Herpetic : Herpetic outbreaks are often sporatic but can be spurred on by stress. Any surgery can be both emotionally and physically stressful. I suggest that you contact your plastic surgeon and see if they feels a course of antivirals pre and post operatively might minimize your risk of an acute outbreak. There is no need to make you more miserable than you need to after a tummy tuck. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Yes!: Specifically, type 2 diabetes. Anywhere in the world where a "western diet" (high in carbohydrates and fat) has been introduced, rates of type 2 diabetes and obesity are increasing significantly. This even occurs in some populations where type 2 diabetes was never heard of before this type of diet came to town! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Varies by diseases: It varies among illnesses and is hard to predict in individual people. A general rough estimate is that a person is contagious for seven days after the symptoms appear or at least one day after all symptoms are gone, whichever is longer. ...Read more
Either is correct: Either definition is likely correct. An epidemic occurs when the incidence rate (i.e. New cases in a given human population, during a given period) of a certain disease substantially exceeds what is "expected, " based on recent experience.

Do you think ebola might have already mutated into airborne given how bad the epidemic is? If not, how likely will it become airborne soon?
Unlikely: Airborn transmission is a way for viruses to spread without direct contact. These are the strategy of viruses that attack the throat and lungs. The irritation sets up coughing and sneezing which spreads the virus. Ebola spreads by direct contact and does not cause coughing. So its very unlikely that it will evolve into something that behaves this way. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Epidemic/ Pandemic: An epidemic occurs when there are new cases of an infectious disease in a population over a period of time with greater incident rate than expected. An epidemic can grow into a pandemic when that infectious diseases affects an even larger area/population over a certain period of time (such as multiple continents or worldwide). There is currently an Ebola Zaire epidemic in West Africa. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
New sub-subtype: Generally, a new subtype of virus appears that people have little or no immunity or protection against. Because so many people are vulnerable, the virus spreads easily through sneezing or coughing if an airborne disease, or through intimate contact if a blood-borne disease. A disease that has been absent from a population for some time may also cause an outbreak. ...Read more
Beyond the community: An outbreak is often referred to an infectious agent spreading within a community/small area, but when spread beyond this small community to other areas/cities/states is called and epidemic. When the spread is crossing beyond the country to other continent(s) is called a pandemic as what happened with the h1n1 swine flu in 2009. Have fun learning. Knowledge is power. ...Read more

In a real life epidemic, does it really matter if my facemask is an N95, or any mask is better than none?
N95 is best: Yes, it does matter, most respiratory epidemics are due to viruses, and only an N95 mask is sufficient to filter out viruses. A non N95 mask may prevent some body fluids from splashing onto your face (i.e. saliva or blood) so it does offer a little protection, but it won't prevent you from inhaling an airborne virus if someone happened to sneeze or cough into the air. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
