With Halloween fast approaching, stores in the US are busy stocking up on the latest scary costumes.
And popular this year – ‘Hazmat’ suits, respirators and gas masks.
Originally inspired by the hit series ‘Breaking Bad,’ if it looks like it fends off Ebola, it might be popular.
“I personally don’t mind,” said Monika Jachowicz, a resident in Arlington, Virginia.
“I think on Halloween people just want to have a good time. I don’t see any harm in that,” she said.
But in Dallas, where a second person was diagnosed as having the disease, people think it’s insensitive.
“I really don’t think people are thinking about that. I don’t think they’re thinking about the families and the victims,” said Mikhael Gilmore, a Texas Resident.
So far, more than 4,500 people have lost their lives to Ebola. On Tuesday, the World Health Organisation projected the pace of infections accelerating in west Africa – to as many as 10-thousand new cases a week within two months.
