Media responds: 'Six reasons to panic' about Ebola in America

Ebola outbreak

(NaturalNews) A growing segment of the mainstream media is now engaging in cognitive dissonance regarding the Ebola crisis, warning the public not to get in a fear frenzy over the disease even though this same media is responsible for stirring up such panic in the first place. But as explained in thorough detail by The Weekly Standard, there are some valid reasons to panic about Ebola, despite what the media is saying.

Here are six of them:

1) Circulating Ebola strain has already mutated more than 100 times and could be airborne. A pundit on one of the major cable news networks recently told the public not to worry about Ebola -- just get a flu shot! Except that, one, the flu shot won't protect you from Ebola (or the flu for that matter), and, two, what health authorities think they know about the currently circulating Ebola strain is shortsighted and false.

As it turns out, the Ebola strain currently going around has already mutated more than 100 times. And with each mutation, its potential to become more virulent increases, as does the likelihood of it going airborne. Health authorities are trying to gloss over the fact that they really don't know how Ebola is spreading, and they are lying to the public in the process.

2) Ebola is spreading rapidly. Part of this denial schtick involves claiming that Ebola isn't easily spread, and that the average person has nothing to worry about. Once again, this popular talking point ignores the fact that the Ebola reproduction number in Africa is now 2.0, which means each infected person is infecting two other people, on average.

What this means is that Ebola is currently spreading much faster than any health infrastructure on the planet is capable of containing. The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that, by December 1, there will be 10,000 new cases of Ebola in West Africa per week.

3) Ebola fears could lead to drastic new security measures like those implemented after 9/11. The Weekly Standard presents this scenario as a positive thing, but as freedom-minded individuals already know -- when the government promises to improve your security, you can expect to lose some of your liberties in the process.

4) Health infrastructures are already failing at current Ebola rates. We keep hearing about how the nation is prepared to deal with a full-scale Ebola outbreak. "Bring it on!" seems to be the thinly veiled rallying cry of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others, who repeatedly insist that our nation has the medical infrastructure it needs to deal with Ebola.

But as we are already witnessing right now in the U.S. with the Dallas Ebola victim and his many potentially infected contacts, entire hospitals could be disrupted from the treatment of just one patient. And as we previously reported, the U.S. only has 19 total beds available in containment units equipped to treat Ebola patients.

5) Worst-case scenario predictions could become reality. If even one case of Ebola emerges in Central America, for example, which has easy access to the U.S., thousands or even millions of potentially infected refugees could come flocking into the U.S. Other worst-case scenario predictions like millions of people contracting Ebola in 2015, based on reproductive rate principals, are also possible.

6) Governments likely to play politics over Ebola. Already in the U.S., we've seen politics get in the way of sound decision-making concerning Ebola, including insistence by the Obama regime that no travel bans be implemented. If partisan disputes continue to interfere with making proper plans of action, the Ebola epidemic could quickly spiral out of control in ways depicted only in science fiction.
