    Makes me wonder if air borne transmission is not already taking place given that supposedly fully covered health care professionals are succumbing to the disease. They may be fully protected from physical contact but they are not breathing filtered air.

    Yeah I don't know about the 250,000 estimate either but doubling every week is not exponential growth. And in a population, be it fruit flies in a lab, or humans in Africa, exponential growth would be more like expanding at the square during each measured time period. Think of the area of a circle with a radius of 1. Double the radius and the area quadruples. Double it again and now the area is 16x the original. Gets a little scary when you think about it that way.

    If the patient survives, we will be informed which drug was used. If he does not survive, the drug used will not be released. Either way, this is a good scenario for holding onto the stock.

    I've been watching GSAT for a long time. Considered getting in at 2.75 but didn't pull the trigger. It's flattened out in the $4 range. Waiting for the next dip.

    There is a great article in the New York Times. It appears that an unknown percentage of the African population has a natural immunity to Ebola. Maybe because they consumed bat saliva infected fruit in small quantities or ate unfully cooked bats themselves. Again in small quantities. It evidently gave their immune systems a jump start in dealing with the infection. However there are also Africans that have been found with natural immunity to Ebola. Unknown percentage. It was suggested that those with immunity be trained as the care givers and be the ones to take care of the dead.

    Also a quote from Robert F. Garry Jr., a Tulane University expert in hemorrhagic fevers who works in Sierra Leon: “There’s no more ZMapp out there. It’s time for creative solutions.”

    What TKMR Needs To Do

    The Doctors Without Borders website has lots of great information on the situation. Click on the Ebola tab to get there. Also note that DWB seems to have little faith in the ability of WHO and/or the African countries to setup the infrastructure to properly handle the situation. It leads me to believe that this problem is going to get much worse. On their website they have an open letter to the WHO that states their position.

    WHO Ebola Conference

    I found the agenda and schedule for the meeting and I confirm that two representatives from TKMR will be at the conference: Dr Ian MacLachlan (he is an executive vice president and the Chief Technical Officer). Also present will be Ms Helia Baradarani (Manager of Medical Countermeasure Business Development - whatever that means). I don't see from the agenda that either of them will be presenting anything. What is your source for this information.

  • Even if the short interest has doubled since the previous 15 day reporting session (8/1 to 8/15) to about 5 million shares shorted, and in light of the fact that the daily average volume has come down to about 5 million shares a day, the days to cover is still in the neighborhood of a single day.

    Bottom line .... don't expect much of a short squeeze. There could be one wild day, or maybe a few very active days, but I don't see the stock price surge going much beyond $25/sh. And it will be another short lived rally.

    If anything, it will be the continuing news stream that continues to pump energy into this stock. And we all know how that works. The crash of Malaysian Airlines flight 370 - old news. Take over of Crimea - old news. Russians rolling into Ukraine - getting older every day. Action against ISIS - that will dominate the news cycle. Unrest/recovery in Ferguson Missouri - it's essentially out of the news.

    The American public and the news media are very short sighted.

    What is it with you people? I would say less then 5% of the posts are literate and only a fraction of those have anything worth saying or offer any significant unbiased analysis. The rest are nonsensical, confused, bizarrely irrational and/or so syntacically challenged it makes me wonder whether anyone that posts on message boards have more then a 3rd grade education.
