The first thread was closed due to disruptive behavior from a few individuals.
The second thread was behind the pay wall.
I am activating this third thread in front of the pay wall in order to permit public review and google scanning of the thread.
Earlier today, 30 Sept 2014, US Centers of Disease Control confirmed positive diagnosis of Ebola in an index patient in Dallas.
The patient travelled to the United States on 19 Sept to 20 Sept and began showing symptoms on 24 Sept.
There has not been a full disclosure of the index patient's travel and flight itinerary.
This thread is for the discussion of confirmed medical information between certified medical professionals. Discussion of unproven and untested hypothetical treatments should be moved to a different thread.
This thread is to discuss contagion, public policy, and risk mitigation.
