    I agree. I am a bit surprised that he didn't self-quarantine himself when he began feeling sluggish. Fortunately, if the early story is accurate, he was not symptomatic even last night, so the risk that others were exposed when he went bowling is very low. Of course, Ebola also is not an airborne virus.

    Several years ago, there was a vaccine developed for Ebola. However, there was no lucrative market for it. Now, conveniently, with this latest outbreak- there is.

    Johnson & Johnson to begin testing Ebola vaccine in January - MarketWatch

    I wonder if the government workers and politicians are Johnson & Johnson stockholders. Imo, it has become abundantly obvious that the CDC/government's utter disregard for public safety is profit motivated.

    Shouldn't your post be in the conspiracy category?

    It's all our fault. Communism would have succeeded had it not been for America.

    Patient in New York City Tests Positive for Ebola

    He told the authorities that he did not believe the protective gear he wore while working with Ebola patients had been breached but had been monitoring his own health.

    Doctors Without Borders, in a statement, said it provides guidelines for its staff on their return from Ebola assignments, but did not elaborate on those protocols.

    “The individual engaged in regular health monitoring and reported this development immediately,” the group said in a statement.

    Dr. Spencer began to feel sluggish on Tuesday but did not develop a fever until Thursday morning, he told the authorities. At 11 a.m., the doctor found that he had a 103-degree temperature and alerted the staff of Doctors Without Borders, according to the official.

    The staff of Doctors Without Borders called the city’s health department, which in turn called the Fire Department.

    Emergency medical workers, wearing full personal protective gear, rushed to Dr. Spencer’s apartment, on West 147th Street. He was transported to Bellevue and arrived shortly after 1 p.m.

    He was placed in a special isolation unit and is being seen by the pre-designated medical critical care team. They are in personal protective equipment with undergarment air ventilation systems.
    He did not seek medical evaluation or help until he had a temperature of 103.

    No person goes from a normal temperature of 98.6, to a temperature of 103 in less than several hours, and generally a day or more.

    The time period from a temp of a 103, and the time he went out in public was less than 14 hours.

    When he reached a temperature of 101, why did he not self-isolate?

    This doctor's behavior was not in keeping with someone with the intelligence and training required to become a Doctor who is sent to an Ebola Hot zone.

    This was a deliberate act. We all know it, even if right now our selfish, foolish Politics, prevent U.S. from admitting it!

    I disagree. It may have been somewhat careless, but if it were deliberate, he wouldn't have sought help when he became symptomatic.
