Apparently the Guy who went to the Hospital in Dallas with the symptoms was turned away by the Hospital initially even though the Staff knew he had just returned from Liberia!!!. Isolated when he returned a couple of days later seriously ill , his home has been decontaminated and it is thought 100 , including children , could be affected.

this disease is caught pretty much the same way as the HIV virus. it's not airborne. seems to me there's a lot of unecessary panic going on.

It may not be airborne but it must be a lot easier to be infected than HIV. HIV does not cause loads of rotting bodies in the street after a few days (thank God), nor does it always make people vomit which Ebola does quite quickly.

Over 3,300 deaths and rising Marky is cause for concern, I think for the following reasons:-

1. Zmapps used on the American Doctor worked but there is not enough to go round and won't be for quite a while.

2. The biggest obstacle is that it developed in Africa which has a poor record for hygiene and the Villagers are not burying their dead.

3. Even in the U.S. alarm bells did not ring when the Guy who fell ill after a visit to Liberia is now in a critical condition. It is estimated 100 people he has had contact with in the U.S.could be affected.

4.The latest is that there is a theory that tobacco leaves could be a cure if it works there are enough of those to treat millions.

Thanks Marky , let's hope they are right , the Plague affected thousands and I cannot believe that in a Country like the USA the guy first of all visits Liberia and when he tells the Hospital because he was ill they sent him home !!!!! It was only when his condition worsened that they put him in isolation.

It'snot going to be a World epidemic but it will take a while for the US to produce Zmapps and this will mean more deaths in Africa, Liberia
is the worst affected .You have to admire the Doctors and Nurses who go there to help and risk getting infected , over 100 Doctors so far have died .

Sky News Reporter visits Monrovia in Liberia

Ebola Deaths Hidden As Fear Grips Liberia
Sky News Special Correspondent Alex Crawford gains rare access to burial teams doing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.

Video: Liberia Gripped By Ebola Virus Fear

By Alex Crawford, Special Correspondent, Monrovia

Liberia's few ebola treatment centres are overwhelmed with the sick and dying - with patients sharing beds and the dead laying near the desperately ill.

The country has accounted for more than half of the world's deaths from the latest ebola outbreak in West Africa and despite assurances from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf that it is under control, evidence on the ground seen by Sky News appears to suggest otherwise.

Whole communities are gripped with fear about the virus - and terrified citizens prefer to die alone, unaided because of the stigma attached to admitting to the disease.

Liberia
Dozens of ebola victims are dying in their homes in Monrovia, increasing the chances of the virus spreading.

And official numbers of victims are almost certainly unrepresentative of the real death count because of the lack of co-ordination and nationwide spread of the disease.

Gallery: The Desperate Fight To Contain The Ebola Outbreak

A man rests outside the clinic.



Small teams of about half a dozen workers set out daily to retrieve the ebola dead - most of whom have died after suffering in secret.

Their relatives are reluctant to admit ebola has caused the death, as this invariably invites ostracism from their communities and targets them as potential virus carriers.

The body recovery squads - still called "burial teams" despite government orders that all ebola victims be cremated - are doing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.

They take extreme precautions, wearing multiple protective clothing layers along with goggles, boots, gloves and head coverings to try to stay safe.

Video: Ebola: A Global Threat
Head of Team Three, Mark Vayowan, told Sky News: "There's no day comes that people don't die in their house. Every day, every blessing day."

There's simply too much work for the recovery teams to do, not enough hours in the day for them to track down the dead.

Even as they were picking up the latest corpses from the Elwa Treatment Centre, a young man was sobbing outside.

He cried: "Oh my God, I was just bringing a phone for my sister. Now they say she's died. What am I going to do? She has children..."

Video: Ebola Brit Recalls Horror Of Virus
George Nyumah, like so many of Liberia's citizens, is frantically worried about catching the virus.

So the five children his sister cares for are left alone to fend for themselves in their one-room, corrugated iron shack home.

The eldest is 16, the youngest just two and they all sleep on the dirty mattress which their sick mother lay on in the days before she was taken into the ebola centre.

Their chances of catching or carrying the virus must be very high.

Video: How Do Clinical Trials Work?
For that reason, their uncle George - and the rest of the extended family - will keep well away for 21 days, just to see if they develop signs of the killer disease.

Even if they survive the virus, they'll have to fight poverty and the community's suspicions in the weeks and months ahead.

The video doesn't work on here but I watched it and it is worth accessing it from sky news......pitiful scenes.

Hi Badboy, what is worrying is the Nurse who tended the Spanish Priest airlifted from one of the infected Countries who later died. That was over 3 weeks ago , how many more may be infected in Spain?

If you watched the Sky Report I posted here it really showed us what it is like in Liberia. Even to the young Aid worker whose Parents made him sandwiches to eat outside for fear he would infect them.

I'm off to Tenerife today so I will leave you to keep this thread updated.

One off the nurses who has contracted the disease wore full protective clothing yet still has caught it.



I think it is very wrong that the UK has sent 750 soldiers to areas where it will possible for these people to contract the disease, they have no choice but to go, they follow orders .


When they come back they obviously go into quarantine for up to a month...
