Closing The Barn Door After The Virus Got Out

For all the power mad freaks in government and the authoritarians they love, I can not for the life of me figure out why they didn't do this from the minute they found out this guy was wandering about, spreading a deadly fucking virus around but then again, like I have said many times, never underestimate the enormous capacity for stupid in people.

Ebola patient’s family quarantined as officials search for possible exposures


The family of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan were legally quarantined Thursday after they did not comply with Dallas health officials requests that they stay home.
Doctors are taking the temperatures of four family members in the unit where Duncan was staying twice a day to monitor symptoms as part of the health surveillance efforts being led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local Dallas government.
“If people leave, even though they’re asymptomatic, if they’re not at home when we go out to do our surveillance test on them, then that defeats the purpose of that surveillance test and that endangers them … if they were to be infected, they need to know that as quickly as possible,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. “So it’s for their benefit and everyone else’s.”
Texas health officials said during a press conference Thursday that the family would be quarantined in their apartment unit for the next 20 days until the potential incubation period for Ebola is over.


Oh you have just GOT to go read the rest of this, it is like a mini drama/horror show with a Socialist support cast.

Isolation procedures are not rocket science. They should know how to do this by now. If this doesn't spread it'll only be through luck. Hospitals in general have gotten lax with infection control. It's coming home to bite us.

What is it about deadly pandemic that they don't get?

Just love the responses of the bureaucrats down there, "NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY". God help us all if this gets out of control.

My family dies, because of their stupidity, so does theirs. Simple as that.
