Ebola in the US.


Recommended Posts

I don't mind extra precautions. But my god the hypochondriacs that will happen now. I would hate to work in an emergency room. Also, I will be taking a car on all my trips and not sharing air in a airplane or going on a ship.

You know it can't be transmitted through the air right? You need direct contact with bodily fluid: saliva, blood, snot, semen, urine, poop etc.

Hypochondriacs are part of the problem, the other is the media taking each one of them as POSSIBLE EBOLA OMG

 

I'm trying to think the last time I was in contact with somebody else's bodily fluids. Eliminating anything sexual and cleaning up my kid's daily boy-wounds, the only thing that comes to mind was a beach trip a few years ago when some lady sneezed into the wind and I got a bit of spray. It was gross, but that's the only example I can think of in years.

 

So if it is that infrequent, and the person spreading such fluids has to have beat odds just as high, I think I am pretty safe. There's a lot of mixed information about how long Ebola can survive on surfaces in the wild, most experts say longer than things that would give you a cold or the flu, but not by much.

 

So you know-- wash your hands.
