    I work in infectious disease as an IM practitioner, and they contract, bring home, and spread disease to other patients all the TIME. Its just that usually those diseases are treatable (but often catastrophic for patients who are already seriously ill) and much less virulent.

    Spare me the propaganda line here, theres a hole a miles wide that needs to be plugged.

    The doctor's mistake is mostly sociological, but it's a big one.

    The other part of the doctor's mistake is virological -- with all his medical knowledge, he's apparently ignorant that, if he, a White person, has the disease, he's increased the factors contributing to mutation to airborne: http://www.debatepolitics.com/health...ight-host.html.

    Those with even the slightest left lean would do well to spend less time posturing to protect the federal executive branch and more time being sensitive to the great majority of their fellow Americans' legitimate concerns.
    It was incredibly unethical and irresponsible. He should have to answer for this.

    Liberia infected ebola regions maps - Bing Images

    What do you think it means by Levels of transmission in a Country? Uhm.....note the 2 areas in Liberia with no Transmission.

    Hows the Rest of the Entire Country looking?
    Of note, the nations south of liberia, but north of Nigeria (another outbreak nation) have prevented the disease-how? By closing their borders.

    October 5: 122 per day
    October 12: 138 per day
    October 19: 134 per day
    They estimate that only about 1 in 4 cases are actually reported, in liberia, the drop was blamed on infections overloading the system. Not a good thing.

    For a so-called professional you like to scaremonger. That's not airborne, it's aerosol.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Good point. I should have been clearer, as I was referring to the doctor's case. He couldn't spread it before he became symptomatic. Once one has come down with Ebola, the virus lingers in one's semen for an extended period of time.

    What do I gain by "scaremongering"?
