    I told you we should have burned the hospital.


    (CNN)
    -- A health care worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital has tested positive for Ebola after a preliminary test, the state's health agency said in a statement.

    Confirmatory testing will be conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

    The employee helped care for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. Duncan died on Wednesday.

    The Obama administration has classified it as work place violence. No need to worry.

    All is going according to plan. Just wait until the 3000 American troops who are going into the hotzone start catching this shit.

    I'll say what everyone is thinking:

    Shit is about to get apocalyptic especially if this patient dies. From what I've heard about the experimental treatments there isn't even 100 z-packs in existence which means if there is even a small breakout we are fucked, like bubonic plague fucked. It is time to start getting freaked the fuck out.

    We can quarantine animals coming in due to threat of spreading disease through our pet populations but noooo we can't stop flights or quarantine people who have traveled from Ebola hot-zones to protect our human population.

    The best thing is the news postulating about it perhaps being amongst the first set of health care workers to treat Duncan before they knew he had Ebola as if health care workers aren't already pretty damn diligent about contact with sick persons bodily fluids.

    If the health care workers, with all of their training, are getting sick, the rest of us are fucked.

    We're really in bad shape when you consider that all of the sick people will FIRST be interacting with all of the health care workers. The doctors and nurses will be the first ones to drop.


    Then what?
