  • Liberia Shuts Border Crossings to Slow Ebola Spread: Allafrica
  • Only major border crossings at Roberts International Airport, James Spriggs Payne Airport, Foya Crossing, Bo Waterside Crossing, Ganta Crossing to remain open, AllAfrica.com says, citing Liberian govt statement.
  • At those entry points, testing centers to be set up; “stringent” preventive measures to be announced
  • New travel policy by Liberia Airport Authority on inspection, testing of all passengers to be strictly observed
  • There will be restrictions on public gatherings incl. solidarity marches, demonstrations
  • Hotels, restaurants, entertainment centers, video clubs to play 5-min. film on Ebola awareness, prevention

It was a few short hours ago when we reported that as part of the escalating Ebola epidemic in West Africa a US doctor, Kent Brantly had himself succumbed to the deadly virus. Moments ago we found out that a second US doctor from the same aid organization in Liberia, Nancy Writebol, has been infected with Ebola.

  1. One other thing I discovered while digging around about the disease itself………….it didn’t exist before 1976.
    Look to the labs, their owners are doing this…….it is spreading far too quickly and from too many areas at once. I read somewhere it was coming on planes, but my readings about the disease requires personal contact with fruit bats, (perhaps their fleas) which are carriers…..not through the air.
    I have just heard of someone suffering with some of the early symptoms in WA state…….if so, the third I have heard of, they are keeping a cap on news about it as usual……it has been in the US for some time. Infected animals, cows, pigs, etc……..they have already been feeding humans in the US are the key source, not airplanes.
    Thanks for posting this important story. On one discussion, I posted a short article from the CDC about the symptoms, etc. It isn’t enough, I am certain of that, but better than nothing. If I find more, I will post it here for you.

  2. Here is another article about Ebola from the WHO, much better than any other I have found. So many diseases would have to be tested and eliminated before looking for Ebola tells me the US’s claim of being prepared is total hogwash. Nobody can prepare quickly for such an illness…..too many others must be eliminated first.
    As usual, the US lies again.
