Again another example of people not thinking or not caring. Perhaps when they get sick it will be a different story.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

I have to question the optics of this as opposed to the reality. I am making a few assumptions here but I HIGHLY doubt that given the publicity and fear surrounding Ebola that these officers would have gone anywhere near the Doctor's apt. In 'taping off' the building they were more than likely creating a temporary exclusion zone while Public Health workers examined the area to assess risk.  The article states the officers were there to 'mark off' the Doctor's building. The article gives no real information as to what the purpose was or even if the officers and tape etc were anywhere near anything infective. I would suggest that they were simply addressing their own fears related to any potential for exposure. To me this article is sensationalism and fear mongering for no reason and has absolutely no information in it.
THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS... ONLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOLUTIONS

yes.. you can see the tape in the barrel.
but the perception of the public
(to appease fears or instill confidance) should also be paramount in their deliverance as should be the patient and possible contamination..
