This is serious News.. Keep on eye if this will be a news in western media..

New Delhi: The Health Ministry on Wednesday said 821 passengers were being tracked for Ebola in the country with most of them belonging to states of Maharashtra, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

"Today, 45 passengers were enrolled for follow up in their respective states through state Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme (IDSP) units. As on date, a cumulative number of 821 passengers are being tracked. Most of them are in the States of Maharashtra, Kerala and Tamil Nadu," a Health Ministry release said. IDSPs is tracking such passengers, the details of which are provided to them by the Airport Health Organisation.

The Ministry said two passengers who were admitted in RML Hospital earlier for further treatment after being tested negative for Ebola, have responded to anti-malarial treatment and are afebrile now and one of them has now been discharged. It said that 148 passengers from the affected countries have arrived at the Airports of Mumbai (30), Delhi (92), Kochi (8), Bangalore (15) and Chennai (3) in the last 24 hours. "One passenger travelling from Nigeria has been found symptomatic and quarantined at isolation facility at Delhi airport. Her report is awaited," the Ministry said.


Previous news from India concerning Ebola was dismissed by western media. The news was about 114 passengers, which fled back from infected areas and 85 of them was cleared and 16 was quarantined. You can find the threads in Pandemic forum.

It's a very real threat. India unfortunately is a bad place for something like Ebola to break out. Close quarters, overburdened hospitals, many swear or rely on "natural healers", generally poor sanitation. But, don't traditional Hindu burials involve cremation? So they could be a bit better off in that aspect, but they'd still handle the bodies. That could help curb it since Hinduism has many followers there.

Also, just wondering. They have monkeys in their cities, I think Animal Planet had a show about the officers who chase them and relocate them. Can they help spread the virus? At work so no time to research about orangutans or chimpanzees who climb buildings to steal food.

All the best. S + F

I believe they could spread the problem as these monkeys are also aggressive, thank you reminding the monkey issue.

In Africa they keep monkeys as a pet and also eat those as a bushmeat, which is considered as a one reason why the epidemic is out of control. In India they worship monkeys and some people feed them.

I'm stocking up on vit c

India is a big dirty sh!thole and with so many people in such close proximity it won't take long to spread

Not good at all

Sounds like the new miniseries The Strain to me.

Between The Strain and Contagion, is the MSM and governments ultra co-op departments subliminally telling us something?
