    Default Does Ebola scare you yet? Why or why not?

    Number of Ebola cases in West Africa scheduled to DOUBLE every month. Now at about 4,200 official cases, unofficial likely to be 2 to 3x that.

    cases so far

    Does EBOLA scare you yet? When will you officially GET SCARED?
    why or why not?
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    That map does not show anything in the USA, so I wont be scared until I see a dot in the USA, that spreads.

    I live in the middle of the USA, in a sparsely populated area. I don't travel much, and the people around here rarely travel out of the country or to coastal areas. The chances of it spreading to here are extremely slim.

    I am not scared of Ebola at all.

    The most dangerous strain of Ebola with Ebola being a biohazard level 4? Yeah I'd be scared.

    something's going to kill everyone eventually, why not ebola, probably quicker than cancer.

    The potential for widespread EVD infections is considered low as the disease is only spread by direct contact with the secretions from someone who is showing signs of infection.[17] The symptoms limit a person's ability to spread the disease as they are often too sick to travel.[18] Because dead bodies are still infectious local traditional burial rituals may spread the disease.
    One of the primary reasons for spread is that the health systems in the part of Africa were the disease occurs function poorly.[22] Medical workers who do not wear appropriate protective clothing may contract the disease.[23] Hospital-acquired transmission has occurred in African due to the reuse of needles and lack of universal precautions.[
    nah im not scared, its most likely not even a airborne spread disease
