Ah fair enough, shows how little I really know about ebola.

It's now looking like they are bringing them back to study the experimental treatment that was administered in Africa.

I'm curious as to how fast they will be able to approve this serum for general use.

The bleeding comes for liver failure as the liver is what produces clotting factors. That's why it's towards the end and why they are brining US patients back. They probably don't have an abundance of these clotting factors since they are rare and very expensive. They also will use PRBC (packed red blood cells) and vitamin k to also try and curb the bleeding.

These items are also expensive and in short supply. But, if liver failure occurs and the bleeding can be controlled transplant is the only other chance for survival and livers are also not very cheap.

They're bringing them to the US because they can get the best medical treatment here. In West Africa the hospitals are overcrowded and the staff is overworked. They have a much better chance of survival if they're treated over here.

Actually there is a drug they are testing. See the CNN post about it.

That's pretty cool, though drug approval may take years... then again, I'd say there will be plenty of people willing to be a test case for this drug since the other option is dying from ebola.

Sr. Poop has the least serious title but is really the most serious person... He's a heavy mother.

CDC predicts 1.4 million infected by 2015.

Scared yet?

I am not because here in the West we have the resources to deal with Ebola (which doesn't spread easily). In Africa, they don't have the resources to deal with it, which is why this outbreak has been so bad and will continue to get worse.

You should be scared buddy.

We have "limited" resources. Clotting factors and blood is what will save us and clotting factors are very expensive and there is very few available.

And, yes, it does not spread easily but you don't now that you're sick for up to weeks and that can leave lots of time to infect others an spread the virus.

My wife is a professor at a prominent university here in the U.S. with lots of students from the areas in Africa that are having problems. All it takes is one of these students to bring it over and infect and campus --> city --> country.

We are on thin ice and people here think they can't touched. You people should be fucking terrified. I don't think you realize how close we are to the shit hitting the fan... we are NOT prepared here and if you think we are you are mistaken.
