    He's doing that thing that conservatives do, where when liberals respond to "kill all the wetbacks who cross the border" with "you're a racist," therefore liberals are always calling everyone racist on the subject of illegal immigration.

    Ebola is the most lethal virus on the planet and fact that symptoms don't always appear for 21 days is disconcerting for obvious reasons. Simple sweat (a bodily fluid) can transmit the disease.

    If someone can contract it in a scrub area I wouldn't underrate it. If it mutates to respiratory transmission we have a pandemic on our hands.

    But when he landed in Lagos, Sawyer, 40, collapsed getting off the plane. He had been infected with Ebola in Liberia, where he worked as a top government official in the Liberian Ministry of Finance.

    Sawyer was isolated at a local Nigerian hospital on July 20. He died five days later.

    Sawyer's wife Decontee Sawyer, lives in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, with the couple's three young daughters, 5-year-old Eva, 4-year-old Mia, and Bella, who is 1. The Sawyers are naturalized citizens; their daughters were born in the United States.

    Video at site.

    They're looking for upwards of 30,000 who may have had contact with this man. This is starting to look like a bad movie.
    the doctors and antibody teams ave had great success is potentially finding a vaccination for Ebola - the syerm consists of using transfusions and giving the transfusuions to the sick with the anti-body. I t has shown a lot of success as far as known cases of Ebola but the fundamental problem with the transfusion is a risk of AIDS, Hep B, Hep C, Typhoid etc, and even then if they're cured they are still quarantined because they still cary the Ebola virus but are just immune to it.


    Those who survive are almost treated as a lepror colony.

    I've heard that doctors are reusing needles as a common practice. Perhaps cleaning them is how some doctors have come down with the illness.

    Also, because they can't seem to abstain from sex when needed, the fact that Ebola can exist in their sperm for 2 months after the symptoms disappear comes into play.

    Enough to scare the crap out of health officials, and shut down airports.

    Why don't you go to a major international airport near you, and then keep us posted.

    The doctors from the west don't reuse needles. The destitute native clinics areas were the ones doing it. They had no choice.

    I note a tone of distain for ""they""can't abstain from sex when needed." There are a lot of humans of all cultures and races that have a problem abstaining. Hence birth control.

    Been there, done that, still don't see the issue as being the hyped drama or hysteria of OP. What is it that you see when you go to a major international airport that scares you so much, and whatever it is, I suggest that if you're soooo scaredy or it's causing such high anxiety, you maybe shouldn't go to airports.
