    No body you know? Gotta love it. In your small world if it's nobody you know then it must not exist. A local guy I went to high school with that became a priest died of aids. A local attorney did too. Neither were drug users.

    How about those who are predisposed to catching it STOP catching, slaughtering and EATING fruit bats.

    And if we bankrupt Big Pharm so people can continue risky behavior who's going to deal with Bird Flu when it mutates into a airborne contagion ?
    Hey what do you know? You don't know the difference between strain of a virus vs. a strand. LMAO

    You would think bringing lice and scabbies across the border would have been enough.
    Another it's Obama's fault!

    Too funny and predictable!

    Somethings fishy if you ask me.

    Treatment for Ebola is IV hydration. They can do that in Africa.
    Drum roll please!

    It's conspiracy time! Brought to you by your host Fenton! No pun intended!

    But I'd bet both contracted it through gay sex.

    And I assure you, my travels are vastly more expansive than yours. I simply don't know any heterosexual people personally that have died of AIDS. I know plenty of gay people who can list them in droves.

    Only if ebola spreads with in the CONUS then it becomes Obama's fault.

    Keep ebola contained in Africa don't bring it here to America.

    Anyhow - I'm digressing - people need food, protein. It's not easy to suddenly find a new meat source. What would be more effective is to work on the culture of washing recently dead bodies by hand. That is the reason the numbers in West Africa are so high this time.

    Because they're their humanitarian efforts are pointless.

    So lets say we go into Afria and help stop a local outbreak of Ebola.

    So after we've risked our lives, after everything is under control, after we load up our gear and make sure our passports are in order we warn them about the dangers of the hunting of and the consumption of Fruit bats.

    So they nod and agree and swear off Fruit bats.

    A year later our organization gets a call and there's a second Ebola outbreak.

    We fly in to discover that they never stopped catching, slaughtering and consuming fruit bats.

    To stay and risk your life again is beyond the pale of even the most minimal example of human intelligence

    So those who chose to go in and risk their lives are in my opinion, on their own.

    This applies for AIDS outbreaks too.

    You're ignoring the WHO chair statement today - "experiences in Africa over nearly four decades tell us clearly that, when well managed, an Ebola outbreak can be stopped"

    They'e not pointless efforts - they've stopped outbreaks spreading for 4 decades.

    Ebola is not just found in fruit bats - other animals can be a harbour. Should people stop eating other animals? Also - as another pointed out, Ebola can survive in bodily fluids outside the body. Fruit bats are eaten by other animals and they excrete (meaning poop can be anywhere) Should people stop eating any animals? Stop eating plants that might have had fruit bat poop on them or near them?

    Ebola has no cure at present but it doesn't kill as many people as does Influenza or many other viruses which still kill lots of people now. Ebola has only been known in recorded history to kill under 5000 people.

    How many have died from the flu virus?

    You need to get a better perspective on this. Ebola is scary but it's not virulent or contagious. It's nowhere near being an "epidemic"
