And this thing has now gone full retard.
Ebola coming here is "highly unlikely"? Fail.
Screening measures will keep infected persons out? Fail.
American medical care is well-prepared to handle it? Fail.
Ebola is "hard to catch"? Fail.
CDC-guideline full PPE will protect healthcare workers? Fail.
"Any hospital with infectious patients can treat Ebola patients"? Fail.
Dallas officials and the CDC are working tirelessly to stop any further spread? Fail.
And we STILL aren't going to shut down flights, and impose a 21-day quarantine on all persons coming here from affected countries?? FAIL.
At this point, the nurse who's now presumptive US Patient #2 was in full PPE while caring for Duncan on his second visit, after his 9/28 admission. Evidently self-isolation/monitoring is a concept no one is clear on, because she exposed additional contacts; the Dallas FD Hazmat unit decon'ed all the public spaces around her apartment complex and her car (which she was travelling around in). Someone else will go in and decon her apartment directly (which involves essentially throwing everything she owns into hundreds of barrels, to be incinerated. No word on who's picking up the tab for this trip, but if you pay taxes in Texas, presumably, that'll be you.)
And they've notified everyone in her neighborhood.
No telling what the sick call-off rate will be tomorrow at that hospital, but they've turned all ambulances away and closed their ER until further notice.
Which probably means it's presumptively contaminated too.
If your grannie was close-by, and having a heart attack later today, I hope the Duncan Ass-capades don't kill her too as collateral damage.
In case no one mentions it on the news, shutting down a 56-bed ER for a 968-bed acute care primary hospital in a major city is HUGE.
One more time:
This is just the beginning. And the officials and media have been lying to you every day in every way since this started.
Electing incompetent assclowns has consequences.
But if you like your Ebola, you can keep your Ebola.
So, hey, how 'bout that 3000-troop deployment to Liberia, to build too few treatment centers to matter, while risking infecting the troops, bringing the disease to entire units, ships, worldwide and stateside bases, and back to their families stateside, and then on to those local communities?
