Official: 5 kids had contact with Ebola patient

Yahoo News

DALLAS (AP) — Authorities say five students who had contact with a man diagnosed with Ebola in Dallas are being monitored but are showing no symptoms of the disease.

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said Wednesday that the students were in school this week after possibly being in contact with the man over the weekend.  

But he says they’re showing no symptoms and are now being monitored at home. Health officials say the disease is only spread by people with symptoms, such as diarrhea or vomiting.

As an added precaution, Miles says additional health and custodial staff will be at the five schools the students attend.

The unidentified man is the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. He’s been in isolation at a Dallas hospital since Sunday.

  1. Why the hell are they still not releasing the name of the person infected? What difference does the name make? They are totally hiding something. I’m beginning to think this is more and more a hoax and fearmongering than it is real.

    Was there supposed to be a drill scheduled or something this week in Dallas and this is it, like the drill with the Pennsylvania shooter? This is getting annoying. They have ambulance crews quarantined, some other patients and still no names. Transparent MY ASS!! This is sounding more like a show/drill than for real.

    They didn’t hide the identity of the two patients in Atlanta, so why are they hiding the identity of this person? It makes no sense. It’s becoming more and more a production and since the MSM is all over it, that only makes it appear even more of a production.

      1. Thanks for the links, Angel.

        Dammit! I was hoping it would be just a drill, but if they have released a name, that “slightly” screws that theory.

        Also, look at how Perry reads and talks in that NBC video. He looks like a complete retard who has no idea what he’s saying and is just reading words off a script without any thought of what they mean. Like a brain dead zombie. He looks completely drunk as his body is moving back and forth in an unsteady fashion. Putting glasses on the idiot doesn’t make him look any more intelligent.

  2. They’re allowing these 5 kids to go to school? Stupid. Give ’em a week off. First they say they don’t know how it’s spread and now it’s only spread if they have symptoms like the runs or are puking? The health official liars really should try to get their stories straight.

    1. UGH! 😡 This is what I’m talking about. Nothing makes sense. They quarantine some of them like the ambulance drivers, but then they let the others who were in contact with them, go to school. And then they say that it doesn’t become contagious until AFTER the symptoms occur? WTF?
