Good news:




OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An American video journalist being treated for Ebola is now free of the virus and will be released soon, the Omaha hospital where he is being treated said Tuesday.

A recent test showed Ashoka Mukpo's blood is negative for the virus, according to the Nebraska Medical Center. The test was confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mukpo will be allowed to leave the hospital's biocontainment unit Wednesday.

Where'd the virus go?

Because, traditionally, Ebola has been seen to not only not 'go away' but to instead turn the lucky victim's body into a seething hot mass of virus particles, as it took over the tissues and turned human DNA into virus RNA...

People can survive the virus, so I guess it's effectivly wiped out from their bodies.

They can survive it but doesn't it end up in bodily fluids? I know they tell survivors to abstain from sexual activities for a minimum of 90 days.

From the link I posted above:




The World Health Organization found that the virus can reside in semen for up to seven weeks after recovery

But what about menstruating survivors? What about body waste?

Brilliant question. Seriously. I haven't heard this addressed. Because it goes into the trash, the dumps, and the sewers. Hmmmm.

The WHO does say it is in breastmilk, but it doesn't mention body waste. Now, that's not to say it's not in there. Maybe they're still doing studies on it or something?
