Ebola stabilising in Liberia, doomsday forecasts wrong -president

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.

She seems confident or is it to calm people?

Just putting this here:

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.

Is that the same Dr Mobely who smokes a pound of weed a day?


Sorry if I can't take him seriously...

LOL! Why, medical marijuana has proven benefits? But, let's not sidetrack the thread.

I for one applaud his willingness to call BS on the medical establishment.

“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.”

Been saying that for ages.

FEMA Pandemic Exercise Series - September through November 2014

Very weird timing for this. What a coincidence!

Fact: we are not prepared for this.

Opinion: you can't read the article cited in this post and not see that is the case.

Speculation: it's going to be a nail biting month.

I have quietly been following this matter..

For speculation that seems to make sense to me

Armed contractor with criminal record was on elevator with Obama in Atlanta

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.

Something dawned on me.. She was let go with this as the last straw, where Holder was not let go over benghazi

(keep that in a note too..)

What if she was fired because of the visit.. It was supposed to be secret

I do not understand what the president was doing in Georgia.. There are closer CDC facilities..

The visit makes no sense because Obama is not the type of leader who visits the troops to check on progress


this was on the 16th for an unnecessary visit that conflicts with leadership style..
Secret Service Director was fired because this visit made the news

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.

a second case in Germany

A Ugandan doctor infected with Ebola virus was admitted Friday in a German hospital.
Come under close scrutiny of Sierra Leone on the night of Thursday to Friday, the patient was placed in quarantine at the University Hospital of Frankfurt.

German regional authorities announced that this is the second patient treated in Germany. Another man was indeed treated in Hamburg after arriving from West Africa in August. The Minister of Social Affairs Stefan Gruettner Hesse said the Ugandan doctor worked for an Italian humanitarian organization in Sierra Leone, helping people infected with Ebola virus before being infected himself. Health staff of the hospital is willing to accommodate Ebola patients, but added that "the adrenaline levels are naturally a bit higher when it comes to a real patient."


So most likely this patient had flied to Frankfurt. If you ever have been in Frankfurt airport its one of the chaotic airports ever. Everytime when i have been there it has been very crowded and of course noisy. News do not tell was the patient ill already before arriving to Germany or did he get symptoms during a stay.

First French Ebola patient leaves hospital

PARIS (Reuters) - A volunteer nurse who was the first French national to contract Ebola has left hospital after being successfully treated for the disease, France's health ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The volunteer caught the disease while working for charity Medecins Sans Frontieres in Liberia and was evacuated to France last month. The person was admitted to a military hospital just outside Paris and received an experimental treatment.

Did anyone noticed french patient posted in internet before? What was the experimental drug they admitted ? I have been watching news quite carefully so i wonder how i missed this one or was it ever even posted...

One I do not edit most of the time when I am think of something..

The holder thing was supposed to be fast and furious
(Clinton does not get along with michelle and Valarie.. She bit the bullet over politics... that is another thread..)

Educate do not downplay someone.. Please enlighten on the differences in CDC facilities.. If you have information a better way would have been to say it this way..

The CDC in atlanta handles XXXXXX

Their facility specializes in XXX.. Its the only one the president could have visited...

The fact does remove the theory from possibility.. It explains why he would have to go there instead of just conferring with the expert in DC that reports to him.. While outside his leadership style it may be big enough a requirement for him to at least poke his head in and get a quick education on exactly what can and cant be done..

That would have much politer good sir.. I have not had a chance to be rude to you.. Please give me time.. Till then.. Please do explain the functions of various facilities of the CDC.. The thread is titled Ebola: Facts, Opinions, and Speculations.

So I am speculating the the director of the Secret Service was let go because his presence was not supposed to be known in Atlanta.. regardless of the level of conspiracy here on the lowest level it would be a last straw..

Thank you

Child from Liberia taken to Delaware Hospital with possible Ebola infection

DOVER >> A child from Liberia possibly infected with Ebola has been admitted to Bayhealth Kent Hospital in Delaware, according to a press release on the hospital’s website.

According to the hospital, the infection is not confirmed but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been notified, and the child was admitted and placed in an isolation room.

The full press release from the hospital follows: “A child from Liberia was brought to the Bayhealth Kent General emergency department on Saturday, October 4.

The ED staff completed an initial assessment following the recently updated Centers for Disease Control guidelines for identifying suspected cases of Ebola. “After the assessment, and out of an abundance of caution, the child was admitted to a private isolation room and all CDC guidelines regarding specimen collection, transport, testing and submission for person under investigation for Ebola are being followed.

“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.”


No information when child arrived in US.

Teen with 'Ebola-like' symptoms quarantined

MIAMI - A teenager from West Africa was transferred from Mount Sinai Medical Center to Jackson Memorial Hospital on Sunday after exhibiting signs of Ebola, but the city of Miami Beach said preliminary results are negative.

City spokeswoman Nannette Rodriguez told WPLG on Monday that testing for the Ebola virus at an area Florida Department of Health laboratory was negative. That specimen was being sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a confirmation test as established by protocol.

Miami Fire-Rescue said the patient took a taxi to Mount Sinai after falling ill before being taken by ambulance to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where that patient was placed in quarantine.

"For the protection of the patients and residents in the area, or even visitors, we wanted to make sure that the area was sealed off," Miami Fire-Rescue Lt. Ignatius Carroll said.

Jackson Memorial Hospital released a statement Sunday saying established protocols are in place "to deal with infectious diseases in general and with Ebola in specific."

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also released a statement Sunday saying he was "confident that the protocol we have in place will safeguard the public from serious health risks."


Just few days ago i read something about Liberia and that taxis are all contaminated, so people use your own cars or bikes do not use public transportation !

If raymundoko is in Atlanta, he is probably upset about the traffic-jam that a presidential visit would cause. As far as I've seen when visiting Atlanta, there are NO big roads there in the suburbs, except for the freeways. Miles and miles of two - lane roads - one lane for ea direction. Most of the intersections don't even have left-turn-only lanes. It's the cloggiest city I've ever visited trafficwise, even without a prez. visit.
