Truthfully, with the changes I've seen in the USA over the years, I don't doubt we're headed for disaster. I can't see anything else in the future and that is why I do my best to live life to the fullest. I'm old and won't be here much longer and I'm hoping to die of natural causes before the world crashes around me. I am thankful I'm not a young person and do not have young children or grandchildren.

SUBTITLE: Move Underscores Escalating Public Health Crisis in West Africa

WASHINGTON—The U.S. began evacuating families of embassy personnel in Sierra Leone on Thursday, citing concerns that local medical facilities have become overwhelmed by the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

"There is a lack of options for routine health care services at major medical facilities due to the Ebola outbreak," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a written statement.

The State Department took similar steps last week in Liberia. While the agency said the moves represent "an abundance of caution," they also underscore an escalating public health crisis in West Africa..........

So typical of the USA to bombard citizens with riots in MO, release of 600 illegal immigrants with criminal histories, worship of an actor who killed himself, Christians stranded in Iraq, and the POTUS vacationing and golfing, that the Ebola crisis has fallen off the map. It hasn't gone away, hasn't lessened, and continues to spread. Americans have their head in the sand and have a rude awakening. Few are prepared for the future and don't believe it will happen to them.

Yes, tmv, we are on the same page with this subject. One thing I do like about you is you read, research, and don't limit yourself to the petty BS in a little mountain community. I've always believed we are only a dot on the map.

TITLE: Hundreds of bioterror lab mishaps cloaked in secrecy
BY: Alison Young, USA TODAY August 17, 2014

EXCERPT:
More than 1,100 laboratory incidents involving potential bioterror germs were reported to federal regulators during 2008 through 2012, reports show. Details of what happened are cloaked in secrecy.

More than 1,100 laboratory incidents involving bacteria, viruses and toxins that pose significant or bioterror risks to people and agriculture were reported to federal regulators during 2008 through 2012, government reports obtained by USA TODAY show.

More than half these incidents were serious enough that lab workers received medical evaluations or treatment, according to the reports. In five incidents, investigations confirmed that laboratory workers had been infected or sickened; all recovered.

In two other incidents, animals were inadvertently infected with contagious diseases that would have posed significant threats to livestock industries if they had spread. One case involved the infection of two animals with hog cholera, a dangerous virus eradicated from the USA in 1978. In another incident, a cow in a disease-free herd next to a research facility studying the bacteria that cause brucellosis, became infected due to practices that violated federal regulations, resulting in regulators suspending the research and ordering a $425,000 fine, records show.

But the names of the labs that had mishaps or made mistakes, as well as most information about all of the incidents, must be kept secret because of federal bioterrorism laws, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which regulates the labs and co-authored the annual lab incident reports with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The issue of lab safety and security has come under increased scrutiny by Congress in recent weeks after a series of high-profile lab blunders at prestigious government labs involving anthrax, bird flu and smallpox virus. On Friday, a CDC investigation revealed how a rushed laboratory scientist had been using sloppy practices when a specimen of a mild bird flu virus was unwittingly contaminated with a deadly strain before being shipped to other labs.

Earlier this summer, other researchers at CDC potentially exposed dozens of agency staff to live anthrax because of mistakes; nobody was sickened. Meanwhile, at the National Institutes of Health, long-forgotten vials of deadly smallpox virus were discovered in a cold-storage room where they weren't supposed to be.....

TITLE: Ebola has killed more than 120 health workers, WHO says
by Kim Painter, Special for USA TODAY / August 26, 2014

EXCERPT: The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has taken an unprecedented toll on health care workers, infecting more than 240 and killing more than 120, the World Health Organization says.

MY COMMENT: The Spread is beginning. It is completely out of ccontrol in Africa. Fear and Panic are reaching unbelievable levels in the affected areas. Entire townships are being surrounded by military and people kept massed together - or shot if they attempt to escape. Containment has proven to be an utter failure - and worldwide the health communities are taking note - because if it spreads they all know they face death, or refusal to work. Healthcare will collapse in part because of Ebola, and in part because of MERS which also kills a high percentage of healthcare workers. And on top of this a killer flu season will flood the hospitals globally. All 3 diseases initially present with similar situations.

God's Perfect Storm is about to begin.

In six months when this outbreak is contained, you'll be finally exposed as just another phony prophet. At that point, you will have ended up toothless against Lamar, wrong about United Community Bank, proven you do not speak for God, and that mountains only tell tales to crazy people. I look forward to your personal perfect storm.

Ebola Mutation has now been documented. This is significant for the following reason:

This is the widest outbreak in history. Mutations are random, and the risk of mutation increases with every replication of the virus. More spread equals more replication equals more mutation.

Mutations carry the risk that the protein receptors at the molecular level will change. Changes in the protein receptors mean that while any vaccine that may be developed, may be a match for the specific strain used to develop the vaccine, but that subsequent mutations will be immune to the vaccine.

This is similar to what we see in Seasonal Flu's, which is why new vaccine strains need to be produced each year, and why sometimes the vaccine doesn't match the strain circulating, and therefore contributing to a bad flu season in which vaccines don't work.

* Right now there isn't even a vaccine for Ebola - which kills upwards of 90% of those infected.

* Right now there isn't even a vaccine for MERS - which kills upward of 50% of those infected - and which is a coronavirus which is the same family as the common cold and which has Never had a succesful vaccine created.

* Right now there isn't even a vaccine for H7N9

Plagues are coming. You are not prepared. You have been warned. Your blood is not on my hands.

You assume that my warning is to you. I do not know whether it is or is not. I believe that if any would know that - then they must ask of themselves a question......

If one is to take my warnings seriously, and if it is on behalf of God I speak these warnings, then why are the warnings necessary? Why do we find ourselves at this point? That is the beginning of your road, to look back from whence you have come and to ponder your nature and your actions. Seek why, and then you will find the 1st step on your path to salvation.

For those that seek NOT the truth of these matters, then my warning is not for you, nor have I any concern for your fate, for you are firmly on a path of your own choosing, your blinders firmly in place, and which will indeed involve meeting your end, and that simply is the truth of things.

Most will die never even realizing the nature and multitude of their sins. Open your eyes and look at the society you have created, and the world you have defiled, and ask yourself your part in embracing this, and allowing it.

To begin upon this path you must first know your sins. To do this you must leave the comfortable paths you know. Religions, Governments, Political Parties, Cultural Ways. That path of Truth transcends all of these, but only those that choose this path shall live. Still yourself and look at the path you have taken to arrive at this moment. Look hard. What do you see?

TITLE: MERS containment more of a priority than Ebola
by - The Jakarta Post / Fri, August 29 2014

EXCERPTS:
With around 170,000 Indonesians set to fly to Saudi Arabia for the annual haj pilgrimage, health officials are gearing up to ensure no one returns home with a highly infectious and fatal virus. The Jakarta Post’s Hasyim Widhiarto recently talked with Agus Purwadianto, the Health Ministry’s acting director general for disease control and environmental health, on the government’s preventive measures, particularly those against Ebola. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

Question: Are you saying that the government is putting a higher priority on containing MERS-CoV than Ebola?

Answer: Yes. For now, we still see MERS-CoV as a bigger threat to Indonesia, since it can spread through airborne transmission, and many of our citizens will soon perform the haj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia [where MERS-CoV cases have been found].

DAVID's COMMENT: MERS kills at a high percentage rate also. It's symptoms are similar to Ebola. Unlike Ebola, it is airborne transmission as well as bodily fluids, although in truth the world medical community is admittedly stymied about the exact nature of the spread of this disease. Very High numbers of doctors and nurses in Saudi Arabia have died. This is similar to Ebola in that being close to that many sick patients, medical staff is at high risk. This disease also is causing great global concern amongst healthcare workers. MERS is a close relative to SARS, which killed a great many in Toronto Canada hospital. The panic amonst nurses and other support staff in that incident was so high that they had to lock them IN to keep them from leaving.

* Ebola is spreading unchecked.

* Globally, MILLIONS of Muslims will begin the annual trek to Saudi Arabia soon for the annual Hajj. What happens at the Hajj, won't stay at the Hajj. It will be returning with the migration of the Muslim flock.

My question is simple, and is for all..... Do you know WHY this is occurring? Do you know why so many are about to die? Do you understand that even if a Billion were to die from the Plagues - it is still just a small portion of hte horrors of what is about to occur? Do you understand that your entire species is going to be decimated off the face of the earth - until only a remnant remains?

Do you know what is required of you to live?

EXCERPT:
“Six months into the worst Ebola epidemic in history, the world is losing the battle to contain it,” Liu said, calling on able countries to send bio-defense teams to West Africa.“We cannot cut off the affected countries and hope this epidemic will simply burn out. To put out this fire, we must run into the burning building.”

Liu told the U.N. much of what has been done so far to stop the virus is not working.“Riots are breaking out,” she said.“Isolation centers are overwhelmed. Health workers on the front lines are becoming infected and are dying in shocking numbers. Others have fled in fear, leaving people without care for even the most common illnesses. Entire health systems have crumbled.”

DAVID's COMMENTARY: Ebola coming, but it will not come alone, nor will it remain true to a single strain. The plagues are being unleashed, and they shall be numerous and of long duration.

Why, do you ask? Do you seek the Truth?

TITLE: CDC:'Window Is Closing' on Containing Ebola

EXCERPT: At a press conference Tuesday, CDC Director Tom Frieden warned that time is running out to contain West Africa’s Ebola outbreak.

Days after returning from West Africa, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thomas Frieden opened a press conference with a sobering admonition about the effort to contain the Ebola epidemic to West Africa:“The window is closing.”

In an impassioned call to action, he urged American doctors, nurses, and health care professionals to join Africa in its fight.“This isn’t just the countries’ problem,” he said.“It’s a global problem.”

DAVID's COMMENTS: A few facts.... Incubation period from time you are infected to the time you show symptoms can be up to 21 days. Plenty of time to move around and infect others. Also, Ebola Virus can live outside the body (as in on a door, clothes etc) for 3 weeks to 50 days studies have shown. Also - studies have shown that it is possible that Ebola can be spread via aerosolized droplets. And it is spreading unchecked, with no current vaccine, and multiple mutation strains already having risen.

Like everything else you write, your "facts" are filtered and distorted to support your own message. During the incubation when people do not feel sick, there is no spread of the virus. Only after a persons exhibits symptoms do they become infectious. And Ebola can only live outside of live hosts for two days. It is spreading because West Africa does not have the health infrastructure we have - they clean medical gowns with a little light bleach and then re-use them. They run out of rubber gloves. Fear is rampant and the villagers believe that the treatment centers are really there to spread the disease. They have run doctors out of villages instead of letting them help. And there is shame in getting the disease, so family members hide the ill person instead of taking them to an isolation ward. It's spreading, but it is doing so because of ignorance and superstition. Kind of like what you are spreading.
