The CDC feels that the Ebola threat is serious enough that they just released these steps to help you protect yourself from contracting the Ebola Virus. It would be wise to have some rubber gloves for emergency situations.

Information from the Centers for Disease Control

Tuesday, September 30, 2014  

If you must travel to an area affected by the 2014 Ebola outbreak, protect yourself by doing the following:

Wash hands frequently or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Avoid contact with blood and body fluids of any person, particularly someone who is sick.

Do not handle items that may have come in contact with an infected person’s blood or body fluids.

Do not touch the body of someone who has died from Ebola.

Do not touch bats and nonhuman primates or their blood and fluids and do not touch or eat raw meat prepared from these animals.

Avoid hospitals where Ebola patients are being treated. The U.S. Embassy or consulate is often able to provide advice on medical facilities.

Seek medical care immediately if you develop fever (temperature of 101.5F/ 38.6C) and any of the other following symptoms: headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, or unexplained bruising or bleeding.

Limit your contact with other people until and when you go to the doctor. Do not travel anywhere else besides a healthcare facility.

CDC has issued a Warning, Level 3 travel notice for three countries. U.S. citizens should avoid all nonessential travel to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. CDC has issued an Alert, Level 2 travel notice for Nigeria. Travelers to Nigeria should take enhanced precautions to prevent Ebola. CDC has also issued an Alert, Level 2 travel notice for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

A small number of Ebola cases have been reported in the DRC, though current information indicates that this outbreak is not related to the ongoing Ebola outbreaks in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

  1. i don’t have to even read this one. Let me sum it up for the simple peoples: Wash your hands, forget the herbs and superfoods, they don’t work, get your damn vaccines! Wash your hands, wash your hands, forget the green teas and vitamin C, it’s been proven in Governmental studies to have no effect on Ebola. Wash your hands, get your damn vaccines! Forget the vitamins and minerals, they’ve been proven in Governmental studies not to work. It’s important to be vaccinated against all diseases so don’t forget those flu shots too, wash your hands. Collodial Silver will kill you and has been proven to have no effect on Ebola… ad nauseam.

  2. no kidding Chris…and I am a bit pissed this morning about something different but kinda similar.. My lady friend, who I care very much for has a thyroid situation. They wont even consider pig hormones they only promote pharma drugs..That is what obamacare is, if you are sick, the government will pay pharma industries to give you pills…But if you want natural cures, there is not one doctor in this city that accepts the Oregon Health Care plan. They make you sick, then they give you pills that make the pharma industry rich, while only killing you with their fricking pills…Sorry Henry, I usually keep my language nice when posting, but sometimes, well, f#@k you all, sell out doctors, obamacare, the entire system…f#@k you.
    ok, I am better now, thanks for letting me get this out.
