So – a doctor in NYC was diagnosed last night with Ebola.
Greta Van Susteren reviewed his itinerary at GretaWire:
He got back from West Africa last Friday and has been moving around the city and coming in contact with many since returning from West Africa. His temperature was taken at JFK when he returned per the Obama Administration new port entry rules. He passed. Now read on:
I realize it is difficult to protect the nation from ebola, but, at the very least, the American people should not be slicked into feeling safe from a procedure that is grossly inadequate.
If you watch ON THE RECORD at 7pm, you know I have more than once pointed out the obvious: the Obama Administration’s airport entry tests for people arriving from Africa is both ridiculous as inadequate and falsely lulls American people into feeling safe, that something is being done to protect them. At 5 airports, passengers’ temperatures are taken as an ebola test. Here is the obvious problem with this – assume this:
Day#1 – passenger gets ebola in West Africa
Day #5 (?) – gets on a plane from West Africa to USA and has NO SYMPTOMS. Passenger arrives at one of the 5 airports and gets temperature taken and TEMPERATURE IS NORMAL. Passenger continues journey into the United States.
Day 18? – passenger develops fever (symptom of ebola.) Passenger obviously within the 21 day incubation period. PASSENGER, NOW IN USA, HAS EBOLA and is CONTAGIOUS.
The day before he went to the hospital, Dr. Craig Spencer and his live-in girlfriend Morgan Dixon went out on the town – which included a subway ride to the BOWLING ALLY.
Via Charles C. Johnson of Got News, the hipster couple “exposed New Yorkers in two different boroughs to ebola during their night out on the town.”
They are both registered Democrats with a history of working in public health.
Both Spencer and Dixon are professional do gooders according to their LinkedIn and professional websites. Spencer boasts a degree from Columbia’s University Mailman School of Public Health, according to his since deleted LinkedIn page.
So why did health care professionals decide to go bowling just days after Spencer returned from Ebola-infected Guinea?
Doctors Without Borders had already announced nine deaths from Ebola and sixteen infections. Why didn’t Spencer take his sickness seriously?
I think the answer lies in the first five words of the above paragraph.
Drudge once again has linked to the disinformation-monger Alex Jones, who is claiming that Ebola patients are being “disappeared.”
But anyone who has been closely monitoring the news, has to be suspicious that the least transparent administration in our nation’s history is trying to cover up inconvenient Ebola news – not so much to avoid panic – but to protect Democrats in the midterm elections.
Paul Rahe of Ricochet also wonders if there are other cases out there that are being swept under the carpet.
My first instinct is to suspect such claims. But, over the last few years, we have been misled time and again, and I could easily imagine the Obama Administration, in a panic, directing the CDC to hide as much as possible.
Like everything else about this administration, I suppose, the truth will eventually come out — after it is politically irrelevant.
Meanwhile, unlike last week’s Ebola hearing, Republicans on the Oversight and reform Committee came to their hearing, this morning, armed with the facts to assail HHS for its inadequate preparation for and response to the disease.
