Here is a quote from www.infoplease.com about the spread of Ebola:
The viruses that cause Ebola and Marburg are similar, infecting both monkeys and people. The outbreaks of these diseases are often self-contained, however, because they kill their hosts so quickly that they rapidly run out of people to infect.
THAT should be a real comfort to people who suddenly realize they have been in contact/in the vicinity with someone infected!
Ed. Note: Marburg, like Ebola, is viral disease that manifests by sudden onset, fever, headache, generalized myalgia, backache, conjunctivitis, and severe prostration, soon followed by various hemorrhagic symptoms, which result in focal inflammatory reaction and necrosis (death of body tissue). The CDC said there are several ways Ebola can spread to other people: Touching the blood or body fluids of a person who is sick with or has died from Ebola, including but not limited to urine, saliva, feces, vomit and semen.
An airline flight… closed compartment, recirculated air, with someone infected… he might sneeze or cough... or maybe he uses the bathroom…. Shake, shake…. Flush…. You follow him into the head…. Flush…. CONTACT
A dinner out… same scenario… someone infected in the restaurant …. He uses the bathroom…. Shake, shake…. Flush…. You follow him into the head…. Flush…. CONTACT… don’t touch your face before washing your hands
On a different note, Obama is sending 4000 military to Africa to build temporary hospitals… for Ebola patients. HELLO! Soldiers are trained to kill enemies THEY CAN SEE! Not a virus they can’t see! Exposure in numerous ways…. They come home…. Kiss wives, children…. CONTACT
Thomas Frieden, Director of the CDC, says Ebola is NOT spread by casual contact… on the one hand…. On the other hand, he tells anyone travelling to Africa…. ‘AVOID PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION’…. Can you say DICHOTOMY? This man is an idiot! Confidence is low!
An argument for cancelling all flights to and from nations with Ebola outbreak….. On the one hand, how MEAN to not allow them to come here in hopes for a cure……….. On the other hand, liberals scream that ‘we can’t fight Ebola THERE…. How can we get aid workers there? Who would GO there if they can’t be assured of coming home?’
ANYONE EVER HEAR OF CHARTERED FLIGHTS‼‼‼! We managed to bring an infected doctor and nurse home on private planes!
COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS SHOULD BE BANNED TO AND FROM COUNTRIES WITH EBOLA OUTBREAKS!
The United States has had one DEATH from Ebola (Duncan)…. And now we have a nurse with the disease…. a nurse TRAINED TO DEAL WITH EBOLA‼‼ Who had contact WITH Duncan… I hope she didn’t go home and kiss her husband goodnight… or God forbid, HER CHILDREN‼‼
I’m sorry to say this… but it’s a GOOD thing that Duncan died…. if he had survived, just IMAGINE the people from Africa…. with $$$$ and Ebola…. how many would be headed our way‼‼ Who could BLAME them? Not me! They want to survive!
PRESIDENT OBAMA…. WHY ARE YOU SENDING 4000 MILITARY TROOPS TO AFRICA TO FIGHT EBOLA! YOU ARE SUCH A PIECE OF SHIT AND YOUR HATRED FOR THE MILITARY IS BEYOND OBVIOUS! SEND THEM TO FIGHT ISIS, YOU PUSILLANIMOUS COMMUNITY ORGANIZER!‼!
Let the countries SURROUNDING those African countries with the Ebola outbreak (Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea) send in help! LET THE EU SEND HEALTH CARE WORKERS!
CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER, CANCEL AIRLINE FLIGHTS TO AND FROM THESE AFRICAN COUNTRIES – AND STOP THIS OUTBREAK OF EBOLA BEFORE IT CONSUMES THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
Remember…… The outbreak of this disease is often self-contained because IT KILLS its HOST SO QUICKLY THAT IT RUNS OUT OF PEOPLE TO INFECT!
