The Ebola is a deadly virus. The current outbreak seems to be out of control. There is a possibility for it to travel outside Africa.

Are you concerned about this outbreak reaching your shores?

I'm not worried about it yet, but here's hoping. I really hope a cure is found.
I am a bit worried because Ebola is such a potent virus. Outbreak is so easy: one person on a flight, and a whole flightload can be potentially contaminated. Anyhow, it remains to be seen how far-spread it becomes and when a cure is finally found. I do admire the selfless work the doctors do with the Ebola patients. They are true heroes.
At the moment, no, but I did raise an eyebrow when I heard one of the infected doctors was being taken back to the States.
I have to answer, I am concerned.
It is very much contagious, no vaccine is available for humans.
Time will tell....but it is looking very grim a cure can be found soon.

At this stage, no but I can see the potential for it to become a very real concern.
I am not particularly worried about it.
There are so many things around that can harm or kill us and this is just one more.

It is however a really nasty one and as with Aids, they will probably put research into it.
