If someone has not been exposed to Ebola and shows no symptoms of infection the quarantine is pointless. Ebola can't be spread without showing
symptoms and a disease outbreak needs to be dealt with by the scientific facts not irrational fears.
And you KNOW this how?? You do not know this for certain, because even the CDC does not know this for certain! We have NEVER dealt with this strain
of Ebola before that is one of the main reasons CDC has proven incompetent.. At first they thought this EV was Ebola Zaire BUT it is NOT it is similar
but different....Therefore to use the same guidelines as it relates to infection, contagion, incubation period is MOOT! They have NOT dealt with this
strain Before, which means they are still on a learning curve.....
We know that the past Ebola strains are extremely lethal but have always been able to contain them soon after they begin, what makes this strain
I have studied infectious diseases in the past and I think what they should do if not already is look into when a person becomes contagious!! Not so
much the incubation period....it is my belief that a person is contagious the moment they are infected NOt when they begin to show symptoms......So if
a person is asymptomatic and has been infected then this would explain the high rate at which this disease is spreading not the mode of which the
There is no reason at all that anyone in the medical profession would not adhere to common sense!! If you have been around people with Ebola then you
keep your arse in your house and do NOT leave for anything!!
Especially if this woman works for the CDC she knows this!! Telling a person to stay isolated in their home who has been exposed to a level 4 virus
possibly the deadliest on the planet is a violation of their civil liberties???? What about MY liberties and millions of others???? she is NOT in
jail!! she has the comforts of her own bed and her internet, TV, phone whatever else.....Its 21 days and personal i think it should be for 48!!!
Fearbola?? Perhaps you need to be reminded of what this disease does to the human body!! I am not going to post it here but look up Richard
Preston's Hot Zone!! The first chapter will smack you back into reality!!
Even the Nurses that cared for Duncan in Dallas have been quoted as having nightmares due to what they witnessed this man go through......Am I afraid
of this spreading in our country?? Well Hell Yes I am and if you are not then you need to take your head out of the sand and quit trivializing this
horrific disease......There is no cure and there wont be a vaccine for years!! Prevention is the key!!
