I can not blame them, I rather take the trip looking for an opportunity to survive than dying doing nothing.
i cant blame them either. i would do the same thing if i were in that situation.

What part of NC?
As near as I can tell when I threw together my coincidences thread, about 30 minutes from Charlotte, where, agaon as near as I can tell, the Brantly family is in seclusion...or was until Brantly started galivanting around to DC and Nebraska. I still smell scapegoat/coverup.
Army critical care nurses are vital in the biologic medical defense against unidentified infectious diseases, accidental occupational exposures, or intentional dispersion of weaponized biologic agents.

Please don't become a doctor. That's exactly what's wrong with our healthcare system in America, and why so many people die/suffer from medical treatment. Too many people working in healthcare (from doctors to administrators to insurers) for ALL the wrong reasons.

Although Mukpo isn't sure how he was infected, he told his father that it's possible he was exposed when he was spray washing a car in which someone had died to disinfect it. That can expose people to Ebola, if blood or other fluids splash up and get into a person's eyes, Britigan said.
Flashbacks to powerwashing vomit off the sidewalk in front of the apartment where Mr. Duncan stayed, anyone?

Ebola in Spain: Nurse 'infected in Madrid'
A Spanish nurse who treated an Ebola victim in Madrid is thought to be the first person to have contracted the virus outside Africa, health officials say.
The nurse tested positive for Ebola in initial tests and doctors are awaiting final results, according to reports.
She was part of the team that treated Spanish priest Manuel Garcia Viejo, who died of Ebola on 25 September.
The nurse was admitted to hospital on Monday morning with a high fever, Spanish newspaper El Pais said.
Doctors isolated the emergency treatment room, the report said.
Well, at least they isolated her and didn't send her home with antibiotics. I wonder how long she'd been symptomatic, how she got to the hospital, etc.

Ebola Outbreak: India Monitoring Possible New Ebola Victim From Japan
Yuko was planning to tour Manipur, but her trip was cut short when she began to exhibit symptoms of a potential Ebola infection. After tests for more common illnesses came up negative at Imphal’s hospital, doctors sent blood samples to India’s National Institute of Virology to be tested for Ebola, The Hindu reported.
If she's found to be positive for Ebola, Indian health officials may decide to have her moved to the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal, because it has an isolation ward, which Imphal’s J.N. Institute of Medical Sciences, where she's currently being held, does not, according to India’s Z News service. Z News added that Indian officials may decide to screen visitors to Manipur for the Ebola virus infection.
