Why are articles downplaying Ebola when it sounds easier to catch than AIDS?
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 13:14:24 +0000

I'm sure this is a case of "bad science writing" but in three articles this week, like this one I've seen attempts to downplay the threat by saying

But it's difficult to contract. The only way to catch Ebola is to have direct contact with the bodily fluids — vomit, sweat, blood, feces, urine or saliva — of someone who has Ebola and has begun showing symptoms.

Direct contact with Sweat? That sounds trivially easy to me. HIV is spread through blood-blood contact and that's had a fine time spreading in the US.

So why is Ebola so "hard to catch"? Is it that it's only infectious after symptoms show, so we figure we won't have infectious people on the street? That's delusional, considering US healthcare costs.

Or is it (as I'm assuming) that it's more complex than simply "contact with sweat"?

Not trying to fearmonger; trying to understand.
