Re: <<Advancing Bird Flu-H5N1...Now following MERS and Ebola approaching PANDEMICS>>>
Though it is highly likely that any pilgrims intending travelling to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj and Unrah will be fully aware of the Saudi geography, this post gives an indication for where the latest cases have been in geographic terms, that might at least offer some helpful knowledge to those still collecting their travel information.

[This update is related to the 3 newly reported cases of MERS-CoV infection identified in ProMED-mail post MERS-CoV - Eastern Mediterranean (27): Saudi Arabia, RFI 20130614.1773220. Additional information is on the severity of the illness in the 2 cases from Taif Governorate, although the report on the MOH website did mention both cases were being treated in the ICU, suggestive of serious illness.

It does appear that severe illness seems to be associated with pre-existing disease, albeit the nature of these pre-existing diseases has not been fully described. It would be interesting to see the results of the epidemiologic investigations into these cases.

As mentioned in the earlier ProMED-mail post, Al-Taif is a city about 62 miles (100 km) to the southeast of Mecca in Mecca province. Wadi ad-Dawasir is a town in Riyadh Province, Saudi Arabia, in the Dawasir valley. Both locations can be found on the map at [link to www.atozmapsdata.com] (with slightly different spellings). - Mod.MPP]

Re: <<Advancing Bird Flu-H5N1...Now following MERS and Ebola approaching PANDEMICS>>>
At this point in time and with the background that authorities are not attempting to slow the flow of pilgrims to Saudi Arabia, I do wish to offer my best wishes to all those that choose to attend their religous duties this year.

I hope that the experience will be of special spiritual significance to those who follow their ancient religous traditions and that they are positively affected by this intense celebration.

I would also hope and wish that not one attendee has any type of negative impact from their acts of devotion.

That would be a tragedy of unthinkable proportions, so for those that do read this and are attending please be vigilant and ever thoughtful for your welfare and that of your brothers and sisters.

This year in particular, please ensure that you carry sufficient antiseptic solutions and disposable hand and surface wipes and please use them gererously, especially when touching surfaces that have common use.

Appropriate face masks for high public concentration events would be highly recommended.

Please, while highly difficult, attempt to maintain a good personal space around you.

Avoid being anywhere where someone appears to be coughing and sneezing or generally unwell and if you can try to encourage them to seek immediate medical assistance and isolation from others.

If you do need to cough or sneeze then it is of utmost importance to NOT cover your face with your hands, rather sneeze into a disposable tissue, dispose of it immediately and wash you hands.

Never use a handkerchief.

If you dont have tissues available then cough or sneeze into the crook of your bent elbow facing away from other people.

And finally let me again wish you all a rewarding experience that will be spititually beneficial and physically harmess.

arkay.

"The Hajj will not be canceled this season due to coronavirus"

Coronavirus, the virus that has so far 32 dead in Saudi Arabia, does not seem to deter thousands of Algerians who want to go to the Holy Places to perform the fifth pillar of Islam.
Neither the Algerian authorities, or the National Hajj, or people who want to perform the rites of Hajj or Umrah not intend to cancel this season they visit the holy places of Islam. Saudi Arabia recorded his 32nd death Monday. In addition, three new cases of coronavirus Seas were recorded in the kingdom, with 49 confirmed cases.

Contacted by The Time Algeria, the Director General of the Office of the Hajj and Umrah, Cheikh Barbara, said the Hajj will not be canceled this season: "Although the Saudi authorities have lowered the quota of Algeria and other countries, but we do not cancel the Hajj and Umrah. "

According to him, the proposal by Saudi Arabia to argue lower quota thesis is valid. "The construction of the Grand Mosque are the only reason that prompted the Saudis to reduce the quota," he argued. He further denied that the "syndrome" of coronavirus is the cause of several deaths in this country is the cause. "It is not because of the coronavirus," he said.

Construction of the Great Mosque began years, and other extension work has been done to the site, but this is the first time in history that the number of Hajj pilgrims is reduced. This decision will certainly have an impact on the management authorities of other countries, who have seen their quota reduced. Algeria, the first country to have prepared this pilgrimage season, and have moved on site, will not be spared by this limited quota. Mr. Barbara was adamant about it.

Well something very unusual and intrigueing appears to be manifesting itself at present here on our treasured thread.

From all the postings that have been posted in order, (above) I find it fascinating that we can have two posters from the United kingdom, both posting one after the other but the perplexing thing I find really difficult to understand is the fact that the first several posts have a time stamp that is way after the later posters time stamps but they both are presented as being from the UK.

Have a look at the postings and you will see for yourself what I am observing.

Forgive me for making any mistakes here but I was under the understanding that the UK operated under just one time zone, so how can this have occurred?

At this point in time I am going to call foul and warn readers that we might be being subjected to some GLP effect and that maybe some of the information that is being posted here is NOT reliably valid input.

Please ensure that you follow links that are provided from UK posters, and that they are credible.

I would hate to think that we are being played here, but I do have reason to at least consider that possibility as plausable.

Especially in light of the experiences that I was recently subjected to when visiting the UK believing that and being given positive encouragement that I would be meeting one of our prominent posters here, but only to learn that I was being conned to a serious extent, leaving me with serious doubts as to the credibility of at least one notable presence on this thread.

At this point intime I believe that the "original" poster, previously known as Zennith, was more or less genuine and that she (he ?) continues to post here, I can tell this because of the poor manipulation of the English language and relatively alien manipulation of our native tongue.


It seems very likely that this person is actually from the Middle East/ Arabian territories as the knowledge that has be proffered appeard to be quite intimate with cultural practices from that region.

However, I also believe and have witnessed it on this thread that this entity works in concert with others, and those others are from different cultures and now apparently different places, there are very deep workings happening here I believe, but I will remain open minded and if comments are presented that are credible then I would love to hear of them as is my typical stance on fairness.

So, all I can say is for us all to be vigilant to the vagaries of what might appear on this valuable thread and if you feel that you sense some slight shift that doesent quite fit, then please post your thoughts.

It has always been the PURE intent and direction of this thread to inform with known and scientifically backed facts wherever possibloe and at the very least credible links to authoritive sources that should be considered to be credible and reliable.

These are the very reasons why the MSM have pelagerized our work here for several months now and also the same reason why I now refuse to bring the latest news here when not essential.

I really dont like being predated on and when the time does come for rapid dissemination of critical news will be when I post with that warning.

In the mean time the MSM can earn their pay by doing some actual work, I dont get paid for the many hours I dedicate to this work on behalf of decent humans, but by hell I hate having my work stolen for someone elses laziness and financial gain.

Big rave, appolagies.

arkay

Be cautious would be my sincere suggestion.

cheers

Hi UK anon.

Reading what I posted regarding the time stamps from your first three postings under the Anonymous Coward 41927464, and then comparing the next two posting under the Anonymous Coward 42051004 reveals that the last two posts were stamped with a time before the first three posts but the posts themselves appear as later posts.

This is what I found to be irregular.

Now there could be a number of reasons for that to happen, such as two seperated computers with incorrect times being set on their individual clocks, but that would suggest the use of more than one computer, if in fact that is how GLP picks up and displays those time stamps.

Using two computers would be a very unusual thing for any ordinary person to be doing.

The next possibility would involve the "second" UK anon, actually posing as being from the UK but actually being in a different time zone, again problematic.

So you can see why I spotted the irregularity and I am regrettably yet to be able to see any logic in your reply.

Any offence for the perception that I might have given the impression that you personally might have been damaging the integrity of this thread is indeed a very unfortunate perception that I regret that you have felt and I apolagise.


The thread I do know that you personally have highly valued and if in your position now, I would also have the feeling you express, so I unreservedly apolagise for that missunderstanding.

Having said that though, the irregularities do remain as do a litany of other very perplexing inconsistencies.

Having said that as you know your works on this thread specificially have been valued and I am yet to find just caust to doubt your personal input, but there is considerable space for doubt outside those specific confines and I will contimue to welcome YOUR input.

Apart from that there are numerous other matters that also deserve much attention and clarification between us but this is not the forum for that.

I am patiently waiting for that exchange as Im certain that you can anticipate and must also know that I deserve to be confided in.

Thanks Arkay. I'm watching this thread consistently. 11,000 American Muslims are supposedly attending the Hajj this go round. 11,000! If even 10%, 1,100 contract this it will spread around the country. NY, for example, could be devastated before Christmas. My G_d!

If I might ask, is this your professional field of research? Are you a doctor? CDC? WHO?

What amazing information you've managed to bring to this forum.

Know that I am practicing public cleanliness now in prep. for the troubles ahead after their return and distribution of the virus to the rest of us worldwide.

Inshallah; no impunity be upon the faithful pilgrims what-so-ever from my tongue.

I understand this is a very important time for their religious beliefs...but MAN do I wish they'd cancel it this year until this virus has winnowed its way into the history books. I feel like a highly contagious version of next generation Spanish Flu is about to make its world presence known and wipe out a third of the population.

Thank you T-Cain for jumping in and letting us hear that our works are being monitored, heeded and appreciated.

I hope that I dont dissalusion you but my past professional background goes as far as being a nurse with some considerable work in pathology which I found a personal affinity for.

Most of what I have done here anybody could do.

Yes, I have learnt immesurably over the last year or so since commencing this thread, but with an open mind and a passion for new learning and information anyone else could have easily duplicated what has been fielded here.

Perhaps having the time to dedicate to the tune of maybe an average of three hous a day to do research and follow links has helped but I stress that anyone could be more than capable of doing at least what has been delivered here probably much much more.

And I have innumerable other contributors that have added considerably to this thread.

All I have done really is tried to keep the focus appropriate and encourage everyone else to contribute and to engage in a respectful manner.

As far as your comments go re the emerging MERS-cov outbreak and its approaching potential for world wide pandemic there is some new news available that well, its corny but it is both good and bad.

I'll post that info after the MSM had had the time to do their fair share of work , its not going to make much difference in the bigger picture at this stage.

And apart from that I am still absorbing some other recent postings and deciding the appropriate response, before I offer a very carefully considered response.

In the mean time, you are doing all that you can for the present, knowledge is a very powerful tool and what you have described is the fact that we are getting our message through and really that is what our real function is.

Would really love to have more input and feedback about your "local" experiences and who and what people in your neck of the woods talk of and think if that is something that you have experience in, as is also the case for all other readers.

Time to respond.

There are two distinct parts to this situation.

So the first.

It is genuinely reassuring to hear that someone would go to all the trouble of using two computers at once to assist with their input here.

I too own several computers and it has never occurred to me that more than one has any benefit.

Indeed when Im on GLP I simply run multiple browsers on the same computer and achieve all the efficiency that I feel that I need.

Having said that though, I can think of a number or reasons that might be useful in employing the use of seperate computers, so I guess that Im satisfactiorily assured of the matter in that regard.

As to the other matter of my travels.

The commentary offered is so defensive that I will not even attempt to engage on it.

As I have previously asserted, this is NOT the place for that discussion and there are other far more appropriate and PRIVATE opportunities to engage on this topic, should that be of concern, and I am happy to PRIVATELY engage it that way.

Personally I dont care, the damage IS done, but as far as this thread and its integrity goes.

It stands above all else and any "personal" matters can be dealt with in far more appropriate ways.

This matter is now shut.

No further discussion will be engaged in via this thread.

International influenza reports have been released by the WHO.

Influenza virus activity in the world
-------------------------------------
[Source: Laboratory confirmed data from the Global Influenza Surveillance and Response System (GISRS).]

Based on FluNet reporting (as of 18 Jun 2013, 09:10 UTC), during weeks 22 to 23 (26 May to 8 Jun 2013), National Influenza Centres (NICs) and other national influenza laboratories from 66 countries, areas or territories reported data. The WHO GISRS laboratories tested more than 14 646 specimens. 906 were positive for influenza viruses, of which 615 (67.9 percent) were typed as influenza A and 291 (32.1 percent) as influenza B. Of the sub-typed influenza A viruses, 354 (74.4 percent) were influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 and 122 (25.6 percent) were influenza A(H3N2). Of the characterized B viruses, 10 (71.4 percent) belong to the B-Yamagata lineage and 4 (28.6 percent) to the B-Victoria lineage.

Summary
-------
During weeks 22 and 23 [26 May to 8 Jun 2013], influenza activity remained low globally. Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses continued to be the predominant circulating subtype, followed by influenza B and A(H3N2) viruses.

In Asia and Oceania, influenza A(H3N2) and influenza B viruses co-circulated throughout the region at low levels in general, although Viet Nam reported increased A(H1N1)pdm09 virus activity.

In Africa, A(H1N1)pdm09 activity remained high in Madagascar and South Africa. Sporadic influenza detections were reported from elsewhere in the region.

In Central and South America, A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses continued to circulate although at low levels.

In Europe and North America sporadic detections of influenza B viruses continued to be reported

Re: <<Advancing Bird Flu-H5N1...Now following MERS and Ebola approaching PANDEMICS>>>
Some commentary here on the state of H5N1 avian influenza in Egypt, here.

H5N1 prevalence may surpass 10 percent in Egyptian backyard, market poultry
-------------------------------------------------------------​---------
An Egyptian surveillance study found that while H5N1 avian flu viruses were uncommon on commercial poultry farms, more than 10 percent of backyard and live-market birds harbored the virus, according to a report in the Journal of Virology [see comment]. Throughout 2009 Egyptian and German scientists took tracheal and cloacal swabs from 22 024 farm poultry, of which 23 birds (0.1 percent) were positive by polymerase chain reaction for the H5N1 virus. In comparison, 151 (10.5 percent) of 1435 birds in backyard flocks and 108 (11.4 percent) of 944 birds in live-bird markets were infected. Incidence was highest in spring and summer, particularly in backyard birds. The team also sampled 1297 wild birds of 28 different species in 2009 and 2010 and detected no H5N1. They conclude that backyard flocks may play a key role in maintaining H5N1 in Egyptian poultry, especially in live-bird markets.

More fatal cases of MERS-cov are being reported for the Middle East.

Interrestingly we now appear to be gaining, rather belatedly, a better understanding of this coronavirus, with more asymptomatic cases being detected now than presiously.

Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) - update 26 Jun 2013
-------------------------------------------------------------​---------------
The Ministry of Health (MOH) in Saudi Arabia has announced 7 additional laboratory-confirmed cases and a death in a previously confirmed case of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).

A total of 4 cases have been detected among contacts of confirmed cases in Riyadh and the Eastern Region. They range in age from 7 to 15 years, and all were asymptomatic. Also, 2 further asymptomatic cases have been recorded among female healthcare workers in the Eastern Region and Al-Ahsa. A 7th case has been detected in a 50-year-old female in the Eastern Region. She is currently hospitalized with pulmonary disease and her condition is considered stable.

In addition, the MoH has announced the death of a previously reported confirmed case from the Eastern Region (the 32-year-old male 1st reported on [23 Jun 2013]).

Globally, from September 2012 to date, WHO has been informed of a total of 77 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection with MERS-CoV, including 40 deaths.

I previously engaged in several threads regarding the potentially devestating potential of H5N1.

Some readers who havent even attempted to gain any sort of education have downvoted my thread to the point that no-one got the chance to read and learn, on a topic that I have been closely monitoring for several years, ever since the World Health Organization announced their concerns for it to go pandemic.

Now the following link is showing its steady but relentless advance and in all probability its eventual final evolutionary mutation to become an airborne dissease that will readily spread throughout humanity with devistating effects.
