He recently traveled to Liberia... Why? Who knows?! Why would anyone travel there right now blows my mind. But the bigger question is why are travel restrictions not already in place?!

Your response concerns me. Not because I completely disagree. Certainly it is foolhardy and probably avoidable to travel to such a place, but that can be taken to an extreme by the government. How soon till travel restrictions aren't only implemented but how long till it's nearly impossible to leave the country? I could see that as a possibility. One that frightens me to the core.

I don't like being "trapped".

Strategically positioned amid a huge population & transportation hub in a huge state currently inundated with a torrent of illegal immigrants. Welcome "Captain Tripps". "Baby can you dig your man".--S.K.

I'm interested in the where and how of it being contracted, also.

I am quite interested too. I also heard that the US owns the patent on the ebola virus. Apparently they already own the cure as well. As proven by the miraculous cures of the 3 or 4 Dr.s/aid workers that were infected a few months ago. I guarantee there is something more sinister going on here...

Actually, I think you are wrong. Western clinicians and medical teams have been working in Africa since this most recent Ebola outbreak started. In the thick of it. Or don't the facts count?

Ok, I'll say it. We're doomed. And I am not even a germophobe. I personally don't see this going well for any country in the future.

Not so miraculous... The current survival rate of this outbreak is reported to be between 40-60%. So, the drugs they were given may be worthless.

And THEY have said they were not enough since December of last year. That is a fact.

I don't think that they were "cured". They simply survived. With supportive care Ebola is survivable. There are survivors in Africa... Is the US randomly dosing out their secret vaccine in Africa? Of course not. People are simply being treated. The survival rate varies from 75% to 10%. The quicker and more thorough the support during infection, the more likely the person will survive. Left in the woods, you'll almost definitely die. In a well equipped and staffed hospital in a developed country? You'll probably survive, if you're treated quickly enough.

I somehow highly doubt that. These people were up and socializing with friends, family, the general public all within the span of 12 days. I would call that miraculous.

Do you have any sources for that?

There is a big difference in restricting travel to and from areas of a known near pandemic population culling infectious disease and the locking down of America. That is a big leap to make with many variables that would have to be ignored for it to occur. I know many people who would resist actions as far as those. We as the public have the right and the duty to prevent such long reaching actions by our government.

Since I first heard of Ebola as a kid, it scared the tar out of me...more so than any other disease.

Now it's here. My germaphobe senses are wild at the moment.

All of these diseases going around....

Its getting biblical.


I'll be having a drink to you tonight, Ebola.

We're screwed.

Actually, I believe they were given an "experimental" drug, and it worked in all 3 or 4 of the cases. That is not 60 % by any means.

They cured Ebola infected patients in Atlanta with an "experimental" drug treatment. Cured. They have a vaccine.

They can put this fire out, only question is... How long will they let it burn?

imo

Just in case, remember, in the unlikely event of an emergency, don't panic, remain calm, walk, don't run to the nearest emergency exit, and be assured, help is on the way.

I want sources. I'm not saying you're wrong or lying. I just haven't heard about this and want to look into it. It's no good to anybody to take people's words for things.

Edit: Whew. Thank god he wasn't contagious while at DFW. This could have been a lot worse.
