While the Ebola infection rates are still doubling every three weeks,


Doubling every three weeks? In the US, the index case infected two people, almost exactly three weeks ago. They did not infect anyone else, and have been cleared of the virus. A second imported case appears not to have infected anyone so far. Similarly negligible "outbreaks" have also been stemmed in Spain and several African countries. Outside West Africa, the infection rate is at--or hovering very near to--zero. Doubling zero is still zero.

What do you expect on ATS? lol


Some folk really need to actually look into ebola what it can and what it can not do I think.

Now the real conspiracy is why the media in the US are blowing it right out of proportion.
Everywhere else they are playing it down and telling us facts about it (in the UK they are anyhow) but in the USA it's a media frenzy.

Please stop calling people who believe differently from you sheeple. It's rude and implies that that person is stupid. I don't see stupidity I see differing but articulate opinions being offered. Try showing some respect. Nothing being offered by opposing opinions so far is stupid. Please...

Does that depend on your location?

Like what if your talking to me and I'm I'm Africa?


Africa is the largest continent on the planet. LOL. It's still exponential. If you're in Johannesburg or Cairo or even in Madagascar you'll probably be ok.

I have made no claims.
Well, I guess I have made one.
Ebola can become a worldwide pandemic in it's current form.
Your claim is that if it hasn't happened yet, then it's never going to happen.
How can one refute such wisdom?

Well one of the traits of a pandemic disease is that it spreads whenever it gets the chance, like in a plane full of people. If it doesn't at all in multiple cases, why would it do so in future cases? Yes it does in Africa, because, for instance, they like to drag around their dead loved ones.

Here is another chance for you to explain why it would act differently in the future. Again, I'll await your answer.

Cases inside Africa: 10,000.

The response to the crisis: priceless.

There's no doubt that that the media has taken the ball and ran with it, But still Ebola has claimed thousands of lives and it needs to be nipped in the bud.

It absolutely CAN become a worldwide pandemic. But not by a healthcare worker walking around when they are not confirmed to be contagious. It can become a worldwide pandemic by us fueling our ignorance of how the disease spreads, and by ostracizing the very people who can help save us.

. This thread is devolving like so many others have with personal insults. Too bad. We might have learned something if we could have kept the venom out. Not saying you spread venom. Just making an observation I guess.

Congrats.

That's still exponential isn't it? Just the other end of the spectrum. If you're in Liberia avoid crowds and don't tend the dead.

Wow autumnwitch woke up on the controlling and incredibly logical side of the bed today, or what they call the wrong side of the bed where I'm from.

Also it's a good thing their informing th public of Ebola it's probably saving lives.

Come on, the guy is asking for it. He has been given multiple chances to explain why it would become a pandemic, opposed to the facts. All he responds with is childish passive aggressive drivel.

I think what he's saying is that we shouldn't expect it to suddenly start behaving in a manner contrary to its history. That's kind of like worrying about pigs flying. The little Gieco fella excluded of course. a reply to: badgerprints

I don't think so, since the history shows that it hasn't really spread outside of Africa at all.

Getting post banned for two weeks taught me something. I'm thinking if others can learn from my mistakes it's a good thing. I hurt my head falling off a bike when I was a kid. I made my kids wear helmets. It's the same thing.
I'm not trying to control anyone just spreading wisdom. LOL. I have a cat who says wow whenever I enter a room. Who am I to argue.
