I know,remember I studied medicine and know very well what this virus can do. I would not even trust a vaccine for it.August 6, 2014 at 5:39 pm #21227
Personally Im not very concerned about Ebola because as long as its not airborne, we should be fine. I just think its important for us preppers to monitor situations like these very closely. We can learn a lot from it. What procedures do medical experts use, how do governments react or how do they try to downplay the situation.
Crazy fact: When a man survives Ebola he can transmit the disease for another 7 weeks through his semen… Imagine a happy survivor coming home to his wife…
Ebola does seems to be a pretty devilish disease. Lets wish for the best of all those affected.

“officials explained the gravity of the situation in their countries, where hundreds lie dead in the streets.
According to SIM, West Africa has counted 1,711 diagnoses and 932 deaths, already, which could represent only a small fraction of the actual number. “We believe that these numbers represent just 25-50 percent of what is happening,” said Isaacs.”August 8, 2014 at 1:08 pm #21382
This is bad news. The dead in the street is just going to make things more grave.August 8, 2014 at 3:26 pm #21383
There is no doubt that this has the potential to start a panic here in America even if not truly warranted.August 8, 2014 at 3:28 pm #21384

Get prepared now so that you do not end up with no food and water if it becomes even a small pandemic.August 8, 2014 at 6:15 pm #21393
This indeed could turn into a panic. I am now at ‘code green,’ due to the possibility of news emerging that could panic the masses. Keep your ears open.August 8, 2014 at 11:05 pm #21406
There’s a patient in a Brampton Ontario hospital that is undergoing tests to see if they have Ebola now. If they do it’s the first case here in Canada.

Want to see something messed up? Scroll down here and see how rather well one of the infected US guys was protected while treating infected people. http://globalmediabuzz.com/news/2014/july/ebola-virus-kills-top-doctor.html

Exactly what my concerns and comments have been. The contagion level is severe.August 10, 2014 at 4:16 pm #21492
Even an airborne virus would have a hard time infecting someone protected like the doctor was. 74 you are right that the contagion level is higher then what they are telling us.August 10, 2014 at 7:15 pm #21509
The fomite contagion problem is off the scale. When they quit using a hospital because they can’t disinfect the surfaces – thats a situation gone fubar. These people in the epidemic areas are all potentially carriers of the virus on the skin and everywhere else. They want to flood the area with medical people it needs to be understood there is no return ticket. Alas the politicians are still living in the global village fantasy. They seem to think there’s an on-off switch they can use whenever they feel like it. Or they can manipulate numbers endlessly. Less than a thousand dead so far, 3 months from now a million? A Billion? What did the French politician say to Obama… we’ve got 500 days . Is this what he meant. Do they already know the outcome.August 11, 2014 at 1:21 am #21553
Brulen, I think the 500 days is the Economical Collapse is coming and they know how much time we have before all hell breaks. They are doing anything and everything to keep us thinking about everything else and not the economy.
Numbers don’t lie and they know when is the end of the economy.August 11, 2014 at 2:49 am #21555
