When the Ebola "crisis" was at it's peak, i called it as overhyped and an example of very good scare tactic marketing.
On a marketing/business basis you have to give credit to the Ebola and BLM crowds. Their marketing and ROI have been superb and their outsized influence is quite incredible. Somewhere Saul Alinsky is smiling.

I don't get all the fear mongering about Ebola. I think it's been wildly overhyped.
3,000 cases in Africa is awful but does not equal a worldwide pandemic.
