First we were told that Ebola didn’t easily spread. Then the nurse in Dallas caught it. According to recent reports, the CDC gave her clearance to fly knowing she had a low grade fever because she wasn’t “exhibiting other symptoms.” Previously, the CDC said she traveled by air 24 hours before becoming symptomatic. (But last time I checked, a fever was a symptom.) After she flew, we found out the plane made five additional flights before being decontaminated. The CDC assured us that she wasn’t contagious, but now they’re having a sudden change of heart.
The CDC is fixing another one of their crooked statements. They recently notified Frontier Airlines that the nurse “may have been symptomatic earlier than initially suspected.” Which means that everyone on that flight and flights that took place before decontamination were exposed to the Ebola virus.
From the Blaze:
In a letter to employees, Frontier Airlines CEO Dave Siegel said he “was notified by the CDC that the passenger may have been symptomatic earlier than initially suspected; including the possibility of possessing symptoms while onboard the flight,” according to WEWS-TV.
The CDC had previously said that the nurse “exhibited no signs or symptoms of illness” while on the flight, but said they still wanted individuals who were on the flight to contact them. In a statement, Frontier had echoed that and said their crew didn’t observe any signs of illness from the patient.
But don’t worry everyone. Obama said that we’re going to handle Ebola cases, “in a much more aggressive way” now. He’s so serious that he missed a couple Democratic fundraisers yesterday. Wow!
The truth is, the Obama administration is ignoring the most common sense thing to do. We need to stop incoming flights from Ebola-ridden countries. But we can’t. Because that would be racist. Continuing this kind of ridiculous debate is all part of left’s idea of “white guilt.” Why should we stop incoming flights? That would just be mean and unfair!
America will be much more helpful to Africa if we’re not battling Ebola here at home, and that’s the truth.
