    Well, duh – it's driven by the fact that quarantines and "self-isolation" aren't working. We have good reason for concern. Btw, they don't know for sure that it's not contagious before people start showing symptoms. I've seen people say it's not in the bloodstream until then. Ok, let me ask if you would have taken a blood transfusion from Dr. Spencer the day before he got sick? I wouldn't – because the ebola was actively multiplying from the time he was exposed to it.
