Protect yourself and your family from Ebola | Know How

This Ebola crisis is indeed deadliest in history. Center for Disease Control and prevention has updated recently the ebola toll- Suspected and Confirmed Case Count are 3069, Suspected Case Deaths are 1552 and Laboratory Confirmed Cases are 1752.
With so much happening, here are 15 things that you should know about this virus.

  1. Ebola is aggressively infectious, which means that those infected are highly likely to get sick. But it's not very contagious, meaning it doesn't spread easily.
  2. Ebola doesn't jump from person to person through the air. It's transmitted only through bodily fluids while the infected patient is exhibiting symptoms.
  3. US experts say our health care system would be able to identify and contain the virus swiftly. Thus there are moderate chances of its spreading in our country. Hence, there's no need to panic about the Ebola patients returning to the country.
  4. Symptoms include high fever, bleeding and central nervous system damage
  5. Fruit bats are considered to be virus' natural host.
  6. Ebola kills up to 90% of those infected.
  7. There is no proper vaccine or cure devised till date since its first discovery in 1976.
  8. Many studies and researches point towards finding a cure for the disease, but many doubts persist on its effectiveness.
  9. People with Ebola generally aren't infectious until they're sick
  10. Patients can survive Ebola
  11. Ebola can last two to three weeks, so patients would remain in isolation until their symptoms subside and tests come back negative for the virus.
  12. The only reason the current outbreak is so bad because it has hit in places with poor health infrastructure and facilities.
  13. Signs and symptoms of Ebola include fever (greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F) and severe headache, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, or unexplained bleeding or bruising. Signs and symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola, although 8 to 10 days is most common.
  14. Some reports suggest that the basic techniques for stopping Ebola are well known. The challenge is applying them.
  15. WHO head also says that the virus could be stopped if well managed.

With enough resources poured into the effort, people should be able to contain this outbreak soon now. Meanwhile stay safe with these simple tips:


Decontamination is a necessary process when exposed to such bio-medical threats.

Your Options for Drinking Water in an Emergency


In a survival situation, clean drinking water is your most important resource. Depending on the environmental conditions and your physical activity, a person cannot safely go longer than a few days without water.
If you are embarking on a household preparedness effort, water needs to be at the top of your list. Plan for at least one gallon of water per person per day to satisfy drinking and food-preparation needs. Beyond that, additional water is needed for hygiene.
If you can store purified or city-treated water in a cool dark area, that is an excellent start. Ideally, you want to use new water-storage containers or barrels that meet UN and FDA regulations. You should rotate/freshen your water storage every six months or so unless you treat that water with water preserver concentrate that can extend your shelf life to five years. (Household bleach is not a water preserver. In fact, bleach loses potency very quickly—any bleach that is beyond six months out of the factory is largely worthless for purification purposes.)
Purification
It’s good to have on hand several different capabilities for purifying water at the time it is needed.
Boiling: The old standby and probably the best method is the ability to boil water. Boil for at least 10-15 minutes to kill most bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Chemical disinfection: The next best option is to use a proper dosage of a commercially produced water purification tablet, such as Katadyn Micropur, Coghlan’s, or Potable-Aqua. Iodine products such as tincture of iodine or crystalline iodine are also effective. (Important: iodine can be lethal if used in quantities greater than recommended and iodine-treated water should not be used by pregnant women or consumed by anyone for more than a few weeks at a time.) Note that cryptosporidium and other parasites may not be killed using chemical disinfection methods. Be sure to follow directions for each product with measured water volumes.
Portable water filters: The thing to look for with water filters is the filter’s absolute pore size. Filters are designed to remove parasites (Giardia/Cryptosporidium) and have "absolute” pore sizes of 0.1 to 1-micrometer (the smaller the pore size, the better). They will also remove most diarrhea-causing bacteria. Most portable water filters do not remove viruses so chemical disinfection is recommended after filtration.
Chlorine (NOT a good option): Chlorine has been thought by many to be a reliable way of treating water, but it is risky doing so, since chlorine degrades so quickly (within months of manufacture) and loses its efficacy. Iodine or other stable water-treatment chemicals are more effective.
