Granted someone should have words with him. He should be suited up.

But he is not infected.

As I have said Ebola is not spread by magic death rays. You do actually need contact with the person or there fluids.

The risk was if she had vomited on the way past, which is why if he is employed by the hospital he should have his arse fired.

Check out the guy on the right with no suit on.





Oh no, he is going to get Ebola because he is within 10 feet of a sick patient who is inside a hazmat suit.


Seriously guys...you can't get Ebola just by looking at someone who is sick.

No I haven't seen that Loam. Thank God/Goddess you brought it to our attention. I think it's warrants posting the complete (short) transcript here, for those who can't access links. Plus who know's if it will get poofed in a future net scrubbing.

Thank You Loam. This gives us an inside peek at the severity of what is happening on a global level.


WHO Director-General, west African presidents to launch intensified Ebola outbreak response plan

News release

31 July 2014 ¦ GENEVA/CONAKRY - The Director-General of WHO and presidents of west African nations impacted by the Ebola virus disease outbreak will meet Friday in Guinea to launch a new joint US$ 100 million response plan as part of an intensified international, regional and national campaign to bring the outbreak under control.

“The scale of the Ebola outbreak, and the persistent threat it poses, requires WHO and Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone to take the response to a new level, and this will require increased resources, in-country medical expertise, regional preparedness and coordination,” says Dr Chan. “The countries have identified what they need, and WHO is reaching out to the international community to drive the response plan forward.”

The Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak Response Plan in West Africa identifies the need for several hundred more personnel to be deployed in affected countries to supplement overstretched treatment facilities. Hundreds of international aid workers, as well as 120-plus WHO staff, are already supporting national and regional response efforts. But more are urgently required. Of greatest need are clinical doctors and nurses, epidemiologists, social mobilization experts, logisticians and data managers. The plan also outlines the need to increase preparedness systems in neighbouring nations and strengthen global capacities.

Key elements of the new plan, which draws on lessons learnt from other outbreaks, include strategies to:

stop transmission of Ebola virus disease in the affected countries through scaling up effective, evidence-based outbreak control measures; and
prevent the spread of Ebola virus disease to the neighbouring at-risk countries through strengthening epidemic preparedness and response measures.

WHO and affected and neighbouring countries will renew efforts to mobilize communities and strengthen communication so that people know how to avoid infection and what to do if they fear they may have come into contact with the virus.

Improving prevention, detecting and reporting suspected cases, referring people infected with the disease for medical care, as well as psychosocial support, are key. The plan also emphasizes the importance of surveillance, particularly in border areas, of risk assessments and of laboratory-based diagnostic testing of suspected cases. Also highlighted is the need to improve ways to protect health workers, a scarce resource in all three countries, from infection.

Finally, reinforcing coordination of the overall health response is critical. In particular, this includes strengthening capacities of the WHO-run Sub-regional Outbreak Coordination Centre, which was opened this month in Conakry, Guinea, to consolidate and streamline support to West African countries by all major partners and assist in resource mobilization.

The scale of the ongoing outbreak is unprecedented, with approximately 1323 confirmed and suspected cases reported, and 729 deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since March 2014. www.who.int...

I wonder why she never gave the speech? Did she even attend? Strange that they were so sure she would give the speech that they went ahead and posted it on their website. Huh. :/

Hah, that is completely on topic. It is directly about the reporting of Ebola in the USA. If you want to get extremely technical, over 80% of your posts in this thread have NOT been related specifically to the transport of the patients, but about Ebola in general.

And by all means report me. If I deserve to be slapped I'll take what I deserve.

People like you just want people like me to be quiet and let you enjoy your doom porn unabated.

Edit: The fact you think I am insulting someone by calling out the fact they lied, either intentionally or unintentionally, shows what you want out of this thread. You want doom porn.

Has anyone seen an update on the test results from the NYC patients??

Last I read there were 6 possible cases?

I think the worry about that in this thread is because there have been over 100 health care workers in Africa, presumably at least some of which wore hazmat suits while working, that still ended up getting it. That's a lot of professionals taking every precaution to protect themselves, and still getting sick. There can't be THAT many tiny tears or bungled decontaminations. Something is not adding up about the hazmat protection, and until it's definitively solved, it's pretty stupid to stand within feet of not only a sick patient but also caregivers, no matter how suited they are. The point of the suit is to protect the person *inside* while keeping the virus on the *outside* of the suit. If it's on the outside, that guy just took a huge gamble with his life (and all of ours, eventually).

This really is not about doom porn (not accusing you of saying that), it's about information junkies who love to solve a puzzle and stay ahead of developments.

They all tested negative

nypost.com...


Mt. Sinai’s other six patients tested negative, CNN said. Another patient was isolated at Bellevue Hospital last week after arriving from a trip to West Africa with symptoms. He was screened at John F. Kennedy International Airport and taken to the hospital.
But his fever cleared up within a day — and it was determined that he had not caught Ebola.

TO CLEAR UP SOME EBOLA CONFUSION ABOUT WEST AFRICA:

Some of the patients in NYC had all recently been to CAPE VERDE.

While considered part of West Africa it is several hundred miles off the coast ,and several hundred/thousands more from the Ebola stricken areas. I think people are reading West Africa in the news and rushing to the hospital at first sign of illness paranoid they have Ebola. West Africa is HUGE and makes up 15 "states".

Not one person who has been tested, either in Columbus or NYC has actually come into contact with person or persons who have symptomatic Ebola.

The Media is rushing these stories for page views and television viewers, that's it. Panic breeds revenue.

Ok. Found it. Most of it anyway:




First, this outbreak is moving faster than our efforts to control it. 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. As I said before, this meeting must mark a turning point in the outbreak response.

In addition, the outbreak is affecting a large number of doctors, nurses, and other health care workers, one of the most essential resources for containing an outbreak. To date, more than 60 health care workers have lost their lives in helping others. Some international staff are infected. These tragic infections and deaths significantly erode response capacity.

Second, the situation in West Africa is of international concern and must receive urgent priority for decisive action at national and international levels. Experiences in Africa over nearly four decades tell us clearly that, when well managed, an Ebola outbreak can be stopped.

This is not an airborne virus. Transmission requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, also after death. Apart from this specific situation, the general public is not at high risk of infection by the Ebola virus.

At the same time, it would be extremely unwise for national authorities and the international community to allow an Ebola virus to circulate widely and over a long period of time in human populations.

Constant mutation and adaptation are the survival mechanisms of viruses and other microbes. We must not give this virus opportunities to deliver more surprises.

Third, this is not just a medical or public health problem. It is a social problem. Deep-seated beliefs and cultural practices are a significant cause of further spread and a significant barrier to rapid and effective containment. This social dimension must also be addressed as an integral part of the overall response.

Fourth, in some areas, chains of transmission have moved underground. They are invisible. They are not being reported. Because of the high fatality rate, many people in affected areas associate isolation wards with a sure death sentence, and prefer to care for loved ones in homes or seek assistance from traditional healers.

I reported on this at the link below a few days ago. I had no idea that they'd remove the text of the speech. That's very strange indeed.
