    The virus can survive for several hours on surfaces, so any object contaminated with bodily fluids, like a latex glove or a hypodermic needle, may spread the disease. According to the C.D.C., the virus can survive for a few hours on dry surfaces like doorknobs and countertops. But it can survive for several days in puddles or other collections of body fluid at room temperature. Bleach solutions can kill it......snip~


    What never seen kids play in puddles? Kick water around, walk thru them and stomp their feat sending water splashing all around. Not like that could happen in todays 21st century world.....huh?

    Looks like enough to go around they are saying.
    We need to spend money for updated equipment and training.

    How do conservatives propose we pay for it? Tax cuts for the rich and the Laffer curve?

    I suppose the military-hating Marxist on the golf course had to send four thousand troops to ebola country instead of preventing people from ebola country from entering the US.

    Who signed up to protect the nation so the marxist could send them, to a foreign country, not to defend the nation but to get sick and possibly to die unnecessarily?

    I did in the last great pandemic during WWI with the first cases reported in Ft. Devens, Massachusetts among young healthy troops. The crazy thing about that flu strain was it used the victims strong immune system to work against them.

    I think it is time for the welfare recipients to do their share.

    I really don't know what conservatives would think.....but now if it is me. I would go with Taxing the Left 10 times more. So they could appreciate all they had. Just sayin.

    They always disinfect them. Moreover, if the guy was coughing a lot they would have put masks on. Finally, even if they were exposed, they would not pass the disease onto anyone else until they were symptomatic.

    This fearmongering over ebola is ridiculous. People need to HTFU and quit being irrationally afraid of everything.

Hell, almost 5% of the population today either has HIV/AIDS.

    As far as the nurses go, look, it's just cause this is the new flashy disease, and they've been listening to the hype and are of course scared of it. Nurses are already trained on how to take care of patients with AIDS; if you take the precautions as normal then your fine. Let me say it this way; you cannot catch Ebola simply by being in the same room as someone with it.
    Not yet! :-)

    Every conservative is just two steps away in any discussion from the welfare queen talking point.

    Man, this issue has brought out the crazies.
