Re: Ebola warning US
Bodily fluids are everywhere.

I paint, and I get paint on my hands all the time. 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. If that paint was a virus like ebola, I'd be dead, 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.
 Quoting: Gemini Rising


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!

Ebola is not Airborne it is a bodily fluid disease so it is very easily preventable
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77563072




Sorry, but you are mistaken. Ebola mutates super fast, and there's been proof found that it can be both airborne, and spread by bodily fluids. Scientists have done experiments with monkeys and came to the conclusion that it was spread through the airborne route. The virus will move into a person's lungs and set up shop there replicating itself. So, if someone with the virus starts coughing or sneezing you certainly can catch it from them by breathing in tiny water particles containing the virus from several feet away.

Re: Ebola warning US
the seal of the mask is critical. i bolded the section that i take to mean the effectivenesss of the mask in practical everyday use. just wrinkling your face will change the seal of this mask. it has to sit tight against uyour skin all the way around the mask since everyone is shaped slightly different, there is no way to make a rigid mask that works for everyone 100%. you have better odds with a rubber mask.

for those medical ppl who are dealing with infected,they should be in full suits. saves $$ without and tries to give the impression that the disease is under control.that impression probably matters more in Africa.it also matters for them to keep workers or nurses. make the feel safe or they might get smart and quit. last thing they need is for a drop to get on their arm and then after they remove the gloves,transfer it to their faces.

what the mask does in a perfect lab test is not how they will act in a real world test. as POKA says the best way is to fully avoid being near the disease.

full suits would have some uses 1 is after the disease burns out to do any cleanup.there will be dead bodies. there will also be lots of supplies that can be scavenged and used.family and friends who show up can be isolated for 30 days and then put to work helping to grow food,rebuild society,defense,etc. when you deal with them a suit would protect you and allow you to stand outside and talk with them.
 Quoting: JAZZz50


I've tried the "duck-bill" masks and they do not seal around the face, at least in my trials. That seal is critical, as you have said.

I believe clean-up will be done by those involved in martial law or by National Guard, or by people hired for the purpose, unless so many have died that there is thought to be no reason to bother with clean-up except around DC and the mansions of politicians.

To nurse a family member all protocols must be in place - as you said - full body protection, as well as the ways to seal off the room holding the patient.

This is going to be a mess whichever way it falls out. We can only pray against it happening, pray against the epidemic, pray against any possible plan to decimate the population, and protect ourselves with the best planning and equipment we can manage.

Thank you very much for your post!

Re: Ebola warning US
Interesting thread, thanks for the great information! This news about measles is concerning to me, especially in lieu of the increased occurrence of measles they've been hyping in the US's MSM (Coincidence? Hmm... dont recall hearing about spontaneous measles outbreaks in Congo...)

I've never had the measles, but I remember that years ago, it was regarded about the same as chicken pox. Not fun, to be sure, but not a great epidemic capable of mass fatalities, the way they seem to tout it today.

87,000 measles cases seems pretty crazy. I hope they aren't bioengineering some Ebola-measles hybrid. If they've introduced the measles virus, through any number of vectors, in hopes of it combining with or causing mutations in the Ebola virus, this would be very concerning.
 Quoting: WonderlandAlice


To suddenly have 87,000 cases of measles beggars one's beliefs! I would say it is impossible, based on my own knowledge which would not cover the country, the circumstances, etc. Still, is that really possible? To spontaneously and suddenly have such an epidemic? Ebola in incredibly contagious - why would there be more measles than ebola? Very curious indeed.

Thank you for your post.

Re: Ebola warning US
Someone mentioned earlier the possibility of an ebola/measles hybrid. This could happen in theory, with the supposed measles and ebola outbreak in the Congo area going on at the same time.

Two different viruses can inhabit the same cell, this could result in a new virus made up of the parts of the other two. They say this only occurs rarely though. But with both diseases happening at the same time, and ebola's ability to mutate quickly, it would make for the ideal breeding ground for this to happen.

Also, from what I know of measles it wasn't an especially fatal disease. Not many people died from it. I heard they used to have measle parties, where everyone would bring their kids to get exposed, so they'd get it over with. Now they are saying large numbers of African people are dying from it? Perhaps they are actually dying from ebola, and they're reporting it to be measles. That's where the measles being code for ebola would come in. Either way you look at it, this is getting spooky.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77100776


Yes, it certainly is!

People in NY are having measles parties, or were recently, and it's a very reasonable thing to do. I had both kinds of measles as a child and came through without difficulty. It's not a serious illness for most of us. Pregnant women must avoid one type, I believe the one formerly called "German measles" but other than that - it's all highly suspect, isn't it?

It's really interesting to see that so much information on line still involves only the 2014 epidemic and those previous. Yes, one would think people would be right on top of information and statistics applicable to the current epidemic. I find it hard to believe that nobody has the time to update - so one has to think it may be deliberate, and then to consider why that might be. I have no answers, but my questions continue to stack up.

Oh dear. UH, you make a great point! Our enemies do like to ruin our national holidays if possible!

I don't think ebola epidemic can be planned for a date, though it could erupt around then. Problem is, it could have already erupted in some areas, but that is hidden from us to prevent panic. Could be it will be announced after the Fourth - hard to say.

I expect the ME to pop off any time - it's getting hotter and hotter with rhetoric and attack sorties. The Fourth is a good possibility for all-out attempts, though it seems they are trying to force, literally force, the US to be the aggressor. All so unfortunate, but they are determined to take down both little and big satans, meaning Israel and the US, and turn us all into muslims or kill u s - what a crazy belief system and plan!

Adytum is terrific at what he does - I like that gentleman very much. Hope he does choose to come here and post, but he is very busy with several threads running, watching all the communications with our war planes, and posting new threads every day.

WHO experts, including Tedros, said the decision was made because the overall risk of international spread is low, and a PHEIC designation could further hurt the DRC's economy.

Two health workers infected
Yesterday the DRC's ministry of health said two health workers, including one in Rwampara and one in Musienene, were newly diagnosed with Ebola. Both workers had refused vaccination with Merck's VSV-EBOV, the unlicensed Ebola vaccine currently being used in the region.

The Musienene health worker died in the community, officials said. The two new cases raise the total number of health workers infected during this outbreak to 118, including 39 deaths. Health workers represent 5.5% of all cases diagnosed since last August.

As of yesterday, a total of 135,395 people in the DRC and neighboring countries had been vaccinated with Merck's vaccine. “

Everywhere may have someone wearing a mask seen in public from time to time. Could be someone on chemo, someone extra sensitive about not spreading their cold germs, anything at all. A mask isn't shocking. Gloves also are not. I generally think a person in protective gloves may have a painful skin rash, or a skin disease, or an allergy to a common substance like ink price marks.

Except for teenagers and young adults, this country is pretty accepting of what we see that may be "different" or out of the norm. I believe in all cases a health issue of one kind or another is assumed when seeing protective gear.

Re: Ebola warning US
the seal of the mask is critical. i bolded the section that i take to mean the effectivenesss of the mask in practical everyday use. just wrinkling your face will change the seal of this mask. it has to sit tight against uyour skin all the way around the mask since everyone is shaped slightly different, there is no way to make a rigid mask that works for everyone 100%. you have better odds with a rubber mask.

for those medical ppl who are dealing with infected,they should be in full suits. saves $$ without and tries to give the impression that the disease is under control.that impression probably matters more in Africa.it also matters for them to keep workers or nurses. make the feel safe or they might get smart and quit. last thing they need is for a drop to get on their arm and then after they remove the gloves,transfer it to their faces.

what the mask does in a perfect lab test is not how they will act in a real world test. as POKA says the best way is to fully avoid being near the disease.

full suits would have some uses 1 is after the disease burns out to do any cleanup.there will be dead bodies. there will also be lots of supplies that can be scavenged and used.family and friends who show up can be isolated for 30 days and then put to work helping to grow food,rebuild society,defense,etc. when you deal with them a suit would protect you and allow you to stand outside and talk with them.

I've tried the "duck-bill" masks and they do not seal around the face, at least in my trials. That seal is critical, as you have said.

I believe clean-up will be done by those involved in martial law or by National Guard, or by people hired for the purpose, unless so many have died that there is thought to be no reason to bother with clean-up except around DC and the mansions of politicians.

To nurse a family member all protocols must be in place - as you said - full body protection, as well as the ways to seal off the room holding the patient.

This is going to be a mess whichever way it falls out. We can only pray against it happening, pray against the epidemic, pray against any possible plan to decimate the population, and protect ourselves with the best planning and equipment we can manage.

Thank you very much for your post!

a real bio-hazard suit is plenty well sealed up.
