Phi Beta Iota: Most important lesson not covered in the excellent below document:
“The truth at any cost lowers all other costs.”
CDC has been misleading first responders and nurses in particular with respect to the efficacy of the N-95 mask that they recommend. We have no direct knowledge at Earth Intelligence Network but we are told that Ebola is a .08 micron threat and the N-95 mask is only effective to .3 microns — anything smaller including Ebola is not stopped.
The matter of Ebola going air-borne has been severely under-reported. Eye protection appears to be essential.
The recommendations of Laurie Garrett with respect to instant testing and international certificates have been ignored.
On a positive note, we believe the Ebola threat to be hyped just as SARS was hyped.
Still unclear to us is the for-profit corruption surrounding the patents associated with Ebola, and the degree to which natural cures including oxygen and vitamin c are being repressed by a combination of ignorance and corruption.
