The FACTS on Ebola…
Well you know something is up when the Yankee State Media (CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, Fox News, etc.) begin to parade a bunch of so-called experts around TV who claim that Ebola is a safe and harmless disease. One so-called CNN “expert” even had the audacity to claim that you could share a soda with some infected with Ebola and be perfectly fine.
This is the biggest bunch of bull-shit I have ever heard. Don’t believe it. Ebola is one of the most contagious diseases known to man and what is worse nobody knows exactly how its transmitted. Heck the medical community doesn’t even know if the bio-suits work on Ebola. That Texas doctor who got infected, got infected through his suit. So either his filter was bad, he got a scrape or puncture somehow, or the virus came through his level II bio-suit.
Whats even worse is that Ebola is a disease that can be transmitted between species. For example lets say John Doe has Ebola and vomits on the side of the road somewhere. John Doe is eventually herded into a vacuum bubble somewhere, but his vomit remains on the side of the road where a wild animal eats it. That’s what wild animals tend to do. Let’s say that this wild animal is a dog. Well the dog would then catch Ebola by ingesting the vomit. The dog goes home to its owners where it drools and licks its owners, thus spreading the disease to them.
Its that easy. To date researchers have confirmed that Ebola can infect humans, primates, canines, felines, birds, and many different types of wild game (deer, hog, etc.).
So what else is known about Ebola?
Not much. How Ebola manages to first infect humans is poorly understood. Primates like monkeys and apes are possible agents of transmission (also called vectors), although birds, rodents, bats, pigs, and insects may be more likely to transmit the disease. The virus can even be transmitted to dogs, although they don’t seem to get sick.
Ebola appears to be transmitted through saliva and other bodily fluids, even sweat. The practice of relatives and workers washing a body before burial may have helped spread the disease. A 2012 Canadian study suggested that the virus may also be transmitted in air droplets. Given the highly contagious nature of the disease, this would be big trouble if true, but hasn’t been proven.
What does Ebola virus do to its victims? Ebola causes a hemorrhagic fever with a 25-90% death rate, much higher than even the worst of the influenza pandemics of the past century. Compare this to a 2.5% death rate from the great Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, and 0.1% from routine influenza outbreak.
Symptoms begin presenting about 2 weeks after exposure. Ebola patients develop the sudden onset of what first appears to be influenza: Aches and pains, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, fever and chills, and malaise are commonly seen at this stage. Nausea is noted, often accompanied by abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting.
Later on, The central nervous system becomes affected: Severe headaches, altered mental status, and seizures ensue, sometimes resulting in the patient going into a coma.
Evidence of disorders in blood clotting are seen in advanced stages of the disease.
• Spotty Rashes
• Broken blood vessels in the skin
• Collections of blood under the skin after injections
• Bloody vomit or sputum
• Spontaneous nosebleeds
• Bleeding from gums
• Blood in bowel movements
Once bleeding disorders occur, the likelihood of survival is slim. Although deaths from severe hemorrhage have occurred in women giving birth, multiple organ failure leading to shock is the usual caus
