Obama Tells Western African Nations You Can’t Get Ebola on a Bus (Video)

Obama in a video message with soothing talking points to Western African nations: First, Ebola is not spread through the air like the flu. You cannot get it from casual contact like sitting next to someone one a bus.

 

As White House Dossier’s Keith Koffler notes,  the Centers for Disease Control begs to differ.

According to a CDC guidance document, people at risk for exposure to Ebola may be subject to “controlled movement.” It states:

These individuals should not travel by commercial conveyances (e.g. airplane, ship, long-distance bus, or train). Local use of public transportation (e.g. taxi, bus) by asymptomatic individuals should be discussed with the public health authority. If travel is approved, the exposed person must have timely access to appropriate medical care if symptoms develop during travel. Approved long-distance travel should be by chartered flight or private vehicle; if local public transportation is used, the individual must be able to exit quickly.

The reason individuals who have been exposed to Ebola should not take public transportation is because, as Obama himself notes in his statement above, the disease is spread through bodily fluids like sweat, saliva or blood. That means if a person infected with the Ebola virus coughs or sneezes (or sweats) on you – you could become contaminated. What more the virus can live on surfaces for up to six days.

Via The Daily Mail:

Virus expert Charles L. Bailey, who in 1989 helped the American government tackle an outbreak of Ebola among rhesus monkeys being used for research, told the LA Times: ‘We know for a fact that the virus occurs in sputum and no one has ever done a study [disproving that] coughing or sneezing is a viable means of transmitting.

‘Unqualified assurances that Ebola is not spread through the air are “misleading”.’

Dr C J Peters, who has undertaken research into Ebola for America’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the paper: ‘We just don’t have the data to exclude it [becoming airborne].’

This is bad…the people of West Africa haven’t been conditioned to discount everything this shyster says like we have.

Good grief – I can’t believe the president told people in an Ebola-stricken countries that you can’t get the disease from the guy sitting next to you on the bus.

How can he say that?

What is he doing???

  1. Oboala,is handling this situation, like he handles every other major situation,with absolute and total incompetency, anything this man touches, he screws up royally.Ronald Reagan would have never, let things get this out of control, there would be no open borders, and this country would be secure from our enemies.Unfortunately the Manchurian candidate is in control for another two years, God help us, I just don’t know if we can survive this fool for two more years.

  3. I fished your first comment out of the spam bucket – sorry Jim. I know how frustrating that is.

    And I completely agree with everything you said. Sadly, unless the GOP starts showing some spine and things change dramatically, things are going to continue to go downhill.

    I hate to say it, but we may have passed the point of no return in 2012.
