Ebola panic is spreading in the United States after death. Survival equipment is now being torn away from shelves in fear of further infection.
On Wednesday Ebola-infected Thomas Eric Duncan, admitted to the hospital in Dallas in the United States, died, becoming the first Ebola death on American soil. In the wake hysteria has really taken root among Americans, and equipment to tackle further infection is now being torn away from the shelves.
- People are reminded that it is likely that something that is on another continent also can come here during a single flight. Sooner or later, the equipment will be used by the entire population, David Scott, owner of "Life Secure" said to Huffington Post.
"Life Secure" offers a package with equipment to tackle epidemics. Normally Scott sells a few of these products during a week. Last week the number rose to well over a hundred, according to the newspaper.
This despite the fact that the government and experts have reassured the population that it is highly unlikely with further transmission of Ebola.
The sale of the equipment is being criticized by Arthur Reingold, from the Department of Epidemiology Centre at the University of California.
- I don't think this is an appropriate and reasonable way to respond, Reingold says.
The population has also stockpiled various books about knowledge of how to deal with the virus. It gets Reingold to react.
- I can not understand why anyone would spend money on that kind of thing based on fear of Ebola.
Some may disagree.
