The incompetence and lack of understanding by our leaders concerning ebola continues as Texas ‘orders’ possible contagious family members of ebola carrier to ‘stay home’. This is insane. They can walk out of the house whenever they want because there is no guards to prevent this and you can bet, since Mr. Duncan did this to us, they will be just as irresponsible. Enforced confinement has to have some teeth or it fails. It looks like the CDC was called by family member begging for help and then this forced the hospital in Dallas to take patient back in.

In this year 1348 in Melcombe, in the county of Dorset, a little before the feast of St. John the Baptist [that is, around the 25th June 1348], two ships, one of them from Bristol came alongside. One of the sailors had brought with him from Gascony the seeds of the terrible pestilence and through him the men of that town of Melcombe were the first in England to be infected.
All it takes is one person to do this. We have to fear this because the government won’t use more forceful measures to stop the spread of very contagious diseases like this one: Ebola Patient’s Family Ordered to Stay Home for Two Weeks – NBC News.com
Texas health officials have ordered four family members who had contact with the Dallas Ebola patient to stay home and not have visitors to prevent the potential spread of disease. The order, hand delivered to Thomas Eric Duncan’s relatives Wednesday night by Texas Department of Health Services officials, legally requires the family to comply until at least Oct. 19, when the incubation period has passed and the family is no longer at risk of having the disease. The order also requires the family to be available to provide blood samples and agree to any testing required by public health officials.
Meanwhile, Ebola Patient’s Texas Contacts Zoom to 80, Authorities Say which is a gross understatement since it doesn’t include people in contact while this man was traveling. He knew for certain that he was very much exposed to this disease because he took the woman dying of it to a specific ebola hospital where they turned her away because they are overwhelmed.
This also means that the system set up there is in total failure now as the number of cases rises exponentially. The official number is grossly out of whack due to them counting only ‘official’ cases while bodies accumulate in the streets and hidden in various huts and homes. We have zero statistics for the countryside. No idea at all what is going on there.
Something is different in this outbreak. It isn’t dying off quickly but literally traveling all over the place. The previous lack of seriousness in stopping this disease should turn into a level of panic because this is something we should be in a panic, not ‘ho hum’.
The fact that this U.S. Ebola Patient Vomited ‘All Over the Place,’ Witness Tells Reuters should be real scary since we know that even and especially doctors and nurses are dying of this disease that it is highly contagious, not somewhat contagious. It has jumped the shark. On NBC where this news about the vomit appeared they also had this reporter saying we shouldn’t fear this disease because we have to touch or clean up vomit, for example, to get it…wait!
This is happening now! That is, the vomit. Who touched it? If in the hospital, is the staff who dealt with it in isolation now or spreading the disease within the hospital? No answers to that pressing question. Ebola Patient Thomas Eric Duncan’s Nephew: I Had to Call CDC – NBC News.com. Turns out the Texas hospital turned this man into the streets due to him having no insurance.
Seriously. The CDC then ordered them to take back the patient. Amazing, isn’t it? We have this strange healthcare system which will collapse if we have an epidemic here with the poor unattended as if they are in Africa. No insurance=no care. The government is also figuring out how to dispose of waste from ebola patients. Which is considerable since everything has to be incinerated thoroughly!
They should be treated in tents, for example, so they don’t infect entire hospitals. But we won’t see that, either, I am betting. This is 100 times more contagious than AIDS. No one got AIDS from touching sweat, tears or vomit!
