Boston Considers Banning Deadliest Pathogens From New Biolab

Boston is set this week to debate whether to ban a new, downtown biodefense laboratory from studying some of the world's deadliest disease agents.

A Wednesday city council hearing is expected to consider a proposed citywide prohibition on so-called "Biosafety Level 4" research, which can involve diseases for which there are no known cures. The initiative marks the latest local pushback against Boston University's effort to pursue the sensitive pathogen studies at its recently completed National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories.

In his draft ordinance, Councilor Charles Yancey said conducting such research at the site could enable an agent such as Ebola or Marburg to escape into the city, either by accident or deliberate action.

"I am not convinced we really need to invite that possibility to the city of Boston," Yancey told the Boston Globe in remarks published in a Sunday editorial.

YOU, and only YOU are responsible for maintaining the balance of power between you and the rest of the semi-sentient beings in this world. You cannot disclaim or delegate that responsibility; it is a function of being a living, breathing "adult" in this world. If you can't manage yourself on those terms, someone else *will* manage you on their terms. Your terms are irrelevant. Buy a rifle; prepare to defend yourself. If you don't, what happens is *your* fault. Period.

Ebola Hunters Turn to Dogs
By Anne Casselman|Sunday, July 24, 2005

After epidemiologist Eric Leroy saw dogs scavenge the bloody remains of hunting expeditions in the jungles of the African country of Gabon, he wondered if they could contract the deadly Ebola virus. Some 439 blood samples later, Leroy’s fears were confirmed. Dogs—especially rural dogs—carry Ebola antibodies, proof that they were exposed to the virus before developing an apparent immunity. “If the dog can be infected, it can excrete the virus for a few days,” he says. “During this time it can be itself infectious for the human community living near the dogs.”

The study has led to an important tool for epidemiologists. Ebola antibodies in dogs are an indication of virus circulation, key information in regions where tracing the disease’s sporadic and unusual outbreaks has been difficult. When “there are a lot of dogs with antibodies, this means that a lot of dogs were in contact with the virus,” says Leroy, who works for the International Center for Medical Research in Gabon. “This means that the risk is very present . . . higher than elsewhere.”

"It took only moments to feel the impact of what was happening here.

We had just landed in Conakry, the capital of Guinea. In the fields right outside the airport, a young woman was in tears. She started to wail and shout in Susu, one of the 40 languages spoken in this tiny country of 12 million people.

The gathered crowd became silent and listened intently.
The young man sitting next to me quietly translated, although I already had my suspicions. He told me the woman's husband had died of Ebola, and then quickly ushered us away.
"
...

"It has gone "viral," and now the hope is that it doesn't go global."
 Quoting: Tharamis


It begs credulity that anyone with any connection to Ebola would even open their mouth, let alone be conveniently located, weeping and wailing, next to the airport Gypta is arriving at. Did he mention that this shit is not only in Guinea? Looks like the part with "Remember these numbers" got edited out. Dafuq that's supposed to mean?

And let me throw in "emerging diseases." Who they think they're fooling?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56162956


Yeah that was the first thing I thought. One of two things happened there.

1. Gupta was making the whole thing up. Grandstanding, in desperate need of a story OR

2. The thing has become so out of control, that the who has NOT tracked down all family members (not even close) associated with people who've died of ebola.

Seriously, the guy probably took a few weeks to die and his wife is out crying at an airport? WTF?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 55528017


Also from the CNN article:

For the next 21 days (the outer range of the incubation period) the woman we saw will be monitored for a fever or any early signs she may have contracted Ebola from her husband. If she exhibits symptoms, she will be isolated and treated with fluids, oxygen and nutrition.

It may not be an ideal location, but she is apparently under observation.
 Quoting: Vic-chick13


Well then CNN comes in to save the day!

Are they just thinking we're idiots or are they not aware of the fact that her husband was probably STARTING to get sick roughly 21 days ago. Which means she could very well be very far into her sickness.

When he went into the hospital, she was obviously not held for observation. So she's had more than 3 weeks out in the wild to potentially infect other people.The WHO has no control of this if this is true/

Liberia Health Workers Protest Appalling Working Conditions



Monrovia - Health workers in Liberia are protesting appalling working conditions, including the lack of protective gears for medical practitioners who cater for people with infectious and contagious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, Lassa fever and now Ebola. The Health Workers are decrying that the lack of materials that will protect them while dealing with people affected with these diseases expose them to numerous health hazards while they are the least paid in the Liberian society.

Yeah, because we believe them. Really, we do.

So here it is, 4/15, and no new case figures for the last 4 days. But I think it's safe to say that we're darned close to, if not over, the contagion figures I posted on 3/31 and 4/1 -

"a modeled estimate of 300-400 cases by April 10th"
And
"...by the time they are saying it is 5 countries, there will be 8 (around April 14th)"

Let us pray that I am wrong, because if I am correct, and we presently have 500+ cases and 220+ deaths, spread across 8-10 countries, then we are on track for a massive outbreak in the coming 52 days... in the countries where it has been spread by human traffic, it will be strongest in the port cities, and thus the propagation will be quite rapid.

Including a better than 50% probability that Ebola has escaped Africa, and successfully landed in each of - Europe, the US, and or the Middle East.

Guinea, Liberia, Siera Leone, Mali, Cote Di Ivoire, Morocco, Senegal, Gambia, Nigeria, and Algeria. These are the ones to watch... a large uptick in cases reported in any of them (or a new cluster emerging where there had not previously been any cases) is a strong indication that we have an emerging global pandemic...

Islamist terrorist Mokhtar Belmokhtar Libya



On the death said, he reappeared since. Islamist Algerian Mokhtar Belmokhtar, great figure of jihadist terrorism in the Sahel and the Sahara, Libya would be removed, according to several security sources. It does not intend to remain inactive, according to these sources.

Mokhtar Belmokhtar, Algerian jihadist veteran, is one of the most sought after in northern Mali men. He knew he was hounded by French troops and by U.S. drones. The United States has price on his head for $ 5 million. Discreetly, the so-called "Belawar" (the blind) preferred to slip in the direction of Libya, where he joined other jihadists.

Attacks in preparation


Several security sources in the sub-region confirm the information. From there, according to the same security sources, he seems determined to continue to talk about him. It plans to organize, there, new attacks against Western interests and their local allies.

When did Ebola get an incubation period of three to four weeks?


NY times 2013:

Ebola Has a During the incubation period, which can last about 1 week (rarely up to 2 weeks) after infection, symptoms include:


From the book the hot zone:
Ebola has an incubation period of two days, and burns itself out.

From the Trivial Pursuit game I played this weekend: "Ebola, which has an incubation period of two days..."


question
 Quoting: Lemon


I wouldn't count on "Trivial Pursuit" as being a perfect information source. I CAN have an incubation period of 2-3 days if the viral load is big enough, but if you get hit by a microscopic amount of the virus, it could take up to 21 days for you to exhibit symptoms. It's still a physical substance. Conservation of matter and energy still applies here.

weird, look at the Moroccan times article. Someone made the last sentence in bold and changed it. It was different before.


[link to moroccantimes.com]

The Ministry of Health clearly reiterated: “No infection case with the Ebola virus has been registered in Morocco. Neither inside the country, nor in any of Morocco’s airports”.

****this statement has changed, someone edited this article and also added the bold.....***
 Quoting: The Nihilist


Yeah, because we believe them. Really, we do.

So here it is, 4/15, and no new case figures for the last 4 days. But I think it's safe to say that we're darned close to, if not over, the contagion figures I posted on 3/31 and 4/1 -

"a modeled estimate of 300-400 cases by April 10th"
And
"...by the time they are saying it is 5 countries, there will be 8 (around April 14th)"

Let us pray that I am wrong, because if I am correct, and we presently have 500+ cases and 220+ deaths, spread across 8-10 countries, then we are on track for a massive outbreak in the coming 52 days... in the countries where it has been spread by human traffic, it will be strongest in the port cities, and thus the propagation will be quite rapid.

Including a better than 50% probability that Ebola has escaped Africa, and successfully landed in each of - Europe, the US, and or the Middle East.

Guinea, Liberia, Siera Leone, Mali, Cote Di Ivoire, Morocco, Senegal, Gambia, Nigeria, and Algeria. These are the ones to watch... a large uptick in cases reported in any of them (or a new cluster emerging where there had not previously been any cases) is a strong indication that we have an emerging global pandemic...

Interesting. I don't have anything prepped and I've never really considered prepping before, but this seems like it might just get serious enough for me to have to at least think about popping to B&Q etc. especially after I watched Contagion the other day! Where should I start?!

Is this air born .. or through respiratory fluids?

 Quoting: redrosie


We don't know that it's airborne. It's possible. It is in all other fluids, mucus and saliva (so, "airborne" via sneeze or cough, but the droplets will settle), blood, sweat, tears, semen, and other mucus.

Truly airborn, and it becomes a nightmare.

Case numbers edge upward in West Africa Ebola outbreak
[link to www.cidrap.umn.edu]
Lisa Schnirring Apr 14, 2014

Guinea's health ministry today reported 10 more infections compatible with Ebola virus disease (EVD), as hospital officials in the country's capital probe a cluster of cases linked to a funeral, one of which involved a doctor who died from his infection, the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Africa reported today.

The new EVD cases in Guinea lift the country's outbreak total to 168. Seven new deaths have been reported, pushing the fatality number to 108. So far 71 of the infections have been confirmed by lab tests.

As of Apr 11, the most recent illness onsets are Apr 10, in patients from Conakry, the capital, and Guekedou, an area in the forested area of southeastern Guinea, near where the outbreak is thought to have started. The onset date falls well within the disease's 2- to 21-day incubation period, a sign that that the outbreak is ongoing.

The WHO said doctors at the Donka Hospital isolation facility in Conakry are probing a cluster of patients who had funeral contact with a relative who died on Apr 1 from a suspected malaria infection. Two of the contacts were admitted on Apr 12 and tested positive for EVD. An internal medicine doctor who had treated the patient and later died is also part of the transmission chain. The WHO said he had symptoms of EVD but no bleeding and that his postmortem samples were positive for the virus.


Multiple snips above.

Comment:
This would be bad. Has the virus changed? Is it being spread by casual contact with people who are not severely ill?

DAKAR, Senegal — Gambian authorities have written a letter to airlines flying into the West African country saying they cannot pick up passengers from countries where there have been suspected cases of Ebola.

A letter from the Gambian Transport Ministry addressed to four airlines instructs them not to pick up passengers in the capitals of Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone. The letter, dated April 10, was obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

N95 masks (with face shields, or have splash goggles)
Exam gloves
I'd also have a few Tyvek suits on hand (get them at home improvement or paint store)
Lots of Duct tape
a few rolls of 3mil or thicker plastic sheeting
several gallons of "unscented" chlorine bleach
several bottles of <= 91% isopropyl alcohol "anhydrous alcohol"

Have enough of the following to sustain your household for 90-120 days
Food
Water storage and filtration
Personal hygiene - TP, etc.
OTC pharma (motrin, pepto, etc) and any prescription meds
Entertainment and morale supplies

Also recommended:
Batter operated radio(s) + batteries
A solar power system, or at least a solar charger for your phone, tablet, etc. in case of power loss

That's a good starter list...
