CONAKRY, Guinea — The 2014 Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia is the largest in history according to NPR. Currently, no vaccine or treatment exists to cure Ebola and the virus has a 90 percent fatality rate. The first form of transmission, direct contact with infected blood or secretions, often affects family and friends of an infected individual.
These forms of transmissions deem friends and family of an infected individual and healthcare workers most susceptible to contraction of the Ebola virus.
The World Health Organization notes that the symptoms of Ebola include fever, muscle or head pain, sore throat followed by vomiting or diarrhea and impaired kidney or liver functions. Additionally, a Vanderbilt University professor of infectious diseases explained that a widespread outbreak of Ebola is unlikely in a developed nation due to medical protocol for the infected and deceased. The World Health Organization and the Global Alert and Response Network have sent teams to West Africa to help health officials contain and eliminate the virus.
Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans. EVD outbreaks occur primarily in remote villages in Central and West Africa, near tropical rainforests.
The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. Ebola first appeared in 1976 in 2 simultaneous outbreaks, in Nzara, Sudan, and in Yambuku, Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ebola is introduced into the human population through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals. In Africa, infection has been documented through the handling of infected chimpanzees, gorillas, fruit bats, monkeys, forest antelope and porcupines found ill or dead or in the rainforest. Ebola then spreads in the community through human-to-human transmission, with infection resulting from direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, and indirect contact with environments contaminated with such fluids. Burial ceremonies in which mourners have direct contact with the body of the deceased person can also play a role in the transmission of Ebola. Health-care workers have frequently been infected while treating patients with suspected or confirmed EVD.
Among workers in contact with monkeys or pigs infected with Reston ebolavirus, several infections have been documented in people who were clinically asymptomatic. EVD is a severe acute viral illness often characterized by the sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. The incubation period, that is, the time from infection to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 days.
Other diseases that should be ruled out before a diagnosis of EVD can be made include: malaria, typhoid fever, shigellosis, cholera, leptospirosis, plague, rickettsiosis, relapsing fever, meningitis, hepatitis and other viral haemorrhagic fevers. Samples from patients are an extreme biohazard risk; testing should be conducted under maximum biological containment conditions.
In Africa, fruit bats, particularly species of the genera Hypsignathus monstrosus, Epomops franqueti and Myonycteris torquata, are considered possible natural hosts for Ebola virus.
Although non-human primates have been a source of infection for humans, they are not thought to be the reservoir but rather an accidental host like human beings. RESTV has caused severe EVD outbreaks in macaque monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) farmed in Philippines and detected in monkeys imported into the USA in 1989, 1990 and 1996, and in monkeys imported to Italy from Philippines in 1992. Since 2008, RESTV viruses have been detected during several outbreaks of a deadly disease in pigs in People’s Republic of China and Philippines. As RESTV outbreaks in pigs and monkeys have preceded human infections, the establishment of an active animal health surveillance system to detect new cases is essential in providing early warning for veterinary and human public health authorities. In the absence of effective treatment and a human vaccine, raising awareness of the risk factors for Ebola infection and the protective measures individuals can take is the only way to reduce human infection and death. Reducing the risk of human-to-human transmission in the community arising from direct or close contact with infected patients, particularly with their bodily fluids. Communities affected by Ebola should inform the population about the nature of the disease and about outbreak containment measures, including burial of the dead. Pig farms in Africa can play a role in the amplification of infection because of the presence of fruit bats on these farms. Human-to-human transmission of the Ebola virus is primarily associated with direct or indirect contact with blood and body fluids.
It is not always possible to identify patients with EBV early because initial symptoms may be non-specific.
Health-care workers caring for patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus should apply, in addition to standard precautions, other infection control measures to avoid any exposure to the patient’s blood and body fluids and direct unprotected contact with the possibly contaminated environment.
Essential oils are special; they are pure plant and flower essences with a long history of curative properties.
It’s not just the Ebola virus that Young Living distributors routinely rely on to gain customers.
According to the Young Living website, “Gary established the standard now known as Young Living Therapeutic Grade™, a philosophy and a guarantee that Young Living will only sell 100% pure, natural, uncut oils that maintain their vital therapeutic potency.” And on this premise, he built the business that brings in more than $100 million in annual revenues.
There are a number of respected, quality brands of essential oils; many are available at health food stores, Whole Foods Market, or online.
For more information on healthy and responsible use of essential oils, you can visit the NAHA website. Ask anyone what is Ebola, and the only reasonable answer you might get to this question is that it is a virus. The idea of mouse-human equivalence has financed many scientific careers though it has often been a lie. Ebola and similar viruses like Marburg did not come from some nefarious plan to kill Africans but are a direct result of human overpopulation: the monsters out the Pandora’s box of deforestation. Given that pigs do a major service of trash collection for human communities, among other things, and bats pollinate many fruits, the destruction of these species would merely exchange one kind of terror for another.
Much has been made of the fact that the Ebola research group in Manitoba, Canada, led by Gary P. Alarmingly, one of the dead monkeys from the original eight had in its system an Ebola that had escaped the ZMAb by mutating.
Now, you might be thinking that a mortality rate around 12 percent would look awfully good in a Zombie Apocalypse, but is Ebola really such an invincible adversary?
In at least Zaire, medical doctors have greatly increased the survival rate of Ebola patients. Even so, as an outbreak of Ebola flares up during this writing, Western scientists and medical doctors are flocking to west Africa to expand their laboratory knowledge to real-live humans. A group of Canadian and American scientists stand to become very rich from the commercialization of Ebola vaccines. By far the biggest Ebola threat is the possibility that a highly efficacious vaccine might be developed, on the quiet, in association with “defense” concerns. I’ve read that the 90% mortality episode involved only nurses and patients at a poorly-funded charity hospital who reused unsterilised needles for vitamin B12 shots. Typically, people do not get Ebola from other people unless they’ve been in direct contact with the secretions or blood of dying patients (or dead people, at funeral rituals). Some called it chew, sub or rub but tobacco (scientific name, Nicotiana tabacum  and Nicotiana rustica) has been popular since the olden times.
Because of the recent outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa, all the global population has been in panic. In an experimental study conducted by Map Biopharmaceutical Inc., Ebola virus is introduced to mice as experimental subjects and as the mice's body respond to the virus, it naturally develops antibodies against it. Although this breakthrough drug has shown some promise, the drug still has been subjected to further research before it could be moved to human trials.
A recent Mintel study shows that a quarter of American no longer ordering soft drinks in restaurants compared to a year ago. Raintree Nursery has launched pineberries (or pineapple flavored strawberries) and bubblegum flavored strawberries in Australia, which are absolutely "fabulous". Feeling responsible for the planet, Pellegrini decided to make an app that could prevent leftover foods in eateries from making a trip to the landfill. Cosmic mythologist and medical astrologist Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, posited that our diet as humans play an important role in attracting alien life into Earth. The outbreak started in March 2014, infecting approximately 600 people and killing 338 people.
Therefore, understanding how you get Ebola, knowing who is most likely to contract Ebola and the chances of Ebola spreading to more countries are essential pieces of information for those anxious about the disease.
The World Health Organization ascertains that fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are natural hosts of the Ebola virus.
A person may contract the virus if he or she comes into direct contact with blood or secretions from a person with the Ebola virus or if he or she has direct contact with an object infected with the virus.
As they care for a sick individual or bury a deceased individual, they come into direct contact with bodily secretions and may contract the virus.
The World Health Organization advises that people limit their exposure to animals and raw meat, use protective clothing and proper food preparation techniques.


If health officials can institute similar standards and practices in the three outbreak countries, they could quell the virus outbreak successfully. Awareness of how one gets the Ebola virus in the infected communities as well as global understanding of the disease will help combat the outbreak. Jaclyn was drawn to The Borgen Project's focus on the challenges and successes in the fight against global poverty.
The latter was in a village situated near the Ebola River, from which the disease takes its name. Men who have recovered from the disease can still transmit the virus through their semen for up to 7 weeks after recovery from illness.
This has occurred through close contact with patients when infection control precautions are not strictly practiced.
This is followed by vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding. Ebola virus was isolated from semen 61 days after onset of illness in a man who was infected in a laboratory.
Patients are frequently dehydrated and require oral rehydration with solutions containing electrolytes or intravenous fluids.
As a result, the geographic distribution of Ebolaviruses may overlap with the range of the fruit bats.
Since 1994, Ebola outbreaks from the EBOV and TAFV species have been observed in chimpanzees and gorillas.
Asymptomatic infection in pigs has been reported and experimental inoculations have shown that RESTV cannot cause disease in pigs. Routine cleaning and disinfection of pig or monkey farms (with sodium hypochlorite or other detergents) should be effective in inactivating the virus. Culling of infected animals, with close supervision of burial or incineration of carcasses, may be necessary to reduce the risk of animal-to-human transmission. Transmission to health-care workers has been reported when appropriate infection control measures have not been observed. For this reason, it is important that health-care workers apply standard precautions consistently with all patients – regardless of their diagnosis – in all work practices at all times.
When in close contact (within 1 metre) of patients with EBV, health-care workers should wear face protection (a face shield or a medical mask and goggles), a clean, non-sterile long-sleeved gown, and gloves (sterile gloves for some procedures).
Samples taken from suspected human and animal Ebola cases for diagnosis should be handled by trained staff and processed in suitably equipped laboratories. Gary Young, are the focus of a multi-level marketing program that have brought essential oil products to the mainstream. The company’s latest claim, that its oils can kill the Ebola virus, has had distributor websites shut down by the FDA.
In the case of Young Living, the FDA listed three of its distributor sites that claimed Young Living essential oils could prevent or cure the deadly Ebola virus.
I list here a few of them those (sic) oils that could help prevent your contracting the Ebola virus . And what’s more delightful than the pure aromatic essence of a rose flower to make you feel calm, or the exhilarating fresh scent of eucalyptus leaves when you’ve got a stuffy nose? Scare tactics sell product, and the company’s legion of sales representatives and their sales pitches have been compared to how Natural News promotes disinformation about health issues and government activity. Much of that comes from the membership program and people signing up to become a “distributor” of the product. At their simplest, essential oils are synthetic chemical-free alternatives to perfumes or deodorants.
But even the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) acknowledges the unethical and potentially dangerous behavior of brands like Young Living and doTerra. The transmission of Ebola from bats to humans has probably resulted from our destruction of the habitats of bats.
Although scientists claim that anti-Ebola vaccines are just around the corner, their development is still at a primitive stage. Kobinger, has achieved 100 percent survival of some monkeys 24 hours post infection, and 50 percent survival 48 hours post infection, by giving these unfortunate monkeys an antibody mixture, now called ZMAb. This alone suggests that a mortality rate of about 12 percent should be expected despite the “vaccination,” since the virus is a moving target. Even in the initial 1976 outbreak, when the virus killed 90 percent of its victims in Zaire (Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC), the mortality in Southern Sudan was 50 percent. As early as 1995, researchers at the University of Kinshasa discovered that extremely sick Ebola-infected patients, including ones who had been comatose, could be saved by transfusions of blood from individuals who had recovered from the same Ebola infection. Indeed the current Ebola outbreak in west Africa provides a great opportunity for Phase I trials on humans without regard to ethics or scientific rigor. That is, the infection would be unusually virulent (from the fastest-growing organisms in someone’s blood) and unlikely to be particularly contagious. It has been dubbed with many names but tobacco which is a popular product for the manufacture of cigars and cigarette is also popular for the many serious adverse effects such as dependence, impotence and other serious cardiovascular consequences. Thousands and still counting have died from this deadly hemorrhagic virus including health workers. These antibodies which contains specialized proteins that may be useful to ward off the infection, is then harvested.

Knowing what is Ebola virus and how it spreads, affect and kills it victims can go long way to prevent and contain the disease. From fruit bats, the virus spreads to other animals, including monkeys, antelope, pigs and porcupines. The second form of transmission, direct contact with an infected object, occurs primarily in hospitals and clinics. Healthcare workers and family members of infected individuals should also wear protective clothing and avoid contact with those infected when possible. In an NPR article from June 2014, an infectious disease specialist, Kamran Khan, indicated that if the Ebola virus spread outside of Africa’s borders, it would most likely spread to Paris first.
She wanted to help The Borgen Project demonstrate the positive impact of poverty-focused aid as well as use media to draw attention to ongoing global issues.
Laboratory findings include low white blood cell and platelet counts and elevated liver enzymes. Restricting or banning the movement of animals from infected farms to other areas can reduce the spread of the disease. Gloves and appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn when taking care of ill patients at home. For RESTV, educational public health messages should focus on reducing the risk of pig-to-human transmission as a result of unsafe animal husbandry and slaughtering practices, and unsafe consumption of fresh blood, raw milk or animal tissue. These include basic hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene, the use of personal protective equipment (according to the risk of splashes or other contact with infected materials), safe injection practices and safe burial practices. These are two common essential oils, potent tools of the plant kingdom, relied on and revered for ages by many cultures around the world. Neither are doTerra’s, yet both companies charge more for their products than organic brands do for offerings of a higher quality (the lack of pesticides and herbicides).
At least one scientific editor has described the disease caused by the viral infection as a “Zombie Apocalypse,” and the relatively few Western researchers who are permitted to study the virus do their best to encourage the scaremongering. Fruit bats, which are regarded as being the probable “natural reservoir” for Ebola remain completely healthy even while they shed the virus in their bodily secretions. It is possible that the virus passes through an intermediate carrier, such as pigs, to reach humans. Due to a need for high containment and special licenses, Ebola vaccination studies are limited to a handful of scientific groups that do not generally try to reproduce or verify each other’s work. These results look less impressive when one realizes that they involved only eight monkeys: four in the 24-hour group and four in the 48-hour group.
Indeed, a study of the virus sequences of 78 patients in Sierra Leone’s 2014 outbreak, discovered 395 mutations.
In that study, the blood donors had been free of any symptoms and virus for more than three weeks. The stated interest of DRDC is “to defend and protect Canada’s interests at home and abroad.” On the American side, a San Diego company called Mapp Biopharmaceutical (MappBio), led by Gene Olinger of the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, began to receive large contracts from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). In particular, a vaccinated army could advance on a region that had been deliberately contaminated.
African scientists from the Democratic Republic of the Congo found in 1995 that Ebola patients could be saved by blood transfusions from immune individuals who have recovered from the disease. One of the nurses wandered in delirium through a crowded city for hours, without passing that strain on to anyone. This is why the casualties from Ebola are predominantly health workers and the family members of -dead- patients.
Health care workers have died recently and are continued to be exposed to this lethal virus.
Tobaccos are then exposed to the harvested antibodies in such a way that the tobacco's natural processing mechanism process the antibodies from the mice and develop it into a stronger antibody.


Known as Ebola virus ( EVD ) or Ebola hemorrhagic fever ( EHF ) this virus to put it basically bleeds its victims to death.
When humans handle the bodies of these ill or deceased animals, the virus spreads to humans via the animal’s bodily fluid. If protective equipment, medical devices and needles are not properly sterilized, healthcare workers may come into contact with an infected object. Guinea has an international airport but does not have a lot of international traffic and when it does, the main international destination is Paris. Regular hand washing is required after visiting patients in hospital, as well as after taking care of patients at home. Gloves and other appropriate protective clothing should be worn when handling sick animals or their tissues and when slaughtering animals.
On the Young Living website, it states that Gary “developed his first organic herb farming and distillation operation,” which would lead consumers to believe the oils are organic. In most cases, what you’re able to find at health food stores are therapeutic grade products, like those made by Simplers Botanicals, Aura Cacia, Now, or Mountain Rose Herbs. By contrast, pigs with Ebola get an illness like a severe cold that completely disappears in about 10 days. This is suggested by the fact that some healthy pigs and farmers in the Philippines show evidence (based on their serum antibodies) of having encountered Ebola. In such studies, groups of monkeys are deliberately infected with intramuscular injections of the virus and then immediately vaccinated. Although the Zaire virus is generally regarded as being more lethal, doctors in the field who treat real human patients have instead ascribed the 90 percent mortality figure to an initial situation of panic that resulted in quarantine of the patients and their abandonment, without so much as rehydration therapy, despite symptoms that included a massive loss of fluids, an inability to swallow, fever, extreme weakness, headache and other pains. The recipients, on the other hand, did have the virus; they were very ill and in day 4 to 16 after the onset of their first symptoms. Defense, after all, is a euphemism for offense in our Orwellian world, and this threat from Ebola is far more tangible than a Zombie Apocalypse. This, together with palliative treatment of the symptoms, is still the most efficacious treatment for Ebola. Researchers and scientists are more than willing to find a drug that would arrest this deadly virus. This developed antibodies is then extracted and manufactured to this experimental drug, Zmapp. Researchers and scientist are more convinced to go beyond the boundaries of medicine to be able to discover the "miracle" drug that could cure the deadliest virus that ever struck mankind.
The infected person starts to show signs like headaches, pain in the muscles, fever, and sore throat within 3 weeks and 2 days after the person got infected by the virus.Then other problems begin to show up. The same article also discussed cases of individuals infected with Ebola traveling internationally during other outbreaks.
In regions where RESTV has been reported in pigs, all animal products (blood, meat and milk) should be thoroughly cooked before eating. And while we may experience strong benefits of these oils, the FDA says it is irresponsible and dangerous to suggest that they can be used to defeat a deadly virus like Ebola.
They also suggest that every bat, boar and monkey in the forests of central and west Africa can transmit the disease. Ebola does cause a usually lethal hemorrhagic fever in untreated monkeys and humans, but the progression and duration of the disease differ with the species. In addition, pigs that were deliberately infected with Ebola in a Canadian laboratory were able to aerosolize the virus and transmit it to monkeys without direct contact. Survival rates as high as 100 percent have been claimed, and this sounds rather good, until one realizes that this low mortality is only achievable if the vaccine is administered within about 30 minutes of infection. In principle, the ZMAb should have vaccinated the monkeys by allowing them to develop their own immunity against Ebola, but later studies of the long-term effects of this supposed vaccination yielded mixed results.
Vaccines against such a mutable target would, at best, require frequent and expensive reformulation; at worst, they would be pointless.
Together with a company called Kentucky Bioprocessing, they plan to produce the components for ZMAb in tobacco plants and commercialize it. It is also notable that it was African scientists from Sierra Leone who recently discovered that the Ebola virus mutates so rapidly that vaccines are likely to be useless. The experimental drug studied has been seen to have affected the two individuals infected with Ebola virus positively.
Constant vomiting, coupled with the person’s decreasing kidney and liver functioning along with a bout of rashes and diarrhea is a sure sign that the virus is starting to destroy the person from within. These individuals traveled without spreading the virus to anyone else on the airplane, suggesting that the same could occur during this outbreak. Presumably, a similar transmission might occasionally happen between infected pigs and humans. These vaccinations are obviously useless outside of laboratories, since the initial times of encounter with Ebola are usually unknown, and infections as early as a few minutes show no symptoms at all.
In one study, six out of six monkeys who had received ZMAb post infection, and lived, survived a later Ebola infection; in another study, two out of six animals died from their “post-vaccination” encounter with Ebola. The World Health Organization has declared an international health emergency, and the Food and Drug Administration has waived many of the usual safeguards on such studies to accelerate marketing of vaccines. For example, I have seen a report of an outbreak involving 1 dead individual get reported as 100% morality.
A zombie apocalypse indeed, with blood oozing out of every pore, and the possibility of an infection if one whispers E-bo-laaaa. Nigeria has completely stopped the recent Ebola epidemic dead in its tracks within its borders: no vaccines. There’s a chance that death will follow afterwards thought the chances of that happening is reduced if the proper care and treatment is given to the person.How is Ebola spread among humans and by what meansThe virus is spread through body fluids and blood of the infected human who has direct contact with another human.
Nevertheless, vaccines continue to be peddled and, incredibly, Ebola patients are brought for treatment from Africa, where there are many potential blood donors, to the West, where there are hardly any. Urine, breast milk, saliva, semen, mucus, feces, sweat, vomit and tears all contain the Ebola virus though there is an indication that the virus spreading through saliva happens only in the case of the infected that are very sick.
Kent Brantly, who was saved by a blood transfusion from a 14-year-old patient whom he had helped to save, is practically the only Ebola-immune blood donor. Unfortunately for Eric Duncan, the patient from Liberia who recently died in the United States (Dallas, Texas), his blood type did not match Brantly’s. The Dallas nurse, Nina Pham, who caught Ebola while treating Duncan, will probably be saved because, luckily for her, her blood type is a match for Brantly, from whom she has received a blood transfusion. The virus still needs entry points to infect a host like the mouth, nose, eyes, abrasions, open wound and cuts.
Surfaces and object likes syringes once contaminated by the virus serves as potential means of infection.
Dead bodies of infected humans if improperly handled will infect as well.How Ebola spreads though animalsLike human to human contact, the virus is spread by animals through direct contact. Primates like duikers, gorillas, chimpanzees and baboons get the virus by eating fruits that infected bats have partially eaten. Other animals like pigs and dogs can be infected by Ebola, though it is still unclear on whether they have a significant role in spreading the infection.
So far there have been no reports of insects spreading the virus.Increasing the chances of Ebola survival rateA person who is infected by the virus has a small chance of surviving it unless the person is treated as early as possible and with great care.
Doctors and experts recommended caring for the patient in a meticulous and intensive fashion to ensure their survival rate. Such a simple yet effective method is supported by the fact that the Democratic Republic of Congo ( DRC ) has less fatality rates compared to other parts of Africa that was hit by the disease. Also knowing what is Ebola virus and how it spreads helps surviving it.How to treat Ebola infected patientsCurrently there is no specific procedure or treatment to treat infected patients. Nevertheless symptomatic treatments and constant rehydration is a very good way to treat the infected. At the same time they must not neglect handling the emotional aspect like anxiety.Home care can also be helpful if professional help is not available. It is recommend using bleach solution soaked towels and cleaning them with bleach after using.
Caregivers must not forget to wash hands with those same bleach solutions.Caution must be taken when looking for Ebola treatments. Knowing what is Ebola virus and how it infects and spreads through people is still the viable solution for the problem.RelatedLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
