    I’m tired of comments like “There’s no chance of it spreading”, “We have it contained”, “These are experienced and trained professionals”, and on and on. Does no one else find it disheartening that sooo many of the “trained and experienced” medical professionals are becoming infected? I believe we’ve all been misled. Agreeably, we’ve been told it’s out of control and spreading rapidly. However, there has to be some other mode of transmission that we are not being told.
    As I’ve said before, and will say again, with exception of smallpox all of the other viruses classified as a BSL 4 are hemorrhagic fevers! Ebola had never, ever made its way to western civilization soil until last week!
    We have taken many, many steps backward by allowing this to happen!
