CDC Seeks To Use a Bio Safety Level 2 LIVE EBOLA VACCINE With Limited Intramuscular And Lymph Node Spread

The government always announces the scary stuff on Fridays and Holidays to keep it out of the News Cycle, today is no different. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) released a solicitation looking for companies that can formulate and fill live Ebola vaccines.

These live Ebola vaccines are dangerous enough that formulating and filling the vaccine vials "may require that these processes take place in a Biological Safety Level 2 (BSL2) facility."

While the solicitation says multiple live Ebola vaccine types may be in play, only two are specified by name.

"1. RVSVdG eBOV vaccine replication-competent live virus vaccine utilizes a recombinant Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (rVSV) lacking the native VSV glycoprotein (ΔG) and bearing the glycoprotein (GP) of ZEBOV, which is the target of protective immunity. The rVSVΔG ZEBOV is an attenuated virus and capable of limited replication after administration, which is believed to be the basis for the potent immunogenicity of this vaccine vector. 

2. rVSVN4CT1-Z-EboV Vaccine utilizes attenuated replication-competent rVSV vector that is injected IM, it undergoes limited propagation at the injection site and in the local draining lymph nodes, but does not spread to other organs and tissues."

Both of these vaccine use the Vesicular Stomatitis Virus as a delivery mechanism of Ebola proteins chosen to trigger the Human immune system. While not mentioned specifically in this solicitation, there is also a Live Ebola vaccine that uses a Live Rabies Virus as its delivery mechanism.

Unfortunately vaccine work is often pushed on the public as if it were settled science, unfortunately it often is more like well describe Alchemy and Voodoo. A key example being last year's live influenza vaccine which to scientists amazement offered no protection against last year's deadly H1N1 Epidemic. Its possible that that vaccine malfunction may have actually contributed to the pandemic.

Fort Hood Texas Places Urgent EBOLA BioSafety Order Citing "Elevated Risk" Yet Tells The Public Situation is "Low Risk"

Fort Hood Texas just placed an urgent order for a bench top biosafety containment workstation with the capability to provide point of care Ebola testing. In the justification for this equipment the justification cites that soldiers redeploying to Fort Hood may be Ebola infected and that the situation places the Fort Hood population at elevated risk of becoming infected with Ebola.

Of course the military and local civic leaders tell the public something very different than the elevated risk claimed in the sole source justification

The military says:
 “The chances of them having (Ebola) while they are here are very, very slim,”

and the Mayor says:
 “I consider this a very low-risk operation and the right thing to do.”

People who can read probably should come to a different conclusion than what words of safety coming out of the military and the mayor mouths. In fact, a close reading of the document would indicate that Fort Hood does not have a biosafety chain of custody for dealing with the soldiers body fluids. Thats why they've placed an urgent order for a separate bench top bio-containment system. Think DoD should have picked a location with a true medical isolation capability instead of this last minute hodge-podge type thing they are trying to throw together as possibly infected soldiers come flying in.

MAXIMUM ALERT! Ebola Flight Indicates Mexican Ebola Patient In Guadalajara Being Flown To Atlanta For Treatment

Update: 11/18/14

Multiple "Ebola false alarms are reported in the Guadalajara airport" according to last Saturday's local Jalisco newspaper. So what does it mean when there are multiple reports of Ebola cases at an airport, followed by the Mexican State Ebola training 400 Doctors in the same location  for an "eventual case of Ebola", and then to top it off Phoenix Air Group's Ebola Air Ambulance makes a trip to the very same airport and follows a return flight path back to Atlanta indicative of an Ebola patient? 

It also means that an Illegal Immigration surge should be expected, and that they might be infected.

The flight schedule of Phoenix Air Group's 2nd Ebola Ambulance indicates that an Ebola patient is being picked up at the Guadalajara International Airport and being flown to the Fulton County Airport in Atlanta, Georgia.  The destination airport indicates that the patient is being taken to Emory Hospital in Atlanta.

The obviously troubling aspect is that the situation indicates that Ebola is loose in Mexico. It also seems strange that Obama would be willing to import a Mexican Ebola patient when the Mexican government refused to assist in transporting an American under observation for Ebola who was on a cruise ship off of the Mexican coast.

A screen capture of the return flight is shown below as these flights are often rapidly "disappeared" from commercial tracking software.

 We believe this marks the 3rd international Ebola patient flown to the USA in the last 10 days.

#1 An illegal African Immigrant from Gran Canaria Spain on November 9th
#2 A patient from West Africa on November 13; later confirmed to be Dr Martin Salia
#3 Unknown Mexican patient today 11/17/14


It Appears Obama Has Flown an Illegal Immigrant African Ebola Victim To USA From Gran Canaria

Ferguson Looting & Rioting Factors and Analysis: Black Friday, Angry Police, Snitches-Get-Stitches, Jay Nixon & Hair Extensions

Based on the pattern of Looting and Rioting last August tied to the Mike Brown killing in Ferguson it seems possible to estimate the level of looting and rioting to be expected IF the Grand Jury does not indict Officer Darren Wilson

Little known aspects of the August rioting

#1 A Snitches-Get-Stitches ethos drove much of the early rioting and looting

The QuikTrip (QT) was looted and burned on day 1 because of the locals erroneously believed that Mike Brown had stolen the cigars from QT & that they had "snitched" on him.

Once it became clear to the locals that Mike Brown had actually robbed the Ferguson Market and that the stores owners had aided police by turning over video of the robbery, they too received the snitches-get-stitches attack. That anger then spilled over to other Indian owned business in the area like Red's BBQ

#2 Back-To-School Looting and Hair Extensions

After the locals had satisfied their Snitches-Get-Stitches needs, the looting turned to target Back-To-School clothing needs and Hair Extensions. The Hair Extension looting continued long after the last sneakers and shirts had been looted.

Fast Forward to the expected November rioting

#1 Grand Jury Snitches-Get-Stitches Redux

As Grand Jury information  comes out, anyone who provided information that served to exonerate Officer Darren Wilson should expect a Snitches-Get-Stitches backlash

#2 Thanksgiving Black Friday & Christmas Looting

Just as Mike Browns' death coincided with Back-To-School shopping season, the Grand Jury outcome will coincide with Black Friday and Christmas shopping. Compared to school clothing needs, the looting list for Black Friday is much broader and many more stores could be hit. Additionally, all the hair extensions stolen last August are starting to wear out now and a strong looting demand to replenish those hair extensions should be expected.

Police reaction then:

Police over responded like an occupying force in the immediate aftermath of Mike Browns' shooting, in turn angering the local non-criminal but fed up with bad cops subsegment of Ferguson. Shortly after which, militarized police deployed in mass and gave otherwise lawful protesters no where to go except direct forceful confrontation. At that stage, Governor Jay Nixon decided to render the police impotent rather than risk democratic inner city voter rebellion in November.

The result was police chose not to defend business and property from rioters, but rather to flee to impotent staging points. During the worst of this, we overheard police on their radios abandoning the area and informing local homeowners to arm themselves against the rioters.

Police reaction now:

The police likely have lots of built up anger from Jay Nixon's flip-flopping rendering them impotent. And while Governor Jay Nixon's flip flopping will likely continue, he no longer has inner city democratic elections to restrain him from unleashing the militarized police. As such, police over reaction should be expected. But once again, its unlikely police will use direct force to protect property or homeowners.

The broader regional criminal element will likely also be energized to take maximum advantage of Black Friday and Christmas Looting. How the non-criminal local protester element reacts to the situation likely depends on how abused they feel by Governor Nixon's response.

The outsider protester element seems to be agent provocateur and media attention driven, they may be the straw that breaks the camel's back. If the Ferguson McDonalds and its free WiFi burns, they will likely be the forces behind it.

In the end, how bad things get outside of Ferguson is based mostly on how badly Governor Jay Nixon screws things up. How badly things get inside Ferguson is mostly a function of Hair-Extensions demand.

Ebola Vaccination Fury: Johnson & Johnson To Have 1/4 Million Ebola Vaccine Courses Ready By May 2015 & 1 Million By December 2015

According to testimony to be given tomorrow in front of the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations Hearing on “U.S. Government Response: Fighting Ebola and Protecting America”,  The Ebola vaccination furry will be underway by May 2015 when Johnson & Johnson will have 250,000 doses of Ebola vaccine ready to split up between the US government, WHO, &  African Nations.

The obvious outfall of this effort is that American Healthcare Workers should expect mandatory Ebola vaccination within the next year. Johnson & Johnson's time line indicates they will have 1 million full vaccine courses ready by the end of 2015 and 4 million full courses ready by the end of 2016.

"Johnson & Johnson is seeking funding from several government entities to support these efforts but is fully prepared to assure that both Crucell and Bavarian Nordic are financially resourced to ramp up advanced manufacturing and production capabilities to fill the initial deployment of 250,000 vaccine doses by May 2015. Non-stop acceleration of testing and scaling up over the next year is expected to yield one million vaccine courses by the end of 2015 and two to four million by the end of 2016."

It Appears Obama Has Flown an Illegal Immigrant African Ebola Victim To USA From Gran Canaria

EbolaAir Aircraft N173PA appears to have picked up an Ebola Infected Illegal African Immigrant from the island of Gran Canaria and flown him/her to the USA for treatment.

A few days prior a boat load of illegals from Ebola stricken Sierra Leone and Guinea washed ashore on a nudist beach in the Gran Canaria beach of Maspalomas; several of these castaways were reported to have fever and were whisked away literally by the dump truck load.

Based on the evacuation flight path / schedule and the number of times it disappeared and partially reappeared on the tracking software today, our presumption is that this flight is carrying one of the 1st foreign Ebola patients in support of Obama's policy to import foreign Ebola victims into the USA. Given the importance of Gran Canaria to US operations, such an evacuation would make geo-political sense especially since Spain's Catalan region is seeking independence.


CDC is already evacuating DOUBLE the number of expected Ebola infected personnel at a rate of 7 doctors per month

ALERT: USA Setting Up Regional Ebola Centers For A Large Outbreak, Seeks Nationwide Inter-facility Ambulance Transportation

The US Government is expecting an Ebola outbreak in the USA large enough that the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is seeking Ambulance contractors capable of supporting a nationwide ground ambulance service to transport victims to regional Ebola treatment centers, all on a 6 hours notice.
"The source must be capable of providing transportation from virtually any hospital in the United States to one of a number of designated receiving facilities. The source must be able to respond to potential requests within six hours. It is expected that these transports would be within a reasonable distance to allow for safe, ground transportation. In some instances, these transports may be from a sending facility to an airport location"

The key insight from the above quotation is that the Ebola outbreak is expected to be large enough that it cannot be handled by air ambulance transportation to 1 or 2 centers in the United States. Rather, the expected number of Ebola victims is large enough that multiple Ebola "receiving facilities" will be setup to be within a reasonable safe Ambulance driving distance for the majority of the USA.

Should such an Ebola outbreak occur in the USA, such regional Ebola concentration centers may be helpful when outbreak numbers are low. However after exponential infection growth rates start occurring, such centers are more of a place to die than be treated.
