Ebola. The strange case of a British who died in Macedonia. Can a Brit die from Ebola ?
A British man died on Thursday afternoon shortly after he was admitted to the Skopje Clinic for Infectious Diseases with severe stomach ache, internal bleeding and increased temperature – symptoms compatible with Ebola. Staff and guests at Skopje hotel Super 8, where the British man had stayed before he was taken to hospital as well as anyone who came into contact with him, have been put in quarantine.
Ebola has killed nearly 4,000 people in West Africa since March in the largest outbreak on record.
There is no other suspected case of Ebola in Macedonia at the moment but country’s healthcare system is prepared to cope with the worst-case scenario, Kostovska added.
Westminster response to Ebola.
UK Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has updated the uk response to the disease today. Screening and monitoring. Heathrow’s terminal one will start screenings very shortly. People at risk – coming from the infected areas – will be checked. Their temperature will be taken. They would be asked questions about their recent travels’ history, their contacts and, if there is a risk, they would be invited to contact the NHS.
The uk Health secretary acknowledges that openness and confidence were required in the process and, more importantly, it was crucial to deal with Ebola at source. The uk’s contribution to the fight against Ebola is estimated to £125 million. The uk Secretary stressed the necessity for coordination in the international response and said he had a conversation earlier with the American Health Secretary on that issue.
On the front of the UK General Election to come.
Debates are morphing around TVs channels that have come up with a panel of proposals to the candidates. Some would like to see a harsh confrontation between Mr. Cameron and Mr. Miliband, assuming the coalition speaks with one voice. An assessment denied by Lib dems who want to express their difference, their voice as a separate entity able to take the lead of a coalition.
That is why a debate between Cameron, Miliband and Mr. Clegg is another proposal.
ITV is proposing a four-leaders debate, adding Nigel Farage on the list of debators. The green party is waiting for a proposal…
Universal Health coverage, raised up today by Jeremy Hunt’s shadow cabinet alter ego will certainly stand on the road of all those candidates.
Behind the liberation of Chinese hostages, Beijing and Cameroonian regimes’ propaganda.
There is a common trend between Beijing and Cameroon : the absolute interdiction of doing politics to every citizen, without an official authorisation. Hong-Kong is this and, in Yaoundé, the interdiction of « double nationalities » for Cameroonians born, is also that. As long as you don’t want to do politics, you are welcome. If not, you are denied citizenship – the case of Cameroon – or bared from its rights and dividends – the case of the youth actually under barricades in Hong-Kong.
To look legal, those regimes heavily rely on propaganda. The liberation of the Chinese hostages, abducted by Boko Haram could only happen during this Hong-Kong crisis, as a distraction. Where was Cameroon during that times to free those hostages, especially when they communicated earlier of killing one hundred militants of Boko Haram at the Nigerian/Cameroonian frontier ?
Marvelous for the naives. Where are the girls ? How to explain that Cameroonian government can fight and bring down Boko Haram while Nigerian Gov looks so helpless and captive of the militant’s group ?
Who can believe that having killed one hundred of Boko Haram’s fighters, they will just access the Cameroonian demand of freeing the Chinese hostages ?
What a coincidence, at the very moment Cameroon is under fire for resuming slavery methods exiling Cameroonians, along with the permanent trend of its president in changing the Constitution to keep power for life. Robert Mugabe, an authentic African Liberator has been banned by the international community unjustly. L’évangile, the distance between those two presidents is incommensurable : one, Robert Mugabe is a giant African liberator and the other is just ordinary african post-colonialist dictator.
Chinese hostages were freed by a ransom, first and, second, Beijing was the actor and Cameroon the figurant and the scene in the movie.
Democracy is not a favor neither is it a restrictive ticket for Africans inside Africa. This is first. Second, if this comes while Beijing is hijacking and extracting everything they could along with other caritative foundations, clearly labelled Westerner, or private corporations that have bought nearly every big business including Energy, Water supplies in Africa, then those African leaders restoring slavery and exile towards African people are guilty of High Treason. Needly to speak about their so-called lawmakers.
Liberia has postponed its senatorial elections. When you have witnessed the kind of Hell, dirtiness and mud Liberian people dying from Ebola are leaving in, just like pigs wrapped in those white bags supplied by western ships or planes at the epicenter of the outbreak, how a State like that can dare bear a Senate ? The indignation works also with Cameroon. Time will come for Africans to send those inefficient and cynical leaders home and to just wash out those useless, costly and insulting Senates in the face of Africans crumbling under extreme poverty, zero health care coverage and leaving inside sordid slums.
I don’t care about the Chinese hostages being freed, I care about the girls first. Chinese presence in Liberia for instance has led to extreme fishing ; extreme and uncontrolled, while Liberians can not get those shipping licences and concessions nor can they be granted a loan to acquire those fishing ships. They are just good at working for those Chinese ships, under and ill-nurtured during their labor on those slavery ships. They are paid nearly nothing compared to the huge benefits generated by this business.
The crown of this Sirleaf slavery regime is Liberians unable to eat their own fishes because of poverty and meaningless salaries on one hand, and on the other, Chinese businessmen getting richer and richer and the African fish feeding Chinese and starving Africans. With the agreement and complicity of African Leaders, nearly all over the continent.
In exchange, Chinese propaganda is telling they are building roads, bridges, railways, hospitals and sport complex and buildings, etc. What is missing in this propaganda is this question : « at which costs for Africans ? ». Fucking China business in Africa ! I apologize, but this is sickening.
Ebola is an allegory of Africa.
We welcome America in those places and in Africa to reset some kind of equitable order. Eventhough, noone is perfect. The current status quo is unsustainable. By the way, it is unacceptable to give any shelter to those Ghost and inhumane African presidents. Those are murderers. That is why I said earlier that Ebola is an allegory of Africa. It is a disease, this is for sure. It kills, but it is not the only killer. African presidents are the other faces of Ebola, their are contagious and toxic to their people and treators to African hard long History and fights for colonialist Liberation.
At a time when we have the chance Obama is the president of the USA, America should free Africa from this nightmare along with Africans and people loving Africa, whatever their colors. You can be a black man and hates Africans just like a foreigner can bring more to Africa than Africans themselves. The fight for poverty requires to empower Africans on their soil. This is a minimum. So is the fight against immigration.
That is where Nigel Farage (UK) and Marine le Pen (France) far-right racist’s stances concerning Immigration are blind and deaf. Unless you tackle what is going wrong inside North and South business and now East (Chinese) and Africa’s dominium, you can not bring immigration to normalcy. The floods of it will go on, again and again and the amount of sea deaths won’t stop the influx and the pressure.
Actually, immigration is a lose-lose relationship. Nobody wins. Immigration is an impasse. African urbanity is a calamity. Poverty and hunger in Africa is an impasse. Health care is a joke…
The lack of democracy is a highway leading to impasses. End of the road. Beijing is always on the side of democracy restrictors : in Africa, in China and actually in Hong-Kong. Their favorite game is using proxies. Young people of Hong-Kong have seen some today on the barricades : kind of zombies.
It has now become common knowledge amongst academics that Christopher Columbus clearly did not discover America, not least because is it impossible to discover a people and a continent that was already there and thriving with culture. One can only wonder how Columbus could have discovered America when people were watching him from America’s shores?
Contrary to popular belief, African American history did not start with slavery in the New World. An overwhelming body of new evidence is emerging which proves that Africans had frequently sailed across the Atlantic to the Americas, thousands of years before Columbus and indeed before Christ. The great ancient civilizations of Egypt and West Africa traveled to the Americas, contributing immensely to early American civilization by importing the art of pyramid building, political systems and religious practices as well as mathematics, writing and a sophisticated calendar.
The strongest evidence of African presence in America before Columbus comes from the pen of Columbus himself. In 1920, a renowned American historian and linguist, Leo Weiner of Harvard University, in his book, Africa and the discovery of America, explained how Columbus noted in his journal that Native Americans had confirmed that “black skinned people had come from the south-east in boats, trading in gold-tipped spears.”
