    Okay, maybe I'm starting to worry a little bit now.....

    A Spanish nurse who treated an Ebola victim in Madrid has become the first person in the world to contract the deadly virus outside of Africa.
    The 44-year-old is said to have spent the last 15 years working at Madrid's Carlos III Hospital, where the two Spanish missionaries infected with Ebola died.
    The woman, who was married, was part of the team that treated Spanish priest Manuel Garcia Viejo, who was brought back from Africa last month so that he could be treated for the deadly virus.

    If I didn't just fly international, as you know, and have like 5 or 6 Africans on the plane that NOBODY wanted to sit next to, I would say the fear is slightly unfounded, but I'm starting to think it's kinda just the opposite for those of us who live in big cities.....One sneeze from these infected zombies holding on to a subway pole, than exiting, and you grab on......it's all over....

    This person obviously missed mlaws post stating that it only happens in places where they wash their hands with shit and there is nothing to worry about.

    This is exactly how it will spread here, and proof positive that these overconfident government types are complete idiots.

    That nurse, and many other nurses and doctors, will contaminate a host of other people they see daily and it's on from there.

    its going to go around the world, in some fashion. It wont reach epidemic levels unless it's in primitive areas like Africa, which are plentiful. It wont get too far in the US, but politics and political correctness is on its side. Quarantining is not nice you see.

    It is not just this, it is that enterovirus too that is effecting and in some cases killing children.

    One thing seems to be sure - this administration has no desire to protect the citizens.

    Of course not. I'm convinced Obama is going to do as much harm to America as he possibly can before he's gone. if he leaves. Hes a muslim, and muslims are trying to take over the world, so why step down

    I'm more concerned with the numbskulls at the hospital level, for both of these viruses, and not seeing the signs for containment.....

    This is all new stuff. Who could have thought that the 5 year old who only had pink eye, went to sleep and died from enterovirus? We're in a whole new world of open borders and unchecked illnesses.

    The government's #1 job is to protect its citizens.

    Its about time to think about the unthinkable: Population control is on the government's minds.

    The type of personality that is adept at studying things like viruses unfortunately happens to also be the type of personality that is an absent-minded incompetent boob in the real world. The world of taking charge, getting things done, quarantines, and thinking ahead is as foreign to them as the world of microbes is to most real leaders. Unfortunately you don't rise to the top of their hierarchy unless you are a scientist first, so their leadership is likely to be this sort of boob outside the lab.

    The guy who discovered Ebola was interviewed and related how when he opened the thermos it was contained in, it had been broken and infected blood was swimming around in ice water from the packaging. He decided to open a package like that dressed only in a lab coat and gloves.

    Later, when the WHO told them not to mess with it and send it to them, his boss's hands were shaking so much from excitement about being a big shot and finding a new virus, that he grabbed the vial and proceeded to drop it and break it over a colleague's shoes.

    THIS is the type of nutty professors who are coming out with all the reassuring statements. They also happen to have a scary disregard for human life, repeatedly referring to obvious deaths of a realative few people here as "not a big problem". To them a potential victim in Texas is a curiosity to be studied, not a tragedy.

    That's been the hard core environmentalist's wet dream for decades now. And an increasing number are willing to discuss it openly.

    The entire agenda from controlling medical care to the over the top supporting of gay marriage is all about reducing population. Under the cloak of "compassion" of course.
