/So, two nurses are now infected with Ebola from the first patient they were taking care of that died.

What else could go wrong?//
//On October 13, one of the nurses that took care of the first Ebola patient took a plane trip to Cleveland and back to Dallas. When she got back she was diagnosed with Ebola and put in quarantine. According to what I've read, 77 people at the hospital were involved in caring for the first Ebola patient. //And, the nurses were taking care of other patients in the hospital.//

//Apparently the hospital tube system was used to transport Ebola tissue to the hospital lab. The trash is piling up with contaminated waste and the hospital cafeteria is like a ghost town. I wouldn't be surprised if the entire medial center is shut down in a few days and the entire staff is quarantined. //There is no protocol for treating or containing Ebola.
We are in the best of hands!//

/The problem is that we know so little about the transmission of Ebola. What if it turns out that an infection can be transmitted in the air? Apparently we have a Texas nurse getting the Ebola virus - can you get Ebola by walking down the hall in a hospital? Go figure. /

/Also, if there is a breach of hospital protocol while caring for an Ebola patient and a worker gets Ebola, should the worker get fired? And, what happens if they check your temperature when you get on a plane to the U.S. and then you get a fever and throw up in the aisle while in flight?//
//So many questions, so few answers. Go figure./

(Reuters) - A Texas health worker who provided care for the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States has tested positive for the deadly virus in a preliminary examination, a state health official said on Sunday...

/It is very difficult to screen for Ebola. So far, there have been no cases of transmission on flights during this outbreak. The real problem is when the disease becomes airborne. So far, this hasn't happened yet either. Air-born Ebola on a plane is going to be a nightmare! /

NEW YORK - Customs and health officials began taking the temperatures of passengers arriving at New York's Kennedy International Airport from three West African countries on Saturday in a stepped-up screening effort meant to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus...
