Ebola: wasn’t planning on talking about this.

Earlier today I exchanged tweets with

 

Rachel Kramer Bussel

 

A sex columnist with the City Paper here in Philadelphia. She provides an invaluable service as talking about sex can be hard, ignorance deadly .

 

 

I wish the rest of our news media were equally indelicate in talking about Ebola.  While you may be nauseated, fear would be lessened by a google plex.

 

No one wants to say on Tv, while people are eating dinner, that the primary route of transmission is shit.   Ebola causes copious amounts of liquid fecal excretion . As much as 2 liters in a day. About 2/7s of total fluid volume. Most die of hypovolemic shock.    In epidemiological terms it’s route of transmission is fecal / oral ..shit gets in your mouth.  Ebola is nothing to fuck with as it is an aggressive virus.  However, if no one with Ebola has shit upon you you are safe.

 

A fool calling himself ” Ebola” has been spreading qualitatively false information.   He claims that Ebola can be transmitted by air.  Wrong!  If it were true there  would be more than a million deaths in the affected areas of Africa. Ebola , like Hepatitis A is spread in areas of poor human waste disposal.

 

That’s all on this…if no one infected with Ebola has shit upon you are safe. This variant is not hemorrhagic, but ebola can be that. Like Hantavirus here in the USA.

 

The nurses who got sick were not provided proper equipment to take care on the gentleman who died in Texas. It turns out that giving supportive therapy in a timely fashion is key to survival. That is, replacing the fluids you are losing.

 

 

 

 

 

Just to make a point,

    More Americans have been married to Kim Kardashian than have died from Ebola, yet that’s what the masses fear most. Idiocracy…they’re gaining on us.
