    The CDC is the reason for the spread of ebola. you can’t trust people to tell you the truth. Perfect example the passenger flying to Dallas from Librea and the passenger flying from Dallas to Ceveland. Cancel all flights already hello what is wrong with you people. The CDC allows the sick to fly are you trying to kill us all. Even if a passenger does not have a fever at the time of travel doesn’t mean they don’t have it. IT TAKE 2 TO 21 DAYS TO SHOW SYMPTOMS.People could be fine one day and sick 2 days later.People will be upset about having flights cancel but oh well at least we will be safe. In 21 days we are now going see ebola victims in Ceveland thank you CDC for lack of common sense.
