CDC Incompetence: Allowing Possibly Infected People To Live Normally Among Us

According to the Director of the CDC, they are closely monitoring all those who treated the first U.S. Ebola patient. Estimates are that this is about 70 people. Now, we are told that another nurse, one of that 70, has been diagnosed with Ebola and, only hours before, traveled by air to and from Cleveland, Ohio.  As a result, we now have another 132 passengers who may have been in contact with this 3rd U.S. patient. But, what about all those other people that came in contact with that healthcare worker either before or after taking the flight?

Obviously, the CDC isn't containing the disease when, in fact, it allows possibly contaminated persons to live their normal lives; including air travel.  How many people have to be infected before the CDC treats this disease with serious caution?

I'm not buying the fact that Ebola is not contagious until there are symptoms.  I hardly think that it is like a light switch when, as soon as there is a 101.5 degree or higher fever, a person is somehow instantly contagious. My guess is we will soon find out that this, too, is a lie.  Ask yourself this.  Why is the CDC trying to find those 132 passengers from that flight if, supposedly, that infected healthcare worker was said to only have a low-grade fever when she took that flight?

One last thing.  I'm tired of people downplaying this by saying more people die of the flu each year in this country than have died from Ebola.  We are only in the early stages and it looks to be spreading.  As a disease, it has a 70% kill rate. The flu kills less than one-tenth of one percent of those who contract it.  So, let me ask you this: What would you prefer to get infected with? The flu? Or, Ebola?
