The WHO thinks it may be. Repeat after me: THEY ARE NOT SURE.

Thanks. Reading...


Really?

And that is why they have already identified it as the Zaire strain...but they are not sure???


I know you guys think you are doing something good in this thread...but all you are really doing is confusing yourself and others. You are filling your heads with false information, misinformation, and just all around garbage.

Stick with the facts...not internet "researchers" misguided statements.

Just keep spinning to keep that doom porn going.

Maybe I'll take a different approach.

We are all going to die, the Ebola is going to get us all....is that better?


If you think this thread is doom porn, why are you reading it?

Better yet, why not contribute something meaningful that can be reasonably debated and discussed?

So far, all I've seen you do is complain.

There is a material difference between 'firm' answers and 'exhaustive' answers. Your claim that we know all there is about modes of transmission is simply false.

I would like to politely request that you stop saying "doom porn." We heard you the first 100 times.

For the hundreth time in this thread, this is ATS. In this thread, we are discussing the Atlanta transports in particular and related items of interest. Many of us here are from Atlanta and are trying to both understand and report on news about this and do some crowdsourcing and to have this for later reference. You seriously harshing that mellow.

If you don't like how the thread is going, move on and stop trying to derail it. You don't have to post here. Or read this "doom porn" you are so concerned about.

I dislike misinformation...I dislike people actively trying to mislead people...I dislike people trying to cause fear and panic.

Here is something meaningful I can contribute.

www.who.int...
www.webmd.com...

Those are what we call facts...not baseless speculation about this being a new super powerful airborn strain that will kill everybody in the world.

Just because I am calling out all the misinformation and BS that is littered in this thread, doesn't mean I'm complaining. I think you are just mad that some people are coming in this thread and not letting you get away with posting absolute non-sense just to attempt to spread fear.

Very concise and helpful post to a baffling situation. This variant seems to have a whole new set of "rules."


What "variant"?

This isn't a new strain, they have already identified the strain and it isn't new.

So please tell me, why would the same strain have a new set of rules?


This outbreak is a "variant" of other past outbreaks. It is different because it has not died out quickly like other outbreaks of the same strain. No one said it's a new strain. Calm down.


Ummmm...what?

So this Ebola virus is a variant of other viruses...but it isn't a new strain???

This is the type of misinformation this thread has produced.


var·i·ant
ˈve(ə)rēənt/
noun
noun: variant; plural noun: variants

a form or version of something that differs in some respect from other forms of the same thing or from a standard.


ALSO:

Reading comprehension is the ability to read text, process it and understand its meaning. An individual's ability to comprehend text is influenced by their traits and skills, one of which is the ability to make inferences. If word recognition is difficult, students use too much of their processing capacity to read individual words, which interferes with their ability to comprehend what is read. There are a number of approaches to improve reading comprehension, including improving one's vocabulary and reading strategies.

Spain to repatriate priest diagnosed with Ebola


(Reuters) - Spain is arranging for the repatriation of an elderly Spanish Catholic priest working in West Africa who has tested positive for the Ebola virus, the health ministry said on Tuesday.

Miguel Pajares, 75, had been working as a missionary in Liberia when he tested positive for Ebola at a hospital in the capital Monrovia. Spanish authorities are organizing his repatriation in line with World Health Organization procedures, the health ministry official said. Pajares, the first Spaniard to be detected with Ebola, belongs to the Madrid-based, non-profit organization Juan Ciudad and the Hospital Order of San Juan de Dios, which had requested the priest's urgent transfer to Spain earlier on Tuesday.

Oh lawd. Get ready for way more cases in Nigeria than just the 8 so far:

Hospital acknowledges they did not immediately quarantine Ebola patient.


LAGOS, Nigeria — Nigerian health authorities acknowledged Tuesday that they did not immediately quarantine a sick airline passenger who later died of Ebola, announcing that eight health workers who had direct contact with him were now in isolation with symptoms of the disease.

Initially authorities told reporters that the risk of any exposure to others was minimal because Sawyer was whisked into isolation after arriving at the airport with symptoms of Ebola.

But Lagos state health commissioner Jide Idris said Tuesday that the nature of his disease “was not known” the first day, and only after further investigation did they suspect Ebola.
Sawyer’s sister had died in Liberia from the disease, which has no proven cure or treatment.

“They went back to the history and they were like ‘Oh, this is Liberia,' and that’s why he was put into isolation,” he told reporters. “So even in that window period it was possible that some of these people got infected.”

An entire day not in quarantine. Yes, but medical professionals always tell the truth and never make mistakes. Especially when the patient lies about where he's been! [/sarcasm] And how many supplies used on him were then treated normally? Yikes.

He was caring for his sister. He got it. Outbreaks have been prevalent since, what, March? And they are trying to say it was not known? Does this go to people trying to hide it? From even healthcare workers?

Yeah, I don't get how people who are at the greatest risk for getting the disease----like medical workers in Africa-----are so complacent and nonchalant about flu symptoms. Kind of makes you wonder about how medical workers in first-world countries will respond to similar cases, when they're supposed to be "totally unlikely" to ever even see a case firsthand? :/

Not only not being in quarantine for a whole day. He also became belligerent when they refused to let him leave, so he pulled down his pants and peed all over as many people as he could. He KNEW he had ebola, yet still tried lying and coercing his way out of the hospital to get back home in MI for his daughter's B-day party.

People like him are evil. No better than someone who knows they have HIV, yet refuse to tell their partners and use protection.

Everyone thinking that the variants of human nature won't factor into the spread of ebola, need to rethink their position.

I hate to say it but medical training in Africa is not on par with medical training in the west.
As for nurseing staff? Training is non existant, its what you pick up on the job.

Im not saying they are dumb but when your country cant even afford basic clean water, how do you expect them to fund a world leading university? They cant, and the shortage of modern equipment will make hands of experiance in teaching hospitals poor at best.

Its why doctors volenteering from the west are so valuble.



There is a reason why the best med schools in the world are in the USA and UK and most world leading doctors are American , British or western European. We have some of the most ridgid and strict medical programs .

Ebola in New York, Ohio and Maryland?
Source
Patients isolated and tested, but so far none found with the virus

Somebody on here mentioned ohio had a potential case

I hope these people are found to be ok.

I was just with somebody who has been to New York this past week. Not worried though. She seemed to be well.

there really isn't a *firm* answer on exactly how ebola is transmitted and the time frames involved.


Yes there is...there are actually very firm answers on this.

Ebola has been researched extensively, and despite what you and others who have no medical experience say, there are firm answers on transmission.



Can you please provide us with the very firm answers on this.

Links would be quite helpful if it's possible for you to provide.

BTW ~ What is your medical experience with this virus? Have you had the opportunity to work with Ebola patients in the past?
