W.H.O. DEMANDS ‘GRATITUDE AND RESPECT’ FOR CHINESE DICTATOR’S CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE

W.H.O. Demands ‘Gratitude And Respect’ For Chinese Dictator's Coronavirus Response

Bizarre comments from Director-General as it becomes clear Communists have lied about scale of global pandemic

Steve Watson  – JANUARY 31, 2020

The World Health Organisation asked Thursday that China be shown “gratitude and respect” for its handling of the deadly novel coronavirus, despite the the widespread belief among health experts and government officials that the Communist state has been covering up the true scale of the outbreak to save face.

After meeting with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared that China needs to be applauded for the “extraordinary steps it has taken to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.”

“China is implementing very serious measures and we cannot ask for more,” Ghebreyesus said, adding “I was very encouraged and impressed by the president’s detailed knowledge of the outbreak and his personal involvement in the outbreak.”

“This was for me a very rare leadership,” Ghebreyesus proclaimed, as the WHO declared the outbreak to be an international health emergency.

Ghebreyesus, a former Ethiopian health minister, also bizarrely praised China’s “transparency,” stating that “China has been completely committed to transparency, both internally and externally, and has agreed to work with other countries that need support.”

The fawning continued as the Director-General urged that “The level of commitment in China is incredible; I will praise China again and again, because its actions actually helped in reducing the spread of the novel coronavirus to other countries … we shall tell the truth and that’s the truth.”

It’s a version of ‘truth’ that not even the Wall Street Journal is on board with, however, given that it has documented how the reality of the situation is being suppressed.

According to the Chinese government, there are now 9,692 confirmed coronavirus cases in China, and the official death toll has risen to 213.

The real death toll appears to be much higher, however, given that those who have succumbed to “severe pneumonia” are not being classed as coronavirus deaths.

In addition, large numbers of victims are still being classified as “suspected cases” despite it being extremely obvious that they have the virus.

The true scale of the situation is not yet known, yet researchers at the University of Hong Kong have estimated that there could be 44,000 victims already.

A model that predicts the number of coronavirus infections that will occur if the outbreak isn’t contained shows that based on current projections, there will be over 183 million infections before the end of February.

Whatever the case, it is quite clear that the Chinese authorities have been anything but transparent, thus it is completely backwards for the World Health Organisation to demand the country’s leaders be afforded any ‘gratitude and respect’.

EBOLA PREPARATIONS UNDERWAY AS CDC, NYC QUIETLY BRACE FOR CONGO MIGRANT SURGE – REPORT

Ebola Preparations Underway as CDC, NYC Quietly Brace for Congo Migrant Surge - Report

Job placement orgs seeking Ebola specialists

By Patrick Howley

The nonprofit Greenville Health System in South Carolina recently published a job posting for an Emergency Preparedness Program Manager whose qualifications should include familiarity with “Ebola grants.”

The ad is still posted on the Greenville Health System website with the posting date July 8, 2019.

Greenville’s private health system now joins a variety of federal, state and city government agencies quietly preparing for Ebola — including the CDC and New York City, which started preparing for an Ebola outbreak as migrants from the disease-ridden Congo made their way to the U.S. southern border. Texas is now home to a “surge” of Congo migrants who crossed the border, with more migrants on their way.

The global tracker Ebola Outbreak Map made another catch:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health, as well as New York City and state and local governments began preparing for a possible Ebola outbreak shortly before the current Congolese migrant invasion on our southern border, as the Congo migrants journeyed from Africa to the United States.

The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department partnered with the CDC and the Kentucky Department of Health beginning in February to monitor people traveling to and from the Ebola outbreak region on the African continent, with the local department acting on guidance provided by the federal and state government bodies.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is a branch of the National Institutes of Health, sponsored a clinical trial beginning in late January at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Ohio to test Ebola vaccines.

The Congo migrant “surge” at the southern border continues, as recently-landed Congo migrants in San Antonio, Texas described their six-month journey to the United States — during which time the government started making Ebola preparations instead of acting to stop the illegal migrant invasion.

This makes New York mayor Bill de Blasio’s pro-migrant agitation at the border even more disingenuous, as I explained on Sunday’s episode of The Campaign Show with Patrick Howley on Patriots’ Soapbox.

I reported:

New York City partnered with New York State to carry out an Ebola outbreak drill in April 2019, right around the time the city started looking for applicants to fill a “short-term” Ebola manager position for the city’s health department.

New York City’s health department issued a little-noticed public release on April 30 entitled “New York City and New Jersey Health Departments Conduct Emergency Exercise to Safely Transport a Simulated Ebola Patient to NYC Health + Hospitals / Bellevue.

Here is a photo of the drill:

The drill, flagged by the global tracker Ebola Outbreak Map, was quietly conducted before the current Congo migrant surge at our southern border hit the press, with Congo migrants flooding into San Antonio, Texas amid the Ebola outbreak in their home country. Congo migrants said in June that their travel to the United States took six months, meaning that New York City was formally preparing for an Ebola outbreak while the migrants were on their way to America.

The city government stated (emphasis added):

“In order to prepare for viral outbreaks occurring in other parts of the world, New York City and State partnered with first responders in New Jersey to conduct an emergency exercise last week to transport a person pretending to be an Ebola patient to NYC Health + Hospitals / Bellevue. Agencies that participated in the drill included the Health Department, NYC Health + Hospitals, the Fire Department of the City of New York, New York State Department of Health, the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and health and law enforcement agencies from New Jersey. The exercise entailed the transfer of a person pretending to be an Ebola patient from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey to the Regional Ebola and Other Special Pathogen Treatment Center at NYC Health + Hospitals / Bellevue in New York City.

Given the current outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is the second largest Ebola outbreak in history with over 1,100 confirmed cases and 700 deaths, it is critical that the healthcare system is prepared to handle an actual case of Ebola or other infectious disease threat. Despite this critical need for readiness, federal funding for Ebola preparedness is set to expire in 2020, placing the future of these emergency response capabilities in jeopardy.

This exercise – the first of its kind between New York City and New Jersey – tested the health care system’s ability to safely move a patient to a clinical setting where Ebola can be most effectively treated…

“New York City is a global city and must be ready to respond when global health issues become local,” said New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. “It is essential for the Health Department to closely collaborate with City agencies, local health care facilities, and our partners in New Jersey so that we can prepare collaboratively for disease threats, like Ebola, and protect the health of New Yorkers when these deadly pathogens appear in our communities…

“In New York City, we need to be ready for anything,” said Laura Evans, M.D., Medical Director of the Special Pathogens Program at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and Co-Principal Investigator for the National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC).”

New York City Health release passage ends

Meanwhile, Bill de Blasio’s city government has been quietly preparing for an Ebola outbreak in other ways.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and its partner Public Health Solutions are no longer accepting applications for the position of: “Ebola and Special Pathogens Program Manager.”

The ad identifies the job as a “short-term project” expected to end in May 2020.

The job posting was flagged by Ebola Outbreak Map, a tracker of the Ebola virus worldwide.

Public Health Solutions, a public health nonprofit, put up the job posting on LinkedInthree months ago, noting, “The selected candidate will be an employee of Public Health Solutions, which is the fiscal and administrative manager of the program, but will work at DOHMH’s headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, NY and be supervised by DOHMH.”

The job posting still exists, as of press time, on Simply Hired and indeed.com.

Since the ad was posted, a wave of migrants from the Congo have entered the United States and stoked fear among people in San Antonio, Texas that they could be carrying disease. An Ebola outbreak is currently underway in the Congo.

The job posting states: “With an annual budget of $1.6 billion and more than 6,000 employees throughout the five buroughs, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) is one of the largest public health agencies in the world, serving 8 million New Yorkers from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds…DOHMH’s Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response (OEPR) promotes the Agency’s and NYC’s ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from health emergencies. OEPR coordinates agency-wide emergency preparedness planning, exercises and training, evaluation of incident response, exercise performance and collaborates with community and healthcare stakeholders, city, state & federal partners on public health and healthcare emergency planning and response.”

The job posting notes: “This is a short-term project (expected to end by May 2020).”

The Ebola outbreak in Africa is growing.

A new World Health Organization (WHO) report confirms this. The United Nations, of which WHO is a part, and which features a report on its website touting “replacement migration” in the United States, refuses to call the Ebola outbreak a global emergency. Migrants from the Congo continue to invade the United States, particularly the state of Texas.

The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy reports: “The World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday in its weekly profile of Ebola activity aired growing concern about case spikes in two Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) areas—Mabalako and Mandima—that were hit hard when the outbreak began last August. Meanwhile, the DRC health ministry yesterday reported 7 new cases, and the WHO’s online Ebola dashboard says there will likely be 13 more today, which would lift the overall outbreak total to 2,297 cases.” Center passage ends

Of course, this is not stopping our globalist central planners from allowing migrants from the Congo to invade the United States, even as a mystery disease has led to three people being quarantined at a private hospital in El Paso, Texas.

The Washington Examiner recently interviewed Congolese migrants in San Antonio. Even the New York Times admits that migrants from the Congo are contributing to a “surge” at the border.

The New York Times admitted that separated migrant children who came over the southern border were being sent to foster care in New York City under mayor Bill de Blasio.

“Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border,” the New York Times reported in June 2018.

“Speaking outside Cayuga Centres in Harlem, one of a group of social service agencies in the state that contract with the federal government to take in unaccompanied minors, Bill de Blasio, the city’s mayor, said 350 children had come through the centre and 239 of them were currently in Cayuga’s care; the agency is not residential but places children in temporary foster care and runs day programs,” the Times reported.

 

Ebola Jumps Borders As Epidemic Rages On

Three cases of cross-border Ebola transmission have been reported in Uganda since the outbreak began in eastern Congo last year, according to the Financial Times. One of the victims, a five-year-old boy, has died of the disease while two of his relatives also tested positive.

On Wednesday, health experts in both countries were scrambling to understand how the boy’s relatives crossed the border on June 9th, and who they may have infected along the way. The boy was taken to a Ugandan hospital after vomiting blood and exhibiting other symptoms, while two relatives of the boy also tested positive for Ebola. Uganda has been heavily screening visitors from Congo for signs of fever, and has vaccinated more than 4,700 health workers against the disease according to a joint statement by WHO and Ugandan officials.

Uganda’s health ministry said the boy’s mother, who is Congolese but married to a Ugandan and living in the Kasese district of Uganda, had travelled back to Congo to nurse her sick father, who subsequently died of Ebola. On returning to Uganda, the boy had started coughing up blood and vomiting and was taken to Kagando hospital where health workers immediately suspected Ebola.

A sample of his blood tested positive for Ebola and on Wednesday two of the boy’s relatives were also confirmed to have contracted the disease. –Financial Times

Over 2,000 cases of the disease have been recorded in the Congo over the last 10 months, with over 1,400 deaths since August. It’s still the second most deadly Ebola outbreak behind the 2013-2016 West Africa epidemic which killed 11,310 people. While it took seven months for the outbreak to reach 1,000 cases – it took just three more months for that figure to double

Efforts to contain the spread have been hampered due to the extreme turbulence in the region. In April, doctors and nurses working in the heart of the Ebola outbreak threatened to go on strike amid threats of violence and actual assaults. Many locals also think Ebola is a Western scam brought to the country by foreigners to make money off the local population.

The World Health Organisation said an expert committee had been alerted about the possibility of a meeting at which it would have the option to declare the Ebola outbreak a global health emergency.

Mark Eccleston-Turner, a global health lawyer at Keele University, said it was essential that the WHO declared an emergency. “A declaration acts as a clarion call to the international community that this is an outbreak that requires further attention — political attention, including resources and finances,” he said.

While Mr Eccleston-Turner called the spread to Uganda “incredibly disappointing”, he added: “The expertise that Uganda has and the fact that this has been discovered quite quickly gives hope that this can be snuffed out.” –Financial Times

As the Times notes, experts had previously warned that if Ebola jumped borders into a neighboring country, it would mark a serious escalation of a crisis that has proven incredibly difficult to manage.

According to microbiologist Peter Piot who helped discover Ebola in 1976, eastern Congo is an “extraordinarily difficult environment to control an epidemic because of armed conflict and community mistrust.”

Meanwhile – guess which country the United States welcomed most of its refugees from in 2018?
