This is very important because the Ministry of Health in Belize has stood by their claim that the suspected case on board is in fact showing symptoms
The reporter says people are still eating at buffet and enjoying themselves as though nothing is wrong!

My point is that protocols sometimes don't mean jack when a moron is running the show. These incidents at my workplace happened a couple years ago, but still I can't help but shake my head and be a bit frustrated with the companies.
Is that the same as how this guy ignored protocols while working with Ebola? I don't know - But it's just an example of stuff that I've seen first hand (on a slightly different scale, obviously).

The updates on your source's site say that the person is not showing any symptoms and is past the 19 day time period. Plus the person is in quarantine on the ship.
There's too much fear and knee-jerking happening over this Ebola issue.

Let wait two months and then I could either say I told you so, or hey, you were right, right now, is better to be safe than sorry.
Belmopan. October 16, 2014. The Government of Belize was contacted today by officers of the U.S. Government and made aware of a cruise ship passenger considered of very low risk for Ebola. The passenger had voluntarily entered quarantine on board the ship and remains free of any fever or other symptoms of illness. The Ebola virus may only be spread by patients who are experiencing fever and symptoms of illness and so the US Government had emphasized the very low risk category in this case. Nonetheless, out of an abundance of caution, the Government of Belize decided not to facilitate a U.S. request for assistance in evacuating the passenger through the Phillip Goldson International Airport.
Update From Carnival Cruise Lines: John Head, Carnival Senior Cruise Director wrote on his FaceBook Page:
“Late afternoon on Wednesday, Oct. 15., we were made aware by the U.S. CDC of a guest sailing this week on board Carnival Magic who is a lab supervisor at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. At no point in time has the individual exhibited any symptoms or signs of infection and it has been 19 days since she was in the lab with the testing samples. She is deemed by CDC to be very low risk. At this time, the guest remains in isolation on board the ship and is not deemed to be a risk to any guests or crew. It is important to reiterate that the individual has no symptoms and has been isolated in an extreme abundance of caution. We are in close contact with the CDC and at this time it has been determined that the appropriate course of action is to simply keep the guest in isolation on board.”
