Ebola again………..why?

Is it worth the risk, bringing more Ebola patients to America now?
It feels like they can be treated there, and I’m obviously totally with that…TREAT THEM!
But, it feels odd to expose our country to this.  I keep wondering why a plane can’t be well outfitted to help them on the ground in Sierra Leone then come home when it’s certain they’re not contagious and nobody on that plane treating them is contagious.  Sounds nasty of me, and if it was me or a loved one, I’m not sure how I’d feel, so I thought I’d ask you.  UPDATE:  It appears to be TEN people with “possible Ebola exposure” coming to the States.

Thankfully, the last exposures went well…..and many people could and would not be exposed if a couple of patients come here (at least they’re not staying in an apartment complex like the last poor guy who did die went, remember?  And I guess that doctor in NYC never got it, the one who went bowling with symptoms?), but……

your thoughts?  Back on THIS again?  As if we haven’t problems enough?

    Ebola may be far deadlier than the government is letting on. Did you see this article?

    Yes, I did see that at AOW’s site. It’s horrifying. Nobody’s telling anybody that even if you ‘recover’ you might be plagued for years and even die young, not have children, etc…..feel rotten.

    But, Mustang, I’d NEVER think this government would EVER keep anything secret…would YOU? (smile)

    Exactly, Z … and now we must also ask, “Who in their right mind would want to become a nurse?”

    NOT ME, that’s for SURE.
    When this was going on, a friend in his fourth year at UCLA med school was SO glad he had been assigned a rotation that was NOT the unit that MIGHT take in highly contagious diseases when we were facing this last time…he has a wife and two (adorable) little girls at home. He had every RIGHT to say he would NOT intern with that department had he been assigned….and probably would have been kicked from med school.

  5. Ebola seems to be a lot like Agent Orange from the Viet Nam War. Once you have it, it stays with you forever. As to who in their right mind would want to become a nurse, the same might also be said about becoming a police officer today.

  7. When this news of yet another Ebola patient was coming to the NIH, the news cheerfully announced, “All the Ebola patients treated at the NIH are fine now.” Not so!

    As Mustang showed above, Nina Pham is not all right. She’s unable to work, for one thing. She may well be permanently disabled.

    Different people’s organ systems, well, differ. We should not expect good outcomes in every Ebola “cure.”

    No kidding! Internal organ damage. Such damage can have lifelong effects.

    And we don’t know about relapses for those cured, either.

    Ed, good point.

    And I think measles and some of the other diseases obozo is importing from Central America will be bigger problems. Then you have the nutcase parents who aren’t vaccinating.
