12 year average.... It is what it is.... Then again in fantasy land I guess it only take a couple of weeks

Tell us again how zmapp is going to end ebola..... Oh that's right, you can't, because more people have died after taking it than have lived sounds really effective to me

100% success rate on non human primates..... I guess that's a good start.

Experimental Ebola Treatments Bypassing Usual Regulatory Hurdles

Quote:
Both vaccines proved to be 100 percent effective in protecting monkeys against infection with the Ebola virus, without side effects.

Expedited clinical trials also mean researchers may dispense with the usual protocol of giving a group of participants a placebo, or inactive substance, so researchers can study a drug’s effectiveness.

The Ebola virus carries a 90 percent mortality rate. Bioethicists say it would be unethical to give a fake drug to people infected with the lethal pathogen.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

Is it also unethical to give poor people the trials?


No. No it is not.

Well here we are, 2 transmissions from 1 infected person.
Within a population of 310-350 million. It's under control. *sigh*

You have no evidence to back up your theory that this virus is going airborne. You can not catch Ebola by sitting across the room from someone who has it. You can only catch Ebola from coming into direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who has the disease and is showing symptoms.


Nigeria, unlike other Ebola-stricken countries, has succeeded in wiping out the disease. The Nigerians did it, Robert. North Americans need only look to Nigeria to calm their fears about an Ebola outbreak.

Two white American medical staff who contracted Ebola and flown back to the US responded well to treatment and there are no reported case of those who cared for them contracting Ebola.


There is no reason at all to think this is the end all strain. l'm sorry to bust your bubble, bud.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

Our efforts are futile. Pearls before swine, my friend.

Yeah, so far

We'll see what you're saying a few months from now. Hopefully it fizzles out.

I honestly don't know how you can feel secure knowing that the nation of 350million has less than 20 beds equipped to deal with Ebola (what % is that ?).

But whatever...... The next few months will show where this is headed.
If it continues on this pace it won't be good.

Stop putting words in my fucking mouth.

I've NEVER said it WAS going to go airborne as a primary means of transmission..... that being said, seeing as it is already present in saliva and mucus, what's the definition of being airborne?
Every time an infected person coughs or sneezes its going airborne, the only thing that differentiates it from the flu or common cold is how long it survives outside the body........ So you tell me, how much of a mutation will it take to survive longer in the air?

Then there's the whole issue of some level of dissention in the scientific community regarding transmission, but hey, your minds already made up so I'm sure you won't read this anyways......... Just put your faith in a drug that has never been tested in humans, or another one with a 50% fatality rate

Nigeria had 20 cases, how much you want to bet it comes back?
