While Obama’s CDC continues to pooh-pooh the danger of Ebola, here’s the latest. Another American is infected.
From Trove.com (original story at International Business Times):
Ashoka Mukpo, a 33-year-old cameraman with NBC News working in Liberia, has tested positive for the Ebola Virus. Mukpo reportedly came down with symptoms like fever and tiredness Wednesday in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital and one of the areas worst hit by the disease.
He was immediately quarantined and tested positive for the disease Thursday. Mukpo will be the fifth American to be evacuated from West Africa for treatment, after Kent Brantly, Nancy Writebol, Rick Sacra and another unnamed American being treated at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.
Mukpo is a freelancer, who was was hired Tuesday to work with chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman on assignment in Monrovia, reporting on the outbreak.
“We are doing everything we can to get him the best care possible,” said NBC News President Deborah Turness. “He will be flown back to the United States for treatment at a medical center that is equipped to handle Ebola patients. We are consulting with the CDC, Medicins Sans Frontieres and others.”
Was this cameraman French kissing Ebola patients? He must have been because we have been reassured incessantly by the Regime that this extremely deadly disease will be stopped in its tracks by our crack CDC. Its director Dr. Tom Frieden has said it time and again. Just this morning, he retweeted a USA Today story trivializing the risk of Ebola.
A guy from the United States isn’t so sure.
Meanwhile Anthony Banbury, the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Representative said that the Ebola virus could mutate to become airborne and that immediate action is needed to contain the spread of the disease.
“The longer it moves around in human hosts in the virulent melting pot that is West Africa, the more chances increase that it could mutate,” Banbury said, according to the Telegraph, adding: “It is a nightmare scenario, and unlikely, but it can’t be ruled out.”
It can’t be ruled out? This guy needs to call Dr. Frieden for some reassurance.
Remember, bringing the 3rd World to the U.S. is deliberate and by design. All Hail, Kind Barack!
