Ugh. I'm always shocked by the sheer incompetence that can be displayed by people who are supposed to be educated.
And my guess is this guy got scared after his contact with his sick neighbor, and hightailed it to the states, so he could get real care if he got ill. What I don't get though, is a news report I heard this morning: that the 12-18 people who are being monitored has now been expanded to about 80 because of their interaction with those original 12-18. If the virus truly doesn't spread until one is symptomatic, and there's no report of the 12-18 having gotten sick at this point, then what's up with that?
ETA: this is the hospital I was born in, and I'm returning to Dallas next week. Hopefully the state fair won't be ebola-fest, because I am eating the shit out of some fair food. The menu this year:
Chicken-fried loaded ebola potato
Spicy fried ebola balls
Twisted ebola tacos
Fried gulf shrimp ebola
Fried PB&J with banana, bacon, and ebola
