    This. And I seriously doubt we're hearing about every actual case or potential one. Which, I don't blame the gov't for trying to put a lid on the economic catastrophe that panic over this could cause. Between airline stocks plunging, oil prices dipping, slowing economies in Europe (Germany?), Russian sanctions and FED warnings there are lots of market worries. But being dishonest with the public up front doesn't build confidence, and actually fans the flames of hysteria when the populace doesn't trust the leaders entrusted with their care. The love of money is becoming more important than human life, and that ain't cool.

    He's still against travel bans.
    And calls for his resignation have begun.

    Next you'll tell me there weren't an orgy of rapes, child molestation, sniper attacks, roving gangs, and mountains of dead bodies in the Super Dome during Katrina....

    I wonder how many more there will be just from that one guy coming to the United States.
    What I don't understand is how come the folks that were living with him in that apartment aren't infected... am I missing something here?

    It is a bit surprising to me as well.
    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.

    But the reality is... I am frightened.

    I work in a resort that attracts visitors from every corner of the globe, I've got a big horse in this fight.

    Whether the disease comes here or stops people from travelling, my life is very much connected to this thing.

    I even took the time to donate money to Doctors Without Borders because I believe we have to tackle this thing at its source.

    But I have to put my faith in what we know about this disease and its infectiousness, in the west there has been a number of Ebola sufferers repatriated and treated and so far 1 nurse in Spain and the two workers in Texas bless their souls have fallen ill.

    It's worrying because it shows either there's something wrong with procedure, or the equipment they used, but it doesn't change how transmission occurred which is coming into direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected individual.

    I'd also remind you that it has been almost 21 days since Mr. Duncan was not in quarantine and infectious and no one else he came into contact with got the virus.

    This is a very sad day for these healthcare workers, but hundreds of other healthcare workers have already died trying to combat this terrible disease, if this isn't a call to action I don't know what is.
    Ok, fair enough. However, your horse in this race as you put it, is not being served well by minimizing the threat we now face.

    The border remains unsecured, and now this latest case where the nurse traveled to OH and back on domestic flights. Where's the people on those flights? How many did she come in contact with? What hotel did she stay at?

    The potential for an out of control situation to take hold is now there, and we are supposed to believe a CDC, and administration that lies and has to change their story daily?

    We are being lied to.

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

    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?

    The nurses were treating him when he was in his worst condition creating large amounts of contagious fluids.

    They had direct contact with blood, and feces, and vomit.

    Interesting enough, after talking with the first nurse, they said they cannot pinpoint exactly when or how she came in contact with the disease or when or how she broke protocols.

    Yes, but the nurses were wearing protective gear and the family members were not.... were they not cleaning up bodily fluids in the apartment?
