    That's why we restrict travel between Africa and The United States.

    Won't work, as all the experts say. Infectious viruses simply have too many indirect pathways into the country in the modern globalized world. We'd have to build a wall around the US and let nobody in or out to avoid that. But thankfully we don't have to. We just have to rationally deal with incidences of infection as they arise.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't have heightened scrutiny at Customs. I'm just saying we have to assume incidences will arise. And the facts show that's that case. It's already happened, and will surely happen again.

    It happened, because a guy caught a flight from Liberia, to The United States. Obviously, it won't be 100%. The thing that is 100%, guaranteed, is doing nothing.

    This time, however, the stakes are rather high and I expect science, reason and good policies win out, perhaps ultimately leading to the restoration of the funding the GOP stole form the CDC (plus the closing of two CDC research labs), and a reinvigoration of the argument for universal single payer health care.

    And maybe at long last we'll raise taxes on millionaires to pay for this.

    Obama was a fool for sending thousands of our troops there to build infratructure that the lazy and corrupt leaders shold have been doing for the last 50 years themselves. Those 3 to 4 thousand troops could be used to help protect and seal off our Southern border.

    It is the role of the State Deparment to ban travel from infected areas, not the CDC. Let the UN health experts, or better yet, the health experts from the African Union fix the Ebola problem in W. Africa.

    Well sort of.....but not really. Maybe you could talk to the NY Times about not doing contract work for Breitbart. Or for trying to trick you. Just sayin.

    Simple matter of fact Lady P. .....he wasn't alone. But those are what the CDC terms secondary contacts. Plus now they are saying the Numbers were Less from the original count.

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - Nurses, the frontline care providers in U.S. hospitals, say they are untrained and unprepared to handle patients arriving in their hospital emergency departments infected with Ebola. Many say they have gone to hospital managers, seeking training on how to best care for patients and protect themselves and their families from contracting the deadly disease, which has so far killed at least 3,338 people in the deadliest outbreak on record. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has repeatedly said that U.S. hospitals are prepared to handle such patients. Many infectious disease experts agree with that assessment.

    "The Texas case is a perfect example," said Micker Samios, a triage nurse in the emergency department at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, the largest hospital in the nation's capital. "In addition to not being prepared, there was a flaw in diagnostics as well as communication," Samios said. Nurses argue that inadequate preparation could increase the chances of spreading Ebola if hospital staff fail to recognize a patient coming through their doors, or if personnel are not informed about how to properly protect themselves. "When an Ebola patient is admitted or goes to the intensive care unit, those nurses, those tech service associates are not trained," she said. "The X-ray tech who comes into the room to do the portable chest X-ray is not trained. The transporter who pushes the stretcher is not trained." If an Ebola patient becomes sick while being transported, "How do you clean the elevator?" A survey by National Nurses United of some 400 nurses in more than 200 hospitals in 25 states found that more than half (60 percent) said their hospital is not prepared to handle patients with Ebola, and more than 80 percent said their hospital has not communicated to them any policy regarding potential admission of patients infected by Ebola. Another 30 percent said their hospital has insufficient supplies of eye protection and fluid-resistant gowns.....snip~

    Ugh, ebola won't spread, it won't become airborne, and unless people here in the extremely civilized and well-infrastructured United States:

    #1 barf on you

    #2 piss on you

    #3 crap on you

    #4 spit in your face

    #5 spit in your drinks (or crap or piss)

    #6 bleed all over you

    you have no need to worry...

    He had to transfer flights remember. He went straight home.....or so they say. He got sick and was taken to the ER. They released him back home. According to those in Liberia.....he was seen carrying a woman who had died from the disease. They stated he should not have been allowed on a plane.

    Breitbart News had an article that reported his fellow co-workers told the man knew he had Ebola when he boarded the plane, that he was fleeing to the U.S. for treatment.

    Its already spread and is still spreading......like I mentioned before. I am not worried.....nor do I fear such things. To be aware, is to be alive.

    You also forgot

    1. Sneeze in your direction.
    2. Cough in your direction.
    3. Swipe or rub up against you while they are sweating.
    4. leave fluids on objects they have touched.
    5. Get into a Physical altercation with you
