No, he was in better shape than her. He started to deteriorate quickly after he arrived. That is why they gave him the thawed serum.

No, a good medical worker would verify, especially before telling their family and scaring the crap out of them or risking them telling other people.

A bad medical worker would start calling people "OMG THE EBOLA THE EBOLA. IT'S IN THE FLORA AND FALLING FROM PLANES."

From what I can find the lady went into the hospital and said "I'm sick and I was in Cape Verde, I might have Ebola."

Cape Verde is indeed part of West Africa...however it is an island a few hundred miles from the coast and nowhere near countries with an Ebola issue...

Everything on the internet is so generic concerning this case, and the hospital that was mentioned earlier in the thread denies having had a possible ebola patient.

And it's one thing to say "I can't tell you that" and another to say "We never had anyone who was tested for Ebola".

Same here.

Here is a snip regarding one of those results.


According to cogent information gathered by this paper, Rev. Brother Patrick Nshamdze, was tested positive after he supposedly came in contact with a patient who died from the virus.

Our information divulged that on the 17th of this month, his specimen was taken and the result, which came on the next day (July 18), proved negative.

Not being satisfied, the report further divulged, the ailing Catholic hospital director decided to seek further treatment abroad, but his trip was subjected to Ebola test.

It was based on this that he did another test on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, which proved positive, contrary to the first test he underwent.

You can't just be exposed to Ebola and right away take a test. I believe a period of time has to pass before you show up as infected on blood tests. So if he was tested within hours of coming in contact with a patient, he would show negative. I think they test you every hour for the first 24-48 hours or some such if you came in direct contact with a symptomatic Ebola carrier.

Watching live report here.

At least they admit the only reason to have brought Brantly and Writebol was for 'research opportunity'.

Why would he say a cure will come out of it?
odd.

We will have to just agree to disagree about that. My mom was an RN my whole life, so I know how much they trust each other when it comes to this stuff. You can respond by calling them liars or bad nurses and flinging insults, I will just store the info away with a little skepticism. And the poster who was posting the BS about it being in "flora" and falling from the sky is not the same poster who gave us the Ohio info. Let's not lump them all together.

Nope, he was already symptomatic for three days or so before the first negative test, not just exposed.


Br Patrick, born in Cameroon, was tested Ebola positive on July 29, after being sick for two weeks. He had been previously tested on July 18, with a negative result.

Can you just let it go. The report was from a member of this thread, from a relative who worked in a hospital. It's been hashed over enough already. I agree with others that I would like the option of taking action from possible accurate inside reports than waiting to see it on the 5:00 news.

There are no established rules in this thread, nor any thread on ATS, that says you can't report something that was told to you by another person in situations like this. We are not dealing with my momma saw a UFO reports here. We are dealing with ebola.

If it gets under your skin so much you have to keep throwing it against the wall to see if it sticks. Perhaps you should start a thread on it.

JMOHO...

I don't think you understand how much of a piece of work this guy and his mother in law are...

It would have been one thing to say: My MIL works at a hospital and they have a woman who suspects she has Ebola as she was in a West African country within the last two weeks. This is the hospital and here is the info."

However this guy came in and said: CONFIRMED! EBOLA IN OHIO! PEACE OUT!

So yeah. They are both pieces of work.

He did not post and dash. He replied to our questions and tried to help as much as he could. Now, stop bashing him.

So we should just let disinformation run rampant? if someone posts egregiously wrong information that could potentially induce panic and fear, they need to be called out on it.

Half the people in this thread are doing nothing but attempting to induce fear and panic, and those same people, including you at times, SEEM like they WANT everything to go south.

Only 3 possibilities:

1. He is very brave.

2. He is very stupid.

3. The whole thing is BS and a psy-op.

Yep...it's that rubber protocol line I mentioned earlier. I can't believe that man is so arrogant that he thinks what he is doing is all hunky dory. I'd place my bet on him being a reporter looking for an inside scoop. He should at least think about his family and friends. He hasn't a clue what preceded him walking up to a person in a FULL ON HAZMAT SUIT.

Where are people's brains. There should have at least been yellow caution tape put up to let the dumb-shiites know where the line of approach has reached a cut off point.

Simply amazingly stupid...

Hey, have you guys seen this?




Dr. Margaret Chan, the W.H.O. director general, was speaking as she met with the leaders of the three most affected countries — Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — in Conakry, the Guinean capital, for the introduction of a $100 million plan to deploy hundreds more medical professionals in support of overstretched regional and international health workers.

“This meeting must mark a turning point in the outbreak response,” Dr. Chan said, according to a W.H.O. transcript of her remarks. “If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socioeconomic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries.”

She said the outbreak was “caused by the most lethal strain in the family of Ebola viruses.”

NY Times.



Now click on the 'transcript link'.

This is what you get:



If you follow their replacement description of the meeting, you'll see the new SANITIZED version.

Good grief.

He posted there was a confirmed case then came back 13 hours later...If you don't think that is peacing out on sensitive information then I don't know what to tell you...

Hopefully he has learned from this life lesson and will better vet such sensitive information in the future.

Haven't you noticed...this is what this thread is all about.

Bored people who are hoping for a disaster scenario so they can have some excitement. They don't even care when people are lying, like in the case you are mentioning, as long as it pushes the fear and panic.

This thread is about doom porn, not actual information. They don't want to hear things like, Ebola is highly contagious but difficult to transmit because it is just passed by fluids. They don't want to hear that even if someone got Ebola in the United States, it wouldn't be a doomsday scenario because our healthcare system is better than they have in Africa. They don't want to hear that the death rate of Ebola in the United States would be drastically lower than what we see in Africa. And they don't want to hear that two patients being brought here for treatment is not the end of the world.

They want drama, they don't care about facts.
