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.

The lab worker on the cruise spent the whole cruise in her cabin.
A passenger who got sick on a plane was asked to spend the entire flight in the restroom.
Students from Nigeria are being denied entry into a US college NEXT YEAR because of Ebola.
Nigeria is as of today declared free of Ebola.
Apparently fear-bola is airborne. It enters the brain through the ears.
The CDC fielded 800 calls about the disease in the first week of October.
Our boards are heavy with threads about it and the general mood seems glum and troubled.

i don like to be that "told you so" kind of guy, because, we can all be wrong at some point, but i have been writing this from the start, that we need to be careful but stop the overreaction, and this whole "end of the world "BS attitude.
and you just watch, how soon enough, we will have a second deluge of posts about how people "created the fear"for a bunch of different reasons. by the same people that fed from that very fear up to not too long ago

The term "Out of an abundance of caution" will be the new battle cry.
It's being used to isolate people who have zero chance of having the disease or spreading it.
The TSA worker who patted Ms. Vinson down when she got on the plane in Dallas has also been asked to take an extended leave. That person wore gloves and had about 15 seconds of contact with Vinson. reply to: IShotMyLastMuse

I have no fear of Ebola.

It's the obvious deception of this fear campaign that scares me.

Huge amounts of money are being dedicated to fight this 'Phandemic'.

Where is it really going?

Twenty one days off? If I was still working that would seem like a dream scenario. It would have been great to catch up on the projects around the house.

Oh wait, I forgot that I am supposed to be fearing this. That is pretty hard to do when you get a vacation from work like that.

S&F! I have been saying this for a while. The fearmongering is STRONG in this epidemic, and the public is buying it hook, line, and sinker. It's VERY apparent on these forums, and methinks you may upset a few a people here with this thread.

A lot of money is made off of fear mongering. I doubt if this practice will ever change.

Ebola is nothing compared to the infection of Fearbola! Its spreads thru internet and media.

Its crazy!

That's only a good thing if it's paid time off. Otherwise it's a chunk of change out of the household coffers.
Three weeks without a paycheck could be the cable bill going unpaid. For some it might even mean a forced weightloss plan. a reply to: rickymouse

Oh I get it. I really do. I'm just saying that it's not a popular opinion to have right now. Half a year later when everyone has moved on to the next thing to fear, they'll look back on it as nothing or see that they were duped. For now though, you gotta put up with the hate for being a critical thinker. As tradition.

I'm pretty sure it's going to aid in west Africa but superstitions and cultural practices are standing in the way. Much of it needs to be spent on educating the citizens of Liberia, Guenea, and Sierra Leon .as well as countries that boarder these regions who may be at risk.

Why is it that there seem to be two major reactions to the crisis in West Africa? The first is that it is the end of the world and it's headed our way, and the other is that it is all some sort of sinister hoax. The disease is real, people. People are dying. Fortunately, it requires direct contact to spread and seems to be petering out naturally. Don't panic, but don't let our officials slide back into complacence.

I read that soon Ebola will be able to travel through the internet and infect you via PC or laptop.

Might be time to switch to Apple.

I can own it.
My opinion is seldom the popular one here on ATS.
