Plague(?) Diary, Entry 0008:
WE HAVE GONE
FIVE (< < < scratchout)
0 DAYS WITHOUT A NEW INFECTION

Another one. New York City. Ebola treatment doctor just returned from overseas. Went bowling yesterday. Slept with girlfriend who is now in quarantine.

Lovely.

And this after some idiot at the CDC said he was "cautiously optimistic after five days with no new infections."

Right.

The question mark in the title remains.

For now.

There is one small note of hope: this infection did not derive from Patient Zero in Dallas but is a new arrival, a doctor returning home; he saw the problem and jumped on it. We still appear to have contained the Dallas outbreak to Patients One and Two. We still have some reason to hope.

    "Ebola virus can go airborne in low temperatures, per USAMRIID."

    I suppose they only learned this because of the USARAF soldiers brought back to DC to begin their 21-day quarantine?

  2. Your source is intermediaried by Infowars, for whom there is no credibility, but the underlying studies, which come from US Government labs, support what you say. The only difference is that our present virus does not appear to be among them.
