Man VS Virus : The War is on !

 

ebola

Ebola, which, in the past, has been concentrated almost exclusively in West and Central Africa, has been getting a lot of attention recently in the news. This is because we are currently seeing the “world’s worst outbreak of Ebola…” The Center for Disease Control reports that “The World Health Organization (WHO) announced a cumulative total of 1779 suspect and confirmed cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) and 961 deaths, as of August 6, 2014. Of the 1779 clinical cases, 1134 cases have been laboratory confirmed for Ebola virus infection,” (cdc.gov).



What is Ebola ?

     Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside the body.

     The disease kills up to 90% of people who are infected.

     Ebola is highly infectious, needing only very few particles of it to transfer to another host.

     The virus stays active longer than most viruses in bodily fluids like blood, semen, Spit, Sweat, Stool and Urine.

 

Signs and Symptoms :

           

As this disease becomes an increasingly important international problem, it is important to know some of the symptoms associated with Ebola:

     High fever

     Headache

     Joint and muscle aches

     Sore throat

     Weakness

     Stomach pain

 

And in sever cases:

     Bleeding inside the body and from eyes, ears and nose

     Vomiting or coughing up blood

     Bloody diarrhea

     Rashes

 

 

How to Prevent Spread :

There has been talk about what would happen if the virus was spread over to the U.S. Would we be ready for it? Opinions are mixed. The CDC says that, due to the strong safety measures in place for those with Ebola being treated in the U.S., the risk of it spreading is not significant. Education for provider, physician is actively being untaken by CDC.

 

Maybe the scariest thing about Ebola is some of the doubt and confusion surrounding the disease. Questions like “How long will it take before the outbreak in Africa is stopped?”, “How serious would it be if Ebola spread to the U.S. and could we contain it?” are necessary but can be extremely disconcerting. This is why the best thing you can do is stay well-informed and up to date on information concerning this deadly disease.

Freddy is a disfigured dream sttalker who uses a
glove armed with razors tto kill hiis victims in their dreams,
which in the end outcomews in their death in the real world.
Wes Craven says his inspiration for the basis of Krueger's energy stemmed from
a number of stories in the Los Angeles Occasions about a
series of mysterious deaths: All the victims had reported recurring nightmares beforehand, and died in their sleep.

Another way for investors to get in the gold
investing game is to invest through an Exchange-Traded Funds, or ETF.
Coins have the guarantee that comes with being endorsed by a government mint, as well.
So without getting your hands dirty, you could have invested in gold,
via your online stockbroker, with the click of
a mouse.
