I would like to see the evidence that ebola is NOT airborne. Where is that?
It's in the bin with the evidence that ebola isn't caused by fairy flatus. You can't prove a negative. There isn't going to ever be evidence that
something's NOT. What you have to do is prove it IS.
TPTB have even said it is transmissible through aerosols, sounds airborne to me.
Airborne and droplet are not the same, despite your thinking to the contrary. Words mean things. In this case, droplet means that the agent can only
be carried in wet little drops that are expelled when you cough, sneeze or the like. These have very limited range and fall to the ground. They're
not wafted about by air currents.
Airborne means that it doesn't require droplets of fluid, and is happy to float about on the breeze as a dust mote. Ebola can't do that.
You can catch an airborne disease many feet away. Droplet, it's limited to about five feet. Ebola can't live in a dry environment like some viruses,
so it can't infect you at a distance like, say, chickenpox or tuberculosis.
