The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have effectively admitted that the Ebola virus is airborne, meaning that it can be spread from host to host through the air, not just through contact of bodily fluids, as health authorities previously claimed.
A new poster released by the CDC states, “Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another.”
This new information essentially means that you can contract the deadly Ebola virus the same way you catch the common flu – a very scary thought. Of course, the difference between the two illnesses is that while only a few people die from the flu each year, the mortality rate for those who become infected with Ebola is much higher; it is currently hovering around 70 percent. As the virus remains unconfined and the death toll rises steadily, more likely than not, we will see this percentage increase.

Meryl Nass, M.D., a board-certified internist and biological warfare epidemiologist, said what many of us have been thinking for some time:
CDC says it doesn’t travel farther than 3 feet. Well, at least CDC is starting to move the narrative. Maybe tomorrow it will be 5 feet. Then 10. Maybe next month they will tell us why all the victims’ possessions are being incinerated and apartments fumigated.
Just remember: historically, Ebola spread fast in healthcare facilities.
Nass also released a publication in 2009 which revealed that Ebola “pose[s] a high individual risk of aerosol-transmitted laboratory infections and life-threatening disease that is frequently fatal, for which there are no vaccines or treatments.” Still, the National Institutes of Health decided to spend your tax dollars studying why lesbians are fat instead of developing an Ebola vaccine. Round of applause for the feds.

Many skeptics believe the Ebola virus has been airborne for some time now, despite the fervent denial of health officials. Those same health officials may very well have only been disclosing half truths to the global community so as to keep international fears in controllable measure. It wouldn’t be the first time the government withheld information.
Thanks to the World Health Organization’s ill-prepared staff, the Ebola outbreak was not stopped in its tracks. Now, we are dealing with the effects of an unconfined, highly-contagious virus which has already ravaged West Africa. Without travel restrictions – thanks, Obama – it will likely have the same effect on America. The virus has had ample time to mutant, another destructive side effect of an unconfined outbreak. Scientists have already admitted that the strand of the virus they are encountering changes from host to host, meaning that it is constantly mutating. In all likelihood, it has been airborne for some time now.
Do you think Obama is regretting kissing those Ebola nurses right about now?
