A few days ago, BN brought you the news that a Spanish priest , 75-year-old Miguel Pajares,  tested positive for the Ebola virus in Liberia.

And now, a Congolese nun who worked with the priest and other Spanish Catholic missionaries in Liberia has died of Ebola, Vanguard reports. 

The nun, Chantal Pascaline, passed away this morning at Saint Joseph Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia.

    I am beginning to believe that this strain of Ebola is an air borne virus, because I’m well sure that the care givers are taking adequate measures to protect/disinfect themselves and avoid bodily contact with the patients.
    This is so sad. I’ve been praying for God to intervene as it is rapidly spreading.

      they are not well covered. If you look at some of the pictures, you can see where a part of the body is exposed. gloves are not enough. also remember, the caregivers know to cover up for ebola only if they know the person has ebola otherwise they do their routine cover up with gloves and that’s not sufficient for ebola

    I was wondering same. Does it mean that all these people dead actually came into body contact. If its by body fluid then why are the people who most likely were on gloves and covered body infected?

    I spent most of this afternoon researching. Some scientists believe that this particular strain of Ebola virus is manifesting slightly differently from past Ebola outbreaks and they have reason to believe this strain is airborne. Please research for your self, please! I am not saying it is, but the research does not appear conclusive that it isn’t airborne! KINDLY READ THIS ENTIRE PEICE & do your own research..

    Google it and watch some YouTube videos. I saw videos and presentations done in the 1990s and early 2000s looking at laboratory researches into finding a vaccine for polio.

    The result of the research was that polio vaccine with live polio virus (Sabin-the name of that oral polio vaccine) injected into millions of Americans only to be discontinued about 1963. This vaccine gave polio rather than prevent it! There is a safer polio vaccine now! Please read on.

    This vaccine though was cultivated on monkey kidney and unfortunately according to some scientists, 39 other viruses that lived in monkeys were also unknowingly inside of the culture for the now discontinued polio vaccine, these viruses can be dormant until something triggers them…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJzcDwZD16Q

    This discontinued vaccine in the US was still being used in East Africa until sensitization by a Ugandan American journalist running sensitization programmes in East Africa. The republic of Congo is in East Africa- I believe that was where the first Ebola outbreak happened. Please read on & see this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyVPTgfe2QA

    The aim of these videos & post is not to suggest EBV came from these vaccines else the Americans would have it, but just to point out possible scientific miscarriages that should prompt us to think things through more carefully!

    Do we all remember some years back when children in Northern Nigeria were dying after what was polio vaccination and the subsequent year there was some resistance up north about vaccinating their children?

    Is there any evidence that this discontinued polio vaccine may still be in use in rural Liberia, Sierra Leone & Guinea? Also, please read about ‘Mary’s monkeys’.

    I saw the video a commenter on BN put up earlier about chimps & hepatitis B testing done in Liberia years ago. The commentator on the video said the chimps were injected with hepatitis B and other diseases in other to carry out research to find cures,…. what’s worrying is,
    No 1- the other diseases were not mentioned,
    No 2- the chimps were not put to sleep after the research(which tends to be the case), but were placed on an island in… guess where? LIBERIA! And they (who ever this they are), still send money to feed these chimps and pay the staff who care for them…. interesting right?

    Let’s continue to find out facts for our selves o we are able to take steps to stay safe & pray of course!

    This strain of virus may not necessarily be airborne but there could be aerosols being released by the patients by sneezing, coughing etc. Only one sub-microscopic virus particle is sufficient to establish an infection . For example,, viruses can get in through the eyes or nails at varying multiplicities . From what I’ve seen in pictures, some caregivers wear other protective gear (gloves, nose masks) but not eye goggles or covered shoes. Ebola virus is only studied in a BSL4 level containment laboratory thus, there can be no lapse in personal protection. Hopefully we can combat the virus and stop the outbreak.

    @Omooba: ‘you feel her pain?’ You’ve gotta be kidding me.
