The major concern for everyone here is that the virus is contained so it doesn’t interrupt Obama’s Christmas vacation.
A person in Hawaii was placed in isolation after exhibiting possible symptoms consistent with Ebola, state health officials said.
The patient is being treated at the Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii. Authorities said they were being especially cautious because of heightened concern about Ebola, but the patient could have a number of illnesses.
“The hospital is being very careful, as they should be, to take precautions making sure the patient is in isolation and making sure the people and the public stay safe,” Dr. Melissa Viray of the Hawaii Department of Health told ABC affiliate KITV. “That being said, it’s still an if. This is not a ‘for sure’ thing.”
The patient had recently traveled in western Africa, but hey, let’s not get carried away and impose any travel restrictions or anything. More background here on the case in Dallas, which raises concerns. In the meantime, the ugly, angry left thinks now is a good time to break out the Ebola jokes, because Texas or something. One of Obama’s favorite “journalists” gets the ball rolling:
If Ebola spreads in Texas maybe the rest of the nation will join the secession movement.

One of Corn’s illiterate fans weighed in:
@DavidCornDC I would be happy if Texas was successful in succession. They can take the rest of the nasty south at the same time.

Democrats are trying desperately to turn Texas blue, but eh, forget it. Let’s hope everyone gets wiped out, because liberal compassion:
Texas thinks they can successfully secede from the US so it would be pretty just if they got wiped out by ebola

Without Texas the national economy would be under water, it’s mostly black people afflicted with Ebola and children have been put at risk. But hey, it’s time to crack funny.
@DavidCornDC Gleeful jokes about dying. There's the left wing in a nutshell.
