CDC: Ebola confirmed in Dallas patient

“There is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it,” said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control

“I have no doubt that we will control this case of Ebola, so that it does not spread widely in this country,” said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at a Tuesday afternoon news conference in Atlanta. “It is certainly possible that someone who has had contact with this patient could develop Ebola. But there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here.”

The Dallas Fire-Rescue crew that transported the Ebola patient on Sunday is now under quarantine. The city has activated its Emergency Operations Center on “Level 2: High Readiness” in response to Tuesday’s developments.

According to the CDC, the patient acquired the virus in West Africa, though they are not sure how he was infected. He was not involved in stopping the Ebola outbreak in Africa, where the disease has claimed more than 3,000 lives.

The patient traveled by commercial airline to visit family in the U.S., but Frieden said they will not release the flight number unless the CDC receives additional information that would mean those on the flight were at risk of infection. Frieden said based on the information they have, the patient would not have been at the stage of the virus in which he could transmit it to others at the time of the flight. SOURCE

Did any of you ever get a chance, or have the courage to watch the Stephen King horror, sci-fi movie, or read his novel called The Stand?

If you did there will be no explanation required, if you didn’t, and you want to see what could be the beginning of an apocalyptic global pandemic, read the book, watch the movie or maybe just tune in to the nightly news.

This seems to be a national issue the media is following closely. I wish they watched other things as closely.

    CDC doesn’t have a clue. Just read where a second person has come down with the disease in the Dallas area. Air traffic to and from the US from all ebola infected areas should be stopped immediately. Wonder how many of our troops Obama sent over to west Africa are going to end up being infected? The regime strikes again.

    Of course, mandatory quarantine no doubt is on the horizon. Just as the tin foil folks warned about.

      D. Duncan realized he had exposure to Ebola and knew he would get the best treatment in the U.S.A. SO CHOSE TO COME HERE SINCE WE HAVE WELCOMED ALL OTHER ILLEGALS AND OBAMA HAS TOLD EVERYONE OUR BORDERS ARE OPEN! We said all kinds of illnesses would come with them including the new illness the children are contracting. PRAY AND SEEK GOD AS OUR SALVATION!

        The beginning of Ebola tourism. Someone who knows he’s been exposed to Ebola yet is asymptomatic AT THE MOMENT gets on a plane, goes to a first world country knowing the chances are good he will get Ebola, all in hopes of better treatment and care than in Liberia or wherever. How do you stop that? By taking a temperature in the departure lounge?
        You cannot stop it short of closing the border.

    Another crisis, HO-HUM, nothing to get upset about. I just watched J. Stossel on the O Factor and he made Ebola sound like a bad cold. What is wrong with libertarians? Have they too caught progressive mind cancer?
