CDC Removed Information On Coughing and Sneezing From Ebola Q&A

“An earlier version of the page is still available in Google’s cache. It said that while Ebola is not “airborne” like chickenpox or tuberculosis, it can travel a few feet in the air inside droplets emitted when someone coughs or sneezes.

“A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose,” the document said.

The CDC has also changed an Ebola Q&A, deleting the below question about coughing and sneezing (which are not typical Ebola symptoms):

Can Ebola spread by coughing? By sneezing?

Unlike respiratory illnesses like measles or chickenpox, which can be transmitted by virus particles that remain suspended in the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes, Ebola is transmitted by direct contact with body fluids of a person who has symptoms of Ebola disease. Although coughing and sneezing are not common symptoms of Ebola, if a symptomatic patient with Ebola coughs or sneezes on someone, and saliva or mucus come into contact with that person’s eyes, nose or mouth, these fluids may transmit the disease.

The version of the Q&A still online notes that Ebola can survive on doorknobs for several hours. The removed question is available in Google’s cache from Oct. 29.”

So how many people can you pass a bug to in a week? More to the point, all it takes is one who doesn’t know he/she’s been contaminated with Ebola to start an epidemic here in the US.

A Doctors Without Borders doc who was treating Ebola patients should have been QUARANTINED, not allowed to run around New York City. But, that would make TOO MUCH FUCKING SENSE!!!

I am disgusted with the mindless obfuscators who have been ignoring reality to score political points almost as much as with the White House and CDC.

Perhaps this species is just too fucking stupid and crazy to go the distance?

No Money to Stop Ebola?

CDC has already published that up to 1.4 million Ebola cases may affect Africa by January 20 of 2015.  Perhaps this explains some of it…

Government Indifference Compounds Ebola Disaster

United Nations officials said Thursday that the UN trust fund for Ebola has only $100,000 on hand, a fraction of the nearly $1 billion the world body says is needed to contain the spread of the deadly virus. While the UN fund has received pledges of about $20 million from various governments, it has received only $100,000 in actual cash deposits, and that from only one country, Colombia.

No such admissions from the CDC for even worse incompetence.
