Source l http://time.com/3525385/ebola­threat­us­cdc/ two­thirds of americans are concerned about the ebola outbreak, reacting to the situation such as in the article it states how “parents in mississippi pulled their children out of a middle school ….’ finding out that the principle had traveled to zambia but he did not show any symptoms . New york governor Andrew Cuomo said that it should be considered that people shouldn’t travel and ban people from travelling to west africa.

It is believed that Ebola isn’t a great threat to the united states because theres been only a certain amount of people that have gotten affected but either died or gotten better. The American people don’t have to make a big fuss about it because at the moment there was only about 6 people that were infected with ebola. Also ebola would take time to take over the population. In west africa it took time for almost thousand of people to get infected.



Over time there will be more people who get infected if there is not care. In March 2014 there were 13,241 people that were diseased in multiple countries and right now the re is no current increase in the ebola virus being here in the U.S. Here in the U.S there is treatment, healthcare, and such. So theres no big deal about ebola. Ebola in this case isn’t a big threat because it hasn’t increased.

Americans believe that they are endangered because they think that there will be a large outbreak in the United States, that family members are at risk when going to school with numerous numbers of students, that they’ll catch the deadly virus. Ebola is believed to only infect people that eat an infected animal or by the sick persons
body fluid in the article it states that unlike the flu it cannot be by standing next to someone who coughs,sneezes or breathes on you for this reason ebola is easily to contain based on the fact that its not easily transmitted. Unlike West Africa its spreading rapidly but this is only because they lack in “ adequate health care infrastructures ”and its hard for them to respond to the ebola outbreak. “officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

(CDC) say there’s virtually no chance it could spread very far in the United States.” so if the officials say that, then it might be true because the U.S have health care and a larger change to stop the virus from spreading.

The American people are worried based on the fact that countries such as Liberia and Sierra Leone are having an ebola outbreak which is very dramatic. In fact people also know that the virus is unstoppable which is threatening . In the source it states that maybe perhaps Americans are afraid due to the fact of horror movies based on outbreaks such as “2011′s Contagion “ makes them fear ebola which in reality isn’t as a big threat as they believe it is. This article by Tara Culp-Ressler was very interesting to read because i didn’t note or had a thought about the fact that many people get influenced by movies which make them fear things such as the ebola outbreak, which in fact isn’t a threat. Many people get influenced or jump into conclusions without having any knowledge about the virus .
