Good grief, I hope this isn't the start of another outbreak. I remember watching a program a few years ago about the Ebola epidemic...horrifying stuff.

I'd caught a mention of this in the news, but hadn't really followed it up. Had no idea it was hemorrhagic. That's all we need...easily communicable deadly plague...in todays world or passanger planes...SARS might have been a flash in the pan, but that doesn't diminish the possibility of something bad happening. (In fact, it's one of the most likely "doomsday" senarios IIRC.)

And it's happening in Johannesburg. :shock: Keep safe, Av.

(Yeah, these days virulent diseases worry me more than other kinds of doomsday scenarios. At least I can take some comfort in knowing that our national microbiology lab - located right here in Winnipeg - is right on top of this kind of research.)

Haha, I'm 500 miles from there right now. :D Seems they've identified it as a rodent-born arenavirus, associated with multimammate mice prevalent in east and west Africa. One additional case has been confirmed, and 91 people are being monitored. They think they've got it under control.

Good news I guess. Of course, TB has already mutated into a new strain that's causing a lot of death out here...they call it XDR-TB...extreme drug-resistant.

Yes, absolutely. It is a form of death where your body keeps going for a time... :(

This merely confirms a belief long held by pretty much anyone who has worked in hospitals for any length of time - NEVER go into a hospital in the month of July if you can at all help it! :|
