Obeying orders from the White House, the CDC refused to take ebola seriously or order strict quarantines of anyone from the Ivory Coast and Liberian regions of Africa and was quite careless about ebola, minimizing the dangers from day one. And now we have a full blown epidemic which hits the nursing staff very, very, very hard. And even now, the CDC is dragging its feet on this issue, refusing to order immediate protocols to protect nurses and implementing this everywhere. This is Obama’s fault entirely and he remains silent about Africa and ebola instead of leading us, he is ignoring us and playing golf.
Obama, Abe discuss TPP, Ebola by phone: Japan stalled on ‘trade talks’ (the government there is extremely hostile to US imports into Japan which runs trade surpluses with us for the last 50+ years) and so Obama called the fascist, Abe, and also talked to him about ebola? What the hell? Ebola isn’t a problem for Japan. And Obama never talks about what to do about this, here, either.
Nation of the Dead continues with the only thing saving our nurses is if they have the same blood type as survivors of this plague who wish to donate blood to save them but there is LIMITED AMOUNTS of this blood available and how long will the few survivors donate this? It isn’t infinite! Second US Ebola Patient Identified as Young Texas Nurse
By evening, she had received a transfusion of plasma from Kent Brantly, a Texas physician who survived the virus, according to her pastor and the nonprofit medical mission group Samaritan’s Purse, Associated Press reported.
Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Monday that Pham was “clinically stable.”
Frieden apologized to officials at Texas Health Presbyterian hospital in Dallas. He said his comments Sunday that Pham’s infection was the result of a “breach of protocol” did not reflect on Pham or the hospital’s efforts.
“I apologize if people thought I was criticizing the hospital,” Frieden said at a news conference Monday. “And I feel awful that a health care worker became infected while helping an Ebola patient.”
This creep DID blame the nurse/victim. And never said anything nasty about the guy who deliberately carried it over to our shores and certainly didn’t criticize the ebola nations for doing little to stop this epidemic nor did he talk about the Netherlands which refuses to stop ebola flights from Africa.
All over Europe and the US, nurses are panicking since they are the ones most vulnerable: ‘Nurses are not protected, they’re not prepared to handle Ebola’: Angry nursing union says | Daily Mail Online
‘Nurses are not protected, they’re not prepared for Ebola’: Angry nursing union says NO US hospital can cope – and claim hazardous waste was piled to the CEILING of Thomas Eric Duncan’s room
National Nurses Union made allegations against Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas
There were no concrete protocols to deal with Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, nurses claimed
Union director RoseAnn DeMoro alleged her nurses were left unprotected and at the mercy of the killer virus
Nurses angered by CDC director Tom Frieden’s attempts to pass the blame to infected nurse Nina Pham
Nurses alleged they had to use medical tape to cover exposed necks because their suits were ill-equipped
‘No hospital in the United States can deal with Ebola,’ DeMoro said
CDC confirmed on Tuesday that 76 medics who treated Mr Duncan are being monitored for Ebola exposure
The nurses are right about all of this. There are no realistic CDC ebola protocols. And nurses go all over the hospitals which is where the disease will spread quickly like wildfire if nothing is done. Most Americans desperately want to quarantine African nations with ebola and all we got from the White House was sneers that this won’t work which is pure insanity. It DOES work and has been used for all history to stop the spread of disease. Pretending it doesn’t work is insanity.
I believe that the only ebola protocols that work is for nurses to wear ‘moon suits’ with air piped in to them and to have this thoroughly cleaned with strong disinfectants before disrobing. Even more, I believe when patients go into terminal decline when it is most infectious when they have massive explosive ejections from mouth and anus, they be abandoned to die or mercifully put under. This disease has to be terminated brutally, alas. You can’t do normal loving care of the dying with this disease anymore than in the Middle Ages.

The Ebola virus is killing 70 percent of those infected, and there could be as many as 10,000 new cases a week in West Africa by Dec. 1, a top official with the World Health Organization said Tuesday.
There are some signs of progress in West Africa, with new cases dropping in several areas that had been hit hard by the virus earlier this year, noted Bruce Aylward, WHO assistant director-general overseeing the organization’s response to the epidemic. But the disease is spreading across a broader geographical region, including along the border with Ivory Coast, and it continues to be rampant in national capitals.
The CDC announced that the man has tested positive for the disease, making him the first person to have discovered he had the virus while on U.S. soil, and they made it clear that he traveled from Liberia to America to visit family in Dallas.
“If we need to contact passengers we have a way. We’d call ourselves,” the CDC spokesperson said.
Immigration officers at Heathrow have been shaking hands with passengers on the first day of the emergency screening measures for Ebola.
Reports suggest the screening is being carried out on an “haphazard and voluntary basis” in apparent contradiction of health advice about contact with potential carriers of the deadly virus.
Travellers on connecting flights from West Africa – where the disease has killed over 4,000 people in Liberia and Sierra Leone – said they were being given the option of being screened for symptoms of the virus rather than being obliged to undergo checks.
Sorius Samura, 51, a documentary maker who had spent 10 days in Liberia making a film on the crisis, said the British authorities did not appear to be taking the situation seriously enough.
He said: “I’ve just come back from via Brussels and our flight was met by an airport official saying we might be screened.
