CDC Chief Says 2nd Nurse With Ebola Should Not Have Flown

No, she shouldn’t have.  Yet she did.  No common sense there.

Cleared to fly by the CDC, but the family has to monitor themselves.  Oh, and stay away from campus.  And the places she went are closed.  And just as an extra precaution, lets close some schools too.

University officials were requesting that Ms. Vinson’s family remain off campus for the next 21 days, and monitor themselves for illness, as per the protocol for Ebola from the CDC.

Akron Councilwoman Tara Mosley-Samples said she is good friends with Ms. Vinson’s mother, Debra Berry, who she said works at Kent State.

Ms. Vinson had been returning home frequently in recent months to plan for her wedding, Ms. Mosley-Samples said, and her mother was especially happy about the upcoming wedding and talked about it all the time.

“She is such a good kid,” Ms. Mosley-Samples said, growing emotional. “She is also a very intelligent and responsible young lady. I have a hard time believing they told her not to travel. Otherwise she wouldn’t have gotten on that plane.”

Come on.  You care for Duncan, patient zero, and the next thing you do is get on a plane?  While you don’t feel well?  Go and possibly infect family members three states away?  Try on wedding dresses?

If I were the groom to be, I might have second thoughts.

Bridezilla anyone?

Ebola and Aerosol Generating Procedures

DropletNucleiTransferYes. And now if you get Ebola, CDC guidelines say to avoid aerosol generating procedures.

http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/infection-prevention-and-control-recommendations.html

Ie: no intubation, Iv’s, dialysis, suctioning of the airway, etc. Couple that with unprepared/hesitant/untrained/fearful staff, a lack of protective gear that would coax medical personnel to perform such procedures, and a large influx of these patients to any one site, and you could be left to lie there in agony and excrement without necessary procedures.

CDC director Frieden: Second case of Ebola in US result of ‘breach of protocol’

CDC Director, Dr. Thomas Frieden, speaks at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta    (Image/wmur.com)

Anybody else hear the constant coverage of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, other places in West Africa, and Texas, and Spain, etc., and wonder why the hell the Government is not doing more, or at least preparing to do more?

The answer is that they are incompetent, unprepared, ignorant, or, all of those.

The Raconteur Report, has it right.

As all of us have watched aghast, for over a week, as public officials have screwed up virtually every component of the arrival to our shores of Ebola….

And person after person knows in about 1 second what to do, but nobody in authority wants to talk about it, and the media cheerfully glosses over it.

And the solution is blazingly simple:

STOP UNKNOWINGLY FLYING INFECTED PEOPLE HERE, AND RISK IMPORTING MORE EBOLA.

Raconteur has been covering its thoughts on Ebola for a while.  And I fear all of what he says is entirely plausible.  Possible.  Likely.

Of course at this point, we have heard, “Hey, Ebola is not airborne…you can’t get it from airborne contact…”.  Is this direct enough for you?:

Or been in an unclean most any bathroom?

How about just touching the Ebola-carrier’s skin?  Mmm?  Not worried?

Sure, confine yourself in an enclosed any area  – airport terminal, airplane, bus – any public transportation – an elevator, public restrooms/bathrooms – with another who is sick, but all bets are off.

How about this – “Oh, we’ll just gear up and all is well, we’ll be protected.”  Tell that to Thomas Duncan’s Nurse in Dallas.  And everybody else she came in contact with.  And all of those they came in contact with.  And on and on.

The CDC itself acknowledges that there could be up to 1.4 million cases by January.  Right now, there are about 8000 cases in Africa alone.

I hope that Obama attends his briefings at least on this one.  Don’t think that will be enough though.

Update: 2nd Dallas medical provider flew on airliner on 13th of October. . Were they not all said to be under observation ?
Prepare for the worst, hope for the best, but understand, if this thing gets out of hand – and it could – you’re on your own.

And then claims that:

Let’s also not forget that the United States can be a very dangerous place itself, and that US foreign policy has helped turn some of these countries into the dangerous places they are now.

Oh really?  What policies specifically?  Which countries?  Do tell… .

I really don’t like this site, but, they have nice maps.  Maybe.

Not Ms. Khosla’s map:
