Ebola outbreak: Cases pass 10,000, WHO reports

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease

The Ebola pandemic in Western Africa is at no end as it continues to spread into new cities and nations, (Mali being the newest).  While Ebola has reached into Europe and America, it is by no means at the level of worry as say, the upcoming Flu season will be.  However, that could all change rapidly if one of the strains of Ebola should happen to morph into an airborne strain.

In the meantime, we believe that the articles below should be viewed in the light of warning and awareness, and with the knowledge that bible prophecy does warn us that global pandemics are on the way for the coming Tribulation period.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

Ebola outbreak: Cases pass 10,000, WHO reports
The number of cases in the Ebola outbreak has exceeded 10,000, with 4,922 deaths, the World Health Organization says in its latest report. Only 27 of the cases have occurred outside the three worst-hit countries, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. Those three countries account for all but 10 of the fatalities. Mali became the latest nation to record a death, a two-year-old girl. More than 40 people known to have come into contact with her have been quarantined. The latest WHO situation report says that Liberia remains the worst affected country, with 2,705 deaths. Sierra Leone has had 1,281 fatalities and there have been 926 in Guinea. Nigeria has recorded eight deaths and there has been one in Mali and one in the United States.

Ebola can survive on surfaces for almost TWO MONTHS
The number of confirmed Ebola cases passed the 10,000 mark over the weekend, despite efforts to curb its spread. And while the disease typically dies on surfaces within hours, research has discovered it can survive for more than seven weeks under certain conditions. During tests, the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that the Zaire strain will live on samples stored on glass at low temperatures for as long as 50 days.  

Top Official Contradicts Obama; You Can Catch Ebola From Bus Sweat
Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Dr. Nicole Lurie contradicted President Barack Obama’s claim that the Ebola virus couldn’t be contracted by sitting next to an Ebola victim on a bus during testimony in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. During questioning by Republican Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, Lurie acknowledged that the Ebola virus “can survive” on inert surfaces and that methods of transmission “include perspiration.” International Medical Corps. official Rabih Torbay also said that transmission via close proximity on a bus “could be possible” through perspiration, while Marine Corps Major General James Lariviere remarked that the virus, “can be transmitted through sweat.”
