Those contributing to this article might wish to consider whether writing the article like a news report is really a good idea.

Phrases such as "is harming", "are now" and "is also" will all need to be updated by somebody in a few days or weeks.

Statements along the lines of "A recent poll" will also need to be fixed.--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 20:42, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't know how to incorporate it, but since this page seems a bit over serious I was wondering if there was anyway to include this youtube video on england's vs america's news on ebola or at least the bit about Dele Adebola: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAz-F1QnyCk Arachne1988 (talk) 07:25, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

EBOLA IN AMERICA - WE'RE SCREWED Says Major Garrett in OPEN MIC at Press Conference (Full)

Major Garrett is Chief White House Correspondent with CBS News and Correspondent at Large with the National Journal. So he is no expert on these things but his opinion of what is happening with Ebola is obvious.. and ominous. Major Elliott Garrett is Chief White House Correspondent with CBS News and Correspondent at Large with the National Journal. Major is his proper name, not indicating a military rank

If this DC case tests positive i'm........?? The woman says, "The most interesting thing is the travel has not stopped..." Major Garrett replies, "Yeah we're screwed...." and the woman then says, "if the DC test comes back positive I am ...... ??? Even though it has already been demonstrated that Ebola can be brought over to the United States by a passenger on an airplane, Obama refuses to do anything that would even restrict air travel from nations where Ebola is spiraling out of control. Back in September, Obama said that it was “unlikely” that any individual with Ebola could get through the “extensive screening” at our airports and pose a threat to the general population. That has already happened. And yet the official White House position is that there is “no consideration of a travel ban” at this point.

Barring all incoming flights from Ebola-hit countries in West Africa might seem like the best way to prevent an outbreak of the virus in the United States, but doing so would actually hurt efforts to curb the outbreak in the long run, Tom Frieden, M.D., MPH, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

According to a translated version of the article, a second nurse who specializes in infectious diseases has been struck down by the virus, although the Director General of Primary Care in Madrid said that he had no news about a second case.

An American video journalist who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia has arrived at a Nebraska hospital, where he will be treated for the deadly disease. Ashoka Mukpo, 33, arrived by ambulance Monday at the Nebraska Medical Center, CDC Ebola fears the virus could mutate and cause many more people to become infected, an “apocalyptic scenario” that threatens to cause a “humanitarian catastrophe,” according to Professor Peter Piot. ebola "ebola outbreak" u.s. usa america "united states" conference press mic microphone "open mic" journalist journalism news media viral trendy trending washington dallas texas virus disease health healthcare epidemic pandemic truth prepper grid "off the grid" prepare survival "ebola vaccine" "stop ebola" africa "west africa" patient hospital 2014 2014 "winter 2014" prediction future humanity "colloidal silver" entertainment "gas mask" "hazmat suite" mask "aid work" nurse "healthcare work" travel flight "elite nwo agenda" alex jones infowars rant gerald celente david icke lindsey williams jsnip4 demcad truth exposed obama agenda 21 rothschild george soros bioweapon lab coast to coast am gold silver bitcoin max keiser american blackout zombie

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy has declared a public health emergency for the state as a precaution during the Ebola epidemic that is affecting several countries in western Africa. He signed an order declaring the emergency on Tuesday and it gives the commissioner of the state Department of Public Health the authority to quarantine and isolate people whom the commissioner “reasonably believes has been exposed to the Ebola virus.”

“prevent any potential transmission of the Ebola virus within the State of Connecticut,” the letter says. ISIS may already be thinking of using Ebola as a low-tech weapon of bio-terror, says a national security expert, who notes that the “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” and terror groups like it wouldn’t even have to weaponize the virus to attempt to wreak strategic global infection. The Centers for Disease Control is advising funeral homes in the United States on how to handle the remains of Ebola victims, although officials are keen to stress that the development is not a cause for alarm. going off the grid

A three page list of recommendations instructs funeral workers to wear protective gear while handling Ebola victims, as well as warning them not to carry out autopsies or to embalm corpses. An executive order signed by President Obama at the end of July also allows for the “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.” Confirmation that the first case of Ebola has arrived in the United States will prompt questions as to whether the CDC will enact emergency procedures that could see even healthy Americans detained against their will.--P.S.

From what I read they used an extracted substance from wormwood to make it. Considering it grows in the area why didn't they think of it beforehand?--King RimuruRimuru Slime.png 15:29, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
