Ebola: It's Back! "For God's Sake Get a Grip."
INTO THE HOT ZONE
How to stop Ebola amidst a plague of political correctness
"FOR GOD'S SAKE, GET A GRIP." That was the New York Daily News' recent front-page headline, giving voice to Americans' total exasperation with both Barack Obama and CDC chief Dr. Tom Frieden after weeks of having to endure condescending, evasive and contradictory assurances that they were totally on top of the Ebola threat – when the truth was exactly the opposite.
During that period, a Liberian man who personally carried a dying Ebola victim was allowed to fly from West Africa into Dallas, where he interacted with dozens of people including school children, then fell deathly ill with Ebola. A nurse at the hospital, while following the CDC's Ebola-care protocols, became infected, and a fellow nurse, after developing a fever – the No. 1 early-warning sign of the disease – phoned the CDC to ask if it was OK to fly on a commercial airliner and was told, yes, have a great flight. Then she fell ill with Ebola as well.
Meanwhile, the CDC has been changing its Ebola protocols every few days, Obama has steadfastly refused to halt the flow of travelers into the U.S. from the West African hot zone, and has ordered 4,000 U.S. military personal into the infected region to fight the virus. His State Department has proposed transporting Ebola victims from West Africa into the U.S. for treatment, and he has appointed as his "Ebola czar" a Democrat political operative with zero medical experience, but lots of experience in helping fleece taxpayers out of half a billion dollars in the Solyndra fraud.

Nebraska patient case raises questions about Ebola test
Liz Szabo, USA TODAY
The death of physician Martin Salia from Ebola has raised questions about the tests and drugs used in the disease.
Salia, a surgeon who was flown from Sierra Leone to Omaha's Nebraska Medical Center Saturday, had two negative tests for Ebola before testing positive. He arrived in Omaha on the thirteenth day of his illness, said Phil Smith, medical director of the Nebraska hospital's biocontainment unit, one of four around the USA designed for the most dangerous infectious diseases.
Salia is the 10th person with Ebola treated in the USA. While all eight Americans have survived, both patients from Africa -- including Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan -- have died.
Although Ebola tests are generally considered accurate, they may produce false negative results early in a person's infection, when levels of the virus are still low, says Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The test isn't sensitive enough to detect very small amounts of virus.
That's why people who suspect they could have Ebola -- because they have symptoms and may have been exposed to the virus -- should be retested again in 48 to 72 hours, Fauci says.
