The seasonal Madagascar bubonic plague (September to April), arrived one month early (August), to the poverty stricken island nation of Madagascar, one of the poorest countries in the world.
A vast number of citizens exist on an income of $2.00 a day. For obvious reasons, examinations, treatments, and prophylactic antibiotics are all administered and dispensed free.
When pneumonic plague is suspected, a test giving rapid results is given. There is only a 24 hour window to attempt to save a patients life from this fast killing dreaded disease.
WHO: Plague Madagascar | 02-15 November 2017
… the current outbreak is predominantly [60% +] pneumonic and is afflicting both endemic and non-endemic areas, including major urban centres such as Antananarivo (the capital city) and Toamaina (the port city).
… To date, no new cases of plague have been reported outside of Madagascar.
… When pneumonic plague is suspected a rapid resulting test is given to prevent death from this most deadly form of plague, killing within a 24 hour period.
In a major effort to control the easy spreading of pneumonic plague, cautionary detailed instructions are given for the preparations of bodies for final burial.
For the reporting period (2 – 14 November 2017), any reflection suggesting increases in number of cases, includes cases already existing but had not yet been investigated and reported.
National risk is high, regional risk is moderate, global risk is low.
What’s ‘NEW’ according to sensational reporting:
WHO: New ‘Black Death’ Has No Cure –
“BILLIONS Could Die”
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that a rare and deadly outbreak of the ‘Black Death’ (plague) could see billions of humans killed.
Excerpts from the above news cast:
- The rare version of the plague, known as Marburg virus disease (MVD), is similar to Ebola and can be lethal in 90 per cent of cases.
… “rare version”? –there are no details defining a new/rare version of plague. If pneumonic plague is being referred to in this case, what is rare at the present time, it is the dominant (60% +) plague attacking the population of Madagascar presently.
- Two thirds of the recorded cases in Madagascar are caused by the pneumonic plague, which can be spread through coughs and sneezes and without treatment, can kill within 24 hours.
… “pneumonic plague”; –”an kill within 24 hours” —troubling and tragic as pneumonic plague is, killing within 24 hours, if not detected by a rapid testing medical examination technique, death will be the results. This is not new, quiet ancient history.
In the absence of details describing a new and ‘rare‘ strain of bubonic plague, the title of this posting was most troubling. Pneumonic plague is the most deadly and must be diagnosed or determined in a very short window of time.
Not to over burden readers, and not to lose your attention, as soon as there is a creditable revelation of a new strain; –it will be immediately reported on this blog! Trust me!
–I will share a Congressional Testimony to a Congressional Committee of the USA Congress of a known cure for virus plagues.
