Jamaica health officials monitoring West Africa ebola virus outbreak


KINGSTON, Jamaica, Thursday July 31, 2014, CMC – Jamaica’s response to the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa will be discussed at a meeting scheduled for Thursday at the Ministry of Health.

Health Minister, Dr. Fenton Ferguson, says the situation is being closely monitored based on Jamaica’s open borders and as a result steps will be taken to prevent a possible spread.

Global medical charity, Doctors Without Borders, has warned that the Ebola crisis is unprecedented and out of control.

According to Ferguson, based on the warning, Jamaica’s preparedness must be addressed.

More than 670 people have died of Ebola in the outbreak, the largest on record since the disease was detected in the 1970s.

The International Civil Aviation Organisation has met global health officials to discuss measures to stop the disease from crossing borders.

    Relax, Caribbean and rest assured – once you start doing the Personal Virus and Cancer Killer, you will not give a damn what sort of viruses stalk out there – Ebola, West Nile, HIV-AIDS, etc. I got a deadly weapon against the deadliest type of Ebola Virus. Ebola Virus Disease is not a problem at all and can be erased from the face of the Earth along with any other diseases, known on the planet once and for all – everybody can be his own Jesus – by doing the Personal Virus and Cancer Killer – those infected will be cured and will join all the rest in staying absolutely healthy all the time – by doing just an exercise for a minute a day for prevention and for 3 minutes a day for the cure – any infections [Ebola, West Nile (even if one is bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes), Colds, Flues, HIV-AIDS, HPV, H(B)CV, TB, Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever, etc.] are cured for max. 7 days and any cancers (Leukemia, Breast, Cervical, Ovarian, Bone, Brain, etc.), Diabetes and Strokes – for max. 30 days – no metastases or recurrences of any cancers are at all possible – the Virus/Cancer Killer is their devastating destroyer. Even bio-terrorism is much too weak against everybody (kids and adults) doing the Virus/Cancer Killer – any bio-terrorist bugs are killed the the moment they touch us.
    I leave it to everybody to estimate how much the greatest discovery in more than 2 million years of humankind on the planet should be paid for. Then I will disclose the Personal Virus/Cancer Killer to everybody on Earth. That will keep all the people absolutely healthy all the time, all their lives – never getting sick of any diseases even for a second.
