1/ So klang das Entsetzen der Kinderärztin Dr. Margarete Daiber-Helmbold über die #STIKO-Impfempfehlung für Kinder ab 5 Jahren aus dem Mai 2022, zum Ausdruck gebracht in einem Brief an ein #STIKO-Mitglied:

🇮🇹 Dr. Roberto #Petrella : Il y aura bientôt une fausse pandémie appelée #Marburg ! Il s'agit d'une fièvre hémorragique similaire à #Ebola, un virus hautement mortel. Il s'agit en fait d'une mauvaise conséquence du💉 #COVIDー19. Le vaccin est déjà en cours de fabrication.
Les véritables Covidiots sont les femmes et les hommes qui croient au narratif officiel de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (une entreprise privée dont le principal bailleur de fonds est l’eugéniste Bill #Gates) sans se poser d’autres questions.…

According to a new update from @WHO, the #Marburg outbreak in Equatorial Guinea is now up to 15 confirmed cases plus 23 probable cases.
All of the probable and at least 11 of the 15 confirmed cases have died (3 recovered, fate of one is unknown) Image
Of the last 5 cases, 4 were reported in Bata district.
„The presence of confirmed cases in Bata increases the risk of disease spread, as it is the most populated city and economic hub of Equatorial Guinea, with an international airport and port.“
Of the four Bata cases, three have an epidemiological link through a family cluster or through health care setting.
„The fourth and most recent case was reported on 7 April; an investigation of this case is ongoing to establish transmission chains…“

1. @WHO has issued an update on the #Marburg outbreak in Equatorial Guinea. It is not reassuring. A 🧵
Before getting into it, a note on the Marburg outbreak in Tanzania. WHO says the case count remains at 8, with 5 deaths. If accurate, this outbreak doesn't seem to be growing.
2. Equatorial Guinea: The case count is up to 38 confirmed & probable #Marburg cases; at least 89% are dead. Authorities don't know the identify/whereabouts/disease outcome of 1 case. (shudder)
The most recent case tested positive on April 7. Not yet clear how s/he got infected. Image
3. There is no reason to think this outbreak is coming under control. Equatorial Guinea is lucky in that #Marburg doesn't seem to transmit as well as Ebola; Marburg outbreaks have historically been smaller. But one can't assume a Marburg outbreak will be small. See Angola 2004-05

Boy, I goofed. I confused in my memory banks two different original outbreaks -- Lassa and Marburg, mis-recalling things I wrote nearly 30 years ago.
I apologize. And here, I will quote a section of THE COMING PLAGUE referring to #Marburg in a thread. Image

1. #Marburg in Equatorial Guinea: @WHO's @DrAbdiMahamud says like other countries when the first deal with a viral hemorrhagic fever outbreak, Equatorial Guinea is on a learning curve. Said with a first outbreak, countries can be tempted to think "this could go away."
2. @DrAbdiMahamud said with evidence of additional #Marburg cases spread out over 3 provinces in Equatorial Guinea, the country has now "recommitted" to combatting the outbreak.
Case count: 9 confirmed, 20 probables.
3. A concerning detail about the Equatorial Guinea #Marburg outbreak: Of the 8 most recent positive cases, 6 are dead, 1 is alive & one is ... unknown. A sample tested positive, but there was no identifying info on the sample. (see bottom of page 2.…

The #MarburgVirus is a cousin of #Ebola & there are outbreaks now in Equatorial Guinea, on the borders of Gabon & Cameroon & on other side of Africa, in Tanzania, all on the heels of Ghana outbreak last year. @WHOAFRO @WHO & African CDC are mobilized.
There are 6 major subtypes of #Marburg which is a bat-carried hemorrhagic RNA virus. The subtypes seem to have different fatality rates in humans -- up to 100%. The current strains have not yet been genotyped, so it is unclear what is going on, @WHO says.
MORE Image
It's possible these are coincident events.
It's also possible something is going on w/bat populations across equatorial Africa, which would be worrying.
@WHO 's Dr. Abdi Rahman Mahamoud just said in presser there are "more questions than answers."

1. @WHO has finally issued an update on the #Marburg situation in Equatorial Guinea. The "finally" is not criticism of WHO. They issue these with info provided by an affected country & sometimes countries are not eager to share information.
The situation is complex.
A 🧵
2. There has only been 1 confirmed case of #Marburg so far, but that is mainly because 8 other people suspected of having had the disease died without testing. This is Equatorial Guinea's first #Marburg outbreak & @WHO is concerned about the country's capacity to cope. Image
3. There have been no cases in health workers yet, a blessing given 1 of the people who died was in a health care setting at death. People who are dying of Marburg are teeming with virus; preparing bodies for burial often results in infection, which may have been the case here. Image

The indications of a Marburg virus infection can be very similar to other illnesses or conditions. However, symptoms can become increasingly severe as the disease progresses. This can lead to deadly consequences such as multi-system organ failure.
While diagnosis of #Marburg can be difficult and requires a molecular diagnostic test, if you are in an area with an outbreak and experiencing any symptoms it is important to be evaluated.
More information on Marburg virus infection symptoms can be found at the CDC:…

3 weeks after the first human trials of the Marburg vaccine show "promising results", the WHO makes an official announcement regarding concerns of a Marburg outbreak in Africa

what a relief we have the vaccine to fall back on AND they are already telling us development can be speeded. It is being developed at USA's National Institutes of Health NIH where Faucci is the Director

the investigational vaccine appeared to induce strong, long-lasting immunity to the MARV glycoprotein: 95% of participants in the trial exhibited a robust antibody response after vaccination, and 70% maintained that response for more than 48 weeks.

This will become potentially relevant. Just an FYI;)

1. Does it feel like we're seeing far more filovirus outbreaks (#Ebola, #Marburg) in recent years? It does to me so I plotted outbreaks into a graph. No lab accident cases, or outbreaks with only lab animals, ie 1967 Marburg. Each outbreak is only counted on the year it started. Image
2. Likewise, I didn't count spread to other countries as distinct outbreaks, like the #Ebola cases in Spain, the US & Nigeria, etc from the 2014 West African outbreak.
So it definitely feels like #Ebola & #Marburg outbreaks have been more frequent since the mid-1990s. Image
3. Some of that increase in frequency could be real. Climate change? Better detection of outbreaks. But some of it is probably due to the fact that #Ebola outbreaks beget more Ebola outbreaks. The more Ebola survivors there are, the higher the risk of survivor-ignited cases. Image

1. #Marburg: Concerning details from @WHO about the Marburg outbreak in Ghana. The 2 newest cases (#3 & #4) are the wife & child of the first case, who died June 27. @SoceFallBirima says the child was infected through contact with the mother, not Case #1. The child has died.
2. The wife, #Marburg case #3, refuses to go to a treatment center where she can be safely cared for. She is in a prayer camp, where the practice of laying on of hands is used to try to heal people, @SoceFallBirima said. The response team is trying to negotiate her transfer.
3. This is a dangerous situation which could result in a number of additional #Marburg cases in the Ghana outbreak.

1. A short #Marburg 🧵
@WHO issued an update on the cases of Marburg in Ghana today. It didn't declare the outbreak over, but it did say that all 108 known contacts of the 2 cases have gone through 21 days without becoming sick, so they are in the clear. Good news. Image
2. However, investigations into the two men — both of whom died — have not revealed how they contracted #Marburg. Hard to rule out the possibility there might be other, as yet undetected cases. This is the first time Marburg has been detected in Ghana. Image
3. Both men were from the Ashanti region of Ghana, the most heavily populated part of the country. One of the men — the first to seek care — had traveled to the western part of Ashanti before he became ill & he was buried in the Savannah region. It was not a safe burial. Image
