Touché, the official reports say she showed no symptoms on the plane. Less reliable sources say she was showing late-stage symptoms, but we have no way of knowing. My concern is that if she collapsed immediately after deboarding, and died hours later, they would have told us if she had a heart attck or stroke or something commonplace that would cause these symptoms (privacy laws do not apply to the dead). Instead, they're just saying she tested negative for Ebola. I'll wait until we have autopsy results to decide.
ETA: it's good to remember that the National Enquirer broke the story about the John Edwards affair weeks before any mainstream credible outlet did. Tabloids are unreliable, but they have one advantage: they don't usually have to bow to the same pressures of censorship other outlets do. Perhaps the Mirror is actually more accurate about her symptoms and the rest are downplaying fears?

Been prepared, doing research and reading as much information as you can is not been paranoid, is just exercising caution and been smart about it, specially when is not cure and the infection is fast and fatal.
It is being paranoid...nothing you do, no "research", no "reading"...is helping anything. No one on this website has any effect on what is going on, no one on this website will be immune to an outbreak because they read about it, no one on this website has any clue what is going on...
Honestly, it sounds like a bunch of children talking about monsters under their bed...all of them think they know exactly what they are talking about...none of them do.
With the Ebola outbreak in West Africa proving difficult to control, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Tom Frieden, the world is looking to the pharmaceutical industry for solutions.
That's pushing up shares of a money-losing Canadian biotech firm called Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TKMR), which has been working on a treatment called TKM-Ebola. The stock jumped by almost one-third last week, and rose another 12 percent in early trading on Monday, before slipping back along with the rest of the market.
The treatment is considered one of the most advanced medications for Ebola, Vox notes. The company has been awarded a $140 million contract from the Department of Defense to develop the therapy, which protected 100 percent of primates infected with a lethal dose of the virus in an earlier study.
Monsanto, or Monsatan as many call them, has partnered with the Department of Defense to use a proxy third party company to develop a vaccine against Ebola. The seed money began at $1.5 million. The value of the deal could grow to an estimated $86 million dollars.
DoD Has Deployed EBOLA Detection Kits to National Guard Units In All 50 States
April 12, 2014,
On April 8th Congress was informed by the the Department of Defense [DoD] that because of emerging threats JBAIDS hemorrhagic fever assays have been deployed to National Guard units of all 50 States.
. “By partnering with the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and the Food and Drug Administration, we have made accessible additional diagnostic assays for high
consequence, low probability biological threat agents for use during declared public
health emergencies. This collaboration has facilitated the availability of viral hemorrhagic fever diagnostic assays for use during a declared emergency and adds
previously unavailable preparedness capabilities to this fielded system…
……To address the need for a near term capability to combat emerging threat materials,
we have already provided Domestic Response Capability kits to the National Guard weapons of mass destruction civil support teams resident in all 50 states. These
kits provide emerging threat mitigation capability that includes detection, personnel
protection, and decontamination.”

a reply to: marg6043I started a thread regarding Monsanto and Tekmira, days ago. It just got pushed to the bottom of the deck. ATS Thread: Monsanto & Tekmira: The Cure for Ebola
Knowing that Monsanto is behind this, should signal many red-flags. But, i guess people don't care about the "truth"; just about what the bs networks have to say.
Authorities in Nigeria on Monday announced a second case of Ebola in Africa's most populous country, an alarming setback as the total death toll from the disease in several West Africa countries shot up by more than 150 to 887.
Most of the newly reported deaths occurred in Liberia, where on Monday night a special plane to evacuate a second American missionary who fell ill with Ebola landed in the capital. Nancy Writebol is expected to arrive in Atlanta on Tuesday, where she will be treated at a special isolation ward.
Health authorities in Liberia ordered that all those who die from Ebola be cremated after communities resisted having the bodies buried nearby. Over the weekend, military police were called in after people tried to block health authorities in the West African nation from burying 22 bodies on the outskirts of the capital, Monrovia.
The World Health Organization announced Monday that the death toll has increased from 729 to 887 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.
Nigerian Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said the confirmed second case in his country is a doctor who had helped treat Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American man who died July 25 days after arriving in Nigeria from Liberia.
Test samples are pending for three other people who also treated Sawyer and now have shown symptoms of Ebola, he said. Authorities are trying to trace and quarantine others. abcnews.go.com...

It's a spin-o-rama, worse than the Tilt a Whirl of MH370. CNN also said that the doctor's symptoms abated an hour (give or take) after the serum was administered. It was stated that it had never been tested on humans (is this true? And if so, how did the serum affect the lab animals/monkeys? I guess that'll be announced by one of the networks.
But for dire symptoms to vanish in an hour? Wow, that's super fast.
A representative from the National Institutes of Health contacted Samaritan's Purse in Liberia and offered the experimental treatment, known as ZMapp, for the two patients, according to the source.
The drug was developed by the biotech firm Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., which is based in San Diego. The patients were told that this treatment had never been tried before in a human being but had shown promise in small experiments with monkeys.
According to company documents, four monkeys infected with Ebola survived after being given the therapy within 24 hours after infection. Two of four other monkeys that started therapy within 48 hours after infection also survived. One monkey that was not treated died within five days of exposure to the virus.
Brantly and Writebol were aware of the risk of taking a new, little understood treatment and gave informed consent, according to two sources familiar with the care of the missionary workers. In the monkeys, the experimental serum had been given within 48 hours of infection. Brantly didn't receive it until he'd been sick for nine days.
