CDC Designates El Paso an Ebola Quarantine Site
KVIA-TV ^ | Thursday, July 31, 2014 | Darren Hunt

Posted on 07/31/2014 8:43:42 PM PDT by kristinn

The Centers for Disease Control has designated El Paso as one of 20 quarantine stations for the ebola virus.

The Sun City is part of a comprehensive system designed to prevent the spread of the disease in the United States.

While ebola has never been detected in the U.S., that doesn't mean it can't make its way to the country. The biggest concern is at airports with international flights and ports of entry, which there are a lot of in the Borderland.

SNIP

The CDC released a map showing the 20 quarantine stations designated across the country, including El Paso, mostly where international travelers arrive. The closest ones are in San Diego and Dallas.

SNIP

El Paso International Airport officials confirmed that it is a designated CDC quarantine site, but only in the event the CDC activates it.

In the unlikely event there were an ebola scare in the Borderland, bi-national communication between the CDC and Mexico's Department of Health would be key to keeping it contained.

Wrong. There is a US doctor who treated Ebola victims in Sierra Leonne who is in a Texas hospital right now.

Evidently, being on the border....they have a case they aren’t talking about and it’s in El Paso, why else would such a place be a quarantine site? El Paso may have exposure.

That’s just hunky dory.

First flood the state with illegal immigrants then mix a few Ebola sufferers in.

If I didn’t know better I would think that Barack is mad at Texas (and Perry). /s

Obama is bringing them by as fast as he can,
escorted by DH”S”. The EXEMPT do not care,
as it will give them Marshal law and more power.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

I have little worry this will spread MUCH in the US, but there is the potential for panic and widespread disruption caused by panic.

“including El Paso, mostly where international travelers arrive.” You mean “international travelers” don't arrive anywhere else? What is wrong with this administration? Everything is wrong, nothing makes sense, everything is upside down. For God sakes, the time is right for throwing out anyone associated with this crap. I could have stated it stronger but I refrained.

Despite all the criticism of Pres. G.W. Bush, one of his goals was to stop terrorism at its source. Anyone with common sense would feel the same about ebola, i.e. stop it at its source. Bringing someone into the US suffering from ebola is playing ebola roulette, and the American people, North America, the Western Hemisphere should not take the risk. In spite of all the hue and cry that we have such impenetrable research sites and safety measures, we should NOT invite something so lethal to this country!

"The incubation period, that is, the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 days. "

21 days is going to be a REAL problem.

Out of 30, there’s TWO in Texas. Every story out today has proven to me they know it’s here and it’s too late to shut the barn door on illegals and international flights. That’s also why they’re not worried about bringing in already infected Nancy Whatshername. Just in time for the start of the school year. All thanks to hussein.

Four such facilities suddenly grew to 20. Someone is lying and I’m afraid we all know who and why.

I generally agree with what you say. The rate of infection, and the anecdotal evidence of the circumstances of infection, scream "out of control". However, I don't think that they are bringing the doctors home because they figure that it doesn't make any difference. Remember that politicians and bureaucrats worry more about optics than anything else. To bring them home, and then have reports of people infected state-side, would make them appear culpable, even if it really didn't make any difference.

Might want to ping the TX list. One Ebola facility in El Paso and another in Dallas.

Also, a little correction to the below link on illegal alien camps - a refurbished illegal alien men’s facility into a women and children’s facility in Karnes City and another facility refurbished to house just women in Taylor. Smells like they’re already at Stage 2 to reunite kids with their mothers. Stage 3 would probably be bringing over fathers and all the cousins. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3187545/posts

They have the highest immunity, probably... due to the proximity of Juarez.

The politicians and bureaucrats brought Bergdahl home and tried to their hardest to give him a hero’s welcome. Then there’s the CIA admitting to snooping on Congress’ computers. Throw in all the times the GOP has bent over for this admin and, well, corruption and the fear of blackmail appears stronger than their optics these days.

CDC Designates El Paso an Ebola Quarantine Site

The symbolism is striking.

El Paso means "the pass". When the conquistadors were crossing the mountain range to get to the western part of the continent they named this pass, El Paso.

Once again we have a stranger (Ebola) looking for a pathway into the U.S. and again it starting at "El Paso".

Will it make you feel better if you contract Ebola from a legal citizen or visitor?

I don’t think so. I believe it’s so the CDC can have real human guinea pigs near their research facilities.

I hope all those scientists have their life insurance all paid up.

Go to the CDC website and look for the map showing the 20 Ebola quarantine sites. Examples are El paso and Houston in texas; Atlanta; Miami; San Francisco;and the rest scattered around the perimeter of the country.
