    Not trying to scare anyone, but this has got to be as bad as Dr.'s in Africa are saying! On the news they are saying "nothing to worry about"

    Report: Ebola patient to speak at Emory news conference




    


    By Mike Morris
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Emory University Hospital officials have scheduled a news conference for late Thursday morning to discuss the impending release of the two Ebola patients who were transferred to the facility earlier this month.
    Channel 2 Action News reported that one of those patients, Dr. Kent Brantly, will make a statement at the 11 a.m. press conference, and that Emory officials will also give updates on the second patient, missionary Nancy Writebol.
    Brantly is expected to leave the hospital with his family following the news conference, according to Channel 2.
    Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, the humanitarian organization Brantly and Writebol were working with, issued a statement early Thursday, saying, “Today, I join all of our Samaritan’s Purse team around the world in giving thanks to God as swe celebrate Dr. Kent Brantly’s recovery from Ebola and release from the hospital.”
    Brantly was transferred from Liberia to Emory on August 2, and Writebol arrived two days later.The two were infected while working in a missionary clinic outside Liberia’s capital.
    An Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter and photographer will be at the news conference.

    Default Nigeria: ‘Cured Ebola victims can be re-infected’

    If this is true, then there is no immunity build up. And if you can be re-infected, well the thought goes so many ways that it scares the heck outta me. Like no burn out of the virus over there in the slums and they just keep re-infecting each other until it jumps country, etc...And Ebola is just a bit different than influenza like the guy below is trying to make the two similar. ugh!

    Nigeria: ‘Cured Ebola victims can be re-infected’

    Thanks to Lucie Lecomte for sending the link to this report on NigerianEye.com: ‘Cured Ebola victims can be re-infected’.

    A member of the World Health Organisation committee of experts on Ebola Virus Disease in West Africa, Prof. Victor Inem, has said cured Ebola victim could be re-infected with the same virus if fresh contact was made with carriers.
    He stated this on Wednesday at a one-day train the trainer workshop on Ebola prevention and control organised by the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital for the medical stakeholders.
    Speaking on the overview of the EVD Outbreak in West Africa Sub-Region, he said, “Even when victims of EVD have been cured, there are still possibilities that they can re-contract the virus if they do not avoid body fluids from sufferers and animals believed to be carriers of the virus.
    “It is very possible for cured victims to re-contract the virus when he brings himself closer again with sufferers through sex, their other body fluids, eating of some animals which are reservoirs of the virus or through processes of burning victims.”
    Inem cautioned that cured victims should distance themselves from sufferers, avoid sex or wear condoms. He warned against embalmment and unnecessarily prolonged funeral services in parts of Nigeria where corpses were often touched or kissed over and over again.
    Inem said the current panic should not be over-blown because there have been several epidemics since Influenza in 1918 and that “this Ebola epidemic will equally subside and go,” he said.
    Earlier, the chief medical director of UCTH, Dr. Thomas Agan, said there was dire need to be on the alert even though the EVD was not in the state.
    Agan commended the Federal Government for taking proactive measures, adding that the UCTH was taking all the necessary protective measures in case it was confronted with the challenge of the virus.

    IF true (and I sure would like to know how they know this- studies? Actual cases?), then a vaccine isn't possible, either.

    Default Monkey Meat

    Video by Vice News --

    VICE News visited Liberia, where many feel the new outbreak began, borne from the bushmeat markets of Lofa. Western scientists feel that the consumption and preparation of meat from monkeys, fruit bats, and other forest animals is behind the transmission of Ebola

    The information has been confirmed by sources close to the administration of the CHU Tokoin this Wednesday, August 20, 2014.

    Filipino arrived in Lome on board a ship whose final destination is Morocco. The ship arrived at the port of Lomé from Nigeria. According to early diagnosis of the patient who has attracted attention because of its incessant bleeding and vomiting, the owner suffers from chronic malaria ungroomed.

    Looking for the blip I saw about a "cured" ebola patient that just dropped dead from it in the last week. Until I find it, there's this from the WHO.
