Ebola patient walked around for 8 days before hospitalization

Yep, if they are not lying it was 8 days that this guy walked around before he was hospitalized. Anyone smell a set up here? Anyone wonder why they are still letting flights in from Liberia when it is the epicenter of an outbreak of the worst kind of Sci-Fi disease imaginable?

Just remember this; You kill me, I kill you right back.
Did I forget to say what a foul and murderous mood that this put me in? Yeah , I guess I did.
There is just something about endangering the life of potentially millions of innocents that has that effect on me.

I am not the kind of man who sits on his hands while Pol Pot does his dirty business.

“The facts are straightforward, at least in the version that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laid out: A man of uncertain age flew from Liberia, where the disease remains uncontrolled, to Dallas to visit family. When checked for illness on departure, he had no fever. Upon landing in Texas on September 20, he was fine. Within four days, though, he began to feel ill—sufficiently so that he sought medical attention on September 26. That evaluation apparently failed to provide clues to the diagnosis, but two days later his symptoms had progressed enough that he again sought medical attention and this time was hospitalized, placed immediately into isolation, and diagnosed on September 30.

The timeline as presented raises countless questions. First: Was he contagious when boarding the plane and are his plane-mates therefore at risk? Surely not—the most compelling epidemiological fact in the entire tragic seven month outbreak has been the story of Patrick Sawyer, the Minnesotan who after traveling from Liberia to Nigeria, developed symptoms of overwhelming Ebola and died soon thereafter. Although few details have been revealed, none of those who traveled with Sawyer developed the disease despite the fact that he, unlike the Dallas case, was ill with the infection while traveling. And it is axiomatic (and hopefully true) that a person is contagious only when they are sick, not when they are brewing the infection.”
