Duncan

Thomas Duncan, the Liberian man diagnosed in Texas with Ebola, is under strict quarantine and may face criminal charges for lying on his health screening forms before leaving Liberia.

From WFAA:

Liberian authorities say Thomas Eric Duncan wasn’t truthful on his health questionnaire at the airport, after being asked if he had been in contact with anyone suffering from the deadly disease.

According to the Associated Press, Duncan wrote “no” when asked that question, but neighbors say Duncan helped a woman who died of the disease while he was in his home country. At the time, her symptoms were thought to be related to her pregnancy.

Liberian airport officials say Duncan will be prosecuted after he returns home.

Duncan carried the virus through three cities:

The Liberia News Agency said that Duncan boarded an SN Brussels Airlines flight. That plane took him first to the Belgian capital, and he then flew to the United States, where he arrived September 20.

He was on two United Airlines flights — Flight 951 from Brussels to Washington Dulles and Flight 822 from Washington Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth — during that trip, according to a spokesperson for the airline who did not want to be named. (source)

His family is under strict quarantine and observation for 21 days. They will face criminal charges if they leave their apartment or visit with anyone outside:

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Thursday that Duncan’s family in Dallas left their home against official requests, and that’s why a “control order” was put in place Wednesday night to keep them inside.

The family must also be available to give blood samples and be monitored until the incubation period for Ebola has passed on Oct. 19. CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said their temperatures will be taken twice a day.

Law enforcement is stationed at the apartment complex where the family lives to make sure they stay put. Officials say house conditions need to improve, and Judge Jenkins says the family’s bedding and belongings have been bagged. (source)

About that quarantine…

More than a week after a Liberian man fell ill with Ebola and four days after he was placed in isolation at a hospital in Dallas, the apartment where he was staying with four other people had not been cleaned and the sheets and dirty towels he used while sick remained in the home, health officials acknowledged on Thursday afternoon.

That’s right – the apartment Duncan’s family is being forced to stay in has not been cleaned or decontaminated:

The Texas health commissioner, Dr. David Lakey, told reporters during an afternoon news conference that health workers should have moved more swiftly to clean the apartment but that they had had trouble finding an outside medical team to do the work. They encountered “a little bit of hesitancy,” he said.

“We are arranging for that apartment to be cleaned,” he said. “The house conditions need to be improved.”

During a CDC teleconference today, Dr. Frieden said that people traveling from West Africa may not know they have been exposed to Ebola, or choose to not disclose that information.

He also said health officials are mostly concerned with people who have had prolonged exposure within three feet of a patient.

Duncan is in stable but serious condition at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

    Se we let the scum of the earth in but Oleksandra Bronova a Cambridge graduate, married to a US marine veteran and actually speaks five languages was arrested & thrown in max security for crossing the border last July. Also, unlike many crossing the border illegally, Bronova has no criminal history.

    • William Keith Lopez

      Bronova has no criminal history except for illegally crossing the border – right? So calling him a criminal would be racist?

      • 1stworlder

        Bronova is a blond woman, and pot smokng leftists say illegal aliens are not illegal aliens.

  • Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
    With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
