In protective gear
She was not wearing proper protective gear to deal with the actual constant handling and cleaning of copious amounts of infected fluids.
It was the correct gear for a quick visit to bring the patient meds or something. Not what she was doing.

Can you provide a source for this?

I read it just didn't cover the neck so they used tape. How much could have penetrated?

And they didn't spray it down well enough when she took it off. How much could it have been?

How much is on a sneeze?

Why do you think they have an idea how it spreads?

Its hard to call a man who risked his life to fight Ebola selfish, let's just call him foolish.

How about "irresponsible"?

The guy started feeling sick on Tuesday, he just got back the previous Friday from Ebola-infested Guinea TREATING Ebola patients there, and this sick shi#head continues travelling around NYC in taxis and subways?!

It's horrifying is what it is. 

But don't panic, the CDC has this under control.

I don't have any trouble either.  Sure, a guy goes to Africa and risks his life to save people--probably not selfish.  But if you then see that he is willing to put 300 million people at risk so that he can go bowling--it shows from the beginning that he doesn't care about anyone else, and you have to say he went to Africa also for himself. Maybe to boost his career, or so people would think he is nice.

Well he was with "doctors without borders" so naturally he had to return to the USA.

Naturally he should have self-quarantined in Africa before returning, and then again on return.

What I don't understand is if Ebola can only spread through body fluids then why is it more of a concern of spreading  than HIV.
Because they are lying to you and it is much more contagious than that.
why would they be lying??

There are levels in bodily fluids,
HIV can only be transmitted through a select 3 or 4 hardcore fluids like blood etc, while Ebola makes its way even through a little bit of sweat.
So there you go, they're not "lying".
