Here is a video from YT

At this point the cases in the phillipinnes "are showing symptoms of Ebola"  but it is still not confirmed either way. We should know one way or another within the next day or so.

The case in Morocco is confirmed , and they are concerned that he may have spread it to untold number of people so keep it in green.

In the USA, there are concerns in New York with 1 person being listed as a possible case which has caused alarm at 3 hospitals. There are of course at this point 2 confirmed cases that exist in the USA but they are in isolation in Atlanta Georgia.  

Uk iand Italy are confirmed as cleared as tests came back negative.



As for the one in Brazil they are still in the process of confirming whether it is Ebola.

I have updated and cleaned up this thread today. This will make things easier to keep track of in the months ahead.
------edit------------
A quick update. The Ebola outbreak in D.R. Congo is a separate outbreak and strain than the one in Guinea. It is a mutation of Ebola-Z and occurred when a women prepared and ate "bush meat".  Health official who later buried the women became sick shortly afterwards due to burial rituals which include body contact.

A major update this evening with the CDC finally announcing after knowing for over 2 days that a man in Texas has the deadly Ebola virus.

Because Ebola can reside in certain parts of the body for up to 62 days after infection we place any country where there was a confirmed case in purple for period of time.  At this point the patient either died or survived. But, assuming no more cases enter your region then the UK should be completely clear by the first of November.

--------------------Update------------------
Scores of people are reported to have been exposed to Ebola in Dallas Texas.  For more information read this article

--------------------Update------------------
In another startling turn of events another case has been reported on US soil in the state of Hawaii.
The patient was reported to be in isolation and in Texas, there may be thousands who were unknowingly infected by the man who flew in from Liberia.

Breaking update here.  Health workers who took care of the infected man are now infected themselves.  According to reports they followed all protocols which means that it was contracted after they had taken off all their protective gear, meaning they are possibly dealing with the airborne strain known to the CDC as Ebola-G.

"We are evaluating other potential healthcare worker exposures because if this individual was exposed, which they were, it is possible that other individuals were exposed," Frieden said.
Tests by the CDC confirmed the patient had been infected with Ebola.

You know, this whole dam thing is a complete mess. One person flies to the USA and now case after case of people being infected are getting reported. Person b was exposed to person a, and group c was exposed to b , and group d which is even larger in number than a-c were exposed to people in group c and so on.

It should have never happened, but it did, and now there are so many people possibly infected in the USA that its just unheard of. All because of one person who knew they had it and was so selfish that they had to expose others.

I'm sure in the back of his mind he was thinking, "I'll go to america where I can get the cured". You see they have spread it around over there that the USA has a cure so everyone is running away from infected areas and jumping on flights to get to the USA. In fact not too long ago these rumors were so strong and actually so believed that some of their government officials were demanding that the USA start sending the medicine to cure people to their countries.

Well I hate to tell them but we don't. There is no cure and no vaccine in sight. They need to stop telling their people that America has the cure for this thing so that they won't be trying to jump on flights when they know they are infected.

This is all the result of propaganda and lies that have been spread about zmap and other so called drugs. I hate to burst some bubbles but as it has been said numerous times by grim, there is no vaccine, only a mortality rate. There is no vaccine because it mutates so fast that there is no way to say positively that a vaccine for one person will work on another.

Only a couple years ago there were 6 strains, and a handful of mutations, now there are over 300 different mutations of the various main strains. They simply cant keep up.

They have been researching a cure for one strain for 38 (thirty eight) years and still have nothing but a giant goose egg.

Anyway pardon me for the rant people, but this is just the way I see it.

England has deployed a hospital ship to assist with medical care in south africa. people with ebola wont be entering the ship but the ship will assist with other medical care such as malaria brokenbones tarffic accidents etc. the ship will stay out at sea and helicopters wil be used to transport patients and crews to and from the ship over the next 6 months or the military operation

According to WHO it has already past the point of becoming a global crisis. As to when it will wipe everyone out, this depends on how fast that people travel from one place to another or whether they travel at all.

Well some good news. It has been 21 days and not a single new case in Nigeria. Even their isolation wards are now empty so they are finally free

---edit---

Senegal is also now free!

As i previously posted a hospital ship set sail for the south african sierra leonne to assist with medical care. On Monday the 20th the same port in Falmouth Cornwall England recieved word that a ship is due to dock that has come from sierra leonne and another ship is due back a few days after the 1st ship. theses foreign ships from the country where ebola has spread out of control are due to spend between 2-4weeks in Falmouth for a complete refurbisment. this now puts England on alert status

Interesting.  I was just about to take them off the watch list from the last case.
--Map News--
Nigeria is completely cleared today. If no new cases appear in Senegal over the next 13 hours then we will clear them off the map as well. UK has been cleared and changed to alert status.

Yes of course. They have been working on a cure for over 30 years and have not produced a vaccine for a single strain to date. The best they can do is keep people from dying from secondary effects of the virus (dehydration, loss of fluids, loss of appetite , ect,...) and give people meds which slows down its replication rate. These things increase the chance of survival but even with the best care it is still a 50/50 thing.
They gave their latest miracle serum to someone and they lived and claimed it was because of the drug, but then gave it to the priest in Spain and he died which more or less threw the "we got a cure" thing out the window.
Well anyway here is the latest on that front as you requested
As you can see they are doing human trials. Should prove interesting.
