The ebola death toll is up to 729 today, and there are over 1300 people infected at this point over 1300 people have been infected (including those who died). Despite the assurances that it’s difficult to contract and can’t be transmitted through coughing or sneezing, I think I’d avoid unnecessary air travel for the next few weeks.

And stay out of the water in Florida (where a flesh-eating bacteria is on the loose again).

And maybe stay out of Florida in general, since its also the only place in the US where the chikungunya virus was contracted from native mosquitos.

UPDATE: I guess the “flesh eating bacteria” isn’t really a flesh-eating bacteria, though it’s deadly regardless.

This current Ebola outbreak seems to be one of the largest in recent memory. These usually burn out quickly. I wonder if easy transportation or a mutation is more to blame.
