The possible Ebola patient in New York has tested negative for the virus so that incident will be relegated to the journalistic trash heap of history. But what if Mr. Silverman had been infected with Ebola?

Consider the following from the report in the NY Daily News:

  1. “We had just had a family dinner the night before, and everyone was hugging and kissing. Now we were all very worried.”
  2. Two days before he was riding his bike 40 miles around New York
  3. As Silverman and his mother got into a livery car close to midnight, he warned his mother: “Don’t mention the ‘E-word’ in the cab, or else we’re never going to make it up there.”

So IF Mr. Siverman had been infected, most of his family and friends would have contracted this airborne virus (regardless of the CDC propaganda). Along with a portion of New York along his 40 miles bicycle ride and a cab driver. What is the penalty for getting into a cab and not disclosing that you may have an infectious disease? Reckless endangerment? Mr. Silverman did knowingly put the cab driver's life in danger as shown by his warning to his mother not to say the E-word.

Did the hospital track down the cab driver and all of his passengers after transporting Mr. Silverman to the hospital and Ebola testing starting? Did the government quarantine his house, friends or family?

So the simple question is: what if Mr. Silverman had had Ebola? The answer is New York would not have been saved.

Actually WE the United States, need not panic.This is not like Africa where

they have very few medical personell that can detect this. This hit them like

a shot out of the dark. What scares me more then anything is the comment

about a crimial drug manufacture introducing a drug to the market place with

zero or no testing Lets hear more about that!

@ Frank

There is some speculation that Ebola Zaire is also airborne but there is no way to prove it at this time. The current outbreak is less lethal (50%) than previously seen so there is some speculation that is is a different strain. At the current levels of infection, mutations are guaranteed. Less lethal mutations will be predisposed to have a better chance of survival.

Whatever is the case, the people infected by sharing an airflight with Patrick Sawyer to Lagos, Nigeria were infected through an airborne contagion.

David D.,

     So what you are saying is that there could be a new strain of the virus that can be airborne?  That was the premise in the movie "Outbreak."  The virus mutated into one that could be transmitted through the air.

The media never did report what Mr. Silverman did have.

Comment by Mindy on August 11, 2014 at 1:12pm

He might not have ebola, but that does not rule out "bas congo" which the first reported cases were in 2009. The victims present with symptoms similar to that of ebola, but test negative for ebola. Wonder if they tested for bas congo?

True, the CDC has the best equipment available to protect us from this potential horror. The problem is --- They must follow protocol. Remember --- They ignored the rules and contaminated several people just a mere three or four weeks ago because of their carelessness. That my friend was not caused by the equipment. --- That was caused by the employees. One more thought. --- I prayed that the plane and ambulance would have safe trips in transporting these poor people to the CDC's hospital facilities. My prayers were answered and now I'm praying for the victims recovery.

Bill Slater,

Patrick Sawyer died from Ebola in Lagos, Nigeria on the way back to the United States. You are confusing Sawyer with Silverman.

Eugene Wakefield,

Do some more research on Patrick Sawyer. Then come back and explain your logic how it is communicable on through bodily fluids.

Comment by Eugene Wakefield on August 11, 2014 at 10:10am
The Ebola virus is not an airborne illness. It's communicable through bodily fluids.
Comment by Bill Slater on August 11, 2014 at 9:55am

But, he tested negative, according to this post, so it would appear the 8 passengers contracted ebola from another source.  Another strain?  Certainly possible.  With modern transportation, the "what if" is a realistic scenario.  It's when the media and their "if it bleeds it leads" mentality exaggerate or distort the issue that governments jump to inappropriate and possibly ineffective measures.  Don't mean to minimize the seriousness.  People I knew and worked with are living at serious risk in Liberia and I am deeply concerned about them (most are healthcare workers).
