"Earlier this week Sierra Leone's top Ebola doctor, Sheik Umar Khan, was infected with the disease. The 39-year-old doctor has reportedly treated 100 Ebola patients. He is currently being treated by the organization, Doctors Without Borders."

This is what happens when people feel entitled to exercise old-world superstitions over the realities of science. Hopefully they'll all die, but Darwin never seems to have that kind of luck any more.

Doctors are human too. They catch communicable disease the same as anyone else. It's not like there's an ebola vaccine or cure.

If they do, they'll take thousands with them, probably, depending on how much contact they have with others and where they go.  Ebola doesn't do a religion check before infecting people.

But enough about anti-vaxxers who think that injections are a time machine that derps up their babies.  Let's get back onto the topic of Ebola.

Jesus Christ, there was no security? Not a group of men, armed, that were watching a part of a hospital that had a woman in it, that had a virus so terrible, it could annihilate millions of people? And a FAMILY just walked in, and took her out? Wow, the stupidity is mind boggling. She should have been moved to a remote location that could be secured, and have her still get help. Not that it would make allot of difference to her, hemorrhagic fever is farked up. Now her family is going to get it as she coughs out her last gasps, and they will subsequently give it to their neighbors, people at the store, who will give it to their families....etc.


/Ya, pretty farked up. Might want to just cancel all flights in and out of that place and close down the roads until this gets fixed.

No ebolavirus-specific treatment exists. Treatment is primarily supportive in nature and includes minimizing invasive procedures, balancing fluids and electrolytes to counter dehydration, administration of anticoagulants early in infection to prevent or control disseminated intravascular coagulation, administration of procoagulants late in infection to control hemorrhaging, maintaining oxygen levels, pain management, and administration of antibiotics or antimycotics to treat secondary infections.[84][85][86]

Btw...disseminated itravascular coagulation is pretty much where your capillary "bed" collapses due to clottting, and the blood having nowhere to go, and no way to clot blood anymore....pretty much comes out of every orifice you have. Including your ass, eyes, nail beds, pores. In essence,  your blood loses its ability to clot blood, and you leak out from everywhere. Not a pretty way to go.

People are infectious as long as their blood and secretions contain the virus. Ebola virus was isolated from semen 61 days after onset of illness in a man who was infected in a laboratory.
The incubation period, that is, the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 days.
 Ebola then spreads in the community through human-to-human transmission, with infection resulting from direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, and indirect contact with environments contaminated with such fluids. Burial ceremonies in which mourners have direct contact with the body of the deceased person can also play a role in the transmission of Ebola. Men who have recovered from the disease can still transmit the virus through their semen for up to 7 weeks after recovery from illness.

Have been waiting for someone to arrive, all asymptomatic & dapper, from an affected region, and go help out at the his/her relative's family restaurant in NYC.  So far, so good.

60% is a decent culling rate. Might even help eliminate the rot in hell Americans but boohoo African brats deserve all the help commercials. 5 cents a day nothing, send sammich bags to hold the liquified goo that was done a favor.

Wouldn't hurt for this to spill into the Middle East either.

I can't even.


Joseph McCormick, who used to head the CDC and spent decades searching for Ebola's natural reservoir (the animal population among which it was endemic but while not killing its hosts, and where it resides in between human outbreaks) once got acidentally jabbed with a syringe while taking a blood sample from a sick old woman in a hut full of infected people. IIRC, the patient spasmed and the needle penetrated both layers of his gloves. Out of 15-20 people in the hut, she alone had typhus and not Ebola Zaire (the 90%+ mortality strain).

/that incident was used as partial inspiration for the movie Outbreak, along with the Marburg and Reston outbreaks

Ignorant  family, stupidity will pay them back. Sadly, others will suffer as well. I don't mind shooting folks like them, if they are going to bring greater danger with their foolishness.

If I am living there, I would barricade myself in the house, until all this over.

No no, Ebola virus is highly resistant to practically everything. Neutron radiation would ensure every last trace of that sucker was dead.

Otherwise, who would care if we had to rebuild that shiathole from the ground up.
