WHO - Ebola Situation Report - 30 September 2015
There were 4 confirmed cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) reported in the week to 27 September, all in Guinea. Case incidence has remained below 10 cases per week since the end of July this year. Over the same period, transmission of the virus has been geographically confined to several small areas in western Guinea and Sierra Leone, marking a transition to a distinct, third phase of the epidemic

WHO – Ebola Situation Report – 8 July 2015

WHO sitrep 8 july 2015 bar chart

  • There were 30 confirmed cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) reported in the week to 5 July: 18 in Guinea, 3 in Liberia, and 9 in Sierra Leone
  • Liberia was declared free of Ebola transmission on 9 May 2015, after reporting no new cases for 42 consecutive days. The country subsequently entered a 3-month period of heightened surveillance, during which approximately 30 blood samples and oral swabs are collected each day from potential cases and tested for EVD. On 29 June, this routine surveillance detected a confirmed case of EVD in Margibi County, Liberia—the first new confirmed case reported from the country since 20 March. The case was a 17-year-old male who first became ill on 21 June, died on 28 June, and subsequently tested positive for EVD. Two contacts of the first-detected case have since been confirmed as EVD-positive. These additional cases are from the same small community as the first-detected case, and are now being treated in an Ebola Treatment Centre (ETC) in the capital, Monrovia. In addition, a probable case is in isolation at an ETC. The case has a strong epidemiological link to the first-detected case and is showing some symptoms of EVD, but has indeterminate test results for EVD. The origin of infection of the cluster of cases is currently under investigation. At present, these cases are considered to constitute a separate outbreak from that which was declared over on 9 May.

Liberia investigating animal link after Ebola re-emerges

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/02/us-health-ebola-liberia-idUSKCN0PC0WJ20150702

Liberia confirmed a third Ebola case on Thursday, nearly two months after it was declared Ebola free, and officials said they were investigating whether the disease had managed to lurk in animals before resurfacing.

The first new Liberian case, 17-year-old Abraham Memaigar, died on Sunday in the village of Nedowein in Margibi County, about 50 km (30 miles) from the capital Monrovia. Two others have since tested positive in the village.

“We have, as of yesterday, three confirmed cases,” Deputy Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah said on Thursday. “One expired, who was the 17-year-old boy … The two live cases are 24 years old and 27 years old. They are stable.”

Ben Neuman, a virologist and Ebola expert at Reading University, said Ebola survivors, who can carry a small bit of the live virus in their bodies for months after recovering, might be responsible for the new cases.

“The new outbreak in Liberia is probably a rare reactivation that we are only seeing because there are so many Ebola survivors living in one place,” he told Reuters.

Sexual transmission is another possible explanation. The virus can persist in semen for up to 90 days, versus 21 days in other fluids like blood or vomit.

Note: Ben Neuman refutes the WHO 42 day quarantine rule?

Congo and WHO investigate possible Ebola outbreak

Health officials in Democratic Republic of Congo are investigating a possible outbreak of Ebola in a village, the government and the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday.

Eugene Kabambi, a spokesman for WHO in Congo, said the suspected outbreak was in the village of Masambio in Bandundu province, more than 400 km (250 miles) northeast of the capital Kinshasa.

Congo has seen periodic outbreaks of the disease, which since last year has killed more than 11,200 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea in the worst Ebola epidemic on record.

A three-month outbreak that killed 49 people late last year in the remote forests of northwestern Congo was not related to the West African epidemic.

“What we know is just suspicion … For the time being, epidemiologists are on the ground collecting samples to send to the lab,” Kabambi said.

He added that he did not know how many suspected cases there were or when they were first reported. Congo’s health minister called an emergency meeting on the suspected outbreak on Thursday, Kabambi said.

Lomamy Kalema Shodu, a medical adviser at the health ministry, confirmed the suspected cases and said that the government was treating the situation very seriously.

Defense Sec Carter visits AFRICOM

“We’re in a counterterrorism pinch and that’s no joke,” the secretary emphasized. “The evil of [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant], narcotics, corruption, organized crime … are rife in Africa and ultimately they will come home to roost if we don’t combat it there, and that’s what you’re doing so ably.”

The secretary spoke of the “American secret sauce,” defining it as, “Good people around the world like working with us.”

Note: narcotics, Corruption, Organized crime are rife in Africa? I think we can say guns, narcotics, corruption, Organized judicial and political crimes are rife in the U.S.A. Oh not so?
What are TPP, TTIP and TISA? Political and judicial fraud!
What about Monsanto and Maui (Hawaii) or California and mandatory vaccines for corrupt pharma?
Narcotics? C.I.A also known as Cocaine Importing Agency or the increased OPIUM in Afghanistan since the US invaded it.

Vaccine, Not Ebola, Made Doc Sick, Study Finds

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ebola-virus-outbreak/vaccine-not-ebola-made-doc-sick-n318131

Just 12 hours after he got an experimental Ebola vaccine, and just two days after he stuck himself with a needle while caring for Ebola patients in September, Dr. Lewis Rubinson started getting sick.

By then, Rubinson was aboard a jet, being evacuated from Sierra Leone to the United States. He wasn’t sure if he was infected with Ebola or if the vaccine was causing a reaction. He was en route to strict isolation at the National Institutes of Health outside Washington D.C.

Months later, it’s fairly clear the vaccine caused the reaction
. He has no trace of Ebola infection. What’s not entirely clear is whether the vaccine stopped the virus from taking hold, or whether he was never infected in the first place.
