Just my take on the whole Ebola situation which is unfolding at a rapid speed. As we are all well aware by now, Ebola is rapidly spreading across West Africa, and has made it to shore here in the U.S. Government officials are coming out in droves to tell citizens that the situation is under control and contained. They claim that Ebola does not spread easily like the flu or a cold, and that you can only contract the virus from exposure to bodily fluids. Not a doctor here, but if that was the case, please explain why the current death toll has now surpassed 3,400 according to the World Health Organization. Meanwhile, the U.S. government has ordered 160K HazMat suits. Not trying to instil fear with this post, but maybe this is far more serious than our government officials are claiming it to be.
