Spanish nurse with Ebola

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta (CDC) reports that doctors and nurses are fleeing the Ebola hot zones in Liberia amid fears that the virus is more easily transmitted than first assumed.

A report conducted by doctors at the CDC noted: “Before the epidemic, six physicians served all four counties. At the time of the evaluation, only three physicians remained; the others had left Liberia because of the epidemic."

This report comes amid news that a Spanish nurse is the first to be diagnosed with Ebola outside of West Africa.

The CDC has assured the public that the risk of catching Ebola is small if the patient is not exhibiting symptoms. But that doesn't explain how trained doctors and nurses who are dressed from head to toe in protective suits are contracting Ebola so easily.

Dr. C.J. Peters said he isn't sure that Ebola isn't spread through the air. "We just don't have the data to exclude it," he said.

Nurses in America are advising the CDC that hospitals aren't prepared to treat Ebola patients if an outbreak should occur here.

"A lot of staff feel they aren't adequately trained," said Micker Samios, an ER nurse at Medstar Washington Hospital Center in Washington D.C.

Also of concern to nurses is the lack of information regarding sexual transmission of the Ebola virus. There is a small window (as many as several days) between transmission of the virus and the beginning of symptoms when the virus is built up enough in the bloodstream to be transmitted through semen -- even though the patient is not showing symptoms.

The first Ebola patient diagnosed on U.S. soil, Thomas Duncan, is on a respirator unable to breathe on his own at a Texas hospital. He was given an experimental antibody serum 10 days after his admission to the ICU.

The current outbreak of Ebola is the largest since the virus was first discovered in central Africa in 1976.

      Listen. The government wants to put out a vaccine so them and big pharma will stay winning. As one of the Rises said on Twitter, if the serum is not immediately available, how come they had it immediately for that doctor? At first they said the serum wouldn't work on Duncan, why give it to him. I'm more side-eying the fact they left his family in the Ebola house for FOUR days until a church member let them use their place. We guinea pigs. Not black necessarily, but we the American peoples. Watch they gone have a E68 vaccine next. Call me crazy, Jmo

      @UNSHAKE
      "Actually, some men do this…..they tell a woman how they roll upfront. For example if all they want is sex, they tell them this.

      If this is how you roll, why get a woman’s hopes up if she wants a monogamous mate? And I never said day one. I meant like in the beginning stages or first phase.

      Furthermore, why is it that you can do this stuff, but your woman can’t?

      "
      __________________________

      I know this happens a small fraction of the time. Most of the time it doesn't. The same way women don't tell men they are willing to sleep with them because they find them attractive. Instead, women wait and see how things play out BECAUSE IT IS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE TO DO THAT. (yes I know some do tell guys up front but let's not sit here and play like that happens the majority of the time)

      Women need to stop asking for this foolishness. It's like asking someone playing poker to reveal their hand. That's not to their advantage. No one does that. SMH. Just foolishness.

      And she can't do what I do (and vice versa) cause I'm a dude and she ain't. :shrugs: That's how the ball bounces sometimes.

      "The Ebola virus has also been detected in breast milk, urine and semen. In a convalescent male, the virus can persist in semen for at least 70 days; one study suggests persistence for more than 90 days."

      Not a divorcee. I've been in and out of "relationships." Not sure how you would "count" them. But it's always been all good. I can't even say anything bad about most of the women I've dealt with and I'm still friends with all of them.

      I'm pretty sure when the media first started talking about Ebola this is what I heard & than a few days later they changed what they said on how it's transmitted. Now they're back saying what I'm certain I originally heard.

      Its a VIRUS. Any VIRUS will have the same timeline. HIV, the FLU, etc...

    • Rib of Chan

      At first they said the serum wouldn’t work on Duncan, why give it to him
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      Alot of drugs are used for more than one ailment. BUT they don’t KNOW what XXX works for until they try to use it to combat something else. Called multi-indicational drug usage. For example: Humira. Was developed and tested as a strictly arthritis drug. But comes to find out it can be used for digestion ailments (Crohn's disease/Colitis) all the way to being used for skin disorders.

      @Man,

      To an extent, I get what you are saying. I just think that people need to be on the same page about some things, like what type of relationship they are looking for (monogamous, open, etc). No point in lying about that. In addition, asking for a a man or woman to be honest about things they feel they need to know is not foolishness. If they ask the question, then they should be prepared for the answer.

      Agreed! The government don't put out nothing they can't cure. The sad thing is that the poor will always suffer. It's scary in any event, folks start coughing, you duckin, running cause the government and their bull. We have enough to deal with, poverty is at the top of the list. Now you have to worry about getting some new ish?

      I'm No conspiracy theorist... The Black Plague took out 1/3 of Europe. You say, "we have better technology, and supplies." I say, if this is nature's disease and not a one of those man-made ones then this can get serious–as serious as a tsunami, earthquake, or hurricane. Nature's a bad sucker!
