I'll be honest this information totally changes my thoughts about this nurse, and reinforces my lack of trust of the cdc. I honestly thought that state and local health officials were competent enough to deal with an Ebola patient or two. I was wrong about that.
I have serious concerns about putting the military in charge of issues that should be able to be handled by civilian authorities, but when to date the civilian authorities have done nothing but eff it up, I have to revisit that thought. I feel like the NBC training i received as a combat arms grunt in the Army damn near twenty years ago better prepared me for a decon than these nurses have, it's time to say to hell with appearances put USAMRIID in charge of the response.

Remember, just this morning, Tom Frieden threw her under the bus, giving the impression that she'd acted recklessly on her own. What's the world to believe? I bought his story, and I don't have any respect for Freaky.
Once again, the blame-game circled back and bit him on the arse.

If they're not competent enough to handle 1 they're not competent enough to handle the hypothetical 1,000.

How does this fit into the timeline with the first nurse and the subsequent isolation of the 70 or so staff members who worked on Duncan? I thought they all went into isolation? I've lost track.

Just a little correction please to your title? We learned in med school...everyone has a TEMPERATURE all the time, everyday! But, not everyone has a FEVER (elevated temperature)!
We used to get yelled at for saying that!
