Really look at a map! Mexico is not even on the same continent as Africa were Ebola is!

It more likely to enter through your airports!

But hey blame Mexico right? Thats the in thing.


All you need is for one infected person to smuggle themselves out of Africa without knowing they were sick. For them to have the longer incubation of 21 days maybe, then to hook up with their coyote and make it across the border before becoming so ill that someone notices something is up. Then, they fall seriously ill in one of those packed places with all those other immigrants? And how many could be infected before getting shipped off and dumped?

The border folks and DHS aren't even informing local officials in some places where the immigrants are being dumped.

What better way to begin population control? Just read another story of chicken pox halting any more new mexico facilities from taking in immigrants as well. They are being transplanted all over the US at this point. All it takes is one infected person in each location to create a completely uncontrollable outbreak. This is playing out like a crazy movie script.

How crazy would that be....chicken pox/shingles and Ebola hitting us at the same time. Chicken pox alone would spread through the US adult population very quickly. Kind of like a one two punch...weaken the immune system enough to allow for Ebola to spread even easier for the kill shot.

Don't get me wrong. I still don't at all think it's likely that this scenario could occur, but I don't think it's impossible either. Everyone who wants to break into this country from anywhere in the world knows the way in is through Mexico. And right now, our pants are seriously down with this immigration stupidity and refusal to control the border in the hopes of creating a crisis worthy of Pres. Phone and Pen.

So far it not airborne in humans.

Luckily for now.

If it went airborne we would know dammed quick.

How easy would it spread during flu season?

Flu season runs thru football season in the U.S and there is plenty of drinking going on during this time and we know alcohol can weaken the immune system, so would a crowded Super Bowl venue be the perfect place to spread Ebola?


Wont spread as well as Flu is airborne Ebola not.

The risk from handling vomit and bodily fluids. Its why it normally spreads to the family and caregivers of the patient which is a big thing in Africa as due to limited hospital facility's its normally family and friends that provide care.




I understand what you are saying, what I really want to know, is flu season the perfect time to spread Ebola since people are handling bodily fluids?

How long would it go unnoticed because of the flu season.


O it wont go unnoticed, that's one advantage of Ebola.

But you may have a slight point as people may be more prone to infection. Still its a much different animal to flu.

Yeah, I think they mean "airborne" in the sense of someone with Ebola coughs or sneezes and the infected mucus particles travel a short distance and someone else breathes it in and becomes infected that way. It's not yet airborne in the traditional sense. * KEYWORD: "yet".

Well there is a Airborne strain the Ebola Reston. Its almost identical to the Zaire strain genetically but that airborne mutation make its mortality rate 0% those infected even showed no symptoms or mild cold like symptoms.

So a airborne mutation may render it harmless.

MAY

The bastards in control are probably WAITING for a nice burn through Africa.

Just heard on local news they are actually flying two people with Ebola into the US and one is to be treated in my town...atlanta...at Emory. WTF? Now I'm a bit freaked out. Why the hell would you fly them in?

I answered this in another thread:

I expect, in part, this is to facilitate study of the virus in patients where more resources and minds can be brought to bear. My bet is there will be more than just this one ( I guess now two) patient(s) brought here over time.
