Ebola: Second Patient Contracted Ebola

According to CDC, a breach in protocol resulted in a nurse who was treating the index patient, Thomas Eric Duncan.  The CDC is making sure that infected will get the best care and CDC team is making sure others who have had contact with her are isolated.

The only way you can contract Ebola is with direct contact with the bodily fluid of an infected.  

The key like I've always said regarding Ebola, other hemorrhagic fevers, or bacterial outbreaks is education, doing everything to avoid contamination or the infected, and common sense.

It is possible at this time there could be additional infection cases due to the same nature of beach in protocol that resulted in the nurse being infected.
