Current Issues: In Diseases, Pandemics and Viruses (Ebola)

#1 Post by Andy F » Wed May 22, 2019 5:03 pm

Florida Maquis has been covering the Ebola "news" and he does a good job, using relevant sources which I trust.
If it's medical, I pay attention.
The Ebola issue, is worse then most people realize.

Ebola virus is killed using a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered hospital disinfectant [PDF – 278KB] external icon with a label claim for a non-enveloped virus. On dry surfaces, like doorknobs and countertops, the virus can survive for several hours. However, in body fluids, like blood, the virus can survive up to several days at room temperature. ... listl_.pdf
Lysol products (tub and tile)
Clorox products with bleach

Transmission page
Ebola Signs and Symptoms
Severe headache
Muscle pain
Abdominal (stomach) pain
Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising)

While in an area affected by Ebola, it is important to avoid the following:
Contact with blood and body fluids (such as urine, feces, saliva, sweat, vomit, breast milk, semen, and vaginal fluids).
Items that may have come in contact with an infected person’s blood or body fluids (such as clothes, bedding, needles, and medical equipment).
Funeral or burial rituals that require handling the body of someone who died from EVD.
Contact with bats and nonhuman primates or blood, fluids and raw meat prepared from these animals (bushmeat) or meat from an unknown source.
Contact with semen from a man who had EVD until you know the virus is gone from the semen.

There is currently no vaccine licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to protect people from Ebola virus.

Treatment is supportive, IV Fluids, Cardiovascular medications, anti-Emetics, anti-Diarrheal, etc.

Somalia is right near CHAD, Africa. Somali Muslim immigrants are here, still coming here, where the largest Somali community (that I know of) is in Ilhan Omar's area, Minnesota. By the way, do you remember about the couple dozen Somali's who killed the white people there, using hammers to bash in their heads?
It wasn't in the "news" now was it?
