    Health care workers and journalists should be quarantined for 30 days before leaving the countries. This whole thing is a joke

    Unfortunately that sounds like making sense

    As stated before, this will be how the virus gets into the UK and eventually becomes epidemic.

    Our Government havent got the intelligence to be able to contain this sort of thing.

    its not intelligence, its will, they don't care, they care about money, nothing can interrupt the flow of money, if theres an epidemic of any kind they will leave or hide in their bunkers like the rats they are.

    I always assumed hospitals with isolated wards for such things would have staff accommodation also to keep an eye on them and stop them spreading stuff, but now I bet they just go home on the bus everyday in their uniform like all the other nurses.

    The volunteer flew into Glasgow Airport on a British Airways flight at about 11.30pm.
    Anyone on that plane urged to phone 08000 858531.

    Very true. I said when our "volunteers" went out there it was a mistake as the virus would be in the UK not long after. Selfish volunteers IMO.

    Or just maybe its all part of the "plan" to reduce the population here,there,everywhere. Why else would they encourage people to work there and then come back without being checked out first.

    The plane bringing them back touched down in Morocco then Heathrow oO That should of spread the infection around nicely.

    HEAD TO YOUR BUNKERS ! X)

    Health experts have emphasised that the RISKS are NEGLIGIBLE.
    The infected person flew from Casablanca to London Heathrow, arriving at Glasgow Airport on a British Airways flight at about 23:30pm last night.
    My understanding is that the patient is in hospital at Gartnavel and will shortly travel to London to be treated at Royal Free Hospital.

    they can build their own, be stupid not too that one only has about 3 beds anyway

    Anybody that volunteers to go work in a place thats infected with Ebola (or any major, easily spread disease) should not be allowed back into the country until it is 100% confirmed they are not carrying anything (however long that period is)

    Get a grip, Error, remember how long it took to build that unfinished pile of crap called the Scottish parliament - and don't even think about mentioning Edinburgh's tram system.

    By the time the cash came through and every corrupt official had taken their share it would be ten years at least before the first brick was laid.

    Totally safe except for the fact that anything they touched in the 2 planes may be contaminated and remember planes are only brushed down when cleaned between flights so any ebola virus will stay on handles trays seats etc.

    What did she do when waiting to connect to glasgow from heathrow? more contamination there.

    they wouldn't disgruntle big business over something that could possibly happen but probably won't, so buying locks for doors after the horses have all bolted

    There was a couple of cases in Spain was there not? It didn't spread there... I'm surprised sky news haven't released the kraken that is Kay burley onto the streets of Glasgow to tell us all we are dooooooomed

    Chill Henry, obviously we don't know everything about this situation, but we do know this virus can only be spread by direct contact with contaminated body fluids such as blood, vomit and saliva.

    As far as we know the patient was NOT bleeding, vomiting or sneezing all over the plane - far less the whole of the UK.

    Lots of people will be very afraid - with good reason - but let's try not to let our fears run away with us.

    You are right of course. BUT if this virus mutates and these nhs workers continue to bring it baack home with them then it could be THE END! X)

    Big difference; they were in isolation and flown to Spain to be treated, the one we have flew in without knowing she had it.

    Nevertheless, if Nigeria with a population of 170 million can put together a rapid response that effectively traced almost 1,000 individuals who may have been exposed to the virus, an action that led to the number of Ebola deaths in Nigeria being limited to just eight - then the UK with a far superior medical set up can surely better Nigeria's performance.

    You might be right actually; I was just discussing it with a doctor friend and he told me someone spent the weekend with their family before falling ill - yet none of the family caught it.

    all of them were visiting I believe, not 1 single nigerian death. But then they are a better country with sanitation and decent infrastructure. The best weapon against ebola is soap and running water which is something the infected countries have great difficulty with.

    she treated the missionary who died, she took her hazmat suit off wrong after cleaning the room. She walked into her hospital and said I think I have ebola, they fobbed her off telling her she was being silly, she went back a few hours later and they sent her by ambulance to another hospital for tests, she sat in a&e for hours waiting, when it was confirmed she was sent by another standard ambulance back to her hospital and put in isolation, she said the whole thing was a farce and she was in contact with at least 50 people, but she tried her best not to touch anything.

    I vaguely remember the Spanish Nurses Union or whatever losing the rag over Spanish authorities not being ready to cope with it.

    Shame Scotland didn't get the Independence Vote, we could close off our border!!! lol only joking, glad they stayed, I hope.....

    Two local Gps have gone to help and I'm thinking are they going to be quarantined before they fly back and again when they arrive or do we just have to keep your fingers crossed when you get your next doctor appointment. I'm pretty ignorant of Ebola so hopefully my fears are unfounded ?.

    Despite all the complaining we do about our health service they are still well good enough to tackle all of this viral stuff.

    seal em up and let em suffocate, don't think you'd get a badge for that.

    Hang on a minute if they have 3 suspected cases now, how many aid workers have just come back? It takes weeks to show itself so its not people the first case shared a plane with.
