I am hoping and praying that the photo is of some other occurrence. If it is not, Dallas is in a world of hurt.

I'm guessing that the photo was taken after the ambulance left, and the maintenance crew did what they do, not knowing how their lives were about to change.



I think this was today. The time stamp is 1 hour ago. Many in Dallas are not happy about this. Like I said, if you read the comments from the locals, it really does give you a pretty good insight of what people are thinking and feeling.

WFAA is a pretty reliable station, and they really do have very good investigating journalist working for them.

If this photo was taken outside patient z's apartment, it tells a grim story.

Patient Z's family could face criminal charges if they violate the Control Order.

Texas health officials have placed the Dallas family of a Liberian national infected with Ebola under quarantine and ordered them not to leave their home or have any contact with outsiders for 21 days without approval of the local or state health department.The "control order" also requires the family of Thomas Eric Duncan to be available to provide blood samples and agree to any testing required by public health officials. Officials said Thursday that the four or five family members could face criminal charges for violating the order, which was delivered to them in writing Wednesday evening.

Sadly I don't know.

I really hope they did capture a picture from a different location, but WFAA is usually quite on the ball, and not prone to doom porn.

Duncan's boss claimed he worked for the company for a year or two. Doesn't he know?

So now it comes out that they didn't even contact people that worked in the same ambulance Duncan rode in, even those who worked it on the same day!

It will be a miracle if there are no more cases in Dallas other than Duncan. And we could use a miracle about now on all of this.

here is a little more info about him lying on the health questionaire at the airport

" Liberian authorities, meanwhile, said on Thursday that they will prosecute Duncan when he returns home for allegedly lying on his airport departure screening questionnaire about having had contact with an infected person."

you know, people are desperate they will lie to come here to get better treatment....just think when the drs here told him he had the flu or something and sent him on his merry way with antibiotics he must have been really relieved and of course he would believe them (because otherwise he has something horrible)

who among us wouldn't cling to that belief that we don 't have ebola if we were in the same circumstance.....and yes he should have gone straight to the hospital when he got here, but, I think he waited until symptoms showed up so they would have to treat him.

All I can say is that ABC news reported that Duncan's boss said he does not know why Duncan just walked off the job in early September. Probably only the boss and Duncan know whether that is true. But if it is true, it raises some questions I would think.

Edit to add: On first glance I thought you meant, 'doesn't he know why Duncan walked off?' But if you meant 'doesn't he know how long Duncan worked there?' Then you are right. But maybe he just didn't bother checking his records.

Can you catch it if you have already had it?

Imagine, if he survived and was sent back and ended up catching it again.

Generally no. If your immune system somehow successful fends off a virus, it will generate antibodies to quickly deal with that specific mutation of Ebola. If somehow during the replication process the virus mutates, then yes a person has a chance of getting the disease again.

I just heard on Fox News (hey i'm a Neal Cavuto fan, don't judge! LOL) that they just pulled 3 more students out, bringing the total to 8 students.


When my daughter was 3 she was exposed to viral meningitis. The incubation period is roughly the same. I was terrified the entire time. Like barter with God and the Devil terrified. I just can't imagine having to go through that waiting period with ebola.

If he threw up outside and it sat any amount of time I believe that the virus is already out. According to this from the CDC, domestic dogs can and are infected by the Ebola virus. I haven't looked up about cats but I would assume since monkeys, bats, rats and dogs can contract it then most animals can.

The reason I bring this up is if you have ever seen an animal around vomit, they always seem to taste, eat, smell or touch it. I would bet there is some kind of animal that has come in contact with it. The CDC needs to monitor all vets as well as hospitals. If a dog is carrying it and the owner cleans up the waste, then they were exposed. Not to mention rat or mouse droppings in produce, food, etc.

While news like this is concerning, it is good to hear they are doing SOMETHING about the situation with the children. Bless their hearts, they must be terrified... if they are of age to understand.

Did anyone else get from the news conference on CNN today that reporters, in pursuit to get the story, were paying people to move into the apartment complex ? One of the "authoritarian figures" warned the media not to make things worse there, alluding to the details I just stated, though it was kind of ambiguous. I could have misunderstood what they were alluding to.

Though I couldn't blame the reporters, they're on the front lines, saving lives by getting the facts out. The "authorities" sure aren't giving us the truth.

Investigative reporters are surely not asking enough questions. The reason I wondered why the former boss gave such a vague employment history for Duncan was because when quoted in another source he appeared to know much more about Duncan, including something of his personal life:



For the past year, Mr. Duncan had worked as a driver at Safeway Cargo, the Liberian customs clearance agent for FedEx, said Henry Brunson, the company’s manager. In an office with a large FedEx sign outside the building in downtown Monrovia, Mr. Brunson said that Mr. Duncan quit abruptly on Sept. 4, giving no reason. But Mr. Brunson said he knew that Mr. Duncan had family members in the United States as well. “His sister came from the United States and he asked for a day off so that he could go meet her at the Mamba Point Hotel,” Mr. Brunson said, mentioning a hotel popular among foreigners. “He quit a few weeks after that.”
