Headlines and conversations about Ebola aka Hemorrhagic Fever are scary, and increasingly often.
Rumor-mongers are not improving matters. I suggest that you take their comments with skepticism.
Here are four sensible ways to cope with your concerns about Ebola/Hemorrhagic Fever:
- Educate yourself with facts about the Ebola scare, via the World Health Organization Ebola Fact Sheet.
- Read the Centers for Disease Control (though some people wonder if Ebola is under any sort of control) fact sheet at Ebola Virus Disease/Hemorrhagic Fever Updates.
- Ask your trusted medical professionals about sensible ways to protect yourself and loved ones, and how to behave overall during this frightening time.
- Bolster your efforts with prayers and decent behavior. They can keep you calm. Calmness can help you overall.
UPDATE: See WHO's Risk Assessment for Ebola and Arutz 7's "Problematic Questions (second half of the article)".
Epidemiologist Dr David Dausey declares, in the Washington Post, "Stop the Flights Now."
