    Two American patients stricken with Ebola are to be flown from Africa to the U.S., ABC News has learned.

    The patients will be transported one by one, sources said.

    Meanwhile, there are plans to transfer a patient with Ebola virus infection to Emory University Hospital's special facility containment unit within the next several days, hospital officials said today in a statement. Officials added that it's unclear when the patient will arrive in Atlanta.

    "Emory University Hospital has a specially built isolation unit set up in collaboration with the CDC to treat patients who are exposed to certain serious infectious diseases," hospital officials said. "It is physically separate from other patient areas and has unique equipment and infrastructure that provide an extraordinarily high level of clinical isolation. It is one of only four such facilities in the country."

    "Emory University Hospital physicians, nurses and staff are highly trained in the specific and unique protocols and procedures necessary to treat and care for this type of patient. For this specially trained staff, these procedures are practiced on a regular basis throughout the year so we are fully prepared for this type of situation."

    Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that every deadly infectious disease comes from Africa. What the hell are those savages doing over there? :wtf:

    Airborne is a relative term in transmissions. Ebola causes micro bleeds which produce blood in sneeze and cough droplets. You need the blood contact with open skin or mucous membranes which is why they arent classifying it as airborne but as bodily fluid contact, even though it can certainly be transmitted that way.

    Don't panic yet. The media likes to whip up hysteria and scare people. While this disease may have the potential to become an epidemic it has been around for a number of years without doing so.

    More people will die of cancer in the United States just today, than have died of Ebola worldwide this year.

    Lots of Reggie's in Atlanta. Might be a ploy to thin the heard.

    Bringing Ebola infected people here(USA)...
    Wouldn't that mean that the USA will be an Ebola Country?

    Almost always something goes wrong.
    Someone or multiples will no doubt contract/spread Ebola to others.

    Oops.

    Why can't the Ebola Hospital be in fucking Nowheresville, Alaska? Somewhere Sara Palin can see from her back porch?

    We're just asking for this to mutate and turn into some kind of 28 Days Later/World War Z shit.

    Oh mah lord, this is quite the tenses!
