    Your link was better -

    Our data corroborated Wunderlich's in that mean temperature varied diurnally, with a 6 AM nadir, a 4 to 6 PM zenith, and a mean amplitude of variability of 0.5C (0.9F); women had slightly higher normal temperatures than men; and there was a trend toward higher temperatures among black than among white subjects.

    Conclusions. —Thirty-seven degrees centigrade (98.6F) should be abandoned as a concept relevant to clinical thermometry; 37.2C (98.9F) in the early morning and 37.7C (99.9F) overall should be regarded as the upper limit of the normal oral temperature range in healthy adults aged 40 years or younger
    And I suppose what's "normal" for that nurse would require a weeks (?) long tracking of her temperature under various conditions, menstrual cycle, etc.

    As well as time of day and environmental factors. All this leads to: The CDC should have erred on the side of caution and told the nurse not to fly.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    LOL, You were the one who had an unfounded opinion. I backed mine up with a source - journal and year. Sorry if you are used to getting spoonfed and are too freakin lazy to look it up.

    Edit: Just noticed you actually did look it up. And apparently read it wrong. Your source shows 99.5 as normal.

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

    Actually you didn't. What you did was whimp out and not enter a link that is easily found.

    It shows your not very sure or very lazy yourself. I had the JAMA link before I ask you for a link.

    What my source says is it depends... what it DOESN'T say is that normal is 99.5. Try reading it again.

    Love the fact that Obama just appointed a Political hack with ZERO medical expertise to be the " Ebola Czar ".

    Shows us where his priorities lie.

    Not in the health and well-being of Americans, but in how this affects him and Democrats Politically.

    Re: Texas Health Care Worker Tests Positive for Ebola

    First GOP fearmongers are against all czars in 2009.

    Then they were for a czar while back-stabbing President Ebola.

    Now thery're back to bitching about the czar who was appoionted cuz of politics.

    Meanwhile we don't have a Surgeon General cuz the GOP lives in frear of the NRA.

    There is no level the GOP won't lower itself to play p0olitics with Health and Death.

    It's no surprise to me that TEXAS dropped the initial ball not following CDC protocol--
    clearly incompetent or on purpose or both .

    The incompetent and impotent Texas hospital, or was it on purpose, says even more.
    Very conservatives only use Unions, in a dishonest way, to blatantly lie about an issue, fear-mongering on Health and Death .

    Oh we should be thankful that Obama appointed a Political hack that has zero experience in doing ANYTHING relevant to this crisis ?

    Sorry, I'm not a Obama sycophant and I can see just how stupid and irresponsible this appointment is.

    And stop crying about the lack of a Surgeon General. Given Obama's long list of failed appointments the GOP is doing you a and everyone else a huge favor.
