Does the ebola situation frighten you?
Does the ebola situation frighten you?

Chris Langridge, works in Hemel Hempstead town centre, lives in Adeyfield:

Not at all. I trust the health organisations around the world to effectively contain all of the outbreaks of ebola.

Susan Drake, Warners End:

Not yet,but will be if anyone catches it from someone else over here. I feel sorry for the people working at the airports in this country – they could be the first to get it.

Owain bury, Berkhamsted:

I’m not too worried, no, because I believe we have the best care and medical staff in the world here in the UK, treating the brave man who has caught the virus.

Peter Johnson, Gadebridge:

A friend of ours goes to Liberia every now and then. Rather he didn’t pop round for the time being – well, at least for a year or two , or maybe longer: until there is a cure for ebola!

Tom Lainton, old town:

I am not worried. It is a serious situation, but not anything for us to be concerned about at the moment. If you are going to an Ebola hot spot, be concerned, if you live in Hemel, don’t be!
