so far, the only american citizens who have gotten this virus, are health care workers, treating people sick with ebola...

Still the bottom line..

If you sneeze or cough on anyone when sick most of the time you get them sick, no matter what the illness is...

I am missing the point on this one...

People should have had enough common sense to know if you get sneezed on from a sick person you get sick...

Are people really this damn stupid?

No, ebola, is not airborne..

Looks like it about time for me to take my leave from ats again...

I really wish more people had common sense in the world...

Way to many negative people on this forum, waiting for the apocalypse man, thinking it will be exciting, yet having no clue, that in the end they will more then likely not survive..

Go figure man.

But Obama said.....



On Saturday--one day after a bus that had departed from the Pentagon was quarantined on Capitol Hill in an Ebola false alarm--President Barack Obama issued a video message to Americans telling them that "you cannot get it [Ebola] from just riding on a plane or a bus."

Obama-Ebola


Opps !!

It took a special 27 person team to figure that one out?


No it took 27 people to vote on whether or not to tell the public the truth.

Peace


You think they have told you the truth now?

Which is the greater threat to humanity, Ebola, or politics?

We've known tgis since day one. It's spready via bodily fluud. A droplet of bodily fluid is still bodily fluid.

It might interest you to look closely at the word droplet for a moment, and cogitate upon it.

Its in the first four letters. Basically, a droplet does not go hither and thither throughout the atmosphere at a whim, but makes its way to earth, has too much mass to stay aloft on a breeze. Airborne viruses however do not have as much mass, and can make their way around in a much more comprehensive fashion, buffeted by the movement of the atmosphere.



While I mostly agree, there are rare incidents of fish or frogs raining down. And not-so-rare incidents of large things being sucked up into funnel clouds and deposited miles away. Not to be all gloom-n-doom, but weather does some really bizarre stuff with items that are much, much heavier than an Ebola viron. Heck, a tumbleweed can dance down a street on a windy day.

I get the eebie-geebies when the authorities use absolutes like 'it can't' or 'it doesn't' about serious stuff like Ebola.

thank God we still can't get it on the bus, that's why I sold my car and am now only using public transit./sarc

Sneeze droplets only travel 3 feet?

Not according to MIT. Why do the CDC, Obama and the democrats deniers hate science so much?




Droplets are connected. Using high-speed imaging of coughs and sneezes, as well as laboratory simulations and mathematical modeling, the researchers came up with a new measure of the sneeze and its trajectory. The droplets form a gas cloud, they found — a “multiphase turbulent buoyant cloud” which “mixes with surrounding air before its payload of liquid droplets falls out, evaporates into solid residues, or both.”

Because the droplets are in a cloud, they stay suspended and travel further — particularly smaller ones, which travel up to 200 times farther than previously estimated. They can thus penetrate the room and ventilation systems more insidiously. “When you cough or sneeze, you see the droplets, or feel them if someone sneezes on you,” says Bush. “But you don’t see the cloud, the invisible gas phase.
...



The influence of this gas cloud is to extend the range of the individual droplets, particularly the small ones.” “You can have ventilation contamination in a much more direct way than we would have expected originally,” says Bourouiba. The researchers suggest that architects and engineers may want to reexamine the design of workplaces and hospitals — and air circulation on airplanes — to reduce the chance that airborne pathogens will transmitted among people.

I am not sure but I think they have known this, even if they have not announced it explicitly.

I think by airborne, they mean that it can travel greater distances, not necessarily in a droplet.



AIRBORNE = Virus travels encased in smaller particlulates through the air / less heavy / trajectory is further.

AEROSOL = Virus travels encased in fluid droplets through the air / heavier / trajectory is shorter.

Common denominator = AIR

It's all due to the distance "snot" can travel which may travel further than originally thought.

Found a release from a company in Maryland who appears to be preparing to make some money from the "Deadly Outbreak" (their words).

Now, could dust or pollen that came in contact with a sneeze help to transfer it farther. When you are in a bus on a hot humid day, would the virus be transferred in the humidity of the air?

I can think of a lot of situations where it might possibly travel farther, but of course the CDC would deny all of them.

i pointed that out in the nurses thread, about how they handle waste water and the hospitals are not set up to handle the long term quarantine of people.

they need to get on the ball.

Pretty clear we're being fed mixed messages about the mode of transmission.

I clearly recall being reassured by some 'expert' or other on my TV set to not be alarmed as Ebola is only transmissible through bodily fluids, like HIV AIDS.

The association with AIDS was stressed a lot, and now we know it's not like that.
