Sun Unleashes Powerful Solar Flares, Disrupting Radio Communications


The sun is at it again, unleashing a series of solar flares including one that caused brief disruptions in communication systems.

NASA said its space-based Solar Dynamics Observatory observed an X-class solar flare that peaked at 1:01 a.m. EDT on Oct. 19. Another X-class flare came at 10:28 a.m. EDT today, Oct. 22, according to the National Weather Service's Space Weather Prediction Center.

Official WHO Ebola toll near 5,000 with true number nearer 15,000

(Reuters) - At least 4,877 people have died in the world's worst recorded outbreak of Ebola, and at least 9,936 cases of the disease had been recorded as of Oct. 19, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday, but the true toll may be three times as much.

The WHO has said real numbers of cases are believed to be much higher than reported: by a factor of 1.5 in Guinea, 2 in Sierra Leone and 2.5 in Liberia, while the death rate is thought to be about 70 percent of all cases. That would suggest a toll of almost 15,000.

I hope those #'s are wrong.

WASHINGTON -- Ron Klain steps up to his new role as Ebola czar Wednesday morning. Here's a glimpse at what his role as the President's Ebola czar will and won't entail, according to sources inside and outside the White House.

Don't expect to see Klain briefing the public on the contours of the Ebola response. That will be left to Tom Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Allergy and Infectious Disease Director Anthony Fauci and relevant cabinet officials, as required.

I hope he does not open his mouth.

Nurse Who Contracted Ebola Virus-Free, Mom Says


Nurse Amber Vinson's Blood Tests Negative for Ebola

A Dallas nurse who is being treated for the deadly Ebola virus got some good news Wednesday, when blood tests returned negative for the virus that has killed more than 4,800 people worldwide in seven months.

The test results don’t mean that Amber Vinson, 29, is leaving Emory University Hospital in Atlanta anytime soon, or that she is Ebola-free, a source with knowledge of her case told NBC News. But it does mean Vinson will be moved to a lower-risk section of the isolation unit.

Nurse Who Contracted Ebola Virus-Free, Mom Says

A Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola from Liberian national Thomas Duncan is virus-free, her mother told ABC News in a statement.

Amber Vinson became the second person to contract Ebola in the United States after she treated Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Duncan died of the virus on Oct. 8, and Vinson's fellow nurse, Nina Pham, 26, tested positive for Ebola on Oct. 11.

Amber Vinson’s family says she is Ebola-free, but Emory and CDC officials have yet to confirm statement

This information is on CDC, Website.


Recovery from Ebola depends on good supportive clinical care and the patient’s immune response. People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years.

Ebola serum for Africa patients within weeks, says WHO

Serum made from the blood of recovered Ebola patients could be available within weeks in Liberia, one of the countries worst hit by the virus, says the World Health Organization.

Speaking in Geneva, Dr Marie Paule Kieny said work was also advancing quickly to get drugs and a vaccine ready for January 2015.

The Ebola outbreak has already killed more than 4,500 people.

Most of the deaths have been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The partnership which is moving the quickest will be in Liberia where we hope that in the coming weeks there will be facilities set up to collect the blood, treat the blood and be able to process it for use”

Dr Marie Paule Kieny WHO assistant director general for health system and innovation

Dr Kieny, WHO assistant director general for health system and innovation, said: "There are partnerships which are starting to be put in place to have capacity in the three countries to safely extract plasma and make preparation that can be used for the treatment of infective patients.
