ebola and then cheaper cola?

Just when we had moved away from a Northern district into a Southern district of Berlin, we heard that an Ebola patient had been found in a place up North that was very close to where we had lived. In the end this turned out to be a hoax. But we couldn’t hold back laughing at the idea that tourists would stay away from this area «très chic» – that we hadn’t really like for that reason – because it would be contaminated and that therefore the prices of cola and beer might decrease.
