Regardless if the decision was made by higher ups they still should have refused treatment in the USA. Its not fair to the rest of the nation. This would be like me going to work knowing I have TB and hoping I don't spread it. They can wear all the space suits in the world but all it takes is one tiny mistake and this thing will blow. I don't trust the CDC at all giving the recent events with the anthrax samples they didnt properly handle. What makes you think they can handle this. Also I used to work for the hospital where the patients are currently being kept so I know how incompetent their employees can be. While doing a quarantine of Africa now would not help if they had done this earlier then we might have a chance.
Ok then explain to me why the isolation unit is at most 2 whole rooms away from the Cafeteria of that hospital? I have a reliable source that works there that has seen the patients. The area they are kept is not far enough away from the rest of the hospital. Not sure if thats a design flaw or just they chose to put them there. When the ###### hits the fan we shall see. Also to those who keep mentioning zombies, you do know that the ebola virus was used to create the T-Virus in the resident evil/bio hazard game series. http://residentevil....com/Ebola_virus I am not saying thats going to happen but you never know.
Its not me posting a source just me posting something thats kind of related. The whole story of Resident Evil/BioHazard was based on them trying to weaponize Ebola. Given how corrupt government is these days I wouldn't put it past them to want to find a way to leak this for testing purposes of course.
With this string of comments it leads me to call BS on you having any medical related role what-so-ever and also as stated various times before the Ebola virus can only spread from bodily fluid transfer (e.g intercourse) or them having a open wound (likely due to the symptoms of the virus) and you having an open wound and then you both rub each others open wounds transferring blood and other bodily fluids. (e.g In some tribal burials its customary to touch the dead persons body, if the person doing the touching has an open wound on their hand like a small cut of some sort they are likely to also catch the virus).
So the likeliness of Ebola spreading throughout the US just because the two US citizens were brought back for better medical care is basically zero even if the hospital staff are completely incompetent.
It's not like the flu where it is airborne and you can sneeze on someone and they can catch it also, its similar to HIV(AIDS), Hep A, B and C, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and many others.
As for the Resident Evil comments. Zombies are a story plot created for entertainment, not a real life scenario governments are trying to recreate...
