Hope this isnt the start of something worse...

Why she didn't stay over there in quarantine for 21 days??

Now she's bought here and possibly infected others... not only is she allowing herself to get infected by going to Sierra Leone, she could potentially be infecting others on the flight and here in Glasgow... soon to come to London hospital!

Just what we needed to hear with the flu season here at the same time.


I was thinking the same thing!
Finish your last shift, scrub up, then quarantine for 21 days then you can get the hell out of there, not rocket science is it. And a commercial flight as well ? Looking forward to what our leader has to say about it all.

The person is being treated at the Gartnavel hospital, that's about a mile from my house. My home city is having a strange old time of it lately, the 6 killed by a bin truck last week, now this.


All the best mate, rough times.

Might as well add it here as this thread came first.
Great, Just Great. If this worker was a Zombie you would shoot em. in fact, If someone said they were going away to work with zombies you would say... good, dont come fn back.

I cant believe there has been no quarantine measures set in place. That's a plane load of people + whoever got on the same plane behind them and everyone else this person has come into contact with who could be infected because i'm 100% sure the person with Ebola/Zombieitis didn't fly wearing a hazmat suit.

This is how pandemics get a foothold.

There's only two explanations.

'They' screwed up, made a particularly bad error because they are criminally lax with one of the most deadly viral infections currently doing the rounds of death..

Or they want it to spread.

Not sure which one i'd go for to be honest, they're both pretty damning.

I'm leaning towards the second option. I thought that more cases would magically pop up after Christmas. We couldn't have Ebola spoiling the shopping season, can we?


I still think this has the potential to turn into a full-blown pandemic. Esp. if people STILL insist on traveling over there to "help," and STILL insist on returning to the UK, States or wherever so they can spread the joy around even more.

Ebola has spread so much in West Africa becuase those countries have poor healthcare systems, poor public health and customs that help the disease spread.

Scotland, the UK nand the rest of the Western world has all the things that will prevent Ebola spreading.

A basic understanding of the disease and public health practices, should reassure the easily panicked.

Please, don't panic.

Prevent it spreading...??? If We are so good at preventing it spreading why have we facilitated in SPREADING the virus by shipping it 5000 miles to the UK in a human host.
I dont want reassured they know what the disease does, what it looks like under a Microscope, how long it takes to kill you etc.. I want reassured they know WTF they are doing in containing it. Something that's perfectly obvious they have failed to do.

1 person infects 1 person, 2 people infect 2, 4 infect 4 and so on. Any idea how quickly the numbers can reach a thousand.? In the right conditions, ie, packed trains, concerts, family gatherings over the festive period etc...a very short time indeed.

No Matter how we look at it, our Governments have failed us all big time.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not in panic mode. But I believe that we all need to be prepared should the proverbial "stuff" hit the fan.

I agree with the other poster who said they would like to know what tptb are doing to contain this. Moving a patient from Glasgow to London could be problematic. It would be best to keep this patient in place rather than transfer her to another location, thereby giving more chances for transmission.

Prevention is the key. Quarantines of all individuals traveling from the affected areas - regardless of whether they are healthcare workers or not - will help slow down the spread of this disease dramatically. For the U.S. gov't and others to withhold information about actual Ebola numbers will add to mass panic rather than control it.

Also, the U.S. gov't needs to stop disappearing Ebola patients.

I think we in the rich West have an obligation to assist other, poorer countries, in situations such as Ebola. The fact that a health worker has come back home with Ebola is very worrying for him/her. Remember this is a person who has done things that you and I would not do.

However, the health service and the public health practitioners are capable of ensuring the risk of spread is minimised. I know how it works in the UK, and I am confident in our health system.

On quarantine. We don't know what precautions have been taken already, but likely the individual concerned was self-monitoring.

Like I said. Don't panic.

Regards

Well, hopes that it didn't spread and there isn't a mass hysteria! Guessing cases like this will keep popping up until curbed in the main affected areas. It takes for it in the developed world to push for anything to be done when they become infected.

No it's okay, Jeremy Hunt has chaired a COBRA meeting tonight.

Total over reaction or do they know more than they're letting on? The decision is yours.

Friggin hell, get real people... About 3 months ago Norway's first ebola patient was treated at Ullevål hospital. Guess what, she recovered. Even more strange that at that time, I was also in that very same hospital for 2 weeks. I didnt get Ebola, nor did anybody else being treated at the same time at the same hospital.... So, just sit down a bit and start using your brains. Honestly, the igborance and fear mongering here on ATS is making me nuts...

I don't know whether it's already got air-borne, but if anybody at Heathrow (which has huge corridors, hallways and terminals , even the underground) has got infected, it's nearly impossible to track them in time, thus the infection could spread easily and then multiply very quickly to the point where we are scre*ed.
However, I am leaning towards doomporn at this point. First the aicraft, then the ferry, now the good ol' ebola case, well...seems like something is going on, maybe they are trying to conceal Russia + China deal that has been signed recently or alike...
I don't know, just seems like this could very well be a nicely done camouflage.


Btw, saying that the West has great facilities and equipment for the management of ebola virus and its patients is pretty stupid.
How many ebola-ready beds are currently in London? Ok, lets say there are some in major cities like Madrid, Paris etc... But its roughly a couple of hundred combined, thousand at best with very few trained personel/staff.
Once it actually hits, we will see how this great West can deal with it.

Irresponsible UK Government. They never praise our regular Nurse staff, yet the Prime Minister plus sent full 'Congratulations ' to this infected patient / Nurse.???? Just read, - article found on RENSE.COM - how Medical experts now say, Ebola Survivors are Immune for 10 years'.....They are not immune to a second stage of Ebola????? The whole thing is becoming a growing problem likely to be spread by Homecoming Medics..............

I simply cannot understand why health workers are being allowed to travel freely back to their home countries after working in Ebola infected areas with Ebola infected patients.

Thinking at the most basic logical level, when the extent of the problem in West Africa was realised a period of full quarantine should immediately have become a standard procedure for health workers returning from Ebola zones.

Answers need to be given about why that did not happen.

I believe there are less than 10 'ebola ready' beds in the whole of the UK....that's full quarantine beds.......
