Two people with symptoms similar to the Ebola virus were taken by Fire Department ambulances to a Manhattan hospital, sources said Monday.

Both patients were picked up at a New York City address and both are believed to have recently returned to the city from Africa, the sources said.

The two — both believed to be adults — were put into isolation at Bellevue Hospital.

I hope these people test negative. We all know the close proximity of people in NYC make Ebola extremely dangerous. I really hope we wake up one day and this all turns out to be a nightmare.

NYC is filthy, it would spread there like wildfire. Walk down the streets it's garbage, urine, feces, the smell of sewage, dirty bathrooms, dirty transportation, filthy surfaces (ATMs, money, credit cards, Average Joe's hands). NYC is like a farm, people are herded from the subway to Starbucks. It's very very easy for something like Ebola to spread. Take it from a New Yorker, DeBlasio won't do a thing, Schumer won't do a thing and the gov won't do a thing. All our advancements and the streets still smell like Deadwood 1870.

All of these mind-frick cases make it seem all the more necessary to simply quarantine people at the source before they fly into the U.S. or STOP the flights all together.

Seriously - someone crunch those numbers. Somewhere I read that the U.S. receives about 150 people per day from the affected areas. I doubt seriously that many of them are gainfully employed, tax-paying people of the U.S. Some sure, like returning doctors, missionaries or profesionsals, etc. Others are just visitors or are trying to immigrate, like Duncan.

How much is each of these incidences of suspected Ebola costing the local, state and federal governments? How much does it cost the airplines/airposts to screen/train/clean/prep?

Versus the economic potential of flights from the affected areas?

I bet we would be shocked.

They won't shut the borders or restrict flights because they have to be PC.

Guess we should have helped West Africa when it was still possible to stop. If we make it through this hopefully we learn something from it. Stop playing us vs them games. We're all human.

It has nothing to do with PC this is what they want you to believe. It is about money and power this is the real reason.

That's a hazmat suit? Doesn't look right to me. Holy eff, will they EVER get this right?

And the money and power is dominating money and power with PC nonsense.

That an awful lot of exposed skin on that person on the right.
Different foot coverings as well.
That's frightening if that's what they're wearing around patients.

NYC is many things, has many problems (yes DeBlasio, I mean you) but, seriously man, you make it sound like a third world city. You clearly don't live here so I'm guessing you live in some suburban paradise and, when you do come to the city, you dread it which, to me, is sad. Yes, there's some trash on the streets (thanks global warming awarness day!) but there's trash on streets everywhere and, guess what, the majority of the people I see tossing crap on the street turn out to be tourists.

If (when) ebola does find its way to NYC, it will be a terrifying situation given the volume of people passing through the city each day.

I live in Brooklyn and yes it is filthy. I don't know if you can't smell it but the place is like a 3rd world country.

If not now, then later. Meaning, until we ban flights in and out of infected countries, with the exception of humanitarian and health aid workers, this thing is going to insert itself into urban areas all around the world, and spread.

I read an article after Duncan died, from a person in Liberia that knew, him, no only this person explain what happen in Liberia with Duncan but also that is hundreds and hundreds of Liberians right now that will do anything and pay anything to get a visa to get into the US right now

The article is very interesting, very incredible and credible at the same time.

What's wrong with this picture is that these poor healthcare workers, unlike CDC workers, are not wearing level 4 Biodefense gear. 'Nuf said.

That's quite the large brush your using to paint a smelly picture. I live in Manhattan, in the 50's and the smell is fine. I even wake up to the sound of birds in the warmer months and I'm not talking about the flying rats the tourists call pigeons.

If there's a case in NYC, tracking down everyone that came in contact with the infected could be a logistical nightmare.

Thankyou I bought it in Manhattan! And I figured you lived in one of the "nice" areas. I know the police make sure the smell doesn't reach your noses

I can remember when you DID NOT go to Times Square unless you wanted a fake ID or to see a sex show.

Now it has a freakin M&M store.

New York City is one of the cleanest, safest cities on the planet and people who actually live, work and/or spend time there know this.
