Texas patient confirmed as first Ebola case diagnosed in US
By Jason Sickles, Yahoo 51 minutes ago

DALLAS – A Texas man just back from West Africa has been confirmed as having the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the U.S.

Authorities with the Centers for Disease Control revealed the finding Tuesday, two days after the unidentified patient arrived at a Dallas hospital with suspicious symptoms.

Officials at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas put the man into “strict isolation” and sent a blood specimen to the state public health lab for testing.

The CDC said results show the man has the deadly disease which has been linked to more than 3,000 recent deaths in Africa. According to the World Health Organization, there have been more than 6,500 cases confirmed in Africa, with Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone among the hardest hit.

Dr. Christopher Perkins with the Dallas County health department told reporters that the Texas man didn’t start showing symptoms until he arrived home.

“We know at this time this person was not symptomatic during travel but became symptomatic once arriving here and being home for several days,” said Perkins, according the Dallas Morning News. “So that decreases the threat that might be to the general population.”

CDC officials are scheduled to release more details within the hour.

Sanguine, my second eldest daughter is already an RN in an ER at some hospital in Dallas. Not this one I'm pretty sure but I have a text message out to her to make sure.

Interesting source for this citing of another of Obama's missteps.

"On MSNBC's Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews argued with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel about President Obama saying it was "unlikely" that an Ebola case would strike the U.S.

"Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It's here," Matthews said.

Dr. Emanuel said there is some "fear mongering" going on here, but Matthews said he was just quoting the president and stating facts. Here's a bit of the argument that lasted nearly ten minutes:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: I'm just trying to follow the logic here. Everybody's being told, don't worry unless they have the infectious symptoms, you can see them, that you don't have to worry about catching them. Yet, this guy picked up the disease apparently from somebody who did not have the infectious symptoms.

DR. EZEKIEL EMANUEL: Again, don't hypothesize because we just don't know. We have no idea what he did or didn't do and how he got it. I'm sure that's going to be vital information to try to understand the transmission, but the idea that there's going to be a widespread outbreak here, I think is just, again, it's a bit of fear mongering. We have a single case. This is not a big, widespread --

MATTHEWS: Yeah, yeah, but I'm just going back to the president's statement, doctor, and that is that the president said it would be unlikely if we had a case in this country. Unlikely to even have one case. You want to see the tape again?

EMANUEL: He said there wouldn't be an Ebola outbreak.

MATTHEWS: No, and in the second part of his sentence he said in the unlikely case someone brings it here. In the unlikely case someone brings it here. Well, they've done it. We're living in the world of the unlikely already. That's all I'm saying. I'm not fear mongering. I'm stating the facts and I wonder if everybody else is...

MATTHEWS: No, the president said it was unlikely two weeks ago. Well, it's not the unlikely, it has happened. It's here.

Even Chris Matthews? The sky IS falling!

Just dandy, isn't it, Cinncinatus?

I realize that there's little danger at present, but it sure "brings it home."

The sky has already fallen. It just took dopes like Matthews until now to figure it out.

Yep ... once upon a time common sense public health measures would have been instituted early this year when it became obvious that this outbreak was not following the typical pattern of occurring in a remote village, staying there, and rapidly burning itself out.

However, the minions of global corporate and finance who over see public health issues can't have any impediments to free movement of goods and persons.

Well if you see it from that perspective a world strategy will be needed to combat Ebola which will enhance their power over others.

That goes under never let a good crisis go to waste. In this case scare people into surrendering their freedom in exchange for safety.

CDC confirms Enterovirus D-68 in Hamilton preschooler who died

Zitat
“Our thoughts remain with the family at this very difficult time,” said N.J. Health Commissioner Mary E. O’Dowd. “While the child has tested positive for EV-D68, the cause of death has not yet been determined and it is unclear if EV-D68 played a direct role or was a contributing factor in his death.”

The same language is being used in children with EV 68 who become paralyzed.
