I couldnt care less.
The world is over populated. Mother nature takes care of it. Its just the way it is.
If its not Aids, its Ebola. If its not Ebola, something else will come up.

Whatever it is, before long, something will happen that will cut our numbers in half.

Some have done well but others have jumped on anything. We had 'Ebola in the Courthouse' .....some stupid inmate decided to cause trouble saying he was on THE PLANE. The court was shut down, everyone went nuts...then they found out he not only was not on THE PLANE, he wasn't even on a plane. The story was about in inmate that used the Ebola scare to cause trouble but the paper made it sound like someone with Ebola was in the courthouse.

Poorly thought-out question. The possible answers aren't entirely mutually exclusive - someone might want to answer 'Too much coverage, not informative enough and sensationalised' for example.
Personally I think the coverage in the UK is just right.

I think the news on the national level is just about right, my local is giving way to much attention to the nurse that refuses to follow quarantine. She has gotten more than her 15 minutes of fame.

no 1. any body that has been to those places of infection needs to be quarentined for 30 days before they can come in the us. no 2. the news needs to tell the truth no 3. the government needs to tell the truth no 4. common sense to all the idiots that think they can control mother nature.

I agree the should be a mandatory quarentine. Look what happened after they released the AIDS patients (after the civil rights groups got onto the Gov't about violating their personal rights) If the release them too early it will spread as fast as Aids did. Protect all the people.

No 1: You just proved you're an idiot because you didn't even know how to spell QUARANTINE. No 2.: You obviously have zero education in medicine or Infectious disease control, so why would anyone even listen to you.

Surely you could class America as a 'place of infection', if there has been a case there? How about people who are coming from civilised areas of Africa who are visiting your country for a week, would you want them in quarantine for a month? Would you like to pay their wages when they lose their job because they have to take so much time off for a one week visit to the US?

So you believe the propaganda? Ebola isn't a huge threat to life in the US or any other healthy, wealthy nation. A flu epidemic kills millions, whereas Ebola rarely kills more than a few hundred in each outbreak. Granted this is the worst Ebola outbreak in modern history, but we're still only talking about a few thousands death.

In 1918 40 MILLION people died from Spanish Flu & as recently as 2009 203,000 people died from H1N1 flu.

So this Ebola media hype is more likely about raising awareness of this minor virus to ensure we support the big pharmas making BILLIONS of dollars from pointless vaccines instead of sending real aid which would eliminate the threat of Ebola by making the affected areas clean & healthy.

It's just getting to be too much coverage. I know it's good of the media to inform people about it, but it does get tiring of hearing about it bout everyday now. To be honest, I wanna hear other news besides the Ebola.

I feel the media coverage is just fine. Not too much so that people will be scared always (like Swine Flu/H1N1) nor is it too less for people to stay unaware.

Too bad our president doesn't care enough about the actual legal citizens of america, to stop all incoming flights and travelers that are connected to coming in from africa, and also close the freaking borders from the disease infested illegals that are still pouring in.

to cut traffic to prevent something from traveling from here is impossible unless you cut complete entry to the us. it would be just easy just to hit another country and hop a ride here. but then if we cut entry to everyone that will stop trade and sufficate our country

I feel theres too much input from too many people. And politics are blowing it out for no reason but to cause a panic and gather votes. Making it easy to Ignore real news and threats. odds of us contracting it are slim. and in case there is a chance you contracted it. the only consultant you need is trained medical personal. and most the people who will have contracted it would be the medical staff that has been around it donating there time. and have the skill set to monitor and diagnose there selfs. even the medical people say its hard to catch it. untill the person starts showing symptoms. i believe that it should be up to medical staff in these areas to announce there imput on subject. when you flood the airwaves with bs like i have been seeing it blinds us to the real issues in our nation.

I'm very concerned this topic, but I think our media is handling coverage of Ebola poorly. People has been panicked, blame on government/CDC or each other. We need to focus on the cure, study and educate ourselves. Blaming each other isn't going to help at all, it just get worse.

It's a small planet, but there is so much inequality and difference around the world. In the UK, someone with Ebola would be treated quickly and efficiently, regardless of the cost. We're lucky. In Africa thousands can die and no one gives a damn.

Yeah, because after all Ebola hasn't been happening for 40 years, and nothing much has been said about it before. It is too sensationalised, just because it has hit America doesn't mean it's only just arrived on planet earth and only now needs eradicating.
