why would they be lying??

To avoid panic. May even be good policy. But might not be in your personal best interests to believe it.

Ask your MD instead of getting all worked up about this. This thing is so contagious that none of Duncan's family has contracted it even though they were around him every minute.

If you like conspiracies go figure out who killed Kennedy.   ::)

But meanwhile all Duncan did is help a lady into a cab to go to the hospital. And got it.

I don't believe a word anyone says about how it's contagious or spreads. I don't think they have any good information on it. So they're making stuff up.

  • 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.

The MD's I spoke with say the CDC is doing a sub par job.

+1 it was never properly studied in a US lab. And viruses can change, many airborne viruses start of as only transferable through blood etc. then they become airborne later.

I agree but the bottom line is it isn't spreading as a crazy epidemic...so there doesn't seem to b justification to panic....yet

Where are all the people being hid that have contracted this highly contagious Ebola. Could it be the same place were they are keeping Kennedy and Elvis alive?  :P

Some DDF members can actually think for themselves instead of having to ask someone.  ;)
