Anyone that could draw blood could take a pint or two put it on ice and give a small amount to 20 to 30 people just before they get on a plane.
A week or two down the line they could be spread around the world when they became infectious to everyone else.
Ebola is just as infectious as HIV so just a needle stick could spread it.
Simply spending a day drinking lots of water and walking through all the stores fingering everything would be enough.
I find it interesting people say this stuff because "they" could be reading it and never would have thought of it till someonne here gave them the idea.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Some tags are powered by and read at short ranges (a few meters) via magnetic fields (electromagnetic induction). Others use a local power source such as a battery, or else have no battery but collect energy from the interrogating EM field, and then act as a passive transponder to emit microwaves or UHF radio waves (i.e., electromagnetic radiation at high frequencies). Battery powered tags may operate at hundreds of meters. Unlike a barcode, the tag does not necessarily need to be within line of sight of the reader, and may be embedded in the tracked object.
