No?
Maybe I'm hoping this will give us some needed population control...

They changed their title three times since I posted. Now it is just saying she has relatives who work at Kent State.

Apologies if this question has been raised...I was home for a bit this morning (took in a few minutes of CNN, including the demonstration by Sanjay Gupta about the "protective" clothing being worn per CDC protocols and how removing it can cause SIGNIFICANT contamination)...

But I was also trying to scroll through the posts here and saw some speculating that perhaps the virus isn't "shedding" substantially until late in the game, when the patient is terribly sick. But I still cannot fathom how Duncan's family members aren't showing signs of sickness...

Yes, it's possible he self-quarantined from the family. Yes, it's possible that the virus isn't as highly contagious until the late stages of the disease. But when he was taken to the hospital the second time he was vomiting - enough that he vomited outside the apartment. He MUST have had some vomiting INSIDE the apartment, some diarrhea INSIDE the apartment...and how did the family deal with those bodily fluids (sorry to be graphic here...but I think we're past the point of worrying about peoples' delicate sensibilities!)...

These people are just poor, average, ordinary folks...living in humble circumstances...much less capable of coping with illness and contamination, bodily wastes, etc. than a hospital and trained health-care professionals...

And yet none of them are sick and two poor nurses now are down with the virus. Yes, I understand the nurses were dealing with the end-stages of the disease and all of the attendant...um...ICK. But there had to be at least SOME "ick" in the apartment. I'm not buying, at all, that his family won't end up with problems.


Also: Texasgirl...you are in my thoughts and prayers, girlfriend!! And everyone in the Dallas area. As I was watching CNN and the horror of the experience of these two poor (front-line warrior) nurses was sinking in, I'm sorry, but I can't help placing the blame for all of this squarely on Thomas Duncan. I know he's dead, and I'm sorry he died of Ebola, but what he did in bringing this disease into Dallas and that hospital is wrong, wrong, wrong. There are people paying for his actions that shouldn't have to.



Thank you. We here are holding on but the news just keeps getting worse.

And I wanted to add that the Dallas Deputy who tested negative told his wife, Lisa, that there were violent vomit messes INSIDE the apartment. I will be absolutely amazed if Louise Troh does not get Ebola.

The hysteria is strong in this thread!
I get the feeling half of you would start sacrificing Duncans family, the nursing staff and the CDC to some demonic power if it will make the badness go away. Take a deep breath people, you are still more likely to be shot today then catch Ebola tomorrow.


Answers:
-Ebola won't get to the US.

-If it would by chance get to the US, our hospitals can handle it.

-The CDC has got this all under control.

Oh, and

You can't get it by sitting next to someone on a bus.

Responses to Answers:

Whew.

Oh, good, no worries then.

That makes me feel SO much better.

I think I'll plan a bus trip.

Thats the 24 hr news cycle for you. When I first saw the article that said a second case was confirmed the article didntconfirm it. It was vague and weird and had a quote from gupta saying it was concerning. I was trying to make a thread on it then it finally changed, just the article not tge title, to say a sexond caae was confirmed.

Its gone from second case, false reports it was pham's boyfriend on alt media sites, then the plane drom cleveland, her name released, then shes being flown to ATL. They are digging hard on this story. So we will see incorrect information.

You all know she had a low grade fever on the plane ride back to Dallas, right? I have been trying to catch up with this thread. My local news reported she was, in fact, ill on the way home to Dallas!

What can I say, Flyers, the woman, just like Duncan were carrying biological weapons and they didn't give a crap who they infected in their way, Nurse Pham is the only hero in this tragedy.

The second nurse in my opinion is a terrorist!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the feeling that the CDC is taking her to Emory due to possible safety reason no for her health but the people that she infected knowingly are going ask for her darn stupid head.

I notice they are referring to her in the past ... 'she LIVED at the Village' ...

I fully expect the next infographic put out by the CDC will show 'Happy Smiley' ebola patients lining up for their government approved experimental vaccine.

Along the same lines as this:

I heard them do that earlier today. "She dedicated her life to nursing..." ................. I wasn't going to say anything.

Okay, when did they change the temperature of concern from 101.5 ( I think that's what I kept hearing) to 100.4 ? Sanjay Guptu just said, on CNN, in a discussion that 100.4 is the temperature of concern.

Idk, but if she does survive I would imagine it would be hard for her to find an apartment for rent. Yeah, I jest but it will be her new reality until she is forgotten.

Cleveland has activated emergency command center due to Ebola patient who took flight from Cleveland to Dallas

But,...there is no need to be alarmed.

Perhaps her stage of infection is worst that we may imagine, perhaps some people get ebola in a worst way than others, for what I read on the articles today nurse Pham is doing well after the transfusion

If the second nurse doesn't make it, I will have to bring the issue of ethnicity and the implications of ebola on some people and not on others.

This will not be good news for me, I may be latina but I also happen to be of mixed race

Is going to be a very interesting issue and topic.

Director Frieden just confirmed it is Nurse Vinson who is being transferred to Emory. He also said, "she should not have traveled."


Oh sure, OK. Good thing we banned commercial flights out of the affected countries.

Oh wait, nevermind.
