A Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that most Americans are suffering from FEAR-BOLA and are either ignorant of science or completely anti-science. Exactly demonstrating why Maine nurse Kaci Hickox needs to fight against FEAR-BOLA!
Nearly 75 percent of Americans surveyed in a Reuters/Ipsos poll believe medics returning to the United States after treating people with Ebola should be quarantined, and 80 percent believe the healthcare workers’ movements should be controlled.
About a quarter of Americans polled seemed immune to FEAR-BOLA. A bizarre 1 in 6 polled seem entirely clueless about anything at all, and don’t support any type of monitoring, despite the facts that this is probably a good idea.
A quarter of poll respondents thought quarantines were unnecessary for healthcare workers, and about one in six respondents thought such workers should neither monitor their health themselves nor be actively monitored by officials.
Regardless of quarantine support, most Americans polled did seem to have the basic understanding that monitoring returning healthcare workers is important in fighting the spread of ebola.
Nearly 82 percent of respondents thought any travelers who have recently been in Guinea, Sierra Leone or Liberia should be actively monitored by officials, and 85 percent thought this should apply to returning medics.
