Tampa International doesn't receive DIRECT FLIGHTS from Western Africa.......but look at the potential other connecting flights from Europe that could hit our area....YIKES.. the next Ebola patient may be on a flight from London, not Liberia.

The CDC will hold a conference call with Florida hospitals Monday on best practices, Scott announced. The organization also has given Florida the green light to spend about $7 million in federal grant funding on protective suits for health care workers.

Really??? Do you have any idea how remote the chances are of you contracting ebola? It's a media driven story and you are buying into those that perpetuate fear in the American public for monetary gain...really just live your life and stop the hand ringing...the old quote "A coward dies a thousand deaths a hero only one"...
