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.
I was wondering, if a person is quarantined how do they pay their bills? Is there some form of coverage I wonder.

This whole thread is laughable at itself.
Here is the issue. It is the people not thinking about the consequence of it getting to worse case scenario.
Never EVER in life should anyone prepare for the best case scenario! Why is that such a hard concept to handle? There is no fear about it; simple being prepared is not wrong and I also see no PH.D's in here saying other wise.
Most of you are keyboard warriors and nothing more who can't pick up a book to educate themselves.
Droplet Contact: coughing or sneezing on another person while infected. That is a very definition of airborne. Now, does it float around the air for hours and hours? No! But that still begs the question as to why prepare for the best case scenario and not the worst?
Ferguson is a great example. If the cops hadn't shown up, that place would be in utter chaos right now. They prepared for worse case and went with it. Most of you will not get that because you want to fit this hippie image that doesn't exist or cannot think outside the box.
Ebola needs to be dealt with. The world has a 24/7 connection, meaning I can travel the world in about 24 hours. Thus, I can drag ebola anywhere I want to, that is the issue. Something so miniscule and utterly harmless has become the most powerful weapon because of the 24/7 connection.
Not hard to understand that it isn't Fear-bola. It is understanding-bola.
Take a step out of the relm of ATS and into a medical book. I mean seriously AutumnWitch657 registered in 2013 and has 4,283 replies. ATS isn't reality anymore because the internet is a tool that the governments use to make a case.
Most of you are downplaying ebola, the internet is downplaying ebola, the MSM is downplaying ebola. I think they do not want to ensue panic because no force in the world can stop a rioting public.
Ebola is real, understand the risks and move on with daily life. Not a hard concept.

This aint over. Mr. Duncan wont be last to bring Ebola here. In fact Terrorist might even bring it here on purpose and intentionally spread it. They could do a lot of damage before we even know what they are doing. If they will blow themselves up, they will certainly accept getting Ebola coming here and intentionally spread it. Imagine how fast an Ebola infected person could spread the disease working at a fast food drive through.
Out government has a LOT of work to do to get this contained far beyond the Duncan case.

You want public reaction to fear mongering? Google this: flu shot and ebola. There's an adorable little article titled "Want to help combat ebola? Get a flu shot." This will be your public reaction. People lining up to combat ebola, at the local walgreens and fear-pressuring each other to get the shot.
PS I read two books a week. My kindle has almost 200 books stored in the cloud. I have three from the public library on my bedside table right now.
It baffles me why you want to resist being calm about something. It truly does. Why do you actually WANT to fear things? It's such an emotionally draining condition to be in a constant state of fear.
