I found it highly disturbing that the CDC also attempted to place an embargo on this story so that it could not be reported until this afternoon.

The world failed to heed the warnings and pleas for help coming out of Africa for far too long. More
Actually, I think you are wrong. Western clinicians and medical teams have been working in Africa since this most recent Ebola outbreak started. In the thick of it. Or don't the facts count?

Not so fast. Everything he touched has Ebola on it. If he is feverish he wipes his brow and opens the door to the bathroom, touches the toilet lid, the flush handle, the toilet paper, the inside door handle, the sink, the soap the paper towels…
If the is having diarrhea or vomting… then he touches things even more. And thats just the hospital bathroom during the first visit. The one he was turned away after.
Ebola can live outside the body for a while even in dried sweat.
Highly infectious means it doesn't take but one to ten particles to contract it (potentially).

Just watching the press conference and apparently he had symptoms for 4 days before he went to the hospital but they say he only had a handful of contacts in that time.

That coupled with the fact that he was turned away from the hospital the first time he went in. How many others will be misdiagnosed in the future?

Is is just a coincidence that all these major epidemics are escalating at once? ISIS, Ebola, Ukraine....
