Sexual Contact May Be Causing The Ebola Virus To Spread

Sexual Contact Ebola Spread

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently indicated that it has discovered evidence linking sexual contact to the spread of the Ebola virus.

The potential for new outbreaks is being facilitated in part by a lack of education regarding treatment which has left sufferers hiding from organizations providing aid as in the case of some African villages where rumors have spread indicating that victims are taken to treatment centers to die where their organs are then harvested and their blood taken.

As a result, cases have, according to Dr. Harris Margaret Harris with the World Health Organization, “simply went underground” in order to avoid detection.

Just last week, Sierra Leone placed 2.5 million people on lock-down in an attempt to find new cases and curb the deadly virus, but authorities lost control after residents ran out of supplies and left their homes to collect supplies which they desperately required.

Adam Dumbuya, who was amongst those in search of food aid after the lockdown, was quoted in an ABC News report as having said that residents “are desperate for food” and dissatisfied with the the distribution is unfolding.

People are desperate for food, because of how the distribution is going. They are not satisfied and think they will not be able to get any because of the number of people present for the distribution

Dr. Harris was quoted in the aforementioned report on ABC News as having said that one of the people infected managed to disappear and then return to his home village, Bombali, where “he sparked another 30 cases.” Subsequently, Harris indicated that the WHO is “really saying” to “now use condoms at all times and with all manner of sexual contact”.

We had an instance a few weeks ago in Sierra Leone where we had a cluster of cases in the fishermen’s community, on the wharves in Freetown […] And one of the people who was infected disappeared and went off to his home village in Bombali, he sparked another 30 cases […] And we’re really saying now use condoms at all times. Use condoms at all times and with all manner of sexual contact

The Ebola virus is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with a strain of the Ebola virus.

Back in August of 2014, we reported here on Immortal News that the Ebola virus had spread to 2,200 in West Africa, causing 1,229 deaths at the time. There have since been thousands of cases reported across Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and other countries to a lesser extent — even the United States to a small degree.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have indicated the 2014 Ebola epidemic to be the largest in history.

According to the CDC, the risk of an Ebola outbreak affecting multiple people in the United States is “very low.”

What are your thoughts on the WHO’s advice on condom use during all manner of sexual contact in light of the notion that the virus may be spread through sexual contact?
