Ebola RUSSIA [UPDATED 07/08/14: VIRUS GOT TO SAUDI ARABIA]
Ebola virus is called an acute viral disease, which is characterized by a very high infectivity and more importantly, mortality (die 9 out of 10 infected), characterized by the development of hemorrhagic syndrome. It's pretty rare, but very dangerous disease, the mortality rate from which reaches 90%. And the worst thing is the duck that the vaccine does not exist
And so, what will happen if the virus starts its uncontrolled spread in Russia?
Well, of course it all depends on the primary seat of the primary infected with the Ebola virus.
If, however, it will be a major metropolis like Moscow, St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg, the result will not be long in coming.
1 day carrier of the Ebola virus can infect at least 100 people and 100 people, in turn, to 100.
In other words, for the first day of your stay in Moscow, the Ebola virus can be sentenced to a further death of 500 people.
Imagine what would happen in a month.
The fact that in Africa, the population density is very high and not stop the spread of the virus may be a simple method of isolation of infected patients.
Sure, if the Ebola virus gets into the large Russian metropolis, it would mean death for Russia (which at the moment is waiting for the United States), you know what I mean. I think that all this is no accident.
The Ebola virus is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other body fluids of an infected person.
Burial ceremonies where mourners have direct contact with the body of the deceased, can play a significant role in the transmission of Ebola.
In Côte d'Ivoire, Republic of Congo and Gabon are documented cases of human infection with the Ebola virus through the handling of infected chimpanzees, gorillas, and forest antelopes, both dead and alive. Also received reports of transmission of the Ebola Reston strain the handling of cynomolgus monkeys.
Health care workers have frequently been infected while treating Ebola patients, through close contact in the absence of appropriate infection control precautions and adequate barrier nursing procedures.
Symptoms of Ebola virus:
Ebola is characterized by sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is often accompanied by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding. Laboratory findings show low counts of white blood cells and platelets as well as elevated liver enzymes.
Deadly Ebola virus continues to build momentum and expands its nepriryvno. Now to the list of countries in which the recorded cases of infection, adding Saudi Arabia. Currently, the leading specialists virologists urged WHO (World Health Organization) to give a chance to survive the residents of West African countries. In other words - send to Liberia, Nigeria, Guinea and Sierra Leone, an experimental serum. That which is successfully applied to the cases of American doctors.
