And THIS is exactly why it can and will spread like wildfire;
"BSA is not treating this as Ebola, until Ebola is confirmed."

That is why we now have 2 nurses who are infected with Ebola. It wasn't a breach in protocol, it was a total lack of protocol. Treat them like they have Ebola until the tests come back negative! Why is that such a difficult concept?

That whole story does not make sense..read it again and follow their logic..

AMARILLO -- BSA is on lock down because a patient went to the emergency room with signs and symptoms of Ebola.

A BSA spokeswoman says the patient does not have a travel history but has had contact with someone who has been to the four countries in Africa with an Ebola outbreak.

BSA is working to confirm the travel history and taking precautions.
UPDATE 6:48 P.M. -- BSA is reporting that the patient didn't come into contact with anyone that had been to an Africa country with Ebola in the last 21 days. The lockdown is lifted

Bolding is mine...but really..patient states they have been in contact with someone who traveled to four countries with Ebola, shows signs and symptoms of ebola and now is not considered a risk because patient has not been in contact with anyone who went to Africa?

Who lied to whom about what?

One slightly ignorant question please. How would the patient KNOW if the people they met at the grocery store or who were in line in front of them at the bank had been to an Ebola hotspot recently????????? Do they know for sure that none of the people from the hospital where Mr. Duncan was a patient were sneezing on that shopping cart they used last week??????

STUPID STUPID STUPID!

With all these "lapses in protocol" how many think the govt is really trying to protect you??????

Agenda 21.

On the incubation...
It CAN take 21 days, but as few as 2.
The most common is between 9-14.
But nothing is a constant..
It says that recent studies conducted in West Africa have demonstrated that 95% of confirmed cases have an incubation period in the range of 1 to 21 days; 98% have an incubation period that falls within the 1 to 42-day interval.

Actually.. this whole article is pretty good.
And it confirms my thoughts.. we do a quickie test and set them free. NO!
You can't just be whipping out a quickie test and declaring all is well...

It stays active in semen for 70+ days, even after the virus is out of other parts of the body. (weird, that one)

All personnel that tended to Mr. Duncan are now on a travel restriction. Can't travel out of area without an approved charter or non-public transport. That's 75 people who attended him during his critical care for possible transmission of the virus.

The nurse that traveled to Ohio to visit relatives has 3 that are employees at Kent State and they've been told not to show up for work for 21 days.

How about to the grocery store, the mall, wally world?

Whole families were confined to their homes during the polio outbreak in the 50's. Its time the government and hospitals start taking this seriously.

With the whole semen thing. Now I'm being fully serious here. If a man purges the contents of his testicls a few times would the Ebola leave faster? I mean they tell them no sex for like 3 months. If they purge the testicles would it leave the system faster?
I'm just curious.
