Editor’s Commentary: Because of the original “Plandemic” of Covid-19, I have been extremely skeptical of new diseases being fearmongered as “the next big one.” We are skittish as a society when it comes to diseases thanks to over two years of Pandemic Panic Theater. The last thing I want to do is promote more fear when it’s unwarranted.
Marburg Virus Disease is at the top of the list of actual threats. The bad news for those who get hemorrhagic fever is good news for the rest of us; it kills the vast majority of those who contract it and they die quickly, meaning it’s very difficult to spread on a wide scale. But there’s a challenge with Marburg that makes it worrisome. It incubation period is up to three weeks, which means someone can be infecting a whole lot of people before they even experience a symptom.
Moreover, this story caught my attention because two people I trust and respect, Dr. Li-Meng Yan and Lt. General Thomas McInerney, have both been on my show this year to warn the Chinese Communist Party has worked on hemorrhagic fever as a bioweapon in Africa, which happens to be where the latest outbreak is centered. So while I do NOT want to spread fear if it’s unwarranted, I’m posting the article below by Michael Snyder because if there’s even a slight chance this could spread, we have to pay close attention to it. Unlike Covid-19, Marburg Virus Disease is a real threat to humanity.
That’s the preface to a chilling news article about an apparent outbreak of Marburg in Ghana. As it happens, I read a truly horrifying but really good book a while back called The Hot Zone, which provided quite an education on hemorrhagic-fever type diseases such as Ebola and, of course, Marburg. If you’re unfamiliar with it, just take my word for it that if that stuff ever does get loose on a planetary scale, humanity is well and truly fucked.
