Dr. Seema Yasmin on Ebole coverage: "we're trying to remind people to have perspective"

Dr. Seema Yasmin, a CDC disease detective turned medical writer for the Dallas Morning News, describes how cases of Ebola are being covered locally.

The "ground zero" of Ebola is not Dallas, she emphasized, it's West Africa. "And we have to remember that," Yasmin said. "That has to stay the focus because as long as the epidemic continues there, we will continue to see imported cases to Dallas, to Texas, and to other parts of the world."

Yasmin joined the newspaper earlier this year. Yasmin said people in positions like hers "have a collective responsibility to reassure the public, but reassure them responsibly. Give them accurate information so they can make up their own mind."

    I've been surfing online more than three hours these days, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It¡¦s pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    It's not ground zero yet. All that needs to happen is for it to find a reservoir in our own bats – or some other animal. They hosed Duncan's vomit off the concrete w/o it being treated. And we all know how animals are attracted to that sort of thing. These are the types of things that people aren't thinking about. To think it can't happen is irresponsible. This bug deserves a healthy respect for what it can do – and that includes the possibility of it finding a reservoir here.

    Dalles is first to have a walk-in Ebola patient. Not same as being sent a patient...... Let see what happens with next walk-in. Naturally everyone is ready, now........ Need to now set up a place for fever screening......CDC only talks to people who think like them......follow the spending and see the waste... So sad people are dying because of their waste and incompetence .. News media needs to investigate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
