You are far too trusting. How do you know the nurse in charge of taking care of these people is not having marriage troubles and taking some drugs or what ever and wont make a mistake? You don't. I live in the reality of human error. These infected Doctors were using the First world protocalls you know and had all the best equipment at their disposal.

That was a different strain. It was also stated that it was large droplets and spread to nearby lifeforms. Ebola is not airborne. I'm sorry you think all news stations are out to deceive us. Paranoid was a good name for you to choose. Those folks you call talking heads are interviewing the medical professionals and every one says it's not airborne.

Ebola does not have to be airborne to be contagious.
Sick patient sneezes in room. Patient puts suit on in room and it rubs against an area where parts of the sneeze landed.
Patient flies to Atlanta and suit rubs parts of aircraft, ambulance, ground.
Ambulance driver touches area where suit left spit from previous sneeze.
Diver goes to Mcdonalds and lays his hand on counter.
100's of people touch the counter and all go home to their kids.
Kids go to school.
All spreading the disease they now have but not yet displaying symptoms.
21 Days later the Ambulance driver is dead. Millions of Americans now infected and going to die.
I come on here and say I told you so.
Hope and pray the above does not happen
but was it worth risking us all just for comfort of two individuals?
So how did all these well trained professionals become infected?
They could have been treated there, without introducing an as-yet unknown virus to the Western hemisphere.
They knew the risks and probably know the risks of bringing it back here but did it anyway. Why?
You are taking a pretty emotional view here, and that's understandable.
The reality is, this was not a wise decision but will benefit someone
