    Truth is proving to be stranger then fiction. If you were writing this as a doomsday novel you could not write a better story line

    “Confirmed with representatives of the Ministry of Health that they have indeed received a report that there is at least one passenger on board the cruise ship, Carnival Magic, showing symptoms similar to that of the Ebola virus. According to the report made to MOH, the person exhibiting the symptoms did not come ashore today. The ship is reportedly carrying 3652 passengers and a total population of 4633 persons.”

    Reports tonight are that two individuals possibly infected with the Ebola virus are in Belizean waters. Local TV station Channel 7 monitored in the capital City Of Belmopan tonight, reported having credible reports that a couple from a Texas-based cruise ship presently anchored off Belize City, is on a ship tender, unable to return to the cruise ship, while being refused entry to Belize City to catch an air ambulance awaiting at the International Airport to take them to the their country of origin, the U.S.A. The television station in its broadcast tonight said Belize health authorities contacted tonight have so far refused to deny or confirm the report. The patient exhibiting Ebola symptoms has been confirmed to be a nurse at a Dallas hospital traveling with her husband.

    OK so now if this pans out to be true then there is the third nurse infected in Dallas. It is looking more and more like this Ebola virus is a semi-airborne virus, to many nurses got it. This is just getting worse everyday. The chances of Ebola mutating are getting better everyday.

    calm down – according to Washington Post and other the person feels fine no signs of ebola 19 days after ‘maybe’ handling specimens in lab. Not a nurse. Doing this out of abundance of caution quote unquote.
    The cruise line has actively supported CDC’s efforts to speak with the individual, whom the cruise ship’s medical doctor has monitored and confirmed was in good health. Following this examination, the hospital employee and traveling partner have voluntarily remained isolated in a cabin.”’

    On the Fox News it is saying that the person never was in contact with the Ebola patient but may have handled a lab specimen from the Ebola patient so how infectious is this Ebola Virus?

    Lots of conflicting info. She is not necessarily safe being a lab tech. The US army recommends that clinical laboratory personnel are “at significant risk for exposure” and should employ a bio-safety cabinet when available, with barrier and respiratory precautions when handling specimens. USAMRID handbook. I read the lab workers were not using any special protection when handling the specimens. Just the normal level a hospital has against blood born pathogens.

    74, what I am hearing is that she only carried the lab specimen to the lab with gloves and mask.

    Also the lab specimen are sealed when she got them.

    It could easily be a false alarm. This could all have been avoided if the CDC or Surgeon General (who has been a non entity) did their job and restricted entry into the US.

    Yes and if they would have gone into Dallas and told everyone that was close to the Ebola patient to stay where they are at for 21 days not go on planes and cruises!

    Agree. Based on yesterday’s hearings however, they will continue to let 100 to 150 West Africans into the country each and every day so long as they don’t have a fever over the designated limit and they say that they haven’t been in contact with ebola victims. That’s how Mr. Duncan got into the country. If only 1% of the entrants are infected but not yet showing symptoms, that’s 1 or 2 more Duncans coming in every single day. Coming to a town near you soon…..

    Here’s the thing with these “False Alarms” they are like a near miss, an accident inadvertently avoided by sheer luck. Eventually the accident will occur if corrective actions are not employed to eliminate the conditions presenting the hazard. What the CDC is doing is comparable to riding with a drunk driver at night in the rain, with bald tires, no brakes, and no seat belts. You might get home safely if you make the ride one time, but if you do it every day how many trips does it take before you have a wreak?
