Dallas Ambulance Crew Who Brought Ebola Patient to Hospital Is Quarantined

The Dallas Fire-Rescue ambulance crew who transported the man infected with Ebola to the hospital have tested negative for the Ebola virus, according to the City of Dallas.

The City of Dallas said Tuesday that the crew took all safety precautions and was isolated and tested following the discovery.

The three members of the ambulance crew are restricted to their homes while their conditions are observed and while the virus’ incubation period passes.

The patient was vomiting when the ambulance got to the hospital, Dallas city spokeswoman Sana Syed said.

The ambulance crew is among 12 to 18 people being monitored after exposure to the man. Some are members of his family, but not all, Syed said.

Should the ambulance crew members develop symptoms, investigators will then determine with whom they came into contact and monitor those people for symptoms as well.

The ambulance used to transport the man has been pulled from service at Station 37 in 6700 block of Greenville Avenue.

Chopper 5 showed Dallas Fire-Rescue ambulance 37 parked away from all other vehicles at the training center in the 5000 block of Dolphin Road. The ambulance was wrapped in red caution tape and blocked in.

The City of Dallas said it has activated the city’s Emergency Operations Center and is on Level 2: High Readiness after receiving confirmation that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The person moved to Dallas from Liberia a week ago.

    also:

    the ENTIRE MASS MEDIA is hyping Ebola (like Ed SNOW-don)
    Executive orders have been written to execute “National Security”….

    The EXCUSE that the “govt” is doing nothing only helps prove my point
    (which is not a theory btw: the Govt / media / NGOs created the theory… I
    am only debunking it!) That is: There is little to no threat from “EBOLA”. It’s nothing more than a distraction, and a grand chess move by Big Energy, PR handlers, and neo -fascists!)

    Recent history is on my side.

    Bird Flu = HOAX
    Pig Flu = HOAX

    Ebola = anyone with Flu symptoms? where are the bodies? (other than the few, which could be anything….) Its an incurable 50 – 90% death sentence. Millions infected says UN?

    “Ebola virus disease (EVD), Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), or simply Ebola is a disease of humans and other primates caused by an ebolavirus. Symptoms start two days to three weeks after contracting the virus, with a fever, sore throat, muscle pain, and headaches. Typically, vomiting, diarrhea, and rash follow, along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys. Around this time, affected people may begin to bleed both within the body and externally.
    The virus may be acquired upon contact with blood or bodily fluids of an infected animal. Spreading through the air has not been documented in the natural environment”

    No specific treatment for the disease is yet available. Efforts to help those who are infected are supportive and include giving either oral rehydration therapy (slightly sweet and salty water to drink) or intravenous fluids. The disease has a high risk of death, killing between 50% and 90% of those infected with the virus

    Efforts are under way to develop a vaccine; however, none yet exists.

    YET:

    All this year “Doctors without Borders” – founded / funded by the recently deceased Richard Rockefeller…. was “vaccinating” the populace in Africa for “EBOLA” – The people were attacking those vaccination centers and accusing them of infecting the indigenous lining up for them…

    CONAKRY, Guinea – A Red Cross team was attacked while collecting bodies believed to be infected with Ebola in southeastern Guinea, the latest in a string of assaults that are hindering efforts to control West Africa’s current outbreak.

    One Red Cross worker is recovering after being wounded in in the neck in Tuesday’s attack in Forecariah, according to Benoit Carpentier, a spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

    Family members of the dead initially set upon the six volunteers and vandalized their cars, said Mariam Barry, a resident. Eventually a crowd gathered and headed to the regional health office, where they threw rocks at the building.

    The attack is the most recent in a series that have plagued teams working to bury bodies, provide information about Ebola and disinfect public places. The most shocking to date was the abduction and killing last week of a team of several health officials and journalists in Guinea who were educating people on how to avoid contracting Ebola. (cause they were there to help – right/)

    Ebola is believed to have infected more than 5,800 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal. The outbreak has grown into the world’s largest ever for the disease, partially because it went undetected for months, began in a highly mobile area and has spread to densely populated West African cities. Resistance to efforts to control the disease — from outright denials that Ebola exists to fears that the very people sent to combat it are in fact carriers — has frustrated efforts to end or even slow the disease’s spread in all three of the most affected countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, say officials.

    There are deeply held beliefs about how dead bodies should be treated and buried in the region and teams that are forced to interfere with those practices are often targeted, said the Red Cross spokesman, Carpentier. Much of the resistance is in remote, insular areas, where attitudes change slowly — a difficult task even on issues that aren’t so sensitive as burials.

    “You need to reach almost one person by one person, so they all understand and there’s not one person who doesn’t believe and they drag the entire village around by spreading wrong messages,” he said.

    The conventional methods used to control Ebola — isolating sick people and tracing all their contacts — are buckling under the sheer size of the outbreak. Public health experts are beginning to hope that vaccines now being tested might eventually make an impact.

    There is currently no licensed treatment or vaccine for Ebola, although some patients have received experimental drugs and scientists are now testing two vaccines.

    Previously experts had said a drug or vaccine was unlikely to be ready in time to help in this outbreak. But on Wednesday, the World Health Organization said projected year-end quantities of vaccines could be large enough to have some impact on controlling the disease.

    That would make this the first Ebola outbreak in history to be tackled with vaccines or medicines.

    “It may be that without a vaccine, we may not be able to stop this epidemic,” said Dr. Peter Piot, director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a co-discoverer of Ebola. “In this outbreak, we are reaching the limit of what classic containment measures can achieve.”

    Even if vaccines and treatments aren’t ready in time for this outbreak, scientists must prepare for the next one, said Jeremy Farrar, director of Welcome Trust.

    “We must be in a position where this is the last outbreak of Ebola where we do not have any vaccines or treatments available,” he said.
