Hoax - U2's Bono has Likely Contracted the Ebola Virus

The article: "U2's Bono has Likely contracted the Ebola Virus," published on the satirical or fake-news website "organgrindermagazine.weebly.com" is NOT true.

The fake news about his Ebola-like symptoms are spreading on social networking websites and the rest of the internet like wildfire.

The Hoax: U2's Bono has Likely contracted the Ebola Virus

Bono -  Paul David Hewson

U2 singer, activist and humanitarian has reported that he is exhibiting early symptoms of ebola and has most likely contracted the virus while caring for a dying Liberian man.

Bono, birthname Paul David Hewson and other volunteer health-care workers wore protective gear, including gowns, gloves, masks and face shields — and sometimes full-body suits — when caring for Kmore Sanjij this week. This, naturally launched a review of procedures for treating infected patients, while the World Health Organization called the outbreak "the most severe, acute health emergency seen in modern times." Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of Picture the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said at a press conference "The only fortunate thing here is that Mr. Hewson's involvement will bring the epidemic the international attention that it deserves."

The image of Bono in the post was taken in 2011, while he was recovering in hospital, after he underwent surgery to repair his injured back.
