Texas Patient Tests Positive for Ebola

Funny! I heard the current mini pandemic of Ebola is a Hoax. Especially when you see the obvious Crisis actors doing their stuff in the CNN reports!

Just to claifiy,this was one of the people that was caring for Duncan AFTER he was put in isolation. From CNN:
" The worker was involved in Duncan's second visit to the hospital, when he was admitted to treatment, and was wearing protective gear."
