but the 2nd guy was in contact with how many and how many were they in contact with?

If the second person has it (it is clearly unknown) would Dallas be considered a poor city because he caught it there(and not just because of the NFL team that plays there of course)?

Not contagious until symptoms show. So, if he was already isolated and being observed when the symptoms started then...zero. That's the "in control" part of it.

Why would someone isolate themselves prior to showing symptoms?

Found this handy dandy flow chart:

Do you have Ebola?

1. Have you touched the vomit, blood, sweat, saliva, urine, or feces of someone who might have Ebola?

NO

You do not have Ebola.

You left out at least 2 (but the censors would have censored it anyway.

The CDC would have isolated him since he was family/right there next to the first victim. So this timeline:

1st victim shows up

CDC figures out who all 1st victim had contact with. Isolates & watches them.

2nd victim is included in this group.

2nd victim starts to show symptoms.

So, it's really sad and bad news for the second victim. But since he was already quarantined when the symptoms started (when he became contagious) then there are no new people exposed.

Except the phlebotomists, and doctors, and nurses, and people that clean the rooms in the hospitals, and people that deliver the hospital food... having LOADS of experience with the ID (infections diseases) department at a hospital where Rota-virus and C-Diff spread on a transplant floor, I have my doubts of their "control."

There is no word on when the second person was found to have symptoms it or that they were isolated prior to just the children were isolated,

it has also been said that the children are being monitored at their own home (presumable with other people in the household)

The first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in America was initially sent home with antibiotics after doctors failed to recognize symptoms of the deadly disease.

This is one reason why I try to stay as far away from other human beings as possible.

I wish I could be the boy in the bubble.

Even after recovery, the microbes stay active for up to 7 weeks. And forget about actual contact with bodily fluids, a Canadian study provides evidence that this stuff can mutate into airborn molecules.

All this ebola talk makes me think of the song "I'm Super" from South Park.

This sucks:

HOUSTON, Texas -- A Dallas paramedic claimed he drove the ambulance that the US Ebola patient was transported in and that he was not contacted by anyone about the potential exposure. He claims he drove the ambulance sometime after the patient was transported. The Dallas Fire Department left the ambulance that transported Ebola patient Thomas Duncan to the hospital in service for at least 48 hours before putting it in quarantine on Wednesday. The ambulance was exposed to the Ebola virus when Duncan was transported on September 28th.

“Three days after the fact,” an exasperated Aklinski stated, “I had to demand exposure testing and they are reporting following up with all the people in the ambulance??? Bull [censored]!!! They haven’t even followed up with the ten firefighters that were on duty Sunday.”

Aklinski went further in explaining the frustration he and most likely, other firefighters, are feeling. “How do you not test and contact the firefighters at the station on Sunday!!! Only the two medics and the intern on the ambulance? I was freaking in that ambulance hours later driving it!!! No one bothered to contact me about it?!!!”

While you were arguing about ebola, 3,562 people died from tuberculosis.

^^^ Not suprising. (Article quoted by QCL)

It's unfortunate that this thread has taken a turn to realistic.

If you read Newsweek or CNBC this week, you may be under the impression that one of the primary drivers of the Ebola outbreak in Africa is climate change.
