Re: Ebola death toll hits 4,000


Yep, and a wee bit of perspective....and back in 1999, when flu deaths hit a peak, 36,000 died of the flu. But on AVERAGE the CDC estimates about more like 23,607 per year.
An epidemic is an epidemic....the news just makes some sound much worse.

Or to look at it without an epidemic...

Every 53 minutes on average, someone is killed in a drunk driving crash (9,878 people in total in 2011).
