almost all in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.”
