Ebola Virus Victims In USA

Postby Cate McCalley » Fri Aug 01, 2014 1:12 am

CNN reported two critically ill American victims of the Ebola Virus have been flown from Liberia into Atlanta, GA. for treatment at Emory University Hospital.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/31/health/ebola-outbreak/

The video clip shows the plane, but not the Airlines. This is a highly infectious viral lethal disease. The boldest strain can be transmitted under certain conditions (vapor mist) and kills within 9 days of contact. Once the virus kills it's host it returns to dormancy, but can regain life upon finding the right conditions to infect another host.

If you are planning a trip to Emory or Atlanta, be aware that although precautions are allegedly being taken, should there be an outbreak, it takes 3 to 6 months to contain it.

The FAA needs to ban all flights from the infected countries to the U.S. I can't understand the logic of bring Ebola patients into the United States. It is funny that I mentioned Ebola entering from the border, but had no idea out government would be the one delivering it.

Yes. Coincidence you mentioned it. The two they brought in are Americans that were working to contain the largest outbreak so far. Both in critical condition. Just stay out of Atlanta airport for awhile.

Isn’t “The Walking Dead” filmed in Georgia? This reminds me of something straight out of ’28 Days Later’ or something… has the entire world gone mad? Is this how ‘it’ begins? Sure, lets have an ebola party down in Atlanta…This is how the worlds population will be reduced within a very short period of TIME, by way of “VIRUS” its quick, its cheep, and if you have the road map then the obvious end of the line, as in “TERMINUS.” the End of the Line of what was in Atlanta, oddly not far from Emory. We’ll start with the cities that begin with ‘A’…. Baltimore and Boston, you’re just ahead! Chicago, wait your turn! They’ll soon hit Denver but all the NWO will be underground anyways! Is it time to move to Youngstown?

I first read the book ("The Hot Zone") about the Ebola Virus 20 years ago. It was so engrossing I took a personal day from work to finish the book. Later the movie "Outbreak" came out. Never got around to seeing it. That virus scares the crap outta me.

It's good to see another Walking Dead fan. Your comments made me laugh, and think.

Might be a good time for all you devout money makers with stock portfolios, to look into DuPont. Amazon's Military Supply department sells their protective NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) suits. The first outbreak here will have those suits flying off the shelves. Even if there's never an outbreak, it's likely some heavily invested financial institution with Capitol Hill crony connections, will convince one of them to stage a "leak". :shock:

Oh yea. I see a few some bodies capitalizing on mass fear. :lol: :lol: :lol:
