when will YOU go into "seclusion"? when there are 50 cases? 100 cases? 1000 cases?

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

There are 316 million people in the United States. I think it will take QUITE a bit more than 1000 cases for me to start worrying, let alone go into seclusion.

And with 316 million ... plus tens of millions of illegals or 'undocumented' people here ... it will be rather difficult to find a place of seclusion away from others.

If people start dying in the cities by ebola or a super flu or whatever, then people will come streaming out of the cities looking for places in the countryside. So if people think that their cabin in the woods will be safe and secluded .. think again. There is no getting away from people. There are too many to get away from them.

Shelter in place for us will happen when there are numerous cases in our city. Numerous ... probably meaning a dozen or so. I'm going on 'I'll know the time when it happens'. I think we'll feel it.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

how does that actually work ???

not a trick question - but how do you know [ at any given point ] you have not already had contact with an eboloa carrier ???

its not a trick question
think about it

for a hint - consider the case of mr Duncan - he had contact with 80 people pre-hospitalisation right

the point is that if you meat " patient zero " for your country - you have potential infection risk

so - 10 , 100 , 1000 is irrelevant - as ebola carriers do not have a handy lsabel

The virus was defeated a long time ago, is just that profits were not to be made from poor ebola ridden countries, so now that is plenty of trial vaccines including one that already been tested in humans with great results the greed of the manufacturers is on who hold the rights to it

There are small scale operations to make the successfull cures, and to scale them up isn't especially difficult, just expensive.

When the number of cases gets high enough that a profit can be made, the cure will be available... that's the way that the disease is "self limiting".

Never, the sooner I get it the sooner it's over for me. 60% chance I die, in which case bonus for life on this planet. Or I survive, in which case I am immune. Personally I rate my chances of survival higher than average, since I have never taken medines, particularly "anti-biotics", so I believe my immune system has had 57 years to learn how to deal with disease. In any event, Nature ALWAYS knows best what's in her best interests, so I leave it up to her to decide.

And when those city folk come to the woods, that's when all hell breaks loose.

I have no desire to shoot someone, but you better bet your ass I'll shoot on sight if this gets out of hand. I feel horrible saying that, but protecting my family is priority number one!

I would rather die living than live dying. I plan to go about my business although I will avoid crowds and wash my hands frequently. Other than that, what can we really do?

100,000 dead would get me active to be away from congested areas no less.

I was pondering the same question the other day, myself. I'm in the Healthcare industry, more supportive than hands on specifically and have a chance of being exposed too if it makes it here. We have a lot of rumors flying as to how bad it might actually be as compared to what the official stories are, as one nearby hospital has 2 in quarantine but it's not being reported. Our city is a "Cluster-#$@" of people isolated by 150 miles of desert every direction with a lot of international tourists from everywhere. I guess for me to bug out it depends on how many begin to show up with it.

We talked at length between our department that we almost think this could be a way to make everyone feel good about our government again, actually. With all the discontent right now, we are thinking they will step in at the 11th hour with a sudden "cure" like a smallpox vaccine sort of that will keep everyone safe, so we all feel good about them again. Maybe we are wrong, but just my 2 cents.

IMO - now is the time to prepare to take care of yourself and your family if you have not already done so. There are a whole bunch of reasons a person could find themselves in a situation where your stockpile of food and water at home will get you through some sort of disaster, or power outage, etc. We should all be doing that anyway.

As far as the question of when I would go into seclusion....when I see the signs of society breaking down, such as grocery store shelves not being re-stocked, riots, hospitals overrun with sick people. I would quit going to work and lock in and hope for the best.

On a brighter note - hopefully that won't happen
