Ebola: What We Have Seen So Far May Be Just the Beginning

What do Charles Darwin, Linus Pauling, Albert Einstein, Lord Kelvin and Fred Hoyle all have in common? They all had committed colossal errors in their scientific studies; they all believed something to be true when in fact it was not.

“US scientists state uncertainties loom about Ebola’s transmission, other key facts about the disease need further research before any definitive answers can be found” (Reuters, 2014).

The government insists we all listen to the science when it comes to Ebola, well as we all know science has been wrong before, many times before.

“Some of the things that experts are worried about include Ebola virus penetration through “intact skin”. Medical experts know that a person can become infected if the bodily fluid of an infected person enters through a break in their skin.

What does it mean if the Ebola virus can penetrate intact skin however, in other words a person may not need to have a break in the skin for the virus to enter the body through the skin.”

Can simple contact with exposed skin allow the virus to enter the body? No one really knows, yet.

“The possibility of this happening has not been definitively ruled out, according to hemorrhagic-fever expert Thomas Ksiarek of the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), who co-led a session on Ebola’s transmission routes” (Reuters, 2014).

Other experts question whether the Ebola virus can be spread by those who may not be showing symptoms. Public health officials in the United States and elsewhere insist it cannot. However, according to Dr. Andrew Pavia, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at the University of Utah the possibility of “subclinical transmissions” remains very much an open question.

Experts also wonder whether the “infectious dose” is dependent upon how it enters the body. Additionally, the period between exposure and symptoms appearing is called into question as well. Some believe it may have to do with what fluids a person may have contact with from an infected person. For example, is the incubation period longer if someone contacts the saliva versus the blood of an infected person?

According to Dr. C.J. Peters, who is a field virologist at UTMB estimates that “5 percent of people” can show symptoms, and be in fact infected, and ultimately pass the virus along after an incubation period of three weeks has passed.”
