why did they use a black guy for a person who has been infected by ebola

The CDC is systematically concealing the fact that Ebola in the bloodstream is contagious as long as two and a half weeks before the first symptom

Lets look at the real world petri dish. It seems the transmissibility is high enough to have killed many thousands thus far.

Sam Owens says:

The general consensus in the media about ebola is wrong! wrong, wrong, wrong! I read the scientific literature on ebola and UNLIKE the flu, cold, cruse ship bugs, and HIV that can ONLY infect very specific cells in your body like the flu which only infects ciliated epithelial cells in your airways and nothing else…Ebola can infect EVERY cell in your body!! Every cell, every living cell except your bones can be infected by ebola. An infected person will have billions, with a B, billions of viruses in every drop of bodily fluids. Shaking a sweaty hand can infect your dermis (lower skin) with ebola which will then spread to the rest of your body leading to a cytokine storm and internal, external bleeding and death. No one is talking about this fact. Ebola has an R0 factor lager than the flu.
