The first Ebola death on our soil. Not a surprise. Our missionary workers survived likely due to the special Zmapp serum, which is now all gone. This is a virus which has an 80% mortality rate. Those who survive naturally are lucky. More of the Zmapp drug will not be available until next year.

In the meantime, Obama has announced temperature screenings at five US airports: JFK, Dulles Atlanta, Newark, and O’Hare in Chicago. Only JFK starts this week. The rest, next week. Not that anything could happen in 7 more days.

The Liberian man diagnosed with Ebola last month just days after arriving in Texas has died following nearly two weeks in a Dallas hospital’s isolation room, officials confirmed.

Thomas Eric Duncan, believed to be 42, who became the first person diagnosed with the killer virus on American soil during the current pandemic, died early Wednesday after a battle that sparked a national debate on screening of visitors from West Africa, which has been ravaged by the disease. His death came a day after officials began treating him with an experimental drug and days after he had taken a dramatic turn for the worse.

Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national, had been placed on a ventilator and kidney dialysis after his health declined over the weekend.

    And the Rev Jackson calls “racist!!” I can see this turning into what the first years of the HIV infection were like. Working transfusion service requires the diagnosis quite often, particularly with HIV, the drugs and the disease both can interfere with safe crossmatching. Back in the first years, of all the diseases on the planet, HIV infection was the one that doc and nurses could not share diagnosis with anyone even those of us down in transfusion service. We finally figured a code; we would call the floor and ask diagnosis…they would say; “the diagnosis is the diagnosis we can’t tell you about”. Ok, then we had it and could continue to set up safe blood. How many patient died because of this political correctness lunacy? And now a**holes like Jackson are starting the same thing with Ebola. Healthcare workers need information to treat patients, but Jackson and the rest of these morons will certainly cause many to die who do not need to die…..
