(Trust.org)   France briefs doctors on warning signs of ebola as fears grow that latest outbreak could spread from Africa. Briefly, when a patient complains of flu-like symptoms then starts to bleed from the eyes and liquefy like a bass in a blender, it's ebola   (trust.org) divider line 18

It is amazing that it has managed to remain a relatively contained disease.   But it is worth noting that there is a disease which kills up to 90% of the infected people.    There will be a point in the future, sadly, where a disease like this will become widespread.  It is what happens in nature when a species overpopulates.

Start to only bleed from the eyes? From what I understand once it's full developed, you bleed from every opening. Ears, mouth, anus, eyes, nose, wherever. So if you see someone looking like Carrie White at her prom, then they might have Ebola.

Imaginativescreenname: Ok, according to The Hot Zone (Have it on the shelf right next to me!) , most if not all cases of Ebola and Marburg were traced back to one Kitum Cave. Why the FARK haven't they barricaded this thing or filled it in? Seriously, are they having group tours? "Over here on the right you'll see the bat-guano encrusted stalagtite that someone could have touched back in the late seventies and we think there's a possibility that MIGHT be where hiv came from... Please, no touching!"


Kitum Cave is Preston's hypothesis for the home of Marburg (not necessarily Ebola), but truth is that it's endemic is some population of animals and the host species hasn't been identified yet.  The prime candidate is a bat, but we haven't actually found it yet.  Let's grant for a minute that it is a bat.  If it's out in the wild and you seal up the cave where it lives, or where it migrates to, then it has to find somewhere else to live.  You would actually end up causing the vector to seek out a new niche which could potentially cause further spread of the virus.

If only there was some process from the past that when employed could screen out infected people before they were let into the country. Somethng like what they did at Ellis Island. Too Bad common sense was the first casuality.

youmightberight: patowen: Ebola is spread through physical contact.  Scary, but controllable.

Now when it mutates into an airborne pathogen - then we will have a bit of a problem.  At that point we may need to shut...down..everything!

I refer to that as going full Madagascar.


This is full Madagascar.

youmightberight: Richard C Stanford: Well, time to build that decontamination chamber and start stockpiling food.
Figure the best way to survive an outbreak of Ebola would be to just quarantine yourself away from the outside world until it passes.
Am I correct, or am I missing something?

Nope that's a sound strategy - prep for 6 mo of food /water - also good idea to make your house look like it's got Ebola running rampant all over everything. Keeps the looters away.


Sprinkle some dead victims around your front lawn.

♫ When you spleen liquifies
And blood squirts from your eyes
That's ebola... ♫
