Much of the responsibility for the Ebola crisis that the United States is now facing can be laid squarely at the feet of Barack Obama. If Obama had banned all non-essential air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, Thomas Eric Duncan would have never gotten on to a plane to this country in the first place. And if Obama had directed the CDC to get all hospital staff in America some basic training about Ebola, we might not have two infected nurses at this point. But instead, this Ebola outbreak in America is now officially out of control. The fact that one of the sick nurses got on to an airplane while she was feeling feverish boggles the mind, and it is creating a tremendous amount of fear all over the nation. Already, one traveler showed up at Dulles airport in a full hazmat suit. The White House has announced that Obama has canceled a fundraising trip and will be holding an “emergency meeting” on Ebola. Hopefully he can start to get a handle on what is going on before it is too late.
News that a second nurse that was caring for Thomas Eric Duncan has Ebola sent shockwaves all over the country. Apparently those caring for him did not wear hazmat suits for the first two days. This is such a monstrous error that it is hard to put into words.
What made things even worse is that this second nurse decided to get on a plane even after she began exhibiting symptoms…
The CDC has announced that the second healthcare worker diagnosed with Ebola — now identified as Amber Joy Vinson of Dallas — traveled by air Oct. 13, with a low-grade fever, a day before she showed up at the hospital reporting symptoms.
The CDC is now reaching out to all passengers who flew on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth. The flight landed at 8:16 p.m. CT.
All 132 passengers on the flight are being asked to call 1 800-CDC INFO (1 800 232-4636). Public health professionals will begin interviewing passengers about the flight Wednesday afternoon.
If she was showing symptoms, that means that she was contagious.
Isn’t that what we have been told all along?
But CDC director Thomas Frieden, who like Barack Obama was reportedly once a “community organizer”, says that the risk to other passengers on that flight was “very low”…
CDC director Thomas Frieden said she had violated CDC guidelines against anyone using public transport while undergoing self-monitoring for exposure to Ebola. Frieden said Vinson did not report that her temperature had risen a small amount, to 99.5 degrees, before she departed for Dallas. He said her risk to other passengers was “very low.”
How in the world can he say that with a straight face?
She was showing symptoms.
She was contagious.
Anyone on that flight could now have Ebola.
And we might not know who has it for quite some time. According to the CDC, the incubation period for Ebola can be up to 21 days…
The incubation period, from exposure to when signs or symptoms appear, for Ebola ranges from 2 to 21 days (most commonly 8-10 days). Early symptoms include sudden fever, chills, and muscle aches. Around the fifth day, a skin rash can occur. Nausea, vomiting, chest pain, sore throat, abdominal pain, and diarrhea may follow.
But that information might not even be accurate.
A WHO report that was just released says that Ebola can have an incubation period of up to 42 days.
So several weeks from now we might have Ebola cases popping up all over the country.
We just don’t know.
And what makes all of this even worse is the fact that the plane this happened on continued to be used for five more flights after the sick nurse got off…
The Frontier Airlines jet that carried a Dallas healthcare worker diagnosed with Ebola made five additional flights after her trip before it was taken out of service, according to a flight-monitoring website.
Denver-based Frontier said in a statement that it grounded the plane immediately after the carrier was notified late Tuesday night by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the Ebola patient.
What a nightmare.
In addition, there may already be more cases of Ebola in Dallas.
Shtfplan.com is reporting that the boyfriend of nurse Nina Pham is a potential case.
And CNN has reported that the CDC is “assessing” four additional health care workers at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Just check out this screenshot.
Normally, Barack Obama’s incompetence doesn’t immediately cause a major national emergency.
But in this case, that may be exactly what has happened.
