in a crisis like this one, rick perry is definitely the "decider" you want on the job...,

dailymail | Texas governor Rick Perry reveals children from FOUR different schools have been exposed and 18 Americans could be infected 

Five students attended four different Dallas schools this week after possibly being in close contact with the Ebola patient over the weekend 

The Ebola patient was named today as Thomas Eric Duncan, who had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit family

Mr Duncan, a Liberian national, quarantined at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday in a 'serious but stable condition

The children who came in contact with Mr Duncan are showing no symptoms and are now being monitored at home

The schools are on high alert with additional health and custodial staff as an added precaution Other children were taken out of one Dallas school by concerned parents

Mr Duncan arrived in U.S. on September 20 - after flying from Liberia via Brussels in Belgium - but did not develop symptoms until September 24

He attended Texas Health Presbyterian on September 26 - but was dismissed with antibiotics and 'not asked details about his travel history'

Mr Duncan may have contracted Ebola while helping carrying his landlord's seriously ill daughter to hospital in Liberia. She died the next day

I remember reading Plague Time a little long time ago and the doctor said viruses adapt to their environment. If a virus has an abundance of hosts, it'll adjust itself to replicate and kill faster. If the hosts aren't there, the virus will slow down. It might be easier to catch right now because the affected areas are densely populated with a weak infrastructure. It may have been bodily fluids in the '90s. It could've evolved since then.

Michael Savage (Savage Nation talker) has nick-named POTUS as "Obola" for his innefective response to the situation.
Savage has a PhD in Epidemiology.....

1. Ebola is a GMO (and an old one at that)
2. At its current exponential rate of propagation I expect it's changing very rapidly
3. Our health systems are NOT prepared to deal with this

I agree with the analysis wholeheartedly, but what evidence do you have that it's GMO? Contact me back-channel if you need.

So much conflicting information.

[The Ebola virus can survive for several days outside the body, including on the skin of an infected person, and it's common practice for mourners to touch the body of the deceased. They only then need to touch their mouth to become infected.

Other ways people can catch Ebola are:

touching the soiled clothing of an infected person, then touching their mouth]

Look at the history of the Marburg virus, filoviridae, and on to the Reston virus. You only need look at where it came from and where it went to in order to deduce its origins as an extensively studied and progressively engineered organism.
