Mystery: infected epidemiologist had no contact with patients, as 3rd doctor dies from Ebola in Sierra Leone

Originally posted on The Extinction Protocol :

August 2014AFRICA – A third top doctor has died from Ebola in Sierra Leone, a government official said Wednesday, as health workers tried to determine how a fourth scientist also contracted the disease before being evacuated to Europe. The announcements raised worries about Sierra Leone’s fight against Ebola, which already has killed more than 1,400 people across West Africa. The World Health Organization said it was sending a team to investigate how the epidemiologist now undergoing treatment in Germany may have contracted the disease that kills more than half its victims. “The international surge of health workers is extremely important and if something happens, if health workers get infected and it scares off other international health workers from coming, we will be in dire straits,” said Christy Feig, director of WHO communications. Dr. Sahr Rogers had been working at a hospital in the eastern town of…

Olathe Fire Departments helps 100 area football players take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

OLATHE, Kan. — You’ve seen the countless videos of people pouring buckets of ice water on their heads. But, are people donating? The ALS Association says yes!

The organization said Saturday that it had raised $62.5 million dollars compared to just $2.4 million dollars during the same time period last year. That’s 26 times the amount of money. And, the organization credits the boost to the continued popularity of the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Saturday morning the Olathe Northwest High School Football Team accepted a challenge made by a player’s aunt on television for the entire team to get soaked at once. The challenge comes from a meteorologist at FOX 4’s sister station in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to her nephew, senior football player Manny Psihountas.

With the help of the Olathe Fire Department more than 100 players on the team got drenched by a fire hose.

“Oh it was awesome especially after…

Something is different this time.  This is the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history, and this particular strain appears to be spreading much more easily than others have.  So far, 1,323 people have been infected in the nations of Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.  Of those 1,323 victims, a whopping 729 of them have died.  But a number that is even more alarming was buried in the middle of a Reuters report on Friday.  According to Reuters, “more than 100 health workers” that have been fighting Ebola in Africa have contracted the virus themselves.  Considering the extraordinary measures that these health workers take to keep from getting the disease, that is quite chilling.  We are not just talking about one or two “accidents”.  We are talking about more than 100 of them getting sick.  If Ebola is spreading…

July 2014RUSSIA– Two more mysterious holes have opened up in Siberia after the original crater appeared in the Yamal Peninsula earlier this month. “Yamal” is a name that literally translates to “end of the land.” Both new craters were discovered by reindeer herders, who thankfully didn’t fall the estimated 300 feet to the bottom. In case the thought of bottomless black holes isn’t already conjuring up images of an apocalyptic doomsday, then here are some videos and pictures to ensure you don’t sleep at all tonight. What are they, and why are portions of Siberia now beginning to collapse in huge holes?
Scientists are still unsure as to what exactly is causing their appearance. Theories range from meteorites to stray missiles, a man-made prank or even aliens. However, The Siberian Times reports that the most common belief is that they’re the result of “melting permafrost due to…
