(NaturalNews) Ebola is now confirmed in New York City. I’ve just finished watching the press conference with Cuomo, de Blasio and Dr. Mary Travi Bassett, and what I’m hearing from these people is extremely irresponsible to public safety.
For starters, every official in the press conference repeated over and over again that there was near-zero risk of anyone contracting Ebola from Dr. Spencer, even though he visited bowling alleys, rode in an Uber car and traveled in the NYC subway system just hours before being confirmed positive with Ebola. Yet as Dr. Bassett explained, once Dr. Spencer had a fever, he was “removed from his home in an orderly manner” by health workers who were “wearing full protective gear.”
Why is full protective gear necessary if Dr. Spencer isn’t contagious as they claim? Logically, you can’t have it both ways: either Dr. Spencer is contagious and the gear is necessary, or he’s not contagious and there’s no reason to wear the gear. But if there’s no reason to wear the gear, then why were health workers wearing the gear?
Essentially, NYC officials think we are all just so incredibly stupid that we won’t notice this glaring contradiction.
Dr. Spencer rode the subway just hours earlier
Secondly, Dr. Bassett confirmed that Dr. Spencer rode on the A Train, the No. 1 train and the L train, all part of the New York subway transit system. But none of the New York health officials expressed any concern whatsoever about the fact that an Ebola carrier was running around the NYC subway system. This is a disingenuous and even dangerous P.R. strategy to try to downplay the severity of what’s really happening: a level-4 biohazard virus with no known treatments or cures is now on the loose in New York City.
In fact, NYC officials adopted an excuse-making stance for Dr. Spencer, stating, “He limited his contact with people” even though other news reports have stated he was at bowling alleys and traveling on the NYC subway systems. These two statements contradict each other, obviously, yet somehow NYC officials assign no blame whatsoever to Dr. Spencer, even going out of their way to make excuses for him. “He took his temperature three times a day… he went jogging so he couldn’t have been very ill… he’s a doctor so he knows what he’s dealing with…” etc. Apparently Dr. Spencer can do no wrong, even if he may have exposed any number of New Yorkers to a possible Ebola infection.
