I feel that at this point they will lie in order to keep everyone calm.

Not surprising given the ambulance that transported him in Dallas was apparently in service for 48 hours afterwards.

The ambulance is now quarantined by a big piece of yellow tape.

Damage control has been in effect for days now. There are conflicting stories and news releases now but they will soon get that sorted out.

I'm always astonished at the naive people that believe and quote anything coming out of the msm and govt. spokesmen as reliable information.

Country of origin: Liberia (check)
Reaction by CDC: Put on masks after the fact. (check)

Verdict: Bad Dr. Goodweather. Bad!

UPDATE


CDC officials have removed passengers from a plane that landed in Newark Saturday afternoon following a possible Ebola scare.
United flight 998 from Brussels landed at Newark Airport and has been met by Centers for Disease Control officials based in Newark after passengers on board, believed to be from Liberia, exhibited possible signs of Ebola.


Officials with the CDC removed two passengers from the plane. A man had been traveling with his daughter and both were removed by a CDC crew in full HAZMAT gear. Other passengers remain aboard.Too."

Of course its Ebola, from Liberia with vomiting. Now a whole plane is in quarantine.

This couldn't have come at a worse time imo , being flu season, this will easily overwhelm our regional medical personnel
1/8 to 1/4 i expect to quit or take leave if it gets to the following level by region
When and if cases reach upwards of 30-60 people within 30 days
This is when it is as real as it gets, I would advise avoiding populated areas for at least a month
Between 300-600 cases people will panic and store shelves will become empty, i wouldn't leave the neighborhood unprotected if at all.
1300,in-house lockdown or bug out.
At 3000-5000,Looting,Martial law and the complete breakdown of society
, notice the beginnings of it now
I truly hope this can be contained and all of this will be fiction.

this is amazing
watching the stories come day after day, flights full of people on an international trip cooped up in a plane for hours while someone is that sick already.. WHY IS ANYONE ALLOWED TO LEAVE THAT AFRICA AT THIS POINT!!! And the guy sitting next to Mr vomit.. I think he was clueless to the ramifications of what might be coming his way.

Oh, I imagine so.

The authorities could put a stop to all of this if they just cut-off flights in and out of Liberia. Why take the chance of this spreading globally?


We kind of have an important law called the constitution, that says the government cannot restrict your freedom to travel.

I guess individual airlines could not offer service from Liberia, but that would be totally up to them.

I live 15 minutes away also and I hope this gives our airline system a good kick in the pants.

Why are they tempting fate on this?
Shut down all traffic from affected areas unless strict quarentine guidelines are met. It seems a no brained to me and my area is not even the worst place this could escalate beyond control. India, Europe and Chins would be disasterous at least.

What is so f@#$ing hard about doing this one simple thing, Africa is a big island, keep it there untill this gets under control.

Somebody should take the Liberian man and drop him in front of the white house so Obama can see for himself what his stupid policies are doing to us the tax payers and voters in this nation.

Because obviously between golf and dinner parties for illegals he doesn't give crap about the real people in the nation.

That is true. We have the constitutional right to freedom of movement WITHIN the US. But I do believe the federal government can restrict entry in to the US for a variety of reasons. These reasons are defined in the Immigration and Nationality act...and disease is on the list.

I found this little nugget at the bottom of a NY Post article about the plane in Newark.


Better here than in Africa, noted Liberian native Joshua Brown, as he waited for friends at Gate 53. By 4 p.m., he was still waiting — and indication that passengers whose flights had originated in Liberia were being held longer. “I’m not worried for them,” Brown told The Post of his friends. ‘Because they are coming from Africa, and America is a better place to be” if you have Ebola, he noted. “All the people brought here are cured from Ebola, but there they die. America is a great country.”

If this is widely believed, we are going to see a lot of people coming here from Africa for treatment. Not good.

We cannot restrict travel of U.S. citizens...within and outside the U.S.
But we can and indeed have restricted travel of non-citizens; and have restricted travel of certain medical conditions, for the reasons of public health and safety.

We do restrict travel to Cuba from here, and do not accept travel from Cuba to here.

Yes we can AND WE BETTER DAM WELL DO IT YESTERDAY.

Yes, the government can restrict travel of US citizens when going to or coming from other nations. That's why you must have a passport.

The President per the Passport Act of 1928 can revoke or deny a passport to anyone at anytime for reasons of national security or foreign policy. The Immigration and Naturalization act of 1952 makes it illegal to enter or exit the United States without a passport. So in this case Obama would actually be well within his rights.

Dirty D, this is my thoughts as well. this is a good point to bring up.... maybe that is why Zmapp is no longer available, so not to promise anything to make ppl jump on the planes and go to America , i believe there are lot of people bailing out of Africa as we type.... more to come..... \

Good luck.

Just damn!

That is exactly what everyone has been saying would happen....It's a can of worms, for sure.

If Duncan lives, will it encourage more sick Liberians to run for it? If he dies, will there be claims of racism since the other Ebola patients, all white, have lived?

Screw everything about this.
