This is way too close to home for me. And I have family even closer, just a few miles actually. My wife works in a hospital about 45 minutes from Elgin and they have been all over this but no suspected cases yet. The word is that they expect to see them they just don't know when. That makes me very uncomfortable. We already know people who are calling off of work there believing it will be sooner rather than later.

Elgin, Illinois is a northern shythole. Next to Rockford, it is ties for the 2nd murder capital in the state (the first being Chicago).

If this cat does have Ebola, they are nicely strategically (TPTB) putting people in areas that are by major city hubs. Mostly rich or well to doers live going up from Lake County in Elgin. Spreading into Chicago via the Blue Line at Rosemont would be ideal.


Interesting. I don't live in Elgin, but I've lived close to it most of my life. There's a few "bad areas", but ask statistics I can find point to below average violent crime, and above average household income, home values, etc. I'm guessing if it really is 2nd in murders, that mostly has to do with it being among the largest towns in Illinois.

As far as cases being near city centers, that's where most of the international airports and travelers are.


I too have lived close to it before. Lived right there in Roselle. You can hit Elgin through the byway they never finished making into a highway and get up there in half hour from route 20. If you have ever driven through downtown Elgin and around the south side of it, it looks like a model for Detroit. When I use to teach up that way the gangs would come and shoot out on the Road! (Same thing in Grayslake too). It is not a safe place by any means. It's not a big town, I think Schamburg is bigger; it just happens to be the victim of closing of factories and industry leaving.

Its a town a state forgot.

Thanks for sharing.

However, influenza season is early this year. We've had patients positive for two different stains already, in September.

I wonder how long this person has been in the country and why the heck they keep letting them in.

I'm at a loss on that. My only guess is the PTB REALLY want an epidemic in the US. Wipe out a ton off people, crash the dollar, etc.

Two birds, one stone...


Don't forget the Metro Chicagoland area is having an early winter and its already looking to be a bad one this year. Colds and flu are definitely going to run rampant and with Chicago being Obammy's town I wonder will Chicago be the first to round people up of "respiratory problems". Considering Chicago has 8 months of winter and 4 months of summer, that is a DEFINITE possibility.

Is this year's vaccine going to be effective? I've declined the past 3 years even though I'm supposed to have one (auto-immune and copd). Every time I have it I get ill though.

I commute 18 miles to Elgin every day to work, and conduct insurance presentations there for the community. It's strange that none of the local Chicago news outlets (TV, Websites, etc.) have mentioned a possible Ebola case here in the metropolitan area.

Maybe I'll work from home next week, just to be on the safe side! Thanks for the heads-up. If what the OP reports is true, there's a cover-up taking place...probably spearheaded by the Feds.

From my understanding, the flu vaccine is actually usually effective, however, most "flu-like illnesses" people come down with are not from influenza.

So figure some high percentage of efficacy against the flu, but figure 90% of what people typically call "flu" isn't actually flu but some other virus or bacterial infection.

I'm surprised by now there hasn't been some mention in news, and a bit worried. It may be that we're at the point where there are starting to be so many potential cases (but are just "regular" illnesses) that there's no sense in reporting them all, but then you'd think it must be the media self-regulating or being told to keep a lid on it. Have "possible case" stories is MSM dried up everywhere in the past few days? Hmmm...

As far as the patient, as of this morning, nothing is confirmed good or bad, and no noteworthy change in condition.

Yikes, I live just 15 miles from that hospital, this is WAY too close for comfort. For the record, there has been no talk whatsoever about this locally, this is the first I've heard of it. I'll keep folks posted if I hear more...

I'm 22, and I work as a security officer in a hospital in PA. Last night was the first I have seen signs posted for those entering the ER to consider their travel habits to west Africa. It's honestly creepy. I don't think this will end well. I think many will die due to the lack of medication to treat it. Sure, many of the higher class people will get the medication due to their status, but the poor and lowly will perish. I honesty don't want to work in a hospital anymore.

I do feel tremendously sorry for those who are looking for refuge in the United States. It must have been awful for Duncan, to die basically alone, quarantined from his family. I understand that many will blame Duncan and others for putting people at risk. However, how would each of us feel if we were in their shoes? To know we are basically a ticking time bomb.

Hopefully, Ebola will die a painful death.

Yes, this is scary, but I do believe we need to take this time to prepare and help others when we can with this crisis. I am truly appalled on how this has been handled by the CDC with not keeping the virus contained.

But you can't cry over spilled milk and I do believe this is not the last victim that we will hear of. Right now I'm trying to focus on what can be done to protect my friends, family as well as what can I do for my neighborhood.

It's unfortunately obvious that the government is encouraging the spread of this virus so now it's up to us to help one another to get through this newly developing crisis.

I don't want to trust some of this either because I have a built in BS radar having spent a hell of a lot of time on GLP and I still pop in and out on this. But with all of this ebola doom? It's just driving me utterly mad. I just don't know what to do. You don't know whether to believe or disbelieve. It's just a waiting game. I thought I had ebola actually, I was puking and dizzy and nauseated for a couple of days. The vomiting gave me a sore throat and I was headachy and I nearly quarantined myself because these sites have made me so paranoid over the years.
I don't have ebola though but I did found out that I was pregnant though.

I am in North Aurora which is about 20 miles from that hospital. Not a peep out of any news organizations at all.

It's the cases that we will not hear about that worry the most, because you know, all it takes is one that gets past any net that they cast and doesn't get caught until too late.

 


That being said, until there is as link this should probably be in the gray area.

I know, I've been hearing a bunch of crap and I mean, crap on GLP and I can't tell what's true or not. It is driving me crazy and I'm ready to throw in the towel and hit the hills already. I don't know where we're going but all I know is that we have to get heck out of dodge.

I am also about 10 miles away from Elgin. God I hope this is just some BS. My Dad thinks the gov is not telling us the full extent of the situation. Personally I think it's fear mongering to distract us from Syria. But we're being lied to on a constant basis and I never know what to believe if anything.

No evidence available, and if course i won't provide my friend's name & contact info, so i have no problem with anyone not taking my information at face value.

That said, my main intent in this thread is to see how inside information may or may not line up with reported information. Unless, of course, it does turn out to be positive, then the intent is more to inform of whatever information I'm able to gather.

My hope is that whenever the results are back from CDC, we'll see a concurrent news story that the patient is negative. Then we can be glad it's not positive, and I can have the frustratingly elusive link to show I'm not male cattle fecesing :-)

This is 60 miles from me. Nothing on the news yet or anywhere else about this. I would fully expect the news to not cover this for panic reasons when it gets out of control. This is still the early stages though. So I would expect the news to report on it at this stage. Or other people that work at the hospital. It would be on twitter and facebook or something. Nurses and doctors talk. The only other source I have found was on ebolastrain.com. Its worded just like this one so I assume it was written by the OP. Or the OP copied it from there.

Either way I will keep my ear to the ground. I know plenty of nurses and doctors. Most of the females in my family are nurses. Ill see what they have to say about this. I am sure somewhere near Chicago will see Ebola eventually. I do not think it will be widespread but I am prepared in case it is.
