Top Ebola Experts: This Strain Is Much Worse Than We’ve Ever Seen Before (Video)

A More Dangerous Strain

The head of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota – Dr. Michael Osterholm – is a prominent public health scientist and a nationally recognized biosecurity expert.

Dr. Osterholm just gave a talk shown on C-Span explaining that a top Ebola virologist – the Head of Special Pathogens at Canada’s health agency, Gary Kobinger – has found that the current strain of Ebola appears to be much worse than any strain seen before … and that the current virus may be more likely to spread through aerosols than strains which scientists have previously encountered.

Watch this minute-long clip:

Another top Ebola expert – chief scientist at the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and discoverer of the Reston strain of Ebola (Dr. Peter Jahrling) – said last week that this strain of Ebola appears to be more virulent than other strains we’ve seen, producing a much higher viral load than other strains.

  • Strategic Collapse

    Ebola is worse and so is the regime in Washington… They complement each.

  • Incriminally Sane

    None of this Ebola outbreak is logical. First of all the CDC own the patent on the Ebola virus and if it were not created in a lab, you could NOT OWN A PATENT on it if it were a part of the natural world. Next, Bill Gates gave more than five hundred million dollars to create a vaccine and this wouldn’t happen unless he stood to make billions by the forced vaccinations that are surely planned.It looks to me that the filthy rich are positioning themselves to make a fortune on mandatory vaccinations and the government will benefit by the reduction in the population and the CDC will get portions of the cost of every person treated for this created Ebola virus because they own the patent on the synthetic virus and just the fact that they own this patent proves this virus was created in a laboratory and they likely have multiple versions which is why they can make the claim that the original is “mutating”.
    I believe the possibility exists that they may use this outbreak and the massive incompetence around the world to justify the creation of a global health care system.

      I would like to research the info. that you provided can you help point me in the direction where you obtained your info.? Re: CDC Patent and Gates financial contribution to develop a vac for it.

      I feel there is more to this than we know and/or that is being shared because “why” would they deem it necessary to bring an infected patient into the US. It just doesn’t make sense. And why would our gov’t vote not to place a ban on any flights and visas coming to and from there? It’s not logical considering they say they no so little about it. Why jeopardize American lives at all?

      Please post supporting evidence for the CDC owning a patent on Ebola.

    Virologists must be able to determine if the new strain comes from a lab. However, since there are probably few microbiologists in the world with the equipment and the knowledge to make that determination, it may be possible to prevent disclosure and hide the role of US bioweapons facilities in W Africa. We may never know. The government will certainty create a “legend” for the virus to hide its origin. Professional opinion may reflect the view that the virus cannot become airborne because in nature it would not. Experts trying to manage the epidemic may want to deny that is has been engineered and has become weaponized. They will have to learn the hard way. The bioweapons makers won’t be saying anything, no matter how many people must die to protect their classified projects from exposure.

    It’ll probably never attain fully pneumonic transmission, even if it’s somewhat more aerosolized. This isn’t to say it’s not already more virulent than HIV/AIDS, it shares the distinction of Bubonic Plague in that it spreads via relatively casual contact (bodily fluids, yes, but often via samaritan contact), but since it kills so quickly it quashes its own long-term odds of transmission. In that sense it is ultimately (although not inherently) less contagious than HIV/AIDS, even if it’s more virulent (more than a semantic difference).

    That said the sudden media refrain to “Keep calm & carry on” is an understandable response, no doubt handed down from on high. Mass hysteria will not resolve the situation, instead our health workers need to be given carte blanche & full support in properly handling victims of this nasty hemmorhagic bug.

    “Top Ebola Experts: This Strain Is Much Worse Than We’ve Ever Seen Before”. In other words it has been weaponized and is doing well.

  • M Fr Nch

    Even people in African countries are saying this is not real and people are being infected by the so called medical teams. Something is being hidden behind this media smoke screen. Have you seen any actual photos of the many supposedly dying from this? Why not? Why are troops being sent to fight a disease supposedly? Why are you still asleep?

    • Robert

      People like you are the reason why terrorists can get away with so much, and diseases can spread. You’re so busy looking for shit that isn’t there, you miss the bad things going on right in front of you.

    Go virus go!

    I believed all the rubbish #AndNowIHaveEbola

  • kimyo

    from the jahrling piece:

    ….there seems to be a belief that the virus load is higher in these patients [today] than what we have seen before. If true, that’s a very different bug. But if you are to assume that the differences in virus load detected in the blood are reflected by differences in virus load spread by body secretions, then maybe it’s a simple quantitative difference. There’s just more virus.

    also: Experts Fear Ebola Virus ‘Is Becoming More Contagious’

    Jeremy Farrar, director of the medical research charity the Wellcome Trust, which has funded research that could help to contain the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, said: “It does look like the amount of virus in the body is higher than in previous epidemics. That means there is more virus in the blood, in saliva, urine, vomit and diarrhoea.”

    both of these quotes are kind of weird. lots of ifs/maybes/lookslikes. nothing quantitative. it’s more like they’re discussing a circular theory rather than the results of patients bloodwork, ie: if there is more virus in the body, then there will be more virus in the blood/saliva……

    (i do realize that precise data is hard to come by in west africa and am truly grateful that these brave, hardworking people are risking their lives to save ours.)

    also, the ibtimes article is oddly constructed. it’s like the author was being paid a bonus every time he devised another way to say ‘there’s just more virus’ (6 times in 10 paragraphs).

  • Frederick C. Lee

    Richard Preston’s “The Hot Zone” (1994) is a TRUE story about Ebola and its effects. Now, 20 years later… we’re seeing it. I strongly suggest you read this book. it describes in detail what the virus does to the body. It’s horrifying.

    • Lou

      This STORY purports to be true but the facts belie it as propaganda designed to prepare us for the bio weapons to come. To find our the science behind Marburg read an investigation into AIDS, Marburg and Ebola and discover the nexus between these three bio weapons.

      ” … the Marburg virus along with Ebola Zaire and Ebola Sudan. All were relative newcomers to the virology scene. All were believed to be HIV relatives if only for their decade of common emergence. Marburg had struck three vaccine production facilities almost simultaneously in 1967. Two outbreaks occurred in two West German cities and another in Yugoslavia.
      Oddly the virus then disappeared until 1975, when it once again reared its ugly head in of all places South Africa. Then two years later, two larger outbreaks erupted in southern Sudan
      and northern Zaire.” LGH Note Doctor Horowitz, in the book Emerging Viruses, shows us how the shipments of monkeys were likely contaminated, by whom and how CDC covered this up for years with its “United States antigen”

    2 recent developments of note: Ebola serum for Africa patients within weeks, says WHO

    Serum made from the blood of recovered Ebola patients could be available within weeks in Liberia, one of the countries worst hit by the virus, says the World Health Organization

    French docs develop ‘high speed’ Ebola test

    As fears over Ebola continue to grow, French researchers announced on Tuesday they have developed a simple test that could detect the deadly disease in 15 minutes.

    Trials at a high-security lab have validated the technique and prototype kits should be available in Ebola-hit countries by the end of October for a clinical trial, France’s Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) said in a statement.

    several of the high profile survivors were given serum. at various times, it’s been reported that a blood type match is required. elsewhere, i’ve seen posts stating that plasma can be given/received by any donor/recipient.

    Every day the ‘gun’ virus in America kills or injures far more Americans through suicides or violent crimes. I estimate a daily average of 100 killed and 400 injured. This is largely unreported as a plague.

    Abroad, the gun ‘virus’–an export of militaristic U.S. foreign policy–is understood to be a global threat. Untold millions have already been killed or injured through that export.

    It is, has been, and promises to be a far more dangerous threat to mankind, albeit a highly profitable export for some.

    Please wake up.
