It seems inappropriate to me to bring into our country any patient with ebola virus. In its parent setting in Africa it is nearly universally fatal. To expose airplane pesonnel, ambulance personnel, and caregivers to this risk no matter how careful they are being is not in my opinion in the best interests of all involved. I am sorry about the caregiver and physician who contraccted this horrible disease but I am sure they knew the risks when they volunteered for this duty. Is seems the potential for accidental spread of this disease in the USA is very high with this action.
Doctor with Ebola Returns to U.S. for Care — Physician’s First Watch
Doctor with Ebola Returns to U.S. for Care
By Kelly Young
An American physician who contracted the Ebola virus while working in West Africa was transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta over the weekend.
He is being cared for in the hospital's isolation unit for infectious diseases, which was built to treat CDC doctors who became ill. A second infected aid worker is expected to arrive within days.
Meanwhile, the CDC issued a health advisory giving physicians advice regarding whom to suspect of having Ebola virus disease, how to obtain and submit specimens for diagnostic testing, and how to best control infection in a hospital setting.
