Why the need to write a story? Did a six year old step in the vomit? Did said child then infect the whole first grade? Why not stick with things that really happened. a reply to: butcherguy


Do you have any clue what happened to the vomit?
I was presenting a possibility to a person that seems to be in denial that this guy could have infected others.

I'm astonished that CDC are struggling to deal effectively with just one confirmed case. ONE case! Incompetence or something else? It's like they want this thing to spread.

The spokesperson said it wasn't in the FD report so it must a story someone made up. How much faith do you have in reporting by workers there?

No I don't knows what happened to the vomit. Neither do you. This is why I'm not including it in any what if scenarios. I'm not in denial. I present undisputed facts. I don't deal with what ifs. I also don't try and spread fear or dooms day prophecies into the situation.
I do however understand the tactic of claiming I'm in denial. That's a ploy that's been used many times before you. a reply to: butcherguy

Not sure who to believe.
CDC? PD...FD...EMTs... local resident that called them because he was puking?

Do you think that the CDC or DHS ever thought about 'what if' scenarios?
Do you think that they should do that?

The fact that the girlfriend of the infected patient hasn't even been advised on how to deal with the infected bedsheets speaks volumes. One confirmed patient, they are not fit for purpose. (As a Brit I assume CDC take control over such a dangerous viral outbreak)

You should check into CNN.
I've been watching on and off all morning and I'm losing confidence in the medical system
News anchors have been pointing out the gaps in the care for the family that has been quarantined .
No one even going in to clean the home that they're isolated in.
Apparently they did give the woman a bottle of bleach....

I love how the guy says 'not in report". Maybe go back and talk with the squad and make sure of the details.

This looks really bad to those who have and ounce of common sense. A lot of high paid screw ups.

It was reported that the CDC said they would send contractors to get the materials at the house.

Contractors. I imagine they will pick up the stuff and throw it into the nearest dumpster and submit a large bill.

Oh yeah, I know what happened to the vomit!



It got power-washed off of the sidewalk and into the parking lot, then that poor woman stepped in it!

HD Chopper 8 caught this image of crews cleaning the sidewalk outside the Ivy Apartments, where the Ebola patient was staying before being taken to the hospital.

Read up on how Ebola spreads. It's not contagious before symptoms appear. Incubation is anywhere from two days to twenty one days with four days being the average. It's not contagious during incubation. The medical experts know this and that is why no one is panicking about who he may have been in contact with during his flight. By the time it is contagious the patient is visibly sick. Very sick very quickly prohibiting travel except to an emergency room. eply to: SpaDe_



I have read plenty on Ebola and much of what you are stating as fact is anything but. The fact that incubation in 4 days is the most common alone says that this man was most likely contagious with mild symptoms upon arrival to the US. You don't go from perfect health to immediate convulsions with this virus, there is a period of mild symptoms which rapidly progress much like the onset of the flu.

The "experts" have also told us on multiple occasions that it was contained and he only came in contact with a handful of people, which we now know is not true, so I won't put much stock in what the "experts" are feeding us at this point.

The vomit is going down a drain.

Look at those guys 'cleaning' the area

All of those droplets from the power sprayer are spread through the air.
Shocked that the workers aren't wearing goggles.

There's little chance they didn't get infected since the virus lives up to 10 days on solid surfaces. How many did the interact with and are going to interact with? All this water that goes down the drain is contaminated, too.

Sunlight kills it. They are probably safe.


www.cnn.com...

See the question about the virus living on surfaces. In a perfect environment in a lab it was six days. Out on the lawn it would be much shorter.

God, I hope she didn't follow through and lick her fingers while turning the page of a newspaper after she took her shoes off.

a reply to: drwill I know from using my power washer how much gunk gets sprayed everywhere.

That poor woman walking by seems oblivious to the danger, why wasn't the area sealed off from the public before a proper clean up? Crazy.
Why wasn't the clean up crew kitted out with protective gear? It seems they really do want this to spread.

I'm having doubts that the photo is genuine, in terms of it being the actual vomit from the Ebola patient. Only due to the hap hazzard way it was undertaken.
