What happened with Ebola?

Does anybody report on it anymore?

Even Fox News shut it down - why?


Is someone missing their made up doom porn?

The reason it is no longer news is that there is nothing to report on. Or do you want constant reports like
"Today, less than 0.000001% of the USA population may have Ebola....

Ebola-infected doctor headed to US for treatment
Surgeon's expected arrival Saturday will end the US being briefly Ebola-free.


A doctor who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone is expected to be brought to the United States for treatment on Saturday. The arrival of Dr. Martin Salia to the Nebraska Medical Center will end the US being briefly Ebola-free.

A different doctor who worked with Ebola and got infected with the virus while working in West Africa was released from a New York hospital on Tuesday, in what was believed to be the last known case of Ebola in the US. That doctor, Craig Spencer, did not know he was infected when he returned last month to New York—a development that set off a huge debate about quarantines and civil liberties.
Ten people have been treated for Ebola in the US in recent months as the outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 5,000 victims in Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia.

Salia, a 44-year-old general surgeon who lives in Maryland, had been treating patients at Kissy United Methodist Hospital in Freetown. The hospital was shut down Tuesday after Salia tested positive for the virus. Salia will be the 10th person in the US to be treated for Ebola.

As Ars' science editor John Timmer explains, Ebola's "initial victims are typically immune cells, like dendritic cells and macrophages. These cells are often the body's first line of defense against pathogens, and they help alert the immune system. Once infected, these immune cells may start to express immune signaling molecules indiscriminately. This can lead to the fever and malaise that are some of the first symptoms of infection."

The Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha is one of four hospitals in the US that specialize in treating dangerous, infectious diseases.

On Tuesday, a 21-day monitoring period expired for a Maine nurse, Kaci Hickox, who defied quarantine orders in a dispute that highlighted the science, fear, hysteria, and politics surrounding a disease that has no cure but had just arrived to the United States.

For her part, Hickox said her life is now "back to normal."

"I hope that one day we as an American culture can get over this fear and can learn to show compassion instead, and we can continue to listen to the medical experts about Ebola," she said.

Liberian Thomas Duncan was the first and only patient to die in the US from Ebola, on October 8 at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Its not that relevant anymore...it achieved the momentary effect at the time as all these stories do. It was just planned hysterical importance...it did that.

Just like Fukishima, missing plane, all those schoolgirls kidnapped...see the pattern? Just like the20-oh my God the world will end in Dec-12 nonsense.

Watch the crisis stories we are oh-my-God'ing today...won't even be an important story in a month.

Seeing a pattern? Those stories are still out there without a satisfactory conclusion to any of them....they've been replaced...just as Ebola has....tomorrow? A new "crisis" will appear...and in another month....it too will be replaced....

This is the real world...and the plane's still missing. So what? Ebola? So what?

I'm happy to be a smart-ass, it was amusing to see the ridiculous fear from everyone in the mega ebola threads recently.
Every sniff of an MSM story created a new thread and it made me glad to see how free of MSM fear I am compared to many members here.
I posted a few times in the doom threads that people were being overly dramatic, and I got the expected response from the paranoid folk, anger, indignation and all the rest of it...yes, amusing, and I chuckle at how those doom mongers who fell for the MSM drama. Ridiculous, as pretty much every fear thread is for us who sit behind keyboards in the developed world.

I often see MSM stories and can't wait to see the OMGZ THE SKY IS FALLING!!! multiple threads posting every tweet and nuance from news stories as a new topic. Keep em coming, I choose to read them for the entertainment factor.
It is always amusing when the MSM drop the story and the drama queens on ATS have nothing to report on lol

The original source for most of that quote seems to have been on Forbes.com:


The Associated Press and other press outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed.


That was originally at this link:

SOURCE: Forbes.com

But if you visit that same link now, you will see Forbes has backpedaled big time:


**CORRECTION: This piece originally and inadvertently suggested that The Associated Press and other news organizations were in agreement “not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed.” I regret this misinterpretation. In fact, AP is in no agreement with other outlets regarding news coverage. AP’s own position is that it will still report some suspected cases of Ebola if they cause enough disruption, even if there’s no confirmation the person has Ebola.


It's a bit hard to tell whether it was originally a misinterpretation or not. Here are some links to what AP previously said on their blog regarding Ebola coverage advice:

AP on October 3, 2014

AP on October 17, 2014

Since the new Ebola czar has a reputation as a PR/political fixer, not a doctor or epidemiologist, it wouldn't be surprising if the 'cone of silence' came down, though.

Here's Why Ebola Is No Longer In the News

I think this is just a shining example of the rather poor level of journalism and short attention spans in the US - both among the people and the News outlets themselves - it is still being reported on here the UK, albeit at a reduced rate. Also, it is quite common for US news networks to totally ignore what is going on outside the US in favour of internal news stories.

In fact, in the last few days, the BBC ran a story about a fresh arrival of some NHS medics who have just been trained and sent to West Africa.

BBC STory from the 26th November 2014

Large BBC page dedicated to all Ebola news - updated regularly

Artilce in the UK Telegraph - 26th November

UK Health volunteers fly out to West Africa - BBC, 22nd November

UK Guardian - same story about Volunteers - 22nd November

And there are plenty more links, but I think you get my point.

'All quiet on the Western Front"

= you know something is wrong.

Anyway, good thread. Plenty of weird stuff happening where I live... for eg: Gastrolytes & Hay fever tabs out of stock in local areas... also, 3 week wait to see a Doctor....also, different ambulances being used. Saw a young man being taken out of a house in a different ambulance... it was white with a single red stripe.

also...everyone is down with hay fever issues and diarrhea...that goes away (I had that myself) and then about 3 weeks later, I had sore throat and a blister on my stomach!! ?????????????? It has dried up and has reduced in size but my Son has some on his legs now. I am not panicking too much because my blister went away... but fear is, what the hell is next?

will it come back in a different way another 3 weeks later?

I was at the doctors yesterday and noticed they had put up an alert for Ebola and a list of symptoms, I had discussed it with my doctor when it was a hot topic and decided to bring the flyer up when I was in with her, she was saying that here in Perth we have had a lot of scares that turned out to be Malaria but only a few were actually reported on and most went under the MSM radar and nothing was heard about all these suspected cases. So obviously it is still around, obviously its not as bad at this point as what some of us predicted, hopefully it stays that way because we couldn't really ask for a better outcome but clearly they are sweeping it under the rug.


yes, I have seen the same notices.... also they had a notice in the paper saying that heaps of Doctors were away doing ebola training...and then they also put in another notice to inform people that some clinics were able to diagnose and treat ebola...

strange stuff

I just came home from the doctors and I was actually looking at that sign when in there waiting, then I come home and check ATS and see you replied my post about the sign lol..

Wow really ?? Certain clinics able too treat it is new news too me that's insane! as if they would be able too keep it contained in a medical clinic, if by that you mean like medical centre like doctors surgery, I would have thought it would be something where they would respond with immediate isolation in a hospital.

im with you, strange stuff indeed!

I am also glad to read your post. Good to see others from Australia sharing what they notice.

If you see any unusual type of ambulances in your area... please share! That was when I actually felt scared.

I absolutely will! I found that really interesting about the Ambulance in your other post, can't say I have ever seen one like that, when I was talking to my Dr she basically hinted that it won't really be reported unless it has too be or if the test for Ebola comes back positive, I find that a bit strange, at first all suspected cases were reported on.

Oh also we have a nasty flu going around here in Perth right now, that's why I was at the doctors because my son developed bad Bronchitis a lower respiratory tract infection (at first she thought Pneumonia and I had too take him for a xray) they put him on 2 different types of anti biotics ($70 later, thanks big pharma) a few days ago and lots of Manuka Honey prescribed by me and he is improving thank goodness! he slept for 3 days straight it was scary, but half my daughters class has been off with this flu aswell, including the teacher, and he was totally fine and then the really bad chest y cough etc came on like 2 days in too it, usually if one is developed from a flu it doesn't start that soon with me or my kids.

Glaxo-Smith-Kline has some positive results in early testing for their vaccine.

A hard hit area has increased survival rate to 60% through keeping patients happy and only experienced nurses giving IV's. -NPR

Beyond that nothing. I think the focus now is marginalizing Putin by lowering crude oil prices....you didn't think that cheap gas was anything else did you? Hurts him more than us.....

Next crisis will surely be around the corner, ......wait for it......wait for it.

I'm kind of a coward when it comes to taking stands but I am backing you up on this...There are three things I just really don't understand here ((seriously...not just ATS))

1. Why was iot suddenly a HUMUNGOUS problem when it came to the US? I'm sorry, are West African lives worth less?

2. Why does everyone all over this country just ADORE and love to jump on every single thing and say it's the new end of the world? I mean don't get me wrong, someday something will come and end us. Could be tomorrow some megavolcano or it could be the end of the Sun billions of years from now. Nobody knows....period

But this part IS about ATS

3. Why is it we are "never supposed to trust the evil MSM" unless it coincides with our doom porn?

Michael/Trayvon? Can't trust MSM
Celebrity deaths? Can't trust MSM
Politcial Scandal? Can't trust MSM
Ebola? Crap...better switch on Fox/CNN/MSNBC whoever and get our dose!

oh well
