    The plane may have been decontaminated... But it didn't HAVE to be.

    An asymptomatic patient should not be shedding virus. If they are, it's confined to bodily secretions and the infectious potential of those is time sensitive.

    Learn something about it before you panic.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I have a strong layman's background in epidemiology after my college microbio courses. Love it. I am very disappointed with the CDC being reactionary in so many ways to the occurrences of Ebola here in the US.

    I'll be on multiple planes next week. Not an issue for me.

    The CDC was not wrong. We know nothing new about Ebola today than we didn't know last month. Or really, last year. Transmission from surfaces is remote except for bodily fluids that common sense tells you not to touch.

    I have a background in treating infectious disease, including some HIV patients in the mid 80s. This is a concern, but not a 24 hours news concern.

    Bodily fluids on surfaces that people don't expect or cannot see? Really?

    I know it is remote, however as the 2 nurses in Dallas are clear proof of....the CDC has underestimated contagion factors. And 'remote' means nothing when an individual gets it. It esp. means nothing with our media and it's potential effects on the economy.

    No. The nurses are proof that the hospital didn't train their staff well. The CDC needs to intensify their remedial training program.

    The effects on the economy are miniscule, and will continue to be.

    The CDC has admitted they didn't assess the Dallas situation correctly. And the suits were inadequate and the CDC was supposed to have provided the protocols for the training. The gap in the necklines....if it's not airborne....at least by blood in human aerosols...how did they get it?

    And the effects on the economy have the potential to show people what a real 'crash' is.

    BREAKING: Carnival Cruise Passengers Flagged For Ebola
    posted (October 16, 2014)

    There is a major developing story in the Belize harbor this evening - and it is that two cruise ship passengers who have been flagged as possible Ebola cases - are on a boat tender trying to come into Belize City tonight for movement to the PGIA where an air ambulance is reportedly waiting. But, our information says Belizean authorities are currently refusing them entry to Belize so that they can get to the airport. Those authorities are asking that they be sent back to the cruise ship. That's where it is at this hour - and there is no official information - though we have been trying to reach multiple senior persons in the ministry of health. The tender reportedly remains in the harbor - between the cruise ship and Belize City - with US authorities seeking assistance of Belizean authorities to grant them passage. It is reportedly a couple. Again, no confirmation at this hour but more than one credible report.

    We'll keep following this and have more tomorrow...

    UPDATE: US STATE - LEVEL REQUESTS FOR DISEMBARKATION AND TRANSFER TO AIR AMBULANCE WERE DENIED AND THE CRUISE SHIP HAS LEFT BELIZE'S WATERS. THE SHIP TURNED AT 9:00PM, AND AIR AMBULANCE LEFT PGIA AIRPORT.

    Re: Texas Health Care Worker Tests Positive for Ebola

    The NBC photojournalist with Ebola thinks he became sick after helping clean out a car. Scary to think of the possibility that Ebola can linger on surfaces this way. Frontier Airlines is removing the seat covers and carpet in the immediate vicinity of the infected nurse. Frontier to remove carpet, seat covers in Ebola plane

    I will leave it to other sovereign countries to determine what to do. We can stop more ebola-infected from coming here by denying them visas.

    "Or we can do the very simple thing of refusing to grant permission for people to come here who have been to Ebla country recently."

    Why do you believe this is relevant? We can do what is right. If other nations fail to do the same we can add them to Ebola country. No one has a right to travel to the United States.
