How is everyone doing this lovely Friday?
Anyone have good plans for this weekend?
Ok so I am not really going to do that, but it seems like that gets more attention in the last 2 days than any veteran issue has ever gotten. Let alone now we are sending good healthy troops over to some country in Africa to help. How stupid can you get? Why send good healthy people over there? So we can put them at risk to get this junk?
Why don’t we do this….many other countries have done this so what are we waiting for?
Shut down all flights to and from those countries, any country around there for that matter. Deny entry into the USA that has been to that country in the past 6 months. Make them go through a 60 day quarantine before being allowed into this country.
As for the idiots running CDC can’t figure out how to have ONE standard for what people should wear treating these people. Let’s try this on for size just common since…if you ask me.
Once people come into the hospital with signs of Ebola the people treating the patient should go to level C protection
Level C Level C protection differs from Level B in the area of equipment needed for respiratory protection. The same type of garment used for Level B protection is worn for Level C. Level C protection allows for the use of respiratory protection equipment other than SCBA. This protection includes any of the various types of air-purifying respirators. Crew members should not use this level of protection unless the specific hazardous material is known and its concentration can be measured. Level C equipment does not offer the protection needed in an oxygen deficient atmosphere.
Once it is confirmed once that the person has it. They go into an air tight room, I forget what they call the rooms, but double air lock doors, scrubbers for the air coming out of it etc. The people going into the room with the patient must dawn Level A suits.
The highest level of protection against vapors, gases, mists, and particles is Level A, which consists of a fully encapsulating chemical entry suit with a full-facepiece self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) or a supplied air respirator (SAR) with an escape cylinder. A crew member must also wear boots with steel toes and shanks on the outside of the suit and specially selected chemical-resistant gloves for this level of protection. The breathing apparatus is worn inside (encapsulated within) the suit. To qualify as Level A protection, an intrinsically safe two-way radio is also worn inside the suit, often incorporating voice-operated microphones and an earpiece speaker for monitoring the operations channel.
As for the people that came in contact with the person tested positive with the person, well they go into 60 day quarantine also.
As for this “Dr” in NYC running around after coming back from treating people in Africa, and not thinking he had it. Come on you are a dr. are you really that stupid? Or do you just want to expose that many people to Ebola? If this guy lives I say we take his license away where he can’t treat people if he is that stupid.
I just don’t understand why. WHY!!! Why do we have to be the ones to go help these people in Africa? Why don’t we just air drop supplies into them. I don’t see why we need to risk our soldiers’ lives to help these people. What good will come out of it? Is it worth it? If congress and the president want to send troops I say put whoever wants them there out there first. Make them lead the way for 30 or so days. If they think it is safe let them do it.
Why do we put troops or make them do things that Washington people would not do themselves. Hardly any of them served in a combat zone. None of them are willing to go outside this country or even in this country without a detail of at least 10 men to protect them. Stop being a coward! Lead from the front you …..
Ok I am getting too pissed off at the people in DC so I am going to end this post here.
Keep fighting the fight!
Don’t EVER give up.
Together we can save lives #TWCSL
