Saturday Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American Ebola virus patient to be treated in the U.S., arrived at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Dressed in haz-mat gear, he was surprisingly able to walk by himself inside the university with the help of another person, also in haz-mat gear. Dr. Brantly is one of two Americans infected with the Ebola virus while working in West Africa, and the first Ebola patient on U.S. soil.
Described as a group of viruses, the Ebola virus causes a deadly kind of hemorrhagic fever. Meaning it causes bleeding inside and outside the body. Early symptoms include fever, muscle weakness, sore throat and headaches, with a long incubation period of approximately eight to 21 days. As the disease progresses, the virus can impair kidney and liver function, and lead to external and internal bleeding. It’s one of the most deadly viruses on earth. It has a fatality rate that can reach between approximately 50 to 90 percent. Currently, there is no cure.
Needless to say that there has been great concern that the virus will spread, although Dr. Jay Varkey, an infectious disease specialist at Emory, has stated that Americans do not need to worry about the virus spreading. It should be noted that the current outbreak in West Africa which began in March, has slowly spread across the region.
According to infectious disease experts, transmission of the Ebola virus requires direct contact with an infected person’s blood, vomit or feces during the period that he or she is contagious. Tom Frieden, head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention assures us that, "Ebola poses little risk to the U.S. general population." When asked if the virus can be transmitted through the air, the White House website states that "No, Ebola is not a respiratory disease like the flu, so it is not transmitted through the air." However, new research from Canada shows that it possibly could be transmitted through the air.
Another train of thought is beginning to occur to many Americans across the country. Is this newest crisis just a little too convenient? The timing couldn't be better to deflect attention away from the immigration issue and the threat of President Obama using his executive authority to grant work permits to millions of illegals. It also distracts from the lawsuit brought by Boehner on behalf of the House, and the spectre of impeachment. The question being asked is, could this be another arranged "crisis" for the American people?
USA Today reports, “The USA will launch an early-stage trial in September of an experimental vaccine against Ebola..." Once a public health emergency is declared by WHO, untested experimental vaccines can be given to populations. Will a pandemic be created to allow this? If there is no danger of the Ebola virus spreading, why has the US military distributed Ebola detection kits to National Guard in all 50 states? It should be noted that Emory University Hospital never treated Ebola before. Fort Dietrich has a super containment facility much more suited for this situation, yet it wasn't used. Also, why is there a patent on the Ebola virus (EboBun), and why on Thursday did President Obama sign an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of “respiratory illness?”
Whether this new crisis is real, another "false flag" or if it's the beginning of Americans being used as guinea pigs is unknown. What is apparent is the U.S. has been involved with the Ebola virus for a long time, it isn't something new.
