Could Ebola come to the UK?Watch
probably is already here.
But it doesn't seem to be killing anyone though despite spreading eveywhere. perhaps it's a harmless variant of Ebola.
How can Sky News know that it will be coming to the UK in 3 weeks? Did Mr Ebola phoned them and told that he's booking a visit to UK?

It could, but I don't believe it would spread very far/quickly. We're a much more developed country and we'd be expecting it and have some idea of how to contain it.
It won't spread widely in the UK and we are well prepared to treat it. It's not something to worry about.
It could and it probably will - although as has been said, we will be able to treat and contain it far better than poverty stricken countries like Sierra Leone.

It could do, since symptoms can take a while to show. Many people can have the disease and not realise it for a week or two. I doubt it'll be much to worry about since its beatable with good treatment (which we have in the UK, unlike poverty stricken areas in West Africa hence why it's caused so many fatalities there).

A recent study based on air traffic patterns predicted that the UK would see a case in the next month at a 50% or so chance if traffic patterns stay the same. The likelihood is due to Heathrow's position as an International travel hub.
Why? Checks like this don't do anything. The guy who turned up in the US went through an airport and would not have triggered any scans as the disease had not developed yet. A better idea would be to provide better vigilance in hospitals so that cases are not missed as they were in the US or spread by inappropriately equipped and perhaps trained staff as in Spain.
Buttons on lifts, pelican crossings, atm's, handrail on stars etc.
A few sensible precautions shouldnt turn yourlife upside down.
Thank God its not air born.
Whats the odds on that?
