I have also spent a lot of time considering the possibilities of a number of viral illnesses and what the possibilities could be. There are a lot of what-ifs that should be considered by the health authorities.
As an example, they have considered the possibility of something like Ebola or Marburg virus becoming airborne or otherwise becoming more easily spread. This is altogether a terrifying thought. With the best of care, there is a 30 percent to 70 percent mortality.
However, there are even possibly more serious situations that have possibly been overlooked. One of these viral illnesses has an almost 100 percent mortality and leads to a horrendous death including stages where there is a strong impulse to bite almost any animal or human that can be reached. There has actually only been 2 reported cases of survival in the entire history of this illness. This disease, if it became widespread could almost emulate the movie "28 Days Later" where people become virtual gnashing, bloodthirsty zombies. The question that rises, is this actually possible?
The answer probably lies within the nature of the disease and its incubation cycle. This illness is extremely odd in that the incubation period can be as short as 1 week and actually as long as 5 years,
while it is normally about 28 days.
If the risk of this disease is known, it can be treated up until it reaches the final stage through injections, but once it reaches the final stage, there is little hope at all and the victim dies a horrendously agonizing death. It is also commonly apparent that the person has been infected before it gets to the late stages. Even with this, many thousands dies every year, mostly in 3rd world countries where medical care is often scarce and the person may not even realize that they have been infected.
The scariest thing is that, while not medically proven or established, it is possible to become infected through insect bites such as mosquitoes or through other ways such as tick bites. How is this possible? While the Rabies virus gravitates towards the nervous system, it can also be carries in the circulatory system, in the saliva, or the tears of an infected person or animal. Since a mosquito or a tick would only transfer a small amount of virus from one infected animal to another, this could be a reason for long term incubation periods of up to 5 years.
The scariest thing is that a person infected in this way would never know what the illness was until it was way too late. Consider the possibility of a raccoon that dies of rabies close to some major event such as a concert, mosquitoes would feast on it while still warm, carrying the virus to many unsuspecting revelers. It could be years later before an outbreak occurred, at which time, all trace-ability would be lost. Even if a few cases popped up within a couple of months after the event, what are the chances that they could trace it back? Likely, it would be very slim.
As an advocate of the electric cure and the use of zappers, I believe that I would have a far better chance of immunity and survival of such an event that most people would. Is this guaranteed? No, nothing is. However, most people would not have a chance because the zapper is not medically recognized although electric pulse devices have been popular among those that know about them for close to 300 years now.
It is strongly believed by many, myself included that these devices have the ability to quickly destroy or disable virus thereby at least giving the immune system some reprieve and time to develop resistance to such viral illness. That is why, at any time that I develop any symptoms of some viral illness, or other microbial illness, I will quickly reach for one of my zappers and use it.
If you are reading this, it may be for one of several reasons. Regardless of why, you are now aware that this may be the one thing that might save the lives of many. The problem is getting the medical profession to actually care about people rather than money and try to actually test this type of product. Well, since they have not done thing in the last 270 years, what could change their minds? That comes from a profession who refused for a very long time to wash their hands, causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands, if not millions.
