You are correct. The ambulance drivers are quarantined in their homes.

But they quarantined the ambulance drivers? or am I wrong?
Mr. Duncan may have become infected after his landlord's daughter fell gravely ill. On Sept 15, Mr. Duncan helped his landlord and his landlord's son carry the stricken woman to the hospital, his neighbors and the woman's parents said. She died the next day.
Soon, the landlord's son also became ill, and he died on Wednesday in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Two other residents in the neighborhood who may have had contact with the woman have also died. Their bodies were collected on Wednesday, as well.
took her by taxi to a hospital with Mr. Duncan’s help on Sept. 15
she died hours later, around 3 a.m.

obviously he didn't tell the docs here and
apparently they didn't ask him where he was from or where he traveled the first time at the hospital here in the usa(which leads me to believe he didn't volunteer the info)because they released him with antibiotics....
Dr. Mark Lester, executive vice president of the Texas Health Resources System, said the hospital staff had been instructed to ask patients about their travel history, following the advice of federal authorities.
That checklist, he said, was utilized by a nurse and the patient volunteered that he had just come from Liberia. “Regretfully that information was not fully communicated” to the full medical team, Dr. Lester said.

ShareFacebookTwitter.Ebola vaccines 'being fast-tracked'
Two experimental vaccines are being fast tracked for use in the Ebola outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.
Safety trials are under way in the UK and US but will be expanded to 10 sites in Africa, Europe and North America.
Manufacturers are working on producing more doses, with the goal of "a very significant increase in scale during the first half of 2015", said the WHO.
Trials to assess whether experimental vaccines work could begin in January.
However, a number of challenges remain - including the ethics of running clinical trials and how to choose who receives the vaccines.
One vaccine - made by GlaxoSmithKline - is already being tested in a handful of healthy human volunteers. Another vaccine - developed by Canada - could start initial safety testing in the US this month.
The UN Agency said in a statement: "Both companies are working to augment their manufacturing capacity. The goal is a very significant increase in scale during the first half of 2015."
So that blood really worked!! Well, not necessarily. You see, there's more at work here than just the blood transfusion. The authors of the paper indicated that those 8 patients not only received blood transfusions, they got better supportive care, and with Ebola supportive care may keep you alive just enough for your body to fight the virus on it's own. In fact, another paper published in 1999, by Sadek et al (5), found that with Ebola, the longer you live the better your chances of survival. Sound obtuse? Well, they made a timeline for patients that included time of symptom onset and time of death or survival and it revealed a striking correlation between length of disease and survival: "In general, patients who survived the disease for at least 1 week had a probability of survival of 30%. The rate increased to ~70% for those who survived the first 2 weeks beyond the onset of symptoms." So when were the blood transfusions done? Well, they were done on day 10 post symptom onset. So those patients already had an increased probability of survival.
Fears are growing that the Ebola victim currently in quarantine in Dallas, Texas, could travelled via London's Heathrow airport on his way to the U.S.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the federal agency in charge of public health, has refused to release the flight information for the patient, claiming 'It's just not necessary'.
But Liberia's ministry of information revealed the patient travelled through Brussels on his way to the U.S...There are no direct flights from there to Dallas, so he would have made at least one more transfer. He left Monrovia on Friday, September 19, and arrived in Dallas the following day. American Airlines run regular non-stop flights from Heathrow to Dallas Fort Worth every Saturday.The CDC insisted anyone who shared a flight with the infected man had nothing to fear. 'The ill person did not exhibit symptoms of Ebola during the flights from West Africa and CDC does not recommend that people on the same commercial airline flights undergo monitoring, as Ebola is only contagious if the person is experiencing active symptoms,' the agency said in a statement.

SURVIVAL OUTSIDE HOST: The virus can survive in liquid or dried material for a number of days. Infectivity is found to be stable at room temperature or at 4 C for several days, and indefinitely stable at -70 C. Infectivity can be preserved by lyophilisation.

First and last post here, but I thought I'd just post this link for those that want to take a look that shows Ebola can be transmssible even when asymptomatic,contrary to what the CDC would have people believe,no matter how much of an anomaly or a fluke it is,it's still possible www.msf.org...
