But Mr. Duncan’s case reveals a gap in the defenses: Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital failed to diagnose the disease when he first went there last Thursday night, even though his symptoms were suggestive of Ebola and he said he had recently arrived from Liberia. He returned to the apartment where he was staying, potentially infecting those around him as well as the ambulance crew that wound up rushing him back to the same hospital on Sunday......snip~ <<<<< Same NY times link. Actually both are NY times links.....Imagine that.
I Wonder if those Ambulance guys worked later and the next day and who they all came into contact with.....huh?
As far as the nurses go, look, it's just cause this is the new flashy disease, and they've been listening to the hype and are of course scared of it. Nurses are already trained on how to take care of patients with AIDS; if you take the precautions as normal then your fine. Let me say it this way; you cannot catch Ebola simply by being in the same room as someone with it.
As the greatest industry in Liberia and Sierra Leone is crime and terror----I hardly think corrupt Leftists like Obama are going to stop travel from there.

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.
