    It's actually very serious. There is no cure and it's spreading faster than a mclaren.

    We should definitely be concerned. A patient recently died from the Ebola virus. My friends are saying "Oh, it's no big deal" but I believe that it's spreading.

    Bird flue, ebola etc. It's nature's nature to take care of overpopulation, there always will be viruses.
    It doesn't spread fast actually thanks to the healthcare organisations, especially not in the USA. People of very poor countries are in danger

    I don't think ebola has anything to do with overpopulation....

    I doubt anyone can say what is going to happen, but if we panic - no or later - things will certainly be even worse. Always the least useful option.

    Panic later. It actually can be cured... it's just that the success rate is not high. Or rather, there isn't enough data to know what the success rate would be in modern hospitals.

    One fear is that if the epidemic is allowed to continue in Africa, the virus could have time to evolve to a form that might be less lethal but that could persist in human populations for longer periods of time. (Previous rural outbreaks have been somewhat self-limiting. Everybody dies fast, outbreak over.) There is some speculation that this strain might already be different, because victims don't seem to bleed as much before they die.

    Although it's something completely different, it's interesting to read the paper in the October 3 issue of Science about the evolutionary history of HIV. Although SIV seems to have made the jump from monkeys to humans several times, it wasn't until it became endemic in Kinshasa, in the 1920's, that it evolved into a pandemic form.

    (Probably just coincidence that ebola virus was also first detected in Kinshasa. Probably.)

    On first impression, it does not seem to be anywhere near as contagious as other diseases in the past - such as the flu pandemic of around 1918 (millions died, and easily spread); the worldwide outbreaks of plague (wiped out half of some populations); or the mysterious (still unidentified) "sweating" disease of the 15th and 16th centuries in europe. It may become quite serious in big urban areas in western Africa - but seems to be controllable in northern economies with good public health systems.

    I would guess that even common malaria still kills many more times the number of people than ebola ever will.

    Probably will never be a major threat to countries with developed economies.

    What It Looks Like When There's an Ebola Scare on a Plane
    http://abc11.com/news/what-it-looks-like-when-theres-an-ebola-scare-on-a-plane/344213/

    An Ebola scare on a US Airways flight leaving Philadelphia prompted officials to meet the plane when it arrived in the Dominican Republic after a passenger reportedly said he had Ebola.

    With e-cigs becoming more popular, and marijuana becoming more legalized, it's only fair to have an "e-bowl" outbreak (electronic vaporizer bowl for weed).
