Ebola Is Becoming a Global Pandemic: New Reported Cases Worldwide

EbolaDespite several confident exclamations from officials that the Ebola pandemic is contained, there are more and more reports of possible or confirmed infections. Several nations are admitting to have Ebola-symptomatic cases or that they are bringing infected patients back from Africa for treatment. New reports of possible infections are coming from Australia, Turkey, Brazil and France. Furthermore, health officials in Germany confirmed that a 3rd infected patient arrived into the country.

Bloomberg is reporting that a nurse, Sue-Ellen Kovack, who returned from volunteering in Africa, has developed Ebola-like symptoms. Kovack treated the infected patients with the Red Cross in Sierra Leone and after she developed a low-grade fever, she was hospitalized in Australia. She is being tested for Ebola and this means that Australia now has its first potential case of the deadly disease.

Even though several people and officials say that the Nigeria’s outbreak is over, a Turkish worker has been hospitalized in Istanbul, after he started showing signs of high fever and diarrhea. The 46-year-old man, whose identity has not been revealed yet, returned from Africa 11 days ago to see his family during the Feast of the Sacrifice holiday. After a Nigerian woman was tested negative in mid-August, this is now the second case of a suspected Ebola patient in Turkey.

Health officials from Germany confirmed that a 3rd infected patient arrived into the country on Thursday. The man, who comes from Sudan, contracted the disease in Liberia and he has been transported from the airport to the St. Georg Clinic in Leipzig, which is located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) southeast of Berlin. Two other Ebola patients in Germany were also flown back from Africa and a World Health Organization (WHO) employee, who had fallen ill with the hemorrhagic fever in Sierra Leone, was successfully stabilized and released from the hospital last week.

Fears are also growing in Brazil, since a possible Ebola patient was flown in an air force plane from Parana to the National Infectious Disease Institute in Rio de Janeiro on Friday morning. The possible infected patient, who is still being tested for the deadly virus, is a 47-year-old man from Guinea, one of the African countries that has been highly affected by the disease. In case that he comes back positive, this would mean that the virus has spread to South America for the first time.

France also reported about a possible infected person, since an unidentified woman from Paris has been placed in sterilized isolation after showing Ebola-like symptoms.

Despite all efforts to contain this deadly virus, there are several new reports of its spreading. Ebola case was already confirmed in Senegal, Spain and in the United States. The first person that was diagnosed with the virus in the U.S., was Tomas Duncan, who died on Wednesday morning in the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Just like the nurse from Spain, Duncan also went untreated and un-quarantined for a week, despite reporting his symptoms. It looks like the world is ill-prepared for the possible global Ebola pandemic.

    Spread TAKE COLLOIDAL SILVER THE ONLY EBOLA CURE flyers
    in New York and at airports to and from Ebola struck countries. Spread this idea rapidly or the amount of cases will increase exponentially.

    COLLOIDAL SILVER KILLS THE EBOLA VIRUS AND ITS MUTATIONS BECAUSE OF ITS MECHANISM OF ACTION WHICH HAS SCIENTIFICALLY BEEN PROVEN BY THE D.O.D.’s STRATEGIC THREAT REDUCTION AGENCY AND U.C.L.A.

    People will form self sufficient communes with militaristic rule.

    Treatment of patients will occur in container buildings with lye hydrolysis capability with drains.

    People won’t work, pro deflationary pressures will be good for our tax/ spend economy. Return to gold / silver:copper based currency will be good

    Dirty people will take last breath without nary a thought as to wether they cleaned the waste from under their nails

    Although they say they’re taking precautions, most of the West is letting people from disaster countries enter and some health workers are becoming infected. If extreme precautions are not effective, what will happen if this disease slips out of the hopsptal/
