What, so she can give the writer a cold or the flu! We KNOW that's NOT how Ebola is spread! You're watching too much Faux News. It is NOT spread through casual contact, it is NOT air born. You have to come into contact with bodily fluids of somebody who is INFECTED and SYMPTOMATIC! This has been the case since we first encountered Ebola over 30 years ago, and no matter what idiot rightards like George Will speculate, that has NOT changed. So, if somebody's vomiting, or suffering explosive diarrhea, then DON'T TOUCH IT, and you won't get it. Healthcare workers get it, because they clean that stuff up, so they come into contact with it!
The best example of how hard it is to catch Ebola came from the family of the ONLY person to die of Ebola in the United States. Thomas Eric Duncan's family lived with him for several days while he was SYMPTOMATIC! His fiance slept in the same bed with him during this time, yet NONE OF THEM CAUGHT IT!
Jesus, stop with the FEARBOLA already! All you righties are so gullible! To paraphrase the bad idea of the Bush Administration with some good advice for us now, WE NEED TO FIGHT IT OVER THERE SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT IT OVER HERE!
