This guy was just in the apartment, unprotected of course. The timing is right on schedule. Authorities must be hiding the family because they are way over due.
The patient, Michael Monnig, was transported from a Frisco Care Now facility where he was complaining of “stomach issues,” according to sources.
Monnig’s children told CBS 11’s Andrea Lucia that their dad woke up this morning feeling sore and a little nauseated.
“We were told by federal officials, county officials that you would have to come in direct contact with Duncan or direct contact with bodily fluids, and he did not,” said Monnig’s son, Logan, about the possibility of his dad contracting Ebola. Logan said it’s a very scary time for his family, but they do not expect that his dad will test positive for the virus.October 8, 2014 at 10:07 pm #26409
Dallas News Channels are beating this thing to death. SOS. No one knows anything other than what 74 wrote.

Pretty soon anyone with the flu will be worried that they have ebola. The CDC, and the government should never have allowed anyone from West Africa to enter the country without quarintine procedures.October 9, 2014 at 7:52 pm #26469
“Macedonia seals hotel after Briton dies of suspected Ebola”
It’s time to watch for and stay away from sick people. This man was sick with symptoms 7 days in Briton and 7 days in the hotel. Hope he didn’t use a lot of common areas. He probably spread ebola on a wide scale.
A Health Ministry official said the man had arrived in the capital, Skopje, from Britain on Oct. 2October 9, 2014 at 10:33 pm #26473
Ebola Could Be ‘World’s Next AIDS,’ CDC Director Warns! What is happening? They were saying that Ebola was no problem and now it will be as big as AIDS!
“Ebola is spreading with such speed that it could become a global pandemic to rival AIDS if action isn’t taken now, one of the U.S.’s top health officials has warned. ”
Now this is an alarm that it is bigger then what they have been telling us.October 9, 2014 at 10:37 pm #26474
A vexing mystery in Spain: How did a nurse contract Ebola?
I like to know this to, how did she get it. She entered two times, the nurse wore personal protective equipment. So what happen?October 10, 2014 at 12:35 am #26480
freedom, having worked in biomedical research, I know that contagious diseases need very little opportunity to infect a host. For example, although we were protected during operations, every time we removed our PPE we took the risk of exposing ourselves to disease if we were not meticulously careful in the manner in which we removed the gear.
I suspect that could have been the transmission vector for the nurse. She was protected while treating or examining the patient, but her PPE became a carrier of the disease so all she had to do is make one small error to expose herself to the ebola virus while removing the PPE. Not a good situation to be sure. It also demonstrates that the CDC and other governmental agencies lie to us as to the reality of disease transmission. We really do not know the truth about this virus as the government will certainly not tell us everything they know.
For God, Family, Country, & Liberty!October 10, 2014 at 1:34 am #26482
The nurse is saying she might have touched her face with a contaminated glove. If she did then the protocol was broken or wrong. The face should never be exposed in a situation like this. The gloves should be decontaminated prior to removal. It’s imposible to remove your golves by yourself safely if they are not clean.October 13, 2014 at 5:36 pm #26802
Unless they stop travel from infected countries we will have constant out breaks.
“Pair of possible Ebola patients quarantined at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital:
Both patients were picked up at a New York City address and both are believed to have recently returned to the city from Africa, the sources said.
The two — both believed to be adults — have been quarantined at Bellevue Hospital.
EMS crews who dealt with the patients have also been isolated as a precaution”October 13, 2014 at 6:41 pm #26806
It would appear state quarantine proceedure for people flying in from Africa is going to trump the CDC. The news team quarantined in NJ is by state regulation. After 30 days they can appeal or face another 30 days. Whatever it means to be quarantined at Bellevue? It probably means a keypad lock on the door and facemask required. Negative airflow optional. Buildings are generally outdated in Nyc. Rich and poor have their places as they say. Even Joan Rivers chose a clinic.October 13, 2014 at 6:52 pm #26807
With this Fed administration acting as they do, States will by necessity need to step it up to protect the citizenry. I hope enough states do it to make an impact.October 13, 2014 at 7:39 pm #26815
If there ever was a good time for States to assert their sovereignty, this would be it.October 13, 2014 at 10:58 pm #26856
They just keep coming and coming until the system is over whelmed.
A patient at the University of Kansas Hospital is being tested for the Ebola virus, the hospital said Monday afternoon.
The person, who had worked on a medical boat off Africa’s west coast, went to the hospital early Monday morning with a high fever and other symptoms, KU Hospital said in a statement. The patient was isolated in an infectious disease unit for tests.
Five passengers with “flu-like symptoms” have been removed from a packed international flight from Dubai and are en route to Hub hospitals, officials said today, after emergency responders in yellow hazmat suits boarded the plane on the tarmac at Logan International Airport.October 13, 2014 at 11:19 pm #26859
The first time a passenger becomes infected from another passenger the airline industry will take a tumble. There are lots of public exposure risks out there but crowded planes are a special case if you ask me. I’m glad I don’t fly anywhere anymore. If I can’t drive there I don’t go.
