Your right...much ado about nothing...unless a plane coming in to Newark from Brussels with 255 passengers being greeted by the CDC because 2 of those passengers are exhibiting Ebola symptoms and believed to be from Liberia.
Check a couple of posts above for link.

Is the article saying that they are now looking into the possibility this child actually contracted Ebola? Can you tell us more since the link no longer works?

If they treat him, and he recovers completely (they could cure him) there will be thousands that will do anything and everything they can to get in the USA, people just like him, who have been exposed, or are infected...
Maybe they will let him die?
Federal officials confirmed Saturday that the suspected Ebola patient at the District of Columbia’s Howard University hospital does not have the fatal disease and reiterated their top priority is protecting Americans, amid widespread concerns about a confirmed Ebola case in Dallas.
Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the federal government is looking at different safety-related suggestions from Capitol Hill and beyond, but he suggested the key is to control the deadly virus where it started overseas, not limiting entry to the United States.
“Though we might wish we can seal ourselves off from the world, there are Americans who have the right of return and many other people that have the right to enter this country,” Frieden said at a press conference Saturday. “We're not going to be able to get to zero risk no matter what we do unless we control the outbreak in West Africa.”

Jenkins is on the ballot in November. It appears he is dying to be re-elected. Maybe in his mind Ebola exposure=media exposure. He should be placed on leave of absence like the deputies who were sent into the apartment and quarantined. Bag his clothes and secure the vehicle too.
He is now a potential bio-hazard.
