Not contagious until symptoms are obvious and only carried by humans (which unlike birds are subject to border control)? Should be OK.

The symptoms resemble so many others that is the problem.Noro virus and food poisoning for example.

I saw four Ebolaians getting on a bus today.. They looked all smiley like they do, but one of them had a crooked leg and looked slightly skew whiff & poorly. I do wish we had tighter border controls, all this coming here just because we are friendly and great. The best thing for them is to get all quarantined.

Why worry.... far more important things to worry about in Lewes, like ISIS/ISIL, Wasters, Tory vs Labour vs Lib Dem vs UKIP, Fracking, Immigration, DFLs, St Annes fiasco, Town parking scheme etc...
Something wiped out the dinosaurs, so why shouldn't soemthing be on track to eradicate homo sapiens too? Call it evolution, divine retribution, or predestination - it doesn't matter which, if it's that virulent then it will beat our efforts to contain it and wipe us out, if it isn't then humans will keep it under control as we have most other nasties like bird flu, smallpox etc.
Why worry about something that might solve all the issues that seem to preoccupy Lewesians in one fell swoop ..... :-)
A good does of Ebola would certainly cut down the amount of utter garbage posted on here ;-)

An ebola epidemic would never happen in this country. There could be a few cases but they would be quickly isolated and it wouldn't spread. As mentioned above its only contagious once symptoms are obvious and even then it is not airbourne - i.e you actually have to exchange a bodily fluid e.g. sweat, with someone who has it.
