First Case Of Sexual Transmission Of Zika Virus Reported

Lovers 5Published in LA WEEKLY BY DENNIS ROMERO

Zika’s a particularly evil little virus that could cause microcephaly, a rare neurological condition that causes affected infants to be born with abnormally small heads. This week the U.S. Centers for Disease Control announced a recent case of sexually transmitted Zika reported  in the Dallas area.

“According to a Dallas County Health Department investigation, a person who recently traveled to an area with Zika virus transmission returned to the United States and developed Zika-like symptoms,” the CDC said in a statement. “The person later tested positive for Zika, along with their sexual partner, who had not traveled to the area.”

That said, reports of sexually transmitted Zika are rare, and experts say the most common form of transmission is via mosquito bites in South America, particularly Brazil, as well as in the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, Cape Verde and certain Pacific islands (American Samoa, Samoa, Tonga).

Health officials warned pregnant women to avoid or postpone travel to those areas.

The L.A. County Department of Public Health says pregnant women who have traveled to those regions and who have “symptoms suggestive of Zika virus infection during or within two weeks of travel” should get tested.

“The most important messages concern people who may be traveling to locations in the world where Zika virus outbreaks are currently occurring, and advising them on measures they need to take to protect their own health and prevent bringing the disease back here to Los Angeles County,” the county’s interim health officer, Dr. Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, said yesterday.

The CDC says avoiding sexual contact with potential Zika patients probably is wise.

“Based on what we know now, the best way to avoid Zika virus infection is to prevent mosquito bites AND to avoid exposure to semen from someone who has been exposed to Zika virus or has been ill from Zika virus infection,” the CDC says.

There has been one case of Zika reported in L.A. And given our pathways to Latin America, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if there are more. That case, reported in November, involved a girl who had traveled to El Salvador late last year and later recovered.

It sounds like you shouldn’t be too afraid. But you should definitely be aware. For the latest info on the virus, go here.

Revealing Voice Of An Aids/HIV Theory Dissident

CanadaIs Africa free of Aids and Ebola? Time will tell.

By Micro-Surgeon/Scientist Johan Van Dongen

Ebola and Aids will hit Africa in the future as it did in the past, because this is the intention of criminal governments and corruptible African regimes. The horrific Aids pandemic tremendously has generated scientific controversies within and outside the scientific establishment. Only a minority of scientists, like Johan van Dongen, and other engaged people have access to inside information concerning (bio-warfare) Aids and Ebola research.

As an experimental micro-surgeon Johan van Dongen, in the early seventies, almost at the beginning of the multiple organ transplantation eras, has carried out thousands of experimental organ transplantations. In order to deal with organ rejection he administered, radiation and sera for diminishing the immunity of the organ receiver. Besides that, he also administered uncountable agents to recipients of organs in order to trigger, diminish or completely wipe out the immune capacity which can be compared with Aids.

During his university and hospital appointments in the early seventies, and later undercover in the pharmaceutical industry, he discovered that animals don’t die because of rejection of the transplanted organ but because of multiple infections which can be compared with human Aids victims. So Johan van Dongen noticed that Aids can be induced by radiation, aflatoxins, Immuran/prednisolone combination, anti-lymphocyte sera and many other bio-warfare agents.

Dormant HIV virus

As head of the Department of Experimental Microsurgery, and involved in all transplantation and immunological experiments, Johan also have been involved in many controversies. Especially the connection of his work and the polemic concerning the transmission of HIV.  In many ways, he discovered not only in his experiments but also in the extensive scientific literature the role of an obligatory co-factor that trans-activates the “Dormant” virus HIV in specific human cells.

And this obligatory co-factor which transactivates the “Dormant” virus in specific human cells are deliberately introduced into mostly black-skinned African people, governed by massive environmental factors as you can read in our book: “Aids and Ebola the greatest crime in medical history against mankind,” in order to depopulate Africa.

Therefore we will always like to enlighten readers about the real origin of Aids and the true nature of famous international researchers as Robert Gallo and to enlighten him because of his knowledge of the truth about the man-made origin of Aids we present you an open letter of Leroy Whitfield, which can be read under the title:

Donald Trump: Why Aren’t You Killed Like Jeffrey Bradstreet Or Other Opponents Of Vaccinations Which Not Only Cause Autism But Also Aids And Ebola?

Donald

Donald Trump

This article is dedicated to Jeffrey Bradstreet: By Johan Van Dongen

The above question is raised by me and many others, because recently in the United States of America, over seven doctors have been murdered or found dead in strange circumstances. I find it very necessary to ask Donald Trump this question, because of the statement he made that: “Vaccines Do Cause Autism.” and also to find an answer to why the disappearance from the medical scene or mysterious deaths of alternative health doctors who have real cures, but opposed and disapproved by the FDA?

When I saw the interview of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, nothing shows a possible suicide as mentioned by US governmental institutions. During this interview, Bradstreet showed his engagement, for he was not a person who would give up easily. It was a very optimistic person with a normal attitude. He was laughing, joking and celebrating because his autistic son just graduated from high-school.
The supposed reason for his “suicide” – an FDA raid on his clinic – is nothing new for him. There was nothing new in his life that would have been a reason for him to want to end his own life, only new things that would encourage him to live his life and perhaps encourage others that want to take their lives. Now we have to wait and see what happens to Donald Trump.

The overall conclusion

“Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet has been under attack by big pharma for his success during all his professional life, so there is no way he would have committed suicide for just another attack. He was murdered; the FDA were clearly involved, and the other suspect is the MMR vaccine corporations, who work with the FDA. Dr. Bradstreet loudly published the fact we all know: The MMR jab, which makes billions of profit, causes autism.”

It isn’t only autism which is caused by vaccines but also Aids and Ebola. For decades Africa is used as a bio-warfare laboratory of German and Japanese war criminals under the guidance of the USA because they protect these Nazi bastards. This makes the USA the land of evil, so once Donald Trump becomes president of the United States, there is a lot work to do by replacing black prisoners with white pharmaceutical criminals in three piece suits.

The horrific Aids pandemic tremendously has generated scientific controversies within and outside the scientific establishment. Only a minority of scientists and other engaged people have access to inside information concerning (bio-warfare) Aids and Ebola research.

As an experimental micro-surgeon in the early seventies, almost at the beginning of the multiple organ transplantation eras, I have carried out thousands of experimental organ transplantations. In order to deal with organ rejection, I administered, radiation and sera for diminishing the immunity of the organ receiver. Besides that, I also administered uncountable agents to recipients of organs in order to trigger, diminish or completely wipe out the immune capacity which can be compared with Aids.

During my university and hospital appointments in the early seventies, and later undercover in the pharmaceutical industry, I discovered at that time that animals didn’t die because of rejection of the transplanted organ but because of multiple infections which can be compared with human Aids victims. So, I noticed that Aids can be induced by radiation, aflatoxins, Immuran/prednisolone combination, anti-lymphocyte sera and many other bio-warfare agents.

Dormant HIV virus

As head of the Department of Experimental Microsurgery, and involved in all transplantation and immunological experiments, I also have been involved in many controversies. Especially the connection of my work and the polemic concerning the transmission of HIV in many ways. I discovered not only in experiments but also in the extensive scientific literature the role of an obligatory co-factor that trans-activates the “Dormant” virus HIV in specific human cells.

This obligatory co-factor which trans-activates the “Dormant” virus in specific human cells are deliberately introduced into mostly black-skinned African people, governed by massive environmental factors as you can read in our book: “Aids and Ebola the greatest crime in medical history against mankind,” in order to depopulate Africa and other parts of the world.

This article is to enlighten readers about the real origin of Aids and the true nature of famous international researchers as Robert Gallo. As far as Gallo is concerned, Ricardo Veronesi, professor of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sao Paulo, was personally informed about the true nature of Gallo’s research long before this controversy turned into a public scandal and as a consequence thousands of scientific Aids dissidents.

It was no less than Francoise Barré-Sinoussi of the French Pasteur Institute who revealed the criminal intention of Gallo. Not only she became an Aids dissident? but also the discoverer of the HIV virus Luc Montagnier disputed Gallo, the fake discoverer of the HIV virus.

In their opinion, the major bursts in the common scientific approach of lies in its ignoring that the pathogenicity of the HIV indeed is governed by multiple deliberate environmental factors and one of these determinant factors are the PCR test (Polymerase Chain Reaction Test).

Using and extrapolation of these kinds of techniques we can conclude that people who have HIV in their bodies, were purposely infected with this virus which can lead to Aids. Bio-warfare scientists are able to make black-skinned people ‘Africans) artificially susceptible for HIV or Ebola by using controllable diseases as a cover-up.

Most of the biowarfare research using viruses which cause Aids and Ebola is predominantly carried out in Germany and Japan until 1945 and since then mainly in the USA and France, using Nazi and Japanese (military) scientific war criminals.

Autism/Aids/HIV Theory Dissidents Like Jeffrey Bradstreet

The official scientific origin of the diverse HIV-strains has been placed somewhere between 1938 and 1948 when scientist T.F. Smith et al, published an article in the authoritative medical journal Nature, is 1988, captioned: “The phylogenetic history of immunodeficiency virus.”

He wasn’t the only scientists who revealed the true nature of the HIV virus. Smith’s efforts to reveal the real origin of HIV was followed, to name a few, by Sharp et al with his article: “Understanding the origins of Aids viruses,” also in Nature, followed by Meyers et all with: “The phylogenetic analysis of the HIVs.” But the most important article is described in the top of the bill of medical journals the Lancet,  by scientist L.A. Evans et al who discovered the; “Simultaneous isolation of HIV-1 and HIV-2 from an Aids patient”.

All these mentioned scientists agreed that the distribution of the HIV virus was an intentional action. Their findings make it very conceivable that this distribution was intentional, because sometimes both the new viruses HIV-1 and HIV-2, respectively HTLV-IV, are existing in one and the same person according to Evans. And because his publication is checked by the editing and scientific boards of the Lancet, the outcome of his investigation was true. This counts also for thousands of publications in other medical journals as described in our book “Aids and Ebola the greatest crime in medical history against mankind.”

According to the famous Aids/HIV theory dissident Wolff Geisler, further evidence of the intentional distribution, out of the mentioned simultaneous infection of the same persons, it was described as a second Aids epidemic in the same black-skinned population, by an inefficient transmission of the HIV virus. The appearance of this extreme rare retrovirus among the African Aids patients is so conspicuous that some world famous scientists uttered a sentence about it. They alleged this to be; “Only another acquired opportunistic infection but rather an additional death sentence.” But is it?

In Africa the probability of an early death of HIV patients is three times higher than elsewhere when HIV patients are simultaneously infected with HTLV-1 as described in the Lancet by Page et al in his scientific publication: HTLV-I/II seropositivity and death from Aids among HIV-Seropositiveintravenous drug users (Lancet, 1990; 335: 1439-41), an even more extremely important publication for the Aids/HIV theory dissidents. Because, especially HTLV-I, among many other HIV viruses, was only demonstrated in Uganda, Ghana, South Africa, and Namibia.

Only in these countries, HIV patients appear simultaneously up till now. According to Wolff Geisler, the concomitant existence of HTLV-I and HIV produces the observed rate of Aids patients in Uganda, Kenya and black-skinned people in Florida, USA and some Caribbean Islands, even though in general black people are by nature more resistant against HIV-infection than pale-skinned persons (see below). This means the HIV viruses are genetically engineered as describe in our book.

No less than Luc Montagnier et al, the discoverer of the HIV virus stated that this virus is made out of the Nazi eugenics and  a genetically engineered experiment as well as the development of Aids-causing viruses in horses. In a very talked about an article he described in the authoritative Annals of Virology: “A new type of retrovirus from patients presenting with lymphadenopathy and acquired immune deficiency syndrome”: Structural and anti-genetic relatedness with Equine Infectious Anemia Virus EIAV (horse Aids), 1984; 135E: 119-31.

Equine Infectious Anemia Virus EIAV (HIV/Horse-Aids) made by Nazi Germany

If we compare these findings to our references in:“Aids the greatest crime in medical history against mankind” the book now available at Amazon, the HLA-A, B, C, DR3 and DR5 loci, is examined by the Nazi’s led by Otmar Verschuer.

In 1956, he joined the American Eugenics Society and worked under auspices of the Rockefeller-fund. He was also head of the Department of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Germany.

Furthermore, we have to take into account that within people who have blood type HLA-DR3 Aids, it is much less common than in people who have the HLA-DR5 type. Under the Nazi’s research, it is important to note that precisely the HLA-DR5 type occurs mainly in Jews. The HLA-DR3 type contrast is most common in dark-colored Africans.

The two evidence or references are enough to let you know vividly what took place. In general you can say that it is harder for blacks to get Aids than as it is for whites, but blacks have been made susceptible for a broad spectrum of brand new diseases caused by Germans, partly under the auspices of the South African Apartheid regime, and after the war under the guidance of the U.S.A.

Nowadays we now know that monkeys do not get Aids when infected with the human Aids virus. The same goes for tuberculosis until the moment that monkeys in a laboratory made receptive. Therefore black-skinned people are under no circumstances contaminated with Aids by monkeys with or without eating them. That is so to speak a criminal WHO/ CDC / FDA scientific fairy tale.

 

 

Ebola: The Japanese Cult Aum Shinrikyo’s Attempt To Use The Virus As A Potential Biological Weapon

Aum Shinrikyo’s leader Shoko Asahara

By Scientist/Micro-Surgeon Johan Van Dongen

The Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo, infamous for setting off sarin gas in a Tokyo subway in 1995, also targeted Ebola as a potential biological weapon. In 1992, they sent a medical group of 40 people ostensibly to provide aid, during an Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, their real intention was to collect some Ebola virus, as Amy Smithson, a senior fellow at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, noted in her 2000 report Ataxia.

Even if Aum Shinrikyo had managed to gather samples of the Ebola virus, it would have been extremely difficult to kill large numbers of people in countries with a strong health infrastructure such as Japan. Once the virus had been identified and patients isolated, the pathogen would have been unlikely to spread widely. Still, any terrorist attempting to stoke fears rather than accrue a high body count could have some modicum of success with Ebola. “When talking about bioterror, it’s more about the terror than it is the bio,” said Fauci.

Doctor Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (one of the US National Institutes of Health) stated in an interview that the virus could potentially be used for “small-scale” Ebola attacks, in about three different ways, although each approach would run up against substantial logistical, financial and biological barriers. First, Ebola could be weaponized by taking large quantities of it and inserting them into a small “bomblet” that, once detonated, would spray the virus perhaps 30 feet potentially infecting people as it landed on their faces, on cuts or on hands that they might then touch their eyes with.

Doctor Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (one of the US National Institutes of Health)

“That would be like a hundred people simultaneously touching an Ebola-infected person,” says Fauci. Ebola would not need to be altered in any way to make such a plot work. The virus is already so capable of spreading from person to person via contact with bodily fluids that in its natural state it could do some serious damage.

“Ebola is a very lethal pathogenic virus,” says virologist Robert Garry of Tulane University. “It’s basically weaponizing itself.”

The second, and perhaps easiest, small-scale bioterrorism option would be to recruit individuals for Ebola suicide missions. Such a plan would hinge on injecting Ebola virus into a limited number of people, who would then need to leave west Africa (or wherever the outbreak may be) before becoming symptomatic. Then those individuals would have to get into a public space and projectile vomit or bleed onto others to infect them. Obviously, the plot would need to overcome substantial technical challenges including the extreme weakness that arises from Ebola. If it did succeed, this mode of transmission would not kill thousands of people, but it would set off significant fears.

The third bio-terrorism method appears to be the most unlikely: genetically modifying the virus to enable it to spread more readily, perhaps through the air. As Scientific American reported on September 16, transforming the Ebola virus from a pathogen that primarily affects the circulatory system to one well suited for the respiratory system, would be a major research undertaking. While theoretically the microbe could be manipulated to act in that way, it would be a demanding choice for nefarious actors looking to stockpile harmful materials.

Johan van Dongen

But there’s another delivery mechanism that’s more up a suicide bomber’s alley. They get infected and carry the disease incubating in them but still asymptomatic to their target country. As soon as the symptoms just begin manifesting, the person goes to a highly public area and blows themselves up, spraying contaminated and aerosolized body components all over the surrounding populace, as well as killing or injuring others just from the blast.

That can be done during the cold and flu season when everyone is coughing and sneezing already and you have a prime secondary and tertiary infection path already going in your favor, as well as masking the early Ebola symptoms.

Glenn Ogoro

If we consider Ebola as a weapon of terror, then yes; it’s not likely. How about considering Ebola as a means to combat terrorism? After all, Ebola has all the spread characteristics which can be used to eliminate or weaken hostile or terrorist cells.

First, most terrorist cells now are of Muslim origin and maintain religious and cultural practices which include touching, kissing and washing of their dead. Since these cells by their nature are communal, there is a lot of targeted interaction between members of a cell, even when they are sick.

A simple prisoner exchange could be the link to introducing the virus into these extremist groups/cells. A few infected prisoners injected and left to harbor the virus for a few days right before release is an easy way to get the virus in these cells. New prisoners are usually the center of attention for a few days and constantly greeted with hugs, kisses, and other affectionate contact gestures. Spread.

When said prisoner gets ill; until there are the later signs of hemorrhaging, the virus can easily spread to internal and general caretakers, which I can assume will be a few, and from them to others. Multiplied spread.

Further spread will increase when the body is being prepared for burial (washing, kissing). Spread cycle.

Until the signs are noted by members of terrorist groups, the virus can easily spread rapidly and fast; engulfing a network in a matter of weeks. Even though the spread from one prisoner might not be that much, the impact will be major if considered through a group of released prisoners (as usual).

Early containment could be unlikely, due to the general opposition of western doctrines in these cycles. The forcing of extremist groups to change their practices could mean undermining their religious beliefs and accepting a “western” way, which may not be easily accepted.

In the event where the virus is detected early among members, the effects of panic and fear among a typically close-knit operation can still be deleterious, to the point of slowing or shutting down operations due to reduced interaction, and uncertainty among members.

Biowarfare has been going on for a very long time. In the dark ages, plague victims would be thrown into cities by catapult to break sieges. Smallpox infected blankets were given to Indians by British soldiers in the French and Indian Wars. China still has outbreaks from bio-weapons the Japanese used against them in WWII.

It wouldn’t take a Manhattan Project type effort to develop a bio-weapon and Ebola is so nasty to start with, it doesn’t need much in the way of weaponization. If someone is playing games, field testing this bug and getting their act together for a major attack somewhere in the world, it’s time to build a bunker.

Multiple viral agents have been classified by the CDC as potential weapons of mass destruction or agents for biologic terrorism. Agents such as smallpox, viral hemorrhagic fever viruses, agents of viral encephalitis, and others are of concern because they are highly infectious and relatively easy to produce. Although dispersion might be difficult, the risk is magnified by the fact that large populations are susceptible to these agents and only limited treatment and vaccination strategies exist. Although the risk of large-scale bioterrorism using viral agents is small, public health programs and health care providers must be prepared for this potentially devastating impact on public health.

The filoviruses, Marburg and Ebola, are classified as Category A bio-warfare agents by the Centers for Disease Control. Most known human infections with these viruses have been fatal, and no vaccines or effective therapies are currently available. Filoviruses are highly infectious by the airborne route in the laboratory, but investigations of African outbreaks have shown that person-to-person spread requires direct contact with the virus-containing material. To show you that Ebola can be spread by air and other directions we will publish three scientific Abstracts published in well known scientific institutions.

Lethal experimental infections of rhesus monkeys by aerosolized Ebola virus

Johnson E1, Jaax N, White J, Jahrling P, Int J Exp Pathol. 1995 Aug;76(4):227-36.

Abstract

The potential of atherogenic infection by Ebola virus was established by using a head-only exposure aerosol system. Virus-containing droplets of 0.8-1.2 microns were generated and administered into the respiratory tract of rhesus monkeys via inhalation. Inhalation of viral doses as low as 400 plaque-forming units of virus caused a rapidly fatal disease in 4-5 days.

The illness was clinically identical to that reported for parenteral virus inoculation, except for the occurrence of subcutaneous and venipuncture site bleeding and serosanguineous nasal discharge. Immunocytochemistry revealed cell-associated Ebola virus antigens present in airway epithelium, alveolar pneumocytes, and macrophages in the lung and pulmonary lymph nodes; extracellular antigen was present on mucosal surfaces of the nose, oropharynx, and airways.

Aggregates of the characteristic filamentous virus were present of type I pneumocytes, macrophages, and air spaces of the lung by electron microscopy. Demonstration of fatal aerosol transmission of this virus in monkeys reinforces the importance of taking appropriate precautions to prevent its potential aerosol transmission to humans.

Transmission of Ebola virus (Zaire strain) to uninfected control monkeys in a biocontainment laboratory

Jaax N1, Jahrling P, Geisbert T, Geisbert J, Teele K, McKee K, Nagley D, Johnson E, Jaax G, Peters CLancet. 1995 Dec 23-30;346(8991-8992):1669-71.

Abstract

Secondary transmission of Ebola virus infection in humans is known to be caused by direct contact with infected patients or body fluids. We report transmission of Ebola virus (Zaire strain) to two of three control rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) that did not have direct contact with experimentally inoculated monkeys held in the same room.

The two control monkeys died from Ebola virus infections at 10 and 11 days after the last experimentally inoculated monkey had died. The most likely route of infection of the control monkeys was aerosol, oral or conjunctival exposure to virus-laden droplets secreted or excreted from the experimentally inoculated monkeys. These observations suggest approaches to the study of routes of transmission to and among humans.

Lethal experimental infection of rhesus monkeys with Ebola-Zaire (Mayinga) virus by the oral and conjunctival route of exposure.

Davis K.J, Geisbert TJ, Vogel P, Jaax GP, Topper M,J ahrling PB. Lancet 1996 Feb; 120 (2): 140-55.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

The source of infection or mode of transmission of Ebola virus to human index cases of Ebola fever has not been established. Field observations in outbreaks of Ebola fever indicate that secondary transmission of Ebola virus is linked to improper needle hygiene, direct contact with infected tissue or fluid samples, and close contact with infected patients.

While it is presumed that the virus infects through either break in the skin or contact with mucous membranes, the only two routes of exposure that have been experimentally validated are parental inoculation and aerosol inhalation. Epidemiologist evidence suggests that aerosol exposure is not an important means of virus transmission in natural outbreaks of human Ebola fever; this study was designed to verify that Ebola virus could be effectively transmitted by oral or conjunctival exposure in nonhuman primates.

MATERIALS AND METHODS

Adult rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) were exposed to Ebola-Zaire (Mayinga) virus orally (N=4), conjunctival (N=4), or by intramuscular inoculation (N=1, virus-positive control).

RESULTS

Four of seven monkeys exposed by the conjunctival route, three of four monkeys exposed by the oral route, and the intramuscularly inoculated positive control monkey were successfully infected with Ebola-Zaire (Mayinga). Seven monkeys died of Ebola fever between days 7 and 8 post-exposure, but one of the monkeys given aggressive supportive therapy and a platelet transfusion; lived until day 12 post-exposure.

Belgian scientist and discoverer of Ebola, Peter Piot, knew everything about the virus but wouldn’t say publicly was a medical crime against Africa, because his country was involved.

CONCLUSIONS

Findings from the experimental study confirm that Ebola virus can be effectively transmitted via the oral or conjunctival route of exposure in nonhuman primates and absolutely can be used as a bio-warfare weapon.

Ebola Beyond Sierra Leone: A Nightmare might be unfolding in Mano River Basin

Koroma 2

An Ebola victim being carried away in Liberia.

If anyone thinks the Ebola Outbreak in Mano River basin is something that is a trifle, please let me confidently state to them that the ongoing disaster is far from being something to put on back-burner. This is a time for all residents therein to unite and step-up our guard!
The World Health Organisation (WHO) Spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic has now officially informed journalists on what many had suspected was the fearful realisation that the new outbreak of Ebola in Liberia with an index case of a 17 years old schoolboy, was not really ‘new’ after all. The outbreak never really ended in Liberia.

WHO Spokesman has now confirmed that genetic studies of the virus in the ‘latest’ outbreak in Liberia is identical to the one that used to kill in Liberia few months back and which is the same virus that continues to kill in both Sierra Leone and Guinea.

However, none (I repeat, NONE) of the Liberians now with new Ebola infection in Liberia ever travelled to Sierra Leone or Guinea. It means the virus has been right inside Liberia quietly all this time.

The WHO Spokesman is now saying the infection of the 17 years old boy was likely acquired from a ‘non-identified transmission within the community’ or from ‘a survivor still carrying the infection in other body fluids long after the blood tested negative for the virus’.

There is also an other possibility (so fearful to contemplate) that the virus has now modified itself so much so that it can delay the onset of symptoms in those it infects.

What do I mean by ‘delay the onset of symptoms’? Let me explain. Viruses can exist for stated periods in humans before they start manifesting sickness in the infected human. For example, the HIV virus can exist for years in a person before it causes the manifestation of clinical signs of HIV-AIDS.

Now, prior to this Outbreak, Ebola was known to manifest symptoms within 2 to 21 days of infection. This particular MRU outbreak had an average of 9 days between infection and symptoms.

So, if, as is now suspected to be scenario for ‘new index case’ of a teenage boy in Liberia, this MRU Ebola virus is now with the ability to exist for more than 21 days in a human before it manifests symptoms of Ebola sickness, then I can easily say we have a major situation on our hands in the MRU basin.

Add to this, the huge number of survivors living in MRU basin as possible carriers of the dreadful Ebola virus in body fluids like male semen or in placenta of foetus in wombs, we might have a serious nightmare unfolding in the Mano River Union basin.

Honestly, this is the time to rally around our various leaderships and do whatever we can to give undiluted support to the three Presidents. In Sierra Leone, the country is still under a State of Emergency that was declared by President Koroma NOT to deliberately subdue our political discourse but to subdue Ebola.

Let us put aside Politics for a while and re-focus our attention on combating Ebola. The alternative to ending the Ebola Outbreak in MRU basin is too fearsome to contemplate…. Too fearful to imagine.

The author is a trained medical doctor with an amazing versatility that makes her hold her own in many disciplines. Also a major Publisher and news journalist, Doctor Sylvia Blyden is a politician who has worked for the Sierra Leone Government as the first, and so far the only woman, to be ever appointed with Cabinet Rank to the Office of the President when she served as the Special Executive Assistant (SEA) to President Koroma for a period of two years.
           She gracefully resigned her position in October 2014. Doctor Sylvia Blyden, a member of the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) of Sierra Leone, remains to be one of the most trusted allies of the Sierra Leone President and she was part of his presidential delegation to the UN High level Ebola Recovery Summit held from July 9th to 10th in New York during which two days period, she served as an Adviser to His Excellency the President.
             As far as the current Ebola Outbreak is concerned, Dr. Blyden is noted as the very first Sierra Leonean to raise an alarm in May 2014 over unexplained strange deaths in Kissi chiefdoms of Eastern Sierra Leone; the deaths turned out to be from Ebola – just as she had expressed suspicion. To date, the good Doctor has continued to be an irrepressible voice in the fight against Ebola.
