    This fearmongering over ebola is ridiculous. People need to HTFU and quit being irrationally afraid of everything.

    Well let me Ask you just how they did this disinfect this ambulance.....if they left the hospital and went out on another call. Then returned later to pick Duncan up a second time?

    See I have family member that worked as Firehouse Paramedic. So I kind of know their drill.

    Oh and all this BS about whining about Fear and being afraid.....Can you explain why the CDC and the WHO are calling this a Major epidemic?

    I think that if we are getting good information from the CDC, and assuming that it really isn't spread by means other than contact, and assuming that nurses really are practicing sound and normal universal precautions, then there shouldn't be a problem, and their complaints aren't legitimate. That being said, I have no great faith in the CDC, as it is essentially a governmental institution, and I don't trust them to put public safety over protecting their own asses.

    If it's Ebola we're talking about, 99% of the hospitals in this country will never see a case of Ebola. And it be very cost inefficient anyways to have every hospital in the US equipped to handle Ebola anyways. Best thing to do is handle Ebola outbreaks from a Regional perspective, with the regional health centers coordinating to get the rare cases of Ebola that pops up to the proper hospitals. Now if you're talking about a lack of masks and such, that's a broader issue though that isn't exclusive to the Ebola "crisis". In truth, we're not as ready for a real pandemic, and that's what we should be getting ready for, not Ebola...

    We know how they took extra precaution in cleaning up at the apartment where the guy got sick. Ever use a power washer? Splashes on everything in the general area, anyone could walk in all the water draining away and these guys weren't protected. Yet the White House assured us we had nothing to worry about.



    You blaming it on the Whitehouse? How about Texas. Since when does Perry do anything the Whitehouse wants anyway?

    Gotta love how the Indian chick is standing right next to the runoff.

    It may be treated with bleach though. I can add soap to my powerwasher.

    Man, this issue has brought out the crazies.
    We have about 100 million of you now. You take and you take and you take.

    I agree that the crazies are out. Between you and me, it is not me. The crazies are the socialist, the Marxists, the liberals, the fascists, the Progressives, and the statists.

    I believe every case should be shipped to Washington DC.

    The bolded is something that I have serious questions about. In other viral illnesses, they are contagious in the prodromal period, which is before there are really any distinct symptoms. (like that period when you think to yourself, "hmmmm. I wonder if I'm coming down with something. I just feel a little off". That would be my greatest concern.

    I think you just made my point.

    So should we spend more money on disease control or not in light of the Ebola outbreak? Guide us on the path of conservative health care policy.

    You keep harping on Texas.....what about Dulles Airport in Washington DC? Who were the screeners again? Who did they work for?
