We knew it was only a matter of time, since the United States has put no restrictions on international travel.

Ebola has now been confirmed in Dallas, Texas.

The United States has one confirmed case of Ebola, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday, marking the first domestic appearance of the deadly virus that has ravaged swaths of continental Africa.

The as-yet unidentified patient is located in Dallas, officials say, effectively confirming a statement issued on Monday by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. The organization said that an unnamed patient was being tested for Ebola and had been placed in “strict isolation” due to the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.

“The patient is an adult with a recent history of travel to West Africa,” said Texas’ Department of State Health Services, in a statement. “The patient developed symptoms days after returning to Texas from West Africa and was admitted into isolation on Sunday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.” (source)

Last night Mac Slavo of SHTFplan broke the story that a patient had been admitted to the hospital with the tell-tale symptoms and suspect travel history.

Multiple news sources are reporting that an individual showing symptoms of the Ebola virus has been admitted to a hospital in Dallas, Texas. The patient, whose travel history suggests he or she may have been exposed to the virus, has been isolated and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas says it is following testing and quarantine procedures outlined by the Centers for Disease Control.

Test samples have been sent to the CDC and preliminary test results are expected Tuesday morning. (source)

If you haven’t already finalized your preparations for a pandemic, now is the time. The following is an excerpt from an article written on September 15, 2014.

What You Need Right Now

Right now, before panic ensues, you need to ensure that you have everything you need to survive as though the world we know has ended. You need to be prepared to stay in your home for weeks, if not months. You need to be ready for a potential disruption of services.

Best case scenario: You get these supplies,  the outbreak never occurs, and you can dole them out into your regular usage or stash them with your prepper stockpile while snickering at the crazy preppers.

Worst case scenario: You read this warning, you do nothing, and then the outbreak occurs. You realize that the prepper folks aren’t so crazy after all. But by then, it will be too late to stock up.

Following is a list of supplies that you may soon need:

In the event you have no choice but to leave your home, Mac Slavo recommends the following:

If you’re forced to exit your home, you’re going to want to be fully protected, and that includes covering your hands, eyes, nose, and mouth.

In addition to the N-95 respirator masks mentioned above, you may also consider upgrading to the more expensive N-100 respirators recommended by the World Health Organization.

Or, go with a full facemask. Insofar as your preparedness efforts are concerned, you may also be able to kill two birds with one stone here and go with a full face mask that includes NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) protection like the US-made NATO SGE 400/3 Military Gas Mask.  If going with such a mask, be sure to include some NBC filters.

If a family member becomes ill, Tess Pennington of  Ready Nutrition recommends building a sick room that can be used to isolate suspected infections or even to be used as a quarantine/observation area for friends and family who may be coming to your home as part of your group lockdown plan.

Building a sick room may include supplies like:

Don’t wait.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. By the time the CDC gets around to offering checklists to the rest of us, items like these will be in short supply. If you are unprepared, you’ll be at the mercy of organizations like FEMA, who will be doling out water bottles and MREs to those who are likewise hungry and thirsty.

    They have given us orders to let your bodies rot on the street. You are reading this, living in Dallas you already have it. They have let it loose. It will strike next in Houston. It will be bigger and badder than Dallas. Dallas is just a test run. Houston is the target.

      It better not infect JJ Watt. He’s my favorite defensive player in the NFL.

        • Unreconstructed Southron says:

          Not really Iowa. Ebola’s actually very effective.

          • PC SUX says:

            This is a prime example of when exponential growth can be a very bad thing.

          • Billy Hill says:

            Dammit! Silver just tanked again, it’s < $17.00/oz. Should I buy stacks or masks?

            • Tacoma says:

              Buy silver mask will not help any.

            • maddog says:

              Buy Kevlar Head Saver Scarfs.

              • passinwiththewind says:

                Just cover your head with a big black berka and wear a long black flowing dress/garment, w/ combat boots. You will be perceived as a muslim warrior woman.

                The Muslim men won’t mess with you because they had rather have little boys and goats, and the American people will shower you with appeasement and p.c. rhetoric as you walk by.

                not to mention all the fringe benefits you can scarf up at the Social Services Dept; with a couple dirty rug rats in tow. Just play dumb and mumble, and the SS workers are trained to fill out/falsify, all the paperwork for you and even show you how to vote.

                No body will even come close enough to you to infect you with even the common cold, much less ebola or aids, because they are now afraid of people dressed as such, and only see them as; brandishing a razor sharp machete to lop off their heads.

                Welcome to the new world of disorder.
                With a million muslim refugees lined up for importation to the USA;
                Coming soon to a Walmarket near you.
                If you can’t beat ’em, dress up like ’em.

              I buy silver when I have extra money regardless of the price. Of course, I’m fully prepared too.

            • Winston Smith says:

              Depends. If you have masks already, then buy silver. If not then you are a bit late to the game and need to buy masks IMMEDIATELY. Go buy them right now. Don’t wait or it will be too late.

            • m2hss says:

              BOTH…….buy REAL gas masks with NATO quality or better FRESH filters…and silver…….if the dollar tanks more or people lose faith in it the US is screwed! the masks will keep for years and silver never goes bad. Buy BOTH…and a Berkey water system, any size with extra filters. Spend wisely but don’t risk you life on CHEAP CRAP…

          • Hunter says:

            U / Southron is correct!!!

            That said-> (per copy-paste from earlier post)…

            ———————

            You know, one has wonder sometimes at the lunacy inherent to this so called ‘global economy, global community bullshit etc..

            ..I would assume that airport security and hiring practices at manifold (3rd world) West African airports, close to or located in the “Ebola hot-zones”..is sub-par, per our TSA hoodlums..er guidelines…yes?

            With that in mind and coupled w/ the recently opined quotes in various media..that many West Africans believe that the current epidemic, is due to a USA / E.U. plot to depopulate the region w/ weaponized Ebola!
            So as to loot their country’s vast mineral wealth!

            ——————————————–

            -Thinking outside the box-

            ..suppose some orphaned / widower / disgruntled baggage handler in Lagos or elsewhere, has the ‘ass’ for some payback and liberally splashes said virus contaminated urine or other bodily fluids on the suitcases-baggage (whilst loading / transporting such) on some flight bound for Europe or the USA.

            That scenario could be a real bitch, methinks!!!

            ———————————————————

            OK!!!

            …current sitrep encompasses “ONE” known (and isolated) infection…………..

            Item #1.> What of his / her possible co-infectants, here on American Terra-firma???

            Item #2.> Per no crisis wasted PC-think, what’s the regime’s next move? How will it affect you / yours in the long run?

            Item #3.> It won’t be for “our” benefit..so, what is your(individual) plan..should this shape out into an exponential infection rate nightmare, down the road?

            Item #4.> DO NOT post per #3 above..smart ones here grasp ‘OPSEC’..got it!!??!!

            Item #5.> Monitor situation as best possible and if worst case…go dark!

            Item #6.> (advice)..Hard copy anything / everything here @ Mac’s & Daisy’s site per “-fill-in-the-blank-“..source other sites also!

            Item #7.> If total containment ‘materializes’…and the all clear is sounded….remember, it ain’t over ’till the fat lady sings’!!!

            ————————————–

            Thus—

            ..the enemy possesses the high ground here, they can (and do) choose the method of attack..and its battlefield location.

            ..they’re committed to a strategy of keeping us “OFF-BALANCE”..as they are few in number…compared to us!

            ..they have central planning…we do NOT!

            Their fear of freelance-individual attacks / vengeance…is revealed in their (posted)accusatory labels of, who is an enemy of the state!

            —————————————

            Should the balloon go on this one…GOD Bless all here.

              Addendum to post–

              Item #8.> ..take heart..as the recent ‘Whitehouse intruder’ so amply demonstrated, the semi-elite are NOT immune!

              ..which begs the question!

              ..is security for cabinet level cretins & treasonous congress critters superior to that of ‘Bathhouse Barry?”

              ..just curious of course!

              Hunter

              Great post. Has a lot of food for thought in it. I really like it when we are all helping each other. That is the way it should be.

              I have had one worry from the start of prepping. We are all spread out. No way to unify in the current situation. We do have larger numbers than they do. Then there are a lot of people who have never done anything but rely on government. Those are the ones that will be starving when services go down and we will have to fight them too.

              We will have to fight gorilla style. Small teams. Even two man teams. Remember fire 2 or 3 shots and evacuate the danger zone. Harass and probe them constantly. Don’t let the enemy get sleep. Put road blocks and obstacles in there path at every turn. If you have a group or community then destroy all easy transportation routes into your area. ( rail roads, bridges, roads ) Fill all access points with trees, boulders, nails, ect. Also learn how to set up traps. Take out some by trip wires and such. Fight fire with fire. Try to contaminate there supplies if possible.

              Just food for thought for all on here. It would be nice if we were all banded together but I see know way to make that happen.

              Never give up, Never give in, and we will win.

                Agree Mike,look what one guy in Pennsylvania has done so far eluding 100’s of cops,that is one guy!I really don’t know a lot of his background or his reason for shooting two cops(would like to know)but no matter what,this is one guy with no formal military training or combat experience.

              • Unfortunate Son says:

                Understood. Any advice for two (one proficient with a firearm) in an apartment? At this point, all I got is stock up, lock down and no quarter accepted or offered. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

          This is WHY The EBOLA DISTRACTION IS STEALING THE HEADINES: GENOCIDE BY US BOMBS IN SYRIA.

          White House exempts Syria airstrikes from tight standards on civilian deaths
          Amid reports of women and children killed in U.S. air offensive, official says the ‘near certainty’ policy doesn’t apply.

          The White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.
          A White House statement to Yahoo News confirming the looser policy came in response to questions about reports that as many as a dozen civilians, including women and young children, were killed when a Tomahawk missile struck the village of Kafr Daryan in Syria’s Idlib province on the morning of Sept. 23.

          FreeSlave, it would make perfect sense, tactically, to take out large populations of people who DON’T AGREE WITH THEIR AGENDA, first. The sites that are the most trouble. That’s why the military often hits munitions depots and weapons manufacturing sites, utilities and such first, in almost any war.

          If it is true, then all the globalists are doing, is taking down the largest patches of resistance to their agenda…first.

WE are the only ones between the sheep and the wolves. And have you ever noticed how the wolves ALWAYS out number the sheep dogs and how few sheep dogs it takes to keep the wolves away from the sheep? Wolves are cowards. They prey on the weak. The time to prepare is NOW. The wolves are at the doorstep. Get ready…..or get dead.

        I find it interesting when this is coming about. Now this does not mean that I don’t think it could all be a coincidence, but hear out my crazy conspiracy theory. What time of year is it about to be? Why, the holiday season! All of the holidays that people usually get together and go out shopping for and travel for are right around the corner. Halloween is at the end of this month, followed by Thanksgiving and then Christmas (or Hanukkah or Ramadan or even Kwanza) and then New Years. What better time of year to spread the joy of ebola then now? Alternately, if people all stay home then retail sales collapse and we will see a new economic collapse due to a lack of Christmas shopping. So, it’s a real win-win for TPTB.

              A hard core Russian general decided to hold an inspection with his elite troops. These soldiers were used to being subjected to rigorous PT and grueling training exercises. In the snowy wastes of Siberia.
              The general decided to make things really interesting by ordering his men to remove their uniforms and stand in the snow naked while he conducts the inspection.
              As the general walks through the ranks, he sees a huge pecker protruding through one row of men and strides toward the offending appendage, drawing his saber at the same time. The general decides that this is the time to find out how tough his men really are and chops off a section of the penis. The general looks at the soldier, does not see a reaction on the man’s face, and begins to question him as the end of the penis is flopping in the snow, blood gushing everywhere.
              The general asks, “Didn’t that hurt”?
              The soldier replies, “No sir”.
              The general persists, “That didn’t bother you a bit”?
              Soldier: “No sir, not at all…”
              The general is amazed, but tells the soldier “you are a fine soldier, with your stamina and tolerance for pain”.
              The soldier replies, “Sir, the schlong you just chopped off. It belonged to the man behind me”.

      • Winston Smith says:

        I don’t think so just yet. However, it is a possibility that it will happen by spring. The reason being that it takes time for Ebola to get out of control. One month just isn’t enough time to go from a single patient zero to a mass epidemic. Plus, you have a matrix of several possible scenarios and only one or two of the least probable end with martial law in one month-at least as far as Ebola is concerned.

        This is not to say that I am not deeply concerned about the possibilities that are on the table so far as Ebola is concerned. It could get very ugly very quickly. However, I tend to think it will be some sort of middle ground. Some people will be forcibly isolated, but this will be limited to a few hundred and the disease will be allowed to burn itself out within those few hundred. I could go out on a wild conspiratorial limb here, but I choose not to. (For my conspiracy theory, read my other posts in this article.)

    • This guy got back to the US on Sept 19th and started to get sick 4 days later (Sept 23rd). He went to hospital for treatment but was sent home and not admitted until Sept 28th.

      Given you are not supposed to be contagious until you start showing symptoms, at best this guy was able to infect others for 5 days.

      Food for thought – how many people do you have direct contact with in 5 days? How many hands do you shake, kids/grandkids do you hug/kiss, make love to your wife, doorknobs/railings/switches do you touch?

      Frightening isn’t it?

      • Winston Smith says:

        Thanks for providing that data. This is truly a frightening thing to think about. I wonder what this guy did for a living? Hopefully he wasn’t in hospitality or a cab driver. Sadly, with him having 5 days of being contagious and mixing with the population I think this is far from the end of Ebola in the US. Within a month I expect to see around a hundred infections and it will only get worse from there. I just pray that I am being too pessimistic. This is one of those times when I really don’t want to be right!

        • Me here says:

          All the people in the airport, planes, everyone THEY went home to…this could be bad. No travel restrictions. Easy to believe that it was allowed to happen.

        • Walt Kowalski says:

          They are not saying anything regarding particulars or details regarding this patient….citing “patient confidentiality, blah, blah, blah.

          It would seem to me, that if they don’t release his name, then it doesn’t matter what details they release. In a situation like this, I would think that it would be in the public’s interest to know just how many people this guy could have come in contact with.

          Actually…in the case of a public health crisis, they should throw the confidentiality protocols out the window. What if this guy had contact with someone that he doesn’t recall…but THEY may recall being in contact with HIM if his name is given to the public.

          The CDC claims that they know all the people with which he had contact. Unless he stayed in one location and can account for EVERY SINGLE PERSON he was in the same room with…then I say they are lying.

          Frankly….it would not surprise me in the least if the CDC was telling a whole pile of lies just so they won’t panic the public….or even worse…TPTB WANT more people infected, and if the CDC told the truth, then people would start taking immediate precautions.

          • Winston Smith says:

            Well, it may be a good thing that this person’s details are not released. You may wonder why I say that. In a case like this, the CDC needs the element of surprise. If they release the particulars of the patient, then some people may go into hiding instead of being seen and isolated by the medical authorities. This could actually spread it further and faster than if the public didn’t know.

            Are they trying to quell a possible panic? Of course they are. Still, while there is no panic, this is a good time to buy more essentials like N100 or even N95 masks, plastic sheeting, duct tape, garbage bags, Tyvek suits, gloves, etc. If this goes further (and I think it will) then there will be no supply of these items available. So, don’t panic yet, but prepare as best you can for what very well may be a nasty pandemic. Also, if you live around the Dallas area and work in the service industry, this may be a good time to take a vacation or leave the industry all together. It’s better to be unemployed than infected with Ebola. ( I work in food service and deal with the public every day. You can bet I am paying very close attention to this and will leave my job as soon as it comes close.)

            Remember, up until yesterday, there was almost no chance of Ebola reaching USA. I have great confinence in the CDC. They won’t even tell what flight he was on. What about the ER staff on duty when he first went to the hospital (it might not have even been the SAME hospital)? Move on, nothing to see here! Just bring out your dead!!!

              he contracted ebola on the AIRPLANE. there’s a story out there that there’s a fifty percent chance symptoms show up within 5 days…..why the HELL would ANYONE get on an airplane anymore?….short the airlines right here, right now! i would rather let pelosi sit on my face and take a rosebush to my ass than get on an airplane.

              • Walt Kowalski says:

                Here in the DFW area, we are being saturated with media info right now regarding this. Of course…..almost none of the information is really very useful BECAUSE THE DAMN CDC AND GOVERNMENT WON’T RELEASE USEFUL INFORMATION. They’re just running a dog and pony show.

                CDC says….”Stay calm and wash your hands”.

                Really? Are you f’ing serious?

                This reminds me so much of the “duck and cover” drills we went through in the early 60’s during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Any of you remember that? They’d have us crawl under our desks, put our heads between our knees (a real struggle for the fat kids) and then cover our heads with our hands and arms. This was supposed to protect us if we got nuked by the Russians. What a laugh. Best you could do in that position was kiss your ass goodbye.

                Just saw a new Drudge headline….”Second Possible Ebola Case In Dallas”.

                CDC is telling us how they have a handle on this. Right.

                I guess they think we are all mushrooms, because they are just keeping us in the dark and piling on the excrement.

                Dallas County is run by the biggest bunch of incompetents you’ll ever come across.

                One of the county commissioners is the guy who wanted to bring 2000 illegal immigrant “children” to Dallas back in June/July.

                No reason to think the health department is run any better.

                And from all appearances, the first trip to the hospital that the infected guy made……they gave him antibiotics and sent him home. Evidently, the thought was that some black dude with an African accent shouldn’t be questioned as to where he had been for the last month or so. And his symptoms were nothing “out of the ordinary”.

                Right…..you’ve got a black guy with an African accent sitting in front of you with a fever, sore throat and body aches and the thought never occurs to you to ask where he’s been.

                I don’t know….but I’m thinking some medical staff should be possibly working at McDonald’s instead of dealing with the public health……just sayin’.

          • passinwiththewind says:

            We do know they lie.

            It is more probable that they/TPTB/CDC have watched too many “zombie”, movies and tv programs.

            They are scared that the ZOMBIE HUNTERS, will come out of the woodwork and try to kill anyone ever coming into contact with this person. As if he were infected with the mutated rabies/ebola virus, and anyone that touched him will be soon running around with foaming mouths and snarling at people.
            That was meant as a joke , btw; however, it is not so far feteched. A professor at the University of Maryland has slightly exposed a possible mutated virus of the rabies virus that may have been already invented by TPTB.

            Apparently, the Pentagon has a “Preparedness Plan” in place or in the works, just for this particular type infection.

            Since rabies has no known cure after the incubation period; in effect, anyone with the disease is considered……the walking dead. Seven to fourteen days after showing the signs of the disease and it’s “pushing up daisies”.

            With an all out spread of such a disease and it then becomes a “pushing up daisies-chain”, from hell.

            What a mucked up fess, if this comes to fruition.

      Your best course of action:
      to avoid crowds
      Avoid people who are Exhibiting symptoms of illness keep at least 6 feet away in open air .
      Wash your hands and do not touch your face or eyes after being out in public.
      This is not the same as a influenza pandemic there are a lot of unknowns .
      Apparently this guy was on a plane and was walking around for a week before exhibiting symptoms. Stay off public transit if a pandemic is declared. At this time it is not planned , but could change PAY ATTENTION .

      DO NOT PANIC USE YOUR HEAD , FEAR IS YOU WORST ENEMY .
      Keep alert for additional cases in the next week , 3 weeks incubation (21 days) remember this guy was infected in the begining of September . If additional cases pop up in the wild by individuals that have not been to Africa , gear up and finish your preps as Daisy has outlined in the article. .

      Time is not on our side.
      Be safe , quietly take precautions ,

      • Night Breaker,

        If doctors wearing full head-to-toe biological protection still managed to contract the virus, a single surgical mask alone won’t stop Ebola. What is needed is an aggressive multi-layer protective plan along with a complete lifestyle change to prevent the virus from taking hold. Personally I think people who refuse to wash their hands after using the bathroom are far more dangerous than the virus itself.

          I’ve had the worst luck getting people from the Church to understand how risky it is, for their missionaries to go out in town and indiscriminately shake every hand they can get a hold of, then come back to the church and shake all of ours.

          Personally, I am offended by their lackadaisical treatment of infectious disease protocols. That’s why I haven’t been to church since this ebola scare began. There are just too many weak links there.

      • Mr Rogers says:

        “DO NOT PANIC USE YOUR HEAD , FEAR IS YOU WORST ENEMY .”

        Just so. Most of those – here – have been anticipating what ‘might’ happen’ since we all first became aware of the outbreak as it progressed; there is nothing NEW here…YET. If any persons are hereafter diagnosed with EVD who have not lately travelled abroad then the ‘cat is out of the bag’…it goes without saying.

        IN THE MEANWHILE….one small addition to Daisy’s prudent suggestions above; I would strongly recommmend going to your local doctor and getting a prescription for ‘PhisoHex’ (the GALLON size!)….and yes, you WILL need a prescription to get it. ‘Hexachloridine’ is one of a very few chemicals that is simply wholly inimical to virtually every known virus. However, it DOES have carcinogenic properties though, so you PROBABLY want to avoid using it – long-term – unless the need to do so is PLAIN and APPARENT.

        By now it is becoming clear that the academic community has BADLY misjudged the fundamental capacity of this pathogen to transmit itself and as well, that – now – we have no CLEAR idea of just what it’s ACTUAL transmission vectors actually consist of, therefor, “Prudence IS warranted.”, to say the least. The ‘outlier’ here (as a possibility) is that just enough of this would manifest in progressive fashion as to begin impairing the JIT logistic systems that underlie ALL of modern civilization…if THAT happens then ‘all bets are OFF Folks’…instantly.

        Lastly, we must begin to consider that some madman MIGHT elect to take this occurance as being a propituous time to stage a ‘release’ of something else. Were that so, the inital response of a system micro-focused on EVD would likely miss the inital occurance of that and thus allow for a far broader dissemination until it was recognized.

        There is MUCH to be watched during the next few weeks, it should go without saying that for something as horrible as this is all precautions are warranted, as well that any remaining preparation that you have as yet ‘left undone’ likely would be prudent to do…NOW.

        An excellent article Miss Luther…My Thanks.

        Footnote: you may want to – carefully – consider that the CDC is now indicatiing that EVD may become endemic in West Africa in the future. As a thought exercise here WHAT would likely happen if the entire sytem broke down in a real SHTF scenario and all of the lovely little ‘nasty’s’ which inhabit the world – at large – were scattered through the bio-spere….HOW many YEARS would it be until people could walk freely without fear through any area so affected? The statistical models I have seen for those type of scenario’s are “grim” to say the least. Just a thought…

        • sixpack says:

          Phisohex sounds great for sanitizing surfaces, but I think I’m going to stick with rotating combination of betadine, isopropyl alcohol and a strong pool shock solution.

          I’m already going into surgery to have some cancer removed, I’m not pressing my luck with carcinogens, any more than I have to.

          • Mr Rodgers says:

            @ sixpack,

            Ummm, i woldn’t use it for surfaces; it’s a TAD too expensive for that…I picked a gallon jug up – oh say – 4 month ago and it cost me $178 for that. Specifically I was refering to it as being used for the SELF…when and AS applicable.

            Also don’t forget that simple Borax (as well, Boric Acid) has significant ability to ‘cut’ protein strands and that THAT may be used quite easily (and safely) in tandem with Chlorox bleach (not the Boric acid though) in aqueous solution for sterilizing any surface. Remember that the Chlorox WILL evaporate in very short order, but the remnant Borax will remain until – and ONLY until – something washes it off. As for the Betadine I’m not so sure…most of what is sold commonly is a fairly weak solution of povidone Iodine (Iodine is related to Chlorine, yes) but the issue is IF it is STRONG enough as it is compounded commercially. Almsot ANY hypo-chlorite based bleach is fully capable of acting to disrupt the gentic sequencing of a virus on contact, thereby destroying it’s abilty to be dangerous.

            In truth, the occaisional exposure to the active ingredient in “PhisoHex’ is not apt to produce carginogenic results unless used daily and repeatedly likely for years. Lastly here, the alcohol will do NOTHING to retard the virulence of most viruses…so be careful there.

            I hope that some of this might help someone here…

          • John W. says:

            Use the Phisohex. The studies showed it would take someone literally drinking the stuff for years to get cancer. Of course the panic weenies made a big issue of it. Hospital wards used to be misted with it and there were no staph infections as a result. Take your pick, a good chance of getting a flesh eating bacteria or a very tiny chance of getting cancer. More scare mongering that had bad results.

          Those statistical models are they the ones developed by USAMRIID for CBRN contamination zones?
          Your comment is right on target I have nothing to add , later today at work we have an additional base operations contegency planning meeting.
          I have a general fear the Human Factor may well be worse then the virus
          Panic can bring out a whole slew of difficulties especially that pointed out in your comments to the just in time delivery system , that is the stuff nightmars are made of and could cause more causilities than the virus itself.
          I will start to worry when they start to issue MOPP 4 gear and Decontamination kits.
          Paying attention is the best thing now and maintaining OPSEC for your plans

            @ Night Breaker,

            Yes, the same models you mention. The ‘Human Factor’, that is – frankly – what worries me the most.

            Any rational thinking person facred with a potential existential threat to themselve would naturally act to PREVENT any occuance of potential contamination of themselves…via ANY avenue…such goes without saying. It is the effects that attend that ‘rational behaviour’ whose ramifications are simply – IMHO – not being considered broadly.

            Whether EVD – here – becomes even proximately epidemic or no, the consequences of a disruption to the ‘system’ if even a samll portion of the working populace ‘disengage’ from work-related funtions would LIKELY have inordinately potent effects on the proper fucntioning of ‘what we see’ around us in daily life. I can’t remember WHO or WHAT originally posted what I here mention (CRS syndrome here!) but there was a guy a while back who did an extraordinary analysis of what would happen if the the JIT/Financial linkage became perturbed…even slightly; the results he inferred were simply ‘Terrible’ and having read that piece myself I could NOT find flaw of any sort therein. As I recall, he concluded that extraordinary damage would occur within any modern system such as our’s today, in only a ten-day period were that linkage interupted.

            …And THAT is what is to be feared, as there is now little or nothing within the Western World that does NOT depend on JIT input (often critically) to function… almost daily in many cases.

            “Standing by, planning and preparing furiously…”

            You and me BOTH Friend…like it’s my new religion.

        For those who have been putting it off, there is still time to get what you need for just a few FRNs.

        Look at it like this. If colloidal silver was ineffective the CDC would be telling you to take it. Instead, I am telling you because I know it is effective and I am on your side.

        No, I do not sell silver. My profits will be in the form of fellow freedom lovers to participate in the destruction of the money changers.

  6. Wind River Mom says:

    Questions:

    Did Patient Zero really fly into Dallas/Ft Worth International?

    At what point is anyone here thinking “self imposed lock down”? when it hits your state or your county? That is, if the PTB don’t impose lockdown if this thing gets out of hand.

    • The route he took is not clear and no one is saying anything from CDC/hospital because of medical privacy laws.

      This person could have come into contact with hundreds of people while he was symptomatic – and if that’s the case then we can expect more infections. Let’s hope they caught it early, but there are still hundreds more infected in Africa (and who knows where else).

      • Wind River Mom says:

        Mac,

        I just found an article that says patient zero became symptomatic several days after flying into Dallas/Ft Worth. He/she was admitted to hospital on Sunday (so he/she flew in when? Thursday…Friday?)

        If you or anyone here find out what day he/she flew into Dallas/Ft Worth, I would be incredibly grateful if you post that info. Not for me but for a dear friend who was recently right there. She is not worried for herself but for others around her at work, kids, etc.

        Chances would be astronomically high that she contracted E but I can see now how little details like this could make folks go apesh!t with ‘concern’.

        • home stead says:

          This timeline came from an article I read elsewhere today, can’t remember where.

        • Waiting in Idaho says:

          I watched CDC news conference. They said he arrived DFW on the 20th. Symptoms started on the 24th. He sought medical help on the 26th (they never said where) but was sent home. On the 29th, he was bad enough that he went to ER, where he came into contact with several health workers. CDC was very tight lipped with info. Wouldn’t say what airline or what route he took. They did say he was NOT a US citizen. This will be funny when we find out that this guy is an ISIS suicide virus bomb. Top off your preps. Be ready to self quarantine. Good luck to all.

      • Dona Stroshine says:

          Mayo Clinic released guidelines today saying Ebola is more highly contagious once the patient is symptomatic. Which I read to mean, they know a person IS contagious before they show symptoms, just not AS contagious. Oops. Don’t think anybody was supposed to let that cat out of the bag.

    • Wind River Mom,

      Obama allowed the airlines to place profits ahead of common sense and public health safety by allowing them to fly full international schedules to the worst “Hot Zone” countries in Africa.

      To say Obama invited this crisis would not be a stretch of the imagination IMHO. A biological/health crisis is an excellent distractor from his falling political ratings. Not to mention, who knows what the politicians will be working on behind the scenes while Americans are pre-occupied with Ebola.

          I think the theft beaurocracy means no real action can be done. the $1M per bed is clearly a thefy scheme. So, rather than meeting its goal probably most if not all government action is derailed by theft. At this point, Legislative and Judicial are ineffective. The Executive is so rotten that all actions result in theft first with at most a token result towards the goal. How many government employees do you know who have accomplished 100th of what you accomplished in the past year? If I were paid like the government employees, I’d make $100M per year all by myself!!! So, 1/1000th of the money the government spends is used properly. So, its maybe not that they don’t have guiding directives; but that almost every person along the way is part of the scheme and not actually working but simply sucking away the money. By the time the $1000 bed is installed, $1M has been spent! That’s why they can’t stop Ebola. Corruption=willful incompetence.

      Does anyone know the answer to this? I asked a similar question before about the growth/spread cycle/rate. All I’ve seen online is some elementary R factors – at which even at that they are simply guessing. Are no scientists involved in disease tracking? Or is it the ‘wikipedia’ effect where you get a paragraph summary and no indepth knowledge?
      Just guessing based on the flu is it would take 3-6 months. But looking at the growth rate so far: years. We know its incubated for six months now. At some point, does it go critical? Like the flu. Or it a slow, endemic spread over a decade?

          Thanks WC, Im doing just that. Got me a batch of mead going yum 😛 If ya want to join the party heres an easy recipe for mead…

          3 quarts of water to 1 quart of honey together in a clean and sterile pot. (I sterilize my stuff in the oven at 220 degrees for at least 20 minutes).
          Melt the honey water mixture stirring occasionally until the water slightly steams or the surface starts moving (do not boil).
          Let the mix cool to about 85 degrees and pour into a glass jug or jugs that have been sterilized.
          Add yeast (bread yeast is ok) at a ratio of 1 packet to 1 gallon of mix.
          Put a balloon over the top of the jug or use an airlock if you have one.
          Let the mix ferment untill the balloon goes flat or the airlock stops bubbling (about 2 weeks)
          Siphon off the mix (do not siphon the sediment at the bottom) into sterilized glass sealed containers.
          Let the containers sit 1 week (you will probably see a little more sediment) then crack the cap and let off excess pressure.
          At this point you can drink it or store it for later just make sure you reseal the cap if your saving it.

          Probably one of the easiest alc. beverages to make all you need is water, honey, yeast.

          Actually, it was they are not contagious unless they are showing symptoms such as high fever or flu like symptoms. That being said, what if a person has no symptoms, and is a carrier like Typhoid Mary. That’s when the real disaster starts. The danger with Ebola is its long incubation rate which is 28 days… (Insert bad British zombie movie here). Symptoms should start to manifest themselves between 14-24 days. So with that all being said, watch the movie Outbreak, eat some popcorn, and kiss yo ass goodbye…

    4 days…4 days until this person was admitted. Who knows how many people were exposed in those 4 days. I guess we will start to see in about a week to 14 days.

    If/when another case shows up in Dallas within the next few weeks (assuming the media is allowed to report on it) many will start to panic and by then it will be too late to get your supplies. Right now the sheeple are convinced that this is an isolated incident and that the almighty government will take care of it.

    I have no intention to spread fear, but I believe that we are looking at a huge possibility of this being a pandemic. HOpefully I’m wrong, but if I’m not then I sure wouldn’t want to be unprepared. Because, quite frankly, the best way to defeat this is to isolate and ride it out.

    I believe it is airborne but since they wont admit it…they are only contagious when they have symptoms…I read this…
    The man left Liberia Sept. 19 and arrived in the USA the next day, but had no symptoms when leaving Africa or arriving here, said Thomas Frieden, CDC director. The patient became sick Sept. 24 and he sought care two days later. He was sent home, but returned to a hospital and was admitted Sept. 28. Frieden did not reveal the man’s nationality, but said he came to the USA to visit relatives.

    So obviously he started showing symptoms on the 24th. Went to the emergency room most likely on the 26th…sent home…probably with the “flu” went back to hospital on the 28th was admitted. Ebola confirmed on the 30th….sooooo…how many were exposed on the 26th in the ER room.

    And so it begins.

    Touché.

  27. Kate in Colorado says:

    Okay guys, here’s how this will play out. The CDC “go team” which is on is way to Dallas will interview (if the patient is able) the patient, the patients family, and the airline for every person on board the flight. Depending to the size of the aircraft that’s several hundred people right up front.They will track to see if he or she had been on other flights. Let’s say he can into New York and had ended up in Dallas. The people on that flight would need to be tracked down. The team would probably put everyone who the patient had close contact with (family, co-workers and so forth) into quarentine for 21 days. If the patient was the least bit symptomatic before presenting to the hospital they will have to identify every place the person visited. Maybe he went to the grocery to gets medications and liquids, or went to church on Sunday, and the circle widens and widens. It depends on how long the patient was symptomatic before presenting to the hospital. If he sat in the ER waiting room for a long time there are those folks that need to be considered.
    You can see how complicated the CDC’s task is for just one patient. So imagine how quickly something like this can grow into an impossible task.
    Our plan is to now wear nitrile gloves when out in public. When arriving home have a trash receptacle outside the residence to put the gloves in . Immeadiately wash your hands well. I plan on keeping shoes I wear in public outside in the garage,making sure I dip the soles of the shoes into cholrine water. Anything that you want to bring into the home, wipe with a cholrine solution.
    Now we watch and wait. If you are not ready for a long period of isolation, I urge you to get things in order. We will see in three weeks where we are, but please protect yourselves in the mean time. You can’t panic, just have a plan and supplies.

        The point to consider is the impact on livestock and the farmers who care for them. I could envision a scenario where farms and herds are quarantined. That disruption alone would cause shortages and panic buying.

      The Black Plague and the Secret of Thieves

      As the bubonic plague decimated Europe in the year 1413, four thieves were captured and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims. When the thieves were tried, the magistrate offered leniency if they would reveal how they resisted contracting the infection as they performed their gruesome acts.Thieves-Oil-2013

      The four thieves explained that they were perfumers and spice traders and told of a special concoction of aromatic herbs, including cloves and rosemary, that they rubbed on their hands, ears, and temples.

      The proprietary Thieves essential oil blend was created based on research of the concoction used by the thieves of the 15th century. In 1997, studies conducted at Weber State University showed the Thieves essential oil blend to have a 99.96% success rate against airborne bacteria. The bacteria cultures were sprayed in an enclosed area, and Thieves oil blend was diffused for a given amount of time (this can be duplicated in the home using a cool-air diffuser or TheraPro Diffuser).

  28. It was only a matter of time. Doesn’t really change my plan. Just hope it doesnt. blow up with idiots overreacting.

  29. If there isn’t a full blown pandemic here in the states; I wonder what the economical impact will be.
    I’m sure people in Dallas are already considering hunkering down for a bit.
    The most telling event will be the location of the second domestic ebola case…. in Dallas or elsewhere?

    People need to be evaluating where they’re situated if there are more cases and especially if it starts appearing near them. A militarized quarantine can come with little to no warning, because a notice would defeat the purpose. People healthy and infected would be kept in the zone.

      No kidding.

Within a few hours, those 1000 people could have been in contact with 5,000 more, if all were leaving the airport, and many more thousands if they were entering the airport to travel somewhere else.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      Agree: people are just not thinking on this issue. The difference in conditions between the third world and the first world is chasmic. The third world is basically a nightmare version of the darkest days of the industrial revolution in Europe, only minus the knowledge of the enlightenment, or high IQs, or functioning governments.

      Most third world nations are just a clique of elites who spend their days enriching themselves and their immediate friends and families/tribes. They do not care about anything else. In fact, I had a conversation with one who said (with hearty chuckles), “we leave the taking care of the poor to those stupid NGOs and Western aid agencies to pay for.”

      Under those conditions, it is no surprise problems get out of hand quickly, and take a long time and many dead to eventually be resolved. Until the next cataclysmic crisis that is.

      In the West, we have many layers of protections and systems that kick in and start fighting back against a problem. These function better than anything found in the third world. Ebola in the West will be hammered down good and fast.

      As for the third world, well, …

No wiping is required, simply wash surfaces and let dry. No streaks. No residual scent, except for a brief whiff of ‘vinegar’ Can be used in shallow trays to disinfect footwear before entering any residence/room.

    The acetic acid will degrade spore-coat/capsular matrix, especially in resistant agents [ mycobacteria, mycoplasmae and b. anthracis ] allowing the hypochlorite oxidizer to destroy nucleic acids, cell cytoplasm, and viral proteins ]

The plane left Iowa at 8 o’clock Des Moines time. It’s next stop was Honduras . The plane landed and was unloaded. Four Social Workers from Iowa made sure the teens got safely to the terminal, and the Social Workers told the Honduran officials,”Here are your teens, they have no papers, you let them come illegally to America .

    That said…the first thing we learned in nursing, was “hand washing is the single most effective way to stop the spread of infection.” That said….

    We were taught to do a 30 second scrub of rubbing our hands together with the soap…and then rinse. Americans don’t do that too much…we did that after each patient contact and then again before the next one. The friction sends germs down the drain.

    …my questions are….did he/patient zero have lay overs? If so, where? Did he change planes? Can a flight go from Liberia to Dallas on one tank of fuel? What about all the people and things he was in contact with prior to the official hospital admission with symptoms? My thoughts go towards Texas being “punished” by TPTB?

    Mai Wureh told The Associated Press that her brother, Thomas Eric Duncan, went to a Dallas emergency room on Friday and was sent home with antibiotics. He returned two days later after his condition worsened and was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

    Dr. Mark Lester confirmed Wednesday that a nurse asked Duncan on his first visit whether he had been in an area affected by the Ebola outbreak that has killed thousands in West Africa, but that “information was not fully communicated throughout the whole team.”

    13 things we would like the CDC to tell us about the US 1st Ebola diagnosis

    news.sciencemag.org/health/2014/09/one-more-question-dr-frieden-thirteen-things-wed-cdc-tell-us-about-first-u-s-ebola

    At a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Tom Frieden, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced the first case of Ebola from the current epidemic that was diagnosed outside of Africa. The patient arrived in Dallas, Texas, on 20 September to visit relatives. Until today, the handful of people with Ebola in the United States were all diagnosed in Africa, carefully transported, and immediately provided with care in isolation units at hospitals.

    The new patient had his temperature taken before boarding the flight out of Liberia on 19 September, U.S. officials say, and had no disease symptoms at the time. He first started feeling ill on 24 September, sought medical care 2 days later, and was hospitalized on 28 September. Labs at CDC and the Texas Department of State Health Services both reported that his blood tested positive today for the Ebola strain circulating in West Africa.

    Two ScienceInsider reporters called in to the press conference, but there was so much interest from the media that they did not get a chance to ask a question. Here, however, are some of the questions they would like to have asked.

    Q: Dr. Frieden, it sounds like the patient wasn’t tested for Ebola when he first sought medical care, on 26 September, even though he had just arrived from a country with an Ebola epidemic. Why not? Did the health care provider who saw him know he had arrived from Liberia 6 days earlier?

    Q: How many health care workers and how many others came into contact with the patient before he was isolated?

    Q: You said the patient’s contacts are now being monitored. Can you give some details about this? Does it include going to their homes and taking their temperature daily? Or do you communicate with them by electronic means, such as phone calls, text messages, and e-mails?

    Q: Are contacts being told to isolate themselves from their friends and family while they are being monitored?

    Q: Does the government have any legal authority to force potential contacts to cooperate if they don’t want to? Are they free to travel?

    Q: Has the house where the patient was staying been disinfected, and if so, how exactly?

    Q: What experimental therapies are available now for the patient, should he want to use them? Would you recommend anything specific?

    Q: Does the patient or his family members have an idea about how he got infected?

    Q: Virologist Heinz Feldmann has described procedures at the airport in Monrovia as a “disaster” and said it was the most dangerous situation he encountered during his visit to Liberia. Could the patient have become infected at the airport? Is that possibility being investigated?

    Q: What is the estimated number of people entering the United States each week who have recently been in one of the countries affected by the epidemic?

    Q: The number of Ebola cases is roughly doubling every 3 weeks; CDC’s own worst case-scenario says there may be as many as 1.4 million patients by 20 January. Should the United States and other countries prepare to see imported cases on a regular basis?

    Q: The World Health Organization has raised the possibility that Ebola could become endemic in West Africa. If that happens, how should the United States deal with people traveling from these countries in the future?

    Q: One more question, Dr. Frieden. The United States is paying a lot of attention to this single case right now. Do you think that will increase the amount of money and number of people the United States is willing to dedicate to containing the outbreak in West Africa?

    5 children under observation after visiting residence where Ebola patient was staying. 3 Fire/rescue workers also under observation. They transported the patient to the hospital. Big ass news conference earlier, included Gov. Perry… Bottom line, it’s under control, don’t panic, everything’s gonna be ok. Yep, ok.

    Has someone thought of having colloidal silver in your preps? I use it for colds (viral & bacterial), and it has always stopped them in one to two days. I’ve heard that colloidal silver works on the Ebola virus but I can’t seem to find the reference.

    http://www.thesilveredge.com has information on silver’s effectiveness as an anti viral and an anti bacterial. They also sell colloidal silver generators.

    So a question for all of those on this site…at what point do you go into total lockdown? Now? Or is it too late?

    • Paranoid says:

      Way early. If you look at the data from Africa (And I admit it’s VERY poor) The problem is bad, but it’s only in the last 2-3 months that a significant number of people have the virus. This outbreak seems to have started almost a year ago. Until it gets to the US and we get cases in the thousands it’s still early, after all with 315,000,000 people 300 cases is still one in a million. We take risks like that every day.
      We are a lot cleaner than Africa, so it should spread much slower, so I’d doubt we will have any problem soon. I’d not worry at all until someone in your area has it that didn’t go to Africa or have a known connection. The world is NEVER completely safe.

      • Paranoid says:

        Quick add: Unless the deaths get into the millions; The panic will be far worse. Consider everyone afraid to go anywhere, people quarantined inside power plants to keep them running, same for water, think truckers refusing to deliver into cites etc; this will be far worse.

    • Smokey says:

      Too early for lockdown, unless you work at the Dallas hospital.

      Do be proactive and get some food and water stocked up, to last 30-60 days. You’re going to spend $500 or $750 easily, if you have nothing right now.

      First $250, get rice, pasta, salt, cooking oil, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned tomatoes, canned chili, soups, stuff like that, and include 30 cans of meat, like spam, chicken, tuna, corned beef, salmon, stuff like that.

      Next $250, double the above, and include anything you think you will need.

      Get some water containers at WalMart, they sell 6-gallon plastic containers, they look like metal jerrycans. Fill them up at home and set aside.

    I have spent all day looking for N95 masks online. Prices & kinds & sizes vary WILDLY. Could someone please give me a quick course so I don’t waste my money before they are all gone??? thank you

    • N-95 should not be more than about $3 – $4 each — the N-100’s can run you $7 to $10…. I’d recommend checking out the local hardware store as well (Home depot, lowe’s)… They carry both, N-95 and N-100 (not sure if they are still in stock, though).

    Just spoke with an ED Nurse. She said the guy came to the emergency room and was sent home. He was home a few days and got much worse then was admitted. We are not ready.

  89. Frostbyte says:

    A former Food and Drug Administration chief scientist and top infectious disease specialist said that several people were exposed to the Ebola virus by the unidentified patient in Dallas, America’s first case, and it’s likely that many more will be infected.

    Dr. Jesse L. Goodman, now a professor of medicine at Georgetown University Medical Center, said while the nation shouldn’t panic, it’s best to prepare for the worst.

    “It is quite appropriate to be concerned on many fronts,” he said in a statement provided to Secrets. “First, it is a tragedy for the patient and family and, as well, a stress to contacts, health care workers and the community at large. Second, it appears several people were exposed before the individual was placed in isolation, and it is quite possible that one or more of his contacts will be infected,” he added.

    What’s more, he conceded that it was “only a matter of time” that the swift-killing African virus arrived in the U.S.

    “If anyone did not agree before, bringing the epidemic in Africa under control is an absolute emergency and requires a massive effort and global commitment now long overdue. This is a matter not just of preventing death and suffering in Africa, but, as this case brings home to the U.S., of global safety and security,” he warned.

    He also strongly suggested that the one case will not be the end.

    How to make your Thieves essential oil blend.

    It is important to not at this time order that the essential oils go into this blend is just as important as how much of each, so start at #1.

    40 drops clove bud essential oil
    36 drops lemon essential oil
    20 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
    16 drops eucalyptus essential oil
    10 drops rosemary essential oil

    In a glass amber bottle with either a normal lid, a dropper or a spray top, combine all oils, to make a larger amount at once just double amounts. Store just as you would any other essential oils, avoiding direct sunlight.

    • Mikey in N FL says:

      Thieves oil originated from around the 15th century, when the bubonic plague was running rampid through Europe and Asia. Four thieves from Europe, who were notoriously robbing the infectious dead bodies of all their possessions. They, miraculously, never contracted the highly infectious plague and this led to deep inquiry in court after they were caught and charged. The magistrate offered them a deal, their secret for a reduced sentence. Taking the deal, they told stories of their knowledge of essential oils and their powerful medicinal properties when combined in certain ways. This specific oil that they had created, concocted from aromatic herbs and oils, was HIGHLY EFFECTIVE in killing all of the airborne bacteria. In fact, in 1997, Weber State University did a study that found this oil to have a 99.96% success rate at killing airborne bacteria. We don’t know whether or not this story is true, but the essential oils are antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-infectious. They will stimulate the immune system, circulation and respiratory system, and help protect against the flu, colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throats, cuts, and more.

      “Research conducted at Weber State University in cooperation with D. Gary Young, as well as other documented research, indicates that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of many essential oils, especially those high in phenols, carcacrol, thymol, and terpenes. This, perhaps, offers a modern explanation why the Old Testament prophet Moses used aromatic substances to protect the Isrealites from the plagues that decimated ancient Egypt. It may also help us understand why a notorious group of theives, reputed to be spice traders and perfumers, was protected from the Black Plague as they robbed the bodies of the dead during the 15th century.” (Essential Oils Desk Reference, 4th Edition, p6)
