    Need for public funding

    Ok, fair enough and points well received regarding flu. Yes, Congress should allocate more money for research, especially in light of the Barda "brain child" Novavax showing how well the money can be spent. But I draw the line at that point, within our own US funding mechanisms and research...i.e. corruption at Barda and CDC are NON EXISTENT. If we were to lark down the trail of a WHO modeling program, one might as well pour their money down the drain. I have always stated that Barda, CDC et al are the BEST Government Agency's within our system.

    Bottom line from my view, let R&D work it best they can. And when effective vaccine becomes available like the NVAX ebola vaccine the world should then pass the hat.

    The VA brother is a whole nother subject we do not have time for, and I say that with tragic somber.

    Ok, fair enough. But what happens when we review ebola, that has been around for a loooong time with plenty of time to work on it - yet, here we are with an ebola code that decimated W. Africa? Same thing with mers? Variable Flu does not contain the argument that Government Programs are terribly inefficient and surely prone to corruption. For me, I care not either Apple or Orange, Barda had nvax chasing H5N1with ebola/mers right under their nose. Any sort of "worldly funding" will end up looking exactly like the United Nations. You gives us YOUR MONEY and we will go spend it "wisely". I think Paul Allen learned an important lesson from W. African donations, most of the "vehicles" for ebola work are MISSING. Like it or not, the street tread world is vastly different from the altruistic world of make believe. Food rations for ebola victims were being fed to security dogs, the ebola quarantine got a small biscuit...

    I don't make the rules and neither should Governments...they cannot tell the difference between an apple or an orange.

    Sounds like more "ebola" insanity coming from Ballou. We cannot even get the right code for a seasonal flu, but some larded up program is going to tackle our toughest challenges. It appears GSK has lost the technology war, so they will offer their #$%$ for Government boondoggle. When we get done laughing, we will go get drunk to try and sober up.

    Ebola INSANITY has arrived with the virus. I quote a farking Doctor from the article. Article is tooooo choppy to reprint. Here is the quote from ebola insanity.

    "The nice news here is that she's beaten the virus once so she can probably beat it again."

    Heart warming news from a DEADLY VIRUS CODE or Ebola insanity?

    Also, the news lull in Philippines depict a serious predicament. Here is the quote from Thailand...

    BANGKOK: A Thai resident who just returned from a pilgrimage in Mecca, is suspected of catching the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), announced a health office in Thailand’s southern province of Yala on Thursday (Oct 9).

    The 62-year-old man is currently in quarantine and being tested and hospitalised in special treatment centre, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported.

    This is the second MERS suspected case in just two days in the country after a 59-year-old woman who lives in Yala, was admitted to hospital on Tuesday with the flu-like symptoms of high fever, cough and breathing difficulties.

    This year, about 10,400 Thais performed the haj and are expected to return to the country by end of this month. Most of the MERS cases have sourced from the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia.

    MERS Corona virus belongs to the family of corona viruses which also includes SARS which haunted Asia in 2003. It has a much higher fatality rate than SARS and there is no cure or vaccine.

    Thailand confirmed its first case of the MERS on June 18 when a 75-year-old entrepreneur from Oman, who was tested positive, was successfully treated in Bangkok.

    Yes. South Korea blinked, and it was all over them that fast. What is odd, I did read some time ago that experts felts that a vaccine would do very well against this virus code. Obviously, our ebola vax should do spectacular since ebola is a close cousin of RSV. cosaman, they will come a point in time when the luxury of dithering will be lost. Potentially, in the not too distant future these codes will make themselves much easier to latch onto...

  • DHS has quietly moved people to the Philippines in an attempt to better understand the mers situation and to have close contact with the Philippine Authority. Look people, the infection rate for a non hospital cluster is quite high. We are talking 5 mers cases from a contact rate of 75 people. With many contacts unaccounted for. Which strongly suggests we are dealing with a more easily transmitted virus code.

    Also, the DHS has instructed the Philippines not to discuss matters. Quite frankly this development is mind boggling when one takes into account Barda is dragging their feet on mers...

    Look, we have quite strong contacts in both the Philippines and Hong Kong. Two security threshold locations.

    My contact in Hong Kong is stating that H7N9 has mutated...

    Taipei, Oct. 7 (CNA) Taiwan has raised a travel advisory for China's Zhejiang Province by one level after an H7N9 avian flu case was reported there Oct. 2, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said Wednesday.

    The patient, a 62-year-old woman, had been exposed to birds two weeks before developing symptoms and is currently under intensive care, the CDC said, citing Chinese health officials.

    Issuing a level-two alert for Zhejiang, the CDC said travelers to the province should take careful precautions.

    They should avoid contact with live or dead birds, pay attention to personal hygiene and seek medical attention immediately if they develop symptoms such as a fever or a cough, the CDC said.

    Other cities and provinces in China are still on the level-one watch.

    The agency uses a three-tier warning system, with level three being the most severe, meaning that people are advised against traveling to the destination.

    Keep us posted. I think this is just the beginning for some of the fall out. I remember the BIG Chinese/WHO kavooki dance two years ago with H7N9. They made it sound like the Chinese had tracked down everyone with "infection" and all contacts were accounted for blah blah blah when there was NO WAY they could have done that.

    The fact that we have 3 mers cases in Phillipines with only about 75 potential contacts, says we have about a 4% infection rate - which happens to coincide with numbers of a more easily transmitted type of mers.

    People, this Saudi was NOT on vacation and had many people with him. It is my understanding that some of "his associates" DID NOT return to Saudi Arabia - though they have left the Philippines...

    Frankly, I remain STUNNED that no one activated the mers program. It is beyond naïve...the Philippines are looking toward the WHO and the WHO are looking at their shoes.

    Here is where the story takes a very strange twist. My source is saying that this guy from Saudi Arabia was on the US "do not fly" list. We have a very strong contact in the Philippines...there is a belief the Saudi wanted to go to "Miami" but was denied.

    If there are now 3 there is a likelihood there could be many, many more. It is crazy to believe they have "accounted" for everyone the Saudi had contact with? The guy was embalmed and husked away...he

    A suspected MERS-infected Saudi national who died last week in Manila appear to have transmitted the virus to three persons who had close contact with him.

    The three have been admitted to the hospital after showing symptoms of the virus, the Department of Health (DOH) announced.

    Health Secretary Janette Garin said the three had been screened for the virus but the results of the laboratory tests had yet to be released.

    “A total of 10 contacts have been traced. Fifteen are symptomatic but only five are being closely monitored,” Garin said in a text message to the Inquirer.

    Initially, only 12 people — mostly hotel and hospital staff — were confined at the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine in Muntinlupa City and San Lazaro Hospital in Manila for symptoms.

    The initial findings were negative but they will have to undergo a second round of screenings. They will be confined at the two hospitals until the end of the 14-day incubation period on Oct.13.

    These were the people, out of 93 contacts originally traced, who had been in contact with the 63-year-old Saudi national before he died while on vacation in the Philippines on Sept. 29.

    The tourist from Jeddah arrived in Manila for a three-week vacation on Sept. 17 and got sick on Sept. 26, developing cough, high fever, and chills.

    On Sept. 28, he was brought to a private hospital by hotel staff and medical personnel. He died the next day.

    But the DOH could not yet officially declare him to be the country’s first death due to the virus due to the lack of tests that could confirm MERS infection.

    Garin met with WHO on Monday to determine whether the patient could be considered the country’s first MERS death.
