It appears that a doctor who had returned from Guinea 10 days ago from the group Doctors without Borders has tested positive for Ebola. It seems that while he was on a self quarantine it was not very rigorous.
Before he started feeling the symptoms today and was rushed to the hospital with a police escort, he was out bowling yesterday with his girlfriend. Exposing her and countless others. He also used über which will probably get negative PR to counter any good PR they were getting from their Flu shot program.
Hopefully, this case will be isolated to the doctor and he will fully recover but we see again the foolishness of believing that the simple screening we have implemented will be sufficient to deter future cases. The next one may not call the hospital when symptoms hit him/her and may instead contaminate many others before diagnosed.
This is the danger of allowing PC considerations dictate public policy. The Administration knows of the dangers and it is following a policy that endangers other citizens in order to appease those that would accuse of racism or overreaction. It is doing this not because it in the public’s interest but because it is in their best political interest. 2 more years!
