Ebola

How is it possible that we don't have an Ebola thread yet?

Since the latest "threat" is in my backyard, I thought I would start a thread

What do you think? Much ado about nothing? Not enough being done? It is time to break out the zombie survival kits?

Not scared at all yet, but lots to consider. The US, and probably other nations have level 4 viruses stored for "research" - equally as dangerous as Ebola. People slip up - one of those viruses could get out and cause calamity. As humans destroy rain forests, other viruses are likely to escape their usual habitat and reach heavily populated areas.

I expect other situations like this to occur. We need to find antidotes for the known viruses like Ebola, Marburg. So far, the pharma companies don't consider it profitable to make antidotes.

If you haven't yet seen the movie "Outbreak" - rent it!

If I were even remotely interesting as a case study of anything, and I could take my dogs along, I would!

I was glad one wasn't started, because that's all you hear about anymore. It's like anthrax - it will be dead news in another month.

I just think it was really retarded for that infected woman to get on a damn plane. +1 for stupidity. Not to mention that man who made a joke when he sneezed and they wouldn't let the plane take off until he was tested. +2 for stupidity.

I have kept up with the news on Ebola, a bit. I have not been all consumed like some people I know. When I get on FB all I see is EBOLA! EBOLA! EBOLA! EBOLA! Of course the conspiracy theorists started months ago and I am sure they are in a tizzy at this point. I know the news is. Political Parties are already using Ebola as an excuse to sling mud at each other. Democrats caused Ebola! Republicans caused Ebola! The CDC is trying to kill us!!! Makes you wonder what people did during The Black Death/Bubonic Plague.


There is no doubt Ebola is no joke. I do expect more cases. I will not be surprised if it spreads but what do you do? It's not the first time an infectious disease has made rounds. It won't be the last.

ETA: To answer your ?, Scrills... I do think much ado is being made, at this point, but also appreciate the honesty I have seen from some giving conferences/updates. Point blank: Look, you can expect to hear about more confirmed cases. You can and you will. As far as what is being done, it's still early and this is a new one in the US. A few mistakes will be made. That is a given. I do not think the 2nd nurse should have been cleared to fly but do think the risk level was very low at that point. Lesson learned and it should not happen again with someone being monitored. Those not monitored will be a different story. Right now I just hope better protective equipment and policies are put in place at hospitals. They will be the first dealing with bodily fluids. It sounds like they are working on it. I also think its a good idea to take most patients to 1 of 4 hospitals highly trained in infectious diseases, at this point. That will pose some problems though, due to transport, but should be fine right now.

Also agree the second nurse should not have been cleared to travel.

Places all over Cleveland are shutting down as people who rode on the plane with or after the nurse are popping up. Let's just say that I am in some way effected by these closing. Multiples schools, businesses, all closing. It's been the watercooler talk of the day

My understanding is there has to be a transmission of bodily fluids into your body in order to catch it. I think people have misconceptions, because it's new and also apparently very contagious, people are freaking out about it. USA is way more developed than other countries as far as our health care system. Also, an individual's immune system plays a huge part. Maybe if someone in my town sneezed on 5 people I'd be worried too. But if it's not someone I'd come in contact with directly, it shouldn't be a huge issue, unless I got their shopping cart at Walmart and rubbed my eyes. That's why I wipe the ebola off the handle every time I shop now. (Not gonna lie, the fiancÚ and I make ebola jokes at Walmart all the time. At least I'm not flying with 200 people when I do it.)

Have you seen the pics in our "people of Walmart" thread? You would do well to wipe off the handles of those shopping carts. Not because of Ebola - just plain old filth.

I travel in the NYC subways. The most scrofulous people eat, sleep, throw up (sorry) etc. in these subways. I must have the immune system of a horse - a very healthy strong horse. I never wash my hands after riding in these underground cesspools of viral plague - I should but ...Oh well, only the good die young.

^ Yeah, that's why its so important for Health Care Workers to get proper gear. They are going to be hands on during the worst periods vomiting, etc...


I sent this to my bestie awhile ago. Right after it was written. He really gets into conspiracy theories and was freaking out, non stop. It was going to be released in America, intentionally, to kill us all, etc...

http://www.theguardian.com/commentis...rrying-disease

ETA: When ^ was written I think the death count was around 2000 & something. It's 4000 now but seeing counts in the 30+ thousand for common flu's does add some perspective.

A month later he was all over the theories that Ebola had gone air born and officials knew. Nope! This is a pretty piece from Nat Geo about the virus & West Africa.

the Vietnamese community is praying for the two nurses stricken with the virus one of whom is a Vietnamese American. Im also glad they didnt euthanize her dog like the Spanish did with their ebola case. I hope for a speedy and complete recovery.
