YOUR SAY: Assurances on Ebola threat not convincing
NO NEED to worry? Well, that's what Queensland Health tried to say when they burst into the television news program a few days ago. And to catch Ebola you had to get bodily fluids from an infected patient.
Now there's news of the infected nurse who took a commercial flight in the US while showing symptoms of Ebola.
Qld Health told me Ebola is caught by transfer of a bodily fluid. Now there's a nightmare scenario in the US; authorities are frantically trying to track down all 132 passengers who were on that plane.
Research shows that up to12% of Ebola carriers show no symptoms for up to 21 days. So there I am; Qld Health is keeping me safe and healthy? I think I need to be scared. To be safe, quarantine West Africa. Too late, Ebola has been let loose (well, that's how I see it) in the US, Spain and Cairns by taking carriers to those places.
