Why the Heck Are We Bringing Ebola Patients Into the U.S.?

Are We Exposing Ourselves to a Black Swan Event?

There’s no cure for Ebola.

Ebola is deadly and contagious.  90% of those who catch it die quickly.

Normally, the extreme lethality of Ebola means that the virus quickly “burns itself out”.  Specifically, if a villager eats an infected fruit bat and comes down with Ebola, it quickly kills the villager and everyone around him … and then the spread stops because it can’t travel to the next village over.

In other words, extreme deadliness of Ebola normally insures that it doesn’t spread very far.

But – for the first time in history – it is now spreading worldwide. As Michael Snyder notes:

#1 As the chart below demonstrates, the spread of Ebola is starting to become exponential…

#2 This is already the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history by far.

#3 The head of the World Health Organization says that this outbreak “is moving faster than our efforts to control it“.

#4 The head of Doctors Without Borders says that this outbreak is “out of control“.

#5 So far, more than 100 health workers that were on the front lines fighting the virus have ended up contracting Ebola themselves.  This is happening despite the fact that they go to extraordinary lengths to keep from getting the disease.

***

As Paul Craig Roberts so aptly put it the other day, all it would take is “one cough, one sneeze, one drop of saliva, and the virus is loose“.


As Dr. Sanjay Gupta notes, there have been lapses in safety at the Centers for Disease Control and U.S. hospitals in treating infectious diseases.

So why is the U.S. flying in Ebola patients to be treated on U.S. soil?

Yes, I feel sorry for the American aid workers who were trying to do good in Africa by helping those infected with Ebola.  But the risk of losing containment of this beast is too high.

    this strain of ebola is also not as deadly as some. i’ve read the mortality rate is about 60%. may explain why it’s spreading more.

  • InSpectre_Clouseau

    The two doctors are undergoing unique treatments, one via blood transfusion from an individual who was exposed to Ebola but survived, the other an experimental serum. The NIH is fast developing an Ebola vaccine that will go into clinical trial in Sept 2014. So, all is not lost and no need to panic, yet.

    When in danger, when in doubt,
    run in circles, scream and shout

    • Carl_Herman

      When there’s danger, Dee spreads doubt.
      “Run from danger! Just bale-out!”

      But facts are real for all to see.
      Citizens engage, but not Dee!

      Whether plague or war, we cannot solve.
      Your choice: Dee’s path, or evolve!

      *Note to readers: Dee also insists we can’t define the two treaties that make war illegal, thereby citizens have no recourse to demand arrests or military to refuse unlawful orders. So, nothing to see here either, eh Dee?

      And: what’s up with the US government having a patent on the Ebola virus? http://www.intellihub.com/u-s-government-patent-ebola-virus-2009/

    A vaccine to create an immune response making this strain of ebola survivable would prove the most horrible biological weapon of mass destruction ever devised by man.

    The first producer would be able to reset human population back to levels not seen for centuries.

    I wish there was some democratic form of government that asked permission of the people before engaging in these Master Race plans. It didn’t happen with thermonuclear weapons and only the threat of counter use prevented numerous first strikes by the US.

    Location, location, location. If you care to speculate on CDC as high-value propaganda arm of medical/pharma cabal, connect some dots. The entire Atl metro area was shut down in January for almost a week due to politicians delayed announcement of impending snow/ice storm. Tens of thousands of motorists and school children were stranded. Mayor Kasim Reed ordered residents to “Shelter in Place”. Many dependent on govt for safety. From Wikipedia: “The Atlanta Combined Statistical area spans up to 39 counties in north Georgia and had an estimated population of 6.1 million people.[2] Atlanta is considered an “alpha(-) world city”.[3] It is the second largest metropolitan region in the Southeast behind South Florida.” Additionally, Huge International Airport. Many other coincidences observed by alt sites. However, Mayor Reed’s attendance at this year’s Bilderberg mtg is curiouser and curiouser.

    in the comments on this article at zero hedge gw asked about the executive order.
    this is a link to the new text:
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/07/31/executive-order-revised-list-quarantinable-communicable-diseases

    this is the old order (signed by dubya):
    http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Executive_Order_13295

    the new text:

    “Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza.”

    the previous version:

    Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), which is a disease associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, is transmitted from person to person predominantly by the aerosolized or droplet route, and, if spread in the population, would have severe public health consequences.

    as there is no ‘real’ or ‘medical’ or ‘scientific’ definition of ‘severe acute respiratory syndromes‘ this appears to give the ‘authorities’ the right to lock anyone up.

    for the purpose of specifying certain communicable diseases for regulations providing for the apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases

    These patients are American nationals! They deserve to be treated at home! Now share the serum!

  • Greglast

    I didn’t find John Stewart making fun of Ebola in good taste! Many are infected and many have died! This isn’t a big joke – for the people in Africa!

  • TheNsilo .

    This adds context to these events. Without this, this article can function as white supremacist propaganda.
