Ebola 'What is it? and Where did it Start!'

Ebola, previously known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with one of the Ebola virus strains. Ebola can cause disease in humans and nonhuman primates (monkeys, gorillas, and chimpanzees). In past outbreaks the death percentage was 88% now it has been reduced to 53.8%, either by medical care or due to mutation. It is unclear.

The recent outbreak isn't just the worst single Ebola outbreak in history, it has now killed more than all the others combined.

Healthcare workers are visibly struggling, the response to the outbreak has been damned as "lethally inadequate" and the situation is showing signs of getting considerably worse.

The outbreak has been running all year, but the latest in a stream of worrying statistics shows 40% of all the deaths have been in just the past three weeks.

So what can we expect in the months, and possibly years, to come? The stories of healthcare workers being stretched beyond breaking point are countless. A lack of basic protective gear such as gloves has been widely reported.The charity "Médecins Sans Frontières" has an isolation facility with 160 beds in Monrovia. But it says the queues are growing and they need another 800 beds to deal with the number of people who are already sick.This is not a scenario for containing an epidemic, but fuelling one.

Albox town hall illegal homes compensation

ALBOX COUNCIL has been ordered to pay compensation to four British families for moral damages.

The council is preparing an appeal against the judgement by the criminal court number two of Almeria which requires local authorities to pay almost €150,000 to the affected families. Mayor of Albox, Rogelio Mena, said: “It is unacceptable that we have to pay the consequences of the disastrous management of the Partido Popular.” He did, however, applaud the judge’s decision to refuse to proceed with demolition of the affected buildings.

Gordon Ramsay’s Costa del Nightmare restaurant Jacks Chicken Shack faces fresh disaster

Four million+ viewers tuned in last month to see the famous Channel 4 chef Gordon Ramsey transform a family run business in Fuengirola from ‘disgusting’ into a clean productive eatery.

But according to reports locally the family-run restaurant that is supposed to be now thriving is now losing £2,500 (€3183 per month) and will probably not last another six months.

The restaurant, originally called the Mayfair, was transformed from what the Michelin-starred chef described as “slop” and “disgusting” to a tasty chicken restaurant called 'Jack’s Chicken Shack'. The place was revamped and the punters were queuing around the corner. 

Spanish nurse tests positive for Ebola

A SPANISH NURSE in Madrid has tested positive for the Ebola Virus after coming into contact with the infected missionary Manuel García Viejo, who got infected while working in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

The auxiliary nurse has tested positive for the deadly virus after displaying symptoms including a high fever.

The Health Ministry has called a crisis meeting, and is awaiting the results.

Gota Fria - Storm Hits Camposol 'D' In Mazarron Municipality

A huge wave of water has washed away cars, swimming pools and possessions

This summer the region of Murcia has suffered an unusually warm and dry spell, and after eleven and a half months of the hydrological cycle, there has now been just 36% of the usual rainfall across the Region of Murcia, making it the driest year since records of this nature were first kept in 1941.

Compounding the dry weather, the temperatures have been higher than normal, nearly 1 degree above the average across the summer and over three degrees warmer during the first two weeks of September.
Sea temperatures have risen, and the ground is baked hard and dry, meaning that the first rains of the autumn to fall have hit solid ground, running off into the streets and causing flooding in the central areas of the Murcia Region.
