Most of the local Ebola coverage I’ve seen has been along the lines of: “Everyone relax. We’ve got this.” Though I wasn’t able to watch TV last night, because I didn’t have power. Have the TV stations gotten a bit more alarmist? An alert FrontBurnervian points us to this story from the Daily Mail. Makes it seems like we’re not exactly running a tight ship. People coming and going from the apartment of the patient. Something like 100 people exposed to the guy. That story mentions the CDC hiring a crew to power-wash around the apartment. I don’t know what the Gateway Pundit is, but they’re saying that the power-washing of Ebola vomit on the sidewalk wasn’t exactly the most sanitary operation. But I’m sure everything’s going to be okay. Right?
UPDATE (11:10) I wrote the above before I looked at the paper today. The Morning News is showing what it does best and what no other local media organization can do like it does: flood the zone. They’ve got reporters covering every angle of the news, from the scene at the patient’s apartment to the missteps made by Presby. Very solid work. I was especially taken by this atmospheric piece written by Avi Selk.
