Text As many as 6,000 passengers travel from Nigeria to the U.S. each week, according to the study.

IMHO every one that has traveled to a hot zone or anywhere near should be checked upon entrance to the US.

well it was a news article from at least 11 days ago, so not much time left for it to be correct or incorrect.

From the article:

Ira Longini, a professor of biostatistics at the University of Florida, was part of a team of researchers that used a mathematical model to generate projections of the epidemic spread of Ebola worldwide. The scientists took into consideration daily airline passenger travel worldwide, information about the disease’s spread rate, and other factors.

“As the Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to spread, isolated cases will likely make their way to the United States,” Longini told Newsmax Health. “Our latest estimates show there is a nearly 20 percent chance that this will occur within two weeks.”

Longini goes on to state that it's "almost inevitable" it will hit the US in the long run.

I also predict that it's almost inevitable it will reach the US. Then again, I didn't generate a mathematical model so what do I know.

Also, here's a cleaner link to the article.

a reply to: ATF1886Hey. I can't create my own thread yet. So I'm posting here.
I think ebola might have spread to Canada.

It's a small isolated native reserve.

The kids there are all getting these really ebola looking rashes.

Also, there was a diamond mine near it with a company that does a lot of work in Africa so maybe one of their employees brought it over?

Anyway, I think it's worth looking into.

Is it that time again?



Twenty percent chance, eh? Forgive me if I'm not going to worry overmuch about it.
