    Of course it is. And I can't really understand why the US still clings to the archaic amateur-professional division which no longer exists anywhere else in the world.

    Yes, because of the specific way in which ebola is transmitted, healthcare workers are at risk, but the probability of innocent bystanders catching it is very small. After all, Thomas Duncan took an...

    The vomit comment was likely an exaggeration, but let's get a sense of proportion here. The number of cases so far, over a few months and several countries, has been less than 10 thousand. That's...
