Because it’s a fucking virus. Those are airborne.
And that definitely counts public transport, as if I didn’t have enough reasons to avoid The Tube of Doom.
We’ve been telling you for awhile now that the government and healthcare providers were not being honest about how Ebola can spread. Over and over again, government officials and healthcare experts have insisted Ebola “can only be spread through direct contact.” Those same people have also insisted that infected people “are not contagious until they show symptoms. CDC now admits those claims were FALSE!
Why is it always from Africa?
All the deadliest diseases in the entire world, always them.
Casual contact is defined as a) being within approximately 3 feet (1 meter) or within the room or care area for a prolonged period of time (e.g., healthcare personnel, household members) while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment (i.e., droplet and contact precautions–see Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations); or b) having direct brief contact (e.g., shaking hands) with an EVD case while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment (i.e., droplet and contact precautions–see Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations). At this time, brief interactions, such as walking by a person or moving through a hospital, do not constitute casual contact.
In my academic experience, when it comes to liars, the good stuff is always in the footnotes.
In fact, if I sense someone is lying to me, it’s the first place I go. Man, do they sweat when they see me flip those pages.
