Ship From Liberia With Sick Passengers Docks In Louisiana…But Don’t Worry

When a ship from an Ebola-plagued nation docks on American shores with a crew full of sick passengers, by all means, we should bring them into the country and treat them.

But don’t worry – the CDC figured it was probably fine.

According to a release from the CDC, the ship was reported to have traveled to a port in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and others in Africa. Officials immediately downplayed the likelihood that the sickness was related to an outbreak of Ebola in that part of the world.

“There is no evidence to suggest that the crew members traveled to, or had any contact with anyone from the remote island region of DRC where Ebola cases are occurring. Given this, the chance that the crew member could have Ebola is thought to be exceedingly low,” the CDC stated. (source)

Gee, that sounds like it’s no big deal. And, health professionals used safety precautions, and the only people there were from the CDC. Oh – and the hospital. And there were some guys from the Coast Guard. Also some “various government epidemiologists. They’ve got this handled.

“Our doctors and staff are ready and we have instituted full safety precautions in the unlikely event that this turns out to be something of concern,” said WJMC spokeswoman Taslin Alfonzo. “Everyone is using an abundance of caution until the patients can actually be assessed and appropriately diagnosed.”

Embedded in the hospital’s emergency room is the Region 1 disaster coordinator from the state, Alfonzo said.

Officials in New Orleans confirmed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Coast Guard and various government epidemiologists were at the scene in Belle Chasse, where the vessel, identified as the Marine Phoenix, anchored near the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base. (source)

Besides, it turned out to be malaria, anyway. People just get so worried over nothing.

The crew member was taken to West Jefferson Medical Center for treatment. At least three more crew members, plus the river pilot who boarded the ship, were also expected to arrive at the hospital Wednesday night.

The crew member with malaria was listed in critical condition, Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser said before the diagnosis was made.

Late Wednesday, officials told WDSU that another member of the crew — who had left the ship to seek treatment in the Bahamas — had died. That crew member was also diagnosed with malaria. (source)

 

Anyway, even if it had been Ebola, there’s nothing to get worked up over. The WDSU news guy said so.

“Even if a person on the ship was exposed to Ebola, once they are screened by medical personnel in New Orleans, they would not be able to go anywhere,” said WDSU Medical Editor Dr. Corey Hebert. “Even if they did get out, it has to be spread by direct bodily fluids.” (source)

 

So stop worrying. Our government has an iron grasp on the situation.  You just don’t understand the finer points of all this stuff. They may not be closing our borders. They may be knowingly bringing in people who could be infected. But they have your best interests at heart, and they’ll take care of you.

If you feel otherwise, you’re just one of those crazy preppers or anti-government conspiracy people. You probably even read articles about how to prepare for a pandemic.

Because, it’s just Ebola. Don’t worry.

      Sierra Leone to shut down for 3 days to slow Ebola
      Shoppers in Sierra Leone rushed to stock up on food Thursday ahead of a three-day nationwide shutdown, during which the country’s 6 million people will be confined to their homes while volunteers search house-to-house for Ebola victims in hiding and hand out soap in a
      desperate bid to slow the accelerating outbreak

      check out this theory in overall NWO Obama cartel planning for profit and agenda-21 purposes of rfid chip in vaccines for ebola etc,once it hits this country by chemtrails in certain key locations:
      the chemtrailing has started up in earnest here in northwest usa..I feel the govt is going to add bio toxins like anthrax or even ebola spores to the airial spraying. I think the africa mess with ebola like aids was started there in liberia monrovia because of a globalist aggenda for excuse to send in the troops and seal off areas they want to mine or control. They will also do this in american southwest or eastcoast as a pretext for martial law controls or to postpone the november elections the demoncrats know they will lose..pass this on please. The border crises and illegals and isis were all created to place a blame when our nwo government does this to our people and patriots already gathered in arizona and texas border areas to protect the borders. They will be firxt to be exposed..very important this gets out. Not much you can do against drones dropping gasses filled with toxins or other CNS gasses for controlor killing there is a general in Malaysia that came out in front of a press corp the other day and stated he knew what happened to Malaysian flight mh370…bet he doesn’t last long. check out the story on beforeitsnews.com

      If it’s just Malaria, then why did the River Pilot who boarded the ship at the mouth of the Mississippi have to go to the hospital? Malaria isn’t contagious; it is spread by mosquitoes. Why is he even being evaluated if they are so certain it isn’t Ebola?
