Description:
A patient has tested positive for Ebola in Liberia’s capital, officials said Friday, deflating hopes that the West African nation had beaten the disease after weeks with no new cases. Liberia has seen the most deaths in the West African Ebola outbreak, which has killed more than 10,000 people. But since it discharged its last case on March 5, it was counting down to being declared Ebola-free. Countries must wait 42 days from when the last patient tests negative before an outbreak is declared over. Now, a new patient has tested positive, said Dr. Francis Kateh, the acting head of the country’s Ebola Incident Management Team. A second test is generally done to confirm the diagnosis. Tolbert Nyenswah, who runs Liberia’s Ebola response, also said he had been told the test result was positive. The woman went to the emergency room of Monrovia’s Redemption Hospital on Thursday night, according to Elizabeth Hamann of the International Rescue Committee, which is helping the hospital safely reopen amid the outbreak. She was identified as a suspected Ebola case and transferred to the hospital’s transit unit, where she could be isolated while awaiting test results. She is now at a treatment center. In a worrying sign, it is not clear where the woman became infected. She doesn’t seem to be linked to any of the people on an Ebola contacts list, Kateh said. “We have to investigate where the person came from,” he said. “Did they travel out of the country?” An emergency meeting will be held Saturday to discuss the case. Although hopes were high that Liberia had beaten Ebola, officials knew that until two neighboring countries – Sierra Leone and Guinea – also beat the disease, Liberia would remain at risk.

Description:
A lab technician with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may have been exposed to the Ebola virus in an agency laboratory in Atlanta earlier this week. And up to a dozen other lab workers are being checked for possible exposure, CDC officials said late Wednesday afternoon.

The possible exposure occurred Monday when CDC scientists doing research on Ebola mistakenly transferred a sample of the potentially lethal virus to another CDC lab in the same building, the Washington Post reported. The sample, on a sealed plate, should not have been moved to the second, less secure laboratory, the CDC said in a statement. There is no risk to the public because the sample never left the building, CDC officials said.

The technician who handled the material has no symptoms of Ebola infection and will be monitored for 21 days, the incubation period for the disease. The other employees who entered the lab will be checked for possible exposure. So far, none of them seems to have been exposed to the virus, the agency said. “I am troubled by this incident in our Ebola research laboratory in Atlanta,” CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said in the statement. “We are monitoring the health of one technician who could possibly have been exposed and I have directed that there be a full review of every aspect of the incident and that CDC take all necessary measures.”

The error was discovered by laboratory scientists on Tuesday. The lab area had already been decontaminated and the sample material destroyed — as part of routine procedure — before the mistake was discovered. The lab was decontaminated for a second time and is now closed. The Ebola virus has been rampant in West Africa since the spring, with nearly 20,000 infections and almost 7,600 deaths, according to the World Health Organization.

This week’s incident is the latest in a string of handling mishaps by the CDC. Following a highly publicized incident last summer, federal health officials concluded that it was highly unlikely that any CDC lab workers in Atlanta were exposed to live anthrax during a safety mix-up. Initial reports had indicated that one of the CDC’s high-level biosafety labs was preparing anthrax samples for research in lower-level labs. The high-level lab did not adequately inactivate the samples before sending them to the other labs, which aren’t equipped to handle live anthrax samples. Workers at the lower-level labs, believing the samples were inactivated, weren’t wearing proper protective equipment while handling them, the agency said at the time.

The CDC is considered one of the world’s leading public health agencies. But, according to USA Today, agency labs have been repeatedly cited in private government audits for failing to properly secure bioterror agents, according to restricted government watchdog reports obtained by the newspaper earlier this year. CDC labs house some of the most deadly germs in the world, including Ebola, SARS, monkeypox and dangerous flu strains.

Sharyl Attkisson: CDC Is Tracking 1,400 Possible Ebola Cases in US Today


Sharyl Attkisson: CDC Is Tracking 1,400 Possible Ebola Cases in US Today (Video)
Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, December 21, 2014, 11:59 AM
http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/12/sharyl-attkisson-cdc-is-tracking-1400-possible-ebola-cases-in-us-today-video/

The left-leaning Politifact website came out with their “Lie of the Year” award this week. This year the liberal outfit announced the Ebola scare was the biggest lie of the year.

Of course, the Ebola scare was not a lie – Over 7,000 people have died from the disease and possibly many more. The WHO says the disease has a 70% mortality rate.

But facts rarely matter to leftist reporters with an agenda.

Today, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson responded to Politifact.

Attkisson noted that the media coverage of Ebola vanished after the White House appointed a far left hack with expertise in revolutionary politics as Ebola czar.

Attkisson told Howard Kurtz on Media Buzz that the CDC is hiding suspected cases from the American public.

Infectious disease experts remain very concerned about the disease… A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since the administration has appointed an Ebola czar. And I don’t think that’s any accident. That’s a strategy… I called CDC not long ago and said, “How many active cases are being monitored in the United States of Ebola?” And they said, “1,400.” And I said, “Where is that on your website, these updates?” And they said, “We’re not putting it on the web.” So I think there’s an effort to control the message and tamp it down. This is public information we have a right to and I think the media should not hype it but cover it.

Just in From the CDC: 35 U.S. hospitals designated as Ebola treatment centers


I just received an email from the CDC:

 

35 U.S. hospitals designated as Ebola treatment centers

CDC trains and assesses Ebola hospital readiness in collaborative effort

An increasing number of U.S. hospitals are now equipped to treat patients with Ebola, giving nationwide health system Ebola readiness efforts a boost. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state health officials have identified and designated 35 hospitals with Ebola treatment centers, with more expected in the coming weeks. State health officials collaborated directly with local health authorities and the hospital administration on this important decision.

“By the end of the year, there’s supposed to be 1.4 million people infected with Ebola and 62 percent of them dying, according to the CDC. That’s horrific. And there is no way we can keep Ebola [contained] in West Africa.”


Be sure to check out: http://www.ebolaready.com/

As many of you may know, the doctors, hospitals, healthcare workers, etc. have all been told that to give out Ebola information is a violation of Privacy, and they have been forbidden to tell us how many people have been/are being hospitalized with ebola, and the true ebola statistics. AlertsUSA, ThreatJournal, and EbolaReady are keeping everyone informed the best they can.

For the ill being flown into the US from West Africa, they show:
Latest Ebola Surveillance Statistics

Approximately 70% of incoming travelers from West Africa are headed to New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and Georgia. Each of these states have sizeable ethnic populations from the region. Beginning in late-October, the CDC, Dept. of Health and Human Services and State health departments began active monitoring of all arriving passangers from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea for a period of 21 days. The following are the most up to date figures, provided by each state:

NEW YORK – 357
PENNSYLVANIA – 135
VIRGINIA – 81
NEW JERSEY – NOT PUBLIC
MARYLAND – NOT PUBLIC

LAST UPDATED NOV.6, 2014

Don’t be stupid, there is an agenda bringing in all these ebola patients.

The implications of a possible Ebola outbreak in Mexico are extraordinary.

As reported within Threat Journal in October, 4-star Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, issued dire warnings about Ebola and the impact of an outbreak in the Caribbean or Central America:

“It will make the 68,000 unaccompanied minors look like a small problem.”

“If Ebola breaks out in Haiti or in Central America, I think it is literally ‘Katie bar the door’ in terms of the mass migration … into the United States.”

‘By the end of the year, there’s supposed to be 1.4 million people infected with Ebola and 62 percent of them dying, according to the CDC. That’s horrific. And there is no way we can keep Ebola [contained] in West Africa.”

“The nightmare scenario, I think, is right around the corner.”

While unspoken, General Kelly’s comments call to the forefront the dangerous trifecta combination of poor public health capabilities in Mexico, Central and S. America, the severely weakened U.S. border control situation and the growing number of individuals currently surging North in an attempt to take advantage of President Obama’s promised amnesty actions.

Given the tense political environment surrounding amnesty, it is highly unlikely that mainstream news organizations will touch reporting on this developing situation.

INTO THE HOT ZONE
How to stop Ebola amidst a plague of political correctness
ebola 250

“FOR GOD’S SAKE, GET A GRIP.” That was the New York Daily News’ recent front-page headline, giving voice to Americans’ total exasperation with both Barack Obama and CDC chief Dr. Tom Frieden after weeks of having to endure condescending, evasive and contradictory assurances that they were totally on top of the Ebola threat – when the truth was exactly the opposite.

During that period, a Liberian man who personally carried a dying Ebola victim was allowed to fly from West Africa into Dallas, where he interacted with dozens of people including school children, then fell deathly ill with Ebola. A nurse at the hospital, while following the CDC’s Ebola-care protocols, became infected, and a fellow nurse, after developing a fever – the No. 1 early-warning sign of the disease – phoned the CDC to ask if it was OK to fly on a commercial airliner and was told, yes, have a great flight. Then she fell ill with Ebola as well.

Meanwhile, the CDC has been changing its Ebola protocols every few days, Obama has steadfastly refused to halt the flow of travelers into the U.S. from the West African hot zone, and has ordered 4,000 U.S. military personal into the infected region to fight the virus. His State Department has proposed transporting Ebola victims from West Africa into the U.S. for treatment, and he has appointed as his “Ebola czar” a Democrat political operative with zero medical experience, but lots of experience in helping fleece taxpayers out of half a billion dollars in the Solyndra fraud.

Add it all up and the average American – regardless of political persuasion – believes virtually nothing the Obama administration, including the CDC, says about Ebola.

Description:
Twelve people are being monitored for Ebola symptoms in Illinois, the state’s Department of Public Health confirmed Monday. The cases are considered low-risk, Dr. Lamar Hasbrouck said at a public hearing, though two of the men are in voluntary quarantine after arriving at O’Hare International Airport Saturday from Liberia where they built quarantine centers for a Franciscan Works mission. Hasbrouck said all 12 have to monitor and report their symptoms but are allowed to leave their homes and go into non-crowded areas. They cannot take public transportation. The information was provided Monday to legislators during the first hearing where experts from Illinois health departments, hospitals, health centers and other public health entities gathered to give a state Ebola update. “We learned from what other states have done and not done so well,” Rep. Greg Harris said. Dr. Julie Morita of the Chicago Department of Public Health said the city has a system in place for monitoring cases. For the 12 being monitored, that means educating them on what symptoms to look out for and how to report them. Also, local health departments are aware of anyone arriving from three affected countries, Morita said, and will be monitored twice a day via phone, text and email. What’s happening in West Africa has prompted a closer look at state facilities that most people wouldn’t think about, including the only lab in Illinois that does Ebola testing. Tom Hughes of the Illinois Public Health Association toured the facility, which he said processes about two million specimens every year, and said the decades-old building has problems that aren’t acceptable. He pointed to eyewash stations that are no longer working and the inability to maintain temperatures, jeopardizing specimens and lab results. In January, Springfield legislators may have to vote on whether or not to build a new lab at a cost of over $100 million.
