Oh boy this is big! 1st world hospital taking care of one ebola patient ... the buggies slip out and infect the nurse. The nurse runs around with an active fever (meaning she can spread the ebola) for a week before she's put in the hospital. This says a lot about what we are dealing with and how poorly we are dealing with it.

Hmmm....interesting, esp. in light of the conflicting reports on the supposed death of Mr. Duncan last night. Very interesting.

That's fantastic. Let's bring in more Ebola patients from Africa to Spain then.

Even if they used a robot to treat the patient somebody skipped a protocol or two...human error once again leading to infection...

Said it before. Hate sounding like a broken record. You CANNOT trust the infected.

There'll be some interesting things said about the nurse ... just watch.

New York Times: Some May Carry Ebola Without Showing Any Symptoms



Western governments and scientists have repeatedly said that Ebola carriers can only infect others if they are showing symptoms. So they need to adjust their strategies to account for potential contagion from people who aren’t showing any symptoms.

Similarly, two national experts on infectious disease transmission – both professors in the School of Public Health, Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, at the University of Illinois at Chicago – report that Ebola can be transmitted by aerosols … i.e. fluids mixed with air (footnotes omitted):...

According to American nurses, the U.S. healthcare system is woefully unprepared to handle Ebola.

We need an effort on the scale of World War 2, the Marshall Plan or the moon shot to prepare, contain and eradicate this modern plague.

This is supposed to be hard to catch without even having protocols to skip in the first place.

Yeah ... right. The R nought does NOT lie. It lies between one and four (looks like about a two in this strain). Anything above a one means it WILL spread. That means hard to catch or not ... other people are going to become infected.

There's probably still time for strict quarantines to be made effective. But, this much I will guarantee, the people our tax dollars go to, to ensure we are protected ... are failing miserably.

The thing about this case is this nurse treated the priest over a month ago... which means the incubation period is longer than 21 days! Or did they report that she has been sick for 9 or more days?

a reply to: TruthxIsxInxThexMist

The priest died on Sept 25. The nurse first had symptoms last week, on Sept. 30. So, well within the window for the normal incubation period.

ETA: Viz the posts by whatnext21 and Indigent on p. 1 of this thread for more details about the timing in this case.

He died on the 25 September.
How do you know it was over a month ago?

Or are you confusing the first patient for the second?

We need nothing less than full quarantine of any person exposed to Ebola, symptoms or not. And lock down all travel to and from aflicted zones.

Or are we just going to sit around and wait for that "Oh #!" moment when some poor soul, wholly unconnected to West Africa, healthcare in general or any air travel whatsoever - tests positive for Ebola..!!??

If I lived in Dallas right now, I'd be seriously attentive to my contacts and hygienic behavior.

I wouldn't give a rats ass if people thought I was nuts.

Prepare now. The wind is certainly blowing in the wrong direction on this thing. If this Spanish nurse can become infected in a Western hospital, who by all accounts have managed their domestic ebola case to the extreme, then Dallas is likely hosed.

Preemptively, I'll say, stick your fear mongering accusations six feet into the ground. The trend line betrays your assurances all will be ok. Stop trying to minimize the obvious and growing need for vigilance.

Prepare now or be potentially sorry later, despite what the government and bubbletube tell you.

Not the same hospital, the Carlos III hospital is supposed to be prepared to handle highly contagious disease, that's why the patients were took there.

The nurse went to her local hospital, nothing special to handle this.

Yeah, I'm confused with the first patient but it seems so are the media! Because it could be either in reality.

Let's check back on October 21st to see if they are still healthy. If they are then we may be able to celebrate.

Yes. I have a gut feeling that the virus alters human behavior making them extremely social.
