Raises interesting questions. How long until Ebola appears in Syria and Iraq. That should cause some interesting reactions from Isis.

I live near Boston. It was the number one news story on the local news tonight.
I am not too worried though. None of the passengers were from West Africa.
Boston has some of the best hospitals in the world. Protective gear was worn and the sick passengers were safely escorted to local hospitals.

Ebola tests are underway on a man quarantined at the University of Kansas Hospital.

Dr. Lee Norman says the patient has a low to moderate risk of having the deadly virus.

Hospital officials say the man was complaining of a high fever and other symptoms when he checked himself into the hospital Monday.

The patient recently worked on a medical boat off the coast of West Africa.

I hope they use respirators this time. Remember it is NOT transferred through the air. (forget aspirated droplets.)

Do you really believe that??

Did they quarantine the other passengers?
