(NaturalNews) Media sources are incorrectly reporting that “aerosol transmission is not possible” with Ebola. This statement is factually incorrect and probably needs to be addressed. As clearly explained by the Public Health Agency of Canada:
“INFECTIOUS DOSE: 1 – 10 aerosolized organisms are sufficient to cause infection in humans.”
Ebola, you see, can “ride” on aerosolized particles of blood, mucous and other body fluids. Someone sneezing, for example, can cause Ebola viruses to be aerosolized where they land on other people’s hands or faces. It only takes one virus entering the corner of your eye (or the corner of your mouth) to set off a full-blown infection.
In fact, a 2012 BBC article entitled “Growing concerns over ‘in the air’ transmission of Ebola” states: (3)
Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species. In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them. In their experiments, the pigs carrying the virus were housed in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the macaques were showing clinical signs typical of ebola and were euthanised.
Ebola survives for days outside the host
Even worse, Ebola is a strong survivor outside a host. Here’s what the Public Health Agency of Canada says:
SURVIVAL OUTSIDE HOST: The virus can survive in liquid or dried material for a number of days. Infectivity is found to be stable at room temperature or at 4 C for several days, and indefinitely stable at -70 C. Infectivity can be preserved by lyophilisation.
This clearly states that Ebola viruses can survive for several days on common objects such as door knobs or household surfaces. If an infected Ebola victim runs around touching such common objects after cleaning blood or mucous from his nose, another innocent victim can easily infect himself by touching the same objects and then eating some food that places the virus in his mouth.
Ebola is very EASY to catch
Even all of us who are naturally skeptical of “official” statements from the government must remember that just because the government benefits from an Ebola pandemic doesn’t mean there is no pandemic happening. Yes, infectious disease outbreaks will be exploited, exaggerated and possibly even entirely fabricated from time to time by the medical-government fascism machine, but we can’t let our own guard down and pretend Ebola is “difficult to catch.”
Ebola is considered a level-4 biohazard. If Ebola were difficult to catch, you wouldn’t need to wear protective biohazard suits when being near patients who are infected with it.
Here’s what the Public Health Agency of Canada says about handling Ebola:
RISK GROUP CLASSIFICATION: Risk Group 4.
CONTAINMENT REQUIREMENTS: Containment Level 4 facilities, equipment, and operational practices for work involving infectious or potentially infectious materials, animals, and cultures.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Personnel entering the laboratory must remove street clothing, including undergarments,
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: All activities with infectious material should be conducted in a biological safety cabinet (BSC) in combination with a positive pressure suit, or within a class III BSC line. Centrifugation of infected materials must be carried out in closed containers placed in sealed safety cups, or in rotors that are unloaded in a biological safety cabinet. The integrity of positive pressure suits must be routinely checked for leaks. The use of needles, syringes, and other sharp objects should be strictly limited. Open wounds, cuts, scratches, and grazes should be covered with waterproof dressings. Additional precautions should be considered with work involving animal activities.
Does that sound like a protocol for a viral epidemic that’s difficult to catch? Not at all.
