Here is a bit more information concerning the children potentially involved in Dallas:

The children, who attend four separate schools, apparently had contact with the man over the weekend and then returned to classes this week. But school officials have said they showed no symptoms.

Thanks for the news, so the government and the CDC is all over tracking all the people that came into contact with the man from Liberia from the beginning.

Good news, I am taking the liberty to post this piece now, from the link provided.


girlfriend Quarantined, but Upbeat

Regarding the current case, FrontPageAfrica has learned that the patient’s girlfriend is said to be upbeat but is currently under along with some eight other members of her household in Dallas, Texas. “She had just sent for him from Liberia and he took sick. The CDC has been visiting her every day since he was hospitalized Sunday. Her job has been supportive but she has been asked to stay home only as a precaution. So she remains under quarantine along with eight persons in the house where she lives. The CDC will keep coming to her and making sure she’s OK for the next 21 days," a family source told FrontPageAfrica Wednesday.

And "fight or flight" is hardwired into our brains. Might be harder to track down contacts if someone (who is asymptomatic) realized they'd been a seatmate of Patient Z and decided to bug out. You know, take the family on a little trip, spreading Ebola at every gas station, restaurant, and motel. Or maybe I'm just overthinking?

Does not sound like a Liberian name?

OK team, get to the people searches and find out who he is...


'Found some info. on Thomas Duncan. He was actually from Ghana.




According to his Facebook page, Thomas Eric Duncan is from Accra in Ghana. The page says that he lives in Monrovia, Liberia – one of the areas hit worst by the Ebola outbreak.

What comes to mind is the memory of President Bush shortly before he left office talking about (teary eyed) some terrible virus that could hit the US and overwhelm our ability to cope with. I recall discussions on ATS years ago on that subject.

Interesting. I had not known of this little bush speech. Any chance you may remember the thread?

Yes you are right, but that was a result of the hype of the H1N1 that became nothing after the vaccine was produced, big pharma lost a lot of money, because nobody wanted to get vaccinated.

Is it just me or does it seem like they are a bit to relaxed about this whole thing. The people he was living with and had the most close contact with are told to just stay home and we'll check in on you every day to make sure your ok. WTF??? I would think they would have moved them to a locked down facility so they could moniter them. Otherwise they could leave the house or others could come to the house thus spreading it even further. Because lets face it, people are stupid and will do exactly the opposite of their told to do.

Where do you get off deciding this guy was just visiting family and even if so, are you even remotely aware what daily life is like in LIBERIA,
And yeah i'll get into the deformation of character of a sick man, he's a piece of trash, your in the middle of an outbreak of ebola and you travel if your not in health care? that's an ill informed, careless, waste of a human being, I'm supposed to believe this moron didn't know he had encountered anybody with Ebola when they are burying people left and right? Or that he wasn't just trying to save his own skin while putting people at risk? What he obviously cared about was getting the hell out of Liberia which I can echo the sentiment and understand but it still doesn't make him a decent person. The containment in Africa is ONE location, it's not America, the boogey man in this case is absolutely REAL


Firstly "i get off " as you so elequently put it by reading and researching the topic (i.e. he was visinting family read the news!). I am what you westerners would describe as an African ( even though that is a CONTINENT not a country!) so do not lecture me on how life is in the third world.

I will refrain from name calling something which you should consider. You are quite clearly however not capable of reasonable debate; my main concern is the pain and worry your ignorant words and actions may cause to others. Now calm down and stop being a part of the problem and try to be part of the solution.

This blame game you are playing is quite frankly sickening and ridiculous. I will say this America has doctors hospitals finance materials and an unfamiliar climate for this virus, it is a millon times bettter suited for containment and patients are much more likely to survive. However i am not willing to engage you any more in discussion as quite frankly i find you crass and offesive.

Notice how i did not include RACIST (as i did not in my previous post ), however i beleive your generalisations of foreigners from that area of the world and the tourists that visit to be offensive.

But school officials have said they showed no symptoms.

abcnews.go.com...

I hate quoting my own post, but the part I bolded just struck me. School officials said the students show no symptoms?
Are the kids in school today?

Shouldn't they be quarantined at home instead of mingling with the students of 4 different schools?

I sure hope this information is wrong...and those poor kids must be nervous.

For what I am reading is several members of the family quarantine, I can only guess that the children are among them.

I was thinking the same thing. But, I think that is a blanket statement call, like the kind you get from an automated phone call from the school. Not that they are in school, but the are not showing symptoms from wherever they are.

BINGO!!!How right you are, and Yes it is absurd that parents with this knowledge would send their kids to school!

Or that the CDC officials monitoring the situation would think it is a good idea?

What happens if one of them begins to feel ill while at school?

I understand trying to keep the kids' routines as normal as possible so as not to frighten them, but it seems risky.

a reply to: MOMof3

MOMof3, just read your linked article. It quotes the School Superintentant:

The superintendent says the students didn't exhibit any symptoms.

"So, the odds of them passing on any sort of virus is very low," Miles said.

Miles says the schools have been staffed with additional health employees as a precaution and to answer questions.


Then further down the article it says this:

Thompson says each of those children have been kept home and are under precautionary monitoring.



So which is true?
Maybe they attended Monday, but have been kept home since?
