Ebola Relapse For Doctor Rick Sacra?

by James Denison / November 2, 2014 9:52 PM PST


The doctor who had Ebola is back in the hospital following his "recovery" and dismissal a couple weeks ago. Not known yet if he's had a relapse of Ebola. If so, this could be very bad not just for him, but all those who have thought he was cured and spent time near or with him.

He gave this interview on FOX news along with the recalcitrant Maine nurse on Oct 29. A day later he was admitted into a Massachusetts hospital, and a report was issued, but then pulled (covered up?)
Notice the information in the link. I also have a google screen capture of the link, but there's no cached page with it.

Here are two other links that have since been pulled.



why the coverup????

Here's a cropped page capture of that googled links.

not known yet.....no chance anyone will wait UNTIL they find out for sure is there?

I know, you're just throwing it out there and standing back to see what sticks.

I do think anyone who may be declared Ebola free, then released, then relapses with Ebola, would be a very scary prospect, because it would indicate the disease could be more like HIV than we'd like, hiding till it can flare up again, and not able to depend on current means to measure it in a person's blood. I still remember the years of no HIV test that was certain.

issues. But I do note that the "21 days" is a conservative best guess. (E.g. perhaps no one is known to go past 14 days, so they add a week to be sure.)
Trouble is, human biology is not bridge building- tables of exact stress and strain, etc. And the behavior of the virus is not fully known.

with respiratory infections do a lot of coughing up of phlegm and spittle.....much like some stages of Ebola.........whether it was a leap by whoever reported that he was 'reinfected' or not, it still comes down to a scary situation since he had already been infected, don't you think?

Agreed. Rule: Consider the other guy

before acting. The woman in Maine didn't. Hope she survives. (The scare she gave.)

A fake news site
by James Denison / November 5, 2014 5:18 AM PST

reported that she was hospitalized with Ebola symptoms, the "news" went viral and all Fort Kent was getting worked up over it, calling the Sheriff's office, where he was assuring them it was a "spoof" site. She let herself in for that by being obstinate though, and no doubt feelings toward her haven't improved with that bit of scary "news".

Not unlike the "fake news site" you referred to

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
