Here is a link to a CDC Infection Control for Viral Haemorrhagic Fevers which may have many ways to protect and control infections. It is a PDF book with 209 pages so a lot of info. I think we all need to have this information.November 7, 2014 at 10:02 pm #28583
Good find. I would use more effective PPE instead of the masks and gowns as recommended in this manual. A full face respirator and total covering suit. The CDC replaced the PPE standard after the Dallas fiasco.November 7, 2014 at 10:13 pm #28586
Hear’s an interesting tidbit: “The CDC has ordered $2.7 million in personal protective equipment that is being configured into 50 kits for rapid deployment to hospitals, it said in a statement.
Some U.S. orders of protective equipment have been backlogged amid growing domestic demand, as manufacturers prioritize a flood of requests from aid agencies trying to curb the outbreak in West Africa.
The CDC tightened its guidelines for people handling Ebola patients on Oct. 20, requiring a fluid-resistant gown, gloves, a hood, shoe coverings and a face mask.” meaning a full face.
This equipment will be more costly and harder to acquire in the future.November 7, 2014 at 10:20 pm #28587
Yes agree 74, the new updates are good to do. The PDF book is not updated to the latest requirements but does have additional info in there that we all need to know.
Thanks for your link.November 8, 2014 at 12:09 am #28594
instead of starting a new thread just gonna post this here. pretty much as expected since the begining, add a zero.

KOS It looks like Ebola is still out of control and growing.November 8, 2014 at 4:04 am #28616
The only chage is that the White Hut has clamped down on the reporting of ebola to keep it out of the news. The AP will not report any ebola news.November 8, 2014 at 12:54 pm #28620
What the CDC and Federal Govt. in general aren’t understanding is that the politicization of the CDC in recent years in combination with govt. becoming increasingly secretive and disingenuous has served to make the public less willing to accept at face value what they say. Once lost trust is hard to get back. Clamping down on ebola news is not going to make ebola go away but rather make the public less willing to believe anything govt. and the main stream media says.November 9, 2014 at 8:05 am #28672
Everyone should check this here out: http://www.wired.com/2014/11/ebola-healthcare-workers-get-dressed/#slide-id-1619725
It’s an image series how Ebola workers get dressed. While Ebola isnt the huge thread that some media outlets want people to believe, it is extremely contagious so one wrong move while getting out of the protection suits and you are screwed.

If some serious event occur, like this possible Ebola outbreak (it is still nothing comparing what could be in close future) do not forget to think about fact that we need to be ready to be completely self sufficient for some time.
In other words if S. hit the fan and this Ebola thing become really world wide event point is to be ready to stay down (low) for some time, to have all what you will need to survive without “moving” too much.
Do not go out where people are sick, and do not let people in where you are.November 9, 2014 at 5:26 pm #28690
Yes Selco If we are in a SHTF time and Ebola becomes an outbreak then we will have to stay in one place. There would be no hospitals open anywhere and doctors would not get close to Ebola patients.November 9, 2014 at 10:51 pm #28711
It looks like the CDC changed the definition of Ebola case.
NEW EBOLA CASE DEFINITION
Case Definition for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)
Here is the OLD EBOLA CASE DEFINITIONNovember 9, 2014 at 10:55 pm #28712
CDC also changed the EBOLA RISK FACTORS,
OLD EBOLA RISK FACTORS
And the NEW EBOLA RISK FACTORS
The CDC has been changing all of this under the radar(no news coverage).November 9, 2014 at 11:01 pm #28713
The most important thing for the CDC is to limit political damage and keep the public pacified.November 9, 2014 at 11:03 pm #28714
I found this to be very interesting information on an alert from Threat Journal,
“10/21 – FLASH: CDC insider tells AlertsUSA that U.S. hospitals being advised to NOT publicly report suspected / confirmed Ebola cases using privacy laws as shield.”
This maybe why we have not seen any updates on cases of Ebola in the U. S.
