It truly is. It's absolutely heartbreaking to consider that in the places where this form of Ebola is running rampant, they're having to send people back home to possibly (probably) infect their loved ones.
Kind of like what they did in Dallas?

Ebola's Frightening Symptoms
Once a patient is infected with Ebola, the incubation period is 4 to 16 days. The onset of disease is sudden, with fever, chills, headache, anorexia, and muscle pain. As the disease progresses, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, stomach pain, and diarrhea are common. Most patients develop severe hemorrhages, usually between days five and seven. Bleeding occurs from multiple sites, including the digestive tract, lungs, and gums. Death occurs within 7 to 16 days.
