There are over seven billion people on this planet. We can afford to lose a few.

Killing off the weakest third is good genetics. Since I'm not smart enough to choose *which* third, and I don't know anyone who is,  I'll leave it to the stupid random chance.

There are over seven billion people who aren't me on this planet. We can afford to lose a few who aren't me.

Killing off the weakest third which doesn't include me is probably good genetics or something. Since I'm not smart enough to choose *which* third except that it excludes me, and I don't know anyone who is or who I'd trust to exclude me,  and this doesn't appear likely to impact me, I'll leave it to random chance, insofar as it remembers not to include me.

Random chance *does* include me. There are a lot of people on this planet worth more than me.

Except the virus doesn't care if you're amongst the 'weakest third' (however you would define that).  Healthy people can be infected as well.

The biggest danger is the virus mutating enough to spread through the air, at that point things really get turned tits up.  The more people that are infected the more of a chance one of them is going to manage to get onto a plane bound for NYC, London, San Francisco, Tokyo, or some other highly populated major international hub, which could obviously turn a regional epidemic into a global crisis.

I'd define the weakest third as those stupid enough to think a fatal virus is a hoax, or those who wish to loot infected garments and bedding from a contamination center.

YMMV.

It's not going to mutate to be airborne. It's not a danger at all.

Here's an idea.  Next time shoot to kill.  What is with this warning shot bullshiat?  This thing has a 60-90% fatality rate.  Any action that willingly risks further spread is effectively an assault with a deadly weapon.  Yes they're scared and confused, I empathize.  Their actions are directly leading to the spread of a lethal disease though.

Goddammit, open fire.

The more people it infects the greater the chance of a mutation.  It may not be something that's likely to happen, but it's possible.  Plus, even if it remains transmitted through fluids only it could infect a lot more people if it manages to take hold in a big city.

You are aware what happens after that?

I would like to be the first to blame colonialism. If it wasn't for the structures of oppression set in place by whites, these people would likely be well-educated, and aware of the danger. Instead, they've been condemned to a cycle of poverty, ignorance, and disease.

Also, if it mutates to survive in fluids other than those of bodily origin, like say, fresh water, then we're doubly boned.

The problem is that the general public got their education on infection diseases from "Pandemic" or "Plague Inc." games.

Its not going to take hold outside Africa either. Even if it was airborne.

They're already firing near the crowds.  Warning shots have the same effect.  The only difference being that the exposed are now running out into the population.  Warning shots before the breach and then shoot anyone who crosses a clearly marked boundary.

You're saying this to the same government that put the quarantine center in the middle of a densely populated neighborhood instead of out in the countryside; probably because some Liberian government official owns the slum and is getting overpaid by the government.

God know he's not going anywhere near the place.
