CDC Refusing to Divulge Where 6 Patients Tested for Ebola are in the US

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Centers for Disease Control had tested six patients across the nation for the Ebola virus. But, even as the CDC has admitted testing these six patients the agency is refusing to inform the nation about just where all those suspected cases of Ebola are located.

After some confusion on August 5 where reports seemed to indicate that there were six patients in New York being tested for Ebola, I revealed on Breitbart that, while the CDC did say there were six patients being tested, the agency didn’t locate them all in New York. It became clear that the initial stories were incorrect and that it wasn’t six in New York but six spread out across the country.

New York’s Mr. Sinai Hospital confirmed that one such patient was isolated there and New York health officials reiterated that the patient at Mt. Sinai was the only one in the state being tested for the Ebola virus.

Other reports found that another patient appeared in Ohio and a third in Maryland. But the whereabouts of the other three patients is still unknown.

Breitbart reached out to the CDC but the agency’s Director Public Affairs declined to report where the other patients tested for Ebola are located.

“The six previous tests were all negative and sporadic in time and place. Mount Sinai test still pending testing at CDC,” the public affairs director said to Breitbart in an email late on Tuesday night.

This means that somewhere in the country there are at least three patients whose symptoms alarmed healthcare providers enough to test them for Ebola but officials are thus far refusing to inform the nation on where these patients are located.

    Americans are a bunch of pussies continually shitting themselves from fear. Ebola is not very contagious, there is not going to be an epidemic. The only reason it spreads in Africa is because of lack of hygiene.

    • Retired military

      If it is airborne (and that is a big IF) than it could conceiveably kill millions. Ebola has about a 90% fatality rate once it is contracted.
      Today’s airports are a biological disaster waiting to happen if a disease proves to be airborne.
      Of course as long as it doesn’t affect Chico than there is no worries.

      • LiberalNightmare

        Chico will be among the first to go. Anyone who spends that much time with his head up his ass should worry more about hygiene.

      • jim_m

        It’s a respiratory illness in pigs (and therefore airborne) but not in humans or primates (where it is a blood borne pathogen).

    • jim_m

      Not true. Ebola is communicated by blood or body fluids. If you come into contact with those it is relatively easy to get. It is not a lack of hygiene, as our resident bigot claims. Only a big time racist would jump on the stereotype that black people are dirty. One of the major reasons that Ebola spreads rapidly throughout western Africa is the tradition of cleansing the body before burial. This activity brings the relatives performing it into contact with the victim’s blood and/or other body fluids.

      But of course Chico would rather tell everyone that the reason Ebola spreads is because black people and particularly black Africans are dirty and lack basic hygiene.

      • Commander_Chico

        Usually you’re not coming into contact with blood or bodily fluids unless you’re intimate with them or they seriously lack hygiene.

        Your political correctness is quaint.

        • Retired military

          Ebola causes you to bleed out of your body orifices. That includes eyes, nose, mouth, etc.

          If by intimate you mean having sex than you are totally clueless but then again that is nothing new.
          How do you think the doctors and nurses got Ebola? By screwing them??

        • jim_m

          Your racism is repugnant.

          It doesn’t matter what their hygiene is. HIV is transmitted by blood or body fluids. No one has ever said that it is a risk of poor hygiene. No one has said so because it is irrelevant.

          What you are showing is ignorance mixed with pure racism.

        • warnertoddhuston

          Scientists suspect that a man caught and died from Ebola by touching a phone owned by an infected, dying man. So, your claims are untrue.

        • Retired military

          Guess folks shouldnt become intimate with walls.

        Kinda like HIV?

    You want interesting times – imagine if an Ebola-infected, contagious Muslim goes on the Hajj.

  • CaptainNed

    Six negative tests. Why does anyone care where they are?

    • Retired military

      Never heard of a false negative have you? How about govt coverups? Govt lies?

      • Jason Lemire

        well for all you tin foil hats out there, in 21 days or so it’d be so large or numerous cases it’d leak some how. So keep your tin foil tuned in.

        • Retired military

          No tin foil hat here. Just a realist.
          Do I think Ebola will be a large problem in the US in the next 6 months? 99.9% chance no.
          Can it be ? 99.9% chance yes.
          Do I think the govt is going to be 100% honest and truthful with us about it either way? Absolutely not.
          I just dont think (from what I have read) that Ebola has mutated yet to be a large scale threat to the U.S. via airborne transmission. Could that change? Yes. If it does than heaven help us.

          No tin foil hats here:

          The man who brought the Ebola virus to Nigeria probably knew he was infected. Surveillance video of Patrick Sawyer before boarding his flight at Liberia’s James Sprigg Payne’s Airport showed “Mr. Sawyer lying flat on his stomach on the floor in the corridor of the airport and seemed to be in ‘excruciating pain.’ The footage showed Mr. Sawyer preventing people from touching him.”
          Upon being told he had Ebola, Mr. Sawyer went into a rage, denying and objecting to the opinion of the medical experts. “He was so adamant and difficult that he took the tubes from his body and took off his pants and urinated on the health workers, forcing them to flee.

          …Much of the coverage has centered on the epidemic in Liberia and Nigeria, because these countries are relatively accessible to English speaking journalists. But we have no idea what is happening in Sierra Leone or Guinea, which is one of the most corrupt countries on earth. Officials claim only about 1,000 people have died from Ebola in West Africa so far, ‘not many’ in such a vast region. But this completely underrates the real danger. The relevant population against which such casualties must be measured are the medical personnel. They are being wiped out. Africa has a very limited store of scientific, medical and technical human capital and once these irreplaceables are killed or intimidated then the man issuing the medical exit visas will be an illiterate with a rubber stamp.

          …Perhaps Ebola will stay in Africa. But one shouldn’t count on it. Readers will recall reports Libyan hospital systems are collapsing as expatriate health workers, who make up 80% of medical personnel, evacuate. The hospital systems in Syria and Iraq are probably highly degraded by now. Two days ago, a Saudi businessman died after returning from West Africa, after exhibiting Ebola-like symptoms, but the diagnosis has not been confirmed. The wars of the region have created an extraordinary fertile ground for epidemic.

          Yeah, it would be a shame if Ebola made it into the new islamofascist state in Iraq. Oh, well. We can always hope.

    WHO declares Ebola an International Health Emergency

    The world’s worst outbreak of Ebola that has killed nearly 1,000 people in West Africa represents an international health emergency and could continue spreading for months, the World Health Organization said on Friday.

    …”The outbreak is moving faster than we can control it,” WHO Director-General
    Margaret Chan told reporters on a telephone briefing from her Geneva headquarters.

    But don’t worry, bringing Ebola victims to the US present absolutely no health risk. Sorry fools, but regardless of what precautions we take the best and safest solution will always be not bringing the disease into this country.

  • jim_m

    Ebola patients may experience fever, vomiting, diarrhea, body aches and uncontrollable bleeding from all openings in the body, including the eyes, mouth and ears.

    Actually, many of those symptoms sound like people that have been listening to an obama speech.

    Head of the CDC now says that Ebola coming to America is “inevitable

    The spread
    of Ebola to the USA is “inevitable,” said the head of the US Centers for
    Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday. Tom Frieden made the
    statement in a House Subcommittee hearing, adding that he does not think
    there will be a “large Ebola outbreak” in the U.S. Does he think there
    will be small ones?
