PLAGUES AND PESTILENCES
Superbugs could ‘cast the world back into the dark ages’, David Cameron says
July 2, 2014 — The Telegraph.co.uk reports: “The world could be ‘cast back into the dark ages of medicine’ where people die from treatable infections because deadly bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics, David Cameron has warned.
The Prime Minister has called for governments and drug companies around the world to work together to ‘accelerate’ the discovery of a new generation of antibiotics.
His intervention comes amid fears in the medical profession that manageable illnesses like pneumonia and tuberculosis could kill huge numbers of people like they did early in the twentieth century.
About 25,000 people die annually across Europe because of infections that are resistant to antibiotic drugs, Mr. Cameron said…” (Pestilences are predicted as final day signs just preceding Christ’s return to earth to set up His eternal kingdom. Matthew 24:7: “…there shall be famines, and pestilences…” and Revelation 6:7, 8: “…when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. See the next report.)

Ebola spreads from close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people…
The Ebola virus has alarmed international health officials because the frequency of international air travel has increased the possibility the outbreak in one nation might quickly be transmitted to other countries by patients in the incubation phase of the infection…”
