DAKAR (Reuters) - Liberia's President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says the Ebola crisis is stabilising in her country and new data will soon prove that warnings from U.S. and U.N. experts of tens of thousands of cases were "simply wrong". The comments, made to France 24's English news channel late on Wednesday, follow forecasts from the World Health Organisation that 20,000 people could be infected with Ebola by early November. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has warned of hundreds of thousands of cases if swift action is not taken. "We are beginning to see a stabilisation … even in Monrovia which has been hit the hardest," Johnson Sirleaf said, referring to Liberia's capital city.
"I am waiting for the next projections and I hope they will admit that they’ve just been simply wrong, that all of our countries are getting this thing under control," she said.
Dr. Gil Mobley checked in and cleared airport security wearing a mask, goggles, gloves, boots and a hooded white jumpsuit emblazoned on the back with the words, “CDC is lying!”
“If they’re not lying, they are grossly incompetent,” said Mobley, a microbiologist and emergency trauma physician from Springfield, Mo.
“Once this disease consumes every third world country, as surely it will, because they lack the same basic infrastructure as Sierra Leone and Liberia, at that point, we will be importing clusters of Ebola on a daily basis,” Mobley predicted. “That will overwhelm any advanced country’s ability to contain the clusters in isolation and quarantine. That spells bad news.”
The incident, which took place when Obama visited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to discuss the U.S. response to the Ebola crisis, rattled Secret Service agents assigned to the president’s protective detail.

“The State of Delaware Office of Infectious Disease was notified of the admission, who subsequently notified the CDC. “The child is past the 21 day maximum incubation period and it has been determined by the CDC that the likelihood of Ebola infection is extremely low. Since the likelihood is low, the CDC declined to test this child for Ebola.
“The patient will continue to be observed in the hospital until the CDC and the infectious disease physician determine it is safe for the patient to be discharged from the hospital. “This patient is past the incubation period and as of tonight is symptom free. Working with state and federal officials, Bayhealth is committed to patient safety and protecting public health.”

There are closer CDC facilities? DO you know what the CDC is? Do you not know it is located in Atlanta, GA?
Edit, and what does Holder have to do with Benghazi? Do you mean Clinton? Please take your broad conspiracy blanket to another thread.
