Response to uppityperson (Reply #23)

24. The situtation has been rapidly worsening.

It wasn't until July/August that the case count really started to increase rapidly, with a total of about 3,000 cases by the end of August.

I believe as of today the new situation report will report about 13,000 cases, an increase of about 3,000 in one week? So there are many more people involved trying to quash this, and there is more of an issue involved with more risk from returning workers.

The case of Mr. Duncan was the first domestically acquired infection, and the failures there have forced a lot of policy changes. People are reacting to real risks. Until the unfortunate Dallas nurses and Dr. Spencer, we did not have to worry about ill HCW wandering the streets. Now we do.

Things change, people react.
