[quote:Pooka:MV80MDU3ODQ5XzczNjQ4OTkxX0E5MkRGODdF] [quote:Gemini Rising:MV80MDU3ODQ5XzczNjQ1MjcxX0M5OTFFMkND] Bodily fluids are everywhere. I paint, and I get paint on my hands all the time. [b]I think I am being careful not to get paint anywhere else, then I look in the mirror and see paint on my face, in my hair, and on my glasses where I push them up all the time without thinking. There is paint on my clothes.[/b] [b] If that paint was a virus like ebola, I'd be dead,[/b] along with most of the people around me who have been gifted paintings or buy paintings. Infection protocols are very difficult to maintain. Not knowing for certain what sort of mask is correct, or what sort of gloves, or what sort of chemicals, or how to clean up before entering the home .... This is all too much for average people to integrate into their daily lives. After Hurricane Katrina, everyone in this area knew those flooded homes were full of mold, mildew, toxic chemicals that leaked from appliances or came in with the flood water. Some people wore masks, some wore full-on hazmat suits to clean out their homes. A lot of people said, oh it's just water, or just use some bleach, the black mold is only on the surface of things. The mold was inside walls, under the floorboards, everywhere. A lot of people developed the Katrina Cough. A lot of people got sick. I'm rambling now. I guess my point is that by the time an official guideline is handed down, it will be too late. [/quote] Gemini Rising, you made wonderful points that I wish every newcomer to this thread would read! Your paint analogy is perfect! We can be so, so very careful, just like you with the paint, but we don't notice our habitual gestures, which would be deadly with ebola. Your description of "normalcy bias" after the hurricane and flooding also demonstrates an excellent point. Putting myself in that position as I read your post, I would probably have been another one with the normalcy bias. "It's my house, I know what's in there. Nothing in there is going to hurt me - it's just water." That really is probably my thought process, so I get it. We have got to get out of our normalcy biases in today's world. I wish everybody in the United States could read your post - truly I do. You have explained everything in few words, that we all need to know. Bless you for this! [/quote]
The first link I provided is here. There are many, many more links throughout the thread, and the thread has gone far, far beyond the Fiji situation. Please read and learn and contribute as we all prepare for what could be a very bad time in this country. At the same time, let's pray together against ebola becoming epidemic here, so that none of this will be required and we will all remain healthy indefinitely!
Apparently the hospital first closed the ward where the couple died, and separated the five people who were ill after coming in contact with the couple from the rest of the hospital into that ward.
Now we hear the hospital has closed, and more people are ill.
Research if you like - I'd love to know more. This is just a heads-up on the possibilities.
Replay the original YT news video which just ended, and watch the chat on the right, as well.
