I'm just not that scared of contracting this shit. I'm actually a lot more worried about one of my neighbors going jihad that I am about catching Ebola. I'll go to school tomorrow, go to the store when I need shit and associate with whoever I have to.

Who's with me on this?

not as isolated when you are 20 miles from the known case in the US. How many did he infect in the 6 days before being treated? How many will they infect?

Keep in mind that in countries where Ebola is the worst, the indigenous personnel break into the clinic wards and steal the bloody sheets to resell on the street. The difference in the standard of sanitation and medical care is profound.

Sense. Ebola isn't a real threat here.

They likely have already tracked down almost everyone who has been in contact with this guy after he started showing symptoms and told them to isolate themselves.

His family might be screwed, though.

It concerns me.

I am a paramedic and I have had plenty of other people's blood on me. Not on purpose, but it happens. Furthermore, I see a lot of sick people before the hospital does.
This guy got into the country somehow. Others can and may have come in also.

But... every day I'm surrounded by hundreds of nasty fucks that never learned how to cover their mouth when they cough, wash their hands or otherwise keep their bodily secretions to themselves. That's a fuck of a lot harder to stop than some nutjob is a knife.

The Persians are the kind who refuse to talk to the police after a guy honor kills his daughters and cover for him while he escapes the country. The Pakistanis are the kind who wear the the long shirts and the taqiyahs.

In poor countries where medical care is iffy at best. How would Ebola (a very delicate virus,) fare in first world medical conditions? Obviously Ebola is some serious shit and would kill a lot of people, it's not the widespread panick inducing stuff some would have you believe.

Where the problem would be is stupid as shit people going to work, school, shopping spreading it unknowingly. Given how most people can't stay the fuck home when they get the flu, that's were we would get boned.

Now, if that shit was airborne? SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING!!!

No, we've had three other people transported back to the U.S. after contracting the disease, and they've all survived right? Right.

I'm a semi hermit anyways.

I work from home, I only take one lecture class at school and it only has 12 other students in it and I shop late at night when there are fewer people at the store. I don't contact sick people ever, I don't handle people's blood or shit and I don't contact dead bodies. I'm probably good.

707,000 us hep patients
379,000 us HIV/aids patients
000,001 us Ebola patient.

I'm no more worried about blood borne Ebola than I am about Magic Johnson. People have their panties in a twist over this because the people controlling the media want us to have our panties in a twist over this rather than focusing on something else they don't want us thinking about, like, the national debt, or Syria, or any number of legitimate issues.

I am concerned, but not brooding about it.
I have researched many papers for my wife when she was taking her medical classes. Mad Cow Disease, or more appropriately bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) disturbs me more than this- especially since the incubation period can be 10 years after exposure. One book I read about it concluded that consuming meat from an infected cow wasn't necessary. The bone, etc. that is used for fertilizer can theoretically cause it to be carried on plants- like the lettuce in your taco.

The ambulance this victim was transported in was in service for three days after taking him to the hospital. Already exhibiting symptoms, mind you. All crews who manned the thing during that time have been asked to stay home with pay for 21 days. Not under quarantine though. The Dallas county EMS has quarantined the vehicle awaiting instructions on how to decontaminate the thing.

Party on, Garth.

Like others, I'm keeping an eye on it but it's well down the list of my concerns at this point. That could certainly change if things get crazy over the next month, but so far there's one case (which we all knew was coming, and there will be more) and also we are 3 for 3 as far as treatment and survival goes counting the patients that were transported in. If it was airborne it would have more of my attention because it would be impossible to keep from spreading.

Seems like every 5 years or so there is an "extremely deadly disease" that makes an appearance and the media hypes it up to be Armageddon. Unfortunately these diseases do prove to be quite deadly in small, poverty-stricken countries that have suspect healthcare. Fortunately for the U.S., they usually kind of stall out when they reach here because we have the capability to treat and contain them. I expect this one to be no different, but I'm keeping my eye on it until I know for sure.

My only real concern is that I have a pregnant wife who works at a hospital. However, she works in the cardiac unit and we also live in a small rural town with no airport.
Link Posted: 9/30/2014 11:37:52 PM EST
I am paying attention to it, but I'm not worried yet. If no other people who this guy was in contact with come down with it, then it's fine. If it turns out that he infected somone(s) and they in turn infect some more people, then yes I will start becoming concerned. Hopefully they have done a good job of identifying people he may have infected and have them staying away from others.
