    CDC expected to release report predicting as many as 1.4 million Ebola cases by Janua

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is expected to release a report Tuesday predicting as many as 550,000 to 1.4 million cases of the Ebola virus in Liberia and Sierra Leone alone, by the end of January.

    The CDC calculations are based, in part, on assumptions that cases have been dramatically underreported. Other projections haven't made the same kind of attempt to quantify illnesses that may have been missed in official counts.

    I sincerely hope the CDC are way off in their predictions. This could be catastrophic on a worldwide level.

    Bubonic Plague wiped out more than 100 million people at a time when there weren't very many people on the planet compared to now.

    Better get this under control fast.

    This tells me it's beyond bodily fluid transmission.

    And people in the abortion threads were worried about over population. Pfft.

    I'm surprised that lots of people are not taking Ebola serious. I wonder if it was the same about the plague or H1N1...
    This thing is serious especially when they are researches proving that some types of the virus are airborne (Canadians conducted researches in 2012).

    Seems folks don't even want to discuss the possibilities.

    It killed more than that, wiping out as much as half the population of Europe. What I can't understand is why on Earth at least one Ebola infected person was brought to the USA for treatment. Talk about a disaster waiting to happen.

    The bird flu of 1918 killed a bunch of people too.

    The 1918 flu pandemic (January 1918 – December 1920) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus.[1] It infected 500 million[2] people across the world, including remote Pacific islands and the Arctic, and killed 50 to 100 million of them—three to five percent of the world's population[3]—making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history

    OK Mr. epidemiologist. What tells you that? Certainly not those numbers or the localization. If it was airborne it would be around the world by now.
