    Dallas Health Care Worker Who Handled Specimen From Ebola Victim Quarantined On.....

    They have isolated a 3rd Dallas Nurse. She had went on a Cruise with Carnival Cruise lines. They say there is little chance she is infected. Also that it has been 19 days. The Country of Belize would not let her in. State Dept is trying to find a way to get her back here. What say ye?





    .....Cruise Ship.


    Obama administration officials said a Dallas health care worker who handled a lab specimen from a Liberian man who died from Ebola is self-quarantined on a Caribbean cruise ship and is being monitored for infection. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement Friday that the woman had shown no signs of the disease and has been asymptomatic for 19 days.

    The government is working to return the woman and her husband to the U.S. before the ship, the Carnival Magic, completes its cruise. The White House said the State Department was working to secure their transportation home. An administration official who was not authorized to be named and requested anonymity said the cruise ship had stopped in Belize but officials there would not allow the passenger to leave the vessel.....snip~

    The route through Mexico seems to work well.

    Taking a cruise probably isn't the best option... granted people plan vacations etc.... but this Ebola issue has take a life of it's own. She's probably not a very popular passenger on the boat right now - both with the passengers and the cruise line, who will most likely (out of an abundance of caution) have to take the boat out of service and clean it from bow to stern. That's also the last thing cruise lines need is another potential virus infection on a boat. They have enough trouble with the norovirus getting people sick on boats, not to mention potentially Ebola.

    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.

    Yeah they say she isolated herself.....but that's not what really went down. Although she hasn't been locked down until she found out. So how many days was she out and about? Did she swim in their pool?

    Should they hold all on that Ship?

    For those keeping score at home, 1 Ebola patient has led to the quarantine or voluntary quarantine of roughly... 8,000 people.

    And Nurse#2, it is now reported, attended a bachelorette party while in Cleveland. No chances of body fluid sharing there!

    Not that I know of. The only report I read was that two strippers are on voluntary quarantine. Which is comforting given that they were only exposed (PUN!) because they came in contact with someone on voluntary quarantine.

    They shouldn't take any chances with this Cruise Ship either.....they need to know how many days she was out on deck or doing whatever.

    I don't think they should hold everyone on the ship but they should be monitored for the next 21 days. They need to go on a list.... I don't think we're at the point yet where we would corral this boat load of people into a quarantine area for the next 3 weeks. But they should be aware there may be a chance they contracted the disease and should be on alert.
