An NBC News article reports “A second Texas health care worker who provided care for Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan, has tested positive for the virus in preliminary check, officials said early Wednesday – the third known case of the disease in the United States.”
“The worker reported a fever Tuesday and was immediately isolated at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, state health officials said in a statement. Confirmatory testing will be carried out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.”
“‘Health officials have interviewed the latest patient to quickly identify any contacts or potential exposures, and those people will be monitored,’ the Texas Department of State Health Services said. ‘The type of monitoring depends on the nature of their interactions and the potential they were exposed to the virus.'”
“The worker was among those who took care of Thomas Eric Duncan, who died a week ago after he was diagnosed with Ebola earlier this month….”
The second nurse has been identified as Amber Vinson. The first nurse to be infected is Nina Pham.
As if this second nurse coming down with ebola isn’t bad enough, she developed a slight fever (0.9 degrees) and when she called up the CDC and asked them if she could fly to Cleveland for a wedding, the lunatics in the CDC approved her travel plans.
Now this is mind-boggingly crazy!!! Is the whole CDC made up of quota-hires and know-nothing Democrat hacks?!!!
One of the first signs of ebola in many people is an elevated temperature. The CDC should have asked her to come down to the hospital immediately when her temperature had climbed nearly one degree.
Instead, they not only allowed her to travel on a plane (crammed full of people), they let her take a trip to a wedding, where she was likely to meet dozens of people, who might be infected by her.
We would not be in this situation in the first place if Barack Obama had done his job as president and shut down all air travel between the ebola countries and the US. Obama should be impeached for this latest act of blundering neglect and recklessness. Obama deliberately chose to leave the US borders wide open to the Third World, including the ebola countries because the Democrats want as many needy Third World illegal immigrants in the US as possible as future Democrat voters.
Obama should be impeached for failing to protect the US borders and for putting politics ahead of preventing a foreign plague from coming to the US.
