Is the person next to you coughing up a storm? Has your roommate stayed in bed all day? Well, then they might have Ebola. At least, that is the joke.
And a joke it is. According to CNN reporters Saeed Ahmed and Dorrine Mendoza, “You can count the number of documented cases in America on two hands—and still have fingers to spare. … Eric Duncan is the sole fatality.”
They wrote, “While the threat of Ebola is very real in Africa, the paranoia it’s generated in the United States is unreal.”
