If you think so much about this you will damage your brain from unecesary chronic stress.

To live in fear means to never live at all. There's no sense in letting something affect how you live and what you do, we'll come across that bridge when ebola-chan is waving at us.

Not really but it is pretty scary when you really think about it. Hopefully it will die down though.

If you live in the first world, you're in no serious danger. The epidemic in West Africa is getting worse by the day, and will kill a whole lot more poor foreigners before it's over, and that's really bad, but it's not going to effect us. It's a bit self-centered to worry about like three people catching Ebola in your country more than tens of thousands dying of it in a foreign country, although that's a complaint I'd mainly like to level at the news media desperately trying to make it look like Ebola will get us all.

There's many ways to answer this, but to save time, I'll just say YES.

Not many Americans know just how Dog awful "Ebola" really is. As Someone speaking from a Medical standpoint, when I think about situations and such like this, it's just horrifying something like Ebola even being brought into a new Cultural climate here in North America. It's a savage, and brutal virus that has already shown a past ability to regenerate and become resistant to Our vaccines, Antibiotics and Bactericidals. Looking at it from an absolute worst type scenario, even "Yersinia Pestis"or, better known as to Us nowadays as the virus that brought Humanity living in the Middle Ages a scourge like One that Mankind had never known before...That which I'm speaking about of course, is "The Plague". Also known as the "Black Death". While of course they are both TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE viruses, Ebola's effects remind Me of something seen in Horror Movies. When it gets as bad as it will, the infected will be Bleeding and leaking Bodily fluids from each and every 'opening' We see on the Outside of Our Bodies. What's worse, is that ANY type of Medication that is known of having ANY efficacy whatsoever in treating the infected with Ebola MUST be given to the Patient via I.V. As You get worse, Your veins become, as is known to the Medical community, "wet" and quickly begin to collapse. So, You're not only Bleeding from Your exteriors, but INSIDE of You as well. Once You're behind a certain point in Prognosis, You begin to see that no matter HOW much Fluids You're given, Your Body will continue to exert signs and circumstances which look, and basically ARE identical to that of Someone suffering from severe Dehydration...And again, the Patient in the worst and final throes, We see that it doesn't go away. Then...You'll begin throwing up nothing but Blood and Bile, as well as having bowel movements which aren't anything but Blood and Water, and in worst cases, possibly even pieces and bits of the Stomach's lining and/or possible Gastrointestinal tissue. Patient Mortality tends to follow quickly when said Deceased reaches the stages which exhibit mannerisms like those mentioned above. Truly, a horrible way to Die.

Anyhow, I hope that this was at least something hopefully interesting, enlightening, or something along those lines. Much Love, Crunchyrollers!
