    Nigerian Doctor Who Treated American Ebola Casualty, Contracts Virus; Troops Deployed In Liberia
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/04/2014 - 11:51
    The Lagos doctor who treated American Patrick Sawyer (who died from Ebola in late July) has been confirmed as infected by the deadly virus by Nigerian authorities. This is Nigeria's second confirmed case of Ebola but what is most concerning is the fact that the doctor's infection suggests contagion is less well-contained that authorities have claimed - especially in light of the fact that they did not quarantine Sawyer's fellow passengers. Nigeria is now the fourth nation to report Ebola cases, as Sierra Leone and Liberia are deploying hundreds of troops under an emergency plan to "contain" the worst outbreak of Ebola virus in history.

    i read somewhere that this dr was extremely upset about being taken into quarantine, insisting he be released, called some gov contacts to try to get the hospital to release him and the hospital refused. he was on his way to the US for this upcoming conference i think. really got mad, kicked and screamed fought against the hospital staff an even pissed in them.

    then the symptoms showed up, got sick and died. now others infected because of him. can you imagine what would have happened if he was allowed to continue on to the US? all because he was a doctor and 'knew better' than others who confined him?

    Id rather be deplorable than despicable.

    When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.

    Jazzy, I think you're confusing the dr with the patient. The patient was the one who threw a fit (even urinating on the nurses) and called his higher ups to get a release. Was a member of the Liberian Finance Committee, who said they "had to have him". He was released and died at the airport. He lived with his wife in the US and WOULD have been returning to her after the meeting.

    Thanks, HW, I think this will be very useful.

We have to make people...lift their eyes back to the horizon and see the line of ancestors behind us saying, 'Make my life have meaning.' And to our inheritors before us saying, 'Create the world we will live in.' I mean, we're not just holding jobs and having dinner. We are in the process of building the future."
