WHO expects 'many thousands of new cases' of Ebola within three weeks


Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) The World Health Organization is sending a dire warning out to the world. There have been nearly 2,300 confirmed deaths from the Ebola epidemic. In Liberia, people are being instructed to shelter in place, with martial law locking down entire villages. Food shortages and strikes have ravaged the region. Since last December, nearly 80 health workers have been killed by the virus. Ebola is spreading so fast in Liberia that the WHO is now warning the United Nations that there will be many thousands of new cases coming over the next three weeks.

At the beginning of September, WHO stated publicly, "Transmission of the Ebola virus in Liberia is already intense and the number of new cases is increasing exponentially."

WHO projects that the "number of new cases is moving far faster than the capacity to manage them in Ebola-specific treatment centres."

They reiterated, "Many thousands of new cases are expected in Liberia over the coming three weeks."

WHO is basically saying that the viral epidemic could double or triple in scope throughout September. WHO is urging humanity to prepare and is calling on aiding nations to ramp up their efforts to stop Ebola. WHO has stated that the affected regions need three to four times the current aid to combat Ebola, citing shortages of something as basic as emergency beds. WHO remarked that conventional Ebola control measures "are not having an adequate impact," reporting that "a hot source of potential virus transmission" is something as simple as motorbikes and taxis in West Africa.

Over half of Ebola cases ending in death

The death rate from Ebola is shocking, taking out at least one person for every two affected. As it travels, it evolves. In Liberia alone, 1,871 cases have been documented, and from those, 1,089 have resulted in death. Throughout Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, a total of 4,269 cases have been confirmed and over half (2,288 people) have become casualties.

With a 21-day incubation period, the Ebola virus doesn't illicit any symptoms in infected people for up to three weeks. This means that people infected in late August may not show symptoms until mid-September. This makes Ebola spread even faster and more sneakily, since people don't realize that they're passing the virus on until it's too late.

US CDC worried

US CDC Director Tom Frieden has come out to the media stating that the "window is closing" to halt a GLOBAL pandemic. The CDC is basically hinting that the US may be an easy target for Ebola outbreaks.

"This is different [from] every other Ebola situation we've ever had," stated Frieden. "It's spreading widely, throughout entire countries, through multiple countries, in cities and very fast."

How are you preparing?

A prominent group working to contain Ebola in West Africa, Doctors Without Borders, is also warning the world about Ebola's potential global spread. "Six months into the worst Ebola epidemic in history, the world is losing the battle to contain it," said Joanne Liu, president of Doctors Without Borders.

"Ebola treatment centers are reduced to places where people go to die alone, where little more than palliative care is offered."

As Ebola abounds, could you imagine what such an epidemic would look like in a major city anywhere in the world? In a globally connected world, with intercontinental travel and high-density populations, loaded with immune-system-suppressed populations, something like Ebola could turn cities into scenes from an apocalyptic movie.

To avoid that dark scenario, you can optimistically prepare by stocking up on antiviral herbal extracts, teas and ground herbal powders like eleutherococcus root.
