CDC: U.S. Health Worker with Ebola Should Not Have Flown on Commercial Jet

Josh Levs and Holly Yan, CNN, October 15, 2014

The second Dallas health care worker who was found to have the Ebola virus should not have boarded a commercial jet Monday, health officials say.

Because she had helped care for Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, and because another health worker who cared for Duncan had been diagnosed with Ebola, the worker was not allowed to travel on a commercial plane with other people, said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The worker had a temperature of 99.5 Fahrenheit (37.5 Celsius) before she boarded her flight, he added.

Health care workers who had been exposed to Duncan were undergoing self-monitoring. They were allowed to travel but not on a commercial plane with other people, Frieden said.

Moving forward, the CDC will ensure that no one else in such a situation travels outside of a closed environment, he said.

The worker is Amber Vinson, 29, a nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. She was confirmed to have Ebola overnight.

Now, she will be transferred from the Dallas hospital to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, which has successfully treated two other patients. It is now treating a third: a male health care worker who was infected in Sierra Leone.

Both Dallas health workers had “extensive contact” with Duncan on September 28-30, when he had “extensive production of body fluids” such as vomit and diarrhea, Frieden told reporters in a conference call.

The risk of exposure to the passengers who were on the plane with Vinson is low, since she did not yet have symptoms, health officials said Wednesday. The Ebola virus is not contagious before symptoms set in.

Still, the CDC wants to interview all 132 passengers who were on the plane with her.

Vinson, who lives alone, is in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

The news that she contracted Ebola cast further doubt on the hospital’s ability to handle the virus and protect employees.

Seventy-five health care workers in Dallas are being monitored for any Ebola symptoms, Varga said.

Separately, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who is overseeing the response efforts, said 48 other people in the community still are being monitored after having contact with Duncan, who was Dallas’ first Ebola patient. Those 48 are asymptomatic, and Sunday will mark the end of the window in which they could get sick.

An official close to the situation says that in hindsight, Duncan should have been transferred immediately to either Emory University Hospital in Atlanta or Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Those hospitals are among only four in the country that have biocontainment units and have been preparing for years to treat a highly infectious disease like Ebola.

Also Tuesday, National Nurses United made troubling allegations about the hospital, claiming “guidelines were constantly changing” and “there were no protocols” about how to deal with the deadly virus.

“The protocols that should have been in place in Dallas were not in place, and that those protocols are not in place anywhere in the United States as far as we can tell,” NNU Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro said. “We’re deeply alarmed.”

        Give it a rest. This hospital was not equipped to deal with Ebola…period. I imagine that you picture a scenario whereas this lady was issued a hazmat suit with an external air supply, and refused to use it. Ignorant. She was intelligent enough to call the CDC before getting on an airplane, and was told that it was alright. Dallas hospital officials–I would like to know how many of them are black?–told these nurses that wrapping cloth bandages around their necks would protect them from Ebola.

        I may not be the world’s biggest fan of blacks, but I can say one thing about them. When I was put into hospital because of heart shutdown caused by a virus, the black nurses were professional and kind. And empathetic. And professional, did I say that? They followed the rules to a “t.” Maybe they did not understand why the rules must be followed, but they did so anyhow. And did I say that they treated me with the utmost respect and kindness? Maybe this lady isn’t the smartest person on earth, but to put a nurse into an environment that she was put into–and then to blame the episode on her–is cruel and vicious.

        • SoulInvictus

          “This hospital was not equipped to deal with Ebola…”

          This is the key point. It is not, and never has been, the default CDC protocol to A. bring Ebola victims in country, B. to then treat them inside facilities in no way prepared to contain it.
          (And I’d add “C” to continue allowing flights from outbreak countries.)

          This is equivalent to finding an enemies leaky WMD, then bringing it to your local National Guard armory or police station to tinker with it.
          If it had been an emergency case, and temporary until movement to a proper containment facility was doable, then you could write it off as carelessness or ineptitude at worst. But the government has repeated this pattern with every case so far, so it is a transparently intentional mishandling of one of the deadliest diseases ever to hit mankind…
          Connect your own dots from there.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          I’m not referring specifically to the initial cases: I am making reference to ABSOLUTELY every endeavor they have ever undertaken since we made the mistake of setting them free to become the morons, drug-dealers, pimps, whores and chicken thieves they currently are…

        • none of your business

          I agree. They needed those TVEK suits with built in shoes and 3 sets of gloves going all the way up the forearm at least. For the flight back she checked with the CDC 3 times and all 3 times was told sure, get on the plane.
          I believe they are trying to blame it on human error. Human errors can be committed in almost all medical procedures without ill effects but ebola is different.
          It is the fault of Duncan for coming into this country after he helped carry a woman dying of ebola to a car and the feds for not forbidding entrance into this country by people from infected countries. African countries adjacent to the infected countries have closed their borders, but we can’t because Africans are black.
          If ebola were rampant in a White country like Bulgaria we would have forbidden arrivals from Bulgaria weeks ago.

    • Stan D Mute

      The nurses’ union published a statement describing the complete chaos in that hospital with 70+ workers handling Duncan and then moving straight on to other patients, complete lack of proper protective gear, massive piles of contaminated gear reaching the ceiling, etc. Reading that statement, it’s almost as if transmission was the goal..

      • Ron Cheaters

        I hate conspiracy nuts.. but this is soo incompetent it has to be planned. Then when I think if 2/3rd’s of the population of any nation was wiped out. That would be a success. I mean, war is taking too long to get the same results… Imagine the wealth that could be assumed if 2/3rd’s of the population of anywhere was wiped out…

        Of course, I come to my senses, and realise we’re up against some pretty incompetent people….
        … but are they.

        • Who Me?

          Yeah, tin-foil hat people are annoying, but usually they are stupid. This smacks of more than stupidity–maybe somebody orchestrating chaos?

        • 1stworlder

          If it was just that they were following an incompetents playbook they would screw things up in our favor from time to time. Consistency is not a trait associated with incompetence, however putting non-Asian minorities on a project is a sure way to see it fail like the failed Canadian gun registry done by the same company as Obolacare

    • dd121

      That’s at least what they want us to believe at the moment. If that turns out to be an indefensible lie, they’ll change the story

    • 1stworlder

      Affirmative action hires are the weakest point in infection control

    • none of your business

      The gear they were issued did not cover their necks and forearms.. They were not issued shoe covers. They were not told to use 3 sets of gloves one over the other and not told to wash their hands and forearms in a bleach solution. They used the flimsy gowns used for surgery.
      CDC and the media want to blame the nurses for not using protective gear properly. It is very difficult to get out of protective gear without touching it with one’s hands.

        She bought the tickets long before Duncan was admitted. it is not easy to plan an Ohio wedding when the bride is in Texas. She has gone back and forth several times. No one is lying about the wedding. This trip was to select and buy the bridesmaids dresses.

    It will be interesting to see if Pham survives but Vinson does not. I’ve read in several places the theory that blacks die in disproportionate numbers.

    • Stan D Mute

      This isn’t over yet. Not by a stretch. The seemingly deliberate incompetence in that hospital as described in the nurses Union statement is mind boggling. If true, we will see quite a few more infected nurses, orderlies, and doctors.

      • 1stworlder

        A worker reported for looking at internet porn, picked up a porn virus months later taking out almost all the computers at Harrisburg Hospital & still was not fired. Non Asian minorities are almost unfireable

      • It is only seemingly deliberate until you see the racial make up of the people working on this at the hospital. Anything from Affirmative Action black doctors to big fat black nurses were involved. If it went any better then it did it would have been a miracle.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      One can only hope…

    • Ron Cheaters

      I read in the Canadian news that Pham is getting blood transfusions from Ebola survivors, based on the precept that Ebola is like chicken-pox once you have it, you can’t get it again.

      • CLB11267

        I think that’s fairly settled. If you survive Ebola, your body has created anti-bodies which fight it and those can be passed on to new patients through blood transfusions.

      Same for AIDS. Apparently AIDS likes blacks better than whites, must be that African origin. Also, blacks are far less likely to follow drug protocols. Easier to blame old Whitey than take pills.

      Check out the piece on ebola written by Fulford over at VDare. He expands on my thesis of a few months ago posted here. Again, the negro is the disease vector. And no, expecting somebody with an IQ of 85 and below to comprehend microbiology enough to avoid transmission of this virus is fantastical. “Watchoo means dog? Germs? What do germs beez? Less go ova my baby momma sista crib where Shitavious be stayin at. He beez all sicken sheet so weez can gets his dope.” And of course this will be the white man’s fault. How do negroes react when really angry with white folks? They’ll mass together, assault cops and firefighters, maybe destroy a few “ambalamps” and ensure the whole mob is infected. They’ll burn down the hospitals that represent their only chance for survival because “Rayciss”.

        Geraldo (on Fox) is already fanning the flames by saying Duncan didn’t receive good enough treatment because he was black.

  • 1gravity

    A fair question: It is clear that Nurse Vinson should not have flown commercial. Did she know, or had she been advised, that this rule was in effect? So much of what medical professionals tell the public uses verbs like “may,” or “might,” that one wonders if any M.D. is capable of a simple declarative sentence. One wonders if what Nurse Vinson was actually told was phrased as some kind of mealy mouthed suggestion, which Nurse Vinson then understood to permit the relatively short commercial flight she took. BTW, why isn’t a low grade fever like 99.5 degrees a symptom of Ebola?

    • Guest

      Sorry, grav, but somebody with a master’s in nursing should have known better.

      Assuming of course that she didn’t have one of those special M.AA. degrees.

      • SentryattheGate

        Nurse Vinson KNEW that her co-worker had Ebola from treating the same patient she treated! She KNEW she had a fever! Yet she put others at risk on the way to Ohio and back, especially her family, who she, no doubt, hugged and kissed! BTW, Obama bragged that he was brave, and unconcerned enough to hug and kiss the Dallas nurses! But I’ll bet they weren’t the ones who cared for that “noble” black man.

      • 1gravity

        My AA radar is second to none; and it’s on all the time. But, as the people in charge of responding to the threat of Ebola have been so rag tag in their decision making, why would not their advice to Nurse Vinson be incompetently handled as well? So, it is turning out that Nurse Vinson made several, not just one, call to the CDC asking specific instructions about whether she could fly, and was give the green light. While I am all in favor of nailing AA abuses in any and all places, Nurse Vinson’s situation is not one of them.

        • thegodsofeden

          Even if someone at the CDC had told me not to worry & “go ahead and
          travel”, just knowing that a fellow co-worker, with whom I had helped
          care for Mr. Duncan, was now hospitalized and quarantined with Ebola,
          would have made me think not once or twice, but three times about
          traveling anywhere. A wedding can wait. Now she may have caused untold
          persons to become unwitting carriers. This could get out of hand very
          quickly.

So they might pass a test after seeing the same question but not have the skills to asses the situation the question refers to.

    • thegodsofeden

      The CDC says that only a temp of 100.4 F or above is a cause for concern. It’s now coming out that she called and spoke with the “Criminal Democratic Caucus” aka the CDC, several times before traveling and told them she had a slight fever. She was told that her temp wasn’t high enough to worry about. The “CDC” it seems is now trying to cover it’s ass. They need a boot in it!

      • Stan D Mute

        If this is true, that some nitwit at CDC said, “you go girl” when common sense and best practices say to stay put for 21 days even without a low grade fever, I’ll bet dollars to donuts the CDC rep was an affirmative action genius. There is nothing whatsoever that can protect us from negro stupidity and impulsivity here. The only way to escape this is to stay as far as possible from negroes at this point.

      She asked a total of 4 times and every time was told by the geniuses at CDC that she could fly. Her degree is of course an affirmative action degree and a far more qualified White was denied nursing student admission so she could be given an affirmative action admission. but the CDC told her she could fly.

    Can’t have a First World society with Third World people. Just can’t.

    The other Ebola nurse was surnamed Phan. She is a Vietnamese Catholic schooled in nursing at a Christian college.

    That may be part of the larger plan, given that Christians are always lusting after thanatos. It fits with their eschatology and may increase membership and donations.

    Well, it was either this, or take a gun later for the predictable festivities. You know how hard it is to get a hall rental deposit back after a Vibrant Family Celebration gun battle?

    In any case, she should be jailed for attempted homicide and malicious disregard for the safety of everybody but herself. What a narcissist and sociopath…but that’s not surprising.

    Who is Vinson’s fiance/boyfriend? Did they have intimate contact?

      I do not care how many degrees she has, she should not be in the business of health care.

      She has enough edumucation to know that she at risk for infection and should NOT travel in a high density contact situation as an airplane.

        Good comment. For a long time they claimed the Spanish woman was a nurse which most people assume is an RN. She is actually a nurse’s aid.
        Vinson bought the plane tickets before Duncan was admitted and CDC told her 4 times she was OK to fly. it’s not her fault it is the fault of our country for letting Duncan and other ebola carriers in while even primitive African countries have closed their borders to possible ebola carriers.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    But, it’s OK for West Africans from Hot Zones to fly here.

    30 countries have travel bans or restrictions in place for this epidemic MOST of them in Africa…

    Thomas Eric Duncan should not have traveled either …. especially not into the USA.

    For that matter, Obama should not have traveled here from his home country.

    We would be far better off.

    A few more people flying around with Ebola and the entire airline industry is going to grind to a halt.

    Oct. 15, 2014, Reuters:

    U.S. airline stocks tumbled again on Wednesday on renewed fears of a drop-off in air travel spurred by reports that a second Texas nurse had contracted the deadly Ebola virus and traveled on a U.S. airline flight.

    And this:

    Hospital Cafeteria Abandoned…

    DALLAS, Texas — The cafeteria, where employees and patients at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital normally take a meal break, is looking more like a ghost town since the outbreak of Ebola. A cafeteria worker said their business had taken a major hit in the wake of Nina Pham’s becoming symptomatic after treating Thomas Eric Duncan while he was ill at this hospital.

    “She did not vomit. She was not bleeding,” Frieden said. “So the level of risk of people around her should be extremely low.”

    Everyone feeling relieved now?

            Oh, the American economy is still hanging on – by a thread. The FedGov needed a catalyst to put it over the edge and flying in Ebola by the planeload just might do it.

            If the number of infected people reaches 1.4 million by January 20, as the World Health Organization (WHO) predicts, the disease will be unstoppable – if it’s not already.

            Economic Collapse = food riots, lack of clean water, electric grid down, marauding gangs, hospital closures, bank closures, lack of medications, dead lying in the streets and worse.

      The flip side of this coin is when the Japanese and Koreans wear surgical masks when they think they are getting sick. Contrary to popular belief, they don’t do this out of fear of getting sick, but to keep from making others sick!

      • thegodsofeden

        Now it’s reported that surgical masks and face masks won’t do much to keep you healthy. It’s being suggested that health workers use filtered air equipment.

          Face masks are useless after about 30 to 60 minutes because the area around the mouth gets wet from your breath. Once wet, germs and viruses enter.

  • 4321realist

    “The risk of exposure to the passengers who were on the plane with Vinson is low, since she did not yet have symptoms, health officials said Wednesday. The Ebola virus is not contagious before symptoms set in.”

    That’s absolutely false. I think CNN got that from CDC Freiden.

    Experts agree that a virus once instilled in a host and begins to wildly replicate the person infected can pass it along to others.

    This guy Freiden CONTINUES to sound like a moron.

    He claimed also that you can give it to someone on a bus, but you can’t get it from someone on a bus. How much sense does that make?

    He also said you can’t ban flights from Ebola countries, because it would make the virus spread faster and would hinder the ability to contain it. He said a ban would not allow it to be contained at its source, and that it would be impossible to get care and aid into the country, too silly to see that flights would not be banned INTO the country but out of it. Also military and charter flights can move about freely.

    What an ignoramus.

    This man is either just plain stupid or he has some kind of mental disorder.

    Even children can see the stupidity of those statements.

    I think Obama and his minions think that if they ban incoming flights Obama’s amnesty might be prevented from occurring.

    I think that’s also why they’re playing down this entire affair. If he can’t order amnesty for illegals I think he’s going to be crushed, and if this Ebola thing gets worse even the GOP might grow a spine and tell him if he passes amnesty he’s as good as impeached.

    • 4321realist

      Too, I might mention that the prestigious Infectious Disease group at the university of Minnesota declared that it IS POSSIBLE for Ebola to be spread by sneezing and coughing, because it can enter the body through the lungs and that it is expected to mutate so that it will be a full-fledged airborne disease.

  • Pathfinder75 (formerly Shadow)

    Asserting that “Nurse” Vinson should never have boarded that airplane must certainly qualify as the understatement of the year.

    • Stan D Mute

      Actually, nurse Vinson is a member of the african cognitive elite. She’s definitely in the top 10% of african intelligence (yes – an oxymoron, but bear with me) and perhaps an african Mensan in the top 2% of negro genius. When it comes to the run of the mill average african or the below average african, they are unlikely to have the slightest comprehension of microscopic organisms that cause disease. These are the negroes who think that “when ma feets beez cold Ise gon gets sick.”

      Oh no, this will get much MUCH worse as it finds its way into the african ghettos and projects.

From my own personal observation, I saw more white women with black men than I did with white men or hispanic men. One would guess lots of white women would be with hispanic men but I never saw that.

        In the office I used to work at, the women would all have pictures of their spouses at their desk. A fairly high percentage of the affirmative action females were married to men of color, only a few of them black men, mostly other kinds of men of color, at least, judging from their family photos. This was in a town that was almost exclusively black and white. 80% white, 20% black.

    What is up with these black folk handling Ebola patients and then getting on airplanes?
    Why was this nurse not under observation? What do they think they are dealing with here?
    Ebola is not a case of the sniffles! We could be in some serious, deep excrement already and it pisses me off that they are not treating the quarantine of this deadly disease as the threat to national security that it truly is. The WHO is expecting 10k new cases in Africa per week by December and God knows how many next year. If it climbs to 100k new cases per week then you can bet civil society and medical facilities will break down. This has the potential to kill so many medical workers that few will be brave enough to show up for work – thus the fatality rate will climb to it’s natural level of 90%! Just the fear this pandemic will cause can immobilize and shut down society. Who will want to send their kids to school knowing a horrific death could be waiting for them on a railing or a door knob? Who will want to go to work once a coworker ends up looking like a dying bag of pus with blood pouring out of their eyes? Man, I wish I owned a cabin in the mountains or at least a boat I could live on in the event that this demonic plague unleashes hell on the crowded cities of mankind.
    Ebola refugees will likely grow as fast as the virus does and I don’t want to be in their path either.

      • meanqueen

        Unfortunately, a lot of “urban someones” have touched every Amazon product that ships out, so you still have to fear fomite transmission, and Ebola is just one virus that is transmitted that way.

        • Who Me?

          We have plenty of food, canned, dried and frozen, some of it home-grown. A person doesn’t “need” to buy clothing every week, or every month, and pretty much other than that, we don’t HAVE to buy anything for while. I think we could do very well for quite some time if we HAD to. I just wish, like everybody else, that we had some national leaders with some sense.

            Leave packages outside for three to four hours before taking inside. UPS puts boxes in plastic bags if anyone’s worried about rain or snow. Don’t remember if Fedex does that. USPS does not.

            Or, you can spray, not soak, boxes with a bleach solution before taking inside.

            We use ‘OdoBan’ containing a virucide (kills HIV and other viruses) around the house on hard surfaces. No bleach in ingredients. Doesn’t mention Ebola on the bottle. Used commercially and in schools and churches. At Sam’s or ordered on the internet.

  • Jim

    I have a different take on this from many of those commenting. Obama and the CDC will forever be blaming hospitals, nurses, protocols, airlines and airport personnel for the spread of ebola in the US…when it is, in fact, Obama and the CDC’s fault for not banning incoming air travel from the epidemic countries, or from the other countries that won’t ban air travel from epidemic countries.

    Those nurses didn’t try to get ebola, whatever there race is. It is NOT their fault. Obama and Friedan have been selling America a best case scenario and a “it can’t happen here” attitude, all while sending out a clarion alarm for Africa. A recipe for disaster. They didn’t – or wouldn’t – take into account the inevitable mistakes that were bound to be made along the way; mistakes that could lead to infection on a large scale in the US.

    And why wouldn’t they? It would “stigmatize” African travelers. I mean, Obama just can’t see himself using racial, ethnic or national profiling…even when it works.

    • thegodsofeden

      Agreed. It is Obama’s and the CDC’s fault. And it isn’t the nurses’ fault for contracting the disease. Still, nurse Vinson shouldn’t have gotten on the plane, especially with her past history of having taken care of Thomas Duncan and fellow nurse having come down with the disease. The Prez needs to resign or be impeached and Frieden needs to be indicted for incompetence.

      • Uncle Bob

        This nurse should be respected for risking her life to save another just as Duncan did – yet scolded for the utter stupidity of getting on a plane and going to a wedding after working in an Ebola ward. Did she not realize that she was risking the lives of countless people as well as her own family? She’s supposed to be an educated nurse and should have damned well known better than that! The CDC most certainly should have know better! Is this deliberate?

        • thegodsofeden

          It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if it is deliberate.

    Regardless of the politics of this situation, she called the CDC and got permission to fly. The real questions are more serious. Why have we not banned all travel from affected African nations to America? Why has not anybody in authority (Congress) put the hard questions to Obammy? Why do not the airlines police themselves on this national health disaster in the making and quit flying people from Africa? Do we all want to die?

      • HE2

        Agree, Hastings. Her priorities were typically black narcissism, just as patient zero, the Liberian Duncan .

        A wedding, a plane trip were deemed more important than an elevated temp
        of 37.4.º which surely must have registered with her as evidence of a
        possible prodromal state. And yes, 37.4 is an elevation, however mild.
        I would have known, so would most knowledgeable White clinicians who specialize in communicable diseases.

        This is what I mean when I say that blacks should not function in any medical capacity.
        Inattention to detail, subtle AND obvious.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      She put her own selfish needs ahead of the needs of others, which is a black trait.

    • My take on this question is that Amren has taken upon itself to highlight various instances of black misbehavior. Not that there is any lack of white/brown/yellow misbehavior – but the corporate-owned media goes out of its way to downplay black misbehavior, and to emphasize white misbehavior. Thus Amren acts as a counterbalance.

      It’s also true that blacks, as a group, do misbehave more. They tend to be more narcissistic. By pointing out such examples, Amren is helping to illustrate racial differences.

      • Jo

        Black misbehavior is prevalent in hospitals. As with my father in isolation to prevent him from getting an infection. Black LPN went in without a gown, mask, gloves, and shoe covers saying, “I’m too hot to wear a gown.” I threw her out and reported her.

    • 1stworlder

      A white nurse that stupid wouldn’t be able to keep her license.

  • hastings88

    Typical black nurse!! Only thinking of herself and too stupid to recognize the possibility of spreading the disease. She brought it to my hometown. Ebola Amber.

  • M&S

    The fault lies in leaving anything to chance. Every person who helps an Ebola sufferer, _especially_ someone in ‘close contact’ should agree to a state mandated quarantine for the full 21 days after exposure. No contact beyond virtual at all.

    You would run it in a threeway split: Gold takes the duty, as Blue goes in the bag, and White comes out of quarantine to go home on a 30:30:30 basis.

    We can transfer prisoners on special jets but we can’t move infected individuals to a specific double-seal, positive pressure (keeping the air forced IN to the inner ICU) sensorized (sniffing the air for microbes) environment with a dual redundant (spray down in the outer baggie, strip, heat/UV treat the inner baggie, strip shower and UV/H1 activators) housing unit for the staff and incineration of clothing _within the containment unit_. That means closed loop everything with disposal on-site of all waste materials.

    Yet failing to undertake these basic measures, these are the fools who won’t close down transportation from BFE because that might ’cause people to feel unwanted’.

    Unreal.

    I still say that our only hope in this is to quarantine ON SITE, push those doctors who are willing to do this incredibly dangerous work into a forward location and hope and pray that it doesn’t go Stage IV outbreak from there. You DO NOT bring a threatened animal or person into a clean group ‘just to see what happens’.

    It’s making work you don’t have to do to keep the healthy population separate while maximizing treatment of the sick.

    Hospitals are particularly vulnerable because of the large transient populations, their often weakened immune status and the virtual certainty that medical and housekeeping crews will self-infect and spread to others.

    Go to a hospital, on every floor ward there is a sign that says something along the lines of “Foam up and save lives.”

    Because the one group which is most likely to become carriers are the health care providers and _when not if_ that happens with a truly deadly enterovirus like this, you can create a viral creche` environment from which it becomes impossible to contain (by class or time line or location, because one hospital serves many metro areas) specific cases.

    Which is why it is essential to create ONE facility where ALL infected population go and ONLY those with the disease are treated by ONLY a resident medical group that are also in isolation.

    Can we do that here?

    Yes.

    Should we?

    No.

    And Ms Vinson is the reason why.

    If an infected person in an already ‘sick’ country gets loose, it may further the spread of the disease locally but it will not endanger the entire clean population. Especially if that country is already under lock down with meds and food going in but nobody coming out.

    I swear, if Obama gets ONE person killed who ‘didn’t get to volunteer’ for this exercise in pathological altruism, he should be impeached and tried for murder.

    They are violating some VERY BASIC containment regimes here for no other reason than that they are looking to spread a disease which doesn’t need to be.

  • Robbie Cheney

    Anyone who has been a patient in any hospital in any urban area knows these ‘establishments’ are little more than affirmative action employment plantations. I was a patient not too many years back and it was truly a bizarre experience. My insurance carrier refused to pay one bill stating it was a ‘duplication of services’. I wrote letters and made phone calls to no avail and the item has been in collections ever since. Looks like I’ll have to make them an offer to make it go away.

    • Who Me?

      I was in the hospital in 2007 (at the age of 51). When the bill came I found I had also been charged for “infant circumcision”. When I called them for some kind of explanation, I was told it was because my son had been circumcised there. I retorted that my son had been circumcised 26 years before, in a completely different city. After about 3 weeks of back and forth about this, they finally took the $450.00 charge off. (My insurance naturally wasn’t going to pay it!) I don’t have a Spanish name, and I wasn’t going to pay for some little beaner’s care. And you can bet that’s what they were trying to pull. It’s not that the $450 would have killed me, it was the principal of the thing.

    In general, along with having a trigger-fuse to get angry, blacks are selfish people. It’s all about ME, regardless of the consequences. You see it all the time on news stories when one of their kids gets in trouble or gets left on a school bus by accident…”that’s MY BABY,” etc. Saw it in a Ferguson protest video, “Get offa MY STREET.” Selfish people, really.

  • Who Me?

    Further news states that the nurse DID call the CDC and explain, and they cleared her to travel. Told her she could run along and do whatever she felt like. Infecting God knows how many other innocent people, wandering around with ebola. I think in this case, she is less to blame than the effed-up CDC.

  • meanqueen

    I’m surprised that this nurse didn’t know better than to travel AT ALL, fever or not, until 21 days after her last contact with the Ebola patient. But, apparently, she was not given any instructions on that, and when she did notify the CDC that she had a fever, they told her to go ahead and get on the flight. There will always be people, even nurses, who aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, but what’s more concerning is that the “experts” who are supposed to be looking out for us are so incompetent and dishonest. Friedan needs to be fired; Obama needs to be impeached.

    On the news this morning, about 150 coming to the U.S. EVERYDAY. We saw what occurred when one person came here with ebola. No one in this country should be subjected to this deadly virus to save anyone in Africa.

    Private volunteers should hire private carriers if they are so interested in helping Africans.

    I’m sick and tired of the United States always risking the lives of our people, mostly Whites, to save others.

    Pulling on our ‘guilt’ strings again; it’s honorable for Americans to die so that Africans can be saved. B.S.
