That and because they're idiots.

Sorry idiots, but it is true.



I was one of the idiots for a couple of days, and if I saw him I'd apologize to the 'Same shirt' doctor for badmouthing/badtyping him. I've tried to make up for it by posting the real-deal-data on a few ebola fear threads.

The virus has yet to reach critical mass in countries of West of Africa, when I mean critical mass, its hard to tell if your touching a surface or person who might pose inoculation risk. Total reported/published cases are over 13K, the curve still looks ominous. If you say the case load doubles every 3-4 weeks. Then by end of November, it should be 26K. Some argue that the case load is much higher than what is reported.

Dec 1 st 26K
Jan 1st 52K
Feb 1st 104K
Mar 1st 208K
Apr 1st 416K
May 1st 832K
Jun 1st 1,664,000
Jul 1st 3,328,000
Aug 1st 6,656,000



Three countries on the list total population is over 20 million people. By Aug 1st, 1 in 3 people in those countries would be expected to have the disease. I would only worry if the doubling keeps pace every month.

Great, now go post them in a thread that is not about Ebola cases outside of Africa.

Oh, that info is already plastered across ATS. You know what don't post it all.

I believe that it is much higher than reported. I lived in Africa years ago and people there have very strong family ties and belief systems. There is no doubt in my mind that there are many who are hiding the ill out of fear and mistrust of the government and the agenda of other countries.

For example at one local school a water fountain was installed for students use. They refused to use it believing something was in the water. Instead they chose to drink out of the river. Authorities had to become involved after several students were eaten by crocodiles.
I wish I was making this up.
I am wondering why so many believe that there are so few cases of Ebola here? Just because we are told that?
Where is the family of Eric Duncan? Not one word or photo op with POTUS. All is just too quiet!!!! ELECTION?
A friend said he knew where they were. They had GPS monitoring devices on their ankles and were currently at the mall. LOL!

lol, your very near sighted, your myopic view of the world around sustains your happy thoughts which is good in a sense.

Yes, bla bla all you want, it does not refute my point.

This thread is not about African cases and that info has been posted a 100 times before. Your input is not needed, sorry.

Wth does that mean.

Do you know what inoculation means?


he act or process or an instance of inoculating; especially : the introduction of a pathogen or antigen into a living organism to stimulate the production of antibodies


Judging from the context of your post, I don't think you do.

If 10,000 cases in West Africa resulted in 2 individuals bringing Ebola to the USA, what does 6 million cases in West Africa imply. Possibly 600 cases brought to USA with our open borders policy, that's the reason I brought it up. Your pointing out 5 cases in USA as moving along nothing to worry about scenario. That why I say your thread is near sighted.

Save your breath. Ebola is the latest and greatest in doom porn. People on here will vehemently argue that we're all going to die and if you disagree you're a shill. Then the threat will pass, they'll act like the past few months never happened, and continue saying the government lies about everything while they post another YouTube video.

But there are not six million cases. There are about ten thousand cases. Exaggeration puts us in the realm of fantasy. We have to deal with what is, not with what may be and even less with what will never be.

I plan on stalking every bigmouth in this thread when this has passed in a few months without it ever becoming a pandemic or even nearly reaching the projected numbers in Africa.

We believe there were so few cases here because no one can keep their mouths shut. No one can keep a secret and every one wants to be Karen Silkwood. (Whistle blower) There are no cases we don't know about. Relatives of the sick would be ranting to the news outlets. They would post it on Facebook, they'd shout it from the mountain tops. Telephone, telegraph, tell a friend... No way we wouldn't know.

You say that now but when the time comes and you look at the list you realize it's just too much work.

Good post.




So what does that say about the communicability of Ebola vs other diseases. What does that say about its ability to ever become a global threat?


And what does it say about the ability of a lot of ATS members to discern real issues from non issues?


That, you will find is the real issue. And don't forget fact from fiction.

Yet only 2, max 3 people were infected outside of Africa, even though there had been no travel restrictions or screening, esecially in the beginning.

You can be scared as much as you like, but the facts don't support your fears. Get real.


There were restrictions on patients travel, yes, there was in Africa. Doctors there did not want them spreading it to the rest of the world. Many doctors prevented patients from leaving to contain the virus and like I said, some died doing so.

You are being woefully ignorant.

The doctor prevented the spread of Ebola in Nigeria – and paid with her life. Now we should honour her, and the other health workers whose dedication is inspirational

Take notes. Sounds rather arduous to me.

You can clearly see in the post you qouted that I was talking about travel outside of Africa so how is your comment even remotely relevant? Seems like you were scanning my replies and saw something you thought I was wrong about but you didn't even get that right.

So there is some sort of set formula that says that for every 5,000 cases there is 1 case that makes it to America, according to your logic.

Ridiculous and based on absolutely nothing. What allows you to make the assumption that there is such a relation?

And as if they would be allowed to fly in if the situation was even remotely as bad.
