The U. S. has so far dealt with the Ebola crisis in typical U.S. fashion — sensationalism that led to blind panic and confusion. Numerous Ebola scares have popped up around the country as people take extra precautions to ensure the outbreak does not spread here.
To set the record straight, Ebola has been found in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea and due to the living conditions in those places and the lack of access to medical care, Ebola is a threat.
Here, however, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed a total of three cases of Ebola. This disease is not, in fact, going on a rampage through the U.S., and so I went around and asked Simmons students what they feared more than Ebola.
