I wouldn't remove them, there have been a large number of false negatives in west Africa, maybe set them as a "heightened alert" instead of a possibility? I am not suggesting every negative will turn around and be a positive, but once the initial test comes back negative the CDC says all is well patient was suffering from malaria and send them back out into the community, one false negative and you could see a situation of someone spreading it to several hounded people in short order.
I stickied it

Awesome, thanks Alaska. I'm hoping this becomes a real asset for our community and others. Feel free to share it. Thanks for the input johnE.
If it's not up yet, Delaware, supposedly a confirmed case child too.

Allegedly the CDC determined low possibility of having it, so didn't even bother to do the test. Haha.

One thing to remember some of these people could very well be a secondary contact case.
According to the CDC is someone who is presenting Ebola like symptoms and doesn't have the travel history to an Ebola effected region, AND hasn't had contact with an Ebola patient or funeral, then they don't qualify for a blood test.
No links, but news ticker said over 80 people in quarantine in US due to Ebola concerns.
Last I heard the CDC was tracking as many as 100 contacts of Mr. Duncan in Dallas, so even if 1% of them have it that is 8 new Ebola patients, providing us our first wave rate of infection at 8.0, and something sure to climb even higher as more people get sick.
Right now a fear of mine that has climbed to the top, is the CDC, government, and media simply whitewashing all of this to avoid public panic, anyone who dies of Ebola gets their cause of death listed as organ failure or something. Would then give the virus a chance to rage through the population.

Yeah this is all a hot mess. Stay frosty peeps. Another week or so before we see what the outcome of T. Duncan wandering around unchecked with ebola will drop on us. I'm thinking the map might start popping up more at that point.
That, is what you call depressing as shia.
