WHO allows 42 days or twice the incubation period to pass before declaring an area Ebola free. Is that what you heard or was it an incubation period? The virus is still transmissible in semen for a time after a man recovers outwardly I have read.

In March 2014, the World Health Organization was notified of an outbreak of a communicable disease characterized by fever, severe diarrhea, vomiting, and a high fatality rate in Guinea. Virologic investigation identified Zaire ebolavirus (EBOV) as the causative agent. Full-length genome sequencing and phylogenetic analysis showed that EBOV from Guinea forms a separate clade in relationship to the known EBOV strains from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon. Epidemiologic investigation linked the laboratory-confirmed cases with the presumed first fatality of the outbreak in December 2013. This study demonstrates the emergence of a new EBOV strain in Guinea.
news.sciencemag.org... Although the virus belongs to the same species, Ebola-Zaire, the strain is genetically so different that it "is definitely not a dissemination of the outbreak in West Africa,” says virologist Eric Leroy of the International Centre for Medical Research of Franceville, the World Health Organization (WHO) collaborating center in Gabon that is characterizing the DRC virus.

Local Fox4 news just reported the ill woman said she lived in the Ivy Apartments. Other stories have either changed it or deleted that information completely.
I'm beginning to believe the woman does, in fact, live there.

I wonder if the Dart lady is the lady in the flip flops next to the power washer crew at Duncan's apartments? Remember her?
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - According to a statement released on Friday afternoon, two workers with Dallas Area Rapid Transit have been sent home for connections to individuals who are either carrying the Ebola virus, or have been exposed to those carrying the virus. DART is now taking additional precautions to make sure that their customers remain safe.
He was not displaying any symptoms at the time and, according to the CDC’s information, could not have transmitted the virus.
One of the DART employees is a bus operator who was on the plane with Ebola patient Amber Vinson as she traveled from Cleveland to Dallas.
Details about the second DART employee were not released. Both employees were sent home. DART stated that they will remain at home until it is determined to be safe for them to return to work. Officials with DART are remaining in contact with local, state and federal health care officials for advice on how to proceed.
i was just seeing a cloud of ebola virus in my mind. Then the other day i felt relieved because the 21 day window was up then i was deflated to learn it could actually take 21 to 70 days to know for sure.
Simple things like money and public bathrooms makes me cringe now.
