    I'm also skeptical of WHO's claim that Sengal and Nigeria have been "pretty much contained". But we were only talking about 1 case in Senegal and 20 cases in Nigeria.

    There was a virologist who predicted not to long ago that Nigeria would explode in 3 to 4 weeks. Hope it doesn't happen but it would be interesting to see if it comes true.

    In my end times studies, I have been operating under the assumption that the four seals (Revelation 6:1-8) Seal 1 - White Horse Seal 2 - Red Horse Seal 3 - Black Horse Seal 4 - Pale Horse

    If I can contribute here. The Revelation was by Jesus Christ. It was a prophecy about what would happen in the future...that time after 90 ad or so when John received it.

    It doesn't stand alone. Christ made the same prophecy in different terms earlier...the Olivet prophecy:

    Mat 24:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"

    Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you.
    Mat 24:5 For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.

    Religious deception, especially false Christianity. Horse 1.

    Mat 24:6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    Mat 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom...

    Wars. Horse 2.

    Matt 24:7 ...And there will be famines...

    Horse 3.

    Matt 24:7 ...pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

    Horse 4.

    Mat 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

    Sorrows is translated from the greek word for labor pains. So the 4 horsemen began to ride almost immediately after John's time. And as history went on all of these things got worse and worse...like labor pains get closer and closer and more powerful as time goes on. Near the end all of these factors will be strong. And they are.

    This guy nails why it's spreading in Africa and why it will spread the same way in America.

    More than most other pandemic diseases (malaria, cholera, plague, etc.) and more than airborne diseases (influenza, swine flu, H5N1, etc.) that are transmitted indiscriminately through the air, this disease is passed through very minute amounts of bodily fluid. Just a slip of contact with the infected party and the caregiver herself can be stricken.

    But imagine: You are a parent whose child has suddenly come ill with a fever. Do you cast your child away and refuse to touch him? Do you cover your face and your arms? Stay back! Unclean! Or do you comfort your child when he asks for you, arms outstretched, to make the pain go away?

    Imagine: You live in a home with five other family members. Your sister falls ill, ostensibly from Ebola, but possibly from malaria, typhoid, yellow fever, or the flu. You are aware of the danger to yourself and your other family members, but you have no simple means to move her, and she is too weak to move herself. What do you do?

    Imagine: You are a child of 5 years old. Your mother is sick. She implores you to back away. But you are scared. What you need, more than anything, is a hug and a cry.

    “Honey - she only has the flu. If we take her to the hospital they’ll want to quarantine the house until they get the tests back. If I don’t make it to work for three days I’m going to lose my job, and we’ve got bills to pay. Let’s just see if it runs it’s course.” And that level of thinking applies to all levels of people. Substitute “lose my job” to “seal that $2 million deal”.

    Good points. The press is minimizing the Africa thing by calling these types of things "cultural" but we have the exact same cultural challenges just on a different level.

    Would you, personally, hug, hold, and kiss your loved one that you know is dying from a deadly contagious disease like Ebola? If the answer is no, then why would you assume that anyone else raised as an American, and steeped in American culture, would do that?

    The point is that there are hundreds of thousands of low information people out there. When a loved one comes down with what looks like the flu do you seriously believe that nobody in the family is going to touch that person? That they're going to wear a hazmat suit whenever they're around them? They're not going to touch the soiled bedsheets and clothes? Seriously?

    First of all, cancer is not contagious--I have never heard that even cancers caused by viruses are contagious. Thus, there is a world of difference between hugging and kissing a dying cancer patient and someone dying of Ebola. I can't imagine too many people would want to physically comfort someone who is covered with vomit and feces--they'd be rushing that person to the hospital. And then that person would be isolated.

    The point was that a dying loved one IS going to be hugged and kissed by loved ones. It's saying goodbye. And they're going to be cleaned up by those same loved ones. They're not going to know it's Ebola until it's too late.

    In the US and other developed countries, there are well-established public health measures to identify, isolate, and treat dangerous infectious disease cases and contacts.

    Sure. So with the very real chance that Ebola could show up here any time how many doctors are fully suiting up to examine each and every patient who comes in with flu-like symptoms? The hard truth is that most medical professionals have never had to fully suitup for anything because the worst that could happen is that they pick up a cold or a flu. With Ebola, the worst that can happen is they die.

    This would probably suffice for even Ebola, but, if not, the menace of a general outbreak would swiftly lead to stronger measures such as the cancellation of public events and suspension of non-essential work, shopping, and travel

    Under penalty of what? I'm going to bet that the first time someone tells the residents of Ferguson (or any other black community) that they have to "stay home" some politician is going to pull the race card. This might have once worked in a United States where people respected law, order and the government. But our "leaders" have been very diligent to insure that hardly anyone holds these values.

    An outbreak of Ebola in a developed country would lead to face masks, gloves, and the general spraying of disinfectant becoming routine in public places. In contrast, in Africa, poverty, corruption, theft, and the shambolic nature of its societies commonly make it impossible for even medical personnel who treat Ebola to have the benefit of containment garments and disinfectants.

    Again I think you have an idealized version of the US in your head...possibly based on where you live. Look at the reaction of certain people to Katrina. Look at inner cities. Look at any large city for that matter. Many of the residents and officials are just as ignorant, just as corrupt, just as dishonest. If this disease takes hold in a black community you can bet that it's going to be billed as a racist plot by whitey. One of the problems in Africa was that many thought that Ebola was fake...that they were really just trying to get blood from people. Have large groups of people in this country ever been convinced of something that isn't true? Trayvon Martin? Saint Mike?

    In a developed country that suffered an Ebola outbreak, medical care for the disease would improve rapidly, with new treatments and vaccines fast tracked into use. The result would almost certainly be the rapid and permanent containment of any such Ebola outbreak, just as bird flu and SARS were contained despite the dire predictions that attached to them.

    Bird flu does not and cannot spread from person to person. You could only get it from direct contact with an infected bird. SARS isn't news anymore but it really wasn't contained. It ripped through several countries. And death from it was primarily in old people. There are and were people in the United States that have likely had SARs and just chalked it up to a bad flu or cold. How many times has something been "going around".

    Ebola aren't like these. The Zaire strain has an up to 90% kill rate. Young, old, doesn't matter. It spreads person to person relatively easily in almost the same way SARS does.

    In sum, Ebola is cause for concern and excitement in the US and other developed countries but is extremely unlikely to generate more than a relatively small number of cases.

    Based on what? That's exactly what they said about it in Africa. Until is showed up in populous places. Once it shows up in a population all theories and practices about containment become kind of cute. Part of the effort is to trace back the activities of victims to see who they might have infected. This works up to a certain point. But it doesn't take much to overwhelm whomever's "job" it is to do this. Take any one hundred people in a mobile society like the United States and try to compile of list of everyone they might have come into contact with in the past week. Did anyone of them go to sporting event? Get on the subway?

    Have you read "The Hot Zone"? It's not fiction. It is a detailed account of the major ebola outbreaks up until the mid 90's. Read it free here.

    Ebola is the worst nightmare of virologists. Read it and see why.

    The most important way is in the way we treat the dead. We don't wash the bodies, we don't give them enemas. Instead, we ship them off to a mortuary to prepare for burial or cremation. During the funeral, most people do not touch the body. This is very different than the African burial customs which are completely responsible for the early spread of Ebola. Later on, nocosomial infection became important.

    My brother-in-law recently died from a short battle with cancer at home. While he was dying he was kissed and hugged repeatedly by his wife, kids and grandkids. They knew he was dying and they were saying goodbye.

    People aren't robots. When someone is dying at home of Ebola they're not going to gown up. They're not going to refrain from kissing and hugging them out of love and compassion. That's exactly what's happening there. That's part of the "culture" that we have over here.

    Ebola is transmitted exclusively by bodily fluids and not by air, like colds and the flu.

    Every body fluid you can think of. Sweat. Spit. Urine. Feces. All of these exit the bodies of the victims in copious amounts and all of these have copious amounts of the virus. Cough or spray aerosols the virus over a relatively large area. Being in a car with someone who is sick has already spread the disease and killed others.

    In developed countries, Ebola would be less transmissible because of less crowding, much greater sanitation as a matter of routine, and the availability of modern medical care.

    You would think. Except for subways, Walmarts, restaurants, malls, trains, airplanes, schools, immigrants living stacked on one another to save money, etc. etc. If anything it's just as crowded in most of our major cities as it is in Africa.

    Finally, in the developed countries, isolation measures would prevent the hospitals from being centers of Ebola infection as they commonly are in Africa.

    People routinely get "hospital" diseases such as mrsa. That can't even be eradicated. Unless ALL medical personnel are willing to suit up every time they see a patient with the sniffles, runny nose, fever or diarrhea this disease will spread just as surely as it is in Africa.

    I have not heard a reasonable explanation why the “developed” world would have a lower rate of transmission. Better sanitation of course, but that sure doesn’t seem to prevent the transmission of the common cold.

    Or how there's diseases that people catch usually only while in the hospital such as mrsa or c-dif. Clearly they can't sanitize enough to stop this so what makes ebola different?

    Plus, in the developed world a sick person can travel to and from work (bus, train, elevator, etc.) and cover 20 miles in a day. A guy in some small village in Africa might travel 4 blocks in a week.

    And how good are busses, trains, elevators, etc actually sanitized?

    Our health care system is obviously better, but there are only a certain number of hospital beds. A quick search showed 10,000 in Minnesota. Maybe goes up to 50,000 with the National Guard, etc. setting up field hospitals. How many will still not be able to get treatment.

    Plus first responders and doctors will be among the first to get sick and die.

    However, those with an overtly black name are looked askance at. The feeling is they were brought up in a household that taught them discrimination is everywhere. Companies fear that these blacks will sue the company for discrimination using a government supplied lawyer.

    Right or wrong I think that's how many people perceive it. A name like "Shaneeka" implies to me a leftist upbringing, angry against society and raised with the belief that all whites are prejudice and out to get the blacks. In other words, they probably have chip on their shoulder and will be difficult to get along with.

    Buy contrast a black person with a name like "Craig" or "John" or "Lisa" implies someone raised with values like hardwork, politeness etc etc.

    Your death rate increases significantly if no one is left to treat the sick. Heart attacks, strokes, accidents...the mortality rate for everything else will skyrocket.

    I never considered that. And think of the first responders...emt's etc. They would have to fully suit up on each and every call or risk exposure.

    “service dogs” aren’t what they used to be. Like everything else people are gaming the system. My father’s friend had her house cat declared a service animal so she could fly with it. Yeah, on the first flight, it went insane. Yep. If you knew her she would admit the farce, but if a waitress or someone in a restaurant said anything she would go nuts and scream about her “needs.”

    Absolutely. Saw a younger healthy guy with a dog in Home Depot the other day. Had a "vest" on but the stupid dog was obviously not trained for anything. It was straining at the leash, trying to sniff and smell everything.

    If the virus becomes aerosolized, all bets are off. It will be like the Spanish flu of 1918.

    By way of comparison the mortality rate of the Spanish Flu was 2.5%. That's two and half percent. On average 2 and 1/2 people out of every 100 would die.

    With the current strain of Ebola 70 out of every 100 die WITH treatment. Ninety out of a hundred are dying without treatment.

    Spanish Flu infected 28% of Americans. If Ebola infects 28% of Americans today that would mean about 89 million people catch Ebola. If 70% of them died, that would mean that about 62.5 million people would be dead in the US alone. That's somewhere around 1/5 of all Americans would be dead if Ebola spread to just 28% of the population.

    It is the aerosolized droplets that I am concerned about. Such droplets come from the flushing of a toilet. I wonder if this is the most difficult route to protect from exposure.

    I would say this would be a major concern. One of the symptoms is copious amounts of diarrhea and vomiting...most of which will be deposited in toilets and aerosoled out.

    “hyper-evolution” DOES NOT EQUAL transmission. It could be more properly equated to rapid genetic change. There has not been; the rate of change has been relatively constant and similar to other virus species.

    The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented... This is a flat-out false statement, is totally unsubstantiated and is not even supported by the subsequent text.

    Michael T. Osterholm, the author of the article, is the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

    I would say he knows what he's talking about.

    The full text of that thought is "The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice."

    This is absolutely true.

    Ok, so, back to killing myself to stop the spread of Ebola.

    Well, you have a 10 to 40 percent chance of surviving if you get it. I think those odds can go up if you're one of the first ones in your neighborhood to get it. You'll be able to be kept hydrated via IV and constant medical attention/treatment. After a few hundred though you're pretty much screwed. :-)

    These distinctions are hugely important in terms of how one handles infections, as well as implications of infection in terms of others around the patient. Droplet precautions only require masks, gloves and sometimes gowns; AIRBORNE precautions require negative-pressure ventilation to ensure no/little transmission to others via a very infective route. Airborne is WAY more concerning in general, at least in terms of transmission. This is sloppy reporting at best.

    If you haven't done it yet, read the "Hot Zone" available on line. It's not fiction. It details some of the Ebola outbreaks up until the time it was written in the mid-90's. Ebola, in the lab, is treated as a class 4 virus and is always worked on in a negative pressure environment. The book also details Ebola Reston, which was definitely airborne in every sense of the word. Ebola Reston is so similar to Ebola Zaire (the kind in West Africa and the most deadly to humans) that they at first thought they were dealing with Eboloa Zaire. Anyways, I would recommend the book to ramp up the learning curve about Ebola and the various strains. It's well written and a fast read.

    The Reston Monkey House incident demonstrated pretty conclusively that Simian Hemorrhagic Fever is transmissible through the air. The lungs shed trillions of virus particles which are ejected long distances through sneezes. The particles can stay suspended in the air a long time.

    And this virus was truly airborne. It moved easily from room to room throughout the monkey house through the ventilation system.

    I still do not think it can take hold here like it can in Africa.

    I think if it ever gets to a major city in America that it will spread much faster then it is in Africa.
