Update on Fiji Story: Texas Couple Who Died in Fiji Emailed Relatives: ‘Throwing up for 8 Hours’
A Texas married couple who died while on vacation in Fiji sent emails about being violently ill before their deaths. However, the messages didn’t seem to indicate their lives were in danger.
...
We are both going to doctor now,” Michelle Paul, 35, wrote to her mother, Juliet Calanog, after they both arrived in the Pacific Island nation.

She said, “We have been throwing up for 8 hours. Dave has diarrhea. My hands are numb. We will text when we can.”

Yea I know, we have no idea what they (the couple in Fiji) DID have.

But they describe stage 3 symptoms, so... IF it was ebola, they could have been infected in Texas, traveled to Fiji, and died....

Who knows, maybe it is something even worse we still have no idea...

I think Ebola is really, really unlikely.

We now know all three died from internal hemorrhaging. Maybe they were intentionally poisoned with some sort of anticoagulant rodenticide.

All three?
Are you talking about the deaths in the Dominician Republic?
3 Americans die at same resort in Dominican Republic

I was talking about the two Texans, who left Ft. Worth Texas, and went to Fiji.
Yes five other people have been put in quarinteen but so far as I know they are still alive.

Could it even just be a case of food poisoning?

I just don't see Ebola being very high on the list of possible causes, even if some of the symptoms are similar to symptoms of Ebola. Fever and vomiting Vomiting and diarrhea can be caused by many diseases.

Well it could be, however, IF that is the case, then why have people who came into contact with this couple from Texas been put into isolation?

Update: Fiji's Nadi Hospital Ward In Isolation Mode

If you read you will find they STILL do not know what they died from.
...
The mininistry of Health and Medical Services, Police, other agencies and US authorities are also carrying out investigations into the mysterious deaths of the couple.
...
The couple were staying at the hotel after ariving in the country on May 22...
...
Mrs Paul died on May 25. Mr Paul died three days later at Lautoka Hospital.
It seems to be taking quite a while to find the cause of death...
I would not expect an extremly long time for poison to be detected...

I guess we'll see...

Meanwhile back in Africa: IFRC Says Ebola at Tipping Point in Congo With 2,000 Cases
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the world’s largest humanitarian organization, said the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has reached a tipping point with 2,000 cases.

“The numbers being reported have risen dramatically,” the IFRC said via Twitter on Monday. The organization wants to “reset” the Ebola response as case numbers ramp up.
WHO: One in four DR Congo Ebola cases could be going undetected
One-quarter of Ebola infections in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo's latest outbreak of the disease may be going undetected, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned.
Considering Ebola is now in a war zone, this is REALLY NOT good...

Child dies as Ebola outbreak spreads from the Congo to Uganda
...
Background: The WHO and DRC Health Ministry have had difficulty squelching the outbreak as a result of community distrust, armed rebel groups and violence against health workers.

What they're saying: "Though unsurprising, this is an unfortunate development that illustrates what we’ve long feared — that the deadly outbreak of Ebola in DRC may spread beyond borders and threaten other countries," said Jennifer Nuzzo, a senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. "While Uganda is quite adept at controlling Ebola outbreaks, batting Ebola in multiple countries is a much harder endeavor than one that’s contained geographically."
Ebola no longer confined to the DRC....

And yes, even our lame-stream media is reporting on this...from the NYT:
First Ebola Cases Reported in Uganda, in Spillover From Congo Outbreak
A 5-year-old Congolese boy who traveled with his family into Uganda has died from the Ebola virus, international health officials said on Wednesday — a day after the case was confirmed as the first appearance of the highly contagious disease outside the Democratic Republic of Congo since an outbreak began there a year ago.
So, with up to a 21 day incubation period, how many people were infected along the journey?

Update: Ebola Jumps Borders As Epidemic Rages On
Three cases of cross-border Ebola transmission have been reported in Uganda since the outbreak began in eastern Congo last year, according to the Financial Times. One of the victims, a five-year-old boy, has died of the disease while two of his relatives also tested positive.

On Wednesday, health experts in both countries were scrambling to understand how the boy's relatives crossed the border on June 9th, and who they may have infected along the way. The boy was taken to a Ugandan hospital after vomiting blood and exhibiting other symptoms, while two relatives of the boy also tested positive for Ebola. Uganda has been heavily screening visitors from Congo for signs of fever, and has vaccinated more than 4,700 health workers against the disease according to a joint statement by WHO and Ugandan officials.
Uganda’s health ministry said the boy’s mother, who is Congolese but married to a Ugandan and living in the Kasese district of Uganda, had travelled back to Congo to nurse her sick father, who subsequently died of Ebola. On returning to Uganda, the boy had started coughing up blood and vomiting and was taken to Kagando hospital where health workers immediately suspected Ebola.

A sample of his blood tested positive for Ebola and on Wednesday two of the boy’s relatives were also confirmed to have contracted the disease. -Financial Times

Over 2,000 cases of the disease have been recorded in the Congo over the last 10 months, with over 1,400 deaths since August. It's still the second most deadly Ebola outbreak behind the 2013-2016 West Africa epidemic which killed 11,310 people. While it took seven months for the outbreak to reach 1,000 cases - it took just three more months for that figure to double.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inli ... k=ZQMRzJSp
Efforts to contain the spread have been hampered due to the extreme turbulence in the region. In April, doctors and nurses working in the heart of the Ebola outbreak threatened to go on strike amid threats of violence and actual assaults. Many locals also think Ebola is a Western scam brought to the country by foreigners to make money off the local population.
o-kay....
As the Times notes, experts had previously warned that if Ebola jumped borders into a neighboring country, it would mark a serious escalation of a crisis that has proven incredibly difficult to manage.

According to microbiologist Peter Piot who helped discover Ebola in 1976, eastern Congo is an "extraordinarily difficult environment to control an epidemic because of armed conflict and community mistrust."

Meanwhile - guess which country the United States welcomed most of its refugees from in 2018?

Information complement on Congo:
Congo declares measles epidemic after it kills more than Ebola

DAKAR (Reuters) - Congo’s government has declared an epidemic of measles, which the latest health ministry figures show has now killed at least 1,500 people, over a hundred more than have died of Ebola.

While health officials have focused on the far deadlier hemorrhagic Ebola virus concentrated in Democratic Republic of Congo’s lawless east, some 65,000 suspected cases of measles have been reported across the vast central African country.

The health ministry revealed the measles figure when it declared the epidemic on Monday.

Medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Tuesday that 1,500 deaths from measles had been recorded in the first five months of 2019, the highest since 2012, which was the deadliest measles epidemic of the last decade.

Ebola has so far killed 1,390 people in Congo’s North Kivu province, the latest Congo health ministry figures show.

P. – S.
Uganda confirms first Ebola case outside outbreak in Congo

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — A child in Uganda has tested positive for Ebola in the first cross-border case of the deadly virus since an outbreak started in neighboring Congo last year, Uganda’s health ministry said late Tuesday, in a blow to efforts by health workers who for months sought to prevent contamination across the heavily traveled frontier.

The 5-year-old Congolese boy has been isolated with family members at a hospital in a western district near the Congo border, Ugandan Health Minister Jane Aceng told reporters. Two family members were being tested for Ebola after developing symptoms, with results expected on Wednesday.

The announcement puts new pressure on the World Health Organization to declare the Ebola outbreak — the second-deadliest in history — a global health emergency. The outbreak is unfolding amid unprecedented challenges of rebel attacks and community resistance in a region that had never experienced Ebola before.

Ebola outbreak: Uganda grandmother, 50, is latest to die
A 50-year-old woman infected with Ebola has died in western Uganda, a day after her five-year-old grandson died.

They are the first two cases reported in the country since the virus spread from neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo, where nearly 1,400 people have died.

Three suspected Ebola patients have also run away from an isolation centre.

The head of a major medical charity has called the latest outbreak of Ebola in central Africa "truly frightening".
Well, at this point, I think the ebola out break is beyond "not good."

Be careful skeptics...
Now is the time to start practicing agressive hygene IMHO, YMMV.

Meanwhile: Uganda bans public gatherings in Kasese district amid Ebola fears
...
The infections marked the first confirmed cross-border cases of the virus in the current epidemic, which was previously confined to the eastern DRC's North Kivu and Ituri provinces after emerging 10 months ago.

More than 2,000 cases have been recorded in the DRC since the start of the outbreak in August, the country's 10th to date, and more than 1,400 people have died.

An expert World Health Organization (WHO) committee will convene in the Swiss city of Geneva on Friday to weigh whether to declare the epidemic a global health emergency following its spread into Uganda. Such declarations almost always boost global attention and lead to an increase in aid.

Two previous WHO emergency meetings decided the outbreak was not yet fit for a declaration of global emergency despite being of "deep concern".

Lower respiratory infections
Tuberculosis

lschemic heart disease
Congenital defects
Stroke

It's really not a great country to be born in. Ebola is the least of their problems.

Uganda: Three Suspected Ebola Victims Escape From Kanungu Isolation Centre
Three suspected Ebola victims have escaped from the isolation centre at Kihihi Health Centre IV in Kihihi town council in Kanungu District in western Uganda.

They are Saddi Muhima, 46, his son Issa Muhima, 19 and Milton Nsenga, all from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The three were admitted in isolation when they presented with Ebola like symptoms shortly after arriving at Munyaga border crossing in Western ward in Butogota town council in Kanungu District from DRC on Wednesday morning.
Ebola spreads in Uganda—2 deaths, 27 in contact—as WHO calls emergency meeting
Local and international health officials are scrambling to smother a flare-up of Ebola in Uganda, which spread this week from a massive, months-long outbreak in the neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo. The outbreak has sickened 2,084 and killed 1,405 since last August.
...
Also on Friday, the WHO will reconvene an Emergency Committee to assess whether the outbreak now constitutes a “public health emergency of international concern,” or PHEIC. Declaring the outbreak as such would signal the need for international responses and likely lead to more resources in curbing the virus's spread.
...
North Kivu and Ituri sit on the eastern side of the country, bordering South Sudan, Uganda, and Rwanda. But despite the local challenges in disease response efforts, WHO officials have so far determined that the outbreak did not constitute a PHEIC. Friday’s meeting will be the third to assess a possible PHEIC status for this outbreak.
Well Rob, I guess it is just the devestating maner of death, and the aparent lack of security and or containment....

Some headlines....
It's not yet an international Ebola emergency: WHO declares
...
The World Health Organization on Friday decided not to declare an international emergency over Congo’s Ebola outbreak despite its spread to Uganda this week, concluding such a declaration could cause too much economic harm.
:shock:

Ebola crosses a porous border
...
Health officials have long feared that this outbreak of Ebola virus could pass over the porous border into Uganda. The border is over 500 miles long and many of the crossings are informal - sometimes just a couple of planks laid across a shallow river. An endless stream of traders, some balancing baskets of eggs on their heads or swinging chickens by their feet, moves back and forth across the border each day.

Ugandan medics now tackling Ebola say they lack supplies
...
Medical workers leading Uganda’s effort against Ebola lament what they call limited support in the days since infected members of a Congolese-Ugandan family showed up, one vomiting blood. Three have since died.

While Ugandan authorities praise the health workers as “heroes” and say they are prepared to contain the virus, some workers disagree, wondering where the millions of dollars spent on preparing for Ebola have gone if a hospital on the front line lacks basic supplies.
Good question....

Meanwhile: Burial of Ugandan Ebola victim shows flash of confrontation
KARAMBI, Uganda (AP) — At last the pickup truck carrying the Ebola victim’s coffin arrived. The woman’s relatives were relieved. But a small group of young people hissed in anger.

They watched the burial team carefully put on protective suits and gloves, itching for a fight. They grabbed the rope meant to lower the coffin into the grave and used it to block the truck’s path. One brandished a stick.

“You will not leave this place if you do not bury the coffin and fill the whole place with soil,” he said, wary of contamination if the grave’s contents were left exposed. For the handful of young men, fear of contact with the deadly virus was high.
...
Burying her took all day and into the night as health workers pulled together the means to do it safely. The need for safe burials conflicts with traditional customs of having loved ones wash and dress the corpse. In Congo, that has led to trouble.

Kenya on high alert after suspected Ebola case in Kericho
Health authorities in Kericho County are on a red alert over a suspected case of Ebola.

This was after a patient exhibited suspected symptoms of the haemorrhagic fever at Kericho County Referral Hospital.

County officials on Monday said the woman had travelled from Malaba, a town in Busia County on the border of Kenya and Uganda, to see her spouse.
DRC --> Uganda --> Kenya
...
“On further interrogation, she admitted to having travelled from Malaba where she alleges to reside to see her husband who works in Kericho.”
...
Blood samples from the patient were sent to the Kenya Medical Research Institute (Kemri) in Nairobi for further analysis.

“The preliminary test results are expected to be ready within the next 12 to 24 hours,” the statement read in part.
...
Kenya has not had an Ebola case before.
Okay, I highlighted that part for a reason....anyone remember that couple who died in Fiji?

Contrast the above with this headline:
Investigation into American couple's mysterious death in Fiji could take weeks, officials say

Weeks?
To check on something that _should_ take around 12 to 24 hours to give preliminary results?
Seriously?

It may take 12 to 24 hours to test specifically for Ebola but several weeks to test for everything, which I'm sure they're doing.

And I don't think the CDC is concerned about Ebola in this case. In fact, I think you're the only person concerned that this is Ebola.

Can't test for it yet as it's too new. They died of what I'm dubbing the 'Ameridiot Virus'. Symptoms include a smug superiority and a complete lack of knowledge of local customs. Victim's usually just bleed out on the street, but occasionally deep machete-like wounds are found on the victims who, more often than not, come from the Southern portion of the USofA. :)

Meanwhile: Ebola fears worsen after more than 300,000 flee Congo over violent ethnic clashes: report
The threat of the second deadliest Ebola outbreak continues to grow in central Africa as more than 300,000 people have fled the Congo since early June because of ethnic clashes, reports say.

The Congolese are fleeing after a violent week left at least 161 people dead in the northeastern province of Ituri as clashes between farming and herding communities reached a climax, Reuters reported Monday citing local officials.
...
Health officials fear that reports of killings, kidnappings and sexual violence could prompt even more people to leave the Congo - including those who might be carrying the Ebola virus.

Faced with a horrible death from bleeding out through every pore in my body always makes me want to do sexshual violence. Just sayin. I guess some idiots really do think they can 'fuck it to death'.

City of Goma braces itself for Ebola outbreak
He emerges surrounded by the orange fencing, delineating an isolation area. The man stops to check his phone, before a woman in a full protective outfit – including a mask, goggles and white Wellington boots – ushers him towards an examination room. The doctor greeting the man sits behind glass.
....
Goma’s Ebola treatment centre has been open since February, before which the space was used for cholera patients. There are only 22 beds – 12 for suspected cases, while the other 10, for confirmed cases, lie empty.

The space is just 600sq m (roughly 6400 ft^2), though a new centre, which will be more than 16 times its size, is under construction.
Thats over 100,000 square feet....
Looks like they are expeting some business.....

Okay, so what is the big deal about Goma?

Well, last January, folks were very worried about ebola getting to Goma.

The Ebola outbreak in Eastern Congo is moving toward a major city. That’s not good.
....
Goma is a major transportation hub, with roads and highways that lead to Rwanda. “These are crossroad cities and market towns,” Salama added. People there are constantly on the move doing business, and also because of the insecurity in North Kivu. Ebola in Goma is a nightmare scenario WHO and DRC’s health ministry are scrambling to prevent.

Christ on a fucking crutch but that is funny!

"Miles and miles of trainloads of Dicks waiting to be sucked. Sucked by YOU! Only here in FuckSuckNPokeWorld. And screw the bitch with the masculine name. Evan Rachel I'm so neeeeet I have to have three names Cunt.

And she's really not all that attractive. Hell, I wouldn't fuck her with Shemps cock.

Shemp would, I'm betting. And of course, Charlie's 'ad 'er. That alone makes it unsuitable for any... future... consideration.


Season 3.

Indeed. I've watched the sneeker and it sucks donkey taint.

As Ebola Continues to Spread In Congo, Uganda Watches Nervously
...
Ready or Not

The WHO said authorities had identified 112 people in Uganda who may have come into contact with Ebola, and quarantined some of them. Uganda’s science and drug agencies, looking to pre-empt a large-scale outbreak, also approved three new experimental treatments for the virus on June 18. But Uganda’s Health Minister said unofficial footpaths on the border with Congo–which people from both countries use regularly to visit family–will make containment difficult, and some Ugandan hospital workers say they lack the resources to tackle Ebola if it comes.

Broad Threat

The WHO has warned that the world is entering “a new phase” where epidemics of deadly diseases are the “new normal,” with the agency tracking more of them than ever before. Congo’s Ebola outbreak comes just two years after the worst one in history ended in West Africa in 2016. As climate change and political instability drive populations to move around more, it’s getting harder to contain diseases. As Uganda prepares for the current threat, doctors are urging all governments to follow their lead for the future.
Good time to start practicing agressivly safe hygene folks...
Stay safe!
