    Another US patient recovers from Ebola

    An Ebola patient who's been treated in Atlanta since early September has been released, hospital officials said Monday.
    The man was released Sunday from Atlanta's Emory University Hospital, after he was determined to be free of the virus and no threat to the public.

    WHO claims that mortality from the Ebola makes "to 90%". This is lie. The Ebola reached 90% of mortality only once, in the 2003rd in Congo when from 143 diseased 128 were lost. Epidemic of the Ebola happens in the conditions of total insanitary.
    Give a rather medical care to the patient for completion of a lack of potassium, magnesium in an organism and your 90% of mortality will turn into 90% of survival. Therefore when WHO says concerning that the virus extends "from the person to the person" this is creation of a panic

    No it is not a lie, it you that is miss-representing what WHO has said. The mortality rate is 40 to 90% depending on the situation the patient is in.

    The Ebola reached 90% of mortality only once, in the 2003rd in Congo when from 143 diseased 128 were lost. Epidemic of the Ebola happens in the conditions of total insanitary.
    And that is the problem. The reason that people outside Africa have a higher chance of getting over Ebola is the hospital system. Simple diseases that are curable in the west, are deadly in Africa because of the lack of healthcare systems. That is why it was 90% in Congo.. because.. no offence to any Congolese... Congo is a **** hole of epic proportions where a simple cut will kill you.

    Give a rather medical care to the patient for completion of a lack of potassium, magnesium in an organism — and your 90% of mortality will turn into 90% of survival. Therefore when WHO says concerning that the virus extends "from the person to the person" — this is creation of a panic
    No, the ones creating panic are people like you. The reason that people are surviving is multi-fold. The first key is to replace the fluids they loose at the start.. do that and the mortality rate falls dramatically. Dehydration is a killer. Problem is that in Africa that is far from always possible and then there is the heat. Then there is the treatment it self, which has been based on drugs but the most successful so far has been blood transfusion from people who survived Ebola. That is what fixed the Norwegian, Spanish and now these 2 Americans.

    Re: Another US patient recovers from Ebola

    The second post in this thread exemplifies an intelligent response to erroneous statements.

    We became involved in the Ebola epidemic when we both flew in patients to prepared hospitals ant Duncan walked on his own into the Dallas hospital.

    It was here .. and we had already seen the horrific devastation in West Africa .. and WHO and the International Red Cross were understandably saying that the size of the epidemic in West Africa meant that Ebola would most assuredly spread to other countries (and it did) .. and Ebola is historically 60% deadly (and that's just the reported cases), and very painfully so .. and Ebola has been the subject of movies and TV shows as a deadly disease .. .. and then, "suddenly", it had reached America.

    Understandably, the majority of Americans were rightly concerned when that happened.

    So we learned on the fly, "we", the American people, from all walks of life.

    We learned that there are state-of-the-art, though very expensive treatments that can lower the mortality rate. All we need to do is make them available, though that can be a challenge.

    We learned that the virus is fragile, easily killed on surfaces via the application of basic mild household cleaning solutions, will not stay on surfaces long when exposed to sufficient UV light, puts a small viral load into saliva and other mucous at the onset when contagion among the general public at large is most likely, and has not yet mutated to airborne as the flu did (thank God!).

    We learned that our greatest vulnerability is when a person exhibiting symptoms walks into a medical facility, as the time it takes before that person is tested for Ebola and the results are positive places hospital staff at risk (as they've yet to don protective gear and isolate the patient), which is how the two healthcare workers in Dallas contracted the disease.

    We learned that even people living with a symptomatic Ebola sufferer (Duncan's four family members) may end up uninfected if they stay away from that person's blood, feces, and vomit.

    We learned that even in a country with all the technology such as ours, if a person suffering from Ebola doesn't get immediate care, even the best care applied thereafter may not save that person's life (Duncan), so we need to be sensitive to Ebola entering into our impoverished areas, how quickly we can get appropriate care to these people, or we'll indeed have a West African type epidemic on our hands.

    The American people, at large, are learning, and are rightly intelligently concerned about Ebola and our ability for all, including the poor and uninsured, to get life-saving treatment and thus prevent a "caregiver's disease" epidemic, and our hospitals to be adequately prepared for walk-in Ebola patients, and to prevent West Africans or anyone exposed to the disease from bringing it here during their incubation periods, etc.

    We are rightly intelligently concerned, in all aspects of this matter.

    So we're learning .. on the fly .. even the CDC and its managers are learning .. and we now have an Ebola Czar to help hospitals focus on preparing for walk-in Ebola patients to prevent their staff from contracting the disease .. and to address keeping infected people from other epidemic-ravaged countries from flying here and roaming dangerously free, spreading the disease to Americans, especially poor Americans.

    May we continue to learn, sufficient to avoid the kind of epidemic that continues to tragically ravage West Africa.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Re: Another US patient recovers from Ebola

    The ebola pandemic began in late February in the former French colony of Guinea while UN agencies were conducting nationwide vaccine campaigns for three other diseases in rural districts. The simultaneous eruptions of this filovirus virus in widely separated zones strongly suggests that the virulent Zaire ebola strain (ZEBOV) was deliberately introduced to test an antidote in secret trials on unsuspecting humans
