    A Texas health-care worker who “may have” handled lab specimens from Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan has been isolated on board a Carnival cruise ship in the Caribbean. The worker has shown no symptoms of the disease, according to Carnival, which said it is in close contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A Carnival spokeswoman said the guest, who was not named, will remain on board in voluntary isolation until the ship returns to its home port of Galveston on Sunday.

    The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital employee and a partner boarded the ship Oct. 12 in Galveston, Tex., before the CDC updated the requirement for active monitoring, the State Department said in a statement. Although the worker is healthy, the U.S. government is working with the cruise line to get the ship back to America “out of an abundance of caution.”

    A co-worker of mine dropped dead (late twenties) on a cruise last week. I blame Obama.

    Why? The head of the CDC told me that you can't get ebola from riding public transportation. Then he said that if you do have ebola, don't take public transportation because you can infect others. Sound logic to me. Fucking liberals are literally destroying our country.

    He was also asked why we don't ban all flights from Africa and he said we can't because then we cannot go over there to help stop the virus. If we ban travel then the infection will spread around Africa and we can't let that happen. Who cares if the virus spreads in the US because we deserve it. Some other liberal douchebag was saying that the US is responsible for the ebola outbreak because Liberia was created by former slaves in the US. These people really need to be put down like a rabid dog.

    I heard what he actually said. The thing is, why not stop flights from all of Africa and any connecting flights? If their passport says they flew from Liberia to Germany to here, they can't come in, period. Why is that so difficult? The explanation the CDC and Obama are giving make no sense. My Boss just flew in from South Africa. We have him tied up in the basement.

    This is what I heard last night at work. Customer said she went to her doctor yesterday and on the door was a sign saying "if you have flu like symptoms, go the emergency room. We can not treat you here." wtf?

    Two strippers won't be hitting up the champagne room for the next 21 days because they're in Ebola quarantine.

    Texas flop jockeys Axl Goode and Taylor Cole say they sat 3-feet from Ebola patient, nurse Amber Vinson during a flight from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday so they called the CDC.

    The buffed out strippers were on hold for 81 minutes before they finally got an official on the line. After that, they were placed on a 21 day voluntary quarantine

    And why would they quarantine him if he is not showing symptoms. Doesn't make sense, he has to have a fever at least or maybe a cold.

    The good news is that so far not one person has gotten it casually. Even the people who lived with Duncan when he was sick and sent back home are fine.

    The only people sick are dealing with a very contagious person and a lot of body fluids.

    A cruise ship!? Are you fucking kidding me? Were there no Tokyo subway passes this asshole could get a hold of?

    Is there any chance at all that anyone who's treated an Ebola patient, or handled their waste, could just stay the fuck home for a few weeks afterward? JFC, is this such a hard concept to grasp?
