WHO sounds global alarm over DR Congo Ebola outbreak


The Ebola outbreak in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is now an international health emergency.
The announcement by the World Health Organization was made just days after the virus spread to the city of Goma, a major regional hub on the DRC’s border with Rwanda.
Ebola has claimed at least 1,600 lives in the region in the past year.

And the country’s volatile security situation is complicating matters, as Al Jazeera’s Catherine Soi reports from Nairobi.

  1. Democratic Republic of Congo ( DRC ) declared outbreak of Ebola on 1 August , 2018 , centred in the northeast of the country. During first eight months from August 2018 to about March 2019 , more than 1000 cases were reported in the affected region. However , during three months from April to June in 2019 , number of further cases reported were 1000 new cases, suggesting almost three times increase. Besides , the number of such cases notified since early June 2019 per week has remained still higher , averaging between 75 and 100 each week. These details suggest that Ebola spread alarmingly between April to June 2019 but the month of June showed more rise in comparison. Then comes WHO declaration in July 2019 of Ebola spread in DR Congo – a Public Health Emergency of international concern. In this context , it is apt to refer readers to this Vedic astrology writer’s predictive alert in article – “ World trends in April to August 2019” – brought to public domain widely in March and subsequently on 5 April 2019. The said alert had said that during a period of four and a half months from mid-April to August , particularly in June , in present year 2019 , more care and appropriate strategy may be called for in DR Congo also in relation to the following :-
    “ 6. Health concerns among those who are prone to indigestion , gas formation in the stomach , WEAKENING OF PHYSICAL STAMINA OR IMMUNITY SYSTEM IN THE BODY , BLOOD IMPURITY AND THE LIKE MAY NEED PARTICULAR ATTENTION.” Since Ebola destroys immunity stamina or immunity system in the body , the alert can be construed to be meaningful.

  2. Let’s see we can do something there …. we can move mountains for war and spend billions for weapon let see if we can save people!

  3. Anything named World…., or United Nations…, or Global…. are funded and run by jew Globalists. They create a problem then present the solution that favors their agenda.
    These organizations need to be extinguished with extreme prejudice.

  4. Ebola, the virus, has been discovered in Congo DRC early 70th. Five decades later, WHO affirms ‘the Ebola outbreak in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is now an international health emergency’. In every certainty if they have cared through caution, preventive policies there wouldn’t have been outbreak.
    Few months ago we have seen tragedies of Ebola in Sierra Leone, West Africa, Congo, East Africa where thousands have died. WHO knew the state of disrepair of health care structures in Africa;
    WHO also knows the devastating effect of the Ebola virus, why not maintain the emergency alert knowing that there is no vaccine available?
    Maintaining the alert could have had a psychological effect that provokes preventive attitudes.
