Hospital clothing contaminated

https://www.ajicjournal.org/article/S0196-6553(11)00117-9/abstract

Hang on, aren’t women forced into gowns without underwear? Then told to sit down? Same gowns worn by other women before?

Could that source of fomite explain previous studies of HPV infection, among virgins?

For example,  a small study published in 2009 indicated that not only were 15% of all stethoscopes tested contaminated with MRSA, but also that the MRSA on the stethoscopes had survived there for upwards of 60 days!

Also, most hospitals do not allow artifical fingernails or nail enhancement on health care workers because the false nails (fomites) consistently have higher bacterial loads than natural nails. Also, there have been a number of studies (example) where doctor’s neckties were found to be commonly contaminated with bacteria. Not all that shocking when you think about how often men wash their ties?

Why are doctors wearing ties?

But most recently, a new  study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, 60-65% of scrubs and lab coats of health care workers tested in the report were contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria.  The pockets, sleeves, and abdominal areas were tested. Additionally, 21 of nurse’s samples and 6 from the doctor’s samples taken were drug resistant.  Eight of the samples were identified as MRSA (methicillin resistant Staph aureus ).

This is not exactly news, as there are several previous articles detailing how bacteria can survive on various cloth and plastic surfaces, as well as on lab coats in general.

Imagine how gross plastic Ikea furniture is…

eww…

Hospitals  and doctors are struggling to get it right, though. Just announced in 2010, the  DocFroc:

lab coats and scrubs that are embedded with Tri-Active, an FDA approved silver-based antimicrobial compound that can kill resistant micro-organisms such as MRSA, ECOLI and Salmonella.

It appears that the most important factor in prevention of disease is to simply better identify what has been transferring disease in the first place.

If they believed in germ theory they wouldn’t avoid disposable specula to save a few cents.

How much is half the population’s life worth? Plenty of baby health and defect issues could be avoided with proper female health care. This is part of the reason women are scared to have kids, so called trad men instantly stop giving a shit after conception. If she dies prematurely of cervical cancer though, they hand wave it away because while they pretend to care about forced vaccination, they don’t even pretend to care about forced, dangerous ‘pelvic exams’.

HPV contaminating gyms, doctor’s tables and virgins

Figured I’d linked this. Not clickbait.

What happens when you let the sluts run rampant.

https://www.womenshealthmag.com/health/a19929167/hpv-without-having-sex/

School gyms too, health hazard. It can even be on the floor.

Study link from women’s health:

http://www.publish.csiro.au/nid/164.htm

“Researchers analyzed 51 studies on HPV transmission, and they noticed that the virus was found in the genital tracts of 51 percent of female virgins. This left them asking: If not through sex, how are people contracting it?”

VIRUS.

Plus the speculums they can’t actually clean?

“The second possibility makes us even more squeamish. You might be able pick up HPV by coming into contact with an infected surface at the doctor’s office or in public places like the gym. If the examining table or bike seat you sit down on in your booty shorts hasn’t been properly cleaned, you could be at risk.”

Why did people wear so many layers of clothing in public?

History was so weird. And gloves! How absurd!

Who wears gloves, the Queen? She isn’t long-lived, is she?

I’m just picturing the HPV strains of Hollywood and its forced kissing, on and off screen.

HPV in the brain

Yes, in.

http://www.miriamgrossmanmd.com/say-its-not-so-hpv-in-the-brain/

“We know that HPV can cross the placenta and infect the fetus. In one study, this happened in over twelve per cent of women with HPV.”

As always it’s the innocent who suffer.
The sins of the father…

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+34%3A7&version=ESV

“keeping steadfast love for thousands,[a] forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.”

And before you think I’m man-hating, no.

It’s the data.

https://www.sciencenews.org/article/half-adult-males-carry-hpv
“The virus notorious for causing cervical cancer in women also turns up frequently in men and can hang on unnoticed for months or even years, researchers report online March 1 in Lancet. The study solidifies earlier research indicating that human papillomavirus is highly prevalent in men and strengthens the case for vaccinating men and boys against it, the report’s authors say.”

Imagine my shock.

“The study, in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that 11 million men and 3.2 million women in the United States had oral HPV infections. Among them, 7 million men and 1.4 million women had strains that can cause cancers of the throat, tongue and other areas of the head and neck.”
“The rate was higher among men who also had genital HPV. (Almost half of men aged 18 to 60 have a genital HPV infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)”

TLDR?

It’s a male-carried disease.
By far (that was a 5:1 male to female ratio, deny it).

7/1.4=5 for the illiterates at home.

https://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv-and-men.htm
The penile cancer risk for men goes unmentioned. Some informed consent, right? Feel empowered yet?
No, there is currently no approved test for HPV in men.”
Routine testing (also called ‘screening’) to check for HPV or HPV-related disease before there are signs or symptom, is not recommended by the CDC”
They want the men to spread it.

Back to the original doctor.

This is major news, and I’m wondering – why no headlines about it? There were no press conferences with Dr Crino, and no statements from SIECUS or Planned Parenthood, our leaders in “comprehensive” sexuality education.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

There’s a double standard at work: if research suggested that sugary drinks cause fetal malformations, it surely would be announced with alarm by every media outlet.

Cover-up isn’t a double standard but okay.

With sexual health it’s always been different. The negative consequences of sexual license are often ignored or minimized. Young people are led to believe that with condoms and STI testing they’re safe, or safe enough. But it’s not so.

“Free lust” is anything but free of consequences. If only the Bible mentioned fornication and how sinning against oneself is different.

I believe that one day there will be congressional hearings about the persistent whitewashing of STIs, the exaggerated efficacy of condoms, and the endorsement by sex educators of high risk behaviors. Until then, the madness continues.”

One day there might be real science, we can all dream!

They make so much money off pelvic exams, which by the way, were pioneered in Nazi concentration camps!

And that’s just the tip of the hooker berg.
It was the same with syphilis and other diseases. Men would catch it, usually from hookers and infect their wife (or eventual wife) and their children would have medical issues (look up the syphilis skulls). Deliberate honeypots for this purpose would bring down an entire nation quickly via its leaders. Wouldn’t it, France?

We have DNA testing to trace precise strains of types but that’s small comfort.

If you can get it from a handshake or a peck on the cheek (children, Europeans) nobody is safe.

New York City Has Biggest Tuberculosis Spike in 26 Years

You’re thinking America. I’m thinking planes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_busiest_city_airport_systems_by_passenger_traffic#2017_statistics_(provisional)

#2  NYC

135,514,082 total passengers last year.

You couldn’t design a better way to spread disease than a plane.

Low oxygen, recycled air, heat of the bodies, humidity, pollution, stress.

http://www.askthepilot.com/questionanswers/cabin-air-quality/

 In reality, the air is very clean.

sure it is, please don’t sue

On all modern aircraft, passengers and crew breathe a mixture of fresh and recirculated air. Using this combination rather than fresh air only makes it easier to regulate temperature and helps maintain a bit of humidity (more on the humidity in a moment). The supply is bled from the compressor sections of the engines.

So even the fresh stuff is from the dirtiest thing on the plane.

http://fortune.com/2017/08/09/dangerous-cabin-fumes-planes/

These smells are usually found in jet engine “bleed air,” which is outside air that’s been shunted from the engines into an air conditioning system and then to the cabin. In various systems—cabin pressurization, water-tank storage pressure, even heating to dissipate wing ice—this air is highly useful to the plane’s operation.

Yet, when engine seals deteriorate, the bleed air can mix with fumes from high-temperature synthetic engine oil. At high-enough concentrations, flight crews and passengers can grow ill, forcing pilots to divert to the closest airport. The latest publicly known incident was Aug. 2, when a Florida-bound JetBlue Airways Corp. flight diverted to Oklahoma City, where several people were treated for breathing difficulties. In October 2016, a British Airways Airbus A380 bound for London from California diverted to Vancouver after all 25 crew members became ill. Cabin fumes were suspected in that case.

Then the crew found a suitcase of money in each of their hotel rooms.
They felt fine.

BTW, these cause brain damage. If you couldn’t guess.

Given the potential for catastrophe, these “toxic fume events” have spurred airline labor organizations to lobby for passage of a U.S. Senate measure called the Cabin Air Safety Act. 

It should be illegal to gas people.

Already?

Of the extreme cases

“Fume events” happen an estimated 2.6 times a day.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1413867017304737

 The disease was prevalent with ultraviolet radiation over 17 MJ/m2 (67.8%; p = <0.001); relative humidity between 31.0% and 69.0% (95.8% of cases; p = <0.00); 12 h of daily sunlight or more (40.6%; p = 0.001); and temperatures between 20 °C and 23 °C (72.4%; p = <0.001).

Planes are all exposed to cosmic rays. That’s worse than regular UV.

They don’t bother to shield it because that would be expensive and raise fuel costs and who cares if your sperm gets slower, you can’t have kids or get a neurological condition years from now?

They don’t have those little modesty covers on planes or in airport scanners, but we use them for X-rays. Hmm.

http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20131113-the-supernova-inside-your-plane

Cosmic radiation exposure levels during flights vary according to altitude, latitude and the space weather at the time. Typically, passengers flying from London to Chicago could expect to be exposed to around 4.8mrem, and those travelling from Washington DC to Los Angeles would be exposed to close to 2mrem. This compares to an airport body scanner which delivers around 0.1mrem and a chest X-ray that can vary between 2mrem and 10mrem.

As people travel more often and further away, frequent travellers should be aware of their exposure levels, says Mike Lockwood, professor of space environment physics at Reading University in the UK. “No need to panic, but cosmic radiation should not be ignored,” he says.

… “Airlines rotate staff around flight routes so nobody does exclusively polar routes,” says Lockwood.

And that’s why humans can’t live at the North Pole, obviously elves are mutants.

In the US, pilots and flight attendants have been officially classed as “radiation workers” by the Federal Aviation Administration since 1994. Staff regularly working on high-latitude flights are exposed to more radiation than workers in nuclear power plants. Despite this, the airlines don’t measure the radiation exposure of their staff, or set safe limits on the doses they can safely receive.

…People who have been unlucky enough to get caught in such an event should be informed, he adds. “It would not be wise for them to risk a second such exposure, and more regular health checks would be a good idea, as we already do for recognised radiation workers”. According to NASA, a strong solar storm in late October 2003 subjected passengers on polar flights – from Chicago to Beijing, for instance – to radiation well above the limit recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection.

“There are no studies that give the actual risk factor, but you certainly wouldn’t want it to happen twice to one individual.”

I feel safe.

Would it be possible to shield planes?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

After all, crew quarters onboard the International Space Station, which is located at the outskirts of the Earth’s magnetosphere, are lined with high-density polyethylene several centimetres thick. The hydrogen atoms in it are great at absorbing and dispersing radiation.

The airline industry is increasingly using carbon fibre-based composites to build planes because of their strength and low weight. These are much better protection against cosmic radiation than standard aluminium, and metals in general, says physicist Nasser Barghouty at Nasa’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama

So no, they’re doing nothing.

https://aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/25534/how-do-pilots-avoid-radiation

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/c34a/2213f145c0e8b6552650e6e559ffdb5d3328.pdf

The exposure from cosmic ray radiation to the workers and public is a new aspects of exposures that was caused by the development of science and technology. This relation is no more than the  developing procedure of the ICRP activities from X-ray and radium control to nuclear reactors, fuel recycling facilities, radioactive wastes and large accelerators. High technology of the 20th century accomplished not only the development of airplane but also the space vehicles. We accepted the benefit of a high speed transportation of the jet flight and the adventurous space mission. But for the exposure of cosmic ray radiation is not so clearly recognized as a risk source.
In recent years the peoples concern to the environmental risk is becoming high. Some groups are beginning to say the risk from the practice of flight in air or space. And several groups have a real fear to the exposure from cosmic ray radiation…..

Cosmic rays are ideal for microbes seeking to mutate.

IDEAL.

UV can pause TB from replicating, so you could have it the entire flight and show nothing until you get off.

If your immune system is weakened (rays, diet, stress), vaccines won’t work.

Symptoms and signs of TB vary significantly with age, immune status, infected site, and severity of disease.

It’s frequently asymptomatic.

Talking, coughing and breathing spread it.

The immune response to M. tuberculosis infection involves a complex cellular process which is not fully
understood, and therefore presents challenges for the design of new TB vaccines.

How do vaccines for it work?

The immune system is not able to completely control and clear the infection which progresses to the latent state.19

TIL Many people already have it.

Latent infection
LTBI is defined as a state of persistent immune response
to stimulation by M. tuberculosis antigens without
evidence of clinically manifested active TB disease. There
is no gold standard test for LTBI. Either tuberculin skin
testing (TST) or an IFN-γ release assay (IGRA) can be
used to test for LTBI; these tests are not requirements
for initiating TB preventive treatment in HIV-infected
patients or in household contacts aged <5 years.25 WHO
guidelines on LTBI address the probability of active TB
disease progression in specific risk groups, the underlying
epidemiology and burden of TB, resource availability,
and likelihood of broader public health impact.

Fall on the sword for the rich guys.

“vaccine error” noted as side effect, top of page 18

then

“Evidence on the rates of adverse events following BCG vaccination is limited and most are based on passive reports. “

Comforting.

They don’t care because they don’t look.

Disseminated BCG disease is seen mainly in
persons with primary immunodeficiencies (and family
outbreaks may occur if this complication is not recognized
before all are given BCG) or HIV infection.81 Incidence
has been estimated at 2–34 per million but in an
outbreak in indigenous populations of Canada (Canadian
First Nations) a rate of 205 (95% CI: 42–600) per
million vaccinated was reported.83 There are several
reports that BCG vaccination of children and adults in
leprosy-endemic populations may occasionally induce
paucibacillary leprosy lesions.

…Evidence regarding BCG vaccination of very preterm and extremely preterm infants is limited.

If they don’t collect the data, they can claim ignorance when it comes out.
The evidence will always be limited if they don’t fund studies. Still, they’re giving it to as many babies as possible.

Not how the Hippocratic Oath works. Vaccines run contrary, you cannot treat healthy people.

page 20 mentions travelers specifically

In countries with low TB incidence,
studies have found that selective vaccination of target
populations, such as immigrants from high-incidence
countries and health-care workers, is more cost-effective
than universal BCG vaccination.

Then why do ours push for universal? To suck up to NGOs like the WHO.

They don’t care about you.

The available live attenuated vaccines are safe and effective

No, there are cases where live vaccines can infect others.
So in a pandemic, the people carrying the live version might be more of a risk. They’ll seem fine but be totally contagious.

http://nrvs.info/faqs/can-vaccines-cause-or-spread-diseases/

“There is a theoretical risk that live attentuated vaccines like the MMR can be found in body fluids (known as shedding), but that does NOT mean they are capable of causing the disease in the person vaccinated, …”

note the evasion, the person who got the vaccine is fine! ignore the dead bodies around them

so impossible they got a name for it

if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a fucking duck
if it contaminates bodily fluids required to spread, and can spread that very disease, it IS that exact bloody disease!

https://www.westonaprice.org/studies-show-that-vaccinated-individuals-spread-disease/

can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of a disease

Vaccine failure is widespread; vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent and recent outbreaks of diseases such as whooping cough, mumps and measles have occurred in fully vaccinated populations.14,15 Flu vaccine recipients become more susceptible to future infection after repeated vaccination.16, 17

fact fact fact

100% isn’t enough, the premise of immunization is false
100% are not eligible, at least due to other illnesses, poor immune function, medications

“Health officials should require a two-week quarantine of all children and adults who receive vaccinations,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “This is the minimum amount of time required to prevent transmission of infectious diseases to the rest of the population, including individuals who have been previously vaccinated.”

“Vaccine failure and failure

refusal

to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals,” says Manookian, “CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”

I’ve warned certain biologists, beware the r-type (or anyone narcissistic-inclined) who suddenly wants to meet up when something medical is making the rounds and only for the duration of their (secreted) contagion. I saw it recently in the field during a widespread stomach condition, others had witnessed the same tactics. Few of them are consciously aware of this impulse to socialize (above their average) but the aware ones choose people they hate.

If you get a call from the blue by a former acquaintance or enemy, to meet up and catch up, delay a couple of months and see if they’re still keen. They will not be.

Maybe ask them if they’d got that illness currently going around, few will lie if asked directly about it. Narcissists like taunting their victims and that way they can say they warned you.

back to the WHO

The development of new vaccines is a high research
priority. There is a need for vaccines that would provide
greater protection than BCG, preventing all forms of TB
including drug-resistant TB, as well as reactivation of
TB, and that would be effective in all age groups including
HIV-infected persons and perform consistently in
all populations. The development of more effective
vaccines against leprosy is also encouraged.

>drug-resistant
>let’s solve it with more drugs!

full derp mode today huh

Let’s harm everyone else’s health for the minimally possible outcome of helping someone with HIV. /s

Medicine doesn’t work like that, it’s utilitarian and individual. To medicate person A to save person B (even if it were a guarantee, which it is not) is actually illegal, it’s assault at the very least (some deliberate infections are ABH or maybe GBH with intent, since they know the risk).

Long-term studies could usefully explore BCG vaccine effectiveness, the duration of BCG-derived protection, particularly in temperate climate settings, and the effect of BCG vaccination on all cause morbidity and mortality.

They don’t want to look long-term for totally honest reasons but trust them, it’s safe!

The end of the last page. How many people would last that long?

Probably the same people to read a recent fact sheet.

http://www.who.int/en/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/tuberculosis

Dated FEB 2018

  • Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide.
  • Seven countries account for 64% of the total, with India leading the count, followed by Indonesia, China, Philippines, Pakistan, Nigeria, and South Africa.

At least a quarter to a third of the global population right there.

Always look on the bright side of life…

anyway moving on awkward 10 doctor what wut wtf

  • TB is a leading killer of HIV-positive people: in 2016, 40% of HIV deaths were due to TB.

Technically people with HIV finished off by the TB were still killed by the HIV.

They’re so dishonest.

A person with HIV bumped off with a cold wasn’t killed by the fucking sniffles.

Anything to make their stats look better I guess.

  • Multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) remains a public health crisis and a health security threat. WHO estimates that there were 600 000 new cases with resistance to rifampicin – the most effective first-line drug, of which 490 000 had MDR-TB.

It’s almost like the pathological altruism applied to hopeless Third World cases keep the microbes alive long enough to kill the host but then escape them, evolved.

Look up transmission vectors, the difference between outbreak and epidemic. The creation of human vectors. Unlike other vectors, humans can board planes.

If only we had a theory of this biological evolution involving lots of death like a kinda… natural selection of bleeding heart twits.

  • Globally, TB incidence is falling at about 2% per year. This needs to accelerate to a 4–5% annual decline to reach the 2020 milestones of the End TB Strategy.
  • Ending the TB epidemic by 2030 is among the health targets of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Get them to stop shitting in the drinking water for starters.
Shitting in public, China.
Not washing their hands.

“Why oh why can’t we eradicate TB and leprosy like those weirdly clean white people?”

Keep drinking from the corpse-ridden Ganges, India. Let’s waste precious medication on idiots. White tourists still want to bathe in it.

Trigger warning: human remains.

If you aren’t civilized enough to bury your dead and know it causes disease (they know, we told them about germ theory immediately in the 19th century), why should we help? If someone juggles chainsaws, don’t be surprised if they lose an arm. They refuse to civilize even if it kills them. Why is our Government expected to run India? They told us they didn’t want our rule. Leave them to it.

Edit: they are literally drinking TB-infected “corpse juice”, actual term.

It’s impossible to eradicate ancient diseases like TB without genociding all the vectors into Western countries. You need a marking system like avoiding plague families. We did that and it’s why we’re here to talk about it.

Edit: sailors used to be so “superstitious” they ran a border cum disease patrol and threw overboard anyone with dodgy symptoms. Outcome: they lived. Why? They read the omens.

They can’t transmit it if they’re six foot under (and no longer hosts and carriers). That’s how Black Death stopped being a thing despite taking more cargo from Asia where the disease originated (Asia and Africa, hotbeds of every shitty disease).

WHO:

Tuberculosis is curable and preventable.

Lie.

About one-quarter of the world’s population has latent TB, which means people have been infected by TB bacteria but are not (yet) ill with the disease and cannot transmit the disease.

During good times. 1/4.

And how can it be latent if you can cure it? They are such confident con artists they tend to lie on the same page.

When a person develops active TB disease, the symptoms (such as cough, fever, night sweats, or weight loss) may be mild for many months. This can lead to delays in seeking care, and results in transmission of the bacteria to others. People with active TB can infect 10–15 other people through close contact over the course of a year. Without proper treatment, 45% of HIV-negative people with TB on average and nearly all HIV-positive people with TB will die.


https://web.archive.org/web/20120823143802/http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs104/en/

  • Tuberculosis (TB) is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest killer worldwide due to a single infectious agent.
  • People infected with TB bacteria have a lifetime risk of falling ill with TB of 10%.

That wasn’t in the new version.

They aren’t hiding anything, don’t be paranoid.

Plague bad – Science

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2017-11-health-madagascar-plague-outbreak.html

“A large outbreak of plague, including the rare form known as pneumonic plague, has health officials in Madagascar working to prevent the bacterial infection from spreading to neighboring countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) says there have been more than 1,800 confirmed, probable or suspected cases of plague since Aug. 1, including 127 deaths.
Dr. Pritish Tosh, an infectious diseases specialist at Mayo Clinic says, “Public officials are concerned about this going on in Madagascar and potentially moving to neighboring areas. At this point, I think it’s unlikely that this is going to go much farther beyond that just because by the time people are able to transmit, they are pretty sick.””

I think it’s unlikely – thank you, official science people!

Note something in common with the recent form of Ebola – airborne transmission.

What circulates on a flight?

All these diseases are evolving beyond bodily fluids and physical contact.
They’re atomising between their human ‘vectors’.

Obviously this has been predicted, ever since Malthus but by states too.
https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2014/06/02/reading-global-strategic-trends-2007-2036-document/
I singled out a passage on the subject, it was so overt.

“A major pandemic may be the instrument that causes a reverse in the process of globalization as national responses to contain infection will involve significant restrictions on personal mobility and interaction over a lengthy period. Some states may even be destabilized by the effort and resources required to address the situation””

Well, it wouldn’t be the worst thing.

It’s almost like borders formed for a reason. Same reason we used to trebuchet plague-ridden bodies into our enemys’ fortresses.

This is how we do things in Europe.

White people. Bitchier than yow.

Ebola workers need respiratory protection, but it can’t be airborne, right?

http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2014/09/commentary-health-workers-need-optimal-respiratory-protection-ebola

Highlights;

We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks.1

There has been a lot of on-line and published controversy about whether Ebola virus can be transmitted via aerosols. Most scientific and medical personnel, along with public health organizations, have been unequivocal in their statements that Ebola can be transmitted only by direct contact with virus-laden fluids2,3 and that the only modes of transmission we should be concerned with are those termed “droplet” and “contact.”

These statements are based on two lines of reasoning. The first is that no one located at a distance from an infected individual has contracted the disease, or the converse, every person infected has had (or must have had) “direct” contact with the body fluids of an infected person. [DS: “must have”, comforting]

This reflects an incorrect and outmoded understanding of infectious aerosols, which has been institutionalized in policies, language, culture, and approaches to infection control. We will address this below. Briefly, however, the important points are that virus-laden bodily fluids may be aerosolized and inhaled while a person is in proximity [CDC paper] to an infectious person and that a wide range of particle sizes can be inhaled and deposited throughout the respiratory tract.

The second line of reasoning is that respirators or other control measures for infectious aerosols cannot be recommended in developing countries because the resources, time, and/or understanding for such measures are lacking.4

…Medical and infection control professionals have relied for years on a paradigm for aerosol transmission of infectious diseases based on very outmoded research and an overly simplistic interpretation of the data….

Early aerobiologists were not able to measure small particles near an infectious person and thus assumed such particles existed only far from the source. They concluded that organisms capable of aerosol transmission (termed “airborne”) can only do so at around 3 feet or more from the source. [DS: touchable surfaces do not exist, apparently] Because they thought that only larger particles would be present near the source, they believed people would be exposed only via large “droplets” on their face, eyes, or nose.

Modern research, using more sensitive instruments and analytic methods, has shown that aerosols emitted from the respiratory tract contain a wide distribution of particle sizes—including many that are small enough to be inhaled.5,6 Thus, both small and large particles will be present near an infectious person.

As noted by early aerobiologists, liquid in a spray aerosol, such as that generated during coughing or sneezing, will quickly evaporate,7 which increases the concentration of small particles in the aerosol. Because evaporation occurs in milliseconds, many of these particles are likely to be found near the infectious person.

The current paradigm also assumes that only “small” particles (less than 5 micrometers [mcm]) can be inhaled and deposited in the respiratory tract. This is not true. Particles as large as 100 mcm (and perhaps even larger) can be inhaled into the mouth and nose. Larger particles are deposited in the nasal passages, pharynx, and upper regions of the lungs, while smaller particles are more likely to deposit in the lower, alveolar regions. And for many pathogens, infection is possible regardless of the particle size or deposition site.

It’s time to abandon the old paradigm of three mutually exclusive transmission routes for a new one that considers the full range of particle sizes both near and far from a source. In addition, we need to factor in other important features of infectivity, such as the ability of a pathogen to remain viable in air at room temperature and humidity and the likelihood that systemic disease can result from deposition of infectious particles in the respiratory system or their transfer to the gastrointestinal tract.

We recommend using “aerosol transmissible” rather than the outmoded terms “droplet” or “airborne” to describe pathogens that can transmit disease via infectious particles suspended in air.

…Being at first skeptical that Ebola virus could be an aerosol-transmissible disease, we are now persuaded by a review of experimental and epidemiologic data that this might be an important feature of disease transmission, particularly in healthcare settings.

Some pathogens are limited in the cell type and location they infect. …

HIV infects T-helper cells in the lymphoid tissues and is primarily a bloodborne pathogen with low probability for transmission via aerosols. [Throwaway Q: What’s to stop it hooking up with HIV or some other virus?]

Ebola virus, on the other hand, is a broader-acting and more non-specific pathogen that can impede the proper functioning of macrophages and dendritic cells—immune response cells located throughout the epithelium.15,16Epithelial tissues are found throughout the body, including in the respiratory tract.

…Many body fluids, such as vomit, diarrhea, blood, and saliva, are capable of creating inhalable aerosol particles in the immediate vicinity of an infected person. (e.g.)…The act of vomiting produces an aerosol and has been implicated in airborne transmission of gastrointestinal viruses. Regarding diarrhea, even when contained by toilets, toilet flushing emits a pathogen-laden aerosol that disperses in the air.

…..These rates indicate that 99% loss in aerosol infectivity would occur in 93, 104, and 162 minutes, respectively. [DS: I feel comforted, do you feel comforted?]

…In still air, 3-mcm particles can take up to an hour to settle. With air currents, these and smaller particles can be transported considerable distances before they are deposited on a surface…. There is also some experimental evidence that Ebola and other filoviruses can be transmitted by the aerosol route.

Zaire Ebola viruses have also been transmitted in the absence of direct contact among pigs25 and from pigs to non-human primates,26 which experienced lung involvement [sweet term] in infection. Persons with no known direct contact with Ebola virus disease patients or their bodily fluids have become infected.12

[sum: Direct transmission is direct]…However, the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems are not complete barriers to Ebola virus. Experimental studies have demonstrated that it is possible to infect non-human primates and other mammals with filovirus aerosols. …Altogether, these epidemiologic and experimental data offer enough evidence to suggest that Ebola and other filoviruses may be opportunistic with respect to aerosol transmission.28 That is, other routes of entry may be more important and probable, but, given the right conditions, it is possible that transmission could also occur via aerosols.

As for public protection:

Facemasks, however, do not offer protection against inhalation of small infectious aerosols, because they lack adequate filters and do not fit tightly against the face.1 Therefore, a higher level of protection is necessary.

Why not disinfect, you ask?

For a risk group 4 organism, any activity that has the potential for aerosolizing liquid body fluids, such as medical or disinfection procedures, should be avoided, if possible. Our risk assessment indicates that a PAPR with a full facepiece (APF = 50) or a hood or helmet (APF = 25) would be a better choice for patient care during epidemic conditions.

They’re beginning to treat it like a risk group 4 (the highest).

Wearing this type of respirator minimizes the need for other types of PPE, such as head coverings and goggles.

But hey, The Guardian said not to worry about it.
