Do you think the government is being honest about how ebola spreads?

Yes, it's only through direct contact with infected bodily fluids to your mucous membranes
No, infected bodily fluids touching you anywhere on your skin can transmit the disease
No, it can survive in large droplets and infect you from up to 3 feet away
No, it can survive in small particles and infect you from up to 6 feet away
No, it can spread from 7+ feet away

Notice the spike at the tail in Sierra Leone and Guinea?  Not a good sign.  Might be kids going back to school.  Might be the due to people congregating indoors because of the weather.  Who knows.  But look at it compared to the previous year at the same time and then do the math with the current starting numbers instead of 1 or 2 cases.

Hey there SicSemperTyrannis. I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate all the work that your doing keeping everyone updated on the Ebola. You've been at this from the start and it certainly hasn't gone unnoticed. I wish others would pick a topic like you have and then keep on top of it like you have done. So I'd like to thank you from Dave and myself and all the readers as well. Great job and well done. Its people like you who help make The People forum a great source of information.

I just checked the date on when you started tracking Ebola. You've been at this relentlessly for over five months. Now that's dedication. Thanks again from all of us at The People.

Thanks RougeCoyote.

Not a lot of people comment anymore but it was important to me to keep track over the long haul regardless because I couldn't seem to find a reliable place where someone else was doing it.

I hope by this fall it'll be at zero cases but then again it might start spreading far and wide as summer comes on like it did last year.

And then there's the number of mutations its undergone. In under two years I read there's been something like 500 mutations. My chief concern is that it could become truly airborne with a higher transmission rate but lower lethality. Something akin to the flu for ease of spreading but killing 10-20% of the people who get it would still leave the world panicking.

Woman in Liberia thought to have caught Ebola after having unprotected sex with survivor SIX MONTHS after he was cured
44-year-old diagnosed on March 20, 14 days after sex with male survivor
Man tested negative for the virus 199 days before apparently passing it on
Potentially means Ebloa can survive twice as long as previously thought
