How did a health worker in Dallas wearing full protective gear catch Ebola if the virus “does not spread easily”? Just last week, Barack Obama declared to the public that you cannot get Ebola “sitting next to someone on a bus”, and yet a nurse in protective gear that was taking extreme precautions to avoid being exposed to the disease has just caught it. The head of the CDC says that there must have been a “breach in protocol” somewhere, because of course the CDC guidelines regarding the transmission of this virus could never be wrong. Even with everything that has happened, our public officials are still insisting that Ebola is “difficult to catch”. But could it be possible that they are wrong? More than 200 health workers over in Africa that were treating Ebola patients in full protective gear have ended up contracting Ebola themselves. More than 100 of them have died. We were told that would never happen in the United States because we are so much more advanced than they are over in Africa. But now it has happened. Our very first Ebola case passed the virus to a health worker that was treating him. If Ebola can be transmitted to health workers this easily, what chance is the general public going to have during a full-blown Ebola pandemic?
The misinformation that the U.S. government continues to put out is absolutely staggering. We are being led to believe that you basically have to slather yourself in someone’s body fluids in order to catch Ebola from them. Just consider what Barack Obama said just last week…
“First, Ebola is not spread through the air like the flu,” Obama said in the video released by the White House Thursday. “You cannot get it through casual contact like sitting next to someone one a bus. You cannot get it from another person until they start showing symptoms of the disease, like fever.”
Obama also said that “the most common way you can get Ebola is by touching the body fluids of someone who is sick or has died from it, like their sweat, saliva or blood, or through a contaminated item like a needle.”
The mainstream media is saying the same thing.
In fact, CNN insists that Ebola is “difficult to catch”…
Ebola is actually difficult to catch. People are at risk if they come into very close contact with the blood, saliva, sweat, feces, semen, vomit or soiled clothing of an Ebola patient, or if they travel to affected areas in West Africa and come into contact with someone who has Ebola.
If Ebola is indeed “difficult to catch”, then why are so many health workers wearing protective suits getting the disease?
Perhaps our public officials and the mainstream media should be honest and admit that there is much about this virus that we simply do not know.
