Thanks For Nothing, Moron Politicians

NYDN102414a

It should have been stopped in Africa. There should have been an All Hands On Deck response from the start.

WHO’s pathetic self-centered weeping about its response being “inadequate” doesn’t bring back the thousands who died horrible deaths that could have been prevented.

The WHO, the UN agency designated with coordinating international response to disease outbreaks, missed chances to prevent Ebola from spreading when it was first diagnosed last spring, thanks to incompetent staff, a lack of information and bureaucracy due to “politically motivated appointments”, the report says. “Nearly everyone involved in the response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall,” said the report, obtained by the Associated Press. “A perfect storm was brewing.” The WHO refused to comment on the draft report.

Ebola Now In New York City

Bulletin just on NY1 News (local cable news station).

Doctor being held for evaluation in NYC has tested positive for Ebola.

And Ebola reaches New York City.

Why am I not surprised?

Hey, CDC, what do you say?

Next!

USAMRIID Finally Involved For Ebola In U.S.

The American Constitution forbids our troops being active domestically. However, I would support USAMRIID getting involved to stop this. The CDC is not working properly.

October 19: Military preps quick-strike team for Ebola response in United States

Jacoby is already working with the military on the joint team, Kirby said, and once formed, it will head to Fort Sam Houston in Texas for up to seven days of training in infection control and personal protective equipment. The training, provided by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, will begin “within the next week or so,” Kirby said.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

If USAMRIID fails, we’re all in trouble.

Second health care worker tests positive for Ebola in Texas

Frieden expressed regret for not having responded to the threat of Ebola more aggressively sooner, saying that with the benefit of hindsight, CDC should have initially dispatched “a more robust hospital infection team” to Dallas.

The CDC has acted like the Keystone Kops of medicine.

If a third person is infected on American soil, Frieden must resign, period.
