    Ebola outbreak in Congo over

    BBC News - Ebola: Democratic Republic of Congo says its outbreak is over

    A three-month Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has ended after claiming at least 49 lives, the country's health minister says.

    Felix Kabange said no new cases had been registered since 4 October, though he warned against complacency.

    The country's outbreak is unrelated to the one in West Africa which has claimed more than 5,000 lives.

    Ebola was first detected in 1976 near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    Saturday's announcement came 42 days after the last new Ebola case in the country - Ebola outbreaks are usually declared over when two full cycles of the virus' 21 day incubation period finish without further infections.


    Ebola can and will be beaten, it is not going to infect and kill millions of Americans.

    This once again proves the voices of doom on your monitor, your TV screen and your radio and even on this very forum are outright lying to you in a bid to sell a story and cause hysteria.

    These people have acted in a irresponsible manner.

    Well thank goodness for that, that the outbreak in Congo is over. Never did buy into the inevitable doom and gloom, but acknowledged that a risk did exist that it could happen. Just not very likely.

    This has nothing to do with the outbreak in West Africa.

    More good news:

    Ebola virus level falls after treatment by San Diego company Aethlon dialysis machine | UTSanDiego.com

    The patient, a Ugandan doctor who had treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, has recovered from the potentially fatal disease.

    Before treatment with Aethlon’s Hemopurifier, the patient had 400,000 virus particles per milliliter of blood. After the dialysis, which lasted about six and a half hours, the “viral load” dropped to 1,000 per milliliter and never rose above that level again, said Dr. Helmut Geiger. He is chief of nephrology at Frankfurt University Hospital in Germany, where the patient received his Ebola care.
    God damn all those socialist European countries funding scientific research!

    Ebola cases plummet in Liberian hot spot as aid groups gain community trust - The Washington Post

    The number of new Ebola patients has fallen to practically zero in one of Liberia’s hardest-hit areas because aid workers gained the trust of the community so the sick were treated quickly and the dead were buried safely, according to a report released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    No it doesn't, but it shows how that outbreaks can be contained when the right actions are taken and there is a swift response, unlike in West Africa where that did not take place.
