Ebola, What's the Big Deal?

Not trying to be insensitive but this is a question nobody seems to be asking.

How many, worldwide, have died from HIV/AIDS?

36 million worldwide from AIDS.gov. More than 1.1 million here in the USA.
And, it's preventable. Just don't trade bodily fluids with someone infected with the virus.

Sound familiar?

Well, we have another virus that IS nearing epidemic proportions right here in the USA – and nobody is talking about it – Enterovirus D68. Almost 700 people – mostly children – are being infected and SOME HAVE DIED! [More than the 1 eBola victim]

This is one of the flu victims who can be affected by a sneeze or a cough.

I'm not a doctor but this has me wondering. Remember all the big deal made about the Asian Flu? And the Bird Flu? So why not this one?

Of course, there comes this → Democrats Blame GOP For Ebola Pandemic @ http://hotair.com/archives/2014/10/1...conservatives/

And TimeOnline produced this → See How Ebola’s Spread Compares to Other Deadly Outbreaks @ http://time.com/3490415/ebola-sars-mers-marburg/ which only compares SARS and not the others mentioned above.
