Are you worried about Ebola coming here?

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

So you should know.

 

You just grabbed a scary pitcher on google image search and ran with it, didn't you?

You apparently didn't use google.

 

Again - a moron.

The second word in the title of the web page with that image is "Hotels"

Google does not rename the title of a web page when you are on that web page.

Where did you lift the fake image from?

ummm google ...

 

try harder next time clear your history and delete your cache and let us know.

 

If you still see "hotel" and other stuff it's because google has your IP address.

 

I don't want to hear about your other searches

 

apparently you search for "hotel" a lot.

 

No judgements.

 

I know its tough being you.

Had a long conversation with my Epidemiologist Daughter who has two years on the front lines in the Congo and Mozambique with MSF**

 

She thinks the scope of this current outbreak will grow but she also thinks a US military lab will be first with a vaccine.

 

She said that Sierra Leone has announced a national 3 day absolute nation wide quarantine. No one leaves their home for 3 full days. I said but the incubation period is much longer and she said that for Ebola a three day interruption in the chain reaction is mathematically enough to drop the multiplication rate below unity (1) i.e. the number of new case will start to decrease combined with a house to house check for symptomatic patients which will be further quarantined. I guess they paint a Red X on your hovel.

 

NSF is against the plan as they think it will drive patients to flea and only spread the disease wider.

 

Sounds like public education is a good start to avoid panic and other problems. But Liberals who have applauded Public Service announcements in general don't like the idea all of a sudden.

When you asked "Are you worried about Ebola coming here?", were you posting from Cameroon? If so, my answer might be different than it is if "here" refers to the US.

I'd suggest the CDC focus their education efforts on diseases already here. The nasty little virus sending kids to the hospital, now, would be a good place to start. Wait, they already did that.


So you want the Gov't to spread some Malarkey about an imminent plague, that may, or may not, hit the US?

 

i think a travel advisory is warranted. That's about it.

For Hypocrisy Jack©, It doesn't matter what the government does. If Obama is the POTUS, the governmental response was wrong.

 

What a shame that he works so hard to undermine the President. Of course, Obama is working hard in that regard, too.

 

But, that just illustrates the level of Hypocrisy with which Jack is personally comfortable.

You forgot the second part of this.

 

In 2012, a team of Canadian researchers proved that Ebola Zaire, the same virus that is causing the West Africa outbreak, could be transmitted by the respiratory route from pigs to monkeys, both of whose lungs are very similar to those of humans. Richard Preston’s 1994 best seller “The Hot Zone” chronicled a 1989 outbreak of a different strain, Ebola Reston virus, among monkeys at a quarantine station near Washington. The virus was transmitted through breathing, and the outbreak ended only when all the monkeys were euthanized. We must consider that such transmissions could happen between humans, if the virus mutates.

So what must we do that we are not doing?

  • SEE ALL COMMENTS

First, we need someone to take over the position of “command and control.” The United Nations is the only international organization that can direct the immense amount of medical, public health and humanitarian aid that must come from many different countries and nongovernmental groups to smother this epidemic. Thus far it has played at best a collaborating role, and with everyone in charge, no one is in charge.

A Security Council resolution could give the United Nations total responsibility for controlling the outbreak, while respecting West African nations’ sovereignty as much as possible. The United Nations could, for instance, secure aircraft and landing rights. Many private airlines are refusing to fly into the affected countries, making it very difficult to deploy critical supplies and personnel. The Group of 7 countries’ military air and ground support must be brought in to ensure supply chains for medical and infection-control products, as well as food and water for quarantined areas.

The United Nations should provide whatever number of beds are needed; the World Health Organization has recommended 1,500, but we may need thousands more. It should also coordinate the recruitment and training around the world of medical and nursing staff, in particular by bringing in local residents who have survived Ebola, and are no longer at risk of infection. Many countries are pledging medical resources, but donations will not result in an effective treatment system if no single group is responsible for coordinating them.

Finally, we have to remember that Ebola isn’t West Africa’s only problem. Tens of thousands die there each year from diseases like AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea have among the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. Because people are now too afraid of contracting Ebola to go to the hospital, very few are getting basic medical care. In addition, many health care workers have been infected with Ebola, and more than 120 have died. Liberia has only 250 doctors left, for a population of four million.

This is about humanitarianism and self-interest. If we wait for vaccines and new drugs to arrive to end the Ebola epidemic, instead of taking major action now, we risk the disease’s reaching from West Africa to our own backyards.

WTF is this supposed to mean? HIV does/has mutated. It is a retrovirus, meaning it's genome is RNA and when transcribing the RNA there is more chance of error since the RNA Polymerase enzyme is not particularly good at proof reading the bases as they get laid down. That RNA genome must also undergo "reverse transcription" when it first enters the host cell, meaning HIV's own polymerase reads the RNA strand, generating a DNA complement strand that then integrates into the host genome. So this is another point where errors can/do occur.

 

Isn't this thread not about Ebola?

Regarding viral mutations and evolution...most viruses evolve to reach a more symbiotic state within their host animals. It's more likely to be successful persisting and spreading if it does not kill its host quickly or at all. It is only when a virus crosses into a different host species that we see high morbidity and mortality rates.

While Ebola mutation to airborne transmission is within realm of possibility, so is mutation to less virulence in humans.

I've worked on molecular biology of Adeno, Paramyxo and Hanta viruses, so i do know a wee bit about the field. How about you?

 

Name me one virus that has ever wiped out its normal host species? Never been observed. All virus species in their normal/natural hosts do not create serious diseases in that host. That's basic evolution at work.

 

Why don't you learn some basic biology before making criticisms?

because I trust people i know versus some lame ass anonymous internet ID on a sailing website who doesn't accept responsibility for himself and others on a sailboat offshore or nearshore.

You need to accept personal responsibility for your opinion or back the fuck off.

Carry on Chicken Little.

 

A vaccine for HIV has eluded us. Since the first Ebola outbreak we have done a fair job confining it to small groups and containment was easier. Now the outbreak is in the bigger cities and the task is dramatically harder. At least now the military and private labs will actually seek an ebola vaccine and unlike HIV that should be achievable in a few years or even less than a year.

 

So all you anti Mormon morons, yes morons, let your hatreds and bigotry cloud your common sense to the point that some of you said that a modest food, water and financial rainy day fun was just religious, voodoo, flat earth, prepper, God be a com'n hysteria.

 

I do not know which disease will be the next 1918 but I do know that people like you that mock those that suggest a little forethought could be wise do all of us a disservice.

 

Have you failed to notice the Global warming parallels the runs through this thread? You sir are an Epidemic Denier.

 

In the mean time my food storage covers me for natural disasters, civil disruption, famine (aren't you GW types predicting food shortages?) or any other unexpected, life event.

 

Tell me Flash do you have any insurance? If you never file a claim will it have been wasted money? Were you stupid to buy it? Home storage is just another form of insurance.

What will happen if TB becomes resistant to our last few firewall antibiotics?

 

Is gene splicing and virus manipulation becoming easier, more automated and less expensive or not?

 

Genome sequencing will break the $1000 barrier and then $100 barrier as it follows Moore's law.

 

The same is true of all Genetic manipulation tools.

 

This path might save us or end us. It is already a lot cheaper to make a virus than a nuclear bomb.

September 6, 2014 Outbreak Update - As of August 28, 2014

  • No confirmed Ebola cases have been reported in the United States.
  • On August 29, 2014, Senegal's Ministry of Public Health and Social Affairs announced a case of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Senegal. The case is in a man from Guinea who traveled to Senegal.
  • The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has reported cases of Ebola. These cases are not related to the ongoing outbreak of Ebola in West Africa. For information on the outbreak in DRC, see the 2014 Ebola Outbreak in DRC page.
  • HHS has contracted with Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. to develop and manufacture ZMapp. Mapp Biopharmaceutical will manufacture a small amount of the drug for early stage clinical safety studies and nonclinical studies.
  • NIH will begin initial human testing of an investigational vaccine to prevent EVD in early September and is working with a company to develop an antiviral drug to treat Ebola.
  • U.S. Department of Defense has funded two companies that are developing drug therapies for Ebola and is working with another company to develop an Ebola vaccine.
  • CDC returned a staff member from West Africa by charter flight after the employee had low-risk contact with an international health worker who recently tested positive for Ebola. This CDC staff member is not sick and does not show symptoms of Ebola. Friends, family, co-workers, and the public are not at risk of getting Ebola from this person.

  • CDC returned a staff member from West Africa by charter flight after the employee had low-risk contact with an international health worker who recently tested positive for Ebola. This CDC staff member is not sick and does not show symptoms of Ebola. Friends, family, co-workers, and the public are not at risk of getting Ebola from this person.

And sadly - this HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE POSTED YESTERDAY.

 

But you're "smarter" than that?

 

Not looking good.....

Hell, I'd be more afraid of HIV mutating to be air transmissible than Ebola. How many HIV carriers are there again?

 

HIV is genetically unique.

 

WTF is this supposed to mean? HIV does/has mutated. It is a retrovirus, meaning it's genome is RNA and when transcribing the RNA there is more chance of error since the RNA Polymerase enzyme is not particularly good at proof reading the bases as they get laid down. That RNA genome must also undergo "reverse transcription" when it first enters the host cell, meaning HIV's own polymerase reads the RNA strand, generating a DNA complement strand that then integrates into the host genome. So this is another point where errors can/do occur.

 

Isn't this thread not about Ebola?

 

Carry on Chicken Little.

 

A vaccine for HIV has eluded us. Since the first Ebola outbreak we have done a fair job confining it to small groups and containment was easier. Now the outbreak is in the bigger cities and the task is dramatically harder. At least now the military and private labs will actually seek an ebola vaccine and unlike HIV that should be achievable in a few years or even less than a year.

 

So all you anti Mormon morons, yes morons, let your hatreds and bigotry cloud your common sense to the point that some of you said that a modest food, water and financial rainy day fun was just religious, voodoo, flat earth, prepper, God be a com'n hysteria.

 

I do not know which disease will be the next 1918 but I do know that people like you that mock those that suggest a little forethought could be wise do all of us a disservice.

 

Have you failed to notice the Global warming parallels the runs through this thread? You sir are an Epidemic Denier.

 

In the mean time my food storage covers me for natural disasters, civil disruption, famine (aren't you GW types predicting food shortages?) or any other unexpected, life event.

 

Tell me Flash do you have any insurance? If you never file a claim will it have been wasted money? Were you stupid to buy it? Home storage is just another form of insurance.

Like I wrote, happy with his mormon head up his ass, i've plenty of supplies, insurance and savings for the "big one" which is infinitely more likely to happen in my lifetime than some Ebola-induced mass hysteria. However, I don't claim that it took religion to make me do it. I looked at where I live, and who's reliant on me. Pretty simple after that. Take your proselytizing to some website where people care.

Mr 1of 5

 

What is this sol you speak of ? I don't remember seeing anything of significance under that listing. Is there something there I should be looking for ?

 

He's a leftie that trolls as a "conservative" - yet stunninlgy only attacks those on the "right" who challenge the "left". My guess is he's another failed attempt at a public figure. So sad to see people waste themselves that way.

why would taking adequate preparation for a possible emergency be a left/right issue? I guess when you're bi-polar, everything is binary.

 

If you'll note, most of us pooh-pooh the hysteria of the Jack over Ebola. "The Gov't run by that idiotic Kenyan must DO SOMETHING!!!" Which is different than ensuring you have emergency supplies for something that is statistically likely to happen.

So flash how does that jive with ebola will never be a problem here.

 

BTW my call was that the PUBLIC needs some education. Let me quote my prior post

 

"I think the public is not ready and the government should start educating us about how a disease outbreak will be contained. How quarantines work, how food and care will be distributed. A bit of public awareness might reduce the panic when the time comes. "

Are you aware that there has been a fair amount of controversy over the quarantine laws in the last few years.

 

Read section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S. Code § 264)

 

http://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/specificlawsregulations.html

 

Or that Hemorrhagic Fevers are one of 8 specifically listed diseases that qualify for quarantine?

Look on the bright side, if you bought a few months-worth of dehydrated Simple Jack Survival Food, you can get a cook's gig on any number of offshore races.

Here is the WHO Fact Sheet on Ebola.

 

Not going to look at that until you assure me they copied it from a post of Hypocrisy Jack©. Hopefully, they left in the colored fonts and highlighting.

  • HHS has contracted with Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. to develop and manufacture ZMapp. Mapp Biopharmaceutical will manufacture a small amount of the drug for early stage clinical safety studies and nonclinical studies.
  • NIH will begin initial human testing of an investigational vaccine to prevent EVD in early September and is working with a company to develop an antiviral drug to treat Ebola.
  • U.S. Department of Defense has funded two companies that are developing drug therapies for Ebola and is working with another company to develop an Ebola vaccine.
  • CDC returned a staff member from West Africa by charter flight after the employee had low-risk contact with an international health worker who recently tested positive for Ebola.
