Stay home. Avoid public gatherings. Wear a mask if you must go to a public place. Dispose of mask in sealed bag. Wear gloves but even at that don’t shake hands.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

Super important - keep the immune system boosted.
There are nutritional supplements to consider taking for the immune system.

Thanks for the ping.

On the one hand, it is interesting to wait to see if MERS becomes easily transmissible human to human. OTOH, that eventuality is rather frightening.

I believe the R-naught number is still 1 or less.

And stop drinking camel urine.

Whatever happened to “quarantine”?

AIDS ended the practice of isolating rabidly infected people for observation so they could not spread disease.

All political correctness due to not wanting to inconvenience a certain population (Gays).

Exactly. They keep sending these infected people home to pass it along to their families and everyone they come in contact with. Sweep it under the rug in the name of PC and diversity!
