Russian Scientists Alarmed As African Epidemic Spreads, Death Toll Nears 3,000 As New Cases Approach 50,000

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

Russian Scientists are becoming increasingly alarmed as one of the worst cholera epidemics in World history has begun sweeping the Continent of Africa resulting in nearly 3,000 deaths, and as we can see evidenced by these reports:

As reported by the United Nations News Centre in their report titled "With toll mounting in Angolan cholera outbreak, UN sends in more health kits", and which says, "With the toll in Angola’s worst cholera outbreak in almost two decades approaching 50,000 cases and 2,000 deaths, the United Nations health agency is sending drugs, oral rehydration salts, disinfectants and chlorine to counter poor sanitation and a shortage of safe drinking water, major vectors of the disease."

It's sad but you're right...very few of the Yanks care, and I think it's because they are inherent racists at heart and have no idea that they're manipulated by their government into being like that.

'Superbugs' Could 'Dwarf' AIDS, Flu: May Be 'Biggest Infectious Disease Problem' In Coming Years

(CBS) Public health officials are becoming increasingly alarmed by the growing number of illnesses caused by antibiotic-resistant staph bacteria.

The bacteria are hard to treat and can be very aggressive. They can also be deadly.

On The Early Show Thursday, Dr. Stephen Baum of Beth Israel Medical Center in New York told co-anchor Hannah Storm, "We have staph organisms on our skin and in our noses all the time. Generally, we live in peace with them, and they don't do us any particular harm. Occasionally, if there's a break in the skin or if somebody has an underlying skin condition like eczema, staph will gain access to inside the skin and under the skin and cause infections."

Baum said such bacteria are no longer being confined to hospitals.

"(They are) making their way into the general population. Hospitals tend to be incubators for what's in the community and concentrate the infection in one place. But this is now becoming an increasing problem within the community.

"I think drug resistance to bacteria and viruses is going to be perhaps the biggest infectious disease problem in the coming decades, dwarfing AIDS and possibly even dwarfing a terrible outbreak of influenza, because this will be a daily occurrence as we go into the next couple of decades.

"Whether it's epidemics or individual cases, it's going to become a much more common event."

A big factor behind the problem, Baum said, is the overuse of antibiotics, so, "I think patients have to stop asking their physicians for antibiotics if they don't need them and physicians have to stop prescribing them if they don't think the patients need them."

Baum also warned that, "There are not nearly enough new antibiotics being developed. There are very few antibiotics in the pharmacological pipeline, so the bacteria are definitely becoming resistant faster than we're able to provide new antibiotics."

The united states spends 10 times more than any other country in humanitarian aid annually to poor third world countries. Whether its news or not has no bearing on the level of help provided. Newspapers do not reflect the generosity of the american people. Newspapers include stories that sell papers to the audience it targets. Plain and simple.

Who cares what the US thinks anyway? And the money they 'give'? It's almost all military aid money....not for food or medicine.

In fact the US has used Africa for a dumping ground for medicines that are out of date.

The ongoing plight of Africans just depresses me. I read a story like this and think, well, it'll just save them the trouble of starving to death.

Stories like this and the inactions of TPTB just go to prove that none of them gives a shit about Africa. Here in the UK our newspapers are dominated by the spending habits of footballer's wives .. jeez all I have to say is that Karma will prevail.

They pledge that, they don't pay it. Just want to "appear" to look good.
