Now we have two secondary infections caused by the Nigerian Thomas Eric Duncan, the man that brought the disease to us. We are told there will be more, since almost 75 nurses and aides were exposed to this despicable cretin who lied about having been exposed to an Ebola victim.
He carried his dying sister to the hospital twice in Nigeria, and lied about it when questioned at the airport.
OK, so he is/was a liar. Many more will lie to gain entry to America and its vastly superior health system.
Is this now an epidemic?
When the rate of secondary infection from any disease is less than one, the disease will die out. If the rate of secondary infection is more than one, it is then considered an epidemic.
With this new confirmed case of Ebola, the rate of secondary infection from Duncan is now more than one.
Figure it out for yourself.
Will it become a pandemic? That's the real question here.
But don't worry, the CDC says they have it all under control.
