I’m going to wake up to dozens more responses to that Ebola post, full of damage control from people who honestly believe they’re the voice of reason because they’re parroting whatever they heard on the news- each one just as unaware as the last that they’re all just copies of the same insufferable husk of useless information.

I know that sounds 2edgy, but you’ve all fucking seen them.

Don’t mistake me for trying to incite a panic, but you’ll have to forgive my lack of faith in the medical community spouting “it could never happen here just wash your hands” when a major Dallas hospital couldn’t even follow basic CDC guidelines regarding this shit and sent Harry Hemorrhage home with a fucking salt tablet.

>Implying that he’s not in fucking isolation, something that is being done better  here than most people have struggle with doing in most African countries affected by the virus.

He flew back into the country on the 20th, started developing symptoms on the 24th, was first seen on the 26th, and wasn’t quarantined until the fucking 28th.

How many fucking people do you think he came into contact with after he started showing symptoms? How many people did they come into contact with?

But please, tell me more about how secure he is now.

"Ebola does not spread during the eight to 10-day average incubation period, which can last as short as two days or as long as 21 days. All air travelers leaving West Africa are screened for fevers both before and after the flight.

“We [health professionals] all had been planning to look at what our next steps are if there is a confirmed case,” Dallas County Health and Human Services director Zachary Thompson said to KTVT Monday night. “Again, we have to do the public health follow up to see what contacts, where this individual has gone since they arrived here in Dallas. There are a number of things that have to be looked at.”

Thompson reminded North Texans who may have come into contact with the patient that the disease, while contagious, is spread through direct contact with bodily fluids. “The key point is, if there’s been no transmission, blood, secretion, any type of bodily fluids by the infected person to someone else, then that [infection] risk is low to none.”

Just reading the first few paragraphs of a news article isn’t enough to cause a panic. 

You do realize that when you start showing symptoms, it’s no longer in the incubating period, right? You also realize that major urban centers are fucking filthy and ripe catalysts for massive outbreaks, especially if this dude was from a densely packed and/or low income part of town?

Moreover, the CDC sent instructions to funeral homes across the country on how to fucking dispose of the remains of Ebola patients.

Enough with the “keep calm and wash your hands” rhetoric.

I’m so happy I bought a gas mask.

Now I just need an NBC suit.

Are you…You’re joking right? Do you have a source?

He got back on the 20th, started showing symptoms on the 24th, sought care but was SENT HOME on the 26th, and wasn’t admitted until SUNDAY.

THIS MOTHER FUCKER WAS BACK IN THE STATES FOR 6 DAYS, GOT SENT HOME FROM THE DOCTOR AFTER HE WAS ALREADY SHOWING SYMPTOMS OF FUCKING EBOLA ON DAY 6, AND HAD AN ADDITIONAL TWO DAYS OF CONTACT WITH PEOPLE BEFORE THEY FUCKING QUARANTINED HIM IN A HOSPITAL

ARE YOU KIDDING ME

I had a dream a few nights ago.
