I understand you're upset about the U.S. not sending units to help over in Africa, sofi,
You misunderstand. I am extremely concerned that the US "rebutted" the need for specialized biological response teams (saying it wasn't valid). In
doing so, and doing it immediately, the US set a global precedent, ensuring that other wealthy nations would follow suit and echo their
Alright, fair enough, I agree it was a bad and foolish move which sets a bad example for other countries, hopefully they can reverse that choice.
......Answer your questions?
To be honest about everything else though, no it doesn't. I understand how severe and dangerous it is to keep this spreading, and I understand that
the more it spreads, the more chances it has to mutate, but I don't see how we can make a conclusion that it absolutely, 100% will jump to airborne.
It could take years for that to occur (which in no way lessens the seriousness of this epidemic), but I just don't see it spreading like a flu would
anytime soon, and I hope I'm right about that.
As for absolutely 100% going pandemic, again, we can't say for certain. What if next week we see a decline in cases/reports? what if it takes a month
to start slowing down despite wealthier countries not pitching in? Would that make you feel better about the situation or would you question the
accuracy/truth behind the reports?
I still believe that -if- we see a case or two over in another country, it won't spread very far, if at all. This current epidemic could not have
happened in a worse part of the world.
Truly, I'm concerned about the situation over in Africa, and I'm in no way saying that it can't cause global harm, but you said so yourself,
critically analyze the situation and figure out how things can be solved. Claiming that it 100% will go pandemic and airborne, to me, seems like
you're about ready to throw in the towel and take 1 last vacation somewhere before you succumb to this virus.
