Fear Mongering ABout Ebola Is Rampant

Sad to see even Washington's blog do this.

Two points--

1) Ebola is only highly contagious at the peak of the disease, when the person is very sick and likely in the hospital or at home. The odds of someone wandering around a city, highly sick with Ebola, is miniscule.

2) Ebola is not a death sentence. We've had several people get infected with Ebola and get treated in the US and recover. A main reason people die from Ebola is dehydration from the vomiting and diarrhea; this is treatable with good medical care.

agreed. but healthcare workers treating patients with a full-blown ebola infection really need to be very careful and consider the possibility of a droplet infection as it is mentioned in washingtons blog and elsewhere. even in africa the disease spreads rather slowly, nigeria and senegal got rid of ebola again.

but any puking black man is featured on the news now, lol.
