Some questions about how we are responding to Ebola…

The “experts” claim how difficult catching the Ebola virus is – that we practically have to exchange sweat to catch it.  Dr. Siegel on FOX even claimed that kissing won’t spread it.

This photo represents how difficult it is to catch Ebola…if you have a suit like these…

Why do doctors who treat Ebola patients have to wear suits like these?  Do they know something about Ebola that the likes of Dr. Siegel are not telling us?

If Ebola is so difficult to transmit, how come well-trained US doctors treating Ebola in Africa contracted the disease?

If Ebola is so difficult to transmit, how come these infected missionary doctors were transported in aircraft insulted with three layers of protection?

I suspect the motives of people whose highest priority is to protect people in other nations.  During his congressional hearing, one of the cured missionary doctors insisted  the United States government send troops and millions of dollars to Africa to build infrastructure in hot zones where the natives are suspicious of and resent outside influences.  He held no concern or regard for safeguards in the United States.  His priorities were for his favorite missionary activity.  To hell with us over here.  He couldn’t care less.  And our government salivated all over his suggestion.  Two days later, 3,000 US soldiers were on their way.

In the meantime, we have not restricted incoming flights from infected African nations. Why not?  Because, as the CDC spokesman said, “It is not my call.”  Here is more of the illogic of what’s happening as reported by Breitbart:

CDC Spokesman Dave Daigle stated that the US would not be preventing flights from countries with massive outbreaks of the Ebola virus from coming in to the United States, despite seemingly admitting that the case of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan showed that airport screening cannot catch every case of Ebola…

When asked whether he would recommend the US simply not allow flights from countries like Sierra Leone and Liberia, Daigle responded, “I don't think so, and that’s certainly not, I'm not even sure if that’s a CDC call.”

And our borders remain as porous as ever, despite the likelihood that a polio-like respiratory disease that is spreading like wildfire among our children is suspected of being spread by illegals.

We are reminded that all staff of US hospitals have been trained in how to identify and isolate those who are suspected of symptoms of Ebola.  Then why did Presbyterian Hospital in Texas send the infected man home from the emergency room after he told her that he recently arrived from Liberia?  He then had three more days to spread the disease.  Here’s an example of CYA for the textbooks:

Hospital officials defended the initial handling of Duncan, issuing a statement describing his fever as "low-grade," and insisting "his condition did not warrant admission." They added that they are still investigating why Duncan's travel history was not conveyed to the doctors who sent him home. Hospital epidemiologist Dr. Edward Goodman told the Associated Press that the patient did not show the riskier symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea.

If several school children in Texas are suspected of coming in contact with one or more Ebola carriers, why aren’t classes in those schools suspended for the requisite 21 days instead of leaving it up to panicked parents to do the smart thing and pull their kids from class?

The most effective way to destroy the public trust in the medical community and our government is to over promise and under deliver.  And that is exactly what they are doing.  If I can spend a few minutes a day over several weeks to come up with a significant list of inconsistencies between medical rhetoric and observable reality, then I suspect most of the rest of our population is noticing the same inconsistencies.  And that is a trigger for failing trust and potential panic.
