Ebola And Heathcare Wokers

Seems like things may be starting to die down on this whole Ebola out break.
Hospitals say they are more prepared and could handle this situation,should it arrive in their facility.
According to participating hospitals across the country,Some important out comes have been put in place such as better protective gear and garments for health care workers to use,the buddy system,which states that no garmated person working with anyone who may have Ebola,is allowed to undress with out the assistance of another medical personal,to make sure protocol is followed.
Now we have about 4 hospitals whose main job will be to handle said Ebola patients.
In Texas over 60 people where involved,in some way with coming in contact with this confirmed patient.
This was very bad procedure since this could have caused a rather size able outbreak had each allowed someone in there immediate family to also contact this disease.
Not to mention,as we found out later,of a potential bridal shop and cruise ship.
One sick patient can come into contact and spread germs to hundreds of people,not because they have personal contact with each,but because they are contributing to second and third hand passing by the people they could potently infect.
It was not so many years ago that Aids infected thousands of people because of one male stewardess,who passed his disease to hundreds of people and they in turn to thousands.
We live in an age where people travel all around the world and come into contact with many people on a day by day basis.
If I am unaware of my sickness then confining myself will not be my option,but the out come could be very tragic.
We need to take all the precautions we can,even if it means infringing on our rights as a questionable disease carrier.
Nursing personnel,of all people,should be more then willing to follow set up protocol and remain quarantined for the said 21 days,if that is what state law calls for.
To do anything else,goes against the vow, each of us read upon the day we graduated which was "To do no harm".Anything other then that is selfish and self centered,putting us above the needs of those around us,who we could spread a sickness,that could cause death and a most horrible death at that.
