ReeMonster: You're right Peepsburg, she is as selfish as the most selfish entitled American and I can't stand that I continue to hear from her. Until somebody else contracts the disease while within our borders I have a feeling this issue will continue to be invisible now that the elections are over. Pathetic.
Also unknown is whether the time between exposure to Ebola and the appearance of symptoms depends on which bodily fluids someone contacted. If it does, then someone exposed through, say, saliva rather than blood might incubate the virus for longer than the 21 days officials have repeatedly said is the outer limit of the incubation period.
That was the longest incubation time during the 1976 Ebola outbreak, said Dr. C.J. Peters, a field virologist at UTMB. But "I would guess that 5 percent of people" can transmit the virus after incubating it for more than three weeks, said Peters, whose battle against the Ebola outbreak in a monkey colony in Virginia was recounted in Richard Preston's 1994 book "The Hot Zone."

The unit was disbanded to cut down on runaway overtime expenses.
On Nov. 17, a child welfare caseworker in Camden was confronted in her office and stabbed more than 20 times by a client she had been supervising.
