Ebola 'moving faster than efforts to control it' and WHO warn virus could spread | Mail Online

The spread of the deadly Ebola virus is out of control and the effects could be 'catastrophic', the World Health Organisation said last night.

The outbreak of the disease, the worst since it was discovered in the mid-1970s, has so far caused 729 deaths in four different countries.

At the moment its spread is contained to West Africa, but there are growing fears that it could hit the UK.

Last night WHO director-general Margaret Chan said: 'This outbreak is moving faster than our efforts to control it. If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives, severe socioeconomic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries.'

China confirms new generation long range missiles: report - Yahoo News

China has acknowledged the existence of a new intercontinental ballistic missile said to be capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads as far as the United States, state-run media reported Friday.

A government environmental monitoring centre in Shaanxi said on its website that a military facility in the province was developing Dongfeng-41 (DF-41) missiles, the Global Times reported.

The DF-41 is designed to have a range of 12,000 kilometres (7,500 miles), according to a report by Jane's Strategic Weapon Systems, putting it among the world's longest-range missiles.

It is "possibly capable of carrying multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles", the US Defense Department said in a report in June, referring to a payload of several nuclear warheads.

China's military is highly secretive, and the Global Times said it had not previously acknowledged the existence of the DF-41.

The original government web post appeared to have been deleted on Friday, but the newspaper posted a screengrab.

Massive emergency drill in New York City - New York News

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The New York City Department of Health will be conducting a massive emergency preparedness drill at 30 facilities across the city on Friday.

They are testing the delivery of emergency medications in the event of a biological attack, such as anthrax, or other large-scale public health emergency in the city. The majority of the deliveries will take place to public school buildings.

It's the largest surprise drill in the city's history. The drill was scheduled to take place from approximately 6:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The majority of participants were given no notice to better test and simulate a real emergency and response.

"The NYC Health Department is responsible for developing and executing plans for the mass dispensing of life-saving medicine in response to public health emergencies," said Dr. Oxiris Barbot, First Deputy Commissioner of the Health Department. "This exercise demonstrates our commitment to ensuring we have the capability and resources to protect the health and safety of all New Yorkers in times of crisis."

The city warned that supply trucks would be escorted by NYPD and other law enforcement vehicles across the city.

The exercise involves deploying more than 1,500 staff members from more than a dozen city agencies and setting up 30 temporary locations that would be used in the event of an emergency to dispense life-saving medication.

The goal is to see how quickly they can get the drugs distributed in case of an attack. The Health Dept. says that no actual medications would be distributed as part of the drill, and there should be no impact to other planned activities in the affected facilities.

"It is our responsibility to make sure New York City is prepared for the variety of hazards we may face, from a coastal storm to a public health incident," said NYC Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito.

Called RAMPEx, which stands for Rapid Activation for Mass Prophylaxis Exercise, the drill's estimated cost was $1.4 million. The city says it will not share the results of the test due to security concerns. The Health Department says it will use the results to make policy and operational changes to its emergency response plan

Israeli Analyst: Hamas Has 3,000 Elite Soldiers Ready to Die in Suicide Attacks on Israel | Video | TheBlaze.com

An Israeli analyst told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Friday morning that he received information from reliable sources that 3,000 Hamas elite soldiers told their families goodbye and appear ready to carry out suicide attacks on Israel.

Middle East analyst Gershon Baskin said that all the fighters were equipped with suicide vests and that they had expected to die in terrorist attacks.

Baskin spoke just hours after a Hamas suicide attack, believed to have been conducted by the group's militant wing Ezzedine al-Qassam brigade, killed two Israeli soldiers. During the surprise Hamas attack, which happened two hours into the 72-hour agreement for a cease fire, the militants captured an Israeli officer.

"You say these elite fighting forces they're all prepared– they all go in with suicided vests ready to kill themselves in order to kill Israelis?" Blitzer asked as Baskin nodded.

"I was told by someone who had spoke to al-Qassam, the military wing of officer who said that before the ground operation began they were all instructed to go to their families and say goodbye to their families with the intent that they would not be returning alive from this battle," Baskin told Blitzer in an news report airing live from Israel. "This is one of the very difficult things about fighting with an organization like Hamas, particularly these very dedicated soldiers, combatants who are not afraid to die."

"We will do what needs to be done to protect our people," Mark Regev, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Blitzer after Baskin's interview.

UN Condemns Israel's Latest War Crime: Not Sharing Iron Dome with Hamas

The UN's top human rights official again condemned Israel for its military actions to stop Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, accusing the Jewish state of "deliberately defying International Law... in a way that may constitute war crimes."

Navi Pillay told reporters following yet another "emergency" meeting of the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council that Israel was not doing enough to protect civilians. "There is a strong possibility," said the known Israel critic, "that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes."

Among the UN's long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel's refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the "governing authority" of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime against the civilians of Gaza.

The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel's Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling," she said.

CDC chief: Ebola 'could arrive in the U.S.'

http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/cdc-chief-ebola-could-arrive-in-the-u-s/

The Ebola crisis in West Africa is "definitely not under control," according to a top Centers for Disease Control official who concedes it's possible the deadly, incurable virus could come to U.S. shores.

Stephan Monroe, deputy director of the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the CDC, told CBS News the worst Ebola outbreak in history – with 1,323 cases recorded in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria and 729 deaths – is "rapidly evolving."

"Theoretically, the virus could arrive in the United States," he said.

He said the CDC, consequently, has issued a nationwide health alert to health-care providers in the U.S., with instructions to isolate anyone suspected of being infected.

The CDC instructs that "if someone presents with symptoms that are compatible with Ebola virus, to ask them about recent travel history, and if they do have a travel history and potential exposure, that they put those people into isolation and request specimens for diagnostic testing."

Monroe offered a word of reassurance, however, noting "the health care system in the U.S. is much better isolation facilities and infection control."

California drought worsens: 'May have to migrate people'

It's going from worse to worst each week in California.

Suffering in its third year of drought, more than 58 percent of the state is currently in "exceptional drought" stage, according to the latest U.S. Drought Monitor map. That marks a huge jump from just seven days ago, when about 36 percent of the state was categorized that way.

Exceptional drought, the most extreme category, indicates widespread crop and pasture losses and shortages of water in reservoirs, streams and wells.

If the state continues on this path, there may have to be thoughts about moving people out, said Lynn Wilson, academic chair at Kaplan University and who serves on the climate change delegation in the United Nations.

"Civilizations in the past have had to migrate out of areas of drought," Wilson said. "We may have to migrate people out of California."

Wilson added that before that would happen, every option such as importing water to the state would likely occur— but "migration can't be taken off the table."
