Officials say she has no symptoms of Ebola.

A blood sample was retrieved from her cruise ship via helicopter yesterday.

The cruise ship returned to Texas overnight.

    Why was this woman even allowed on the cruise ship? Another CDC blunder …. Belize has a travel ban but the US waiting for it to become an epidemic befire instituting a ban because Obama doesn’t want to prevent aid from going TO Africa? This makes no sense —
