--Not one of my usual sources but the CNN video is the story page.
The fact is this, this is a very real threat. Not only to our nations first responders but for our citizens.
This needs to be taken seriously and people need to be aware of the symptoms.--

(TheAntiMedia) I’m speechless. This interview was done by CNN and the man speaking in it is the President of the Fraternal Order of Law Enforcement for Dallas.
He just said the cops were not wearing any kind of protective gear when they entered Duncan’s infected apartment, because they were told it was safe to enter. To make matters worse, he actually received a phone call ten minutes before going on CNN from “2 more” who were exposed and yeah, you guessed it… They are all feeling sick.

In other Ebola developments, another nurse has been isolated under suspicion of being infected with the Ebola virus, this time in Australia. Connecticut declared Ebola a ‘state of emergency‘, giving the state health commissioner quarantine power. Last night, 200 airline cabin cleaners went on strike over Ebola exposure fears at a New York City airport. There are now 6 suspected cases of Ebola in Spain.
Just getting word now that the Ebola test results for one of these cops came back negative. Hopefully the deputy will be tested continually, at least until 3 weeks have passed from when his exposure to Ebola occurred. Another breaking story is that firefighters in Alabama dressed in hazardous material protective gear, opened a command post at the Shuttlesworth-International Airport earlier today. Why? Because a passenger on-board a flight that arrived there showed symptoms of an Ebola infection. All passengers and crew were told to remain on the plane. (Updated: They’ve been released.)
