    Correct. No clean water infrastructure, no hospital network to treat people, no clean running water, citizen ignorance to what to do. Now Uncle Sap needs to go fix it to the tune of how many millions of tax payer dollars and possible introduction of the illness to our troops.

    Sounds pretty rational if you ask me.

    Wow. The daughter of the women that lived there brought over Bleach NOT the CDC

    What's the deal ? Why can't Obama pick competent people to run his agencies?

    Every person involved with a possible Ebola patient should have training to protect themselves and the general public. If the nurses are worried, so should be the entire institution where they work and every person walking in.

    Thanks for the article
    This is all hyped up and pathetic. I'd bash fox news for over hyping it, but it's the media's job for reporting on the news and if Obama is going to make a big deal about it with a news conference then the blame stops there. Do you guys even know what Ebola is? You transmit the disease from prolonged exposure to bodily SECRETIONS, not just fluid. This isn't a case like the flu (which will kill 20,000 Americans in this country this year, as opposed to this "global epidemic" which has so far killed 936 people in total... all of which in Africa) where the disease can be carried in droplets in the air. Heck, did you know that even if you kissed a person with Ebola, you're still not going to catch it. The only reason Ebola is as scary as it is, is because it's in Africa where there is extreme poverty, poor sewage treatment (or people just poop, pee, and bathe in the same water source), and they still believe doctors look like this:



    If the disease started here in the use, you'd end up with probably ten or so cases a year and that's all. So how about we all relax and stop perpetuating the idea that this is something bigger than it will be. Hell Swine Flu was scarier than this... and killed more people (it's estimated that since 2009, over 500,000 people have died from that. For god's sake, Malaria has killed more people world wide than Ebola!

    Would you prefer a continued spread of the disease that further increases the risk to Americans?

    Africa has clean water infrastructure and fire to boil water. It has hospitals. It has clean running water. Its citizens are no more ignorant than the average American.

    I'm guessing you've never been there.

    And yes, they wash their hands.

    There you go again. Never mind many of these people were in place before Obama came on the scene.

    How about holding Perry accountable for telling us all is well in Texas and we've got this under control?

    Doctors in hazmat suits dying right and left? Hyperbole much? I don't think there are enough doctors over there to die right and left.

    Meanwhile, the fact that the US doesn't have universal health care coverage, but rather a system to discourage sick people from going to the doctor, is likely to come back an haunt us on this one. Europe isn't freaking out over this. We are. And for good reason. We have set up a system that encourage communicable diseases to spread, all due to conservative ideology about "free markets" versus socialism.
    Looks like the Euro Socialists are just as inept as the Obama adminstration and CDC. Belguim is still taking incoming flights from the craphole Ebola-plauged countries.

    That is how it starts.
    Heya Crue. Which doesn't count any secondary contacts he came in contact with.

    Then just what happened Dr Eco? You saying all reports of what I posted are false. Even though they are common knowledge to begin with.
