Look friends, this is outside my area of expertise, but I hear tell that thanks to our shitty government and its refusal to protect American citizens and sovereignty Ebola has made it to the USA. Because of political correctness the USA will not shut down travel from the Ebola regions of Africa to the USA. That would be racist
This is the primer on what to do if its lose in your area
#1) Personal hygiene cannot be overstated. Keep yourself clean, wash your hands, clean your kitchen, and stay away from sick people. Wash or sanitize your hands. The folks in the third world don’t do that very often and it tells. Dirt simple but it will go a long way to keeping you safe. Oral hygiene too. Not for the Ebola per say but in general having a yuck mouth can set you up for a lot of disease. More than you would think, and more then stuff that only affects your gums and what not. It’s a little too late for fitness and good nutrition but if you are fit and if you eat well, you’re less likely to get sick from any damn thing out there and recover from whatever does get you sick( or injured). If you’re out of shape and eat like shit, fix that right now. Basic manners like covering your mouth when you cough and sneeze will help ensure you don’t get others sick. Avoid sick people and keep yourself healthy. If you have the flu, it becomes easier to catch something else. Like the Ebola. Don’t handle items and personal effects of people who are infected. Avoid hospitals if you know that hospital is treating Ebola patients. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
#2) Stay indoors. Another side benefit of having a house full of food, water, medicine and all your other consumable supplies is you don’t have to leave it very often. If it is raging in your area, and you don’t have to leave the house for 30 days, you stand a much better chance of staying healthy then the guy who has to run out to the store every few days.
#3) if things get really out of control wear protective clothing, including masks, gloves, gowns, and eye protection. If you’re worried have it on hand before you need it.
#3) Understand Ebola spreads through blood and other bodily fluids. If you’re not a medic, don’t go playing one with strangers. It can take up to 21 days for the Ebola symptoms to occur. Symptoms are fever (temperature of 101.5°F/ 38.6°C) headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, or unexplained bruising or bleeding. If you have any of those, get to the doc’s; if you come into contact with someone who has those symptoms, run. Here in the USA, things are pretty clean and we are pretty healthy compared to the third world. People in the third world tend to live in filth, die in filth and don’t do much about dead bodies and human waste and they die like it’s their national sport. I don’t think Ebola will spread in the USA like it does in Africa, but who the hell knows and really if it hits your town and your town only, your still in a world of shit. Figuratively and literally. One thing I do know is, the USA is going to allow more people with Ebola into the USA, and some small number of soldiers, sailors airmen who are being sent to Africa to help the locals deal with it will come back with Ebola. Count on it.
If I lived in a military town that sent people to Africa or in a city with an African immigrant population or international airport, I’d take this Ebola thing more serious then I would in rural NC or here in the A-stan
I’ve done a little more study since I initially typed this. Apparently the USA is seeing resurgences in Tuberculosis (TB), Measles and what not do to the massive third world immigration our “fearless” leaders encourage. I would think about taking this serious if I lived nearby any group of immigrates, especially if you have elderly or young children under your care
