- - - - - - -
REVISED LIST OF 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 264(b) of title 42, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Amendment to Executive Order 13295. Based upon the recommendation of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Acting Surgeon General, and for the purposes set forth in section 1 of Executive Order 13295 of April 4, 2003, as amended by Executive Order 13375 of April 1, 2005, section 1 of Executive Order 13295 shall be further amended by replacing subsection (b) with the following:
"(b) Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza."
We're being lied to!
The WHO raised the death toll by 57 to 729 on Thursday, announcing that 122 new cases had been detected between Thursday and Sunday last week, bringing the total to more than 1,300.
"Current numbers of national and international response staff are woefully inadequate," Chan said, revealing that 60 health workers had died treating patients in the outbreak.
- 'Nearing catastrophe' -
The CDC will be all hands on deck to deal with this grave situation.

Not only does Atlanta have direct flights to/from Africa... the CDC is conveniently nearby.
I would worry that these morons are bringing it to America to "study" - or weaponize. The USA has never been exposed to ebola, there is no telling what could happen if it "escapes/spreads" into America's virgin ebola population.
See my post, a few above yours. Ebola HAS been here in the past, almost 25 years ago.

People, People, we have nothing to worry about... Our Govt. has a beautiful track record of never screwing anything up... RELAX!
I knew I had seen that POD for the medivac plane before. It's a small green house kit for home gardeners. I was looking to buy one a few years back.
One would think with the U.S. Defense Department being the contractor for the POD, it would be a bit more sophisticated.
It looks like a last minute thrown together POS for photo ops...
How many millions of our tax dollars made this *containment pod*...
