I read somewhere that - at some point - you have to start wondering if an intense urge to go somewhere is a preliminary symptom of Ebola. LOLOL!

I'll call the CDC straight away and tell them to add that to the list of symptoms. LOL!

Bwahahahahaha....sorry...but, I mean....WHO DOESN'T LOCK THEIR APARTMENT WHEN THEY LEAVE IN NYC????

I predict that when a few more possible cases pop up in NY in the next couple of days we will see people wanting to cancel Halloween.

I would think given the time period, that if a few more *positive cases DO pop up ... meaning he def transmitted it to people... then halloween SHOULD be a concern. If he transmitted it to just ONE person, outside of his immediate circle of "contacts".... then i think there would be major cause for concern

Ive read 82 days - WHO says 49 days so it will probably change - that's how they spread it over there :


Men who have recovered from the illness can still spread the virus to their partner through their semen for up to 7 weeks after recovery. For this reason, it is important for men to avoid sexual intercourse for at least 7 weeks after recovery or to wear condoms if having sexual intercourse during 7 weeks after recovery.

Trick or treating was already a terrible idea, "hey let's go gather GMO chemicals from strangers
" "heck ya! nothing can go wrong with that scenario
"

Now we have Ebola, how dark will this path get I wonder

ACTUALLY, in a few days, anybody who gets sick AT ALL with the symptoms is a possible case... Quarantine?

Good thing the tests supposedly take less than a day, now, right? At least for advanced cases, I guess...

The extensive tests to detect small quantities is still prolly a few days, huh?

Is it me or does it seem that that part of the country is always being used as a testing ground?
It sounds like the east coast is in for a long miserable winter.


I guess it's too late to wish I was back in Cali Valley then huh? Dagnabbit! I do miss the weather though. (No I never spoke Valley Girl, but I can imitate it very well. Like, gag me with a spoon! Like, Seriously, like duh! Tell you what, you take Ebola, I'll take the 110 degree weather. (Yes I know it's usually summer time, but plan on keeping it year round.)

At least if we quarantined aid workers for 21 days - in Africa, before coming home - we would stop the most likely vectors.


If they have been in contact with Ebola patients, this would be the common sense approach.
I suspect he knew he missed a protocol and wanted to come home for US treatment.

Bull# alert!
The reality on the ground does not reflect what these reports show as they are relying on poor / redundent data gathering techniques according to Liberian officials who have grown fed up with inacurate reporting and banned unathorised journalists from writing about the crisis in their country!

would there be an attempt here to coerce Liberians from staying in liberia and not flee to western countires?
They havevnt stopped flights (or profits) but they could spread misinformation intentionally to stop people from coming here...

I'm in Eastern PA, about a half hour from Pittsburgh. My doctor referred me to a dentist here in town since I couldn't find one to take my insurance when I moved here. I went in after seeing him today to make an appointment and there, smack on the door, EBOOOOOOLA!!! In black and white, "Have you travelled to Africa recently, do you have these symptoms? blah, blah, blah, Please let the receptionist know immediately!"

Me, I would call 911 from my cell phone to reduce risking more people being infected, but that's just me.


Sounds like a note similar to the one I noticed. I wonder if my primary care doctor's office is doing the same?



It's certainly possible. I was thinking it was because dentists are exposed to blood during their work. This particular dentist is one that specializes in sedation dentistry and surgery, so they're probably exposed to more blood than most dentists. Just my guess.

Not just blood - their hands are in your mouth with all your saliva, and their face is right above your face while they work. When you cough or gag, you spray them with your saliva and phlegm. Even wearing a mask over nose and mouth, now you have sprayed their face with particles of your virus infected sputum.


Or if you have a particularly difficult extraction, lots of blood. Several years ago I had a very difficult time having a tooth pulled (wisdom?) and it had to be drilled in pieces before they took it out.

I bled like crazy afterwards. Now if that were to happen to someone w/Ebola, it wouldn't be very good.

I have a doctor's appt next month and am trying to decide if I should keep it. Now I'm not so sure. Stuff might hit the proverbian fan by then.

At the dentists, daycares, emergency rooms, etc - when someone answers "yes" to the key questions, what is the response? Do they immediately go put on a hazmat suit? Or just ask more detailed questions? At what point would they actually get concerned anough to put some distance between themselves and the respondent? What if the person has sneezed or coughed while the question/answer session was going on?

Long ago, I worked as a CNA and we had to have special training to work with people who were in a vegetative state and had multiple blood transfusions and thus were at risk (I think for Hepatitis B but it has been a long time). That alone was quite burdensome and we always worried that we might miss something, and that was just a couple of special patients, and only part of the time.

I mean really! What is the average daycare worker going to do if little Billy's dad is a doctor and has recently been out of the country, even if they say they were in Africa?. I'm guessing they are maybe being told, if they work for a chain daycare, that they should send Billy home, for the next few days, but then what? Will daycares all over the country be calling the CDC to report to a watch list or a "if this person gets sick, we could be exposed" list? The possibilities for exposure are just endless and our country and people in general are not aware, even if new policies to ask a list of questions are being implemented in some workplaces.



I've been one of those in a vegetative state (for 2 weeks) and received multiple transfusions (2). (3 if you count the fact that I had two while in the vegetative state, then 19 years later had a 2nd one. I consider the vegetative state to be one transfusion as they both occurred within a week of the other. I've been tested for AIDS, and the HEP and because last year my sister's idiot neighbor shot someone in the foot (and almost took it off), and reacting, I applied pressure with a cloth, but it still bled through to my hands, where I had a open wound. My family got on me for wanting to get tested for STDs and all the HEPs, etc... According to them, I was "overreacting." My doctor said it was smart thinking. You don't know the guy from Adam, and you don't know his medical history, it's only smart to get yourself tested to ensure you didn't contract something trying to save somebody's life.

I'll be very curious how many people Doctor Idiot exposed during his jaunt when he began to feel like crap and was throwing up and had diarrhea. I'm curious as to when he was most contagious? Before, or after he returned home? If anyone was exposed, how many people will be covered up as a "flu" or just vanish and reappear weeks later.

Anymore GLOOM AND DOOM porn out there. Maybe the sky is falling chicken little. The sun going to get us, the ebola going to get us. Always something going to get us. I heard that all the pussy cats are gathering together and they planning an invasion. They plan on teaming up with the rabbits down in the rabbit hole. This is very, very,very bad. They could take over the world. Oh and be careful of the 5 monkey's.


Yeah let's compare the literal virus to all the other craziness you just mentioned. No worries everybody, it can't possibly effect you


Crazy as a loon indeed.

After that they will cancel the elections. Then impose martial law.

A couple of questions:

If a recovered Ebola patient uses a condom, how should it be disposed of?

And what about menstruating women? If a recovered female patient was still having her period, what about that? What about other body fluids?

dont worry....thousands of flights, thousands of infected people, hundreds of tons of cargo and merchandise coming into our borders daily.....but only under a dozen infected people reported in the US...seems legit.

Because official numbers, are official....
