Madagascar Outbreak: It Is ‘Inevitable’ The Plague Becomes Resistant To Drugs

I've been following this for about a month now and it's NOT getting any better, just worse, so now that TPTB are growing more concerned perhaps we should also.

Thoughts gentlemen ?

Madagascar Outbreak: It Is ‘Inevitable’ The Plague Becomes Resistant To Drugs

The newest warning about the outbreak of the airborne pneumonic plague, or black death, in Madagascar has been released. Officials warn that it’s inevitable that this bacterial infection that’s infected over 2000 people will become resistant to antibiotics.

The only way to treat a person who has contracted the plague is with antibiotics. But experts now warn that because they are being used so much to treat the infection, antibiotics resistance is inevitable and making this disease much more terrifying. Once the bacteria is resistant, the Madagascar healthcare system will be overwhelmed, and the disease will have control of the nation.

According to the Daily Mail, Madagascar’s healthcare system will be unable to cope if the deadly plague outbreak continues to escalate, a scientist has warned. Scores of doctors and nurses have been struck down with the disease, which is predicted to gather momentum in the coming weeks and there are growing fears hospitals will be unable to meet the illness’ burden. Official figures reveal at least 2,034 people have been infected with the “medieval disease” so far in what has been described as the “worst outbreak in 50 years.” The black death outbreak has so far claimed at least 165 lives.

Although the plague is responding well to antibiotics right now, drug resistance is also an increasing concern amongst experts who predict it will vastly accelerate the disease’s death toll. Professor John Joe McFadden from the University of Surrey told MailOnline: “Fortunately in [the] plague, it has not developed much antibiotic resistance. If that kicks in, the plague will be far, far scarier. If you throw more and more antibiotics at patients, antibiotic resistance is more or less inevitable.”

Dr. Derek Gatherer, from Lancaster University’s biomedical and life-sciences department, told MailOnline the country would struggle “to cope” if cases continue to spiral. “Madagascar, typically like many African countries, doesn’t have many doctors. There are around three-and-a-half thousand doctors for 22 million people. They only have around 6,000 hospital beds, so they aren’t particularly well positioned to cope with these kind of events. And if it wasn’t for the international aid coming in things would definitely be much worse for them.”

And experts continue to fear the healthcare system is on the brink of being overwhelmed. Should the disease actually spread to the African mainland, it will be all but impossible to control and the health care system would certainly be unable to handle the outbreak at that point, making a global pandemic much more likely.

Comments

  • If it truly becomes drug resistant then we could be in for a small population decrease until quarantine zone are set up.
  • Pastor Joe, discussing The Plague

  • I think we need to send in our politicians right away. The could solve this right away.
  • Politician's, yah they'll just make a law telling the plague that it is illegal for it to be in our country and it won't come here. LOL.
  • Have any of you guys thought about how you would handle things if this was happening here yet ?

    INFECTED FUGITIVES Black Death patients are ESCAPING hospital and refusing treatment sparking fears it may spread

    Chief of medicine at plague hospital in Madagascar says patients are scared of needles and not used to hospital treatment.
    HOSPITAL patients suffering from the plague are running away from hospitals because they are scared of needles and aren't used to hospital treatment.

    Security guards at the Central Anti-Plague Hospital in Ambohimindra, Madagascar, are tasked with keeping patients in as well as making sure those arriving follow safety procedures.

    Officials at the hospital say the main reason why patients run away is that they are scared of needles and don't have much experience of hospitals.

    Jean Benoit Manhes, the deputy representative of Unicef, told the Irish Times: "Some escaped because they’re afraid of needles. People here are not used to the hospital.

    Malagasy people have also been told not to carry out their traditional burial tradition of Famidihana which involves digging up their dead relatives every seven years.

    It means 'turning the bones' and sees families cleaning the remains, rewrapping them and reburying them while other family members perform a special dance.

    The African island's government has told citizens to pause the tradition for fear the plague bacteria is still active in the corpses and can be spread to the living.

    Plague victims who are successfully treated also face stigma when they return home to their communities.

    Dr Marielle Zaramisy, the hospital’s chief of medicine, said: "Some people are ashamed once they get out of here.

    "They don’t know can they go out at night, they don’t want to tell their boss because he won’t hug them anymore."

    That is the plan.

    Yes I have planned for such an event. I stocked up on Colloidal Silver. The is what was used to wipe out the Ebola virus in Africa a couple of years ago. The medical industry uses the term "nano silver", it kills every known pathogen. The reason for the news blackout on the subject was to suppress the natural cure for all infectious diseases.

    Make your own Colloidal Silver. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-COLLOIDAL-SILVER-Easy/ http://silverpuppy.com/

    We along with three other families have our own Colloidal Silver Generators......... great minds and all that Barrett, hahahhahahahhaahhaaaa
  • I Have "Sovereign Silver" B)
  • I agree w scottrob76 and mmr1:

    Let's send the Pols there to show how seriously we are taking it. Hopefully they will become infected and quarantined away from DC.

    Yeah, just pass a Law and the Forces of Nature alter to suit Man's Will. Lol. :/
