    Lol! That's like expecting politicians to tell the truth as well. Whenever people have personal gain at stake, they will mold the truth to serve their own self interest, even when it means potentially giving plague to innocent people, as Duncan has illustrated.

    It sounds to me like Duncan was one of these people who think Ebola isn't a threat, their are many people on these boards who have voiced similar opinions. They think that because they heard some doctor on NPR say that there's nothing to worry about that it's business as usual. Well other so called experts said that Fukushima was nothing to worry about too.

    The latter. Most of these people are barely trained on these protocols and suits. They have little to no real life experience.

    She either made a mistake putting on the gear or taking it off.

    America has become purely reactionary and not proactive in dealing with potential problems. It's like when someone calls the police to say that someone is stalking them and the police tell them there's nothing they can do until their stalker hurts them. We must always protect the rights of the victimizers first and foremost.

    Yes. And it is not 'partisan.'

    Ebola has always been considered a Class 4 organism. That hasnt changed. But many healthcare workers are not trained in those protocols and have little to no 'actual' experience with the gear and suits. It's unlikely it's more contagious. Human error is much more likely.

    Our 'kids' are not in direct contact with the sick. They are there for security and construction and transport.

    99% of healthcare professionals in the US are not trained beyond classroom use of these protocols and gear/suits.

    Not really, not beyond classroom training. Except in those communities that may have run 'real life drills,' and even for those...they do it ONCE.

    The CDC has very adequate protocols and gear for class 4 hazards, and they dont sit on their hands assuming their current knowlege remains current.

    We are not prepareed. This just on my nightly local news:

    76% of US hospitals have not communicated any policies regarding potential Ebola patients

    85% of nurses have received no education regarding how to handle Ebola patients

    1/3 of US hospitals dont have sufficient supplies of eye protection and non-permeable gowns with which to treat Ebola patients

    Nor are there adequate negative pressure rooms.
