They Have Been Lying To You About How Easily Ebola Spreads

Ebola Virus Spreading - Public DomainHow did a health worker in Dallas wearing full protective gear catch Ebola if the virus “does not spread easily”?  Just last week, Barack Obama declared to the public that you cannot get Ebola “sitting next to someone on a bus”, and yet a nurse in protective gear that was taking extreme precautions to avoid being exposed to the disease has just caught it.  The head of the CDC says that there must have been a “breach in protocol” somewhere, because of course the CDC guidelines regarding the transmission of this virus could never be wrong.  Even with everything that has happened, our public officials are still insisting that Ebola is “difficult to catch”.  But could it be possible that they are wrong?  More than 200 health workers over in Africa that were treating Ebola patients in full protective gear have ended up contracting Ebola themselves.  More than 100 of them have died.  We were told that would never happen in the United States because we are so much more advanced than they are over in Africa.  But now it has happened.  Our very first Ebola case passed the virus to a health worker that was treating him.  If Ebola can be transmitted to health workers this easily, what chance is the general public going to have during a full-blown Ebola pandemic?
