Ebola… The Bat-Eaters' Disease Vs Quarantine & Barrier-Nursing.

Incubation Period, 7 – 21 Days…. Infected Patients are not considered to be Contagious until the first onset of Symptoms…; so, it’s the FIRST Vomit or Diorrhoea to be sprayed around that’ll be most likely to infect an unsuspecting Carer or Family Member….
Anybody with Early Onset Symptoms typical of any common Upper-Respiritory or Gastro-Intestinal Viruses should be regarded as being, quite possibly, showing early Ebola Symptoms…; &, therefore, Barrier-Nursed until they recover from the Gastro’, or Headcold, rather than treated as being relatively harmless right up until they begin bleeding from their Eyeballs….
And, the faster that ALL International Air Travel is grounded while a compulsory 28-Day Pre-Embarkation Quarantine System is emplaced, & enforced, for ALL Aircrew, & ALL Passsengers (ditto with ALL Seagoing Vessels, too…) ; the better it will be.., in terms of eradicating this current outbreak of Ebola Virus.
However, in the view of the Fruit Bats though, maybe all is going quite well & according to Plan ; & the end of the Anthropocene is drawing duly nigh…?

For updates on the progress of the Ebola Outbreak, try RefriedBeanDip Channel, wherein Richard has posted developments as they’ve come up…; as well as how it all looks from Florida…

I can’t reply to anything, but I do enjoy reading the Comments which do manage to appear…

Eventually measures taken against Ebola, World countries agree it's going to be a global problem.

Ebola Scare in NYC!

And senior nurse Warbles you may wish to rethink your 28 days quarantine period as according to the CDC "Semen is infectious in survivors for up to 50 days" (a)
Furthermore "During an outbreak 1999 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, seven of eight people who received blood transfusions from individuals who had previously survived the infection survived themselves" (b) Hardly 50% to 90% mortality rate !
Just like in a war, the truth is the first victim…so are the facts in most doomsday scenarios.
As for a vaccine –
"On 6 December 2011, the development of a successful vaccine against Ebola for mice was reported. Unlike the predecessors, it can be freeze-dried and thus stored for long periods in wait for an outbreak.] An experimental vaccine made by researchers at Canada's national laboratory in Winnipeg was used in 2009 to pre-emptively treat a German scientist who might have been infected during a lab accident. However, actual EBOV infection could never be demonstrated without a doubt. Experimentally, recombinant vesicular stomatitis Indiana virus (VSIV) expressing the glycoprotein of EBOV or SUDV    HAS BEEN USED SUCCESFULLY     in nonhuman primate models as post-exposure prophylaxis.

We're all like to die peacefully in our sleep of natural causes. We don't need man-made catastrophes to kill us. Fukushima is far worse than anyone realises. In the morning of 8/5/2014, Tepco discharged 2,007 t of bypass contaminated water. That's 682,380,000 Bq of Tritium*. In order not to use the sub-drains, Tepco and the government of Japan proceeded to the bypass project and frozen water wall project, but neither of them are showing any results. Apparently Tepco is admitting these projects are failing and is going to discharge the pumped up water to the Pacific. The water is supposed to be “purified” before discharge, but the multiple nuclide removing system ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) has never been in full operation.
Moreover, Tritium cannot be removed by ALPS. Tritium density in pumped up water was 110,000,000 Bq/m3 last summer. (cf, 110,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium from sub-drain of reactor1.) Thank God the Pirate Of The South will come to TEPCO's rescue.

* the half life of tritium is12.3 years. If you want to visualise what radiating poisoning is like, remember Alexander Litvinenko. That  was Polonium. Polonium is found naturally in the food chain, especially in seafood, where it concentrates. Just one gram of 210^Po could in theory poison 20 million people of whom 10 million would die. Write your will, folks.

The world was to be thrown into chaos when 1999 turned into 2000 with the Y2K bug.
The world was to end several times over the last decade according to predictions by Nostradamus and others.
The world was to be thrown into anarchy with the Global Financial Crisis.
The radioactive fallout from fukishima dai-ichi nuclear power plant was to devastate the Northern Hemisphere.
There is to be a global polar shift.
Its easy to fear stuff and get caught up in the Doomsday mentality.
Yeah sure its a serious issue.. But chances are Ebola has been around as long as humans have walked the earth. I'm not going to freak out when my child vomits on the toilet floor just yet !!
I like your active imagination Numbnutts.

aaahhh, I had noticed the CDC saying it was 60% mol, and read the 90% thing.

bin don says:

What are these people capable of to line their pockets? Look at history, the experiments with radiation on people from institutions, whatever. Has everyone read the Constant Gardener, the 2001 novel by John le Carré? If not, watch the film. What are they capable of??
 Look at Toady. Wouldn't import 'heavy water' and dump it in coal mines? You bet he bloody would. They're immoral. Who made money out of Tamiflu? Not me. Sars? Mers? They wheel these scares out every so often. Aids was another; that was supposed only to affect gays. They can target specific species; sparrows ( we noticed that.) Who noticed the missing flies? It's the govts and labs playing with their new toys.

I greatly enjoy listening to your take on things. Now reading up on barrier nursing. Thank you for making and sharing!

Nhurm says:

The higher survivability rate and intense care given because of it actually increases the probability for the spread of this particular strain of Ebola. That said I'm fairly optimistic with regard to this particular outbreak spreading to a significant degree.

walkabout16 says:

Deforestation, development may be driving Ebola outbreaks, experts say that it has driven bats out of their former habitat/domain. As humans transform ecosystems and come into closer contact with animals, scientists fear more viral epidemics.

What's the connecton between RumP-feld, Mapp Bio-pharmaceutical and the new wonder cure for E-bola? Wake up, people
