A missionary from Charlotte and a Texas doctor working for Boone-based Samaritans Purse are among the first Americans who have been infected with the deadly Ebola virus while working to combat the outbreak in Liberia.

She has been living in Monrovia with her husband.
She was spraying the suits of Healthcare workers. How the heck does you catch it doing that.
Prayers for Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, their family and friends.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Maybe not “friends”, but fellow human beings in great need. Prayers for her & everyone else trying to help the Ebola victims.
Sad. My grand daughter is in the pre school in this lady’s church in Charlotte. Huge church.
The count now stands at two Americans and another Nigerian (?) doctor. Once again, we’re only one plane ticket or border crossing before it’s in the US.
Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
They are braver than I am and better than I am, that’s for sure.
I’m thinking that Homeland Security will be looking into importing some Ebola patients to further their plan of reducing the population of the United States to 30 million people.
Ebola is spread by contact with bodily fluids of those infected.
Hosing down protective gear drenched in infected bodily fluids...gee wonder why that might be considered very dangerous?
No indications that it is airborne, if that is what you were implying.
I’ve been keeping an eye on this latest outbreak.
Fatality rate at 6X%.(under 70, over 60 out of 100 die)
The official death tolls (approaching 700) are not looking good for containment, given the area, spanning 4 nations in which it is spreading.
Notice how the Tee vee media never talks about this?
No I was honestly wondering you could catch it from spraying sanitizer on other people. She probably got splashed or picked something up.
Is it airborne? Depends on what you mean. Is it spread by sneezes or coughs?
Security! Security! Do not discuss the President's plans!
This is alarming to me. I work in a lab. I am wondering if their precautions are unable to be met with the right equipment or ebola has changed in ability to infect.
But one assumes that they are gowned masked and gloved before doing it...and follow precautions.
I am wondering if their precautions are unable to be met with the right equipment or ebola has changed in ability to infect.
That’s what I’ve been wondering, too.
Just not likely for a true bloodborne pathogen and I am just stunned if American MDs are not using universal precautions...there is more to the story I bet.
You just have to wonder if they ran out of gowns or something and just took a stand in faith and courage to keep going.
