Last Week Tonight's John Oliver With Some Advice For New Yorkers Worried About Ebola

HBO's John Oliver had some advice for New Yorkers on the Ebola virus.

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver provided some much needed comic relief on the topic of Ebola and how our media has really screwed the pooch with their coverage on whether the citizens of New York actually have anything to worry about after the doctor from Doctors Without Borders tested positive for the disease earlier this week.

After having a bit of fun with the fact that it was inevitable that a nerdy white doctor might make his way to a bowling alley as a way to pass his time, Oliver shared some of NY television host Errol Lewis' comments about the disease.

OLIVER: Meanwhile, for the other 8 million people in this city, the advice is pretty obvious. Ebola is not airborne, so there's only one thing we all have to remember.

LEWIS: Now if you came across some strange mucus or feces or something out there on the subway, the street or anywhere else you know, don't eat it.

Oliver: That's good advice. That is solid advice. Don't eat mystery mucus in the street until this Ebola panic is over, at which point, feel free to resume your mucus consumption.
