Yep,according to "reliable sources" and a lot of ATS members,you have to positively soak in the Ebola blood/faeces/vomit of victims to have even the remotest chance of gettiing the disease.But hey,that means if it Does become a pandemic,at least we will have Boatloads of volunteers to tend to the sick-without the expense of protective gear too.The good ol' human touch-bare hands of volunteers comfortingly holding the bare hands of victims.Whyever not? After all,it's almost impossible to catch ebola unless you lick their wounds and french kiss them for hours on end.Silly ol' fearmongering cowering me will pass though,but at least there will be hordes of volunteers not as uninformed and stupid as me.sa reply to: jaynkeel

Sorry, people with PhD's disagree with you.
We have ONE confirmed case, and no one that has been associated with him has came down with it, what does that tell you?
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today signed an order that gives the Commissioner of the Department of Public Health (DPH) the ability to effectively quarantine an individual or a group of individuals who may have been exposed to or infected with the Ebola virus.
The order is not being executed because a specific case has been identified, but rather as a precautionary and preparatory measure in the event that the state has either a confirmed infection or has confirmed that someone at risk of developing the infection is residing in the state.
“We are taking this action today to ensure that we are prepared, in advance, to deal with any identified cases in which someone has been exposed to the virus or, worst case, infected,” said Governor Malloy. “Our state’s hospitals have been preparing for it, and public health officials from the state are working around the clock to monitor the situation. Right now, we have no reason to think that anyone in the state is infected or at risk of infection. But it is essential to be prepared and we need to have the authorities in place that will allow us to move quickly to protect public health, if and when that becomes necessary. Signing this order will allow us to do that.”

from what I have heard, it is a weaponized strain, and it is air born. It might get real ugly people.

Governor Dannel Malloy has declared Connecticut to be in a state of public health emergency, enabling the indefinite suspension of certain civil rights.
I smell an election suspension coming real soon.
Somebody is getting desperate.
