We have frequent program interuptions as well as news accounts of the Ebola virus. I heard the first nurse wanted her information kept private which the hospital did but when the CDC and law enforcement, etc are doing deep cleaning of the apartment, going door to door in the apartment complex and neighborhood with information, all over the place, and quarantined her dog to make sure it's safe, nobody's identidy can be kept secret. We just know the second healthcare worker is a female who worked with Mr. Duncan, the first patient, but no more yet. But it just broke this morning and her address has already been published so I know her name too will soon be on the news. They promise not to put down the first nurse's dog unless it does show signs of Ebola. I live in Arlington, which is about 45 minutes from the Presbyterian hospital they are at. They don't know yet just how these health care workers got the virus. The 1st nurse went to TCU college and graduated with her nursing degree a few years ago and they've interviewed other students who were with her that says she is very very conscientious in everything she did. They do say it could get worse before it gets better because of the 75 healthcare workers (besides the 2 already with Ebola) who may have been exposed. The second one I don't know an age on yet or if she was a nurse or doctor or some other type of healthcare worker but she did live alone and had no pets. People in the metroplex area are freaking out, especially in the neighborhoods, because they are terrified that someone they've been exposed just by breathing the same air. The CDC swears you have to have exposure to bodily fluids while they have actual symptoms. The first man, Mr. Duncan, who passed away was from an area also not far from the hospital. The news reports here said that some of the people who lived in his apartment complex were told not to go to work, or were turned away from retailers, etc because of the fear of Ebola even if they were not even near him at all. There is so much work going on here on so many different levels. They had difficulty finding another place for his family because nobody wanted them. Finally a private citizen had a house in a gated community that was empty that he volunteered to them until after the quarantine (which ends this Sunday for that group) and a new place is found. The last I heard someone, either the CDC or the mayor's office of dept of Health was looking for a new place for them to live on a more permanent basis. You can imagine how much all this is costing someone, not even counting the hospital costs! The cleaning, monitoring, finding contacts, etc all costs so much money. Anyway, there is a lot of fear in some areas. The professionals keep stressing too that two health care workers were heroes for taking care of this man and got the disease just doing their job. We'll see what happens now.
In the meantime, a little news but not too much about those poor kids in Colorado and other places with the entovirus or however you spell it that are paralyzed and a couple have died from that one! That would be so hard to deal with too and spread so easily.
