The two hospitals are among four in the country that have special biocontainment units for infectious diseases.

    linkypooo...

    Stop panicking.
    Not panicking. But should this spread, and with such few facilities properly equipped to handle this type of disease, should it spread, it does justifiably raise concerns.

    When dealing with a viral outbreak, whether it be chickenpox, measles, the flu or any other virus outbreak, the proper containment of the outbreak is the only reasonable and responsible course of action.

    When you were a child and contracted chickenpox, did your mother send you back to school to infect all the other kids?

    No, you stayed home until you were no longer contagious. Same thing here with Ebola except that it's far more people from a particular region of Africa.

    So yes, the US should put a ban on all visas for travelers from those regions of Africa. Or perhaps a mandatory 3 week quarantine at the source. Why keep importing Ebola? Or at least why keep importing people with a high risk of being infected with Ebola?

    Some are saying that the entire state of Texas needs to be quarantined now. That is ridiculous. 2 isolated cases from a known contact source does not an outbreak make. 10, 20 or 30 or more, most definitely an outbreak, especially if it can't be traced back to a contact source. Talk about walking around in a mine field.

    Now if there is a larger outbreak in Texas in the next three weeks, if the fellow travelers on the second nurse's airliner generate outbreaks to wherever they've gone to, then it's going to get really serious really fast. Marshall law serious. Forced quarantine of entire areas serious.

    But, thankfully, that spread and that outbreak has not happened yet. There's a chance that it might. We'll have to see.

    Pawns of our own creation. We get the government we deserve. Don't like it? Change it. At least you have the power to in our self governing country unlike many others.
    It is very likely that you enjoy being a pawn. There remains just one more opportunity short of revolution to restore the nation. We have the Article V convention of states to reverse the tyranny. If we fail then we have slavery or rebellion in our future.

    It's not so easy to spread. It's just news trying to get ratings. The reason why it's spreading so easily in Africa is that their tradition for handling dead bodies puts them in contact with their bodily fluids. A person dies of Ebola and the relatives traditionally wash the dead bodies. It won't spread here like it does there.

    They have to adjust to make something that was fool proof... to totally dumbass-idiot proof for people who don't follow the protocol.
    So what you have just done is tell me you didn't read the entire article. Must I spoonfeed you?

    The two Nurses are NOT in Texas anymore.

    We are a self governing people. I'm not happy with our system outright and think we can do much better... but we are still self governing. What you just said above is EXACTLY what should exclude you and anyone who thinks like you from ever governing at all. Because you just blatantly stated that you think self governing is evil.

    How did the two Nurses in Dallas catch it then ?

    How did the free lance Photographer catch it ?
