Did the local authorities make mistakes with Duncan? Absolutely. I never said they didn't; what I observed was that they were being more prudent and appropriately so. Seems to me that you think that they will continue to make mistakes even after the picture showing a nearly covered head to toe possible infected man. I see an improved response process.
To err is human, to forgive is divine.
Its not something one should make errors with is my point. So they cover him up for a photo moment with the press. Of course they do, now. Honestly, its disgraceful to see how lacsidaisical they are being with this. It just does not Iinstill confidence and puts ALL of us at risk who don't even live in Dallas. If you think that's ok then that is your choice. Its not ok.
Yes I do think they will continue to screw up. Its only a matter of time before we hear how they allowed a hundred or so into your airports that infected thousands around the world. Then that will turn into millions.
And how long before news comes out that it isn't just this deputy in Dallas ? If they even divulge the info. Word is, there's more.

In a natural environment, there is no conclusive "fact" that the spread of Ebola among human beings occurs as an airborne virus. In a lab environment it has been demonstrated using aerosol spray, but if you read how this was accomplished you'd see they forced the virus into the poor monkies'(sic) lungs. The graphic depiction of hazmat suits and isolation chambers are not proof that Ebola is spread as an airborne virus. These are precautions being taken for the workers in close PHYSICAL contact with the patient.
Anyone claiming that if you "do the research" you find that human beings can obviously contract Ebola as an airborne virus in the natural environment needs to post better evidence than scary photos.

Here is the research, please provide your evidence that Ebola was forced into the (it's spelled) monkey's lungs.
If you can't then you are being untruthful.
Monkies were anaesthetized with ketamine HCI for the aerosol exposure phase of the experiment...each monkey was placed in dorsal recombency with its head extending through a rubber dam...the monkey was placed in a gas tight environment controlled Hazelton chamber...The nebulizer, driven by compressed air at 20PSI generated an aerosol flow rate of 16.5l/min...After a 10 MINUTE EXPOSURE the Hazelton Chamber was flushed with clean air...
