Ebola, Elections and a little slight of hand. It seems that once the mid-term electons are over, the Ebola scare is too. Within days after the election, Texas Department of State Health Services Commissioner Dr. David Lakey and Gov. Rick Perry insist that health care workers returning from Ebola-stricken areas can simply self-quarantine. The guidelines are recommended by the blue-ribbon task force, which Perry created after the nation’s first case of Ebola was diagnosed in Dallas, Texas and set forth nuanced “exposure” categories.
