I live in Texas, but not in Dallas - here is when I'm bugging out: when someone comes down with ebola who had no known direct contact with ebola, or no known direct contact with someone who did have direct contact. In other words, when someone gets it who had absolutely no idea how they could have gotten it - that's when I will freak out.

I truly hope for everyone's sake that waiting until that point will not be too late.

CNN is asking A LOT of tough question about CDC right now...also saying we need a national point person to handle Ebola.

Ebola is not airborne?

From the babbling of the CDC speaker, now I am worried, they can't even speak without hesitation in their delivery to the people.

Frieden of the CDC needs to be fired for deliberate lying and spreading of misinformation.

They claim this new victim "didn't follow procedure" and there is no danger to anyone else, but they have gone to extreme lengths to decontaminate her car, apartment and contact everyone within a four block radius of where she lived.


Rawlings said officials have knocked on every door within a block of the apartment and have spoken with every person that came to the door. Reverse 911 calls have been made to residents within four blocks of the apartment complex and printed materials have been left at each door, he said.

A team has decontaminated and secured the vehicle the health care worker drove to the hospital. Rawlings said hazmat units will go into the worker's apartment and clean up the interior Sunday.

Of course. If he doesn't blame his victim ... everyone's gonna blame him for his stupid policies and personal beliefs.

Breach in protocol? Really, CDC? Nurse in Dallas has Ebola - She was wearing full protective gear.

But here's the thing...he's the luckiest unlucky guy because he got it early. He is getting undivided attention, care and concern.

If not contained, in a few months or so hospitals might be overwhelmed. Or the risk of exposure might be so huge, no one wants to risk being a care-giver. Or we might all be in lock down and can't get to a hospital.

I love the doom porn, but even I will tell you it has NOT gone airborne. The rates of infection would be 'with no doubt' obvious.

WHY is a JUDGE on the T.V. to quell our fears? WTF?


In Texas the top official in a county is the county judge. It is not a judge like sitting in a criminal trial. It is the top of the administration and would deal with emergencies.

What I learned from the Duncan case is, when they start repeating the patient is in serious but stable condition, that means they're dead. Death is a serious, stable condition.

This part of the CNN article freaks me out:



And now, the search begins for all the contacts whom the nurse came in contact with.
"We need a whole new crew of people to do contact tracing," said Elizabeth Cohen, CNN senior medical correspondent.
Because Ebola's incubation period can last up to 21 days, the health nurse's contacts will have to be monitored for three weeks.
The Texas health department said officials have interviewed the patient and are identifying any contacts or potential exposures.
"This is not an easy thing," Cohen said. "Keeping track of large numbers of people, taking their temperature twice a day, making sure they don't ... leave town, all of that is a lot of work.

cdc director said that respiratory intubation is a high risk procedure and it spreads contaminants onto safety material.
then he said youre at risk when you remove the gown/gloves, etc.

he said there is a risk of the contaminated glove touching the skin....

he does seem to stumble a lot when he talks.

i can see why people dont believe a word he says.

that is a real fear right there.
at some point if this gets worse healthcare workers are going to say F it and not go to work...
cant really blame them either.

Class IV pathogen controls do NOT allow for the removal of a glove which has not already been decontaminated.

Only Frieden would expect staff at a Class II facility to magically be experts in advanced pathogen controls.

The guy has proven he's an incompetent ... but Obama just lets him keep driving the train. Who was that woman who stepped down as the head of Health and Human Services again? Sibelius? One winner after another in this administration.

You mean another bureaucrat to add to the list of morons already handling ebola.

People I suggest that if you are in the vicinities of the Ebola out break in Dallas to take percussions, perhaps anti viral medications like those to treat influenza including the Tamiflu could be more valuable than many think, they are in the group of cocktail anti viral been use right now for ebola related symptoms, perhaps it can not cure the ebola but it could delay it until the trial vaccines are more available

I am planning to get some in case ebola starts to show up in my neck of the woods.

Better prepared than be sorry that I at least didn't try

And you tell us that Ebola has not gone airborne. Interesting I don't have the qualifications, nor the resources to tell anyone either way. Do you?

It's quite possible that Ebola will never go any further than these few cases, but the logical path and information, and facts that are now being presented to us, proves that Ebola is not behaving like the CDC have originally stated.

If blame is to be given, I blame our government for not banning flights to infected West African countries, with the exception of health and humanitarian aid workers.

still not sure how to post without replying. I just wanted to post this article, not sure if it has any other information than what's already been posted (or if it has already been posted). It claims that Ebola is found on the skin of infected patients, which I hadn't heard before.

Lo and behold, let remember all that Mr. Duncan before been tested positive for ebola came in direct contact with many of the health care workers in the hospital in the two visits he did, the nurse may not have breached protocol, but she may have been around when Mr. Duncan was just a regular patient showing upper respiratory symptom of infection.
