Be afraid, be very afraid!

Much comes down to the level of freak out by the media and the failure of response by the government.

Enter Zika!

Much like the Ebola breakout, the people who screwed the response the most was the current administration. Obama of course was at the TV cameras recently and said that it was “his leadership and administration that got the outbreak under control”. What a load of crap.

Last Monday I attended a briefing at NIH held by a number of organizations that was to include the WHO, the CDC, my organization and a number of other NGOs, primarily infectious disease laboratory companies that develop vaccinations that fight such viruses.

The CDC people failed to show up. That afternoon everyone got an email form the CDC that their staff would be delayed a day. The WHO, my organization the other NGOs gathered again at NIH the next day and again, the CDC folks failed to show up. Another email from the CDC people appeared, without apologizing for their disrespect, said that they “would be willing to meet on Friday.

Friday arrives and everyone except the CDC were in the auditorium at 8am. The CDC folks were there, at the food tables, but did not come into the auditorium until after the WHO made their presentation.

When the Who people were finished, the CDC group came in lea by a HHS “spokesperson”. This parade was obvious to everyone as the CDC people walked in dutifully behind the HHS representative and sat behind her, never speaking.

The agenda said that the NGOs that are expected to produce the vaccines were up next and in a capsule let everyone know that yes, they could develop a vaccines but it would be 12/18/24 months down the road before a successful solution would be available.

Next up was the CDC but instead of taking the podium, the HHS “spokesperson” stood up from her seat and read a statement, obviously prepared for her to read by the White House, that essentially said that the CDC (the administration) was willing take the lead on this potential public health “problem” and that they would be also willing to discuss the matter once funding from Congress was made available. In a nutshell they had nothing.

I was there in my operations capacity but mostly to support our Chief Administrative Officer. After the HHS mouthpiece finished our CAO looked at me with that “we are outta here” look.
The ground zero region of the Zika virus is well south of our border, assuming that we have a secure southern border… yea, right.

Not to worry. The Zika virus is not nearly as explosive as the media portends. The real worry is its ability to mutate. Fortunately Ebola was not able to mutate. No one knows if the Zika virus can mutate.

It is the no one knows that is the problem.

Feel better now?

Now go wash your hands.

My girlfriend is my organization’s Senior Director for Public Health. I do wash my hands before and after and therefore she is very happy.

Trust me, it is worth it.

So Hemp, if you were thinking about retiring in Guatemala or Honduras to raise mosquitoes you might consider an alternative.

From the original article, there will be pandemics that will occur. We will not be able to stop them. Remember when the news about Ebola happened. I remember the response here, in the metro NY area. They designed and designated specific hospitals to be used to receive and contain effected patients. There were only five hospital centers nationwide with the protocols to contain the virus and treat those patients.

We have global warming, there were horrible plagues that killed many people hundreds of years ago. When the permafrost in some places melts, those diseases can be released back into the air, water, they can mutate and kill again.

Other new pathogens can also develop, naturally or as a consequence of bio warfare (what do you think they do in Ft. Detrick, they develop biohazard chemicals that can kill massive amounts of people, and they use it in wartime). You think not? Why does any nation need to stockpile anthrax, nerve gas etc.? To use on people.

Should you be scared? No, you cannot stop pandemics unleashed naturally or man made. I could get into conspiracy theories but you can nose around for them if you are interested. The worst one I read was that the military already put nanoparticles into the water supplies in certain areas which have already been ingested by large segments of the population and they would use a certain frequency to trigger the particles to activate. When this happens, the people will develop flu like symptoms, it will look perfectly natural even to Dr.'s. People will get sick, then get well as though they have overcome it, but then, they will seemingly relapse but it will be he person's own immune response that causes them to basically drown in their own fluids - their lungs fill up - and they get fevers, heart attacks and die. The immune response that gets triggered does not stop.

In that case it is not the pathogen that kills them, but their own immune response, so the toxicology tests will not point a finger of guilt at a certain disease that snoopy reporters can find out was made, tested and released (or turned up missing) from a governmental agency.

Should you be scared? No fear paralyzes you, Just deal with what comes your way, if an epidemic occurs in your area, try to leave if possible and relocate, so you don't end up in a Fema camp.

The best advice I recently heard was IMPROVISE, ADAPT, OVERCOME.

Identify the problem, what is it that you need (things or outcome), what do you need to accomplish/achieve that? Where/how can you get those things. If one thing stops you, do something else or do it another way.

So you work for an NGO, AKA the beltway bandits ever ready to pimp for as much tax payer dollars as they can get in exchange for nada except high expense accounts and useless advice. You do know that to many who will go unnamed, drawing a government check is a parasitic way of making a living.

How exactly did the current administration screw up the Ebola outbreak, and are 4 people, only one of which died, really considered an outbreak?
