We have a aircraft flying to the US with a Bioterror weapon on board in the form of an Ebola patient. It only take one human mistake in process or material to kill hundreds, thousands even millions of Americans.

Why should the average american trust CDC to handle this when ALL of our lives are at stake?

Is this not a direct threat to the United States of America? They should rig up that military ship hospital and take these pateints there and isolate anyone that goes near that ship untill weeks of test show no sign of Ebola and NOT take them to the center of one of largest US cities.

as a US citizen I object to the current action of brining Ebola to the US on purpose. Yes I hope these sick americans get better but not at the risk of infecting more Americans and brining the virus into our cities.

Strange. Plane goes missing , another shot down and a couple of other planes crash. Now Ebola flying around in planes. Why do I feel like I am being told to not travel and possibly stay away from crowded areas.

Isn't Ebola (in some form or another) already in America…albeit a lab or CDC research centre…?

I was just thinking yesterday how the CDC lost track of those vials of Small Pox, which turned up in an FDA storage room, and now we're supposed to trust them with a couple Ebola patients?? I think something bad may end up happening, then again I'm slightly paranoid

It's a horrible disease, no doubt. But it's also horrible at spreading itself. Frankly, the more patients we have in the isolation units they prepped in ATL (versus in a hut in Africa) the better. This will be far and away the better option for "stopping" the disease. I can't imagine the CDC letting the family members of these people do tribal burial rituals (washing the bodies by hand) should they pass away. = spread of Ebola stopped...

why are these ebola threads made to sound so much like doom porn...geez, do a little research first, the flu is far more contagious than ebola

Who authorized them to bring this to US? President? Congress?

are you saying to kill everyone on board just because a 'suspected' ebola patient is among them ?

im sorry to say but if you answer YES to the shooting , you should examine yourself in front of the mirror, look into your eyes and ask yourself are you still retaining your humanity ?

once a nation lost it's humanity , it will turn into abomination like NAZI germany

It's not a good idea to shoot down the plane.
It would spread the virus over a large area.
I agree they shouldn't bring it here.
Don't put them on a military ship, don't put the men and women on the ship in danger, they should have kept and treated them where they were.
Not real sure about cdc doctors, if you trust government doctors just ask the vets how good they are.

That is their justification, I think… that all of our lives are at stake.

Juuust like when they invented the Atom Bomb.

Yeah, sure, let's shoot down planes with patients because some people are paranoid dimbulbs in the thick of hysteria.

The Vapors is a way bigger threat by way of unchecked idiocy.

This one I've been watching (and musing on in the Atlanta thread). No one is taking responsibility for the decision.

The Department of State issued a memo pointing to the CDC, from which I can find no statement. Someone from Emory on local news deflected the question too, vaguely saying, paraphrased, "they wanted to come home." P

No culpability if there is no official statement. Plausible deniability if this thing should go sideways.

From what I've read, not this strain. Other than maybe at Fort Detrick.

No, this only flies in the face of all government and military containment protocols. That's all. And, again, no one source-able taking responsibility for the decision.

These are American citizens. We don't have a policy of restricting American citizens coming home.
I do trust that our medical personnel will be able to control this. I would never advocate shooting down a plane unless it was filled with terrorists. These are our own people not potential bioweapons.

The plane is already on the ground in Atlanta folks. It's a done deal.

Yes. It's here already. The Reston strain is named for the city in northern Virginia. Reston Ebola only affects apes . It caused an outbreak in monkey houses back in 1989.a reply to: PurpleDog UK

They're Americans . They don't need anyone's authorization. Even sick Americans are allowed to come home. a reply to: Xeven

Source please.

In addition, the two are coming on separate flights.

I'm a bit confused as to why the spread is being attributed to washing of the body as though it's a primitive practice only found in third world countries. Back when I worked in a hospital, all deceased were washed after death as per written hospital policies, and by hand, before going to the funeral home where it is believed that morticians also wash the bodies using a hose and drain system. It is customary therefore in all cultures to do so, and before the availability of latex gloves everyone used a handheld washcloth.

And although I do know about cross-contamination and medical waste as a possible source of spreading, I feel that there has to be more to it.

So should the plane be shot down is one of the worst questions I've ever seen, OP. Killing innocents on board is no solution. Let the plane land somewhere and minimize the amount of contact the stricken person has with everyone. The SARS outbreak did teach us a few things.

To be perfectly honest to the situation these are not suspected cases. These are two Americans who are sick with Ebola being brought to the CDC for treatment and study. Still I don't advocate shooting down innocent people. That's a crazy mans thinking. c reply to: buntalanlucu
