Be warned this may terrify you!
https://www.facebook.com/stevespell2 Protect Yourself! The CDC has issued new warnings concerning the Ebola Virus Outbreak for 2014 and travel precautions. This is the CDC in their EXACT WORDS! Everyone needs to share this important message about the virus. Ebola Virus is a very serious medical pandemic. We must all do our part to raise awareness before the health crisis becomes an epidemic. No one really want’s to find out if Obamacare is up to the task of fighting Ebola. Lets all do our part to ensure that this disease is not proliferated here in the United States. Here is the link to the CDC; http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/w…
The message from the Centers for Disease Control is clear. Do not travel and avoid this deadly disease virus at all cost. Here is the transcript of the CDC warning;
How do I protect myself against Ebola?
If you must travel to an area affected by the 2014 Ebola outbreak, protect yourself by doing the following:
Wash hands frequently or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid contact with blood and body fluids of any person, particularly someone who is sick.
Do not handle items that may have come in contact with an infected person’s blood or body fluids.
Do not touch the body of someone who has died from Ebola.
Do not touch bats and nonhuman primates or their blood and fluids and do not touch or eat raw meat prepared from these animals.
Avoid hospitals in West Africa where Ebola patients are being treated. The U.S. Embassy or consulate is often able to provide advice on medical facilities.
Seek medical care immediately if you develop fever (temperature of 101.5°F/ 38.6°C) and any of the other following symptoms: headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, or unexplained bruising or bleeding.
Limit your contact with other people until and when you go to the doctor. Do not travel anywhere else besides a healthcare facility.

CDC has issued a Warning, Level 3 travel notice for three countries. U.S. citizens should avoid all nonessential travel to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. CDC has issued an Alert, Level 2 travel notice for Nigeria. Travelers to Nigeria should take enhanced precautions to prevent Ebola. CDC has also issued an Alert, Level 2 travel notice for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
