    There is no f-ing excuse for not doing it! Especially if one's next destination is a densely-packed city of 12 million people!

    This man should be jailed just for being stupid!

    I partly agree.

    Ebola being in the US is Obama's fault.

    Just reported that a League City ( Town South of Houston ) man was just sent to UTMB Medical Center in Galveston.

    He flew in from West Africa and the went to a local Clinic with " Ebola like Symptoms .

    Unreal.

    The best way to fight ebola is to fight it in Africa.

    He's not the stupid one.
    Don't work out, work in.

    This should have been part of the answer after the first case here.


    U.S. officials considering quarantines for returning healthcare workers.....


    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Obama administration is considering quarantines for healthcare workers returning from Ebola-ravaged West African countries, an official said on Friday, as authorities in New York retraced the steps of a doctor with the disease. In Washington, President Barack Obama hugged a Dallas nurse who survived Ebola after catching it from a patient.

    Quarantining healthcare workers returning to the United States from the Ebola "hot zone" was one of a number of options being discussed by officials from across the administration, Tom Skinner, a spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told Reuters.

    The worst Ebola outbreak on record has killed at least 4,877 people and perhaps as many as 15,000, predominantly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).....snip~

    Breach of protocol, combined with initial counfusion, and they didn't infect anyone else.

    Let's pretend an American citizen who unknowingly has Ebola is in Liberia. America institutes a flight ban from Liberia. What do you expect this person to do?

    1) Shrug their shoulders and stay in Liberia until Ebola disappears from the Earth
    2) Drive across the border into an unaffected country and then get home.
