Ebola now in America; Dallas patient confirmed to have carried deadly virus into major U.S. city

by Mike Adams, Health Ranger 

(NaturalNews) The CDC today confirmed the worst fears of many Americans who have been carefully monitoring the Ebola outbreak: the virus is now in America.

A yet-unnamed patient in the Dallas Presbyterian Hospital is definitely confirmed to have carried Ebola into the United States and to have possibly spread it to others. [1]

This is precisely the scenario I have publicly warned about for weeks on the Pandemic Preparedness website at www.BioDefense.com

Ebola patient traveled to Liberia, then flew back to the U.S.

The announcement of the infection status of the patient was delayed until the CDC could hastily organize a press conference. During that conference, it was confirmed the patient traveled to Liberia where he acquired the virus. He returned to the United States via air travel, and then carried the virus for another 10 days in the U.S. before being diagnosed with Ebola.

During this time, of course, he may have spread the virus to others. Because the incubation time of the Ebola virus is 2 - 21 days, we may not know the full extent of the spread of this infection -- if any -- for up to three weeks.

"We received in our laboratory today specimens from the individual, tested them and they tested positive for Ebola. The State of Texas also operates a laboratory that found the same results," CDC director Thomas Frieden said in a widely-televised press conference. The patient is currently said to be "critically ill."

The CDC is now scrambling to attempt to identify all the people with whom the confirmed Ebola carrier has made contact over the last 10 days. These people may include:

• Fellow passengers on the airplanes
• Family members
• Friends
• Business associated
• Paramedics
• Hospital staff
• Hospital patients

U.S. government remains in state of denial about pandemic infection risk

Frieden expressed high confidence that this particular Ebola infection would be immediately contained. Then again, President Obama just said a few weeks ago that the chance of Ebola ever arriving in America was "unlikely." But now it's here.

Texas health officials say they are well equipped to handle Ebola infections and that they are committed to keeping Texas safe. At the same time, U.S. medical staff have proven that they are unable to stop the spread of superbugs in U.S. hospitals, calling into question the ability of those same people to stop the spread of Ebola if it spreads beyond a small, contained group. (Superbugs like MRSA, c.diff and CRE are rampant across U.S. hospitals.)

U.S. government has no way to stop more people from bringing Ebola to U.S. cities

Even if this one particular Ebola outbreak is quickly contained, it has proven that Ebola patients can simply walk right into the United States -- or fly in, in this case -- without any effort at all.

The U.S. government, in other words, is completely unprepared to deal with an influx of infected Ebola patients. That this first Ebola patient has been confirmed in Dallas now shatters the delusion that America is somehow immune to the Ebola outbreak currently ravaging Africa and believed to be on track to infect 1.4 million patients by the end of January.

What we now know with 100% certainty is that Ebola has crossed the Atlantic ocean and transplanted itself into a large U.S. city where it festered for 10 days before being identified. The question on everyone's mind now is simply this: How can the U.S. government possibly stop this from happening again?

The answer is that it can't.

Get prepared now. Listen to the free audio course I've produced and released at no charge at www.BioDefense.com

If you want to know what's really coming, listen to this course. I have accurately and publicly predicted almost every step of this outbreak, including medical martial law, forced quarantines in Sierra Leone, food shortages in the quarantine zones and much more. I can tell you almost exactly what's going to happen in America of Ebola spreads beyond containment. No one in the mainstream media will dare print or broadcast the information you'll find at www.BioDefense.com
