What is EBOLA?
Ebola Haemorrhagic Fever, caused by the Ebola Virus as seen through an electron microscope, look like long filaments, sometimes branched or intertwined together.
The virus particle contains a single stranded RNA molecule. Scientist have speculated the viruses attack cells by producing proteins that suppress the immune system, allowing the reproduction of the virus to continue at will and unaffected. There are five varieties of the Ebola virus, four kinds humans can contract.
They are : Ebola-Zaire, Ebola-Sudan, Ebola-Ivory Coast and Ebola-Bundibugyo.
Ebola-Reston is the only strain of the virus that is found in only primates alone.
How is EBOLA Transmitted?
Ebola has been hypothesized by researchers, that the first person to gain contact with the virus must have contracted it from an infected animal. Possibly coming in contact with the animals feces, vomit, urine, saliva or even semen would transfer the living virus. Once a human has the infection, the virus can spread many ways to other humans and animals much the same way.
- contact with infected blood or all body fluids
- by open wounds
- syringe’s or any puncture objects that may have had infected blood or fluid on it
- bitten by infected animal
Ebola is not transferable in an airborne manner. Some have suggested we need to prepare for an airborne mutated version of Ebola that could reach the United States. This is nothing more than delusional thinking or a type of disinformation created to induce panic and the need for more vaccines. I have included a video below that illustrates exactly my point.
HIV may be similar to EBOLA in the respect they both originated in Africa and are transmitted virtually the same way. If the HIV virus gets exposed to air it will die. It must live in body fluids and be passed through body fluids. Ebola acts in the same manner however it has a 54% mortality rate once contracted, under medical supervision of course. THE OUTBREAK
The largest Ebola outbreak in history is occurring right now in 2014, in many different countries of West Africa. These countries include the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Ivory Coast, Gabon, Sudan, Uganda, and the Republic of the Congo. The United States has never had a confirmed Human case of Ebola only a couple primates that were in a controlled laboratory in Texas. Definitely no Ebola Outbreak or risk of one on the horizon in the U. S. Just over hyped speculation by major news media outlets. It seems to be the vast majority of cases are in West Africa, with a slightly different strain in the Philippines.
The Center For Disease Control, (CDC) in conjunction with The World Health Organization (WHO) and other governmental agencies, have put into effect the Emergency Operations Center. Serving as a command center to combat the virus, they help coordinate the technical assistance needed in the infected countries such as communications systems and networks and by helping under developed countries collect, gather and analyze data so that the best informed life saving decisions can be made at crucial moments. Due to the technological infrastructure they posses, it is very likely they can slow down and even eradicate the Ebola virus. The CDC has also sent groups of Public Health Experts to West Africa to help educate and manage all medical staff and civilians.
Obama is sending 3,000 U.S. military personnel to West Africa so they can assist in medical training, supervise and distribute all of the U.S. aid going over there and finally, to build more medical care clinics.
As of September 15, 2014:
- The number of estimated Ebola deaths
- Total number of Ebola cases this year as of Sept. 15, 2014.
