Mexico says no Ebola patients allowed here; US says come on back!

In breaking news, a lab technician who processed blood and other fluid samples from Thomas Eric Duncan, the first known Ebola victim to arrive unexpectedly on U.S. soil, is currently being quarantined on a Carnival cruise ship after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) contacted the company to notify it of a potential disease breach.
The unidentified woman is currently under voluntary quarantine in one of the ship’s cabins, along with a travel mate, as the leisure vessel makes its way back to Galveston, Texas. The trip had to be cut short after a scheduled port visit to Cozumel, Mexico, was denied clearance, but the woman is said to be showing no symptoms at this time.
“The employee has been self-monitoring, including daily temperature checks, since Oct. 6, and has not had a fever or demonstrated any symptoms of illness,” said CDC spokeswoman Jen Psaki in a recent statement. “It has been 19 days since the passenger may have processed the since deceased patient’s fluid samples.”
