Cheese eating surrender monkey: meat0918: Anyone remember that Hot Zone show that started out ok, then quickly devolved into Satan is trying to destroy the world with disease?Or am I getting two shows confused?You're probably thinking of " The Burning Zone".

Stile4aly: 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.
Deep Contact: 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.
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!
