Hospital backtracks, now admits it knew Ebola patient’s travel history

http://twitter.com/#!/EagleFriar22/status/518495278643433472 Incompetent is a little kind at this point. It turns out that doctors at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas did know that Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan had traveled to Liberia when they sent him home on September 26, forcing the hospital to “retract” its earlier assertion that a glitch with its electronic medical records system was to blame: Dallas hospital retracts explanation for missed #Ebola diagnosis; patient now critical: http://t.co/w5rttVdFfn pic.twitter.com/Gv3rfUGkSI — Yahoo (@Yahoo) October 4, […]

Brad Thor nails it on why we should be worried about Ebola

http://twitter.com/#!/BradThor/status/517070336093728769 He’s right about zombie movies and yesterday’s CDC briefing on Ebola was straight out of Hollywood, but should we ignore our concerns and trust the Obama administration when it says everything is under control?

Here’s when bowling Ebola-positive doc reportedly felt ill (Hint: Not today)

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/525455389220159488 Bin. Go. Protocol breaches that aren’t protocol breaches. Self-monitoring snafus. What’s next?

Henry Waxman turns Ebola travel ban question into immigration issue

http://twitter.com/#!/CaseyMattoxADF/status/522801100026826753 Rep. Henry Waxman continues to amaze at a House subcommittee hearing on the Ebola response. Waxman’s already lied by connecting Ebola in the U.S. to budget cuts, and when the question of potential travel bans arose, Waxman implied such a move would be anti-immigration: So Henry Waxman just compared a travel ban to immigration restrictionism. You go right ahead and make the restrictionists' case for them — John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) October 16, 2014 Yes, Henry Waxman […]
