This is not generally what this site is about. I’m sorry if what I am about to say seems less credible, but I have someone close that works for the state health department here in Maryland, and yesterday they had a meeting concerning the Ebola crisis. No media was allowed, and for what I’m going to assume was because any media understanding of how inept this is being handled.
The first and biggest thing that was covered were emails that were found by an independent researcher finding that the Ebola strain we are now facing is now airbourne. This means that if people have it, then by their very breathing, they can be spreading it to everyone around them. Generally when something this dangerous is that contagious, then quarentines start to run rampant, because a whole fuck load of people could die. The reason that we know that is because of the nurse that was infected in Dallas, because she was wearing a surgical mask. The current magic bullet theory is that what disrobing, she somehow digested some infected fluids. Bullshit.
The next big thing is that Maryland has no money for protective suits for state workers. So in a meeting designed to instruct the very people who would be the first responders. Now imagine that you are one of these people, that is working in the medical field in a state where they are treating many of the stricken, and you find out that the CDC is not adequately giving out information (airbourne) to contain this virus, and that you will then be asked to be in a closed room to treat the infected without protective equipment, all but ensuring that you will also become infected. That is like asking AIDS doctors to administer the cure with their dick without the use of a condom.
To further underlind the incompetency of the CDC, they actually issued a statement during the conference, to trained medical professionals no less, stating that the only people at risk of having Ebola were those that originated from West Africa or people who had traveled there. This of course is a fantasy that went out the window the moment that people here started to become infected or that Dallas nurse boarded an airplane. What makes it even more upsetting is that if these idiots actually believed their own nonsense, then why is air travel from the only place where you can get such a deadly communicable disease still allowed access into our country.
The CDC even went so far as to say that the reason that this is being allowed to spread is because of racism, because medical people have not been wanting to treat anyone from west Africa, even after being told by the CDC that only people from there were carriers, despite not having the ability to protect themselves in the process. Again, another major Obama blunder that will end up killing lots of Americans and it is all because we are racists.
