And yet, despite the seriousness of this threat against humanity, we are now learning that "patient zero" Thomas Duncan was allowed to infect nurses and patients through disastrous failures in containment protocols at the Dallas hospital, where Ebola training for medical staffers was nothing more than an "optional seminar."
Nurses who observed these disastrous failures were threatened with being fired if they talked to the press. So now the truth about Ebola has become yet another cover-up in a nation where it is practically criminal to tell the truth about anything the government doesn't want to acknowledge as being real.
If you nearly double something every month, it doesn't take long for it to explode out of control. Imagine having a bank account that started in January with just $1,000 and magically doubled every month. In February, you'd have $2,000; in March you'd have $4,000 and so on. By December, you would have over $2 million sitting in the bank.
Ebola spreads in much the same way: exponentially. It isn't a simple linear increase; it's an exponential explosion that can grow from a small number of isolated patients to a global pandemic seemingly overnight.
The memo, obtained by CNN, says that troops will be monitored at the facility, tested for Ebola, and treated there if necessary.

The issue is particularly fraught for Democrats, given signs that President Obama’s dragging poll numbers could help Republicans take control of the Senate. Though Ebola is unlikely to move the needle in specific races, political strategists say it adds to the darkening public mood.
“The situation with Ebola and what’s going on in Syria and Iraq — all of this is creating a high level of anxiety among voters and a sense of uncertainty about the future,” said Democratic strategist Doug Thornell.
It added, "Syria totally rejects the establishment of a buffer zone on any part of its terrain under any pretext and also rejects the foreign military intervention on its soil."The ministry further noted, “The Turkish government, since the outset of the crisis in Syria, has been systematically carrying out everything that could disrupt Syria’s stability and jeopardize its sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
The statement also stressed that Damascus will take all necessary measures to protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
