These are the cops leaving the NYC doc who tested POSITIVE for Ebola (after riding the subway ?? No seriously)
They are disposing their gloves into the trash.
Ebola virus LIVES and can be transmitted not only from blood and fecal matter, but MUCUS AND SALIVA.
Tulane research 2007
There is NO REASON to fear Ebola itself in a nation like the USA. There are abundant and manifest reasons to fear ignorance, incompetence, and the unpreparedness which can itself CAUSE an outbreak.
These police officers are NOT at fault. The CDC, the NYC Health dept, and police admin who FAILED TO TRAIN AND ALERT these officers MONTHS AGO are at fault. The event in this picture is a PREDICTABLE EVENT
Disasters occur almost ALWAYS thru a series of events EACH of which is extremely unlikely individually, which occur serially.
Just ask any NTSB investigator
