Special report: Ebola’s thin harvest

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2015/12/special-report-ebolas-thin-harvest

“Since 29 November, not a single new Ebola case has been reported in Guinea, Sierra Leone, or Liberia. If no new cases pop up, the world will be able to declare on 14 January that the 2-year Ebola epidemic has ended at last, after more than 28,600 cases and 11,300 deaths.

Victory would also mean the end of an unprecedented era in Ebola research. The tragedy offered a unique opportunity: Never before had the disease affected enough people to allow researchers to test Ebola drugs and vaccines in a real-world setting. As the number of cases exploded in mid-2014, they set in motion a vast research program that operated at breakneck speed.

But the harvest of that massive effort is thin.

The biggest success so far is a vaccine produced by Merck. A 31 July report in The Lancet  documented remarkable effectiveness in a real-world trial in Guinea. But all other results have yet to appear in the scientific literature. And a careful examination of the data so far—supported by dozens of interviews with the leaders of the studies and other Ebola experts—makes it clear that almost every other trial seems destined to end in questionable results or outright failure. Findings from those that have ended are proving difficult to publish in top-tier journals.”

Note: Personally, “Ebola” was a sickening awakening to the massive global interconnected fraud that is pharma and the vaccine peddling national and supranational bodies.

WHO:Ebola outbreak over in Liberia; West Africa is at zero, but new flare-ups are likely to occur

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2016/ebola-zero-liberia/en/
14 January 2016

Today WHO declares the end of the most recent outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Liberia and says all known chains of transmission have been stopped in West Africa. But the Organization says the job is not over, more flare-ups are expected and that strong surveillance and response systems will be critical in the months to come.

This date marks the first time since the start of the epidemic 2 years ago that all 3 of the hardest-hit countries—Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone—have reported 0 cases for at least 42 days. Sierra Leone was declared free of Ebola transmission on 7 November 2015 and Guinea on 29 December.

WHO Vaccine trials boast: 10yrs to 12months

WHO Vaccine boast
WHO facilitated the accelerated search for safe and effective vaccines, resulting in vaccine development in less than 12 months versus 10+ years.

In July 2015, WHO announced the results of an interim analysis of a Phase III efficacy trial for the Ebola vaccine VSV-EBOV conducted in Guinea. Preliminary results suggest that the vaccine is highly effective. The trial was extended to Sierra Leone.

WHO, the Emerging and Dangerous Pathogens Laboratory Network (EDPLN), and partners have evaluated novel diagnostic assays for the detection of EVD. Six diagnostic assays have been approved for UN procurement.

Clinical trials using convalescent whole blood and convalescent plasma from survivors have been limited to fewer than 100 patients, but have shown that blood and plasma collection can be safe and feasible in the context of an Ebola outbreak. WHO supported strengthening national blood transfusion services for the purpose of safely administering convalescent whole blood and plasma products from Ebola survivors to Ebola patients.

In addition, experts have reviewed and identified a few medicines and drugs – out of hundreds of recommendations – for use in treating Ebola patients or for further clinical studies. These include: ZMapp – a monoclonal antibody cocktail; favipiravir – a small-molecule antiviral; and several small-molecule antivirals with potent anti-Ebola virus activity. All continue to be tested for safety and efficacy.”

BLM and Deals for Chinese Investors…

Published on 13 Apr 2014
Fabian Calvo from TheNoteHouse.us says, “Real investors are scared to death of the imploding U.S. dollar. . . . Not everybody is a gold investor, and real estate is a tangible hard asset that can be rented out. I think home prices could go up until we have another full blown collapse…”

As far as the recent crisis between the federal government and the Bundy ranch in Nevada, Calvo says, “I think this Bundy ranch situation could be the Lexington and Concord of the Second American Revolution. Through the BLM, the Department of the Interior has been confiscating land and going after land . . . The Department of Interior and BLM has been providing sweetheart deals for Chinese investors.”

How BLM sells out America’s land to foreign interests

http://www.naturalnews.com/044738_Bureau_of_Land_Management_foreign_interests_American.html
(NaturalNews) A real estate expert says he thinks the recent standoff between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy is not about grazing rights or the endangerment of the desert tortoise but about “sweetheart deals” for the development of federal land.

Fabian Calvo, in an interview with Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.org, said his firm, TheNoteHouse.us, does $100 million a year in sales of mortgages and distressed notes, and that the “hair on the back of [his] neck stood up” when he was researching the situation surrounding Bundy and the BLM.

‘I have a laundry list of deals approved just in the last year’

“The hair on the back of my neck stood up when I was doing research for this and speaking to some of my contacts on Wall Street,” Calvo said. “The BLM is part of the Department of the Interior, and look at what they have been doing? [sic] Through the BLM, the Department of the Interior has been confiscating land and going after land, for example, in the high desert in California and all over the place.”

Calvo said some were telling him that the BLM was categorizing Bundy’s land for future collateralization or to sell it outright.

“In the Weimar (Germany) hyperinflation, after the hyperinflation, what did they back their currency with? They backed it with mortgages and they backed it with land. This is a total possibility here in America, but here’s the part that is more sinister and crazy,” Calvo said. “The Department of the Interior and BLM have been providing sweetheart deals for Chinese investors. I have a laundry list of deals that have been approved just in the last year.”

Note: The theft and sale of land rampant in Africa is also occuring in America. BLM land grabs look very much like Oromia land grabs in Ethiopia. The billionaire-investor or pirate class with their abstraction called “money” have an unlimited to supply to bribe, cajole, buy or forcefully acquire real, life sustaining assets like farmland. In this the Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Khazarians (false semites), US, European, Latin American corporate pirates or oligarchal families have common interests. Convert the fiction into tangible assets – LAND!

Ebola Situation Report 30 December 2015

  • No confirmed cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) were reported in the week to 27 December. On 29 December, WHO declared that human-to-human transmission of Ebola virus has ended in Guinea, after the completion of 42 days with zero cases since the last person confirmed to have EVD received a second consecutive negative blood test for Ebola virus RNA. Guinea has now entered a 90-day period of heightened surveillance.
  • Human-to-human transmission linked to the most recent cluster of cases in Liberia will be declared to have ended on 14 January 2016, 42 days after the 2 most-recent cases received a second consecutive negative test for Ebola virus, if no further cases are reported. In Sierra Leone, human-to-human transmission linked to the primary outbreak was declared to have ended on 7 November 2015. The country has now entered a 90-day period of enhanced surveillance scheduled to conclude on 5 February 2016.
