But, one thought came to me and freaks me out. Where are their toilet leading to? Honestly. If their infected waste just goes down the drain to mix with everyone else's toilet waste... you see what I mean.
It would not matter unless you were wandering around in the sewer directly below as the toilet was being flushed.

Eh, I dunno, seeing how these things are generally handled by authorities doesn't give me much hope that that would actually be the case. Everyone is too damn afraid for their own bottom line and to lose a few dollars to actually enforce anything drastic like this. Otherwise most flights from the affected areas would already be canceled, yet they aren't because airlines would be damned if they lost any money from this. I'm afraid same would apply to everything else. Sadly, prevention is not high on the list, money is.

Where is your source that Ebola is now spreading in the US. Also, did other people get infected from Sawyer (the people who were in the same flight as him)?
