The ‘urgent meeting’ is scheduled for Tuesday at 15:00 Central European Time (CET).
From the WHO:
The WHO R&D Blueprint is organizing an urgent meeting with the MARVAC partners to discuss vaccine and therapeutic candidates.
We will convene an urgent meeting to outline proposed research priorities towards the newly identified Marburg outbreak in Equatorial Guinea.
1- Outbreak sit rep including diagnostics and epi info
2- Review of core trial protocol (Ira Longini)
3- Review of available vaccines and status
4- Review on therapeutics
Could this be Plandemic 2.0?
Reports surfaced Monday about the Marburg Virus outbreak that left nine people dead.
BREAKING: Nine Dead In Marburg Virus Outbreak!
It’s reportedly the first Marburg outbreak in Equatorial Guinea.
There are additional deaths being investigated and the country has quarantined others suspected of infection.
WHO Africa provided additional details:
Equatorial Guinean health authorities sent samples to the Institut Pasteur reference laboratory in Senegal with support from World Health Organization (WHO) to determine the cause of the disease after an alert by a district health official on 7 February. Of the eight samples tested at Institut Pasteur, one turned out positive for the virus. So far nine deaths and 16 suspected cases with symptoms including fever, fatigue and blood-stained vomit and diarrhoea have been reported.
Further investigations are ongoing. Advance teams have been deployed in the affected districts to trace contacts, isolate and provide medical care to people showing symptoms of the disease. Efforts are also underway to rapidly mount emergency response, with WHO deploying health emergency experts in epidemiology, case management, infection prevention, laboratory and risk communication to support the national response efforts and secure community collaboration in the outbreak control.
WHO is also facilitating the shipment of laboratory glove tents for sample testing as well as one viral haemorrhagic fever kit that includes personal protective equipment that can be used by 500 health workers.
“Marburg is highly infectious. Thanks to the rapid and decisive action by the Equatorial Guinean authorities in confirming the disease, emergency response can get to full steam quickly so that we save lives and halt the virus as soon as possible,” said Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.
According to the WHO, there are “no vaccines or antiviral treatments approved to treat the virus.”
However, that doesn’t mean they won’t try to rush experimental ‘treatments’ for the next Plandemic.
There are “candidate vaccines with phase 1 data” being evaluated, according to the same WHO report.
