🇮🇹 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.…

1/ Der aktuelle Podcast von @AlexanderKekule (Folge 349) befasst sich u. a. mit der Frage, ob die #WHO weitere Machtbefugnisse erhalten sollte.

„Also nachdem die #WHO völlig versagt hat, 2001, als es um biologische Anschläge ging, da gab es ja ……
2/ … Milzbrand-Anschläge, … dann kam 2003 SARS. Bei SARS war es auch wieder so, dass die #WHO insbesondere die Kommunikation mit China überhaupt nicht im Griff hatte … und es war eine reine Glückssache, dass über einen Whistleblower damals dann SARS überhaupt bekannt wurde. …
3/ Die #WHO hat es völlig verschlafen an der Stelle, weil das Netzwerk der #WHO eben auf die offiziellen staatlichen Kontakte in China angewiesen war, die sich da totgeschwiegen haben. Dann kann man die Liste lang weiterführen, 2009 Influenza ist … noch bekannt, die sog. …

1🧵A developing story of multiple outbreaks of #MarburgVirus in Equatorial Guinea, and Tanzania in Africa occurring over the last few weeks. Marburg is rare but holds a 88-90% fatality rate according to the reports coming out of the area. ImageImageImageImage
2🧵What I found most concerning was the particular locations of the outbreaks and their proximity to BSL-3 & BSL-4 Laboratories in Africa. While zoonotic spillover is possible, lab leaks do occur and so far there is no theory or evidence suggesting a natural host. ImageImageImage
3🧵What was even MORE concerning was the map of where Metabiota had confirmed locations of operations. Although most think Metabiota is long gone, think again. Metabiota joined #HEADA, in #Cameroon, Sierra Leone, and the Democratic Congo. ImageImageImageImage

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.

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."

Back in the days of John Humphrey Noyes before he got suspended for posting a study indicating there's viral persistence in epithelium of kids, because everyone includes kids.
How does a twit like this get 108K views propagating “what if viral persistence is REAL”?

It’s almost like we are back to banning twitter accounts for insisting SARS is airborne!
WHEN the rest of non-SARS experts acknowledge that “viral persistence is a thing”, we will be one step closer to acknowledging the true immunity dysfunction threat of SARS

Looking forward to what should be a timely debate on how and what the UK Govt can do to help to boost the UK's resilience #IfGResilience
First @tom_sasse opens the webinar by highlighting the recent extreme weather in both the summer & winter, the recent #Coronavirus pandemic & ongoing threats from terrorism & cybersecurity as reasons for #Resilience to be a top national priority #IfGResilience
Sasse notes that the government is due to publish its National Resilience Strategy "presently", but notes that it has probably been delayed in "the recent political maelstroms" #IfGResilience

One of the three candidate #Ebola vaccines against the Sudan ebolavirus have arrived in #Uganda to be included in a clinical trial
There are no licensed #Ebola vaccines against the Sudan ebolavirus species responsible for the current outbreak in #Uganda, thus the need for the current trial
Thanks to efforts of partners & collaborative approach, the process for this #Ebola vaccine trial was accelerated - with speedy trial protocol design, regulatory and ethical processes, forming & training research teams so that the trial is conducted as per international standards

1. An overdue #Ebola update:
Something appears to be working in Uganda's Ebola Sudan outbreak, though I should stress that all I have to go on right now are data released by the Ugandan government. Per their latest SitRep, there hasn't been a new confirmed case since Nov. 12.
2. No new cases, no new deaths. The outbreak is currently holding at 163 confirmed & probable cases & 77 confirmed and probable deaths. #Ebola…
3. A chart in the latest #Ebola SitRep shows 4 districts have had their most recent case within the past 2 weeks. The incubation period for Ebola is up to 21 days, so they aren't out of the woods.
These are only confirmed cases; I'm not sure when the last probable case was.

2/ The current Ebola outbreak is related to what's known as the "Sudan strain," but the virus is spreading in Uganda. "It's worrisome because previous Ebola vaccines & treatments do not work against this strain. The virus can kill as many as 1/2 of those MORE
3/ who get it. Ebola now is spreading in Kampala, Uganda's capital, a densely populated city of > 1.3 M.

"Mortality is high, between 40-50%. So, this is not insignificant."

"The likelihood of us seeing a patient is next to zero.

1/ I'm growing increasingly worried about #Ebola in Uganda.

Over the past few days, cases have been reported in previously unaffected districts, rates have started increasing, & the MoH sit reps were plagued w/ errors.

All signs point toward a deteriorating situation.
2/ Over the past week, confirmed Ebola cases have been reported in the Masaka and Jinja districts. This is the first time EVD cases have been reported in these districts.…
3/ As @sneweyy reports, when new cases show up in previously unaffected regions, that is a sign contact tracing efforts may be failing.

1. Short #Ebola 🧵
Another health worker has been infected in Uganda's Ebola Sudan outbreak, a 23 yo woman working in Mubende district. Here's hoping she recovers.
2. Uganda's health ministry has been downplaying the scale of its outbreak by refusing to add probable cases to case/death counts. They aren't just doing it to overall cases, they're doing it with health workers too.
They say there have been 19 HCW infections + 7 deaths.
3. But if you look inside their situation reports, there is one table in which they list probable cases (all probable cases are people who died without being tested). If you look there, you see that in addition to 19 confirmed HCW cases, there've been 7 probable HCW cases.

1. Short #Ebola thread:
@WHO issued an update — a DON — today about the Ugandan outbreak. It's been nearly 2 weeks since their last. The scarcity of detail coming out on this outbreak continues to surprise & concern me. I believe that's Uganda's call.…
2. The latest SitRep from Uganda reports that there have been 157 confirmed and probable #Ebola cases & 54 confirmed and probable deaths. They will not add the probable cases so we have to do the math ourselves. I added those arrows.
3. @WHO's update gives a breakdown of #Ebola cases/deaths by affected region. Eight regions have had cases but Mubende and Kassanda have been the hardest hit. Two — Bunyangabu & Kagadi — seem to have contained transmission. Neither has had a case in >40 days.
