Official: Deadly MERS virus could come to St. Louis
A local health official says they expect the MERS virus to come to the St. Louis region. Loading… Post to Facebook. Official: Deadly MERS virus could come to St. Louis A local health official says they expect the MERS virus to come to the St. Louis region.

MERS first appeared in Saudi Arabia in 2012. To date, 536 cases have been confirmed in 12 countries, according to the most recent figures from the World Health Organization. Of those, 145 people have died.
How is it treated?
There is no cure for MERS. But doctors can treat the patient's symptoms.
How is MERS spread? How contagious is it?
Officials say it most often spreads between people who are in close contact. Infected patients, for instance, have spread the virus to health care workers. The virus does not appear to spread easily among people in public settings, such as a shopping mall.
CDC Director Tom Frieden says,“The risk to the general public is extremely low.”
Is there a vaccine?
No vaccine is available. The CDC is talking about creating one.
Is anyone more susceptible to the virus?
The virus is more dangerous for people with pre-existing conditions or problems with their immune systems.
What can travelers do?
The CDC is not advising that people change their travel plans due to MERS. But it does suggest that people traveling to countries with MERS watch their health, wash their hands often, and avoid people who are sick.
Adults should help young children thoroughly wash their hands. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is a good substitute if soap and water are not at hand.
I feel Necrotizing Fasciitis is far more scarier. Necrotizing fasciitis progresses rapidly, having greater risk of developing in the immunocompromised due to conditions such as diabetes or cancer. It is a severe disease of sudden onset and is usually treated immediately with surgical debridement and high doses of intravenous antibiotics, with delay in surgical treatment being associated with higher mortality. Many types of bacteria can cause necrotizing fasciitis (e.g., Group A streptococcus (Streptococcus pyogenes), Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridium perfringens, Bacteroides fragilis, Aeromonas hydrophila. The disease is classified as Type I (polymicrobial, due to a number of different organisms) or Type II (monomicrobial, due to a single infecting organism). The majority of cases of necrotizing fasciitis are polymicrobial, with 25-45% of cases being Type II. Such infections are more likely to occur in people with compromised immune systems secondary to chronic disease. This is now being seen more and more. Recently, a dear co-worker of mine became very ill with this (he is not diabetic or immune compromised, in fact he is very healthy and also a medical provider). He was fine on Friday and by Sunday showed up at the ED and coded. Took him back to emergency surgery to remove as much of it as possible. He was in ICU and continued to decline with all of his organs shutting down. We life flighted him to another hospital (ours is small community hospital) and several surgeries later he was on full support, in medically induced coma and on dialysis. He has started to recover (we are not sure how because we all thought he was done) and we are hopeful that he will continue to improve.

Okay then, we got another of Obama's 'cover men' covering for his black azz once again.

To prevent nationwide panic.

Behind every hijab and burka is a bearded Muslim waiting to kill you carrying this crap.

Surgical masks and surgical gloves are the order of the day under this 'feel good' President.

This mofo is gonna get alot of people killed in his sheer ineptness and his faithful sheep shielding and protecting his azz!

Wait and see.

If I was Prez I'd temporarily ban all international travel, as well as kick ALL illegals the fck outta here..........PRONTO!

But no, political correctness tells us we are to take the upcoming killer epidemic to 'not rock the boat'

You wait until this chit becomes full blown, then you can spout the Liberal/Dem party line on how 'safe it is'

What would America fight for?

A nagging doubt is eating away at the world order—and the superpower is largely ignoring it

May 3rd 2014

“WHY is it that everybody is so eager to use military force?” America’s cerebral president betrayed a rare flash of frustration on April 28th when dealing with a question in Asia about his country’s “weakness”. Barack Obama said his administration was making steady, if unspectacular, progress. By blundering into wars, his critics would only harm America.

Mr Obama was channelling the mood of his people, worn out by the blood and treasure squandered in Iraq and Afghanistan. A survey last autumn by the Pew Research Centre suggests that 52% want the United States to “mind its own business internationally”, the highest figure in five decades of polling. But when America’s president speaks of due caution, the world hears reluctance—especially when it comes to the most basic issue for any superpower, its willingness to fight.

For America’s most exposed allies that is now in doubt (see article). For decades, America’s security guarantee used to underpin Japan’s foreign policy; now, on his Asian tour, Mr Obama has had to reassure Japan that it can count on America if China seizes the disputed Senkaku islands (which China calls the Diaoyus). After his tepid backing for intervention in Libya and Mali and his Syrian climbdown, Israel, Saudi Arabia and a string of Gulf emirates wonder whether America will police the Middle East. As Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president, disrupts Ukraine, eastern Europeans fret that they are next.

Each situation is different, but in the echo-chamber of global politics they reinforce each other. The Asians note that in 1994, in exchange for surrendering nuclear weapons, Ukraine received a guarantee from Russia, America and Britain that its borders were safe. The Baltic countries remember the red lines crossed in Syria. Arab princes and Chinese ambassadors count the Republican senators embracing isolationism. Together, these retreats plant a nagging suspicion among friends and foes that on the big day America simply might not turn up.(Cont.)

That's what I said.
As to the President's failings, I think he's doing a fair job. He hasn't led us into the abyss that Bush steered us toward. I'm not saying that he has all the answers, but he's smart enough to ask the right questions and get the right people on board. I'm still alive, well fed, working every day. I don't see the hue and outcry.
This abyss, Doc? That Bush warned about and demorats denied?

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.

It is a 'lung' and respiratory disease.

It can mutate.

There IS NO CURE!

The CDC and YOU, are trying to calm the masses.

Once you got it, you got it for life.

Free market choices are the best choices for the world, as global people can choose east Ukraine over west Ukraine since west Ukraine is the hopeless catastrophe..

West Ukraine has to be done to, to go its own way -- Global people are not that ridiculous and absurd to do along a hopeless catastrophe, with west Ukraine election because west Ukraine failures are due to Nazi sector extremists loaded burden, but now that will be worst destructive when they surface after doing coup, that will be worst failing to go of all time in their hands because they are no doers.

Obviously you know little about how disease is spread. You probably should read up on both of these diseases and yes proper wound care and hand washing is how disease is prevented.
