LUBBOCK, Texas — At least 13 men from Africa with terrorist-related records illegally entered Canada from the U.S. since 2010, according to a leaked Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Intelligence Information Report exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas. The data pertains only to one small region of the vast U.S.-Canadian border.

The report reveals that as of September 9, 2014, there have been 155 encounters in the area ‘involving 344 ethnic Somalis, 21 ethnic Ethiopians, five ethnic Kenyans, two ethnic Djiboutians, two ethnic Nigerians, and one ethnic Sudanese and Congolese subjects who have attempted or succeeded in entering Canada illegally near the Pembina, ND Port of Entry (POE) since June 2010. These encounters INCLUDE 13 SUBJECTS WITH TERRORIST-RELATED RECORDS….’

Gee, it was just two weeks ago that Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, shot down reports of terrorists crossing our borders, “‘I’ve heard reports to that effect. I don’t know the accuracy of the reports or how much credence to give them. But I’ve heard reports to that effect,’ Johnson said at the time.”

Finally, it is reprehensible that the Obama administration exerts so much energy in their efforts often failed to deceive the American people.

Quarantine Camps from Conspiracy Theory to State Policy (UPDATED)

Tags

, , , , , ,


UPDATE:

Succumbing to pressure from the White House, Governor Andrew “no cohunes” Cuomo loosened Ebola protocols that he along with New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie put into place two days ago.

Healthcare workers returning from Ebola-stricken countries after caring for Ebola patients will endure their 21-day quarantine in the comfort of their homes during which New York State’s health department monitor their condition.

In addition to allowing the quarantined to receive guests, enter the welfare state. New York State will provide financial assistance to the quarantined, i.e., food, rent, mortgage, etc. See: New York State Releases Fact Sheet on State Screening Protocols at JFK International Airport

Killing two birds with one stone (no pun intended) aka Process of Elimination.

#1, just two days ago, it was we meaning Cuomo and Christie. Suddenly, it is every governor has to do what he has to do. Did Cuomo who plans to run for president in 2016 just throw Chris Christie under the bus and sink Christie’s 2016 plans?

(Christie who walked right into it up to his neck should have known better. I am tired of stupid Republicans falling for Progressive dirty tricks.

Imagine the fundraising and get out the vote emails being dispatched this week by Progressives attacking, tyrannical Republicans violating the Constitutional liberties and quarantining a nurse who just spent the past month caring for dying Ebola patients against her will for three weeks.)

#2, where will the money come from to subsidize quarantined healthcare workers, friends and their families?

#3, why couldn’t Cuomo leave Obama out of this?

Florida Governor, Rick Scott, also imposed 21-day quarantine but the details of Scott’s edict remains sketchy.

 

ORIGINAL POST:

On Friday, October 24, Illinois governor, Pat Quinn, signed an order imposing a 21-day “home” quarantine for “high risk individuals”, i.e., anyone who came in direct contact with a person(s) infected with the Ebola virus in Liberia, Sierra Leona and Guinea.

Chicago Tribune

‘This protective measure is too important to be voluntary,’ Quinn said in a statement. ‘While we have no confirmed cases of the Ebola virus in Illinois, we will continue to take every safeguard necessary to protect first responders, health care workers and the people of Illinois…’

In addition, Governors of New Jersey, Chris Christie and New York, Andrew Cuomo (to the disdain of NYC mayor, Bill de Blasio) imposed 21-day mandatory quarantine on healthcare workers returning to the United States from Ebola-stricken countries.

Governor.NY.gov

There will also be a mandatory quarantine for any individual who had direct contact with an individual infected with the Ebola virus while in one of the three West African nations (Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea), including any medical personnel having performed medical services to individuals infected with the Ebola virus. Additionally, all individuals with travel history to the affected regions of West Africa, with no direct contact with an infected person, will be actively monitored by public health officials and, if necessary, quarantined, depending on the facts and circumstances of their particular situation.

Oops, Barack Obama who refused to impose a temporary ban on travel from Ebola-afflicted nations has just been upstaged.

In any event, not to worry folks, according to New York City’s Communist mayor, Bill de Blasio and staff who are in a snit because Cuomo didn’t seek approval from his underlings prior to imposing a 21 day mandatory quarantine. (See: De Blasio presser highlights: Ebola ‘hard disease to contract'; Fiancée ‘quarantined'; Bowling alley ‘cleared’)

SIDEBAR

I should mention that Commie Bill is the same evil sob who killed “Staten Island Chuck,” NYC’s groundhog and faced the wrath of parents (and teachers) last winter, when during a state of emergency and major snowstorm, he refused to close New York City public schools.

END OF SIDEBAR

Supposedly, federal officials were caught off guard and not thrilled with Cuomo and Christie’s directives to impose the 21-day mandatory quarantine even though it is Obama’s refusal to impose a temporary travel ban on Ebola-stricken nations and his failed Ebola-screening protocols that led to regulations that are more rigorous by the states.

Obama who opposes state sovereignty dispatched his minions out to Sunday morning to attack and voice strong opposition to the directives put in place by governors and has been putting pressure on NY and New Jersey to rescind the order for mandatory quarantine.

Ebola Nurse Quarantined in New Jersey Intends to File Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit, Her Attorney Says

 

Kaci Hickox, a nurse and the first person quarantined under Christie’s directive who worked with Doctors without Borders caring for Ebola patients in Sierra Leone is even less thrilled.

After landing at Newark Liberty International Airport in Friday Hickox whose timing some would say could not be worse allegedly tested negative in a preliminary test for Ebola which prompted her being placed in mandatory quarantine for 21 days at a New Jersey hospital.

Hickox upset from her ordeal and the mandatory quarantine penned an article in Dallas News about her maltreatment by the CDC and other big government bureaucrats who interviewed her at Newark Airport. Hickox also mentioned her concerns about the treatment of other healthcare workers returning to the USA after treating patients with Ebola in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.

Excerpt:

This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me. I am scared about how health care workers will be treated at airports when they declare that they have been fighting Ebola in West Africa. I am scared that, like me, they will arrive and see a frenzy of disorganization, fear and, most frightening, quarantine….

Read full article

Hickox alleges that when her temperature was first taken, it registered normal, 98.6 but after hours of interrogation by officials, her temperature registered 101, which prompted her detainment.

At the hospital, her temperature taken by a doctor and re-checked, registered normal again, 98.6.

Trying to be objective here, but this flaming Progressive elitist with a sense of entitlement is hitting a nerve. Two days down, nineteen more to go.

Sound chaotic? Yes. Chaos goes hand in hand with big government.

Finally, what are the odds that the detainment of Kaci Hickox was a test balloon and foretelling of things to come?

Natural News

It didn’t take long for officials to realize that the entire idea of a self-quarantine is completely bogus for the simple reason that nobody follows it….
If a forced quarantine is justified for one person, it can be justified for one million

Now we live in a nation where public sentiment openly supports government-enforced quarantines of people who might carry Ebola. Notice how quickly this all happened? Some might even point out the problem-reaction-solution overlay to all this, proposing that Ebola has been hyped up for precisely the purpose of rolling out a medical police state in America….

Continue Reading

On July 31, 2014, Barack Obama amended Executive Order 13295: Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases to read as follows:

Section 1. Amendment to Executive Order 13295. Based upon the recommendation of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Acting Surgeon General, and for the purposes set forth in section 1 of Executive Order 13295 of April 4, 2003, as amended by Executive Order 13375 of April 1, 2005, section 1 of Executive Order 13295 shall be further amended by replacing subsection (b) with the following:
‘(b) Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza….’

Then there is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which Obama signed into law on December 31, 2011 while Americans were reveling in New Year’s Eve festivities.

The NDAA gives Obama the right to detain Americans indefinitely and although amended every year since, this part of the legislation remains intact.

The NDAA and Executive Order 13295, is not even the

Until this day, Obama refuses to impose a temporary travel ban against Ebola-stricken nations. Instead, people traveling from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone must enter the United States through one of five designated ports of entry to undergo a screening process to check for signs of the Ebola virus in travelers.

Finally, who would have thought (although I did, many times) that quarantined camps would go from conspiracy theory to state policy so quickly…..even if the Obama administrations manipulated circumstances to get us there.

Union Fat Cats are One Percenters

Labor Union Report

Watchdog.org’s Jason Hart (an occasional contributor at LaborUnionReport.com) has done yeoman’s work in compiling Labor Department data exposing the hypocrisy of today’s union bosses.

Whilst they fund “grass-roots” campaigns like Occupy Wall Street and Fight for $15, and use class-warfare rhetoric, today’ union bosses are, in reality, doing quite well raking in the big bucks—all paid for by their members’ union dues.

Here is Big Labor’s Top 100 (with emphasis added):

While unions call for tax and minimum-wage increases to fix “income inequality,” reports to the U.S. Department of Labor reveal 472 union officers and employees were paid more than $250,000 in 2013.

In all, America’s 100 highest-paid union officers and employees received $54.8 million taken from workers last year.

Union officials lived even higher on the hog in fiscal 2013 than the year before, when 428 union officers and employees were paid more than $250,000 and the top 100 received compensation totaling $52.1 million….

Continue

Union fat cats live high on the hog, yet their minions and sock puppets declare war on the wrong entities. If they really want to take one percenters to task, they have only to look within starting with the likes of Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers who earned $560,000 in 2013.

Let us not forget AFL-CIO thug, Richard Trumka, who earned $322,131, the equivalent of a $154.87 per hour while pushing for a higher minimum wage.

Trolling for $$$$, Jeb Bush’s Deliberate Omission

BeFunky_null_3 Jeb Bush 002

 

As reported in an article written by Shane Vander Hart of Truth in American Education, Jeb Bush less than two weeks ago dispatched correspondence trolling for dollars for his organization Excellence in Education National.

Mistake Number 1: While attempting to sound like a Conservative, the Establishment Republican expressed his alleged concerns about the direction in which our nation is heading in the language of Progressives.

Mistake Number 2 is what Bush, a Progressive Republican failed to address in his trolling for dollars dispatch.

Excerpt:

screenshot jeb bush trolling for dollars

 

While acknowledging a failed education system under the jackboot of the federal government, like a true Progressive, Bush fails to mention that what he is offering is more of the same on steroids.

Moreover, a no point in his correspondence does Bush mention his signature education initiative, COMMON CORE.

So if Common Core is so great, why did Bush who plans to run of president in 2016 deliberately omit it from his dispatch?

My guess is that Bush knows we’re on to him. See for yourself (below).

Ten Glaring Ebola Contradictions Told by Government Authorities who Think We’re all Just Stupid

(NaturalNews) New York Governor Cuomo began yesterday’s Ebola press conference by gently waving his hand at reporters and uttering, “These are not the droids you’re looking for.”

When that didn’t work, he pulled out a pocket watch and let it swing back and forth like a pendulum, slowly repeating “Ebola is hard to catch. Ebola is hard to catch. You are feeling sleepy…”

As anybody with a brain has figured out by now, everything we’re being told about Ebola by government authorities is a distortion, a contradiction or an outright lie. But what are the best lies and contradictions we’ve heard so far?

A health worker who treated so-called Ebola cases in West Africa has been locked in an iso ward of a medical facility for 21 days, after she arrived back in New Jersey.

She had no symptoms—but after being put in isolation, she developed a fever.

Many people would.

This is now official emergency policy for New York and New Jersey.

Contact with someone who “has Ebola”=21 days in lockdown.

This is where the irrelevant diagnostic tests come in. That quarantined person, registering positive on an antibody or PCR test, will be labeled “Ebola”—even though the tests say nothing about Ebola, as I’ve described in past articles.

The next step will be locking people up for 21 days, if they came into contact with someone who “might have” Ebola.

Common Core the GLOBALIZATION of EDUCATION

Many would be surprised to learn that Common Core is neither a state-led nor a federal led initiative run by Barack Obama.

Common Core is a global initiative as proven by the MENA Common Core Conference taking place this weekend (October 24-25, 2014) not in New York City, not in Los Angeles and definitely not in Washington, DC but Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

MENA Common Core Conference

The 2nd Annual MENA Common Core Conference will provide professional development to American curriculum schools in the region on effectively employing Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in the classroom. Our mission is to unite for one common goal: To be the most successful schools and teachers for our students while implementing CCSS.

On October 24 and 25, hundreds of schools, leadership teams, and teachers from across the region will gather in Dubai, to learn about the Common Core State Standards, share curricula and best practices, and network with each other. The event will unite administrators, teachers, and schools around improving teaching and learning for all of our students.

The MENA Common Core Conference is sponsored by the Middle East and North Africa and organized by KDSL, “a Dubai-based education company founded by Kevin Simpson and Alison Burrows. KDSL partners with organizations around the world to increase student achievement, teacher knowledge, and leadership in education.”

Below is a screenshot of the leading partners supporting the MENA Core Conference in Dubai.

As you may or may not be aware, one the corporations mentioned above, AMIDEAST suspended by the Egyptian government for the 2014-2015 school year because of its radical Islamist ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Clearly if our government made the interest of Americans their primary agenda, such affiliation would have set off alarms. Then again, with the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House, maybe not.

On the staff of AMIDEAST:

Ibrahim El Houdaiby
Ibrahim El Houdaiby is a senior researcher at House of Wisdom Center for Strategic Studies. A graduate of the American University in Cairo (2005), he holds a B.A. in Political Science and is currently finishing his M.A. in Political Science and Development Studies. He also earned a diploma in Islamic Studies from the High Institute of Islamic Studies in 2010, where he is currently pursuing his M.A. in Islamic Shariah. Mr. Ibrahim El Houdaiby is a leader of the emerging generation of political and social activists and formerly associated with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, the oldest religiously-founded group of its kind in the Middle East. He was a past board member of www.ikhwanweb.com, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Official English Website. He writes a weekly column for the Arabic Daily Shorouk, and is a freelance columnist in English language Al-Ahram Online. His research focuses on Islamic movements, democratization, and political economy of the Middle East. Ibrahim El Houdaiby joined the AMIDEAST teaching staff in 2012.

In November 2004, Bill Gates signed an agreement with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

UNESCO has been pushing to establish their World Core Curriculum into schools throughout the United States for decades.

Pursuant to an article written by Phyllis Schlafly, Eagle Forum entitled,Bill Gates Teams Up With UNESCO” dated November 30, 2005:

President Reagan withdrew the United States from UNESCO on December 31, 1984 because it was corrupt, anti-Western, and a vehicle for far-left propaganda. Unfortunately, President George W. Bush rejoined UNESCO in 2003.

UNESCO’s efforts in the 1960s and 1970s to influence U.S. school curriculum were unsuccessful. But now UNESCO has found a sugar daddy.

On November 17, 2004 at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, UNESCO signed a 26-page “Cooperation Agreement” with Microsoft Corporation to develop a “master curriculum (Syllabus)” for teacher training in information technologies based on standards, guidelines, benchmarks, and assessment techniques. The Agreement states that the Syllabus will “form the basis for deriving training content to be delivered to teachers,” and “UNESCO will explore how to facilitate content development…”

Following the signing of the Agreement, UNESCO Director General Koichiro Matsuura explained it in a speech. One of its goals, he said, is “fostering web-based communities of practice including content development and worldwide curricula reflecting UNESCO values.” No doubt that is agreeable to Bill Gates because the Agreement states that “Microsoft supports the objectives of UNESCO as stipulated in UNESCO’s Constitution.”

worldwide curricula reflecting UNESCO values” Translates to: A universal workforce “global citizens.”

The New American

According to the agency, it is all linked to UN Agenda 21. In addition to gathering up unprecedented amounts of data on everyone, the global “education reform” movement is essentially seeking to instill radical new values in children — turning them into “global citizens” with views inherently at odds with Biblical Christianity — to facilitate the total regimentation of human society. Countless programs and initiatives such as “Education for All” are working toward that goal.

Rest assured, America in knowing that our big corporations, the federal government and so-called educators are working in collaboration with the United Nations in an effort to fundamentally transform our youth in mindless drones for the good of the collective (sarcasm).

“Godzilla” Sunspot Takes Aim: X-Class Flare Thought To Be Responsible For Widespread Power Outages and Internet Problems

Tags

Active Region 2192

Active Region 2192

 

SHTFplan, by Mac Slavo

A massive sunspot dubbed ‘Active Region 2192′ has rotated into an earth-facing position. NASA says the Jupiter-sized magnetic anomaly on the sun is crackling with energy and several days ago it fired off an X-class flare right in earth’s direction. Then, yesterday, it launched another flare that was measured to be five times more powerful than the first.

Though the classification of both flares was fairly low and rated in the 1.0 to 2.0 X-class range, the earth’s power and internet infrastructure has experienced some unusual effects over the last 48 hours.

As of this morning, numerous power outages have been reported by internet providers, electrical utility companies, cable companies and even large inter-networks like MSN.com and Amazon. The outages are being reported by users on Twitter all over the northern hemisphere, including from Canada all the way down to Boston. Many of the companies involved have suggested that the outages were planned or the result of wind storms, but what is curious is that at the very same time all of these outages were being reported on earth, the National Weather Service’s National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) announced that their space-based satellite systems stopped reporting data.

Coincidence? Perhaps.

But an alternate theory is that the solar flares emitted by AR 2192 have something to do with it. How else can we explain widespread outages for literally hundreds of thousands of people occurring almost simultaneously at key utility and internet nodes across thousands of miles on earth, and happening in tandem with a breakdown in communications from the NCEP’s weather monitoring satellite?

Video: Sunspot AR2192 causes Internet & Power Outages Worldwide:

(Via Steve Quayle)

An X-class solar flare designated in the 1.0 to 2.0 range doesn’t usually take down power grids and communications infrastructure, though they have been known to temporarily knock out satellites and cause problems with Global Positioning Systems and radio communications.

The outages being reported by users are more than likely temporary without any permanent damage to the physical equipment involved in carrying the signals from point-to-point.

However, historical examples of large-scale outages resulting from solar flares have been well documented. In 1859 a massive solar flare known as the “Carrington Event” left newly developed Telegraph systems inoperable and reportedly even led them to explode and set stations on fire. In 1989 a geo-magnetic storm caused the collapse of Quebec’s hydro electric power station. The flare that took only 90 seconds to bring the electric company to its knees was a fairly powerful x15-Class discharge.

Given these examples, it’s not out of the question to suggest that a solar flare directly targeting Earth could potentially take out many modern day systems hooked into the grid.

NYC Doctor who Treated Ebola Patients in Guinea Contracts Disease

Tags

, ,


screenshot craig spencer new york city ebola patient

 

Well, that did not take long at all.

Dr. Craig Spencer who for a while worked with Doctors without Borders in Guinea tending to those afflicted with the Ebola virus returned to New York City several days ago.

As of Thursday afternoon, Spencer who for the past six days self-monitored and supposedly “self-quarantined” himself keeping an eye out for symptoms of the Ebola virus until this morning when he developed a fever has tested positive for Ebola.

The doctor is presently under care and quarantined at Bellevue Hospital.

According to Governor, Mario Cuomo, Spencer “was only exposed to very few people…” due to precautions the doctor had taken on his own.

Last night New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio and Governor Mario Cuomo held a press conference to assured concerned New Yorkers that there is no need for New Yorkers, visitors and tourists to worry.

Not so. In spite of feeling tired for three days traveled Spencer from his Harlem residence by taxi, had dinner at a restaurant, visited an elevated park and two bowling lanes in addition to traveling on three of New York City’s subways lines, i.e., the #1, A and L trains.

While sources said Spencer claimed to have self-quarantined after feeling ill, he was at a pair of bowling spots in Willliamsburgh, Brooklyn on Wednesday. He used Uber taxis, went to the High Line, a restaurant and took the subway — the No. 1, A and L trains — to get around, officials said.

The three subway lines rode by Spencer travel through the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens making numerous connections throughout the City in every direction on a system that attracts 4.3 million riders a day.

NYDN

De Blasio, at a press conference with by Gov. Andrew Cuomo shortly after the results were released, said that there was no reason for anyone to worry about an outbreak.

‘We want to state at the outset there is no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed,’ de Blasio said. ‘Ebola is an extremely hard disease to contract. It is transmitted only through contact with an infected person’s blood or bodily fluids, not through casual contact.’

‘He was only exposed to very few people,’ Cuomo said. ‘He was taking precautions on his own…’

READ FULL ARTICLE

 

 

I can assure you that not even halfway through the conference, New Yorkers began to worry. After all, de Blasio is the same schmuck who refused to close New York City public schools during a blizzard last winter while at the same time insisting that the streets were cleaned and safe to walk in.

While Spencer is in an isolation unit at Bellevue Hospital, the repercussions of his actions are unfolding.

Although the Uber taxi driver and passengers who entered the vehicle after Spencer are not at risk (according to the CDC), one of the bowling alleys (the Gutter) that Spencer visited is now closed and a scheduled concert canceled.

The Elephant in the Room

Did Spencer complete his tour in Guinea? Or was it ended because he was aware that he might have contracted the virus? Did Spencer prior to showing symptoms suspect that he might have contracted the Ebola virus? Is that the reason for his return to New York City?

Also not mentioned is the fact that Spencer got through the so-called Ebola safeguards at JFK Airport guaranteed to work by many in the Obama administration. FAIL.

Travel bans must be into place for those Ebola-stricken nations and those returning to the United States from those nations must adhere to a 21 or 42 day quarantine – not self-quarantine – QUARANTINE.

Finally, we can now add Mali to the list of Ebola-stricken nations now that a 2 year old girl whose father died of Ebola has contracted the disease.

On a lighter note, be thankful for Twitter.

Silly NYPD Cops Secure Area around Ebola Doc’s Apt then Throw Masks, etc. into Public Trash Bin

Tags

, , ,


BeFunky_screenshot nypd throws masks, gloves and tape protective gear into street corner trash bin.jpg

 

While waiting for confirmation that Doctor Craig Spencer had tested positive for the Ebola virus, two NYPD officers were dispatched to cordon off the area around the doctor’s apartment.

It is what happens after that that will is scary.

After leaving the premises, the officers headed to the trash bin located at the corner of the block where their vehicle was located.

Upon arrival, they begin to remove their protective gear, (which is no protection at all when it comes to the Ebola virus) only discard everything in the public trash bin, gloves, masks and all.

 

Taking advantage of a good crisis, New Yorkers should expect the NYPD’s labor union to demand biohazard bags for the officers….and a raise but not necessarily in that order. H/t the DailyMail.

Trio Thugs Mug Woman in Crown Heights

 

New York Daily News

Three brutes were caught on camera viciously assaulting an unsuspecting 21-year-old in a rapidly gentrifying area of Brooklyn, according to a video released by police Monday.

As the woman walks by the treacherous trio in Crown Heights on Oct. 2, one of them grabs her by the chest, slams her into a storefront on Franklin Ave. near Prospect Pl. and begins punching her.

After the woman falls to the pavement, one of the men takes her phone while the two others rip her purse out of her hand….

As reported by Gothamist, the 21-year-old female is in stable condition at Methodist Hospital “with a broken nose and lacerations to her face.”

RANT:

Not that it will make anyone feel better but the thugs who committed this crime will get theirs.

Taking into account the neighborhood where these animals live or hang out and/or prey dictates the odds that this pond scum will end up the recipient of a bullet(s), machete or prison sentence before long.

While Franklin Avenue and Prospect Place is allegedly undergoing gentrification, the only people would move into this neighborhood are young Communist elites suffering from white guilt.

Of course, that does not justify the victimization of this woman but walk through this neighborhood at 2 a.m. in the morning is dangerous and EXTREMELY UNWISE.

For several weeks, the CDC has pounded the necessity of a 21-day quarantine period for anyone who may have been affected with the Ebola virus. The question, which very few have asked the CDC, an arm of administration that appears anti-quarantine and refuses to impose a temporary travel ban against Ebola-stricken nations, is why 21 days?

Professor Charles Haas, PhD of Drexel College of Engineering, in a new study suggests that a 21-day Ebola virus quarantine period does not cut it when attempting to eliminate the spread of Ebola.

Haas’s study “On the Quarantine Period for Ebola Virus,” recently published in PLOS Currents: Outbreaks looks at the murky basis for our knowledge about the virus, namely previous outbreaks in Africa in 1976 (Zaire) and 2000 (Uganda) as well as the first 9 months of the current outbreak.

In both cases, data gathered by the World Health Organization reported a 2-21 day incubation period for the virus –meaning that after 21 days if the individual hasn’t presented symptoms they are likely not to be infected or contagious. This is likely the genesis of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 21-day quarantine period, but there is little indication from the CDC as to what other considerations played into this policy.

‘Twenty-one days has been regarded as the appropriate quarantine period for holding individuals potentially exposed to Ebola Virus to reduce risk of contagion…
