    Of course you failed in your explanation.

    Dude get a clue.
    Two things, prevent potentially ebola exposed people from coming here. You do not want to take this simple, precautionary step. The One has not told you it is okay to be sensible yet. Second of two things, you have still not made your case for the vital national interest that compelled The One to give the order, between rounds of golf, to send 4,000 precious American troops to ebola country.

    Why haven't you?

    He is right so far. The chance will remain low until after the mid-term elections.

    I never said it was spreading from her to others.....Show us where this was said to you.

    I pointed out you were wrong about the disease not leaving the hospital.

    Not even BO peep can help you with lying.

That some initial errors occurred e.g., lack of full comminication of the initial patient's presence in Liberia, does not change this. Moreover, the CDC has now accepted some responsibility. From The Washington Post:

    The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the agency regretted its initial response to the first Ebola diagnosis in the United States, acknowledging that more could have been done to combat infection at the hospital treating the patient.

    “We did send some expertise in infection control,” Thomas Frieden said during a news conference Tuesday. “But I think we could, in retrospect, with 20/20 hindsight, have sent a more robust hospital infection control team and been more hands-on with the hospital from day one about exactly how this should be managed.”


    CDC director: We could have done more to prevent second Ebola infection in Texas - The Washington Post

    IMO, the U.S. and other countries would do best to learn from what happened, develop more robust approaches so that hospitals are prepared for dangerous viruses, assure that hospitals have the equipment they need, etc. Almost certainly, the U.S. and/or other countries will face a pandemic of some kind--maybe not in our lifetimes, but at some point in the future--be it from natural events, accident, biological attack, etc.
    Knowing how deadly this virus is should have raised red flags and set off huge alarms at the CDC. Frieden's confessions are galactic understatements to say the least. People are dying because of CDC negligence. In the case of this particular virus, it's really criminal negligence.

    Look how much money these orginiazations will profit from an ebola outbreak in america, and africa. We wonder why the CDC waited so long before actually quarantining the house of patient zero? and why obama flew ebola patients back in to the US instead of the mandatory emergency response? So they blame the nurses and hospitals when they haven't funded them with any form of preparation? the spend 700 million on sending troops to africa to fight ebola but cant even spend a 50 million on hospitals in america to prepare for an outbreak? The CDC owns a patient on ebola and hillary clinton says its because conservatives have blocked the funding? This is seriously corruption at its finest everybody.

    He does listen to the CDC and it's the CDC that will take stronger measures if necessary. Already they are considering specialty locations for positive cases.
    The World Heath Organization said today that it predicts 10,000 new cases of Ebola PER WEEK in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone by the end of the year. Now.. what would be the prudent thing to do in light of this warning? Is the prudent thing to take people's temperatures at the airport when we know Ebola doesn't immediately present with symptoms? Obama is putting a band aid on a gun shot wound and hoping it just goes away. In other words, he's the inexperienced nitwit that savvy political observers predicted he was way back in 2008!

    There's obviously a reason why Ebola is a bsl-4 contagion.
    What part of my response didnt you understand? They think she didnt put it on correctly or took it off improperly.

    Another part of CDC procedures is to have a buddy observing while doing so. Apparently 'the buddy system' part of the process was not shared with the hospital(s)
