Which makes it not an epidemic at all....sorry I couldn't resist.

That being said, I don't see this becoming much. It's actually not that easy to get, being fluid-borne and all.

Still a full on epidemic in Africa.

had a thought the other day...

so Ebola is in western africa right now.

'terrorist' organisations could easily go and get some, weaponise it and breed a whole bunch of the stuff with willingly suicidal jihadists...

It'd work in a movie. Given the evidence and the story the public would buy it.

"Ebola Aerosol attack on Washington DC".

Not a good thought. It's doubtless somebody's job somewhere in the Pentagon to think it.

FEMA also almost undoubtedly already have a response plan, and one might guess that it would probably involve quarantine (concentration) camps.


___

Here's the other thought.

This also means that any of the current holders of weaponised Ebola (USA, UK, Japan, Russia, most likely China) could deploy the stuff almost completely tracelessly, most likely by drones, and then easily finger ISIS or Al-Qu'aeda for having done it. The beauty of independent clandestine terrorist cells is that nobody knows what anybody else is doing, so even a terrorist leader wouldn't necessarily be able to tell you for sure it wasn't the work of their own forces.

Don't think you're allowed to make that movie.

___

Don't want to scare anybody or anything, just a thought.

This guy is the head of the CDC and I've been following him since the first patient came to America.

This guy flew over without any symptoms, arrived and was fine for a few days. Then, he began to feel ill, went to the hospital in Dallas. They checked him out and released him. (???????? west african, just flew over from Liberia, showing symptoms of Ebola and they released him???) He went home and a few days later returned the hospital where he was finally diagnosed a few days later. How many people did he come into contact while he was contagious? They need to be isolated.

HIV is asymptomatic for, oh, a decade.

Ebola is SERIOUSLY F'ING SYMPTOMATIC.

We will not have a widespread ebola outbreak in the United States, since we are on alert and employ protective covering devices.

Meanwhile, freaking out about 1 case is, I feel, an insult to those countries that are suffering thousands of cases.

Since Texas does not by in large believe in science. Perhaps they should rely on prayer and handguns to help them with this.

I know you're goofing but I do expect this to happen. All the "zombie apocalypse" shit is psyop warmup for mass hysterical exercise of the 2nd Amendment mentality.

I suppose the irony that the world does not have a paid on call medical army to save people as opposed to kill them that can deal with outbreaks like this when they occur. Meaning this could have been fixed on the ground in Africa.

As well the underpaid by in large religious or voluntary medical groups that are trying to do this are dealing with the fact that people are afraid of them because previous work that has been done giving drugs to large groups of people there has spread aids due to use of one needle for large groups of people.

As well as fact that medical help is provided to someone of a certain religious group or as part of some type of political agenda by a first world country. Not as a human right that helps all humanity.

From what I understand in the news reports, ebola isn't contagious until symptoms show up, too so it's easier to isolate anyone infected.

Only once their symptoms are identified as those of Ebola and not just some flu.

Avoid exposure to mosquitoes and ticks and contact with rodents, non-human primates or bats. Avoid unpasteurized milk.

Yep no mosquitoes in Texas. If so they would have West Nile spread.

I would be worried if there were like 2 million bats in living in my town but that is really not the situation in Texas.......is it.

So, the hospital where this poor man is right now is less than one mile from my office, and is in between my office and my 19 month old's daycare. I drive by it every day, have had day surgery there and was just visiting my dad there about 10 days ago.

The number of news helicopters around yesterday and today is nuts, and word on the street is that people in the impacted schools are refusing to even touch each other.
