- Navarro College, a two-year college about 60 miles from Dallas, sent out rejection letters to some applicants from Nigeria because the country had a few Ebola cases.
- A woman boarded a shuttle bus in a Pentagon parking lot Thursday, got off and vomited. A hazmat team responded, the area was cordoned off, military officials going to a Marine Corps ceremony were temporarily quarantined, the woman was put into isolation.
- A passenger who vomited in the aisle of an American Airlines plane from Dallas to Chicago was allegedly told to stay in the lavatory for the rest of the flight.
- An elementary school teacher in Maine was put on 21 days’ leave – the incubation period for Ebola — because she went to Dallas for an education conference. While there, she stayed at a hotel about 10 miles from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where a patient died of the disease.
- A middle school principal in Hazelhurst, Mississippi, who went to his brother’s funeral in Africa is now on a weeklong paid vacation. Why? Because parents pulled their kids out of school Friday once they learned of the trip. And where in Africa did the principal go? Zambia, which has reported a total of zero Ebola cases.
Do I have to tell you that none of those people, none, had Ebola?
There’s more idiocy at the link.
What ever happened to common sense? I realize that CNN, Fox and to a lesser degree MSNBC have all been reporting on Ebola nonstop, but there have been eight confirmed cases in the US. EIGHT! Yet we see panicky decisions like those above every day!
