[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by Upside: [qb] A number of years ago I had to pick up a friends Uncle at the airport. Got to talking to him on the way back and it turns out he was a researcher for the CDC. This was during the height of the AIDS scare so I asked him about it. He claimed that in spite of all the press hoopla the CDC wasn't all that concerned about AIDS simply because of the methods of transmission, you had to almost try to get it. He went on to describe a scenario much like we're seeing today. He claimed that something like this was the CDC's greatest fear, an exotic, previously localized virus, or a yet unseen virus breaking out of its boundaries and spreading to more populated and modernized areas. He also said the CDC believed that once something like this hit our shores it would already be too late, containment would be impossible. [/qb][/QUOTE]it may be possble to contain it (here) still. we'll know in the next few days.... here's the timeline on Duncan (or patient 0) Sept 19: Duncan flies out of Monrovia, Liberia Sept 20: Lands in Dallas, Texas, after changing Sept 24: Duncan starts experiencing symptoms Sept 25: Goes to Texas Health Presbyterian hospital in Dallas - but is sent home Sept 25-27: Symptoms worsen at home Sept 28: Duncan taken to hospital after vomiting. CDC warned of possible Ebola case Sept 29: Beset by projectile vomiting and diarrhea, Duncan asks to be put in a diaper Sept 30: CDC confirms Ebola diagnosis Oct 1: Sepsis sets in - but Duncan tries to stay upbeat, asking to watch a movie. He asks to eat solid food, but changes his mind. Oct 2: He asks for food, eats a few saltine crackers and a mouthful of Sprite. But blood is appears in his urine; he is given stronger drugs Oct 3: Doctors request experimental drug brincidofovir as Duncan keeps worsening Oct 4: Duncan has multiple organ failure. New drug arrives and he is given it Oct 6: Duncan's family, including his mother, come to visit him. His face is described as 'like a mask', some say he looks dead already Oct 7: Family continue to watch Duncan via close-circuit cameras Oct 8: Early in the morning Duncan's heartrate slows to less than 50 beats per minute. At 7:51am he is pronounced dead we aren't sure when he was exposed, but i tlooks like it takes about a week for ebola to get goin' we don't know when the nurses got exposed so it's not possible to get an exact time.....
