    Default Ebola Patient arrives

    Well, the doc is here. I'm wondering what the penalties will be if the virus gets loose and kills even one other person. I personally think that ALL involved should be held CRIMINALLY liable if a single person here in America dies as a result of this ridiculous decision. The buck should go to the highest person involved in this up to and including our senators and congressmen and the pres. Just a stupid thing to do.

    very strange decision to put the publics health at risk... a lot can go wrong and Mr Murphy is always lingering in the background.

    This is the country the POTUS wants... take it or leave.

    Weather you are for or against Obama there is no way of denying his involvement in this decision. This is his baby good or bad.

    One thing it gives the government a chance to whip up a good vaccination, with a computer chip in it, for all the conspiracy theorist.

    This strand is worse than other because it only has mortality of 60% and the last was 90%. If it would get out then it will take a lot longer for it to burn out.

    Wrong move to bring those persons to the USA! They can say all they want about how safe it will be but... they are putting people in jeopardy by bringing them to the USA. IMO

    Those two people knew the risk when they went over there to help. To bring them back here is insane! What the Heck bring all of the Ebola patients to the US. You can't make this crap up. Keep thinking I'm in a sci-fi movie.

    Those two infected are Christian missionaries attached to the Samaritan's Purse a medical Christian missionary movement based in North Carolina. It is headed by Franklin Graham , Billy Graham's son. He draws a yearly salary of $1.2 million . No surprise they got to the USA w/this connection.

    I am sure Obama will invite Franklin to the National Prayer Breakfast next year since they are so tight. Get real.

    Ahem .... the ebola virus has been in this country since the early 80's and nothing has happened. It's in the labs at the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick, MD and the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

    Eric - I understand that to be the case as well - post #8 . Interesting isn't it , remember all the noise about small-pox and the pressure on 1st responders to be vaccinated for it? Remember the refusals/firings/mandatory vs choice/politics ?

    The two agencies I mentioned have each a supply os the most horrible biologics. Smallpox for instance. While it was deemed eradicated for the past 15 years or so, there were recent cases. I'll bet the CDC inventory was pulled out of the freezer and checked and perhaps research started anew. The experimental ebola vaccine that they only had a single dose. That came from somewhere and it sure wasn't a lab in Nigeria. Those two sites are international treasures.

    Again, the book by Richard Preston, The Hot Zone, is worth reading. A highly sensationalized version of an ebola outbreak in this country was covered in the movie Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman and Rene Russo.

    This stuff is scary but the fact that we've got a whole group of folks dedicated to resolving these episodes should give us some hope ....rather than the snippy comments I'm seeing around the 'net.
