    Was also out jogging.....which he said he was feeling down then.
    Remember the doctors that contracted it in West Africa saying they followed strict protocols and they are stunned that they still got it? Such statements and now this doctor who, presumably also followed strict protocols when treating patients in West Africa also contracted the disease. For it to be so difficult to get, it seemingly is very resilient to get by those who know best how to prevent it and who are best protected. It makes me doubt the whole "it's very difficult to contract Ebola" message.

    The difference in the maps shows how the virus has spread. FWIW, the average daily figures for confirmed, probable, and suspected worldwide ebola cases for the last 3 weekly periods is below:

    7-Day Period Ending:
    October 5: 122 per day
    October 12: 138 per day
    October 19: 134 per day

    The more Ebola and ISIS are in the news, the worse it is for Democrats and the worse it is for Obama's policies which are on the ballots this mid-term.

    Probably true, although the notion that Ebola is somehow Democrats' fault is mindnumbingly stupid.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Yes, our most densely packed metropolis -- let's indeed pray.

    Though the good doctor most certainly did not intend for anything bad to happen, epidemic-wise, I'm struck by the following two likely scenarios:

    1. Either he knew he was sufficiently exposed to blood, vomit, and feces in West Africa to warrant him returning to America for the best care and his behavior was selfish and arrogant in not immediately self-isolating and contacting the CDC and demanding protective isolation quarantine ..

    .. or 2. he didn't think he could possibly have the disease as he knew he didn't have sufficient exposure to blood, vomit, and feces, wore what he believed was adequate protection when he was treating patients in West Africa .. and he was wrong about how the disease can be transmitted.

    Though the great majority of medical professionals think like this doctor with respect to how the disease is transmitted, virologists are, nevertheless, concerned about mutation to airborne.

    The less exposure our populace takes, the less likely the disease will mutate to airborne here.

    Yes.

    What you've just presented, that message is not lost on the general populous.

    Doctors want us to believe the disease is hard to catch, then another professional healthcare person gets it again.

    The "professionals" would do well to be more "bedside manner" sensitive to the population at large regarding their "don't worry" message.

    Right - it's certainly not the fault of Democrats. The nuance however is the main Democrat in Obama is not doing enough to prevent the ingress of new cases by taking more stringent steps to either deny entry of people traveling to the US from West Africa or for stricter quarantine measures. It's a rock in a hard place... if he doesn't do much and Ebola continues to trickle in it's bad... if he does the travel restrictions and harsh quarantine measure it spreads panic and show the US doesn't have a firm grasp on how to medically handle the situation.
