....Here's what concerns me. Apparently, he did not have direct contact with the late Mr. Duncan, and was exposed while serving the quarantine court order in the apartment. That is scary and tells me that the shelf life is longer and transmisibillity is easier than we are being told by the CDC. I thought for sure Z+1 would be one of the people that lived I the apartment or one of the paramedics that transported him....
The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in his or her current role rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role.
Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence."
If it's ebola, I hope Judge Jenkins and everyone in charge starts to wake up and realize that arrogance and ignorance are going to mean doom.

If he got it at the apartment but the residents did not then that is very puzzling indeed. We would have to figure out what the trigger is.

Hm, the same complex that was power washed? Where the apartment was again sprayed (doors open/audience watching and breathing)?

IMHO - anyone exposed to Duncan should be in quarantine. And, if this case is accurate, anyone exposed to this new patient should be in quarantined.
FFS! If you are in Dallas and - with good reason - think you have Ebola for Goodness Sakes ...Call the CDC and let someone in a hazmat suit and special ambulance come and take you to a Level 4 hazmat facility! Don't leave your house and expose more people!
1. You can’t get Ebola from a cough or a sneeze
Ebola is not spread through the air we breathe, the water we drink or insect bites. Ebola is spread when the blood or body fluids of someone who is sick with Ebola comes in contact with another person’s broken skin or the mucous membranes in his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
Health care providers caring for Ebola patients and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting sick because they may come in contact with infected blood or body fluids of sick patients.
2. To protect yourself against Ebola, wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
There is no FDA-approved vaccine available for Ebola. Experimental vaccines and treatments for Ebola are under development, but they have not yet been fully tested for safety or effectiveness.
Do not touch the blood or body fluids (like urine, feces, saliva, vomit, sweat and semen) of people who are sick or handle items that may have come in contact with a sick person’s blood or body fluids, like clothes, bedding, needles, or medical equipment.
The deputy had been ordered to go inside the unit with officials to get a quarantine order signed on October 1. No one who entered the apartment that day wore protective gear.
