If someone coughs near you, you should beat them to death but be sure to splatter their blood in the opposite direction.

THE "Red Death" had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal -- the redness and the horror of blood. There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution. The scarlet stains upon the body and especially upon the face of the victim, were the pest ban which shut him out from the aid and from the sympathy of his fellow-men. And the whole seizure, progress and termination of the disease, were the incidents of half an hour....

I'd be more worried if the CDC and/or Obama were trying to reassure us that it's nothing to be worried about.

US President Barack Obama said it is "premature" to send an experimental medicine for the treatment of Ebola to West Africa, ... Obama said. "The Ebola virus, both currently and in the past, is controllable if you have a strong public health infrastructure in place."

Run for the hills.

Hey, Rick,"Everyone is infected"

Does anyone know how these two aid workers were infected? Has there been any reports on exactly how? I have read plenty of speculation that it is probably a soft of extremely bad *whoops* moment related to exhaustion and general working conditions but I'd rather have a real sense of it.

*claps hands together* Ok everyone! *high pitched voice* Have fun at Dragon Con in Atlanta while an Ebola patient is at Emory University 17 minutes drive away.  *skips away from the computer*

The U.S. used to have a strong public health infrastructure.

Ebola sucks but autoplay videos are the worst. Doesn't anyone farking read anymore?

Wow, not only a repeat of just a handful of links down, but both headlines include "EVERYBODY PANIC"..  Also, both headlines said "panic" twice.

I suggest the best course of action is to get all the wealthy people together in a castle and have a big party.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Everyone in the world will be dead by Christmas.  Book it, done.


Incidentally, that was the original ending of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

There doesn't seem to have been an Outbreak-style "holy shiat I just stabbed myself with ebola" moment, just that one of them woke up feeling ill one morning and the other one a couple of days later. The investigation isn't done, but the idea seems to be that they both caught it from a third worker at the facility. The article I read didn't say if that would be Patrick Sawyer (the third American) or someone else.
