U.S. and World Overcome with New and Old Killer Diseases

EV-D68-Symptoms        Not just Ebola virus! America and the world had best get ready for other attacks from old and new killer diseases assaulting the planet with no let-ups or vaccines in sight, including: Bird flues, West Nine Virus, Cyclospora, MERS, syphillis, measles, illnesses contracted in hospitals, i.e. drug-resistant superbug infections, Teen-striking virus EV-D68, etc. and the ever-looming Chikungunya.

While near-hysteria over possibilities of Ebola outbreak here seems to have wiped it off this nation’s emotional map, virus EV-D68 which centers its attacks on children and teens, continues to soar across this country.

Although the outbreak was first noticed last month in mid-western states, it has now spread throughout the nation and in Canada.  At least four recent child-deaths are attributed to EV-D68, and children sickened from it multiplies.

CBS News reports last night:  “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed nearly 600 cases of Enterovirus D68. Most victims are children, and the virus is in 43 states, plus Washington, D.C. The CDC has confirmed 594 cases of Enterovirus D68. It has been detected in specimens from five patients who died, including a 10-year-old girl in Rhode Island.”

Yet these cases have not garnered nearly the same attention as that of African-born Thomas Eric Duncan, who succumbed to death from the Ebola virus this morning in a Dallas hospital. Is that because exotic diseases from Africa appear more threatening than those home-grown in the U.S.?

David M. Morens, M.D., and Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. write in ‘Chikungunya at the Door—Déjà Vu All Over Again?’: “We now face a new threat posed by the unrelated chikungunya virus, which causes a disease clinically similar to dengue in a similar epidemiological pattern, which is transmitted by the same mosquito vectors, and for which we also lack vaccines and specific treatments.”

In ‘Chikungunya Virus in the Americas—What a Vector-borne Pathogen Can Do,’ J. Erin Staples, M.D., Ph.D., and Marc Fischer, M.D., M.P.H. add:  “In December 2013, the first local transmission of chikungunya virus in the Western Children-getting-sickHemisphere was reported, beginning with autochthonous cases in Saint Martin.

“Since then, local transmission has been reported in 31 countries . . .  throughout the Americas, including. . . the United States and its territories (Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) . . . As of August 8, 2014, a total of 576,535 suspected and laboratory-confirmed chikungunya cases had been reported in the Americas, a case count that had nearly doubled over the previous month.

That is a half-million cases of this illness in the U.S.  Why has national media concentrated on a disease from Africa when other viruses originate at home? Is it about politics? Or because media earlier ignored thousands of African victims? Is it because the medical industry won’t admit that with its billions of dollars in manpower, education and laboratories it is still not ready for major attacks?

For blog readers who claim Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, a crucial question also looms: Who do you trust more for your healing and health: God or doctors? Don’t say both, they cannot be equal. Do you call on the church for prayer when sick? Does your church believe in God’s power to heal?

When under such attacks, God’s Word in wholesale Christian Bibles commands: “He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily (Nahum 2:1),” i.e. sickness and death is from Satan so man-up and pray!
