Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

The history of these pandemics is fascinating. My wife's grandfather was a child prodigy and graduated from Harvard Medical School at only nineteen. He joined the US Army and served as a battlefield surgeon in France. He had been married a year before leaving for WWI and his wife gave birth to a son while he was in France. When the great Spanish Flu outbreak and eventual pandemic broke out he was notified that his infant son and wife were sick. As the war was winding down, he was allowed to return home to deal with his family and because doctors were in short supply stateside to deal with the flu. When he finally returned home, his wife was getting well, but his son was in dire condition and died shortly after his return. I was just talking about this story with my daughters and I realized that very very little is taught about the Spanish Flu Pandemic and just how many Americans and others died throughout the world. To this day, no one certain why the pandemic started, where the pandemic started, why the pandemic started or why it ended. I've heard there are only two remaining slide samples of the flu and both were taken and retained by the US Army during the flu outbreak. I've heard theories that the flu could have come from the soil on the battlefields, like Valley Fever here in the Los Angeles area. We have outbreaks when there is a large earthquake...it stirs up the spores in the dirt and dust and when folks inhale the spores then they can catch it. There's just dozens of oddball stuff like that, but the history is interesting.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

He intentionally LIED at least 2 or 3 times when questioned about his exposure to Ebola.

He did it intentionally and knew exactly what he was doing.

Well, the creep from Ebola-ville, Liberia did succeed in his mission of infecting someone in America with Ebola.

A health care worker in Dallas, Texas that was involved in his treatment has contracted his Ebola.

Expel ALL his family. Send them BACK to Ebola-ville, Liberia.

There has to be consequences.

Dr Piot P and his colleagues who went to see and investigate locals in Congo / Zaire who had an unknown disease - named after the Ebola river nearby - found Caucasian nuns and priests who had quarantined themselves in the monastery. They had treated the local diseased and got 2-3 weeks later the bleeding disease themself.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

When you have a country that's a meltingpot for all races and origins...you are also inviting their diseases and bacterias, viruses and everything else with them.

They should have contained the shit in Africa. Just like I've always said.

Re: Ebola in Dallas, Texas

Notice how the media attempt to portray the lying sociopathic Liberian that caused all this as some kind of 'Saint Ebola' suddenly...stopped.

He came here to infect others.

This he has done.

Two. So far.

I don't think he came to infect others on purpose. He was, more than likely hoping get treatment here, since the mortality rate in his own country was so bad.

Either way, he is to blame and we need to stop letting anyone from that area in for the time being. This checking for fever is a small step, but what happens if the fever decides to hit the person twenty minutes into a flight. It's not like there is a defining moment when it all happens.
