I agree--a hospital is akin to a petri dish, as are MDs' offices. Worse, the presenting symptoms (that Doctors Without Borders have noted in the current outbreak) could be easily confused with a GI upset, from food poisoning to a virus.
When influenza hits, I should think that a diagnosis would be even MORE difficult.
A patient could be admitted for one thing, say, dehydration, and every health care giver, including admissions clerks, would potentially (probably) be exposed. I've seen patients admitted for the flu!
It's easy to see how Ebola could spread in a hospital. I'm hoping that a super fast, super accurate diagnostic test becomes available.

Now THAT would be useful.

"True, most blame the lack of hygiene, lack of medical facilities and religious practices - but truth is, Ebola spreads best in hospital settings. Always has."

So do MRSA infections and other communicable diseases, that being said I would rather contract said virus and have the luxury of being treated in a first world nations hospital ward than the alternative which would be some makeshift mud hut triage line in the middle of nowhere with 1 Doctor to 100 patients and poor or even non existent access to the proper medicine. Not to mention all those flies and other assorted insects hopping all over the top of the poor souls, causing other various infections plus who knows what else.

I imagine dirty needles and unsafe medical practise's did indeed contribute to the spread of HIV in the beginning but now its definitely more down to poor sex education, poverty, and the religious implications involved with wearing a condom.

whats really going on with ebola is this:

Africa Population to double by 2050 (2.4 Billion People)
www.telegraph.co.uk...

What they're doing about it:
Bill gates- donating money to Population Council (Eugenics Council) Bill Gates Foundation (Connected with Lucis Trust that includes the Rockefellers and Warren Buffet) and what they have been doing with Ebola and other Vaccines to prevent Global Warming PSEC (30GigaTons of CO2)/ Over populating (TED Convention). Theyre Currently doing this in Africa.

no this is what happens,,

"“The meeting started off well,” one resident who was present at the talks told the Guardian. “The traditional chiefs welcomed the delegation with 10 kola nuts as a traditional greeting. It was afterwards that some youths came out and started stoning them. They dragged some of them away, and damaged their vehicles.”

"Why the brutal murder of several Ebola workers may hint at more violence to come"

keep up the dis info it seems to be working,,,

Something relevant, as mentioned in another thread:



Identifying the regions where wild animal populations could transmit the Ebola virus should help with efforts to prepare at-risk areas for future outbreaks.



Image Large regions of West and Central Africa (red) have the right environmental conditions for Ebola infection in wild animals

As you can see, this overlaps past and current outbreaks to a great extent and gices credence to the notion that this could become a recurring problem.


The new map reveals that large swathes of Central and West Africa appear to have the right environmental conditions for Ebola infection to occur in non-human species.

Furthermore, when the analysis was repeated without using data about the on-going outbreak, an area deemed to be at risk was still within 5 kilometres of the village thought to the origin of the current outbreak.

This ‘at-risk area’ spans 22 countries and is inhabited by 22 million people. It should be stressed that this is not necessarily the size of the population at risk of getting infected with Ebola virus; rather, it represents the population that lives within the area estimated to be suitable for transmission in animals. Once an outbreak has started, transmission from human-to-human could easily spread the virus away from the source.


Epidemiology: Mapping Ebola in wild animals for better disease control

All of which mirrors much of what you've said.

Drew the Ebola virus? What exactly did you see, what was drawn in the sand? How? And by whom?

Maybe on a local basis, but if those in charge do not want this all over the globe, then a lack of quarantine is ridiculous.

How do you quarantine migratory wild animals and bats? For example, the map below outlines the range of the fruit bat that carries Ebola. Do you recommend napalming and carpet bombing the entire area? 'Cuz that's about all that might take care of the Ebola problem.

Actually, it could - and likely will. Ebola already is an animal-borne disease, carried by fruit bats and able to infect all kinds of animals from pigs to antelope, monkeys, apes, dogs and more. Once this new mutated human-Ebola gets loose in the wild, we won't be able to get it out. It will bounce back and forth between animals and people with regularity - much more often than standard Ebola. It will keep popping up just as the warnings say - "spreading as routinely as malaria or the flu."

My sympathy goes out to the troops that will be forced to attempt to contain the virus.

That's one fight I imagine they will lose eveytime considering they just don't have the weapons in there arsenal to fight that particular beast.

Thats a good point you brought up not all western medicine or procudures are always the best plus since ebola has become an airborne virus via snot and body fluids no matter how much you lock down a city all it takes is a couple of sneezes and rampant ebola infected isis prostitues to spread it this is a disease that should of gotten alot more attention from the get go but because of unforseen (lazy or agenda) reasons we now have something that is beyond normal control plus who knows how many countries literally sent people in to get samples so who knows how many countries now have weaponized ebola...a reply to: soficrow

Could be a dry run for planned depopulation every where. I have been seeing a lot of chem trail jets lately. Always with a fighter following behind, maybe to ensure they follow orders.....

Define 'forever'


If that was, for example, until the virus wiped out humanity in 2025.. then yes..

That or at least until BioWMD research gets the boot


Jokes aside, we face an increasingly serious situation.

Well it's possible a cure or vaccine could be found. Let's hope so.

Unfortunately, they can't just pop down to the local grocery and buy a couple t bones or a pizza. If bat is all there is to eat, most people will eat bat. Honestly it's probably way more wholesome than most of what passes for food in the west (fast food):have you ever seen a chicken farm? If you have you won't think this is so bad.
