9000 people out of 7,000,000,000+?
Most cases in West Africa?
Not the doomsday pandemic that it's hyped up to be.
Let's look at that for a second.
Yea, maybe in your home town 9000 people having ebola would be pretty scary.
But, as a statistic of the population of the planet Earth:
9000 people with ebola equates to: 0.000128571% of the human population.
For comparison, [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGOTnhFlqaw=0.001333333%[/url] of the population of the United States believes that Obama was
born in Kenya. As a rate of percentage, more people believe that our president was born in another country than there are people that have Ebola.
I'm not trying to change the subject, or diminish the leathalness of Ebola. I'm just trying to put into perspective. Yes Ebola is deadly, Yes, One
person has so far died in the United States from Ebola, and a nurse who took care of that patient (out of the how many staff that had contact with
that patient?) has Ebola.
I'm just trying to quell some fears that people have. Some people like to hype this kind of thing, and try and scare people with things like this for
their own sick pleasure (the MSM), and hyping up the dangers of catching Ebola.
Basically, unless you live in West Africa, you have more of a chance of dealing with a birther moron, than you have in catching the Ebola virus.
