https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ebola-virus-outbreak/congo-s-ebola-outbreak-might-be-declared-global-emergency-n993856 A top Red Cross official said Friday he’s “more concerned than I have ever been” about the possible regional spread of the Ebola virus after a new spike in cases, as the World Health Organization met on whether to declare the outbreak in Congo an international health emergency.
Here we go again, couple this with the dumb cunts around the world who won't take vaccines because ???? And this might actually blossom into something
Jesus that’s horrifying. But wait, is there even an Ebola vaccine?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebola_vaccine But with these anti vax morons they'll probably head over there to expose themselves thinking they'll build up an immunity.
If you're dying of Ebola, you should just be given the vaccine anyway. What is there to lose
Aren't vaccines meant to prevent the disease, not cure it? Taking the vaccine when you already have it won't really do anything.
Because having a viral infection is basically the same thing as getting the vaccine, only in the case of a real infection the virus is actually attacking your body. I'm not sure how conclusive it is but a quick search says that antibodies specialized for the ebola virus can be found in the blood of survivors, which suggests that they're immune. Giving them the vaccine wouldn't have any effect at all, they're already being 'vaccinated' for all intents and purposes. Hell the first 'vaccine' was basically just getting infected by cowpox (Variolae vaccinae) because that would cause the body to produce antibodies which are also effective against smallpox. A vaccine is just a means of tricking the body's immune system into preparing for an eventual intruder. To 'do its homework ahead of time', so to speak. But with a live infection, your body is scrambling to build the immunity to chase out the infection while it's in the process of doing damage.
Antibodies stay in survivors for about 10 years, yeah
