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.”
