I don't expect any of the Obama-bashers to admit they were wrong about his handling of the issue. The bashing was just another clear example of ridiculous meritless criticism stemming from personal hatred, and nothing more. It's amazing they can't see how amateurish it makes them look to make such wild foolish statements.

It had nothing to do with the post you quoted. My reading skills are fine. I am sure by now you realize that people here know what a joke you have become. The gift that keeps on giving.

BTW, all Klain is doing is running the office. You know, an office manager. Have you ever held a job?

I most certainly do hold a job and have for over a decade in an executive position in the field directly associated with the Ebola outbreak.

Klain is “running the office”? Man you really are clueless. Where did you get that information?
Nobody has seen or heard from him since his appointment as Czar. The CDC has yet to issue their “revised” (for the fourth time) guidelines.

I have meetings with the principle from government, NGOs and professionals usually monthly and one of the top agenda items has been the Ebola matter.
The government agencies representatives generally just sit there as their cabinet level bosses do not permit them to engage. It doesn’t matter because they don’t have any idea how to solve a real world problem. The NGO folks, while passionate do not have the resources to solve the problem.
The professionals know exactly what to do and have the resources but are constantly obstructed by the government representatives who have but one objective: cover for the White House and their political handlers.

While you sit there on your loading dock schlepping boxes, the professional world is working hard to get the job done. Soon we will be able to actually get more done now that we have a Congress that is working for the people instead of controlling them.

Its all good, your roach coach lunch will be there soon!

New York Ebola doctor 'virus free'

An American doctor who became the first person to be diagnosed in New York with Ebola is to be released from hospital on Tuesday after he recovered.

A statement from city health officials declared that Craig Spencer "has been declared free of the virus".

He worked for Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in Guinea and tested positive for Ebola on 23 October after he returned.

The news that he went on the subway and went bowling the night before falling ill had officials retracing his steps.

Dr Spencer is one of several Americans to have recovered after being treated at a specialist unit in the US.

A Liberian man died in Dallas after contracting the virus before coming to the country.

But the fatality rate in West Africa is much higher, where nearly 5,000 people have died.

In other developments:

New tactics including rapid-response teams are needed to defeat the Ebola virus in Liberia, according to the charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)
Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says four soldiers and their commanding officer will be punished after a boy was killed during protests against quarantine measures
Former Microsoft boss Bill Gates told the BBC that progress is being made in fighting the virus.

Dr Spencer was given an experimental drug, and blood plasma donated by another American who recovered from the disease, Nancy Writebol, according to the New York Times.

"After a rigorous course of treatment and testing, Dr Craig Spencer - the patient admitted and diagnosed with Ebola Disease Virus at HHC Bellevue Hospital Center - has been declared free of the virus," the city's health department said in a statement.

His movements around the city before he tested positive sparked two states, New York and New Jersey, to impose controversial quarantine measures for aid workers returning to the US from West Africa.

One nurse, Kaci Hickox, defied instructions to stay indoors because she had no symptoms and repeatedly tested negative.

Klain: Ebola as a weapon 'unlikely'
By Eric Bradner, CNN
updated 5:04 PM EST, Tue November 11, 2014

Washington (CNN) -- White House Ebola czar Ron Klain on Tuesday downplayed the chances of Ebola being used as a biological weapon after a scare in New Zealand.

Klain said he was briefed Tuesday after a small vial supposedly sent by jihadis and containing Ebola was sent to the offices of the New Zealand Herald newspaper. The newspaper sent the vial to Australia for testing.

"Based on our best information, I think the odds are high that this turns out to be a hoax," Klain said on CNN's "The Lead" with Jake Tapper.

He said U.S. officials are "always watching intelligence traffic and other indicators" to see if terror groups are using Ebola or other diseases as biological weapons, but that "we're not aware of any credible threat" and that the odds of that happening are low.

Klain touted the overall U.S. response to Ebola cases here and to the outbreak in West Africa, saying health officials have "tried to learn the lessons from Dallas," where the first case was diagnosed in the United States, by increasing training, preparation and protective gear at health facilities nationwide.

"What we've shown now is that we can successfully identify and isolate an Ebola patient, we can make sure he doesn't infect other people, we can treat him, and we can send him home safely," he said.

When President Barack Obama tapped Klain as his Ebola response coordinator, Republican lawmakers howled that the long-time political operative -- Klain served as Vice President Joe Biden's chief of staff and helped Obama with debate preparation during his re-election campaign -- isn't a medical professional.

But Klain told Tapper on Tuesday that he isn't serving in a role that requires a medical background.
"My role isn't to give medical advice, it's to coordinate this massive response that President Obama has marshaled here at home and in Africa," Klain said.

The complete lack of knowledge about Ebola and its treatment demonstrates that his "executive job" is another lies in a series of lies this guy puts out here on a daily basis. Mule doesn't have the intelligence or people skills to be any type of manager. If he does have a job, his coworkers probably feel much the same way we feel about him.

obama administration caves, will quarantine troops retuning from Africa?

text size US Troops Returning From Africa Head to Langley Updated: Thursday, November 13 2014, 12:51 PM EST WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says about 80 troops returning from the Ebola mission in Africa will arrive Thursday in Virginia and be isolated for 21 days at Joint Base Langley-Eustis. Rear Admiral John Kirby is the Pentagon press secretary. Kirby says they will arrive around noon and be housed in buildings in a secluded area on the west side. He says none of the service members are showing any symptoms of Ebola. Langley and four other U.S. bases are designated as locations where troops returning from the Ebola mission could be housed while they undergo medical monitoring for three weeks. The 51 airmen, 27 sailors, four Marines and two soldiers will be able to communicate by phone and computer with their families. Copyright 2014 Associated Press.

Your are a trip. You can be anybody you want to be on the internet. What are you going to do, mail me a paystub? Hilarious. You are as phony as the day is long. You know nothing about Ebola but you are an exec involved with it. Hey remember when you said you were in the Marines for 7 years? How did you do that? An enlistment is for 4 years with another 4 years of active or inactive reserve service. How did you make 7 years? Bad conduct discharge? Or were you some wounded hero who was released from service before you got your Medal of Honor for courage under fire.

You are the gift that keeps on giving.

The military is under the direct control of the obama administration.
So are you saying that while the obama administration does not think anyone returning from Western Africa should be put in a mandatory quarantine but the military shall be quarantined?

BTW - nobody really knows do they because obama's Ebola Czar is apparently in self quarantine. No one has heard from Klain and no policy has been issued.

Nebraska hospital prepares for new Ebola patient
From Elizabeth Cohen, Senior Medical Correspondent
updated 8:21 PM EST, Thu November 13, 2014

(CNN) -- A surgeon who's a Sierra Leone national and a legal permanent resident of the United States will be transported from Sierra Leone to The Nebraska Medical Center for treatment for Ebola, a government official familiar with the situation said.

The doctor is expected to arrive this weekend, most likely Saturday, the official said.

The official said it's not known whether the doctor was working in an Ebola treatment unit or some other type of hospital. The surgeon is married to a U.S. citizen and has children, the official said.


Sierra Leone has seen more than 5,300 cases of Ebola and more than 1,100 deaths in this year's outbreak of the deadly virus, according to figures from the World Health Organization.

The Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha is one of four hospitals in the United States that have biocontainment units and years of preparation in handling highly infectious disease such as Ebola.

Doctors there have already treated two American Ebola patients. Dr. Rick Sacra was treated at the hospital and released in September. Ashoka Mukpo, a freelance cameraman who worked for NBC, was treated there and released last month.

Sacra and Mukpo contracted the virus in Liberia and were later flown to the United States for treatment.

So far, the limited number of Ebola cases treated in the United States have shown a higher survival rate than cases treated in West Africa.

A number of factors could impact the latest patient's treatment, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta told "AC360."

"We don't know how sick he is. We don't know what stage of the disease he is (in)," Gupta said.

The fact that doctors have decided to transport him gives some indication of his condition, Gupta said.

"Just the simple act of transporting somebody from West Africa to the United States, the person's got to be medically stable enough as well," Gupta said.

"So the fact that they're going to do that transport, that probably gives some idea of how he's doing overall in terms of stability."

Doctor's death marks second U.S. Ebola fatality
By Ashley Fantz, CNN
updated 8:41 AM EST, Mon November 17, 2014

(CNN) -- Marking the second Ebola death in the United States, Dr. Martin Salia died at around 5 a.m. ET Monday, according to Nebraska Medicine spokesman Taylor Wilson.

A legal permanent resident of the U.S., Salia was working in West Africa when he contracted the virus.

Salia arrived Saturday at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. The hospital tweeted Monday that he was "extremely critical" when his treatment began and "unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we weren't able to save him."

Salia was suffering from advanced symptoms of Ebola, including kidney and respiratory failure, health officials said.

Now sure who you mean by "we", but it has been studied extensively since first being discovered in the 60s and much more is known than most people realize. As for the negative test, see below...

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/11/17/ebola-death-martin-sal ia/19162043/

Smith said Salia tested negative for the virus on Nov. 7, in the early days of his illness. Smith said "false negative" test results are possible in the first days of symptoms when the viral load is relatively low. Salia ultimately tested positive for the virus Nov. 10.

Daniel Johnson, director of critical care at Nebraska Medical Center, said Salia was critically ill when he arrived at the hospital, where the medical team quickly had to combat kidney and respiratory failure. Salia was placed on dialysis, required a ventilator and received plasma from a surviving Ebola patient, Smith said.

Multiple medications included experimental ZMapp therapy, a new drug that has shown promise in fighting the disease.

"We used every possible treatment available to give Dr. Salia every possible opportunity for survival," Smith said. "As we have learned, early treatment with these patients is essential. In Dr. Salia's case, his disease was already extremely advanced by the time he came here for treatment."

We as a medical community; the guy was relatively sick when he had a false negative test. I still feel that re: travel limits; quarantine; etc the margin of error should be on public safety. We are discussing the same facts - we just disagree on what should be done with those facts. The same way that tests can have false positive/negative results protocols are not 100% secure.

Ebola epidemic 'nowhere near over' in West Africa, CDC director says
By Elise Viebeck - 11/17/14 01:29 PM EST

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Thomas Frieden said the Ebola epidemic is "nowhere near over" in West Africa, despite a decline in cases in Liberia, one of the hardest-hit countries.

Speaking at an event at the Aspen Institute on Monday, Frieden compared the epidemic to a widening forest fire that could easily spread to other regions in Africa. He said he was "very concerned" by the idea that Ebola is receding, which has been promoted by some media outlets.

"It's nowhere near over," Frieden said. "It's going to be a very long, hard fight. … There are so many cases that we're not able to do the kind of outbreak control that is needed."

Frieden repeated several times, "We have a long way to go" while discussing the CDC's response on the ground and in the United States.

The World Health Organization announced last week that the Ebola death toll now exceeds 5,000, a number that likely underestimates the true number of fatalities.

Reports indicated that some new cases are due to a surge of the disease in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Mali also has a new cluster of cases that is concerning to global health officials.

Ebola was back in U.S. headlines Monday, when an American surgeon died of the virus after being transported from Sierra Leone to Omaha, Neb., for treatment.

The surgeon, Martin Salia of Maryland, initially tested negative for the disease. He arrived at the Nebraska Medical Center in critical condition over the weekend.
