Aid Group: 2ND American
Has Ebola In Liberia

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/28/2014 2:07:15 PM

BOONE, N.C. — A second American aid worker has tested positive for the Ebola virus at the same hospital in Liberia where an American doctor became infected while helping to combat an outbreak of the deadly disease, a relief group official said Sunday. Ken Isaacs, a vice president of Samaritan´s Purse, told The Associated Press that Dr. Kent Brantly — the 33-year-old medical director for the group´s Ebola care center on the outskirts of the Liberian capital of Monrovia — was stable and in very serious condition. (Snip) Isaacs identified the second American, Nancy Writebol, as a worker with an allied aid

Comments:
Brantly´s wife and children, with whom he had been living in Liberia, flew home to the U.S. a week ago, before he began showing symptoms. They are said to be symptom-free. One wonders....

I would be concerned about his family. They should be in isolation for a period of time to be absolutely sure they are not infected.

From the WHO on ebola:

The incubation period, that is, the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 days.

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs103/en/

If the family was living together as recently as a week before Dr. Brantly showed symptoms, it is possible that they have the virus, too. One would sincerely hope not, but it doesn´t seem that it can be ruled out based upon this data on ebola´s incubation period.

I don´t know what is going on with this idiotic scaremongering by the media. Fox even played it up big this morning with their TV Doctor. He cited the "Up to 90% mortality rate" ...the highest MR ir 83% and that´s for the rarest form of this disease. The current outbreak, even with very poor medical intervention is 53% . also, Ebola of all forms is hard to transmit from human to human. You practically have to wallow in Ebola victims at just the right moment in their infection to get it. And, the disease has obvious signs of manifestation...patients with Ebola in an infectious state are deathly ill - bleeding, slobbering, vomiting blood. It´s as if the disease is sending out flashing signs saying, "Avoid this person!" It´s also a grand total of only 1,203 victims (at last count) among millions, in the most squalid health conditions possible! It´s NOT coming here and even if it did, it would be quickly contained by our modern health industry and our civilized sanitary conditions.

Someone is foisting a huge agenda on the public with this scaremongering over Ebola! I want to know why!

Re #2, the Mayo Clinic disagrees re symptoms:

In Ebola virus and Marburg virus, signs and symptoms typically begin abruptly within five to 10 days of infection. Early signs and symptoms include:

Fever
Severe headache
Joint and muscle aches
Chills
Sore throat
Weakness

Over time, symptoms become increasingly severe and may include:

Nausea and vomiting
Diarrhea (may be bloody)
Red eyes
Raised rash
Chest pain and cough
Stomach pain
Severe weight loss
Bleeding from the nose, mouth, rectum, eyes and ears


http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ebola-virus/basics/symptoms/con-20031241

The earliest symptoms are very much like other illnesses. It takes a while to develop the extreme symptoms. Lab testing of blood is required. Infected persons have a large concentration of the virus in their blood.

Why be concerned? There is no cure.

Pardon me #2, but the known contagious stage is when the symptoms become obvious. In the case of the civil servant traveling from Liberia to Nigeria this transition happened during a trip and the carrier died 3 days later. Is it possible, with this particular variant, that the disease is communicable before it is more than a sore throat? Keep in mind that the civil servant did not have any contact with his sister before he went to her funeral.

Unfortunately such is the state of current affairs. A prominent Egyptian official is telling his constituency, and the world, the reason Egypt and U.S. relations are so poor is because President Obama and John Kerry demand the Severe Islamists be included in policy decisions. Egypt categorically rejects the considerations of radical Islamic extremism, and will not bow to pressure from the United States to be more accommodating toward the radicals within the Muslim Brotherhood.

Michael Sam has apparently found his next NFL job with the Dallas Cowboys. Sam, the defensive end seeking to become the NFL´s first openly gay player, will undergo a physical at the Cowboys headquarters on Wednesday, with the team poised to sign him to their 10-man practice squad, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. It would create an intriguing mix with Sam joining arguably the NFL´s highest-profiled franchise amid the enormous presence he has enjoyed for his social statement.(Snip) Yet the Cowboys could use the help for their injury-depleted defense that is challenged to improve after ranking

A Widening Food Gap: U.S.

American eating habits have improved — except among the poor, evidence of a widening wealth gap when it comes to diet. Yet even among wealthier adults, food choices remain far from ideal, a 12-year study found. (Snip)Scores for low-income adults were lower than the average and barely budged during the years studied. They averaged almost four points lower than those for high-income adults at the beginning; the difference increased to more than six points in 2009-10. Higher scores mean greater intake of heart-healthy foods including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats, and a high score means a low risk

David Cameron has given his personal backing to Brett and Naghemeh King by saying he believes the couple are trying to “do the very best for” their son Ashya. Mr Cameron, whose own son Ivan died at the age of six in 2009, refused to criticise Mr and Mrs King for smuggling their son out of a British hospital against his doctor’s wishes after deciding he would get better treatment abroad. Other senior MPs criticised the police for “criminalising” the couple and for their “heavy-handed” approach in issuing a Europe-wide warrant for their arrest.

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader
