Obama is Wrong About Ebola Less Than 28 Days Later
I didn’t mean to make a joke about Ebola in the headline but the way this is all unfolding reminds me of the 2002 horror film, 28 Days Later.
It didn’t even take that long for Obama to be wrong…
In just two weeks, Obama proven completely wrong about Ebola
On Sept. 16, President Obama visited the headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The agency is the lead organization in the federal government’s efforts to prevent the introduction and spread of the Ebola virus into the United States, and Obama used his remarks there to update Americans on those efforts.
The chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States are “extremely low,” Obama said. U.S. are working with officials in Africa “to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States.” And then this:
In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick, and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared, and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely.
Obama added that in the unlikely event an Ebola case appeared in the United States, “we have world-class facilities and professionals ready to respond. And we have effective surveillance mechanisms in place.”
Now two weeks later, the president’s reassurances have turned out to be false.
And then there’s this:
If you’ve never seen 28 Days Later, it’s a great horror movie. You may not want to watch it now however, as it hits a little too close to home.
