This is in Braintree, MA.


When i saw your OP i thought it was Braintree Essex ENGLAND.

The U.S. has thousands of towns named after U.K. towns and cities. Would our U.S. cousins please state where the town is located to stop us Brits getting confused.

Sure thing.
The Town of Braintree is a suburban city in Norfolk County, Massachusetts, United States. The town of Braintree was incorporated in 1640 and named after the English town of Braintree.

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


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


Maybe this is all part of the plan?!?!

Suspected Ebola case taken from Braintree clinic under police escort
Update here




“Out of an abundance of caution we immediately notified authorities and the patient was securely removed from the building and put into an ambulance now headed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The building was closed briefly but has now re-opened. We are working closely with the Department of Public Health who will determine next steps,” said Dr. Ben Kruskal, chief of infectious disease for Harvard Vanguard.

The driver of the Brewster Ambulance transporting the patient shortly before 4 p.m. was seen wearing a hazmat suit and face mask. Beth Israel is planning to hold a press conference shortly




A second person was later brought out on a stretcher in a hazmat suit and placed in a second ambulance.

Bystander Susan Marini of Quincy said her husband Lareto — who is not the suspected Ebola case — came to Harvard Vanguard seeking treatment of a sore throat shortly before the emergency response began. He has since been allowed to leave, wearing a face mask.

“They just told him this is going to be a long process, be prepared,” said Marini, who’d run into a nearby Kmart to get him a drink, only to find the clinic swarmed by emergency responders when she returned.

“I was gone about 10 minutes,” Marini said, adding a police officer told her, “There’s an Ebola scare. Nobody can go in.”

A second person was later brough out on a stretcher in a hazmat suit???

Yep, that occurred to me as well.

"There are no cases of Ebola in Massachusetts. DPH has worked with hospitals over the past several months with possible cases of Ebola and they have all been quickly ruled out."

Roach did not say if the Braintree case has been ruled out as Ebola.

Kruskal said the office was temporarily closed, but is now re-opened.


I'm willing to bet those "possible cases - quickly ruled out" were not people that had recently traveled to Liberia.

And promptly reopening the clinic? How does that go along with "an abundance of caution"?

.....

By the way, in The Stand it was Arnette, TX ... I posted about that connection a few days ago. If we get cases in Vegas, Boulder, and Ogunquit, ME ...then I'm digging myself a hole and crawling in

Braintree was the next town over from Arnette. Stu Redman mentions it several times.

Now they are saying 2? From what I gather. The reported I just updated a couple post up ^ said "A second person was later brought out on a stretcher in a hazmat suit"

This is getting interesting...

I seriously hope this is another false alarm!

Scary.

If TRUE: when ebola has been in direct sunlight, it kills or deactivates it. IF trure, then a person could make a clear I.V line and have your blood open to the sun's rays and the blood fed back into your bloodstream, then it will kill the ebola. EBOLA CURE

We should all get used to these constant Ebola stories. The next year is going to go down as the year of the Ebola.


Look at how just a couple of possible cases are stretching the very fabric of this country and ask yourself what happens when they numbers continue to edge higher. We are heading into flu season and anyone showing symptoms will be treated as a possible Ebola case. This will stretch the health care so far it will be begin falling apart under the weight.



This will not be Obama care anymore it will be..........Ebola care.

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.

Just wondering what does 'outside' the hospital mean? A tent, a hastily made building or maybe a onsite satellite building that was re-purposed for this? Temperatures are dropping, winter is coming if a tent or something this virus has been known to live for long periods in cold temps.

The time is right for someone on death row to redeem themselves before they meet their maker.

Take the nurse from Texas and put her into a room.
Put 2 men on death row into the same room, separate them all by a wall with holes in it.
Put a fan in the ladies room.

We need to find out if this sucker is airborne.

Inflatable isolation tents? What about Army MASH units? Do they still have those?

They made him sit in his own SUV until the ambulance arrived, then they towed his SUV away later to an undisclosed location.

Geez...can you imagine that? I wonder at the emotions he was going through...

Also, if you live and work in that area and watched that? And then came home to listen to a replay of the CDC presser when Friedan insists that it's not airborne, is very manageable, etc ad nauseum...? *barf*
