    UNANSWERED.

    Stopping flights won't be 100%, but 90% is a Big improvement and will SLOW/CONTAIN the spread in good degree.
    Your DISINGENUOUS answer doesn't even disagree it could slow the spread dramatically, just BSes up technical objections.

    And again, what's the downside? Ten/Twenty thousand people loose their 'privilege' of International travel for a year?

    Indeed, Straight answers are impossible from your crowd because you have NO logical point, just kneejerk PC.
    I know and I love how people just gloss this over and say, 'oh just dont let them on the planes there.'

    It means stopping people coming in from any country. And depending on 100% accurate screening in those countries for the disease/early symptoms/fever. We cant even do that here.

    The economic implications of this are very damaging. As are the civil rights issues for Americans trying to return.

    National Survey of Nurses Shows Heightened Ebola Concerns

    Three out of four nurses say their hospital hasn't provided sufficient education for them on Ebola, according to a survey by the largest professional association of registered nurses in the United States. National Nurses United has been conducting an online survey of health care workers across the U.S. as the Ebola outbreak has widened globally. After a Texas nurse who cared for the first patient diagnosed with the Ebola in the U.S. tested positive for the virus Sunday, the group released its latest survey findings.

    Out of more than 1,900 nurses in 46 states and Washington D.C. who responded, 76 percent said their hospital still hadn't communicated to them an official policy on admitting potential patients with Ebola. And a whopping 85 percent said their hospital hadn't provided educational training sessions on Ebola in which nurses could interact and ask questions. The survey also found that 37 percent of nurses felt their hospital had insufficient supplies for containing the deadly virus, including face shields and goggles or fluid-resistant gowns.

    If it enters your bloodstream. And not your mouth I dont believe because stomach acid kills most things except enterics.

    So you have to have a cut on your hand or touch your eyeball or something like that. So it is possible but not that likely.

    CDC: Protocol breach in treating Ebola patient.....

    Top federal health officials said Sunday that the Ebola diagnosis in a health care worker who treated Thomas Eric Duncan at a Texas hospital clearly indicates a breach in safety protocol. But the unidentified worker has been unable to pinpoint where that breach might have occurred, according to Dr. Tom Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    He said the CDC has recommended that the hospital where the worker is being treated and where Duncan died Wednesday should keep "to an absolute minimum" those who care for Ebola patients and should perform only those procedures that are essential to a patient's treatment. He cautioned that additional health care workers could develop Ebola even as he expressed confidence that the "chain of Ebola" could be broken. He said that the CDC, as part of its investigation on how the worker became infected, would look at dialysis and intubation, procedures with the potential for spreading infectious material, as well as the removal of protective gear. Removing it incorrectly can lead to a contamination, he said. Earlier, on CBS' "Face the Nation," Frieden said the worker was doing self-monitoring. "Immediately when they developed symptoms, they isolated themselves, they were promptly isolated at the hospital so that any further spread from that individual was stopped," he said.....snip~

    How many believe this guy from the CDC?
    If you break down what he is saying its something like "we have no idea what she did wrong, but it had to be something"

    Actually, he's back tracked on that!

    He stressed during a noon briefing that whatever “breach in protocol” occurred was not necessarily because of an error by the health care worker or the hospital.

    So what breach is left? If the hospital and nurse error isn't "necessarily" the breach then what the hell is left.

    Well we have reports from Nurses saying they aren't prepared. Then reports that hospitals aren't. Then this guy Maki stated something different.




    However, only large hospitals such as those affiliated with major universities truly have the equipment and manpower to deal with Ebola correctly, Maki said.

    Health care workers treating Ebola patients are among the most vulnerable, even if wearing protective gear. Nurses at many hospitals "are alarmed at the inadequate preparation they see," says a statement from Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of the union National Nurses United.....snip~

    The identity of the Dallas health care worker who contracted Ebola after treating a patient who later died of the virus has been confirmed. The family of 26-year-old Nina Pham, a nurse at Dallas' Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. The family also confirmed the news to USA Today.

    She graduated from her nursing program in 2010. Four years later she has a life threatening disease. Sucks to start your career that way. I wish her a speedy recovery.

    They can return, they just have to spend 21 days in isolation and testing before they can rejoin the rest of the population.

    1/3 of US hospitals dont have sufficient supplies of eye protection and non-permeable gowns with which to treat Ebola patients
    But Obama and his CDC lackey still think everything is fine!
