EBOLA patients flown into the USA from Africa
August 1, 2014 One ebola patient is being flown into Georgia from Africa.
Ebola is far more deadly than the Mainstream Media is reporting. Ebola virus has been known to mutate and become airborne. The CDC is knowingly breaking their own regulations and protocols.
The Ebola virus has been documented in scientific journals of medicine to be unstable and has mutated and become airborne before in the past during outbreaks. No one can guarantee safety to anyone surrounding the Ebola Virus.
Ebola is airbourne.
You are being told its not, but it is.
An American doctor infected with Ebola asked that an experimental treatment be given to his colleague because there was only enough for one person.
Dr. Kent Brantly joined a medical team responding to the Ebola outbreak. Late July he realized he had symptoms. His condition has worsened.
An experimental treatment was flown in, but Brantly insisted doctors use it to treat his colleague, Nancy Writebol. There was only enough for one person.
However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola.
The CDC are taking one of the Ebola patients onto an airliner (a violation of protocol), that they have removed from the Ebola Containment Area (a violation of protocol), to Atlanta Georgia USA (a major metropolitan area-another violation of regulations & protocol) and it is NOT SAFE!
Two American aid workers are suffering from Ebola in Liberia.
One is being flown to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
It would be the first time the disease is brought into the country.

Ebola patient coming to U.S. as aid workers' health worsens
CHICAGO/WINSTON-SALEM N.C. (Reuters) - A U.S. aid worker who was infected with the deadly Ebola virus while working in West Africa will be flown to the United States to be treated in a high-security ward at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, hospital officials said on Thursday. The aid worker, whose name has not been released, will be moved in the next several days to a special isolation unit at Emory. The unit was set up in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
CDC spokeswoman Barbara Reynolds said her agency was working with the U.S. State Department to facilitate the transfer.
Reynolds said the CDC was not aware of any Ebola patient ever being treated in the United States, but five people in the past decade have entered the country with either Lassa Fever or Marburg Fever, hemorrhagic fevers similar to Ebola.
News of the transfer follows reports of the declining health of two infected U.S. aid workers, Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol, who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia on behalf of North Carolina-based Christian relief groups Samaritan's Purse and SIM.
CNN and ABC News reported that a second American infected with Ebola was to be flown to the United States. CNN identified the U.S.-bound patients as Brantly and Writebol. Reuters could not independently confirm the reports.
Amber Brantly, the wife of Dr. Brantly, said in a statement: "I remain hopeful and believing that Kent will be healed from this dreadful disease."
Earlier on Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the State Department was working with the CDC on medical evacuations of infected American humanitarian aid workers.
The outbreak in West Africa is the worst in history, having killed more than 700 people since February. On Thursday, the CDC issued a travel advisory urging people to avoid all non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the epicenter of the outbreak.
Brantly and Writebol "were in stable but grave" condition as of early Thursday morning, the relief organizations said. A spokeswoman for the groups could not confirm whether the patient being transferred to Emory was one of their aid workers.
CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in a conference call that transferring gravely ill patients has the potential to do more harm than good.
Meanwhile, the National Institutes of Health plans in mid-September to begin testing an experimental Ebola vaccine on people after seeing encouraging results in pre-clinical trials on monkeys, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIH's allergy and infectious diseases unit, said in an email.
In its final stages, Ebola causes external and internal bleeding, vomiting and diarrhea. About 60 percent of people infected in the current outbreak are dying from the illness.
Writebol, 59, received an experimental drug doctors hope will improve her health, SIM said. Brantly, 33, received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who survived Ebola with the help of Brantly's medical care, said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan's Purse.
Frieden could not comment on the specifics of either treatment but said: "We have reviewed the evidence of the treatments out there and don't find any treatment that has proven effectiveness against Ebola."
World Ebola fears grow with Europe and Asia on alert
London (AFP) - Fears that the west African Ebola outbreak could spread to other continents grew with European and Asian countries on alert and a leading medical charity warning the epidemic was out of control.
Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said the crisis gripping Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone would only get worse and warned there was no overarching strategy to handle the world's worst outbreak of the disease.
US Christian charity Samaritan's Purse was temporarily withdrawing its non-essential staff from Liberia, it said, citing regional "instability and ongoing security issues".
Hong Kong announced quarantine measures for suspected cases, although one woman arriving from Africa with possible symptoms tested negative, while the EU said it was ready to deal with the threat.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has held talks with global health officials on potential measures to halt the spread of the disease.
In Britain, where one person has tested negative for the disease, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said it was regarded as "a very serious threat".
An emergency meeting had decided that the best approach was to provide "additional resources to deal with the disease at source" in West Africa, he added.
Ebola can kill victims within days, causing severe fever and muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and, in some cases, organ failure and unstoppable bleeding.
Since March, there have been 1,201 cases of Ebola and 672 deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
The US Peace Corps announced Wednesday it was pulling hundreds of volunteers from the three countries.
There are currently 102 Peace Corps volunteers in Guinea working on agriculture, education and health, 108 in Liberia and 130 in Sierra Leone.
- EU 'equipped and ready' -
The European Union is equipped and ready to treat victims should the deadly virus be found in its 28 member states, an EU source said in Brussels.
"We cannot rule out the possibility that an infected person arrives in Europe but the EU has the means to track and contain any outbreak rapidly," the source said.
The isolation and negative testing of a suspected case in Valencia in Spain showed that the "system worked", added the source.
"The level of contamination on the ground is extremely worrying and we need to scale up our action before many more lives are lost," said EU Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva.
In Hong Kong, a densely populated city previously scarred by disease outbreaks such as the 2003 SARS epidemic, health officials confirmed they would quarantine as a precautionary measure any visitors from Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia who showed fever symptoms.
One woman arriving in the southern Chinese city from Africa, who showed symptoms including fever and vomiting, has tested negative for Ebola.
Australia said Thursday it was well prepared in the unlikely event that the Ebola virus reached its shores. Australia has already warned against travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
On Tuesday a meeting of the Communicable Diseases Network of Australia was convened, including key infectious diseases doctors and state and federal health authorities, to discuss ways to respond if Ebola was detected.
"While the possibility of Ebola coming to Australia is very low, we are closely monitoring the overseas outbreak and Australia's domestic response," chief medical officer Chris Baggoley said.
All border protection agencies were on alert for possible Ebola symptoms in people arriving by air or sea, Baggoley confirmed.
Meanwhile, Thai health authorities said they had ordered all hospitals to monitor patients for any symptoms, particularly nationals or foreign tourists who had been in the outbreak area.
- Epidemic 'out of control' -
Bart Janssens, MSF's director of operations, warned that governments and global bodies had no "overarching view" of how to tackle the outbreak.
"This epidemic is unprecedented, absolutely out of control and the situation can only get worse, because it is still spreading, above all in Liberia and Sierra Leone, in some very important hotspots," he said.
"If the situation does not improve fairly quickly, there is a real risk of new countries being affected," he told La Libre Belgique newspaper.
A British doctor volunteering in Sierra Leone treating Ebola patients told Metro newspaper that medical staff were swamped.
"The main challenge here, though, is that the health authorities just don't have the infrastructure to cope. They're overwhelmed," Benjamin Black said.
A top doctor in charge of a Sierra Leone treatment centre died of the virus earlier this week.
In Canada, local media reported that a Canadian doctor had put himself in quarantine as a precaution after spending weeks in west Africa treating patients with the virus alongside an American doctor, who is now infected.
A spokesman for the French foreign ministry said they were offering technical support and expertise on the ground in west Africa.
And Liberia announced it was shutting all schools and placing "non-essential" government workers on 30 days' leave.
Togo-based pan-African airline ASKY, which serves 20 destinations, on Tuesday halted all flights to and from Liberia and Sierra Leone following the death of a passenger from the virus.
The 40-year-old man, who travelled from Liberia, died in Lagos on Friday in Nigeria's first confirmed death from Ebola.
The virus crossing borders for the first time by plane could lead to new flight restrictions aimed at containing outbreaks, the world aviation agency said.
"Until now (the virus) had not impacted commercial aviation, but now we're affected," ICAO secretary general Raymond Benjamin said.
"We will have to act quickly."

What Ebola on a Plane Means for the U.S.
Usually Ebola victims get too sick, too quickly to travel—so the disease stays relatively contained. But now that an infected man was able to fly from Liberia to Nigeria, the game has changed.
The unrelenting Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa became decidedly scarier for Americans this week when someone who had flown the 1,000 miles from Liberia, where the epidemic is ongoing, to Lagos, Nigeria, where no cases had occurred, died of the infection.
According to The Daily Beast, naturalized American citizen Patrick Sawyer became ill on the plane after it left Liberia; once he landed, he went directly to the hospital, was isolated, and died soon thereafter. In response, the West African airline carrier he had used, ASKY, headquartered in nearby Togo, has suspended all flights into and out of Liberia and Guinea as well as Sierra Leone. Until Mr. Sawyer’s death, all 1,201 cases reported to the WHO through July 27, including the 672 deaths, had occurred in one of these three adjacent West Africa countries.
The single case ups the fear factor for one simple reason. The working hypothesis till now had been that Ebola would more or less stay put, spreading town-to-town, affecting only neighboring countries, exactly because it is so fierce. The time from infection to severe illness is typically so fast that it is unlikely that a person would be able to get it together enough to go to the airport while contagious—or else, would be so obviously unwell as to draw attention to himself.
Sawyer’s 1,000-mile flight changes this. The epidemic had been slowly expanding over five months, demonstrating that—despite headlines suggesting otherwise—it is not that contagious, except for those in sustained intimate contact. In contrast, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic infected 60 million Americans in just about the same five-month period of time. But now, Ebola has moved beyond its standard slow motion, person-to-person transmission. Rather than inching along, it has hopped.
Stated another way, geographic distance is a critical advantage in the world of epidemics, as well as in war. In WWI, Georges Clemenceau wrote to President Wilson and David Lloyd George, the English prime minister: “America is far away, protected by the ocean… You are both sheltered; we [the French] are not.” The same geographic barrier had seemed Ebola-proof, until now.
To add to the gloom, several high profile Ebola cases have occurred in health-care workers treating patients with the disease. Both Samuel Brisbane, a Liberian physician and Ebola specialist, and Sheikh Umar Khan, the lead Ebola expert in Sierra Leone, have died in recent days. In addition, two American health-care workers dedicated to working in Liberia and treating patients with Ebola, Dr. Kent Brantly and nurse Nancy Writebol, are hospitalized in isolation in Liberia. Their condition remains extremely serious.
The CDC, which has been active in supporting work in West Africa but calm about prospects for cases in the U.S., issued a faintly alarming statement in a Health Advisory released Monday. They wrote that, “while the possibility of infected persons entering the U.S. remains low, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that healthcare providers in the U.S. should consider EVD [Ebola virus disease] in the differential diagnosis of febrile illness, with compatible symptoms, in any person with recent (within 21 days) travel history in the affected countries and consider isolation of those patients meeting these criteria, pending diagnostic testing.” In CDC-speak this is mostly caution and not fear—but it is the first time they have moved this tone into the first paragraph of an Ebola advisory, and the first time they have carpet-bombed practitioners nationwide with emails and faxes.
Despite the rising gloom, the future for the public’s health actually is only slightly more grim than it has been until now. This does not mean that the tragedy is near an end—there surely will be more cases and more deaths in the weeks to come, as occurs with any epidemic. But the Sawyer case, combined with the heartless parsimony of all lethal outbreaks, means that the truth will out and soon. Much of the understanding of just how bad it's going to be rests on the fate of the hundreds of passengers and flight attendants who shared the ASKY flight with Patrick Sawyer.
If, as is likely, none of them become ill, this will prove that the disease is, as suspected, very difficult to transmit unless one comes into close contact with blood or urine or stool. If however a few passengers do develop Ebola, then the ocean may indeed no longer protect the United States.
Given the incubation period of the virus, we should know by the end of the week. My guess is this will remain an African tragedy and not threaten larger geographic swathes. But the deeper tragedy is that it seems to have taken the Stewart death and the harsh fates of Dr. Brantly and Ms. Writebol to finally alert people to this devastating epidemic of Ebola virus. In other words, we had to wait till we were scared senseless to pay attention; in the meantime many have died. Though the epidemics may change year to year, the point remains the same: Making decisions based on fearfulness is awful public policy.
Executive Order: Amendment to E.O. 13295 Relating to Certain Influenza Viruses and Quarantinable Communicable Diseases
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 361(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264(b)), it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Based upon the recommendation of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Surgeon General, and for the purpose set forth in section 1 of Executive Order 13295 of April 4, 2003, section 1 of such order is amended by adding at the end thereof the following new subsection:
"(c) Influenza caused by novel or reemergent influenza viruses that are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic.".
Sec. 2. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, entities, officers, employees or agents, or any other person.

THE WHITE HOUSE,
April 1, 2005.
Bush Authorizes Use of Quarantine Powers in Cases of Bird Flu
WASHINGTON, April 1 (AP) - President Bush signed an executive order on Friday authorizing the government to impose a quarantine to deal with any outbreak of a particularly lethal variation of influenza now found in Southeast Asia.
The order is intended to deal with a type of influenza commonly referred to as bird flu. Since January 2004, an estimated 69 people, primarily in Vietnam, have contracted the disease. But Dr. Keiji Fukuda, a flu expert at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, has said he suspects there are more cases.
The fatality rate among those reported to have contracted the disease is about 70 percent.
Health officials around the world are trying to monitor the virus because some flu pandemics are thought to have begun with birds.
Mr. Bush's order added pandemic influenza to the government's list of communicable diseases for which a quarantine is authorized. It gives the government authority to detain or isolate a passenger arriving in the United States to prevent an infection from spreading.
The authority would be used only if the passenger posed a threat to public health and refused to cooperate with a voluntary request, the Department of Health and Human Services said.
The quarantine list was amended in 2003 to include SARS, or severe acute respiratory syndrome, which killed nearly 800 people in 2003. Other diseases on the list are cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever and viral hemorrhagic fevers.
Quarantine and isolation were last used during the SARS outbreak in 2003. The last large-scale quarantine was during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-19, though there have been lesser quarantines - for instance, travelers coming off airliners or cruise ships who have been exposed to curable diseases.
Jennifer Morcone, a spokeswoman for the health centers, said Mr. Bush's executive order was intended to prepare for all options.
The Public Health Service, Ms. Morcone said, would typically recommend voluntary home quarantine when possible. In general, the government defers to state and local authorities in their use of quarantine powers and would work with them in case of an outbreak, she said.
As Ebola Fear Increases, Here's A Map Of America's Quarantine Stations
As the largest-ever outbreak of Ebola rages on in a cluster of West African nations, the planned evacuation of at least one infected American to the United States raises the question: Are we equipped to deal with the disease here?
The answer, in short, is yes — very well. A widespread Ebola outbreak here is "not in the cards," the CDC director recently told reporters.
That's partially because the United States has excellent infection control procedures and facilities. Among those facilities is a network of quarantine stations, where the CDC can legally detain anyone who may have been exposed to cholera, diptheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, SARS, new strains of flu, or — relevantly — viral hemmorhagic fevers like Ebola.
Here's a map showing where those quarantine stations are:
A Brief History Of Our Quarantine System
A yellow fever outbreak led to the country's first quarantine center and hospital, set up in Philadelphia in 1799. In 1944, a new law gave the federal government the authority to quarantine people, a responsibility formally taken over by the CDC in 1967.
In the 1970s, according to the CDC, the number of quarantine stations was reduced " from 55 to 8 because infectious diseases were thought to be a thing of the past."
But within the past decade, fears of bioterrorism after September 11 and the 2003 SARS epidemic prompted the U.S. to more than double the number of quarantine stations. There are now 20 scattered across the U.S., primarily at " ports of entry and land-border crossings where international travelers arrive."
Plane arrives in W. Africa to evacuate Americans infected with Ebola
A U.S. medical rescue team has arrived in West Africa to evacuate two Americans seriously ill with the deadly Ebola virus, doctors with Emory University Hospital said on Friday.
Medics from the air ambulance have deemed Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol stable enough to transport. The small private jet can carry only one patient at a time. It was undetermined on Friday who would come back first.
Both patients will be treated in a secure isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Officials expect them to arrive by early next week.
The medical evacuations were arranged by the faith-based humanitarian group Samaritan's Purse, but are being facilitated by the State Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
It will mark the first time that an Ebola patient has been known to be treated in the United States.

Monsanto invests in Ebola treatment drug company as pandemic spreads
A global outbreak of deadly Ebola is underway and has crossed national borders. One infected victim of the disease flew on international flights, vomiting on board and exposing hundreds of people to the deadly virus which can be transmitted through airborne particles. Ebola has an 8-10 day incubation period, meaning thousands of people could be carrying it right now and spreading it across the cities of the world without even knowing it.
Ebola could become a global pandemic. Passengers in Hong Kong and the UK have already shown symptoms of the disease and are being tested.
There are NO KNOWN TREATMENTS for human infections.
Ebola causes cells in the body to self-destruct, resulting in massive internal and external bleeding.
A top Ebola doctor died from Ebola. Although well trained in infectious disease, even he underestimated the ability to leap from person to person.
Monsanto and Dept. of Defense help fund pharma company that could earn billions from Ebola treatment
There are some experimental drugs under development by pharma companies that show some promise, but nothing is commercialized yet.
One fascinating development worth investigating further is that TEKMIRA Pharmaceuticals, a company working on an anti-Ebola drug, just received a $1.5 million cash infusion from none other than Monsanto. Click here to read the press release, which states "Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing novel RNAi therapeutics and providing its leading lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery technology to pharmaceutical partners."
The money from Monsanto is reportedly related to the company's developed of RNAi technology used in agriculture. The deal is valued at up to $86.2 million, according to the WSJ.
Another press release about Tekmira reveals a $140 million contract with the U.S. military for Ebola treatment drugs:
Additional Tekmira partnership are listed at this Tekmira web page.
Not to invoke any charges of collusion or conspiracy here, but a whole lot of people are going to have raised eyebrows over the fact that Monsanto just happened to be giving a cash infusion to a key pharma company working on an Ebola cure right in the middle of a highly-publicized Ebola outbreak which could create huge market demand for the drugs. The fact that the U.S. Department of Defense is also involved with all this is going to have alternative news websites digging hard for additional links.
Sadly, the history of medicine reveals that drug companies, the CDC and the WHO have repeatedly played up the severity of disease outbreaks in order to promote sales of treatment drugs. I'm not saying this outbreak isn't very real and very alarming, of course. It is real. But we always have to be suspicious when windfalls profits just happen to line up for certain corporations following global outbreaks of infectious disease. Vaccine manufacturers, remember, made billions off the false swine flu scare, and tens of millions of dollars in stockpiled swine flu vaccines later had to be destroyed by the governments that panicked and purchased them.

Ebola patients to land at Dobbins Reserve Air Base GA
Stars and Stripes
Americans infected with the deadly Ebola virus will land at Dobbins Reserve Air Base in Marietta, Ga., en route to medical facilities.
“The State Department, together with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is facilitating a medical evacuation for two U.S. citizens who have been infected by Ebola in West Africa. The safety and security of U.S. citizens is our paramount concern. Every precaution is being taken to move the patients safely and securely, to provide critical care en route on a non-commercial aircraft, and to maintain strict isolation upon arrival in the United States,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement Friday.
Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters Friday that aircraft carrying the patients will land at Dobbins.
“We were asked by the State Department if we could provide an airfield for the patients to land in. I think part of it has to do with the safety and security of a military installation,” Kirby said. “The limit of our involvement is to provide an airfield for the planes to land.”
Kirby said the infected people will not be flying aboard a U.S. military aircraft, and no American military personnel will interact with the patients.
The patients and medical personnel are “simply using the runway, that’s it,” Kirby said.
Kirby did not provide an arrival schedule, but the State Department said the evacuations will take place “over the coming days.”
From Dobbins, the patients will be transported to medical facilities where they will be treated and kept in isolation, according to officials.
“CDC protocols and equipment are used for these kinds of medical evacuations so that they are carried out safely, thereby protecting the patient and the American public, as has been done with similar medical evacuations in the past,” Harf said in her statement.
Officials have not disclosed names or other details about the patients due to privacy considerations.
Kirby said the Army has researchers in Liberia who have been doing Ebola-related work “for some time,” but he did not have any additional information about who the researchers are or the scope of their work.
What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
August 1, 2014 by Jon Rappoport, nomorefakenews.com
This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years.
What exactly have they been doing?
Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?
Why do we have reports that the government of Sierra Leone has recently told Tulane researchers to stop this testing?
Have Tulane researchers and their associates attempted any experimental treatments (e.g., injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?
The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.
Is this purely defensive research? Or as we have seen in the past, is this research being covertly used to develop offensive bioweapons?
For the last several years, researchers from Tulane University have been active in the African areas where Ebola is said to have broken out in 2014.
These researchers are working with other institutions, one of which is USAMRIID, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, a well-known center for biowar research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
In Sierra Leone, the Tulane group has been researching new diagnostic tests for hemorrhagic fevers.
Note: Lassa Fever, Ebola, and other labels are applied to a spectrum of illness that result in hemorrhaging.

Infected Ebola patient being flown to Atlanta
Are health authorities risking a U.S. outbreak?
August 01, 2014 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
A patient (actually 3 patiets, 1 to Texas also) infected with Ebola being flown into the United States from west Africa to be held for medical examination and treatment at Emory University in Atlanta.
One patient is American doctor who was recently infected with the disease (and 2 aid workers).
This is the first time in history that a level-4 biohazard infectious agent is being transported by air into a large U.S. city while still multiplying inside a living patient. This startling revelation brings up all sorts of questions, some sinister. Here are some of the thoughts going through people's minds on this right now: (edit)
Why are they bringing an infected Ebola patient into the USA?
Do they want to start a pandemic here? (very likely, almost certain)
They are going to use this guy as a human guinea pig to run medical experiments on him, hoping to produce a profitable treatment for Ebola.
Isnt transporting an infected patient by air just begging for a pandemic outbreak across the United States?
The Department of Defense (they are the ones who ordered this) needs the body so they can harvest newer strains of Ebola as part of their viral weaponization program.
I am just posting pretty much ALL the info I am getting.
You must discern for yourself. PRAY. DO NOT believe WHO or CDC
Why You Shouldn't Freak Out About Ebola Patients Coming to the U.S.
For months, the Ebola epidemic was a terrible problem isolated in Africa. Then news broke of two sick Americans being airlifted back for treatment, bringing Ebola to the U.S. for the first time ever. On purpose. Cue fear, cue outrage—all of it misplaced. It's going to be fine.
Of course, Ebola is very deadly if you do catch it; up to 90 percent of patients die from the illness. Aside from experimental vaccines and serums, there is no cure either. That's understandably scary, but the chances of Ebola spreading through the U.S.—with its modern hospitals and healthcare system—is so incredibly low that it's a near-impossibility.
Still worried? Okay, okay. Let's run through how Ebola spreads, and the technology we have to prevent it.
How to catch (or probably not catch) Ebola
Unlike even your run-of-the-mill flu virus, Ebola doesn't survive well outside of the body. It could only spread through direct contact with bodily fluids, usually blood or stool, which I don't know about you, but I tend to avoid already. Ebola is also not contagious during its incubation period, meaning you can only get sick from people who already appear to be sick. Granted, the symptoms are vague and flu-like, but the bottom line is as long as you avoid the wrong kind of contact with someone who's ill, you're in the clear.
That Ebola can only be transmitted this way means the people most at risk for contracting it are family members and caretakers of patients. Indeed, a number of doctors and nurses in Africa have gotten sick from caring for Ebola patients. In the U.S., however, we have the facilities and equipment to protect healthcare workers, so bringing over two patients poses minimal risk to everyone else.
How to fly an Ebola patient halfway around the world
As you might expect, the Ebola patients won't be coming home in coach. Earlier this week, the CDC's medical charter plane look off from Cartersville, Georgia bound for Liberia, where it'll retrieve the Americans. It's no ordinary jet. The Gulfstream is equipped with an Aeromedical Biological Containment System, a tent that isolates the patient from the rest of the flight crew. Here is what it looks like:

American infected with virus condition worsening
August 1, 2014 Liberia - condition of healthcare worker Nancy Writebol, an American infected with Ebola, had taken a turn for the worse. Dr. Kent Brantly, an American doctor with Samaritan’s Purse who works with Writebol, is also battling the virus. Here’s the full statement from Emory: Emory University Hospital has been informed that there are plans to transfer a patient with Ebola virus infection to its special facility containment unit within the next several days. We do not know at this time when the patient will arrive. Emory University Hospital has a specially built isolation unit set up in collaboration with the CDC to treat patients who are exposed to certain serious infectious diseases. It is physically separate from other patient areas and has unique equipment and infrastructure that provide an extraordinarily high level of clinical isolation. It is one of only four such facilities in the country. Emory University Hospital physicians, nurses and staff are highly trained in the specific and unique protocols and procedures necessary to treat and care for this type of patient. For this specially trained staff, these procedures are practiced on a regular basis throughout the year so we are fully prepared for this type of situation.

Airports On Alert To Look For Passengers With Ebola Symptoms
Plans Underway To Retrieve Americans Sick With Ebola From Africa
Newark Liberty and John F. Kennedy airports are among 20 ports of entry locations in the U.S. with quarantine stations that have been staffed with health officials trained to look for symptoms of Ebola in passengers.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it will evaluate any travelers with signs of dangerous infectious diseases and isolate them when necessary.
U.S. government seeking to test Ebola vaccine on humans
The U.S. government will begin testing on people an experimental Ebola vaccine as early as September, after seeing positive results from tests on primates.
The National Institutes of Health's infectious disease unit is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to put the vaccine into trial as quickly as possible.
Ebola infected doctor Kent Brantly lands in US
2 August 2014 morning - The ambulance carrying Dr Kent Brantly arrived at Emory University Hospital.
US doctor Brantly infected with Ebola Liberia arrived in Atlanta, Georgia.
Dr Kent Brantly arrived in USA a specially equipped private plane at a military base before being whisked away to Emory University Hospital.
Fellow infected US aid worker Nancy Writebol is expected to follow shortly.
Ebola has claimed 728 lives in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone this year, killing up to 90% of sufferers.
The plane carrying Dr Brantly was outfitted with a special portable tent designed for transporting patients with highly infectious diseases.
After it touched down at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, the patient was collected by an ambulance which drove him to Emory, 15 miles (24km) away.
At the hospital a person in protective clothing could be seen climbing down from the back of the ambulance and a second person in protective clothing appeared to take his gloved hands and guide him toward a building.
US officials say they are confident the patients can be treated without putting the public in any danger.
The specialised unit was opened 12 years ago to care for federal health workers exposed to some of the world's most dangerous germs.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is unaware of any Ebola patient ever being treated in the US before.

Ebola - Medical Martial Law?
August 2, 2014 Mere suspicion of outbreak could spark panic
Merely the suspicion of a limited Ebola outbreak in the United States would give the green light for federal authorities to seize draconian powers and detain Americans not even infected with the Ebola virus.
FROM DOCTOR H
THEY KNEW AND PLANNED THIS EBOLA RELEASE ALL ALONG!
I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU REGARDING THIS EBOLA THREAT
1. IT IS REAL AND IT WILL BECOME A PANDEMIC!
From what I have read so far, its already pandemic, it just wont appear for another couple weeks or so.
2. WE ARE UTTERLY UNPREPARED IN THE MEDICAL FIELD TO TAKE CARE OF PATIENTS INFECTED WITH EBOLA.
3. HOSPITALS DO NOT HAVE A CLUE ON HOW TO CONFRONT THIS AND THEY ARE NOT RECEIVING ADEQUATE GUIDANCE FROM LOCAL HEALTH AUTHORITIES NOR FROM THE CDC.
The CDC and WHO are not to be trusted at all.
They are claiming ebola is not airborne. However, its borne on a cough or sneeze.
It can remain in the air or on an object people touch for at least 10 minutes. (verified)
You can contract it by shaking hands. Over 100 healthcare workers got it, so its far more contagious than we are being told.
4. MEDICAL SUPPLIES WILL NOT LAST LONG IN THE CONTEXT OF RECENT SHORTAGES OF THESE NATION WIDE.
5. THE NUMBER OF VENTILATORS (RESPIRATORS), TO ASSIST PEOPLE WITH COMPROMISED LUNG FUNCTION ARE CRITICALLY LOW
6. DENGUE FEVER IS ACTIVE IN the USA MAINLY IN THE SOUTHERN STATES.
TRANSMISSION OF DENGUE IS BY THE SAME MOSQUITO TRANSMITS EBOLA VIRUS,
SO NOW WE HAVE AN ADDED AND NOT SURVIVABLE NEW COMBO OF DISEASES THAT I WOULD DARE TO CALL DENGUEBOLA.
Denguebola, cute. Both are hemrhagic (never cud spell that) fevers and virus are known to recombine and mutate.
7. FLU SEASON IS AROUND THE CORNER, SOME VERY AGGRESSIVE.
INFECTED WITH FLUBOLA WILL MAKE THE DIAGNOSIS OF EITHER ONE EVEN MORE DIFFICULT SINCE THEY SHARE VERY SIMILAR SYMPTOMS
You forgot - schools are starting again
8. YOU CAN BET THAT THE PATIENT FROM AFRICA THAT WAS BEING FLOWN IN FROM AFRICA WAS ALREADY IN ATLANTA BY THE TIME THEY TOLD US OF SUCH PLANS.
Aha! THAT explains why the person in the ambulance August 2 walked into the hospital instead of carried on a stretcher. I didnt think he'd survive the flight - maybe he didnt.
Whoever we saw walk into the hospital did NOT have ebola. Yet.
9. THE SOUTHERN BORDER IS A DECOY AND IT IS NOT BEING DONE TO LET ALIENS IN SO THEY CAN VOTE DEMOCRATIC, THERE WILL BE NO ELECTIONS IN THE NEAR FUTURE AND THEY KNOW THIS WELL SO THE TRUE REASONS ARE OTHERS.
Yeah I never thot Obama border jihad was related to votes.
There is so much erection FRAUD that doesnt matter.
I dont like excess hype, but I am just posting everything for YOU to discern.
Frankly I think this report is pretty correct. I was reported IN CAPS.
My comments are in lower case.
Ebola Already in the USA, Across Mexican Border
August 2, 2014 A doctor and border patrol agent alleges that some illegals from Africa have already come across the US-Mexican border almost-certainly infected with Ebola, and the Obama Administration is covering it up by falsely claiming that their cases are only Tuberculosis (TB).
In West Africa, Ebola has already broken out of containment and is spreading into major cities fast. The virus is getting to large, dense, city areas.
In the United States, extreme reaction raise suspicions whether TB is being used as a cover to mask Ebola cases.
The discovery of hundreds of dead bodies strewn across the desert leading across Mexico into the United States and just across our border raises further questions about exactly how they died.
Border Patrol Officers state that West African illegals are coming into the U.S. through Mexico.
100,000 West Africans are being admitted to the United States from the same region as the uncontained outbreak of Ebola.
The U.S. is establishing Ebola Quarantine Centers
The incubation period is 2 to 21 days.
Ebola hemorrhagic fever broke out in West Africa in March, and is totally out of control.
But once the Ebola disease reaches more-modern cities, with mass transit, a catastrophic pandemic could spread quickly around the world.
EBOLA IS A PLANNED EXTINCTION EVENT.
Obama is shipping potentially disease ridden illegals to every major metropolitan area in the United States.
A Phoenix area hospital received a confidential memo detailing the symptoms of Ebola.
A reader told me upon being treated in a Washington DC emergency room, that she saw a sign on the wall listing the symptoms of Ebola.
A doctor with decades of experience confirmed that the early signs of TB and Ebola are nearly identical.
U.S. FDA says 'stands ready' to work with companies developing Ebola drugs
CHICAGO (Reuters) - The worst Ebola outbreak in history is heaping new pressure on U.S. regulators to speed the development of treatments for the deadly virus, which has killed more than 700 people since February.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday said in an emailed statement the agency "stands ready" to work with companies and investigators working with patients "in dire need of treatment."
A senior official within FDA told Reuters the agency would consider proposals for providing treatments under special emergency new drug applications, if the benefits of the treatment outweighed the potential safety risks.
"We take this very, very seriously," the source said.
FDA's statement follow calls by doctors fed up by the lack of progress on Ebola treatments, a market deemed too small to gain much attention by large pharmaceutical companies.
Earlier this month, the agency put a hold on a Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp clinical trial of TKM-Ebola, one of the few Ebola treatments advanced enough to be tested in people.
The hold prompted a North Carolina physician with family members in West Africa to say enough.
"This should be the last Ebola epidemic without a cure," said Dr. Ahmed Tejan-Sie, an internist from Burlington. Tejan-Sie started a petition on Change.org to urge FDA to lift its hold on the drug. It now has 15,000 signatures.
Shares of Tekmira rose sharply on Friday on news that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has intensified, as investors expect the drug trial will be considered again by regulators.
"I'm not advocating that they take it out of the lab and start using it in West Africa. What I'm advocating is that the trials be accelerated," said Tejan-Sie, who spent much of his childhood in Ebola-ravaged Sierra Leone.
The director of the global charity Welcome Trust last month took it a step further, arguing in favor of offering experimental treatments to people at high risk of dying from Ebola, saying the normal drug development process takes too long and should not apply in rapidly spreading outbreaks of diseases.
Giving experimental drugs to people in an epidemic is not without precedent. "Usually when this happens, there are drugs that are further along in development," said Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease expert at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
In the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic, for example, BioCryst Pharmaceuticals' experimental antiviral drug peramivir was made available through emergency use authorization. But that drug had been tested in widely in people by that time.
"With Ebola drugs, there hasn't been much work with them outside of animal models," Adalja said. "That makes it very hard to safely say we should use this in a compassionate use situation, although there is definitely a case to be made in these large outbreaks."
Tekmira's drug has only been tested in a few dozen healthy people. The FDA stopped its study in July because of safety concerns among people taking the highest doses of the drug who experienced problematic immune responses.
The hold means that particular study cannot proceed, but it does not prevent the company from submitting a new study proposal, say in people already infected with Ebola, for whom any safety risks from the treatment would be mitigated by the risk of dying.
In that case, "the benefit-risk ratio changes completely," the FDA source said. "Anything that would shift the risk-benefit to a more favorable outcome could potentially allow the authorization of that study."
What is not clear is whether Tekmira or any developers of possible Ebola treatments would choose to test their drugs in patients infected with Ebola, particularly in the midst of a raging epidemic in which emotions and expectations run high.
Tekmira officials did not return calls or emails on Friday seeking comment. In a July 21 press release, the company said it is "mindful of the need for this important therapeutic in situations such as the ongoing Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
"TKM-Ebola is currently an unapproved agent and the regulatory framework to support its use in Africa has not been established at this time," the company added.
Dr. Thomas Geisbert of the University of Texas Medical Branch has done animal studies on the Tekmira drug and said there are few companies willing to develop Ebola treatments. There is "little financial incentive," given the small market potential for a drug that treats a rare disease afflicting developing countries, he said.
Geisbert said the drug "works great in monkeys in the lab," but that is largely because it is given relatively early in the course of infection.
"What if you start giving it to people who are almost dead and they die, but it's not the drug's fault? Then you blame the drug."
Geisbert said given the widespread mistrust of doctors in West Africa, which has driven dozens of victims to evade treatment, such an event could jeopardize the drug's prospects.
"It's a very delicate situation," he said.
ILLEGALS BRING RISK OF EBOLA
Ebola. Chikungunya. Dengue. Norovirus. Hantavirus. Swine flu. Varicella. Variola. The names sound like something out of a sci-fi movie. Yet, threats to Americans are real, and escalating by the week. The Department of Homeland Security, or DHS, reported on Aug. 1 that serious diseases are spreading at detention centers for Illegal border crossers. Health-care workers and Border Patrol agents, plus their children, have tested positive for tuberculosis (TB), swine flu, chicken pox, lice and scabies. Instead of being quarantined, illegal border crossers are being dispersed rapidly across the U.S., with those of school age being registered in public schools opening soon for all.
The Border Patrol Council reports that 75 percent of illegal border crossers are from countries around the globe, other than Mexico. They are bringing diseases not common to, or eradicated from, the U.S.:
Multiple-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) is spreading in India and Pakistan. Illegals from those countries have been identified coming across our southern borders.
On July 23, China announced it had sealed off the city of Yumen due to a deadly outbreak of bubonic plague. Chinese are so numerous in the current surge of illegals that the federal government has added Mandarin translations to emergency signs across the Texas border regions.
Mexico has serious outbreaks of dengue fever, which can produce debilitating physical and neurological effects, and also has more severe and deadly hemorrhagic forms.
Deadly Ebola hemorrhagic fever is raging out of control in multiple countries in West Africa. Border Patrol agents confirmed that West Africans have been apprehended coming via Mexico into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, with a number of seriously ill individuals whisked away to undisclosed locations for treatment of undisclosed illnesses.
In mid-July seriously ill illegals were flown to Ventura Naval base with high fever, respiratory difficulties, and coughing blood. At least three required ICU admission. No information was released on what illness was diagnosed, but the time course, severity of symptoms, and need for immediate ICU treatment is not typical for tuberculosis and more consistent with Ebola or hemorrhagic forms of dengue fever.
Mount Sinai Hospital New York is performing tests on a patient who had recently traveled to West Africa.
Aug. 4 A male patient with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms came to the hospital's emergency room.
The hospital says the patient has been placed in strict isolation.
Testing for Ebola is done at the CDC, it takes 1-2 days after they receive the samples.
The primary testing is PCR. This is performed on blood that has been treated to kill and live virus. So far CDC has tested samples from around 6 people who had symptoms consistent with Ebola and a travel history to the affected region.
UPDATE Aug. 7
News reports she DID NOT have ebola virus
West Africans have been coming into USA for months
Obama jihad on America via illegals thru Mexico
Doctor quarantines himself at home in Tennessee after treating Ebola patients in Liberia
AUGUST 2, 2014 A retired American doctor who was working with Ebola patients in West Africa returned to the United States this week – and put himself in quarantine.
Dr. Alan Jamison volunteered in the Liberian capital of Monrovia this month as part of an international medical group.
Jamison, 69, said he’s had no symptoms of the deadly disease, but has been in seclusion since Monday, when he returned to his hometown of Morristown, Tennessee.
He plans to be in isolation for 21 days, which is the incubation period for the disease or the time between infection and onset of symptoms.
CDC Getting Dozens of Calls About People Who are ill after Traveling in Africa
Aug 6, 2014 Michael Snyder
CDC has received several dozen calls from hospitals about people who are ill after traveling in Africa. A lot more Ebola testing has been going on around the nation than we have been hearing about in the mainstream media.
A Liberian man just died from Ebola in Morocco, and a man that traveled to Saudi Arabia from Sierra Leone Aug. 3 is being tested for Ebola. The case in Saudi Arabia has health officials over there extremely concerned, showing symptoms of a viral hemorrhagic fever.
CDC received dozens of calls from all over the United States about people that had gotten sick after traveling to Africa. All have been negative for Ebola.
The drug used to treat the two is called ZMapp and boosts the immune system to battle against Ebola. The treatment consists of antibodies from lab animals exposed to the virus.
Saudi Arabia - ebola?
CDC issues highest-level alert for Ebola
August 7, 2014 EBOLA was detected in March 2014 first in Guinea, then in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
The CDC has issued its highest-level alert for a response to the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
Ops Center moved to Level 1 response to given the potential to affect many lives.
Level 1 means that increased staff and resources will be devoted to the outbreak.
WHO met to discuss the crisis in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, and on August 6 said that the death toll had jumped to 932, an increase of 45 fatalities in just four days.
Next week, the WHO will convene a panel of medical ethicists to explore the use of experimental treatment in the latest outbreak in West Africa.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, and behold a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was
Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth,
to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8
I REPEATEDLY SAY - DISCERN!
I am putting everything I see in my forum. That DOES NOT mean I think it has merit! Some is hype.
I DO NOT EVEN KNOW if there is any reality to ANYTHING apart from some in West Africa died of ebola, at least so we are told.
I really dont want to keep up with this in my daily news.
I can think of many - if this, then that - scenarios. Example -
If the U.S. govt looses ebola across America, they know they have a cure - for themselves.
Then they plan martial law, no one out of their house, troops on the streets.
Dont lament no elections, those are rigged anyway.
I have said that to 2 Christians and they said, o well, I have GOD.
God help us. Here are my 3 forum links on EBOLA.
Lockdown: No one goes out
Prepping for an Ebola Lockdown: No one goes out, no one comes in.
Are you prepared to go into lockdown mode if the Ebola virus begins to spread across the country?
Hopefully, fears of a possible Ebola pandemic are exaggerated and being fanned by a government with an agenda and greedy pharmaceutical companies.
With something that displays itself as gruesomely as Ebola, a cover-up cant last long.
If EBOLA continues to spread, government cannot keep it under wraps.
This is NOT going to be easy to contain. The virus is spreading far more rapidly than it has in the past in West Africa, giving some people reason to believe it has mutated into something more easily transmissible.
This reminds me of that scene in the movie Contagion, where the CDC experts have their quiet, closed-door meetings and discuss preventing a panic. Officials seem more intent on keeping it quiet than on stopping the spread of the illness.
The Silence of the facts
There are a lot of facts that are being kept quiet. The government seems really excited about producing an untested vaccine and jabbing us all with it. Because we cant trust the government, you may not have a lot of warning before things get really bad. Consider this your warning. You need to be prepared to go into family lockdown mode for at least 6 weeks.
How do you know when it’s time to go into lockdown?
The time is here - prep today
Avoiding contact with people who have the illness is the only way to prevent getting it.
Isolating yourselves is the best way to stay safe and healthy.
Experiment on West Africans
Pharma pushers want to conduct Ebola medical experiments on entire population of West Africa.
As the death toll from this latest Ebola outbreak edges closer to 1,000, a group of "experts" has come forward with calls to start administering experimental medicines to West Africans.
Peter Piot (co-discovered the Ebola virus) and others urge WHO to allow mass medical experimentation with drugs and vaccines that have never been safety tested.
I consider this an excellent and accurate website.
Ebola outbreak could be much worse than thought
When main news media begin covering it a lot, I smell agenda.
EBOLA: THE NEXT GREAT PANDEMIC?
U.S. Health Authorities Concealing Number of Suspected Ebola Victims From Public
CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta: At least 6 tested for Ebola in NYC
In an apparent attempt to avoid hysteria, U.S. health authorities are withholding details about a number of suspected Ebola victims from the public.
During a segment concerning the admission of a potential Ebola victim at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta revealed that there have been at least six cases at the hospital which prompted doctors to test for Ebola but that the details were not divulged publicly.
“There have been about a half a dozen patients who have had their blood tested because of concern, those particular patients their stories were not made public,” said Gupta, adding, “I’m not sure if that’s because of heightened concern by the hospital or what that means exactly.”
Gupta also appeared to suggest that patients being tested for the Ebola virus were not being kept in isolation when he stated, “This isn’t the kind of thing that they worry about spreading to other patients in the hospital, spreading to people who are walking around the hospital. This is not an airborne virus.”
However, at least in the case of the patient who was made public yesterday, hospital officials said the individual was immediately put into isolation as a precaution.
As we reported yesterday, despite health authorities downplaying the likelihood of Ebola going airborne, studies by Canadian scientists suggest that this is in fact likely, at least to a limited degree.
The Public Health Agency of Canada’s official website also states that “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.”
The CDC has urged airline staff to take steps to prevent the airborne spread of the virus, including giving suspected Ebola victims surgical masks as well as directing staff to “not use compressed air, which might spread infectious material through the air.”
August 8, 2014 Dr. Kent Brantly, the male doctor at Emory infected with Ebola released a statement:
In it he honors the Lord.
August 9, 2014 there was a special meeting in congress on EBOLA, which is a very REAL threat to the U.S.A. EBOLA outbreak is still growing, not diminishing. (radio)
The spread of Ebola to the USA is inevitable, due to international air travel, said Tom Frieden, the head of the CDC in a House Subcommittee hearing. http://www.naturalnews.com/046378_CDC_Ebola_pandemic_survival_tips.html
Ebola spread to USA inevitable
The spread of Ebola to the USA is inevitable, said Tom Frieden, the head of the CDC in a House Subcommittee hearing.
EBOLA is uncontained and out of control in West Africa, the international response to the disease has been a failure.
America is nowhere near prepared for an Ebola outbreak, not the people, not the hospitals, not the grocery stores and certainly not the government.
Outbreak USA will immediately turn to panic.
Even a small, local Ebola outbreak would result in a mandatory lock down of people in their own homes. The government's phrase for this is "shelter in place," and it was invoked at gunpoint during the Boston Marathon bombings.
People are completely on their own, with other residents utterly unwilling to help them.
What You Need to Do to Survive Ebola BEFORE the Panic Starts.
The Ebola virus is spreading and no one in any position of authority is releasing information to the public about how serious of a contagion this is.
In Nigeria things are much worse there than are being reported.
WHO reports Aug. 6 an explosion in confirmed cases over the last 48 hours.
30 cases of EBOLA in the U.S.A.
30 cases of Ebola in the United States as of August 8, 2014.
I dont know which states but those bordering Mexico would be my first guess - Calif, Az, Tex, NM
I have NO idea if this is true, but I wont be surprised.
Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol
August 16, 2014 ATLANTA USA Emory Ebola patients facing long recovery, but they're now immune
The news keeps getting better about Dr. Kent Brantly, one of the Ebola patients being treated at Emory University Hospital.
He and Nancy Writebol contracted Ebola while doing missionary work in Liberia.
They're going to be able to leave Emory University Hospital's isolation units.
Then they will likely need months to get back to full health.
But from now on, they won't be able to infect anyone else with Ebola, and no one will be able to infect them with Ebola, they're immune. They can't get Ebola again.
Dr Brantly got Zmapp nd so did Nancy.
Zmapp is a treatment, NOT a vaccine and did NOT help the Spanish priest.

Dr. Kent Brantly Says God Saved My Life
Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly have been cured of the Ebola virus and released from Emory Hospital in Atlanta.
Dr. Kent Brantly, who contracted the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa will be released from Atlanta's Emory University Hospital on Thursday.
His blood tests have come back negative for the virus.
The hospital will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. ET, where Brantly will give a statement before leaving the hospital.
Emory will also have information on fellow missionary Nancy Writebol. Her husband recently said that she is regaining strength.
Well, like said in another thread, maybe this whole Ferguson, MO riots was designed to do just that - distract away over ebola and the southern border engineered crisis.
EBOLA in USA MAP
August 23, 2014 - 30 states request help with possible Ebola cases
30 states have sought the Center for Disease Control’s help identifying potential cases of Ebola. The map above is based on a list of those states provided to Breitbart News Thursday by the CDC. The list shows (in bright red) all the states which have asked for the CDC’s help with potential Ebola cases since July 27th. When contacted for consultation, the CDC examines the patient’s symptoms and travel history to decide whether or not a blood test is needed. In most cases, the CDC is able to rule out Ebola without the need for a blood test. ABC News reported Wednesday that the CDC was contacted 68 times since the end of last month. In 58 of those cases Ebola was ruled out. In the ten remaining cases CDC ordered a blood test. Seven of those tests have already returned negative, and three are still outstanding. The CDC did not have up-to-date information on the location of the 10 patients who have received Ebola tests thus far, but reports indicate at least one patient was tested in New York, California, New Mexico, Maryland, and Ohio. Patients in California and New Mexico are currently awaiting test results. Two patients who were transported to America after contracting Ebola in West Africa were released from a hospital in Atlanta this week. Both recovered after treatment which included an experimental drug called ZMapp. The CDC pronounced both patients cured, issuing a statement saying, “They no longer have Ebola virus in their blood and therefore pose no risk to household contacts or the public.” – Briebart
Yes, I'll only believe it when I see it. I too have my doubts.
3,000 Ebola Martyrs in America
August 2014 Isis is in all US states. They claim 3,000 Ebola Martyrs are ready to strike.
My guess is they already struck. Ebola does not manifest for 21 days.
Perfectly evil timing for the start of school.
ISIS operating out of the Saudi Arabia Embassy located in Washington D.C.
Isis has total freedom of movement around D.C. with no US intelligence service monitoring of them and have brazenly posted photos of their flag pinned to the White House fence.
WHY did Barak Hussein Obama bow before the Saudi Arabia king, and why did Saudi give Obama a gold medal?
3,000 Sunni Muslilms have become Ebola Martyrs willing to die to infect as many Americans as they can before October. Of course elections in November dont enter into this. I smell US govt false flag for martial law and Obama never leaves office.
Ebola virus apocalypse
No one has been able to explain the rapid and unprecedented spread of Ebola virus apocalypse in West Africa.
Isis and Boko Haram have formed an Islamic alliance from hell.
Sorcha is a group of people who mess article up with weeds.
However the pattern is well within the line of reason if you understand Islam.
Sorcha Faal garden weeded by me!
Ebola vaccine trials USA
August 28, 2014 A human study of an Ebola vaccine will begin in September.
Three labs, in Texas, Maryland and North Carolina, were set up in 2012 by HHS to respond to pandemics or chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threats.
Ebola patient in Omaha Nebraska
Sept 5, 2014 Ebola patient flown to Omaha.
Nebraska Medical Center said they will be treating an American Ebola patient in Omaha, SIM Dr. Richard Sacra, 51, of Massachusetts. He contracted ebola in Africa.
American SIM doctor infected with Ebola heading to Omaha Nebraska
US for treatment
The latest American to be infected with Ebola while working as a missionary doctor in Africa will be flown in
to the Nebraska Medical Center in order to receive treatment.
Missionary doctor Rick Sacra was flown to Omaha, Nebraska hospital with a Biocontainment Patient Care Unit for treatment.
Sacra was not working with Ebola patients in Liberia.
SO HOW DID HE GET EBOLA!?
In August, both Nancy Writebol who also worked for SIM, and Kent Brantley were flown to USA
and treated with an experimental drug called ZMapp. Both recovered and were discharged.
US Doctor Infected With Ebola Arrives in Nebraska
Sep 5, 2014, 8:00 AM OMAHA, Neb.
Local media reported shortly after 6 a.m. that a plane carrying the EBOLA patient landed at Offutt Air Force Base, south of Omaha. He arrived at the hospital in an ambulance about 40 minutes later.
Dr. Phil Smith, medical director of the Omaha unit, said a team of 35 doctors, nurses and other medical staffers will provide Richard Sacra with basic care.
The team is discussing experimental treatments, including using blood serum from a patient who has recovered from Ebola.
why send a man whose home is near GA to Neb? My answer is - to spread ebola from the center of the USA
So far 6 patients received ZMapp, 3 recovered and 3 died.
With this EBOLA, half who get sick recover. YOU figure out how good Zmapp is.
SIM was Samaritans Purse. Now its part of govt, international Christian aid organization.
Ebola Could Reach the U.S. By the End of This Month
There is an 18 percent chance that a case of the Ebola virus will reach the United States by the end of September, according to a study published on Tuesday in PLOS Currents: Outbreaks.
Ebola isn't just killing people. It's ravaging West Africa's economy. The Week (RSS)
Despite restrictions reducing travel in and out of the infected countries by 80 percent, the study, which analyzes global flight patterns, suggests that a case of Ebola in the U.S. is becoming increasingly harder to avoid. It also lists the chance of the virus reaching the United Kingdom between 25 and 28 percent.
The analysis also warns that if the current West African outbreak is not contained the likelihood of the virus reaching Europe and the U.S. will "increase consistently."
The study lists just a five percent chance of Ebola occurring in the U.S. today, suggesting that the disease is far from contained to countries in West Africa. According to numbers obtained by the World Health Organization, there have been an estimated 3,685 cases and 1,841 deaths from the virus since the outbreak began.
Although two Americans — Dr. Kent Brantley and Nancy Writebol — have been treated for Ebola in the U.S., both of them contracted the disease while working in Liberia. Doctors suggested that better medical care contributed to their eventual recovery.
A third infected American working in Liberia, Dr. Richard A. Sacra, is on his way to the U.S. for treatment.
The Satanic Obama mafia are counting on ebola breaking out in the USA soon.
Their hideous vaccine plot began Sept 1, 2014.
They sent 2 active EBOLA patients to Atlanta Georgia, stopping off in Maine to - refuel - and they sent one to Nebraska.
EBOLA incubation period about 21 days - bringing us to the end of Sept.
Zmapp may be worthless.
Omaha Ebola patient in stable condition
OMAHA, Nebraska - A doctor who became infected with Ebola while working in Liberia is sick but in stable condition at the Nebraska Medical Center.
Sacra was wheeled on a gurney off the plane at Offutt Air Force Base, transferred to an ambulance and then wheeled into the hospital.
Sacra was conscious Friday and was able to communicate with medical staff.
Sacra delivered babies in Liberia, and was not involved in the treatment of Ebola patients, so it's unclear how he became infected with the virus.
4th American with Ebola to be flown to US
Sept 9, 2014 A fourth American who contracted Ebola in West Africa flown to Atlanta Georgia USA.
A WHO doctor who worked in an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone has tested positive for the disease. He was in stable condition in Freetown and evacuated to USA.
Sacra is getting a different experimental drug, not Zmapp.
Sacra went to Omaha instead of Atlanta because federal officials asked the medical center to treat him in order to prepare other isolation units to take more Ebola patients if needed.
A patient being treated in Nebraska appeared to be better tolerating his experimental treatments Monday, but his recovery remains uncertain. The family of Rick Sacra said he was able to eat breakfast Monday.
Ebola evacuations to US greater than previously known
Transports have included patients exposed to virus, air ambulance operator says
An undisclosed number of people who’ve been exposed to the Ebola virus — not just the four patients publicly identified with diagnosed cases — have been evacuated to the U.S. by an air ambulance company contracted by the State Department.
“We moved a lot of other people who had an exposure event,” said Dent Thompson, vice president of Phoenix Air Group. “Many times these people are just fine, they just had an exposure. But you have to treat it as though the disease is present.”
How many exposed patients have been flown from West Africa to the U.S.? Thompson said medical privacy laws and his company’s contract with the State Department prevent him from revealing the figure.
“I’m not avoiding it,” Thompson told Yahoo News. “I’m just not allowed to talk about it.”
Five weeks ago, medical missionary Dr. Kent Brantly became the first Ebola patient to be treated in the U.S. He and fellow missionary Nancy Writebol were nursed back to health in a special isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta and later released. Dr. Rick Sacra and an unidentified doctor who arrived on Tuesday are currently being treated in the U.S.
The State Department confirmed the four known Ebola patient transports but couldn’t provide details on any exposure evacuations to the United States. Phoenix Air, they said, is under contract because of its expertise.
An unnamed State Department official said “every precaution is taken to move the patient safely and securely, to provide critical care en route, and to maintain strict isolation upon arrival in the United States.”
Thompson said Phoenix Air has flown 10 Ebola-related missions in the past six weeks.
“Not everything we do is [related to] a sick person,” he said, adding that the company has also flown supplies. “We do basically whatever needs to be done.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is operating an around-the-clock Ebola emergency operations center, did not immediately respond to an email seeking information about the exposure patient transports.
On Monday, President Barack Obama, who has called the outbreak a U.S. national security priority, pledged more U.S. assistance to West Africa. The White House recently requested $30 million more from Congress to help the CDC’s efforts with the crisis.
With multiple government and aid organizations trying to tackle the unprecedented epidemic, Thompson predicts his team will be flying more precautionary patients back to the U.S.
“There will be a certain number of people who, through no fault of their own, will have an exposure event, and they are immediately identified and immediately extracted,” he said.
Phoenix Air’s modified Gulfstream III jets are “literally intensive care units with wings,” Thompson said. He said even evacuees without a confirmed Ebola diagnosis are placed in an isolation chamber for the 12- to 14-hour flight from West Africa to the U.S.
“You can never, ever let your safety guards down,” he said.
The Georgia-based air transport company got involved in the latest Ebola crisis when the Christian humanitarian group Samaritan’s Purse recruited it to evacuate Brantly and Writebol. The State Department was involved in the logistics, but the trips were funded by Samaritan’s Purse.
Since then, Thompson said, Phoenix Air has solely been under contract with the State Department.
“It became evident that we could no longer treat any of these flights as a private or commercial flight,” said Thompson, declining to divulge the specifics of the government contract.
Brantly, Writebol and the latest patient have been treated at Emory University in Atlanta. Last week, Sacra was flown to the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Those hospitals, plus the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, and St. Patrick’s Hospital in Missoula, Montana, have specially-equipped biocontainment units built in collaboration with the CDC. However, the CDC has said any U.S. hospital following infection control recommendations and isolating a patient in a private room is capable of safely managing an infected patient.
Thompson declined to say where patients who have just been exposed to Ebola have been flown to in the U.S.
“They all go to a hospital and they monitor them,” he said. “If they do develop it, then they treat them. And, fingers crossed, they’re going to walk out the way Brantly and Nancy Writebol walked out.”
The Phoenix is the symbol of the NWO.
Phoenix Air is under contract to fly EBOLA patients from Africa to USA.
When you see phoenix, that is a clue. When several clues begin to show up, its an NWO operation.
Dr. Kent Brantly, Nancy Writebol, and an unidentified doctor flown to Emory in Atlanta GA, and Dr. Rick Sacra flown to Nebraska are the 4 known Ebola patients flown to the USA.
The Writebols live in the Dallas Texas area.
I have been told Montana is a treatment center.
Montana-Idaho-Wyoming are where many militia are. PRAY FOR THEM!
Ebola survivor shares blood
Sept 12, 2014 Donated blood from Dr. Kent Brantly, an American Ebola patient who recovered has been used to treat another patient.
Brantly convalescent serum (similar to blood plasma) has been donated to treat American Rick Sacra in Nebraska. Sacra received two transfusions.
Evidence for whether blood from survivors can help patients is mixed.
I wouldnt think he'd be recovered enuf yet to spare blood.
Israeli Ebola drug
Sept 13, 2014 Israeli company offers to mass-produce US-patented Ebola drug ZMapp.
Protalix claims they have the technology to manufacture antibodies for ZMapp.
Protalix Ebola treatment similar to ZMapp.
Protalix in Israel is one of the only places in the world with the technology to mass produce a medicine like ZMapp, which uses antibodies from tobacco plants. Protalix can genetically engineer tobacco, has production capacity that exceeds its needs, and offered to produce large amounts of the Ebola drug for Mapp Biopharmaceutical in a relatively short time.
Protalix technology produces biological drugs in plant cells.
Protalix more efficiently uses just the plant cells, rather than using the entire tobacco plant, which is how ZMapp is produced. Protalix would have to receive the DNA sequence of the antibody, which is a proprietary asset. Then insert it into plant cells and then purify the antibody protein that would be made in these cells.
20% chance Ebola will spread to US within 2 weeks
Sept 13, 2014 A top Ebola researcher warns there is a 20 percent chance that Ebola virus will begin spreading within the U.S. in the next two weeks. The US govt flying ebola patients from Africa to US states ensured this. The NWO planned ebola in USA in October, and they are on target.
EBOLA information, spreading globally nation to nation
The CDC Admits the USA Is On the Verge of a Major Ebola Outbreak
In late July and early August, six weeks ago, I warned that we at the point of losing any hope of containing the Ebola virus and I was called a “fear-monger and I was spreading “fear-porn”. Many of my colleagues (e.g. Sheila Zilinski) were accused of the same. However, the worm has turned and the truthful media has a new partner in fear-mongering and it is the CDC.
The U.S. Lost the War Against Ebola in July of 2014
On July 30, 2014, I reported that “Patient Zero, Patrick Sawyer, had a layover in Ghana then changed planes in Togo and flew to an international travel hub of Lagos, located in Nigeria. Nigeria is also the site of an Ebola outbreak. “The dad-of-three died five days after arriving in the city”. His sister, with whom Sawyer had contact, died of Ebola. He should never have been allowed to board any plane.
In the same article I noted that ” a desperate search is on to find the hundreds of passengers who flew on the same jets as Sawyer. A total of 59 passengers and crew are estimated to have come into contact with Sawyer and effort is being made to track each individual down. There is an inherent problem with this “track down”. Sawyer was traveling two “commuter airports”, in which the exposed population was connecting to other flights; at this point, the spread of the virus would quickly expand beyond any possibility of containment because in less than a half a day, nearly a half a million people would be potentially exposed. Within a matter of a couple of hours, Sawyer’s infected fellow travelers would each have made contact with 200 other passengers and crew. Hours later, these flights would land and these people would have gone home to the friends, families and coworkers across several continents”. This was when the world, and in particular, President Obama had a fighting chance to contain Ebola and all parties failed miserably!
“Mia Culpa” CDC: Within the Past 24 Hours, the CDC Joined the Fear Mongering Business
After I published my July 30th report, United States health officials countered several similar claims by saying that they are not worried because Ebola is only transmitted through exposure to bodily fluids. In other words, the CDC was telling the truthful media to stop “spreading hysteria”. Now it is clear that the CDC is singing a different tune.
Fourteen hours before the publishing of this present article, the CDC has drawn up and released a six-page action plan on how to tackle Ebola, warning US hospitals: “now is the time to prepare“. This stern warning comes a week after the organization warned that the disease is ‘out of control’, as it has now been revealed that a CDC worker has contracted the illness. At the urging of the CDC and the U.S. government, world leaders have pledged to invest millions in health care in Liberia, where the disease is expected to rage for another 18 months at least. How far can Ebola spread in 18 months? Read on!
The CDC issued six-page Ebola “checklist”, which is designed to help healthcare workers quickly diagnose patients who may be infected, also is designed to show health care workers how to take action to protect themselves from exposure by dawning certain protective gear and doing so in a certain manner…
Nothing Is Being Done To Contain the Virus
An analysis published this week noted that over 6,000 travelers fly from Nigeria to the U.S. every week, one of the countries hardest hit by the deadly Ebola outbreak which can claim the lives of 90% of infected people. Thousands more of these potentially Ebola-infected persons are being allowed to fly from Nigeria to the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and China, among other countries. And would you care to guess where travelers from the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and China frequently fly to? That answer would be the United States. With a 21 day incubation period, and no mandated screenings procedures for people traveling from infected countries, it’s really not a matter of if, but when the virus reaches the United States. This is a recipe for disaster.
The most disturbing news comes from my most trusted confidential military source. My source is the same that told me an attempted rescue of Ambassador Stevens that was thwarted by the Obama administration. This was a fact that did not surface in other venues for months. As a prelude, if there is one thing that could send military leaders over the edge and perhaps mutiny, this is it.
There is a one-two punch coming as it relates to the unfolding Ebola crisis. First, the military has been told to take orders from the Department of Homeland Security with regard to establishing revised quarantine procedures. Part of these plans include putting local police under the jurisdictional command of the military in what we could call a de facto military draft for police officers. In other words, your local police chief and sheriff will taking orders from the Pentagon when it comes to the quarantining and detention of areas and people related to an Ebola outbreak. Perhaps this is the real reason behind Program 1033 which has effectively militarized the police.
This development will effectively convert local law enforcement into a martial law operation unit. Further, this would constitute the means from which martial law can be brought in through the “back-door” and the military will be an unwitting accomplice. The police and military will not be enforcing martial law, they will be told they are protecting public safety.
The second “punch” centers around the Ebola vaccine and the developments, as well as the future plans related to the roll-out of the vaccine could prove devastating to the people of this country. This will be the topic of next part in this series.
When it rains, it pours...
Dick Durbin: Amnesty Bill Will Help Contain Ebola
On Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that a comprehensive amnesty bill would have helped America contain the Ebola epidemic in Africa.
Durbin, a member of the Senate's Gang of Eight that wrote the immigration reform bill, said during a Senate hearing on Ebola that the Senate's amnesty bill would have even allowed doctors in the United States to travel to Africa to combat Ebola "without jeopardizing their immigration status."
“We included in the immigration reform bill, which passed the United States Senate, a provision which provided, in one respect, if you are medically trained in Africa and promise to serve in Africa for a period of time before going anywhere else, we would honor that and respect that and not allow people to be recruited into the United States if they still had an obligation to their country,” Durbin said, according to the Washington Times. “And secondly, that doctors in the United States would be able to serve in these crisis situations overseas without jeopardizing their immigration status."
Ebola on Phoenix ship bound for New Orleans
Sept 18, 2014 Crew on a freighter inbound to New Orleans thought to have ebola. CDC says it malaria but the CDC has been lying to us.
First responders who took those individuals to the hospital wore protective garb as a precaution.
The ship remained at anchor in the Mississippi River near Belle Chasse. It was expected to continue its voyage to New Orleans.
Another ill crew member disembarked in the Bahamas two days ago where he died.
Phoenix is a CLUE!

Doctors: 'Irresponsible' to send troops to 'combat' Ebola
Call for quarantine, banning flights to U.S. from nations with virus outbreaks
A real-life horror story is playing out in Africa as Ebola spreads, and President Obama’s decision to send 3,000 troops to Liberia to combat the virus could very well put Americans at risk of contracting the deadly illness at home, some health experts say.
According to the World Health Organization, at least 4,985 people have contracted Ebola and at least 2,461 have died. Several doctors have fallen ill with Ebola, and two of them have died. New reports indicate a Doctors Without Borders staff member has contracted the virus in Liberia and will be evacuated to France for treatment.
“You can see that these doctors, who are highly trained people, got themselves infected,” said Dr. Lee Hieb, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. “So sending troops into an area, if they’re dealing one-on-one with a patient, they’re not going to be able to protect themselves very well. It’s not easy to [prevent transmission], because you get tired and you get careless and you make some simple mistakes. All it takes is one virus particle.”
Dr. Hieb said quarantine measures should be taken to control the outbreak and prevent Ebola from coming to America.
“You don’t get Ebola from Europe,” she told WND. “You get Ebola from Africa. And it’s a really simple formula: Don’t let people fly to America if they’ve been to areas where there’s an outbreak. When there’s an outbreak, stop air [traffic] flow.”
Hieb added, “If they’re going to use the troops to do population control, which is one of the ways you contain it, basically you just don’t let anybody out. You’d make a ring around where it is, and you’d quarantine the area.”
With quarantines in places where the outbreaks are occurring, even if a person infected with Ebola were to try to board a plane to the U.S., it would be far more difficult for them to make the journey, she explained.
“Could somebody sneak through by going to Pakistan or some place?” she asked. “Yes, potentially. Ebola comes on so rapidly, you would know it. They wouldn’t make it. We should not allow flights from nations that are having Ebola outbreaks.”
Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, has warned that the U.S. must “treat Ebola as a wake-up call.”
“What African troops are doing is shooting people who cross borders or violate quarantine,” Orient told WND, reacting to news of the U.S. troop deployment. “Is that what we plan to support?”
She added, “Africans are already very suspicious of us. How will they react to an army setting up hospitals?”
Orient called the planned U.S. deployment a “dubious mission,” warning that the nightmarish scenario could bring Ebola to America.
“There is definitely a risk,” she said. “It seems irresponsible to send more people there when the ones already there are having trouble leaving. Probably anyone who has been exposed should be quarantined for 25 days since the last exposure.”
Orient echoed the concerns of Elaine Donelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, who told WND, “I’m just appalled. Judging from this, the United States seems to have a very confused vision of what ‘national security’ means.”
“But whether 3,000 American troops should be sent into that area of the world to deal with that problem, I do not see the justification,” Donelly said. “Surely there are alternatives in the international health-care networks.”
WND also reported when retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin charged that sending American troops to combat Ebola in Liberia is “an absolute misuse of the U.S. military.”
Donnelly emphasized it’s “not the purpose of our military.”
“I am very disappointed to see this announcement,” she said.
Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger appointed Donnelly to the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services for a three-year term from 1984 through 1986. Then, in 1992, President George H. W. Bush appointed her to the Presidential Commission on the Assignment of Women in the Armed Forces.
Donnelly explained to WND her concern that the U.S. military is not designed to fight health wars.
“Our military people will show compassion in Liberia, as they always do, and they will do everything asked of them,” she said.
“Still, health wars are unhealthy for soldiers and all living things. Like oxymoronic ‘peace wars,’ such as the incursion into Bosnia, deployments such as this put our troops in causes having little impact on America’s national security,” she said.
American military families will be put at greater risk, Donnelly warned.
“Here we have a ‘health war’ that could cost our troops’ health.”
Did you realize the United States government owns the patent on Ebola?
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) After we recently broke the news about the U.S. government's patent on the human Ebola virus, many of our readers asked for more information explaining how this could possibly be the case. Well, this article will break down the actual patent for so-called "EboBun," which shortly after being identified back in 2007 was deposited with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and claimed by the U.S. government as its own "invention."
If you don't believe it, take a look for yourself:
Here, you will see the actual patent for human Ebola virus as cataloged by Google and stamped with the official publication number "CA 2741523 A1." You will also notice that the patent was filed by six individuals representing the U.S. government, including the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the CDC.
"The invention provides the isolated human Ebola (hEbola) viruses denoted as Bundibugyo (EboBun) deposited with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention... on November 26, 2007 and accorded an accession number 200706291," reads the official Deposit Statement for the virus.
"Samples of the stated Deposit Accession No. 200706291 will be made available to approved facilities for thirty years from the date of deposit, and for the lifetime of the patent issuing from, or claiming priority to this application."
'Invented' Ebola virus discovered during prior Ugandan outbreak
For those who may be wondering if this is an open admission by the U.S. government that it actually created the human Ebola virus on purpose, the background section of the patent goes on to explain that it was technically just discovered during an outbreak in Uganda. In late November 2007, just before the virus was deposited with the CDC, multiple cases of hemorrhagic fever were discovered in the Bundibugyo District of Western Uganda that were quickly identified as Ebola.
Those who discovered the virus dubbed it "Ebola Bundibugyo virus," or "EboBun" for short, and quickly claimed it as their own intellectual property by bringing it back to the States and filing it with the CDC. And now, any virus that even resembles this particular strain is regarded as the private property of the U.S. government.
Similar Ebola viruses that are even 70 percent similar are also owned by US government
In the same patent filing, the U.S. government added a special claim for other Ebola viruses with similarities to EboBun, pronouncing ownership over them as well. Any nucleotide sequence with at least a 70 percent identity match, according to the claim, is also regarded as the property of the U.S. government.
What this suggests is that the current strain circulating throughout West Africa may also be a government strain, for which government-owned vaccines are already in the pipeline. From disease to treatment, in other words, the U.S. government holds exclusive ownership over this deadly virus, and fully intends to profit from the pain and suffering of thousands, and potentially millions.
None of this is conspiracy theory or speculation, either -- it is factual knowledge freely available for anyone willing to face the facts. Read the patent for yourself and decide whether or not these Ebola outbreaks are legitimate or just a government propaganda campaign to profit from disease and vaccines.
CDC warns universities to prepare for Ebola pandemic
Sunday, September 21, 2014 by: L.J. Devon, Staff Writer
(NaturalNews) American colleges and universities are now on high alert and are being instructed to take extra precautions against the potential spread of incoming Ebola. Students traveling abroad to Ebola-stricken countries like Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria or Sierra Leone run the risk of bringing the virus back to US campuses. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is now urging all US colleges to implement additional safety measures to prevent accidental spread of Ebola.
CDC officials are encouraging university staff members to ask returning students important questions about possible symptoms, including suspicious fever, body aches, headaches, diarrhea, unexplained bleeding and bruising. Any student returning from an Ebola-stricken country within the past 21 days is to be closely monitored upon returning to the US. (Ebola has a maximum incubation period of 21 days before symptoms appear.)
The CDC is even instructing students to monitor their temperature twice daily for a 21-day period, regardless of their symptoms. The CDC is essentially warning universities to prepare for a potential Ebola pandemic.
"If a student, faculty, or staff member has had a high- or low-risk exposure, state or local public health authorities should be notified, and school officials should consult with public health authorities for guidance about how that person should be monitored," the CDC advises.
The CDC instructs any student with a fever of 101.5°F or higher to seek immediate medical care, while warning the hospital and doctors beforehand for special safety preparations. Students are also advised not to take public transportation within a 21-day period.
The countries most affected by Ebola outbreaks, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, send nearly 400 students each year to American colleges and universities. Nigeria sends an additional 7,000 students yearly.
Is America's medical system better equipped to handle Ebola outbreak?
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Robert Winfield, the University of Michigan's Chief Health Officer, stated, "We're walking a line of trying to be vigilant and have a safe environment, without raising the kind of alarm that would unnecessarily escalate the stigma and isolation of people." So far, no cases of Ebola have been isolated.
Epidemiology Professor Eden Wells, associate director of the University's Preventive Medicine Residency Program, commented, "Yes, we probably will have someone arrive on a plane (with Ebola). But we have a public health system in place that we could immediately isolate the patient and quarantine anyone who was exposed, and that's been quite effective. So we would not see the spread or the problems that we've seen in this area."
Professor Wells believes that US officials will use quarantine to prevent outbreaks as large as the ones seen in West Africa, where over 2,000 people have died.
"There's a lot of fear. When the locals are becoming ill, they are returning to their villages and places they feel comfortable. Unfortunately, that can lead to spread." Wells believes that during an outbreak it's better to register for treatment and not be scared of medical quarantine. He points out that the four cases of Ebola treated in the US have been successful, allowing two patients to return to their normal lives.
America might be more susceptible to outbreak than experts think
If an outbreak were to spread from a US university, a peaceful quarantine could turn into a state of martial law. Entire campuses could be locked down like what's going on in villages in Liberia. Pictures show armed guards keeping people from accessing nearby airports.
In the US, the National Guard may be called in to enforce boundaries and restrict travel, as the federal government takes over, dispersing hazmat suits that they recently obtained by the hundreds of thousands.
At this point, it may be even more dangerous to be registered for medical treatment. Americans would quickly respond in fear and panic. Non-infected and suspected persons could be misdiagnosed and thrown into quarantine zones where they then get the virus from those who are infected. Along with that, hospitals in America are already brimming with patients. If an outbreak started like it did in West Africa, America wouldn't be any better equipped to face the problem. If anything, the immune-system-suppressed general population in the US, living on processed and fast foods, would be more susceptible to the wrath of a viral pandemic.
US doctor exposed to Ebola virus admitted to NIH
9/28/14 Frederick, Maryland — An American doctor who was exposed to the Ebola virus while volunteering in Sierra Leone was admitted Sunday to a hospital at the National Institutes of Health near the nation's capital.
The patient, who was not identified, arrived at NIH's Clinical Center about 4 p.m., NIH said in a statement on its website.
NIH said that out of "an abundance of caution," the physician was admitted to a special isolation unit. NIH infectious disease chief Dr. Anthony Fauci wouldn't discuss details about the patient but said that in general, an exposure to Ebola doesn't necessarily mean someone will become sick.
"When someone is exposed, you want to put them into the best possible situation so if something happens you can take care of them," Fauci said.
"NIH is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our patients, NIH staff and the public," the agency said in a statement.
Four other American aid workers who were sickened by Ebola while volunteering in the West African outbreak have been treated at hospitals in Georgia and Nebraska. One remains hospitalized while the others have recovered.
An Associated Press photographer saw a person dressed in a white protective suit get off a plane and walk to a waiting ambulance at the Frederick Municipal Airport in Maryland about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
The plane's tail number matched that of the aircraft that has been used previously to transport other Ebola patients to the United States from overseas.
NIH spokesman John Burklow confirmed that the plane carrying the patient landed at Frederick.
Texas hospital puts possible Ebola patient in isolation
(Reuters) - A Texas hospital said on Monday it has admitted a patient into "strict isolation" to be evaluated for possible infection with the Ebola virus, as health officials battle an epidemic in West Africa that has already killed thousands of people.
In a brief statement, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas cited the unnamed patient's symptoms and recent travel history as reasons for the isolation.
The 898-bed acute-care hospital "is following all federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors," it said.
The hospital said the CDC anticipated preliminary results of tests on the patient to be ready on Tuesday.
U.S. lawmakers this month called for a government-funded "war" to contain the epidemic before it threatens more nations, building on an American pledge to send 3,000 military engineers and medical personnel to combat the virus.
On Saturday, the U.S. National Institutes of Health said it would admit to one of its special observation wards in Bethesda, Maryland, an American physician exposed to the Ebola virus while volunteering in Sierra Leone.
Emory University Hospital in Atlanta this month admitted an American doctor infected with the virus for treatment in the same isolation unit where U.S. missionaries Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly were treated before being discharged in August.

WE CAN NOT BELIEVE AUTHORITIES!
Several patients have been flown to other countries for treatment.
Mid-September Obama sent the U.S. military to West Africa, an Evil move.
MOST troubling of all, they still refuse to admit the WA Ebola is AIRBORN.
Because CDC and WHO are LYING about how EBOLA is spread, they are probably also LYING how long they are contagious after declared recovered. It is known once recovered, they remain contagious at least 7 weeks. Just because their body overcame the virus doesnt mean the virus is dead. WE CAN NOT BELIEVE AUTHORITIES.
WE CAN NOT BELIEVE AUTHORITIES.
Just because they say a monitored possible Ebola tested negative
DOES NOT mean that is true.
CDC issues Ebola guidelines for U.S. funeral homes
Posted: Sep 29, 2014 3:36 PM PST
ROSWELL, GA (CBS46) -
CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?
The three-page list of recommendations include instructing funeral workers to wear protective equipment when dealing with the remains since Ebola can be transmitted in postmortem care. It also instructs to avoid autopsies and embalming.
On Tuesday, the CDC confirmed the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States, a patient in Texas.
Alysia English is Executive Director of the Georgia Funeral Directors Association, the oldest and largest funeral association in Georgia.
Georgia is comprised of 700 funeral homes and 2,000 funeral directors.
CBS46 asked English if Georgians should be alarmed by these guidelines.
"Absolutely not. In fact, if they weren't hearing about it, they should be a whole lot more concerned," said English.
She said Georgia has one of the country's most thorough public health plans. That includes detailed planning for all hazards such as floods and the flu.
"If you were in the middle of a flood or gas leak, that's not the time to figure out how to turn it off. You want to know all of that in advance. This is no different," said English.
President Barack Obama addressed the Ebola crisis in a speech he delivered during a visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16.
Three Americans have been treated for Ebola in Atlanta after evacuation from Africa. The most recent patient arrived in Atlanta on Sept. 9.
The two original American patients treated in Atlanta, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, were eventually discharged.

Movies refer to the one starting the outbreak as patient 0, so CDC expects EBOLA to be epidemic in USA. CDC continued to LIE and claim its not AIRBORN, after its proven airborn and highly contagious.
Ebola in America
October 1, 2014 They’ve been lying to you about this virus.
They’re doing it on purpose.
It takes an amazingly small amount of the Ebola virus to infect you.
Ebola has arrived in USA, no surprise. But, there are a few things that you might not be aware of.
Ebola is MORE contagious in colder climates, in the winter - than in areas where the outbreak occurred. It is AT LEAST as contagious as Influenza A.
Texas misdiagnosis exposed MANY to EBOLA.
October 1, 2014 Dallas Ebola patient originally sent home with antibiotics. Misdiagnosis exposed MANY others to EBOLA.
A Dallas hospital gave a man antibiotics and sent him home, only to be admitted 2 days later.
Dallas Ebola patient was initially dismissed with prescription for antibiotics,
even after telling hospital he had just arrived from Liberia.
I CAUTION EVERYONE NOT TO BELIEVE CDC!
My belief is that
ANYONE on the PLANE from Liberia to USA Sept 19-20 NEEDS TO WATCH FOR SYMPTOMS OF EBOLA!
Who else did he infect?
October 1, 2014 dailymail.co.uk
The hunt is on for people who came into contact with Ebola victim in Dallas, Texas.
A male patient is in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas after becoming the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. He flew from Liberia to Texas on September 19 and arrived in the U.S. on September 20.
Health authorities were tracking down family and friends who may have had close contact with him.
Hospital misdiagnosed him and he had a week to spread Ebola in Texas to everyone, including the ambulance which finally bore him to hospital - and all who have ridden that vehicle since.
My belief is that
ANYONE on the PLANE from Liberia to USA Sept 19-20 NEEDS TO WATCH FOR SYMPTOMS OF EBOLA!
LOOK - the CDC is lying to us about everything. They WANT an epidemic. UN Agenda 21.
Top ten things you need to do NOW to protect yourself
Now that Ebola "patient zero" has been confirmed in the United States, it's clear that Ebola is spreading in USA.

And So It Begins… 2nd Potential Ebola Patient Being Monitored in Dallas
Whether or not Ebola is transmissible through the air, which is the subject of much debate and great speculation, we do know that close physical contact with an infected person is a sure fire way to put one’s self at risk of contracting the virus.
After yesterday’s bombshell admission that an Ebola patient is being treated in Dallas, a second potential victim is now being monitored. This person evidently had close physical contact with “patient zero.”
KENS-5 San Antonio is reporting:
DALLAS — Due to close contact with a patient diagnosed with the Ebola virus, a second person is under the close monitoring of health officials as a possible second patient, said the director of Dallas County’s health department Wednesday morning in an interview with WFAA.
Zachary Thompson, the director of Dallas County Health and Human Services, says all those who’ve been in close contact with the diagnosed patient are being monitored as a precaution. However, Thompson pointed to one person in particular as a potential second case.
“Let me be real frank to the Dallas County residents, the fact that we have one confirmed case, there may be another case that is a close associate with this particular patient,” he said in a Wednesday interview with WFAA. “… So this is real. There should be a concern, but it’s contained to the specific family members and close friends at this moment.”
The director continued to assure residents that the public isn’t at risk as health officials have the virus contained.
I’m sure that some officials have proclaimed that the public is not at risk in certain African nations as well. The truth is that people do need to remain calm but not while swallowing every bit of propaganda they are fed.
You can not trust every word you hear from health officials at this point. It is their collective wisdom which has left the momentous world-wide Ebola pandemic spiraling out of control.
It is time to prepare.
Ebola patient says he flew on United, airline says
CNN) -- [Breaking news update at 5:48 p.m. ET Wednesday]
The Ebola patient being treated in Texas told authorities he flew part of his trip on United Airlines, a spokesperson for the airline said, citing information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The airline believes the patient flew from Brussels to Washington Dulles and then from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth on September 20, the spokesperson said.
"The director of the CDC has stated there is 'zero risk of transmission' on any flight on which the patient flew because he was not symptomatic until several days after his trip and could not have been contagious on the dates he traveled," the spokesperson said.
The Texas hospital treating the Ebola patient says there was no reason to admit him when he first came to the hospital last Thursday night.
"At that time, the patient presented with low-grade fever and abdominal pain. His condition did not warrant admission. He also was not exhibiting symptoms specific to Ebola," Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement Wednesday. "The patient returned via ambulance on Sunday, September 28, at which time EMS had already identified potential need for isolation. The hospital followed all suggested CDC protocols at that time. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas' staff is thoroughly trained in infection control procedures and protocols."
The patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, is a Liberian National who is 42 years old, according to a friend who knows the patient well. This is Duncan's first trip to the United States, where he was visiting family and friends.
Ebola’s arrival in U.S. was inevitable, experts say
The world suddenly seemed a lot smaller when news broke Tuesday that the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. is being isolated and treated at a Dallas hospital.
While the outbreak in West Africa has sickened more than 6,000 people and killed 3,083, it was only a matter of time before the virus hit closer to home, experts said.
Dr. Edward Goodman, hospital epidemiologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, said he was not surprised that the Ebola virus came to his doorstep, given the number of cases in Africa.
There is “plenty of opportunity for people to fly over and come to any part of the United States,” he told reporters Tuesday.
Other experts agree that it was inevitable for the Ebola virus to spread beyond Africa. Given the unprecedented scale of the virus’ outbreak in West Africa, at least a handful of imported cases were expected to arrive in other countries.
But many predicted that the Ebola virus would reach another country before the U.S. Using mathematical models to predict how infectious diseases spread, experts at Northeastern University ranked the top 15 countries where Ebola could emerge next.
The United Kingdom ranked third on that list, second only to the African nations of Ghana and Gambia. The U.S. had a much lower probability of having an imported Ebola case.
Still, Dr. Gerardo Chowell, an associate professor at Arizona State University and an expert in modeling infectious diseases, wasn’t surprised. “It’s just a matter of probabilities,” he said.
Chowell has focused on predicting the spread of the epidemic in Africa, especially Nigeria.
Rate of infection
A key factor in the spread of infectious diseases is the number of people a sick person can infect.
If that number, known as the basic reproduction number, or R0, is less than one, it’s unlikely the disease will spread. If it’s greater than one, there’s potential for a large outbreak.
In the case of Ebola, R0 has been documented to range from 1.3 to 1.8, depending on factors such as population density and how quickly cases are diagnosed and isolated.
The R0 for Ebola is a lot lower than for other illnesses such as measles, whose R0 is 18. But factors such as fear, an inadequate number of health care workers and abject poverty in parts of West Africa are fueling the spread of the virus there.
That situation is different in Dallas. “This is not Africa,” Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson told reporters. “We have a great public health infrastructure to deal with this type of disease.”
The opportunity for infectious diseases like Ebola to go global has increased with international air travel — and Dallas and Houston are major hubs.
There is a direct daily flight from Lagos, Nigeria, to George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. More than 71,000 people have traveled nonstop from Africa to that airport in the past year, according to the Houston Airport System. Many more passengers may have traveled to and from Africa on flights that connected in Europe and the Middle East.
There is no direct flight from a city in Africa to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. But D/FW saw nearly 7 million international passengers last year.
Quarantine facilities at these airports could be used to isolate travelers with symptoms of Ebola. But so far, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has not asked airports to adopt special measures as they did with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome earlier this year.
Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the CDC, and other public health officials maintain that Americans should have faith in the U.S. public health system. He told reporters that spread of the disease in Dallas is not expected because of early isolation of the patient.
President Barack Obama had met with the director at CDC headquarters in Atlanta two weeks ago.
At that time, the president offered assurances that the outbreak could be contained. “In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores,” he said, “we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home.
“We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely.”
Dallas Ebola patient vomited outside apartment on way to hospital
DALLAS (Reuters) - Two days after he was sent home from a Dallas hospital, the man who is the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States was seen vomiting on the ground outside an apartment complex as he was bundled into an ambulance.
"His whole family was screaming. He got outside and he was throwing up all over the place," resident Mesud Osmanovic, 21, said on Wednesday, describing the chaotic scene before the man was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday where he is in serious condition.
The hospital cited the man's privacy as the reason for not identifying him. However, Gee Melish, who said he was a family friend, identified the man in Texas infected with Ebola as Thomas Eric Duncan.
The New York Times said that Duncan, in his mid-40s, helped transport a pregnant woman suffering from Ebola to a hospital in Liberia, where she was turned away for lack of space. Duncan helped bring the woman back to her family's home and carried her into the house, where she later died, the newspaper reported. Four days later Duncan left for the United States, the Times said, citing the woman's parents and neighbors.
Texas health officials said that up to 18 people, including five children, had contact with the Ebola patient after he traveled to the United States from Liberia in late September. The children had gone to school early this week but have since been sent home and are being monitored for symptoms.
The Dallas Ebola case has prompted national concern over the potential for a wider spread of the deadly virus from West Africa, where at least 3,338 people have died in the worst outbreak on record.
US hunts contacts of seriously ill Ebola patient
Dallas (AFP) - US health officials scoured the Dallas area Wednesday for people -- including schoolchildren -- who came in contact with a Liberian man who was diagnosed with Ebola, as it emerged a hospital mix-up saw him initially turned away.
More people may have been exposed to the contagious man after he first sought treatment on September 25 because an apparent miscommunication among staff resulted in his release back into the community for several days, Texas hospital officials admitted.
Ebola is spread through close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, and can only be transmitted when a patient is showing symptoms like fever, aches, bleeding, vomiting or diarrhea.
The man -- the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola on US soil -- flew from Liberia, the hardest-hit nation in West Africa's deadly Ebola outbreak, and arrived in Texas on September 20 to visit family. He fell ill on September 24.
He went to the hospital the next day but was sent home because the medical team "felt clinically it was a low-grade common viral disease," said Mark Lester, executive vice president of Texas Health Resources.
"He volunteered that he had traveled from Africa in response to the nurse operating the checklist and asking that question," Lester added.
"Regretfully, that information was not fully the communicated throughout full team."
A hospital statement issued later in the day said his initial symptoms on September 25 were "low-grade fever and abdominal pain," and that "his condition did not warrant admission."
The patient is currently in serious but stable condition.
He came in contact with schoolchildren before he returned via ambulance to the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas on September 28, and was placed in strict isolation.
Dallas parents fearing Ebola remove children from school
Parents on Wednesday were removing their children from a Dallas school where a student may have had contact with the Ebola patient diagnosed Tuesday.
A letter to parents of children at L.L. Hotchkiss Elementary School, 6929 Town North Drive, says in part:
“This morning, we were made aware that one of our students may have had contact with an individual who was recently diagnosed with the Ebola virus. This student is currently not showing any symptoms and is under close observation by the Dallas County Health and Human Services Department. As a precautionary measure, the student has been advised to stay home from school. Since this student is not presenting any symptoms, there is nothing to suggest that the disease was spread to others, including students and staff.”
At a news conference at noon Wednesday, Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said students attending four different Dallas Independent School District schools possibly have been exposed to the Ebola virus.
He said the district was informed the five students were in contact with the Ebola patient over the weekend. They have been in school since, but are now at home and likely will be kept there for 21 days.
Dallas County is working with the Centers for Disease Control to have "boots on the ground" to monitor those who might have been exposed, officials said.
WFAA’s Sebastian Robertson is reporting that concerned parents are picking up their children from the school where one of the students may have attended.
The Ebola patient was visiting a neighborhood where 33 languages are spoken, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said.
According to The Associated Press, the sister of the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States says he told relatives he notified officials the first time he went to the hospital that he was visiting from Liberia.
Mai Wureh says her brother, Thomas Eric Duncan, went to a Dallas emergency room on Friday and they sent him home with antibiotics. She says he said hospital officials asked for his Social Security number and he said that he didn’t have one because he was visiting from Liberia.
Duncan arrived in the U.S. on Sept. 20 to be with relatives in Dallas. He began to develop symptoms last Wednesday and sought care two days later. He was released and returned to the hospital and was admitted Sunday.
Questions arose over why the patient was released in the first place.
“He was not exhibiting symptoms consistent with keeping him. If the person is not exhibiting the symptoms there would be no reason to keep them,” Texas Health Resources spokesman Wendell Watson said. “That’s a judgment call one of the carriers would have to make. We are following up as well as the CDC and Texas Department of State Health Services.”

Dallas Ebola Patient Was Another Visa Mistake
By Jessica Vaughan, October 1, 2014
Look up "likely visa overstay" in the dictionary, and you should find a picture of Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who is the first Ebola case diagnosed within the United States, and who is now being treated in a Dallas hospital.
This looks like another good case for the consular officers training manual of a non-immigrant visa that never should have been issued, but which could have serious public health consequences, not to mention monetary costs.
According to his Facebook page and other reports, Duncan is a 40-something, single, unemployed Liberian living in Ghana who applied sometime in the last year for a visa to visit his sister in the United States. It was reportedly his first time visiting this country.
That is six strikes against his application:
Liberian (5th highest overstay rate of any country in the world)
Living outside country of citizenship
First time traveler to the United States
Sister living in the United States.
Together, all these factors should have weighed very heavily against the issuance of a visitor's visa to Duncan. He clearly appears unqualified.
In 2013, more than 3,500 non-immigrant visas were issued to Liberians. This number has grown steadily since 2009, when just over 1,300 were issued. Most are issued to tourists and business travelers. A relatively high percentage do not return, but settle here illegally to join a well-established Liberian community (many of whom have won green cards in the visa lottery).
The federal government has yet to disclose the details of Duncan's immigration history, but it is fair to ask why he was issued a visa in the first place? More importantly, what steps are being taken to prevent others who may be infected from entering the country?
Using 2013 non-immigrant visa issuance statistics and information on visa validity periods, I estimate that there are about 5,000 people from Sierra Leone, 5,000 people from Guinea, and 3,500 people from Liberia who have valid non-immigrant visas to enter the United States.
The president and his immigration agencies have the authority and the responsibility to deny admission to any alien that has (or cannot establish to the government's satisfaction that he or she doesn't have) a communicable disease of public health significance, such as ebola. In the midst of this severe outbreak, the government should be setting up more robust screening protocols. Reportedly, travelers to the United States are simply being questioned about their contact with infected people and are checked for a fever. In contrast, three African countries (Namibia, Kenya, and Zambia) have banned travelers from the countries that are experiencing the outbreak (Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea).
In July, a member of Congress sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson suggesting that we bar entry to any foreign travelers who have visited the three Ebola-stricken countries within 90 days of seeking entry to the United States.
But, as with the threat from terrorism and from foreign criminal cartels, the Obama administration seems reluctant to use immigration controls even to protect the homeland.
HAWAII Patient in isolation at Queen’s Medical Center, Ebola a possibility
October 1, 2014 The Dept of Health has confirmed a patient is currently in isolation and undergoing testing in Honolulu.
The Hawaii Nurses Association said the person is being treated at The Queen’s Medical Center.
Officials told KHON2 Ebola is a possibility, however the patient has yet to be specifically tested for the virus.
“We are early in the investigation of a patient — very, very, early, who we’re investigating that might have Ebola,” said Dr. Melissa Viray, deputy state epidemiologist. “It’s very possible that they do and they have Ebola, I think it’s also more likely that they have another condition that presents with similar symptoms.”
Dr. Viray said the patient could have a number of illnesses including Ebola, flu, malaria and typhoid.
Dr. Viray wouldn’t confirm any details about the patient, symptoms, or if the person had recently traveled to West Africa. But she did say red flags for Ebola include fever and recent travel to that area.
“Why is this person being isolated?” KHON2 asked.
“When we’ve asked the hospitals to tell us about is anyone with a travel history, and anyone with a fever, and when those things come together, we’ve asked them to be very careful and in an abundance of caution while you’re working, for whatever else might be going on, also make sure you isolate against Ebola, just in case,” she said.
“So it sounds like this person does have a fever and recently traveled to West Africa,” KHON2 asked.
“Again, I can’t be the one to confirm that,” Dr. Viray said.
The patient is currently being kept in a regular room and anyone who goes in or out must wear protective gear, officials said.
“They’re monitoring who goes in and out of that room and making sure that everybody as safe as possible, while the patient is being evaluated for Ebola and what other conditions that patient might have,” Dr. Viray said.
“Should the public concerned?” KHON2 asked.
“No, absolutely not. Like I said, this is a possible case we’re investigating. We don’t know if this is Ebola or a number of other conditions,” she said.
Health officials say it’s too early to say if the person will be tested.
There are 1,400 nurses assigned to work at The Queen’s Medical Center. The hospital has assured them that procedures are in place to protect them while the patient is being monitored.
A message sent to all employees Wednesday said that the hospital is “evaluating a patient for possible symptoms that may be consistent with Ebola.”
The union that represents the nurses was tipped off about the message Wednesday afternoon.
Joan Craft, president of the Hawaii Nurses Association, immediately contacted the hospital for assurance that safety procedures are in place to protect her members.
“Blood and fluid procedures are safe, but there are a lot of contagious things you can come in contact with,” she told KHON2. “Ebola is very frightening, but procedures are safe and we just want to make sure everyone knows that.”
The HNA also wanted to make sure that if someone is pregnant or otherwise uncomfortable dealing with the patient, that he or she does not have to be involved in the monitoring of the patient.
Experts gave us that reassurance last month and said then that unless you traveled to an area that was experiencing an outbreak, the risk of contracting Ebola is very low.
There is no room designed specifically for Ebola at Queen’s Medical Center, but the hospital says it is equipped to deal with the virus if needed.
“If someone showed up in the ER with suspected Ebola symptoms, they would immediately be placed in an isolation room,” Erlaine Bello, Queen’s Medical Center infectious disease specialist, previously told KHON2. “The door would be closed at all times. There would be a facilities log kept of everyone who entered the room and anyone who entered the room at a minimum would be wearing gloves, eye protection, goggles and a mask and impermeable gown.”
Dr. Bello said major hospitals and the health department have a good relationship with the federal CDC and that the state itself has the resources and the expertise to handle a case of Ebola if it were to appear here in the islands.

CANADIAN HEALTH AGENCY DELETES INFO on AIRBORNE SPREAD of EBOLA.
Text amended amidst concern over first confirmed case in America.
The CEDC also amended their website. WHY!? So sheepl will not beware and prepare.
Under a section entitled “mode of transmission,” the original text stated that, “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.”
The Public Health Agency of Canada has deleted information from its official website which indicated that the “airborne spread” of Ebola was strongly suspected by health authorities, amidst efforts by officials in Texas to calm concerns about the first outbreak of the virus in America.
AIRBORN * Growing concerns Ebola airborn
November 2012 NOTE THE DATE! CDC has known Ebola is airborn for years but is still lying.
Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species. In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them. The researchers say they believe that limited airborne transmission might be contributing to the spread of the disease in some parts of Africa.

American cameraman for NBC News diagnosed with Ebola in Liberia
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An American freelance television cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has tested positive for the Ebola virus and will be flown back to the United States for treatment, the network said on Thursday in its own online report.
The diagnosis of the freelancer, hired earlier this week to work with NBC News chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman, is believed to mark the first time an American journalist has been diagnosed with the deadly disease since the current outbreak in West Africa.

Imagine ship full of U.S. soldiers with Ebola
October 3, 2014 Kentucky Senator Doctor Rand Paul is warning that handling Ebola in a politically correct manner will rebound.
Dangerous decisions such as keeping travel open from Africa and sending soldiers to fight Ebola have been dominated by political correctness. Because of political correctness, we’re not making sound, rational, scientific decisions.
The head of the CDC said EBOLA will never come to the U.S. Same liar who is saying ebola is not airborn.
Americans should not underestimate the transmissibility of this EBOLA.
He also criticized Obama’s decision to send 3,000 military members to West Africa.
You have to be concerned about 3,000 soldiers getting back on a ship. Where is disease most transmittable? When you’re in a very close confines on a ship! “Can you imagine if a whole ship full of our soldiers catch Ebola?”

Patient with Ebola symptoms enters Washington hospital
Washington (AFP) - A patient with symptoms that could be associated with the deadly Ebola virus and a recent travel history to Nigeria was admitted Friday to a Washington-area hospital, a spokeswoman told AFP.
"We can confirm that a patient has been admitted to Howard University Hospital in stable condition, following travel to Nigeria and presenting with symptoms that could be associated with Ebola," said Howard University spokeswoman Kerry-Ann Hamilton.
"In an abundance of caution, we have activated the appropriate infection control protocols, including isolating the patient."
No further details were released about the patient.
Symptoms of Ebola can include fever, aches and pains, vomiting and diarrhea.
The virus is spread through close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person.
The first diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States was announced on Tuesday, after a man from Liberia who had traveled to Texas fell ill days after he arrived.
Nigeria is one of five West African nations that have battled Ebola this year, but has had fewer than two dozen cases and as many as eight deaths linked to the arrival of a sick airline passenger from Liberia, far less than the thousands of infections in neighboring countries.
Nigeria's president declared the nation Ebola-free at a UN meeting late last month.
US and global health authorities have said Nigeria was near to being able to announce an end to the outbreak there, which can only be established once 42 days have passed since the last infection.
More than 3,300 people have died across Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal already this year, in the world's largest outbreak of Ebola in history.

Aerosolized vs airborn
WE ARE BEING LIED TO.
What They Don't Want You to Know About Ebola USA
WHY is BORG media deliberately playing word games with the word "airborne," in relation to the Ebola virus, rather than pointing out that via a cough or a sneeze, where mucus and saliva travel through the air, called "Aerosolized Droplet Direct Contact," can infect anyone within reach of these aerosolized particles.
CDC Director Tom Frieden stated "Ultimately, we are all connected by the air we breathe." A telling statement, especially when the entire speech is listened where it seemed as if that comment was out of place, which many noticed after listening to it. Disregarding the difference between airborne and aerosolized becomes almost ominous in nature.
Ebola virus is rapidly mutating
A study of some of the earliest Ebola cases in Sierra Leone reveals more than 300 genetic changes in the virus as it has leapt from person to person. The virus has mutated more than 300 times from previous strains of Ebola. Researchers have also pinpointed about 50 places in the genetic code where the virus has changed since this outbreak started. So far, they don't know what any of those mutations mean.

White House: Beefed-up Ebola screenings coming to five U.S. airports
New measures will be put in place in New York City, Newark, Chicago, Atlanta and the Washington, D.C., area
Hours after the first Ebola patient diagnosed on U.S. soil died from the illness, the United States government announced tougher screenings of passengers arriving at five major American airports from the countries at the epicenter of the crisis.
“We don’t have a lot of margin for error,” President Barack Obama told state and local officials on a conference call to discuss the response to the historic outbreak in West Africa.
“If we don’t follow protocols and procedures that are put in place, then we’re putting folks in our communities at risk,” Obama said.
The new screenings will begin Saturday at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. They will be implemented next week at Newark Liberty International Airport, Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C., Chicago's O’Hare International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, officials said.
Those five American airports are the places of entry into the United States for 94 percent of U.S.-bound travelers from the countries hit hardest by the outbreak. The screenings are expected to cover about 150 passengers per day.
Travelers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone will be taken to special screening areas at the airports. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials will observe them for symptoms and will ask them a series of questions about their potential exposure to Ebola. Medical staff will take the passengers’ temperature with thermometers that do not require physical contact.
If the travelers show symptoms or their answers raise concerns about possible exposure, an official from the Centers for Disease Control will examine them at a “quarantine station,” the CDC said. Other travelers will receive information about symptoms and be asked to provide detailed contact information.
The new measures come on top of exit screenings currently being performed on passengers looking to travel to the United States from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
“These measures are really just belt-and-suspenders — it’s an added layer of protection on top of the procedures already in place at several airports,” Obama said.
On a conference call with reporters, CDC Director Tom Frieden said exit screenings of 36,000 people in the past two months had barred 74 passengers with fever, and three with other symptoms. None have since been diagnosed with Ebola, Frieden said.
But Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of the disease on Wednesday at a Dallas-area hospital, slipped through. Officials say he did not exhibit symptoms until days after arriving in the United States. It’s not clear whether the new questionnaire would have determined he was at risk.
“We can’t make the risk zero here. We wish we could,” Frieden said.
Ebola sufferers are only contagious when they exhibit symptoms of the disease, such as fever. But the incubation period between infection and symptoms can run as long as 21 days. Given the White House’s “confidence” in the existing screening process, it was unclear what would be gained from a medical standpoint from the new screenings.
The awkward point was evident when a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest: “So you’re completely confident in the measures there, but you’re adding more confidence here?”
“That’s right,” Earnest replied. “This is a multilayered screening approach, and what it demonstrates is our commitment to ensuring the safety of the traveling public and the safety of the American people right here at home.”
Given the profound public unease about the possibility of an Ebola outbreak in the United States, the new measures could serve to contain American anxiety and tamp down support for an outright ban on travel to the United States from the afflicted countries — a step health professionals say would have the counterproductive effect of making it harder to get equipment, medicine and doctors to the frontlines.
America Ebola Floodgates May Have Burst Open
October 10, 2014 And one man, Duncan, bears the blame
America’s first case of Ebola, Thomas Duncan, admittedly lied about his health conditions on a form in Liberia. He never should’ve made it to the United States to begin with.
There are hundreds of infected people walking our streets. Ebola will break out by Nov. 1 in Brussels where Duncan spent 3 hours at that airport.
New York Ebola
October 11, 2014 Brooklyn Teen hospitalized after showing symptoms of Ebola.
A Brooklyn teenager was rushed to the Brookdale hospital Oct. 10 after showing symptoms consistent with Ebola.
He was in Sudan for 2 weeks and hospitalized there as well, but lied to officials about being sick so he could fly home.
Now NY considers if any of his family members should also be quarantined.
YES! WHY DELAY!?
It’s unclear exactly when the boy flew back into USA and just how many people he has been in contact with since returning.
Congo, adjacent to Sudan, has cases of the original (worse) Zaire Ebola in Sept.
Sudan had 2 suspected Ebola cases and shut down all reporting on Ebola in Sudan.
I have a sense Ebola is loose in USA and will show up by Nov. 1.
I am not the only person who wonders
1 - if USA will have elections
2 - if it will matter, judging by watching the GOP RINO wimps
I am NOT hopeful for the republic.
Beginning in July with all the illegals pouring over our border (planned since at least January) and the spread of many serious illnesses in our states, coupled with CDC LYING to us, I would have to say
All this is planned - as many are saying - all by design.

IT WAS PLANNED - by our governments!
GOD WARNED US.
New Jersey officials order 'symptom-less' NBC News crew into Ebola quarantine
(Reuters) - Members of an NBC News crew who worked with a cameraman who contracted Ebola in Liberia have been quarantined, New Jersey health officials said on Saturday.
Officials said the order was issued late Friday after the crew members violated an agreement to voluntarily confine themselves. They said none of the team has exhibited symptoms of the often fatal disease since returning from Liberia, one of three West African countries at the epicenter of the outbreak.
Meanwhile, the condition of the freelance American cameraman continued to improve. At Nebraska Medical Center, Ashoka Mukpo, 33, has received the experimental drug Brincidofovir and a blood transfusion from Dr. Kent Brantly, who earlier recovered from a bout with Ebola at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Brantly also contracted the disease in Liberia.
Mukpo "is eating some solid food now, so we’re still headed in the right direction," said Dr. Phil Smith, director of the biocontainment unit at Nebraska Medical Center.
The death this week of the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States has increased fears that the disease could spread outside West Africa, where it has killed more than 4,000 people. U.S. health authorities are stepping up efforts to stop the spread of the deadly virus.
Medical teams at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport, armed with Ebola questionnaires and temperature guns, began screening passengers who traveled from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea on Saturday.
The NBC News crew had agreed with health officials to stay in their homes after returning to the United States but then failed to do so, Donna Leusner, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Department of Health, said in a statement.
The mandatory quarantine will ensure the group remains confined until Oct. 22, the end of a 21-day maximum incubation period for Ebola, Leusner said.
"The NBC crew remains symptom-free, so there is no reason for concern of exposure to the community," she said.
NBC News has reported that the crew that worked with Mukpo included its medical correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman.
The spokeswoman declined to provide additional details about the crew, its size and the specific reasons behind the mandatory order, citing patient privacy.
THIS MAKES ME FURIOUS - BUT DOES NOT SURPRISE ME.
People have NO concern for the lives of others.
Their attitude is - if I am going to die of ebola, I am taking others with me!
CDC could quarantine U.S. citizens for weeks if they refuse Ebola screenings
Special-Ops Dire Ebola Warning! Ebola Vaccine Is Trigger For The Plague!

Ebola Vaccine is the trigger
ENTIRE COUNTRIES MAY BE VACCINATED!
October 12, 2014 The Ebola vaccine is likely the trigger for the coming Ebola plague.
This is from from a special-ops source within the United States military.
He suspects that the 1,600 US Army troops who were recently sent to West Africa to contend with the Ebola threat are to be exposed to this Ebola virus (a man-made variant of Zaire Ebola).
These troops will be injected with the new Ebola vaccine, which will subdue that specific virus. However, he suspects that the anti-Ebola vaccine will be given to these US soldiers in Africa, and it will contain a trigger element, making them unwittingly virus vectors. They will then come home to the United States, and disperse.
The pathogens will later be released into the atmosphere, perhaps in chemtrails and/or in ground releases, such as in the subway systems of major cities. The latter plot has already been perpetrated in the New York City subway system. (True, I remember it.)
The trigger element planted in the U.S. soldiers’ ebola vaccinations in Africa will then recombine in their bodies with the pathogen that is to be released throughout the United States. The product will be a deadly biological weapon of mass extermination designed to go airborne and thus be highly contagious.
The flu vaccines also contains the trigger element.
Thousands of illegals across the Texas border is a part of this very same plot.
The diabolical CDC is rounding up illegal Mexicans who are exhibiting flu-like symptoms.
Many illegals are being housed at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas.
WHY do I believe this?
I was never military, but I am a keyboard warrior, sort of I am God's special ops.
I have some medical training. I am in touch with a former US govt employee whistle blower and some other people with knowldge.
Govt in the past has tested vaccines on our troops - to their harm. they are gonna vaccinate our troops going to WAfrica with a vax with a trigger to go off after they are home - and spread ebola in USA.
DISCERN ALL - ALWAYS! Dont just swallow CNN koolade.

Ebola Vaccine Weaponized
I have seen supporting information from several sources.
This “Ebola Outbreak” is a hoax designed to scare us into accepting the MANDATORY Ebola Vaccine patented by the CDC, the NIH and by eugenicist, Bill Gates.
Once they have us good and scared with their FAKE news reports, they will line us up, inject us with Ebola “Trigger” Vaccine and achieve their long sought after goal of 90% depopulation!
VACCINES Are DANGEROUS, even fatal
All vaccines today have a kill trigger. Many pages of info
While I think the threat is real - yes, at the same time, they are really pushing the fearmongering with the vaccine agenda.
Come to think of it - we're not even in the time of Jacob's trouble yet - which is the time period WHEN massive pentilences will be unleashed.
No, the Georgia Guidestones will NOT achieve their agenda of 90% depopulation(it won't even be nearly that figure during the great trib, according to the book of Revelation).
EBOLA incubation period
21 days is not the maximum according to WHO.
95% average in the range of 1 to 21 days, 98% falls within the 1 to 42 day interval.
3% up to 42 days
2% who knows ?
Two blood tests - not merely one - 48 hours apart is only why to test properly.

As virus spreads, insurers exclude Ebola from new policies
By Carolyn Cohn, Richa Naidu and Avik Das
(Reuters) - As fear of Ebola infections spreads to developed economies, U.S. and British insurance companies have begun writing Ebola exclusions into standard policies to cover hospitals, event organizers and other businesses vulnerable to local disruptions.
As a result, new policies and renewals will become costlier for companies opting to insure business travel to West Africa or to cover the risk of losses from quarantine shutdowns at home, industry officials told Reuters.
"What underwriters are doing at the moment is they're generally providing quotes either excluding or including Ebola - and it's much more expensive if Ebola is included," said Gary Flynn, an event cancellation broker at Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group Plc in London.
While Ebola has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa, and other diseases such as influenza are arguably more likely to cause measurable harm in the West, the arrival of a few isolated Ebola cases in Western countries has focused their insurers' minds on the virus's potential to cause damage.
The impact on liability insurance has been limited. In the United States, workers' compensation covers medical care and lost income for those who fall ill at work. Because such policies are regulated at state level, Ebola exclusions are unlikely.
Some property and casualty insurers, however, are considering Ebola before writing or renewing policies.
ACE Ltd said on Wednesday that its global casualty unit, which offers coverage for U.S.-based companies whose employees travel or that have operations abroad, was using a policy endorsement to exclude Ebola on a "case-by-case basis" during the underwriting process on new policies and renewals.
It said it was taking into account the risk posed by Ebola to clients who travel to and have operations in African countries with "potentially higher risk exposure".
Others are introducing new products tailored for Ebola.
"Probably the biggest issue coming up is business interruption," said Tony DeFelice, managing director of Aon Risk Solutions' national casualty practice in the United States.
A business interruption could be anything from the loss of key employees to sickness to the quarantine of an airliner or cruise ship used by a suspected patient suffering from Ebola or any other serious infectious disease.
But many property and business interruption (BI) policies are triggered only by direct physical damage to property, insurance broker Marsh wrote this month in a note on Ebola.
"This means that without special provisions - for example, manuscripted wording to broaden coverage - healthcare providers' property insurance and BI policies would likely not be triggered based solely on the presence of Ebola," Marsh said.
Miller Insurance Services LLP and William Gallagher Associates last week launched the first product to insure hospitals against losses from any shutdown made necessary by Ebola quarantine, teaming up with Lloyd's of London underwriter Ark Syndicate.
More could follow. Aon Plc has created an "Ebola task force" to monitor the outbreak and help clients prepare for potential risks.
JLT's Flynn said the cost of insuring an event against Ebola would be about triple the amount of normal cancellation insurance, if the venue was in a region not known to be affected by the virus.
He said organizers would pay about 0.1 percent of potential revenue from an event for insurance excluding Ebola coverage. Including Ebola, the cost rises to about 0.3 percent.
No events have yet been canceled in Britain or the United States as a result of Ebola; only three cases have been diagnosed in the United States to date, and none in Britain. But concern has been growing, and Ebola has moved to the forefront of the U.S. election campaign.
The U.S. government said on Tuesday that travelers arriving from any of the three centers of the outbreak, Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea, must fly into one of five airports that have enhanced screening in place. Britain is also screening arriving air and rail travelers.

Ebola Patients Being Disappeared
October 24, 2014 - Hospital staff and police, EMTs told NOT to say EBOLA.
Doctor says health authorities hiding cases to prevent panic.
Whistleblower Dr James Lawrenzi tells of patients going missing with ebola symptoms, staff being told its malaria, hazmat equipment being taken away from nursing staff & something strange about how the authorities are acting over this Ebola threat.
Health authorities are covering up Ebola cases in the United States and disappearing patients in an effort to avoid hysteria.
They’re doing something with the patients.
Dr James Lawrenzi warns that the true scale of the situation is being deliberately downplayed. Shortly after Duncans arrival in the United States, he was told by a doctor at Truman Lakewood Medical Center in Kansas City they had taken in a possible Ebola patient who had a high fever and was bleeding out of all his orifices having recently returned from West Africa.
The following day, Lawrenzi was told the patient had “disappeared” against medical advice, but he wouldn’t have been able to leave on his own given his medical condition.
Staff were told that the patient had malaria.
Drug reps from within the area warned of possible Ebola cases in the area.
A second possible Ebola patient was admitted to Research Medical Center in Kansas City the following day but also quickly “disappeared,” with hospital bosses claiming he had typhoid.
Lawrenzi staff told not to use the word “Ebola,” so have 911 dispatchers in New York.
HCA removed protective gear and Hazmat suits from local hospitals without replacing it.
Lawrenzi said the situation was “much more serious than they’re letting on.”
In September 2014 when Ebola started kicking off here in the US, and all of a sudden you started hearing about patients possibly having Ebola and hospitals beginning to test for it.
Patient at Truman Medical Center had a possible Ebola patient bleeding out of all of his orifices, in septic shock, hypotensive, high fever, he was from Africa, and had recently been here in the Kansas City area.
Patients in several states are showing up in ER and hospital tells us its - not ebola.
Ebola is a financial disaster for a hospital.
105 being monitored for Ebola in Pa.
Public health workers are monitoring 105 people in Pennsylvania for Ebola symptoms, the state Department of Health announced Monday.
That figure includes everyone in the state known to have arrived from three Ebola-ravaged West Africa countries in the last 21 days, according to new state monitoring rules.
The department did not immediately indicate how many of the travelers had potential exposure to the virus in Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone. Those with possible or likely exposure to Ebola could face mandatory travel restrictions or quarantine, state health officials said last week.
They have declined to make available county-by-county tallies of those being monitored. On Friday, Allegheny County health director Dr. Karen Hacker said she knew of no one in the county who would fall under the new monitoring protocols.
Monitoring for any other affected travelers in Western Pennsylvania would fall to the state health department.
The protocols took effect Monday following a directive from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which ordered Pennsylvania and five other states to tighten checks for travelers arriving from the countries most harmed by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The states together account for 70 percent of up to 150 people who arrive each day in the United States from those countries.
In Pennsylvania, state or local health workers will check in with the affected travelers twice a day during the three-week period when an infected person would begin showing symptoms and turn contagious.
The checks will be conducted by phone, in person or via Skype, according to state health officials. Workers will monitor for fevers and watch for symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting and unexplained bleeding.
Any monitored people who develop symptoms would be rushed to a nearby hospital to be tested and isolated, state Deputy Health Secretary Martin Raniowski said last week. Those who defy monitoring expectations or travel restrictions could face legal action.
Other states set to bolster monitoring this week are New York, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Georgia. Pennsylvania has no known Ebola cases.
More than 4,900 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have died from Ebola since the outbreak began in December. A man from Liberia died this month after contracting the virus there and carrying it to Dallas, Texas, where two of his hospital nurses caught the disease from him. They have recovered.
Ebola Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio
Oct 28, 2014 Man quit who had worked for Club Chef http://www.clubchef.com in the Ft. Wright/Covington, Kentucky area. Because of a co-worker from Africa with ebola symptoms, he expects an outbreak in the Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio tri-state area.
Club Chef produce is shipped throughout the Mid-West and the entire Eastern Seaboard - Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, W. Virginia, New Jersey, N Carolina, S. Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, some goes to the military.
Club Chef lost 20 trucks of produce a few weeks ago because two Africans had washed their face & hands in toilet bowls and test samples revealed bacteria in the produce a day later. No body on the outside heard a word about it.
October 30, 2014 - African Muslims are being used in the U.S. food processing industry as a EBOLA Trojan Horse. Yesterday I mentioned EBOLA employees at Club Chef food processing produce shipped to many states. It seems true also of Ohio Fresh Way Foods.
Whether our initial EBOLA was real or false I dont know, but I suspect the plan is very real.
Obama on Ebola fight: US can't seal itself off
WASHINGTON (AP) — Pushing to confront Ebola at its West African source, President Barack Obama said Wednesday the United States was not immune to the disease but cautioned against discouraging American health care workers with restrictive measures that confine them upon their return from the afflicted region. "We can't hermetically seal ourselves off," he declared.
His remarks came amid debate between the federal government and several states over how returning health care workers should be monitored. The White House has pushed back against overly restrictive measures, including proposals for travel bans or isolation measures adopted by some states.
"Yes, we are likely to see a possible case elsewhere outside of these countries, and that's true whether or not we adopt a travel ban, whether or not you adopt a quarantine," Obama said from the White House, surrounded by health care workers who have volunteered or will volunteer to serve in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea, where the disease has killed nearly 5,000.
"We have to keep in mind that if we're discouraging our health care workers, who are prepared to make these sacrifices, from traveling to these places in need, then we're not doing our job in terms of looking after our own public health and safety," he added.
Obama did not mention any specific case, but a nurse who treated Ebola patients in West Africa and has shown no signs of the disease was isolated in a hospital tent in New Jersey and now is abiding by a voluntary quarantine in her home state of Maine. The nurse, Kaci Hickox, said Wednesday that she planned to defy those guidelines if the state's policy didn't change by Thursday.
The White House has argued that stricter measures adopted by states such as New Jersey and New York could hurt efforts to recruit doctors and nurses to volunteer their services in West Africa. The federal government's guidance says only health care workers who have been exposed to Ebola directly, such as through a needle pin prick or by not having adequate protection, should face isolation.
Still, the Pentagon announced guidelines Wednesday that said U.S. troops returning from Ebola response missions in West Africa will be kept in supervised isolation for 21 days. Obama has said the military's situation is different from that of civilians, in part because troops are not in West Africa by choice.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest rejected suggestions that the policies employed by the Pentagon and states that are stricter than guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conveys a mixed message to the American public.
"The fact of the matter is, those differences in application of the policy have not interfered with the ability of the federal government to coordinate with them as these policies are implemented," he said.
The president was introduced by Dr. Kent Brantly, who was infected with Ebola while working in Liberia and was successfully treated in the United States.
Ahead of his appearance, Obama met in the secure Situation Room with his public health and national security team on the government's Ebola response.
Obama's Ebola response coordinator, Ron Klain, was planning his first visit to the CDC in Atlanta on Thursday. The White House said Klain would meet with Director Dr. Tom Frieden and other senior CDC officials.
