False Ebola Alarm In England

As terrifying as Ebola is, it’s relatively difficult to get infected. While idiots like Donald Trump do their worst to spread panic, the people on the front lines are doing their best to contain it.

Rebecca Younger and Andy Lines, Mirror Online:

Airport staff tonight told of their fears of an Ebola outbreak after a passenger from Sierra Leone collapsed and died as she got off a plane at Gatwick [Airport].

Workers said they were terrified the virus could spread globally through the busy international hub from the West African country which is in the grip of the deadly epidemic…

The plane was quarantined as ­officials desperately tried to trace everyone who had been in contact with the woman…

At around 11pm on Sunday, the Department of Health said that tests for the deadly Ebola virus on the woman who died at Gatwick had proved negative.

Meanwhile, an American doctor who contracted Ebola in Liberia has returned to the U.S. and is being treated in Atlanta. He should “suffer the consequences,” according to the dependably stupid Trump, for trying to help sick people.

Or how about this: We give this doctor the best available treatment for this horrible disease, and use this opportunity to study it. How does that sound, Dr. Trump?

Well, too bad.
