    But I stress this, plenty of people suffering from Ebola have been repatriated, treated and other healthcare professionals have not contracted the virus, so we need to determine how this occurred and stop it from happening because nothing has changed in the way this virus transmits itself.

    The media is throwing around wild and crazy theories out there about transmission changes, but I would remind you its the same media that once propogated the insane notion that the Hydron Super Collider could start a black hole.
    Here is where one of those "wild and crazy theories" is coming from:
    Purdue News - Purdue expert showed Ebola can enter cells that line the trachea and lungs; says airborne transmission is not an impossibility

    The idea of the Ebola virus becoming airborne is not far-fetched and its ability to enter cells that line the trachea and lungs has been shown under controlled laboratory conditions, a Purdue University virus expert says.

    David Sanders, an associate professor of biological sciences who has studied the Zaire strain of Ebola virus that is responsible for the current outbreak in West Africa, says the possibility of the virus becoming airborne should not be discounted.

    "It is not unprecedented for a virus to change its mode of transmission," he says. "Ebola does share some of the characteristics of airborne viruses like influenza, and we should not disregard the possibility of it evolving into something that could be transmitted in this way."

    Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins is a a total freakin moron. Why does Dallas continue to embarrass itself by allowing this idiot to open his mouth. His stupidity reflects badly on Dallas county.

    Mornin 99. That's because they, are two of the four hospitals in the nation.....that have been training for years on how to handle such a crisis.

    What's more, staff in Atlanta and another containment unit in Omaha, Nebraska, would have trained and drilled for years for the possibility of such an occurrence, and they had advance warning of an Ebola case heading their way.

    The isolation unit at the Nebraska Medical Center has been working since it opened in 2005 to perfect routines to protect medical staff against infection, said Shelly Schwedhelm, nursing and training director of the unit.

    The most important difference in the Nebraska unit and some hospitals, she said, are protocols for putting on protective equipment and safely taking it off.....snip~

    Nurse infected with Ebola knew risks of her work

    No, it's clearly the fault of allowing free and unfettered travel in from Ebola ravaged Nations in West Africa into the heartland of America.

    Ebola's been around since the mid 70s and we've always managed to keep it isolated.

    Not now. Not in Obama's America where Ebola in a Texas town is the new norm.

    The previous two Hospitals you mentioned KNEW Ebola patients were on the way.

    No one in that Hospital had any idea a deadly and exotic West African Virus would walk right into their Emergency room.

    Its NOT their fault.

    Besides, they STILL can't pinpoint exactly where and when the Nurse in Dallas breached CDC protocols.

    Blaming it on the Hospital....

    What the hell is wrong with some people ?

    The last two EBOLA Patients flew in and were brought into the other Hospitals in FULL HAZMAT suites

    Did Duncan walk into that Hospital in a Full HAZMAT suit ?

They maintain that the disease should have been stopped at the source in West Africa, and contained there, but it wasn't, hence their prediction. I hope they are wrong, but who knows? We do know that whole villages were wiped out in West Africa, and they are just as human as a person living anywhere else in the world, though..... scary!
    And now I am hearing that the 2nd case of Ebola flew to Cleveland and developed a fever on return to Dallas. Of course, that is assuming the patient isn't trying to spare her Cleveland contacts from quarantine.

    Big talk, but the #1 method of containment is quarantine and suspending flights out of the region. There is no reason why we should be allowing flights from the affected regions other than to protect from PC criticism that quarantine is somehow racist.

    I just read about that. So it is possible cases may show up in Cleveland too, and who knows where else after that.

    Someone said we had 2 airlines that fly to Africa.....United and Delta. Plus didn't they start screening at certain Airports. So that they can't go and fly to Europe and try to come in some other way.
