    They say fear is the "default mode" of the soul that dwells in darkness.

    Faith can overcome that darkness.

    it might be in advanced cases once the lungs are compromised and fill with blood. Before that...and that would be before symptoms or at least early...I dont think so.
    IMO, bodily fluids are bodily fluids.

    This round has mutated faster than expected so all bets are off.

    Greetings, WCH.

    I read somewhere that Ebola could be within two mutations of becoming an airborne problem. Since there is currently no cure - at least I haven't read that there is - and considering that it takes 21 days to start showing symptons - could it mean that anything that would normally draw large crowds, like sporting events or even the midterm elections coming up in a few weeks will be cancelled? I wonder.....

    In two cases ( in North America) it has become airborte. GOOGLE EBOLA MONKEY ACCIDENT


    But how convenient if the elections were to be postponed.

    It hasnt mutated significantly at all. Where did you read that? It is spreading faster than expected.

    That was a related but different virus that only certain species of monkeys get. It was not transmitted directly to any people except one who cut himself and had blood to blood contact. He didnt get it.

    It was not and did not become airborne.
