Note wicked in quote and so open to interpretation. You have a right to close your door against an unwanted stranger,........ but............

Quarantine all of Africa!! No one in or out until this Ebola is under control!




All travel should stop anywhere in Africa. Why wait till its too late? This isnt a cold or flu. Harsh measures for a harsh disease.



There has been an influx of immigrants into Italy from Africa for months. Over 60,000 in the past few months alone. Italy is overwhelmed and is not receiving help from other countries as these people arrive by boat and seek asylum. Most of the arrivals only spend a short time in Italy, then they are free to travel to all parts of Europe. People seem to think that if we stop flights from Africa to the US we will prevent Ebola from coming to the U.S. This is the least of our worries. Ebola will spread across Europe quickly if we don't assist Italy in determining if the African immigrants are infected. We can't place this sole responsibility on one country. Everyone needs to pull together and help. If we do detect immigrants who are infected, then what? Do we put them back on a boat to die? We need to work with countries who are being overwhelmed by the immigrants who are coming from these infected nations.

A colleague of mine is returning from Liberia this month. I am not yet sure how to receive him at the office.



MEANWHILE..................................



US STATE DEPARTMENT EBOLA ALERT

In order to help our Community better understand some of the key points about the Ebola Virus, we have consulted with our medical specialists at the US State Department and assembled this list of bullet points worded in plain language for easy comprehension. Our medical specialists remind everyone that they should be following the guidelines from the Centre for Disease Control and the World Health Organisation:
• The suspected reservoirs for Ebola are fruit bats
• Transmission to humans is thought to originate from infected bats or primates that have become infected by bats.
• Undercooked infected bat and primate (bush) meat transmits the virus to humans.
• Human to human transmission is only achieved by physical contact with a person who is acutely and gravely ill from the Ebola Virus or their body fluids.
• Transmission among humans is almost exclusively among caregiver family members or health care workers tending to the very ill.
• The virus is easily killed by contact with soap, bleach, sunlight or drying. A washing machine will kill the virus in clothing saturated with infected body fluids.
• A person can incubate the virus without symptoms for 2-21 days, the average being 5-8 days before becoming ill. THEY ARE NOT CONTAGIOUS until they are acutely ill.
• Only when ill does the viral load express itself first in the blood and then in other bodily fluids (to include vomit, faeces, urine, breast milk, semen and sweat).
• If you are walking around you are not infectious to others.
• There are documented cases from Kikwit, DRC of an Ebola outbreak in a village that had the custom of children never touching an ill adult. Children living for days in small one room huts with parents who died from Ebola did not become infected.
• You cannot contract Ebola by handling money, buying local bread or swimming in a pool
• There is no medical reason to stop flights, close borders, restrict travel or close embassies, businesses or schools.
• As always practice good hand washing techniques.
• You will not contract Ebola if you do not touch a dying person.


Please share this information with your friends and families and try not to spread panic on social media.

I really do not blame them. Ebola is truly a nasty disease, even worse than AIDS, and is very highly contagious. It's not as if there's a cure, or that it can be easily controlled. At least, from the last 'wicked' comments, they are willing to help those that are detected with the disease.

Yes I agree that Nigeria should close its borders now and so should other countries. Read my opening comment.
