at least three Dallas Fire and Rescue emergency medical technicians were being monitored and were in isolation at home, although they, as well as the other adults under observation, were free to leave their homes because they were not being quarantined. The medics helped transport Mr. Duncan to the hospital on Sunday. Even the emergency vehicle that was used — Ambulance No. 37 — is in isolation and not in service, officials said.

It's not really as difficult as you think. They should stop all flights out of infected countries to ANY other country.
Only specific approved flights for relief efforts should be permitted out of the affected countries, and they should be strictly monitored and controlled.

they are confident because the cure is here, see they got the vaccine, nothing to worry about, just waiting for the people outrage when the infection goes beyond Texas borders.
I am sure that the doses are ready to be shipped to every state in the nation, hell let get the littler children, pregnant women and the elderly first.
The despicable way in whish American corporate elite money, we are all expendable until the want to save us.
Because let face it, a none working economy doesn't produce anything, if we all infected, soo they will wait for the right moment to tells us we all going to be cure

Paging Dr. Whatshisname
Speaking of all this, does anyone remember the name of that psycho Dr. who proposed spreading ebola to cure the world of overpopulation? I can't find it...
Overall, in Pianka’s speech he gave his vision of what could happen if steps were not taken to curb and reduce population growth. The scientist used the Ebola virus as an example of how a population could be reduced naturally and that is when conspiracy theorists attacked and misquoted his statements about Ebola and overpopulation.

The next couple of months will be interesting.
Ebola Victim Thomas Eric Duncan's Nephew: I Had to Call CDC
The first person diagnosed with the Ebola virus in the U.S. wasn't appropriately treated for suspected infection until after a relative personally called the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...
...Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, was initially sent home from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas when he showed up on Sept. 26 complaining of fever and abdominal pain. He had to return two days later in an ambulance.
That was the day "I called CDC to get some actions taken, because I was concerned for his life and he wasn't getting the appropriate care," Duncan's nephew, Josephus Weeks, told NBC News on Wednesday night. "I feared other people might also get infected if he wasn't taken care of, and so I called them to ask them why is it a patient that might be suspected of this disease was not getting appropriate care?"
...Weeks said the CDC referred him to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which spoke to him and then took appropriate action. "I called the CDC and they instructed me of the process, and that got the ball rolling," Weeks said.
A CDC spokesman told NBC News the agency could neither confirm nor deny Weeks' account. The hospital did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
