What do an elementary school teacher, a school principal, and a high school soccer player have in common?
No it's not an academic connection. These three people hail from different regions of the country.
What they have in common is that all have been victims of Ebola.
No the disease is not spreading but the fear regarding the disease is apparently very contagious.
A CNN correspondent, Mel Robbins, has named it fear-bola.
The teacher went to a conference in Dallas 10 miles from the Dallas hospital where Duncan was treated and was told to take a 21 day leave, out of an
abundance of caution.
The principal went to a friend's funeral in Africa, in a country with zero cases of Ebola was also asked to take some time off.
The soccer player, even sadder, he is from Nigeria and so had to endure taunts of Ebola, Ebola, while playing at a game.
This is getting ridiculous but not in the way we've been saying.
