“Dr Kent Brantly, 33, is being treated in a special isolation ward in Atlanta and was able to walk with help from an ambulance.”

okay....

Im thinking that the meaning of ambulance in the U.K. may not match meaning of the word in common use here in the USA.

it is good to know that survival is possible...nonetheless

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...

The word ambulance is the same in the UK as here in the U.S., as far as I know. That sentence is just awkwardly punctuate. I think the sentence should read:

“Dr. Kent Brantly, 33, is being treated in a special isolation ward in Atlanta and was able to walk, with help, from an ambulance.”

It was Dr. Tom Frieden, Director of the CDC, who said Dr. Brandtly is improving. I don’t know that the meaning of the word ambulance is relevant.

I don't think anyone at FR wishes bad things for the Dr. or the other American that has come down with this virus. Regardless of how this turns out, this was a potentially dumb and dangerous decision to bring them here for treatment.

Good point. Political correctness does not correlate with scientific necessities when dealing with serious infectious diseases. Why for instance has Obama, despite his vaunted pen and phone, continued to allow commercial flights in and out of endemic areas of West Africa?

Why not complete the plan with the U.S., not only being completely flooded by the 3rd world, but with their vile diseases to match...

Only then will people feel the pain...Plus it provides government more power to control movement, travel, and the need to monitor and control everyone and everything.

It wasn’t dumb and it isn’t dangerous, do you really think that Ebola is going to come here through this Ebola doctor being treated at our Ebola center, is that how you think Ebola will find it’s way into America?

Having an Ebola doctor as their first patient seems to be about as good as it can get for our first domestic, hands on experience.

This ebola doctor was treating ebola patients, and he is supposed to know how to do that safely.

How did he catch it ?

Ya, we need more experience with Ebola.

In fact if this doctor will help the situation, just think of how much good it will do if we bring hundreds more in and then spread them out so other hospitals can feel the experience too!

Brilliant!

“Compositions are provided that are operable as immunogens to elicit an immune response or protection from EboBun challenge in a subject such as a primate. Inventive methods are directed to detection and treatment of EboBun infection.”

They have isolated various molecules and proteins of a strain of the Ebola virus in an effort to detect and treat it. It’s the first step for new development in any new vaccine. I see no reason for the paranoia folks are spreading about this patent. People see “patent on Ebola virus” and freak out because they don’t understand how medical and pharmaceutical R&D works.

You can’t be that clueless, almost anyone can see the benefit of our Ebola people and unit, having a fellow doctor that has been treating Ebola in Africa, as their first patient.

It is vastly superior to some non English speaking peasant that shows up in Tucson.

In 1995 Congolese doctors saved 7 of 8 patients by giving all 8, blood from Ebola survivors.

This doctor received blood donated from one of his surviving patients.

His wife and kids fly to the US without him although they all were supposed to come for a wedding for his relative and to meet his newborn nephew. Practically the next day, BAM! he is hospitalized with Ebola and fading fast while on African soil. Then the Almighty Wise Won ok’s him to be brought home. The msm show him (or someone) standing up and walking across GRAVEL in a Tyvek suit. Now, mere hours later he’s improving so much it’s gone viral across the networks. I said from the beginning, if either or both manage to survive while on US soil, it will open the gates to every turd world disease out there. Something smells. Follow the money.

was able to walk, with help, from an ambulance

Since when does a hospital allow anyone coming in by ambulance to walk in? Talk about an insurance liability and a whole lot of explainin' to do if he fell and ripped his suit. Since when do ambulances park so far away from the door that patients have to walk across gravel? There is speculation he (or whomever) was wearing rubber boots. If so, then per the photos, they were inside the Tyvek suit. So, someone please tell me if the gravel punchured the suit it wouldn't totally defeat the purpose.

The article in naturalnews that I mentioned in a post above does make it clear about $$$$$$ being a motivation here. In addition to government control etc. Patent a virus ?

Someplace else I dont recall where, I read about an established company that was into doing something I think for immunization - think FLU PANDEMIC - GET YOUR SHOTS
