    Well then lets do nothing. We sure don't want to LOOK racist in front of the world. Or each other.
    Like I said in another thread, a few million sick and dying on the streets will change our minds.

    It reminds me of loading bombs on aircraft that weren't live and then moving on to the real thing. Somehow the real thing that could kill you was a little different.
    And yet, you used exactly the same procedures to handle the live ones.

    There are five diseases more deadly than Ebola is the USA already! Why are you not all dead?

    Basic hygiene is protective. Those nurses should know better AND already be trained. Gloves, face masks and simple eye protection will prevent the patient's bodily fluids contacting yours. Don't shag them and you'll be safe.
    Don't work out, work in.

Do you guys even know what Ebola is? You transmit the disease from prolonged exposure to bodily SECRETIONS, not just fluid. This isn't a case like the flu (which will kill 20,000 Americans in this country this year, as opposed to this "global epidemic" which has so far killed 936 people in total... all of which in Africa) where the disease can be carried in droplets in the air. Heck, did you know that even if you kissed a person with Ebola, you're still not going to catch it. The only reason Ebola is as scary as it is, is because it's in Africa where there is extreme poverty, poor sewage treatment (or people just poop, pee, and bathe in the same water source), and they still believe doctors look like this:



    If the disease started here in the use, you'd end up with probably ten or so cases a year and that's all. So how about we all relax and stop perpetuating the idea that this is something bigger than it will be. Hell Swine Flu was scarier than this... and killed more people (it's estimated that since 2009, over 500,000 people have died from that. For god's sake, Malaria has killed more people world wide than Ebola!

    Heya H Buddha. That's over 3k now aaaaaaaaaaaand its still spreading.

    Nurses, the frontline care providers in U.S. hospitals, say they are untrained and unprepared to handle patients arriving in their hospital emergency departments infected with Ebola.

    Many say they have gone to hospital managers, seeking training on how to best care for patients and protect themselves and their families from contracting the deadly disease, which has so far killed at least 3,338 people in the deadliest outbreak on record.....snip~

And they really do have fears of modern medicine that has made it very difficult to treat many diseases, not just Ebola but HIV/AIDS as well. Finally, it has nothing to do with race, but with how poor these countries area. For example, Nigeria, also has cases of Ebola, has the situation contained. However, they are also a nation that is far more wealthy than Liberia or Sierra Leone.

    I lived there over two years, I've been there on multiple occasions for additional months. His claim is completely full of ****.

    I already noted your racist crap above, so spare me.

    It took the CDC 5 DAYS to clean and secure that apartment in Dallas.

    If that's the case why are they doing it just now in the last hour and it's a private contractor?
