I said in an earlier post that the United States has just as many ignorant, stupid, and careless people as any "Hot Zone" country in Africa. We may think we have a better infrastructure, more advanced health care facilities, better communications...but all of that doesn't matter a damn if the people in charge are stupid and careless, or worse, are lying to the public.

Oh.. I did not mean that coughing and sneezing are symptoms. I have actually pointed that fact out to others on here a couple5 of times. But people still cough and sneeze sometimes. Allergies, tickles, irritatants, lots of reasons.
But I think surfaces are more dangerous than they are saying. Or else why would they need hazmat suits to clean up after the infected?

I completely agree. There seems to be a deficit in the W.H.O and other bodies in educating the general population about the infectiousness and seriousness of this outbreak. Then again, how do you inform 1 billion people that if they 'think' they had Ebola they're to forward ring to A&E, the strain on the health service would be enormous - I know it would be here in the UK. Afterall, it is all the blue tape that helps the system flow more controllably.
Even though this would be an ideal strategy to tackle an outbreak becoming an epidemic, how do you stop a virus which is invisible.. AND appearing to be more infectious than first thought. 500 US citizens could carry that virus now and we wouldn't know until in a months time, by then it may have even gone airborne. What do we do, flame the infected areas to recoup the losses?
watch the void guys, and stay safe.

So now we not only have criminally negligent health officials constantly dropping the ball on containment, we have criminally STUPID people disrupting air travel.
That's fantastic. Totally restores my shaken faith in human nature.........

When LDragonfire first broke the picture of the Sheriff being taken in the ambulance he asked "Anything wrong with this picture"?
Yes it looks as if we have a mock evacuation of patient here.
They are doing their damnedest to make everyone who questions this fiasco into paranoid nutcases !!!
Military. a feint intended to draw off attention from the point of main attack.
