Latest development on the current outbreak.

Quote:
The Ebola victim who is believed to have triggered the current outbreak - a two-year-old boy called Emile Ouamouno from Guinea - may have been infected by playing in a hollow tree housing a colony of bats, say scientists.

They made the connection on an expedition to the boy's village, Meliandou.

They took samples and chatted to locals to find out more about Ebola's source.

The team's findings are published in EMBO Molecular Medicine.
Meliandou is a small village of 31 houses.

It sits deep within the Guinean forest region, surrounded by towering reeds and oil palm cultivations - these are believed to have attracted the fruit bats carrying the virus passed on to Emile.

During their four-week field trip in April 2014, Dr Fabian Leendertz and colleagues found a large tree stump situated about 50m from Emile's home.

Villagers reported that children used to play frequently in the hollow tree.

Emile - who died of Ebola in December 2013 - used to play there, according to his friends.

The villagers said that the tree burned on March 24, 2014 and that once the tree caught fire, there issued a "rain of bats".
A large number of these insectivorous free-tailed bats - Mops condylurus in Latin - were collected by the villagers for food, but disposed of the next day after a government-led ban on bushmeat consumption was announced.

While bushmeat is thought to be a possible source of Ebola, the scientists believe it didn't trigger the outbreak.

Instead, it was Emile's exposure to the bats and their droppings as he played with his friends in the hollowed tree.

The scientists took and tested ash samples from the tree and found DNA traces that were a match for the animals.

While they were unable to test any of the bushmeat that the villagers had disposed of, they captured and tested any living bats they could find in and around Meliandou.

No Ebola could be detected in any of these hundred or so animals, however.

But previous tests show this species of bat can carry Ebola.

Dr Leendertz, from the Robert Koch Institute in Germany, and his colleagues say this must be a pretty rare occurrence though.
Dr Leendertz said: "That is also obvious when you think about how many tonnes of bat meat is consumed every year.

"If more bats carried the virus, we would see outbreaks all the time."

He says it is vital to find out more about the bats.

"They have moved into human settlements. They do not just live in the trees but also under the roofs of houses in the villages.

"The Ebola virus must jump through colonies from bat to bat, so we need to know more."

But culling the animals is not the answer.

"We need to find ways to live together with the wildlife. These bats catch insects and pests, such as mosquitoes. They can eat about a quarter of their body weight in insects a day.

"Killing them would not be a solution. You would have more malaria."

The virus is probably contained in the bat guano which the bats get on them and carry from nest to nest. Bat guano is nasty stuff in a number of ways. It wouldn't surprise me if it was a reservoir for viruses.

Let's try a little experiment to see how in touch with reality you are (and I suppose this will also shed light on my own mind... although I don't take that too seriously). You made a prediction that this Ebola scare will lead to blue helmeted and armed UN troops making a show of force in New York City.

I say with confidence that this will never happen in our life times.

If this does happen, I will accept this as proof that my understanding of reality is flawed.

I am willing to bet that this Ebola scare will fade away into history with no UN troops.

So make your prediction, when do you expect to see these UN troops.

Let's put a date on this so that we can prove whether I am correct about you being out of touch with reality.



Here is the beginning, mate!

New York to let the UN run its police force

http://www.naturalnews.com/gallery/640/EditorialUse/Editorial-Use-Police-Car-At-Times-Square.jpg

American tradition, values and mores continue to erode thanks to constant pressure by the political left to destroy a culture they see as illegitimate and dangerous to the globe — despite our nation's appeal to millions around the world and the opportunities we create for ourselves and for others.

Now, the liberals who run New York City are even prepared to cede at least some policing power to "a new global, terror-busting network to try to combat homegrown extremism," according to a September 29 press statement, The New American reports.

In an announcement made at the United Nations, avowed socialist Mayor Bill DeBlasio declared New York City's intent to join the UN and the United States Department of Justice in their bid to combat "all forms of violent extremism, whether it's based in religious, or racial, or nationalistic or ideological intolerance."

@Quehoniaomath,
I admit when I am wrong. Clearly the Ebola Crisis in the USA was much worse than I ever expected. The swath of death and destruction wrought by this disease spreading in the US was horrible.

If I had only known I would have supported closing the borders and jailing nurses.

I wish we all had listened.

@Quehoniaomath,
I don't know what you want Quehoniaomath. What happened with Ebola in the USA is now in the past, there really is nothing left to debate. We all know the horrible result. You can't debate facts.

I was wrong. You were right. What else do you want?

If you remember, Max was about the only one to downplay the Ebola threat in the US, and dangerously so in my opinion at the time. He was right; I was wrong.

@Quehoniaomath,
why is it that everything Quahog beleieves is in the realm of conspiracy. Is even ONE thing he believes in incorrect?
I dont believe he is familiar with "weighing evidence". He just likes to be on a fringe .

Ill bet he believes the moon landings never occurred either.

@farmerman,
What's worse is that he has an audience here. You can't reason at all with a mind that is closed and has no ability to sort through logic and facts. I've been to assisted-living facilities where people have lost their ability to sort the facts. I see little difference...with all respect to those with such an affliction. At least they try.

of course the moon landings never occured. How could they?
There is no evidence, and any 'evidence' there is is faked. Like the moon rock
But there is a thread here about that,

farmerman doesn't understand how big the conspiracy is.

It seems she can't 'grok' that!

But is is splendid to see how she takes nonsense so seriously!

It is laughable, that is true.
