U.S. Secretary of health warns there WILL be more cases of Ebola on American soil: no surprise. The laggard response in the first place, now that the disease has come here via an African man who hoped to become yet another illegal alien, brought it in with no trouble at all. And since Duncan came, there is still virtually no controls at all and government yap about this is now proven to be all lies. They are doing as little as possible even as the public demands more and more protection especially an end to travel without quarantine from African countries where this plague rages.
CNN Reporter Returning from Liberia ‘Horrified’ by Lack of Airport Ebola Screening IN A MAJOR US INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. Yes, the vaunted screening process does not exist. The reporter even stopped at the entryway to tell everyone she was traveling from Liberia and should be examined and they didn’t do anything, they didn’t even tell her what the symptoms are and what to do about it. All the other travelers with her who were in Liberia with her were not even asked if they were traveling out of Liberia.
The chaos and rage in Texas continues with a toxic mix of race relations hysteria and the people who have to deal with ebola patients getting more and more worried and enraged: Dallas deputy wife’s fury after CDC publicly announced his Ebola results before even telling HIM he was clear of the fatal disease which is quite enraging for the victim. On top of this, there is no proof he does not have the disease, there is a 21 day range for symptoms so he can’t be cleared immediately. Thus, the need for quarantine.
Madrid hospital staff quit over Ebola fears and I don’t blame them. The system has let them down. The need to minimize this plague for political reasons has led to no preparations for how to deal with handling diseased people. Instead, hospitals, ambulances and police are expected to figure this out individually. This is insane. I was one of the very, very first people to get the Hong Kong flu and it was quite deadly at the beginning, it nearly killed me, and I got if from a patient in an ambulance!
British doctor who spent three weeks confined to her flat after treating Ebola victims is now returning to Liberia to continue fighting the outbreak which is very brave of her and I am glad that Britain put her under quarantine but of course, they aren’t doing this with everyone from that same region, passing through their London airport.
Dallas hospital insists Ebola victim had the best care ‘regardless of nationality or ability to pay’ after his family claimed he was treated badly because he was a ‘poor black man’ after the family (who are, I assume, all here originally rather illegally, overstaying visas) are now whining about the initial care he got. He never told the staff the first time that he handled a dying ebola woman. He just said he was from Liberia and due to our government refusing to issue any official warnings, the staff didn’t take note of this and isolate him because the CDC and Federal government issued no orders to do this very thing.
I would assume, if anyone from Liberia was put in quarantine by a hospital just because he was from Liberia, the professional rabble rousers would be whining about that, too. The need to complain no matter what is irritating a lot of taxpayers who paid for the entire care this interloper got for free. The chaos he caused is even more expensive.
Now on to this story: Briton dies of suspected Ebola in Macedonia, his hotel sealed off — RT News
A Macedonian government spokesman told the BBC that a companion of the late Briton told the local authorities that they had travelled straight from the UK and had not visited countries affected by Ebola
The ambulance crew and the hotel staff were isolated to prevent spreading of infection, and the hotel building was also sealed off.
The problem with ebola is this: its initial symptoms and collective symptoms is very close to symptoms of other medical conditions making it hellishly hard to diagnose without extensive tests which are hard to perform because touching the patient is deadly to staff. This is why nipping this at the original source is so highly important. AIDS flew under the radar for a long time due to the deaths being caused by various rare cancers.
So now we have this story: Ebola: ‘British man dies of deadly virus in Macedonia and one other is taken ill’
Dr Jovanka Kostovska, Macedonia’s head of infection control, said the Briton had ‘all symptoms of Ebola, which raises suspicions with this patient’. But the academic added the dead man had also been seen drinking. She said: ‘We got information from several places that the patient frequently and in large quantities consumed alcohol, which can give a similar clinical picture and other diseases’. A second man, 72, a friend of the deceased, has also shown symptoms of Ebola, she said.
Since throwing up is a symptom, airline passengers are now very leery about anyone doing this for good reason since the US government led by Obama refuses to screen people flying about the planet spreading germs: Hazmat team meet US plane in Dominican Republic after passenger’s joke after he threw up, he announced to everyone, he had ebola. The cabin crew panicked, the passengers became hysterical and the pilots turned the plane to the nearest airport and waited for suited up medical pros to come in and evacuate the man who kept saying, ‘I was joking!’
He is now under arrest. Pictures taken by passengers shows people covering their faces with whatever they had and then freaking out while kept on the plane for more than two hours and then being processed getting off. It would be infinitely easier to make life a bit tougher for Africans where the disease is then to destroy our society trying to stop it HERE, not THERE.
The liberal press and media continues to lie about all this. I googled ‘ebola fears overblown’ and got these: West Africa Travel Ban: Why Ebola Fears Over US-Bound Flights Are Overblown, the article explaining how we are supposed to be calm and happy and not stop Africans with ebola from flying all over kingdom come. From August: Ebola fears in U.S. real but overblown: USA Today.
The very liberal Mother Jones had this insane story back in August, too: Here’s the Science to Refute Right-Wing Ebola Scaremongering … another August lunatic story from the left: Ebola Outbreak Fears Overblown – Epidemic Not Likely – The Inquisitr.
Also from August, the Globe and Mail: Ebola’s exaggerated fear being fed by stigma and stereotypes which has the storyline that if we want to stop diseases, we aren’t allowed to do this if the vector is in Africa because that is racist.
Home central for left wing propaganda ran this story in October when it was abundantly obvious ebola was in the US: GOP Lawmakers Continue To Stoke Ebola Fears – Huffington Post.
Way back in August, right wingers also mocked the epidemic claiming it was a ploy for the government to control us, oh my! America, Ebola, and Fear: Overblown Panic in America is a hilarious story in the Free Republic whining about federal controls and dictatorship. The writer claimed that ebola would never, ever come to the US. Which was insane. All diseases fly everywhere very fast in the last 50 years.
▶ Ebola Panic in US is Overblown – YouTube: this NYU Medical Ethics clown makes fun of ebola telling us we are fools to worry about it. The naivety of the doctor who is an expert and the young reporter is astonishing. Obviously, either of them know a thing about how epidemics spread. I, alas, learned the hard way back in 1968.
The ethics doctor says that illegal aliens can’t bring it in because ‘They will all DIE before making it across the border’ which is ridiculous. The disease takes more than two weeks to present any symptoms and people are quite capable of traveling thousands of miles during that time frame. Both ends of the political spectrum, but from opposite ideological beliefs, are credulous about the ebola epidemic and in denial about what this epidemic means. There is likely going to finally be a vaccination for this disease and not a minute too soon. But then, the completely crazy anti-vaccinationists will pour out of the woodwork wailing about that cure, too!
