Yep. And they've also revised the mortality rate up to 70%, which means it kills 7 out of 10 people who get sick.

They are also predicting 10,000 cases a week by December 1 in West Africa.

9000 people out of 7,000,000,000+?

Most cases in West Africa?

Not the doomsday pandemic that it's hyped up to be.

Let's look at that for a second.

Yea, maybe in your home town 9000 people having ebola would be pretty scary.

But, as a statistic of the population of the planet Earth:

9000 people with ebola equates to: 0.000128571% of the human population.

For comparison, [url=[/url] of the population of the United States believes that Obama was born in Kenya. As a rate of percentage, more people believe that our president was born in another country than there are people that have Ebola.

I'm not trying to change the subject, or diminish the leathalness of Ebola. I'm just trying to put into perspective. Yes Ebola is deadly, Yes, One person has so far died in the United States from Ebola, and a nurse who took care of that patient (out of the how many staff that had contact with that patient?) has Ebola.

I'm just trying to quell some fears that people have. Some people like to hype this kind of thing, and try and scare people with things like this for their own sick pleasure (the MSM), and hyping up the dangers of catching Ebola.

Basically, unless you live in West Africa, you have more of a chance of dealing with a birther moron, than you have in catching the Ebola virus.

They're publically saying 9,000 cases, but have also been saying that they're expecting 1.4 million cases by January. If the spread in "only" 9,000 by mid October, they must be expecting some sort of major event for such an exponential jump so quickly for a virus that they're claiming "is not easily transmitted".

I wonder what they know that we don't ?
