    Wth???? Ebola starts with flu like symptoms. This is ridiculous. What were the symptoms? Diarrhea, vomiting, bleeding out of his orifices? Must be a migraine.

    Does this remind anyone of sending a patient home in Dallas that ended up coming back with Ebola? Why wouldn't they test for Ebola instead of just going by symtoms?

    And in my opinion the fact that the daughter does not have symptoms doesn't mean squat as we know the incubation period is 20 some days.

    If i was still in the medical field I would quarantine this individual and his daughter until the test came back negative.











    Passenger Paul Chard tweeted a photo of emergency responders on the plane.


    The possibility of a new case was knocked down later Saturday by the New Jersey Department of Health.
    In a statement, it said that University Hospital "in coordination with federal, state and local public health officials evaluated two individuals who arrived" Saturday afternoon.
    "The symptoms of one individual were found to be consistent with another, minor treatable condition unrelated to Ebola," the health department said. "The second individual, who was traveling with the patient, was asymptomatic."
    Vomiting?

    Only Ebola causes vomiting?

    Ever had too much to drink, eaten some peas that were re-frozen? Had flu?

    In suggest you wiki Vomiting.....

    it proves only that he had an upset stomach. If the medical team in pace looked at him and let him go, who the hell am I or anyone else to question?

    They're more concerned with hiding the identies of the undocumented and not offending people at this point.

    Did you feel that way about the idiot that sent the Liberian in Texas home with antibiotics only to have him come back in an ambulance with full blown Ebola? If you ignore the fact he may have contaminated someone else what about the fact that he is now in critical condition and may die? Time is of the essense in treating this virus and some idiot screwed up. Probably one of those worthless nurse practitioners.

    I say if he's exhibiting potental symptoms of the disease and there is precedence for someone testing positive from Liberia, you could at least test him and hold him until the test comes back negative.

    From my my microbiology class when I as studying to be an RN that's basic procedure 101.

    Isn't it always better to err on the side of safety and keep them isolated for the publics safety when it could be something like Ebola?

    That's what they said when they discovered AIDS. How did that work out for them?

    Until it becomes airborne, most people won't do much at all. If that happens, there will be panic and calls for the government to do something, which could be martial law. Think about what that means.

    Martial law comes to mind. Why else has the government recently been arming local police departments with military-type equipment? They've even stated its for riot control. What riots were they expecting?
