  • Ebola arrives

    A patient being treated at a Dallas hospital is the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, health officials announced Tuesday.

    The unidentified man left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    At that time, the individual did not have symptoms. "But four or five days later," he began to exhibit them,
    Good luck.

    I live 30 miles from the hospital. When I heard about it, I decided to move.

        I decided to move when I heard that 90 percent of all accidents happen within 3 blocks of your home.

              Wow. Thewriteranon is really a bad luck magnet if 90 percent of all accidents happens within 3 blocks of her home. That explains the whole Ebola thing too.

                She's going to need to take one for the team and move to Antarctica.

                  But then the ice cap would melt and flood the world.

                  I think we should just send her to the middle east till they blow themselves all up.

                        According to the medical experts, Ebola can only be transmitted if the bodily fluids of an infected person enter your eyes, nose or throat, and even then, it isn't contagious until the infected person actually starts exhibiting symptoms. And if an outbreak did somehow occur in the US, the rest of the world would intervene much more quickly than they did for West Africa. So you're probably safe in going outside and making jokes about deadly diseases that are decimating entire countries.

                          I'm fine with teasing of Thewriteranon (), but this: no. Not in this thread.

                            sounds like the zombie virus so far...

                              I'm sorry - why on earth are we letting flights come in from these countries. Hasn't the UK and France already stopped all flights from these areas?
