Dr. Ben Carson: Mistake to Bring
Ebola Patients to US

Breitbart TV, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/4/2014 6:01:03 PM

Monday on Newsmax TV´s "America Forum," Dr. Ben Carson said we should not have brought the Ebola infected missionaries back to the United States. Carson criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) pointed out we could send a hospital equipped plane or set up a properly equipped hospital on location in Africa. The former director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University and Hospital, explained a simple medical mistake could cause the disease to spread within the borders of the United States because the bodily fluids of an infected patients remain infected for many days. When questioned whether

I agree with him. The CDC physicians who are Obama-controlled made these decisions.

And it wouldn´t have been done without Obama´s sign off.

A rare case where I disagree with Dr. Ben. The people being transported back are heroes, people who have faced a medical monster showing a courage not a one of us is likely to ever match. They did it to help their fellow man with a selflessness completely unfathomable to an Obama hipster NGO. At a minimum we owe them the best in care.

If a simple medical mistake is the risk - and I don´t doubt that Carson knows how frequent and easy this might be - then don´t make the mistake.

But these people should be saved. They have earned it.

They keep insisting that Ebola is not an air-borne contagious disease, yet a study last year by Canadian researchers showed segregated Ebola infected piglets caged next to uninflected monkeys produced infected monkeys.

The experts have yet to explain how scores of doctors and health workers keep getting infected (and dying) even though presumably following strictest protection regiments.

We are correct to be alarmed.

Rule #1 with any disease of this nature has to be isolate. Isolate. Do all you can to help those infected but you can´t allow the disease to spread. Never transport them to another country.

While I agree that our people need and deserve the best of care, bringing them here with the kind of havoc Ebola can wreak on the population is beyond stupid, careless and unconscionable! While the do-gooders have every right to their opinion, they do not have a right to expose me or mine with a virus this dangerous! If this gets out of control, it will make the flu contagion of 1911 look like a Sunday school picnic! By the way, 675,000 people here died of that!

It may prove to be a mistake. Or not.

I doubt Ebola will get loose in the US from imported patients. But it is likely a traveler will bring it in sooner or later. The good news is that effective treatments and vaccines seem near.

We do know importing is expensive and dramatic. Unless the CDC has unrevealed methods that only work within US borders treatment could have been done in Africa.

M. Savage discussing this same topic this afternoon. WHY were they returned to the US? If they were so well protected when caring for them across the waters, how then the professionals become infected? No cause for panic but concern is to be expected, along with much suspicion.
What my be the ulterior motives of o and valjar? Knowing the evil of these two, we can expect nothing less.

Dr. Carson says no, but one of the docs on Fox News Sunday (?) , when asked replied this particular type is not as contagious. At least that is what was thought to be heard.

At the moment Reverend Graham organization was responsible for their return trip. Once here who will be responsible for purchase of the thousands of antidote doses which could be/might be required eventually?

So our country has reached a point where we can actually believe that our government would possibly eliminate a few hundred thousand persons? Perhaps even millions?

Once this virus spreads to countless others, will there be riots? Is this a plan to induce o to declare martial law?

´Folks´ this is scary stuff. And even scarier considering where we were 8 years ago. Something such as this had never been dreamed and that it could actually become reality is frightening.

Just how much do we trust our present government?

My daughter has a degree in microbiology. Her concern is that we are all human, and as such make preventable mistakes. The high security ward where these patients reside are one mistake from contaminating the facility. BTW, my daughter is as progressive as they come.

On another note: Why doesn´t 0bama extend his 0bama Doctrine to help Central Americans under attack by violent predators to the rest of the world under attack by Ebola, ISIS, Russians, Hamas and any number of dangers?

Re #6,

These experiments are interesting in that they demonstrate the susceptibility of pigs to Zaire Ebolavirus and that the virus from infected pigs can be transmitted to macaques under experimental conditions by an aerosol route. They fall short of establishing that this is a normal route of transmission of Ebolavirus in the natural environment. The evidence that pigs play a role in the transmission of Ebolavirus, other than Reston Ebolavirus, remains circumstantial but something that should be pursued with urgency. It is curious that transmission between macaques in similar housing conditions was never observed. -

Clearly Ebolavirus is very contagious but there is only weak circumstantial evidence that transmission from pigs occurs via the porcine breath aerosol. Anyone who has been around pigs knows that they urinate and not in dribbles. Splashing urine (+ Ebolavirus) could readily produce a urine mist that could make its way to an immediately adjoining cage with macaques and in their grooming themselves get infected. -]

Completely agree with Carson. The hubris of man will be his downfall.
They have now moved a very dangerous disease from one continent to another. I feel for the infected doctors and their families, and I agree they went above and beyond, however, they of all people know the consequences of this risky venture.
Medical equipment and treatment could have been transported, the disease should not have been!!! My bet is the CDC, blinded by their hubris, and more concerned with their comfort brought it here to study, thinking they will be able to contain it.

I also agree.

My plan would have been to isolate the patients on board a medical ship off shore.

Once the 21 day incubation period for the last person boarding the ship has passed, then and only then would the ship set sail for the USA.

This would mean that there would be 21+ days without anyone showing any symptoms plus the days a-sea.

Fascinating, #s6 and 14... and very alarming. Not only is the virus spread easily, but between species, and ebola is probably transmitted from animal to man.

The bubonic plague needs a vector, the flea, to spread the bacterium from rat to man, until it turns pneumonic and then it spreads easily by means of droplets expelled in cough or sneeze or even talking.

I can understand why Samaritan´s Purse wants their people home, but in order for these patients to end up in the care of the CDC, they must have gotten permission from the government.

By the way, interesting typo --or Freudian Slip-- in 3rd paragraph referring to the UnTIED States.

I have to agree with my colleague, Dr. Carson.

Other than general supportive treatment, we have but one treatment modality for this disease – isolation. Instituting international travel of infected cases, for a treatment that can be implemented full well at the point of infection, is a violation of the primary, and currently only, means of containment and management of this deadly disease.

On another related note, our open border to the South is a gaping maw in our national health care system – one that is has been laid open and gaping by the willful action of the Obama administration. With diseases like Ebola on the loose, this is foohardy in the exreme.

A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus
