Will Ebola spread in the U.S.?
« on: October 01, 2014, 07:25:36 AM »
Well, by now everyone must know that as of yesterday, a man in Dallas has tested positive for Ebola. Is this something to panic about, or is Ebola completely overhyped?

If it is do you have something to do about it?

There is a possible second case now: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/10/01/texas-ebola-patient/16525649/

Not sure why everyone seems so calm about this...

Because the prez said a few weeks ago that we have nothing to worry about, it won't be a problem here in the US.

You mean... much like we don't have to worry about ISIS being a threat? Or... keeping your health insurance and doctor if you like it?

Uh oh. A woman who was wearing full hazmat gear while treating the Ebola patient has now contracted the disease.

This is very scary news, folks.

The CDC can't figure out why this woman caught it. The scariest part about this is that medical professionals will no longer want to treat infected patients for fear of contracting the disease.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I don't know about you, but until we know if this is contained or not, I wouldn't get on any plane unless absolutely necessary.

Friend of mine just got off a flight, said people were wearing masks. So much for the worthless CDC.
