Ebola can survive on surfaces for almost TWO MONTHS

Now, if that headline does not make you stop and take notice then nothing will!  Being forewarned is to be fore armed.  Imagine an ebola infected person with mild symptoms gets off a plane in New York.  They walk down the street sneezing and coughing.  They go into a restaurant, buffet, or movie theatre.  They have active germs on their hands, and touch the arm or underside of the table.  They touch the guard rail going upstairs to an establishment.  It’s 40 degrees outside, and Ebola germs are living there for 50 days!  Every man, woman or child who touches that surface has been exposed to Ebola and is walking around for 3 weeks without a clue they have been infected, and we have people complaining about being put in quarantine to see if they are ill!

This is why America needs to shut off all ports of entry from hot zones.  All passengers need to be categorized, their names shared with states so if they show up flying into your state or entering your ER room, you have a heads up!  The government is forcing this illness on Americans and they will force quarantine on us.  Had they been serious about keeping it out then they would have done just as the other African countries had done and shut our borders to the hot zone countries and safety quarantined our doctors/ nurse / support staff who are coming home.  Oddly, in the old days they did this themselves in Africa before heading home.  Something is up folks, and it’s time to wake up.  Colloidal silver /nano silver particularly has been shown to kill Ebola.

This study shows some very alarming facts for you to arm yourself and do what’s smart for you and your family:

Ebola can survive on surfaces for almost TWO MONTHS: Tests reveal certain strains survive for weeks when stored at low temperatures

By Mark Prigg and Victoria Woollaston for MailOnline

  • Research claims certain strains of Ebola can remain on surfaces for 50 days
  • It survived the longest on glass surfaces stored at 4° (39°F)
  • Centres for Disease Control and Prevention claims Ebola typically lives on a ‘dry’ surface for hours – including doorknobs and tables
  • But when stored in moist conditions such in mucus, this is extended 
  • Survival time depends on the surface, and the room temperature
  • Virus can be killed using household bleach and people must come into direct contact with the sample to risk infection 

For their 2010 paper, ‘The survival of filoviruses in liquids, on solid substrates and in a dynamic aerosol’, Sophie Smither and her colleagues tested two particular filoviruses on a variety of surfaces.

These were the Lake Victoria marburgvirus (Marv), and Zebov.

Each was placed into guinea pig tissue samples and tested for their ability to survive in different liquids, and on different surfaces at different temperatures, over a 50-day period.

When stored at 4° (39°F), by day 26, viruses from three of the samples were successfully extracted; Zebov on the glass sample, and Marv on both glass and plastic.

By day 50, the only sample from which the virus could be recovered was the Zebov from tissue on glass.

‘This study has demonstrated that filoviruses are able to survive and remain infectious, for extended periods when suspended within liquid and dried onto surfaces,’ explained the researchers.

‘Data from this study extend the knowledge on the survival of filoviruses under different conditions and provide a basis with which to inform risk assessments and manage exposure.’

The researchers do stress that these tests were carried out in a controlled lab environment, and not in the real world, but published their findings to highlight the survival rates.

Last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its Ebola guidelines following the rise in infections.

Ebola (pictured) was discovered in 1976 and is a member of the Filoviridae family. This family includes the Zaire ebolavirus (Zebov), which was first identified in 1976 and is the most virulent; Sudan ebolavirus, (Sebov); Tai Forest ebolavirus; Ebola-Reston (Rebov), and Bundibugyo ebolavirus (Bebov)

  1. TY: not really news to me,

    I’ll be in JFK sooner than later heading back to my other home. I lost 30K in the silver market in 08. Looks like it might be time to reinvest. …

    This shit really sucks. … … … … … … —

    Hug & kiss,

    I came back to the file that I keep of your every post Christina. … You know and I know that life is going to kill us all. Weapons in the form of bugs though???

    Nothing here because it would be so foul. …
