CDC director: ‘We can stop’ Ebola from spreading

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he is confident that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa can be stopped and likely won’t reach the U.S.

“The plain fact is, we can stop it. We can stop it from spreading in hospitals and we can stop it in Africa [which] is really the source of the epidemic and where we’re surging our response so that we can control it there,” Tom Frieden said in an interview Sunday. He noted that the U.S. has helped stop every previous outbreak of the deadly virus, even though it’s not easy.

Frieden said he was encouraged by the apparent improvement of Kent Brantly, an American doctor from Texas who contracted the disease in Liberia but arrived back in the U.S. on Saturday for treatment.

  1. I notice that nothing is said about HOW we will bell the cat. Everyone does agree that we need to put a bell on the cat.
    What worries me is the consistent ability to lie.
    I am not calling this man a liar. I am calling the government in general to be less than truthful just about everything they say. So with that said, is this person a Liar?

    Really would like to know from a competent doctor and scientist whether or not this is a natural or unnatural virus. If it is man-made bio-warfare, then they do not have any chance whatsoever to contain it to where it started.
    The other question is how do you tell?
    Michael has written some very good articles on this Ebola Virus and the potential for it to wipe out a good portion of mankind on this planet.
    When we are dealing with a fatal disease with no real cure, the only effective treatment is to isolate it.
    When flights from this region continue to go all over the planet, that isolation is not possible.
    So is this person a liar?

  2. Sorry I don’t believe it can be controlled, I don’t trust these people and I definitely DO NOT trust our government in the state it is in. Yes I am calling them LIARS
