“British-Nigerian woman in Austria.”

All these people seem to hop around the world at will, while I don’t even go to Greensboro. On the other hand, I won’t contract Ebola ...

I hope that’s true, but ebola might just be
coming to YOU.

I can’t help feeling that we are watching the beginning
of something that is going to change the world.

Neither will your point of departure be in a town named Vomp.

Won't hear, "Poor woman, she just upped and went Vomp."

I’m counting on Ebola sufferers’ not making it to my boring suburban Walmart. We’re a good distance from the airport!

Very few, if any (I’m losing track) of these suspected cases around the world have been confirmed to be Ebola. But it’s only a matter of time.

One day there won’t be any bleach or canned food in the stores.

LOL. I don’t get out much, either. You’re not too far from me. I’m an hour north of the NC border in Virginia.

With that raid on the hospital in Monrovia we can expect to see a major out break over the next 3 weeks. No telling how far nor where it will spread then.

There are many viral infections besides Ebola. We knew a man when we were living in Nepal, who returned from a trip to India on a Tuesday with a slight cough and was dead on Saturday from viral pneumonia.

Some people travel from Rhode Island to Nebraska to visit family...some travel from Britain to Nigeria. was on a flight a few months ago from New York to Dubai and got talking to the guy next to me who was going to visit his elderly mother in India.

Yes, so far none. I mean people die every day but it does seem only a matter of time before some person slips through. Although I HOPE NOT.

You might not have to go to Greensboro to get it. These people who seem to have plenty of resources to fly all over the world (I wonder if any of them have EBT cards)will bring it to you and save you the trouble of looking for it.

She went through Germany on her way to Austria so add another large group of people with possible exposure.

Yeah, you and I seem pretty well anchored locally. A trip for me to Spokane now (145 miles) is a big deal. Weren’t you talking about visiting Italy a couple of years ago, though? Or was that just a dream? Please forgive me if wrong.

Thing I’m worried about is we (the town) have constant visitors coming through Dulles and from points beyond, including pretty much every country in the world with nuke plants.. In fact, my family had a visitor through Dulles just last week. Heck, even the biowarfare people come here now that the local national lab is doing detection work.

So far, the virus has not become truly aerosolized (”airborne”) but I worry about those visitors using the same door handles I do on the way downtown. Fortunately, transmission doesn’t seem to occur prior to symptoms or this would be a lot worse.

The WHO and CDC and NHS have generally been correct about the limited contagiousness and difficulty of transmission (just so we don’t get a huge spike in new cases in the next ten days or so).

Does any one at Wal-Mart travel? It only takes one person on a plane to spread it

(I wonder if any of them have EBT cards)

I know that Immigrationn Canada -- at least some of the time -- refuses entry to Americans listed as receiving SNAP or TANF benefits, on the basis that they may not be able to pay their expenses while in the country. This creates problems for guardians, foster parents, etc., who have the card but who are not in financial straits.

It was a dream. My mother and I "were going" to Rome when she turned 75, but I had a baby, and that was the last year before my father moved into the Alzheimer's unit, so Mom couldn't leave him for a minute.

I suppose I could cross paths with someone at the Walmart, the gym, or church ... but I go year after year without getting the flu, when there are thousands of verified local cases. I think a lightning strike is far more likely than my contracting Ebola, and I have plenty of life insurance.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

One thing I don’t understand is this - New “victims” just popped up dead.

At least some of these would have real good suspicion(s) that they have serious ‘viral infection’ problem (ebola or not).

Is it denial? Do they just ‘stay at home’ and die? Do they even seek some kind of treatment? Even counting the 20-21 days of lag time. Why wouldn’t healthcare professions be on high alert especially now ebola spread is very real?

Oh, you won’t have to “go” to get Ebola. Once in the US, it will come to you.

The problem is the genie is already out of the bottle.

They could close down the borders every time they see a case, but they would be 21-25 days late.

Not that anyone would do this, but you only need go to the rest rooms in the airports and watch the folks coming and going. For many people, a stop at the nearest rest room is the first stop off the airplane.

It only takes a few viral parts on a toilet seat to kill thousands. Sure, its not going to live forever on the seat, but it will live until the next butt sits down.

And the force of those flushes tosses up, literally, millions of water particles. Its not that we are pooping in the streets, but if you think you are immune because you cover the seat is simply naive.

We have to talk about uncomfortable issues here: Vomit, feces, hygiene, etc. The process of dying of Ebola is simply wet and horrible.

One of the symptoms is cognitive dissonance. They don’t know how sick they are, and don’t seek help.
