The Secrets Behind the Plague Doctor’s Terrifying Costume

The Secrets Behind the Plague Doctor’s Terrifying Costume:

The plague doctor is arguably one of the most enigmatic figures to have emerged from the Middle Ages. These were European physicians who specialised in treating victims of the plague, the best known of which being the Black Death. Whilst plague doctors have been plying their trade since the Middle Ages, it was only after this period, during the 17 th century, that they acquired their trademark costume. The outfit of the plague doctor is the most iconic (though a little anachronistic) symbol associated today with the Black Death, and the plague in general.

There is no way to stop the planet wide spread of the black death

I’ve recommended in 2014 here…

Scientists Find Ancient Plague DNA In Teeth

… that…

If ever there will be another plague pandemic you can ‘vaccinate’ yourself homeopathically (without any side effects).

Here you can (still) get nosodes in an excellent quality:

Remedia.at

I would buy a C 200:

Yersinia pestis

But now I’ve noticed, when wanting to send a link of this homeopathic remedy,  to several of my contacts/readers and to post this info again, that…

“Unfortunately your requested remedy is currently out of stock.”

Hmmm. Interesting.

There Is No Way to Stop the Planet-Wide Spread of the “Black Death:

The Black Death is thought to have originated in the dry plains of Central Asia, where it then travelled along the silk Road, eventually reaching Crimea by 1343. From that point, it was most likely carried by Oriental rat fleas   living on the black rats that were regular passengers on various merchant ships. Then this “Black Death” spread throughout the Mediterranean and Europe.

The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30–60% of Europe’s total population. All together, the plague may have reduced the population of the world from an estimated 450 million down to 350–375 million in the 14th century. The world population, as a whole. did not recover to pre-plague population levels until the 17th century. This was largely due to the fact that the plague recurred as outbreaks in Europe until the 19th century. Now, humanity is looking at the potential for a similar scourge. This is not a statement to made lightly because the devastation lasted over 300 years. The most amazing thing about the spread of the pathogen, was that the enormous number of victims, as well as the vast geography that the disease covered, was accomplished without the aid of carriers spreading the disease without modern air travel.

A Pathogen Like No Other

The disease cannot be eradicated, thus leaving a feeling of helplessness among humans seeking to eliminate the plague. Writing for The Conversation, Professor Allen Cheng, infectious disease expert at Monash University, described the airborne plague as “unusual” due to the number of cases reported in major cities. Cheng stated “It’s not possible to eradicate plague, as it is widespread in wildlife rodents outside the sphere of human influence.”

Evidence mounts that PLAGUE outbreak in Africa is an engineered depopulation bioweapon

Evidence mounts that PLAGUE outbreak in Africa is an engineered depopulation bioweapon:

Thousands of people have been infected and over 143 are now reported dead from the plague outbreak that’s now threatening Africa, reports the UK Daily Mail. “Health officials are unsure how this year’s outbreak began,” reports the paper. “Experts warn the disease spreads quicker in heavily populated areas.”

Isn’t it interesting that just as Prince William is calling for “urgent depopulation efforts” in Africa, we suddenly have the rapid spread of the plague from unknown origins? As Natural News previously reported, Prince William appears to be pushing for depopulation efforts across Africa in the name of environmentalism:

The Pneumonic Plague Is Spreading: Warnings in 9 Countries

The Pneumonic Plague Is Spreading: Warnings in 9 Countries:

Madagascar isn’t getting this epidemic of the pneumonic plague under control as everyone had hoped. In fact, the opposite seems to be true.

When I wrote about the plague less than two weeks ago, I cited a source that said there were 200 infections and 33 deaths. As of today, those numbers have increased dramatically to more than 1300 infections and 124 deaths.

According to many infectious disease experts, the outbreak has not yet reached its peak. It’s urgent that we stay up-to-date on this epidemic so that we can be prepared if it goes worldwide.

Madagascar plague outbreak: WHO helps countries prepare for further spread after death toll rises to 124:

World Health Organisation intervenes to stem outbreak that has infected 1,200

An outbreak of pneumonic plague in Madagascar has infected 1,231 people and caused 124 deaths since the start of August.

Nine countries and territories with trade and travel links to Madagascar, including tourist hotspots like Seychelles, Mauritius and the French territory La Réunion, have been advised to review their protocols for quarantining infected visitors.

The World Health Organisation (WHO), which has been helping countries to prepare, told The Independent  this was normal practise and “not directly linked” to the risk of the disease spreading.

Plague is endemic to parts of Madagascar with around 500 cases reported annually. But the current outbreak has reached densely populated cities and regions where it is not usually present, and are less prepared to handle cases.

– Madagascar Hospitals On High Alert: “No One Is Safe” From The Black Plague:

Travelers are being warned to keep their distance from areas of Madagascar affected by the bubonic plague. As the outbreak worsens, some doctors are even warning that “no one is safe” from the disease.

The outbreak of the black plague in Madagascar has so far killed 97 people, and doctors are warning that it will be continuing to spread and worsen, meaning no one is safe. Health officials say the disease, which contributed to the deaths of more than 50 million people in Europe during the Middle Ages, has spread from rural areas to the more urban areas not usually affected. Hundreds of cases are reported on the tropical island every year, but experts are warning the epidemic is “much more dangerous” than in previous years.

More than 100 have been killed and 1,300 infected with the pneumonic plague since August. The outbreak has led to UK authorities warning Brits off visiting the African wildlife paradise.

WORLD health experts today warned an outbreak of the Black Death in Madagascar will get even worse.

More than 100 have been killed and 1,300 infected with the pneumonic plague since August – leading UK authorities to warn Brits off visiting the African wildlife paradise.

And now health officials are warning things will get even worse before they get better.

Olivier Le Guillou of Action Again Hunger said: “We have not yet reached the peak.”

Health officials say the disease has now become much more contagious because it is now being transmitted from person-to-person through the air as well as from animals to humans through infected flea bites.

57 Dead, Over 680 Infected As Madagascar Plague Outbreak Escalates

57 Dead, Over 680 Infected As Madagascar Plague Outbreak Escalates:

An outbreak of the plague in Madagascar is spreading at an unprecedented rate.

With the ease of spreading the plague, the likelihood that this disease will move to other more densely populated regions of the planet has become a huge concern for many.

So far, the plague has claimed 57 lives and infected more than 680 others. These figures are from October 12, however, and the disease is spreading rapidly. An estimated 329 of these cases and 25 of the deaths were in the capital city of Antananarivo. Of the 684 cases reported as of October 12, 474 were the pneumonic plague, 156 bubonic and 1 septicemic plague. A further 54 were unspecified, according to the World Health Organization. Of Madagascar’s 114 districts, 35 have reported cases of plague, including at least 10 cities.

WHO Warns of Dangerous Madagascar Pneumonic Plague Outbreak

WHO Warns of Dangerous Madagascar Pneumonic Plague Outbreak:

The World Health Organization (WHO) sent over a million doses of antibiotics to the African island nation of Madagascar after it was hit by an outbreak of pneumonic plague, the most virulent form of the deadly disease.

The plague outbreak in Madagascar island has resulted in some 200 confirmed infections and more than 30 deaths since August. Although the disease is endemic to the Indian Ocean island nation, with hundreds of cases reported annually, it normally hits in the form of Bubonic plague, transmitted when people are bitten by infected fleas carried by rats. Those outbreaks generally occur in remote rural areas of the island.

H/t reader squodgy:

“All these little incidents seem to be co-ordinated experiments.
Without being alarmist, the similarity with the way we were introduced to Bird Flu, Zika and Ebola in recent years, plus the mutating of the viruses by design to make them totally lethal, is indicative of the real probability of concerted deep state de-population programmes in the not too distant future.”

Plague cause of death for star Colorado high school athlete (RT, June 22, 2015):

Colorado officials have confirmed that a rare strain of plague was responsible for the death of Taylor Gaes, 16, who suddenly fell ill on June 8 and died later that day.

Authorities say the boy likely contracted septicemic plague — effectively a rapidly-moving bacterial infection that enters the bloodstream directly — from infected fleas or a dead animal on his family ranch in Cherokee Park near Fort Collins, according to Larimer County Health Department spokeswoman Katie O’Donnell, the Denver Post reported.

The Larimer County Health Department has called for anyone who attended the boy’s memorial service on his family’s farm to be mindful of any potential flu-like symptoms.

China Seals Off Yumen City After Outbreak Of Bubonic Plague (ZeroHedge, July 23, 2014):

With Colorado suffering from pneumonic plague, and the dreadfully sad report of Sierra Leone’s chief Ebola doctor contracting the virus, it appears China is taking no chances. As Yahoo reports, Chinese officials have blocked off parts of Yumen, a city in northwest China, preventing about 30,000 of the city’s people from leaving after one resident died from bubonic plague. About 150 people who had contact with the plague victim have been placed under quarantine but US experts are perplexed at the response, there’s something here that we don’t know, because this seems a very expansive response to just one case.”

As Yahoo reports,

A city in China has reportedly been sealed off after one resident died from bubonic plague, but this way of trying to contain the disease is puzzling to infectious disease experts, who say the response seems extreme given the information released about the case.

Three More Cases Of Most Deadly Form Of Plague Found In Colorado

Scanning electron micrograph depicting a mass of Yersinia pestis bacteria

Three More Cases Of Most Deadly Form Of Plague Found In Colorado (ZeroHedge, July 20, 2014):

It has been quite a week for geopolitics: first the BRICs openly defied the legacy developed world system with the formation of a BRIC bank and the creation of a $100 billion currency reserve, promptly followed by the latest and most severe round of US sanctions against Russia, followed even more promptly by the tragic disaster of flight MH 17 which sadly will turn out to be nothing but yet another provocative attempt to unleash war and change the Russia-European energy balance of power, masked by public fury at the death of several hundred innocent bystanders. And speaking of innocent bystander deaths, nothing tops Israel’s decision to roll out the tanks into Gaza just hours following the Ukraine tragedy, and sending the death count on the Gaza side soaring and well into the 300s. All in all – a very disturbing week, which however nobody who was looking at the S&P 500 would realize.

It has also been a very busy week for viral epidemiologists, who have been following the ongoing Ebola epidemic in West Afrca, which has claimed over 600 lives by now and has become the worst Ebola breakout in history, with anxiety and dread. But what may soon be even bigger news is what we reported a week ago, namely that a Colorado man is infected with the rarest and most fatal form of the pneumonic plague, an airborne version that can be spread through coughing and sneezing.
