Yes and they’re probably being escorted into the U.S. by DHS.

The “good” news is that it’s transmitted via bodily fluid contact and not airborne. Some novelist had a scenario about someone making an airborne version of the virus... That would be scary.

Which is why the medical staff, including US trained personnel, are catching the disease??????

Delta has direct flights from Atlanta to Lagos. United has them from Houston.

The US is too sparsely populated for this to be HUGE here. It would rip through New York and the like, but it would burn itself out pretty quickly. Unless someone was intentionally spreading it. ( Cue coast to coast music bed )

I don’t think it is a huge concern to us up here in Canada. We lack the temperature, humidity, millions of years of human dirt and filth. The freeze and thaw cycle also helps limit the spread of other diseases which weaken the human body...when was the last time we had malaria? When the dinosaurs ran free on the prairies?

That wasn’t a novelist, it was lizard expert Dr. Eric R. Pianka at the University of Texas at Austin who proposed that it would be a good thing if a pulmonary form of ebola wiped out 9 out of 10 people on Earth.

He said this during a speech at the Texas Academy of Science, while receiving the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist Award, and received a standing ovation from all but two people, one who reported him to the FBI for encouraging biological terrorism, and the other who later confirmed this account.

Since his advocacy of unparalleled human homicide, in front of people who might someday have the capacity to carry out his nightmare for real, Pianka has become deeply offended that his ideas are not popular except among the elite, and has said that “his life has been flip turned upside-down by ‘right-wing fools.’”

That is, people who are not thrilled with the idea of six billion people being slaughtered for the ha-has of an inhuman super-villain.

Ebola is spread from human to human. Canada is just as likely as the US for it to show up there.

That’s what I heard reported, but Fox and CNN are not reporting the death:

Yes , it is and can be spread from human to human. I doubt it’s survival rate and transmission rate here in Canada.

Also, relative to African cultures, we are very different.
Our cultural habits will grossly affect its transmission. You can see this in the aids stats when you compare Africa to America/ Canada.... and YES! WE got that too from Africa!

This from the same folks who said SARS and H1Nwhatever wouldn't jump species.

Glad to see there is someone else who knows about Prof. Pianka. To think he teaches this to his students. Of course, he’s not positioned himself at the front of the extermination line.

The infected doctor's wife and kids just flew back to the US a couple days ago. The wife worked in the hospital delivering meals to patients.

Some of you might know this but Ebola has been here in the United States before; Reston, Va. We were lucky that time.

You think Michelle might dress up Obama in one of those Bee Keeper outfits this week? He’ll be face to face with a multitude of African Leaders for a conference. It would be ‘most unfortunate’ were he to catch some sort of bug...... Wouldn’t it?

Dr. Eric Pianka should team up with Princeton Professor of Ethics Peter Singer. Singer believes in selective infanticide, or ending a life after the child has been born.

Yup, but there’s nothing you can do about it, so relax. You’d either die vomiting black bile as part of a species ending plague, or you won’t. Probably won’t... unless you do.

Dr. Kent Brantly’s, who’s family just flew back a few days ago, lives in Ft. Worth, TX. He has family in Indiana who were expecting him for a wedding.

Fort Worth, TX and Indiana? I wonder if going to the wedding meant a short layover in Chicago?

From your article:

“Nigeria’s airports and ports are on red alert following the death of a man from Liberia who was carrying the virus. It was the first case in Africa’s most populous country.

He vomited and had a high fever on board a passenger plane, and was immediately quarantined upon arrival in the capital Lagos.

He died in hospital on Friday.”

I fly a lot and people throw up quite often on airplanes.

Probably not vomit laden with ebola virus particles though.

And how well do you think this plane and its bathroom were cleaned/disinfected before it flew on to subsequent destinations?

I hope not since one time they threw up on me.

Vomit is treated as a biohazard but certainly not good enough for this stuff.
