BRAINTREE, Mass. —A hazmat team was responding with the Department of Health to Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates in Braintree for a patient showing signs of illness Sunday.

The Patriot Ledger reported a man who recently traveled to West Africa is being isolated outside the center, according to fire department officials.

Wasn't Braintree the name of the town in The Stand?
Pretty sure it was.

Just checked the Wiki.
Braintree Texas.
Curious

As flu season develops, this is going to get intense.

Harvard Vanguard Medical Center in Braintree is being quarantined and a patient isolated outside the facility with a possible case of Ebola, officials said.

Seems a little more than a sneeze for them to do this, don't ya think?

I know.
It was just that the name was strange and rang an old bell in my head.
Not trying to derail or anything.

Yep Got'cha. I was just saying where it was - but that is very curious about The Stand! You are correct.

John Monahan of Fox 25 reports that the patient had recently traveled to Liberia, and came to the facility to refill a prescription. He then reportedly returned to his car before clinic staff ran out after him to prevent him from leaving.


Okay, so he returned to refill a prescription?

So...does that mean he had been treated there before and left with a prescription? But they only caught the Liberian connection the second time he visited?

WTH!? Need more info because it's sounding like a repeat of Dallas.

The article says that the person was isolated "outside" the hospital.
In my opinion, it would be wise to have small triage units outside the hospitals so that they can keep potentially infected persons from entering the hospitals and spreading the infection. If a person is suspected, they can then take them to a facility that can handle that type of contagion.
I know it sounds kind of drastic but it could save lives and money in the long run.

It may come to the point where we have plastic tent isolation units springing up outside of hospital ERs sometime soon.
soon... relative term.

Now you really have me thinking about The Stand and Braintree. This morning someone else commented on a post about Captain Trip and how this all started with a "trip" (from Africa) It would make for a nice conspiracy post for sure! It is all oddly related.

i got a buddy who lives in the braintree/weymouth area...goddamnit...

why in the hell are we still letting people from affected areas come back here, with no screening?

if they really wanna use our military over there, have the army take over a disused airfield, or something, and any citizens wanting to come back to the U.S. get sent there instead, for observation, and if necessary, treatment. they shouldn't be letting them come back here, to potentially infect who knows how many.....this is how epidemics start..

and for god's sake, we need to immediately cease ALL air, and sea traffic to and from africa, until this mess is sorted...

My husband suggested that may be what the FEMA camps and coffins are for.

They should do it now.
Once it gets loose into the general public, it will be too late.
Infected person goes into the hospital and they'll have to shut it down to decontaminate. If the worst happens and hospital personnel are infected or even suspected then they are quarantined and then there isn't enough staff to keep the hospital running. They have had to close the er in the Dallas case for that very reason.

What good will it do any of us if they can't determine Ebola immediately...two days? So if you show up and have flu, you have already been hanging out with possible Ebola infected people?

Of course that's better than letting in loose in hospitals I suppose.

Given the math (21 day incubation period from Mr. Duncan's most contagious point) this next week should be telling. Either others (his family in the apartment; the initial contacts at the hospital during er visit 1; etc) start overwhelming the hospitals/EMS of the Dallas area or the bullet has been dodged.

With the case of the Presbyterian Hospital nurse (who followed CDC protocols) I fear nothing dodged...the direct hit occurred and the "shock (contagion) waves" will just ripple out.

I still cannot fathom why CDC was not REQUIRING surgical booties (shoe covers!) as part of their contagion protocol!

Good point.
I guess the person would have to be displaying the more obvious symptoms. Or maybe people who just came over from West Africa.

If an Ebola infected person throws up in, and or sits and uses a public restroom leaving the seat and fixtures contaminated, how many people could that potentially transmit the infection to?

Truck stops, gas stations, airports etc...

Hospitals seem relatively safe compared to the risks from the above.
