It's not just the media.
There are plenty of member here on ATS saying "See, it's all over. Look how stupid these people are. They were worried about Ebola. No reason to worry about ebola."
When a virus can turn you into a sack of rotted meat and the government insists that we need to import people that may have it, I worry.

6.) I think this strain has mutated enough to be less lethal and to not cause hemorrhagic syndrome as often so that the sick can move around and spread it for a little longer before becoming incapacitated.

I thought this current strain only causes the "typical" ebola bleeding in 18 percent of the people who have it. Might be wrong though.

Is the epidemic still growing?
What if we do stop this round, but India..or Brazil...or Mexico...
A question to the forum (sorry if it sounds ignorant)
An ebola infected person sweating and having a fever and possibly coughing and sneezing due to ebola on a packed london train at rush hour... How many people would this potentially infect?....
The possibilities are endless. Especially now that we're in the cold and flu season. Infected people might assume they're got either one...w/o realizing they've been infected with Ebola.
We should know in the next couple of weeks if this thing is really winding down or if it's speeding up.

Ebola might get here, but it shouldn't cause more than isolated pockets of scattered cases because of the way it spreads.
That doesn't mean it isn't something we should be worried about because if you are one of those isolated scattered cases, it's bad for you, and there are still things that could cause either of the first two conditions to occur until the epidemic burns itself out.

Dozens of people are being infected with the deadly Ebola virus each day in Sierra Leone, as the terrifying disease tears through the country's capital city, Freetown. Yesterday, forty-nine new cases were confirmed in just 24 hours, the National Ebola Response Center (NERC) reported. So many people are succumbing to the deadly virus that removing the dead bodies is becoming a serious problem. Lawmaker Claude Kamanda who represents a western area of the country said that more than 20 deaths are being reported each day.

I have considered it actually. It's turned into a crazy day with appointments and such, I've never used so much hand sanitizer in my life. I did make one contact so far. This will not be left to rest.
