07:57 – Once again, someone who was known to have been heavily exposed to Ebola has been allowed to enter the US and wander around freely, potentially infecting others. This time, it’s a doctor who’d been working with Ebola patients in West Africa and was then allowed to fly home to New York City and go about his business for several days, riding the subway several times, going bowling, going out to dinner, and so on. NYC health authorities have said frankly that there’s no way to trace all of his contacts because there are so many of them. Just great. And, of course, the doctor has now been diagnosed with Ebola. At least he isolated himself once he noticed symptoms. Let’s hope that’s enough.
