I can tell you why the hospital staff doesn’t wear complete isolation suits and only universal precautions:

If the hospital put their people in isolation suits then everyone would ask the following questions:
1) How bad are “universal precautions” with regard to other virus/bacteria?
2) What are we not being told about this particular virus?
3) If they are in isolation suits, does this mean that ebola has gone airborne?

And lastly, they would have to install staged decon chambers instead of “clean rooms” for each isolated patient. This means added costs……

The less publicity and “experts” they can get talking about how bad ebola really is the better.

deblmm, from what I have seen this strain has a little above 65% fatality rate at the moment.
