The ebola virus is in U S, now what? : Update2

 Ebola is in the news much as some epidemiologists think it has the potential to become pandemic. And it is in the U S since patients with it have been admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA, and in Texas and in Nebraska. Remember it is a contagious disease and is carried through blood and body secretions of infected persons. I am posting some links to very well-written articles on this subject and also on the subject of sepsis which is bacteria in the bloodstream throughout the body. Ebola is a virus but some of the same emergency measures are used in any critical situation so I am including the American Journal of Nursing guidelines for  sepsis. 

Very good audio -visual of ebola infection:;

And on the subject of what the U S containment of ebola might involve [quarantine] :

 NY Times op-ed suggesting screening at all airports in US for signs/symptoms of ebola:

 Quote: "Ebola has killed more than 3,400 people in West Africa, with more than 7,400 suspected, probable and confirmed cases." And: "The virus is transmitted through close and direct physical contact with infected bodily fluids, the most infectious being blood, faeces and vomit. The incubation period from time of infection to symptoms is two to 21 days."  From CNN article that says ebola has been transmitted to Spain and that EU is holding conference to plan a strategy located at

You may find more of the blogs I own and write on the prolife cause at; and remember each is unique with different content:

You may find more of the blogs I own and write and post art I create too :

Also, I, Gloria Poole, have a Registered Nurse license in Missouri, and I also draw, sketch, paint, tweet, blog on many topics including health care and public health.  Doing what I can do to help improve the worlds' public health is a "labor of love" --it is not something I get paid to do. 

Because I have had an on-going [for nearly 10 years] battle to try to hold onto my NAME and my identity on the web, I am also posting a lengthy Copyright notice to make it clear who owns this blog and who owns the copyright to my words and art [me] and who writes this blog.

6 Oct  2014: Copyright notice: this blog and all content on it is created by me and owned by me  Gloria Poole residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia, and it is covered by U S copyright law. I, Gloria Poole, own all rights to this blog and to all content on it, all words, all photos, and all art represented by photos that I photographed. I have the actual, tangible art I created and photographed.  This blog and or its individual posts may not be transferred to anyone anywhere,nor have domains forwarded to it that do not belong to me, nor be saved to disk, nor downloaded, nor printed at remote,  nor copied, nor photo-copied [screen-captured] , nor in any way with any method be reproduced. I, Gloria Poole, own all rights to all words, art and photos I create  with any method of technique or medium on any surface anywhere any location any reason or no reason, whether or not I photograph it on any camera, phone, etc, and whether or not I publicly display it anywhere. I have never signed a blanket waiver of my copyrights to art I have created and do not have an artist's rep [agent], nor literary agent to represent me, and never did.  I drew,  painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on any blog of mine.

For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed"  in year 2005 in  Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist.  In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine.  I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created  in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at, and also on my Picasa albums at

 I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer for words that WORK, and Tapestry of LIFE, photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ].  That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .

Updated by me Gloria Poole, RN, artist  of Missouri on 7 Oct 2014 at 6:58 am to add four more links to articles in the news that might be helpful to countries abroad [and of course the U S too] in diagnosing, treating and preventing the spread of ebola. My thanks to all news agencies for their help. Update by me Gloria on 13 oct 2014 to add the AP and Washington Post articles to add to the database of information available to world on topic of ebola.
