Experts say transmission of Ebola virus by air possible

Source:Vangaurd

By SOLA OGUNDIPE

THE Ebola Virus is essentially transmitted from human-to-human through direct contact with infected patients, or through contact with body fluids of a victim. However, scientists are not ruling out the possibility of transmission by air through aerosolised particles.

Previously, Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the Ebola virus (the Zaire Ebola) could be transmitted by air between species. Although no human over-ther-air transmission of the lethal viral disorder has been recorded, but the Patrick Sawyer incidence in Lagos, Nigeria, has reopened worries over the implications of the possibility of its transmission in an enclosed environment such as an aircraft cabin.

Transmissible from pigs to monkeys by air Studies show that the Ebola virus is transmissible to monkeys from infected pigs without them coming into direct contact. The Ebola virus survives for days outside infected hosts and can “ride” on aerosolised droplets to spread to potential victims.

In a demonstration of the infectious dose of the Ebola virus, the Public Health Agency of Canada says 1 – 10 aerosolised organisms are sufficient to cause infection in humans.

In demonstrating the transmission from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them, the scientists housed the pigs carrying the virus in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the macaques (monkeys) were showing clinical signs typical of ebola and were euthanised.

RFID chips to be used on Chattooga County buses to track students

No child left behind — on the school bus.

That’s part of the sales pitch made by StudentConnect Inc., a Marietta, Ga.-based start-up company that lets school districts and parents track students using ID cards that contain radio frequency identification device (RFID) chips.

The Chattooga County School District recently signed a five-year contract to use StudentConnect, said Kayode “Kay” Aladesuyi, chairman and CEO of East Coast Diversified Corp., the holding company that owns StudentConnect.

Advocates hail the electronic tracking devices as a way to help assure student safety. But the ability to track individual children has raised privacy concerns among some parents and the specter of the biblical “mark of the beast” in at least one community.

Chattooga County says it is going to use the tracking system only on school buses, and parents can decide whether their children will participate.

Using the RFID badges, school officials and parents will know when and where students get on and off the bus — and whether students actually set foot in school. The badges will notify the bus driver if a student gets on the wrong bus or fails to get off because he or she has fallen asleep. Parents using the system can see when the school bus is about to arrive so they can pick up their kids
