Ebola cases suspected in US and Canada, airports in Guinea begin health checkpoints

As the Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to spread, airport health checkpoints have been set up in Guinea, to help prevent the virus from spreading.  There have already been two cases that were suspected to have left the country.

One Canadian man traveling from the area became infected and brought the virus home to Canada. When he was sick at a Canadian hospital, health officials insisted that there was nothing to be afraid of, and that his virus was not actually Ebola, but only an “Ebola-like” virus.  However, the fact that this person was recently in an Ebola outbreak area is leaving many to wonder if this is a true Ebola case that is being downplayed by health officials.

Another case appeared in Minnesota, and passed through New York City, according to the CDC.

Preliminary information indicates that the patient flew from West Africa to New York City and caught another flight to Minneapolis. “Given what we know about how Lassa virus is spread to people, the risk to other travelers and members of the public is extremely low,” said Martin Cetron, M.D., M.P.H., director of CDC’s Division of Global Migration and Quarantine.

The doctors in Minnesota are still saying that the virus that this person was infected with was “Lassa fever” a different form of Hemorrhagic fever than Ebola, but given the area of the country that the passenger traveled from, many believe that this is a case of Ebola.

Some have even suggested that the strain of Ebola that is currently spreading across West Africa is airborne, creating the possibility of a greater epidemic.

According to the Associated Press, health officials in Guinea say all passengers departing from the capital city’s airport must fill out a health form and have their temperature taken as part of an effort to combat the spread of the deadly Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

Dr. Sakoba Keita, director of prevention at the health ministry, said anyone with a temperature higher than 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) would be tested for the disease, which has killed 86 people in the West African nation since an outbreak began in February. French Health Minister Marisol Touraine said Saturday that French doctors from the Pasteur Institute would be on hand to watch boarding procedures at the airport in Conakry.

As the virus spreads local panic has increased. As we reported earlier this week, an angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment center in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly virus to the town.

    Ebola is pretty hard to contract in a non-third-world environment. Requires close contact with body fluids of victims, not droplet spread

    • Wolve Rine

      Somehow, you missed this sentence Genius: Some have even suggested that the strain of Ebola that is currently spreading across West Africa is airborne, creating the possibility of a greater epidemic.”

      • Maybe you are conversing with a gov’t hack

        • Wolve Rine

          Yep, as always, the loudest voices of individual freedom are guilty of their enemies crimes.
          Along with the rapid fire accusation of “gov’t hack/agent” hurled at those that disagree with their opinion, and fail to see Bigfoot and Elvis cruising in a UFO on a daily basis.

          • Whoa big fella ! Step away from the crack pipe , put down the mouse, and breathe,,,,,again,,,breathe…..aahhh… isn’t that better now MR.Rine?

          • john haggle

            You are correct again “Wolve Rine”. Few really believe you R work for govrnmant. Most know you just belief stongly too wait an cee what Eloblis do. Then deal wit problme. Go git em wolve guy!!

      • mishong

        “Some have suggested” – I have suggested that you are a congenital idiot, so that makes it so, right? Who are these some who are suggesting that Ebola is now airborne, which it has never been in all the previous outbreaks?

    • BOB

      Don’t kid yourself, when they say bodily fluids they don’t mean like HIV bodily fluids, they mean every thing that comes from your body: SWEAT, SALIVA, urine, feces, semen, vaginal secretions, blood, sebum, tears, EVERYTHING. You don’t think you come into contact with other peoples’ fluids everyday? You’re either a shut-in, or in denial.

    • TakeItOrLeaveIt

      I dunno about that. You haven’t seen some folks that I have, who sneeze w/o covering their mouth. Trust me, they let out a lot of “secretions.” Personally, I think its VERY possible to spread. Ever spoke to someone who “sprays” while speaking to you? Yep, its possible to spread easier than what we’re being told. Just my observation.

  • Population reduction time? Gee, you can trust our beloved gov’t, just ask the Indians .

    • Ziza

      Dr. Pianka once told a crowd, in order to overcome “overpopulation” 90% of the world’s population had to be culled. And airborne ebola will be used.

      • Ranger_Ric

        Interesting how this particular strain supposedly has a 90% fatality rate.

  • Joseph Lizak

    If you want your Ebola virus you can keep your Ebola virus.

  • Anyone survive this ? Is there a treatment?

    • Ranger_Ric

      No treatment, this current stain is reported to have about a 90% fatality rate..

  • Wolve Rine

    No need.
    As you are obviously a more highly trained Medical Doctor.

  • Wolve Rine

    “They have absolutely NOTHING to support that supposition.”
    Nor do you.

  • Wolve Rine

    Don’t try to walk your know nothing BS back.
    You original comment did was clueless about the concern of airborne transmission.

    • Gypsy2586

      Then I will answer for c. I work with pathogens as a medical biologist, hopefully that is expert enough for you.

      Ebola is not an airborne virus. It can be aerosolized, but that is something different. It means that there is a possibility that it could be carried via droplets short distances, but it does not remain suspended like a true airborne virus. Again, there is a possibility. The likelihood of it actually happening are very slim, just as the likelihood of it spreading via sweat is very slim (there has yet to be a confirmed report of it spreading this way last time I checked, but since it is technically possible it has to be listed as a transmission route).

  • john haggle

    “Wolve Rine” … I entirely support your supposition. All Americans and Europeans are entirely safe from Ebollis. It ONLY transmittigate-ed in ways blak afercans use Like sex, or hug and a piece of snot, or a sneeeze in close, or a mutigation of the viroses.Us Xparts Know this butt dumm people do snot.

  • CorruptionInColumbia

    A local radio station used to run a spoof ad back in the 90’s about “Ebola Cola, the drink that makes you bleed from your eyes.”

  • abinico

    GMO food causes Ebola.

  • Ranger_Ric

    You know what… a decade ago i would have called you and them crazy but today… I believe our gov (and others) are capable of anything.

    I agree with you, they should be concerned.
