Oh.. is that why the nurses that worked on Duncan became infected because our heathcare system and public officials are so prepared and capable to handle this virus? All you’re listening to is what the mainstream media is telling you about how the virus spreads but I bet you think they don’t lie either right? If this virus is in your system and you cough into your hand and then touch something you have just infected that surface. The virus can then live on that surface for days for others to come in contact with it. They pick it up and touch their nose or the corner of their eye and they’re infected and since the incubation period is so long nobody will know they’re infected until it’s too late. Don’t be naive.. this thing spreads easier than you think it does or it wouldn’t be such a problem in Africa. Believe me I hope they get it contained but it may be too late already.

Why would the CDC Lie? Really? are you that misguided that you think our government doesn’t lie? Why does our government hold a patent on Ebola? Why has our government purchased 170,000 Tyvek suits? They’re not sending them to Africa… Why has DHS purchased billions of rounds of ammunition? Why did Obama pass legislation with executive order to allow the government to seize basically whatever they want in a time of a national emergency? Wake up people! They’re gearing up for a major pandemic.

I think monitoring twice a day is plenty for somebody who has shown zero symptoms, and wasn’t even in the infected areas. And how would they know if they came into contact with somebody infected with ebola?? Are they suppose to ask everybody that comes into their line of sight or in a 50ft perimeter?? And also, what “state” is the U.S. in right now?? A state of panik?? Understandably so, but if most did their research I’m sure they would find some comfort in knowing how it’s spread. Yeah it is very serious but I know for a fact that our community leaders, law enforcement, hospitals, etc are adequately prepared in case they are called upon.

Infowars.com?? Really?! I think I’ll trust REAL Drs and professionals. But some ass hole with a blog that people like you read to try and create an uproar and thrive on scaring people need to get a life and realize how serious this is! Stop trying to discredit the ones who actually know WTF they’re taking about. Why would the CDC lie?! It’s their lives as well as the lives of their loved ones who could be affected too. So next time you try to stir up panik, I suggest you actually take a second to use that last brain cell you have and use it for the greater good.

It’s only contagious if the infected person is showing symptoms.

Why are there so few details about this case? New York and New Jersey just put stricter procedures in place regarding quarantine of such people coming in from these ebola ridden countries and you say that you don’t believe they came in contact with anyone with Ebola–What do you mean you don’t think? That’s why the U.S. in the state that it’s in right now for lack of thinking. You also say that your keeping an eye on them all the while they’re free to go from place to place and come in contact with many, many people. This is not very reassuring now is it?

Is anyone aware that the incubation perion for ebola is no 40 to 70 days. Go to infowars.com and learn the the truth. The health care community is our olny hope in stopping this. I would ask our doctors and law enforcement officials to quarnteen these people at least 41 days instead of jepordizing our whole community. The CDC should be doing this already but if they won’t it’s up to local government and the people to stop this from spreading into our communities.
