Karsiah said he has not seen his father since he was three years old, after his mother fled with him from civil war in Africa. The senior Duncan flew to the United States last month to rekindle his relationship with Karsiah and his mother.
On Tuesday evening — 16 years after their last visit — Karsiah drove to Presbyterian Hospital hoping to peer through a glass panel inside the isolation unit where his father is undergoing treatment.
Ebola or the effects of the Corexit gulf of Mexico oil dispersant poisons?
Check out link here for what Dr Susan Shaw says rwgarding Corexit.....very similar symptoms to Ebola..
All videos come up as an error.
Corexit caused internal bleeding apparently.
Think food chains.
I would like to share sometgingvthat I have just realised......well realised may not be the right word but maybe a coincidence.
Toxicologists: Corexit “Ruptures Red Blood Cells, Causes Internal Bleeding”, “Allows Crude Oil To Penetrate “Into The Cells” and “Every Organ System”
Posted on July 9, 2010 by WashingtonsBlog
As I have previously noted, Corexit is toxic, is less effective than other dispersants, and is actually worsening the damage caused by the oil spill.
Now, two toxicologists are saying that Corexit is much more harmful to human health and marine life than we’ve been told.
Specifically Gulf toxicologist Dr. Susan Shaw – Founder and Director of the Marine Environmental Research Institute – dove into the oil spill to examine the chemicals present.
Dr. Shaw told CNN:
If I can tell you what happens — because I was in the oil — to people…
Shrimpers throwing their nets into water… [then] water from the nets splashed on his skin. …
[He experienced a] headache that lasted 3 weeks… heart palpitations… muscle spasms… bleeding from the rectum…
And that’s what that Corexit does, it ruptures red blood cells, causes internal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage. …
This stuff is so toxic combined… not the oil or dispersants alone. …
Very, very toxic and goes right through skin.
The reason this is so toxic is because of these solvents [from dispersant] thatpenetrate the skin of anything that’s going through the dispersed oil takes the oil into the cells — takes the oil into the organs… and this stuff is toxic to every organ system in the body. …
Similarly, marine biologist and toxicologist Dr. Chris Pincetich – who has an extensive background in testing the affects of chemicals on fish – says that Corexit disrupts cell membranes.
He also explains that EPA toxicity testing for Corexit is woefully inadequate, since EPA testing for mortality usually only requires a 96-hour time frame. His doctoral research found that fish that were alive at 96 hours after exposure to pesticide were dead at two weeks, so the chemicals were considered non-lethal for the purposes of the test.
Drs. Shaw and Pincetich are wildlife conservationists. But even industry scientists working forExxon and the manufacturer of Corexit itself admit that the stuff is toxic.
Now if you take into account the symptoms of Corexit and then take into account the symptoms of Ebola it seems quite a coincidence.
COREXIT used as a poison to create this Ebola outbreak?
Consumption of corexit laced food would cause similar symptoms perhaps????
Just a thought.
I know I may be wrong ok just thinking out loud.

I find it implausible that it spreads mainly by blood, urine, and semen. Doctor's and Healthcare workers don't just go touching other patients blood and urine, especially in these "ebola isolation hospitals" where they are taking precautions and still getting infected. I doubt all the nurses are having sex with Ebola patients in their off time.
I think its being spread into the air more easily then they are admitting.
OR it is being spread through sweat and it's absorbed through the skin just by touching something someone else touched, but even that likely wouldn't explain why so many healthcare workers are getting it, especially trained doctors.
Which makes CDC being deceptive on it's transmission route. IMO.
The Flu Is Contagious
Most healthy adults may be able to infect other people beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Children may pass the virus for longer than 7 days. Symptoms start 1 to 4 days after the virus enters the body. That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those persons may still spread the virus to others.

The virus lives on because it is slow to spread and quick to kill. By the time you realize who is infected, it has already moved on and multiplied in others.
Just wait til flu season hits and hospitals are overwhelmed with thousands believing they got infected. The healthcare system will be brought to it's knees as national panic takes hold. Then with everyone suspecting every else of being a carrier or infected, the disease will spread like fire. But the government talking heads will say nothing is wrong, move along, nothing here to see.
Next will come regional quarantines separating States or groups of States from each other, then counties and then communities. Civil unrest will follow with chaos breaking down governmental controls.
Next the virus and others like it will explode into the population and the final death knell of what was left of civilization will fallow, and then everyone is on there own. Infrastructure will collapse. No electricity, no food stores, no medicines. Starvation and lawlessness will come quickly and further pestilence will follow. In the end small groups of people fighting to live another day will be all that is left...
Oh, wait... That was "The Walking Dead." Never mind.

My friends niece just returned from Sierra Leone the other day. She is a health care worker that has been over there since the start of this thing. She said that it's 5 to 10 times as bad as our media is saying. I thought it was twice as bad. Anyway, she also said that they are just putting people down who have it. Said that it's pretty much a 0% chance that they will survive if it isn't caught as soon as the symptoms arrive. If they are too far gone they just kill them. If that's true than this is way worse than they are telling us.
In September 2007, similar expeditions to active mines in Gabon and Uganda found solid evidence of reservoirs of Marburg in cave-dwelling Egyptian fruit bats. The Ugandan mines both had colonies of the same species of African fruit bats that colonize Kitum Cave, suggesting that the long-sought vector at Kitum was indeed the bats and their guano. The study was conducted after two mine workers contracted Marburg in August 2007, both without being bitten by any bats, suggesting the virus may be propagated through inhalation of powdered guano.
