Efforts are under way to decontaminate the apartment building of the Big Apple’s first Ebola patient.
Cops moved people back around 9:15 am as two officers with the Sanitation Department’s Environmental Police Unit arrived on the scene and entered the building through a side entrance.
They were later joined by several people in plain-clothes who exited out of a truck belonging to the Bio-Recovery Corporation — a full service crime scene cleanup and bio remediation company.
Keep in mind that this man visited restaurants and stores and traveled on subways and in taxis before becoming symptomatic. Only his good judgment brought him into quarantine as he became contagious. (That has now changed: New York and New Jersey will now quarantine returning Ebola medicos.)
And yet if this man had requested a handgun permit, he’d have been turned down. (Via Drudge.)
