Good thing they wont get on planes and spread the disease worldwide.

Well for one thing, these deadly and contagious diseases could spread and kill us all!

The guards at those clinics should have shot them dead when they tried to assault the staff to take them out of the clinic.

The risk of that virus spreading and killing 95% of the people it infected in the community warrants such as horrible response to that.

This is one of those very limited times when authorities should be encouraged to shoot stupid people before their actions lead to the deaths of others.  A bullet to the head would be a lot less painful than dying of ebola
 
2014-05-28 02:51:09 PM  
This blows my mind. Even if one of my closest family members got Ebola, I'd be freaked out about going  near the hospital they were in. Much less actually going in and schlepping them back home where they'd be "safe". I feel bad for how misinformed those folks are.

With Ebola, it's mandatory BSL4 shielding or I'm not going near those people. I'd prefer not to die by BLEEDING FROM EVERY SINGLE BODILY ORIFICE.

They had a pre-paid trip to Walt Disney World in beautiful sunny Orlando, Florida and having declined trip insurance were damn sure not to miss out on their fun.

You'd do the same.

Oh great. My SO is working just north of there for the next ten days.

On the plus side, maybe when she returns Stateside the CDC will save me a trip to the airport by picking her up instead.

Great way to weed out the stupids.

Too bad about the inevitable collateral damage.

That is NOT an ebola virus, like all filoviruses Ebola looks like a shepherd's crook, a knot on one end and a few strands leading off it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebola_virus_disease

Terrifying and almost certainly a death sentence for the people taken out of medical care, it will probably kill any untrained person that comes into contact with them.

of course if they spilled blood at the clinic then 95% of clinic (including guards) would get infected.  Guards picked a lousy week to stop sniffing glue.

Calm down - once they find their local witch doctor and he farks a virgin goat and paints the southern-most facing wall of a burning school yellow, the freed patients will be cured and the disease will be eradicated.

This right here.  Even Jesus wouldn't have gone near this disease without a hazmat suit.  Sounds like these family members were dreadfully unappreciative of exactly what it is that Ebola is capable of.  They've condemned those who they were trying to save - and likely themselves and others as well - to a gruesome and horrific death.

Scary how a tiny creature can mess you up completely like that. Keep in mind that there are probably worse viruses that still dormant waiting for the day, they awaken.

With a max incubation period of 21 days, I'd think getting from Freetown to just about anywhere, looking healthy, is doable.  Once ID'ed it would be stomped on hard, but MSM would be happy for a few weeks.  Visiting family in NYC and helping out at their restaurant, would be news panic worthy.

Or perhaps this narcissistic angry loser was too much even for therapists and he should have been committed.

I've heard the Ebloa virus describe many ways, but "narcissistic angry loser" is a new one.  I agree, however, that it may be too far gone to be reasoned with psychologically.
