Ebola fever turns into a threat of international importance

Ebola haemorrhagic fever is gradually becoming a threat of international significance. While the epidemic is developing according to all the canons of catastrophe films about deadly viruses or as part of one of the scenarios of the popular multiplatform game Plague Inc. The Ebola fever in West Africa 2014 has already become the most ambitious in stories, while stopping the spread of the disease fails. The number of Ebola victims has already reached 1013 people, the total number of cases was 1848 people. Thus, mortality at the moment reaches 55% of all cases of the disease. It is reported by Agence France-Presse, with reference to the World Health Organization (WHO).


Only on 3 of the day, from 7 to 9 in August, 52 people died in three countries in Africa - Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Previously, never outbreaks of the disease did not cover such a number of people and were not accompanied by so many deaths. For example, in the 1976 year, when fever was first diagnosed in Sudan and Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo), the mortality rate was higher, so in Zaire 318 people died from 280 cases, in Sudan 284 people died from 151 patients. However, never before 2014, fever killed more than 500 in one year, but now thousands have died.

In this case, victims of Ebola already become citizens of other states, including doctors who are trying to help in the fight against the spread of the virus. So, according to media reports that refer to Agence France-Presse, 8 Chinese were placed in quarantine in Sierra Leone because of suspicion of the Ebola virus. Citizens of the People's Republic of China were medical workers who provided care for Ebola patients in this African country. In addition, even the 24 nurses who worked at the military hospital in Freetown were hospitalized with suspicion of the disease.


Among the victims of Ebola, the first European appeared. They became the Spanish priest Miguel Pajares, who became infected while in Liberia. The 75-year-old priest died in Madrid at the Carlos III hospital. His death was reported by the newspaper El Mundo. 75-year-old Catholic priest was brought home by plane of the Spanish Air Force 7 August. Together with him, a nun Juliana Bonoa Boe flew to Madrid, to whom the virus was subsequently not found. At the same time, Spanish physicians initially assessed the state of Pakhares as stable and satisfactory, but then he suddenly became worse. Miguel Pajares has spent 50 years in Africa, all these years he has been involved in missionary work. During an outbreak of Ebola in 2014, he helped patients in the Catholic hospital in Monrovia (the capital of Liberia).

Today, the countries of the planet are no longer isolated from each other, we live in an open world. Every week hundreds of airplanes fly from West Africa. Some of them may very well take people who are carriers of the virus to their homes. For example, in Serbia, 6 people were placed in the quarantine zone for a period of 14 days, who returned to the country from West Africa. In Turkey, 12 August was quarantined by a woman from Nigeria who arrived in the country as a tourist, her diagnosis has not yet been confirmed.

Today, the Ebola virus is one of the worst subcellular killers on the planet. Mortality during some outbreaks of the virus reached 90%. This virus is even less demanding than HIV and does not have the so-called "asymptomatic phase." It is for this reason that the "jungle killer" deals with his victims in just a few weeks. Surviving with such a high mortality rate is real luck or even a miracle, especially in those areas where the fever has been rampant for quite some time. Carriers of the virus in nature are rodents and monkeys that live near human habitation. At the same time, bats are considered the main carrier.

Ebola fever turns into a threat of international importance

Authorities have already declared a state of emergency in Sierra Leone and Liberia. In Nigeria and Guinea, doctors claim inability to control the spread of the disease. Earlier it was reported that the fever reached Canada, but the fact of infection of a Canadian citizen who returned from Africa was not confirmed. However, the current situation forced WHO to declare the Ebola virus an emergency event at an emergency meeting, which is a threat to all of humanity. It has become an international threat, today not only doctors but also the military are focused on it.

Disease carriers

At the moment, bats are recognized as the main distributors of this dangerous disease. People become infected either through direct contact with them, or by eating the meat of bats for food. Dr. Jonathan Epstein Associate Vice President of the Eco Health Alliance notes that the transmission of such viruses from bats and other animals to humans is carried out by expanding the scope of human activity in agricultural practice and land use. As a result, people, willy-nilly or forced, are forced to enter into much closer contact with wild animals. In addition to the above, bats are a real delicacy in the central and western parts of the African continent. Often they are just smoked over a fire. Also cooked from the bats soup. Having learned about the danger that these animals can pose, the Ministry of Health of Guinea has already banned eating and selling bats.

In addition, various monkeys - chimpanzees, gorillas, and also antelope-duikers can act as carriers of infection. Much worse, the virus can also be transmitted simply from person to person. Patients with the Ebola virus infect their relatives and doctors who care for them. Reports of an epidemic in Africa itself have already frightened residents so much that many consciously try to avoid large crowds of people, and some are even afraid to shake hands at a meeting.


Not only live animals or people can be carriers of the virus, but also dead ones. The virus can be released from patients for three weeks. African media have already written many times about cases where relatives were infected with Ebola during a funeral, when direct contact with the bodies of deceased people takes place. After 7 August 2014, the government of Liberia imposed a state of emergency in the country due to the spread of a dangerous virus, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf made a televised address to the nation. In a statement, she noted: "Ignorance and poverty, as well as ingrained cultural and religious traditions continue to contribute to the spread of a deadly disease."

Vaccine against the virus

On Tuesday, 12 August, Reuters reported that WHO and the United States approved the delivery of an experimental Ebola vaccine to Liberia, which began an epidemic in West Africa in early February 2014. According to the agency, US President Barack Obama, together with the Food and Drug Administration, approved a request from a Liberian colleague, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, for the transfer of experimental whey to the country. This drug is expected to be delivered to West Africa very soon, this week.

World Health Organization Director-General Margaret Chan has already authorized the delivery of an additional batch of experimental vaccine against a deadly virus. At the same time, Margaret noted that this drug will be sent for treatment against the virus of Liberian doctors. According to the head of WHO, it is already possible to say about the unprecedented nature of the development of the disease, while further it will only get worse. For this reason, the international community must unite its efforts in order to take control of the situation as soon as possible.


At the same time, Russian experts believe that it is premature to talk about the creation of a vaccine against the virus. According to them, at present all the statements of American doctors are not yet supported by sufficiently serious clinical studies, as well as observations of a new strain of the virus, which, apparently, have become widespread. According to Russian experts, so far the statements of American doctors about creating a successful vaccine are more like an excellent commercial move. Indeed, only experimental drugs currently exist, so Ebola fever is still considered incurable.

Doctor of Biological Sciences Sergey Netesov notes: “At the present time, apparently, the sanitary version of the vaccine is being tested, which is being tested only in the first phase. If this phase passes normally, but this will become known in a few months, then it will be possible to experiment with a group of volunteers. And here everything is more complicated, since the first phase could pass on US citizens, and the second should be carried out already on people with an increased risk of infection, that is, on Africans. ”

The experience of research in this area has the Science Center. Ivanovsky is one of the most closed virological institutes in the Russian Federation. Russian scientists have been conducting their research on this virus for a long time. At the scientific center, hundreds of the most dangerous viruses on Earth, as well as their many strains, are stored in special freezers at a temperature of –70 degrees Celsius. Currently, experts at the Moscow Center are studying Ebola, also working on a universal vaccine.


In addition to the Moscow Institute, another closed research center, Vektor from Novosibirsk, is participating in the vaccine creation program. However, several Russian researchers are already in Guinea. Among them is Mikhail Schelkanov, head of the virus ecology laboratory. According Schelkanova, currently conducted research on the creation of the Russian vaccine. In an interview with Vesta journalists, he noted that the vaccine had quite successfully passed the 5 tests. According to him, the development is entering the final stage, but it is very difficult to say how long the tests will last.

The spread of the disease in Russia seems unlikely. According to the director of the Ivanovskyi Research Institute of Virology, Pyotr Deryabin, there are no optimal conditions for the circulation of the Ebola virus in Russia. The bats that support the virus all the time are adequate hosts for the virus on the African continent, there are simply no such carriers in Russia. In addition, according to specialists, the standard of living in our country is elementary higher than on the African continent, medicine is better developed in Russia, the system of observation of the situation works, and the rules of personal hygiene are observed.

In many ways, the creation of a vaccine was hampered by the fact that its development must be economically justified. At the same time, the spread of Ebola fever is local in nature, which is limited to the natural habitat of the host virus. However, the situation has now changed, the fever has spread to the territory of several states of West Africa, which immediately led to serious problems and intensified work on the creation of a vaccine throughout the world.

    the hosts for the virus on the African continent are bats that support the virus all the time, in Russia there are simply no such carriers.
    - in Russia there are no bats? In the process, this Shchelkanov did not go further than Novosibirsk in Russia ... In general, pharmacists are looking for a new source of income - my opinion!

    It seems they are starting to play the old card again? A threat to the whole world - SARS, bird flu, swine flu and what else was not there, but the question is ... there was always so much tantrum, and then once ... and as if there was nothing, everything mysteriously disappeared.

    A bit strange - the virus has just begun to spread, and the US already has serum. If the serum really works, then the United States will work well. During the crisis, all measures are good ... I hope - I'm wrong.

      But the fact that Russia has its own serum is not a coincidence of the same type? A lot of different studies are being conducted in the world, mainly in universities and research centers in the USA, since they can guarantee normal financing and normal conditions for scientists, therefore a lot of new things come from the USA.

      read the article. USA and Russia have a vaccine (experimental). the disease is known not so long ago, it is especially dangerous - the first group of pathogenicity. it is logical that the development of vaccines was carried out (and is ongoing) both in Russia and overseas. they started talking about the availability of the vaccine and the possibility of its use when the death toll sharply exceeded the death toll in past outbreaks. by and large, the vaccine cannot be used - it is EXPERIMENTAL, it has not passed all stages of verification. solely because of the difficult situation, WHO gave the green light to its use.

    The peak occurred at the time of the rally of African countries in the United States. The main leader was Obama. And then he as the messiah will announce to everyone - boys, I will save everyone! And let's all rejoice, dance, and someone the most capable will jump. Right in Kiev! But the question is not this - but the fact is that everything directly according to the scenario turns out !!

    Well, it’s like the hare’s ears appeared:

    ECOWAS representative in Nigeria is the third victim of Ebola in this country

    RBC 13.08.2014/06/41, Moscow 14:XNUMX:XNUMX The representative of the Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) in Nigeria Jatto Asihu Abdulkudir became the third victim of Ebola in this country, reports the BBC.

    Dead contacted with american Liberian-born by Patrick Sawyer dead from illness after arriving in Lagos. In the economic capital of Nigeria, a total of 10 confirmed cases of Ebola infection were recorded.

    An Ebola outbreak was recorded in March in Guinea. The disease spread to Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. According to the latest WHO data, 1 thousand 13 people died from a fever. 52 of them have died in the last three days.

    Ebola fever is an acute viral highly contagious disease. There is no cure or vaccine for it. The incubation period is from two to three weeks.

    "However, never until 2014 did a fever take more than 500 lives in one year, but now the death count has gone into the thousands."
    Why be surprised? The plague in medieval Europe mowed down "just" 15 million. people, however, this was 1/4 of the total population. So it is here, compare the population density of forty years ago and now .... still add the most likely artificial infection.

    Repost my old comment!
    I hasten to reassure! smile
    I'm not ready to say something intelligible about the origin of the virus, but I can tell you something about its spread.
    The Ebola virus has always been, more precisely, the entire history of conscious observations by his person, that is, from the 60s of the last century. From him as well, with a period of 15-30 years, people were dying. That little, then, in the case of an outbreak, a lot. So there is no need to make a tragedy and surprised faces - he was always there, only now he suddenly received excessive attention. Well, it’s profitable for the Russian Federation - because we just got Crimea to be beaten up by tourists, and with such a beautiful horror story as a terrible tropical fever that is rampant in the not expensive African resorts, the success of Kfm was ensured among our compatriots, especially since the siloviki were already forced go there.
    The Ebola virus has always claimed many lives, I would even say continuously until today. This is due to its amazing contagion - like the flu virus. And the indigenous people themselves are to blame for its serious spread. At the funeral, they have a tradition - to touch the dead man who died from this muck. Well, just touch it, because the population basically does not wash and does not wash their hands. There, even from Typhus, in the literal sense, crowds of people are "dragged" to death. From here and all the infectiousness. And local people simply run away from doctors - they are afraid of isolation in case of a positive result for infection, and go to their shamans for treatment.
    This virus will not spread, because it needs a humid and very warm climate of the equatorial jungle. That is, even to neighboring countries, whose territories are adjacent to the Sahara, this virus will not be able to rush, because it is too dry and hot. They don’t even talk about Europe and Russia, where the average annual temperature is no more than +17 degrees.
    The Europeans who died from this virus are either scientists studying it or missionaries promoting religion in these countries, and there have never been a large-scale epidemic of this virus in territories other than West Africa for the entire existence of mankind.
    Thus, the Ebola virus is a problem exclusively in these countries, and nothing threatens us.
    And the numbers - so even 2 million people die every year from Flu in the world, and this virus has so far claimed only a thousand, and even then only 000 are not Africans.

      At least one normal comment.
      The main panic (rather concern) is only due to the fact that the virus can theoretically adapt to a different climate.
      Transferring him only through contact, the same is not the most dangerous option.
      "Ebola spreads in human communities by transmitting from person to person through close contact (through violations of the skin or mucous membrane) with the blood, secretions, organs or other body fluids of infected people, as well as through indirect contact with media contaminated with such fluids. Funeral rites in which the people present at the funeral have direct contact with the body of the deceased, can also play a role in the transmission of the Ebola virus. Transmission through infected seminal fluid can occur up to seven weeks after clinical recovery. "
      And about biological weapons and war, you need to be a complete idiot to do such viruses you do not explain it to yours, but these are strangers. Vaccines never give directly 100% security, there is always interest that moderates. There is also a chance that the virus will not be susceptible to antiviral drugs and vaccines and as a result, all preparations will go to the forest. Therefore, no one will joke with this.

        paid so much attention because this outbreak has already broken all records for the number of deaths. attention is not excessive: imagine that somewhere in% country_name% of the plague 100 people died. if it’s not enough 100, suppose 1000 died. Will there be much attention? from plague there is a specific treatment and prevention. from ebola - no.

        the ebola virus is poorly stable in the external environment, like most viruses, and when transmitting "person-to-person" it is almost all the same to the temperature. I will explain: suppose on the street -30. just spot how much time you spend at temperatures below 0 per day. house-staircase-public transport (car) -work-public transport-shop-house. flu is also not stable in the environment, but a very large number of people get sick (annually!).

        unfortunately there is a virus in saliva, in the lacrimal fluid - it means that it is impossible to exclude the airborne transmission route.

    You do not catch the chip, dear. The ebola spread, by sheer chance, of course, in the main oil-bearing region of Africa. Just at a time when overseas ears stick out almost every month from the next territory swaying into chaos and instability.

    For the middle zone of the Russian Federation, rest assured, there is your own "ebol." It perfectly tolerates the local climate and is transmitted not only by direct contact.

    Another thing - there is no guarantee that in response there will not be an even more terrible "ebola" somewhere in Los Los Angeles and the rest of San Francisco (where medieval sanitation is already the case).

        The equatorial belt is extensive. And there is more than one day.

        T.N. For some reason, the distribution, less critical in scale and consequences, for some reason began right now and on a compact territory.

        And for some reason, the Ministry of Defense of the cheerful Anglo-Saxon guys is engaged in the fight against Ebola.

        Do you even read a little story? Do you know how much they have already in that same Africa - and the information has been revealed and not even denied (the hearings in Congress were their own on this occasion) - have already done "experiments" with their biological trash?

        Do you seriously think that in the region from which they are pushing China hard, where the arrival of China coincided with the activation of Islamists and other bearers of democratic values ​​- in terms of the epidemic did without ears of Washington?

        And in Kosovo, of course, no one was slaughtered on the bodies of Serbian children and women, the one who didn’t hold the post of prime minister, and the funny guys from the OSCE and NATO didn’t know anything.

    You can not bury patients with plague, it is a hotbed of infection forever, while burning kills the bacteria of the plague.
    The experience of Detachment 731 ... all infected / dead bodies were burned, not buried. probably because it was considered a simpler and more effective way than carbolic acid.

      You can dig in (falling asleep with chlorine and wrapping in cellophane. The coffin is wrapped inside with plastic oilcloth), but the best way is to cremate corpses. By the way, the corpses of those killed in the outbreak of the plague, even with suspicion of the plague, do not open without special need. in principle, these rules are the same for all especially dangerous infections.

      Detachment 731 ALL the corpses were then dug up and burned so that there were no traces left.

    Yeah ... remember recently it was that they were building houses on the former burial grounds of livestock, people who died from anthrax, plague and cholera, and then they are surprised at where the foci of disease arise in these new houses!

    If I’m not mistaken in Omsk, it’s like ... (correct if I’ve made a mistake)

    Examples?
    Yes please! In the Rostov region there is a city called Novocherkassk. examples of construction at burial sites in it:
    - City Children's Clinic (built on the burial site of patients with cholera during the civil years)
    - City maternity hospital (built at the burial site of patients with cholera during the Civil War)
    - 2 LCDs at the burial grounds (pet burial grounds for the entire existence of the settlement)
    - Supermarket (built on the site of a cholera cemetery!)

    You can submit a list of diseases yourself.

    In other cities? Yes please!
    Moscow, construction on the LCD in the abandoned cemeteries. (The company whose advertising on all channels)
