One of the gals here has already started. Of course that had more to do with being over there recently and working in places where people caught it. I'll worry if she ends up with it. Though I highly doubt she has anything to worry about given the time frame. I think she knows that too, nonetheless that doesn't help with the whole weirdness factor.

It's not airborne, it requires fluid transfer. Unless people were puking their liquifying organs onto her or she regularly cuts herself on the ribcage of others as she reaches into a chest cavity, she probably shouldn't worry too much.

I'm not motivated enough to do anything, so I'll just wait until it gets here and kills everyone. Assuming I'm not the first to go it'll at least be semi-amusing. Beats whatever is on T.V. these days at least.

I can't imagine anything even vaguely minority-orientated gaining traction in Arizona. Bring it up to Oregon and we'll a temple. Which we'll then promptly ignore because no one here is actually as tolerant as they claim to be.

I listened to Rush today for part of my 9 hour drive. A caller called in, made sure to say that she wasn't a conspiracy theorist and anything like that, and was going all conspiracy on the doctors and people down there helping who have become infected. "How did they get infected if this isn't airborne and everyone is wearing full hazmat suits? Why isn't the media asking these questions!?".

He coddled her a bit, and half-heartedly agreed that the media should be asking these questions (cause media = evil, so he's got to agree to anything bad about them). Then went on to say that Ebola was spread through blood and mucus contact if you had open wounds yourself (failing to mention transmission through sweat, saliva, and pretty much any bodily liquid, I doubt they need open wounds). At the end before she finally gave up her little rant he mentioned that Ebola had pretty much one goal, to spread.

I kept hearing on NPR that they were less than a year away from mass producing an Ebola vaccine. That they had one working in monkeys that was moving on to human trials.

Did they just start trying for a vaccine, or is it just coincidence that the vaccine is almost ready now that this epidemic is occurring?

If my understanding was correct yes they were doing a limited trial in monkeys, but that's not something that would indicate they were a year away from mass production under normal circumstances. But given the thing kills such a high percentage of people they seem willing to cut corners, as they have already of course. Maybe they meant "in theory" or the like, I couldn't imagine them attempting mass production at this point (or even a year from now) unless there was an active major epidemic on our soil.

The piece on NPR said they had a vaccine working in monkeys, were moving on to Human trials soon and if they were successful they could be able to put it into production by next July.

Which is why I said they were cutting corners. It's not unusual for the various human trials phases to take 5-10 years. Here's a nice figure. Again, not that I blame them for rushing things along of course, a 60% untreated fatality rate certainly increases the urgency. Even having something that "kinda works" is better than nothing in that case, and its biggest benefit would probably be helping to calm any mass panic.

We could also argue that whatever version of this that starts circulating well in the human population would likely not have a 60% mortality rate however and argue for more stringent testing regardless. However that voice would likely be drowned out pretty quickly. Smiley: rolleyes

And what better human test subjects than a bunch of poor, sick, African nations? Even if they do rush the human testing, they'll have plenty of extra testing happening shortly there after.
