Ebola Comes to Texas, Nigerian “Visitor” Not Identified, Not Even the Flight, Why the Secrecy?

Ebola Comes to Texas, Nigerian “Visitor” Not Identified, Not Even the Flight, Why the Secrecy?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first case of Ebola that’s been diagnosed in the United States.

“An individual traveling from Liberia has been diagnosed with Ebola in the United States,” Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, said in a conference call Tuesday afternoon.

State and federal health officials announcing the confirmed case repeatedly stressed the difficulties of contracting Ebola, which can be spread through bodily fluids or infected animals but not through the air or by water.

This person who is infected left Liberia on Sept. 19 and arrived in the U.S. the following day. The person had no symptoms when they arrived, but began developing symptoms four days after arriving in the United States.

“The bottom line here is that I have no doubt that we will control this importation, or this case of Ebola, so that it does not spread widely in this country,” he said. “It is certainly possible that someone who had contact with this individual could develop Ebola in the coming weeks. But there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here.”  Read More: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/09/30/cdc-confirms-first-case-of-ebola-in-the-u-s/

 

There have been calls in America for many weeks that people from Ebola areas be quarantined for 21 days prior to coming to America.  If those calls had been listened to, it would have prevented this particular case.  The press conference that is going on, as this story is being written, included a question about which flight did “he” come here on from Liberia.   The government refused to say.  Why?  They know which flight it was.

For the record many other countries in Africa and Europe have banned all air flights from Ebola areas.

  1. In my lifetime the distrust of The People by the Government has continualy grown, starting for me with the Viet Nam era, then it seems every Government agency has become more and more secretive. More and more the Government pushes away community involvement when there is a problem. The local police really do not want the Citizens asking any questions “just bake your cupcakes and give us the money, and please go away.” So here We are again , the Citizen victims, stone walls that are stacked ever higher between Our Government and We The People. Our politicians one day present themselves as just good old Joe , hey brother I grew up here just like you , I am one of you, give me your vote and Government transparency will shine like the morning sun, NOT. The day after the vote, it is get lost little voter guy and by the way, the issues of government are just too complicated for you to understand, i have information i cannot disclose, so just go work your job , and don’t forget those taxes are due, by the way can you drop a $100 buck in my campaign committee coffers? Sure do appreciate your support , don’t feel that the Government can answer your question now, ongoing investigations you know. geeeeeez
