I suppose the concern has to be: where has he been and what has he been doing in the two days since his return....how many people has he had contact with?

It's a little scary, but apparently ebola is not contagious until a person is actually suffering symptoms of the virus and is only spread through direct contact with bodily fluids.

Buried in the news article it says 'they don't know if he has ebola or just the flu yet as they haven't tested him'.

But that doesn't make as good a headline or scare monger as well.

Dr Gerrard, a world-renowned infectious diseases expert, said initial clinical assessment of the 25-year-old made it "exceedingly unlikely" he had the highly infectious disease but he would remain in isolation as further tests were undertaken.

Queensland Health's 'appropriate bit' is investigating, info at oresent is that it is 'unlikely' that he will be found to be suffering from Ebola.

My fault, I left work yesterday telling my colleagues to have a peaceful couple of days......

News is a bit panicky at the moment, Ebola, Obama and the G8, Multiple Mosques in very white areas, plus jihad raids. Add a kinky sex tape.

Someone at work described it at work this morning as 'Un- Australian',

Ah yes its a lovely all encompassing term isnt it, anything you dont remotely like the sound of can be labelled UnAustralian, whether it makes sense is irrelevant.
