Nope not in some safe Government lab where they accidentally expose each other like anthrax and smallpox, but a hospital in Georgia to treat two Americans who got it in Africa. Does this just not fly in the face of common sense? To prevent the spread of disease you limit the area of the disease, not fly it around the world.
One. Ebola is not a communicable disease like the common cold. Though it is aggressively infectious, which means that those infected are highly likely to get sick, it's not very contagious, meaning that it doesn't spread easily.It is similar to AIDS in that one has to come in direct contact with the blood or secretions of an infected person
Two. Though you may hear that the death rate of those infected approaches 90%, that occurs in areas where there is little or no access to modern medical facilities. Public health and medical professionals in highly industrialized countries could deal with it very quickly. It's an advantage that poor affected countries in West Africa don't have.
Two more unconfirmed cases in NYC hospitals from travelers returning from the Ebola region in Africa, which kind of renders this argument moot, since Ebola is already in America.
However you can make the argument that the Border Patrol, Customs, Homeland Security, etc....all FAILED in their jobs to prevent infectious diseases from entering the US. Or perhaps they were told to FAIL, by the Obama administration, so that diseases can be used as population control and get rid of those pesky white males who run America.
Border patrol also reports detaining, at last count, 71 individuals on the southern border, who are from the Ebola region before illegally entering the US. So the enter world is flocking to America thru the open Mexican-American border, bringing god knows what diseases.
Ebola in Georgia is not the fear you should worry about, you should fear the INVASION of people coming in thru Mexico, by why have borders. Soon the New World Order will take over and the UN will run the world.
well did they fly the two americans who tested positive for ebola by passenger plane or by military plane it would make sense to fly them by military plane so other people do not come in contact with them
A special medical chartered plane was used to transport the two patients, separately in two separate trips.
The super serum is experimental, not approved for general use and very little is available for use by anyone. Limited resource allocations apply here. If it works well, then it may be fast-tracked for approval.
We don't care how much Obama discloses at income etc.....I am sure he salted away tons of fund raiser money that he raises every day. How many Billions did he salt away from the Stimulus?? Shovel ready jobs, yet the highway trust fund is bankrupt......
I think a special prosecutor is needed, but Holder is just as corrupt.
On the National News TODAY they announced the FIRST confirmed case of Ebola in the U.S. Today is almost 1 complete month since you made this post. Why haven't the almighty upstanding republicans, who have been blathering for almost a complete month about this threat, done anything to stop it if they were so positive it was going to happen? Are they spending too much time making narcissistic observations and comments about how weak the democrats are? Shouldn't they care first about the health and well being of their constituents rather than focusing on what they other guy isn't doing?
You can make all the snyde comments you want about this side did or didn't do this, or that side would or wouldn't do that..but until all the unnecessary back handed bullshit stops...the people...will suffer while the sides wage silly stupid verbal terrorist attacks at each other.
Remember if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem
