    Previous mortality rates were from highly isolated small communities with poor access to proper medial care.

    This outbreak is the largest yet and this form of Ebola isn't burning itself out as quickly as the last outbreak did which means it's spreading.
    "Strand?" I think you mean strain. LMAO

    And don't forget he may have had traces of fecal matter on his hands from his severe diarrhea or even on the seat. If he was as sick as they said he was hygiene concerns went out the window. How'd you like to be the one that put him on the stretcher or took his pulse, etc. not knowing he had Ebola?

    No, not quite as much, however:

    And AIDS virulence almost non-existent compared to Ebola. If it were to break out in New York City the devastation would be unimaginable.

    But how many of those heterosexual people were drug users?

    Let's put it this way....the wives of Magic Johnson and Arthur Ashe don't have it. Why not?

    Nobody I know. Why doesn't Magic Johnson's wife have it? Arthur Ashe's?

    Gay people typically know LOTS of people that have died of AIDS. Heterosexual people almost always know no one.
