Ebola Spreads In Dallas Hospital As Health Worker Contracts Deadly Virus


A health worker who cared for Ebola “patient zero” Thomas Duncan at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital is now confirmed to have been infected with Ebola.

The worker, whose name has not yet been released, “had been wearing protective gear during treatment of the patient” reports Reuters. [1]

As Natural News has been reporting since day one, CDC protective gear recommendations are wholly inadequate to protect workers from Ebola, a level-4 biohazard virus with no known treatment or cure.

This infection is the second high-profile Ebola transmission among health care workers in first-world hospitals who were wearing CDC-recommended protective gear. The other case involved a nurse in Spain. What these two cases clearly indicate is that the protective gear being worn by these health workers is insufficient to protect them from Ebola. Many infectious disease experts, along with Natural News, have been recommending full face respirators at a minimum, with positive-pressure “space suits” being a better choice.

In the U.S. Army, virologists wear positive pressure “space suits” when interacting with level-4 bio-hazards such as Ebola and Marburg.

The following photo shows a typical level-4 bio-hazard “space suit.” Note the puffy, inflated look of the suit which comes from the positive pressure air source that keeps the suit at a higher pressure than the surrounding room:

CDC blames the victim

The CDC, which has remained in a state of dangerous denial about Ebola transmission vectors from the very start, is now blaming the health care worker for the infection.

Without even conducting any investigation of the matter, CDC director Tom Frieden leaped to the conclusion that “a breach in protocol resulted in the second Ebola infection in the U.S.” according to KPTV.

But the press is also reporting that “she was in full protective gear while caring for Duncan.” So instead of admitting that the gear is inadequate for dealing with a level-4 biohazard, the CDC is blaming the victims and implying that they somehow made a mistake.

The CDC remains utterly unable to admit that Ebola requires a level-4 biohazard gear response, which includes full face respirators and positive pressure suits.

Ebola is clearly not “under control”

This outbreak of Ebola in Dallas also demonstrates that far from the claims of the CDC at the White House, the U.S. government does not have the Ebola outbreak “under control.”

If it were under control, it wouldn’t be spreading, obviously. CDC director Tom Friedan even admitted more cases may soon be confirmed in Dallas, saying “Unfortunately it is possible in the coming days we will see additional cases of Ebola…” [3]

Some in the media have also claimed that Ebola is “difficult to catch” and no one should be concerned about it. But if it’s difficult to catch, then how did a fully-trained health care worker wearing CDC-recommended protective gear catch it? If it’s difficult to catch, then how did thousands of West Africans catch it accidentally? And why are the number of Ebola infections currently doubling about every 3 – 4 weeks?

What’s clear from this latest news is that Ebola is very easy to catch. And even though the CDC told us that Ebola would never spread in the United States because we have the most advanced hospitals in the world, this outbreak of Ebola just happened under the roof of one of those “advanced” hospitals in Dallas.

Clearly, the Ebola virus doesn’t care how expensive your nation’s health care system is. It’s going to spread at every opportunity for the simple reason that it can.
