NON-Ebola victim dies while exiting plane at London Airport

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news...lapses-3977051

Airport staff tonight told of their fears of an Ebola outbreak after a passenger from Sierra Leone collapsed and died as she got off a plane at Gatwick.

Workers said they were terrified the virus could spread globally through the busy international hub from the West African country which is in the grip of the deadly epidemic.

The woman, said to be 72, became ill on the gangway after she left a Gambia Bird jet with 128 passengers on board. She died in hospital on Saturday.

Ebola has killed 256 people in Sierra Leone. A total of 826 have died in West Africa since the outbreak began in February. Tests were carried out to see if the woman had disease.

The plane was quarantined as *officials desperately tried to trace everyone who had been in contact with the woman.

Airport workers faced an anxious wait to see if the woman had Ebola. One said: “Everyone’s just *petrified.

You folks that keep saying its not going to be a problem need to get your heads out of the sand.

Make sure you read the whole article.

I'll wait and see if this is actually Ebola.

Will you start a live thread and let me know what color the ambulance is? That's all I care about!



I am more worried about what time I have to get up tomorrow for work than I am about Ebola spreading........

I did make it a sensationalist headline banner, now didn't I. My apologies, as I normally don't do that.

None the less, what will it take for people to understand that sealed tubes with people breathing recycled air and coughing all over the place and sharing a common bathroom with questionable sanitation is a recipe for disaster.

But thanks for posting that note! I tend to see the glass half full when it comes to potential pandemics... I am actually rather amazed that the world has held them off this long.

Do you think people that test positive for the AIDS should be locked up and kept away from the public?

Just curious.

From the article:

Quote:

Quote:

Quote:
"The patient was not symptomatic on the plane and therefore there is no risk of Ebola being passed on to either flight crew or other passengers.
So we don't know if it WAS Ebola at all. The woman was 72, easily conceivable that she died of natural causes that can happen when one reaches that age.

I'm paying attention to the Ebola situation, but I'm interested in facts, not sensationalism.

Burn her on the tarmac. Torch the plane and all the occupants. Just to be safe.

Couldn't they just have shot it with one 10mm and accomplished this all at once?

That was far less dramatic than I had hoped for.

BUT, if the ambulance had been in Pittsburgh, then I bet it would have been BLACK and YELLOW.

True, but that is something people do to themselves.

HIV is something you do to the innocent. But it makes people uncomfortable to make hard decisions.

Seriously, this article became a news story? Do people really know what Ebola infection looks like? It looks like several different infections in its infancy.

"The patient’s symptoms suggest that Ebola is very unlikely but as a precaution this is one of the tests being undertaken."

"The patient was not symptomatic on the plane and therefore there is no risk of Ebola being passed on to either flight crew or other passengers.
