A Dallas Healthcare worker involved in the lab work for the late Ebola “Patient 0” Thomas Duncan, is reported to be in self quarantine on a cruise ship. I don’t know about you, but if you were a passenger on the Frontier flight the other day, or on this cruise ship, I’d think the Ebola scare just got real.
The cruise ship left Galveston, Texas on October 12, 2014 and is currently off the coast near Belize.
According to the the CBS report, the State Department is saying the woman is showing no signs of the disease and will be returned to the U.S. before the ship returns to port back in the United States.
Jen Psaki said in a statement Friday that the woman had shown no signs of the disease and has been asymptomatic for 19 days.
The government is working to return the woman and her husband to the U.S. before the ship completes its cruise. The White House said the State Department was working to secure their transportation home.
If I was on that ship, I’d pack my bags, hop off, and take the next flight home. Anyone know which ship this is?
