Dr Jacobs said: ‘At the moment, we don’t know what the best treatment strategies are. That’s why we’re calling them experimental treatments.
What have these people being doing in West Africa for the past 3 months? They still do NOT know what supportive therapies increase survival rates? What protocols was Ms Cafferkey using with West African ebola patients?
It is quite an admission, that despite the involvement of MSF, UN, USAID, US Army, UK Army, etc they have not determined a clear recovery protocol and still wait for a pre-infection solution – vaccine.
This blogger recommends they try the alternative solutions mentioned on this blog, they will at least cause no further harm unlike the “experimental” vaccines and GMO drugs.
It has been two months now, since Dr Kalyani Gomathinayagam, 46, returned to India. She is the only Indian doctor to have traversed the Ebola-ravaged terrains of West Africa since the outbreak began in March this year.
Describe a normal day in the case management camp at Foya.
We would reach out to any village resident suspected of having ebola-like symptoms. We would draw their blood for testing and put them in the ‘suspect’ area for six hours. If tested positive, they would be moved to the ‘confirmed’ area. Fresh blood tests would be conducted after 48 to 72 hours. We used to work in high-risk units with patients, a zone in which we could not make more than three rounds per day. We also conducted outreach programmes in the village. Some patients, who were symptomatic but were in denial, would refuse to come to the camp for treatment. So we had to counsel them and their families on taking proper care.
Chinese CDC laboratory team leader Dr Qian Jun has in an exclusive interview with Awoko said they have done 258 tests in eight days. He made this disclosure at the Jui Hospital where they are working with two mobile laboratories.
When asked how long it takes for them to deliver results, Dr Qian said it takes about a day because they do it in batches of 20 at a time. “That batch of 20 samples will take five hours to be processed and get the results out.”
Dr Qian said on Tuesday, they received 36 samples for testing and most of them were negative. “Sierra Leoneans should not be afraid to come out and do tests if they are feeling sick, the earlier they come out the better it is for their survival” he said. “Ebola can be cured and people should stop thinking that they will die and come out early for treatment.”

Note: Dr Jun is confident Ebola can be CURED, not treated, yet WHO reports increasing deaths from Ebola in Sierra Leone. Cognitive dissonance. Who has the better recovery rate, the Chinese doctors or the UK army medical team?
Humidifiers are sometimes seen as a way to combat allergies and the symptoms of colds and the flu – but in reality many can do quite the opposite,” says James Dyson. “The majority are a breeding ground for nasty germs, which are then distributed around your home.” Dyson claims its humidifier eliminates 99.9 percent of bacteria by exposing every drop of water to ultraviolet light twice before it reaches your lungs.
Idea: Every Ebola confirmed Ebola patient is attached to a dialysis machine that has a glass tube/opening to expose their blood to UV radiation.
If UV kills bacterial and viral pathogens on surfaces can it do the same to viruses in blood assuming it does not damage healthy blood cells.
A procedure that requires minimal research and easy to implement NOW! NO dangerous or untested GMO/vaccines
Sierra Leone has its first-ever call centre. The number to reach it is 117.
It’s a tough one, because that call leads to quarantined homes and holding centres for people with suspected Ebola, where people who do have the virus are sharing rooms with those who eventually turn out to have something else. There’s a real possibility you could go in with malaria and pick up Ebola. It is in the public interest that you make that call. But it is hardly surprising if some people hesitate and others run and hide.
In the offices of the British Council, which like so many other public buildings in Freetown has been commandeered in wartime fashion for the campaign against the deadly enemy within, is Victoria Parkinson of the Africa Governance Initiative, set up by Tony Blair. It has for some years been supplying advisers to the governments of six countries, including all three now devastated by Ebola – Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
MSF has great experience, having responded to every previous Ebola epidemic in Africa.
… They are afraid they will be taken away to treatment centres and never see their families again. There are reports of people disappearing into the forest because they’d rather die with their family than be taken into a treatment site.”

AGI works in Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal at present, with new countries on the horizon. We work at two levels: At the political leadership level, Tony Blair draws on his ten years as Prime Minister to offer leaders the kind of advice on reform that only someone who has stood in a leader’s shoes can give. At the same time our teams, based permanently in each country, work shoulder-to-shoulder with counterparts to put in place the ‘nuts and bolts’ needed to get things done
Note: This is the same Tony Blair still lying about the Iraq war and the reasons the west invaded, destroyed and poisoned Iraq with depleted uranium weapons. Tony Blair as the Middle East envoy has brought peace and stability to the region!
The ministry says tests at a hospital in Geneva, Switzerland, confirm that 43-year-old Felix Baez Sarria is now clear of the Ebola virus. The report was carried by Cuban state news media.
Baez is among 165 Cuban medical personnel sent to Sierra Leone to fight the disease. He showed symptoms of the disease on Nov. 16 and was brought to Switzerland for treatment with the experimental drug ZMapp.
Dr. Dan Crawford… and Fankhauser will head to the Liberian capital of Monrovia to help Ebola-stricken patients and others seeking medical help.
The doctors are volunteers with Charlotte-based SIM USA, a Christian mission group that operates a 200-bed hospital in Monrovia, as well as a 50-bed isolation unit for Ebola patients.
