Thankyou! I thought I was the only one who noticed that any other time the results take a while, this guy....2 hours. I mean come on, either he doesn't have it and they found out abnormally quick or they're covering their behinds out of panic.

If I was a prisoner in that jail and found out he had Ebola, the rest of the inmates and I would be making a stand right about now.

If "The Plan" is to subcontract out the cleanup of hazardous materials during an outbreak and epidemic, we are all in deep $#@!.



it makes me all comfy inside to know that they are taking bids on a bio cleanup instead of using people from the cdc

I think he was arrested overnight, maybe early morning hours. So less than 12 hours probably. Still a whole lot less time than the DC cases (at least one of them). Weird. Very.

Wow. Caught that too. And so nonchalantly.

Maybe to distract from the Dallas case and make some people with shorter-term memories forget what a huge FUBAR has gone on there in TX?


Yes their handling of it was and is atrocious. If it's any measure of the readiness of officials there, and at the federal level, I seriously hope we don't have any meaningful outbreak of Ebola in the USA because it looks like we're woefully unprepared.

That's a possibility but I agree, it doesn't sit well.

I hope this all gets resumed soon, I hope my family and I never have to enact our Doomsday Plan.

Thank you for posting this thread, it has been an amazing well of information!

I believe the next thing to happen if this begins to spread, Ebola Vaccines, the stocks are up the doom is up, the media is hiding something.

I am so hopeful that this just sizzles out. We don't need any more problems in this country.

Star for you OP!

This thread, the megathread from way back in early August, has a ton of info too about ebola in general despite its title. I think there was another one as well.

The regular labs were "normal". The results of the definitive test done by CDC to determine the presence of the virus will be in later tonight.

insane, so then why are they disinfecting things he came in contact with, why clean up the apartment if you cannot catch it off a surface?

They are so shifty

The possible ebola case in Utah still outstanding.


A patient with Ebola-like symptoms remains hospitalized in Salt Lake City. Primary Children’s Hospital officials say it is unlikely that the person has the virus but they are taking precautionary measures. Officials say the patient had traveled to a country in Africa that does not currently have an Ebola outbreak but the patient began to develop symptoms consistent with the virus. However, after getting additional information, doctors made an alternative diagnosis and they say the possibility of Ebola infection is “extremely remote.”

how early will it show up in tests?
she came in contact with duncan a few days ago so she is only a few days into the incubation period, if she has it

I heard at least twenty-one days after contact, but I don't know about how soon you can catch it, last night someone said up to 90 day incubation period, that was the first I ever heard of that length of time

I remember reading them saying they tested the paramedics hat took him to he er and their tests were negative. Why wouldn't they throw a parade for her negative test results???

Thank you! Damn work calls!

But yet they made the call that they were "certain" he did not have it. She said that at least twice that I heard.

a reply to: stellawayten

The paramedics in Dallas? It's too soon to test them. They won't know for a while if they got infected. I don't think the tests work until that magical 21 days or if they show symptoms sooner, which is the problem, or a big part of it?

Ebola's incubation period is typically in the range of 2 to 21 days. Actually, 21 days is the 99th percentile mark for cases. One percent of people may take longer but the graphs for incubation range max out at 25 days.

(right-click image to view it bigger.) Source: CDC, from Estimating the Future Number of Cases in the Ebola Epidemic — Liberia and Sierra Leone, 2014–2015, Appendix 2

I don't think testing would show much until the virus has multiplied enough to show up. That could happen before the patient becomes symptomatic but typically they will wait until someone shows symptoms before they test.

Another factor is that if regular lab tests for leukocytes come back normal (indicating the body's not fighting an infection) then an Ebola test is probably pointless as its levels would still be too low. Just my opinion. Well okay, my wife's opinion, to be honest.
She worked in health care in hospitals for about 40 years and is fairly well versed in lab tests.
