UPDATE: The Dallas-Fort Worth CBS affiliate is reporting that a patient who was being evaluated for Ebola has tested positive for the virus. According to Reuters, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the case — the first time Ebola has been diagnosed in the United States.
The CDC will host a press conference at its Atlanta headquarters at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Reuters reported. A CDC spokesperson declined to comment to The Washington Post.

ORIGINAL POST: A patient admitted by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas has been placed in strict isolation and is being evaluated for a potential Ebola infection “based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history,” the hospital said in a statement.
The statement did not say what symptoms the patient was displaying, or where the unidentified person had traveled, although the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history is centered in the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, where it has killed more than 3,000 people and infected thousands of others. There is a separate outbreak in Congo.
The Dallas hospital said it is “following all federal Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors.” Test results are expected from the CDC on Tuesday, the statement said.
Zachary Thompson, director of the Dallas County Health and Human Services Department, told the local CBS affiliate that the patient had been in an area where the Ebola virus exists.
“With what we’ve seen in the media and how deadly the Ebola virus is, it is a concern,” Thompson said.
No Ebola cases have been confirmed in the United States, although several American doctors and aid workers who were infected in West Africa have returned home for treatment. One of them, Richard Sacra, was discharged last week from a Nebraska hospital.
Days later, the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda admitted an American physician who was exposed to the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone.
Possible Ebola patients who were tested in New York, California, New Mexico and Miami all tested negative for the virus.

o hell its on now
OK, I’m going shopping to get me some gear now, since I live 30 minutes away from this hospital. If people make fun of me for taking precautions, screw them. This shit better not spread or I’m coming for someone’s ass.
A few more details:
Of course, all sources are saying that there is “no threat.”
Here’s the Press Briefing:
The article says:
“”It is easier to get the flu than to get Ebola, so Dallas County residents should go about their daily activities — [we] don’t feel that there is a public health threat,” said Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson.”
There’s a deadly virus at a Dallas hospital and this bastard says we should go about our daily lives and feels it is not a PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT??!!!! Is he insane????
“There is zero risk of transmission on the flight,” Frieden said. “He was checked for fever before getting on the flight.”
Yea that’s what they all say. I’ll believe that when I see it.
“No doubt” it will be contained”
Like a person who says, “There’s no need to panic” and that’s when you panic!
@NC I guess we know now what all those plastic coffins found in Georgia a few years ago are for…. US…..they say your body turns to liquid after you die from the mess..now they are giving orders to the funeral homes on how to deal with the bodies!
My whole neighborhood is talking about it. Some of the ex-military residents that live in my complex say they already have gas masks and say they are getting ready to up and leave at the first sign that its spreading.
Anyone know what’s a good gas mask to buy? Please let me know, ASAP.
I have the Finnish masks with the adapter to make it accept NATO filter. Affordable and effective as I am told. Canister offset to left for right-hand shooter. Let me know. I have 3 and will share with a fellow patriot. Good luck. You’ll be fine.
Is this one any good?
Filters are not as common to come by but from what I understand will do the trick.
Avg filter for NATO spec lasts appx 8 hours
What about the Israeli civilian military gas mask?
Affordable and effective and joos are good at 2 things. ..murder and survival. Availability of filters is a +!
“The statement did not say what symptoms the patient was displaying, or where the unidentified person had traveled,…or if this ‘person’ even truly exists.”
Yea, I’m wonder about all of that, too (whether it is a farce or not, as information seems somewhat sketchy). But I’m also going slightly into panic mode about what to do here. This place is 30 minutes away from me.
“Dr. Thomas Frieden, Director of the CDC, reported that the infected patient was traveling from Liberia and left on September 19th, arrived in the U.S. on September 20th, but had no symptoms of the disease during that timeframe. On September 24th, the patient developed symptoms, and then sought care on September 26th. On September 28th, the patient was admitted to the hospital in Dallas.”
O.K., Angel, HIM I’ll believe… 🙄
“When asked why the patient was sent home after his initial visit, Frieden explained that the beginnings of Ebola virus can very often appear similar to common illnesses, adding that his office has encouraged emergency department physicians to be particularly careful to take travel histories and conduct rapid testing on anything resembling the illness. Despite complications in care, he stated that he had ‘no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.’ ”
Yes. I believe him, too. LOL
I wish someone would tell me the truth as to what is going on, so I know what the hell to do in the next 24-48 hours.
O.K., but you’re not going to like it, NC.
First, there’s a massive Ebola outbreak. Millions will die. The ‘vaccines’ only seem to make things worse.
Then, when all seems lost, the ‘aliens’ will show up to save all mankind.
Yep,… that’s pretty much what I was going to say…..
You only forgot about the part of,.. bend over,… and kiss your bum goodbye!
JD – US Marines – I’m sure the aliens will present themselves with a Noble looking book in hand, “How To Serve Man”,…… OH!!,… BUT WAIT!!!,.. Its a cook book!!! AHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhh (… my apologies to Rod Serling…)
Although I joke about it all the time, I really believe the ‘alien’ gambit is their ace-in-the-hole. They’ve spent far too much time & effort on it to let it go to waste. We WILL see it eventually, of this I’m certain, since the ‘global warming’ scam failed (serves ’em right for letting that brain-dead moron Kerry spearhead the ‘campaign’).
It was all in the Iron Mountain report:
# 1. Climate change
# 2. Alien invasion
In the words of Spock,
“Live long and prosper”. 😉
Gee…Thanks for the encouragement and support…… 🙄
Told ya you wouldn’t like it.
Heh, heh, heh…
how long before the checkpoints and cordon …
Yes, the ebola scare only works for TPTB if people actually are scared. The whole thing is a scam. If they had a real ebola patient, he/she would be bleeding out of every orifice, and there would be pictures all over the place. The pictures they do show are from the 70’s.
Even if it _were_ a real breakout, you’d be safe if you just upped your vit. c (take to bowel tolerance every 3-4 hours, all day and in the night, if possible).
Notice how all aspects of the story change with each passing day. The part that worries me is that people are so gullible that they will gladly give up some more rights, allow martial law, and then dissidents will be disappeared into a mass grave, their bodies conveniently unrecoverable due to “ebola.” I bet you dollars-to-donuts we won’t be shown any test results either.
So keep your head, NC. And definitely don’t take any vaccines. After what Baxter was caught doing in 2009 (spiked flu shots that killed a bunch of ferrets when tested by an independent lab), it’s a wonder they are still in business. Oh yeah, we live in a police state and TPTB want to kill us, that’s why Baxter is still in business.
Any one who believes that jabbing a toxic cocktail of chemicals, viruses, animal proteins, formaldehyde, and heavy metals into their blood stream prevents disease really deserves what they get. Read about germ theory and what bullshit it is. Defend your minds as well as bodies.
I suggest a book, “good-bye germ theory” by William Trebing.
I also found some youtube videos showing trebing lecturing on germ theory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZzGD54FtQE
and another thing…why on earth would you believe ANYTHING the CDC has to say? They have been caught lying numerous times, most recently about the autism-vaccination link, and the CDC is populated with past and future biotech firm executives. Eg. In 2004, Julie Gerberding, then director of the CDC, declared that not only is there no link between thimerosal in vaccines and autism (based on falsified data and/or flawed epidemiology studies), but she also declared, by fiat, that NO MORE RESEARCH SHOULD BE DONE! That is not science, that is dogmatism. Guess where she went to work after her stint at the CDC? Why, just by chance, she is now the head of the vaccine division at Merck, who makes, what d’ya know? Vaccines!
