Can only star that post once. With their ability to access computers, where is the social media leaks from Family zero other than the religious authorities care and comfort? Total silence.

As I posted in another thread. The nurse in Spain who has become the first person in Spain to contract the virus believes she caught EVD as a result of her hazmat suit touching her face as she was removing it. A person commenting on the ZH article below said it best-- how did this nurse who only touched her hazmat suit briefly contact the virus but the family who was caring for Duncan without protective gear has not gotten it?

He, he, I understand, but I already went on the hysterical mode, now after reading and researching and putting one and one together I am getting my own conclusions, at least for now

I don't deny that I could be wrong and everybody else right.

But I talked to my daughter that is a nurse in Florida and she said that they were not worry about ebola coming to their hospital at all, why? because they were told is a very small chance that it will get there, but nerveless they are ready for it, just in case..

Still, she been a ER and trauma nurse I worry about her safety.

So like others are saying, either what we have been told is truth about the spreading of ebola in the US or is a big cover up by the government.

Either way, eventually we will find out.



Good points.

I just feel that if Nigerias medical system was able to stamp it out... then maybe it isn't all that easy to catch.

It just blows my mind that the Dallas press and national press, which blew the lid off of the complete and utter failure in handling the threat Duncan and this family posed - now knows next to nothing.
How is that possible? Especially with, as Antar suggests -social media, neighbors, medical personnel, LEOs, their families, etc???

Unless it is now being managed exclusively by DHS or another agency....

I guess it could be something like sickle cell anemia which primarily affects those of African descent. While it can affect others, it is much more common in the African community world wide than any other.

I've never been to where this outbreak was in Africa but perhaps sanitation, nutrition, and/or water quality. If it continues to only affect those who have stepped on African soil that would be weird. Viruses aren't usually that sensitive.



I would normally agree with this but the nurse in Spain never went to West Africa.

As some of the other posters pointed out, there's still time for the symptoms to take hold.

I said this same thing on another thread but as someone wisely pointed out: 21 days is not over yet so the family could still get it.

I saw a post somewhere that laid out a good case for why they moved the family - to control the narrative and get the cameras and press off of the story asap.


Seems legit...now we will never really know how things unfold with them?

Can we even be sure they are in a private home/gated community? Where are those neighbors?



Yeah, I said that. But I also should have added the cameras followed them but then stopped so we have no idea if they really are in a gated community.

I have a hard time imagining someone would loan their house to a family exposed to the Ebola virus, especially with the uproar the virus has caused in Dallas And there hasn't been any reporting or any leaks (that I know of) of where the family is.

Maybe they/he knew he had contracted Ebola all along. Of course you would want your family member back in the 1st-World to receive treatment. Has this scenario been discounted? I imagine it's fairly easy to isolate yourself and family members from a single person that you know is infectious (Nurses that are required to be actively caring for people is another thing however)

I've been to some of the nice areas of Dallas and it's suburbs, I can easily envisage a sizeable abode with well manicured lawns and private security not looking out of place. Even private helicopters with no one knowing the movements of the occupants inside whatsoever.

Controlling of the narrative indeed.

Does anyone actually think they are going to tell us of secondary cases voluntarily ntil the absolutely have no alternative? /rhetorical question

In a society with modern medical capabilities Ebola is simply not that much of threat. Unless you are an medical worker that has a chance of being directly exposed to infected blood vomit etc. You could live in the house with somebody with Ebola and as long as you took some basic caution gloves, face mask, cleaning supplies in dealing with where they bleed or throw up you would be unlikely to catch it. In parts of Africa the people not only do not have the ability to take precaustions they simply do not know what to do to begin with.

The first order of business would be to seize control of the situation. Louise was a bit uncontrollable, though, as was Jalla.
Wonder if Andy Cooper will be able to interview them? Will wait with bated breath.

Ok, let get another side to the media ban on the family of the Liberian man in Dallas like it seems to look like

Perhaps the family requested to be taken out of the media circus, they have been taken to a more private area for their own safety and security to be monitored without nobody blaming them for having ties to the Liberian man.

If I was to be in front of the media everyday waiting to drop death in from the cameras, I rather recluse myself and my loves away from prying eyes.

Actually the could not get any hotels to house them after they were evacuated from their apartment,


The family were driven by police to a private residence offered by a volunteer after hotels and flats refused to take them. Sana Syed, a Dallas city spokeswoman said: "No one wants this family.”

I don't blame anybody or business that would not want to be around these family.

A good Samaritan took them.

Right, and the Paparazzi will always comply. Knowing how they do anything to secure pics of celebrities, I doubt the Ebola family could "get away" without the media being complicit.

We are getting precious little info about the family and no interviews. Not even via skype - which could easily be done with zero chance of passing any infection. People in Dallas don't even know where this family is and I'm not sure of the wisdom of that approach.

If the family is fine, why not let them do some Skype interviews? Or just one? Granted, they are devastated at the present time by the loss of Mr Duncan, but on the other hand, it would greatly assuage public concerns if people saw that at least now, they seem to be medically okay.

So, as we have no way of knowing how the family really are we can only go by any reports from "officials". And that's not a comforting thought.

Where I live in Prague, our various "City Hall" districts all own dozens of buildings, including apartments and houses. They can easily find emergency accommodation for people in times of need.

I just find it beyond credible that a city like Dallas has no spare accommodation available and has to rely on a private citizen to offer something.
