Obama likes to go about his day campaigning, golfing and grabbing BBQ. He seems completely at peace with the fact that the world is in tatters. Some say his nonchalant attitude is intentional, so as not to upset the American people by acting concerned. If that is in fact true, then Obama should win an Oscar for the current acting role he is pulling off. While he perpetuates the facade of being cool, calm and collected, reports are beginning to surface that U.S. health authorities are privy to an alarming number of American Ebola victims and are hiding that information from the public.
CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta broke the news that he has seen at least six patients at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City who exhibited signs that suggested they may be carrying the Ebola virus. The individuals were tested, but the results have not been made public.
“There have been about a half a dozen patients who have had their blood tested because of concern, those particular patients their stories were not made public. I’m not sure if that’s because of heightened concern by the hospital or what that means exactly.”
The highly contagious Ebola virus seems to be getting more and more deadly as the days roll by. At first, it was widely accepted that Ebola could only be spread through the transfer of bodily fluids. Now, medical professionals are acknowledging the fact that it may very well spread through airborne strands of the virus.
The Public Health Agency of Canada’s official website states that “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.”
In addition, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has urged airline staff to take steps to prevent the airborne spread of Ebola. These measures include giving suspected Ebola victims surgical masks and directing staff to “not use compressed air, which might spread infectious material through the air.”
An Ebola outbreak in the United States would surely cause national hysteria, especially because Obama would be at fault because he is the one who brought Ebola patients to the U.S. in the first place.
