Pham will reportedly be moved to an isolation unit at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

The follow-up question for many was “why?”

@jaketapper @elizcohencnn Why? Is she sicker or is her hospital not capable of handling Ebola?

@jaketapper @elizcohencnn Here's the question we all want to know though…. WHY? Are they closing down the #Ebola unit at #Presby?

@jaketapper @elizcohencnn Has her health gotten worse…?

But, hey, it’s cool. They are quarantined and all.

I don't understand why Duncan's family is quarantined in a contaminated apartment. Boggles the mind.

Take a look at the food delivery to the supposedly quarantined family of the Dallas Ebola patient.

BREAKING: hygeine issue within #Ebola patient residence being considered. Food being delivered.

Yep.

@CindyReynolds Where eyewitnesses saw him throwing up when the ambulance came…nearby children playing. Pro-tip: Plan for the worse.

@Cameron_Gray @RBPundit And did you see the crew "cleaning" the parking lot? Not a hazmat suit in sight.

— Blondie203235 (@Blondie203235) October 2, 2014

As Twitchy reported, a news chopper caught a clean-up crew outside of the Ebola patient’s apartment. And it was enraging and outrageous.

And now this. It’s truly unreal.

@connortryan @nypost no gloves?

— forrest freeman (@ForrestFreeman0) October 2, 2014

@connortryan @nypost ok, y isn't this guy in a mask & gloves & the proper clothes? this shit is no joking matter

— dawn de costa (@memasbabes) October 2, 2014

Bingo. There are precautions taken for ridiculous things. And this? Whatever!

@Cameron_Gray @RBPundit No gloves, nothing! This is crazy! We wore disposable suits while cleaning paint booths.

— CJSAY (@Sr4liberty) October 2, 2014

@connortryan @nypost Shouldn't this be done by someone at the State's Health Services Department? Shouldn't he have a mask on?

@connortryan @DanRiehl Kinda concerned about lack of any protection.

@KraftyWurker @mkues65 @Cameron_Gray @RBPundit Seriously, Officials are NOT taking EBOLA very seriously.!! OMG so scary.

Frightening.

"Don't worry. It's highly unlikely to come to the US." -> "Don't worry. He didn't have symptoms." -> "Don't worry about the clean up crew."

— RB (@RBPundit) October 2, 2014

With every new piece of information suggesting we should have worried before, we keep getting told not to worry.

— RB (@RBPundit) October 2, 2014

That’s right. And an exit much-needed reminder evidently:

#YesAllHazMatSuits

Repeat often.
