    yet it is so easily spreading. How? Also the nurses that took care of Duncan are getting it, and his relatives that were living in the same apartment are not? how come? It does not jive.

    Many years ago, I contracted Hepatitis B while a surgical resident from a drug addicted patient who had sustained a gun shot wound to the chest. Seven on the surgical team were infected – one ultimately died. The cause? We believed at the time it resulted from a break in technique, probably in the disrobing of our surgical gear. If you remove your soiled clothing yourself, without help, it’s very easy to inadvertently get blood/fluids on your hands without even knowing it. From there, it’s a short, short distance to the mouth. Solution – removing protective clothing should always be “assisted” and carefully observed. Thanks for the question.
