PLAN B

While the CDC does not believe that there are new cases of Ebola in the United States, the assumption in the checklist is that it is only a matter of time before the virus hits home.
The nightmare scenario is that the outbreak may be mutating into an aerially transmissable variant.

Looks like the State Department has decided to protect their own. Might not be a bad time for us common folk to grab some N-95 filter masks and Tyvek suits from the local hardware store...
The huge bulk order of hazmat suits for Ebola has stoked concerns that the U.S. government expects the virus to continue to ravage countries in west Africa and may also be concerned about an outbreak inside the United States.
Be afraid.

In the meantime stay away from the unclean. Good policy anyway but especially now.

Well yeah the homeless, losers, anyone that looks unclean is likely to be at higher risk of infection. You know how the flu is spread by touching some contaminated surface and then touching your mouth or nose? Same idea with most infectious diseases. Decrease the risk by STAYING AWAY from losers.

yup... not really an issue here. i'm a "wash your hands every time you come home" kinda guy... and that means visits to the library or the local hardware store.

i do, however, take your point. the perennially indigent are a vector for all kinds of disease... from the sexual (hiv, aids) and mechanical (needles, pipes) to equally scary stuff like drug resistant tuberculosis.
