This is amusing to an extent, although, I do sincerely fear for those on board. I never want to see anyone fall ill to Ebola, let alone spread it to (possibly) large amounts of other people. The only reason it's amusing is because I'm very curious to see how the whole Ebola issue will play out over the next several years. Will we find a cure? or will it kill off a large percentage of the worlds population? (Excuse my sensationalism)
Anyway, what would their options be? Quarantine the ship, and test everyone on board before they were allowed to leave?
On an insensitive note: This might make a good plot for a movie.
Thanks for sharing.

I would still like to know how this all played out.
We have a lab tech that may or may not have handled Duncan lab specimens that goes on a cruise.
Obviously, there was no intention of self quarantine prior to embarking on the cruise.
What prompted this person to self quarantine partway through the cruise?

That's way too logical, marg.
The thing is, they KNOW and always KNEW what they had to do and didn't. So I call criminal at this point. Maybe that's why a freaking lawyer was appointed the ebola czar. I'm so disgusted by the handling of this entire thing I could spit.

...she may not even have known she was handling the Ebola patient's blood in the lab.
