Why Aren't All Our Cowardly, Hysterical Conservatives Demanding Closure of All U.S. Airports Over Deadly Incoming Coronavirus, Just Like They Did Over The Ebola Outbreak?

Recommended Posts

Note that it's midday in Wuhan.   And apparently most or all of the twitter feeds that were providing an on the ground look at what is actually happening have now been shut down.   That's not a good sign either.

Historical Record:

When Ebola broke out In Africa some years ago, our resident hordes of RIGHT-Wing Conservative fairies and buttercups demanded that all U.S. airports be closed.

"CLOSE THEM NOW!!!" they screamed. "Obama is going to kill us all!" 

 

Of course, the CDC, and the SANE Progressive LEFT knew that we could EASILY handle any kind of intercontinental transmission of Ebola from Africa to the States, but the Scaredy-Kitten Conservatives wanted any of the American Health Care anti-Ebola Warriors returning from Africa imprisoned in tents, and worse, began spreading hysteria-driven nonsense about "airborne Ebola" and "the Obama Administration and CDC is LYING to us!!!" gibberish.

 

And, of course, as is ALWAYS the case, the Conservative Hysterical Righties were proven 100% DEAD WRONG, and left holding nothing but an empty sack, as is their predestined socio-cultural Fate.

 

One case of American Ebola resulted in a death, which came solely from it happening to an unfortunate victim who lived in Texas, where learning to use toilet paper is considered genius-level behavior, and displays of buttf ucking stupidity on a Grand Scale is admired and considered preferable.

Sadly, that guy died because the Texas hospital TURNED HIM AWAY in the midst of displaying the end-stage symptoms of Ebola, and worse, ended-up infecting multiple of their own hospital nurses, due to not knowing how to handle and dispose of biological waste.

 

Now, as a REAL AIRBORNE DEADLY VIRUS is plaguing China, and as the first handful of Coronavirus victim-carriers have arrived here in the States........why isn't the Scaredy-Kitten Conservative RIGHT screaming that we BAN all incoming Chinese returnees from coming to America? Why aren't the RIGHTIES demanding that all people coming to America from China be screened and tented and isolated from the population until a 3 or 4 week period of viral-transmission danger has obviously elapsed?  

 

Hmm. Conservatives.

Weird as FUC K.

I guess they only see dangerous health risks when the Black President is in the White House.

 

      

Jesus..... I lost lost 10 IQ points after reading this nonsensical drivel.

Here’s another sign of panic in China …

Chinese Race to Buy Face Masks as Coronavirus Threat Increases


Face mask manufacturers in China are reopening factories shut for the Lunar New Year holiday, as consumers emptied out stock in stores. Chinese people are racing to buy face masks to protect themselves from the new coronavirus.


Manufacturers are promising workers up to four times their normal wages as consumers emptied out stock in stores.


“From what I have heard, the mask shortage is much, much more severe than what the public knows,” said Cao Jun, general manager of mask manufacturer Lanhine. Which has a factory in east China’s Ningbo city.


“Almost all hospital workers nationwide are facing a huge shortage of masks, not just in Wuhan.”


Cao said the firm’s clients were demanding a combined 200 million masks per day. Its normal production rate is 400,000 face masks a day. CMmask, in eastern China told Reuters it was offering workers triple their wages to come back to work.


Our factory is out of stock now, said Hu Qinghui, CMmask’s deputy general manager. We have now extended our working hours to produce more face masks, he said. People are in fear of the coronavirus spreading as hundreds of millions of Chinese travel during the week-long Lunar New Year holiday.

 


Meanwhile, according to this … https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/wuhan-coronavirus-5-more-chinese-cities-in-lockdown-transit-ban-on-56-million-2169490 … there are now 18 cities with travel restrictions with 56 million people under lockdown.   Wonder what those numbers will be tomorrow?

Still {Crickets} from the LF gallery.

 

Let's see what's happened in the last 9 hours?

 

First, the *official* reported number of cases and death toll is identical to what it was 9 hours ago.

 

I ask you ... how can that possibly be when the number of cases DOUBLED yesterday and the number of deaths MORE THAN DOUBLED?

 

You get the feeling that Chinese authorities are now lying to us?

 

Especially since a New York Times article (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/25/world/asia/china-coronavirus.html ) says ...

 

- China's leader, Xi Jinping, said the situation is "grave" and convened a meeting of the Communist Party leadership.

 

- Bejing announced they are going to cancel all group tours domestically and out of the country.

 

- Bejing announced they are suspending all inter-province buses, limiting road travel into the capital, which is hundreds of miles from Wuhan.

 

- it's been announced that Wuhan is going to ban vehicle traffic in the city center.

 

- the US had ordered the evacuation of American consulate employees in Wuhan.

 

- Hong Kong has declared a state of emergency and closed all schools.

 

- China is now building TWO hospitals to deal with the outbreak.

 

And get this ...

People without symptoms could be spreading the virus.

 

The medical journal The Lancet published a study on Friday suggesting that people infected with the coronavirus might be able to spread it even if they do not have flu symptoms.

 

Researchers studied a family of seven in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, five of whom had traveled to Wuhan, the center of the outbreak. Two of them came into contact with an infected relative in a hospital there. Testing conducted days later, after they flew home, found that six members of the family had the coronavirus, including one who had not gone to Wuhan.

 

One infected family member, a child, had no symptoms, suggesting that people with the virus might be spreading it without knowing that they have it, the study found.

 

“It shows this new coronavirus is able to transfer between person to person, in a hospital setting, a family home setting, and also in an intercity setting,” Yuen Kwok-yung, an author of the study, said in an interview. “This is exactly what makes this new disease difficult to control.” Dr. Yuen characterized the disease as “asymptomatic walking pneumonia.”

 

 

But hey ... no reason for this topic to be discussed on this forum.

 

The impeachment trial circus and our hatred of each other is all that matters.

 

Right?

No link with seafood market in first case of China coronavirus, Chinese scientists revealed

 

Researchers into initial cases find first person with symptoms had no contact with market where disease is believed to have originated

 

Furthermore ...

 

Quote

The researchers, seven of whom work at Wuhan’s Jinyintan hospital, designated for patients with the illness, revealed on Friday in The Lancet medical journal that symptoms of the new disease were first reported on December 1 – much earlier than the Wuhan government’s initial announcement on December 31 of 27 cases of the pneumonia-like infection.

 

Still think the Chinese government has been upfront about this?

 

Quote

“Taken together, evidence so far indicates human transmission for 2019-nCoV, the report said. “We are concerned that 2019-nCoV could have acquired the ability for efficient human transmission,” the researchers added, along with a strong recommendation for precautions such as fit-tested N95 respirators and other personal protective equipment.

 

Still think there's no cause for concern ... nothing to discuss?

Actually, just a few hours ago, Xi Jinping said the spread of the virus is "ACCELERATING".

 

And yet the official number of cases and deaths has remained essentially the same since midday yesterday?

 

They are lying to us now, folks.

 

And ALL of China is now mobilizing to fight this epidemic.

New Jersey Releases Nurse Quarantined for Suspected Ebola

Oct. 27, 2014, 8:42 AM CDT / Updated Oct. 27, 2014, 8:44 AM CDT

The nurse forcibly quarantined in New Jersey after she came home from treating Ebola patients in West Africa was released from the hospital Monday. Kaci Hickox has been held against her will in a tent inside a wing of a New Jersey medical center since she was taken off a flight, flushed and distraught, Friday.

Hickox has hired a lawyer and spoken out publicly against her quarantine.

 

“Since testing negative for Ebola on early Saturday morning, the patient being monitored in isolation at University Hospital in Newark has thankfully been symptom free for the last 24 hours,” New Jersey health department officials said in a statement. “As a result, and after being evaluated in coordination with the CDC and the treating clinicians at University Hospital, the patient is being discharged.”

The case quickly escalated over the weekend, with Hickox protesting from her confinement and scientists including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, saying there was no medical basis to hold her. The White House even weighed in, pressing New York and New Jersey to reverse their decisions to quarantine all returning medical workers who have treated Ebola patients.

 

f_dc_wh_ebolanurse_141027.focal-760x428.jpg

 
 

Hickox will be allowed to take private transport home to Maine. “Since the patient had direct exposure to individuals suffering from the Ebola Virus in one of the three West African nations, she is subject to a mandatory New Jersey quarantine order," the statement read.

“Health officials in Maine have been notified of her arrangements and will make a determination under their own laws on her treatment when she arrives.”

 

State and federal officials have been under enormous pressure from the public to do something to protect people from Ebola ever since Thomas Eric Duncan was diagnosed with the virus in Dallas and died earlier this month.

 

tdy_or_ebola_141027.focal-760x428.jpg

 
 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had advised states to monitor anyone returning from the three Ebola-hit West African nations — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea — for the 21 day maximum period, but hadn't advised quarantine. New York and New Jersey both said they'd go farther and quarantine anyone traveling from those countries who had been in contact with an Ebola patient. That would of course include doctors, nurses and technicians who volunteer to go fight the epidemic.

Virginia and Maryland are the latest states to release rules on returning travelers. Virginia health officials said Monday they'd enforce a 21-day monitoring period, but said anyone who had unprotected contact with a known Ebola patient would have to agree to stay at home for that period and said returning health care workers must agree to stay off public transport.

Maryland's new policy is similar. "Individuals with a known exposure to Ebola virus, such as through a splash of body fluid on exposed skin or a needle-stick injury will remain at home for the 21-day period and will be closely monitored," Maryland governor Martin O'Malley said in a blog post.

 

tdy_snow_ebola2_141027.focal-760x428.jpg

 
 

"Health care workers who were wearing personal protective equipment during care for patients with Ebola virus are at 'some risk.' They will refrain from attending mass gatherings and using public transportation, will refrain from traveling long distances without approval from health department officials, and will also be closely monitored by state and local health officials."

U.S. military troops leaving Africa will be quarantined, the Department of Defense says. Army Major General Darryl Williams and some staff have returned to their home base of Vicenza, Italy, after turning over command of troops in Liberia to Army Major General Gary Volesky and his 101st Airborne Division on Saturday.

Experts stress that people can only transmit Ebola if they are actively ill and showing symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea. People can only catch Ebola if they ingest or are in other close contact with bodily fluids from such a patient.

The official current number of cases is under 1400, but according to a translation (https://flutrackers.com/forum/forum/-2019-ncov-new-coronavirus/china-2019-ncov/821830-china-2019-ncov-cases-in-several-provinces-and-cities-including-confirmed-health-care-workers-at-least-41-deaths/page43 ) of this http://www.chinanews.com/gn/2020/01-25/9069735.shtml , they have requisitioned 10,000 bed in Wuhan for fever patients.   "Fourteen general hospitals have been temporarily transformed into hospitals for fever patients with reference to the basic requirements of infectious disease prevention and treatment institutions."  Maybe that's what Xi Jinping meant by "accelerating"?
