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?
Okay lets just agree to disagree then?

I think they know the biggest danger would be the panic that would happen if they admitted just how infectious it is, or that they really are not ready to handle this.
Saying that its on the same level as aids transmission wise is laughable.

I remember when SARS hit Toronto, even though it was a pretty small number of cases people were walking around in surgical masks...... It was a huge hit to the economy.

I totally understand where you're coming from. I really think that this WILL fizzle out at some point.

I'm just kind of disturbed that the international community has let it go this far, this fast, and still doesn't seem to have a plan to deal with it.

The only thing like this I've seen was the sars outbreak, and it seemed like there was a sense of urgency stamping it out...... This has a much higher death rate, more infections, and its still doubling every couple of weeks.

Its all good man, no hard feelings......

The two main things I've taken away from what you said are what I made bold. The likelihood that this virus could mutate to become airborne is highly unlikely and if it somehow did, it would become more like an Ebola flu.

Could you ask your boyfriend to come share some of his knowledge on here with us about it?
I'm glad I can help shed light on this subject. The next time I talk to him, I'll be more than happy to ask him, but I too can also research journals on the subject if need be to help answer more specific questions too. Unfortunately, he doesn't have an account on here since I've been a member before I started dating him so he has no idea about it, but I know he's always happy to share his knowledge anyway.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

Speaking of journal articles: http://jid.oxfordjournals.org/conten...ment_1/ix.long This one goes into the history and virology of the ebola virus. General information stuff. It's a bit of a long read, but if you're really interested in learning about the virus, you might find it enjoyable. Not a lot in known about it so we don't have all the answers and can only speculate how it works by comparing it to similar viruses like Marbug.
Also going back to HIV. Something I learned about how ebola, a filovirus and HIV, a retrovirus share a common motif in their ability to supress the immune system. http://link.springer.com/chapter/10....4613-1407-3_10 The full article isn't available for free, but if you press the "look inside" it can give you the introduction, which gives a good idea of what's going on. Hope these help.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

I was proud of the news this morning.. It was CBS news and it started the top story with the death of a girl from San Diego University from meningitis and all the people effected and needing quarantine. Then they moved to Ebola the second story, it made me glad they actually started with something of closer and more concern for me.

Yeah, the anti vaccine people is what caused this I'm sure. That whole situation was preventable and it made me upset to hear about it.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

All is not lost. We now have a Ebola czar. Sure he's not a doctor, never organized emergency services, nor is any thing close to a specialist on infectious disease. But he is a loyal Democrat operative who knows how to read a teleprompter.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

We'll see. This isn't the first year some people thought they were good. They're just a loss on wildcard weekend away from being the lost boys.
