Yes I do, but unless hazardous materials from ebola infections are dumped in the streets the transmission to animals is still minimal.

It's breaking news on FOX but there wasn't a story yet when I saw it


If this African American nurse dies, the USA results will be 6 live / 2 die.
The two that die are African Americans.
Expect all hell to break loose if this occurs...

Oh lord please dont let Al Sharpton chime in this one!
Seriously perhaps there are subtle differences in physiology that effect morbidity?!?!

Ebola in Africa will be treated with vaccines, but no until the makers of vaccines see a way to profit from a pandemic in more affluent countries like the US.

Right now along with the 3000 DOD personnel that was send to Liberia is also a trial vaccine for the use on those that will be candidates to it.

A vaccine for ebola is to be ready within 60 days.

They also said the possibility of a hospital worker getting it here was really low. Happened first time one showed up at a hospital. I am not buying all the happy talking heads' bs. We don't know enough about this to take chances.
Mice will eat blood and bodily fluids. Ebola has been shown to survive in blood and bodily fluids for days, right. So if the waste is not disposed of properly, it could easily transmit the virus to rodents or birds. Again, I would be asking what was the protocol, was it enough, was it followed in all ways, and what was the final disposition of any items that came into contact with Mr. Duncan while he was there.

Perhaps is airborne but no in the way we may think, the reason ebola has infected people in Dallas is due to incompetence not because is easily transmittable.

It is not actually, look at the family members of Duncan.

I blame the spread right in the Dallas area more for incompetence and human error.



So you really believe the Duncan family is not infected despite no contact in days?

I agree, the spread of ebola from animals can become a possibility that is truth, I will no dismiss that, but let hope the morons in the country will not get so stupid and more sloppy that they already are within the CDC.

I said this earlier but you might have missed it. A vaccine in 2 months time would be useless. Ebola mutates too quickly to keep up with it. There are already two strands of ebola in circulation. One in west Africa and one in the Congo. In 60 days we will likely see 3 or 4 news strands (although not recorded because it will be total chaos in Africa).

We only have what it was reported yesterday by the Mayor of Dallas in fox news, when asked about the Dunca's family wellbeing, he said that they were no showing signs of infection.

He is saying its impossible to control with our sewer systems and rodents. One ebola victim taking a dump in his apartment building would be enough to infect some rodents.

Is more than just a vaccine been worked at, right now US have 3 different vaccines, while Japan have 2, Russia is working on 3 more.

I am sure that is a combination of different types of ebola.

Let hope for the better.

Got it, I see now you concern, sorry if I missed that, now the way to explain the possibilities I will have to say that you are very much right.

Is worthy of a thread bringing the issue of rodent and animal infections.

I know I'm trying to stay positive but here are the facts. They are working on known strands. They can't tell what direction this thing may mutate into. Positivity in this situation is pretty low.

On the bright side colloidal silver seems to be a reassuring find. I got some just in case

According to this chronological listing of Ebola outbreaks, most have occurred in dark-skin African nations.

REF: en.wikipedia.org...

So, you might have a point, Sirlancealot. Ebola seems to "like" certain groups more due to a lack of immune system resistance to the virus...which makes it more deadly to this group???

After all, the World Health Organization stunningly predicts that despite declaring war against EBOLA, the disease will still ramp up to cause 10,000 (!WTF!) new cases per week in Africa until it starts to die down. This indicates to me that Ebola must spread extremely easily in West Africa, despite world efforts to contain it. That entire region will need to be quarantined soon.

i really hope that's true but if 2 hospital workers got it i find it really odd that someone trapped in an apartment with him for days and then stuck there with dirty sheets, etc..... is fine? it's possible the mayor doesn't know anything and he's assuming that no news is good news.

I think people don't realize how bad these medical workers were...

Maybe it wasn't totally their fault, but that hospital is to blame.

The media has been in constant contact with his isolated friends/family.
