    Don't bother panicking just yet. Remember that it's only spread through bodily fluids. Don't go swapping spit or blood with anybody and you're probably fine. This was pretty much bound to happen eventually.

    I found out about this a a bit earlier today. I'm slightly worried but like @Verrkol said, I think I'll be okay so long as I don't go around being a hoore. ;3

    My little virus can't be this deadly

    Well, I'm scared as I heard there was a patient in Omaha as well :( I live in Lincoln, NE, so yeah.

    Whatever. It's nothing to be worried about. Remember when bird flu was going to kill us all?

    That was spread through fluids too, and nothing serious came of it. Wash your hands and generally have good hygiene and you'll be absolutely fine.

    That patient was flown in from somewhere to get treatment in Omaha. The patient was in full quarantine the entire time. You're safe. :P Just ask Kit.

    While I'm kinda far from Dallas, about a 4 hour drive from San Antonio, this news left me unsettled. I heard a rumor, emphasis of rumor, that some children may have been exposed. IMHO, once children get it and it infiltrates public schools it's a landslide from there, but I am no biologist.

    Can you guys please quit being paranoid? As already stated in this thread, it can only spread through bodily fluids. It's not going to be spread all over the damn place like the common cold or flu. Just keep yourselves hygienic (washing hands is a huge one), don't drink from other people's beverages and such, and it shouldn't even be a thought in your head.

  12. Default Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas


    Ideally and realistically, it should be very easily containable. However, it really only takes one psychopath or one undetected carrier to spread it. Certainly, this shouldn't be a major thing on anyone's mind, but it also shouldn't be taken too lightly. I don't think this is going to be an epidemic of any sorts, but it's always a good idea to be aware and safe.

    There are people that knowingly spread other terrible diseases to people, like AIDS, I don't see why this would be any different. Paranoia is a good thing, panic is not.

    Yeah, good to keep in mind that while paranoia is understandable, all you just need to do is be careful.

    I think part of it is because of the sheer number of people with HIV/AIDS which makes it far more of a problem : a handful of people are easy to convince to act rationally and possibly get better (As is the case with ebola).

    In a horrific truth, the relatively fast death from ebola also likely helps to prevent it spreading. People will want to be quarantined because most won't want to risk killing friends and family, the effects will be hard to hide, and if they want any chance at all of surviving, it's probably best to speak up right away.

    1) AIDS is not a disease, it is a condition. HIV is the disease.
    2) HIV is no where near the same level as Ebola. HIV is easily spread because you can have it but have no idea until it is faaaaaar too late. Ebola is not the case.

    Ebola is hard to spread and it easily targets Africa because of the poor access to quality healthcare and superstition.

    My dad has already started with his anti-Obama conspiracy theory involving the government spreading Ebola. Please, just pineappleing please.

    Basically there's no real threat as long as the virus doesn't go airborne. The patient contracted it in Liberia, which means as of right now there are still no cases confirmed to originate in the U.S. Which means essentially any cases in the U.S. right now are contained, controlled situations with only a remote chance of spreading. Unless the infected dude is spitting on, urinating on, bleeding on, or otherwise getting bodily fluids on you, you're not going to get infected.

    I actually had a customer at work start peaching and moaning, yelling "fuck" as loudly as he could because when I was giving him the four T-Bones he wanted, he said the wrapping wasn't good enough, so he wanted it double wrapped. Okay, my gloves were off at that point and there wasn't any point in putting a new pair on, because the meat was already in a package. I just started wrapping a sheet of paper over it and he started throwing a massive fit, complaining about spreading diseases and whatnot, mentioning Ebola. My co-workers and I just looked at each other, shook our heads and unanimously agreed, "this guy is an idiot..."
