lots of other stuff too to be found in the thread
I'm going to cross post this and if I get mod-slapped, so be it.
A pregnant woman who went for her usual check up at the First Consultant Hospital Obalande – same hospital that Patrick Sawyer was admitted – tested positive of the virus on Friday. She got infected after being treated by the same nurse, Obi Justina Ejelonu, who attended to the Liberian carrier, Patrick Sawyer.
Recall that two nurses came in direct contact with Mr. Sawyer and one of them died last week – the other nurse, Justina is still alive. The pregnant woman has since been quarantined at the mainland hospital where there is an isolation emergency centre for Ebola virus victims.
If she (the infected nurse) was showing symptoms, how is it that she was able to perform her duties?
How many other people did she infect?
When an infection enters the body, proteins called interferons send an alert to the body's antiviral immune system that something bad is happening. That message carrier, labeled "STAT1," gets a kind of super highway or "emergency access lane" to deliver the alert to the immune system's nucleus as quickly as possible, so the body can start battling the virus.
Now, here's where the researchers say Ebola is different. The deadly virus comes equipped with a protein called VP24 which zeros in on STAT1 and blocks it from rolling down that super highway, thus keeping the immune system in the dark, so it can't put its defense system in action.

It hasn't worked on the Spanish priest. He died
I know some doctors over here (Brazil). Patient was diagnosed with suspected case of Ebola at Hospital Geral de Guarulhos (Guarulhos General Hospital near São Paulo's international airport) later transferred to reference hospital Emilio Ribas and died yesterday night. Nothing on msm yet.
Health Minister Arthur Chioro has ruled out any concerns around cases in Brazil at this time and said it is “unlikely” that an infected person will enter the country. “There are no risks of an outbreak of the disease in our country right now,” he said. Any newcomers with symptoms of the disease will be quarantined and taken to referral hospitals.

Edit: I also can't help but notice your registration date is 8/4, the day this story first popped up on the internet...and you are only posting in Ebola threads on both sites.
This story started making the rounds on 8/4. Your registration date is 8/4.
You are sitting here telling me to stop because I can't 100% refute it, yet you should be the one to stop because you can't even 1% prove it.
Members who choose to discuss other members, to belittle others, to bicker, to bait others may find themselves temporarily post banned.
It is NOT fair to those who read and post to ATS to have to have this serious topic derailed.
Please add valid sources to claims whenever possible.
