This is very dumb!



Cadavra crowd surfing! still considered okay by the WHO

Its about time the WHO-tards started telling the African nations that this practice is not healthy.

Someones cultural/religious needs can't over ride the world safety.

Funeral-insanity was also a major cause of spread of the Ebola-virus during the outbreak in West Africa. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_African_Ebola_virus_epidemic.

Human behavior is a major contributing factor to pandemics. In the "third"world (a western term to distance ourselves from the poverty rich countries create) most people only have their feet as means of transport-no cars, no roads, so a virus human-to-human only spreads as far humans can walk. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halabja_chemical_attack#International_sources_for_technology_and_chemical_precursors During the Iraq-Iran wars-after the "Islamic"revolution in 1979 in Iran-the west supported Saddam Hussein a.o. with chemical weapons. Also in the war for Syria the US supplied "rebels" with Sarin-gas and then blamed the Assad government. 

http://www.clubconspiracy.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10515, https://www.henrymakow.com/001836.html, https://healthwyze.org/reports/239-proof-that-the-swine-flu-epidemic-was-man-made-and-intentional The 1918 "Spanish Flu" may have been a bio-weapon. (With possible the US, Germany, France, the UK all working on such a weapon). 

Also Ebola, Marburg, Plague can be used-en tested-as bioweapons. Loking at history I do not doubt several countries are willing to test such bioweapons in Africa. Especially an island lik Madagascar could be used as a testing ground.

No point in telling them if they will not listen.

Every time there is a rumor about a vaccination program the parents take their kids out of school to avoid it.  

You could teach the kids at school about the value of vaccination and then vaccinate the next generation.  But that would be a solution in 30-50 years, when the previous generation dies off; not so useful for such an acute outbreak, but it could be used to sort out the chronic/endemic plague problem.

Sadly, sometimes ideas fail to change in a whole society until the holders of superstitious beliefs die and so allow the correct information to flourish in the children, or even grandchildren.  Sad but true, we are a pretty dumb species most of the time.

Despite our lack of intelect, despite the contrary claims of the tabloid press, it really is calming down.

Good news: Madagascar hasn’t seen a new plague case in 3 weeks

Does an individual build even a smidgeon of immunity after contracting plague?

Hopefully after surviving a first infection.

I'm thinking, no.

Team, any input or feedback will be helpful.

Thank-you.

I have been interested in the gene CCR5 - Delta 32 for some time. This gene is a mutation and holding one copy of it can confer a predisposition to recovery from the bubonic plague, and carrying two copies of this gene can indicate immunity from it. Interestingly, the presence of this gene can also indicate resistance from HIV and small pox. 

A lot of research has been done on this gene, and in particular two results caught my attention. One was done on the descendants of the inhabitants of the village of Eyam in England, a place that quarantined itself during the plague outbreak in the 17th century. What researchers found out was that descendants of people who had caught the plague but recovered, carried one copy of the Delta 32 gene, and descendants of people who hadn't caught the plague at all despite being surrounded by it, carried two copies of the gene. 

Secondly, some research was done on prostitutes in Africa, who despite servicing hundreds of men, many of whom were HIV positive, still hadn't contracted HIV. These women were found to carry 2 copies of the gene. 

I fully intend to get tested for the gene myself one day when I have some spare money floating around. My ancestors are all Welsh and Irish, so were true Celts and I have many antecedents who lived into their 90's so I'm hoping we might carry this gene. How exciting would that be?
If it is to be, it is up to me.

I have no idea if this gene helps with pneumonic plague.
