Is the Government Being Upfront About the Ebola Risks

by Craig

Surviving an Ebola Economy Crash

by Craig
A virus that has no cure is the perfect harbinger of an economic collapse. For those who think it can't happen in their countries because Ebola is “over there,” then you should know a few facts. The Ebola virus has already left its original boundaries. The experts that are telling you that you have nothing to worry about are already looking worried themselves. In fact, the CDC and WHO knows the potential risks that the Ebola virus can make it outside its host country. This risk is present because of the volume of international travel. That’s why the LAX has [...]

Isolate and Quarantine at Home in Case of Ebola Virus

by Craig
Whether it’s you or someone else you love, you need to separate yourself from others. The best way that you can do this is by using a tent. Just like the tent that can be used to put in place a 21 day quarantine for new people joining your group, you can use the tent for anyone showing signs of the virus. If it’s yourself, go immediately to the isolation tent and if you’re not prepared, you’ll have to arrange for someone to leave supplies without coming into contact with you. Isolation Tent Is Necessary This is why it’s better [...]

What to Do If You See Ebola Symptoms

by Craig
In the event of an emergency such as the fallout from a pandemic, most people will continue to do what they’ve always done - and in the case of the Ebola virus - doing what they’ve always done can be deadly. Just think, if you’re going to head to the hospital because you think you have Ebola symptoms, where do you think the other people experiencing similar symptoms are also going?

Other Areas in the House to Clean

by Craig
Bathroom or toilet area The next area that you should concentrate on sanitizing is the bathroom or your toilet area. Bathrooms are the perfect haven for germs and bacteria to thrive in and it’s one of the easiest places where fluids can splash. Two places that germs often lurk are the toilet handle and the faucets. The reason for this that many people wipe and then touch the toilet handle followed by the faucets. If you or someone else had feces on your hands - even a microscopic amount - then you’ve essentially created a playground for the Ebola virus [...]

Steps to Quarantine Ebola Virus Patients

by Craig
Whenever someone who’s even suspected of having the Ebola virus much less showing symptoms shows up at the hospital, the staff there immediately takes steps to put that person into quarantine. Avoiding general public Once the person is put into quarantine, strict precautions are taken and that person is not allowed to mix with the general public for the safety of others. The medical staff doesn’t want that person causing another swell of infections to begin. That’s why it’s important that you have a quarantine plan already in place so that you’ll know which steps to follow to protect yourself. [...]

How Ebola Is Spread

by Craig
There are numerous ways that you can contract the Ebola virus and many ways that it can be spread. That’s one of the reasons why it’s been so difficult to contain. The Myths Most people mistakenly think that the only way the virus can be spread is through direct contact with someone else who’s symptomatic. Direct human contact is only one of the ways the virus is spread. Surfaces are the second way. The virus is tough enough to live on surfaces as long as 48 hours if the conditions are right for its survival. It doesn’t usually survive long [...]

Symptoms of Ebola Virus

by Craig
Symptoms #1 Flu-like One of the reasons that Ebola is so frightening is because it can mimic the flu at first. Most people won’t go see the doctor when they experience flu-like symptoms. They’ll wait a couple of days to see if they get any better. And because this virus has no cure, that makes it even more dangerous. At the first start of the virus, you may notice that you just feel “off.” Symptoms #2 Headache You might have a headache ranging from mild to severe. Achy muscles are another symptom. Having a lower backache is also a common [...]
