Update 4:30pm CST: Safe to assume the infected man from Liberia is an illegal alien – when hospital officials asked him for a Social Security Number he had none and no alien card. The woman and 4 kids who he stayed with are in quarantine in their apartment but the bed sheets the man slept in while sweating from Ebola fever are still there, no HAZ MAT clean up has taken place yet and the vomit the man spit up was cleaned up a few minutes ago by someone from the Apartment complex who was wearing NO PROTECTIVE GEAR, no gloves, no mask, no protective suit — hosing it off into the grass on the side of the sidewalk. Alex Jones reported on a CDC memo a few days ago that they expect 3.5 million new cases over the next 3 to 4 months and have a request for 500,000 doses of antidote that won’t be ready until January of 2015. Meanwhile HAZ MAT is cleaning up 1 of the 4 schools the children attended.
