We probably have more than 60 days to contain the Ebola virus, contrary to what the United Nations has predicted, Dr. David L. Vastola tells Newsmax.

"There may be more than that really," Vastola, a board certified internal medicine and gastroenterology specialist, told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"The reality is shocking for most of us and the reality of this virus is even more shocking — within two months, many people can die," he explained.

"You really have to wonder how accurate they're counting these people — I don't even think they know how many people live there, let alone how many are dying," he said.

"They are in need of a lot of money and that's a good way to generate a lot of money coming into the area," he added.

However, he says that it is "an epidemic and now it's here."

Vastola says that "the reason why most of us, within the medical profession and also the lay population at large, are frightened" is because of "the lying [that] has been going on for the past couple of years" at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. "How much are they lying and covering up?"

He contends that "the fiasco at the airports with temperatures being taken is really a charade.... It's useless for a number of reasons."

"First of all, forehead temperatures is about the third least accurate in terms of taking temperatures," he explained.

"Secondly, it has to be done correctly — it has to be placed on the forehead and skin [and] pass across the forehead to the temporal artery to get a good measurement," he said.

In addition, "if that person has taken an Advil or Aleve, which will lower the temperature artificially, if they have thick skin and work outside, you'll get a false low temperature read because the temperature will not be communicated across the skin," he added.
