Surely they disinfected that area afterward? Just in case, right?

How effective is thermal scanning at airports?


Thermal scanning at airports detects less than 1 in 5 passengers arriving from a 12 hour flight who are infected with the new coronavirus, according to preliminary estimates from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).



Using this information, combined with data on the sensitivity of thermal scanners, the LSHTM team used a mathematical model to estimate that for every 100 infected travellers planning to take a 12 hour flight, only 9 will be detected at entry screening upon arrival.

I was just thinking that alot of wealthy private elites who may be infected do not fly commercial. They charter private planes and circumvent large busy airports such as landing on a private air fields with no screening. If some wealthy American businessman is stuck over in China you can bet he'll pay any sum to fly out under the radar so to speak.

Now there's a Cruise Ship with 7000 passengers on lock down .Source


They have been cleared as the original passengers they were concerned about tested negative.


If the turnaround time for these tests is now less than 24 hours should we have a lot more updates from some of the pending cases that have been first documented almost a week ago now? I'm really confused about this since we've heard a few instances of quick results now


Agreed. I am concerned as we aren’t hearing a lot about how many people have been cleared by the number of those under investigation keeps going up. I don’t know what is taking so long for some of these reports (in countries who aren’t overloaded).

Well the sidewalk outside the Ebola apartment in Dallas was cleaned with a power washer by some contractor.

Maybe they sprayed some fabulouso or febreeze and called it good?

wow... they were warned, they said they were prepared...
How does a doctor still manages to become infected?



All it takes is one lapse with anything, but if this particular doctor is one of the first to see the patient or even one not dealing with the patient and someone else's lapse caught him ... It happens.

And it will happen.

There were health care professionals who caught Ebola too, and that one is even more of a sure killer.

They may be prioritizing based on likelihood of infection, severity of illness, etc.

We're still waiting to hear about the status of the case in Lawrence. That is supposed to be known by tomorrow.

It may also be that negative results is more of a local thing, and the constant high number of cases reflects new cases while old cases are simply dropped without being reported on.

True, but after so many health care workers got Ebola, the WHO and CDC spared no time and effort to educate the entire healthcare system better. More and better information, extra education, Simulation exercises, etc... They should be better prepared now then two years ago.

(or should I not believe what Netflix's "Pandemic" is telling me?)

You can educate all you want, but you can't make people learn.

How many of us seriously don't know how to get AIDS, and yet how many end up with it even so? Same with unintended pregnancy?

This was done before the announcement of the human to human in Chicago, but it does mention something that may explain some of the testing delay. There is a shortage of test kits which would make sense. I don't know if that's just in China, but it might explain why some of these tests are taking longer to get to.

I wouldn’t doubt they did some duty free shopping while they were waiting.

What a facepalm decision.
