    An Ebola patient has died after bringing the disease to the Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) eastern city of Goma, the nation's government has confirmed. The unnamed patient, 46, became infected while visiting the town of Butembo, which has been an epicentre in the ongoing outbreak. The DRC's health ministry claims the man took a bus the 200km (124 mile) journey from Butembo to Goma last week. The patient, who was a priest, died while travelling back for treatment.

    Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday. “If you are sniffling and sneezing, you produce microorganisms that can get on stuff in a room. If people touch them, they could be” infected, said Dr. Meryl Nass, of the Institute for Public Accuracy in Washington, DC.

    Please call congress and tell them that we must be deadly serious about containing Ebola by strict quarantine within the United States and from infected nations. This is our right and it is our duty. Capitol switchboard is 202-224-3121. I called my congressman this morning in Washington and got right through, same thing for the local office. That tells me not many people are calling. Why isn't a special session of Congress called to deal with this outbreak? It is a potentially serious threat to national security and time is of the essence. I believe decisive response is urgent because...

    A horrifying threat has surfaced in the fight West Africans are waging against the epidemic of Ebola – dogs digging up corpses of virus victims and feasting on the remains, then carrying the infection with them wherever they go next. A recent report in the Mail Online in the U.K. said villagers in Liberia were complaining dogs were found digging up the corpses of Ebola victims buried in shallow graves and eating them in the street.

    An American physician who was exposed to the Ebola virus while volunteering in Sierra Leone was transferred to a National Institutes of Health facility in Bethesda from an aircraft that landed Sunday at Frederick Municipal Airport. The patient, who was not identified, landed at about 3:30 p.m. in Frederick and arrived at the NIH Clinical Center at about 4 p.m., John Burklow, associate director for communications and public liaison for NIH, said in a news release. The small gray jet, a Gulfstream III operated by Phoenix Air Group of Cartersville, Georgia, was in Senegal on Saturday and arrived in Frederick...

    ...there are two little facts about Ebola which are buried in the commotion and nobody will share. More importantly, there is nothing that we can do to stop these problems. The first is that Ebola is not spread by humans alone. It is also spread by small mammals. Bats are commonly cited as a likely host for the disease. It is unclear how many other animals serve as vectors. There's no reason to disbelieve that Ebola cannot be transmitted from a human, either alive or dead, back into animals. We've sent troops to Africa to help quarantine people, but corralling...
  • Here it is: DNA sequences reveal Ebola’s spread and mutation

    08/28/2014 6:50:37 PM PDT · by alexmark1917 · 24 replies
    DNA sequences reveal Ebola’s spread and mutation The virus was not recognized in West Africa until March of this year, however, when the first case was confirmed in Guinea. Gire said the West African epidemic likely began after a single zoonotic event — in other words, transmission of the virus from an animal to a person. Gire said his study shows that more than 300 mutations have occurred since Ebola began infecting people in Sierra Leone. Every time a virus passes from one person to another, it is likely some mutations will occur, though not all of them will be...

    LONDON - The first scientific analysis of probable human-to-human transmission of a deadly new strain of bird flu that emerged in China this year gives the strongest evidence yet that the H7N9 virus can pass between people, scientists said on Wednesday. Research published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) analyzing a family cluster of cases of H7N9 infection in eastern China found it was very likely the virus "transmitted directly from the index patient (a 60-year-old man) to his daughter." Experts commenting on the research said while it did not necessarily mean H7N9 is any closer to becoming the next...

    Rioting in London spread to the Jewish community. Stores in the Jewish communities of Stamford Hill and Golders Green were urged to close and secure merchandise Monday night as unrest that began Saturday night in the north London neighborhood of Tottenham spread throughout London. Residents of Tottenham’s Chasidic Orthodox community reportedly gathered on the street to heckle police over Shabbat, The Guardian reported. But following warnings from local rabbis and the Shomrim Orthodox security service, most members of the Jewish community stayed away from the riots, according to the Jewish Chronicle. They were advised that they could go to synagogue,...

    The Arab freedom wave has now hit the shores of Europe and in the most unlikely of places: the Balkans. Croatia, an Adriatic nation that straddles the civilizational fault line between Central Europe and the Balkans, has been seething with public unrest and protests. For weeks, thousands of demonstrators have been assembling almost daily in the capital, Zagreb, and across other cities in this country of 4.4 million. They are demanding that the government step down and call snap elections. The situation is volatile - and could turn violent. The protests should come as no surprise. Croatia is on the...

    The son of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi tried to intimidate Libyans Sunday, warning in a TV speech of civil war and foreign plots. But Libya's wave of democracy protests is strengthening as protesters ignore violence that has claimed more than 200 lives. Cairo Saif al-Islam, a son of Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi, appeared on Libyan state television late last night with a simple mission: Restore the fear. He failed. Libya's wave of democracy protests, which has gathered momentum even as Mr. Qaddafi's troops have shot hundreds of people, swept into the capital of Tripoli today. While Mr. Islam's threatening speech...

    High-income families would be hit with a tax increase on wages and a new levy on investments under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul bill. For the first time, the Medicare payroll tax would be applied to investment income, beginning in 2013. A new 3.8 percent tax would be imposed on interest, dividends, capital gains and other investment income for individuals making more than $200,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000. The bill also would increase the Medicare payroll tax by 0.9 percentage point to 2.35 percent on wages above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples...

    DETROIT — Authorities are trying to determine whether a woman who claims in an online video that she intentionally infected more than 500 people in suburban Detroit with HIV is real or a hoax. The unidentified woman says in a nearly 11-minute video posted on mediatakeout.com that since contracting HIV in 1998, she has been "pretty upset" about having to "suffer," and has "set out to "destroy the world" because a cure for the virus that causes AIDS has not been found. Deputy Police Chief James Tolbert tells The Detroit News that tipsters have told police that the woman lives...

    A county medical examiner in Iowa has come forward to inform the public of the results of autopsies that point to bleeding in the lungs, just as in the fatal cases in the Ukraine and Norway.

    Excerpt: Ann Novotny studied the signaling used by the cancer in a portion of large intestinal and colon cancer. She found that there are receptors for opioids, such as morphone, on tumor cells. If morphine is supplied to these cells the protein urokinase is released, which the cancer cells can use to enhance their capacity to spread.

    One man was ticketed today possibly in connection with a fire that started near S.C. 90 and spread through Horry County. The man was ticketed for failure to notify the S.C. Forestry Commission about an outdoor burn and letting the fire spread to another's property, said Scott Hawkins, forestry spokesman. ''Were they the cause of the fire? We don't know that yet,'' Hawkins said. ''There is further investigation needed. Yes that burn caused a fire, but it doesn't mean it caused the [S.C.] 31 fire we are here to discuss today.'' The man's name was not immediately available. Forestry Commission...
