Yeah, we apparently have to go there.
The World Health Organization released a statement earlier this month confirming that the Ebola virus can live in sperm for at least two but up to three months:
The Ebola virus is transmitted among humans through close and direct physical contact with infected bodily fluids, the most infectious being blood, faeces and vomit.
The Ebola virus has also been detected in breast milk, urine and semen. In a convalescent male, the virus can persist in semen for at least 70 days; one study suggests persistence for more than 90 days. [emphasis added]
The Ebola virus can hide out in a man’s sperm who is recovering from Ebola for three whole months, meaning anyone he has unprotected sex with is at risk for catching Ebola.
According to Mother Jones, a 1999 CDC study found that one woman has already possibly been infected this way:
…A 1977 study of an outbreak in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo found Ebola in the semen of one survivor 61 days after the onset of his disease. And a 1999 study found the virus in an Ebola survivor’s semen 82 days after he first became ill. That study recommended that survivors use condoms for “at least” three months after contracting the disease.A separate 1999 study, backed by the Centers for Disease Control, identified one woman who tested positive for Ebola but never developed symptoms. The researchers concluded that it was unclear if she ever actually contracted the virus, but that it was “possible” that she was infected by a recovered Ebola patient via his semen. [emphasis added]
So if a woman contracts Ebola this way, if she shows no symptoms, could she also then become an asymptomatic carrier?
It’s a question that needs to be asked.
While the mainstream media and our government health officials have worked very hard to quell public fears by selling the idea that an asymptomatic person cannot transmit this virus period, obviously the fact that it lives on in sperm in men in recovery who appear otherwise healthy shows this is untrue on its face.
The very idea asymptomatic people cannot transmit a virus from a common sense biological standpoint is everything from at the very least highly risky to outright ludicrous, and has never once been proven.
In fact, the opposite has been documented regarding viral shedding of other viruses in studies:
A physician knowledgeable about viremia called Rush Limbaugh (10-14-2014) to discuss how viral replication and dissemination through the body precedes symptom appearance, therefore raising the possibility of transmitting Ebola to others from asymptomatic (without symptoms) individuals. This is consistent with extensive research documenting viral shedding in asymptomatic people, even those who seem perfectly healthy, for many virus species (example 1, example 2).
As Ebola continues to ravage Africa, and this single outbreak is now to blame for over 5,000 deaths and 12,000 infections, it leaves one to wonder: where are the massive education campaigns focused on informing the public about sperm and unprotected sex as a prolonged mode of Ebola virus transmission?
