CDC Ebola protocol fails again as another Dallas hospital worker tests positive for deadly disease

Ebola protocols

(NaturalNews) The federal government is once again to blame for potentially exposing hundreds of additional Americans to Ebola. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) told nurse Amber Jay Vinson, the second known case of Ebola in the U.S., that she could safely fly from Cleveland, Ohio, to Dallas, Texas, because her fever was below the official 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit threshold, only to later find out that she actually has Ebola.

Vinson, who provided care for the now-deceased Thomas Eric Duncan, the first known Ebola case to be diagnosed in the U.S., began to develop a slight fever while visiting her family near Akron. She had been planning her wedding there when she started to feel ill and proceeded to call the CDC to clarify whether or not it was safe for her to fly on a commercial airline.

Knowing that she had previously treated "patient zero" back in Dallas, a CDC representative reportedly told Vinson that, because her temperature was only 99.5 degrees F, she was not a risk to passengers. Vinson proceeded to travel as directed, only to later test positive for the deadly viral hemorrhagic disease. She is now being treated in the same isolation unit that missionaries Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were treated at in Atlanta, Georgia.

"This nurse, Nurse Vinson, did in fact call the CDC several times before taking that flight and said she has a temperature, a fever of 99.5, and the person at the CDC looked at a chart and because her temperature wasn't 100.4 or higher she didn't officially fall into the category of high risk," reports CBS Dallas/Fort Worth.

CDC impropriety helping to spread Ebola nationwide

There are only two possible explanations as to why the CDC bungled yet another Ebola case: incompetence or malevolence. Most people would probably choose to assume the former as the more comfortable option, but the CDC's constant shifting of protocol and duplicity in the matter increasingly suggests the latter.

Vinson was known to have come into direct contact with Duncan, inserting his catheters, drawing his blood and otherwise handling his bodily fluids just days before he died. Even though Vinson had a temperature below the official no-fly threshold, common sense dictates that she should have been isolated and monitored extra closely to ensure that the disease didn't spread further.

Because this didn't happen, hundreds of travelers onboard the same Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 that Vinson was on potentially touched the same overhead bins, used the same lavatories and breathed the same air, which may have circulated tiny droplets of Vinson's infected sneezes. Anyone else Vinson came into contact with on her way to Atlanta is also at risk.

"She should not have traveled on a commercial airline," admitted Dr. Thomas Frieden, the CDC ringleader who has been complicit in spreading conflicting information about the Ebola risk ever since the outbreak started.

"The CDC guidance in this setting outlines the need for controlled movement. That can include a charter plane; that can include a car; but it does not include public transport. We will from this moment forward ensure that no other individual who is being monitored for exposure undergoes travel in any way other than controlled movement."

According to CBS, Vinson had visited family and friends who work at Kent State University, her alma mater, during her time in Ohio. She did not, however, step foot on the campus directly, though her exact movements and locations are still being determined.
