I suspect 10s of thousands were infected, needle stick injuries are a common occurrence. Today we luckily have post exposure prophylaxis and this is no longer a huge problem but it certainly took time to ensure procedures around taking blood and testing were done correctly especially in hospitals that werent used to it..

I just heard the exact opposite on NBC Nightly News. They had an 'expert' that said it could not live on surfaces & he said if had been sitting on that plane right next to the nurse his chance of getting it would be zero. That's a bold statement & I, for one, do not believe that is accurate at all.
I will listen to the WHO on this issue and not a word from the CDC or our media.
