In the worst-case scenario, the two countries could have a total of 21,000 cases of Ebola by Sept. 30 and 1.4 million cases by Jan. 20 if the disease keeps spreading without effective methods to contain it. These figures take into account the fact that many cases go undetected, and estimate that there are actually 2.5 times as many as reported.

I am not the slightest bit worried about any of the 3(4) listed 'fears'.
I fear lots of things, but not these which are little more then nuisances for me (unless you live in the Ukraine, ISIS territory, West Africa/have/may have Ebola and/or are 'all in' for the markets - none of which applies to me).
I am far, FAR more concerned about the public/government paranoia that these events will incur which will cause more and more rights to be taken away from law-abiding people in the name of 'government protection' or 'national security' then I am about the events themselves.
The American masses predilection to panic at the remotest sign of trouble never ceases to amaze me.
Take Ebola? What are there; four confirmed cases (that are still alive) in America and the masses just go on and on, the media won't shut up and Obama hires an 'Ebola Czar' (?!?). An Ebola Czar...for 4(?!?) cases?

Thousands of Americans will die of the flu this winter and the masses don't even bat an eye. But four Americans have Ebola and 'everyone' starts freaking out and Obama hires an 'Ebola Czar'?
Grow a spine America.

I believe all are blown vastly out of proportion. Fear mongering is the way the media gets viewers and politicians gain supporters.
