    Yes it is but it can backfire if folks find out they've been lied to.

    As someone that runs a business rasing live fish I can tell you stories about how incompetent APHIS is. I wouldn't allow them to babysit my dog.

    If you think this is a crisis, ask yourself one question: Have you gotten your flu shot this year?

    The flu kills 25,000+ in the USA every year.

    The young or old or people with compromised immune systems are the ones that usually wind up falling victim to the Flu.

    Ebola can amd will kill anyone. If it ever did manage to make it out into the general population it would overwhelm our Health Care system.

    As far as " relaxing " ?

    The Fed's and the local and State governments are going to down play this right up until it reaches your door step.

    Ebola just made it into a American city folks but its not a big deal....

    " Wash your hands everyone ".....

    This is a HUGE failure on the part of the Federal Government who for one should have banned all travel into the US from these afflicted areas.

    Ebola Could Mutate Into Airborne Virus: Top Researcher

    When will they come up with an ebola vaccine?
    Ebola could also evolve into a disease that forces you to dance non-stop until you pass out. Why aren't you preparing for this possibility?

    They've JUST quarantined the ambulance crew that transported this guy to the Hospital.

    I guess they've got things under control....

    I assume by your username that you are/were an airline pilot. If so, have you thought about the crew contamination aspects [cockpit and cabin crews] as they layover and transit the infected areas. Not to mention he fact that they spend many long hours in their high speed aluminum tubes with their passengers. Then they go on to fly hundreds more day after day. What if... fill in you own blank...


    By the way... If you are an airline pilot, have you seen this yet?

    CDC -- New Ebola Guidance for Airlines
    Updated September 19, 2014

    Interim Guidance about Ebola Infection for Airline Crews, Cleaning Personnel, and Cargo Personnel

    September 19, 2014

    Purpose: To give information to airlines on stopping ill travelers from boarding, managing and reporting onboard sick travelers, protecting crew and passengers from infection, and cleaning the plane and disinfecting contaminated areas.

    Key Points

    A U.S. Department of Transportation rule permits airlines to deny boarding to air travelers with serious contagious diseases that could spread during flight, including travelers with possible Ebola symptoms. This rule applies to all flights of U.S. airlines, and to direct flights (no change of planes) to or from the United States by foreign airlines.

    Cabin crew should follow routine infection control precautions for onboard sick travelers. If in-flight cleaning is needed, cabin crew should follow routine airline procedures using personal protective equipment available in the Universal Precautions Kit. If a traveler is confirmed to have had infectious Ebola on a flight, CDC will conduct an investigation to assess risk and inform passengers and crew of possible exposure.

    What about every passenger on the plane he rode over on, including connecting flights.

    The report I read here stated that he only developed symptoms several days after arriving in the US and so wouldn't have been infectious when travelling.

    Are you suggesting people should panic and not wash their hands? It's obviously not the be-all and end-all of the situation but in itself it's perfectly reasonable advice.

    Here's another reasonable solution: Require all persons traveling directly or indirectly from Ebola stricken countries to the United States to be quarantined until they can be cleared of carrying the Ebola virus. That's what I'm going to be talking to my Congressional representatives about since they are home on vacation from Congress.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
