DALLAS The transmission of the Ebola virus to a nurse here forced the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday to reconsider its approach to containing the disease, with state and federal officials re-examining whether equipment and procedures were adequate or too loosely followed, and whether more decontamination steps are necessary when health workers leave isolation units.
We have to rethink the way we address Ebola infection control, because even a single infection is unacceptable, Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, director of the C.D.C., told reporters.

Perfect fit for this White Hut.
But they said everything was A-ok....
How about stopping people from traveling to America from infected countries...
C.D.C. Rethinking Methods to Stop Spread of Ebola
FRee Republic has become the primary textbook for Ebola...
Why not let the kids opine as well?
They are re-thinking their strategy. Again.
26 years old. Prayers to the Pham family.
Gotta love this Johnson guy.
One of his Tweets:
“It’s odd how lefties supported knowing where #DarrenWilson lived to target him but hate knowing where quarantined #ebola patients are.”
A joke of an article, does not even talk about the obvious - stopping flights coming in from infected countries.
Since the nurse isn’t black does that mean Jesse Jackson was wrong when he screamed racism? Or do Viet Namese qualify?
Now, here is a picture of the Hazmats removing a guy from a plane in the Dominican Republic
Which country is taking the threat more seriously ?Yes, I think the CDC should rethink their methods.
I guess it’s too late to build a fence. Those nasty Ebola critters are pretty small anyway. Pesky little varmints too. They never seem to go away. They’re like illegal aliens. They always come back.
"What? I can't understand you through all those layers of plastic."
"I said, Republicans are trying to spread panic about Ebola to get an advantage in the November elections!"
Let's not get carried away, now, by doing something effective.
Nothing instills confidence like the image of the entire federal government entrusted with the isolation/eradication of infectious diseases scratching their collective chins and going “hmmmm”.
Which could be the reason they are “rethinking” their methods......if the nurse became symptomatic Friday, and the BF is sick today, something isn’t right. Like maybe one CAN be contagious before showing symptoms.
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
