OH MY GOD OK I AM CLEARING THIS UP RIGHT NOW: The Ebola virus is primarily in West Africa so if you are anywhere else it is unlikely you will get it. Any other cases are immediately quarantined and shut down. There is a possible cure coming out currently or at least close to one. Everyone is working on it so there is nothing to fear. Plus, new outbreaks happen everyday wiping out just as many if not more people than this so why publicity has claimed this one, I don't know. In See More▼

Nah. Only 2 people here have been infected, and their both dead. It's just like the swine flu from 2006, it'll blow over eventually

It has been stopped before, the only problem was that it was in less stable modern countries, America should be able to control it

Nah! The actual host for ebola is an animal, not humans. But humans get it from animals. There have been times in the past with the SAME situation. The problem is, it doesn't work to well on humans because it kills us too quickly, before we have a chance to pass it on. It will be a problem in some of the less civilized, clean, and developing countries. But China, Canada, US, Britian, and all the big, clean countries, will get it under control. Plus, very few people get it, even See More▼

Oh yeah, and it also only spreads through bodily fluids, such as saliva, blood, etc. etc.

Actually, you're both right and wrong. The cities are very well developed and advanced in tech and science, medicine and quite rich. The rural areas are poor, and still farmers. They are almost a stage behind the cities, still traditional and relying on the land. You can't really put a label on China as it is a wide, varied country.

@JeweledOwl812 Actually China is pretty clean. It'sfully developed. It may be polluted, but its clean. If it wasn't sanitary, I doubt it would be so overpopulated.

Yes along with the new virus killing young children, the entrovirus. America needs to start taking better precautions now. Instead, people are not doing to correct ways on how to respond to these viruses and only making it worse. I hope everyone is ok and the CDC (Center of Disease Control) will stop this from spreading worse.

I got the entrovirus d68 I didn't take any meds and got through.

I would be more scared of the flu than ebola. As @Elleyd said, they are coming out with a cure, or close to one. Also, everyone in the US that has it has been sent to a facility THAT IS NOT OPENED TO THE PUBLIC to stay at. Also, you can't get ebola without coming into contact with their fluids. So, for example Bob has ebola, and I touch him, I won't get it, but if he were to sneeze on me, then I'd get it.

The Ebola, viris is not one to be scared off, if you are not in west Africa. It is unlikely to spread anywhere else. You are just to young to be afraid of a life threatening virus, so please don't be afraid, you have nothing to be afraid of

No. If america was afraid of ebola, we would stop sending help to the people that need it. So it is best to keep your hopes up that a cure will be found and the world will be saved

Yes, Emory University has treated them and they ALL lived. Other hospitals let the patients die... People who aren't in Atlanta, GA should freak the fuuck out!

I live in Australia where we don't have it so I don't know much, but I think u have nothing to worry about . A survey in Africa said that Ebola is in the 10th most deaths in Africa and it was nothing compared to all the other diseases Africa has. And there a way more murders happening recently in America than deaths from Ebola. i also think I've heard only 1 person has died from it in America. Hope this helped

One person in America died of Ebola. More people die of accidental trips and falls. Since people have been keeping it under control (or trying to) I think you might be safe.

No. You'll be fine. America is a fairly advanced and rich country, you will either not get it in the first place or be treated immediately and likely survive.

There is no vaccine for Ebola. Sorry to be morbid, but if you get Ebola, you are dead. Like the others here who have died from it.

Also, you're not likely to be infected any time soon. So stop panicking.

@DarkAngel1204 that is false. There is no vaccine, but it's like a flu, it passes if you're treated correctly and welly. Some people have died in africa beause they don't have the technology that we have here.
