Commerce family practitioner Dr. Rick Selvaggi says ebola virus is very virulent, but because it is not an airborne virus and because of the advanced health-care system in the U.S., it is very unlikely to spread widely here.  But Dr. Rick says it's not impossible that some strain of flu could become pandemic, as the terrible flu outbreak of 1918.
