The Ebola outbreak is still going strong in the Congo

Ebola has not reared its ugly head in the U.S. since 2014. But the deadly virus is a major problem in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

According to an update this week from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the current Ebola outbreak there has reached 3,004 cases with 2,006 deaths.

Although the illness is happening in a foreign country, it’s the CDC in the U.S. that’s taking part of the lead on trying to bring the outbreak to an end. Sadly, Ebola has been a fixture in the DRC for years, now.

According to CDC, Ebola cases are now reported in 29 health zones and in a new province where the disease had not previously been observed: South Kivu.  

“Far too many lives have been lost in this Ebola outbreak. The DRC, U.S. government, and international partners are working hard to overcome the significant challenges to stopping the spread of this disease in DRC. CDC is prepared for a long-term public health response in DRC and its neighboring countries, and we agree with our World Health Organization colleagues about the need for a change in the response to bring this outbreak to an end.

CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D.

CDC says that starting September 1, it will have 30 responders on the ground. They will be assigned to work on “case investigation, contact tracing, disease tracking, safe burials, community engagement and risk communication, laboratory testing, and border health.”

  1. Thank you for the update on this. I follow a couple of bloggers who post regularly about Ebola, but few of the media outlets do. I always appreciate that you notice the topics that are important to us.

  2. Sadly, Ebola outbreaks are common in that area of the world. The outbreak starts in rural areas, and then carried by people into the city. The last outbreak that brought patients to the US…was a strain being worked on in the city there…by the CDC. Also worth noting, Congress passed legislation in 1992 allowing key personnel and agencies to file patents…and financially gaining from them. The US Ebola debacle was to get the CDC vaccine rolling. However, the patients who received the vaccine had adverse side effects.
    So…the CDC .is in business with an industry they should be the watchdog over. Every time there’s a “crisis”, I wonder what decisions are being driven by $$$.

    1. Hi Lisa,
      Thanks for the info. I agree with you that many events are being ‘engineered’ for the outrageous vaccines=against-everything push that the UN promotes. Zika, for instance, does not cause any harm to anyone yet it is still being marketed, I assume to fund the Dengue vaccine research and to promote the gmo mosquitoes.

      I am a “common sense vaccine supporter’ I don’t think it appropriate to mix vaccines willy nilly, to arbitrarily vaccinate for non-fatal illnesses such as chicken pox, or to use such an aggressive vaccine schedule. I want ethical vaccines that are not made from fetal cells. On the other hand, I got my dpt (or tdap or whatever they call it) booster last year, by choice, and my children and my grandchildren have all had their shots on time.

      I’ve become increasingly concerned about how the industry is doing its testing on third-world people by vaccinating whole communities by mandate from their own governments. I don’t think their tests are following any ethics that would be required in developed nations. They often lack the infrastructure to care properly for the medicine and sanitation, and when people die the CDC/WHO say oh “it was contaminated by improper handling after it left the lab” as tho that excuses anything. One example was the recent deadly consequences of a new Dengue vaccine “trialed” in Philippines, and given to people who never should have been candidates for it.. Even NPR reported on that travesty. They are treating these peoples as tho their children are somehow “less valuable” than ours are and that it just not right.
