Perhaps a quarantene would be in order for those countries where Ebola is
rampant?Why do 3,000 U.S. Troops need to go to those affected areas?
Will they bring it home?So why does it always fall to us to borrow
money to do these types of things while the other major powers do nothing?
The EMT's that transported this man to this hospital didn't know he
was infected with Ebola and they themselves had to seek out testing for the
Virus the CDC didn't seek them out. This ambulance was used for 2 days
after they transported the patient to the hospital contaminated with Ebola.
@ intervention:The guy who brought Ebola here did break a law. He
lied on the mandated flight form each traveler signs when coming from effected
countries... under penalty of law for lying. He did. He signed his name saying
he did not have any contact with anyone having or suspected of having Ebola. He knew at that time the woman he carried from a taxi had died of the
disease and her brother was in process of dying. He lied in order to receive
better treatment in the USA. His selfishness exposed up to 100 additional
people, some of whom will probably end up with it. He's exposed all those
people to possible death... all unnecessarily. It could potentially be the start
of an epidemic in this country which would cause many deaths and cost hundreds
of millions of dollars... or more. This man has NO valid excuse.Nor
has the Obama administration any valid excuse for not totally restricting travel
to and from the countries currently with epidemics. @ BYU track
guy:The DN doesn't want to cause unnecessary public concern
until the possible SLC case is confirmed. It's only rumor until then.
I applaud the US for assisting the West African nations that are struggling with
the Ebola virus. However, this does not mean we need to give visas to West
African's as if a health crisis were not occurring. Additionally, relying
on self reporting has proven ineffective in protecting US citizens from Ebola.
Help West Africa, but do not do so at the expense of US citizens health and
@mapledonAny chance to twist everything to attack Obama right? This
gentleman arrived here through the airport system completely legally. He was not
bra king any laws, laws that have existed long long before Obama.
Sure is good to know from President Obama that we are on the case. Fighting the
Eboly virus. Yes, Eboly, as he informed the students at Northwestern today.
While we are on the topic of Public Health and Viruses. The SL Trib is covering
news of reports of a suspected Ebola patient at Primary Children's
Hopsital? Why isn't the Desert News?
No effort to contain this disease in West Africa and absolutely no effort by our
administration to control or stop entrance of sick people into this country
shows incredible negligence and incompetence. Instead, the POTUS wants our
borders unprotected and open to anyone and everyone. I can't understand how
anyone could be so incompetent. Quarantine is the first step. It's as if
these people want it to spread. Makes you wonder what our
administration is up to...at least it should.
