NEW YORK (AP) - One New Yorker says he hadn’t heard about the Ebola case until he was riding the subway to work.

Chris Thompson said on the “L” train Friday that it’s “a scary thing.” But he adds that there are “a lot of germs in New York.”

A construction worker, T.J. DeMaso, expressed concern that he and his children could be endangered if there were a widespread outbreak. If that happened, he said he’d move out of the city. But experts stress that Ebola is not spread like a cold or flu.

Alicia Clavell was reading a newspaper story about the Ebola case on her way to her job as a school social worker.

She feels “they have it under control” but also hopes it’s “an isolated incident.”
