Just when you thought the Ebola Pandemic couldnt get any - TopicsExpress


Just when you thought the Ebola Pandemic couldnt get any worse...... There have been more than 4,300 cases and 2,300 deaths over the past six months. ...by early October, there may be thousands of new cases per week in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria. What is not getting said publicly...is that we are in...uncharted waters and that Mother Nature is the only force in charge of the crisis... There are two possible future chapters to this story that should keep us up at night. The first possibility is that the Ebola virus spreads from West Africa to megacities in other regions of the developing world. The second possibility is...that...Ebola...could mutate to become transmissible through the air. ...viruses like Ebola are...sloppy in replicating, meaning the virus entering one person may be genetically different from the virus entering the next. ...there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice. If certain mutations occurred, it would mean that just breathing would put one at risk of contracting Ebola. nytimes/2014/09/12/opinion/what-were-afraid-to-say-about-ebola.html?emc=edit_tnt_20140911&nlid=745484&tntemail0=y&_r=1
