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...
Prayers for the good doctor. But, is importing this virus to North America really a good idea?
God bless him....God fully restore him and. Mrs. Writebol.
History will record him as the one who brought ebola to America. Glad I don’t live near Atlanta.
What could possibly go wrong?
With the CDCs recent track record, I do not see this ending well.
I do. (shudder)
Perhaps a chance to study and find a cure. I have to believe his blood will be useful to researchers, especially if he survives. Regarding fears of his entering the country, I believe that the long incubation period makes this disease a very effective covert biological weapon. Better to study now with our advanced equipment than before we have a full blown epidemic.
Dr. Brantly is an American citizen.....NOT an illegal
His transport was arranged by Franklin Graham...(Billy Graham’s son) who heads up Samaritan Purse......the evangelical mission to other countries.
Dr. Brantly was in Africa with Samaritans Purse......
along with Graham, the State Dept and CDC also signed off on this
if I were you, I. would worry more about the multi country Afican nations conference starting in DC next week!!!!
I am thinking the woman must be in better shape? Trying to decide how they decided who to bring first.
Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Keep him out!
Brantly will be the scapegoat when people begin getting ill due to lax immigration.
Graham’s organization will forever associated with any outbreak in the US.
