First Ever Ebola Case On US Soil As Patient Lands In Atlanta; CDC Urges Calm - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A plane carrying Dr. Kent Brantly, the American doctor who contracted Ebola while treating patients in West Africa, landed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia, at around 11am this morning - the first ever case of Ebola on US soil. He is being escorted to Emory Hospital under police escort. His colleague Nancy Writebol will arrive later on a separate flight as the planes are equipped to deal with one quarantined patient at a time. As ABC reports, both are listed in "serious but stable condition." The CDC's director explained the infected patients pose little risk to others, adding "these are American citizens. American citizens have a right of return. I certainly hope people’s fear doesn’t trump their compassion." What is perhaps raising that fear among Americans (and frankly the world after yesterday's WHO warning of "high risks of spread to other countries") is the fact that, as Reuters reports, more than 100 health workers fighting Ebola have contracted it themselves.

Live Feed of arrival...

 

 

 

 

As ABC reports, this is the first time the Emory Hospital unit will house patients who are truly infected with a dangerous disease.

Samaritan's Purse confirmed that Dr. Kent Brantly was the first American patient to be evacuated from Liberia aboard a private air ambulance. The flight landed about 11 a.m. Saturday.

 

 

Brantly and Nancy Writebol, an aid worker, will be treated at a specialized unit at Emory University in Atlanta.

 

Both Brantly and Writebol are listed in "serious but stable condition," according to Samaritan's Purse, the aid group Brantly for which worked. Writebol is expected to arrive in the U.S. early next week.

 

Brantly and Writebol worked at a hospital in Liberia. He's the first patient infected with Ebola to be on U.S. soil.

The NY Times explains the treatment...

“The reason we are bringing these patients back to our facility is because we feel they deserve to have the highest level of care offered for their treatment,” Dr. Bruce S. Ribner, an infectious disease specialist at Emory who will be involved in their care, said at a Friday afternoon news conference.

 

...

 

“We depend on the body’s defenses to control the virus,” he said. “We just have to keep the patient alive long enough in order for the body to control this infection.”

And precautions...

“From the time the air ambulance arrives in the metropolitan Atlanta area, up to and including being hospitalized at Emory University Hospital, we have taken every precaution that we know and that our colleagues at the C.D.C. know to ensure that there is no spread of this virus pathogen,” he said.

But fear remains...

The director of the disease centers, Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, agreed that the patients posed little risk to others. And he added: “These are American citizens. American citizens have a right of return. I certainly hope people’s fear doesn’t trump their compassion.”

And perhaps rightly so as Reuters reports up to 100 health workers have been infected while treating Ebola patients... As The American Dream's Michael Snyder notes, something is different this time...

This is the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history, and this particular strain appears to be spreading much more easily than others have.  So far, 1,323 people have been infected in the nations of Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.  Of those 1,323 victims, a whopping 729 of them have died.  But a number that is even more alarming was buried in the middle of a Reuters report on Friday.  According to Reuters, “more than 100 health workers” that have been fighting Ebola in Africa have contracted the virus themselves.  Considering the extraordinary measures that these health workers take to keep from getting the disease, that is quite chilling.  We are not just talking about one or two “accidents”.  We are talking about more than 100 of them getting sick.  If Ebola is spreading this easily among medical professionals in biohazard body suits that keep any air from touching the skin, what chance are the rest of us going to have if this virus gets out into the general population?

In case you are tempted to think that this could not be possible and that I am just exaggerating, here is the relevant part of the Reuters article that I was talking about…

More than 100 health workers have been infected by the viral disease, which has no known cure, including two American medics working for charity Samaritan’s Purse. More than half of those have died, among them Sierra Leone’s leading doctor in the fight against Ebola, Sheik Umar Khan, a national hero.

This has the potential to be the greatest health crisis of our lifetimes.

But don’t just take my word for it.  The following is what the head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, just told the press about the disease

“If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socio-economic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries.”

That certainly doesn’t sound good.

Remember, there is no vaccine for Ebola and there is no cure.

Most of the people that get it end up dying.

And right now even our most extreme containment procedures are failing to keep health workers from contracting the disease.

I put the following quote in an article the other day, but I think that it is worth repeating.  The health professionals that are on the front lines of the Ebola fight in Africa are going to extraordinary lengths to keep from getting the virus…

To minimise the risk of infection they have to wear thick rubber boots that come up to their knees, an impermeable body suit, gloves, a face mask, a hood and goggles to ensure no air at all can touch their skin.

 

Dr Spencer, 27, and her colleagues lose up to five litres of sweat during a shift treating victims and have to spend two hours rehydrating afterwards.

 

They are only allowed to work for between four and six weeks in the field because the conditions are so gruelling.

 

At their camp they go through multiple decontaminations which includes spraying chlorine on their shoes.

But those precautions are not working.

More than 100 of them have already gotten sick.

So why is this happening?

Nobody seems to know.

Like I said, something is different this time.

A top Liberian health official has already stated that this outbreak is “above the control of the national government” and that it could easily develop into a “global pandemic”.

It is absolutely imperative that this disease be contained until experts can figure out why it seems to be spreading so much more easily than before.

But instead, health officials are beginning to ship Ebola patients all over the planet.

In fact, two American health workers that have contracted Ebola are being shipped to a hospital in Atlanta

Two American medical missionaries diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia could be back in the USA next week for treatment at a special medical isolation unit at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital, the U.S. State Department said Friday.

The State Department did not name the two individuals, saying only that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was facilitating their transfer on a non-commercial flight and would “maintain strict isolation upon arrival in the United States.”

 

One is to arrive Monday in a small jet outfitted with a special, portable tent designed for transporting patients with highly infectious diseases. The second is to arrive a few days later, said doctors at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital, where they will be treated.

Could this potentially spread the virus to our shores?

I am sure that they are taking as many precautions as they can.

However, even if those patients do not spread the disease to this country, the reality of the matter is that it will always be just a plane ride away.  All it takes is for one person carrying the virus to get on one plane.

And if Ebola does start spreading in the United States, it could change life in this nation almost overnight.

We could very easily see forced quarantines and draconian restrictions on travel.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “This Is What Could Happen If Ebola Comes To The United States“.

*  *  *

Finally, since every crisis and tragedy has an opportunistic silver lining, and "can't be put to waste," those who prefer to see the Ebola epidemic as opening avenues of profitability are encouraged to read the following article on a Canadian company which just may be the next CYNK, especially if the Ebola crisis does indeed spread away from "only" Africa.

@ Elliptico

I suggest you get you get your facts straight (here) . and stop being a victim of gasy libtard activist propaganda.

 

“For the record, Reagan first mentioned AIDS, in response to a question at a press conference, on Sept. 17, 1985. On Feb. 5, 1986, he made a surprise visit to the Department of Health and Human Services where he said, “One of our highest public health priorities is going to be continuing to find a cure for AIDS.” He also announced that he’d tasked Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to prepare a major report on the disease. Contrary to the prevailing wisdom, Reagan dragged Koop into AIDS policy, not the other way around.”

“The administration increased AIDS funding requests from $8 million in 1982 to $26.5 million in 1983, which Congress bumped to $44 million, a number that doubled every year thereafter during Reagan’s presidency.”


Do a little research and you will find that Reagan did not want to focus attention on the issue like the maniac activists, but because of the smear campaigns he did a lot more than most will ever know.

AIDS was not even a national issue when he first took office.

I doubt that the drugs available today to suppress AIDS would have been developed quite so quickly were it not for the jump start he gave the research during most of his tenure.

The patients are connected to respirators that heat all exhalations over 200 F, killing all viruses?

Of course not, their breath contains saliva & mucus, which hold ebola, which is spread when they breathe. Airplanes recycle air during flight, so now those pumps are infected. Are they sterilized? Ha ha!!!

Dr. Eric R. Pianka http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Pianka

"Pianka's acceptance speech[13] for the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist Award from the Texas Academy of Science[14] resulted in a controversy in the popular press when Forrest Mims, vice-chair of the Academy's section on environmental science, claimed in theSociety for Amateur Scientists e-journal The Citizen Scientist that Pianka had "endorsed the elimination of 90 percent of the human population" through a disease such as an airborne strain of the Ebola virus.[15] Mims claimed that Pianka said the Earth would not survive unless its population was reduced by 90% suggesting that the planet would be "better off" if the human population were reduced and that a mutant strain of Ebola (which has up to a 90% mortality rate) would be the most efficient means."  

But it's not airborn, you say? 

"While many medical professionals labored to better treat and prevent outbreaks of Ebola, a team of Soviet scientists set out to turn the virus into a weapon. They initially encountered difficulties cultivating Ebola in the laboratory, enjoying more success with the development of Marburg hemorrhagic fever. By the early 1990s, however, they had solved the problem [source: ­Alibek]. While the virus normally spreads through physical contact with bodily secretions, researchers have observed it spread through the air under laboratory conditions."

They probably do.  The more amusing thing about facilities like this is the decon protocol, which is someting akin to filling an electric frying pay full of Lysol and letting it rip.  There are so many points where containment could fail, so it is scary to think that TPTB actually think they can fully appreciate the dangers to which they have exposed us.

One fact I don't think any MSM is reporting is the fact that ebola has become a sexually transmitted disease in Africa.   The virus is present in semen from the time infection.   In survivors of the disease the virus is still present 3 months after recovery.    Many of the first cases were tracable to a single prostitute.   One of the reasons for its rapid spread is polygamous marriage, widespread promiscuity and prostitution, and the peculiar African practice of "dry sex" (look it up if you dare).

If ebola gets loose in the gay community of the US and Europe it will make AIDS look like picnic.

There is no "Right of Return" for Americans.

 

Tell that to Americans turned away, directly after 9/11, when they temporarily closed the ports of entry.

 

There is no Rule of Law. They just make up the rules as they go aloing. Most are too asleep to know any better or care.

 

Are they going to isolate these people who are working with these patients?

Not only is there no recognized "right of return" in the USA (or Israel, or anywhere else). The Cocksucker-in-Chief and his AG have asserted in writing that they that have the right to drone and kill US citizens who they deem pose a threat to the United States without due process of law.

If the CDC Director is really this naive about the legal framework under which he is supposed to manage the CDC then Americans should be very afraid.

We quarentine animals that enter into the Country as they have the chance of carrying infectious disease.

 

If you showed any symptoms of infectious disease...EVEN WELL BEFORE 9/11...you were not allowed to fly in most cases.

 

This was REASONABLE.

 

And yet the US Government violates all protocols by flying these people in,

insists on flying these people in,

MOST LIKELY WITHOUT THEIR OWN PERSONAL CONSENT AS THEY ARE DELUSIONAL BECAUSE OF THE HIGH FEVER,

and then uses them as political pawns in order to demonstrate "COMPASSION"?

@Tall Tom:

There is no Right of Return. There has never been a Right of Return.

I was certain you were wrong about this. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights both require that a person be permitted to return to his own country. It seems you are correct, though. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was just a U.N. General Assembly resolution and is not legally binding in the U.S. Article 12 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights specifies the right of return, but the Senate ratified the treaty with the declaration that "the provisions of Article 1 through 27 of the Covenant are not self-executing," which means that the right of return specified in the treaty is unenforceable in court.

So yes, a person with ebola could legally be kept out of the U.S., citizen or not.

And politicians talking about compassion are never to be trusted.

The money from Monsanto is reportedly related to the company's developed of RNAi technology used in agriculture. The deal is valued at up to $86.2 million, according to the WSJ. (11)

The Doctor walked out of the ambulance and into Emory. If he can walk, he is aware of what he is doing by coming back here. 

http://www.ajc.com/videos/news/raw-video-dr-kent-brantly-walks-into-emor...

Note on the video that he was somehow wearing a moon suit. I am not sure how he flew from Africa to Atlanta suited up as I have heard they are too hot to wear for very long. It appears someone, somewhere along the way had to suit him up.

He was also transported in a Grady ambulance. Grady primarily serves Atlanta's indigent population-what could go wrong with that?

How sick can he be if he walked out of the ambulance? Anyone who is transported to a hospital via an ambulance always is secured to a cart and wheeled into the facility. The protocol is to protect the patient from any further harm due to falling, sudden of fainting, vomiting, bleeding, heart rhythm changes etc. this is making no sense at all.

Exactly! These people volunteered to go do this work. And you would think they knew the risk they were taking. IMHO, they waived their "right of return" when they volunteered.

And there is no other word but arrogance for these fuckers at the CDC to think they have it all under control... How many times has Mother Nature and fate proven arrogant mother fuckers dead fucking wrong? Just like all the engineers that built Fukishima.

Send forth the best ye breed—

Go send your sons to exile

To serve your captives' need

To wait in heavy harness

On fluttered folk and wild—

Your new-caught, sullen peoples,

Half devil and half child

 No one has mentioned the guidelines that are being implemented for workers that come into contact with these patients.  The article states that 100 health care workers have been infected in Africa despite extensive precautions to prevent it.  Will the people who come into contact here be held in quarantine past the longest known incubation period for this strain?  That would be in the neighborhood of 3 weeks of isolation after last exposure to these patients.  What gives them the right to bring such a virulent strain of an already deadly virus to the U.S. ?

Ebola isn't as airlike as say flu or the common cold, but it's still pretty bad.  Granted, this infection stil isn't to the point of "out-of-control" or "rapidly jumping from person to person" (although maybe that's just the incubation period and we're waiting for the next break-out).  Canadian health organizations do say eboal is in essentially every body fluid of a person, including saliva and mucus.  So that means, yes when a person coughs on you or sneezes, and you breathe it in, if they were infected, you have a good chance of being infected too.  Ebola CAN survive outside of a host from 2 days to up to even 10 days if the environment is very stable.  Be careful if there get to be confirmed origination cases on continents outside of Africa.

Time to stock up on Clomid, bitchez!

This ebola thing is giving me the creeps.

Look at the revered sports "stars". These people don't get muppet care, they get the best team of doctors money can buy, not CDC flops. If they go in for surgery on say, their knee, it's automatically assumed there will be some type of resistant infection that gets picked up in the operating room. And they assume right because there is almost always a bad infection. If they can't stop that why should we think they can stop ebola?

I'm no doctor, but after this happens over and over again it would seem logical to get a new operating room or something, but they just keep doing it. Unless the whole thing is a flase flag fake thing it's a bad idea transporting the virus all over the place.

The thing with treatment or a cure is, only those sick with Ebola need it (and in the case of a cure, only once, treatment can be milked)

But a vaccine!  OMG!  Dream come true!  Every one MUST get the vaccine, thats where the money is.

So if something like selenium or hydrogen dioxide/peroxide happens to be a cure/preventative treatment, don't expect Big Pharma to let you know about it.  Those are NON-PATENTABLE, and inexpensive.  No profit for Big Pharma, in other words.
