#Ebola cousin = #Marburg / MERS near Galveston suspect

http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=BH-20141017-45671-USA “A man in Texas is being tested and monitored for an outbreak virus found overseas, but it’s not Ebola. Health officials at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center in Webster, TX say they are treating a patient with a suspected case of the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). According to Kurt Koopmann, public information officer for the Galveston County Health District, the patient, a man in his 70s, had recently traveled to the Arabian Peninsula. Currently laboratory analysis on the patients’s samples is pending. Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is viral respiratory illness first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012. It is caused by a coronavirus called MERS-CoV. Most people who have been confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection developed severe acute respiratory illness. They had fever, cough, and shortness of breath. About 30% of people confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection have died. So far, all the cases have been linked to countries in and near the Arabian Peninsula. To date, there has been two imported MERS cases in the US, one in Indiana and one in Florida. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, Since April 2012 and as of 9 October 2014, 892 cases of MERS-CoV have been reported by local health authorities worldwide, including 356 deaths.”

He had started feeling unwell about 10 days earlier, and his condition kept deteriorating. He complained of headache, abdominal pain, vomiting blood and diarrhea. Samples were taken and tested at the Uganda Virus Research Institute, and results confirmed the man had a marburgvirus. Doctors said his brother, one of the people he came into contact with, has developed similar symptoms and has been quarantined in a group of 80 others, 60 of whom are health workers.”

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
