The first Ebola case in the US has been diagnosed today. The CDC today confirmed a patient hospitalized in Dallas, Texas has Ebola. Apparently, this patient was in Liberia recently flew to the US while infected with the Ebola virus. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/sep/30/first-ebola-case-diagnosed-us I remember years ago when Ebola first surfaced. We were told, Ebola was a fast acting virus and therefore no real threat to public health in the US or elsewhere. Well it appears that is no longer the case as the case in Texas proves, Ebola has spread beyond Africa. Now the question is did he/she infect any of the passengers on the plane? If he or she did, many more people could be infected and many more infections can be expected. The medical community appears to be very confident they can handle Ebola, but then Ebola wasn't supposed to spread across borders either and it clearly has. The credibility of the medical establishment is now under scrutiny as well it should be.
