For the last 48 hours I have been very VERY worried.  My younger DD  
is manager of the lab at this hospital, and has been on duty almost  
continuously since her shift started Friday morning:

I'm glad that you are relieved of concern.  We have been done a great  
injustice by the media, spurred by some politicians, by portraying ebola  
as much more contagious than it is.  As I saw on Facebook, more people  
have been married to Kim Kardashian than have died of ebola in the U.S.  
  But fear and panic are doing us no good, either.

My worry was for a beloved family member who was *handling bodily  
fluids* of a possible Ebola patient.  Her hospital was one of six in  
the area which were designated for future Ebola patient care.  
However, they had not yet had all the scheduled training in donning  
protective gear, and other critical measures to protect themselves,  
other staff and the public.

She was on duty for 41 hours over a three day period, one of only  
two lab techs to perform tests on the patient's specimens.

I don't think my justifiable concern could be classified as panic.  
I'm fairly certain the two nurses in Dallas were being very careful.

The panic didn't appear to be in the healthcare sector.  They tend to be  
better informed.  No, it was in the news, on TV, radio, even in  
Congress.  It seems to be over now, and I hope it will stay that way.  
With our general state of health and our healthcare, nobody should be in  
serious danger from ebola, anyway.  IIRC, the one person who died was  
sent home from the hospital before he was diagnosed.  That shouldn't  
happen now that we have testing available.
