Obama’s Border Policy Fueled Epidemic, Evidence Shows

Scientists try to predict number of US Ebola cases

November 3, 2014

 (AP) -- Top medical experts studying the spread of Ebola say the public should expect more cases to emerge in the United States by year's end as infected people arrive here from West Africa, including American doctors and nurses returning from the hot zone and people fleeing from the deadly disease.

The Foundation for our nations is the Constitution

November 1, 2014

This mere document written with the blood of patriots shed in battle that saw this nation’s birth and their sacrifice to a common cause to see its true meaning.

The Associated Press has asked several researchers about the spread of Ebola in our nation by the end of the year:


The projections are complicated, but Ebola has been a fairly predictable virus - extremely infectious, contagious only through contact with body fluids, requiring no more than 21 days for symptoms to emerge. Human behavior is far less predictable - people get on airplanes, shake hands, misdiagnose, even lie.


Pandemic risk expert Dominic Smith, a senior manager for life risks at Newark, California-based RMS, a leading catastrophe-modeling firm, ran a U.S. simulation this week that projected 15 to 130 cases between now and the end of December. That's less than one case per 2 million people.


Smith's method assumes that most cases imported to the U.S. will be American medical professionals who worked in West Africa and returned home.


Smith said the high end may be a bit of an overestimate as it does not include the automatic quarantining measures that some areas in the U.S. are implementing.


Those quarantines "could both reduce the number of contacts for imported cases, as well as increase the travel burden on - and perhaps reduce the number of - U.S. volunteers planning to support the effort in West Africa," he said.


Another group of researchers have a different projection:


In a second simulation, Northeastern University professor Alessandro Vespignani projected between one case - the most likely scenario - and a slim chance of as many as eight cases though the end of November.


"I'm always trying to tell people to keep calm and keep thinking rationally," said Vespignani, who projects the spread of infectious diseases at the university's Laboratory for the Modeling of Biological and Socio-Technical Systems.


Dr. Peter Hotez, founding dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, pegs the range of cases in the U.S. between five and 100.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention prefers not to focus on a particular number. But spokeswoman Barbara Reynolds said Ebola will not be a widespread threat as some outside the agency have warned.


Alessandro Vespignani has another qualification for his projection and his remarks and were telling:


The foreseeable future extends only for the next few months. After that, projections depend entirely on what happens in West Africa. One scenario is that the surge in assistance to the region brings the epidemic under control and cases peter out in the U.S. A second scenario involves Ebola spreading unchecked across international borders.


"My worry is that the epidemic might spill into other countries in Africa or the Middle East, and then India or China. That could be a totally different story for everybody," Vespignani said.


Dr. Ashish Jha, a Harvard University professor and director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, said he's not worried about a handful of new cases in the U.S. His greatest worry is if the disease goes from West Africa to India.


"If the infection starts spreading in Delhi or Mumbai, what are we going to do?"


This is the current thinking on the state of the infection rate as seen by these researchers, they do not see a major outbreak of Ebola, though are concerned if it reaches a city like Delhi or Mumbai. Then all bets are off, with our air and sea ports remaining open to travel from the Ebola or other regions if it spreads from West Africa is a ticking time bomb that we have people come into our nation and spread this disease.


While it is comforting to think it could be limited, it may be a death sentence for the unlucky person(s) that become afflicted with this pathogen. We are convinced that our feckless tyrant is not able to handle this situation as he has politicized this issue as he does with everything else, we discussed this in our Obama is in Scandal Protection Mode Over Ebola article:


The appointment of Ron Klain as Obama's Ebola Czar is baffling and illuminating all at the same time. One primary question we have is why doesn't this regime fear Ebola, we are not talking irrational but rational fear, the kind that generates solutions to a crisis. Fear is a powerful motivator and keeps us from making choices that may in fact kills us. So we ask again: why isn't this government acting to safeguard the American people from, this virulent disease that does not have any effective method of treatment at this time, and a mortality rate of 70%?


Our national government has one primary duty and that is to protect the American people and our rights under the Constitution. They have failed and are failing miserably in this duty in regard to Ebola. We see competing interests beyond the American people are their motivational factors for the reaction to Ebola, and it changes minute by minute, hour by hour which means we do not have a plan to deal with Ebola no matter what Obama, Freiden and Burwell are telling us.


It is at such a point that we are now being told an Ebola Czar has been appointed to be the point man for this effort by the federal government. Without hashing over all the other commentary over the choice of Ron Klain appears to be only a political move to cover for the missteps of this regime than anything of real substance. The common sense efforts to keep Ebola out of our nation have been dismissed with such illogical reasons that is beyond belief, and this government looks to be a ship of fools or worse.


We cannot help thinking that this regime has been doing everything possible to allow Ebola into our nation and has put in place nonsensical procedures and protocols that have resulted in the same infection rate as health practitioners in Africa. They allowed a nurse who had tested positive for Ebola to fly on a commercial flight from Cleveland to Dallas. They do not have any credibility and they appear to welcome Ebola here by planning to bring infected people here from Africa for treatment, then just as quickly denying it after a memorandum surfaced from the State Department.


Watch this video and try to determine if we have a coherent Ebola policy in this nation, then ask yourself the follow on question, why not. From Associated Press.
