"Goodbye Ebola," they say but the disease is still a threat in West Africa

Teresa Romero tested positive and drew more than 375,000 signatures. At the same time in West Africa 10,000 infected poor people were dying and the West closed its borders. Nobody in the streets to protest 

By the middle of 2014, international health organizations and authorities knew they probably could stop Ebola by the end of the year, or even earlier, if they would properly peer various scientific studies, presented to them by Dr. David Fedson early August 2014, and by EBOLA ATTACK TEAM in Sierra Leone on 3 October 2014 about the promising effect of the oral medicines: Statin (Atorvastatin), Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (Irbesartan) and Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (Clomiphene). 

Unlike experimental Ebola treatments/vaccines, these drugs already had FDA & EMA approval since 30 years and are produced as inexpensive generics. The medicines are officially registered and for decades administered to millions of people around the world without serious side effects.

On 3 October 2014 the Ebola Attack Team members presented Dr. Fedson and colleagues’ thesis with Concordia medicines, studies and scientific reports to Professor Monty Jones who introduced it to the EOC (Emergency Operations Centre). 

The CDC USA, explicitly mentions on its website that “Clinical management of EVD should focus on supportive care of complications, such as septic shock” and that is precisely what EAT and its medical team proposed. Dr. Simona Zipursky, the W.H.O. representative in Sierra Leone and representatives of international health organizations, including CDC/USA, IMS, Red Cross and MSF aggressively turned against this promising protocol and started to indoctrinate the authorities and health care community to ignore and deny the proposed medication. 

Billions of Dollars were at stake and the Ebola Attack Team solution only cost a couple of millions from which they would not benefit. With petty cash the Ebola crisis could have been stopped before the end of 2014 but the global health organizations choose for a multi billion dollar experiment and let people suffer for nothing than arrogance and selfishness. Probably thousands of lives could have been saved and so the economy.

For unknown reasons and hidden agendas they purposely denied Ebola patients access to what was proven by medical Ebola Attack Team doctors and which cured 300 Ebola patients without side effects in Sierra Leone between October 3 and December 15, 2014. 

Ebola Attack Team doctors assume that the intake of medicines like antibiotics, malaria tablets, and HIV blockers combined with long term hibernating symptomless Ebola in the eye and brain fluids, leave residues in the central nervous system and protected genetic reproduction center that causes Post Ebola Syndrome symptoms. 

The medical experts in the group came to the conclusion that a combination of the proposed drugs held promising impact to ease aftereffect symptoms and rapidly help the immune system to defeat the symptoms and eliminate remaining Ebola residue. The medicine inhibit key inflammatory chemicals in the blood like interleukin 1-2 and 6, tumor necrosis factor, and interferons.

The reason why Ebola Attack Team’s success was belittled was to keep the billions of dollars floating for years to come. From a humanitarian point of view it was the task and moral duty of Ebola experts and medical doctors, who were extensively informed about a promising treatment-protocol, to offer Ebola patients free choice on voluntary basis. During vaccination with experimental drugs, frequently quarantined individuals, of which some considered “high risk”, escaped afraid for vaccination fearing that the vaccine would kill them or give them Ebola.

If they would have been offered the oral medicines they would have taken them like candy and the risk for them to infect others would have been minimized to almost zero and protected the nation for new cases. The mission of institutions and organizations such as WHO, major foundations and NGOs like MSF and Partners in Health is to improve public health and relieve human suffering. 

They should be indifferent to the question of whether Ebola treatments should target the virus or the host response; they should have been interested in any treatment that is effective and saves lives.
