Dr. Rand Paul has no idea what he is talking about.
Rand Paul tells me Ebola more transmitable than AIDS. "If someone has Ebola at a cocktail party, they're contagious and you can catch it."

If that were true, we would see many more infected people here in the U.S.
Thomas Eric Duncan, the Dallas man who died from Ebola, was in close proximity to over 100 people before his death and so far only two nurses who treated him without protective gear have been infected.
Duncan reportedly spent hours in a hospital waiting room in close proximity to dozens of other people and so far none of them have become ill. Duncan also spent time close to his family but none of them have become ill either. He also spent time in close proximity to other passengers on his flight into the US.
Unless your cocktail party is actually a secret orgy, I think you’re safe.
And while we’re on the subject of Rand son of Ron, he’d really like the first lady to know that he’s eating donuts. Because he’s a rebel like that.
