Speaking of EBOLA “’We have to work now so this is not the world’s next AIDS,’ said CDC Director Thomas Frieden today at a Washington D.C. meeting of officials from the United Nations, World Bank and International Monetary Fund.”
There is one big difference, AIDS in America was and is a volunteer contracted disease driving by one personal decisions by whom you wanted to have sex with and the ‘used needles’ you stuck into your body. EBOLA , on the other hand, is an equal opportunist virus which does not discriminate and is spread by touch, if not by the air.
Virus researchers say Ebola could spread through air – and even spread without symptoms
The chorus of U.S. health officials constantly reassuring the public that Ebola can’t transmit through the air is quickly tailing off, as virologists and other disease experts say “not so fast.” Health experts know very little about the nature of the Ebola strain now in circulation, they say, and it appears as though the current iteration of the disease is much more virulent than previously believed.Dr. C.J. Peters, a former researcher who worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to study Ebola’s transmissibility in humans, is just one of many who now say that airborne transmission of Ebola can’t be ruled out as an impossibility. There simply isn’t enough data to suggest otherwise, he says.
