All you need to know about the Ebola virus Where does Ebola come from? The first known incidents of the Ebola virus were in 1976. There were two simultaneous outbreaks in Nzara in Sudan and Yambuku in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). The name of the Ebola river near Yambuku was given to the new epidemic. Outbreaks have mainly occured in remote villages in Central and West Africa, close to tropical rainforests. The current outbreak, which began in March 2014, is the largest in history. More than 3,000 people have died in West Africa, Over 2,000 in Liberia more than 700 in Guinea, and as many as 620 in Sierra Leone. A small number of cases have appeared in Nigeria with one in Senegal and one in the US. A nurse in Madrid Spain is the first reported incident in Europe. Ebola is described by the World Health organisation (WHO) as “one of the most virulent viral diseases known to humankind.” There are five distinct species of Ebola and the survival rate ranges from 25 to 90%. There is no licens ...
So Obama will send 4,500 troops to West Africa to aid the people with Ebola, but he won't send troops to the Middle East to slaughter Isis.
US Bio-warfare Laboratories in West Africa Are The Origins Of The Ebola Epidemic Professor Francis A. Boyle interviewed by Aggeliki Dimopoulou Could Ebola Have Escaped From US Bio-warfare Labs? American law professor Francis A. Boyle, answers questions for tvxs.gr and reveals that USA have been using West Africa as an offshore to circumvent the Convention on Biological Weapons and do bio-warfare work. Is Ebola just a result of health crisis in Africa – because of the large gaps in personnel, equipment and medicines – as some experts suggest? That isn’t true at all. This is just propaganda being put out by everyone. It seems to me, that what we are dealing with here is a biological warfare work that was conducted at the bio-warfare laboratories set up by the USA on the west coast of Africa. And if you look at a map produced by the Center of Disease Control you can see where these laboratories are located. And they are across the heart of Ebola epidemic, at the west coast of Africa. So, I think thes . ...
GOOD MORNING FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ENEMIES: I woke up this morning thinking about West Africa . when this idea (thought) entered my mind - 'in the very near future, it will be announced that the largest oil and gas deposit is found off the coast of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone'. I am also thinking - AND THIS IS TOTAL SPECULATION - that the current flu season will be the worst, in the history of our world. The basis for my speculation is - the ongoing Fukishima neuclear disaster which have poisoned the Pacific ocean, compromised and destroyed the immune system of many children (clouds formed over the Pacific deposit water (rain) on land). This could explain the rash of children illnesses. !!! (AGAIN, I MUST STATE - THIS IS TOTAL SPECULATION, ON MY PART, and I would hate being right) ... I think that combining the flu virus with compromised and damaged immune system is a recipe for disaster... could be worse and more fearful than the E. virus... Anyway, I am gonna continue praying for all those Black/A .. ...

First Baptist Church of Collingdale has coordinated a Liberia Relief Effort that has been mostly in-house. We do not solicit funds outside of the church for our general fund. Some have asked about our Ebola Relief Effort in cooperation with our sister-church Lighthouse Baptist Church of Liberia, Inc. We send funds on a monthly basis to our partners in Liberia. 100% of gifts received go directly to a grass-roots effort to fight Ebola. If you feel led to participate, tax-deductable gifts can be sent to FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH 814 Andrews Avenue Collingdale, Pa. 19023. Checks should be made out to 'First Baptist Church of Collingdale' with a notation on the check or envelope (Liberia Project). There are no administrative fees for this project. The next support gift will be sent after November 1st. If you send a return address with your gift, we will send you a receipt for your taxes. Most of all.remember to pray for West Africa.
Kudos to friend and colleague John McCallum for his leadership and the vision for missions of Hot Springs First Baptist Church. For those of you that were with us at River of Life yesterday, Pastor McCallum's experience referenced in this blog is an example of the very thing I was referring to regarding our response to world events. Are we going to join the crush of voices that are full of panic, fear, and anger? Or are we going to be faithful witnesses of the Kingdom of God, singing the songs of Zion in a foreign land? If you expressed an opinion about the recent decision of Hot Springs Baptist and their missions trip to West Africa, read this for clarity. This will not be the last time that Christians are going to have to make hard decisions about being on mission for God.
Sherlon Stroude 4 hrs (NaturalNews) There is growing speculation that the United States may be responsible for the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa, specifically Liberia and Sierra Leone, which are two countries known to host US biological warfare labs. In a recent interview with RIA Novosti, Francis Boyle, a professor at the University of Illinois College of Law, speculated that perhaps the virus might have been purposefully introduced as a way of testing and developing a bioweapon. "US government agencies have a long history of carrying out allegedly defensive biological warfare research at labs in Liberia and Sierra Leone," he said. "This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is now the point agency for managing the Ebola spill-over into the US." He went on to say, "Why has the Obama administration dispatched troops to Liberia when they have no training to provide medical treatment to dying Africans? How did Zaire/Ebola get to West Africa from about 3,500km away from w ...
NEWS UPDATE: The president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, has appealed to all countries to help fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
Ebola Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?: Scientists Allege By Dr. Cyril Broderick, Professor of Plant Pathology October 19, 2014 - "Liberian Observer" Are bio weapons being tested on Africans. Reports have linked the Ebola virus outbreak to an attempt to reduce Africa’s population. Liberia happens to be the continents' fastest growing population. Dear World Citizens: I have read a number of articles from your Internet outreach as well as articles from other sources about the casualties in Liberia and other West African countries about the human devastation caused by the Ebola virus. About a week ago, I read an article published in the Internet news summary publication of the Friends of Liberia that said that there was an agreement that the initiation of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was due to the contact of a two-year old child with bats that had flown in from the Congo. That report made me disconcerted with the reporting about Ebola, and it stimulated a response to the “Friends of ...
WASHINGTON - The United States will issue strict new guidelines telling American health workers to cover their skin and hair when dealing with Ebola patients, a top health official said on Sunday, while some of the dozens of people being watched for possible exposure to the virus are expected to be cleared. In Texas, a lab worker who spent much of a Caribbean holiday cruise in isolation tested negative for the deadly virus and left the Carnival Magic liner with other passengers after it docked at Galveston early on Sunday morning. The new guidelines for healthcare workers and the precautions taken for the cruise passenger reflected widespread anxiety over Ebola in the United States, including calls from some lawmakers for a travel ban on West Africa. The worst outbreak on record of the virus has killed more than 4,500 people, mostly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf urged stronger international action to control the epidemic, saying on Sunday the disease was unl ...

By Todd Beamon, Newsmax Democrats are now sounding more like Republicans on the Ebola crisis, with candidates in critical races calling this week for travel bans to avoid being tied to yet another Obama administration debacle as Election Day nears. "It is just common sense that we need a travel ban from West Africa," Democratic pollster and analyst Doug Schoen told Newsmax on Saturday. "And Democrats have realized that in tight Senate races that hang in the balance it is common sense, not partisanship, that gives them the best chance of getting elected." This is particularly acute "in a year where the president's job approval is at or below 40 percent in swing states," Schoen said. Perhaps the biggest flip-flop came on Friday, when North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan called for a West African ban — two days after dismissing it as a way to contain the deadly disease.
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean didn't mince any words when asked about Texas Gov. Rick Perry's continued insistence that we need a travel ban on flights from West Africa to stop Ebola from spreading to the United States.

At Brooklyn Center memorial service for Thomas Eric Duncan and Ebola victims in West Africa
The ebola contagion in West Africa is, without a shadow of doubt, a man-made epidemic unleashed in a psychological warfare operation aimed at legitimizing Western military intervention in the phony war against terrorism. The underlying aim is foreign corporate control over mineral resources, oil fields and critical infrastructure along with a Western-led development program to recolonize Africa under US-British mastery.. The net result is that if African leaders fail to oppose this morbid and exploitative invasion, radical Islamic forces can be expected to mobilize a jihad against the invaders. The war for metals could result in more casualties than the Blood Diamond conflicts of the past decade. Africa is symbolized by green, yellow and black, but iron ore is the color of blood
They’re riding high again, that ruthless gang of neo-liberal interventionists who dismembered Yugoslavia in the 1990s and whose underlings introduced Factor-8 HIV-infected blood plasma to cause an AIDS crisis across the war-torn Balkans. Today the target is Africa and their newest bio-weapon of choice ebola. Indicted here are the Four Horsemen of pestilence, famine, war and death: Tony Blair, George Soros, Anthony Lake and Bernard Kouchner. Posing as saviors of humanity, these arch-criminals are charging into Africa in the service of the diabolical union between the British Crown and House of Rothschild. The devious plan to release the Zaire ebola strain into West Africa is aimed at a takeover of the rugged mineral-rich interior of Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ivory Coast. Whoever wins the struggle for mining rights, which promise super-profits far in excess of the Blood Diamond conflicts, will be positioned as middleman between the global economy’s biggest steelmakers, particularly those in Chin ...
To be clear, Ebola deserves to be a big news item. But we should worry about it ravaging West Africa more than the small number of US cases.

America’s top infectious disease expert on Sunday again acknowledged that the safety protocols used for the nation’s first Ebola patient were inadequate, and that the Obama administration overstated the country’s readiness for the deadly virus, amid concern that Americans have already lost faith in the government. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told “Fox News Sunday” that the adopted World Health Organization protocol for handling an Ebola patient was better suited for field work than confined hospital care. As a result, two nurses at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas were infected with Ebola while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian national who arrived from West Africa with the virus and later died. “It was very clear … that is not the optimal way,” Fauci said. Fauci said he wasn’t sure how nurse Nina Pham became infected, but it was “likely” because “she was not completely covered.” As many as 4,500 pe ...
The Dallas hospital that treated Thomas Eric Duncan had a version of the Ebola-screening device used by the military in West Africa sitting on a shelf, but FDA guidelines prohibited staff from using it on the patient.
In a draft document, the World Health Organization has acknowledged that it botched attempts to stop the now-spiraling Ebola outbreak in West Africa, blaming factors including incompetent staff and a lack of information.In the document obtained by The Associated Press, the agency wrote that experts should have realized that traditional infectious disease containment methods wouldn't work in a region with porous borders and broken health systems."Nearly everyone involved in the outbreak response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall," WHO said in the document. "A perfect storm was brewing, ready to burst open in full force."The U.N. health agency acknowledged that, at times, even its own bureaucracy was a problem. It noted that the heads of WHO country offices in Africa are "politically motivated appointments" made by the WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Luis Sambo, who does not answer to the agency's chief in Geneva, Dr. Margaret Chan.

Rant: Ebama is a freakin’ whack job! I know most of you know that Obama is a fool already so why the rant about Obama. Thirty countries so far have various bans on people traveling from West Africa to hinder the spread of Ebola! Ebama actually wants to bring it in to the US! Ebama wants to allow people with Ebola to travel here for medical treatment. Ebola has a 70% fatality rate how stupid can a person be! The goal should be to contain not spread! We Americans take pride in our medical systems and we think they are pretty safe. Well they are not as safe as we think The following blurb I did not make up: “Thousands of people die every year due to diseases caused by infections. According to one of the latest reports issued by the US government, of these hospital-related infections are the sixth leading causes of death in the United States.

The Ebola virus disease is now a worldwide concern with its severe and fatal effect on humans. The first Ebola outbreak occurred in the remote villages of Central Africa, near tropical rainforests. Recently, however, it has plagued West Africa and has found its way to urban and rural areas. The international community is gearing up for an encompassing response to contain and stop the disease. There are already reported deaths in the United States of America and in parts of Europe caused by the rare virus disease. The Philippines, no less, is susceptible to the Ebola outbreak owing to the fact that there are millions of Filipinos living and working all around the world. In response to the threat of Ebola, the Philippine government is implementing a 21-day screening for Filipinos coming from Ebola-hit countries in West Africa before they woul ...

Re Post: ReBuild Iligan EBOLA.health care info from yahoo news... ..Nurses in safety gear got Ebola, why wouldn't you? By CONNIE CASS | Associated Press – 10 hours ago.. =.. WASHINGTON (AP) — How come nurses wearing protective gear can catch Ebola from a patient, but health officials keep saying you almost certainly won't get it from someone sitting next to you on a plane? First, the odds of an Ebola-infected seatmate in the U.S. remain tiny, even after the news that a nurse coming down with the disease flew commercial across the Midwest this week. Then there's the extra screening that's begun on airline passengers arriving from West Africa. But even if you were to draw that unlucky spot next to a traveler with a yet-unknown infection, the disease experts would consider you at little or no risk. Here's why: THAT PERSON ON THE BUS OR PLANE MIGHT NOT BE CONTAGIOUS YET People infected with Ebola aren't contagious until they start getting symptoms, such as fever, body aches or stomach pain, research shows ...
MEMO FROM WATERLOO Denial and Disconnect Add to Toll of Ebola in Sierra Leone By ADAM NOSSITER OCTOBER 16, 2014 WATERLOO, Sierra Leone — At first, the chief said nobody was sick in his community. Then he said that if anybody was sick it was because of witchcraft. Then he acknowledged that health workers were removing several suspected Ebola patients every day. In fact 15 corpses had been taken in less than a week from the community, but the chief did not admit that. Persistent denial has been harmful to the fight against the virus. It stretches from the village to the state house, and it echoes into the circles of some of the international agencies now thick on the ground in Sierra Leone and the other Ebola-afflicted nations in West Africa. That tendency to minimize the damage being caused by the disease — the hardship and death it is inflicting — has been perceptible since the outbreak was first discovered in March. But the denial’s effect is to prolong the suffering. There is a disconnect betwee ...

According to AFP, they also said that they were ready to use individual sanctions against hostile actors who “threaten the peace, stability or security of Libya or obstruct or undermine the political process”.Globe & Mail reports Canada has sent the World Health Organization 800 vials of an experimental vaccine to counter the spread of Ebola in West Africa, where it has already caused over 4,500 deaths. British pharmaceutical giant Glaxosmithkline (GSK) had announced on Friday that an effective vaccine could not be developed and tested before the end of 2016.
The primary responsibility of the leader of “any” country is to safeguard the wellbeing, security, and health of the citizens of their country. Current polls indicate that the American people have lost confidence in the elected leader of the United States, because the Obama administration is not taking the necessary steps to restrict potentially infected passengers from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in West Africa from entering the United States, in order to safeguard the lives and security of American citizens from being infected with the Ebola virus. The occupant of the Oval Office responsibility is to protect the health and safety of all Americans from being infected with diseases being carried by millions of infected Illegal aliens flooding across the wide open southern border. To date 22 countries have imposed travel bans on passengers with passports from West African countries (including the African nations of Togo, Gabon, the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Rwanda, Chad, South Sudan, Namibia, Angol . ...

You certainly won’t hear this news from Washington or its media lackeys (goodness no, it’s not politically correct). So here it is: Islamic burial rituals are contributing tothe Ebola outbreak. According to AINA, a great many Ebola victims are Muslim (some 73% of Sierra Leone’s population, 85% of Guinea’s, and 13% of Liberia’s), and what Muslims do with their dead could be part of the reason why health officials are having such trouble containing the disease in West Africa. According to Sharia law, when a Muslim dies, relatives of the deceased wash the body in a bathing ritual known as Ghusl, but not before compressing the abdomen to rid the body of any fluids still therein. A dead body must be washed in order for it to be considered pure and thus make a successful ascent to Paradise. Once the body has been purged of remaining fluids and bathed thoroughly, relatives cover it in a linen shroud. However, it is important to note that a dead Ebola victim is potentially more dangerous dead than alive ...

The public continues to be reassured that Ebola is not a problem for the US, but CNN reports that President Obama has appointed an Ebola Czar. The Czar is not a medical person but an insider lawyer who served as chief of staff to Vice President Biden. Little wonder Ebola conspiracy theories are spreading faster than Ebola. And as far as any of us knows, the conspiracies could be true. University of Illinois law professor Francis Boyle, an expert of the perfidies of the US government, reminds us that Sierra Leone and Liberia, the countries most affected by the Ebola outbreak, are two West African countries that host US biological warfare laboratories. Professor Boyle asks how the disease, which is mainly associated with equatorial Congo, reached West Africa thousands of kilometers away. Washington’s response is itself peculiar. The Obama regime sent 4,000 US soldiers to West Africa to fight Ebola. Soldiers don’t have training or equipment with which to combat Ebola. Why expose 4,000 Americans to an epi ...

Ebola virus disease(EVD) or Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) is a disease of humans and other primates caused by an ebola virus. It is a rare but deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside the body. The virus damages the immune system and organ of the body as it spreads through the body. Finally it causes the blood clotting cell to fall down leads to severe, uncontrolled bleeding. Ebola virus kills up to 90% of people who are infected.The 2014 Ebola outbreak is the largest largest Ebola outbreak in the history and the WHO has declared an international health emergency. According to WHO more than 2400 people have died in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Senegal in West Africa. CDC is working with other US government agencies, the WHO, and other international partners and has activated its emergency operations center to help coordinate technical support and control activities with partners.
Breaking News! Sierra Leone Scientist Takes Lead in the Search for a local Cure for Ebola! Njala University has joined country's like China, Japan, Germany, USA, among others, to change the apaulling situation in West Africa by developing a local cure for the Ebola epidemic disease currently ravaging the subregion. Dr Aiah Lebbie a Lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at NUC has been engaged in the production of Nanopaticles that can be utilized in solving several medical problems including Ebola. These nanopaticles are known to deactivate the replication of bacteria micro organisms in the human bodies by thwarting the production of enzymes. Dr. Lebbie a scientist at Njala University believes in the work of what scientists refer to as Nanopores which disrupts the mutation process of a virus. Njala University is now entering the testing stage of its home developed Ebola cure which has been highly commended by Haverford University.

Look...Ebola has been a world, public health "crisis" since it emerged in 1976. Close to 10,000 people in Africa from the Sudan to most notably West Africa have contracted at least 1 of the 5 strains of this disease since then. It is probably the killer in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone at present. The World Health Organization is predicting 10,000 NEW cases worldwide by December if there is no suitable GLOBAL response to Ebola within 60 days. The US has very little interest in ANY infectious disease until it reaches our shores and neither does the FDA which by the way is a government run agency and a tremendous bureaucracy! Now the scramble has begun for control over this recent "US outbreak. " Control over regulatory agencies like the CDC, NIH, FDA and TSA is suddenly under way.

The woman, a private contractor for the Pentagon, told first responders she was recently in West Africa. According to Pentagon sources the woman boarded the shuttle bus shortly before 10 a.m. to head for a change of command ceremony in Washington for the Marine Corps Commandant. The woman suddenly fell ill, got off the bus then passed out and vomited in the Pentagon parking lot. She was taken by ambulance to a medical facility for treatment including a blood test.

No boat with West Africans in Tobago: The National Operations Centre has also dismissed as untrue rumours of a boat from West Africa docking in Chaguaramas. Read More:
'By one estimate, some 200 million city dwellers produce food for the urban market, accounting for 15–20 per cent of total global food production… In West Africa, around 20 million households (20 per cent of the urban population) are engaged in urban agriculture. They supply 60–100 per cent of the fresh vegetable market in those cities. (Cohen and Garrett 2009, 9) This is a foundation for domesticating food security, and offers a palpable rejoinder to those who fetishize agro-exporting as the solution to global hunger. It should be a key part of a counter-narrative – one that also underscores the importance of regenerative local farming practices as solutions to the combined crises facing the planet. Not an easy task, but easier as conditions deteriorate?' McMICHAEL - 'HISTORICISING FOOD SOVEREIGNTY'
As the U.S. military rushes to combat Ebola in West Africa, soldiers are receiving on-the-fly instructions on how to protect themselves against the deadly virus.
A lot of theories and sources claim EBOLA is a US funded disease to Kill a certain part of population of the world. They raise some really good point. They have more troops going to west Africa to help, do you think its actual help or they have different motives. What do you guys think ??? What is this Rolla of Ebola ?

A Message from Gorilla Doctors on Ebola and Eastern Gorillas: We share the world's deep concern regarding West Africa's Ebolavirus outbreak and the devastating impact the virus is having on people, communities and nations. We are also concerned about the separate Ebolavirus outbreak occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Gorillas are highly susceptible to Ebolavirus; indeed, many thousands of western lowland gorillas have likely perished in past Ebolavirus outbreaks in central Africa. Mountain and Grauer's gorillas are among the world's most endangered primates. With just 880 mountain gorillas and only a few thousand Grauer's gorillas left in the world, an outbreak of a disease such as Ebolavirus could have a devastating impact on the survival of the species. If an Ebolavirus outbreak were to occur within or very close to the range of the mountain or Grauer's gorilla, from a conservation standpoint it would be important to consider all measures for assisting their survival. All options, includ ...

Ebola is NOT transmitted through air, water, or food. The ONLY ways you can get Ebola is by touching blood or bodily fluids of someone infected with the virus, touching objects (like needles) that have been contaminated with the virus, or by touching infected animals. Yes there have been a few cases in the US, but the virus still does NOT pose a significant risk in the United States, so stop freaking out and maybe pray for the thousands of people in West Africa who ARE being affected by it.
The First thing Ron Klain "Ebola czar." Needs to do is SHUT THE FRONT DOOR and Put in place a Passport Check and detain anyone from these infected countries. Period! That freakin simple! W.H.O. The World Health Organization implemented orders to close bounders in every country in Africa over a month ago. You cant fly from West Africa to North, South or Eastern African countries. No way no how, but you can fly to the USA? SHUT IT DOWN NOW. Second, 48 hours ago the The World Health Organization revealed that 1 in 20 Ebola infections has an incubation period longer than the 21 days. HERE THAT . 95% of Ebola incubations occur from 1 - 21 days and 5% of Ebola incubations occur from 21 - 42 days. That is Fact and That's the Quarantine time they are using in all 3 African Countries. SO CHANGE IT The first round of quarantine family members will be released in the morning on the 21st day. So you need to act quickly and make the right decisions.
I really am trying to understand. Please, I don't want to disagree or be disagreeable. I really want to understand but no one on this topic is making any sense. Use logic and listen what he is actually saying then explain. Again, maybe it is just me. If it is, please logically explain. I am not asking for jokes, this is way too important. I am not looking to blame anyone, or divide. Please no comments on blame as at this point it doesn't matter. What matters is stopping the spread of this horrible disease. If someone understands what they are all saying - PLEASE CLARIFY. HOW DOES KEEPING THE TRAVEL FROM WEST AFRICA HELP KEEP THE US SAFE? It seems as though they will decide how many innocent American lives can be lost before it is a problem.

In case anyone has been watching too much "news" lately. The population of this planet is over 8 billion. Now let's round WAY up, and say that 10,000 people worldwide (read as: Africa) have been recently infected with ebola, that means that 0.0125% of the population has been infected. Not a lot. Now people are talking about closing the borders. You are stupid. There have been literally HUNDREDS of flights carrying THOUSANDS of people to this country from west africa. and there has been ONE person found to be infected. Adding the two people who were quite literally rolling in this mans infected bodily fluids, that brings the current infection rate in the US up to 3. Math lesson number 2: if there are 3 infections with a population of over 310 million people, there is a 0.09% infection rate in this country. Also, not a lot. This WEEK alone, 282 people were diagnosed with the flu in the US. Last year, over 26,000 people died from alcohol related diseases. For christ's sake, 48 million people got foo ...

Facing renewed criticism of his handling of the Ebola risk, President Barack Obama will make Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, his point man on the U.S. fight against Ebola at home and in West Africa. Klain will report to national security adviser Susan Rice and to homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco, the White House said.
U don't have to be intelligent to know stuff...its called having common sense...now a Doctor who worked in Africa contracted Ebola & came back into the US & was quarantined by da CDC...they stated he was cured from da infection... How & there is no vaccine??? Now they stated another man who visited West Africa came back to the US with Ebola & died (the set up)...while being treated in the hospital, two nurses contracted Ebola...The government knowing this allowed them to travel within the country (the scare)...now let's go back...in 2009 H1N1 (swine flu) appeared in the US...No one had ever heard of this type of flu, there wasn't a cure & people were die'n...the virus was airborne & transmitted thru contact...The government came up with an vaccination with in a few months...the media went viral with information regarding the virus and precautions were taken...okay now back to Ebola, Ebola is not like H1N1, Ebola is laboratory engineered so in order to contract it, it must be injected...so how can the gove ...

Whoopee! The President has announced a new CZAR for Ebola . Is it a medically trained person who knows and understands what needs to be done? Someone who has handled emergency situations like 9-11 before? NO, NO, NO He has appointed a political flunky who works with VP Biden's office He is a COMMUNICATOR, someone who can explain to us dummies why the President is making stupid decision. He will be able to pacify all who have questioned all the decisions that have been made concerning his handling Ebola . No longer will we hear the head of CDC try to explain why we did not ban all Visas ,passports and travelers who visited the hot spots in west Africa. I am thrilled and comfortable now as you are I am sure.

Dr. Eric R. Pianka calls for depopulationWhat is noteworthy is a statement by an award-winning Texas scientist who in 2006 advocated for the extermination of 90% of the Earth’s population using an airborne Ebola virus.During his acceptance speech at Academy of Science award ceremony, University of Texas professor Dr. Eric R. Pianka - now often nicknamed Dr. Doom - sparked controversy. John Ballantyre writes on News Weekly that renowned science writer and editor Forest M. Mim III was present at the event and reported there were a lot of strange occurrences in the bi-weekly journal Citizen Scientist.“Something curious occurred a minute before Pianka began speaking. An official of the Academy approached a video camera operator at the front of the auditorium and engaged him in animated conversation. The camera operator did not look pleased as he pointed the lens of the big camera to the ceiling and slowly walked away”, Mims reported.“This curious incident came to mind a few minutes later when Professo ...

FOOD FOR THOUGHT ... Aliyu Nuhu Posted: Nigerian government had joined Cameroon by adopting the easy approach to end the Boko insurgency by entering a truce. This is a mistake Nigeria will regret. When considering amnesty,let us be guided by history. Those that said raw force never succeeded in subdueing militancy exposed themselves to some historical naivety,perhaps they didn't look back to know how Tamil Tigers of Siri Lanka were destroyed. The war broke in July 1983 and ended in May 2009. There were four unsuccessful peace attempts until 18th May 2009 when the 54years old Tamil Tiger's leader Velupillai Prabhakaran was killed in an ambush by Siri Lankan special forces. That effectively brought the war to an end. The Siri Lankan government won a war against a group identified as terrorist by 32 countries including US and Canada. The Angolan conflict fought for 27years starting 1975 and ending 2002 when MPLA achieved victory by killing the UNITA recalcitrant leader Jonas Savimvi. Before then, the war saw ...

Has ANYONE run a simulation through Plague, Inc starting with a virus in West Africa to see how long it will take to kill the whole world?
A misused gift that Native cultures of Turtle Island shared centuries ago with the world may finally be recognized for what tradition has always known it was. Tobacco is rising again as medicine. And it is being enlisted to combat some of the most fearful ailments on the world’s health horizon. Much in the recent news is the experimental drug ZMapp, the only drug currently available to fight Ebola. But tobacco may also be a key in creating a gel that may prevent HIV transmission, in growing vaccines against cholera or cervical cancer and even in mass-producing human collagen to repair bones and joints. These are just a few examples of the research underway around the world using tobacco. Tobacco has always been considered a medicine in traditional culture. A gift of the Creator, it has been used prayers or as an appropriate “thank you” to elders or others for knowledge or skills shared. “Tobacco, in its pure form, is medicinal. It is one of the four sacred medicines,” said Derek J. Bailey, forme ...
Ok, since BO won't issue a travel ban on flights from West Africa….I suggest all the planes fly into DC and he be required to greet each passenger as they depart those planes….just my suggestion!!
The good news is that with a 20,000 troop military presence in West Africa, not only will they be able to help contain Ebola, but they'll be able to keep the Chinese in check from getting a hold of all the natural resources there.
Dear whoever, West Africa is not a country. It is a region in the Western part of Africa. It is made up of many countries and Ebola is in only 3 of those countries. Please educate yourself...so you can stop the nonsense. Thank you!
If all the planes coming in from West Africa are safe...I say let's prove it...let's reroute them thru DC and let our president and Congress greet each of them with a big hug and a sloppy wet kiss...
When it's a matter of life and death.. Drastic measures need to be taken, another case of Ebola found in the US.. We quarantine people after the fact, but is it time we become proactive and quarantine an entire country and/or nation and cut off flights to and from West Africa... We are not in a movie folks, this is so much bigger than anything else in the world.. There are no credits coming up on your screen! Your thoughts...?
Here's the million dollar question of the day.. Suppose you are at the airport, and you are seated next to a man that says he has a fever and not felling well. Then tells you he just flew in from west Africa. Would you pray for the man, or run away. Be honest.
Pentagon police have shut down a building entrance and a portion of the south parking lot because a woman was sick and told emergency personnel that she had recently been to West Africa. The woman was on a Metro bus, and transferred to a shuttle bus taking guests to a change of responsibility ceremony for Gen. Joe Dunford, who is taking over as commandant of the Marine Corps. She got off the shuttle before it left the Pentagon parking lot and then vomited.
Not only is the Ebola crisis continuing to degrade, but the optics of how the White House has handled the situation are getting worse by the day too. A new report published at Breitbart shows the Obama administration started expediting visas from West Africa in August as the Ebola was (and still is) raging out of control with a 70 percent mortality rate. According to the report, the man who died from Ebola in a Texas hospital after visiting Liberia, had his visa approved in the same month visas were being streamlined.
Our men and women in the military should not be sent into West Africa and exposed directly to this virus no one has enough knowledge on how it is transmitted. They are volunteers to fight wars not be guinea pigs for our president.
I've now seen 3 "Ebola is a hoax" posts on my timeline. Sorry guys, I must have missed all the pics from your recent research trip to West Africa, but obviously you've checked and double checked your facts. I mean, you'd have to be 100% certain to make or even share such a claim, wouldn't you? Because, if you were wrong, you'd be refusing to acknowledge the deaths and suffering of thousands, and denouncing the efforts of those risking their lives to treat and contain a deadly disease. And that would make you a pretty horrific human being now wouldn't it?

What is the objective of "tracking" 800 airline passengers on "Ebola" flights? Wait until they are symptomatic and infectious..to do what? If wearing hazmat suits is an "abundance of caution", why not have that same "abundance" with people traveling to the US from West Africa? The appointment of an Ebola czar tells us that the Administration has no confidence in the CDC. Like appointing a "Defense" or "State" czar. The number one job of the new Ebola czar: Shift the blame for the crisis from Obama and the CDC to evil Republicans ahead of the midterms.fz

Last but not least, the APPEARANCE of this Ebola “pandemic” (should Americans not catch on) will be used to scare the countless millions into taking an “Ebola vaccine” which in reality is the pandemic. Already they have started with stories of how it has been brought to the U.S. and has appeared in Dallas, how white doctors were cured but black infected are not being allowed to be treated, etc. ALL that will do is make blacks STRIVE to get the vaccine, because it appears that the “cure” is being held back from blacks. They will run out in droves to get it and then there will be serious problems. With all we have seen revealed about vaccines this year you would think we learned our lesson. All I can do is hope so, Because they rely on our ignorance to complete their agendas. Ask yourself: If Ebola really was spread from person to person, instead of controlled spread through vaccination – then WHY would the CDC and the US Government continue to allow flights in and out of these countries with ...

Response to Sen. Inhofe's Political Gimmick on Ebola: While Senator Inhofe and the rest of Congress have been on vacation, customs and health officials at airports across America have stepped up the Ebola screening program. In America, more veterans died from suicide this week than people who were infected with Ebola. Yet again, the Oklahoma press bought in to Mr. Inhofe's political gimmick to get his name in the paper as if he's a soldier in fighting something scary. He isn't. First, even if he were correct that we should ban flights from West Africa he's the very last person in the US Senate that needs to be sponsoring the bill; 97% of the bills with his name fail. Moreover, Congress is actually on vacation all this month so if, indeed, this were the threat he's describing his position is reduced to, "you know that imminent emergency you all should fear? I'll introduce a bill next month some time." Source: he's dead wrong. I agree completely with Sen. Tom Coburn who said that he isn't worried at ...

Has Nigeria fallen this low from its leadership even in West Africa? We used to chuckle at the propensity of our French neighbors to take their orders from France. Now, it appears Nigeria has been gradually sucked into this whirlpool, and taken its humble place in a hierarchy that starts from Elysee Palace, through some Presidential Villa in N'Djamena and may be even Shekau's dingy tent in his little Borno caliphate before getting to Abuja.

Concerning the banning of flights to and from the infected countries in West Africa: The Obama administration refuses to countenance such a move, with the CDC’s Frieden flatly calling it “wrong”: "A travel ban is not the right answer. It’s simply not feasible to build a wall—virtual or real—around a community, city, or country. A travel ban would essentially quarantine the more than 22 million people that make up the combined populations of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. When a wildfire breaks out we don’t fence it off. We go in to extinguish it before one of the random sparks sets off another outbreak somewhere else. We don’t want to isolate parts of the world, or people who aren’t sick, because that’s going to drive patients with Ebola underground, making it infinitely more difficult to address the outbreak. . . . Importantly, isolating countries won’t keep Ebola contained and away from American shores. Paradoxically, it will increase the risk that Ebola will spread in those .. ...

"And so it is very important for us to understand that the investment we make in helping Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea deal with this problem is an investment in our own public health. This is not simply charity -- although obviously it's important that America takes the lead in the humanitarian crisis that's taking place there -- but it is also probably the single most important thing that we can do to prevent a more serious Ebola outbreak in this country is making sure that we get what is a raging epidemic right now in West Africa under control. So for that reason last night I had a call with Prime Minister Abe of Japan to solicit greater support for the international effort. This morning I spoke with Chancellor Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Renzi of Italy, President Hollande of France, as well as David Cameron, the Prime Minister of Great Britain to make sure that we are coordinating our efforts and that we are putting in a lot more resources than, so far at least, the international community ha ...

The largest Ebola outbreak in history is being held responsible for sickening more than 6,500 people in West Africa and more than 3,000 deaths, according to the World Health Organization. But what is Ebola, and what are the risks?
Dear Avaazers, Ebola could threaten us all, and the most urgent need to stop it is for volunteers. If just 120 doctors among us volunteer, it will *double* the number of doctors in Sierra Leone. Other volunteers - in health, sanitation, logistics - can help too. This is a call to serve humanity in the deepest possible way, to accept serious risk for our fellow human beings. Click to learn more, and show our gratitude to those making this powerful choice: Three weeks ago, hundreds of thousands of us went offline to fight climate change. This week, we're going offline to help stop Ebola. The Ebola virus is spiraling out of control. Cases in West Africa are doubling every 2-3 weeks and the latest estimate says that up to 1.4 million people could be infected by mid-January. At that scale, this monster threatens the entire world. Previous Ebola outbreaks have been repeatedly contained at small numbers. But the scale of this epidemic has swamped the region's weak health systems. Liberia has less than 1 doctor f ...

WND recently reported the World Health Organization, in a largely overlooked media advisory email, admitted there are some circumstances in which the current strain of Ebola in West Africa can be transmitted through coughing or sneezing. “Theoretically, wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently, could transmit the virus – over a short distance – to another nearby person,” the WHO Ebola situation assessment said. “This could happen when virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing (which does not mean airborne transmission) onto the mucus membranes or skin with cuts or abrasions of another person ...
Why call up a Guard/Reserve unit to head to West Africa instead of sending an active component Army or Navy unit?
Ebola update.this is kind of long but the situation warrants it. Each day upon arising I am greeted with news of yet another case of Ebola or an Ebola related medical error and each day at sunrise I can feel a growing panic in American society. It doesn’t matter that the flu kills more people than Ebola or that talk show hosts are capitalizing on the disease in order to raise ratings. The news and entertainment media has devoted all of their resources to getting the latest scoop on a disease in which there really isn’t much news in the United States. The real story likes in West Africa, that’s where they need medical help, supplies, money and facilities. If we can stop the disease there, we can keep it from getting a foothold here. Still another problem lies with the mass media. It used to be that news was easily distinguishable from opinion and sensationalistic talk but now the lines have blurred and the rushed average TV viewer accepts it all as news or fact (If you want the latest facts on the Da ...

Ok my last rant for the day. Because we have not banned oncoming flights from West Africa we have the following problems: the obvious increase of risk to Americans, including health care workers, the stock market is tanking, ( I am not a bank), the plane that the 2 nd nurse traveled on has been taken out of service. This will disrupt some flights , inconvenience many people and create unnecessary costs and concerns. WTH is wrong with this picture.
United Methodist Communications, Chocolate Moose Media and iheed have collaborated to produce an animated video for use in West Africa that helps dispel myths about how Ebola is spread and promotes prevention of the disease. The Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation is committed to spreading more information about the current West African Ebola outbreak and would like to invite you to watch the video below and share it to your friends!
Since we are not prepared for Ebola, I believe we should temporarily restrict travel from the Ebola-ravaged countries. The only two people that have the authorization to restrict travel from West Africa are Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS) and President Obama himself. The CDC can only recommend things, but has no authority.

People are getting Ebola in West African countries, and in the US. There is a lot less water and distance between West Africa and Southern Europe than there is between West Africa and the US. How many people are getting sick in Spain, France, Italy? None? Why not?
People in West Africa have managed to limit Ebola's spread on the continent to five countries - and two of them appear to have snuffed out the disease. The developments constitute a modest success in an otherwise bleak situation. West African officials credit tighter border control as the best weapon against Ebola.
Questions and Answers about Ebola and Pets The ongoing epidemic of Ebola in West Africa has raised several questions about how the disease affects the animal population, and in particular, the risk to household pets. While the information available suggests that the virus may be found in several kinds of animals, CDC, the US Department of Agriculture, and the American Veterinary Medical Association do not believe that pets are at significant risk for Ebola in the United States . How are animals involved in Ebola outbreaks? Because the natural reservoir host of Ebola has not yet been confirmed, the way in which the virus first appears in a human at the start of an outbreak is unknown. However, scientists believe that the first patient becomes infected through contact with an infected animal, such as a fruit bat or primate (apes and monkeys), which is called a spillover event. Person-to-person transmission follows and can lead to large numbers of affected persons. In some past Ebola outbreaks, primates were ...
Ancient African terracotta portraits 1000 B.C. to 500 B.C Recent discoveries in the field of linguistics and other methods have shown without a doubt, that the ancient Olmecs of Mexico, known as the Xi People, came originally from West Africa and were of the Mende African ethnic stock. According to Clyde A. Winters and other writers (see Clyde A. Winters website), the Mende script was discovered on some of the ancient Olmec monuments of Mexico and were found to be identical to the very same script used by the Mende people of West Africa. Although the carbon fourteen testing date for the presence of the Black Olmecs or Xi People is about 1500 B.C., journies to the Mexico and the Southern United States may have come from West Africa much earlier, particularly around five thousand years before Christ. That conclusion is based on the finding of an African native cotton that was discovered in North America. It's only possible manner of arriving where it was found had to have been through human hands. At that p ...

Schools have shut down, elections have been postponed, mining and logging companies have withdrawn, farmers have abandoned their fields. "The Ebola virus ravaging West Africa has renewed the risk of political instability in a region barely recovering from civil war", United Nations officials said Tuesday, hours after the World Health Organization reported that new cases could reach 10,000 a week by December — 10 times the current rate. The head of the new Ebola Emergency Response Mission, Anthony Banbury, told the Security Council that none of the three most heavily affected countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea — is adequately prepared. Only 4,300 treatment beds will be available by Dec. 1, according to current projections, and even those would not have an adequate number of staff members. The acceleration of new cases, if not curbed, could easily overwhelm them. Mr. Banbury painted a picture of substantial need. Only 50 safe-burial teams are on the ground, he said, but 500 are required. The ...
How is Ebola spread? It is spread through close contact with blood and other bodily fluids. The virus is not spread through the air; simply being in close proximity to someone (in an airplane, for example) is not enough to put you at risk. Five American aid workers – three physicians, a nurse and a cameraman hired by NBC News - were infected while working in West Africa. What exactly was that cameraman doing if it can only be contracted through blood and other bodily fluids.

EBOLA, EBOLA, Where art thou my Ebola? So Ebola is this virus in West Africa that has a 70 to 90% (depending on who you talk to) kill rate. Ebola ranges from highly contagious to not that contagious according to many experts, but the empirical evidence proves otherwise – its actually highly contagious and I’ll get back to that. One thing is for certain, there is no known cure for this virus and it is deadly. Basically, you have to ‘ride it out,’ and hope like *** your body develops the necessary anti-bodies to survive or you’re going to die. When someone does survive, which is rare, they can try give that person’s blood to an infected person (if the blood type is the same of course) through a transfusion to transfer the anti-bodies. Otherwise, there is no cure… Mmm. Guess all countries around the world would want to ban flights from West African then, right? Wrong. The USA, in its infinite wisdom under the fledging, pro-Muslim leadership of Barack Hussein Obama, has decided that banning fl . ...

Comments and testimony regarding Ebola preparedness...budget cuts do hurt everyone... .if you actually ask the CDC, as the Senate did in a recent hearing... Dr. Beth Bell, director of the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases testified that the budget cuts allowed the epidemic to explode in Africa. "If even modest investments had been made to build a public health infrastructure in West Africa previously, the current Ebola epidemic could have been detected earlier, and it could have been identified and contained." Or you could ask NIH Director Francis Collins... "NIH has been working on Ebola vaccines since 2001. It's not like we suddenly woke up and thought, 'Oh my gosh, we should have something ready here.' Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would've gone through clinical trials and would have been ready." Clearly, these budget cuts have stymied the U.S.'s response to the cri ...
The Bahamas is not ready for Ebola. America is not prepared for Ebola. There are shortages in personal protective equipment (PPE) internationally. The average person who is in contact with a presumed case of Ebola has to change PPE seven times. We only have experimental treatment for Ebola. We don't have enough cases in the USA or West Africa to discuss efficacy of therapy. I have discussed what I believe will be the best treatment policy for the Private sector of the Bahamas. There are some harsh realities that we will have to face. Are we trying to contain the virus or are we trying to treat the virus? What is the risk of transmission to the local healthcare worker? Realize policies and procedures are changing constantly, because we are in uncharted waters. Both the US and Bahamas. Realize we have one private institution and one public institution. We are not America. This has the potential to close down institutions if Bahamians believe there is an Ebola patient in any institution. There wo ...

The African Screaming Eagle Virus This is a re-post from September 30, 2014 after The Washington Times announced that the 101st Airborne was being deployed to fight Ebola in West Africa. At the time of my original article I had a strong sense Paul Harvey hadn’t finished The Rest of the Story about the 101st Airborne’s real mission, and it’s only getting stronger… You might be wondering why I would think there’s something else going on with this entire situation, and I don’t mean for this to be a criticism of the president – just an observation. I have watched every White House daily press briefing, and have studied the president in depth. He has a pattern of saying things to misdirect those he considers to be enemies. When President Obama makes broad or general claims about what something is or will be the opposite is often true, but these statements are made with such conviction that he’s rarely challenged by the media or his supporters. When it’s proven to be something other than t ...

New Ebola update. American health officials promise Ebola will never become an epidemic in the United States. But it could end up a national scourge in another way: by forcing up the price of chocolate. The two largest producers of cocoa beans—the magic ingredient that makes chocolate chocolate—are Ivory Coast (also known as Côte d’Ivoire) and Ghana, which combined provide about 60% of the world's supply. Neither country is suffering an Ebola outbreak, but they’re in the same part of West Africa that includes Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, which are basically ground zero for the killer virus that has claimed more than 4,000 lives so far. Nigeria, which accounts for another 6% of the world’s cocoa beans, has had roughly two dozen confirmed cases of Ebola inside its borders. Cocoa production hasn’t shut down, but Ivory Coast has sealed its shared borders with Liberia and Guinea, constricting the flow of some workers who travel into the country to harvest beans. A trade group called the World ...
Ebola has unearthed hidden racism and xenophobia. How can America ban flights from West Africa. And did I hear South Africans say similar?
Stop Ebola at its source. Suspend common carrier flights ( not charter flights ) to US airports from West Africa. When a single Hamas missile landed within a mile of Ben Gurion Airport, President Obama ordered all US airlines to suspend service to Israel to protect US citizens. Don't we need protection from a killer virus the President said will never reach America?
Ebola: How To Protect Yourself From Virus Most of ebola's 4,300 victims have come from West Africa, however, British experts say the UK must also be prepared. Here are a number of ways people can help protect themselves from contracting the virus. :: Hygiene is extremely important. Wash your hands frequently or use an alcohol-based sanitiser :: Keep hands away from the face :: Avoid contact with the blood and body fluids of anyone, especially someone who is sick, as it is through these fluids, such as vomit, blood and saliva that ebola is passed on :: Avoid handling items that have been touched by that person or any of their body fluids :: Do not touch the body of someone who has died from ebola. :: The World Health Organisation says any areas that person may have had contact with, such as bed linen, should be disinfected :: Do not touch bats and non-human primates or their blood and fluids, and do not eat raw meat prepared from these animals :: Avoid travelling to countries where ebola is rife, such as L ...
UPDATE: Ebola Patient Zero now identified as Thomas Eric Duncan. The Ebola outbreak is raging throughout West Africa.

Health Ministry: Poland 'ready for Ebola' - 14.10.2014 - Poland's deputy health minister says the country is ready to treat Ebola patients coming in from abroad, as the EU prepares to discuss possible screening for the virus at borders. (Photo top: Especially prepared equipment has been added to a ward at the Hospital for Infectious Diseases in Warsaw in preparation for Ebola case.) Minister Igor Radziewicz-Winnicki told Polish Radio that “if a patient with Ebola were to get to Poland, all the responses will take place in accordance with procedures guaranteeing safety.” Poland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs estimates that there are around 220 Poles resident in countries in West Africa where the threat from Ebola is greatest. There are around 200 Poles working in three missions in Nigeria, five Polish missionaries in Sierra Leone, and four with the UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia, says a ministry statement. The Health Ministry has been in discussion with ten hospitals which are being suitably prepare ...
Okay, ebola ... I'll finally tap on this issue since it's a topic that seems to be permeating every social outlet. Years ago, when I first heard of it, some information was circulated that has since been proven to be untrue. Seeing articles now repeating this incredibly outdated and inaccurate information for the purpose of sensationalism and driving traffic to websites and media publishers is downright shameful. The virus lives in bodily fluids as long as the fluids are moist and within a normal habitable temperature range for mammals. It is not airborne (outside of droplets, obviously, even when the host is deceased). It's been around for at least a couple decades, and if it was the population killer it is being painted out to be, it would have already decimated entire countries in West Africa. It's a badass killer contagion, no doubt, but it's nothing new in the history of the world (black plague, yellow fever, and a slew of other known fatal epidemics). Do not believe the hype. Don't think that becaus ...
Dear Supreme Leader Obama, what reason on earth are you not suspending visas from West Africa? Are you aware there is a Ebola epidemic raging there?

Dr. Thomas Frieden, head of the CDC, sounds much like Susan Rice telling us a movie killed our people in Benghazi! Frieden sounds much like Baghdad Bob!

LASG REPORTS 84 PERCENT THIRD QUARTER BUDGET PERFORMANCE, 86 PERCENT CUMULATIVE THREE-QUARTER PERFORMANCE “We will continue to focus on activities that create economic opportunities”, says Governor Fashola The Lagos State Government Friday returned an 84 percent third quarter Budget performance for the 2014 Budget with an 86 percent cumulative or aggregated performance for the first three quarters of the year covering from January to September. Against the backdrop of the very high targets set for itself, the cumulative performance, according to the State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola SAN, still falls short of Government expectation. He noted, however, that even at that it was, “a tough act to follow”. Briefing newsmen at the Lagos House after the Third Quarter Review of the Budget, Governor Fashola said even if the administration is not where it wants to be yet, by many measures the performance is a tough act to follow in West Africa, if not the whole of Africa, adding that the manifestations o ...
