We may truly never know who was the patient zero.

And how did a 2yr old contract it?

The disease may be contracted by ingesting contaminated material, or absorbing the virus through a break in the skin, among other things. Migratory fruit bats have been shown to be a reservoir for filoviruses, and it may be that the child either ate contaminated fruit, or played in an area where there were bat droppings (or for that matter, a dead bat).

Kids, from observation, are pretty much the same until culturally imprinted with behavioural standards, and at that age are constantly tasting things or just sticking their fingers in their mouths or rubbing their eyes. Contact with the contaminated material followed by mucous membrane contact would be all it took.

From the article you posted from Forbes:

First, there will be a lot of misplaced panic. But there’s no reason for most Americans to fear of Ebola’s wider spread. While Ebola is highly infectious, it is not very contagious.

This directly contradicts the latest information from CDC issued yesterday. In fact, this strain of Ebola is highly contagious.

Also, the euphemism for the CDC's "sweeping powers" should be noted-- "tools."

I caught that as well. ‘Tools’ instead of ‘police state powers in affected regions’.
