Survival ProTip: If things keep going south, being able to filter water at home or on the go can be the difference between life and death. It can be the difference between being beholden to government or being self-reliant. I like the big water filter, but the smaller ones work well while costing less.
A total of 16 new suspected Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) cases were reported last week in Afghanistan. According to the World Health Organization, that brings the total cases to 115.
So far, eight deaths have been associated with this outbreak, which started in Iraq.
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever is a tick-borne viral disease of zoonotic origin. The virus is primarily transmitted to people from ticks and livestock animals. People working with livestock animals and handling animal tissues, such as butchers and slaughterhouse workers, are at risk of infection.
There are a few hemorrhagic diseases spreading right now, including the Marburg virus, and a “mystery” disease in Tanzania.
A deadly outbreak of an unknown disease in Tanzania has been identified as leptospirosis, health officials said.
More than 20 cases, including three deaths, have been reported in the southern Lindi region of Tanzania, Patients are exhibiting symptoms similar to Ebola or Marburg virus diseases. These symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and bleeding, especially from the nose, according to health officials. Preliminary results from laboratory testing earlier this month had ruled out Ebola and Marburg viruses as well as COVID-19, making the illness a mystery until now. Officials claim this is called leptospirosis.
Leptospirosis is transmitted directly or indirectly from animals to humans, mainly when people come into contact with the urine of infected animals or a urine-contaminated environment. The bacteria enters the body through cuts or abrasions on the skin, or through the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose and eyes. Human-to-human transmission is rare, according to the WHO.
It’s a potentially serious but treatable disease with symptoms that may mimic those of a number of unrelated infections, such as influenza, meningitis, hepatitis, dengue or viral haemorrhagic fevers, according to the WHO.-ABC News
Stay alert to these diseases. There could be an “outbreak” of any one of them at any time. Some will be horrific while others could be a repeat of COVID. All of it will be full of state-sponsored mainstream media lie though designed to get the public to relinquish what’s left of their incredibly limited “freedom” (if we can even call it that.)

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
