American doctor sick with Ebola

An American doctor is sick with the deadly Ebola virus which has killed 670 people so far in Africa. Two American aid workers also fell ill with the disease. One died.

According to published reports, the National Guard and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta are quietly preparing for an Ebola outbreak in America.

According to Infowars.com, the Department of Defense has supplied biological diagnostic systems to National Guard support teams across the U.S.

In the event of an Ebola outbreak, even healthy Americans who show no symptoms will be forcibly quarantined, according to the official CDC website.

Kent Brantly, 33, was treating Ebola patients in West Africa when he became ill with the disease himself. “He is not doing well,” Dr. David McRay told AFP in a phone call. He said Dr. Brantly requested that he not reveal details of his symptoms, “but he is weak and quite ill.”

The Ebola outbreak, which started in March, has infected over 1,200 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Dr. Brantly was infected while treating patients in Liberia.

He said he isn’t sure how he became infected with Ebola. Brantly said he took strict precautions and followed safety guidelines by wearing a protective suit that covered every inch of his body.

Ebola is spread through direct contact with blood and stool from an infected person.

Dr. Brantly is still in Liberia where he is being treated. “There are organizations that will not transport Ebola patients… because of the fear of transporting an Ebola patient,” said Melissa Strickland, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organization (WHO).

Brantly’s wife and two children, who traveled with him to Liberia to work with a Christian aid group, have returned to the United States. They are under quarantine.

      Death by Ebola is f-ing awful it’s basically everything melting down blood coming pouring from everywhere and there is no cure although if caught early they will be Ok but there is an older woman who is quarantined now in West Africa and her health is deteriorating quickly… This has me afraid to travel… Wonder if this is just a media frenzy keep folk from Africa…

      Sorry but when I first read this over past few days and still NOW…they should NOT have been allowed the heck back here PERIOD. It is now coming out that this dude showed symptoms BEFORE HIS FAMILY EVEN LEFT from over there. So he knew the deal and sent them back here anyways. Not right. At all.

      :no: This is awful and if he was so “covered” how was he still infected? Is it now eating through protective materials. His family is quarantined but what is their status? I have questions and they don’t have the answers

      I saw on the news last night that they were scanning people in the airports with heat cameras to see if they had a fever. My only question is this. By the time you catch them in the airport isn’t it too late?

      That mayne family is yt. They wasn’t goin let them stay over there. Come on. If they did, that chit woulda straight been “blamed” on Obama.

      Why did his family even go over there to begin with knowing that was a “red zone” area? The doctor was only gonna be there a few months.

      SMH. Just foolishness all around.

      Yeah, that explains why DR. BRANTLY was there. To help with others.

      Why was Dr. Brantly’s FAMILY there? They ain’t doctors? It was a risk for them to be there in the beginning and now they traveling back here. What good did that do? :shrugs:
