(Support Free Thought) – Washington, D.C. – Despite receiving little attention in the mass media, the November 2017 and April 2018 release of more than 35,000 and 18,000 documents by the Trump Administration, relating to the assassination of former President Kennedy—which had been withheld from the public for more than 50 years—sheds new light on the president’s murder and the two soldiers who attempted to stop it.

While the mainstream media did cursorily cover the two releases, virtually none of the coverage was aimed at the most damning revelations, which included the fact that two U.S. soldiers in separate locations uncovered cryptographic messages indicating that President Kennedy was going to be assassinated, prior to his murder in Dallas.

Ominously, both of these soldiers were subsequently institutionalized after attempting to get the information they had uncovered to authorities.

The first case involves an army code breaker named Eugene V. Dinkin.

U.S. Army Private First Class Eugene Dinkin served in Metz, France, in the 599th Ordinance Group and worked in the cryptography section of his unit. His duties at Metz reportedly included deciphering cable traffic from the European Commands, NATO, etc.

A report by Citizens for Truth About the Kennedy Assassination (CTAKA) explained:

On September, 1963, Dinkin noticed material in the Army newspaper, Stars and Stripes, and other print publications, that was negative toward the president and his policies and implied that he was a weak president in dealing with the Russians. The examples that he found became more negative, the suggestion being that if he were removed as president it would be a good thing. By mid-October Dinkin had found enough information—some of it subliminal—that he was convinced that a plot was in the works. One driven by some high-ranking members of the military, some right-wing economic groups, and with support by some national media outlets…

Dinkin’s studies forced him to conclude that the plot would happen around November 28, 1963, and that the assassination would be blamed on “a Communist or a Negro”. He then sent a registered letter to Attorney General Robert Kennedy. When he got no reply, he decided on other options.

Dinkin gathered his evidentiary material in late October 1963, which included psychological sets he had uncovered that he believed were being used to induce a specific state of mind into citizens’ consciousness regarding President Kennedy in the run-up to his assassination and he went to the U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg in an effort to meet with Mr. Cunningham, the Chargé d’Affaires.

Despite Dinkin informing Cunningham by phone that he had important information about a plot to assassinate Kennedy, Cunningham refused to meet with him or look at his evidentiary data.

Upon returning to Metz, his superiors informed him that he was scheduled to undergo a psychological evaluation on November 5, 1963. Dinkin then decided he had to leave his unit and go to Geneva, Switzerland, in an attempt to get this information to someone that could potentially assist in thwarting the assassination attempt.

Despite unsuccessfully attempting to speak to the editor of the newspaper, Geneva Diplomat, and a Newsweek reporter, who refused to listen to the information, Dinkin was able to speak to the secretary for Time-Life who was located in Zurich.

The documents reveal that on November 6, 1963, Dinkin went to the press room of the United Nations office in Geneva, where he informed reporters about the assassination plot.

Reporter, Alex des Fontaines, a freelancer for Time-Life and Radio Canada, later told authorities that he and a female reporter both recalled Dinkin discussing the evidence he had uncovered regarding an assassination plot. In fact, the information from Dinkin actually prompted Des Fontaines to file the story on November 26, 1963.

Additionally, an FBI Airtel from the Paris Legation to FBI Director Hoover of February 27, 1964, provides evidence that the FBI was aware of Dinkin’s information, as the Airtel notes that on November 8, 1963—over two weeks before Kennedy’s assassination—a message containing references to Dinkin’s activities noted that his statements and actions had apparently received considerable publicity.

The documents reveal that despite a wide range of U.S. government officials being made aware of Dinkin’s information, they all failed to report the assassination plot to the White House or Secret Service.

Dinkin was placed in detention upon his return on November 8 and held until November 13—when he was taken to Landstuhl Hospital in Germany for a psychological evaluation, and was subsequently transferred to Walter Reed Naval Hospital, where he was held for four months until he was discharged.

While Dinkin was being detained, a man who claimed to be from the Department of Defense visited him and asked him for the data he had collected regarding the assassination plot. Dinkin reportedly told the man where the papers were located. Upon his release, he realized that all of his data he had collected had been taken.

In an interview with FBI agents, he said he believed that there had been a plot perpetrated by a “military group,” and abetted by newspaper personnel working with the group that plotted to assassinate President Kennedy.

In a completely separate case, two newly released CIA documents reveal that prior to November 1963, Air Force Sergeant David Christensen, who was stationed at Kirknewton, Scotland, intercepted communications that an assassination attempt would be made on President Kennedy.

The documents reveal that Christensen, while stationed at a CIA listening post at an RAF base, reportedly intercepted communications about a plot to assassinate Kennedy—but few other substantive details surrounding exactly what he heard are available.

After hearing something he clearly was not intended to hear, and trying to get it sent to NSA, Christensen, like Dinkin, was reportedly committed to a mental health institution.

The fact that the cases of these two separate U.S. servicemen were withheld for over 50 years after the assassination clearly leads one to believe that this information was withheld for a reason. If these were two cranks, then why would these reports only be surfacing after 50 years?

The testimony of these men was hidden and kept secret for 50 years, as what they heard clearly implied a plot that went well beyond the single-gunman theory of the Warren Commission.

ENENews: “‘Cataclysmic’ mass die-off of birds along entire West Coast — Beaches covered with carcasses ” “Of course, everybody always wants to point…at climate change” What kind of BS is that?

Read this Article, then read the one directly beneath it. Has all of the world gone “dumb blonde”? Nothing against blondes of course, but what other explanation can someone come up with? The idiots that be…ask some of the dumbest questions, “if it isn’t climate change….” Climate change? Are you for real?

Unprecedented: ‘Cataclysmic’ mass die-off of birds along entire West Coast — Beaches covered with carcasses — Professor: It’s tragic… We’ve never seen something like this and ignore it at our peril… It’s the canary in the coalmine for us… We’re scrambling to figure out what’s going on with ecosystem (VIDEOS)

Statesman Journal (Oregon), Jan 2, 2015: Why is the beach covered in dead birds?… “It was pretty dramatic”… “I’ve never seen that many before”… a mass die-off… has been going on along the entire West Coast… “To be this lengthy and geographically widespread, I think is kind of unprecedented,” [said Phillip Johnson of the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition].

The Oregonian, Jan 6, 2015: Dave Nuzum, a wildlife biologist… said his office continues to field calls from concerned beach-goers who come across a grisly scene: Common murres and Cassin’s auklets dead on the beach in great numbers… Oregon is the cataclysm’s epicenter… He doesn’t expect the crush of deaths to let up any time soon… [It’s] up to 100 times greater than normal annual death rates.

CBC interview #1 with Professor Julia Parrish, University of Washington School of Aquatic and Fishery Science, Jan 6, 2015 (emphasis added): This is the worst wreck of cassins auklets that we’ve ever seen on the West Coast… Certainly we are concerned… Is it that there’s less of their food, or perhaps that food has changed its distribution?… How many cassins may actually be suffering in this particular mortality event? We’re working with oceanographers and atmospheric scientists to try and discover whether or not there is something in the environment which is signaling a difference, signaling a change. >> Full broadcast here

CBC interview #2 with Prof. Parrish, Jan 6, 2015: We’re also seeing some adults wash up… The bumper crop [born this year] can’t quite explain that very large difference… We’re easily seeing tens of thousands, if not actually more than that… Normally [it] can exist out in the North Pacific many kilometers from the coastline over the winter. We actually think that the population for some reason has snugged up to the coast… Unfortunately the cassins are the canary in the coalmine for us, so they’re telling us something is going on. To put it mildly, we’re still scrambling to figure out what’s going on with the ecosystem… Of course, everybody always wants to point the finger at climate change. The thing about climate change is it’s a very slow, steady change. >> Full broadcast here

CBC, Jan 7, 2014: More than 100,000 carcasses of the small, white-bellied birds have been found… up to 100 times the normal number are washing ashore in some places… “It’s a tragic event… We have never seen a die-off of Cassin’s like this, so that in and of itself says something” [said Parrish].

CBC News excerpts, Jan. 6, 2015:

CBC: It is a West Coast mystery — a mass die-off.
Prof. Parrish: [It’s] certainly indicating to us that there is something wrong.
CBC: Necropsies show no disease, no viruses, no bacteria.
Parrish: Tens of thousands of birds dead on the beach is something that we just can’t ignore — we ignore that at our peril.

Conference Paper for Society for Environmental Toxciology & Chemistry (SETAC), Dr. Juan Jose Alava & Dr. Frank Gobas, Simon Fraser Univ., published Dec 1, 2014 (emphasis added):

A Marine Food Web Bioaccumulation model for Cesium 137 in the Pacific Northwest — The Fukushima nuclear accident on 11 March 2011 emerged as a global threat to the conservation of the Pacific Ocean, human health, and marine biodiversity… This accident was defined by the [IAEA] as “a major release of radioactive material with widespread health and environmental effects requiring implementation of planned and extended countermeasures”. Despite the looming threat of radiation, there has been scant attention and inadequate radiation monitoring. This is unfortunate, as the potential radioactive contamination of seafoods through bioaccumulation of radioisotopes (i.e. 137Cs) in marine and coastal food webs are issues of major concern for the public health of coastal communities… [R]eleases of 137Cs into the Pacific after the Fukushima nuclear accident are… prone to concentrate in marine food-webs… [A] simulation time dependent bioaccumulation model… showed that 137Cs can be expected to bioaccumulate gradually over time in the food web… Bioaccumulation of 137Cs was characterized by slow uptake and elimination rates in upper trophic level organisms and dominance of dietary consumption in the uptake of 137CS. This modeling work showed… magnification of this radionuclide takes place in the marine food web over time.
Reviewer Comments (Dr. Nikolaus Gantner, Univ. of N. British Columbia): “Excellent abstract and an important contribution to the session in terms of modeling efforts and bioaccumulation. Provides long-term perspective on the issue.”
Dataset for Modeling Work, published Dec 1, 2014:
Food Web CS137 SETAC

The Fukushima nuclear accident… emerged as a looming threat to the marine biodiversity in the Pacific Ocean and human health in coastal communities. Assessment of long term consequences… should consider the extent of ecological magnification in food-webs… 137Cs cannot be ruled out as a potential bioaccumulative pollutant in regional food-webs, including… in BC waters. — Objective: To model the bioaccumulation of 137Cs in an offshore food web of the Pacific Northwest … Through the oceanic life stage cycle, Pacific salmon species are likely to deliver Fukushima associated 137Cs to the resident killer whales’ food-web in waters off the Pacific Northwest coast… 137Cs activities significantly increase in the food web after one year… 137Cs activities may achieve levels in upper trophic levels that may pose health risks in wildlife species. A rigorous monitoring program would… improve the ability to forecast 137Cs activities in marine organisms and uptake in human populations that consume sea products.

related Flash messages to subscriber mobile devices:
10/8 – Texas health authorities reporting that U.S. Ebola index patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, has died.

10/7 – CT Governor declares pub health emergency over Ebola threat. Move gives authorities power to quarantine those believed to have been exposed to the virus.

10/5 – AlertsUSA warns the number of daily reports of poss Ebola cases climbing fast. We monitor each and will only report on CONFIRMED cases to minimize false alarms.

What You Need To Know
On multiple occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via text messages to their mobile devices regarding the West African Ebola outbreak, the death of U.S. index patient Thomas Eric Duncan and stepped up efforts by federal and state agencies to prepare for what is threatening to become a much larger case count here in the U.S..

HEALTH SCREENINGS AT U.S. AIRPORTS

On Tuesday subscribers were notified that the federal government was preparing to announce the launch of health screenings at several major U.S. airports in an attempt to identify sick travelers. These plans were made public by the CDC the following day and involve the CDC and officers from the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs & Border Protection agency screening passengers at five U.S. airports that receive the majority of travelers from the Ebola-affected nations of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

FORCED QUARANTINE AN OPTION

Travelers arriving from these countries will be observed for signs of illness, be asked to complete a health and exposure questionnaire and have their temperature measured. If the travelers present with a fever or other indications, or if the health questionnaire reveals possible Ebola exposure, they will be evaluated by a CDC public health officer with forced quarantine a distinct possibility, particularly with those who refuse to undergo the new screenings.

RESOURCE: CDC Legal Authorities for Isolation and Quarantine

The screenings are slated to begin on October 11, 2014 at New York’s JFK Int’l (JFK) and next week at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta (ATL), Washington Dulles (IAD), Newark Liberty (EWR) and Chicago O’Hare (ORD).

British authorities also announced this week they would soon introduce similar enhanced screening procedures at Heathrow (LHR) and Gatwick (LGW) airports and Eurostar rail terminals.

MINIMAL IMPACT EXPECTED

Readers are cautioned that these checks will likely have very little impact on filtering those individuals who are possible carriers of the virus given the incubation period for Ebola is currently said to be as long as 3 weeks. So as to illustrate the inherent weakness in this layer of the strategy, the screening procedure would not have caught the Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, as he did not begin displaying any symptoms for several days after his arrival. Additionally, there are a myriad of OTC medications available to bring down fevers.

Additionally, all exit screening efforts taking place at airports in the Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are currently being carried out by poorly trained local healthcare and immigration workers, though the CDC is said to be increasing training efforts.

Further, readers should understand there are no direct flights between the U.S. and any of the three West African nations. Individuals traveling from the region must first fly to hub cities such as Paris, Brussels, Accra, Ghana, Nairobi, Kenya, or Casablanca, Morocco, then board connecting flights for the trip to the U.S.. Thus, debates about the U,S, government shutting down airline flights are, essentially, a waste of time unless you also intend to shut down all incoming flights from the whole of Europe, S. America and Asia as all three routes are used by travelers to ultimately arrive in the U.S…

CT GOV DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY

Gov. Dan P. Malloy issued an executive order Tuesday that gives the state’s public health commissioner broad power to quarantine anyone exposed to or infected with the Ebola virus.

RESOURCE: CT Declaration of Public Health Emergency (PDF)

NOTABLE QUOTES OF THE WEEK

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell this week stated that despite the best efforts of health officials, Americans have to prepare for the reality that there may be more cases of Ebola in the United States.

“We had one case and I think there may be other cases, and I think we have to recognize that as a nation.”

WHO European director Zsuzsanna Jakab this week stated that the spread of Ebola across Europe is “quite unavoidable.”

“It is quite unavoidable … that such incidents will happen in the future because of the extensive travel both from Europe to the affected countries and the other way around,”

Four Star Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, issued dire warnings about Ebola and the impact of an outbreak in the Caribbean or Central America:

“It will make the 68,000 unaccompanied minors look like a small problem.”

“If Ebola breaks out in Haiti or in Central America, I think it is literally ‘Katie bar the door’ in terms of the mass migration … into the United States.”

‘By the end of the year, there’s supposed to be 1.4 million people infected with Ebola and 62 percent of them dying, according to the CDC. That’s horrific. And there is no way we can keep Ebola [contained] in West Africa.”

“The nightmare scenario, I think, is right around the corner.”

To this end, health authorities are attempting to closely monitor an outbreak of a yet unidentified hemorrhagic disease spreading within several cities in Venezuela. Additionally, authorities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are treating what they refer to as a “probable” case of Ebola with a 47 year old missionary who returned to Brazil from Guinea last month.

MORE CONFLICTING GOVERNMENT INFORMATION
Once again, AlertsUSA again cautions readers to carefully evaluate the conflicting information being put forth by public health and government officials regarding transmission and survivability of the virus, perhaps in an effort to minimize panic.

Last week we highlighted conflicts regarding transmissibility via airborne and aerosol routes. This week, we point out that despite public pronouncements by the CDC, WHO and cable news medical personalities that the Ebola virus does not survive beyond a few HOURS on contaminated surfaces, published research in respected, peer reviewed scientific journals show that “viable” Ebola virus can in fact survive for multiple WEEKS on surfaces outside the body.

As an example, research published in 2010 within the Journal of Applied Microbiology demonstrated that two different strains of Ebola, including Ebola-Zaire which is at the heart of the current W. Africa outbreak, can survive for long periods in different liquid media and can also be recovered from plastic and glass surfaces at low temperatures for over 3 weeks.

Detailed Emergency Medical Services
(EMS) Checklist for Ebola Preparedness (PDF)

While it is impossible for anyone to be fully prepared for each and every type of emergency, it IS possible to mitigate your risk in specific, known threat environments. This is the case with the threat of Ebola.

AlertsUSA has established an Ebola preparedness website offing specific guidance and information on how to prepare for and respond to a domestic outbreak of Ebola. http://www.EbolaReady.com .

EbolaReady Banner – ALLOW IMAGES

Many of the preparedness suggestions on this page reflect common sense. Others will come across as cold and severe until it is remembered that Ebola is a highly infectious and deadly pathogen. More than half of those who become infected die and that death is particularly gruesome.

In addition, we make product suggestions on the site with links to a multitude of suppliers via Amazon as they are convenient and inexpensive compared to most retail outlets. That said, if you can find these products elsewhere at a better price, by all means exercise those options. The links are there for your convenience.

Ebola in the US: “Disaster Teams Were Notified Months Ago They Would Be Activated in October” By Mac Slavo Global Research, October 02, 2014

Ebola in the US: “Disaster Teams Were Notified Months Ago They Would Be Activated in October”

Region:

Ebola-Americans

A public tweet from a large government supplier of emergency response products specializing in “high risk events” says that Disaster Assistance Response Teams were told to prepare to be activated in the month of October. The shocking revelation, made on the Goldenstate Fire/EMS Twitter page, suggests that not only did someone know that the Ebola virus would be reaching America, but that they knew exactly when it would happen.

“What we are now hearing is just the tip of the iceburg (sic) as we enter October,” noted the company’s Twitter spokesperson. “Ebola virus will cripple EMS and hospitals.”

When Future Money Trends, a follower of the page, asked what they meant by this statement, Goldenstate Fire/EMS responded with a shocking revelation.

“DART teams were notified months ago they would be activated in October. Timing seems weird. Source: current DART member.”

The full twitter exchange is available here and a screenshot has been archived.

With the Ebola virus now having been confirmed on U.S. soil, speculation as to how it got here and how many others may have contracted it is mounting. The traditional thinking here is that the virus made its way to the United States simply by one infected individual coming into contact with another, and so on. But, a growing chorus of contrarian researchers suggests another possibility – the Ebola virus may have been weaponized by a government or rogue terror cell and it has been deployed as a bio weapon.

This may sound outlandish, but in August SHTFplan.com posted a video of a State Department official’s remarks to reporters about developments in Africa. In her statement she specifically referred to the growing crisis as an “Ebola attack,” suggesting that not only has the virus been weaponized, but that the U.S. government knew it was not a naturally occurring event.

Though such weaponization is difficult to achieve according to Dr. Joe Alton, it remains a distinct possibility.

As noted by Kurt Nimmo, who cites a 2013 Global Policy Journal report, if someone had the resources to make it happen, they probably could:

Although weaponization of Ebola is complex and unlikely, experts in the field say transmission of the virus by air has occurred between animals. They believe “with advancing knowledge about how to manipulate viruses, the traits that make these [hemorrhagic fever virus agents] difficult to weaponize might be a diminishing barrier.”

Additionally, a “reverse genetics system provides a way to produce highly virulent mutated viruses for the purpose of biological warfare or biological terrorism,” scientists believe, according to Teckman’s research. (Infowars)

Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show notes that the U.S. Army is intimately involved in Ebola research, adding further fuel to speculation that it has been used to develop new bio weapon systems:

The fact that the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) is involved suggests that either the Ebola virus, or the vaccine, or both, have been weaponized.

Weaponization aside, there is a third possibility and that is the virus did spread through the natural contagion effect, but that its entry into the United States is being facilitated by lax border policies and almost non-existent airport screening procedures, something that has Immigration and Customs officials terrified.

Over the last several years the U.S. government has been actively preparing for awidespread crisis scenario. Whether that crisis is Ebola or something else remains to be seen. But, what we do know is that they have stocked up not only armaments and ammunition, but tens of thousands of Hazmat suitsbody bags and what are believed to be millions of disposable FEMA coffins.

Moreover, the President updated several Executive Orders over the last several years authorizing, among other things, forced quarantines and round-ups in the event of a pandemic emergency and the appropriation of private resources like food, water and human labor.

That a major government supplier of emergency equipment has come out in the open to claim that their sources had foreknowledge of an emergency Disaster Response mobilization to occur in the United States in October of this year is an astonishing development considering what has transpired in the last 72 hours.

Summary

The first case of Ebola Virus Disease (Ebola) diagnosed in the United States was reported to CDC by Dallas County Health and Human Services on September 28, 2014, and laboratory-confirmed by CDC and the Texas Laboratory Response Network (LRN) laboratory on September 30. The patient departed Monrovia, Liberia, on September 19, and arrived in Dallas, Texas, on September 20. The patient was asymptomatic during travel and upon his arrival in the United States; he fell ill on September 24 and sought medical care at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas on September 26. He was treated and released. On September 28, he returned to the same hospital, and was admitted for treatment.

The purpose of this HAN Advisory is to remind healthcare personnel and health officials to:

(1) increase their vigilance in inquiring about a history of travel to West Africa in the 21 days before illness onset for any patient presenting with fever or other symptoms consistent with Ebola;

(2) isolate patients who report a travel history to an Ebola-affected country (currently Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea) and who are exhibiting Ebola symptoms in a private room with a private bathroom and implement standard, contact, and droplet precautions (gowns, facemask, eye protection, and gloves); and

(3) immediately notify the local/state health department.

Please disseminate this information to infectious disease specialists, intensive care physicians, primary care physicians, and infection control specialists, as well as to emergency departments, urgent care centers, and microbiology laboratories.

Background

The first known case of Ebola with illness onset and laboratory confirmation in the United States occurred in Dallas, Texas, on September 2014, in a traveler from Liberia. The West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea are experiencing the largest Ebola epidemic in history. From March 24, 2014, through September 23, 2014, there have been 6,574 total cases (3,626 were laboratory-confirmed) and 3,091 total deaths reported in Africa. Ebola is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with one of four viruses (Ebolavirus genus) that cause disease in humans. Ebola infection is associated with fever of greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F, and additional symptoms such as severe headache, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, or unexplained hemorrhage. Ebola is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with blood or body fluids (including but not limited to urine, saliva, feces, vomit, sweat, breast milk, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola or contact with objects (such as needles and syringes) that have been contaminated with these fluids. Ebola is not spread through the air or water. The main source for spread is human-to-human transmission. Avoiding contact with infected persons (as well as potentially infected corpses) and their blood and body fluids is of paramount importance. Persons are not contagious before they are symptomatic. The incubation period (the time from exposure until onset of symptoms) is typically 8-10 days, but can range from 2-21 days. Additional information is available at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/index.html.

Recommendations

Early recognition is critical to controlling the spread of Ebola virus. Consequently, healthcare personnel should elicit the patient’s travel history and consider the possibility of Ebola in patients who present with fever, myalgia, severe headache, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, or unexplained bleeding or bruising. Should the patient report a history of recent travel to one of the affected West African countries (Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea) and exhibit such symptoms, immediate action should be taken. The Ebola algorithm for the evaluation of a returned traveler and the checklist for evaluation of a patient being evaluated for Ebola are available at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/pdf/ebola-algorithm.pdf andhttp://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/pdf/checklist-patients-evaluated-us-evd.pdf.

Patients in whom a diagnosis of Ebola is being considered should be isolated in a single room (with a private bathroom), and healthcare personnel should follow standard, contact, and droplet precautions, including the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Infection control personnel and the local health department should be immediately contacted for consultation.

The following guidance documents provide additional information about clinical presentation and clinical course of Ebola virus disease, infection control, and patient management:

The case definitions for persons under investigation (PUI) for Ebola, probable cases, and confirmed cases as well as classification of exposure risk levels are at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/case-definition.html.

Persons at highest risk of developing infection are:

  • those who have had direct contact with the blood and body fluids of an individual diagnosed with Ebola – this includes any person who provided care for an Ebola patient, such as a healthcare provider or family member not adhering to recommended infection control precautions (i.e., not wearing recommended PPE
  • those who have had close physical contact with an individual diagnosed with Ebola
  • those who lived with or visited the Ebola-diagnosed patient while he or she was ill.

Persons who have been exposed, but who are asymptomatic, should be instructed to monitor their health for the development of fever or symptoms for 21 days after the last exposure. Guidelines for monitoring and movement of persons who have been exposed to Ebola are available athttp://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/monitoring-and-movement-of-persons-with-exposure.html.

Diagnostic tests are available for detection of Ebola at LRN laboratories as well as CDC. Consultation with CDC is required before shipping specimens to CDC. Information about diagnostic testing for Ebola can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/interim-guidance-specimen-collection-submission-patients-suspected-infection-ebola.html.

Healthcare personnel in the United States should immediately contact their state or local health department regarding any person being evaluated for Ebola if the medical evaluation suggests that diagnostic testing may be indicated. If there is a high index of suspicion, U.S. health departments should immediately report any probable cases or persons under investigation (PUI) (http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/case-definition.html) to CDC’s Emergency Operations Center at 770-488-7100.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) protects people’s health and safety by preventing and controlling diseases and injuries; enhances health decisions by providing credible information on critical health issues; and promotes healthy living through strong partnerships with local, national and international organizations.

(Before It’s News)

Oct 2 2014

 Are you truly prepared? Is anyone? After the 8th video, there is additional information on proper preparations and safety procedures.

Many are saying that this man and his EBOLA infection was a planned op. Check out this vital video complilation, folks, for the latest scoop. We need to be informed and take this seriously and ghet our selves and households in order!

The first reported case of Ebola in the United States is spooking airline investors and raising the prospect that some frightened travelers might stay home despite repeated reassurances from public-health experts.

Details of the man’s 28-hour trip from western Africa emerged Wednesday. He flew on two airlines, took three flights, and had lengthy airport layovers before reaching Texas on Sept. 20.

Still, federal officials say other passengers on the flights are at no risk of infection because the man had no symptoms at the time of his trip.

Thomas Eric Duncan left Monrovia, Liberia, on Sept. 19 aboard a Brussels Airlines jet to the Belgian capital, according to a Belgian official. After layover of nearly seven hours, he boarded United Airlines Flight 951 to Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C. After another layover of nearly three hours, he then flew Flight 822 from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, the airline confirmed.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Duncan sought medical care Sept. 25 in Dallas after falling ill the day before.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the National Institutes of Health, told The Associated Press that even though Duncan took several flights to reach the U.S., his lack of symptoms at the time made it “extraordinarily unlikely” that he infected anyone else on the planes.

Still, the incident spooked airline investors. Shares of United and other leading U.S. airline companies dropped 2.8 percent or more. Shares of European carriers fell by similar margins. Read more

 MORE:

(CNN) – The first person to be diagnosed with Ebola on American soil went to the emergency room last week, but was released from the hospital even though he told staff he had traveled from Liberia.

“A travel history was taken, but it wasn’t communicated to the people who were making the decision. … It was a mistake. They dropped the ball,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

“You don’t want to pile on them, but hopefully this will never happen again. … The CDC has been vigorously emphasizing the need for a travel history,” Fauci told CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”Read more

Ebola In Hawii

Rumor has it, that Hawaii has an Ebola case also!

Be safe, don’t eat fish, kelp, corn, don’t talk to people you don’t know, don’t let anyone touch you, if someone acts feverish run the other way, and for god’s sake, don’t let anyone cough or sneeze around you, sweat around you, or cry on you.  They claim it is not airborne except when someone coughs or sneezes, and in body fluids of any kind.

Be Safe!

PATIENT IN ISOLATION IN HONOLULU HOSPITAL FOR POSSIBLE EBOLA
NATIONAL 15 HOURS AGO 1 COMMENT

The Department of Health has confirmed a patient is currently in isolation and undergoing testing in a Honolulu area hospital for the Ebola virus.

A male who was checked in to the hospital on Wednesday morning is currently undergoing testing for several conditions, Health Department officials said.

The Department of Health would not confirm to that the man had traveled to or from West Africa in recent weeks.

Ebola Spreading, Be Safe! Be Prepared!

Ok… Ebola, confirmed in Dallas, Texas.  The individual had gone to the hospital a few days ago.  He had been to Liberia, where Ebola runs rampant.  This individual had Ebola symptoms.  He was given antibiotics and sent back home.  At home, he was in contact with 5 children, of which attend 4 different schools in Dallas area.

Alerts USA has the name of the schools as follows:

“The 4 unnamed Dallas schools attended by students exposed to Ebola patient
are Tasby Middle School, Hotchkiss Elem, Dan D. Rogers Elem and Conrad High
School.”

Alerts USA also posted this to me in email:

“AlertsUSA sources within Texas HHS indicate at least 2 add’l Ebola cases in
Dallas area hospitals. Numbers expected to climb. Pub anncmnt expected
within days.”

In addition to the Ebola news, is the RAM Alert in Tennessee today  see it here:  NETC

Why the hell has Obama not closed down the borders?  Why are people walking around with Ebola?  Why is the news media got their heads in the sand?  We have flights coming in from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and other countries that are literally failing, due to the pandemic, and America does nothing to protect us.  If you are not taking these issues very seriously, you need to quit watching the regular news, and go to where you can learn the truth.  This is a mess, and if statistics are correct, before December, America could literally have 5 million dead and dying from Ebola!!!

Waken the sleepers, and for God’s sake, don’t you dare let Obola, act like he is saving us from these evil ISIS scum, he helped create them, he funded them, and now he is saving us from them?  What at the price of the rest of our Rights?  Are you kidding me?  All the while, he has literally introduced Ebola into America, guaranteed to kill 90% of the population, and for who?

Sheeple awaken!!!  They will be coming for ours guns next!  They will need to save us from ISIS, save us from ourselves, save us from our neighbors!  Are you kidding me?  WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!!!

Its Here, Take Heed!

A Dallas hospital expects preliminary test results Tuesday that may confirm whether a patient there has Ebola. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas placed the patient into “strict isolation” after the person’s symptoms and recent travel history raised concerns, spokeswoman Candace White said in a written statement Monday. The name and other details about the patient were not released. The hospital said it is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, staff members and visitors. No Ebola cases have been confirmed in the United States, though several aid workers who contracted the disease in West Africa have returned to the U.S. for treatment. Last month, patients in Sacramento and New York City were isolated because of concerns they’d contracted the disease, but they tested negative for the virus. Specimens from such patients are delivered to the CDC in Atlanta for testing that takes 24 to 48 hours. There have been more than 6,500 cases of the disease in Africa and more than 3,000 deaths have been linked to it, according to the World Health Organization. Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea have been hit the hardest. Ebola has killed up to 90 percent of those it has infected, but the death rate in this outbreak is closer to 60 percent because of early treatment. The virus spreads through direct contact with blood, organs or other bodily fluids and with surfaces contaminated with the fluids. Early signs of Ebola such as fever, diarrhea and vomiting can develop within two days of infection. There is no specific treatment for Ebola, but doctors can provide fluids and pain relief before symptoms become severe. Death occurs from profuse internal and external bleeding that starves the organs of blood. Dr. Kent Brantly, a Fort Worth physician who contracted the virus in July while doing relief work in Africa, was treated in an Atlanta hospital. He was discharged in August after nearly three weeks of treatment. He and another American aid worker, Nancy Writebol, received an experimental treatment called ZMapp. It’s unknown whether the drug helped or whether they improved on their own. On Sunday, an American doctor who was exposed to the Ebola virus while volunteering in Sierra Leone was admitted to an isolation unit at a hospital at the National Institutes of Health near Washington D.C. Another aid worker who contracted Ebola while volunteering in West Africa also remains hospitalized.
