Ebola Victim Who Sparked Fears of a Worldwide Outbreak Was American

James Nye, Daily Mail (London), July 29, 2014

The Ebola victim who sparked fears that a historic outbreak of the disease could spread globally was an American citizen, it was revealed last night.

Patrick Sawyer died this week after becoming noticeably ill on a flight from Liberia in West Africa, where the worst ever outbreak of Ebola is gathering pace, to the city of Lagos in Nigeria.

His case sparked alarm across the globe because he was able to board an international flight while carrying the incurable disease–potentially infecting other passengers who could fly across the world in a nightmare scenario for health experts.

Patrick Sawyer, 40, was planning to return home to Coon Rapids, Minnesota, to be reunited with his children for two of his daughters’ birthdays in August.

But his death in Lagos, Africa’s most populous city, has health workers scrambling to trace those who may have been exposed to him across West Africa, including flight attendants and fellow passengers.

His devastated wife, Decontee Sawyer, 34, shudders when she thinks how close Sawyer came to returning home to the States for his daughters’ birthdays carrying the dreaded virus.

‘It’s a global problem because Patrick could’ve easily come home with Ebola,’ Decontee said to KSTP. ‘Easy. Easy. It’s close, it’s at our front door. It knocked down my front door.’

The risk of travelers contracting Ebola is considered low because it requires direct contact with bodily fluids or secretions such as urine, blood, sweat or saliva, experts say. Ebola can’t be spread like flu through casual contact or breathing in the same air.

Patients are contagious only once the disease has progressed to the point they show symptoms, according to the WHO. And the most vulnerable are health care workers and relatives who come in much closer contact with the sick.

Still, witnesses say Sawyer, a 40-year-old Liberian Finance Ministry employee en route to a conference in Nigeria, was vomiting and had diarrhea aboard at least one of his flights with some 50 other passengers aboard. Ebola can be contracted from traces of feces or vomit, experts say.

Sawyer was immediately quarantined upon arrival in Lagos–a city of 21 million people–and Nigerian authorities say his fellow travelers were advised of Ebola’s symptoms and then were allowed to leave. The incubation period can be as long as 21 days, meaning anyone infected may not fall ill for several weeks.

Health officials rely on ‘contact tracing’–locating anyone who may have been exposed, and then anyone who may have come into contact with that person.

That may prove impossible, given that other passengers journeyed on to dozens of other cities.

Sawyer, who worked for the Liberian Finance Ministry married his wife Decontee in December 2008, in Coon Rapids.

The couple, who both hold US citizenship are originally from Liberia and Decontee arrived in the country with her family in 1991 and Patrick came in the early 2000s.

The couple are part of the large Liberian community in Minnesota, who moved there in the aftermath of the nation’s two civil wars in the 1980s and late 1990s.

His job had taken him back to West Africa to promote economic development there and he was last in the United States in September said Decontee to the Pioneer Press.

His long absences away from home had become common and before he boarded the plane to Lagos last week he had been caring for a sister who was ill with what was revealed to be Ebola, although according to Decontee, he and his family did not know that at the time.

Decontee learned he was ill with Ebola on Thursday and then on Friday she was told her husband of six years had passed away from the virus.

Distraught, Decontee said that she had come forward to share her husband’s fate so that the public can understand how quickly the virus can spread.

‘Patrick was coming here. What if he still wasn’t displaying symptoms yet and came?’ Sawyer asked, according to the Pioneer Press.

‘He could have brought Ebola here. Someone else could bring Ebola here.’

Health experts say it is unlikely Sawyer could have infected others with the virus that can cause victims to bleed from the eyes, mouth and ears.

Still, unsettling questions remain such as how could a man whose sister recently died from Ebola manage to board a plane leaving the country?

U.S. health authorities have warned the deadly virus can spread ‘like a forest fire’.

Stephan Monroe of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said yesterday that ‘Ebola poses little risk to the general U.S. population.’

However, he told AFP: ‘The concern is that the outbreak can be reseeded, much like a forest fire with sparks from one tree. That is clearly what happened in Liberia.’

Sawyer’s death on Friday has led to tighter screening of airline passengers in West Africa, where an unprecedented outbreak that emerged in March has killed more than 670 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

But some health authorities expressed little confidence in such precautions.

‘The best thing would be if people did not travel when they were sick, but the problem is people won’t say when they’re sick. They will lie in order to travel, so it is doubtful travel recommendations would have a big impact,’ said Dr. David Heymann, professor of infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Back home in Minnesota, Decontee is reeling from the news that her husband has passed away.

‘I have three daughters who will never get to know their father,’ Decontee Sawyer said in an interview with the Pioneer Press.

Recalling her husband, Decontee said told Kare11 he was ‘larger than life’ and that she is stills shocked that someone so strong could have their life ended so suddenly.

International travel has made the spread of disease via airplanes almost routine. Outbreaks of measles, polio and cholera have been traced back to countries thousands of miles away.

Even Ebola previously traveled the globe this way: During an outbreak in Ivory Coast in the 1990s, the virus infected a veterinarian who traveled to Switzerland, where the disease was snuffed out upon arrival and she ultimately survived, experts say.

Two American aid workers in Liberia have tested positive for the virus and are being treated there. U.S. health officials said Monday that the risk of the deadly germ spreading to the United States is remote.

One, Texas-trained doctor Kevin Brantly is said to be in grave condition as the virus takes hold of him.

According to his former colleague at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Dr. David Mcray, Brantly is ‘terrified’ the disease will progress further.

Still, colleagues and family members said Brantly, 33, knew of the risks associated with working in one of the world’s poorest countries during an epidemic and did not regret his choice.
‘Kent prepared himself to be a lifetime medical missionary,’ said his mother, Jan Brantly. ‘His heart is in Africa.’

During his four-year family medicine residency, he accompanied Mcray on medical missions to Uganda and earthquake-devastated Haiti. He also spent several weeks working in Tanzania, where a cousin lives and works as a medical missionary, Mcray said.

Before contracting Ebola, Brantly and his family ‘really enjoyed Liberia.’

Despite his fears, Brantly said earlier Monday that he’s got no regrets about going to Africa.

Brantly is one of two Americans fighting for their lives. Married missionary Nancy Writebol, from Charlotte, North Carolina, is also sick at a Liberian hospital as the continent struggles against the worst outbreak in history.

Writebol had moved to Liberia with her husband. She worked as a hygienist, spraying protective suits worn by health care workers treating Ebola patients in Monrovia, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Writebol and her husband David are not medical personnel, but rather Christian missionaries with 15 years experience serving disease and poverty-stricken third world nations.

Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, the couple raised two sons before moving overseas, first to Ecuador and Zambia before moving to Liberia.

‘It’s just devastating news,’ her pastor, Reverend John Munro, said. He described the couple as religious, humble people who were desperate to stay and help despite the congregation’s fears.

Her husband, David, delivered the terrible news to the congregation over Skype, he said.

‘He’s devastated,’ Munro said. ‘He can’t really be with his wife. She’s in isolation. Ebola is very contagious. She’s not doing well. It’s grim news.’

The outbreak started in Guinea in February and spread to neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone in weeks.

Dr. Samuel Brisbane on Sunday became the first Liberian doctor to die in an outbreak the World Health Organization says. A Ugandan doctor working in the country died earlier this month.

The mere prospect of Ebola in Africa’s most populous nation has Nigerians on edge.

In Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, Alex Akinwale, a 35-year-old entrepreneur, said he is particularly concerned about taking the bus, which is the only affordable way to travel.

‘It’s actually making me very nervous. If I had my own car, I would be safer,’ he said. ‘The doctors are on strike, and that means they are not prepared for it. For now I’m trying to be very careful.’

It’s an unprecedented public health scenario: Since 1976, when the virus was first discovered, Ebola outbreaks were limited to remote corners of Congo and Uganda, far from urban centers, and stayed within the borders of a single country.

This time, cases first emerged in Guinea, and before long hundreds of others were stricken in Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Those are some of the poorest countries in the world, with few doctors and nurses to treat sick patients let alone determine who is well enough to travel.

In Sawyer’s case, it appears nothing was done to question him until he fell sick on his second flight with Asky Airlines. An airline spokesman would not comment on what precautions were being taken in the aftermath of Sawyer’s journey.

Liberian Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah told The Associated Press last week that there had been no screening at Liberia’s Monrovia airport.

That changed quickly over the weekend, when President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said a new policy on inspecting and testing all outgoing and incoming passengers will be strictly observed.

She also announced that some borders were being closed and communities with large numbers of Ebola cases would be quarantined.

International travelers departing from the capitals of Sierra Leone and Guinea are also being checked for signs of fever, airport officials said. Buckets of chlorine are also on hand at Sierra Leone’s airport in Freetown for disinfection, authorities said.

Still, detecting Ebola in departing passengers might be tricky, since its initial symptoms are similar to many other diseases, including malaria and typhoid fever.

‘It will be very difficult now to contain this outbreak because it’s spread,’ Heymann said. ‘The chance to stop it quickly was months ago before it crossed borders … but this can still be stopped if there is good hospital infection control, contact tracing and collaboration between countries.’

Nigerian authorities so far have identified 59 people who came into contact with Sawyer and have tested 20, said Lagos State Health Commissioner Jide Idris.

Among them were officials from ECOWAS, a West African governing body, airline employees, health workers and the Nigerian ambassador to Liberia, he said. He said there have been no new cases of the disease.

    Ah, the benefits of mass third world immigrationism.

    Globalism indeed makes the world smaller–by a few billion souls, if the globalists get their way.

    • David Ashton

      Quarantine is the ONLY protection. But the British government’s “emergency committee” called COBRA has apparently said the risk to Britain is “low”. Low isn’t good enough. Only zero.

    • propagandaoftruth

      That area of the world should be quarantined for any number of reasons. Millions of ’em.

  • Don’t worry, if Ebola didn’t make its way into the country this way, there’s always our open southern border.

    • RisingReich

      You can almost count on it.

  • JohnEngelman

    Is it known if this is DNA virus, or an RNA virus? If it is a DNA virus those who survive have a lifetime immunity. If it is an RNA virus it can mutate and attack survivors again.

    • Who Me?

      What a cheerful little thought!

      • JohnEngelman

        Influenza is an RNA virus. That is why people can get the flu every year. If Ebola is an RNA virus it might kill the entire human species. I doubt anyone could survive that disease twice.

        • Some viral diseases produce very severe complications with a second infection, like dengue. This is an RNA virus.

    • HE2

      A Rabies vaccine series confers Ebola immunity on primates.
      Tests on humans are not funded, therefore not being done.

      • RisingReich

        Right, but we can attempt to fund studies to rid the southerners of an accent.

      • dukem1

        Really? I’ve heard a rabies vaccination is unpleasant…do you still have to get shots in the stomach?…
        Nonetheless, it seems preferable to dying slowly while you bleed from every orifice.

        • HE2

          We stocked injectable vaccine.
          It can be given into the upper arm [deltoid], or if you prefer, the thigh. Post exposure is a series of 5 over a 30 day period. It is critical that no doses are missed.
          I have ordered it administered only a couple of times, both possible post-exposure.
          Reactions are not too bad. Very sore arm, yes.

        • I am wolf

          I don’t think they’ve done it that way in years; last I heard it was three shots in the arm or something.

          • HE2

            Post exposure, a series of five injections.
            If traveling to a country where rabies could be a problem, or if an animal handler, it is a series of three.
            Both series are to be administered over a period of approximately 30 days.

      Yep, this is how nature works and nature will succeed in the end. After all, natural stupidity is also part of nature and it comes from all quarters.

  • I’m as hard on blacks as anyone, but let’s give credit to the wife for speaking out loudly to the negro-worshipping press. If she hadn’t spoken out, the US health authorities would have kept the info secret, justifying secrecy “to avoid a panic.” Because there’s a tragedy of the a dead negro and negro children who won’t see their daddy, this thing is getting big play.

    Even the ghetto american negroes have to be waking up that they’re in some danger. When the disease, which melts your organs, spreads throughout the ghetto, the blacks are going to FEMA camps. What happens in Europe, I can’t say, but common sense would dictate allowing no one into Europe, no matter their race, who is traveling from Africa.

    By not imprisoning everyone on the plane with the infected negro, the dumb Nigerians have quite likely unleashed a worldwide spread of the disease that may not be containable.

    Look up the Richard Widmark movie, “Panic in the Streets,” set in New Orleans, where I grew up. It lays out a story where a stowaway on a ship spreads a deadly disease in NO. I saw this movie as a kid and have been thinking about this issue for decades. The thing to do is to move to the country, stocking up on three months food and water, put a sign on the property that you’ll shoot to kill anyone who sets foot on it.

    In my opinion, Obama wants ebola in the US to justify martial law and cement his tyranny. Thus, do not expect the American government to protect you.

    • dukem1

      Noop…If by some chance this disease were to spread into predominately Black communities, it would become a civil rights issue, like AIDS…
      It would be a crime to discriminate against someone because of their Ebola status..
      This is the United States in the 21st century.

        Actually, in terms of foot speed, it could be justified. I recall seeing a sign in my neighborhood that was supposed to mean “Go Slow – Children” but the words were placed so that it looked like “Go Children Slow”. I thought that in a black neighborhood it ought to say “Speed Up, Children Fast”.

    “U.S. health authorities have warned the deadly virus can spread ‘like a forest fire’” = Quarantined all of Africa, lock down. One big cesspool.

    As mentioned by another blogger, blacks can’t even grow their own food but are believed to be able to contain this deadly disease? Very wishful thinking.

    “Africa’s most populous nation has Nigerians on edge.” Those Nigerians live on top of each other but yet breed like flies.

    • Pro_Whitey

      It’s especially galling when you think that the American Colonization Society helped found Liberia as a place where we could get rid of black people in the U.S.A. The name is intended to translate into something like “Free Land” and its capital Monrovia named after U.S. President James Monroe. In the summer of 1862 Lincoln invited a group of distinguished black freedmen to the White House to ask them to set the example for blacks and move to Liberia.

      • journey

        Except Congress was too tight and refused the funds to deport. Now it has caused this country untold headaches.
        And our “guests” used the blacks (the first wave) to open the door to the present hordes of low IQers (both legal and illegal, the second wave) from third world countries to collapse this country. This is how they show their appreciation after being let in by the thousands in the early 1900’s.

        • Pro_Whitey

          Why, to whom could you be referring? I thinks I know.

    And if U.S Doctors or missionaries want to go they have to stay. Risk a global epidemic to save a few Africans? The one doctor is from Texas should he not be here testing illegal gang bangers for TB? Sometimes being unselfish is the most selfish thing a person could be.

      Amen. As usual, the stupid white moron do-gooders are over in Shit-world trying to engage beasts in civilized engagements, be they medical or religious or whatever — and they may as well be trying to empty the oceans with a teaspoon.

  • There are two good things about ebola: The first is that since the animal reservoir is bats, there is very little chance of it becoming established in the Americas. The second is that ebola croaks people so fast that it doesn’t spread very far.

    • Adolf Verloc

      And apparently you have to come into direct contact with body fluids or feces of an infected person (although little enough is known about it not to make me want to bet the ranch on that.) Still, it is alarming that this guy made it to Lagos. Unlike the other countries, Nigeria is an oil industry hub and people could already be carrying it all over the world. Let’s hope that the incubation period (uncertain) is closer to two days than two weeks.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      That is because in Africa people don’t get far before they are dying, and that takes two days. Here someone can spread it across the nation in a trail of death in two days. This virus is a potential slate wiper and Satan Bug, and the only way it can be worse than it is already is to become capable of spreading through the air. Some strains that kill monkeys are airborne, it’s only a matter of time before a strain that attacks humans will also appear that is airborne. In fact, such a monkey virus struck in the U.S. at Reston Virginia, just 15 miles from the White House. Monkeys through out the facility started dying just like those people in Africa right now, and four workers were also infected but did not get sick. There are plenty of bats in the Americas, and it would not surprise me if Ebola could get a foothold here that way.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        Thank you! And is it really worth F***ING AROUND WITH???

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          The Reston incident was quietly dealt with by USAMRID, who came in civilian clothes, killed the remaining live monkeys and incinerated all of them. They drenched the building in powerful disinfectant, then demolished the facility and disposed of the rubble. It was only after the fact that it was found the Ebola strain was not a danger to man, but they were assuming the worst and acting accordingly. Unfortunately, it is necessary to study this destroyer to learn how to fight it, even possibly find a cure.

          • RisingReich

            This is the right approach. A nice strategic nuke would take care of it – for all humanity.

      • Ebola reston apparently does not kill people.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          Correct, for now. But it does infect humans however, so far none of the workers at the Reston facility never got sick. It would be worth investigating the possibility that if there are forms of Ebola that do not make humans sick, do they confer immunity to the strains that do the way cowpox confers immunity to smallpox?

      It doesn’t spread far if you are a population mainly on foot.

      Add white nations’ transportation systems to the mix, and it will tear across the globe as the filovirus celebrates new niches.

      As is the case here. Jets + Ebola + PC = “we’d rather everybody die than tell one darky he’s not welcome on the plane.”

      I’m of the view that TPTB are OK with that. The ones with the most power have their encampments to hide in, plus they have been saying for years that 95% of humans have to die off “so they can have more stuff.” (Forgetting, of course, where all that stuff comes from.) Then there’s the whole religious impulse among Christians and secular liberals, who think thanatos is virtue.

    Isn’t that Abdula the Butcher?

  • John R

    His devastated wife shudders to think how close he came to coming home and spreading the virus to their daughter. I, too, shudder to think how close this Negro came to coming back into my country and spreading disease to my people.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Just one incubation period is between us and a horrible death thanks to some infected darkie being allowed in. One Ebola infected darkie could kill more of us than a full scale nuclear attack on a large city. Anything an infected person handles or touches is infectious, and with a death rate of up to 90 percent it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see what one infected darkie aboard a plain could start. There is NO vaccine, no treatment, and with the apocalyptic death rate there is only one way to fight it, and that’s quarantine. However, by the time authorities realize what is happening, it will be too late to prevent it’s spreading far and wide. Cars and planes will spread it far faster her than it ever could spread in Africa. Since the virus first present flu-like symptoms, people will infect everyone they come into contact with before they realized two or three days after exposure that’s it’s not the flu. One infected darkie could be as deadly as a thermonuclear bomb. And before victims die, it turns them into zombies, literally because it eats the brain along with everything else but muscle and bone.

        Thus, my argument for a low level payload nuke to be delivered to eliminate the problem.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Yes. In quite a few instances in which news stories either transcribe verbatim or air audio clips of black people speaking as they do, the simplicity of their minds is quite clear. It naturally follows that the insane white race apologists take up to harangue the media for . . .letting black people speak in their own voice, because that is racist.
      Racist is anything that makes the brainwashed feel uncomfortable.

    These people have a great deal of difficulty drawing cause from effect. They do not even understand that if you don’t pay your water bill then it will (eventually) get turned off. Many of them do not comprehend the importance of the alphabet in order to read. They think it’s a “white thing”.

    When will people realize that if you allow open borders you’re not just letting in other people and cultures to celebrate diversity, but you’re letting in foreign diseases which could kill you!

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Maybe that’s the point.

      • Ashley Johnson

        So you’re saying it’s like biological warfare?

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          The borders of White and ONLY White countries are NOT open to “celebrate diversity and multiculturalism.”

          The borders are kept wide open to destroy the White race and White American history, culture and heritage.

          Diversity = White Genocide.

          Multiculturalism = White genocide.

          I cannot emphasize this enough.

          And, that a carefully planned, ongoing genocide is being waged against the White race is not in dispute. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either an anti-White subversive or is clueless and has not been paying attention.

          Yes. They are bio-terrorist: aided and abetted by the anti-White, pro-White genocide regime that currently reigns in Washington.

          • Einsatzgrenadier

            In order for open borders to work, we would have to live in a utopian, monocultural world where everybody shared the same values and had the same level of education and income. In such a world, there would be no such thing as national sovereignty and participatory democracy, but then again, none of these things would be necessary because everybody would love each other and see each other as brothers and sisters.

            However, this is not the reality we see around us. People prefer their own kind and proximity + diversity = war. Socially and genetically engineering a new man always leads to genocide because no man can take apart what millions of years of human evolution have brought together.

  • RisingReich

    Lots of foreshadowing with the name “Coon rapids”.

    This morning in San Fran I awoke to a local news story about some demented “biotech professional” (a White woman – GOD!) who was all so worried about being able to travel to the heart of the infestation in the hole of creation to adopt a 14 year old future rapist and potential lethal disease spreader and fly his stinking black rear back to San Fran.

    The State department should be prohibiting all flights from that region both departing and arriving, but we all know that the “State” department’s priorities really are, don’t we?

  • gemjunior

    Yes, what a wonderful, magical African negro. Close your eyes and visualize a young Morgan Freeman or Sidney Poitier — or even Samuel L. Jackson – on the big screen, ignorantly stumbling around with Ebola while all the white doctors and nurses run around wiping up the blood and? Oh, wait, that’s not Hollywood! They are supposed to save us, I forgot for a second because reality got the better of me.

      Long story short. I found a dead 35lb. raccoon on my property. I hung it in a nearby tree to attract coyotes that were killing the local livestock, ie., I wanted to get him. Some local suggested that the ‘coon in the tree was suggestive, but I seriously hadn’t considered it.

      • Alexandra1973

    Fellow passengers on his plane were given warnings about the disease’s symptoms, which can include bleeding from the nose and mouth, but were allowed to continue on their journeys.

        Coon Rapids has a significant population of blacks and browns, with blacks over twenty percent, browns about sixteen percent.

          I am actually surprised that no towns have been named for thos two. It seems they have been limited to streets and schools, and community organizations.

            So far, Paleo, only so far.
            Any day we can expect to see it happen. Grove Street in Berkeley was renamed “MLK” years ago. But, as you drive uphill into the high rent district, people still call it to Grove.

    Ebola. The most effective crime fighting tool in Africa

  • M&S

    Africa crossed 1 billion in 2010. In 2060, it will have 2.5 billion. In 2100, it will have 4.3 billion. They are confounding UN demographers ability to draw the growth curve steep enough and are the primary reason all their silly arguments about how global population growth is falling off are pure hokum.

    Such an infinite growth market potential is something that the morons of Wall Street will not be able to avoid the allure of as they follow the scent of money towards the thermodynamic downfall of The West that is sure to happen under ‘pure capitalism’.
    (Where profit is a virtual value not a hard product, and money is thus printed toilet paper, you can never get more work product out than you put energy (as resources) in. Nor is the efficiency of that generated work product ever greater than the efficiency losses inherent to the number of process steps between E->in and WP->out. Finally, where every system ultimately entropic, the faster you deplete your E, the less efficient the existing system for exploiting it to make WP will be.)

    From an epidemiological perspective, it’s like code breaking, the more samples you have of positive interaction, the more likely you will find the one lock-turner combination which is high frequency travel coupled to a hearty immune system and/or ‘partial immunity’ that allows that one person to become a Victim Zero destroyer of whole societies.

    Where the Northern Climates have winters to isolate contagion through direct kill of the pathogens or carrier populations to support same, Africa has no such frigid immune system with which to force the incubatory phase to full blown destruction of the infection cell.

    There is a solution. It’s called DDT.
    It just depends on the validity you give to rampant R-Breeding stupid populations ‘human right’ to subsequently infest the world.

    You kill the entire group chains of linked contagion vectors (and one of the reasons for blacks high fecundity is that Africa is stiff with multiple killer diseases) and then you burn off the cover and vegetation for more. Do this twice, three, times to obliterate the resident animal populations at the same time you flood the rivers with chlorine.

    And then you reseed with Western, disease resistant, cereal and meat animal replacements. Along with massive coastal desal plants to provide ionically clean water.

    No more lions, tigers, bears oh my! But, by putting humans first, you -do- get an enormous bread basket for the ‘after’ period when Africa’s main resource bearing regions are stripped bear. And you can, maybe, feed them.
    We really need to move beyond the wildlife for wildness’ sake and start making decisions which let us trade modern technology for mandatory birth control in the world’s dumbest populations.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z6lZ8q3Z_o

        Three Billion with a B, dead from starvation and nutrition related disease. Africa is one of those likely to be hit first because it is such a disease ridden hole.

        NPI Population Stats
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6pzPp1Q2ew

        If you’ve seen the film ‘The Constant Gardener’ (yeah, I know) you know that big Pharma mucks about somewhat willy nilly in Africa, bio testing their latest drugs on compliant populations so that they can get their basic antimalarials and vaccines (dated, often with mercury laced preservatives) as well.

        None of which sounds like it shows a great deal of respect for African natives.

        But remember what I said. Africa is going to be huge. A market beyond imagining. And since they lose a million people a year to Malaria alone, it’s likely that they are beyond the tipping point where Africa’s natural killers can contain their population. I doubt, seriously, if anything outside agencies could do, short of crimes against humanity, will matter.

        Africans are born to breed. Because that’s the only way their immune system DNA/RNA response can stay even marginally ahead of the pathogens.

        And of course where there is perception of a market, there is also competition from other players. Depending on whom you listen to, the Chinese are either the best thing that’s happened to Africa as since the end of Colonialism; acting as straight shooter commercial dealers who don’t cheat the natives.

        Or they are the biggest strip mining pillagers of all the ‘civilized powers’ because, in their policy of dealing directly with the little men, what they have in fact done is create a society of quota breakers and smugglers, willing to exceed the take limits on everything from minerals to timber extraction in a world ruled by corruption as is (i.e. the excess is /after/ you’ve paid the police their cut).

        Not that the Chinese are above dealing with the local strongmen either for it is true that Africans remain African which is to say uninterested in the kinds of back breaking heavy labor which they are qualified for and that the Chinese counter to this is to bring in their own people work out negotiated exclusive commercial use zones as essentially Chinese territorial colony enclaves where blacks are not welcome in their own countries.

        Both of these conditions (strategic competitors for resources and market base with a non capable population having a mean IQ of 70) are highly unlikely to favor the Africans themselves but may well result in a buyers market to determine who has exclusive trade hegemonies with the best bets going to the Chinese, due to both a history of Western exploitation and a much larger potential industrial economy seeking to vacuum every possible ton of raw materials in trade for extremely cheap trade goods which (see the recent article on China’s trade city marriages, here) makes the local wheelers and dealers incredible rich.

        From the other side, where a bicycle allows you to massively expand your reachable market (and price index) with everything from goats draped over the handle bars to sacks of sesame seeds, the status of any economy in Africa could double in value to a UN exclusive deal in Trek mountain bikes.

        The problem with this grass roots approach is that it also spreads disease, predatory gang influence and civil war while doing little or nothing to compensate Africa’s -enormous- growth rates.

        The only thing which could do so is large scale commercial agro and that’s not happening in the kinds of generalist crops which would make a difference (not coffee, not coca).

        Africa is going to end up a broken and bloodied, used up whore to the needs of commercial exploitation for the ROW. That’s what the WTO is really about, ensuring market access for resources.

        But that won’t prevent her peoples from obeying the Genetic Algorithm which thousands of years of evolution and exceptionally low IQ control override of instinct both driven them to do in reproducing even when there is no need or benefit to be had from doing so.

        Such is the real danger in ‘Aid For Africa’. As long as we pay exorbitant prices for her commodities, we cannot afford to give our competitors any hope of outbidding us and thus there is no real control rod except the cheapness of trade goods as a means to keep the continents people from developing -any kind- of self supporting social infrastructure system, even in food growth, which might demand more or be less dependent.

        http://www.treehugger.com/culture/global-population-could-hit-14-billion-by-2100-without-greater-effort-to-slow-it-un.html

        The UN never does or gets anything right, least of all predictions. They are in a game of thrones condition as power play for it’s own sake and thus have no reason to pretend that they are not ontop of things even as they claim a dire need for more funding as global trade regulation ‘to do better’.
        An emergency is only useful if someone steps forward with certainty of solutions to ask for your money in resolving the crisis. The UN rides the line without any intent of truly moderating things in their destabilization phase because that would be bad for business.
        My contention is that dorking around will get a lot of us killed when it’s do or die crunch time.

  • Olorin

    Regarding filoviral transmission via “traces of feces and vomit,” any of you who saw that Vice.com documentary on Monrovia and the “Liberian cannibal warlords” (or whatever) realize full well that those bodily substances are everywhere in Liberia and other African nations where the hygiene standards are worse than among animals in the bush.

    But even here in the so-called First World, fecal matter contamination is pretty much everywhere. Google or Duck or Bing the phrase or parts of it:

    fecal matter contamination smartphone telephone cell phone computer keyboard

    And we’re not supposed to conclude or notice or realize this, but a lot of that contamination comes from Turd World types who utterly lack any gene for First World hygienic practices.

    This is why I never touch (to work on) someone’s IT equipment in the (academic health care) workplace without putting on nitrile gloves. I NEVER borrow a cell phone or other handheld device any more than I’d borrow a toothbrush. I would never use public transportation; I’d rather walk.

    Race mixing isn’t just happening at the breeding level, but at the level of total microbial ecology. It’s not just HUMANS interacting, it’s our entire selected and evolved systems of things as intimate as gut flora (another reason that, for instance, anal fetish sex such a bad idea, as if we needed more than one).

    This massive clash of entire microbial galaxies flies in the face of evolution. Nevertheless the ideology driven/idealist New World Order global elite is trying to shove each and every person in the North into mass contact with equatorial/tropical people and their diseases.

    Resisting this isn’t easy, but thank god it’s still somewhat possible. All the people I know with the most robust health and immune systems, their entire lives they have been choosy about where they eat, what they touch, not using public showers/swimming pools/etc., who they have sex with and in what manner, and so on. All those old “conservative” ways of doing things? Many of them evolved out of putting observed best practices for health before unknown thrills, which again is related to the genomic capacities for forethought, self-restraint, and reason in general.

    I’m convinced that one of the main reasons for black Americans’ and Mextizos ongoing low IQ is their filthy hygiene habits. They wallow in each others’ muck and blithely share parasites.

    There is a healthy level of natural dirt for all of us to be exposed to–“clean” dirt that we and our people co-evolved with. Not the filth of people who, for example, have anal sex with 30 partners in a weekend, in Detroit flop houses where there’s no running water. Because YT be racist, yall.

    I’ve always thought that one reason white women mate with black men, then “marry” them, is that they catch some parasite that rots their brains much like toxoplasma in cats makes their prey mice attracted to the smell of cat.

      I work in the schools and you cannot imagine what comes across my threshold; I cannot imagine what’s being brought in every single day. We can no longer ask for a TB test as a condition of enrollment in the public schools (at least where I am). I suspect even asking for a shot card will soon be labeled as bigoted and racist and “not grounds for barring from school enrollment.”

      One of my colleagues caught chicken pox from a student and almost died; I caught a virulent strain of flu that did me in for several months and another colleague tests positive for TB.
