But all the hysteria being discussed is about how it's going to go epidemic in the US. You cannot compare the situation in Africa with that of the U.S. They lack any sort of coordinated epidemiological response, they have extraordinarily short medical supplies of the most basic kind, culturally people are reacting out of superstition and are avoiding medical help being cared for instead by untrained, unprotected family and friends. There is no quarantine. There have been no deaths in the U.S. from ebola and cases present in only a small number of states. Meanwhile, there have been 4 deaths from EV-68, numerous cases of paralysis, and sickness reported in almost all states. In one year there were over 60M cases of H1N1, over 275,000 hospitalizations, and over 13,000 deaths.

My brother-in-law is from South America, so I have no illusions about people from South America. In his family are lighter and darker skin colors, blonde and dark hair. However, the vast majority are lightly tanned to dark tanned looking and the vast majority have dark hair.

In one video a guy pulled off his mask with his gloves that i'm sure he touched an ebola patient with. Another video a guy wearing a suit and gloves goes to push croud away from ebola patients leaving the hospital. Sick people in the wet streets dying while it rains down and people are all barefoot. Talk about STUPID. I heard they were dying at a rate of 200 a day now. Don't these people realize that if they don't leave, they will die. 6 month's from now they will see the dead lying all over in the streets. Now we sent over 700 plus people on top of the 3,000 to combat the disease. These people we sent over there will get sick and then they will ship them back to the U.S.A.
WASHINGTON (WJLA/ABC News) - Two people were hospitalized in isolation units at D.C. area hospitals on Friday with possible cases of Ebola, hospital officials confirmed; one of the cases turned out to be malaria.
One of the patients was being treated at D.C.'s Howard University Hospital, while the other was was admitted at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Montgomery County, Md.
The Howard patient, who had just returned to the U.S. after visiting Nigeria, was listed in stable condition with "symptoms that could be associated with Ebola," a hospital statement said.
The Shady Grove patient had "flu-like symptoms and a travel history that matches criteria for possible Ebola," officials there said in statement. But they added the individual was "showing signs of improvement" over the past 24 hours. Shady Grove Adventist Hospital released a statement Friday night saying its patient had malaria, not Ebola.

The tight classes and dorms in college, the shared bathrooms and locker rooms ... oh man that could travel fast through a school. Here it comes ...
Worse, the preschools and elementary schools. Almost everything they touch goes in their mouths. Not so much the older they get but those younger kids? Time to put them all in a bubble.
Howard University Demographics
Historically black university. Mostly black female American students.
Heavy arts and sciences.

more coming...new one in a georgia jail..just symptoms
They are saying (in less than 12 hours) that he tested negative and they are "certain he does not have ebola."
He claimed to have traveled from Nairobi (Kenya) first then went to Nigeria then to DC then Atlanta. DC again. Not verified yet.
My question is, why can't they test the two in DC this fast?
