The Local ^ | 19 Aug 2014

Posted on 08/19/2014 5:27:15 AM PDT by Wage Slave

An employee at a Job Centre in Berlin's Pankow district told broadcaster rbb that one of her clients showed the early symptoms of the Ebola virus.

The patient had collapsed and emergency medical services were called.

According to the Berliner Zeitung, she said she had had contact with victims of the deadly disease in her homeland.

"Police have reportedly emptied and closed down the building. Those who came in contact with the woman have been isolated inside."

There's another suspected case in Spain, too, but I gotta go to work and no time to post.

Despite the endemic outbreak in West Africa commercial air service to the region continues. Since the West will suffer only an occasional case or a limited endemic outbreak, the powers that be have decided it would be very politically incorrect to suspend air services. Hope they are correct.

Eeeee-bolllll-aaaaaa ping!

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

The caluculated decision might be that since Ebola has left Africa, there's no point in trying to stop it. I've become a conspiracy theory type thinker, so I'm assuming that the elite have a private vaccine stash for themselves.

What the ptb could stop is invaders from Africa getting into Europe and to islands in the Med or off the coast of Africa. They're already ruining the continent, and that's without spreading Ebola.

Just went to source site. It was updated:

“DDP/The Local | 19 Aug 2014, 14:16

Update: Around 600 people are quarantined inside a Job Centre in Pankow after a 30-year-old West African had been taken to Berlin’s Virchow hospital after showing symptoms of Ebola.”

“Berlin’s Virchow Clinic has 20 beds ready for suspected Ebola cases.”
 
Might need more beds.

Lovely.

Hopefully this is a totally false alarm and a minor inconvenience for all those people.

With all the PR about everybody tightening transit nodes people like her merely walk on in.

WHO still avoids suggesting quarantine of air travelers.
What are the going to say when the dreaded real break-out happens? Whoops, our bad.

take it further

there’s a group of elites that want to wipe out 90% of the population.

Ebola fits the task handily

That's crazy talk. Except that everyone rich enough and powerful enough to do so has a mountaintop fortress, gated isolated community or private island to retreat to if things get really bad.

I don't believe they want to wipe out 90% or the population, even though Dan Brown's book is convincing and scary. What I believe is they want total domination of the earth and its resources and don't give a damn how many people die as they strive for that goal.

Oh frikking A---a day out there just shopping and I FULLY UNDERSTAND why they want to take 90% of us out.

In seriousness though, they feel they no longer have the need for the masses. They are a technological elite and will soon be able (they think) grasp eternal life. They believe they only need to keep a relatively small population to continue to advance technologically and move forward. They are pretty open about it.

You need to converse with more liberals, sincerely.

The liberal half of the population really, really think the human population is a virus upon the planet, especially the caucasian male portion of the population.

These idiots are not the elites with special protections or privileges. These are just ordinary liberal idiots; just as likely as us humans to get wiped out in the cleansing.
