A man from Qatar has died in a British hospital from the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (Mers-CoV).


The 49-year-old man was admitted to St Thomas' Hospital in London and was treated in intensive care. He died after his condition deteriorated.

This is the 43rd patient to die from Mers-CoV globally. Countries where the disease has also been found include Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, France, Germany, Italy and Tunisia.

Dr Jon Bible, a virus expert at Guy's and St Thomas', told the Daily Telegraph that they are unsure of what killed the latest victim: "In the end his lungs were worn down, so secondary infection is the real problem. The virus effectively turns your lungs to jelly," he said.

London man dies of MERS-CoV virus: fourth death reported in two days

Posted on July 4, 2013by The Extinction Protocol


July 4, 2013 – LONDON - A man infected with a SARS-like respiratory illness has died in London, officials said. The Qatari man, who was being treated in an intensive care unit at St Thomas’s hospital in central London, had contracted the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus – or MERS-CoV. Hospital officials said that the man, who was 49 when he was admitted, died after his condition deteriorated. The patient, who was suffering from acute respiratory syndrome and renal failure, was admitted to an intensive care unit in Doha, Qatar, on 7 September last year. The man, who has not been named by officials, was transferred to the UK by air ambulance on 11 September. Before he became ill he had travelled to Saudi Arabia, officials said. Despite doctors’ efforts to keep him alive, including connecting him to an artificial lung, he died on Friday last week. A hospital spokeswoman said: “Guy’s and St Thomas’s can confirm that the patient with severe respiratory illness due to novel coronavirus … sadly died on Friday 28 June, after his condition deteriorated despite every effort and full supportive treatment.” In May, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that MERS-CoV – is a “threat to the entire world” and experts have raised concerns that the disease is “emerging faster than our understanding.” Latest figures from the WHO, published before the latest UK death, show that since September last year there have been 77 laboratory confirmed cases across nine countries, which have resulted in 40 deaths. British health officials have been advised to be vigilant for severe unexplained respiratory illness in anyone who has recently travelled in the Middle East, as well as any unexplained clusters of such illness. Coronaviruses cause most common colds but can also cause SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). In 2003, hundreds of people died after a SARS outbreak in Asia. –Guardian [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

United Arab Emirates reports its first MERS case

Posted on July 13, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

July 13, 2013 – UAE - An 82-year-old man from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been hospitalized in Abu Dhabi with a Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection, the first patient to be diagnosed and treated within the UAE, according to reports from local media. The UAE’s state news agency Wam said the man was being treated for multiple myeloma when he was diagnosed, The National, an English-language newspaper based in Abu Dhabi. reported today. The latest illness raises the global total to 82 cases, of which 45 have been fatal. Though most MERS-CoV cases have been reported from Saudi Arabia, one patient was an Emirati man who died in Germany in late March after he was diagnosed and treated there. That patient was a 73-year-old man who had an underlying illness. A 65-year-old Frenchman who had traveled to the UAE died in May after his return to France. In other developments, Saudi Arabia’s health ministry today updated its health advice for people making Umrah and Hajj pilgrimages, according to report in Arabic flagged by FluTrackers, an international infectious disease message board. The health ministry urged older people and those with underlying medical conditions such as heart or kidney disease to postpone their visits this year as a precaution in response to the emergence of MERS-CoV. The ministry also urged pregnant women and children to postpone making the pilgrimages. Earlier this year the country asked domestic and foreign Muslim pilgrims to postpone their Hajj and Umrah visits this year due to construction at Mecca’s Grand Mosque. The move sparked speculation that MERS-CoV may have played a role in the government’s request. –CIDRAP [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

They want you all vaccinated, they will say that there are people carriers that show no symptoms therefore you all need a vaccination. They will introduce a bill to make it compulsory. I still believe that they are going to expose the population (or already have)to low level chemical agent like mustard gas to mimic this or any flu like sars disease, how would you know the difference? The New York subway gassing could be a trial run, in the future you would not know if they sprayed mustard gas or not as in it's pure form it is colourless and odourless. , it would be next day that you had symptoms.Suddenly New York has an outbreak of a bizarre flu. That is my conspiracy theory

Six new MERS coronavirus cases reported in UAE, Saudi Arabia

Posted on July 19, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
July 19, 2013 – HEALTH – Health authorities in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have reported six new cases of the SARS-like coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday. The latest infections of four women and two men aged between 26 and 42 bring the global total to 88 cases, including 45 deaths, the United Nations agency said in a statement. Five of the six new cases were health workers and the other was a man who came in close contact with someone who had been infected with the disease, which is known as Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, or MERS, WHO said. Millions are expected to travel to Mecca in Saudi Arabia in October for the haj pilgrimage. Saudi authorities have cut the number of visas this year, citing safety concerns over expansion work at the main mosque site. The WHO is drawing up advice on travel in relation to coronavirus, to be issued in coming days. It urged health care providers to be vigilant for severe acute respiratory infections and test any recent travelers from the Middle East suffering from such infections for MERS. The global health body has set up an emergency committee of independent experts on MERS, who said on Wednesday it was not a “public health emergency of international concern” for the time being. The committee can make recommendations on travel and trade restrictions, increased disease surveillance and exchange of data. Two of the new coronavirus cases in Abu Dhabi and both cases in Saudi Arabia displayed mild symptoms. The other two in Abu Dhabi had no symptoms of the disease. Cases have also been found in Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Tunisia, Britain, France, Italy and Germany. –Reuters [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

MERS: silence in the gulf

[link to crofsblogs.typepad.com]

Click through to HAAD News, the English website of the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi, and you'll see the most recent news item is dated June 17. Yet The National, a newspaper in the United Arab Emirates, published a report on July 19 about four local doctors who'd contracted MERS. WHO reported the same cases on July 18.
Meanwhile, the Saudi Ministry of Health reports only when it has new cases, when it also slips in any "passed away" cases. Other Gulf states' media are also silent in the face of the new threat.

Saudi man dies in kingdom from MERS coronavirus: Health Ministry

Posted on July 29, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol


July 29, 2013 – SAUDI ARABIA – A Saudi man has died of the coronavirus Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), the Saudi Health Ministry said on Saturday, raising to 39 the number of deaths from the SARS-like virus in the kingdom where it first emerged last year. “The Ministry of Health has announced the death of one case, who had been previously announced to be infected with this virus in Asir, may Allah have mercy upon him,” the ministry said in a statement. An 83-year-old man from the same southern province was also confirmed to have contracted the virus, bringing the total number of confirmed cases inside the kingdom to 66, the ministry said. The World Health Organization said earlier this month that MERS, which can cause fever, coughing and pneumonia, had not yet reached pandemic potential and may simply die out. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims come to Saudi Arabia during Ramadan for umrah, a pilgrimage that can be carried out at any time of year. Millions are also expected to travel to Mecca for the main haj pilgrimage which falls in October this year, but the authorities have cut the number of visas this year, citing safety concerns over expansion work at the main mosque site. WHO experts said last month that countries at risk from MERS should put in place plans for handling mass gatherings but has stopped short of recommending restrictions on travel. –Reuters [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Saudi Arabia confirms more MERS cases

Posted on August 1, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
August 1, 2013 – JEDDAH, SA – Three more confirmed cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus infections in Saudi Arabia have been recorded, the Ministry of Health said on Thursday. A statement posted on the ministry’s website said one of the patients is a 67-year-old woman in Riyadh, who had been suffering from various chronic diseases. She is now under intensive care, receiving the health care and proper treatment. The two other cases are both women health workers, one of them living in Asir region and the other in Riyadh. “They have mild symptoms but their health status is stable,” said the MOH. The new cases bring to 92 the total number of people who have contracted the virus worldwide, including 71 in Saudi Arabia. f the 92 cases registered with the World Health Organization since last year, 46 have died, including 39 in Saudi Arabia. The latest MERS death in the Kingdom, announced by the Ministry of Health on July 25, was an 83-year-old man in Asir. Saudi and UK scientists studying MERS said the coronavirus is more deadly, unpredictable and has significant differences from severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus that erupted in Asia in 2003 and infected 8,273 people, nine percent of whom died. Ziad Memish, Saudi deputy minister for public health, earlier said: “MERS coronavirus appears to be more deadly, with 60 percent of patients with co-existing chronic illnesses dying, compared with the one-percent toll of SARS.”

He said that the MERS infecting humans is unpredictable because the source of the virus is not yet known. While sharing clinical similarities with the SARS-like fever, cough and incubation period, he said there are also some important differences such as the rapid progression to respiratory failure of up to five days. The progression occurs earlier than in SARS. In a Lancet Infectious Diseases publication, Saudi and UK scientists also noted a trend of older patients with more men and patients with underlying medical conditions succumbing to the disease. The symptoms of patients suffering from MERS coronavirus are fever (98 percent), chills (87 percent), cough (83 percent), shortness of breath (72 percent), and muscle pain (32 percent). A quarter of patients also experience gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhea and vomiting. However, in SARS, the majority of cases (96 percent) occurred in people with underlying chronic medical conditions including diabetes (68 percent), high blood pressure (34 percent), chronic heart disease (28 percent), and chronic renal disease (49 percent). –Albawaba [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Hong Kong: Measures needed to contain H7N9 threat

[link to crofsblogs.typepad.com]


Cases of H7N9 bird flu in the mainland could spike this winter if measures are not taken to contain the virus, experts warn. 
The warning comes as Secretary for Food and Health Ko Wing-man said it is possible for infected people to arrive from the mainland without any symptoms. 
"It is impossible to prevent those people who are infected with the H7N9 flu, but not showing symptoms, from entering Hong Kong," Ko said yesterday.

[H7N9 TRIAGE PANIC] CDC Contracting With Poison Control Centers and 2-1-1 to Create Public 'Phone-In' Bird Flu Triage Centers

To avert panic during the expected H7N9 Influenza outbreak the CDC is creating a national severe pandemic flu triage center which will allow people to dial 2-1-1 and speak to a Poison Control Center Nurse who has been trained to triage pandemic bird flu cases.

See Federal Solicitations:
Number: 2013-N-15473
Number: 2013-N-15472

Despite our own belief that there is a low risk of a wide spread high fatality Bird Flu pandemic this year, the massive preparations the Federal Government is undertaking for just such an occurrence can only be foolishly ignored.

Disease watch: New Chinese bird flu may be worse than H7N9 virus

Posted on August 24, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
August 24, 2013 – CHINA - A virus called H7N7 has been discovered in chickens in China, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. A team of Hong Kong researchers found the virus in about 25 percent of the fowl sampled, many of which also had the H7N9 virus. By testing the H7N7 virus on ferrets, the researchers found that it can be transmitted to mammals. “If (we) let this H7N7 continue circulating in chickens, I am sure that human infection cases will occur,” study co-author Guan Yi at the University of Hong Kong told AFP. “This virus could cause more severe infection than … H7N9, based on our animal experiments.” H7N7 appears to have developed alongside H7N9, which has killed 44 of more than 130 people infected in China. “We think it is scary for humans,” Guan added. “Our entire human population almost has no antibodies against the H7 subtype of influenza virus. Thus, if it causes pandemic outbreak, it will kill many people.” The scientists believe a better surveillance system is needed to monitor for dangerous viruses like H7N9 that may be emerging. “This is a very different influenza ecosystem from other countries,” Guan said, according to Nature. –The Epoch Times [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]
