How long till it spreads to your location Des? We know how good hospitals have been at keeping stuff from spreading lately. If you want an illness, just schedule a test at your hospital, they will provide you with all sorts of good antibiotic resistant types. Now they are saying all sorts of diseases can be spread through your hairdresser. I suppose that is true, just because we don't think of it doesn't mean it isn't happening.

So much fear that is issued forth by news media corporations, could be combated with simple English Comprehension training. It is the basic, the most fundamental element of reading, the ability to not just parrot what is being read or heard, but the ability to comprehend its meaning.
Glad to see that you did not catch the fear bug on this one crazyewok!

I can look out my windows and see the roofs of the CDC through the Georgia pines ... (well, actually, they're Live Oaks and Hickories here but, you know ...).
The CDC has things in refrigerated vials over there, under those rooftops, that make Ebola look like Chicken Pox ... if I were worried about things like that plastered on the news, I'd be hiding in a basement somewhere.
I'd be more worried about the infected individuals we don't hear about on the news, who aren't being treated to the massive protection/containment afforded to this poor person.
That'll be where "the fun" starts.

In the wake of the anthrax mishap, federal health officials launched a probe that uncovered other incidents, including one in which CDC scientists contaminated samples of low-pathogenic bird flu viruses with a highly pathogenic strain and in March shipped them to a Department of Agriculture lab, where the viruses killed all the chickens exposed to them.

Can't get a link now but, for all of you making light, etc. Not two weeks ago there was a big CDC scandal where protocols were NOT followed and extremely contagious pathogens had a breach of security and safety. If anyone finds the link, please post it...even the director of the CDC was not notified properly by his own staff about the breach.
More than 80 people may have been exposed to airborne anthrax bacteria in an embarrassing mishap at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and the numbers may go even higher, officials said Friday.
“Right now we have an excess of 80 individuals,” CDC deputy director Dr. Ileana Arias told NBC News. “We expect that number may even grow … because we're trying to make that available to as many people as possible in order to make sure there are no adverse consequences to health of any of our employees as a result of what happened.” www.nbcnews.com...
