Stark Ebola Warning Update:16.09.2014
CDC: Now is the Time to Prepare.
9/15 - CDC warning hospitals & doctors nationwide that "now is the time to prepare" for eventual Ebola outbreak in the US.
We have been covering the current #Ebola Outbreak (now being called an #Epidemic) since March of this year. Through our Digital Media partner, USA Emergency Broadcasting, we have been stressing the importance of Preparedness and Preparation for Biological Threats and Pandemics.
Well, now the Govt is GETTING SERIOUS about the fight against the 'Exponential Growth' of the Ebola Epidemic in West Africa.
The CDC just updated their Detailed Hospital Preparedness Protocols for Ebola.
Enterovirus D-68 is spreading and the "regular" Flu Season is on its way in the United States.
Recent admissions from several agencies that are rushing to procure these items for their own use. So, if you haven't gotten a stockpile of N95 MedMasks (or the better N99/N100), Goggles, Quarantine Room preps, you might be a little late.

We received the following update tonight from AlertsUSA:
On Monday afternoon AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via text messages to their mobile devices regarding new CDC warnings issued to hospitals, clinics, doctors, infectious disease specialists and other medical professionals nationwide regarding the West Africa Ebola outbreak and the need to prepare, NOW, for the eventual arrival of cases in the U.S..
Specifically, the CDC has issued a 6-page checklist (SEE THIS (PDF)) to U.S. medical facilities and personnel providing specific suggestions to ensure hospitals are able to detect Ebola cases, protect employees, and respond appropriately. The CDC warns that "now is the time to prepare, as it is possible that individuals with EVD in West Africa may travel to the United States, exhibit signs and symptoms of EVD, and present to facilities."
Conflicting CDC Information
The CDC document clearly states "we are not aware of any domestic EVD cases (other than two American citizens who were medically evacuated to the United States)." Really? This would appear to directly contradict AlertsUSA-verified reports of other EVD cases transported to the U.S.. In addition to the two original American missionaries treated in the U.S. in August, a third is currently being treated at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha (SEE THIS) and another new case at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. (SEE THIS).
Further, the CDC statement also directly contradicts information provided by an executive of Phoenix Air Group, the specialized medical air transport company contracted by the State Department to carry out the highly publicized Ebola evacuation flights.
As reported in the last issue of Threat Journal (SEE THIS), Dent Thompson, Vice President of Phoenix Air Group:
Thompson states that medical privacy laws and his company's contract with the State Department prevent him from revealing the actual number of Ebola patients transported, though he does indicate that Phoenix Air has flown 10 Ebola-related missions in the past six weeks.Additional Developments
On July 31, 2014, President Obama signed an amendment to Executive Order #13295 expanding the list of quarantinable communicable diseases to include severe acute respiratory syndromes, "which are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity.." if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza."
On August 6, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control placed their Emergency Operations Center its highest activation level (Level 1), an action it last took during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.
On August 7, 2014, Dr. Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control, stated that the arrival of Ebola in the U.S. is inevitable. "That's primarily because we are all connected and inevitably there will be travelers, American citizens and others who go from these three countries -- or from Lagos if it doesn't get it under control -- and are here with symptoms."
On August 25, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control issued guidance to all U.S. hospitals and mortuaries on the safe handling of human remains of Ebola patients.
On August 28, 2014, the U.S. State Department issued a warning for American citizens traveling abroad that they may be subject to increased screening procedures, travel restrictions, forced quarantine and reduced transportation options in response to the Ebola outbreak.
On September 8, 2014, the World Health Organization warned that new Ebola infections are increasing at an exponential rate and many thousands of new cases are expected this month in Liberia alone.
On September 8, 2014, the DHS Office of the Inspector General made public a report stating that DHS is "ill-prepared" to handle a nationwide pandemic.
On September 12, 2014, Dr. Margaret Chan, Director General of the World Health Organization, stated that Ebola virus cases in West Africa are rising faster than the ability to contain them.
On September 14, 2014, President Obama described the outbreak as a national security threat to the United States and has authorized the deployment of U.S. military forces to the region to assist in the setting up field hospitals and isolation units, to provide protection for medical staff as well as other tasks in an effort to help in the overall international response.
