    This is so epic. How can they not detect it? That doctor should be quarantined first before anything else because they all know he'd been to West Africa.

    Ask @realDonalTrump. He's off a lot of times, but this time, I gotta agree with him -- minus the part about asking for Obama's resignation.

    NO. They don't really care. If they do, why haven't they examined the doctor knowing he is a physician who treats Ebola virus victims. The fact that he had physical contact with the victims, he might carried the virus even if the symptoms aren't present.

    I really am not sure how the government secures this case.

    Im not sure. Maybe they've missed this one but as far as i can see, the gov't is doing their best. Even the troops sent to West Africa was quarantined for 21 days

    The president handles this issue. They are doing their best to make every places in New York safe, especially, those place that Spencer had been

    Obama's not really concerned. How can he assure the public that US is Ebola free? This is only one of the incident in relation to Ebola (not including the nurse). Plus, Spencer had ridden subways, taken a cab and visited a bowling alley in Brooklyn between his return from Guinea and the onset of symptoms. How can they be sure it's a hundred percent safe? WTF

    I dont think the government is too concerned with this topic. They prioritize early campaigns and other shits.

    NO. They dont give a shit about this thing. They do not know that this is too serious. If this virus spreads to New York, chances of spreading it the whole United States is high

    For me, the government are still doing their job. This is too serious problem not to notice. Im sure they heard about this and the president wouldn't ignore such a thing

    Not Sure here. Our government is always busy and the fact that we dont know why are they busy. We cant conclude that they are not doing anything about this problem.

    No! They dont care! They are too busy for some things that doesn't benefit the people of America.

    Melissa Stansfeld voted for No almost 3 years ago.

    I put 50 points on the line. I'm pretty sure people think that the government isn't. It's just crazy to me why we're not stopping all flights from West Africa from landing on US soil. When my niece has a severe cold, her parents don't let her go to school so she doesn't infect all of her classmates. It's just precautions people should take to stop the spread of infection. If they can't contain it there, why are we so eager to bring it here?

    Im not sure whether the gov't is doing their part. The doctor should be quarantined because he have been to a place contaminated by Ebola. Why did they let this happen?
