Frisco officials say the chances are small that the sheriff’s deputy who fell ill after visiting Thomas Eric Duncan’s apartment last week has Ebola.
“The risk is minimal,” said Frisco’s Mayor Maher Maso, but they are proceeding “with an abundance of caution.”
Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said that this does not appear to be a case of Ebola. He isn’t showing typical symptoms and never came in direct contact with Duncan.
Frisco Fire Chief Mark Piland says the deputy is not among the 48 direct and indirect contacts being monitored closely, and health officials are treating this “as a low-risk event.” He says the patient told workers at CareNow, the Frisco urgent care facility where he went Wednesday, that he had been in Duncan’s apartment.
Piland said the patient was “minus a few” symptoms of Ebola, but he exhibited enough to trigger the preliminary screening process. As a result, he’ll be monitored for 48 hours.
Which means he isn’t yet barfing his lower intestines out his ears. Of course, until day before yesterday West Africans were on the honor system, which would be insane if they weren’t more honest than common everyday old human beings.
This has been linked all over the place, but for the sake of continuity, former Rosie antivirus Elisabeth Hasselbeck:
We’re worried about the government stabilities of a few sixteenth-rate banana republics? Doctor, you have 320 million Americans to protect!
It occurs to the RG that this is a win-win for Barack Obama. If he has misjudged the severity of risk to the American public and we have a nationwide pandemic, he gets to declare marshal law, and, wow! His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Barack Obama Dada, Emperor of all he Surveys.
I don’t think that’s going to happen, you understand, but it’s fairly evident that Barack and his Chicago thugs have very little interest in guarding the nation against the spread of this disease.
