How Do You Feel About The Ebola Virus Coming To The U. S.?
When I heard the news that they were flying a patient with the Ebola Virus to the U.S. for treatment, my first thought was is the U.S. government putting Americans in danger. I got on the internet and looked up what the Ebola Virus was and how it was transmitted. After reading all the information it put me a little at ease. What I don’t get is that the two Americans Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Whitebol who contracted the Ebola Virus, knew how the Ebola Virus was transmitted. How come they did not take the necessary precautions or did they and they still contracted the virus? Is the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) really telling us the truth on how the Ebola Virus is transmitted or are they just speculating? I was watching the news this morning they were showing footage of an ambulance and two people in contamination suits one was said to be Dr. Kent Brantly when he arrived at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta on August 2, 2014. He walked from the ambulance with help. Dr. Kent Brantly was given some serum that was flown over to Liberia Africa. Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said "It's encouraging that he seems to be improving - that's really important - and we're hoping he'll continue to improve." I hope this is serum is the cure. The people in Liberia, Africa need it desperately. We will see in the days to come.
