Lost of control was quite obvious. IMHO

Doctor looked scared and Jenkins were swallowing in the background quite a bit.



Yes, I caught this, too. He was licking his lips an awful lot. I know that when I'm scared or nervous my mouth goes completely dry and I lick my lips and gulp a lot!

Also, there was no thanking anyone for doing a terrific job. Obviously.

Someone who knows the health worker (who tested positive) has been put into quarantine proactively (before this new person was confirmed to have it).

In other words, this person does not have it yet. Just the health care worker. This new person is just a contact of the health care worker and was placed into quarantine as a preventative measure.

Just to claifiy,this was one of the people that was caring for Duncan AFTER he was put in isolation. From CNN:
" The worker was involved in Duncan's second visit to the hospital, when he was admitted to treatment, and was wearing protective gear."

Here's a link to the CDC Checklist for Patients being Evaluated for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the United States.

Regardless of gender, if this nurse has had any sexual contact, chances are she passed it on. And if (notice I say IF) she was promiscuous, she passed it on to others who will pass it on to their next lover.

I don't think that we have reached the point of the straw breaking the camel's back just yet, but the straw is piling up nonetheless.

They just said they were going to monitor the Duncan family more closely. I call BS on this!


Me too.

OMG.

Sad to say, there may well be others. I hope not but from the way the entire thing was bungled...plus we are not even close to being out of the 21 day window.

I also hope that - now - people will stop calling each other paranoids and fear-mongerers and fracking *DO SOMETHING* to curb this outbreak.

Wow this is really bad! So considering it was at the same hospital as Duncan, was it someone who was treating him then?? Maybe now they will realise hazmat gear is NOT going to help them from being infected. This is bad i really hope that person hasn't been going about their daily life spreading it!


His first visit was misdiagnosed so they probably weren't wearing any kind of protection!

This is terrible!


Apologies, I have not read through this whole thread yet, but obviously this doctor must have come in contact with the infected patients bodily fluids since that is the only way this can spread, right?

Yes. I am being sarcastic.

Wow. I am starting to wonder if the CDC is being completely forthright in their description of possible modes of transfer for this virus.

From what I've read they didn't do squat...now no one can find any info about the family of Duncan.

Yeah I caught that too. Does this mean Jessie Jackson has been carting them around with him for his 15 mins of fame he can milk out of them?

Funny you should mention that. The Daleks are actually helping us out this time... cleaning ebola up for us.


As panic starts to spread about Ebola, there are some US hospitals taking precautionary measures to combat this new threat - by using an Ebola-killing robot. The robot - made by Xenex Disinfection Services - is being used in 250 hospitals, including the Dallas hospital where the first US Ebola victim died.
