7 people who briefly thought Doctor Who had Ebola

Read slowly, people.

LAST NIGHT, IT was announced that a New York doctor who had treated Ebola patients in Guinea had tested positive for the virus.

As you would expect, the headlines typically looked a little something like this:

doctorwho Gawker Gawker

Such headlines caused confusion, as demonstrated here.

Yes, several Doctor Who fans saw the words “doctor,” “who,” and “ebola” and briefly thought the worst.

1. Like this woman.

2. And this guy.

3. And this guy.

4. And this girl who was misinformed by her mother.

5. And this guy.

6. And this girl.

7. And this girl.

Some people knew better, though, and had faith in Peter Capaldi’s abilities to deal with the illness.

Yes, there are still people who don’t know what Ebola is >
