    Ebola fears hit close to home

    Ebola outbreak kills an American - CNN.com

    Patrick Sawyer had one stop to make before heading home to Minnesota to celebrate his daughters' birthdays: a conference in Lagos, Nigeria.

    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.

    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.

    One American dies in another country, having contracted it in another country and it's looking like a bad movie???? I'm sure that many in those countries have been exposed by him and others, otherwise he wouldn't have been exposed. One more person isn't newsworthy. Wow, there's that drama qu... again.

    Are you aware airlines shut down service to certain cities as a result of this man's travel?

    There are times when blind partisanship needs to be replaced with intelligence. Of course, to some that is an impossible task.

    Precautions are being taken, but how many other reported infections do we have so far?

    Yes, to assure it doesn't arrive here. Hence there's no need to panic or act like USA is in imminent danger of an Ebola epidemic. Hence why the OP is unnecessarily hyped and over-dramatic for the facts being presented.

    Ebola can be very serious. Statements about ebola can set your pants on fire, according to Politifact:

    "As a physician for over 30 years, I am well aware of the dangers infectious diseases pose. In fact, infectious diseases remain in the top 10 causes of death in the United States. … Reports of illegal migrants carrying deadly diseases such as swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis are particularly concerning." -Phil Gingrey R-GA​
    And this guy was a doctor before becoming a politician. Maybe he caught the stupid virus in Washington. I hear it is quite prevalent there.

    While dangerous illnesses could be carried across the border, illegally or just on any freakin airline flight, ebola isn't a very good candidate. It's so lethal that it tends to limit its own spread. Kills the host before it can spread. Nasty little bug. Extremely high mortality rate. Hope they figure out a vaccine, but how do you volunteer to test something like that? "Ok, here's the vaccine. Now here's an injection of ebola to see if it works!" Yeah, probably not.
