Should we believe the government when they say not to worry about confirmed case of Ebola?


There is now a confirmed US Ebola case. The CDC is quick to say we should not worry, and the chances of it being spread on the airplane trip here isn't likely. After seeing how much it spread in other places, should we really believe our government? Should we prepare, and if so how?

    You are better than I! I don't think if I were that close to it I would trust much. Just the thought of how he wasn't contained on the plane, or the days before he was admitted, I wonder about the possible spread. I'm not one to panic, I do worry.

    This is my concern. I believe very little of what they say, which naturally makes me a little more paranoid when stuff like this happens.

    I guess my concern first went to the airplane bathroom. Could a little splatter on a toilet seat be enough to infect the next person who makes the mistake of sitting on the toilet seat?

    The scarey part is that we typically come into contact with body fluids of others all the time. Sweat, Urine, saliva, and even fecal matter daily. Does Ebola live after the fluid is dry, like after someone sneezes in their hand?

    Do you read about the alternative media on the internet or listen to Pacifica Radio (WBAI 99.5FM)? Listen to Gary Null's Progressive Radio Network on the internet.

    The WMD'S had been transported to Syria before the investigation began.
