CDC Releases Q&A On Ebola In America As Rumors Swirl Of Second US Case

from ZeroHedge:

Dallas County Health Officials earlier noted at least one person who had been in contact with the first US ebola patient was also being tested for the deasdly virus. They subsequently backed off that statement (oddly). Governor Rick Perry will be holding a press conference later today to calm the public we are sure, but in the meantime, the CDC has issued a helpful Q&A to ensure Americans continued to fly, spend, and consume at their leisure and don’t worry about the plague… “So this is real. There should be a concern, but it’s contained to the specific family members and close friends at this moment.”

Its Already Too Late – Dallas Hospital Discharged Sick Ebola Patient 2 Days Before Isolation

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/01/2014 08:44

While yesterday’s CDC press conference was factual, it was clearly very much designed to avoid panic as time and again the US public was reassured that Ebola in America was ‘contained’, ‘hard to contract’, and would ‘stop here’. However, as Bloomberg reports, the man with Ebola in Dallas was initially sent home from the hospital with antibiotics after seeking treatment for an unknown illness, officials said. We know CDC has stated the need for the US to be prepared but the fact that after the patient sought medical care on Sept. 26 and was sent home with antibiotics, he returned in an ambulance to Texas Health Presbyterian two days later and was admitted, suggests US healthcare workers are not prepared for the possibilities that Ebola is here in America (as this is the 13th possible case in the US).

Gov Says EBOLA No Biggy….Stocks & Treasury Yields Are Collapsing

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/01/2014 10:01 -0400

Yesterday’s late-day weakness in stocks is continuing as US equities open this morning led by a collapse in Dow Transports and further weakness in Russell 2000. Treasury yields are also plunging with 10Y at 2.435% (back below the oh-so-important Tepper “end of the bond bull” levels). High-yield credit markets are extremely volatile this morning.

Stocks are tanking on the week…

The End of the PONZI Could Come Like A Thief In The Night: Japan Stunned After Biggest Ever, $617 Billion “Fat Finger” Trading Error Slams Stocks

rom ZeroHedge:

Bloomberg reports that stock orders amounting to a whopping $617 billion (yes Bilion with a B) or more than the size of Sweden’s economy, were canceled in Japan earlier today, for reasons unknown although the early culprit is that this was one of the biggest trading errors of all time. Of course, since this trade was noted, and DKed, one can assume that a major whale was on the losing end of the trade: recall that this is precisely what happened to Goldman time and again, when some errant algo caused the firm to lose millions on several occasions in 2012 and 2013. There is one tiny difference: this time it was not Goldman, and the total amount was not a few paltry million but over half a trillion dollars!

Mass default looms as world sinks beneath a sea of debt

y Jeremy Warner, The Telegraph:

As if the fast degenerating geo-political situation isn’t bad enough, here’s another lorry load of concerns to add to the pile.

The UK and US economies may be on the mend at last, but that’s not the pattern elsewhere. On a global level, growth is being steadily drowned under a rising tide of debt, threatening renewed financial crisis, a continued squeeze to living standards, and eventual mass default.

I exaggerate only a little in depicting this apocalyptic view of the future as the conclusion of the latest “Geneva Report”, an annual assessment informed by a top drawer conference of leading decision makers and economic thinkers of the big challenges facing the global economy.

Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here.  Ebola has come to America.  Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasn’t.  And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result.  On Tuesday, the CDC announced that there is a confirmed case of Ebola in Dallas, Texas.  We know that this individual is a male and that he traveled by air from Liberia to Texas on September 19th.  At that time, he was not exhibiting any symptoms.  It is being reported that he started developing symptoms on September 24th and that he sought out treatment two days later.  Incredibly, he was turned away and sent home.  Then on September 28th he went to a hospital again and this time he was admitted for treatment.  That means that he could have potentially been spreading Ebola to others for at least four full days before finally getting treated at a hospital.  Now he is in intensive care at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.  The CDC says that “there is no doubt that we will stop it here” and is promising that “it will not spread widely in this country”.  The CDC better be right on both counts.

Globalist’s Wet Dream: Sierra Leone Government Cannot Account for More than 1,000 Ebola Patients

by Frances Martel, Breitbart:

Sierra Leone’s largest newspaper, the Awareness Times, is reporting with alarm that at least 1,028 Ebola patients appear to be missing in the country, as official Ministry of Health statistics account for a smaller number of combined victims and survivors of the disease than the total number of registered cases.

The Awareness Times report notes that the Ministry of Health has confirmed 2,000 cases of Ebola in the country. Its official statistics note that 540 have died, while 432 are classified as survivors. That leaves 1,042 unaccounted for cases.

The report follows up on a New York Times piece in which a Western diplomat is quoted as saying that official statistics in Sierra Leone are highly untrustworthy. According to the Times, those numbers are believed to be “largely inaccurate,” rendering them borderline useless. Said the diplomat: “Even a 2-year-old child can look at them and see they don’t add up.” The Times notes that Sierra Leone has responded to the crisis largely by quarantining large areas– nearly all 14 districts in Sierra Leone are at least partially quarantined, and it is believed that between one and two million people are being kept locked down due to this measure.
