Virologist: “There Will Be More Infections… We Need to Be Vigilant” *Interview With Infectious Disease Expert*

New viruses are one of the more prominent threats that mankind faces. With the H7N9 flu virus now spreading by human-to-human transmission, and the MERS Coronavirus spreading in the middle east and having a 50% mortality rate, it’s becoming increasingly possible for the contagion to spread across the globe.

With viruses continuously evolving, as we have seen with H7N9 jumping from animals to humans, we could literally be just a mutation away from a crisis similar to what the world saw during the H1N1 Spanish Flu variant pandemic of 1918, which infected half a billion people and killed an estimated 5% of the world’s population..

Full Spectrum Survival interviews leading infectious disease expert Dr. Ian MacKay of Virology Down Under to discuss the possibility of these viruses becoming a global pandemic.

We don’t know a lot of things, including what the host is for this virus. Where it came from – has it come from animals… we really don’t know.

We don’t know how these patients are getting the virus; if it is from an animal and what sort of contact they’re having. We don’t know how well it transmits from patient to patient.

We also don’t know much about the variation of the virus. At the moment it doesn’t seem to be very well spread between people, but that may change as the virus evolves as it infects more people.

The potential [for global pandemic] is there for a number of viruses, like the H7N9 we saw break out earlier in the year. Based on what we know right now, the potential for pandemic is quite low… It’s not got the potential to spread very quickly between people. It’s a numbers game in transmission, and at the moment that’s not likely to happen.

But we need to be vigilant, we need to keep looking at the virus and keep studying its genetic signatures and see if it changes and adapts and becomes more able to spread rapidly and through people.

There will be more infections, but not a vast and exponential rise unless the virus itself changes.

By the time the spread of contagion becomes mainstream news it’ll be too late, and will have likely infected scores of people all over the planet, making it nearly impossible to contain.

Keeping abreast of developments, transmission rates, and the spread of deadly viruses is one of the only preventative measures we can take.

Once infection is widespread, activating a Pandemic Preparedness Plan will be your only saving grace, so be sure to have one in place before hand.

As noted by virologist Ian MacKay, the probability of a contagion with MERS Coronavirus or H7N9 is low, but nonetheless possible.

Be ready just in case the situation goes critical.

Does the Bible Predict God’s End-Times Destruction of Syria? My interview with The Blaze.

blaze-logo(Jerusalem, Israel) — In light of the horrific carnage in Syria and warnings the country could completely implode, TheBlaze has published an interview with me about the prophecies of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 and the general topic of Bible prophecy and events in the Middle East. Here are excerpts from the story by reporter Billy Hallowell:

As the situation in Syria intensifies and the United Nations reports that 93,000 civilians have been killed since 2011, the United States is taking increased action. With the deadly drama continuing to progress, it’s likely that some — especially considering Syria’s Biblical and geographical significance — will see End Times prophecy unfolding.

A silly suggestion to non-believers and others who disagree with conservative views on the Bible and an undeniable reality to others, the debate over signs and symbols associated with Jesus’ return presents ever-fascinating discussions. But while author Joel C. Rosenberg embraces prophetic notions, others, like “Bible Answer Man” Hank Hanegraaff reject these ideals.

TheBlaze spoke with both Rosenberg and Hanegraaff in an effort to better understand how Syria might fit into Christian theology and prophecy. The former, an author and communications expert who has been called a modern-day Nostradamus, has produced intriguing, yet eerie, writings, as they often highlight and seemingly predict major world-wide events months before they actually occur. The latter, however….

Is war with Iran unavoidable? Video of my Fox News interview on what lessons Israeli leaders are drawing from North Korean nuclear crisis.

joel-NKcrisis-FoxDoes the crisis in Korea make an Israeli war with Iran unavoidable?

On Thursday, I was interviewed on the Fox News Channel about the situation on the Korean Peninsula and its linkage to Iran. We discussed the challenges President Obama is having in facing his first nuclear crisis. We also discussed how Israeli leaders are perceiving the situation and why this crisis in the Pacific could potentially accelerate Israel’s decision to launch strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

In the Mideast context, the central question is how Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and his War Cabinet assess the implications and ramifications of the North Korea nuclear program and the Obama administration’s unwillingness to take decisive action to stop Pyongyang from building nuclear weapons. The more alone Israel feels, the more likely it will be to strike Iran hard and fast.

Here’s the link to the video — it runs just under 4 minutes.
