    Hurrah! I’m so glad she got better. I can’t imagine what it’s like to contract this disease, considering how deadly it is. In recent news, apparently a vaccine has been developed for Ebola and it’s showing results! I’m so glad we have such talented and hard-working doctors in this world.

    I know what it is like to be reunited with a long lost pet, it must be a similar feeling. It is good to know that they are both in good health and pull though this ordeal.

    It is good to know that there seem to be some sense of calm as it relates to the Ebola outbreak. To have Persons recovering should in fact be the main goal of all administrations within a country and i am happy to see this news article.

    A few weeks ago just the appearance of the word Ebola and along comes the expectation of seeing and hearing the numbers of death and the names of some of the latest victims, it was all going down a downward slope.

    Thanks for giving us hope with this and showing the more positive things associated with the disease.

    This is such a hard and complicated situation… I would not want to be one who has to take all the responsabilities and decisions. On one side, you have all the population who is very near panicking, and on the other, you have everyone who is against mendatory quarantine. If you look at in one way, you can realise that it’s unfair to be “punished” because you went in a foreign country to help sick people, but if you look at it in another angle, can you really take the risk to brign this mortal illness to yet another country? Complicated situation indeed.
    p.s: That dog is so cute, I want one 🙁

    Happy to hear that there’s at least some good news instead of it all being bad.

    However, I’m still lost on one aspect of this article. If it stated how bad Ebola is spreading in West Africa and the rate that it kills at, how come it isn’t bad here? I keep hearing mixed things on this topic, one of them being that it’s actually killed 7,000 people hear. With different new sources saying different tales from it being only received from bodily fluids to it spreading like wildfire numbers and practically many people contracting it, it’s hard to know what to believe.

    From where I’m standing these are totally great news. It’s nice to see people recuperating from such a terrible disease.

    Ebola can be a frightening thing, but I find it interesting that more people die from common influenza each year than have died from Ebola, in like.. ever.

      Well that really is the major point that people miss. I really think that the ebola outbreak is nonsense. It’s flu season now the symptoms are the same as the beginning of the common cold. If they allow all of these people into the country with ebola and don’t care about their own families. I just think its something to create fear and make people go for shots; health care and so forth. It is true that more people die from influenza and there is nothing said about that, at all. This girl looks really healthy to me. If she had just been really sick with a life threatening disease that she would look a little out of it.

    So glad to hear he recovered fully. I went to Columbia University, and it was unsettling thinking about the virus being in the area, amongst all of my loved ones… It’s a big reality check for how so many in the affected countries must be feeling on a daily basis. Now we need this level of care over there.

    Its good that the doctor is okay and has been recuperating Hopefully Doctors in the US will announce that there is a “cure” for ebola and this terrible disease can become a concern of the past, we have the best technology and best doctors big faith ..

    This shows that early detection can result in a fast recovery, so quarantine measures for people from affected countries could save their lives. As the New York doctor had symptoms which he ignored for weeks, it could be the difference between life and death. One has to choose between sacrificing liberty for a a few weeks and death and the choice should be obvious.

    Its good that the doctor is okay and has been recuperating. The doctors were on the front lines knowing what the risk were. I mean the Ebola disease can only be obtained by other peoples saliva or other forms of bodily fluids. I think we would find a cure but it might be a while.

    Glad to see that this doctor is doing okay, and that she has been able to be reunited with her dog, unlike others who have had to have their dog killed when it was discovered that the owner had ebola.

    Hopefully Doctors in the US will announce that there is a “cure” for ebola and this terrible disease can become a concern of the past, like polio.Things seem to be on the right track for that to happen.

    Just recently (three weeks ago) I went in to have surgery in Reno and the Nurse was asking me Ebola questions. This disease seems to be creating a very big stir. I’m happy to hear that so far in the US we have only had one death and the rest are either recovering or cured.
