Stupid, ignorant, panic?

No.

Yup.

Imo, Ebola is possibly an excuse to steal resources in Northern Africa. It wouldn't surprise me if those who have Ebola were given it through prior vaccinations. Also, there's been cures for Ebola since at least 2014. Imo, a bigger concern is the return of Swine flu (H1N1), which journalist Bre Payton recently died from. The Clinton's/Deep State could have had her infected for all we know. I wouldn't be surprised if Zika pops up again too.

The outbreak is not in northern Africa.

No.

I can see where you might feel that response was excessive. Fortunately, nothing like that has happened yet. But any time a disease like this reaches a highly and densely populated area with free and rapid travel there is the potential for something very bad to happen. The fact that it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it can't or never will. One particularly virulent strain and things could change very quickly. I hope we continue to avoid that scenario.

More info on what happened

"The physician was working at a missionary hospital in the DRC and treated a severely ill patient who subsequently tested positive for Ebola, according to a government official with knowledge of the case. The physician one day later received the experimental Ebola vaccine as a post-exposure preventive measure and has been under observation for a week."

And I expect nothing less in the future.

Hurray for ATS.

Yeah. One person, who probably received the vaccine, currently asymptomatic and in isolation.

She should never have been allowed back into the US!




Ha, I got a chuckle from that.

Especially agree with the last part. I'm overkill on protocols. Should have been quarantined better before leaving.

Excuse my ignorance regarding Northern Africa. I was referring to countries North of South Africa. There has been a cure for Ebola since @ 2014 according to NBC. Please read my links in my previous post, especially the last link which describes the amount of resources in the Congo.

You maybe should read your sources:

They were the first human beings to receive an experimental drug called ZMapp. But they are not the first people to have recovered from Ebola, and good hospital care is likely more responsible for their recovery than any mysterious “serum," as the charities they work for termed it.


There’s no specific cure for Ebola, but doctors with experience treating it say they have found that if people get early supportive care, including saline solution and fever reducers, they are far more likely to recover.

I am quite aware that the DRC is rich in natural resources, but it is not northern Africa.

Yes, I conceded to that fact. I was referring to countries North of S. Africa. I read another article which states that Ibuprofen and Toremifene can help kill the Ebola virus as well. So good hospitals are a cure for Ebola. Problem solved.

Your source:

"It's unlikely these compounds, as they are now, would be useful drugs for Ebola," Prof Stuart said.


You didn't read very well. No cure as yet, it seems.

Read the quotes in your previous post where you said I should read the links in my previous post. The cure is better hospitals. You quoted this.

It's not a cure. But some patients have a better chance of surviving when given care that lets their own immune system deal with the disease.

Interesting take.

Those getting Ebola, Re typically be the ones who will be digging those resources out of the ground, the labour.

Why would you kill off your cheap labour?

a reply to: Chadwickus

Imo, they (USA corporations & China) are not trying to kill off their free labor. They're trying to destabilize the country so they can steal resources more easily. There are over 5.5 million people in the Congo. Only 500 people in the congo have been diagnosed with Ebola so far with this current outbreak. So there are plenty of slave laborers left. There's also lots of armed conflict in the Congo. It's basically a war zone

The virus is illegally in the US!

Build that wall!



More seriously, I don't think that there is any danger. A short time under quarantine and the doctor will be declared clear and released. No danger to the public.

Kudos to a brave doctor!

You're correct. Same as the common cold when looked at in that way. If I got it and didn't die from it because of good hospital care, I'd consider it cured. But yeah, technically there's no cure for the common cold either just like Ebola. Also, more die from the common cold each year vs Ebola but you don't see many panicking about getting the common cold.

Death by ebola is quite dreadful.

Death by cold, not so much, or common.

The fear is justifiable. But when combined with ignorance it becomes problematic. Such is often the case.

I'm pretty sure death is bad either way

"In the United States alone, the CDC estimates that more than 200,000 people are hospitalized each year with the flu or with flu-related complications. More than 36,000 people die. The World Health Organization has determined that the flu kills between 250,000 to 500,000 people each year."
