Ebola terror at Gatwick as passenger collapses and dies getting off Sierra Leone flight
Mirror.co ^ | Aug 03, 2014 | Rebecca Younger, Andy Lines

Airport staff tonight told of their fears of an Ebola outbreak after a passenger from Sierra Leone collapsed and died as she got off a plane at Gatwick.

Workers said they were terrified the virus could spread globally through the busy international hub from the West African country which is in the grip of the deadly epidemic.

The woman, said to be 72, became ill on the gangway after she left a Gambia Bird jet with 128 passengers on board. She died in hospital.

Well now, I wonder what this guy has to say about that?

"Ebola’s scary, and it’s understandable that with a deadly disease, people are concerned," says CDC director Tom Frieden, but for those who would have us turn victims away, "the plain truth is, we can stop Ebola. We know how to control it. We’re not going to hermetically seal the borders of the US. We’re reliant and interdependent with the world for travel, for trade, for the economy, for our families and communities."

Because there is no other plausible explanation for the death of a 72 year old West African woman. As a general word of wisdom, you probably should take Daily Mirror articles w a grain of salt.

Here it comes, and it will. Thank you Barry for pretty much destroying our border security at this time, perfect timing I must say. And the fact that he transports the invaders all over the US is especially heartening.

Let’s bring over 50 African heads of state, and their entourages, bodyguards, media, and assistants, for a big
conference in Washington.

Let’s let them fill up the hotels, visit restaurants,
visit tourist sights, and basically come into contact with
thousands of people.

Sounds great...

We need to fly them over to the US for their medical care/s

Would love to see Emory University’s census numbers for this week. If I had any procedure planned there, I would now be hospital shopping.

CDC Head is a POLITICAL OPERATIVE

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Frieden

He was Bloombergs SS Chief in the war on Tobacco and Sugary drinks, a democrat, and a marxist com-symp.

FRIEDEN WOULD RATHER RISK AN EBOLA PANDEMIC IN THE USA THAN PISS OFF HIS MARXIST MASTERS

So they put the PLANE in quarantine—what about the passengers and crew? If they are all exposed (and at this point that’s still an “if”) shouldn’t they be isolated also?

We have got forgotten in the modern world why communities were so historically unwelcome to strangers.

Strangers historically meant the bringing of disease, raiders, or the insertions of dangerous ideologies that would disrupt the balance the community had attained.

World-wide panic is setting in.

This is my concern as well. Panic may well outpace the actual movement of the bug given the effects of social media. This could well take on a life of its own as more and more of these types of occurrences happen....

Multi-culturelism KILLS everything it touches. Our American culture is also in peril.

People are flying all around the world with Ebola and not one country seems
to be stepping up to the plate to stop this insane madness.


I'm not kidding when I say that the Elite in every country wants to downsize
the population of the planet to be more controllable over freedom and the population.
They openly say it, like Obama talking about transforming America, they are not hiding it.

It makes me wonder if all this was planned. No foil hat yet, but when the
death toll reaches 1-million, the planet better go into total lockdown or
the revelation of the Elite will come true, and 2-3 Billion will perish.

Ok, so it wasn’t Ebola, but it doesn’t sound like it was much better. Profuse sweating and vomiting and then death? Is whatever she did have contagious??? Who cares what they call it???

What stood out to me is this:

Reminds me of a shark movie where they don't want to shut down the summer business by telling the tourists that there's something in the water eating people.

Well now, I wonder what this guy has to say about that?

He'll probably say wait till all the facts are in and that it's unlikely the broad actually died of Ebola.....

But then again, that would be contrary to the MSM's attempt to drum up viewership via this contrived Ebola crisis........

I'll start worrying about it when the MSM has to resort to "Global Pandemic" (well, not really since they've certainly abused that term) in order to keep the ratings up.......
