Told You So

h/t Comments



This blog, June 5th:
"I repeat for the record, as of June 5th, based on available evidence, and barring any changes in worldwide response, 
this one's going to blow containment.

Get your preps in order.
When it gets out, if it's near you, it'll already be too late." - moi
World Health Organization - Africa, yesterday:
Kampala, 11 June 2019 - The Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) have confirmed a case of Ebola Virus Disease in Uganda. Although there have been numerous previous alerts, this is the first confirmed case in Uganda during the Ebola outbreak on-going in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The confirmed case is a 5-year-old child from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who travelled with his family on 9th June 2019. The child and his family entered the country through Bwera Border post and sought medical care at Kagando hospital where health workers identified Ebola as a possible cause of illness. The child was transferred to Bwera Ebola Treatment Unit for management. The confirmation was made today by the Uganda Virus Institute (UVRI). The child is under care and receiving supportive treatment at Bwera ETU, and contacts are being monitored.
The Ministry of Health and WHO have dispatched a Rapid Response Team to Kasese to identify other people who may be at risk, and ensure they are monitored and provided with care if they also become ill. Uganda has previous experience managing Ebola outbreaks. In preparation for a possible imported case during the current outbreak in DRC, Uganda has vaccinated nearly 4700 health workers in 165 health facilities (including in the facility where the child is being cared for); disease monitoring has been intensified; and health workers trained on recognizing symptoms of the disease. Ebola Treatment Units are in place.
 Also FTR, Here's the WHO party line happy-gas they were passing just 3 days ago:
The continued decline in new EVD cases in North Kivu and Ituri provinces is encouraging, highlighting the commitment of local and national authorities and partners to an effective response to this serious outbreak. All community mobilization activities, focused on enlisting local populations as partners in the response must continue, as well as proven public health measures, in order to capitalize on this trend and bring he outbreak to a swift close.
Allow me to translate that freely, after running it through the Reality Filter™:
"We're f**ked. Your f**ked. Everyone's f**ked. In fact, we're so far past f**ked, we can't even see f**ked in our rear view mirror, with a telescope. The average IQ hereabouts is 75. The average education is second grade. And those are the geniuses. They go to witch doctors. They can't count to 11 with their shoes on. And they think Ebola is caused by evil spirits, or being passed out by the White Devils, instead of the infected blood of dead Auntie, which they then slam dance and play with, bare-handed, after she's dead. After burning the local Ebola Treatment Center and stealing her festering corpse, if necessary. So bend over, grab your ankles, and kiss your @$$ goodbye, because this is going to run hog wild, and there's not a damned thing we can do to stop it. We've tried everything for ten months non-stop, and it's like pissing on a brush fire. Into the wind."

It also bears noting that until now, the closest the disease had come to the border with Uganda was some 50 miles, which the disease, borne by ignorant idiots, hurdled in one move. And this is just the first confirmed case, that they know about.

Twenty-one to forty days from now, it may turn out that they nipped it in the bud, and they heave a sigh of obvious relief.

Or, they find they have 10-50 secondary and tertiary cases, just like in DRC, and the first clue is when 20 people drop dead on the same day, shooting blood out their eyeballs and @$$#$.
And nobody - nobody - can tell you truthfully which outcome it will be, until then.

So the only thing keeping it there, instead of here, with several hundred Congolese refugees now released in Texas, this minute, is that airfare from there to here is more than the average Congolese person makes in a year.

 
 
UPDATED 11:55A PDT: Original case kid is dead, two more cases confirmed in Uganda.
 
(EBOLAVILLE, UGANDA) Uganda announced two more cases of Ebola on Wednesday - a grandmother and a three-year-old boy, confirming that a deadly outbreak has spread for the first time beyond the Democratic republic of Congo.
The Ugandan cases show the epidemic is entering a "truly frightening" phase and could kill many more people, one infectious disease specialist told Reuters.
A five-year-old boy who had crossed into Uganda from Congo died late on Tuesday, said Uganda's health minister, Jane Ruth Aceng, and his family were now being monitored in isolation.
The original Uganda case is dead, and that means he probably had Ebola for three weeks, and was infectious for two. The two new cases mean his parents probably killed two more people, and will ultimately be responsible for hundreds to thousands of deaths in Uganda.

And the shit has officially hit the fan.

Ebola hit Uganda, and officially doubled in 24 hours.
This is now West Africa 2014, all over again.
And I repeat what I said on the 5th:
At this point in 2014, the U.S.A. was 6 weeks from the first Ebola case here when the outbreak had reached this size. (We didn't know that at the time, but that's how it worked out.) The only difference is this outbreak is moving half as fast.
And unlike 2014, we have hundreds of refugees headed here from the exact affected country. This time around, fever (or lack of it) is no longer a reliable tool to screen out the infected from the uninfected.
And it's the only tool anyone, including the TSA, is using.

Meanwhile, WHO had barely 50% of the resources they needed, to monitor Ebola in only 75% of the affected health zones in DRC.
Now they've got to shift some of the resources they already don't have enough of to Uganda, to try and head off things there going totally to crap, like they will.
That will end well. Not.

Sleep tight, folks. Nothing to see here.

  5. But, but, but we HAVE to let them in so they can vote Democrat, er, get the health care they need! (And of course with the aforementioned average IQ of 75 they'll vote D). So what if the population of the US is reduced to 50 million or so,that'll be JUST the excuse to suspend elections for the duration of the crisis AFTER the Democrats take over. As long as the important people survive we'll be fine.

  9. "The Ebola virus can live on surfaces in hospitals for nearly two weeks, a new study suggests.

    Researchers tested how long the Ebola virus could survive on plastic, stainless steel and Tyvek, a material used in Ebola suits. The researchers also simulated different environmental conditions, including a climate-controlled hospital at 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius) and 40 percent humidity, and the typical environment of West Africa, at 80 F (27 C) and 80 percent humidity.


    In general, the virus survived on surfaces for a longer time when in the climate-controlled conditions than in the West African environment, the study found. Under hospital-like conditions, the virus lived for 11 days on Tyvek, eight days on plastic and four days on stainless steel.
    "

    If I can dredge up the links (and they haven't been purged) there are Canadian research studies from prior to 2014 that also document that the colder it gets, the longer the Ebola virus survives.

  13. Even better.

    If he died today, the day after they confirmed it, he's been infected probably three weeks, and infectious to other for two weeks.
    Which means his parents will be dead shortly, and then we'll find out how many people they spread it to.

    @Will,
    It isn't time to bail out, unless you're retired or whatever.
    (In which case, why would you be in town in the first place?).
    What you should be doing is getting your larder and water supply in order, so you could bunker in for weeks (to months) if needs be.

    If there's an active case in your county or the next one over, start thinking about that retreat, or dropping the concertina across the access road and front yard.

  15. Hello Aesop;

    I looked around but couldn't find any info on these questions: Do UV germicidal lamps kill Ebola on surfaces or if airborne? Also, what about activated charcoal or bleach for water decontamination? My guess is yes and yes but that is just a guess. I'm thinking about filters after the outbreak starts here in the U.S.and utilities become sketchy.

  16. I'm sure you've covered this, but what is your best thinking on the longest period Eboloa can remain dormant before erupting?

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's droplet precautions, not airborne (Yet!).
    You don't need filters. you need a clear space 30' around to keep it over there, rather than where you are.

    Being rather cautious, I'd opt for something closer to 300 yards (if possible), but that's just me.

    Don't plan on going out to play amongst it; stay inside your safe space, and shoot anybody/anything trying to violate your buffer zone barrier(s).

  18. @Matt:
    The average incubation is 1-15 days, with 95.9% being <21 days.
    But that's just the fat middle part of the bell curve.

    In 4.1% it incubate for >21 days.
    It can incubate in humans for greater than 40 days in a small fraction of cases.
    Something like 0.1%, which would be 1 guy in a thousand.

    So, about 50-100 people in the 2014 outbreak with active Ebola who everyone would think was uninfected.

    But don't worry: as usual, the CDC, knowing they're only letting 4-5% of infected people slip right past them, only monitors folks who've been exposed for 21 days.

    What could possibly go wrong??

    1. As Aesop has previously noted, the other 900 pound gorilla in the room is that a large proportion of the cases infected with this clade do not show fever until late in the progression of the disease. So even if quarantines were established, and cases were being monitored, barring use of PCR or other genetic based testing, looking for a fever would not catch many actual positive cases.

  20. @Aesop, Would you mind posting the link to the lack of fever for this one? All the stuff I've found lists fever as a key indicator. Thanks!

  21. Trump needs to shut down the border, yesterday. Full-on military deployment, everyone at the checkpoints turned back, patrols seeing illegals crossing elsewhere shoot once as a warning, aim for the second shot.

    Any court issues an injunction, just ignore it and plow ahead, and ask the court how many divisions it has.

    Everything immigration-wise has been bad enough up to now, but I do NOT want to see America turned into some Ebola hellhole just so a few Guatemalans can "have a chance at a better life." F**k them.

    ---------------------
    Yeah, except for the fact that George Soros is sending people here from Congo. "Here" as in San Antonio, where I live.

    I fucking HATE George Soros with a white-hot passion, and hope that someone sends a CIA wet team to kill him and his whole family for what he's trying to do to our country (i.e. destroy it). Hell, a couple generations back a few guys got together and tried to destroy this country, and we burned down 2 continents as a way of saying, "not today, boys." What's one family in comparison?

    Oh, and lest someone say that I'm fixated on Soros, I'll include every single government functionary who has acted to get these people here (or those who have sat on their hands when they could have stopped it). Ditto for NGO types, especially including Catholic Charities and the like, which are making money off of importing the Turd World to everyone's neighborhood. FUCK ALL OF THESE PEOPLE. WITH A RUNNING CHAIN SAW!

      What's this in reference to?

      It can't be that mixup in the 40s. Nobody did anything like "tried to destroy this country"; the worst part of it was the first day, when the Pacific fleet battleships got sunk, for reasons that seemed militarily sound to the people doing it. That was about it.

      So what do you have in mind?

      As for Soros I totally agree but pinning your hopes in the CIA is hallucinatory. The CIA tends to agree with him. Look up what Truman (the guy who created the CIA) had to say about that agency around the time of the Kennedy assassination; he couldn't figure out what had happened to his original idea.

    So they’re already seeded coast to coast.

    Recall that immigrants were screened thru Ellis Island for infectious diseases,and actually quarantined for measles,tuberculosis,etc.Quaint,huh?

    1. THIS is what it's all about:

      The so-called "refugee" invasion and the continued toleration of the INVASION of aliens (legal and illegal) - particularly from Third World countries - constitute the "shock troops" of the globalist, oligarch New World Ordure cabal. The plan: destroy whatever hegemony the nations of the West still retain. Destroy - with their “diversity” - their ability to be self-governing. Destroy their sovereignty. Cause as much strife, economic hardship, crime, mayhem and murder as possible. The brainwashed zombies of the Left are just the current "useful idiots" helping this to occur.

      When the situation gets bad enough the sheeple of the once-free nations of the West will beg their so-called "leaders" to "do something". Then the NWO cabal will come out with their "solution": WORLD GOVERNMENT. (Translated: enslavement of all who are not part of their cabal or the government drones that do their dirty work.)

  31. @Texan,
    Here are some other thoughts. When it gets here (not if) and breaks out everyone is going to be screaming for the vaccine. Remember Aesop has already shown that the gov't could not isolate two potentials the last time around. Well the last number for vaccine doses I saw was 100,000 doses; but let us say there are really 1,000,000. First on the list are the gov't the useless air wasting congress and their staff and families. Next Pentagon, bureaucrats, first responders, hospital personnel and all of the related support industries like hospital garbage removal. So how long before the total head count is over the number of doses. Take about a day to exhaust the supply so you get nothing. So what happens when several cases show up in your city and the ferals figure out that they are not going to be saved. No one is going to want to contact anyone else so when the gov't agents show up to save you in their tyvek suits and see someone coming at them with a knife - gunfire. When the crowd goes to 100 to one gov't pulls back. Would anyone civilian or gov.t drive a relief truck into that seething mass of potential infection. For additional fun remember all of the gang bangers have guns and not one on the federal register.

    Matt Bracken has written some excellent pieces on what happens next - not good for anyone near any population center. Some will survive the first disease bout but are walking infection vectors. See prior writings here (Aesop)on this and think about you ever trusting anyone you see not to be a vector. Anyone with cogent thoughts can take it from here.

    FYI if I think that I have been exposed I am going after the prey of choice - long pig.

  34. That wasn't Marburg at the Hazelton Research - Reston, VA primate facility, it was a new strain entirely (as I understand it) and was named Ebola Reston;

    https://canadafreepress.com/article/the-true-story-of-ebola-in-reston-virginia

    "The Ebola Reston virus jumped quickly from room to room... Ebola apparently drifted through the building's air-handling ducts"...fear mongering? Maybe. But if memory serves, a couple Canadian researchers decided to put it the test, and again if memory serves, they isolated 2 seperate monkeys in special chambers, made sure they had asolutely zero physical contact, infected one of them and then pumped the air from the infect monkey into the uninfected...both died from the same strain of ebola.

  35. My two cents: If we can bring a couple hundred ebola victims into SoCal and Texas border regions, it will only end well. Better yet. Let's import the little bug into NYC and Chicongo. I always though of 9/11 in a positive light too.

    https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2019/p0612-ebola-operations-center.html

    "The risk of global spread of Ebola remains low. Activation of the CDC EOC does not mean that the threat of Ebola to the United States has increased or that changes are being made to CDC’s outbreak-related guidance, such as advice to travelers to DRC or recommendations to organizations sending US-based healthcare or emergency response workers to outbreak-affected areas."

    Yeah, sure it doesn't...

    And for whoever asked, during the last outbreak https://allafrica.com/ had good links to local stories and the MSF press releases. This time their coverage is overshadowed by other concerns but it's still a good place to look for more primary coverage.

  42. People might be interested in how FEDGOV intends to respond to Ebola here.

    This pdf outlines their approach and actually names the hospitals that have been designated for Ebola treatment centers in each region. It is a year out of date, but given the funding process, I'm betting nothing has changed.

  43. From page 7 of the pdf, number and proposed capability of the health care facilities at each level. Sorry the table formatting didn't survive. Note that the regional centers are supposed to have ten beds at each of the ten facilities.

    I haven't found any updated numbers yet, and am willing to bet a certain percentage of the money allocated got used for other things.

    treatment centers (as necessary) to arrange patient transfer;
    • Has enough Ebola personal protective equipment (PPE) for at least 12–24 hours
    of care; and,
    • Provides stabilizing treatment per EMTALA requirements.

    These hospitals are part of the network of Ebola treatment centers across the country
    but have what HHS calls "enhanced capabilities." The selected hospitals are required
    to do the following:
    • Accept patients within eight hours of notification;
    • Be able to treat simultaneously at least two patients with Ebola for duration of
    illness;
    • Have respiratory infectious disease isolation capacity or negative pressure
    rooms for at least 10 patients;

    • Be able to treat pediatric patients with Ebola or another highly infectious disease
    or partner with a nearby facility to do so;

    There is this nugget from page 11

    "Health Care System Training Simulation and Quarantine Center for Ebola and Other
    Special Pathogens
    Through evaluation of the domestic Ebola response, HHS also found a significant gap in
    quarantine capacity in the U.S. health care delivery system. The U.S. lacked adequate space to
    monitor individuals coming to the U.S. who may have been exposed to Ebola patients from
    impacted regions. To close this gap, HPP awarded nearly $20 million to the University of
    Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) for a training, simulation, and quarantine center. Upon
    completion in 2018, this center will provide simulated clinical training to federal responders (the
    National Disaster Medical System and the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps)
    and now has the capacity to quarantine up to 20 individuals simultaneously, if necessary, on the
    UNMC campus"



    Enjoy your ebola kids.

  50. UNMC = University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, NE. We are the largest city in the state and UNMC is located in midtown Omaha, one of the highest population neighborhoods. Just f'n wonderful that they are a designated treatment center and I live within walking distance of their campus.

  52. WHO Uganda's twitter-minder is amazingly forthcoming.

    They shipped the deceased index-kid's family back to congo. Poof! No more confirmed Ebola in Uganda.

    They admit they have at least 3 suspected ebola cases NOT related to the index kid. https://twitter.com/MinofHealthUG/status/1139191279223476224

    Yes, I actually did have WW2 in mind. Pearl Harbor wasn't the only thing that happened - there were many, many merchant ships sunk within site of our shores (mostly the Atlantic). That the Germans and Japanese didn't invade or bomb this country (Pearl Harbor excepted) isn't due to their lack of interest in doing so, it is because they were both otherwise occupied and facing our Navy and Army Air Corps. They didn't try to destroy us because they couldn't. Soros & Co. are doing it through subterfuge, and with the cooperation of a large 5th Column (some of whom are paid quite handsomely for it).

    WRT the CIA - no, they aren't what was intended originally. I just used them as a recognizable 3-lettered agency that does such work on occasion. There are others, and also private contractors. I personally don't care who gets Soros before he succeeds, just so long as he is stopped.

    1. The Japanese had no illusions they could invade us or defeat us militarily. Yamamoto had gone to college in the US and was well aware of our industrial might. He also said that anyone who invaded the US would face a rifle behind every blade of grass (referring to our well-armed citizenry). Their purpose in sinking our fleet at Pearl Harbor was to render us unable to interfere with their expansionist aims in the Western Pacific. Their plan was to then sue for peace after delivering that naval fait accompli.

      As for the Germans, Hitler did not want war with the US. He did not even really want war with England. Depredations on merchant ships notwithstanding, they were never an existential threat to us. My dad, who was in the Army reserves prior to WWII, and served for the duration of the war, told me that public opinion was very much against getting involved. People referred to it as 'Roosevelt's War', as he is the one who agitated for and orchestrated our involvement and subsequent total commitment to it.

      Here is a quote from someone who was intimately involved in the war in Europe: "Naturally the common people don't want war. Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a Communist dictatorship. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goring

  58. As others have said, thank you so much for this information and the updates!

    Just came across this as I was cruising other news sites...

    "Uganda: Three suspected ebola victims escape isolation"

    https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/06/13/uganda-three-suspected-ebola-victims-escape-isolation-risking-larger-outbreak/

    No other western news outlet confirmation on that news yet but... sure seems to fit the behavior profile.

  59. Astonishing: Doctor hid temperature of nurse who caught Ebola as medics wanted to get home for Christmas, tribunal hears. Back from Africa after having been on the frontlines against Ebla, they come back to the UK in December 2014 and they LIE on purpose putting in danger tons of people on UK soil. How irresponsable ! https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/20/doctor-hid-temperature-nurse-caught-ebola-medics-wanted-get/-- The Pauline Cafferkey that got sick was declared ok many times but was readmitted later countless times ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_Cafferkey

    1. I wonder why they assume the three escapees have returned to the country they were trying to get out of in the first place?

  61. Did they "escape' or where they 'taken to be used".......

  62. Down a ways in that Breitbart piece it says the family of the boy traveled to the DRC for the funeral of the boy's grandfather who died of Ebola and then traveled back to Uganda where they live. One paragraph is confusing as it mentions both the boy's grandmother as the 2nd Uganda Ebola death and the boy's younger brother as the 2nd Ebola death in Uganda.
