This Is How It Begins..... The Terrifying Reality By The Numbers
By Susan Duclos
Before listening to the potrblog video below and clicking the source links he provides on his website and which will be shown below the video in this article, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Many believe and constantly state that the "US" health system is so much better, more advanced, and better equipped than west Africa where the Ebola outbreak has killed more than 3,000 people, but evidence to the contrary not only exists, but has been reported on. Consider the recent NYT article which discusses how an outbreak of EV 68, among children, has already overwhelmed hospitals to the point where they have to divert ambulances in some cases because they don't have the ability to care for the patients being brought in.
Three times in the last month, the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital has had to divert ambulances to other hospitals because its emergency room was filled with children, most of them younger than 5, with severe respiratory illness. Before the outbreak, the hospital had not had to divert ambulances in 10 years, said Dr. Daniel Johnson, the interim section chief of pediatric infectious diseases at the hospital.
Ample evidence that the US is completely unprepared for any massive outbreak, which we have been warned of time and time again, by doctors, nurses and health experts who would be on the frontline, so to speak, of any Ebola outbreak. Just recently the Nurses Union staged a protest in Las Vegas, dressed in HAZMAT suits, and stating outright that we are not prepared.
With all that in mind, potrblog provides us with the facts about Ebola, and providing all his source material for readers and viewers to confirm his assertions, which shows that all it would take is "one drop" of aerosolized Ebola infected blood to infect half a million people and one milliLiter to infect 10 million people.
Key Quote: "The mode of acquisition of viral infection in index cases is usually unknown. Secondary transmission of filovirus infection is typically thought to occur by direct contact with infected persons or infected blood or tissues. There is no strong evidence of secondary transmission by the aerosol route in African filovirus outbreaks. However, aerosol transmission is thought to be possible and may occur in conditions of lower temperature and humidity which may not have been factors in outbreaks in warmer climates. At the very least, the potential exists for aerosol transmission, given that virus is detected in bodily secretions, the pulmonary alveolar interstitial cells, and within lung spaces."
Now we see that yet another doctor that was exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone has been brought into the US and is currently being quarantined at National Institutes of Health in Maryland.
Ladies and gentlemen..... this is how it begins....... by the numbers.
