Thanks for the link....



I studied the Ebola virus during my graduate infectious disease class......the Ebola virus is one of the deadliest virus known to man...85% mortality rate within 1 week!

It's imperative to get the flight list and contact all people (as well as crew on board) ASAP and have them go to the hospital for observations....

Freaky - I can't believe she was cleared to fly. Maybe this'll prompt authorities in other countries to screen for communicable diseases prior to allowing pax to board, much in the same way arriving pax are screened for Avian flu and SARS in Asia.

Best wishes for the other pax and crew members.

Damn I thought that virus didn't exist no more. I remember watching the movie and I got freaked out. I'm really scared of all viruses and deseases and this is surely one of the deadliest ones.

So whatr happened? Did the aircraft and passengers got screened by specialists? That could mean a very harmful situation!

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 10):

So true, i actually never thought about what the person may have touched or ofcourse what i had touched.

Although, atleast if i were to have a Cold and pass it on then 99.9999999% of the time i wouldn't kill anyone.

And, in this case she could have touched that aircraft and this VS A346 may have to be Disinfected from head to foot. That is a suitable start, afterall. If that aircraft is still flying, think about all of the people that may be carrying the virus.

Quoting 797 (Reply 11):

Well, there is not much for you to worry about. Movies put in the 'worst' possible scenario to make them much more exciting, but if caught early i think Ebola can be treated and there is a massive chance of survival. In the case of this woman, nobody knew what was wrong with her until it was too late.

Thanks

In the case of Ebola, you can only pass it on through the same was as a Cold or Flu or Vomitting. This woman would not have know that this would happen, so she can hardly be called 'Selfish'.

actually that's incorrect...the Ebola virus (like it's cousin the Marburg virus) can be spread easily....granted this woman probably had no idea she was carrying it......and once it hit, it was basically over..

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 8):
And had been to the Ebola capital of the world?

no...Lesotho is not the "Ebola capital of the world"....Zaire, Sudan, Ivory-Coast and Congo are the highest frequency of the Ebola outbreak...

The Ebola virus is a nasty piece of work, but no need to panic over it. The infectious cycle of the virus ensures that a pandemic is impossible. In the initial stages it is not contagious, so in this case it is nigh impossible that the infected person spread the virus to anyone else aboard the plane and the virus can only be spread through infected bodily fluids. As the disease progresses vomiti and fluids from bodily orifices of the infected person can present a biohazard risk.

Bottom line is that being in a plane with a person experiencing the initial stages of Ebola infection is safe enough. Scary, but safe  Wink

I don't think anyone should be worried about a pandemic, but the people in the plane should be concerned....especially children and the elderly

As I said, no need to worry. In the early stages Ebola is not contagious unless you share a needle with the infected person or share body fluids directly in some other way. So unless the person is vomiting and bleeding from the eyes, mouth and/or anal cavity *on you* you'd be safe from infection.

The woman was vomiting and anyone exposed to that could possibly have been infected *if there was blood in the vomit*, but just sharing the same plane is safe. Asides from the flight attendants who assisted the woman and the people seating immediately next to her no-one could have cought the virus. Even the F/As and the closest passangers are likely to have escaped without infection.

Ebola does not spread like influenza. It must be through infected bodily fluids, such as insterstitial fluid or blood (excluding saliva) and it must enter another person's bodily fluids through direct exposure (such as through a shared needle) or single cellular mucous tissue. An Ebola infected patient in the late stages of the disease sneezing at a person is not going to result in infection automatically. There has to be an exchange in bodily fluids (not saliva) but in the late stages of Ebola infection bleeding out of orifices is a symptom and therefore increases the chance of infection.

Simply put, unless blood from the infected person entered the blood of a non-infected person occurred then no spreading of the virus happened.

that's actually not completely correct....though the usual transmission of the virus is as you stated above, during my graduate infectious diseases class (as well as my other graduate genetics, pharmacology, etc. classes), I had to do an extensive paper on the Ebola virus, and there were reports of the virus spreading via "unconventional" methods....hence, as a prudent measure, the need for everyone on the plane to be checked.....

Of course a prudent measure is certainly for everyone on the plane to be checked, I agree. The unconventional means are, as you know, far less likely so if I was on that plane I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. That woman was in the early stages of infection and Ebola is non-contagious in documented outbreaks in the early stages. Infection and spreading usually occurs in hospitals or shelters where hygene is a rare luxury. I am just adressing the concerns of people who posted above gravely concerned over the safety of the other passengers on the flight.

Hey, nice to see another biologist in these forums. I guess we aviation enthusiasts are found everywhere  Smile

I think the most important point here is that we do not know for certain that this was, in fact, Ebola. The news report says NOTHING about serology testing (i.e. testing of the blood, etc.) and simply states that the symptoms match that of Ebola.

How often do you think a West London hospital actually sees Ebola? They probably had to look it up in a textbook.

There isn't just one type of hemorrhagic fever...less dramatic viruses, such as Yellow Fever, also cause people to bleed out. There are also several variants of ebola, like Marburg or Zaire, and it is important to find out which strain it is as the mortality rate differs. Until we get labratory confirmation of the type of virus, this report is nothing more than the media jumping the gun, and it is rediculous to speculate at this point.

Are flight attendants taught to treat any bodily fluids as potential biohazards? I know when I was working at an amusenment park we were taught not to handle any bodily fluids without gloves, and to use a strong disinfectant.

Yes, they are. Cabin crew are also given special kit to clean up soiled material. Also, in the era of avian flu, they may also have been given masks to wear.

I don't know much about Ebola so please don't think I'm trying to question your expertise. Something doesn't sound right though, so I'm hoping you can help me understand. If the woman was violently ill on the aircraft, and is dead a day later, would she have been considered to be in the early stages of infection while on the aircraft? Wouldn't the early stages have been the flu like symptoms back in South Africa?

Let's wait until the results of the post mortem are out. The report, from a tabloid paper harldy reknown for its journalistic expertise, said she presented symptoms of the ebola virus, but that is not a confirmation of the virus. Aches, pains, vomiting and death can be caused by a number of diseases, including common ones like meningitis.

Ebola has traditionally come from equatorial Africa, while Lesotho is in the temperate regions. It is directly linked to viruses in chimpanzees and is suspected to be started when contaminated chimp meat is eat. As far as I am aware, there are no chimps in Lesotho.

While I wouldn't discount Ebola, the story doesn't quite add up quite yet, IMO.
