    uhm……..mom gave us packages of Klenex,Pa fabulous doc/inventor…would scream at us if we SNEEZED or coughed on others without covering mouths /noses,,COVER YOUR DAMN FACE people,dont aerosolize your germs…fiancés kids used to give us chest colds,that took months to get rid of kids okay in a few days

    it is a really good ClASS lesson

    Editor’s Note: Today’s commentary was submitted to CIDRAP by the authors, who are national experts on respiratory protection and infectious disease transmission. In May they published a similar commentary on MERS-CoV. Dr Brosseau is a Professor and Dr Jones an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health, Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Healthcare workers play a very important role in the successful containment of outbreaks of infectious diseases like Ebola. The correct type and level of personal protective equipment (PPE) ensures that healthcare workers remain healthy throughout an outbreak—and with the current rapidly expanding Ebola outbreak in West Africa, it’s imperative to favor more conservative measures.

    The precautionary principle—that any action designed to reduce risk should not await scientific certainty—compels the use of respiratory protection for a pathogen like Ebola virus that has:

    •No proven pre- or post-exposure treatment modalities
    •A high case-fatality rate
    •Unclear modes of transmission

    We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks.1

    The minimum level of protection in high-risk settings should be a respirator with an assigned protection factor greater than 10. A powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) with a hood or helmet offers many advantages over an N95 filtering facepiece or similar respirator, being more protective, comfortable, and cost-effective in the long run.

    We strongly urge the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to seek funds for the purchase and transport of PAPRs to all healthcare workers currently fighting the battle against Ebola throughout Africa—and beyond.

    There has been a lot of on-line and published controversy about whether Ebola virus can be transmitted via aerosols. Most scientific and medical personnel, along with public health organizations, have been unequivocal in their statements that Ebola can be transmitted only by direct contact with virus-laden fluids2,3 and that the only modes of transmission we should be concerned with are those termed “droplet” and “contact.”

    These statements are based on two lines of reasoning. The first is that no one located at a distance from an infected individual has contracted the disease, or the converse, every person infected has had (or must have had) “direct” contact with the body fluids of an infected person.

    This reflects an incorrect and outmoded understanding of infectious aerosols, which has been institutionalized in policies, language, culture, and approaches to infection control. We will address this below. Briefly, however, the important points are that virus-laden bodily fluids may be aerosolized and inhaled while a person is in proximity to an infectious person and that a wide range of particle sizes can be inhaled and deposited throughout the respiratory tract.

    The second line of reasoning is that respirators or other control measures for infectious aerosols cannot be recommended in developing countries because the resources, time, and/or understanding for such measures are lacking.4

    doctors are talking of mutations that could aerosolize the virus

    this is a heads up …..Sept.18

    NEW ORLEANS — A critically ill person and others were taken from a ship in Belle Chasse and taken to West Jefferson hospital by an ambulance staffed with personnel in hazmat suits Wednesday afternoon, following a health scare aboard the Liberian-based cargo ship.

    After being anchored overnight, the ship has left the Belle Chasse area is sailing up river to New Orleans.

    Jefferson Parish John Young said federal health officials informed him that the patient was being treated for malaria, and it is not contagious.

    Young said when he asked why the patient was taken to West Jefferson Medical Center, he was told by federal and state health officials that the shipping company has a contract with a doctor who practices at West Jeff.

    Three sailors on Marine Phoenix cargo ship were hospitalized Wednesday evening. Federal and state health officials met the ship late Wednesday, after crew members fell ill. Health officials took precautions because the ship did make a stop in West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is wreaking havoc, but Jefferson Parish officials confirmed that crew members on-board have malaria.

    Young said the parish was notified about noon that the ship was coming up the Mississippi River, and that emergency managers monitored the situation through the afternoon and evening.

    The ship, which was destined for New Orleans, was anchored most of the day and night Wednesday in Belle Chasse. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Coast Guard officials were called in for assistance. The ship stayed anchored in Belle Chasse for the night.

    One patient taken off of the ship was said to be in critical condition, according to Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser.

    Around 6 p.m., the critically-ill crew member could be seen arriving at the hospital, and the paramedics were wearing protective gear as they took him from the vehicle. Hospital officials said everyone took precautions until they knew exactly what the illness was.

    cruising the seas with 4000 of your best friends with Ebola NOT controlled is foolhardy in my estimation
