Plague(?) Diary Entry 0002: Blaming It On Bush Meat

News today of two more possible E. cases, one in DC, one in Atlanta. The guy in Dallas came here on a hail-mary pass trying to get medical care and survive. Didn't consider for a second that he might kill millions.

I hope I have the guts to die rather than risk doing what he did.  Of course probably won't face that choice, but still...

This from the Mayo Clinic:
Preventing Ebola infection:
1) Avoid areas of known outbreaks.
2) Wash your hands frequently.
3) Avoid bush meat.
4) Avoid contact with infected people.
5) Follow infection-control procedures.

This is good to know. I've got the avoid-bush-meat part down pat.
