“Today we are discussing that we will have enough of Triazoverin vaccine in two months so that we can send them to our personnel in Guinea and test its efficiency in clinical conditions,” Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said. The vaccine has so far proved efficient against various hemorrhagic fevers, including the Marburg virus which is very similar to Ebola.
Red Death: In the wake of Dallas's nurse's diagnosis, Friedon now says Ebola protocols must be changed ~ link ~ Guess how many Biosafety Level 4 hospital beds there are in the ENTIRE USA...a total of 19!!!

CDC considers moving patients to specially-equipped hospitals. Peter Alexander reported on NBC Nightly News (10/13, story 2, 1:55, Alexander), “For the first time, the CDC says it’s considering the idea of transferring patients with Ebola to one of those specially equipped hospitals which safely and successfully treated the first three Americans with the disease.” Dr. Richard Besser was asked on ABC World News (10/13, story 4, 1:05, Muir) why Pham is not being taken to one of those facilities, or one of those teams is not traveling to Dallas. Besser said, “That’s a conversation a lot of people are having.”
Red Death: Georgia county threatened to cut off hospital sewer lines over Ebola ~ link ~ Good for them. The county officials did NOT accept the CDC nonsense that it is safe to use sewer lines to dispose of Ebola fluids! Stirling
Speaking at the Infectious Disease (ID) Conference last week in Philadelphia, infectious disease expert Dr. Bruce Ribner recalled some of the shocking challenges officials had to deal with after two Ebola patients were brought to Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital in August. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Ribner explained how doctors utilized a containment unit that the Centers for Disease Control built at Emory 12 years ago, which was intended to deal with situations like the two “high-intensity” Ebola patients who were losing up to 2 1/2 gallons of fluid per day. But apparently DeKalb County did not have faith in the CDC precautions because Dr. Ribner said that officials threatened to cut the sewer lines if the hospital tried to dispose of any Ebola-tainted waste.
The Wall Street Journal reported that DeKalb County made the threat “despite guidance from the CDC that sanitary sewers can safely accommodate patient waste.” In the end, the hospital was forced to sanitize all toilet waste with bleach for five minutes before flushing it down the sewer.

Crude Oil Crashing ~ link ~ The lower crude oil prices are a form of economic warfare against Russia and Iran by Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia, at the new low prices, is about at its break even level that it has to have from its crude oil sales for its government spending. That level is well below what Russia needs and very below what Iran needs. Hence the price of oil is tied into the developing regional Mideast war and the piecemeal WWIII. Stirling
