Media panics over measles cases, but gives government a pass for housing possible Ebola patients in hotels open to the public

In the U.S. today, you can’t even attend public school unless you’re fully vaccinated for a battery of mostly mild childhood conditions (or unless you use an appropriate vaccine exemption that is in danger of being eliminated). But the federal government now feels that it’s no big deal to ship in possible Ebola victims and house them at unprotected public hotels in major U.S. cities for “monitoring,” according to new reports.

Eleven American aid workers from West Africa who may have been exposed to Ebola were recently brought into the U.S. and distributed to Omaha, Nebraska; Washington, D.C.; and Atlanta, Georgia. Each of these locations is home to a special biosafety hospital that officials says is properly equipped to handle the treatment of Ebola patients without putting others at risk.

But rather than actually be admitted to these hospitals, the individuals suspected of having Ebola are being placed in hotels and other housing units near the hospital facilities, while officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) supposedly monitor them for symptoms. This puts everyone else who stays in these hotels, as well as hotel staff and housekeeping, at possible risk of Ebola infection.

One of the 11 patients is said to have had “potential” exposure to the Ebola patient currently being treated at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) hospital in Maryland, while four others had “more exposure than the others” to the patient. The remaining six had lesser degrees of potential exposure, but all of them are being monitored for Ebola symptoms.

Officials say that the unnamed NIH Ebola patient has degraded from “serious” to “critical” condition, while at least one of the 11 possible Ebola victims, who was being housed on the campus of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, has since been moved to a special biocontainment unit for treatment after exhibiting Ebola symptoms.

Feel free to go nuts about measles – but Ebola? No worries!
