Wow. A news interview that sensationalizes. Haha.

I like the Lloyd Christmas reference
"......so you're saying there's a chance!"

And worrying about Ebola going airborne is not sensationalizing? It's not. Could it? Sure, but the medical community thinks it's unlikely at this point.

We can't worry about everything that could happen. We know what the virus is now, how it's transmitted, and we should focus on setting ourselves up (and other countries) on how to best deal with it.

Again, if it goes airborne, there ain't shit we can really do without a vaccination (and even then, that's not 100%).

I bring up the point of the black death, our species survived it, with a lot less resources, we will survive Ebola.

the black death really is not a good model
1/3 of the population died

to have 2.5 billion people die would be , wow, what?


perhaps a reasonable culling for an over populated planet

the origins are probably bush meat
bats in some regions of Africa


bats are carriers of Ebola and do not die from it.


ETA

a decent article here

My point deep is that we have survived much worse.

And even if ebola turns into doomsday, what do you propose we do? All I hear is fear and we should be very concerned.

Cool, now that I'm scared what should I do next?

Ban all Africans from leaving their continent ?

Let's just relax and let things play out and our medical and government officials do what they're supposed to.

We as individuals don't have much say

Isn't that supposed to be one of the first things you do in the event of a major outbreak?

Read the comments for the cnn and other sites. It's exactly what people are saying (revoke anyone from those countries)

I just get tired of reading how bad this COULD be when its not. Is there potential? Of course, but this stirring up emotions does no good.

Do we even know how the patient is doing? Again, he's going to receive so much better care here in the states than in Africa. Those that came in contact with him, will be monitored.

This isn't an airborne virus. So unless these people got really, really close to him, while he was contagious, it isn't worth freaking out over.

"If they're not lying, they are grossly incompetent," said Dr. Gil Mobley, a microbiologist and emergency trauma physician from Springfield, Mo. as he checked in and cleared Atlanta airport security wearing a mask, goggles, gloves, boots and a hooded white jumpsuit emblazoned on the back with the words, "CDC is lying!" As The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Mobley says the CDC is "sugar-coating" the risk of the virus spreading in the United States.





As The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports,

A Missouri doctor Thursday morning boarded a plane at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport dressed in full protection gear to protest what he called mismanagement of the crisis by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Dr. Gil Mobley checked in and cleared airport security wearing a mask, goggles, gloves, boots and a hooded white jumpsuit emblazoned on the back with the words, “CDC is lying!”

“If they’re not lying, they are grossly incompetent,” said Mobley, a microbiologist and emergency trauma physician from Springfield, Mo.

Mobley said the CDC is “sugar-coating” the risk of the virus spreading in the United States.

“For them to say last week that the likelihood of importing an Ebola case was extremely small was a real bad call,” he said.

“Once this disease consumes every third world country, as surely it will, because they lack the same basic infrastructure as Sierra Leone and Liberia, at that point, we will be importing clusters of Ebola on a daily basis,” Mobley predicted. “That will overwhelm any advanced country’s ability to contain the clusters in isolation and quarantine. That spells bad news.”

...

Mobley, a Medical College of Georgia graduate who had an overnight layover after flying to Atlanta from Guatemala on Wednesday...

“Yesterday, I came through international customs at the Atlanta airport,” the doctor told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The only question they asked arriving passengers is if they had tobacco or alcohol.”

One dude versus the entire CDC, I trust the CDC, along with the WHO and NIH, not some random ass doctor.
