Ebola Outbreak: At Least 100 Die in West Africa

Richard Engel, NBC News, April 14, 2014

More than 100 people have died from the latest Ebola outbreak in West Africa. With no cure or vaccine, it is one of the most deadly of viruses, killing between 60 to 90 percent of those infected. Heath officials in Conakry, the capital of Guinea, have set up isolation centers and are screening at the airport.

Dr. Jagatic described it as the biggest known Ebola outbreak an urban area.

Health officials do not expect the virus to go global and stress that Ebola is not easy to catch, requiring direct contact with an infected victim’s bodily fluids.

    It’s just a matter of time before some bantu brings this deadly virus to the states.

      A “refugee” no doubt.

      Ebola is just another euphemism for AIDS. Both these “diseases” do not normally spread AT ALL. It takes truly sick behaviors to allow them to spread without which the “disease” does not exist. That is to say, there really is no such thing as AIDS (slow death) or Ebola (fast death) among anyone who doesn’t commit rape 50 to 100 times a month, do needle drugs every day or live in a sewer of collective feces.
      If it wasn’t HIV, or the Ebola “virus”, it would be something else that does not exist without these behaviors.

      • dukem1

        I agree that Ebola, and especially Aids, can be minimized thoroughly by common-sense behaviour…
        It’s evolution – natural selection – at work, when these types get it and spread it.

        How come no one ever brings this up?

    • wildfirexx

      I certainly hope not!
      Have you ever noticed, that in these desperate situations in the third world, it’s always the White folks who are first to come to the rescue and aid of these third world peasants, showing compassion, expertise and understanding, and generously giving financial aid in the billions.
      But Yet, at the same time… it’s always the white folks who are the first to get mugged, raped, beaten and accused of racism and discrimination around the world!
      What Gives ?

      • SaggyGenes

        Pathological altruism. The aid and compassion we give them is another sign of our superiority and makes them hate us more.

    • One of them already did bring something almost as nasty: Lassa Fever. He had traveled from Chicago to Nigeria for his parents’ funeral in 1989, and died within a week of returning to the US.

      The real danger is that an infected human traveler could inadvertently spread one of these diseases to a new animal reservoir in some other part of the world. Lassa Fever virus is carried by rodents, so there seems no reason why it could not be permanently spread to any other continent which has rodents, which means all of them except Antarctica.

    I really flourish in Stone Age tribal African villages where everyone has sex with each other, both voluntarily and by force. Signed, Ebola virus

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    More than 100 people have died from the latest Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

    ______________________________________________________

    That’s it? Only a 100 people? I was hoping for a few hundred thousand, even millions.

    • The Final Solution

      We could only be so fortunate.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Well atleast we know what will be a popular black name this decade

      • dukem1

        E’bola. She lookin’ fine with her fried chicken corsage at the prom.

    • Anna Tree

      Ebola kills quicker than people can spread it in rural settings. But in an urban setting (notably airports, malls, hospitals etc), the victims count could be in the thousands and possibly exponential (mass epidemics)…

      • Whitetrashgang

        This is the most heartwarming thing I have read since the little train that could.

        • Anna Tree

          One Ebola carrier in a plane bound to an international airport and there is a risk that 80% of the world could died… Frightening…

          • Anon

            Not possible, even if weaponized. Disease just doesn’t work that way.

          • Brutus

            There was a Tom Clancy novel about Islamic terrorists genetically engineering a virus based on Ebola and influenza, that had the lethality of the former and was airborne like the latter. But you’re right, Ebola won’t suddenly infect everyone on earth.

          • Anna Tree

            Please tell me if this is incorrect but that is what I gather:

            Although “the potential for widespread EVD epidemics
            is considered low due to the high case-fatality rate, the rapidity of
            demise of patients, and the often remote areas where infections occur,” it seems to me that this is regarding rural areas in Africa: if one infected person arrives in an international airport, the contamination could spread in many directions, more airports and other public places like malls and supermarkets:

            The ebola virus can live from three to ten days outside a body and in late 2012, Canadian scientists discovered that the deadliest form of the virus could be transmitted by air between species[132], transmission through oral and conjunctiva exposure is therefore more than likely.

            And although we are told that “The quick onset of symptoms from the time the disease becomes contagious in an individual makes it easy to identify sick individuals and limits an individual’s ability to spread the disease by traveling.”, we are also told that “The incubation period for Ebola can be as short as 2 days or as long as 21 days.”!

            I wish you are right, but I think we just don’t know how the disease would work in our western world.

          Nasty, nasty, nasty!!!
          And truly witty and amusing.

      • Anon

        Only in those places where a few hundred people get together for a group buttfuck at the airport, mall, hospital whatever….which is to say, no place. Those things do happen, of course, lots of places….but the behavior involved does not allow that group of people the ability to build or maintain things like malls, airports and the like.

    • foundingstockcracker

      Just think, we wouldn’t have to be exposed to swollen bellies on those chillens in the “Save the Chillens” adds anymore.

    • dukem1

      it’s probably 10 times that…I wouldn’t look to Africa for accurate record keeping.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Behold, the face of the destroyer that could kill millions, we are all one incubation period away from dying of a Satan bug like this one.

    • Fair Dinkum

      Hi, there! I’m Ebola! Guess what I’m gonna do to you?

    • Romulus

      If it weren’t for the fact that so many Genomics live in the South of that continent, it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest if the angel of death (ebola) burned through that entire continents population.

      • Whitetrashgang

        It would be like Christmas , Payday , Lotto win and insurance scam payoff all in the same day.

      • Anon

        The “germanics” would only be touched to the extent they were having sex with the blacks. It is highly likely such a disease would wipe out the black population and leave the white one untouched for the most part. Of course, it would be a very short time before the blacks would hunt whites to rape them (more than they do normally) believing that was a way to cure the disease.

        • Romulus

          Unfortunately, rape of the Afrikaner, seems to be a negroid hobby. The punishment should be the immediate administering of a lead pill.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Zombies now your talking.Zombies with HIV even better.

      That’s not saying much….the infection rate of HIV among whites who engage in normal sexual behavior is statistically zero. Occasionally, you run into an unlucky dentist…..much more likely a closet homo who lies right up until the point he’s made aware of the fact that he can go to jail for “accidentally” infecting new partners.
      AIDS might involve HIV but its not caused by HIV. It’s caused by aberrant (and evil) sexual perversions like rape, homosexuality and pedophilia and needle drug use. AIDS is rampant among blacks because these behaviors are universal among blacks. These behaviors ARE the disease.
      If we discovered a pill that would absolutely sanitize anyone who took it of HIV, another pathogen would take its place. Ebola is just another pathogen. It’s just better at being AIDS than HIV is.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        You really don’t know what a filo-virus is, nor do you realize that infected people also leave everything they touch white hot with virus. Just a few virons on your skin is enough to sentence you to a horrible death. People have caught it and died despite taking extensive measures to avoid exposure. The Ebola virus’ only weakness is that it does what HIV does and dissolves it’s victims from the inside out within days. It can go airborne and it also mutates rapidly. HIV of course can take months, even years to show ANY symptoms. But make no mistake, this virus if it got into a western country could kill more people than a nuclear attack. There is only one way to stop it, and that’s quarantine. AIDS is cause by HIV, and more to the point, that virus like Ebola also attacks the brain.

        • LovelyNordicHeidi

          You wrote exactly the comment that I wanted to write to Anon!

      • The professional doctors and biologists disagree with you.

  • tlk244182

    Well, since “health officials” say it’s not easy to catch I’m not worried in the least. Btw, is vaporized sputum such as might occur in a violent sneeze considered a bodily fluid? Just askin’.

    • IstvanIN

      Hmmm, it spreads the flu and colds, but not HIV. I suppose it depends on how durable outside of the body Ebola is.

      • Fair Dinkum

        According to Wikipedia:

        “The [Ebola] virus has been confirmed to be transmitted through body fluids. Transmission through oral exposure and through conjunctiva exposure is likely[18] and has been confirmed in non-human primates.[19] Filoviruses are not naturally transmitted by aerosol. They are, however, highly infectious as breathable 0.8–1.2 micrometre droplets in laboratory conditions;[20] because of this potential route of infection, these viruses have been classified as Category A biological weapons.”

        Class A biological weapons. Okay, now I don’t get any sleep tonight.

        • Anon

          Yeah….what that means is, potentially, were you to spend lots and lots of money growing a huge amount of live tissue infected with the virus (viruses are not alive and instantly destroyed outside living cells), you could, theoretically spray it over a small area and infect anyone unlucky enough to directly inhale the vapor.
          Or, much more reasonable, easier and far cheaper, you could just drop a pipe bomb that costs about $10 to make and have exactly the same kill effect.

        • foundingstockcracker

          Could we consider those huge drops of spittle flying of those massive African flap lips “other than aerosol?”

        • The Russians violated treaties they had earlier signed by weaponizing Marburg.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Read about this site in Kazakhstan called Stepnogorsk. where Soviet bio-warfare scientists created 60 weaponized pathogens, and loaded them into re-entry vehicles for ICBM’s and SLBM’s. There is no way you could immunize people against 60 diseases at one time, some of which are totally synthetic and naturally occurring diseases engineered to be fatal to 100 percent of infected persons. It’s madness, because this would probably wipe out ALL human life on the planet. Needless to say the Kazakhs rightfully so did not want this abandoned bio-warfare lab to remain unknown in the West.

          • They produced a multidrug-resistant strain of bubonic plague. I regard that as utterly evil.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Absolutely, and heaven only knows how many countries are creating untreatable designer diseases. Nuclear weapons are bad enough, this is even worse.

  • IstvanIN

    100 out of how many hundreds of millions is hardly an emergency. Or a great loss in Africa where at least 300 babies were born to replace them.

  • JSS

    Where can I send donations to the Ebola virus?

  • So CAL Snowman

    Seems like a legit way of cleaning out our once American cities. Just drop some ebola in a vat of McDonalds french fries in Atlanta and America will be 90% White in no time.

      The secret service will probably pay you a visit for that comment.

      • Romulus

        See the new York daily news on Mr cross over the Kansas shootings. They are indeed making a list and checking it twice.

      • So CAL Snowman

        I can only hope. I will make them the “not so” secret service

      See….talk like that is the reason why I eat at Burger King.

        I’ll stick with homemade or the little Italian place down the street.

  • The Final Solution

    Surprised they’re not bringing them over here like all those “AIDS refugees”. Well, the devil has work for idle hands. I’ve heard this disease is horrific to put it mildly. I hope it burns through Africa like wildfire.

    • sdzsdfsdf

      I hope it burns through you too.

      • The Final Solution

        Get lost troll.

  • The Final Solution

    I think I saw a Zulu infected with this stateside. I was sitting at a coffee shop and this black guy with a bandana on his head suddenly burst through the door, all bug-eyed like he just came from feasting on a white woman. He was making these growling sounds like some hungry wolf and he just sort of stood near the entrance darting his eyes wildly at the people inside. Then he went back the way he came. Straight out of a horror movie.

      Do you read Sutter Cane?

  • Ahnenerbe

    Ebola is nothing the bubonic plague killed around half the population of Europeans

    • SaggyGenes

      Nor compared to the plague of Africans currently infecting the Western world.

      • Ahnenerbe

        He regarded slavery as “a crime whose shortsighted folly was worse than its guilt” because it “brought hordes of African slaves, whose descendants now form immense populations in certain portions of the land.”[159] Contrasting the European conquest of North America with that of South Africa, Roosevelt felt that the fate of the latter’s colonists would be different because, unlike the Native American, the African “neither dies out nor recedes before their advance”, meaning the colonists would likely “be swallowed up in the overwhelming mass of black barbarism.”[160]

    I wish to dissent from the sadistic glee with which others here have welcomed this painful disease as a method of negrocide.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      It’s the kind of plague found in the Book of Revelations, one that would if governments and health authorities do not step in could wipe out 80 or 90 percent of the world’s people. No, viruses like Ebola are a threat to us all, even though the natural host is a bat.

      • I know it is a bat, but how do you?

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          Because I came across an article that was published about Ebola and where it comes from. It comes from a bat native to the area. Worse, in Australia another native bat species was found to carry a deadly virus that strikes down horses and humans, it can jump from bats to one species, then another. My parents are former medical professionals, now retires. My dad showed me how to use the light microscopes at his lab, and my mother actually operated electron microscopes before I came along.

          • There was an outbreak of that while I was Down Under in 1997-1998.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Whenever something changes in the environment or our behavior, microbes ruthlessly takes advantage of it. Most infectious diseases in humans and animals are the result of bacteria and viruses jumping from one species to another, the rest are caused by microbes all animals and humans carry because they are the natural host.

      • David Ashton

        I agree about its deadly and universal seriousness.

    • sdzsdfsdf

      You might want to disassociate from Amren altogether then, since they seemingly have no problems allowing people who cheer for millions to die of disease posting here.

      • David Ashton

        Well, I did separate from this website some time for several reasons, including one related to your point, but returned when the posts improved and I had an opportunity to express my opinions to more reasonable readers. You must take up your complaint, Mr Sdzsdfsdf, with the Mdsatroero.

        • sdzsdfsdf

          The comments on this site went downhill when they introduced disqus and allowed people with accounts to post just about anything they wanted with no moderation. I still very much enjoy reading the original material Amren puts out, but the comments are by and large an eyesore. They were fine a few years ago, but now is a totally different story.

          • David Ashton

            Advocating painful genocide does AmRen no favors and I assume that is why Spartacus was banned.

          • sdzsdfsdf

            I’m not familiar with him- what happened in his case?

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    You do realize even the flu, yellow fever and many other viruses can also appear in a hemorrhagic form.
