I buy it.
They're keeping a lid on things.
In the US it's "EBOLA HYPE! It's all a lie!"
The rest of the world doesn't seem to agree.
UN - Ebola cases could double every two weeks
Ebola cases up sharply in Liberia
Ebola cases up sharply in western Sierra Leone
Ebola in Sierra Leone increasing to rate of more than 20 deaths per day
Meanwhile, two weeks before election time:
"US cautiously optimistic after no new Ebola in 5 days"
I actually laughed when I saw that.
CHICAGO (WLS) --
Two patients are being monitored in isolation at The University of Chicago Medical Center and Rush University Medical Center after reporting Ebola-like symptoms, officials say. Neither patient is believed to have been exposed to the disease.
The Chicago Department of Public Health emphasizes that no case of Ebola has been confirmed and they are acting out of an abundance of caution. The CDPH also states there is no public health risk.
According to officials, a child passenger was traveling from Liberia to O'Hare International Airport when they became ill on the plane.
Medical workers at University Hospital in Newark have isolated a sick passenger who landed at Newark Liberty Airport from Brussels and are evaluating him "as if he has Ebola" out of extreme caution, sources tell NBC 4 New York.
The man, a Liberian national, had traveled from Liberia to Brussels before flying into Newark on United Airlines Flight 998 just before 1 p.m., Tuesday, officials said.
He waited in line with other passengers at the customs check-in, and then was singled out for a health screening by agents because of his recent travel history, sources familiar with the screening said.
That's when officers discovered he had a fever, according to the sources. It's not clear if he was exhibiting any other symptoms of illness.
