I don't watch T.V, so, did you get a sense that they were trying to down play the photo, defuse it for fear of public panic, or so shocked themselves that they were speechless. Personally I was somewhat speechless, sorta took my breath away.

So does that mean that the story about him vomiting out doors was made up? Oh that's just icing on the cake. So you guys are up in arms about something that might have happened?

See that photo of the guys supposedly cleaning it up? Wouldn't they be in protective gear? Wouldn't the clean up be supervised or even enacted by the CDC? Those guys are probably just doing routine maintenance having nothing to do with the patient. How do we even know it's his apartment complex?

This is why I don't go with what if scenarios. This part is probably not even true and here someone is presenting it as fact and projecting it into a pandemic in the bargain. reply to: butcherguy






Our local news is reporting he vomited outside. Then Fox news said the same thing. I don't know if it's true but the power washing makes it seem real.

So in your clear head....
Vomit that came from a ebola victim, lying in front of an inhabited apartment building is NOT an infectious hazard?


i didnt say that

If you followed the exchanges here, you commending the clear thinking of the other poster does say that.

ok, people keep talking about "Paitent Z" He came into contact with 18 people, on a piece of paper, make a circle, make 18 circles around it, and around the 18 make 18 more circles, and so on and so forth, this can get out of hand real quick.

I heard people in Dallas are almost freaking out.

What about the people he was in contact with on the air planes? He had at least one lay-over, or two. Not good people.

My advice, get enough stuff to eat and drink for at least a month and a half, for you and yours. And be ready to stay in place for awhile.

Not trying to be a fear-monger, just realistic.

Godspeed my friends.

maybe ebola dude vomited on the other side of the building..

since everyone likes to post what ifs i will as well

what if this is the north entrance and ebola dude threw up at the south entrance?
what if the south entrance is 100% wrapped in plastic with medical professionals in haz mat suits cleaning it properly?
what if this is just regular scheduled clean up on the north entrance sidewalk?


see how that works


Then the news would have taken pictures of that to make a article and broadcast.

I agree.
Circumstantial evidence certainly makes that appear to be what happened, but there are people that think the wash down in that particular spot was just regular pressure washer maintenance.

yeah, ok....lets be completely trusting of the news outlets

the news media would never post a sensationalist picture with a sensationalist story would they?
who needs ratings/viewers?

do retractions exist only when an honest mistake is made?

i didnt say for a fact it was regular cleaning....i said that is one reason why they would pressure wash?

are they cleaning on and around the exact spot he puked?

how do we know he puked right there?

how big is the complex? how many entrances are there?

maybe he puked 5 entrances and 200 feet away........

i dont know for sure. i just choose not to jump to conclusions and believe all the fear mongering....


by now we all know that ebola victims are not contagious if they are not showing symptoms.
we all know by now that duncan was not showing symptoms when he was on the flight yet people are still asking 'what about the people he had contact with at the airport'

The corporate heads of United airlines thought it prudent to at least notify the other passengers.
www.nbcnews.com...


United Airlines, which flew Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan on two of the three flights that brought him to the U.S. last month, is trying to notify as many as 400 people who may have been on Duncan's flights, referring them to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,


Better safe than sorry..aye.

www.nytimes.com...

Mr. Duncan flew to Dulles International Airport, near Washington, on Sept. 20 on United Flight 951, and then on to Dallas-Fort Worth on Flight 822, the airline confirmed.

Four days later, on Sept. 24, Mr. Duncan told doctors, he started to get sick

--------------------------------

im sure people will still ask about all the people he had contact wtth on the plane or at the airport(s)

well hell yes.....


edit*
from your link

the airline told NBC News on Thursday. United said it doesn't believe any fellows passengers are at risk but that it was taking the move out of an abundance of caution.

CYA my friend
edit on 2-10-2014 by CardiffGiant because: (no reason given)


edit again*

from your link

Medical authorities said Duncan, 42, wasn't showing symptoms while he was flying, agreeing with United that there was virtually no risk to fellow fliers.

and before you pick up on 'virtually'.........again, CYA

Your certain that he wasn't showing symptoms? That's a relief, because now the CDC isn't even 100% sure that he wasn't contagious prior to arriving. Stating, and I quote: "We cannot be 100% certain that he was not contagious while in flight, but the risk of infection would still remain very low." which has since been pulled from the CNN website and replaced with Ebola Fast Facts.

They go to the hospital because they are very ill. So no . No one who gets this is going to willy nilly spread it around.

Once they exhibit symptoms, yah. What about during the 21 days before symptoms. How do they keep them from going anywhere before the 21 days are up? They are "monitored", not quarantined… right?

Don't tell me they are not infectious before they show it, thats the "Calm down" public announcement. I don't believe the chances of transmitting Ebola are 0 until becoming symptomatic.

I also know the bombs are landing in Syria, not on Isis. If you get me.

There it is. They are quarantining everyone and everything along his entire route.

Theres your sign that Ebola transmission is more than 0 before symptoms show.

You are boots (or heels) on the ground down there, as it were, lol.
