Do You Want Some Ebola With That Spaghetti?
I don't feel our government has any of this under control. I think we're being lied to. And I think healthcare workers - you know, those people who actually had contact with Ebola? - should be on quarantine for 21 days when they get back to the US. No reason aid groups can't raise some money and deliver food/ cover some expenses for these folks. (My opinion is based on what little we've been told about the virus and is subject to change without notice.)
So I'm concerned. And coverage about people hopping onto cruise ships and so forth and gagging all over passengers on crowded subways really doesn't do anything to allay my fears here. But I'm also not in panic mode. I'm in "stop it now" mode and I think that's where most reasonable other people are, too.
Anyway, I enjoyed this video about the differences in Ebola coverage between here and the UK. It has some strong language, but if you're up for that, I hope you enjoy it.
