The world “has not understood the risk to the global economy”, has said the president of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim. By saying the world “has not understood”, he means that the puppets the Elite micromanages have not used Ebola to provide enough reasons for their masters to get complete control over world nations. Mr. Kim believes that the world is “losing the battle against Ebola” because the world “has not understood the risk that the disease represents to the global economy” In a joint press conference with French President François Hollande and other international organizations responsible, Jim said, because the world has reacted so late to the virus, it “is now going to need a good push.” Jim criticized countries that are thinking more about their national borders to stem the virus that has flourished and stressed that: “We will not understand that global coordination is necessary until it is too late.” “We still don’t have the necessary solidarity” to control Ebola remarked Jim, who said that “if other countries do not intervene with staff to stop it, new cases will appearing.” Jim then invited everyone to join the initiative of the United States, United Kingdom and France. For him, the Ebola crisis “had the particularity that the signs were there, but the system has been unable to analyze and react.” The World Bank issued a report with the catastrophic economic effects that the outbreak could result in in West Africa if it expands from the three most affected countries: Sierra Leone, Guinea Conakry and Liberia, to others in the region, which could amount to total losses of 32 billion for 2015. Jim’s statement is one that is expected from the typical globalist. It is the Problem, Reaction, Solution strategy, where bureaucrats blame each other and justify their inaction with words like “incompetence” to promote more centralized control of everything. First of all, there is plenty of proof that countries like the United States, that are allegedly fighting Ebola with soldiers and weapons, have experimented with the virus in their biowarfare facilities in Africa. Second of all, there isn’t the slightest clue about Ebola becoming a global pandemic, as many alternative and traditional media have tried to make it look like. As we informed yesterday, in the United States, people who were under suspicion of being infected with Ebola have been cleared. In Spain, the only registered case of Ebola, a woman who came in contact with an Ebola patient is now recovering successfully, and no other western nation has registered more than one or two cases which are yet to be confirmed as Ebola victims. Today we learn that Nigeria, one of the countries at the most risk of developing a large number of Ebola cases has been declared free of the disease. According to the World Health Organization, the most populous country around the hot zone has overcome the so-called epidemic after remaining free of suspected Ebola infections for the last 42 days. In Nigeria, the outcome should lead to a state of cautious positivism, but not complacency. The country is now set as an example for other African countries as much as for the rich countries to which the disease has also arrived. The Nigerian authorities, with the help of NGOs, started working in the control of Ebola right after the first case appeared last July. According to the WHO, Nigeria’s success stems from the fact that the country’s leadership managed to effectively coordinate its response through the establishment of an Emergency Operations Center, which has received the support of the Group for Disease Control and Prevention. Lagos University Hospital collaborated with a virology laboratory to diagnose and study cases. The media also played a key role in prevention. Different from what happens in the US, and most of the western world, the Nigerian government made correct use of media outlets. Nigeria also launched a door-to-door campaign to raise awareness about the direct danger. Another reason why the World Bank’s dire warning is disproportionate is the case of Cuba, whose work against Ebola has been recognized even by the United States government and the New York Times. The country has been placed at the forefront of the international campaign to combat Ebola in Africa and to prevent its spread. President Raul Castro on Monday confirmed its intention to send two new contingents of Cuban doctors to Liberia and Guinea, during the Extraordinary Summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of America (ALBA) in Havana, which convened on an emergency basis to coordinate efforts the fight the disease. Castro said in his speech that the group will add to the 461 specialists and nurses who were trained last week in Cuba to meet the emergency, and who arrived in West Africa earlier this month. Perhaps the US and the World Bank would want to learn how a small island country ran as a dictatorship, can have real solutions to a health crisis while most western nations are in the hands of multinational pharmaceutical companies.
“Last October first, a specialized medical brigade from Cuba traveled to Sierra Leone to participate in confronting this epidemic and tomorrow Tuesday, October 21 another one will leave for Liberia and Guinea.” said Castro. According to statistics of the island, over 4,000 Cuban health personnel are currently working in 32 African countries and are willing to join “the preventive effort against Ebola.”
Castro called for an international effort coordinated by the United Nations and the World Health Organization. He also stressed his willingness to “work closely” with all countries, “including the United States.” The first group of Cubans who left a couple of weeks ago to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea was trained in Havana by experts from Brazil, USA and the NGO Doctors Without Borders in camps that simulated Africa. Meanwhile, the European Union on Monday failed to translate into action the concern it says it feels about the impact of Ebola. The foreign ministers agreed to increase the economic contribution to the three most affected countries, which now amounts to 600 million euros. But that money has done little by itself, because it does not translate into real action on the ground to prevent the Ebola spread. While Cuban personnel have been in Africa for two weeks, European ministers avoided compromising sending health workers. Beyond missions to assess the situation, the EU has not sent teams of health experts to address the epidemic. The German foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, proposed a mission of European white helmets to help the sick, but neither Germany nor any other European country materialized any contribution. While Cuba and some international organizations are at the forefront of the fight against Ebola, western nations have done everything their dumbminded leaders can: name inexperienced people as Ebola Czars.
