    Yeah, and that's only from the 3 most infected countries. There is a few more than that.

    Flights from West Africa's infected countries must be barred from the USA/EU and better yet, Grounded.
    There is no pressing need for Intl travel from these Tiny crap-holes.
    Those planes are being used daily.

    Texas Ebola Patient Flew on Night Before Fever Appeared, CDC Says

    Second Health Worker With Ebola Flew From Cleveland to Dallas; Passengers Sought

    Texas Ebola Patient Flew on Night Before Symptoms Appeared, CDC Says - WSJ - WSJ

    The second Texas health-care worker to be diagnosed with Ebola flew domestically the night before she reported symptoms, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.

    The woman flew on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Oct. 13, the CDC said. The patient didn’t exhibit symptoms during the flight, the CDC said, which could mean she wasn’t contagious at the time.

    However, the agency and Frontier Airlines are now seeking 132 passengers from that flight.
    The infected woman had flown to Cleveland from Dallas on Oct. 10 on Frontier Flight 1142, the CDC said.
    The CDC is asking passengers who may have traveled on either flight to contact the agency at 1-800-CDC-INFO.

    The patient, whose name wasn’t disclosed, was a health-care worker who treated a Liberian man diagnosed with Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas on Sept. 30. He died last Wednesday.

    The woman began exhibiting symptoms of Ebola the morning after the Oct. 13 flight, which landed in Dallas at 8:16 p.m. local time on Monday.

    Frontier Airlines said that after the Monday flight, “the aircraft received a thorough cleaning per our normal procedures, which is consistent with CDC guidelines.” The plane carried passengers on Tuesday and was cleaned again on Tuesday night, the airline said.
    Immediately upon learning of the Ebola patient’s flight, the airline Removed the aircraft from service.

    The hospital didn’t immediately respond to questions about why the health-care worker was on a commercial flight, a day after another worker had been diagnosed with the Ebola virus.
    Wait till Flu season soon breaks out! It will be Hazmat suit Halloween in hospitals and Airlines.
    Flights and/or passengers originating in the 3 or 4 West African countries must be barred here (USA/EU) or better yet, grounded.
    The virus must be treated, and better yet, ISOLATED geographically, so as not to NEEDLESSLY endanger the rest of the planet.

    What happens if an Infected person Lands in Mexico City, Honduras, or Bombay, instead of the USA?

    It was good he stepped up. However, the CDC seems to highlighting government incompetence right now, so I am not sure that 25 million will be spent well. They already have a 6.6 Billion dollar budget, and the head of the CDC seems untrustworthy and somewhat lost.

    Well once you saw who he was.....you knew then who the fall guy will be. He tried to play it off.....as he knew there was another case. Now the Nurses at that Dallas Hospital are talking.

    Re: SECOND Dallas Hospital Worker Tests Positive for Ebola

    CDCís new Ebola model estimates the potential future impact of the epidemic. According to the modelís worst case scenario, which assumes no change in the trajectory of the epidemic and also corrects for underreporting, the number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone together could reach 1.4 million by the end of January 2015. This translates into a whopping 14% cumulative prevalence rate. To put this in perspective, an equivalent rate in the U.S. population would be almost 45 million people nationally, and more than 90,000 in Washington, DC alone.

    If something even close to this scenario occurs, it'll be a financial wipe-out in the markets. The Dow has already dropped 450pt once today. Something is wrong about how infectious this strain is and its form of transmittability with the cumulative prevalence rate, especially with another Dallas case. The CDC ain't telling the whole story, in efforts to prevent panic.

    Now that a second Nurse has been infected with Ebola, Obama is suddenly postponing a few fundraisers to talk and possibly do something about Ebola.

    This is whats stunningly clear-less definitive solutions to CONTAINMENT (one of the very effective means of treating infectious disease) have failed. Period.

    We need to close travel from those nations (not for medical and military personnel) immediately. Its not the worlds burden to keep open travel so that locals dont "feel" isolated, or to prop up whatever passes for an economy there. This is PC idiocy gone wild.

    If Obama has put golf or fundraising on hold it must be serious. Or he's just worried about his polling.

    Yea, they're waiting too long to get out ahead of this thing and publicly reporting underestimates of its virulence and ability to spread and in attempt to prevent market panic. But the longer they delay restricting flights and throwing more resources at it, the worst this scenario is going too get, especially if they're lying about it being somewhat airborne.
