  1. “…about 1 in 10 who contract the disease die from it…” There is absolutely NOTHING that supports this from the CDC or WHO. I looked up your link on the CDC website and there is nothing remotely close to these numbers! WHO says with this outbreak which is currently around 14,000 cases, there have been 5 deaths. That’s less than 1% – in fact closer to 0.0036%.

    You misstatement of facts regarding the death rate should cause alarm for anyone relying on you for any information. Please correct your article!
