US Ebola Nurse Slams Re-Entry To The USA Quarantine Process

Ebola Nurse Treated Like 'Criminal'

Ebola Nurse Treated Like ‘Criminal’

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

An American nurse criticises her treatment after being quarantined with suspected Ebola on her arrival home from West Africa. I said in a previous blog Health Workers and Nurses had been talking about strike action. These people are on the front line, coming back to a Country (USA) so ill prepared for Ebola it is untrue. As I write this, Dr. Craig Spencer is ill, he was ILL IN AFRICA! He came home, went bowling, went on a tube at a tube station (Sorry we don’t have these here) He walked through a Mall. He flew home coughing. ONLY NOW..The USA are screening all Ebola aid workers on re-entry to the USA. Sadly these brave people are getting treated like criminals, I am glad Kaci Hickox has said what many Dr’s and Nurses are saying in the USA, sadly the Medical people in the USA don’t pay out, they take money. THIS IS WHY EBOLA IS IN THE USA AND NOT EUROPE! MONEY! Hard to take America? CDC Now Admits Airborne Ebola, if Dr Spencer has spend 3 days, ill in New York coughing and leaving his spit/saliva on a hand rail or someone walked past him as he sneezed or coughed, they people have Ebola. This isn’t Rocket science here, define Airborn, then we understand how easy this is to catch when the circumstances are right. But it is STILL very yard to catch. My worry as I type is New York. We now have a 21 day  time period to wait. After these 21 days there are no fresh infected, New York dodged a bullet, if Hospitals fill up, it’s global and will effect all of the species, all over the World. America, YOU MUST WAKE UP OR YOU WILL KILL HUMANITY! Do not do this to the World

50 American people at least are being monitored today as I type and you read, I truly believe Ebola IS AIRBORN! 

An older video, I said it was Airborn, I believe it is


An American nurse who has been treating Ebola patients in Africa has criticised quarantine rules that keep her isolated despite testing negative. Doctors Without Borders worker Kaci Hickox returned to the US from Sierra Leone on Friday and was taken to a New Jersey hospital in case she had the killer virus. She has now been told she is free from the disease, but will be unable to leave quarantine for another 21 days. Illinois joined New York and New Jersey on Saturday night in introducing a mandatory 21-day quarantine period for anyone who has been involved in treating victims in west Africa. Other states, including Virginia and Georgia, are also considering whether to impose the same regime.

It follows 33-year-old doctor Craig Spencer falling ill with ebola having spent several days travelling around New York, riding the subway and visiting a bowling alley. Writing in the Dallas Morning News, Ms Hickox said: “This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me. “I am scared about how health care workers will be treated at airports when they declare that they have been fighting Ebola in West Africa. “I am scared that, like me, they will arrive and see a frenzy of disorganisation, fear and, most frightening, quarantine.”

Ebola Response: Science Not Fear

She said on telling a border official she had just arrived back, she was immediately ushered into a private room before having questions “barked” at her. She said she was made to wait hours with little to eat, only to later test negative for the virus. Despite the test, she must wait in a secure facility in New Jersey until it is certain she has not contracted the disease. She said: “I… thought of many colleagues who will return home to America and face the same ordeal. Will they be made to feel like criminals and prisoners?

“The US must treat returning health care workers with dignity and humanity.” The number of Ebola cases worldwide has now exceeded 10,000, with nearly 5,000 not surviving. President Barack Obama urged Americans on Saturday to be guided by the facts about Ebola and “not fear”. Dr Spencer, who is being held at the Bellevue Hospital Center in New York, was described by officials overnight on Saturday as “entering the next phase of his illness”.

health service statement said: “The patient is awake and communicating. In addition to the required supportive therapy, we initiated antiviral therapy within hours of admission. We also administered plasma therapy yesterday.” Meanwhile, in Sierra Leone, a team from the British Army has started training residents in how to use protective equipment to reduce the spread of the disease. Many of the locals who have volunteered to help fight the virus have no medical background.

CDC Now Admits Airborne Ebola Possible But Don’t PANIC!!

Week old video, just to show how the USA Government and 100% the Media are lying to the US people!

Ebola – Official ‘The White House’ Email To US Citizens – How To Prepare For Ebola






By Shaun Gibson  @ShaunyNews720px-US-WhiteHouse-Emblem.svg


Ebola: What you need to know

At a time when Ebola is all over the news and it’s easy for misinformation to get interpreted as truth, make sure you have the clear-cut facts.

Here’s what our public health officials are saying about the Ebola virus — get informed, and share this information where everyone can see it.

  1. You CAN’T get Ebola through:
  2. The only way a person can get Ebola is through direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who is already showing symptoms of the disease.
  3. If a person does not have symptoms, they are not contagious.
  • Casual contact with someone who has no symptoms of the disease
  • Air
  • Water
  • Food in the U.S.

As President Obama, leadership at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other senior officials have reiterated, the chances of a widespread Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.

Still, you don’t want to be misinformed about Ebola. Find out more about how we’re responding to the disease, and the domestic and international efforts to contain and end the epidemic.

You can visit the CDC for more information on our response to Ebola and call 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636) for additional inquiries.

I would love to believe this but how did 2 Nurses wearing hazmat suits at all times get infected? That is a problem to this official email right away. I use logic at all times, so lets use Logic. This MUST be airborn in some cases. People in full hazmat suits should not be catching this, this tells me, it’s in the air. Think about it. Don’t just believe an email or the news, think for yourself. Logic tells us these 2 nurses who have never been to Africa in their lives got infected. WHY? I don’t know the answer, but this email is not helpful. If I had a brain and lived in the USA, I would be questioning how Ebola managed to get into the WORLDS SUPERPOWER so easy. Want me to tell you America? BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE COST MONEY AND SADLY IN AMERICA THE MEDICAL SYSTEM DOESN’T PAY OUT. This is the VERY HARSH reason Ebola will reach all corners of the USA….MONEY! GREED! POWER! – USE LOGIC!!

U.S. health official allowed new Ebola patient on plane with slight fever


By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNew

(Reuters) – A second Texas nurse who has contracted Ebola told a U.S. health official she had a slight fever and was allowed to board a plane from Ohio to Texas, a federal source said on Wednesday, intensifying concerns about the U.S. response to the deadly virus. The nurse, Amber Vinson, 29, flew from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday, the day before she was diagnosed with Ebola, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said. Vinson told the CDC her temperature was 99.5 Fahrenheit (37.5 Celsius). Since that was below the CDC’s temperature threshold of 100.4F (38C), “she was not told not to fly,” the source said. The news was first reported by CNN. Chances that other passengers were infected were very low because Vinson did not vomit on the flight and was not bleeding, but she should not have been aboard, CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden told reporters

Not a big Fox News fan as I believe they scare the USA! Anyway

Congress will hold a hearing on Thursday on the U.S. response to Ebola, with Frieden and other officials scheduled to testify.

Vinson was isolated immediately after reporting a fever on Tuesday, Texas Department of State Health Services officials said. She had treated Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of Ebola on Oct. 8 and was the first patient diagnosed with the virus in the United States. Vinson was transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta by air ambulance and will be treated in a special isolation unit. Three other people have been treated there and two have been discharged, the hospital said in a statement. Television images showed Vinson walking from an ambulance to an Emory hospital door with an escort, both of them in protective clothing. Vinson, a worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, had taken a Frontier Airlines flight to Cleveland from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Friday. She returned to Dallas on Monday aboard Frontier Flight 1143. The CDC said it was asking the more than 130 passengers who were also on the flight to call a CDC hotline.


In Washington, President Barack Obama said the likelihood of a widespread Ebola outbreak was “very, very low.” But he pledged a more aggressive response to U.S. Ebola cases. Obama met with Cabinet officials to discuss the government’s response after canceling trips to various U.S. states on Wednesday and Thursday to focus on the Ebola crisis. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said Obama should consider a temporary ban on travel to the United States from countries suffering from an Ebola outbreak.

At least 4,493 people, predominantly in West Africa, have died in the worst Ebola outbreak since the disease was identified in 1976. The virus can cause fever, bleeding, vomiting and diarrhea, and spreads through contact with bodily fluids. Vinson’s trip to visit family members in Ohio put a second U.S. metropolitan area on Ebola alert. She is related to three Kent State University employees and the school’s health services director, Dr. Angela DeJulius, said they had been asked to remain off campus for 21 days.

They will monitor themselves for possible symptoms of Ebola, she said.

Cleveland Clinic and the Metro Health System said they had put on paid leave employees, mostly nurses, who were on Vinson’s flight to Cleveland from Dallas. They were returning from a nursing conference in Texas. The Ohio health department said the CDC was sending staff to Ohio to help coordinate Ebola efforts. U.S. airlines stocks tumbled again on Wednesday on renewed fears of a drop-off in air travel. Ebola concerns also contributed to a 1 percent drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which was under pressure from global economic worries. Over the weekend, nurse Nina Pham, 26, became the first person to be infected with Ebola in the United States. She had cared for Duncan during much of his 11 days in the hospital.

National Nurses United, which is both a union and a professional association for U.S. nurses, said on Tuesday that the hospital lacked protocols to deal with an Ebola patient.


Basic principles of infection control were violated by both the hospital’s Infectious Disease Department and CDC officials, the nurses said in a statement, with no one picking up hazardous waste “as it piled to the ceiling.” The hospital said in a statement that it had instituted measures to create a safe working environment and it was reviewing and responding to the nurses’ criticisms. The hospital also said it would offer a room to any affected worker who wanted to avoid the possibility of exposing other people to the Ebola virus. Dr. Daniel Varga, the chief clinical officer for Texas Health Resources, which includes Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, will apologize on Thursday for mistakes made in treating Duncan, the man who died of Ebola in Dallas. “We did not correctly diagnose his symptoms as those of Ebola. We are deeply sorry,” he said in online testimony prepared for the congressional hearing. The Dallas County Commissioners Court is set on Thursday to discuss whether to ask Governor Rick Perry to declare a local emergency. The declaration would help reimburse Dallas County for expenses related to Ebola. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said at a news conference that Vinson, the second infected nurse, lived alone and health officials moved quickly to clean affected areas and to alert her neighbors and friends. A decontamination could be seen taking place at her residence.

USA – German Dr Accuses CDC Of Lies – Ebola Could Kill 10’s Of Millions And It Is Air born

Here is an American You Tube, well known user giving her thoughts from inside the USA where, Africa aside it has taken toll the Worst. I know many American people refuse to look at bad news or debate it and a sentence I hear a lot from American people is “What can I do” Take Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, Garlic, Nano Silver. The only way Ebola will not kill America in a year is if YOU the people take action. Place bleached towels on the entrance to your home, clean your hands with Hospital grade hand gel, wash a lot, and just be vigilant. So America you CAN help. The reason I am speaking to America here is you are very close to a PANDEMIC, this is 100x worse than an EPIDEMIC. America there are many cases not yet seen you as the Media are not scaring you and I can’t blame them as it is awful. I said 2 days before the main stream media. I reported it on Monday 6th This is Wednesday 8th when the media FINALLY ran the story Many people think there are lies being told by the CDC and the video below is of a German Ebola expert telling the truth, it is reported. Basically a German based CDC Dr is accusing the CDC of understating the severity of Ebola Worldwide in a huge way – CDC = Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Ebola is hitting Worldwide and every day new cases are being reported. I said a week ago we will know in 21 days how bad this really is, so 10 to 14 days we will know, but the experts expect it to kill 50,000,000 (That is 50 Million) people, less or more depending on where you read, this is an average. AT LEAST WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW!


NEW YORK – A group of German medical doctors in a peer-reviewed medical journal article published by Oxford University Press have challenged a key assumption regarding the Ebola virus repeatedly asserted by Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.  The researchers found that a patient showing no symptoms of the disease can still transmit a virus like Ebola by air if droplets containing the virus are transmitted to another person by a sneeze or cough.

As WND reported Tuesday, the World Health Organization has admitted that “wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently could transmit the Ebola virus over a short distance to another nearby person.” WHO said it could happen when “virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing onto the mucus membranes or skin with cuts or abrasions of another person.” Still, WHO added a qualification, insisting the transmission of Ebola by sneezing or coughing is not within its definition of airborne transmission.

News broke Wednesday morning that the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., Thomas Eric Duncan, had died in Dallas. The victim’s home neighborhood in the Liberian capital, meanwhile, remained under quarantine. Later Wednesday, a Texas sheriff’s deputy was rushed to the hospital in Frisco, Texas, with Ebola symptoms after delivering a quarantine notice to the apartment where Duncan was staying. WND reported Wednesday Liberia is preventing journalists from reporting Ebola-related stories from health care centers in the country unless they obtain written permission from the government. The news came as the World Health Organization issued a statement warning that the officially reported decline in new cases in Liberia over the past three weeks “is unlikely to be genuine,” because problems with data gathering continue.

‘Not easily detected’

The German physicians, led by Dr. Timm H. Westhoff of the Department of Nephrology at the Carité Campus Benjamin Franklin in Berlin, noted in a virology blog published Feb. 12, 2009, that acute viral infections such as Ebola hemorrhagic fever may cause little or no clinical symptoms in a so-called “inapparent infection” yet may be contagious. “A well-known example is poliovirus: over 90% are without infections,” Westhoff and his colleagues continued. “During an inapparent infection, sufficient virus replication occurs in the host to induce antiviral antibodies, but not enough to cause disease. Such infections are important for the spread of infection, because they are not easily detected.” Westhoff and his colleagues then made the key point that individuals with an inapparent infection, showing no symptoms, can yet spread diseases such as polio.


“During the height of the polio epidemic in the United States, the quarantine of paralyzed patients had no effect on the spread of the disease, because 99 percent of the infected individuals had no symptoms and were leading normal lives spreading infection.” Westhoff and his colleagues also discussed the risk of spreading Ebola by sneezing or coughing.

“An example of a classic acute infection is uncomplicated influenza,” the medical doctors noted. “Virus particles are inhaled in droplets produced by sneezing or coughing, and begin replicating in ciliated columnar epithelial cells of the respiratory tract. As new infectious virions are produced, they spread to neighboring cells.” The point was clear: “Inapparent infections probably are important features of pathogens that are well-adapted to their hosts. They replicate sufficiently to endure the spread to new hosts, but not enough to damage the host and prevent transmission.” Westhoff and his associates conclude: “Acute viral infections are responsible for epidemics of disease involving millions of individuals each year, such as influenza and measles. When vaccines are not available, acute infections are difficult to control – most are complete by the time the patient feels ill, and the virus has already spread to another host.”


The German physicians published in 2008 the fundamental medical research that formed the basis for their blog comments, demonstrating kidney-transplant patients could carry the norovirus infection that is common in cases of acute gastroenteritis, even if the patient was asymptomatic. Westhoff’s 2008 study provided “the first evidence” that norovirus, typically a self-limiting disease of short duration, can cause chronic infection in renal transplant recipients,” even when there are no symptoms of acute gastroenteritis evident in the patient. Dr. Norman M. Balog, D.O., a board-certified family doctor practicing in Silver Spring, Maryland, brought the research of the German medical team to the attention of WND as evidence that the CDC’s Frieden could not prove his assertion air travel was safe as long as a person infected with Ebola were not showing symptoms. An infected person can go as long as 21 days in an incubation period before being infected.

“Dr. Freiden is either completely uninformed of this research,” Balog explained to WND in an exclusive telephone interview, “or he is deliberately lying because he does not want to panic the general public.” Balog pointed out that asymptomatic carriers of diseases infecting others is a phenomenon that has been widely documented in virology studies for decades. “There’s a good potential that on any given day a person you may shake hands with will have Strep Group A Streptococcus that causes sore throats,” he pointed out. “Shaking hands you take the risk you are going to get the Streptococcus virus, even if the person you shook hands with looked perfectly well.” Balog explained to WND much of the fundamental research on Ebola, including the conditions under which asymptomatic carriers of the disease can infect others, has yet to be conducted and reported in peer-reviewed medical journals.

“Dr. Freiden and the CDC have been reassuring the American public from the beginning of the current outbreak that we can contain and control Ebola, no problem; but the first assurances were three continents ago,” he pointed out. “Now we have Ebola in the United States and in Spain. Where is Ebola going to show up next?” Balog was critical of the steps taken so far by the CDC to contain the Ebola outbreak. “Ebola is spreading a lot faster than anybody expected,” he said. “But even today we are not stopping people from West Africa from boarding international air flights; health officials in Dallas did not put up a fence around Duncan’s apartment complex; and it took several days before Dallas health authorities found anyone qualified to clean up the vomit outside Duncan’s apartment. And then the workers just washed the vomit down into the town storm drains.” Balog pointed out the medical literature on virology commonly says asymptomatic but infected individuals can spread a disease to others before showing any signs of being sick. “We have medical models that say a person is capable of secreting a virus like Ebola in bodily fluids before the person displays symptoms of the disease,” he stressed, “and that medical evidence is simply being ignored by Dr. Frieden and the CDC when the public is told repeatedly it’s OK to let Ebola-infected people fly as long as they don’t have a fever.”

(Reuters) – Fears are growing in the United States about Ebola with about 200 airline cabin cleaners walking off the job in New York and some lawmakers demanding the government ban travelers from the West African countries hit hardest by the virus. “The nation is frightened, and people are frightened of this disease,” the U.S. cabinet secretary for health, Sylvia Burwell, said on Thursday, a day after the death in Texas of the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Burwell told a news conference that people were frightened because Ebola “has a very high mortality rate. They’re frightened because they need to learn and understand what the facts are about that disease.”

As the government prepares to start screening passengers from West Africa for fever at five major airports over the next week, cleaners at New York’s LaGuardia Airport staged a one-day work stoppage over what they say is insufficient protection for workers whose jobs include cleaning up vomit and bathrooms. The cleaners will return to work Thursday night. U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said the goal was to expand airport screenings for Ebola internationally to “as many different checkpoints as possible.” The Ebola virus causes hemorrhagic fever and is spread through direct contact with body fluids from an infected person, who would suffer severe bouts of vomiting and diarrhea. “We are always with feces and near garbage,” Sharekul Islam, 20, whose job cleaning airplane cabins at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport regularly exposes him to the type of waste and fluids that can transmit Ebola.

Twenty-three Republican and three Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives signed a letter to President Barack Obama asking the State Department to impose a travel ban and restrict visas issued to citizens of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The Oct. 8-dated letter also asked U.S. health and border control officials to consider quarantine of 21 days for anyone who arrives from the affected nations after being exposed to Ebola, the period in which they would show signs of illness. It said the World Health Organization “is an organization of unelected bureaucrats and political appointees of foreign countries. It has no duty to protect the lives and well-being of Americans, as you do.” WHO says nearly 4,000 people have died in the worst Ebola outbreak on record, with a death toll averaging about 50 percent of cases since March. An unrelated outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has killed dozens.

Shares in Lakeland Industries, a maker of suits to wear while handling hazardous materials, rose more than 50 percent on Thursday on expectations of the disease spreading. A Liberian man who flew on commercial flights from his home country on Sept. 19 and died in Dallas, Texas on Wednesday morning had had contact in Liberia with a woman who later died of the disease. In other examples of the concern over Ebola, a sheriff’s deputy was admitted to hospital Wednesday after saying he may have been exposed to the Liberian man. The deputy tested negative for Ebola, the state health department said. And on Wednesday, jail officials in Kenosha County, Wisconsin moved a female Immigration Customs Enforcement detainee into medical isolation after learning she was from Liberia, and despite her showing no symptoms of the virus, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Her temperature was taken twice and she was monitored by nurses, the department said. Separately in Washington, a Republican in the U.S. Senate is still holding up most of $750 million from the Defense Department’s request to shift $1 billion in war funds to fight Ebola. Senator James Inhofe’s approval as the top Republican on the Senate Armed Forces Committee is needed, although other senior Republicans said they backed the funds. U.S. health officials, while answering questions about mistakes in the treatment of Liberian man Thomas Eric Duncan in Dallas and overall preparedness for Ebola patients, have emphasized the need to tackle the virus at its source in West Africa. “This is a fluid and heterogeneous epidemic. It is changing quickly and it’s going to be a long fight,” Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday at a high-level meeting of major donors at the World Bank. Frieden compared Ebola to AIDS and said, “Speed is the most important variable here. This is controllable and this was preventable.”

A Spanish nurse is in serious condition in Madrid with Ebola after treating a priest who was repatriated from West Africa and died of the disease, the first reported transmission outside of the region. A British man suspected of contracting the virus died in Macedonia, a government official said on Thursday.

**BREAKING** Ebola Patient in Dallas Has Died – Reports

Above is what I heard that Thomas Duncan in Dallas had sadly died due to Ebola. Please note I put ‘Reports’ so I am only sharing what Israel (Mossad) the Israeli Intelligence Community have reported via a Reuters reporter. I read some reports and watched a You Tube video that claimed when Mr Duncan arrived at Texas Health Presbyterian, after being sent home 1st time, when he came back a second time showing major symptoms that he was sick several times in the building and in a lift, the people who cleaned the sick up wore no vital health equipment. I understand now why American people were angry. Months ago the UK and many other European Countries had stopped Air Travel to or from some areas in West Africa. I think the time to restrict ALL Air travel, Worldwide is a very possible outcome, lets hope this doesn’t happen. There are many unconfirmed reports of Ebola affecting others all over the World, the latest two cases being a Spanish nurse and a young boy in Miami, both are in the link above. There are now 5 cases of American people with Ebola, the death toll is climbing to 10,000 quickly, below is a link to a firm cleaning Mr Duncan’s home


(Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Monday that the government would develop expanded screening of airline passengers for Ebola, both in the West African countries hit by the disease and the United States. The first patient diagnosed with the disease on U.S. soil, Thomas Eric Duncan, remained in critical condition in a Dallas hospital, as Obama was briefed by agencies involved in fighting the spread of the deadly virus.

The president said it was important to follow existing protocols strictly. “But we’re also going to be working on protocols to do additional passenger screening, both at the source and here in the United States,” Obama said. However, the White House said that a ban on travel from West African countries, which some U.S. officials have called for, would slow the fight against Ebola.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said officials did not want to impede transport systems used to send supplies and personnel to the hardest-hit countries in West Africa, so a travel ban was not being considered. Airlines for America, a Washington-based trade group, separately said it would meet health and safety officials on Monday to discuss whether additional screening procedures anywhere in the world might help improve on those already in place.

Authorities in the United States and the public are on alert following Duncan’s diagnosis just over a week ago, raising concerns that the worst epidemic of Ebola on record could spread from West Africa. Duncan – who flew to the United States via Brussels and Washington from Liberia after helping a woman who later died of Ebola – is fighting for his life in a Dallas hospital. The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital initially sent him away with antibiotics, only to have him return two days later in an ambulance.

Via You Tube – The White House

Health officials said none of the 10 people who were being monitored after having had direct contact with Duncan are so far showing signs of Ebola symptoms. Ebola, which can cause fever, vomiting and diarrhea, spreads through contact with bodily fluids such as blood or saliva. Concern about the virus is also high in Europe, where the first case of Ebola being contracted outside of West Africa was reported on Monday. Spanish health officials said a nurse who treated a priest repatriated to Madrid with Ebola last month, and who died of the disease, had also been infected.

Texas Health Presbyterian said on Monday has been receiving the experimental drug brincidofovir since Saturday. The drug was developed by Chimerix Inc, which said it has been tested in more than 1,000 patients without raising safety concerns. “Chimerix has brincidofovir tablets available for immediate use in clinical trials,” the company said in a statement.

People leaving Ebola-affected countries are asked to fill out a questionnaire on whether they have symptoms such as a high fever and whether or not they have had any contact with someone who was diagnosed with Ebola. In Liberia, at least, they also are scanned for fever. Obama said on Monday that “the chances of an outbreak – of an epidemic here are extraordinarily low.” He also said some other countries were not doing enough to fight the disease at its source in West Africa.

“I’ll be honest with you: Although we have seen interest on the part of the international community, we have not seen other countries step up,” the president said. “We’ve had some small countries that are punching above their weight on this but we’ve got some large countries that aren’t doing enough.”


Several health experts and lawmakers have asked the administration to consider enhancing U.S. airport and customs screenings, including checking travelers using handheld fever scanners. Texas Governor Rick Perry, announcing the formation of a state task force on infectious diseases Monday, said that there were “mistakes” with handling the Ebola diagnosis in Dallas, but defended the state’s overall public health management.

“I stand by the fact that the process is working,” Perry said. “We don’t have an outbreak. We have one event that is being handled properly.”Perry also called for enhanced screening procedures by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents, including “obtaining more information about people who are coming from affected areas and taking appropriate steps upon arrival.” The death toll from the disease has been rising in three impoverished West African countries: Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. The current Ebola outbreak has killed at least 3,439 people since it began in March, out of nearly 7,500 confirmed, probable and suspected cases.

In addition to those three countries, the tally includes Nigeria and Senegal, where Ebola is believed to have been contained, and the one case in the United States.

Meanwhile, the fifth American to contract Ebola in West Africa arrived in the United States for treatment on Monday. A private plane carrying Ashoka Mukpo, 33, a freelance television cameraman for NBC News, landed in Omaha from Liberia and was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center.
