    It's possible that a second confirmed case in the U.S. will cause more concern that the first. One reason is, this would be
    the first instance of Ebola being transmitted to someone in this country who hasn't been to Africa.

    We are now in the time frame where we can expect other cases shortly. The first case that is not directly associated with
    Africa or the Presbyterian hospital in Texas is the one that will cause the greatest stir.

    Hey,

    It's not possible any more, it's confirmed.

    CNN is showing a news conference from the hospital. It's a health care worker who took care of Duncan.

    They've locked down their ER. That would be Presbyterian Hospital.

    They've also quarantined a family member. They've got 48 others that are moving from self checking to being checked twice daily, by a medical person.

    How odd. A health care worker who knows how to sterilize themselves, what with hazmat stuff, and Duncan's family is still asystematic.

    Health care worker's apt. complex is also be cleaned.

    from the news conference....

    "....this person was in full PPE"....."we are very concerned". "healthcare worker has been self monitoring and hasn't been to work in the last 2 days"....

    more from the conference:
    This was the 2nd worker that came into contact with him on his 2nd trip to the hospital wearing full CDC protective gear....this patient was part of the "low-risk pool". the protective gear also included gear to protect the mouth (from droplets, etc.)...

    Hey,

    This health care worker was NOT one of the 48 they were following.

    They had complete hazmat suits on when they came in contact with Duncan. They are very worried about how this happened.

    Hey,

    Just as a side note: Presbyterian doesn't have an isolation ward. What they had done was cordoned off a 24 bed ICU ward, and was using that.

    So nothing on the same scale as what Emory has set up.

    What is wrong with those folks??????? This isn't something to play around with. Send them folks to a real place set up for this.

    Ya boy,

    nothing to worry about we have it under control. Let's send 4000 troops to Africa, with 24 hours of training-just great.
