TommyJReed: Just like it is technically possible a black hole swallowed up MH370. possible? yes. Probable? no.Ebola infections come from handling infected blood or fluids. Many of the Infections are primary care providers such as nurses, or Family Members involved in washing and preparing the bodies for funerals. There are also the economic factors to consider, I would wager that not many of the infected or dead could afford an airline ticket.
dahmers love zombie: My doctorate isn't in medicine, but really, anyone making that moronic of a statement is amazingly silly. Yes, if you begin showing symptoms during the flifht, and vomit blood all over every single pax, then they quarantine the plane. Problem solved.
Cantankerous Gnome: Had to read the "The Hot Zone" in my freshman year of high school, and now I want to read it again. I wonder where my copy is? The first chapter about the guy showing all the symptoms on the plane is disgustingly awesome.
docmattic: lohphat: Ebola is not an airborne virus, it requires direct contact.But let's not mention that and cause a blind panic anyway.Not entirely correct. Although direct contact is the principal method of transmission, Ebola and many of the hemorrhagic fever viruses can be spread by aerosolization as well:http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/abroad/pdf/vhf-interim-guidance.pdf/on the upside, the same document says that transmission has never been found to happen from people before they develop symptoms (i.e. fever).//yikes
AverageAmericanGuy: Then again, Jocelyn Elders was also Surgeon General, so it's not like the bar is set especially high.
