#3032934 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

Posted by catfang on 20 October 2014 - 11:44 AM

WHO declared Nigeria Ebola free today. If we don't have any new cases by Halloween we should be good. Crisis averted.

 

Still need to solve the crisis in W. Africa though, or there will always be the threat of someone coming here symptomatic with the virus. Looks like they are averaging about 100 new cases a day.  This is data without considering Liberia, which is so screwed right now they aren't reporting any longer.

The cellar in the food bank may have been a little contrived, but I enjoyed it. Some of the best zombie-effects of the entire series I think. I liked the church lady that Gabriel ran from, nice touch I thought. 

 

And yes, Bob is totally tainted meat. Can't wait for that scene to unfold.

Ooooohhh weeeee Sunday is shaping up, Cam and our offence is looking as good as it has for 3 years and we're going toe to toe against a GOAT QB in Rodgers. Man I love watching good defences but two creative offences going point for point will be so exciting. 

 

You know our offensive coordinator is Mike Shula, right?

I have to assume the body(s) of the deceased are incinerated.

 

In the US, yes. Which is why the governor of Louisiana balking at the incinerated medical waste being disposed of in LA is ridiculous.  But then again we're talking about Louisiana.

 

Speaking of third world countries, I think the bodies are still being buried in Liberia, which, I read yesterday, has run out of body bags and is in desperate need of gloves.

Hopefully this is it as far as the virus spreading in this country. If everything is quiet by the time Halloween rolls around we're good.

#3023415 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

I guess it turns out the Dallas hospital was just a mess. Atlanta had dealt with (now) 4 patients without infecting themselves. They were doing physicals in Dallas like Duncan had a twisted ankle. Unbelievable.

 

well to be fair, the Dallas hospital doesn't have a dedicated biocontainment facility like Emory, although Dallas did screw up repeatedly.

 

There are three others besides Emory in the US, with a grand total of 19 beds, maybe even only 11 since one director says he can only  handle two cases at once.

Of the thousands of hospitals in the United States, only four have biocontainment units and years of preparation in handling highly infectious disease like Ebola. But between those four hospitals, there are only about 19 beds in the specialized areas: 10 at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha; three at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta; three at Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Montana; and an estimated three at National Institutes of Health in Maryland.

Latest situation report from WHO. About 600 new cases in the last five days. Interesting to see the discrepancies noted in Liberia. Depressing to hear that the situation overall is deteriorating.  Good news about Nigeria and Senegal, however.

Data for epidemiological week 41 are incomplete, with missing data for 12 October from Liberia. This 

reflects the challenging nature of data gathering in countries with widespread and intense EVD 
transmission. These challenges remain particularly acute in Liberia, where there continues to be a 
mismatch between the relatively low numbers of new cases reported through official clinical 
surveillance systems on one hand, and reports from laboratory staff and first responders of large 
numbers of new cases on the other. Efforts are ongoing to reconcile different sources of data, and to 
rapidly scale-up capacity for epidemiological data gathering throughout each country with 
widespread and intense transmission. 
 
It is clear, however, that the situation in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone is deteriorating, with 
widespread and persistent transmission of EVD. An increase in new cases in Guinea is being driven by 
a spike in confirmed and suspected cases in the capital, Conakry, and the nearby district of Coyah. In 
Liberia, problems with data gathering make it hard to draw any firm conclusions from recent data.
There is almost certainly significant under-reporting of cases from the capital Monrovia. There does 
appear to have been a genuine fall in the number of cases in Lofa district, but a concerted effort will 
be required to sustain that drop in cases and translate it into an elimination of EVD in that area. In 
Sierra Leone, intense transmission is still occurring in the capital Freetown and the surrounding 
districts.

Damn what the hell?? 2nd nurse called CDC and was told don't worry??

 

http://www.cbsnews.c...-several-times/

 

 

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn't 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn't officially fall into the group of "high risk" and was allowed to fly.

Weren't there essentially two explosions? One that rattled the guys in the troth and Carols? Or it was Carols just not presented in sequence?

 

The way I took it, it was the same explosion, just from different perspectives.

Here's something to make you shudder.  Better hope that this doesn't make its way to India.

Yes, that is a man bathing in the Ganges with a dead body floating past.
