Ebola? Not even a chance
Despite very little chance of catching it, and few people actually believing they could catch it, the fear of Ebola in the US has been gaining traction in the last few months.
You are more likely to die from smoking, a car accident, a gun shot, being poisoned and even falling off a ladder. Although all these things are more likely to happen to you than catching Ebola, it hasn’t stopped people from believing the worst will happen.
Many are pointing to the media as the cause of the issue. Some believe they are blowing the problem is the US out of proportion. Others believe journalists are sensationalizing the issue to bring in more views and clicks.
The students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln predominantly believe the media is making the whole situation worse and that their chances of getting Ebola is slim to none.
