Hyperbola: A disease rampant among those who discuss Ebola with little or no scientific knowledge and thereby are prone to making outrageous, stupid and simplistic suggestions on how to deal with the complex issues surrounding epidemiology and biology.

Symptoms include keeping children home from school because someone three towns away might POSSIBLY been in the same country as a confirmed case, amnesia for certain public officials who voted to drastically cut medical research and development budgets and now need to cover their ass, and/or being a commentator on Fox News.
The CDC just announced that it has quarantined Congress due to an outbreak of Hyperbola. Hundreds of cases have been reported as members make more and more outrageous suggestions to control a disease about which they know nothing.
