This is ridiculous:




A freelance cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia tested positive for Ebola, the network said Thursday.

...

other NBC employees in Liberia are being closely monitored and the other NBC employees that were working with the cameraman were being flown home on a private charter and would put themselves under a 21-day quarantine.

I'm sorry they might be in danger but KEEP THEM THERE. I do not like this.

That isn't fair. The US system can take care of them. They will be monitored and checked.

Thread title is deceiving.

The crew is NOT heading home. They are headed to quarantine. Stick with the facts and quit attention grabbing.

Your response in innacurate. check the other thread that was started. The source states clearly that they are heading back to the US.

Your post is deceiving as they are headed to self imposed quarantine (at home). While I agree they should be allowed to return, I would think they would be put in some kind of mandatory quarantine which also makes an attempt to maintain their dignity.

While a mandatory quarantine may be considered harsh in some sense, it would be the best place to be (in the care of health professionals) should you come down with something.

Yeah. But at the end of the day, the thread title seeks to entice and further the fear and hype

It tries to get people to think that the crew will just head back home and continue with their life. The title gives absolutely notice of the quarantine.

Let's face it. Many people read headlines and extrapolate the story without actually reading articles and facts. This thread title doesn't help spread facts.

Let's face it: all of us are also guily of not reading the full text of linked sources. I'm just as guilty, but would like to point out again that the infected cameraman is coming back to the US.

Believe it or not, the thread title was not meant to infer they were going to their actual homes, just that they were coming home to the states. I apologize for that. It was a lapse in holding to exact language.

That being said, I am still not comfortable with them returning. Having them travel right now is a risk I'm not comfortable with. Keep them where they are for now. It's cold hearted, I know, but it's how I feel.

It's not cold hearted. It's reality. Transporting confirmed ebola cases back to united states, imo, is totally the wrong thing to do.

Quarantine them where they are, and treat them accordingly.

Why would you even risk exposing other people to this. It makes zero sense.
