You cannot get Ebola by sitting next to someone on a bus, but that infected or exposed persons should not ride public transportation because they could transmit the disease to someone else.


We are safe as per the CDC

You should be OK on that one. According to Sheldon, when the machines rise up the ATMs will be leading the charge.

Pretty sure they havent spilled the beans on everything yet.
FOr instance, I'm still not sure about that whole "Roswell thing".... smile
SLightly more seriously, I'm more nervous that they aren't so much holding stuff back but more like they dont actually know wha to do.

That is true BBB. I don't think they ever thought we would have to worry about it in the US. Things like that don't happen here, or so we thought.

"The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic. The truth is, that it is not the jewish banking conspiracy or the gray aliens or the 12 foot reptiloids from another dimension that are in control. The truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless."

By 'They' do you mean the CDC or the current administration?

"They" 100% do not know what to do, did not already have a plan in place and unless 'they' are healthcare workers in a "big city" THEY probably still don't ......ANY of that stuff.

My mother works in a large hospital in her city (approximatly 60 miles south east of Boston, MA)and I am sure that if a suspected patient came into her hosiptal the staff would not yet have been fully informed on how to handle the situation. It is both scary & sad

If you believe that then I've got some land in Florida to sell you. Never floods.

Not only does the world have a rudder. That rudder steers its course through a sea of money and has since time immemorial. No chaos about it. History won't support any notion of chaos or lack of control.

When my daughter, the nurse and medical director, came home and told me that she may cancel a trip to big city regions if this 'scare' ramps up anymore, I changed my tune on this. I'm not panicking yet. But I do take notice when someone in the profession is showing concern.

On a lighter note, I would have thought ComplyYouMust would be all over this. crazy

gee, is your daughter so prone to hysterics that she had to bring a nurse and medical director home with her to explain this to you? Does insurance cover this as a house call? What is the deductible on this type of meeting? eek
