ROSWELL, GA - CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?
Excerpt, read the rest at cbs46
Well the outbreak is here now. In Texas. And fortunately it wasn’t the military that brought it back.
However, they keep pushing the line that it’s not contagious unless there is fever and symptoms. And my bet that is how the epidemic got out of control in the first place.
They should quarantine everyone that guy was on a flight with, and everyone he’s had contact with, whether he was showing symptoms or not.
expecting something.....nah could`t be.../s
Yeah, I’m maybe thirty miles away from that case.
wow, just wow.
We need a MUCH MUCH MUCH better plan for ebola infested corpses, sending them to the local funeral home is a VERY BAD IDEA.
Is this going to be the crowning disaster of Obama’s tenure? A nationwide ebola outbreak?
I want to hide under the bed.
I work for a hospital firm. The other day, I asked if a hazmat suit was acceptable under the dress code. They laughed and said, maybe if you paint it look like a suit.
I haven't seen anything that would support that claim. Have proof?
Terrific. An embalmer lives just across the street from me.
Ebola turns your internal organs to mush and makes your skin slough off in big piles. Blood can leak out of every orifice.
Honestly, you think that type of cadaver if a bad idea for a funeral home? My, are you judgemental! What have you got against dead people? You some kind of necrophobe?
Why does the CDC own a patent on Ebola invention?
But I’m sure there’s virtually no chance they’ll ever need to take these precautions. /s

Bring Out Your Dead
Were gonna need
a bigger cart!
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...
Merely a precaution...
The top in their field doctors who’ve been infected were taking precautions too!
I feel SO much better knowing the CDC can issue guidelines to help control the handling of bodies after...
...wait a minute...
What, EXACTLY, does the CDC do again?
The low info voter isn't suppose to realize the guidelines were ready to be sent before ebola ever got here.
How about guidelines for airliners - telling them NOT to fly to Africa...
Patient ZERO got here two weeks ago... shall we also quarantine everyone who works or lives with all the people who were on the plane?
You know those camps "Homeland" built for the illegal 'immigrants'? That's how they might be used...
Take a look. I thought it was crazy, until, maybe, today; I also remember Obama, after the first debate with Romney when obama, seeming despondent, "I don't know if I can do this." Connection......?????? I do not know.
