Ebola worst case example occurs in Mali, Imam traveled from Guinea with unrecognized Ebola symptoms, 256 identified contacts being monitored, US or other highly populated country incident could set off chain reaction

“Sooner or later someone in the US will come in contact with Ebola contagion & go undetected. They will then infect many others.”…Citizen Wells

“Barack Obama is endangering the children of the US and now our troops. Where is the outrage?”…Citizen Wells

“You can see that these doctors, who are highly trained people, got themselves infected,”
“So sending troops into an area, if they’re dealing one-on-one with a patient, they’re not going to be able to protect themselves very well. It’s not easy to [prevent transmission], because you get tired and you get careless and you make some simple mistakes. All it takes is one virus particle.”…Dr. Lee Hieb, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

 

 

This is what I have been concerned about.

All it takes is one person with Ebola whose symptoms are not recognized in time and travel to a populated area.

That one incident could set off a chain reaction that could potentially be unstoppable.

There are 2 extremes of reactions to this.

Panic and denial.

Much of what I observe is closer to denial.

From Reuters November 14, 2014.

“Mali tries to trace 343 contacts in second Ebola wave”

“Mali is trying to trace as many as 343 people linked to confirmed and probable Ebola victims in an effort to control its second Ebola outbreak, health officials said on Friday.

An initial batch of contacts linked to a 2-year-old from Guinea who died of Ebola last month were close to the end of their 21-day quarantine period when Mali confirmed a second, separate batch of cases this week.

There have been at least four more confirmed Ebola cases in this second episode, all linked to an imam who entered Mali from neighboring Guinea and died late last month with Ebola-like symptoms that were not recognized. Three of these have died so far.

Samba Sow, the head of Mali’s Ebola response, said on state television two more suspected cases were being tested.

Malian Health Ministry spokesman Marakatie Daou said a woman who had helped wash the imam’s body died on Thursday at the Gabriel Toure Hospital in Mali’s capital, Bamako.

Daou said an initial Ebola test result for the woman was positive, making her the fourth clinically confirmed Malian case, although further analysis would be carried out abroad.

Mali’s government said on Friday afternoon 256 contacts had been identified and would be monitored.

A spokeswoman for the World Health Organization said the number of contacts that needed monitoring had risen to 343 by Friday evening, underscoring the scale of the task health workers have in containing the second wave of cases.

Reuters journalists outside the Nenecarre mosque in Bamako’s Djikoroni Para neighborhood, where the imam’s body was washed, said four health workers in protective gear entered the mosque to disinfect it but no effort was made to stop people from entering for Friday prayers.”

    “A male patient, age unknown, was transported today to Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, and is being tested this evening for Ebola virus infection.

    The individual flew into Newark Liberty International Airport on Friday after traveling from Liberia through an unknown destination, then traveled to the Durham area on a commercial bus, according Aldona Wos, MD, secretary of the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

    On Saturday, the individual was picked up by a relative and taken to the family’s home in Person County, north of Durham. After spiking a fever this morning, temperature unknown, the individual was transported to Duke Hospital and is currently isolated in a contained unit designated previous during training as the site for treatment of a potential Ebola patient.”

  2. Washington Post Oct 24.

    “The real worry isn’t Ebola in New York. It’s Ebola in Mali.

    Despite the panic over a doctor with Ebola in New York City, a case half the world away may be more dangerous in the long run. On Thursday, Mali’s health minister confirmed that the country has its first confirmed Ebola case: A 2-year-old girl in the western Kayes region who had recently traveled to neighboring Guinea. The toddler is now reported to have died from the disease.

    While the diagnosis of Craig Spencer, a doctor who had treated Ebola patients in Guinea, dominated headlines in the U.S., the fight against Ebola in West Africa is already stretched, and opening another front in Mali could be a big problem. “On a global scale, this case in Mali is a much more strategic advantage that the virus got,” Amesh A. Adalja of the Infectious Diseases Society of America said in an interview.”

    “Ebola fears spread faster than the virus”

    Oh really???

  4. My take on the midterm elections:

    Democrats took an early lead in the midterm elections, but once the Republicans got off work, that early lead faded fast

  5. CW…..
    Now all we need is fore a bunch of ISIS goatherders to contract ebola. Might slow em down a little.

  6. OT but IMPORTANT!
    AND NOW……
    Wal Mart employees, will be staging protests at selected stores over Black Friday to push for HIGHER WAGES even though they ALREADY earn an average of $12.92.per hour. I have read that they are asking for a min of $15.00 perhr. It appears that it is time for WalMart to take the company OFF SHORE to Ireland,then open new stores all over the world, after closing their US stores. Let the US employees have a PERMANENT VACATIONS…….WITHOUT PAY. McDonalds needs to do the same. Corporate headquarters to Ireland. It is only a matter of time until the employees of both companies will be PROTESTING for $25.00 per hr……..hell maybe even $50.00 per hr. Should anything even remotely like that happen to either, Walmart,and McDonalds both would be finished. and about a million gluttons will receive permanent vacations. Sadly Americans STILL HAVN’T gotten the message of the times at hand. The unions,AND LIBERALS have only one frame of thought….MORE,MORE,MORE. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN IF IT TAKES THE LIFE OF THE GOLDEN GOOSE. THE UNION RADICAL GOONS THINK THEY SHOULD BE PAID THE SAME AMOUNT AS THE COMPANY CEOs.

  7. We need to keep in mind that the largest percentage of Walmart employees are UNSKILLED labor.

  10. cabbyaz,

    Do Muslims and the Ebola disease have something in common? Both are spreading their tentacles around the world.

    Following post appears not to be a hoax.
    http://www.barenakedislam.com/2014/09/26/in-a-fit-of-rage-obama-snaps-at-u-s-military-brass-dont-you-dare-try-and-pa 9/26/14

    In a fit of rage, Obama snaps

    In a fit of rage, Obama snaps at U.S. military brass: “Don’t you dare try and paint all of Islam with the same brush”
    Showing his Muslim stripes, Obama threw a hissy fit and stomped out of a Pentagon meeting about the bombing campaign against ISIS over remarks allegedly tying the Islamic State (ISIS) to Islam.

    His tantrum reportedly took place in the afternoon of last week just prior to the president’s departure to Camp David. It was an informal briefing on the expanded bombing campaigns to take place in both Syria and Iraq. Halfway through the already very brief briefing, President Obama stood up clearly agitated, and walked out of the room.

    The casually dressed Obama returned to the briefing moments later with a senior adviser alongside him, though his mood continued to indicate he was still very upset.
    The senior adviser made a couple pointed remarks to the Pentagon representatives, reminded them the president had already had a very busy day, and then both she and the president once again left the room.

    Within seconds, Barack Obama returned again to the just concluded briefing, pointing at the still seated Pentagon staff and indicating how “inappropriate” it was to “try and paint all of Islam with the same brush.” The president repeated similar remarks, his mood going from agitation to outrage. His voice carried to several other West Wing offices.

    The senior adviser, who did not originally return with the president into the briefing, suddenly re-appeared
    alongside him, as well as the president’s personal aide. She was smiling, and telling everyone “we’re done here” which she repeated several times and then led the president back out into the hallway.

    CONCERN ABOUT ISLAM ??

    John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam[denied] while stationed in Saudi Arabia or at least is a true, confirmed supporter of Islam and an expressed anti-Christian .

    Obama’s top advisor, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.

    Hillary Clinton’s top advisor, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are involved in the now
    outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim.

    Homeland Security Advisor, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.

    Obama advisor and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

    Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim.

    Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim.

    And last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.

    It’s questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he was sworn in. He didn’t repeat the oath properly to defend our nation and our Constitution.

    Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again in private?

    CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible.

    Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Quran.

    Congresswoman Michele Bachman was vilified and almost tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government.

    Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East.

    The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!.

    Where are our politicians and citizens who ignore all this? Wake up America !!

    Please get this out to the younger generation—-I think most of us “old” folks smelled a rat 6 years ago.

  11. Keep in mind that during the formative years, age seven to ten, while our school children were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, BARRY SOETORO was in Indonesia responding to the Islamic call to prayer. Patriotism was not instilled in his heart as a child, like our children, but instead he was instructed on devotion only to Allah. This could explain why Barack Obama doesn’t seem to have any loyalty to this country or our Constitution.
