“We cannot beat Ebola without funding,” Obama said Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health. “If we want other countries to step up, we must lead the way.

The $6.2 billion would go toward fighting Ebola in West Africa, establishing more Ebola treatment centres and assessment hospitals and advance the development of vaccines.

Obama said the United States was able to galvanize about $2 billion in international commitments since mid-September.

“This truly has to be a global effort, but that money would not be there if not for U.S. leadership,” Obama continued.

Obama toured the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institutes of Health to congratulate Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. Tony Fauci on the first published results from Phase 1 clinical trials of an Ebola vaccine candidate. This clears the way for large scale clinical trials in West Africa in the weeks ahead, according to the White House.

The disease had ravaged much of West Africa since August, killing thousands. Obama again said the disease must be fought in West Africa to prevent future isolated cased in the United States.

Obama said that helping to fight the disease is a test of the national character. Further, he said that the funding request “can’t get caught up in normal politics.”

“We need to extinguish this disease,” Obama said. “It is not something we can just manage. We need to stamp it out.”

Obama was briefed earlier Tuesday by White House Ebola Response Coordinator Ron Klain.

The United States has expanded the network of hospitals to deal with Ebola from just eight hospitals to currently 53 beds in 35 designated treatment centers across the country. This happened after the Department of Health and Human Services worked with several states.

The testing capacity has gone from 13 labs in August to 42 labs in 36 states currently.

UNITED STATES: Bill Gates Owns Patent to Ebola Vaccine and All Other Related Vaccines ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES – September 17 – This is post from a fellow blogger and writer David Hodge and this a snippet from his article – source link to more at the bottom of this post:

Bill Gates Owns Patent to Ebola Vaccine '

Bill Gates Owns Patent to Ebola Vaccine ‘

Nothing changed just as he wrote it but no surprise for me! He wrote as follows: 

I have previously reported that Monsanto, or Monsatan as many call them, has partnered with the Department of Defense to use a proxy third party company to develop a vaccine against Ebola.

The seed money began at $1.5 million. The value of the deal could grow to an estimated $86 million dollars.

The company’s name is Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TKMR) (TKM.TO), a leading developer of RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics. “TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defence’s Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office”.  

As breaking and shocking of a news story as this has the potential to be, the real story is that this is not the most important part of the Ebola threat which has invaded the United States. The truth of the matter is that these unholy and untrustworthy associations, when it comes to “fighting” the Ebola virus, represent the mere tip of the iceberg.
