    The Marburg virus — a lethal pathogen similar to Ebola — is spreading rapidly in both Equatorial Guinea and Tanzania, and could soon expand beyond Africa, The Daily Beast reports. "It is important to systematically assess patients for the possibility of viral hemorrhagic fevers… through a triage and evaluation process, including a detailed travel history," the CDC advised on Thursday,
  • 'Unprecedented’ situation as two African countries report outbreaks of Marburg virus

    For the first time, the world is seeing two simultaneous outbreaks of the Marburg virus – one in Equatorial Guinea, the other in Tanzania. The Marburg virus is just as deadly as Ebola, to which it is closely related, but it has been extremely rare until now. The situation with the Marburg virus entered uncharted territory on March 21, when Tanzania announced an outbreak of the disease in addition to the one in Equatorial Guinea, on the other side of the African continent. Five people have died out of eight confirmed cases as of April 6, according to the US...
  • Ban on gain-of-function studies ends (Feb 2018, Foreshadowing of the pandemic)

    The US moratorium on gain-of-function experiments has been rescinded, but scientists are split over the benefits—and risks—of such studies. Talha Burki reports. On Dec 19, 2017, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that they would resume funding gain-of-function experiments involving influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus. A moratorium had been in place since October, 2014. At the time, the NIH had stated that the moratorium “will be effective until a robust and broad deliberative process is completed that results in the adoption of a new US Government gain-of-function research policy”. This process...

    There are no confirmed Ebola cases in the U.S. yet. But health experts with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are working closely with local and state health officials throughout the U.S. to monitor people who have flown into the country after traveling through Uganda. In Colorado, health officials are tracking multiple people who recently arrived from high-risk areas. These people take their temperature daily, keep tabs on their health and report any symptoms of illness to officials with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The current Ebola outbreak is related to what’s known as the...

    Is a new outbreak of the Ebola virus about to cause widespread panic all over the globe? The Zaire strain of the disease is fairly common, and in recent years scientists have developed effective treatments for it. Unfortunately, the new outbreak that has just erupted in Uganda is of the Sudan strain. There had not been a case of that strain in a decade, but now it is spreading rapidly. So far, there have been 63 confirmed cases, and 29 of those individuals have died. There is no treatment and no cure for the Sudan strain. So if this virus...

    At least 19 people have died, including four health workers since September 20. The first case in the capital, Kampala, was recorded last week. Ugandan authorities have documented more than 1,100 contacts of known Ebola patients, according to the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. The Sudan strain of Ebola, for which there is no proven vaccine, is circulating in the country of 45 million people. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Saturday imposed a 21-day travel lockdown on two Ebola-hit districts – Mubende and Kassanda – as part of efforts to stop the spread of the contagious disease.

    Ugandan authorities on Saturday imposed a travel lockdown on two Ebola-hit districts as part of efforts to stop the spread of the contagious disease. The measures announced by President Yoweri Museveni mean residents of the central Ugandan districts of Mubende and Kassanda can't travel into or out of those areas by private or public means. Cargo vehicles and others transiting from Kampala, the capital, to southwestern Uganda are still allowed to operate, he said. All entertainment places, including bars, as well as places of worship are ordered closed, and all burials in those districts must be supervised by health officials,...

    The Biden administration will begin redirecting U.S.-bound travelers who had been to Uganda within the previous 21 days to five major American airports to be screened for Ebola as public health officials sent an alert to healthcare workers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday issued an alert to healthcare workers to raise awareness about the outbreak but said there were currently no suspected or confirmed U.S. Ebola cases from the Sudan strain, which is behind the latest Uganda infections. According to Uganda's Health Ministry at least nine people had died of the disease in Uganda by...

    Ebola has spread almost 50 miles through rural communities in Uganda - with cases clustered near a busy road leading from the capital Kampala to the Democratic Republic of Congo, health officials revealed on Thursday. ... “As of today, we have seven confirmed cases of whom we have one confirmed death,” Lt. Col Dr Kyobe Henry Bbosa, who is currently leading Uganda's Ebola response, told journalists. “But we also have seven probable cases that died before the confirmation of the outbreak.” Dr Bbosa said that authorities had not identified the so-called index case or “patient zero”.

    Uganda declared an outbreak of Ebola after a case of the relatively rare Sudan strain was confirmed in the country, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday. The WHO’s Africa office said in a statement the case was confirmed after testing a sample from a 24-year-old man in the country’s Mubende district. Ugandan health authorities investigated six suspicious deaths in the district this month. The country’s health ministry said the 24-year-old patient died after displaying symptoms. “There are currently eight suspected cases who are receiving care in a health facility,” WHO Africa said, adding that it is helping Uganda’s...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday recommended two monoclonal antibody treatments against Ebola, saying the use of such drugs combined with better care had "revolutionised" the treatment of a disease once seen as a near-certain killer. The drugs - Regeneron's Inmazeb (REGN-EB3) and Ridgeback Bio's Ebanga (mAb114) - use laboratory-made monoclonal antibodies that mimic natural antibodies in fighting off infections.

    Since around the middle of May 2022, you will have most likely heard or seen the word Monkeypox mentioned numerous times in the mainstream media. Allegedly, for the first time since its discovery among humans in Africa over 50 years ago, the monkeypox virus is circulating throughout several countries including the USA, UK, Canada, Brazil, Australia and most of Europe all at the same time. But it just so happens that every single country where monkeypox is allegedly circulating is also a country that has distributed the Pfizer Covid-19 injection to its population; excluding some countries in Africa where the...

  • New Bat Ebolavirus Could Jump To Humans, Says Study – But Some Treatments Are Available

    The idea of zoonotic diseases – that is, diseases that jump from animals to humans – is one we’ve all had to become familiar with over the past couple of years. After all, the leading theory on the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic suggests that it was a bat disease before it infected humans. Before that there was swine flu, which came from – you guessed it – swine, and bird flu, which came from a similarly eponymous source. So naturally, it’s in our interest to try to figure out where the next zoonotic disease might come from. A new...

    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace seemed to roll out the red carpet for White House chief of staff Ron Klain to discuss the latest jobs report. U.S. job growth shattered expectations in January, according to the jobs report released Friday from the Labor Department, adding 467,000 jobs, topping the 150,000 jobs gained forecast by Refinitiv economists who were pessimistic with their predictions due to the surge of the omicron variant. The unemployment rate ticked up to 4 percent.

    White House chief of staff Ron Klain has come under fire as Joe Biden's popularity wanes and Democrats struggle to pass the president's huge social safety net legislation. The litany of complaints against Klain, a longtime Democratic insider, goes as follows: He 'micromanages' the West Wing, he's too deferential to the liberal wing of the party, and he pays way too much attention to cable news and social media. Two reports on Klain, 60, this week - timed to the one-year anniversary of Biden's tenure in office - were filled with criticisms about his work. Most are from anonymous sources,...

    The biggest news President Biden made at his news conference wasn't about Ukraine. It was his brief answer to the question: 'Are you satisfied with your team here at the White House, sir?' Biden, to the consternation of observers in both parties, answered curtly: 'I am satisfied with the team.'
