Ebola can survive on surfaces for almost TWO MONTHS
« on: October 27, 2014, 06:13:17 PM »
The number of confirmed Ebola cases passed the 10,000 mark over the weekend, despite efforts to curb its spread.

And while the disease typically dies on surfaces within hours, research has discovered it can survive for more than seven weeks under certain conditions.

During tests, the UKs Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that the Zaire strain will live on samples stored on glass at low temperatures for as long as 50 days.

Well I am not altogether surprised that there is no common front on this. First they tell us that there is a  21 day incubation period. but that is only for 95% of the cases. A full 3% don't show up for 42 days. However 42 days is a LONG time to be in quarantine so lets play the percentage.  T

This is a deadly virus with now know cure or treatment and it has been around since 1976. So now we expect a vaccine to "cure" the virus in a couple of months. Really?

This was a virus that could only dealt with in a BSL 4 until now and now apparently our northern hospitals in Ontario are equipped to deal with? Really?

WHO estimates the number of infected and dead to be underestimated by a factor of 3.

They have NO experience what so ever of this the reaction of this virus in cold climates. However they have always stated that at 4 C can survive for a number of days. So This seems to be right in line with that.

It is going to be an interesting winter.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

This is also worth a read along the same lines as the theme of this thread.
