Where numerous cases of outbreaks of antibiotic resistant tuberculosis are being reported along with other childhood viruses that were pretty much under control in this country now making a comeback due to the increase in those who are not vaccinated. Measles can be a real threat to pregnant women. That is why this country started a nationwide program that was established in 1965 for the vaccination of all children over the age of nine months.

    They say Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids, most often diarrhea. They are beefing up the efforts to spray down the huts in the areas where the people seem to be getting infected and improve the practices of burial of one who has died of the disease. These are the same countries that the U.S. tax dollars has sent mega bucks to teach uncircumcised males how to wash themselves properly in order to help stop the spread of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

    A few centuries back the world was faced with the Bubonic plague. Most physicians at the time would be checking a dead body out for causes of death and then go and examine a live patient without washing their hands between the two infecting the live patient. Oddly, the washing of hands goes back to Leviticus and it was through those Scriptures that taught physicians at that time an important lesson and led to controlling the plague.

    The best defense any of us has for any outbreak like this is washing our hands frequently.
    Some other things one may want to take into consideration is take your shoes off as soon as you enter your home so you do not spread whatever you walked through that day into your home.

    Women and their handbags carry a lot of unwanted bacteria/disease etc. ....Don't place it on a countertop where you prepare food or a table where you eat.

    Use the antibacterial wipes at the grocery store to wipe off the handle of the cart you are using.

    Clean your steering wheel on your car with an antibacterial wipe frequently.

    When is the last time you cleaned the doorknobs in your home?

    When is the last time you touched a public doorknob then minutes later touched your face, eyes, mouth etc.?

    Send your kids to school with hand sanitizers and teach them the importance of using them often.

    I think that's enough examples to make the case. It's common sense that protects any of us from something like Ebola or anything else.

    I'd rather be a little fearful and paranoid than sick and dead. By then it's too late to say, "gee, guess I should've took that more seriously."

    Besides, I'm already a borderline germaphobe and take as many precautions as possible, while surveys show that half the doctors don't even wash their hands after using the potty. It's others I worry about being nasty.

    Because you are a "germaphobe", you will probably add years to your life and spare yourself some unwanted invasions into your body......

    Keep washing those hands!

    I too have read different accounts where physicians can be the crux of spreading disease from their ties they would once dress in that were never laundered daily to the use of their cell phones contaminated from one patient to the next.

    I got sick constantly when I was younger. Norovirus and flu's every year almost but much less now.

    Fortunately, many hospitals have become aware that they were the biggest concentration and spreaders of diseases (Flu, MRSA, C.Diff, CRE).

    The last few bugs I caught were visiting sick relatives in hospitals a few years ago. I've worked around doctors for 25 yrs and they're usually on call so long that's why they never changed from their college years into cleaner people. If you ever see a doctor in office with wrinkly clothes, he/she probably slept there overnight.

    I did not have my children easily. I am not made up with those spreading hips that allow easy births. There is no way to describe the birth of both my children other than miracles. Both were hard labors for them and myself. They got stuck in the birth canal and labored to the point that the child was in danger as well as myself. Both times the delivery room looked like a three ring circus of specialists ready to take over whether it be for the child or myself at a point where both of us were in danger of kicking the bucket. After the birth of my son, the attending physician came to make the rounds was wearing a pair of shoes splattered with blood. When I looked down at the shoes, my first response was "looks like you had a long night by the looks of your shoes". He said "No that was from yesterday." Ewwwweeee! Even in my twenties I knew that was just so wrong and learned a life lesson. Cheers Grip

    Re: Mount Sinai patient tested for Ebola virus

    According to the new this morning, Mount Sinai is just being over cautious. They do not believe it is Ebola. Furthermore, they are confident they are taking the proper precautions to keep it where it is. With that said, I 100% agree with everyone who did not want the uncontained virus to come to America. Why help it spread?

    The patient coming to the US isn't just sitting in coach on a ****ing Delta flight. It is contained.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Re: Mount Sinai patient tested for Ebola virus

    Among the significant revelations are that individuals from nations currently suffering from the world’s largest Ebola outbreak have been caught attempting to sneak across the porous U.S. border into the interior of the United States. At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014.

    I'm not wild about the source but it's not surprising, nor would it be if the gov't denies it.

    I am not so widely enthusiastic about that. The doctor and the nurse have both said they took proper precautions to keep themselves from contracting the virus. Now, doctors and nurses in America are going to take the proper precautions to keep themselves from contracting the virus. I didn't work in Africa, why are we so sure we can do that here in America?

    Great point on flying coach though. That was my point initially. I am so glad you could help me find the way on that.
