“British-Nigerian woman in Austria.”

All these people seem to hop around the world at will, while I don’t even go to Greensboro. On the other hand, I won’t contract Ebola ...

I hope that’s true, but ebola might just be
coming to YOU.

I can’t help feeling that we are watching the beginning
of something that is going to change the world.

Neither will your point of departure be in a town named Vomp.

Won't hear, "Poor woman, she just upped and went Vomp."

LOL. I don’t get out much, either. You’re not too far from me. I’m an hour north of the NC border in Virginia.

Some people travel from Rhode Island to Nebraska to visit family...some travel from Britain to Nigeria. was on a flight a few months ago from New York to Dubai and got talking to the guy next to me who was going to visit his elderly mother in India.

You might not have to go to Greensboro to get it. These people who seem to have plenty of resources to fly all over the world (I wonder if any of them have EBT cards)will bring it to you and save you the trouble of looking for it.

She went through Germany on her way to Austria so add another large group of people with possible exposure.

Yeah, you and I seem pretty well anchored locally. A trip for me to Spokane now (145 miles) is a big deal. Weren’t you talking about visiting Italy a couple of years ago, though? Or was that just a dream? Please forgive me if wrong.

Thing I’m worried about is we (the town) have constant visitors coming through Dulles and from points beyond, including pretty much every country in the world with nuke plants.. In fact, my family had a visitor through Dulles just last week. Heck, even the biowarfare people come here now that the local national lab is doing detection work.

So far, the virus has not become truly aerosolized (”airborne”) but I worry about those visitors using the same door handles I do on the way downtown. Fortunately, transmission doesn’t seem to occur prior to symptoms or this would be a lot worse.

The WHO and CDC and NHS have generally been correct about the limited contagiousness and difficulty of transmission (just so we don’t get a huge spike in new cases in the next ten days or so).

Oh, you won’t have to “go” to get Ebola. Once in the US, it will come to you.
