Ebola Outbreak 2014
by: Cole G. Pd-2
As the symptoms of Ebola worsen in the man's body, he steps out of his quarantined house to go get some items from Walmart. Ever since the Ebola outbreak in the U.S., there have been people coming back from Ebola-ravaged areas and act like it's a normal day. But it's not, if you have Ebola there's a 50 to 90 percent chance of you dying. You can never be too safe.
We get that people are trying to help the people in Africa, but you aren't helping yourself. So why are we still going to Africa if we know that Ebola is common there. If you went to Africa and were helping Ebola-infected men, women, and children, would you please just check yourself if you have the disease. That would help!
What do people not get about 21 day quarantine? It's not that hard. If I was told to stay in my house and not go to work or school, I wouldn't hesitate to agree. To all the people who came back on a plane with an Ebola-infected person who just didn't care about the Ebola and ignored if they had a disease that could kill them and the others who they have greeted in the last week. Take this seriously! With a disease that has infected over 10,000 people and killed over 3,000. I would take as much safety precautions as possible.
With symptoms of Nausea and Vomiting, I would be pretty concerned. But also cough, stomach pain, red eyes, weight loss, rashes, chest pain, bruising, and even bleeding from your eyes, I would be freaking out. I wouldn't even come near another human being. So remember, the next time you go to Walmart to buy groceries, be careful who you talk to. And also remember that Help Can Be Harmful!
