    The government refuses to acknowledge transferal of the killer may be air born.
    The government is using ticket takers to read temperature of incoming people from Africa. These are the same people videotaped sleeping at their stations and allow hundreds of drugs and handguns to go right by them.
    Yep its all over. Might as well go out behind the woodshed and put a bullet in your head.

    What state did the other Ebola patients go to? Looks like Texas needs to model that hospitals methods.

    You said or implied it is spreading like wildfire everywhere. Other than some of the West African countries that is not the case. And in fact Nigeria has halted it's progress in their country.

    But hey go ahead with the hyperbole if it makes you feel better.

    IMO, taking precautions against a possible disaster isn't any more pessimistic or paranoid than wearing a seatbelt in case of an auto accident! When medical professionals don't know how to protect themselves against a virus like Ebola, what hope is there for the rest of us? Why are we not being told the whole story?

    I love how you use Obama as a your whipping boy but make no mention of Perry that was making a big deal out of how ready and qualified Texas hospitals were who is a republican. Partisan much?

    Hey where the **** is Perry anyway? Oh that's right he's having a great time in Europe.

    This statement is self defeating. You can't logically say you don't know how they were infected and then claim to know how they were infected.

    The fact is that Ebola is proving more virulent than was previously believed. The problem with an Ebola outbreak of this scale is that as an RNA virus Ebola mutates several times per host in response to the hosts immune defenses. The more infections the greater the chances that Ebola has to become more virulent. Ebola, until now, has remained contained and less virulent because of the lack of availability of hosts, lack of transport, and quick lethality. All this together ensured that the virus had limited chances to mutate.

    Now that it has broken out into dense populations with access to rapid deployment all over the globe the rate of mutation has increased dramatically. I don't think there is much to fear about the strain of Ebola that Duncan brought to the US, but I do think their is reason to fear the strains of Ebola to come as the number of infected in Africa reach into the millions. As a society we are behaving no differently than either of those nurses who are now infected, relying on bad protocols and an poor understanding of the threat to keep us safe.

    The other State used the experimental drug ZMapp on those two patients.

    There is no more ZMAPP.
