    Read what the CDC really thinks about Airborne Ebola

    According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden, the Ebola virus might be airborne.
    “It’s the single greatest concern I’ve ever had in my 40-year public health career,” said Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. “I can’t imagine anything in my career- and this includes HIV- that would be more devastating to the world than a respiratory transmissible Ebola virus.”

    A study conducted in 2012 showed the Ebola virus was able to travel between pigs and monkeys that were in separate cages and never placed in direct contact.
    Dr. Gary Kobinger, from the National Microbiology Laboratory at the Public Health Agency of Canada, told BBC News nearly two years ago that he believed Ebola was spread by droplets suspended in the air.
    “What we suspect is happening is large droplets; they can stay in the air, but not long; they don’t go far,” he explained. “But they can be absorbed in the airway, and this is how the infection starts, and this is what we think, because we saw a lot of evidence in the lungs of the non-human primates that the virus got in that way.”

    Experts are increasingly expressing fears that the Ebola virus can spread through droplets suspended in the air. This would explain the unprecedented increase in the number of Ebola cases in 2014. You probably didn’t hear about it on the corporate news, but a little less than 2 months ago the CDC updated their criteria for Ebola transmission to include “being within 3 feet” or “in the same room” as someone infected with the virus.

    Obama and his flunky Tom Frieden said it wasn't possible. Are you going to believe your own eyes and brain or the government that cares about your and just wants to help?

    This is going to get ulgy. Remember the movie Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman? Even in a Hollywood movie they were smart enough to try to isolate the disease, to keep healthy people from getting infected. Scary that Hollywood writers are smarter than the people running the country and the CDC. Lord help us.

    When Ebola started making Australian news, the Friday night movie was outbreak... (The stand is a much freaker end of the world movie... I think its time to dust it off and watch it)

    Outbreak was an old favorite of mine. If I recall, Ebola was the disease of initial concern in that movie too. Wasn't it weaponized Ebola?

    It's been awhile since I've seen it so I could be mistaken.

    "Director Tom Frieden, the Ebola virus might be airborne."

    Oh. Dr. Insipid Squib must have read my posts or the army material - or just realized it has seeded enough here that he's ready to kick up a notch. Drizzlet.

    Something like it, a unique strain that the USA weponised (but originally carried by monkeys)

    Infected a village (how it was discovered) so the bombed it, then it came up again and they contained it, then a monkey came to the USA and spread the bug... But a magic hero finds the host and comes up with a cure.... And everyone lives happily ever after
