Now I don't know if the people who were flown here from West Africa for treatment are counted in that country's case count. Probably so, because they are not counted in the USA totals.

Need the time points of diagnosis and death. Maybe WHO has that info.

Amber Vinson is getting better:

Amber Joy Vinson, the nurse who contracted Ebola after treating Thomas Eric Duncan in Dallas, is free of the Ebola virus and regaining strength, according to a statement by her family Wednesday afternoon.

Vinson's mother, Debra Berry, spoke to Vinson at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital and said healthcare professionals there have determined that there are no detectable copies of the virus in Vinson's body, family spokesman Steven Jumper wrote.

"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Ebola and the Media's Multiple Personality Disorder
Reason

In the human body, Ebola causes fever, diarrhea, vomiting, uncontrollable hemorrhaging, and usually death. In the media, it causes a sort of multiple personality disorder. Since the current outbreak began, the press has wavered uneasily between intimations of doom and assurances that everything is under control.

I see what you did there.

Anyway, New York has nothing to worry about. Cleveland officials will be offering expert advice. All will be well.

yeah but yeah but yeah but ... that assumes random processes. The odds of dying in a plane crash are whatever but if you don't fly, they are zero.

The fact is that Ebola is being spread by Islamists and that if you are in a major us city the odds of getting it, infecting your family and you all dieing are close to 87%. Further, the "axe strain" is likely to increase in virulence and range and will probably triple the above probability, at least.

New York doctor diagnosed with Ebola; health officials say no cause for panic

"We want to state at the outset that New Yorkers have no reason to be alarmed," de Blasio said.


Fucker is a commie and can't be trusted. Lets examine his reassurance, shall we?

"New Yorkers who have not been exposed are not at all at risk."


I feel better now.

One question: Why don't they quarantine returning health care workers over there rather than letting them fly home while they're not symptomatic, only to have them collapse at Joes Barn and Grill Bowling Emporium? And this dumb fucker is a doctor..........A GODDAMNED DOCTOR..............who proceeded to wander around the city while he should have been in his apartment for the required incubation period.

Dumb fuck.

Next up: The girlfriend will come down with it too because the very first thing they did when he got home was a 'missed you' fuck or two. It'll take about another two weeks to confirm her.

And then Dick Head says on TV: "We're doing everything that can be done." Except getting out in front of this shit.

Fools. I'll destroy them all!!11Eleventy :-)
