    Woman on ebola list just croaked in NY.

    I guess the breaking news clip says it all. She was on the list but who knows what she actually succumbed to.

    Why do we allow travel to places where such deadly infectious diseases are rampant without mandatory lockdown quarantine on return? She died in a hair salon!

    Should we expect follow up when someone posts fear inducing newsbites?

    By MARC SANTORA and EMMA G. FITZSIMMONSNOV. 19, 2014

    Woman’s Remains Being Tested for Ebola in New YorkNOV. 18, 2014


    The woman, whose name was not released, came to the United States almost three weeks ago from Guinea, in West Africa, the city’s health department said. She did not show symptoms of the virus before her death, but was being monitored because she was within the 21-day incubation period for the virus.

    The city has been tracking about 300 people who have traveled in West Africa.

    Fire Department officials said they were called to the hair salon, African Queen Hair Braiding, on Tuesday for a patient in cardiac arrest. The woman was pronounced dead there.

    Jim Long, a Fire Department spokesman, said the medical examiner’s office collected blood specimens from the woman and gave them to the health department for testing.

    The only person to receive an Ebola diagnosis in the city, Dr. Craig Spencer, recovered and was released on Nov. 11 from Bellevue Hospital Center. He contracted the virus while in Guinea with the aid group Doctors Without Borders.

    Yes, unless it's a known alarmist.

    If a person is back from ebola hot spots and on a " cdc self monitoring list" , but can conduct a regular daily routine during the incubation period and suddenly experience facial hemorrhaging or other ebola like symptoms, then why bother to have self imposed monitoring at all ?

    If our soldiers are to be quarantined after leaving ebola hotspots then so should everyone, imo.
