An Ebola victim laid to rest in Africa

An Ebola victim laid to rest in Africa

There’s a worrying new Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where two cases of the highly contagious disease were recently confirmed by the World Health Organisation at Bikoro, a health zone in the country’s northwest Équateur province.

According to reports, no one knows when or how the outbreak started, but the WHO suspects that since April 4, a total of 34 people are thought to be infected with Ebola (though only two of them are confirmed so far), including as many as 18 deaths.

Three of the deaths reportedly involved healthcare workers. Health officials suspect that the high case fatality rate means there may be more Ebola cases already out there in DRC and some places in central sub-Saharan Africa and that this outbreak could have been simmering, undetected for some time.

All nine countries that neighbor DRC has been alerted over the possible spread of Ebola – and international aid teams have been flown into the country to help. This would be the ninth known Ebola outbreak to strike DRC, including one that involved five confirmed cases last year.

Ebola virus disease, which most commonly affects people and nonhuman primates such as monkeys, gorillas, and chimpanzees, is caused by one of five Ebola viruses. On average, about 50% of people who become ill with Ebola die.

The current vaccine against Ebola is said to be experimental and not a licensed product.  According to Peter Salama, deputy director-general of emergency preparedness and response at the WHO, its use also comes with many challenges, as the vaccine needs to be stored long-term at temperatures between minus 60 and minus 80C (minus 76 to minus 112F).

“This is a highly complex sophisticated operation in one of the most difficult terrains on Earth,” Salama said. Toward that effort, WHO released $1mn from its emergency fund to launch a rapid response to the outbreak.

“The estimated budget for the international response is $18mn for a three-month operation,” the WHO said at the weekend.

Medical experts say the virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission, either through direct contact with bodily fluids such as blood or secretions, organs, sweat, urine, tears, semen, or contact with materials that are contaminated with these liquids.

The Ebola virus, also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, has an incubation period of two to 21 days, meaning symptoms can take up to three weeks to appear from the time of infection.
There is no single treatment for the Ebola virus. Rather, patients’ symptoms are addressed.

Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care, with intravenous fluids to re-hydrate them. Controlling an outbreak of the virus, which has the potential of becoming a pandemic, depends entirely on surveillance and the isolation of cases.

Therefore, vigilance has to be raised at airports, seaports and at all entry points for screening passengers from the affected region. With WHO confirming the Ebola outbreak, countries around the world need to take immediate precautions to prevent any spread of the of the highly fatal disease.


It doesn't make sense at all that a country which has been declared Ebola-free may suddenly experience another epidemic. This evidently reveals certain facts are being prevented from the general public to know the truth. Ebola is a biological weapon like Aids but more deadly and dangerous.

Many including independent scientists are aware of the medical crime going on in Congo but the world is very corrupt to the extent that many just don't want to accept that the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control are clandestinely behind the US government project for global depopulation.

They think they are free and have the power to commit crimes against humanity but time will tell when they begin to get the taste of their own medicine. Silenced with money, corrupt African leaders are powerless to speak about the medical crimes which had previously taken place in Africa, however, their days are numbered too.
