To quote a yahoo comment on this article:
I pity the person who sat next to this man on the airplane.
Or, the stewardess who touched his hand while serving a drink.
Or, the person checking the man’s passport.
Or, the people handling the luggage.
Or, the person that was standing too close when the man coughed.
Or, the individual who sat on the toilet right after this person.
Or, the relative and/or friend who gave the man a hug as a greeting.
Or, the person who cleaned the man’s plate at a restaurant.
You get the point....
This can be dangerous, very, very dangerous
Or anyone who had any contact with any of those people, or their families, or their friends.
OR ANY OF THE PEOPLE THOSE PEOPLE KNOW...
Is Ebola that transmittable? I thought Ebola could only be spread through the blood. Or perhaps, yes, mucus, but realistically, I sincerely hope it isn’t that easily spread.
Indeed. . .and this incident underscores just how serious a public health hazard ILLEGAL aliens are, as they have NO medical screening at all. . .why is the US experiencing a rise in third-world diseases, infections and illnesses?
Canada’s health ministry had feared the virus may have crossed continents after a man was hospitalised with symptoms consistent with Ebola infection after returning from Liberia.
But a spokesman for Canadian Health Minister Rona Ambrose told AFP on Tuesday tests on the patient had proved negative.
As Pogo might have said, “I hope this means that it ain’t all what it might be.” Do we dare trust the Canadian Health Minister?
