    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    Thankfully.

    Let's hope that the percentage of false negatives in such testing is microscopically low.

    Regardless, people who've spent recent time in West Africa need to be quarantined prior to returning to the U.S.

    It's the intelligent, smart thing to do.

    I do hope you're right, because the ban seems to be the only controllable action they can take right now.

    Thanks to all the scare mongering pretty much anyone who coughs and goes to the ER is going to make front page news.

    With 120-150 people a day flying into the US from those areas, it's only a matter of time before a few more cases causes enough pressure to install a 'no fly ban'. They're actually afraid if we start a ban now that it will hurt emerging countries economies, or cause other nations to restrict flights. But letting this drag on into something worse, will eventually hurt the world's finances far more. I'd rather be safe and wrong, than right and aloof about potential deadly diseases spreading.

    Ebola can have symptoms initially just like malaria or other diseases... that this student just came back from West Africa --- probably a good move to put him in isolation and check it out. With a 70% mortality rate I think if someone just came back from West Africa and has a temperature or other similar symptoms of Ebola they'd better check it out and make sure.
    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.
