While 2017's ebola outbreak has yet to spread outside of the DRC, medical experts warn that if it were to spread outside of the country any time soon, "it might mean an alarming start to a larger outbreak that will continue for some time". In the 3rd video below, we see a mathematical model showing how ebola could spread in a worst case scenario, ebola going airborne which could become an 'extinction level event', while the rest of this story looks at the new spread of ebola and experts fears that a deadly pandemic is still ahead of us - possibly one created by man. First, from Newsweek:
Dr. Daniel Lucey, a spokesperson for the Infectious Diseases Society of America, an Ebola expert and senior scholar with the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University says the 2014 epidemic in West Africa that sickened 28,646 and killed 11,323 as of March 2016 taught us that the virus becomes more difficult to contain once it shows up in a new country. That outbreak which was said to begin in Guinea spread in a matter of months to Liberia and Sierra Leone.
“The crossing of borders means you have to have a regional response and not just a national response. It adds another layer,” says Lucey. Handling any outbreak of an infectious disease takes huge coordination between public health officials, health care workers, local governments and international organizations. “That can be hard to do for one country, but then you have to do it for two or three it’s a new level of complexity.”
As the WHO recently tweeted, the full extent of the 2017 ebola outbreak is still not yet clear but it is clear the 2014 outbreak is still on their minds. As we also hear in the 2nd video below, some are already talking about a vaccine to help stop the spread of this latest ebola outbreak. Does Bill Gates' latest warning come to mind? More on that later.
In 2014, more than 11,300 people were killed in the worst-ever outbreak of the virus in West Africa, most of them in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. During that outbreak, which WHO declared a "public health emergency of international concern," the Western Hemisphere also saw its first Ebola patients.
Seven Americans who had been working in Africa became infected and were transported to the United States for treatment. In addition, two American nurses were infected after caring for a Liberian man who died from the virus in the hospital where they worked in Texas.
According to health experts interviewed in this April of 2017 story at globalist-news CNN, "there will be a pandemic". Sharing within their story 7 reasons why we're more at risk now than ever of a global pandemic, we see once again how 'population density' sets up Americans to be sitting ducks once the next 'Spanish flu' arrives.
Claiming that cities are breeding grounds for such an infection, we see in the chart below how rising populations increase the potential of epidemics and give us another reason to get out of the cities.
It could take just one cough, one kiss, one touch or even one bite to change not only your life, but the lives of everyone around you -- and for months or even years.
In most cases, the closer those people are to you, the greater the risk. But it isn't always that simple.
The risk at hand: an infectious outbreak.
Public health experts believe we are at greater risk than ever of experiencing large-scale outbreaks and global pandemics like those we've seen before: SARS, swine flu, Ebola and Zika.
The facts around urban living are simple: You live, eat, work and move closer to people than in any rural setting, and with this comes greater opportunity for disease to spread through air, mosquitoes or unclean water.
As populations grow, so will the number of city-dwellers, with the United Nations predicting that 66% of the global population will live in urban areas by 2050.
More people in cities can "put a strain on sanitation," said David Heymann, head of the Centre for Global Health Security at the think tank Chatham House. Beyond people's close proximity, "this is a second source of infection," he said, and a third is increased food demand, causing farmers to grow more food, with more animals, making them likely to live closer to those animals as well.
Animals are reservoirs for many diseases, including cattle for tuberculosis and African sleeping sickness (trypanosomiasis) and poultry for avian flu. With people moving more regularly from -- and between -- rural settings to urban ones, the chances of them becoming infected and then living in close quarters with others further boosts the potential for things to spread.
In this new story from Mac Slavo over at SHTFPlan he reports that ebola virus infections are up 800% in a week and WHO officials are now racing against time in attempts to track down at least 400 possible contacts of those who have recently caught the disease. Reporting that it appears initially that their efforts have failed as the contagion continues to spread, Slavo reminds us of what we learned in 2014, "all it takes is one infected individual to make it through an airport checkpoint".
As the Ebola contagion spread across the globe, the panicked populace rushed to stockpile emergency supplies like freeze dried foods, bio-protective body suits and gas masks.
The concern, of course, was that a virus with a 90% fatality rate after infection would make its way to local American communities. As Tess Pennington notes in her Pandemic Preparedness Guide, once it’s within 50 miles of where you live, it’s time to worry and take immediate steps to isolate your family from the threat, because most people won’t realize how serious of a situation they are in.
Looking back at the Black Plague, those living in high populated areas were hit hardest by this pandemic. The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30–60 percent of Europe’s population. Given our vast array of transportation systems, modern society causes infectious disease to spread far more rapidly compared to any other time in recorded history; and because pandemics are fast moving, vaccinations would be useless. Further, in regards to the world’s transportation system, the morbidity rate in a future pandemic could result in millions seeking medical care at the same time thus overwhelming hospitals and emergency departments.
When an outbreak occurs, many will remain in a state of denial about any approaching epidemics. Simply put, most people believe themselves to be invincible to negative situations and do not like the idea change of any kind. They will remain in this state until they realize they are unable to deny it to themselves any longer. Being prepared before the mass come out of their daze will ensure that you are better prepared before the hoards run to the store to stock up.
With Gates continually pushing the globalists agenda as heard in the final video below from Dave with the X22Report which was recorded prior to this ebola current outbreak, we'd be wise to watch for the globalists having the solution to 'the problem' before the medical experts really know what 'the problem' is.
In the first video below we get a lengthy report on the current ebola outbreak straight from 'ground zero' in Africa.
